Endometriosis and Cramp Bark

As we mentioned in previous articles endometriosis growing somewhere else other than the endometrium also reacts to hormonal signals of the monthly menstrual cycle by building up tissue, breaking it, and eliminating it through the menstrual period. As we know herbs play a very important role in some cultures in treating all kinds of diseases. In this article, we will discuss how cramp bark helps to treat endometriosis.

I. Definition
Cramp bark is also known as water elder or European cranberry bush, it grows to 4-5 m tall. The fruit is edible in small quantities, with a very acidic taste. It is said to have the best female medicine compared to other herbs.

II. How cramp bark effects women with endometriosis
1. Uterine relaxation
Cramp bark is said to help increase the blood flow to the abdominal region, thereby it helps to relax the uterus resulting in lessening menstrual pain.

2. Menstrual cramps
It is said that cramp bark is a reproductive muscle tonic medicine that helps to reduce overactive uterine muscles caused by over-production of certain hormones in the prostaglandins family.

3. Nervous tension emmenagogus
Since it is an emmenagogus, it helps to reduce tension of the nervous system that causes symptoms of endometriosis such as mood swing, irritation, anxiety, and depression.

4. Bring on period
Cramp bark has been used to bring on period either caused by hormone imbalance or blood stagnation in the reproductive system by increasing the blood flow to the abdominal region.

Since endometriosis is treatable and manageable by natural remedies and a self help course, if you have endometroisis, please look on the bright side.
