The word “cure” can often provide misinformation and a false sense to people about its meaning. When I use the word “cure” what comes to mind? Do you think it will get rid of Endometriosis for good, having it never return? Is this considered cured?
What about the pain? Would you consider it gone if there was no more pain?
Do you believe we can simply “cut it out” and it will somehow be gone forever? This is the danger with Western Medicine. It describes disease as something that is like an infestation in the body. It is a foreign matter, that shouldn’t be there, that either needs to be removed, cut out or eradicated. It is described as some, ugly alien that has invaded the body. These invaders are in the wrong place, so we have to cut them out, stomp them out with drugs and hormone treatments and they will then just shrivel up and go away!
The reality is, disease within the body is actually caused from the cells within the body. They are not a foreign invasion of cells, the cells already exist, they are simply in overdrive or in the wrong place (as is the case for Endometriosis). The body’s ability to cope with disease is dependent on how strong its state of balance is.
Here is an explanation by a brilliant blog for Traditional Chinese Medicine:

To re-iterate: A cure is a process whereby we restore the body’s natural balance. We achieve this through a variety of elements. These include reducing stress in our lives, eating a balanced diet, providing the body with sufficient rest time and aiding the immune system and healing process.
The body wants this natural balance to occur.
Depending on what we have done to the body in the past, is often an indication of how long our journey is to finding that “cured” state. For some of us, this can take years due to using drugs and hormonal treatments within the body, which actually create further imbalance within the body.
We were all created with the same organs and the same ability to lead a pain free life. Why is it then that some of us have a harder time with disease and conditions than others? It all comes down to balance. Some of us are simply better at adhering to balance and recognize when our bodies need time out and rest.
So, the reality is that Endometriosis is simply an expression of the body of an imbalance within us.
Don’t think that at any stage, we can simply go back to eating junk food, not exercising and leading a highly stressful life and that we will be okay. We need to maintain balance throughout our lives, as disease and conditions only occur within a state of imbalance.
You may notice other imbalances in those around you. They are all expressions by the body that there is a problem. Our bodies just express them in different ways. Some of us will get heart conditions, lung conditions or arthritis. It is all an expression of imbalance. The thing is, we need to fix the imbalance early to prevent it from developing into more severe conditions.
Within the Chinese Mythology, there is a sphere by which disease travels. When we ignore our body’s warnings of pain and imbalance, it will simply move to the next organ and cause further damage within the body. You may notice them within your family. My family has a history of bowel cancer, Crohn’s disease, acne and kidney stones.
I don’t want to develop all of these nasties so I am making sure I treat my body the best way possible to avoid these complications later on. Overall health doesn’t just mean focusing on Endometriosis but the whole body!
