4 Root Causes of Pelvic Pain
Have you ever wondered if there might be other ways to deal with endometriosis and pelvic pain than to just take the birth control pill?
Then keep reading.
Even though the causes and contributing factors are unique to each woman dealing with pelvic pain, there are common causes we can investigate with functional medicine. For example:
1️⃣ Hormone Imbalance
Some women with endometriosis have estrogen dominance, or a mismatch between the amount of estrogen and progesterone produced. How do we test? Hormone testing.
2️⃣ Gut Microbiome
Research has found unique changes in the gut microbiome associated with endometriosis. How do we test? Stool tests.
3️⃣ Immune Reactions
Higher concentrations of inflammatory molecules and immune cells are found in endometrial tissues, suggesting immune reactions may be at play. How do we test? Blood tests.
4️⃣ Chemicals & Toxins
Common everyday products like plastics and lotions often contain endocrine-disrupting chemicals that mess with your hormones and can contribute to endometriosis and pelvic pain. How do we test? An environmental toxin panel.
