Endometriosis is a whole-body disease

Even the ancients knew thisBack pain? Check. Bladder pain? Check. Vomiting, diarrhea, swellings throughout the body? Check. – These were just a few of the whole-body symptoms described more than 2,500 years ago by Hippocratic physicians who observed a debilitating endometriosis-like disease they called ‘strangulation of the womb.’ Similar observations were made by countless other physician-scientists throughout the pre-modern ages, including by 17th century physician, Thomas Sydenham, who described an endometriosis-like disease of young women (being called ‘hysteria’ in his time) which caused “hysterical lumps…throughout the body”, “pain in the bladder”, vomiting… More…

Bowel Endometriosis

You vs The Entire Medical Establishment: Bowel Endometriosis & how it can feel trying to fight for the right diagnosis.
Thanks especially to the activism of women with endometriosis, greater awareness about this potentially debilitating disease has been achieved in recent years. Unfortunately, much work is still left to be done, as we still see patients who’ve had their bowel endometriosis in particular misdiagnosed as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (Spastic Colon), Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s Disease, Celiac Disease, or other more well-known gastrointestinal disorders. Many women with endometriosis have even had their severe bowel symptoms dismissively brushed off as mere indigestion. More…

Endometriosis of young girls and teenagers

Endometriosis: A Disease of Adolescence: For most of the modern age, there was a long-standing myth that endometriosis was a disease affecting mostly adult women. However, endometriosis is actually a disease of adolescence, a fact Dr. Nezhat has been publishing about and teaching his students for many years. This observation was also made by ancient physicians from more than 2,500 years ago, who reported on an endometriosis-like condition referred to as the ‘disease of young girls’, or the ‘disease of virgins’ because they noticed that it seemed to be more common in young girls who had begun menstruating.  More…

OVARIAN ENDOMETRIOSIS: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Endometriomas still mistaken f0r functional ovarian cysts: The ovaries are one of the most complex and important organs of the female anatomy, not just for their life-giving properties, but also because of their dual role as endocrine organs (glands) that produce some of a woman’s most vital hormones, such as androgen, estrogen, and progesterone. However, the amazing feats of your ovaries don’t stop there; they also produce essential paracrine-autocrine hormones like oxytocinrelaxininhibinactivin, and follistan….  More…

Confessions from the Operating Room

The most challenging surgical cases: Have you ever wondered what sorts of situations in the OR might be unnerving even for surgeons? Well, we thought it might be an interesting topic to explore, especially because it could help prospective patients learn more about the different types of surgical techniques and technologies that Dr. Nezhat uses to restore health in the safest way possible. And so, in this week’s post, we review the following two kinds of surgical obstacles that the majority of surgeons would admit could be among the most challenging to face … More…

Even the ancients knew…

Back pain? Check. Bladder pain? Check. Vomiting, diarrhea, swellings throughout the body? Check. – These were just a few of the whole-body symptoms of an endometriosis-like disease, described more than 300 years ago, findings that Dr. Nezhat’s research uncovered for the first time in his article, ‘Endometriosis: ancient disease, ancient treatments.’

Doctor Camran Nezhat specialize in endometriosis. For many years, Dr. Nezhat has been spreading the word that endometriosis is a whole body disease, an understanding that even Hippocratic physicians from 2,500 years ago had come to believe about an endometriosis-like disease they called “strangulation of the womb.” Similar observations were made by physicians from more than 300 years ago, including from the preeminent 17th century physician, Thomas Sydenham.
Yet, despite the ancient observations and endless trails of whole-body somatic destruction so plainly – and histopathologically – evident in modern times, many today still somehow overlook all the signs and symptoms that have stretched back for centuries. It seems to be a clear-cut case of “what the mind doesn’t know, the eye doesn’t see.” In the next phases of our team’s awareness work, we’ll do our best to help bring (back) the ancient understanding – that endometriosis is a whole body disease – out from the fringes and to the forefront of medical and societal discourse.
