Endometriosis is a female disease in which endometrial-like tissue is found outside of the uterus in other parts of the body. Lesions are characterized as estrogen-dependent, benign, inflammatory, stem-cell driven and at times progressive with diffuse fibrosis, deep infiltration, and resistance to apoptosis (cell death) and progesterone. This tissue, which normally lines the uterus, is associated with monthly menstruation and is often characterized by abnormal painful and heavy periods, as well as pelvic pain, severe cramps, and pain with sex. (dyspareunia).
Endometriosis is a painful reproductive disorder that affects 176 million women worldwide . The economic impact of endometriosis is staggering: Businesses lose billions of dollars each year in lost productivity and work time because of the disease. A leading cause of infertility and chronic pelvic pain, it has also been linked to other health concerns, including certain autoimmune diseases, fibroids, adenomyosis, interstitial cystitis, and even certain cancers. It is also one of the leading reasons for laparoscopic surgery and hysterectomy in the United States. (via https://www.drseckin.com/endometriosis)

Supplements for Endometriosis
There are many supplements out there. But not all are as effective as others. I have selected my absolute favorites for endometriosis and created a list so you can purchase them.
1. You need to create an account in order to purchase them. First click this link and create an account.
2. Once you log in, follow the steps in the image below
3. Search for “Endometriosis” using the Dispensary categories
My absolute favorite is NEPRINOL. It’s not the cheapest but it works wonders. I recommend it to all my endometriosis patients trying to get pregnant. It is not the easiest to find, as it’s only sold through practitioners sites or at natural clinics.
