Some women, during their monthly period (menstruation), bleed severely heavy from the vagina, and sometimes from the rectum. Most times this is caused by Endometriosis.
And what is Endometriosis exactly? It is an inflammation, many times a severe inflammation, caused by endometrial tissue that is not shed properly during menstruation. This tissue escapes the uterus and spreads and attacks other organs in the body such as: lymph nodes, fallopian tubes, ovaries, bladder, kidneys, rectum, and lungs. Excessive pain develops when, with time, the tissue thickens and breaks down to bleeding. Research shows 40-55% of infertility in American women is due to Endometriosis. And, scar tissue builds up, increasing the risk of uterine and even breast fibroids.
Studies also show a link between Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome following an endometriosis diagnosis. Western conventional medicine focuses on prescribing chemical hormone medications with side effects that include: acne, unwanted facial and body hair growth, and hot flashes.
Causes of Endometriosis? Yeast infections (click to read my article on Yeast Infections), like candida, which create small perforations on the uterine wall, are a common cause of endometriosis. A diet high in caffeine, fat, low essential fatty acids (EFA), low magnesium levels, is also very much a contributor to this painful female problem. And again, something I have pointed out many times is one of the causes of many female sexual and hormonal health challenges, estrogen dominance/high estrogen levels along with low progesterone are hormonal imbalances that cause abnormal behavior of the endometrium. A woman with this challenge desires relief immediately of this discomfort.

I recommend the following to patients and clients for minimum 60-90 days to reduce spasms and inflammation; to clear toxins, wastes and relieve pain; balance hormones; relieve overall tension and stress, and balance excess estrogen and progesterone. Click each link for detailed information.:
