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.
Lactuca virosas, also known as wild lettuce, bitter lettuce, and opium Lettuce has been used as a sedative and a pain killer medicine in traditional medicine in treating premenstrual syndrome and other chronic pains.
1. Nervous system(547)
Lactuca virosa contains lactucopicrin which helps to calm the overactive brain cells that cause nervous tension for women with endometriosis during menstrual cycle such as insomnia, tiredness, irritation, and depression(547). It also helps the muscle to relax, including the uterine muscles resulting in reducing the symptoms of menstrual cramps(54).
2. Immune system
The antioxidant properties in lactuca virosas helps to strengthen the white blood cells in the bloodstream in fighting against the invasion of bacteria, virus, and inflammation caused by endometrial implants and adhesion(548).
3. Circulatory system
Lactuca virosas also contains high levels of flavones which helps to protect the capillary walls from broken off and enhances the circulation of blood in the body including blood flow to the abdomen leading to lessening the period flow, and menstrual cramps(547). It also contains coumarin, a substance with a bitter taste and has a property of thinning the blood which helps to increase the blood flow(549)(550) and transportation of oxygen and nutrients to the body's cells resulting in strengthening the function of the circulatory system.
Since lactuca virosa is mildly toxic herb. Overdoses may cause liver and kidney damage. If you liver diseases, please consult with your doctor before applying lactuca virosas.
