JOURNAL | CAN TURMERIC HELP WITH PERIOD PAIN AND ENDOMETRIOSIS?
As females we can work in harmony with the body to help alleviate pain associated with that time of the month.
It is proven that turmeric is proven to help ease pain, naturally, with little to no side effects. Whilst it may seem quick and easy to use pharmaceuticals to treat aches and pains, many of these commercially available drugs can have side effects when used long term.
Traditionally used for thousands of years in Chinese and Ayurveda medicine, turmeric has been shown to be an effective natural pain reliever in particular with inflamed pain like what may happen during your cycle to the reproductive system. Curcumin, the main active component of turmeric, reduces inflammation and stimulates the body’s natural painkillers, providing relief menstrual cramps and pains associated with the menstruating.
Sadly, almost 1 in 10 women in Australia suffer from a conditional called endometriosis (a condition resulting from the appearance of endometrial tissue outside the uterus and causing pelvic pain, especially associated with menstruation) and whilst sometimes the symptoms are silent and untreated, the long term effects and complications can be devastating and painful. There are several ways to help treat and ease the condition and we are know learning that turmeric may be a great, natural therapy. A recent scientific review concluded that the active ingredient curcumin, found in a high quality turmeric, may have positive benefits on the prevention and treatment of endometriosis. Whilst the studies to date are predominately in vitro and animal based, and definitely more clinical trials need to be conducted, there is still sufficient evidence to suggest that the treatment of endometriosis with turmeric, helps reduces inflammation through the suppression of inflammatory cytokine expression, stops the invasion, attachment, and angiogenesis of endometrial lesions and works to lesson the inhibition of cell proliferation. Plus as mentioned above, the molecules within turmeric can also work to bring about pain relief for those suffering.
