Did you know that endometriosis affects an estimated 1 in 10 women during their reproductive years? That’s approximately 176 million women in the world. With so many women impacted each year, it’s important to know what the disease is, and how we as members of the medical community can help ease the burden of the condition and educate the public.
According to the Mayo Clinic, endometriosis is a painful disorder in which tissue similar to the endometrium tissue grows outside of the uterus. Endometriosis most commonly involves the ovaries, fallopian tubes and the tissue lining a woman’s pelvis.
Because the tissue acts very similarly to endometrium tissue, it thickens, breaks down and sheds with each menstrual cycle. But the tissue has no way to exit the body, it becomes trapped and can form cysts and eventually developdevelope thick scar tissue, adhesions, and fibrous tissues which can cause the surrounding organs to stick together.
Endometriosis can cause excruciating pain, especially during menstrual cycles. Later in life, it may cause fertility issues.
Currently, there is no cure for endometriosis. So what can be done to combat the pain?
While no cures exist, there are ways to relieve the pain of endometriosis. However, every woman’s symptoms vary, so no two therapies will work the same.
- Invest in a heating blanket: Applying heat to the areas you feel the most cramping and pain can be relieved with added heat.
- Stay hydrated: Though you may feel ill, it’s important to drink and stay hydrated as it can help minimize bloating and cramping.
- Maintain a healthy lifestyle through exercise and diet.
- Try holistic and alternative forms of therapies such as acupuncture and meditation.
In addition to these practices, you may also want to consider using alternative therapies such as far-infrared technology.
The Power of Far-Infrared to Help Ease Endometriosis Pain
In a study that reviewed the benefits of using far-infrared for the management of menstrual cramping, it was found that there was an increased abdominal temperature of 0.6°C and a 3.27% increase in abdominal blood flow in the FIR group, thus helping with ease pain. The research reported a shortened pain duration of the FIR group as well, from 2.5 to 1.8 days.
