Endometriosis is quite common in women of childbearing age, while its incidence has been increasing in recent years and presents a younger trend. The endometrial tissue of healthy women covers the surface of the uterine cavity. When the endometrium "escapes" to other parts of the uterus due to certain factors, it is called endometriosis. It can cause various pains, such as menstrual pain, chronic pelvic pain, dyspareunia, anal fall pain, low back pain, scar pain (including cesarean section scars or vaginal side incision scars), which seriously affect work and life.
TCM classifies endometriosis as "dysmenorrhea", "irregular menstruation", and "infertility". The leading cause of this disease is the reverse flow of menstrual blood, which flows outside the uterus, resulting in a loss of energy and blood, weak energy in the kidney, an inability to clear the reversed menstrual blood, and the formation of blood stasis.
Herbal medicine applies syndrome differentiation and respective treatment. It uses the method of "activating blood circulation and removing blood stasis, attacking and replenishing" to reduce postoperative recurrence, improve ovarian function, and help patients recover quickly. For menstrual abdominal pain caused by endometriosis, herbal medicine has a pronounced clinical effect in the treatment of "regulating qi and promoting blood circulation, removing blood stasis and relieving pain."
Therefore, herbal medicine enema combined with oral herbal medicine, acupuncture point application, and other comprehensive treatments has significant therapeutic effects, relieving pain, promoting fertility, and improving quality of life.
Below I will introduce a herbal medicine enema prescription and its operation method. Take 30 grams of Astragalus, 20 grams of Curcuma, 10 grams of Zhishanjia, 10 grams of chuanxiong rhizome, and 10 grams of turmeric.
These herbs should be decocted and concentrated to 200 mL, and the temperature was 39~41 ℃. Before the enema:
1. Instruct the patient to empty the stool, take a left lateral position, raise the buttocks 10cm with a pillow, or pour the medicine into the enema bag or bottle.
2. Hang the enema bag or bottle 1-2 meters away from the bed surface, connect the enema catheter, insert it into the anus 20 cm deep, and slowly drip the medicine into the rectum for about 30 minutes.
3. Pull out the catheter inserted into the anus and rest on your side.
4. Avoid menstrual periods, and once a day.
The feature of this therapy is that the herbal medicine decoction retention enema can avoid the bitter taste of oral herbal medicine and stimulate the gastric mucosa. The medicine liquid is directly absorbed through the rectal mucosa, avoiding the first-pass effect of the liver, increasing the blood drug concentration, and reducing the impact on the stomach and liver damage.
To ensure patients with endometriosis recover as soon as possible and give full play to the best effect of herbal medicine enema, it is recommended that patients use Fuyan Pill. Fuyan Pill results from 30 years of medical knowledge and clinical practice in Wuhan Dr. Lee's TCM Clinic. It is a mature formula that clears away heat and detoxifies and can effectively treat gynecological diseases such as endometriosis. It can have a unique therapeutic effect on endometriosis and cure patients well.
To relieve pain, patients can rest in bed during menstruation in daily life. In severe cases, oral or anal plugged anti-inflammatory pain relievers are required. Patients should also do daily self-management, including regular physical activity. Exercise not only boosts blood circulation but also releases pain-relieving endorphin. Low-intensity exercise, such as yoga, can also relieve pain by stretching the tissues and muscles of the pelvis.
