Overview

Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue that lines the uterus (endometrium) grows outside of the uterus. This can cause pain, inflammation, and scarring. Endometriosis most commonly affects women of childbearing age, but it can occur at any age.

There is no cure for endometriosis, but there are treatments that can help relieve symptoms and improve fertility. Some women find relief with over-the-counter or prescription medications. Others opt for natural remedies.

Before trying any natural remedy for endometriosis, it’s important to speak with your doctor. Some herbs and supplements can interact with medications or make underlying conditions worse.

Natural Remedies For Endometriosis

Here are some natural remedies that have been studied for endometriosis:

1. Omega-3 fatty acids

Omega-3 fatty acids are found in fish oil and some plant oils. They’re known for their anti-inflammatory properties. This may make them helpful in treating the pain and inflammation associated with endometriosis.

A small study published in 2015 found that women who took omega-3 supplements had less pelvic pain than those who didn’t take the supplements. The women who took omega-3s also had lower levels of a biomarker for endometriosis. This suggests that omega-3s may be able to reduce the amount of endometriosis tissue present.

Omega-3 supplements are available in capsules or liquids . They can also be found in some foods, such as salmon, flaxseeds, and chia seeds.

2. Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a nutrient that helps the body absorb calcium. It’s often called the “sunshine vitamin” because our bodies make it when our skin is exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D is also found in some foods and supplements.

Vitamin D has been shown to reduce pain in women with endometriosis. A small study published in 2016 found that vitamin D supplements reduced pelvic pain by almost 50 percent after three months of treatment. The women who took vitamin D were also less likely to need pain medication than those who didn’t take the supplement.

You can get vitamin D from sun exposure, food, and supplements. The best way to get vitamin D is through a combination of all three.

3. Curcumin

Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric. It’s a yellow-pigmented spice that’s often used in Indian cuisine. Curcumin has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

A small study published in 2016 found that curcumin was as effective as ibuprofen in reducing pain associated with endometriosis.

The women who took curcumin also had lower levels of a biomarker for endometriosis than those who didn’t take the supplement. These results suggest that curcumin may help reduce the amount of endometriosis tissue present.

Curcumin supplements are available in capsules or powders. You can also find curcumin in some foods, such as turmeric powder, curry powder, and yellow mustard.

4. DIM (Diindolylmethane)

DIM is a compound found in cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts. It’s known for its anti-inflammatory and hormone-balancing properties.

A small study published in 2016 found that DIM supplements reduced the pain associated with endometriosis by nearly 50 percent after three months of treatment. The women who took DIM were also less likely to need pain medication than those who didn’t take the supplement.

DIM supplements are available in capsules or powders. You can also find DIM in some foods, such as broccoli, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts.

5. Green tea

Green tea is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. It’s rich in antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties. These may make green tea helpful in treating the pain and inflammation associated with endometriosis.

A small study published in 2015 found that green tea supplements reduced pelvic pain by nearly 50 percent after three months of treatment. The women who took green tea were also less likely to need pain medication than those who didn’t take the supplement.

Green tea supplements are available in capsules or powders. You can also find green tea in some foods, such as matcha powder and sencha powder.
