Endometriosis can be a debilitating experience month after month and relief from pain and discomfort may be obtained through the use of dietary modifications, herbal medicine and supplementation.
The formation of scar tissue and adhesions in the pelvic area after surgery for removal of endometriosis is common. These are part of the normal healing process and can cause pain and pelvic congestion.
It is important to begin to reduce the formation of scar tissue and adhesions as soon after surgery as possible. Techniques taught to reduce the build up of scar tissue and adhesions include:
- use of castor oil packs
- taking enzymes to help break down the protein fibres
- self abdominal massage
