Do you know about this Alternative Treatment Option For Endometriosis?

Affecting an estimated 4-10% of women worldwide, endometriosis is all-too-common disease in which cells from the uterus begin to grow outside the uterine cavity. Symptoms vary depending on a number of different factors, but severe pelvic pain is reported by many women suffering from this disease. Thankfully, there are several effective treatment options available for endometriosis.

Most women who suffer from endometriosis assume conventional treatment (e.g. prescription painkillers, anti-inflammatory drugs, surgery, hormone therapy, oral contraceptive) is the best course of action. The problem with such treatments is that they often come with unwanted side effects. Undergoing hormone therapy, for instance, may lead to infertility, while painkillers only mask the problem without treating its underlying cause.

At Starting Point Acupuncture, we take a holistic approach to helping endometriosis. Women often have “tried everything else” yet still have debilitating pain, irregular cycles, and often suffer from infertility. Acupuncture can provide a safe and effective way to treat a variety of conditions while improving the body’s health. We use a combined and integrated approach to care, often using acupuncture treatments alongside treatments to help regulate hormones, reduce pain, and increase quality of life.
