Recently we were asked a question on Instagram about whether CBD can help adenomyosis. In this blog, we are going to share how CBD may help with the pesky (to say the least) symptoms of adenomyosis.
What is adenomyosis?
Adenomyosis is a condition where the endometrium (this is the word for womb tissue lining) also grows on the muscle wall of the uterus. It can cause pressure in the lower abdomen, bloating, heavy and long periods, pain during sex and period cramps.
The main treatment for the condition is hormone therapy or a hysterectomy. However, before you head down those routes, you may consider natural remedies to easy the symptoms of adenomyosis.
If you are reading this and facing a hysterectomy or any surgery, check out our posts on recovering from laparotomy surgery diary.
Natural treatments may include looking to avoid foods that put pressure on the pelvic area, such as cows milk, alcohol, wheat and gluten.
You may also think about how CBD for adenomyosis may work.
Can CBD help adenomyosis?
CBD has been researched as a pain reliever. While studies are ongoing, it is thought to work by activating or curbing compounds in your bodies endocannabinoid system.
CBD may stop the body from absorbing anandamide which is a compound associated with regulating pain. When levels of anandamide are increased in the bloodstream it may help to reduce your pain.
While CBD may not help to lighten a heavy period, it does show promise in helping with the discomfort of the cramping from adenomyosis.
We have had some brilliant reviews of how CBD has helped our customers with their period troubles, including chronic pain from endo. CBD isn’t known to have any negative side effects and will not get you ‘high’ as it contains zero THC. (You also won’t be raiding the cupboards because of the munchies…)
How do I take CBD for adenomyosis?
We suggest that you take CBD every day, not just during your period or when you feel pain, to get the most benefits. Adding the cannabinoid to your daily supplement regime will allow it to build up in your body and take effect.
Pop it next to your make up or toothbrush as a daily reminder to take it.
It’s realy easy to take Our Remedy CBD. You just use a dropper and squeeze the oil under your tongue. Hold it there for a minute before swallowing to allow it to get into your bloodstream.
Tastes pretty good too.
We hope CBD for adenomyosis works for you. If it does, let us know on Instagram @itsourremedy or drop us a review – we’d love to hear from you!
