Endometriosis and Chaste tree Berry

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 chaste tree berry helps to treat endometriosis.

I. Definition
Chaste tree is a large shrub native to the Mediterranean and southern Europe. It has been used to treat hormone imbalance associated with pre-menstrual syndrome In Europe.

II. How chaste tree berry effects women with endometriosis
1. Immune system
Chaste tree contains irioids, a plant element that helps to increase the secondary metabolism which strengthens our immune system to fight inflammation, abnormal cell growth, and the invasion of virus.

2 Nervous system
Irioids also helps to release the tension of overactive cells in the brain during menstrual cycle resulting in lowering the symptoms of endometriosis such as irritation, mood swing, anxiety, and loss of sexual desire.

3. Isoflavones
Some women with endometriosis may experience heavy flow during menstruation caused by the breaking off of the small vein in the abdomen. Isoflavones in the chaste tree berry helps to strengthen the capillary wall, thus reducing the flow and the tension of overactive uterine muscles that cause menstrual pain.

4. Hormone balancing
Chaste tree berry contains high levels of plant progesterone which is necessary for women with endometriosis to balance the levels of estrogen that cause menstrual cramps. Intake of chaste tree might also increase sexual desire by converting progesterone to testosterone.

5. Absence of period
Since absence of period may be caused by lower levels of progesterone in the body resulting in lacking of ovulation. Chaste tree contains progesterone which is necessary during menstrual cycle to bring on the menstruation.

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