5 Ways Sea Moss Treats Endometriosis
“Five cents worth of seaweed a day may dramatically improve a major cause of disability and compromised quality of the life among women.”
Dr. Michael Greger M.D. FACLM
Endometriosis is an estrogen-dependent condition affecting 1 in 12 women, and accounts for roughly half the cases of infertility and pelvic pain. It is triggered when too much estrogen in the blood, causing heavy, irregular and painful periods.
“It causes a ‘retrograde period’ where instead of blood flowing down, it goes up into the abdominal cavity, where bleeding tissue of the uterine lining can implant onto other organs” like uterus and ovaries.
It is a chronic disease that is under-reported, under-diagnosed, and not enough research has been done in large, controlled groups. Misinformation, trial-and-error treatments and misdiagnosis can be such a burden for women while dealing with this painful, on-going disease.
The lesions caused by Endometriosis can be removed with surgery, but the rate of recurrence within five years is as high as 50%. Eating sea veggies as a part of your regular diet just might be the answer this problem.
Let’s look at 5 ways sea moss treats endometriosis. Of course, other seaweeds are just as helpful.

Better research using a larger, controlled group is definitely needed. But it's common for there not to be a lot of scientific research for natural remedies. Although this study used bladderwrack powder, pretty much any edible seaweed can help to balance hormone levels in the body. Men benefit from balance hormones as well. Like women, they can have elevated estrogen levels due to meat consumption.
So, whether you consume seaweeds in the form of sea moss gels, powders or capsules, do consume daily. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month so it's a good time to give edible seaweeds try. They will keep our “wombanhood” and manhood (sorry no clever spelling) healthy and those hormones in check! 🤗❤️
