Endometriosis is a chronic condition where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus (endometrium) grows outside the uterus. This tissue can be found on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, outer surface of the uterus, and other organs within the pelvis. During the menstrual cycle, this tissue responds to hormonal changes and may bleed, leading to inflammation, pain, and the formation of scar tissue.


The exact 'medical cause' of endometriosis is not fully understood. Several theories exist, including retrograde menstruation (when menstrual blood flows backward into the pelvis instead of out of the body), genetic factors, immune system dysfunction, hormonal imbalances, and environmental factors.

The metaphysical causes: Homeopaths believe that there are some metaphysical causes behind the suffering. In Homeopathy, it is believed that suppressed emotions can cause physical changes in our body, thus leading to various functional and structural changes. Emotional suppression is not something we choose to do, it just happens, it's an automatic response to a situation or trigger. We learned to suppress to keep us safe, accepted and attached in our childhood. That contained energy is what happens inside of our bodies when we suppress our emotional energy. 

Every physical reaction tells us something about the way we hold on to our feeling, hold on to our words, hold onto our emotions. Emotions bridge the gap between energy (thought) and physicality (body reaction). They are like a wave that builds and disperses. However, when we hold on to an emotion, when it remains stuck inside, eventually it creates problems in our physical body. Imagine the powerful energy of a wave crashing onto the shore. Imagine the heaviness of grief and sadness, like the weight of water behind a dam. All those unshed tears. That contained energy is what happens inside of our bodies when we suppress our emotional energy. That powerful energy is what we try to hold onto when we have learned to suppress an emotion. 

The body shows us what we have hidden in our subconscious. Our bodies show us where we are storing that energy through pain and illness and bring our attention to what is hidden there. The tissue itself reflects the hardening and tightening inside, the held in expression of femininity and massive control over outward expression of emotions. 

Creativity and passion, joy and freedom have often been suppressed in exchange for 'duty' and 'should s' and 'shouldn't s', judgmental attitudes and having to find an emotional resilience to all of these rules and responsibilities. Endometriosis is deeply rooted in our female lineage and family relationship dynamics. The hardships and challenges of the parent often being projected onto the child to 'be strong' because of the belief that life is difficult. In some women this holding onto emotion spills out in angry outbursts, in others there is so much control over avoiding conflict that the emotion and frustration is contained, leading to great physical pain and relationship difficulties.


The most common symptom of endometriosis is pelvic pain, which may range from mild to severe and may worsen during menstruation. Other symptoms may include painful periods (dysmenorrhea), pain during or after intercourse (dyspareunia), infertility, fatigue, digestive issues, and in some cases, bowel or bladder symptoms.

Impact on Fertility: Endometriosis is associated with infertility in some cases, although not all women with endometriosis experience fertility problems. The mechanisms by which endometriosis affects fertility are not fully understood but may include anatomical distortion, hormonal abnormalities, inflammation, and immune dysfunction. Fertility treatments such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) may be recommended for women with endometriosis who are having difficulty conceiving.


Endometriosis can be challenging to diagnose because its symptoms can mimic those of other conditions, and its severity does not always correlate with the extent of the disease. Diagnosis often involves a combination of medical history, pelvic examination, imaging tests (such as ultrasound or MRI), and minimally invasive procedures like laparoscopy, where a surgeon can visually inspect the pelvic organs and take tissue samples for biopsy.


Treatment for endometriosis aims to manage symptoms, reduce inflammation, and preserve fertility. In conventional medicine, treatment options may include pain medications (such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs), hormonal therapies (such as birth control pills, hormonal IUDs, or GnRH agonists), and surgery (such as laparoscopic excision of endometrial implants or hysterectomy with removal of the ovaries). 

But if we talk about the Homeopathic treatment, there are a lot of medicines which can resonate with the constitutional picture of the patient and along with some dietary changes and lifestyle management, the problem can be dealt with right from its root cause. Of course, the treatment is personalized depending upon the kind of stuck emotions of the person and wide range of other physical generals such as likes and dislikes, food habits, sleep patterns, etc.

Healing comes with creativity and expression. Bring awareness to those hard and self-harming thoughts and work on softening the inner talk. We cannot change the past or other people; we can only grow into who we are meant to be.

The process of healing is a gentle and gradual uncovering what we have buried within. Releasing the past, layer by layer and learning to flow with the present moment is easier said than done. But remember, Homeopathy helps a great deal in achieving this by triggering the release of stuck emotions.   

We have the power to heal.

We have the ability to release.

We have the power to change.
