Emotions that Block

The uterus is the key symbol of a woman's existence. Uterus prolapse means unwillingness to perform a woman's duties, to be feminine — resentment, stress, too much responsibility. Not allowing a woman to be a protected being.

Uterine prolapse from the point of view of Ayurveda

Uterine prolapse occurs when pelvic floor muscles and ligaments stretch and weaken and no longer provide enough support for the uterus. As a result, the uterus slips down into or protrudes out of the vagina.

Uterine prolapse can occur in women of any age. But it often affects postmenopausal women who've had one or more vaginal deliveries.

Causes of weakened pelvic muscles and tissues include:
  • Pregnancy
  • Difficult labor and delivery or trauma during childbirth
  • Delivery of a large baby
  • Excess weight
  • Lower estrogen level after menopause
  • Chronic constipation or straining with bowel movements
  • Chronic cough or bronchitis
  • Repeated heavy lifting

Signs and symptoms of uterine prolapse include: 
  • Sensation of heaviness or pulling in the pelvis
  • Tissue protruding from the vagina
  • Urinary problems, such as urine leakage (incontinence) or urine retention
  • Trouble having a bowel movement
  • Feeling as if you are sitting on a small ball or as something is falling out of the vagina
  • Sexual problems, such as a feeling of weakening of the tone of the tissues of the vagina

According to Ayurveda, uterine prolapse is the result of an aggravation of Vata dosha. Ayurvedic treatment of uterine prolapse focuses on reducing Vata. When treating, it is important to avoid foods that aggravate Vata.

How Ayurvedic doctors treat uterine prolapse

In uterine prolapse treatment, Ayurveda concentrates on retaining the organ at its place, and giving strength to the muscles and ligaments of the uterus.

Ayurvedic uterine prolapse treatment is safe and effective. A combination of specially prepared Ayurvedic herbal medications and therapies, such as Panchakarma, help to deal with uterine prolapse condition. Internal medicines like Dhanwantharam and Sukumaram are also useful.

Some Yogic practices can help greatly too, though some should be avoided. The most beneficial practices include Ashwani Mudra and Pranayama, as well as the Shoulder Stand. 

Depending on the condition, an Ayurvedic doctor prescribes treatment methods and medications, Yoga and Pranayama recommendations, and healthy lifestyle and diet adjustments.

Please do not start treatment yourself! It is essential to consult a professional before beginning any health-related processes. You can make an appointment with one of our doctors to get proper recommendations.
