Endometriosis and Bupleurum

As we mentioned in previous articles, endometriosis growing somewhere else other than the endometrium also reacts to hormonal signals of the monthly menstrual cycle by building up tissue, breaking it, and eliminating it through the menstrual period. As we know, herbs play a very important role in some cultures in treating all kinds of diseases. In this article, we will discuss how bupleurum helps to treat endometriosis.

I. Definition
Bupleurum is a plant belonging to the umbelliferae family. It is a medicinal root found in East Asia. It has been used in Chinese medicine in treating infections with fever, hemorrhoids, and indigestion.

II. How bupleurum effects women with endometriosis
1. Liver cleansing
Bupleurum has been used in Chinese medicine to cleanse the liver caused by accumulation of environmental toxins which helps to improve the protein and fat metabolism thereby helping to regulate the levels of estrogen that cause menstrual pain.

2. Improve digestive system
It is also said to improve the digestive absorption of vital vitamins and minerals by strengthening the microorganisms in the digestive tract. This is essential for women with endometriosis, because some have been found to have low levels of vital vitamins and minerals leading to menstrual disorder.

3. Nervous system and hormone balancing
Bupleurum is not a tonic medicine, but when used together with other herbs it increases the medicine's effectiveness. The combination of buplerrum and peony helps in treating hormonal imbalance that cause menstrual cramps and abdominal pains, premenstrual syndrome, and strengthens the nervous system thus reducing symptoms of endometriosis such as anxiety, depression, etc.

4. Muscle tension
Since it helps to increase the metabolism of protein and fatty acid, it helps to balance the production of prostaglandins hormones that control the uterine muscles. As we know, over-production of certain members of protagslandins hormones are the main cause of abdominal pain.

Since bupleurum stimulates the liver function in the metabolism, it also helps to reduce inflammation caused by endometriosis implants and adhesion as well as treating irregular menstruation.

Since endometriosis is treatable and manageable by natural remedies and a self help course, if you have endometroisis, please look on the bright side.
