Endometriosis symptoms are the product of a condition that relates to the cells which form the lining of the uterus. These are called endometrial cells. Hormone imbalances induced by environmental poisons, especially the xeno-estrogens, from man-made chemicals, petrochemicals and synthetic hormone drugs, are considered by many authorities to be a likely cause of the problem. Symptoms range from increased pain during menstruation, nausea and perhaps the most feared of all the symptoms is ‘infertility’. Forty per cent of women with endometriosis are ‘infertile’.
Some authorities believe it is caused by excessive oestrogen (especially the xeno-oestrogens) as it often disappears after an increase in progesterone levels. It disappears entirely with menopause, when of course our own oestrogen levels drop.
For reasons unknown at present, some of these cells migrate to other parts of the body. They have been found in the wall of the uterus, anywhere in the pelvic region, on the ovaries, bladder, lungs, brain and rectum. They cannot be shed like normal uterine cells but instead form cysts which grow larger with each menstruation causing much pain.
The prevention and control of the condition may be assisted by simulating pregnancy, when a women’s body makes 50 to 100 times the normal monthly quantity of progesterone. So applying large amounts of Naturone daily can alleviate the symptoms, and prevent further cells growing. The condition disappears slowly and sometimes not entirely until menopause. Progesterone supplementation also helps with the pain.
