Endometriosis – What You Need To Know

Endometriosis - what you need to know

Endometriosis is a common yet poorly understood disease that can affect women of any age. In fact, it’s estimated that currently 11% of women between the ages of 15 and 44 – or 6.5 million people – in the United States suffer from endometriosis.

Royal and Pure values the well-being of our customers. That’s why we provide products that support and enhance their well-being.

In this blog, we’ll share everything you need to know about the endometriosis condition and recommend some steps you can take to relieve symptoms of endometriosis.

You should never delay seeking medical advice, disregard medical advice or discontinue medical treatment because of information on our website.

What is endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a condition where tissue, similar to womb lining, begins to grow in other areas of your body, like the ovaries and fallopian tubes. Your uterus, or womb, is lined with a tissue called the endometrium. This tissue is what helps keep a baby healthy during pregnancy – it’s vital for implantation, growth, and the growth of the placenta.

If you’re not pregnant, that lining simply sheds away once a month in the form of a period.

But for women with endometriosis, a tissue similar to the endometrium grows in other parts of their body, like:

  • The ovaries
  • Fallopian tubes
  • Behind the uterus
  • Behind the bowel or bladder.

And just like the tissue inside their uterus, this tissue also sheds once a month. This can cause many complications – such as fertility issues, depression, and chronic pain.

What are the symptoms?

Pain

The most common and unpleasant symptom of endometriosis is pain. Women who suffer from endometriosis experience pain at the start of and during their period – otherwise known as dysmenorrhoea. Other women experience pain during or after sex (dyspareunia).

Some women may have trouble going to the toilet due to the discomfort they feel when they pass urine or open their bowels.

Bleeding

Another common symptom of endometriosis is heavy or irregular menstrual bleeding. You may also experience bleeding for an excessive amount of time or before a period is due.  

Bloating

Women who suffer from endometriosis are more prone to intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and fibroids. This results in severe and painful bloating

How can you treat endometriosis?

Surgery

Your doctor may recommend that you have an operation to remove the endometriosis – but unfortunately,  it’s not a permanent fix. You may need to have this procedure multiple times over the course of your lifetime.

Drink less alcohol

Drinking lots of alcohol may make your endometriosis symptoms worse. That’s because alcohol raises your estrogen levels, which can increase the severity of your discomfort.

CBD oil

Endometriosis causes major inflammation – which is why so many women experience pain.

CBD oil may help reduce this pain and inflammation. By binding to CB2 receptors in your body, it reduces cytokine production. When CBD attaches to the CB2 receptors, it helps dial back your immune system’s response — like inflamed tissues. CBD is also known to have mild analgesic properties, which are important for reducing the pain that comes with endometriosis.

At Royal and Pure, we ensure that all our products are USA-made and 100% organic, vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free. We believe that to change your life from the inside out, you need the best ingredients going in. We also test our Colorado-grown hemp extracts with an accredited, independent lab. All the details are available and up to date here to provide transparency and trust. 

How to use CBD oil?

CBD oil is most effective when it’s taken sublingually – meaning ‘under the tongue.’ Simply place a few drops or a full dropper under the tongue and hold it there for 30 seconds before swallowing.

Don’t like the taste? Try using our CBD oil by simply slipping a few drops into your drink. This can help your body maintain homeostasis – the process all living things use to keep stable conditions to survive. If you have any questions about endometriosis, consult your doctor and seek immediate medical attention. Never delay seeking medical advice, disregard medical advice or discontinue medical treatment because of this information on our website.
