I have always been passionate about treating women’s health and hormonal imbalances. Women often prioritize the health and wellness of family members and loved ones. A lack of self-care can lead to a wide array of health concerns.
Endometriosis is one of the hormonal disorders that I have treated numerous times with great success. This is often a painful disorder, in which tissue similar to that normally lining the uterus, grows outside the uterus.
Some of the symptoms might include:
- Excessive menstrual cramps
- Heavy menstrual flow
- Pain during intercourse
- Painful bowel movements during menstruation
- Painful urination during menstruation
Western medicine treats the symptoms with medications. They use non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen for the pain and birth control pills. This treatment is only symptomatic and does not address the underlying cause of the disorder. This merely suppresses the symptoms and could lead to further problems. When this does not work, they do a surgical procedure called a laparoscopy, during which the endometrial implants are removed. The problem with this is that the endometrial implants most often return, so you end up with all the original symptoms once again.
I use a combination of homeopathic remedies, Chinese herbs, acupuncture, nutritional supplements and nutritional advice to treat endometriosis. This is not a cookie- cutter approach and the treatment depends on the individual. First I make a diagnosis using traditional Chinese medicine. Then I treat the underlying imbalance that has led to these groups of symptoms in the individual. There is no suppression of the symptoms, just fixing the underlying imbalance. No side effects and no surgery, just gently coaxing the body to bring about balance.
The following is but one success story:
Pregnant within 3 months of treatment. Trying to conceive for 6 years.
“To whom it may concern
In 2012 I went for acupuncture and herbal treatment with Dr. Petra Jooste due to infertility complications. My husband and I had been trying to conceive for 6 years but we were unsuccessful. After going for sessions with Dr. Jooste we fell pregnant at the end of March 2012 with a baby boy Joshua. He was born on 14 December 2012.
I truly believe that her thorough and professional treatment of my condition assisted us in falling pregnant and I would recommend her services to anyone else that may need assistance with infertility.”
