Endometriosis

Endometriosis

The body was made to heal itself. If your body is sore, there is a reason. Whatever the reason, when you support the body by addressing the pain at the causative level, tissue heals, pain eases, scar tissue softens, hormones and cytokines regulate. 

Healing is a sign of health. Support health, and the body can heal. 

What is Endometriosis?  

Endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to what lines the uterus grows outside it, mainly in the pelvis. When these tissues grow where they shouldn't, like on organs or in the abdominal area, they can cause pain, scars, and stick organs together. Sometimes this tissue can even grow into the uterine wall, which is called adenomyosis.

 

It's a common issue, possibly affecting 1 to 10 out of every 100 women, and up to half of women who have trouble getting pregnant. But it often takes a long time to diagnose because it doesn't show many symptoms early on. People might just think their period pain is normal until things get worse. The diagnosis usually requires laparoscopic surgery, delaying diagnosis between 8 to 10 years, by which time the condition can be severe.

 

People with endometriosis might also have other issues like tummy troubles (like IBS), allergies, or immune problems. There's even a higher chance of certain cancers.

 

Apart from the physical pain and difficulty getting pregnant, endometriosis can also make people feel down or stressed. It can deeply affect quality of life.

 

So, if you notice any symptoms that get worse during your period, it might be worth thinking about endometriosis, particularly in cases where severe, stabbing and debilitating pain is present with periods.

The Cell Distress Cycle

The cell distress cycle is a concept that highlights the interconnected relationship between inflammation, cellular stress, and the progression of various chronic health conditions, including endometriosis. It involves a complex negative feedback loop whereby the completion of the inflammatory stage switches cells over into a healing cycle. If the inflammation never switches off, the repair phase never gets activated. In the context of endometriosis, the cell distress cycle can perpetuate a cycle of inflammatory tissue damage, leading to further inflammation, pain and other symptoms.

The continued presence of these lesions and the associated inflammation can perpetuate the cell distress cycle, contributing to ongoing pain, hormonal imbalances, immune system dysregulation, and other symptoms commonly associated with endometriosis. Furthermore, the cycle may disrupt normal cellular signalling, impact hormonal homeostasis, and compromise the overall health of the reproductive system.

Managing the cell distress cycle in endometriosis involves addressing the underlying inflammatory processes, reducing oxidative stress, supporting tissue repair, reducing inflammation and restoring hormonal balance. Anti-inflammatory interventions such as FSMT together with nutritional, herbal, dietary and lifestyle modifications can help break the cycle.

Frequency Specific Microcurrent Therapy for Endometriosis

Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) is a therapeutic technique that utilizes low-level electrical currents to target specific tissues and cells in the body, promoting the natural healing process and reducing inflammation and pain. In the context of endometriosis, FSM has shown promising results in managing pain, reducing inflammation, and improving tissue healing. By delivering specific frequencies through electrodes placed on the skin, FSM aims to restore cellular resonance and promote the body's self-repair mechanisms.

FSM is believed to work by modulating cellular signalling, promoting the release of endorphins, and facilitating the repair of damaged tissues. It can help alleviate the symptoms of endometriosis by reducing pelvic pain, addressing muscular tension, and improving blood flow to the affected areas. Additionally, FSM may support hormonal balance, immune function, and overall well-being, contributing to a holistic approach to managing endometriosis.

 

Releasing scar tissue in the abdominal cavity with FSMT appears to improve circulation and tissue remodelling in the abdomen. I am always going for the ability to press deeply on my clients abdomen with zero pain, just a session of mild pressure. The number of sessions required for this depends of the cause and the severity of the condition, but I have found it extremely useful for endometriosis, inflammatory bowel disorders and post surgical recovery.
