During the last stage of the menstrual cycle, normally a layer of endometriosis lining on the inside of the uterus is expelled, known as menstruation blood, instead some of the endometriosis tissues grow somewhere in the body to cause endometriosis. Endometriosis also react to hormone signals of the monthly menstrual cycle, by building and breaking up tissues and eliminating them through menstrual period.
Peony are Chinese herbs that include white and red peony. While red peony is made by the whole peony root with its reddish thick outer bark, the white peony is made by the peeled root with the bark stripped off to reveal a powdery white to pink under-layer. It is said to help in strengthen the liver function(491)(492),in regulation of blood flow(493), and reducetion of menstrual cramps(494).
1. Reduce menstrual cramps
White peony reduces the period pain(494) through reduction the internal heat in the upper part of the body caused by Qi stagnation. By releasing the flow of the qi it also reduces the abdominal pain(491). Red peony helps to treat blood stagnation by increasing the blood flow to the abdomen(491).
2. Hormonal balancing
Since white peony helps to strengthen the liver qi(493)(494), it increases the secretion of bile into the digestive system that helps to inhibit the levels of bad estrogen(497) in the body which causes menstrual cramps and cell abnormality, such as cancer(498), endometrial implants, and adhesion(499)(500)(501).
3. Relaxing uterine muscle
With a strong liver, it helps to balance the prostaglandins hormones(496) by balancing the fatty acids in our body. Without the over-production of certain hormones in the prostaglandins family, there are no overactive uterine muscles(496) and menstrual cramps(494).
4. Immune system(490)(493)
Peony contains paeonin and paeoniflorin which help to strengthen the immune system in fighting against inflammation(495) that causes the endometrial implants and adhesion.
5. Nervous system(502)
By increasing the liver function(492) by stabilize the yin qi in the liver it helps the liver in protein and fat metabolism resulting in increasing the function of the nervous system thus reducing symptoms of dizziness, fatigue, irritation, memory loss, etc.(502)(503) in patient with or without endometriosis.
