As we mentioned in previous articles, endometriosis growing somewhere else other than the endometrium also reacts to hormonal signals of the monthly menstrual cycle by building up tissue, breaking it, and eliminating it through the menstrual period. As we know, herbs play a very important role in some cultures in treating all kinds of diseases. In this article, we will discuss how blue cohosh helps to treat endometriosis.

Blue cohosh (Caulophyllum thalictroides) is a species of Caulophyllum and family of Berberidaceae. It is a medium-tall perennial with blue berry-like fruits and bluish-green foliage. It has been used by herbalists in relieving menstrual cramps in traditional medicine.
II. How blue cohosh effects women with endometriosis
1. Reduce menstrual cramps
Blue cohosh is said to contain elements that help in protein and fat metabolism which helps to regulate the production of prostaglandins hormone during the menstrual cycle. Over-production of certain hormones of the prostaglandins family causes over-reaction of uterine muscles resulting in abdominal pains.
2. Hormone balancing
It is said that blue cohosh has a property in balancing the estrogen levels by occupying the estrogen receptor sites, thereby it helps to lower levels of estrogen and reduces effects of estrogen dominance that increases the risks of cancer and abnormal cell growth.
3. Increase blood flow
Blue cohosh is said to help bring blood to the abdomen and increases the circulation of blood resulting in easing pain caused by blood stagnation during menstrual period.
4. Nervous system
Blue cohosh is an antispamsmodic that helps to ease tension of nervous system resulting in reducing symptoms of endometriosis during menstrual cycle.
Blue cohosh contains phytoestrogen which helps to reduce the levels of bad estrogen that causes menstrual cramps.
