Our Featured Article
Endometriosis Treatment & TCM
an excerpt by Li Du, and New Life Journal

Endometriosis is a condition suffered by women of various backgrounds, race and age. The word endometriosis is derived from "endometrium", or the lining inside of a woman's uterus. Endometriosis occurs when the lining somehow makes its way outside of the uterus. Generally, it is found in the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and ligaments supporting the uterus, although it can occur in a number of different locations. The lining is not shed during menstruation, as is the lining inside of the uterus. This condition may inflame surrounding tissues, causing symptoms ranging from abdominal pain to infertility.

Treatments for endometriosis are as varied as the disease itself. Some Western treatments of endometriosis involve hormonal therapy or even surgery. For many women, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offers an alternative to invasive or otherwise uncomfortable procedures. My own experiences suggest that acupuncture and Chinese herbs are more effective and much less unpleasant and dangerous than hormonal treatments or surgery to treat endometriosis. Some women may require surgical approaches for treatment of endometriosis. However, it makes sense to try to obtain relief with Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment.

An Alternative Viewpoint
Living With Pain
by Cynthia Perkins, M.Ed.

Pain is an inevitable part of life. In living with a chronic illness or chronic pain, pain is no stranger to us and we are likely to endure more than the average person may endure. Much of the pain that we experience canít be eliminated or treated, so we have no choice but to learn to live with it. In my struggle to learn how to do this and to still find meaning and purpose in life I have learned many things and developed a new relationship with my pain.

As a mental health professional and a person who lives with chemical sensitivity, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, I deal with a great deal of pain daily. In my own exploration of pain, and in my professional experience, I have found there are several intertwined levels of pain: the physical level, the emotional/psychological and the spiritual level. Severe physical pain is likely to cause emotional distress as one struggles to cope with feelings of loss, grief and anger associated with diminished abilities or changes in lifestyle or identity.
