The lining inside the uterus is made up of cells called endometrial cells. These cells are created by the hormone estrogen and provide the necessary environment for a fertilized egg to be implanted and initially nourished to become an embryo. Endometriosis is a condition where there is too much estrogen in the body, resulting in endometrial cells becoming congested in the uterus and being displaced anywhere outside of the uterine cavity.
When progesterone is released during the menstrual cycle it stimulates the endometrial cells to thicken, which swells the endometrium tissue thus preparing the uterus for implantation of a fertilized egg. If the egg is not fertilized, then the lining is shed and bleeds out of the body. For the endometrial cells that are not located in the uterus, the progesterone still stimulates them, causing them to bleed. When the body is unable to dispose of these displaced endometrial cells and their blood, it leads to pain, inflammation and the development of scar tissue.
So how can BodyTalk help the body heal any stage of endometriosis? Well the order of the healing process, as well as the method used in BodyTalk, will depend on the individual case. Areas typically addressed are – balancing the hormones, getting rid of excess estrogen, and boosting the immune system. Part of balancing the hormones is when BodyTalk reminds the BodyMind complex what the correct level of estrogen needs to be, so that just the right amount of endometrial cells are produced to provide a healthy lining inside the uterus. To rid the body of excess estrogen, BodyTalk will typically address any imbalances within the liver and intestines. An overwhelmed and undernourished liver will have difficulty with breaking down the excess estrogen. Once broken down, excess hormones are delivered to the intestines to be excreted from the body. An unhealthy digestive tract that has been exposed to many antibiotics (either directly or from animal products) may contain certain enzymes that actually recycle some of the toxins (hormone components) instead of excreting them out of the body.
So what about boosting the immune system? The immune system will take on the job of eliminating the extra endometrial cells that are implanted anywhere outside of the uterus. Through BodyTalk the areas in the immune system that need boosting are identified. One example may include stimulating a sluggish lymphatic system to help remove the endometrial cells out of the area, into the blood stream and off to the liver for further cell breakdown and excretion through the intestines. Or perhaps it has to do with the actual breakdown of the cells at their location before they are removed through the lymphatic system. Whatever “boost” of the amazing immune system is required, BodyTalk can help in identifying it, then bringing it back to balance.
Each BodyTalk session is unique to the individual as it works in bringing you back to balance within all levels of the BodyMind Complex– physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. The number of sessions required will depend on the individual situation and can be determined after the first session. BodyTalk is a completely safe, non-invasive and simple healing modality that can help in healing any stage of endometriosis.
