Endometriosis and Ayurveda

 


Hope you guys had a great Diwali and are back on your health goals. For me as a 5th-stage endometriosis and adenomyosis patient, my fitness and appropriate eating are always a priority. So post-Diwali when with extended family I go easy on my discipline, I gradually switch gears back to my routine as early as I can. 


I had written to you earlier about: 




 


Today I want to write to you about the treatment of endometriosis. I have learned the hard way that endometriosis cannot be treated with Allopathic medicines which though help us manage the symptoms but injections like Lupron have long-term side effects on our body while the underlying disease is not eliminated from the root.


Laparoscopic surgery to remove endometrial tissue growths and Adenomyoma is pain relieving as well but they grow back very soon too. Uterus removal surgery is considered the ultimate treatment but it does not guarantee that you will be pain-free post undergoing the same. This precisely sums up my battle in the first 12 years of battling this disease which crippled my life to a great extent. Not that I did not try alternative medicine like homeopathy but unfortunately they failed to abate my colicky pain almost killing pain. 


Managing the pain symptoms and lifestyle changes were the best bet for keeping endometriosis at bay is what I concluded till May’22 when a very senior gynecologist in Delhi scheduled my surgery for organs(uterus, cervix, and ovaries) removal which she said may or may not relieve the pain.


I was not convinced as to why go under a knife if the problem cannot be eliminated. Thus I researched and dug and dug to find a worthy solution that can be trusted because my Cancer Antigen 125 was extremely high almost 5 times the permissible limit by then and by my Sai’s grace I landed on the SKK panchakarma page. 


I read several testimonials and success stories of Dr. Rani Gupta reversing endometriosis through Ayurvedic medication and Panchakarma. Meeting her was a turning point in my disease history. She told me that over time Ayurveda could reverse the pathology of endometriosis and I could be disease free. Her words were music to my ears and I enrolled with her.


 In June I underwent my first Vasti Panchkarma cycle and have been on Ayurvedic medication since then. My symptoms and quality of life are getting better day after day and now I am mostly able to manage my pain with Ayurvedic painkillers.


Post 5 months of treatment, my disease has almost stabilized and has not increased as per ultrasound and CA125 reports and I expect it to reverse in my second cycle of Vasti Panchkarma scheduled this week. I feel a lot more healthy now and am sure the universe shall surely conspire to make me disease-free for which I shall always be indebted to my doctor for her strong handholding and result-oriented approach.


Endometriosis affects approximately 10% of reproductive-age women and girls globally and the only treatment accepted so far is uterus removal which in no way guarantees the pain shall be gone as endometriosis is a full-body inflammation. 


The purpose of writing this article is to create awareness about Ayurveda having treatment for endometriosis in most cases. So if you know a near and dear one struggling with the same do guide them to consult a trustworthy Ayurvedic gynac as early as possible to attack the disease early.


 I have shared my first-hand experience here as a patient with a pure aim to let more and more people know about the non-invasive treatment of endometriosis in Ayurveda. 


I shall once again write to you all to update my health status once my treatment is over. Until then I am most positively keeping my fingers crossed with an unparalleled trust in my doctor.
