Home Remedies For Nosebleeds

Nosebleeds, also called epistaxes , involve bleeding from the inside of your nose. Many people have occasional nosebleeds, particularly younger children and older adults.
Although nosebleeds may be scary, they're generally only a minor annoyance and aren't dangerous. Frequent nosebleeds are those that occur more than once a week.
The lining of your nose contains many tiny blood vessels that lie close to the surface and are easily damaged.

The two most common causes of nosebleeds are:
Dry air — when your nasal membranes dry out, they're more susceptible to bleeding and infections
Nose picking

Other causes of nosebleeds include:
Acute sinusitis
Aspirin use
Bleeding disorders, such as hemophilia
Blood thinners (anticoagulants), such as warfarin and heparin
Chemical irritants, such as ammonia
Cocaine use
Common cold
Deviated septum
Foreign body in the nose
Nasal sprays, such as those used to treat allergies, if used frequently
Nonallergic rhinitis
Trauma to the nose

Less common causes of nosebleeds include:
Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia
Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP)
Nasal polyps
Nasal surgery
Nasal tumor
Second trimester pregnancy
In general, nosebleeds are not a symptom or result of high blood pressure. It is possible, but rare, that severe high blood pressure may worsen or prolong bleeding if you have a nosebleed.

Remedies for Nosebleed
1. Pinch the Nose
The easiest way to stop a nosebleed is the time-honored pinch cure. Pinching the nose sends pressure to the bleeding point in the nasal septum, which helps stop the flow of blood immediately.
Sit up straight with your head tilted slightly forward.
Using your thumb and index finger, pinch the soft part of your nose below the bony bridge.
Do this for 5 to 10 minutes. During this time, breathe through your mouth.
Release the pressure gently and sit quietly for 5 minutes.
Repeat as necessary until the bleeding stops.
Note: Do not lay flat, tilt your head back or put your head between your legs. Also, do not blow your nose.


Home Remedies For Gum Disease


Periodontitis is a serious gum infection that damages the soft tissue and destroys the bone that supports your teeth. Periodontitis can cause tooth loss or worse, an increased risk of heart attack or stroke and other serious health problems.
Periodontitis is common but largely preventable. Periodontitis is usually the result of poor oral hygiene. Brushing at least twice a day, flossing daily and getting regular dental checkups can greatly reduce your chance of developing periodontitis.

Signs and symptoms of periodontitis can include:
Bright red or purplish gums
Gums that feel tender when touched
Gums that pull away from your teeth (recede), making your teeth look longer than normal
New spaces developing between your teeth
Pus between your teeth and gums
Bad taste in your mouth
Loose teeth
A change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite
There are different types, or classes, of periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis is the most common class, affecting mostly adults, though children can be affected, too. Aggressive periodontitis usually begins in childhood or early adulthood and affects only a small number of people.

It's thought that periodontitis begins with plaque — a sticky film composed mainly of bacteria. Plaque forms on your teeth when starches and sugars in food interact with bacteria normally found in your mouth. Brushing and flossing your teeth removes plaque. But plaque re-forms quickly, usually within 24 hours.
Plaque that stays on your teeth longer than two or three days can harden under your gumline into tartar (calculus). Tartar also may form as a result of the mineral content of your saliva. Tartar makes plaque more difficult to remove and acts as a reservoir for bacteria. You can't get rid of tartar by brushing and flossing — you need a professional dental cleaning to remove it.
The longer that plaque and tartar remain on your teeth, the more damage they can do. Initially, they may simply irritate and inflame the gingiva, the part of your gum around the base of your teeth. This is called gingivitis, the mildest form of periodontal disease.
Ongoing inflammation eventually causes pockets to develop between your gums and teeth that fill with plaque, tartar and bacteria. Bacteria deposit endotoxin — a byproduct of their own metabolism — which is responsible for much of the inflammation around teeth. In time, these pockets become deeper and more bacteria accumulate, eventually advancing under your gum tissue. These deep infections cause a loss of tissue and bone. If too much bone is destroyed, you may lose one or more teeth.

Remedies for Gum Disease
1. Hydrogen Peroxide
Hydrogen peroxide works as a strong antibacterial agent that kills germs and fights gum disease. Plus, it helps whiten and brighten your pearly whites. Make sure you use the 3 percent hydrogen peroxide solution that typically comes in brown bottles, rather than the highly concentrated version.
Mix equal parts of hydrogen peroxide and water. Rinse your mouth with the solution for a few seconds, and then spit it out. Use it a few times a week until you are satisfied with the results.
Alternatively, mix hydrogen peroxide little by little into one teaspoon of baking soda to make a paste. Put the paste on your toothbrush and gently brush it on your gums and gum line. Finally, spit it out and rinse your mouth. Use it a few times a week for a few weeks.
You can also apply a paste of clove oil and hydrogen peroxide, leave it on for a few seconds and then spit it out. Repeat as needed.
Note: Do not use hydrogen peroxide too often; once a day is sufficient. Do not swallow it.


Home Remedies For Hay Fever

Hay Fever

Hay fever, also called allergic rhinitis, causes cold-like signs and symptoms, such as a runny nose, itchyeyes, congestion, sneezing and sinus pressure. But unlike a cold, hay fever isn't caused by a virus. Hay fever is caused by an allergic response to outdoor or indoor allergens, such as pollen, dust mites or tiny flecks of skin and saliva shed by cats, dogs and other animals with fur or feathers (pet dander).
Besides making you miserable, hay fever can affect your performance at work or school and generally interfere with your life. But you don't have to put up with annoying symptoms. You can learn to avoid triggers and find the right treatment.

Hay fever signs and symptoms can include:
  • Runny nose and nasal congestion
  • Watery, itchy, red eyes (allergic conjunctivitis)
  • Sneezing
  • Cough
  • Itchy nose, roof of mouth or throat
  • Swollen, blue-colored skin under the eyes (allergic shiners)
  • Postnasal drip
  • Fatigue
Seasonal factors
Your hay fever signs and symptoms may start or worsen at a particular time of year. Triggers include:
  • Tree pollen, which is common in early spring.
  • Grass pollen, which is common in late spring and summer.
  • Ragweed pollen, which is common in fall.
  • Dust mites, cockroaches and dander from pets can occur year-round (perennial). Symptoms to indoor allergens might worsen in winter, when houses are closed up.
  • Spoors from indoor and outdoor fungi and molds are considered both seasonal and perennial.
How CHRISTMAS TREES can cause hay fever

When you have hay fever, your immune system identifies a harmless airborne substance as harmful. Your immune system then produces antibodies to this harmless substance. The next time you come in contact with the substance, these antibodies signal your immune system to release chemicals such as histamine into your bloodstream, which cause a reaction that leads to the signs and symptoms of hay fever.

Remedies for Hay Fever
1. Local Honey
Honey can effectively treat hay fever due to the presence of bee pollen. It can also desensitize your body’s immune system to other pollens. Plus, it has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that give relief from various symptoms of hay fever. For best results, use locally harvested honey for protection against pollens in your area.
Consume one or more teaspoons of raw, unprocessed local honey three or four times a day to help relieve symptoms. In fact, eating raw local honey daily before hay fever season can even prevent the condition.
You can also mix one tablespoon of honey and three or four drops of fresh lemon juice in a glass of warm water and drink it immediately. Do this twice daily to help strengthen your immune system and fight off symptoms quickly.


Home Remedies For Blemishes

Since the breakouts are few and far between, it’s normal to question why you’ll have perfectly clear skin for weeks and then one day a blemish will form. Is it from stress? Is it from not washing your face? Is it diet related? PMS? The answer is not an easy one but if you still get occasional blemishes, ask yourself these questions…

Do you touch your face a lot?
This may come as a surprise, but subconsciously touching your face all day makes it quickly become the dirtiest part of your body.  While it’s important to wash your skin every night, it’s much better to try to prevent your hands from touching your face unnecessarily. This can add bacteria to the skin adding to acne bacteria and cause more problems.

Skin Tip: Keep your hands occupied. Get any kind of toy or gadget that you can play with in your hands at times when you are most likely to be touching your skin. This will help tremendously. Check out my No Picking! Twisty Toy. This is great and fun to fidget with to keep your hands busy.

Have you been eating more dairy than normal lately?
When you develop cystic breakouts (those hard, painful, underground blemishes that linger for weeks) on the chin, jaw line and neck area, it might be a sign that you’re getting more dairy in your diet than your body can tolerate. Your skin acts as an excretory system to get rid of things that your body is not in agreement with, so when you get too much dairy, it is by nature harder to digest and can come out in the form of cystic blemishes in the lower area of the face.

Skin Tip: The best way to determine if your acne cysts are directly related to your intake of dairy is to completely cut dairy out of your diet for at least three weeks. If you don’t develop any new cysts and you normally would have by now, then this might solve your problem! It doesn’t mean that you cannot eat any dairy at all.  Slowly introduce dairy back into your diet, and the point you start breaking out again is your body’s tolerance level.  Our Anti-Cyst Treatment works amazingly well as a spot treatment for healing cystic acne fast. (Read: Get Control Of Cystic Acne—Before It Scars Your Skin)

Have you been under tremendous stress?
Aside from my experience confirming this is true, the Stanford University School of Medicine conducted one such study in 2002. It was a small study that involved students suffering from acne. The college professors involved in the study conclusively proved that the exam stress worsened acne in these students. According to researchers, their findings indicated “Subjects who had the greatest increases in stress during examination periods also had the greatest exacerbation in acne severity”. Stress not only affects acne flare-up.  In general, it worsens the overall skin condition. It induces the adrenal glands into overproduction of cortisol, a steroid, which in turn makes sebaceous glands produce more oil and make skin extra oily. Thus the reason why in stressful periods, people experiencing an increase in acne get more inflamed, puss-filled papules than simple whiteheads or blackheads.

Skin Tip: The easiest solution to reducing stress is to get 7-8 hours of sleep every night. (Read: 10 Nighttime Skin Care Tips)

Do you not wash your skin at night?
Oil on the skin makes for a breeding ground of bacteria, and bacteria will cause blemishes. Sleeping with not only your makeup on, but also the addition of oil, dirt and debris that has built up on the skin during the day, can absolutely trigger new blemishes.

Skin Tip: The #1 reason why someone won’t wash his or her face at night is out of exhaustion. I certainly understand the discipline and effort it requires to perform your nighttime skin care routine, especially when you’re exhausted. But, you really must do it. It’s that simple.

Have you started using new skin care products?
When your skin is introduced to new products, sometimes you might get some initial blemish purging, especially if the products are giving your skin more exfoliation than normal. If it continues on more than two weeks, then they may not be a good fit for your skin.

Skin Tip: When introducing new products to your skin, it’s always recommended to use one product for 3-4 days before adding in a second one. If your skin is reacting negatively, you’ll be able to determine which product you should discontinue.  Get products recommended for your skin type by choosing one of our nine skin types.

Are you about to start your menstrual cycle?
Many women can experience a surge of blemishes at the start of their monthly cycle. This is completely normal, but can be very frustrating.

Are you peri-menopausal or going through menopause?
Hormones are chemical messengers, created by our bodies to regulate everything from metabolism to cell growth to reproductive cycles and mood. When they fluctuate, they can trigger weight gain, depression, sleeplessness and fatigue in addition to adult acne and breakouts. A common sign for hormonal imbalances is when your monthly cycle is inconsistent and sporadic, or has recently stopped.

Have you flown on a plane recently in the last few days or week? I can attest to this one. Flying on an airplane absolutely throws my skin out of whack. The cabins of airplanes have extremely low humidity, which cause the skin to get extremely dehydrated (lack of water). The dry air looks for moisture where it can get it and that means robbing it right from your skin! The dehydrated cells cause a buildup, which can trap oil underneath the skin resulting in post-flight breakouts.

Remedies for Blemishes
1. Lemon Juice
Lemon juice works as an excellent skin-lightening home remedy to reduce dark spots and hyperpigmentation due to its bleaching effect. Its high citric acid content exfoliates the skin, removes excess oil and kills acne-causing bacteria. It also minimizes the appearance of large pores and smoothes the skin.
Simply apply fresh lemon juice on your skin and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing it off. Do this daily for a month or so.
Alternatively, combine one-quarter teaspoon each of lemon juice and organic honey. Rub it on your skin and wash it off after 15 to 20 minutes. Repeat a few times a week for one month or until you see improvement.
You can also mix together equal parts of lemon juice and tomato juice. For extra exfoliation, add one tablespoon of oatmeal (optional). Apply the mixture on the affected area. Leave it on for about 15 minutes, and then rinse it off. Do this daily, or three or four times a week for about a month or until you get encouraging results.

2. Tomato Juice
Being rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, tomato juice is excellent for creating glowing and blemish-free skin. Plus, it helps shrink large pores and cure acne due to its astringent properties. Tomatoes are also good for reducing suntan due to their high lycopene content.
Massage your skin with tomato pulp. Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes, and then rinse it off with cool water. Follow this simple routine daily for several weeks or until you get the desired results.
To enjoy clear and healthy skin, also include fresh tomatoes in your daily diet.

3. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is rich in alpha hydroxy acids and hence lightens dark spots and blemishes.
In addition, it helps balance the skin’s pH levels, reduces excess oils and opens clogged pores.
Due to its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, apple cider vinegar also fights acne breakouts.
Mix one part organic apple cider vinegar and three parts water. If it seems too strong, you can increase the amount of water.
Dip a cotton ball in this solution and dab it on the affected area.
Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes, and then wash it off.
Use two or three times a day until the blemish fades away.

4. Potato
Potato juice contains starch that helps reduce pigmentation. It also diminishes dark circles under eyes.
Peel and grate one small potato. Extract the juice using a fine sieve or cheesecloth.
Soak a cotton ball in the juice and apply it on your skin. Leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing it off.
Do this daily for one month or until you are satisfied with the results.

5. Fuller’s Earth
Fuller’s earth, also known as multani mitti, is great for exfoliating your skin to remove dead skin cells and get rid of blemishes. It also absorbs excess oil and has a skin-lightening effect.
Add sufficient rose water, green tea, cucumber juice, lemon juice or just plain water to two tablespoons of fuller’s earth to make a smooth paste. Apply it on your skin, let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes, and then rinse it off.
You can also mix one teaspoon each of tomato juice and sandalwood powder in two teaspoons of fuller’s earth to make a smooth paste. Spread it evenly on your skin, and leave it on for 20 minutes before rinsing it off. Use either of these remedies once or twice a week until you get the desired results.

6. Aloe Vera
The succulent aloe vera gel contains polysaccharides that stimulate the growth of new skin cells and help heal scars and blemishes. Also, it has anti-inflammatory properties that benefit in natural acne treatment.
Extract fresh aloe vera gel from an aloe leaf and apply it on your skin. Leave it on until it dries completely before washing it off. Repeat daily for about a month or more. You can also create a mixture of two tablespoons of aloe vera gel and one teaspoon each of lemon juice and sugar. Gently rub it on your skin, let it sit for 15 minutes and then rinse it off. Do this two or three times a week until you get rid of the blemishes.

7. Strawberries
Strawberries are loaded with nutrients and antioxidants that help maintain clear skin. Being rich in vitamin C, alpha hydroxy acids, salicylic acid and ellagic acid, it exfoliates dead skin, fights acne and fades scars.
Mash two or three strawberries with a fork.
Mix them with two teaspoons each of plain yogurt and organic honey.
Gently rub it on your face and neck and leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes.
Then wipe it off with a warm washcloth. This will open the clogged pores.
Do this at least twice a week for several weeks.

8. Orange Peel
Orange peel works as a natural bleach to lighten your skin and clear acne scars and blemishes. It also helps reduce suntan. Moreover, being rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, it tones your skin and leaves a youthful glow.

Follow all the Tips to Avoid skin Blemishes.


Home Remedies For Measles

Measles is a childhood infection caused by a virus. Once quite common, measles can now almost always be prevented with a vaccine. Signs and symptoms of measles include cough, runny nose, inflamed eyes, sore throat, fever and a red, blotchy skin rash.

Also called rubeola, measles can be serious and even fatal for small children. While death rates have been falling worldwide as more children receive the measles vaccine, the disease still kills more than 100,000 people a year, most under the age of 5.

As a result of high vaccination rates, measles has not been widespread in the United States for more than a decade. Today, the United States averages about 60 cases of measles a year, and most of them originate outside the country.

Sign and Symptoms
Measles signs and symptoms appear 10 to 14 days after exposure to the virus. Signs and symptoms of measles typically include:
Inflamed eyes (conjunctivitis)
Tiny white spots with bluish-white centers on a red background found inside the mouth on the inner lining of the cheek also called Koplik's spots

A skin rash made up of large, flat blotches that often flow into one another. The infection occurs in sequential stages over a period of two to three weeks.

Infection and incubation. For the first 10 to 14 days after you're infected, the measles virus incubates. You have no signs or symptoms of measles during this time.

Nonspecific signs and symptoms
Measles typically begins with a mild to moderate fever, often accompanied by a persistent cough, runny nose, inflamed eyes (conjunctivitis) and sore throat. This relatively mild illness may last two or three days.

Acute illness and rash
The rash consists of small red spots, some of which are slightly raised. Spots and bumps in tight clusters give the skin a splotchy red appearance. The face breaks out first, particularly behind the ears and along the hairline.

Over the next few days, the rash spreads down the arms and trunk, then over the thighs, lower legs and feet. At the same time, fever rises sharply, often as high as 104 to 105.8 F (40 to 41 C). The measles rash gradually recedes, fading first from the face and last from the thighs and feet.

Communicable period. A person with measles can spread the virus to others for about eight days, starting four days before the rash appears and ending when the rash has been present for four days.

The cause of measles is a virus that replicates in the nose and throat of an infected child or adult.
When someone with measles coughs, sneezes or talks, infected droplets spray into the air, where other people can inhale them. The infected droplets may also land on a surface, where they remain active and contagious for several hours.
You can contract the virus by putting your fingers in your mouth or nose or rubbing your eyes after touching the infected surface.

Remedies for Measles
1. Neem Leaves
Neem, also known as Indian lilac, has antibacterial and anti-allergenic properties, and hence it can be very helpful in relieving itching that often occurs with the rash.
Grind a handful of fresh neem leaves into a paste. Apply the paste on the affected skin area. Let it dry on its own and then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Do this once daily for two weeks.
Alternatively, you can soak a handful of neem leaves in water and put the water under the sun for several hours. Finally wash your skin with this water. This will have a soothing effect on your skin. Do this once daily for two weeks.

2. Olive Leaf
Olive leaf is another most effective natural treatment against measles. Olive leaf has antimicrobial and antiviral properties that help kill the virus that causes measles. Plus, it is a natural antibiotic with antioxidant effects, which help in the healing process.
Grind a few olive leaves into a thick paste.
Apply the paste on the affected skin area. Leave it on for half an hour.
Rinse the area with lukewarm water and then pat dry thoroughly.
Follow this remedy once or twice a day for two weeks.

3. Bitter Gourd
Bitter gourd or bitter melon has strong antioxidant properties that help combat various symptoms of measles. Plus, it has vitamin C, zinc, iron, potassium and dietary fiber, which are required to boost immunity and speed up the healing process.
Extract the juice from one fresh bitter gourd.
Mix one tablespoon of bitter gourd juice with one teaspoon of honey and one-half teaspoon of turmeric powder.
Take this mixture twice a day for two to three weeks.

4. Barley
When it comes to skin irritation and itching, barley is extremely beneficial as it is packed with vitamin C, antioxidants and minerals. Plus, barley is a rich source of zinc that speeds up the healing process.
Mix one cup of barley in three cups of water.
Bring the mixture to a boil, then simmer it on low heat until the water is reduced to half.
Let the mixture cool and then strain it.
Add salt and sugar for taste.
Drink two to three glasses of this daily for about a month.

5. Turmeric
Turmeric is another beneficial ingredient for treating measles. It has antiseptic as well as antioxidant properties, and hence it is very effective in reducing the symptoms of measles.
Add one tablespoon each of turmeric powder and honey to a glass of lukewarm milk. Drink it twice daily for a month.
Grind equal amounts of tamarind seeds and turmeric root. Have this mixture, in a dose of 350 to 400 grams (about two and one-half cups), three times a day for two to three weeks
Mix one-half teaspoon of turmeric and a few drops each of honey and bitter gourd juice. Consume the mixture at least once a day for about a month.

6. Coconut Water
Coconut water has several nutrients that help cleanse the body of toxic elements. Also, it is rich in antioxidants that help promote a speedy recovery from measles. When suffering from measles, drink plenty of coconut water daily until you recover completely. This will keep the body hydrated and also save you from developing fatigue due to loss of energy.

