Endometriosis and Anemone Pulsatilla (Wind Flower or Easter Flower)

As we mentioned in previous articles, endometriosis growing somewhere else other than the endometrium also reacts to hormonal signals of the monthly menstrual cycle by building up tissue, breaking it, and eliminating it through the menstrual period. As we know, herbs play a very important role in some cultures in treating all kinds of diseases. In this article, we will discuss how anemone pulsatilla helps to treat endometriosis.

I. Definition
Anemone pulsatila is also known as wind flower or Easter flower. It is a wild plant that belongs to the family ranunculaceae which grows wild in Central and Northern Europe. It has been used in traditional medicine in treating disorders of the mucous membrane, of the respiratory, and of the digestive passages.

II. How anemone pulsatilla effects women with endometriosis
1. Antispsamodic
It is said that anemone pulsatilla can help to ease the muscle pain caused by overactive muscles as well as reducing the tension in the nervous system that causes symptoms of endometriosis such as irritation, sleeplessness, and anxiety.

2. Emmenagogue
Since it is an emmenagogue, it helps to release the blood stagnation in the abdominal region thus reducing the tension of the uterine muscles that cause menstrual cramps. It is one of the herbs that has been used in treating absence of period with some success.

3. Digestive system
Anemone pulsatila is said to have the ability to help the digestive system disorder caused by over-production of bad microorganisms in the intestines resulting in increasing the absorption of vital vitamins and minerals that are generally deficient in women with endometriosis during menstrual cycles.

4. Respiratory system
It is said that anemone pusatila helps to increase blood flow to the respiratory veins which helps to improve the oxygen absorption and strengthens the lung function.

5. Circulation system
Anemone pusatila also helps to increase the blood flow to the abdomen region during menstrual cycle, thus smoothing the muscles of uterus resulting in lessening the symptoms of menstrual cramps.

Since endometriosis is treatable and manageable by natural remedies and a self help course, if you have endometroisis, please look on the bright side.
