176 million women worldwide have this disease…
We are talking about endometriosis.
Endometriosis is a disease where tissue that is similar to the lining of the uterus is found outside of the uterus in the peritoneal cavity, the pelvis and sometimes in the abdominal area. The symptoms listed above are but a few.
Often women do not realize they have endometriosis for years. Sometimes, they only find out when they discover they have trouble conceiving due to infertility.
CTV Edmonton recently profiled Ms. Beasley who suffered from endometriosis for 15 years before finally be diagnosed. That is not uncommon. We hope to spread the word, so that women can receive helpful treatment as early as possible.
The acupuncturists at Total Wellness Centre treat many women with endometriosis using acupuncture and herbs.
