Adenomyosis – Update – 2

Well, it’s been about 2 days and I wanted to add an update on the bladderwrack and adenomyosis.  I have noticed that things are feeling a little bit better – but it’s seeming a slow process on the pain end of things.  I mentioned that I wanted to try some other herbs combined with the bladderwrack for more immediate relief while it does what it’s supposed to theoretically do.  I tried first adding Maca and didn’t notice much of anything with that except that things seemed a little more relaxed.  Then I tried adding Damiana, and the same thing only more so.  I think that both of those herbs will be helpful in the long run, but I was looking for something a little more powerful, to say the least.

Today I woke up, feeling a little sore and as the morning progressed I was overcome with the “labor-like” pains – consuming my entire body and I was reaching for the pain meds.   Instead – I made a quick pot of tea and this time, instead of the Maca or Damiana, added Dong Quai (less than a teaspoon) and a little Ginger Root – with the Bladderwrack and my base mix from the previous post.  Within 20 minutes or less the pain eased back and just about went away – the only pain I still had were the two little spots on each side of my uterus.  I drank the pot of tea throughout the day and am feeling much more positive about things – like maybe, just maybe this will work…  I hope.  🙂

I was absolutely amazed at how quickly it worked for the pain, and I’m going to try that for a few days and will post another update.  This is the best I’ve been feeling for 2 weeks.  I also started doing a daily castor oil pack – which consists of a piece of flannel soaked in castor oil, lay that on your abdomen, add a layer of plastic wrap, then a heating pad for a half an hour – or as long as you wish.  I have just started and am going to do it for a week straight.  Castor Oil has been used in packs like this for several ailments involving anything in the abdomen, especially women’s problems.

I am really set on nailing this problem down with alternative treatments – maybe just because I’m stubborn. 🙂

I hope that anyone who is interested in finding alternatives to a hysterectomy for adenomyosis can find some help in my posts – this is an absolutely miserable, debilitating condition.  I am truly hoping that my experiences, trial and error can be helpful to you.

Dong Quai literally means “state of return” and has been used in Chinese  medicine for over 2000 years.  It said to reduce menstrual pain and the effects of menopause, and the primary use has been for a uterine tonic.

I am also considering taking natural progesterone – I found some excellent information here: Antidote for Adenomyosis and there’s also a link there to buy natural progesterone – Progestelle, which you can also get from Amazon.

It’s also said that getting pregnant is a great cure, at least temporarily for adenomyosis – so this should be good news for anyone who would still like to have a baby.  I have found some things stating that it will be a high-risk pregnancy and others stating that it will not, it should be relieving because of the increase in progesterone and adenomyosis is estrogen-dependent.
