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 cultures in treating all kinds of diseases. In this article, we will discuss how wild yam helps to treat endometriosis.

Wild yam is a species of a twining tuberous vine that is found growing wild in North America.
It has been used in herbal medicine in treating menstrual cramps and to increase liver function.
II. How wild yam effects women with endometriosis.
1. Hormone balancing
Wild yam helps to increase liver function in protein and fat metabolism, which helps to stimulate the production of good estrogen through bile secretion, leading to lower levels of bad estrogen resulting in lowering the risk of cell abnormality such as endometrial implants and adhesion, and cancer.
2. Nervous system
By increasing the levels of good cholesterol in the blood stream, wild yam helps to inhibit the bad cholesterol, thereby increasing the transportation of oxygen and nutrients to the cell in the nervous system which decreases the symptoms of endometriosis, such as fatigue, tiredness, and mood swings.
3. Immune system
Since wild yam is a detoxifying herb, it helps to strength the immune system by getting rid of all harmful substances that are accumulated in our body including environmental toxins, one of the cause of endometrial formation.
4. Menstrual cramps
Since it helps to balance the levels of estrogen and progesterone, it reduces the risk of menstrual cramps caused by hormonal imbalance of above hormones.
5. Increase sexual desire
Wild yam contains saponins which is a steroid-like substance that can be converted to testosterone chemically that helps to build muscles and increases sexual desire which is necessary for some women with endometriosis with low sex drive during menstrual cycle.
Since endometriosis is treatable and manageable by natural remedies and a self help course, if you have endometroisis, please look on the bright side.
