A common symptom of endometriosis is pelvic pain and the diagnosis needs to be confirmed to rule out other disorders such as ovarian tumors and pelvic inflammatory disease. Endometriosis is the growth of unwanted accumulated tissue in the women’s pelvic cavity which can include the bladder and rectum. Chinese medicine practitioners treat this condition by using traditional treatments for period pain that have been used for centuries. Text books dating back 2000 years discuss treatments for “abdominal masses” using herbs such as Ze Lan Herba Lycopi Lucidi which are still in use today to promote blood circulation in the uterus and encourage removal of unwanted tissue. Many women seek an alternative to the use of modern pharmaceuticals for this condition which cause weight gain, decrease libido and even permanently leave the voice in a deep state.
