Endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the womb starts to grow in other places, such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes.
It is a chronic and debilitating condition that causes painful or heavy periods. It may also lead to infertility, fatigue and bowel and bladder problems. On average it takes 7.5 years from onset of symptoms to get a diagnosis (Diagnosis Survey. Endometriosis UK. February 2011).
We recently heard from one of our customers who had noticed a significant difference to her quality of life once she started taking our Turmeric Capsules as they eased her endometriosis symptoms.
Our customer (who wishes to remain anonymous) said: “I have endometriosis (which has gone undiagnosed until this year) and as anyone will know who has this condition or knows someone with this condition, it’s a nightmare. Years of hormonal medication and ups and downs in excruciating pain was getting too much and not providing the answer, so I decided to go hormone free and find remedial options in food and lifestyle changes.
“I was recommended turmeric and after some research of the effect of turmeric on endometriosis, I gave it a go using The Golden Paste Company’s Turmeric Capsules (three a day). The change was almost immediate. Straight away the constant stomach bloat and tense muscles around my stomach died out and I felt ‘lighter’.
“It got around to the dreaded first ‘time of the month’ after taking the capsules for about two weeks and I was waiting on tenter hooks for the pain to take over my lower back/waist/ stomach as usual, hot water bottles and bubble bath ready to be put to action and I didn’t need them!
“Don’t get me wrong, I still get pain but I would like to say it is more ‘normal’ pain which allows me to continue with my life as usual compared to life before turmeric. I used to get horrendously uncomfortable days in the middle of my cycle as well as the week I bled and they don’t happen anymore. It comes hand in hand with other changes I made, I have always lived an active lifestyle but now I push myself a bit harder to do more strenuous exercise which helps too.
“However, I do attribute most of the change to turmeric as if I have a week off exercise I’m still much better than before.
“I’m very conscious to never run out of capsules, I wouldn’t like to go back to life without them and can only hope more women suffering find out about them!”
