Ayurvedic Treatments for Endometriosis

In Ayurveda, endometriosis is believed to be the result of a vata imbalance. To correct a vata imbalance, Ayurvedic practitioners recommend establishing a regular daily routine, reducing workload, increasing the rest and sleep, practicing meditation, and adding to the diet a little more oil, sweet tasting foods (but not refined sugars), salt, and cooked warm foods such as cereal and stews. It is important to maintain a biological rhythm. Go to bed at about 10 PM and rise at 6 AM. This is the time when the earth's energy complements human energy. A program to remove excess waste (ama) and detoxification is also useful. Drink plenty of warm to hot water; and avoid meat, cheese, caffeine, and alcohol. On the fourteenth or fifteenth day of the cycle, use a laxative of four or five teaspoons of castor oil or senna tea followed by a light diet for the rest of the day.

For prevention of endometriosis, ayurvedic practitioners recommend that a woman reduce her activities as much as possible for the first three days of her period each month, though this might be unpractical to most busy women today. For exercise, a gentle walk is preferred over a jarring aerobics classes at this time.