7. Licorice
Licorice root is known for its antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial properties. Hence, it is very effective in treating measles.
Mix one-half tablespoon each of licorice powder and honey in a glass of lukewarm water. Drink this once daily to reduce coughing and soothe a sore throat. Continue until you completely recover.
You can also have one or two licorice candies daily.

8. Indian Gooseberry
Indian gooseberry, also known as amla, is an excellent source of vitamin C that enhances the immune system. Plus, it’s high in antioxidants and hence very effective in the treatment of measles.
Mix one teaspoon of amla juice in one-half cup of water. Drink it twice daily for one month. This will help alleviate the itching and burning sensation during measles.
Boil one cup of dry amla in four cups of water for 10 minutes. When cool, use this water to wash your body. Do this twice daily to relieve burning and itching.

Being unvaccinated. If you haven't received the vaccine for measles, you're much more likely to develop the disease.
Traveling internationally. If you travel to developing countries, where measles is more common, you're at higher risk of catching the disease.

Having a vitamin A deficiency. If you don't have enough vitamin A in your diet, you're more likely to contract measles and to have more-severe symptoms.


Home Remedies For Endometriosis

Endometriosis is an often painful disorder in which tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus the endometrium grows outside your uterus (endometrial implant). Endometriosis most commonly involves your ovaries, bowel or the tissue lining your pelvis. Rarely, endometrial tissue may spread beyond your pelvic region.

In endometriosis, displaced endometrial tissue continues to act as it normally would it thickens, breaks down and bleeds with each menstrual cycle. Because this displaced tissue has no way to exit your body, it becomes trapped. When endometriosis involves the ovaries, cysts called endometriomas may form. Surrounding tissue can become irritated, eventually developing scar tissue and adhesions abnormal tissue that binds organs together.

The primary symptom of endometriosis is pelvic pain, often associated with your menstrual period. Although many women experience cramping during their menstrual period, women with endometriosis typically describe menstrual pain that's far worse than usual. They also tend to report that the pain has increased over time.

Signs and symptoms
Painful periods (dysmenorrhea). Pelvic pain and cramping may begin before and extend several days into your period and may include lower back and abdominal pain.
Pain with intercourse. Pain during or after sex is common with endometriosis.
Pain with bowel movements or urination. You're most likely to experience these symptoms during your period.
Excessive bleeding. You may experience occasional heavy periods (menorrhagia) or bleeding between periods (menometrorrhagia).

Infertility. Endometriosis is first diagnosed in some women who are seeking treatment for infertility.
Other symptoms. You may also experience fatigue, diarrhea, constipation, bloating or nausea, especially during menstrual periods.

The severity of your pain isn't necessarily a reliable indicator of the extent of the condition. Some women with mild endometriosis have extensive pain, while others with advanced endometriosis may have little pain or even no pain at all.

Endometriosis is sometimes mistaken for other conditions that can cause pelvic pain, such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) or ovarian cysts. It may be confused with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a condition that causes bouts of diarrhea, constipation and abdominal cramping. IBS can accompany endometriosis, which can complicate the diagnosis.

Although the exact cause of endometriosis is not certain, several possible explanations include:
Retrograde menstruation. This is the most likely explanation for endometriosis. In retrograde menstruation, menstrual blood containing endometrial cells flows back through the fallopian tubes and into the pelvic cavity instead of out of the body. These displaced endometrial cells stick to the pelvic walls and surfaces of pelvic organs, where they grow and continue to thicken and bleed over the course of each menstrual cycle.

Embryonic cell growth. The cells lining the abdominal and pelvic cavities come from embryonic cells. When one or more small areas of the abdominal lining turn into endometrial tissue, endometriosis can develop.

Surgical scar implantation. After a surgery, such as a hysterectomy or C-section, endometrial cells may attach to a surgical incision.
Endometrial cells transport. The blood vessels or tissue fluid (lymphatic) system may transport endometrial cells to other parts of the body.

Immune system disorder. It's possible that a problem with the immune system may make the body unable to recognize and destroy endometrial tissue that's growing outside the uterus.

Endometriosis can cause pain sometimes severe especially during your period. Fertility problems also may develop. Fortunately, effective treatments are available.

