Aid the Treatment of Endometriosis, Adenomyosis, and Uterine Fibroids Through Yoga Asanas!



Endometriosis, Adenomyosis, and Uterine Fibroids are all medical conditions that have an adverse impact on the uterus of a female in her childbearing years. While Endometriosis is characterised by the migration of endometrial cells from the uterine lining to other regions of the pelvis, Adenomyosis causes the endometrial tissue to grow into the uterine wall. Uterine Fibroids on the other hand are non-cancerous growths in the uterus. All of these conditions may result in heavy menstrual bleeding, severe cramping, pain and discomfort in the pelvic region amongst other pertinent issues.





Unfortunately, these conditions hamper the day-to-day functioning of life, and can even create an extreme level of physical and mental strain. While there are little to no sure-fire remedies for these problems, Yoga has been able to offer some much-needed relief. After all, if the excruciating pain and menstrual cramps can be reduced even to some extent by practicing a set of asanas, then that’s a bet very woman suffering from these disconcerting illnesses would like to make.


If you too are seeking some respite from these issues, you may try this impeccable set of Yoga Asanas. For what it’s worth, this set of Asanas will not only help ease your physical strain, but also help relieve the stress and anxiety that comes with these Feminine Problems.


It goes without saying, before practicing with these Yoga Postures, do consult a certified Yoga Instructor or your Doctor.
