Ayurvedic Treatment of Endometriosis:
Introduction: Endometriosis is defined as a chronic disease and the most common gynecological condition that can affect women in their reproductive years. The word endometriosis comes from the word ‘endometrium’ and is defined as the lining membrane of the uterus. “Endo” means inside, and “metra” means womb or uterus. Generally, the lining grows inside the uterus each month and then bleeds away during a menstrual cycle. The endometriosis condition arises when small pieces of endometrial tissues are seen in places outside the uterus that bleed into the peritoneal cavity and trigger severe, pain, local inflammation, and tenderness.
Causes of Endometriosis:
The exact cause of endometriosis is not known, but the following are some factors that are responsible for the development of this health condition:
- The upward flow of menstrual blood into the reproductive glands,
- Menstrual cycle issues,
- Exposure to industrial chemicals,
- Surgical scar implantation,
- Transportation of the endometrial cells,
- Hormone imbalances: Imbalance in the hormones is the major cause and in endometriosis, high levels of estrogen can be a causative factor.
Symptoms of Endometriosis:
Below-mentioned is some of the most common symptoms of endometriosis that can be experienced by women:

- Other symptoms observed like a small lump in the umbilicus, general weakness, fatigue, and pain below the ribs
Ayurvedic View of Endometriosis:
According to the Ayurveda, all the three doshas – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha dosha is responsible for developing endometriosis as Vata dosha is responsible for the pain, Pitta dosha causes the imbalance inflow of blood, which leads to inflammation, Kapha dosha increases the build-up of endometrial cells.
Pathophysiology of Endometriosis in Ayurveda:
As per Ayurveda, all movements that occur in our body are due to Vata Dosha. Apana Vata is the type of vata and its functioning includes acts of defecation, urination, flatulence, the expulsion of the fetus during birth, and expulsion of blood during periods. When a woman does certain things in her diet/and lifestyle activities that imbalance the functioning of Apana Vata, then it starts moving upwards instead of downwards, thus this leads to cause menstruation blood to move upward in the pelvic cavity instead of coming out through the vagina.
As a result, endometrial (uterine lining) gets lodged on pelvic organs like the intestine, and ovaries, eventually, endometrium starts growing in abnormal places and starts bleeding during periods along with severe pain, and inflammation.

In endometriosis, panchakarma serves as a holistic cleanse and works as the best option for the Ayurvedic treatment of Endometriosis. Medicated enema or purgation helps in the elimination of toxins and balances the aggravated doshas.

Also fresh and seasonal fruits and vegetables, nuts, and whole grains are the best choices to control the symptoms to some extent. Along with this, unhealthy diet and lifestyle activities should be strictly avoided.
