Herbs for endometriosis

Posted by Mentha 9 CA (My Page) on

Hi All,
it's been a while since I've been on the herbalism forum. I have a question for all the herbal gurus. What herb(s) are used for endometriosis? I have had this problem for a long time, I remember taking something that helped, but have been out for years. It has gotten so bad that most pain meds don't dull the pain, except of course the ones strong enough to make one loopy. So I need to find a happy medium where I can function as a wife and mother should, without causing depression, or ditzy beavior. Is that asking for too much?

RE: Herbs for endometriosis

Combine 2 parts of Chaste-berries with 1 part of two of the following:

For liver support: Milk Thistle, Dandelion root, Vervain or Blue Flag.

For reducing pelvic congestion: Squaw vine, Motherwort, or Red Raspberry.

Combine 1 teaspoon Chaste-berries, 1 teaspoon Echinacea root, 1 teaspoon Wild Yam ,1 teaspoon Cramp Bark, 1/2 teaspoon Horsetail stalks, 1/2 teaspoon Red Raspberry leaves and 1/2 teaspoon Motherwort leaves with 1 litre water. Bring the mixture to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer gently for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and steep for 15 minutes. Strain out the herbs. Drink 2 cups daily.

Include Alfalfa, Peanuts, Flaxseed and Soy beans in the diet.

Use Kelp to add iron to the diet. The heavy monthly bleeding that is common in women with endometriosis often leads to iron deficiency.
