Treat Endometriosis Naturally

Endometriosis is a problem women have in which the tissue lining their uterus also grows on the outside of the uterus. It doesn’t always cause problems and usually isn’t dangerous, though it can be painful and cause problems with fertility. No one is quite sure what causes endometriosis, but they do know that estrogen makes the problem worse. And while women may suffer from endometriosis during their child-bearing years because of this, most women will cease to have symptoms after menopause.
