Endometriosis symptoms can be relieved by a variety of dietary and herbal remedies. However, it is important to consult your doctor before you take any type of supplement. This is particularly important for women who have heart, kidney, or liver problems.
Here is a list of common dietary (vitamins, minerals) supplements that are used for handling endometriosis.

B Vitamins – Biotin, cobalamin, and inositol; folic acid and inositol; niacin and PABA; pantothenic and pyridoxine and riboflavin. Each member of the B vitamins family helps to break down carbohydrates, fat, and protein. Folic acid is vital because it provides oxygen to tissues. Anemia can be caused by a lack of this B vitamin. Endometriosis can also be improved by B vitamins.
Vitamin C – Helps build and maintain collagen in the body. It also stimulates the immune system and encourages healing. Warning: While fruit is a great source of vitamin C it also contains bioflavonoids which can mimic estrogen effects and cause severe cramping.
Alternative medicine options for endometriosis include herbal remedies. Endometriosis sufferers can expect to feel less pain and have better pelvis circulation. Herbal therapy also helps to establish hormonal balance. Here are some herbs that can be used to treat endometriosis.
Evening Primrose Oil – These herbs are rich in essential fatty acids which increase the production of prostaglandin E1. This herbal remedy should not be used by women with seizures.
Cimicifuga Racemosae Rhizome – This herbal remedy can be used to treat many types of pain, such as dysmenorrhea.
Women with endometriosis can use herbs and dietary supplements. Another form of treatment that can prove beneficial is therapeutic massage.
