How Acupuncture Saved TV Star From Painful Endometriosis And A Hysterectomy
Alicia Duvall, a former TV star and model says that a combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbs and a healthy diet saved her from the devastating effects of endometriosis.
The celebrity recently revealed her battle with endometriosis, stating that doctors claimed her only option was to undergo a hysterectomy. This is a serious surgical procedure that could have caused her early menopause.
According to Alicia Duvall, it was alternative medicine that saved her from the operation and quite possibly, saved her life in the process.
Along with the lifestyle changes she made, she noticed that within a few months she felt so much better. Ms Duvall claims she “doesn’t suffer at all now” thanks to following a healthy lifestyle plan.
Duvall struggled with endometriosis for years; this is a condition where the lining of the womb grows outside of the uterus. Along with experiencing pain and fatigue, endometriosis can also cause infertility and bowel and bladder problems. Duvall was also diagnosed with fibroids and an ovarian cyst.
It can take a long time to diagnose endometriosis as the symptoms are often mistaken for painful periods. In Duvall’s case it took 3 years, but it can take up to 7 or more.
Initially she was placed on birth control pills to manage the endometriosis symptoms but this and painkillers, failed to ease her pain. She was taking so many medicines but nothing was working.
After undergoing surgery to remove her fibroids, cyst and endometriosis tissue, she thought she was cured. But then the painful symptoms flared back up and it soon became clear after she woke up in a pool of blood that her only option was a total hysterectomy.
An Alternative Approach To Endometriosis
Alicia looked into alternative medicine approaches along with acupuncture and Chinese herbs and a special diet to control her symptoms of endometriosis. Acupuncture can be more effective at managing the pain associated with endometriosis, when compared with hormone drug therapies according to recent research.
The team from Tongji University also found that 92% of women who underwent acupuncture experienced relief. In comparison only 52% did of those who took the drug therapies. The team also found that a year later, women from the drug group were once again experiencing endometrial pain.
Alicia’s diet plan involved cutting out spicy or processed foods, and avoiding dairy. Her main focus was on fruits, vegetables and eggs. While she was recommended to avoid potatoes, rice, nuts, beans and soy, or to at least eat in moderation.
Avoiding fatty foods such as red meat and dairy is also suggested, along with any foods with pesticides and toxins as when these foods are avoided, inflammation is reduced and pain improves. Many women have been reported to be successful by following this type of diet.
