Endometriosis…HCG, Melatonin and Gluten-Free Diet Help!

Endometriosis is the growth of the lining of the uterus (endometrium) outside the uterus particularly to tissue such as the ovariesand pelvis. It is the most common cause of secondary painful dysmenorrhea (menstrual pain) or pelvic pain related to the menstrual cycle and pain during intercourse. This condition occurs in 6-10% of the female population in the United States and it occurs 4 to 5 times more in infertile women. Treatment is usually some type of hormonal approach.

In an article entitled “The Hidden HCG breakthrough — totally eliminate or control excruciating endometriosis!” the role of HCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin) at 1500-5000 Units 1 to 2 x per week by injection; melatonin at 10 mg per day; and a gluten-free diet all significantly reduced endometrial pain. I would add to this regimen my Basic Elimination Diet and vitamin D at 5000 IU and get tested to be in the upper range of normal for vitamin D and add 300-600 mg of magnesium at least.
