Endometriosis and Black Haw

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 culture in treating all kind of diseases. In this article, we will discuss how black haw helps to treat endometriosis.

I. Definition
Black haw is also known as black haw viburnum, or stag bush. It is a native to southeastern North America. The herb has been used in treating menstrual cramp and morning sickness for women with or without endometriosis.

II. How black haw effects women with endometriosis

1. Nervous system
It is said that scopoletin in the black haw helps in strengthening the nervous system by regulating the sorotonin hormone, thereby it reduces the tension of nervous system and symptoms of endometriosis such as mood swing, depression, and anxiety.

2. Immune system
Black haw contains scopoletin, The substance is said to help immune system in fighting against bacteria, virus invasion, and forming of free redials including endometrial implants and adhesion.

3. Calming uterus contraction
Black is said to have uterine sedative tonic containing salicin, the aspirin-like substance. It helps to relax the contraction of uterus during and after menstruation leading to reduce tension in the uterus and abdominal pain.

4. Uterus muscles
Deficiency of bile caused by bile duct blockage increases the risk of imbalance of prostaglandins hormones during menstrual cycle that leads to overactive uterine muscles resulting in menstrual pain in the abdominal region. Black haw is said to help remove the blockage, thereby increasing the liver in protein and fat synthesis which helps to balance the prostaglandin hormones.

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