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.
Cramp bark is also known as water elder or European cranberry bush, it grows to 4-5 m tall. The fruit is edible in small quantities, with a very acidic taste. It is said to have the best female medicine compared to other herbs.
1. Uterine relaxation(467)
Cramp bark is said to help increase the blood flow to the abdominal region, thereby it helps to relax the uterus resulting in lessening menstrual pain(464)(461).
2. Menstrual cramps(461)
It is said that cramp bark is a reproductive muscle tonic medicine that helps to reduce overactive uterine muscles(461)(467) caused by over-production of certain hormones in the prostaglandins family.
3. Immune system(462)
The herb contains high amount of antioxidants of which helps the immune system fighting against forming of free radicals and irregular cell growth(468), including the cells of endometriosis adhesion and reactive oxygen species such as superoxide anion, hydroxyl radical and nitric oxide(463).
4. Nervous tension(464)
Since it is containing high amount of flavonoids(463), it helps to reduce centralnervous system disorders that causes symptoms of endometriosis such as mood swing, irritation, anxiety, and depression(465).
5. Bring on period
Cramp bark has been used to bring on period either caused by hormone imbalance or blood stagnation probably through enhancing the liver function(466)(467) in blood regulation, thus increasing the blood flow to the abdominal region.
