How Acupuncture can help with Endometriosis

Over the last week, 4-10 March 2013, it’s been Endometriosis Awareness Week.

The exact cause of this distressing condition is not known, only that endometrial tissue grows outside the uterus – most often in the pelvic cavity but some sufferers can find it in other organs, including the lungs.

For around 1.5 million women in the UK, this ectopic tissue continues to be affected by the monthly hormonal changes of the menstrual cycle, bleeding in places where it should not and causing inflammation and pain.

Acupuncture For Endometriosis

The British Acupuncture Council have produced a factsheet which explains how
acupuncture can help the symptoms of Endometriosis by reducing inflammation, stimulating the nerves located in the tissues which promotes the release of endorphins that can change the way pain is processed in the brain and spinal cord. (Zhao 2008, Han 2004, Zijlstra 2003, Pomeranz 1987)

If you suffer with the monthly trauma of Endometriosis, treatment with acupuncture can help to alleviate some of the symptoms.

All of this started because a friend of mine Peter Jones asked me to be a first reader of his book “How to do everything and be happy ”

I happily agreed and so decided that to give him genuine feedback I would  follow the books advise . One of the things was to create this list which I had ” open my own centre” as the top item , and writing it down somehow changed something, making it more tangible . It seemed possible . Strangely the first thing I did was draw a tree and then a floor plan of how I would like it to be laid out and that is nearly exactly how the centre now is .