Remedies for Endometriosis
1. Castor Oil
An age-old effective remedy for endometriosis is castor oil. Castor oil helps the body get rid of excess tissues and toxins. It should be used at the beginning of the menstrual cycle, when cramping is first noticed. This will help reduce the severity of symptoms throughout the cycle.
Mix eight drops of lavender essential oil and one-fourth cup of castor oil.
Soak a washcloth in this mixture, fold it and heat it in the microwave until it is comfortably warm. Place the warm cloth directly on your lower stomach.
Put a piece of plastic on top of the cloth and place a hot water bottle on top of that.
Use the pack once a day for 30 to 60 minutes.
Rinse off the oil with lukewarm water after each application.
Note: Do not use this remedy during menstrual flow.

2. Sitz Bath
A contrast hot and cold sitz bath is often recommended by naturopathy practitioners for reducing symptoms of endometriosis. The hot bath will help relax the pelvic muscles, in turn reducing cramping and pain. The cold bath will help reduce inflammation and alleviate pain.
Fill two large bathtubs, one with warm water and another with cold water.
Add 10 drops of rosemary essential oil or lavender essential oil to each bath and stir well.
Sit in the tub with hot water up to your waist for three to five minutes.
Then sit in the tub of cold water up to your waist for one minute.
Repeat for two to five rounds.
Do this three to four times a week.
Note: Avoid this remedy during menstruation.

3. Pelvic Massage
Massaging the pelvic area and lower abdomen with an essential oil like lavender or sandalwood will help a lot to relax and soothe minor pain associated with endometriosis.
Lie on the bed and stretch out your body.
Rub some essential oil on your stomach.
Gently massage in a rotating pattern for five to 10 minutes.
Do this once daily.
Note: Do not do this massage during your menstrual cycle.

4. Flaxseed
Flaxseeds are also very beneficial in the treatment of endometriosis. The antioxidant and omega-3 fatty acids in flaxseeds help slow the growth of abnormal endometrial tissue. Plus, flaxseeds help the body eliminate harmful toxins.
Soak three to four tablespoons of flaxseeds in one cup of water overnight. Strain and drink the water the next morning. Follow this remedy daily until your symptoms subside.
You can also add ground flaxseeds to yogurt, smoothies, soups and salads.

5. Turmeric
This amazing spice has a natural component known as curcumin that has strong anti-inflammatory benefits and hence can be used to treat endometriosis. It has also been shown to have anti-endometriotic property.
Bring two cups of water to a boil and add one teaspoon each of turmeric powder and ginger powder and one tablespoon each of honey and lemon juice. Drink this solution once daily until you get rid of the problem.
You can also take turmeric capsules (300 mg) three times a day.
Note: Avoid turmeric remedies if you are taking blood-thinning medications.

6. Wild Asparagus
Wild asparagus or shatavari in Ayurveda, which is rich in folic acid, can help treat anemia as well as endometriosis caused by a deficiency of folic acid. Plus, it has vitamin E that helps alleviate pain, particularly cramps.
Mix one teaspoon of wild asparagus powder in a glass of warm milk.
Drink it two times daily until you feel better.

7. Ginger
Ginger slices
Ginger is a strong anti-inflammatory herb that reduces inflammation and relieves menstrual cramps. It also relieves the nausea that can occur with endometriosis. Plus, it plays a major role in clearing the liver of excess toxins.
Boil one tablespoon of grated ginger root in two cups of water for 10 minutes. Strain, add honey and drink two or three cups of this herbal tea daily.
You can even chew fresh ginger pieces several times a day to recover quickly.

8. Chamomile
Chamomile tea
Chamomile has anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce inflammation as well as swelling often associated with endometriosis. It also acts as a natural diuretic to help flush out the bladder.

Several factors place you at greater risk of developing endometriosis, such as:
 Never giving birth
One or more relatives (mother, aunt or sister) with endometriosis
Any medical condition that prevents the normal passage of menstrual flow out of the body
History of pelvic infection
Uterine abnormalities

Endometriosis usually develops several years after the onset of menstruation (menarche). Signs and symptoms of endometriosis end temporarily with pregnancy and end permanently with menopause, unless you're taking estrogen.
