Endometriosis and integrated holistic approach

Dr. Linda Togni, Naturopath

Endometriosis is a real disease. It's about a chronic condition and little known which causes real health problems for millions of women. The integrated holistic approach can lead to benefits on a physical-emotional level.

From an epidemiological point of view, in Italy 10-15% of women of reproductive age are affected by endometriosis. The pathology affects approximately 30-50% of infertile women or those who have difficulty conceiving. It is estimated that 3 million women in Italy and more than 150 million worldwide suffer from endometriosis. There are at least 3 million women with a confirmed diagnosis. The peak occurs between the ages of 25 and 35, but the pathology can also appear in adolescence. However, the diagnosis often comes after a long and expensive journey, most often experienced with serious psychological and emotional repercussions for the woman.

What is endometriosis?

Endometriosis is defined as a pathology:

  • Benign
  • Chronic inflammatory
  • Relapsing
  • Invasive and progressive
  • Disabling the quality of life due to the presence of various types of pain, reduction of reproductive capacity and pelvic complications

How does endometriosis manifest itself?

Endometriosis is a gynecological disease that consists in the abnormal presence of the endometrium which is the mucosa that lines the inside of the uterine cavity and is found outside of it, that is, it is present in other locations where it should not be. This anomaly causes chronic inflammation in the body that is harmful to the female system, which manifests itself through severe intestinal pain and suffering.

The main organs affected are: uterus, ovaries, tubes, rectum, bladder, peritoneum, recto-vaginal septum and utero-sacral ligaments. But they can also be found in extra-pelvic areas, such as in the lung, navel, vulva, inguinal canal, nasal mucosal surgical scars and nerves.

Endometriosis is a disease that invalidates many aspects of a woman's life both on a physical, psychological-emotional, economic, social and work level.

In addition to the pain, in most cases there will be a lot of absences both at work and at school due to menstrual pain, you will have difficulty concentrating and you will feel not understood by others (mates, colleagues, parents) or not believed by the doctors themselves.

Very often sexual relations will be painful, with the fear of not being attractive enough, they will feel guilty by not accepting the body that has betrayed them for them.

You will have distrust, loss of self-esteem, loss of femininity and a lot of anger towards yourself, doctors, friends and for the answers that you cannot find inside and outside yourself, you will tend to close yourself in like a hedgehog, repressing your femininity and social life.

Furthermore, endometriosis is also a couple's disease as it will affect the relationship with your partner. Often there will be a tendency to experience sexuality in a fearful way or aimed only at pregnancy, which is precisely why the partner must be a great ally for the woman and participate together with her in the management of the disease (help could consist of couple psychotherapy).

Furthermore, the search for pregnancy is very often experienced as a moment of great frustration, anxiety about waiting or envy of other mothers and this whole psychological condition does not help on an organic level for conception.

For this reason, it is essential for a woman suffering from Endometriosis to ask for help and support from various trusted professionals such as a psychotherapist, gynecologist, naturopath or physiotherapist to obtain 360 degree psycho-physical, emotional and energetic support in managing pain and accepting the disease in harmony and well-being with oneself and others.

How can the holistic approach support those suffering from endometriosis?

The holistic world takes into consideration the well-being of the person in its many "shades": on a psycho-physical, emotional, energetic, constitutional level, promoting prevention and the body's innate ability to bring itself back into homeostasis or balance, respecting every single person.

The objective is to manage pain, to provide relief, greater balance and improve the quality of life, offering a global vision of the person, through multidisciplinary support, to provide awareness from a complementary point of view to conventional medicine which treats mainly the symptoms.

The holistic and naturopathic approach integrates some lifestyle advice to improve:

  • Pain management
  • Digestion
  • Life energy
  • Sleep quality
  • Manage mood swings and promote positive thinking
  • Reduce various inflammations
  • Raise the immune system naturally
  • Having greater personal centering and balance
  • Knowing how to eat more consciously
  • Stress management
  • Promote detoxification of the body and mind in a natural way

Literature teaches us that 80% of women affected by endometriosis present symptoms of anxiety and depression (Sepulcri et al. 2009) therefore it is important to pay attention not only on a physical level but also on an emotional, spiritual and mental level.

Our deepest identity, our unconscious, our unexpressed emotions and our unheard needs are sedimented in our body and we must not forget this if we want to live a more aware and happy life.

Working in synergy, in addition to female reflexology and energy treatments, medicinal plants or supplements can also be integrated, effective for improving certain bodily and emotional situations of women with endometriosis. All this always in compliance with any pharmacological therapies prescribed by the Doctor or Gynecologist which must always be consulted.
