Endometriosis and Matricaria Recutita (Chamomile)

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 matricaria recutita (Chamomile) helps to treat endometriosis.

I. Definition
Chamomile is also known as camomile. It is an annual plant that belongs to the sunflower family. Generally, it usually grows near populated areas all over Europe and Asia. It has been used in traditional medication in treating insomnia and irritable bowel syndrome.

II. How matricaria recutita (chamomile) effects women with endometriosis
1. Essential oils
The essential oil made from matricaria recutita is said to have calming effects for abdominal period pain. By placing some drops of chamomile essential oils on the skin of the abdomen, and gently massage with your palm until all oils are absorbed will help to reduce the pain in that area.

2. Sedative
Since matricaria recutita is mildly sedative, it helps to relax the tension of reproductive organs during menstrual cycle, thereby reducing the menstrual pain caused by overactive uterine muscles.

3. Nervous system
Besides helping to reduce period pain, it also calms the tension of the nervous system which causes insomnia due to overactive brain cells at night and symptoms of endometriosis, such as irritation, fatigue, and anxiety.

4. Circulation system
matricaria recutita contains coumarin which not only helps to make our blood thinner which improve the circulation of blood in the transportation of oxygen and nutrients to the body cell, but it also increases blood flow to the abdominal regions resulting in reducing the symptoms of endometriosis during menstrual cycle. Please consult with your doctor before taking matricaria recutita if you are taking any blood thinner medication.

5. Calcium
matricaria recutita contains high levels of calcium which helps to reduce symptoms of endometriosis, such as menstrual cramps before menstruation caused by low levels of calcium that are needed for muscle tone. Maintaining the good levels of calcium it also contributes to duplication of DNA and RNA in cell division and blood clotting which are essential for reducing blood flow during menstruation and abnormal cell growth.
