Endometriosis is a chronic medical condition that affects millions of people across the world. It occurs when tissue similar to the lining of the uterus (endometrium) grows outside the uterus, causing various symptoms and often severe pain. Endometriosis is a complex condition that can negatively impact your quality of life if left untreated.
What are the Symptoms of Endometriosis?
- Pelvic pain
- Painful periods (dysmenorrhea)
- Pain during intercourse (dyspareunia)
- Excessive menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia)
- Gastrointestinal issues (such as diarrhea, constipation, or bloating)
- Lower back pain
How Can Endometriosis Cause Infertility?
Additionally, hormonal imbalances associated with endometriosis can disrupt the menstrual cycle and ovulation, making it difficult for viable eggs to be released for fertilization.

Treatment for Endometriosis
However, many of these methods do not address the root cause of endometriosis. This is where seeing a holistic specialist can help. The goal of a holistic health specialist will be to identify the underlying health issue that is causing your endometriosis in the first place, which will then help to determine the best form of treatment. In most cases, a functional blood panel will also be run to gain a better understanding of hormone levels, and to get a clearer picture of how your body is functioning as a whole.
Treatment is personalized and will be different for each individual based on their situation and the specific findings. Most treatment plans will include a combination of nutritional therapy (oral or IV), neural therapy, herbs and nutritional supplements, minerals, peptides, coaching and education, and more. Holistic wellness treatment programs will typically last between 4 and 6 months, but might be longer depending on the needs of the client.
