the normal clinical treatment of endometriosis is very difficult and has
not been very successful. Trying to identify and remove each endometrial
cell group is often only temporarily successful. Many of the cell groups
are simply too small to see and are missed in the surgery only to cause
the same problems later on. Another, more radical surgical approach is
to remove the ovaries, uterus, and fallopian tubes. The goal in this is
to reduce the woman’s hormone levels dramatically and bring a change
in the woman’s condition.

The use of
natural progesterone (which causes a woman’s body to believe it
is pregnant) against endometriosis is well documented and has even been
copied by mainstream pharmaceutical companies in the form of progestin,
which is a chemically altered version of progesterone.
the diagram scare you. Think of it like a puzzle where you try to find
the difference. One is correct, the others are altered. The diagram below
shows how a slight change in chemical makeup can make a very drastic difference.
look very similar however they are as different as... Well as different
as men and women.
John Lee M.D.
had this to say:
“Pregnancy often retards the progress of the disease and occasionally
cures it. With this in mind, other medical treatments attempt to create
a state of pseudo pregnancy, with long periods of supplemented progestin
to simulate the high progesterone levels of pregnancy. Unfortunately,
the high doses needed are often accompanied by side effects of the progestin
and breakthrough bleeding.
As an alternative, I have treated a number of endometriosis patients,
some after failed surgery, with natural progesterone and have observed
considerable success. Since we know that estrogen initiates endometrial
cell proliferation and the formation of blood vessel accumulation in the
endometrium, the aim of treatment is to block this monthly estrogen stimulus
to the aberrant endometrial islets. Progesterone stops further proliferation
of endometrial cells. I advised such women to use natural progesterone
cream from day six (6) of the cycle to day twenty-six (26) each month,
using one ounce of cream per week for three weeks, stopping just before
their expected period. This treatment requires patience. Over time (four
to six months), however, the monthly pains gradually subside as monthly
bleeding in the islets becomes less and healing of the inflammatory sites
occurs. The monthly discomfort may not disappear entirely but becomes
more tolerable. Endometriosis is cured by menopause. From my women patients,
I learned that Premenstrual Syndrome, PMS, was most often a sign of estrogen
dominance. I also recommend adding vitamin E in dosages of 600 IU at bedtime,
supplemental magnesium (300 milligrams a day), and vitamin B6 (50 milligrams
per day)*. This treatment is simple, safe, inexpensive, successful, and
Smith M.D. had this to say:
“What is it about pregnancy that cures endometriosis?
There are three types of estrogen that the body produces: estradiol, estrone,
and estriol. Estradiol produced during a normal menstrual cycle goes into
the cell receptor and stimulates the cell receptor strongly stimulating
endometriosis to grow. However, estrone and estriol go into the same receptor
and stimulates it weakly blocking out estradiol (estradiol stimulates
the endometriosis to grow). During pregnancy, the fetus produces precursors
to estriol in the fetus’s adrenal glands. Then, the placenta produces
estriol several orders of magnitude greater than the non-pregnant state.
Progesterone is also produced by the placenta during pregnancy. "Pro"
means "for" and gesterone means "gestation". During
regular menstrual cycles, a woman produces 20 mg per day of progesterone.
However, during the peak of pregnancy the woman's body produces 400 mg
per day of progesterone.
Thus, pregnancy may cure endometriosis in three ways. Progesterone tells
the cells to stop proliferating and differentiate (grow up into an adult
cell). Progesterone also signals the ovary to not ovulate and thus, the
ovary does not produce estradiol. Estriol goes into the estrogen receptor
and blocks out estradiol and xenoestrogens from stimulating the estrogen
receptor, and causing the endometriosis to grow.
By taking natural progesterone, a patient can fool the body into thinking
it is pregnant and stop the endometriosis from growing. Natural progesterone
is a natural bio identical hormone that your body produces during the
latter half of your menstrual cycle and all throughout pregnancy.
Natural progesterone indirectly signals the ovaries to stop producing
eggs and estradiol. Thus, natural progesterone commands the ovary to stop
signaling the endometriosis to grow.”
treatment of endometriosis is becoming more and more common and it is
not difficult to find an herbal cure for endometriosis that is both cheaper
and more effective. So then why don’t doctors recommend this avenue
of treatment? Simply put, there’s no money in it. The reason a mainstream
drug can be marketed is because it can be patented and corner the market.
But for an herbal remedy to be patented it must first be chemically altered
which can, and often does, cause terrible side effects. Unfortunately
many doctors will continue to proscribe these drugs despite the side effects.
Not because they want to hurt you or anybody else, I firmly believe that
the medical field is full of people who want to help you. They do this
simply because it is what they have been taught. Your most valuable weapon
against endometriosis or any ailment is your ability to think for yourself.
Look into the research, read through the data (yes, you are smart enough),
don’t just take the doctors word for it and don’t be afraid
to ask big questions. I’m not saying that this will put you in control
of the situation, but it will show you why the doctors believe what they
do and help you understand their decisions.
