Natural Remedies for Endo Pain

Endometriosis is often simplified to the notion of “painful periods,” but it entails much more. Symptoms such as bloating, nausea, and pain can occur at any time during the menstrual cycle, profoundly affecting daily life. Traditional medical treatments are crucial, but combining them with natural remedies can enhance pain management. Here are some natural ways that have helped me and might help you too:

Heat Therapy

Heat is a comforting, easy-to-use remedy. A heating pad applied to the abdomen or back (depending on where your pain is) can soothe the sharp pains of endometriosis. When the pain spreads or intensifies, soaking in a hot bath or spending time in a sauna can also help relax the pelvic muscles and reduce inflammation, providing substantial relief.


The use of CBD lotions has gained popularity for pain relief in endometriosis due to CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties. Products like CBD Lotion, gummies or tinctures which is packed with a high concentration of CBD, can be particularly effective. I’ve applied CBD lotion directly to areas of pain, such as the lower abdomen, and found significant relief during flare-ups.

THC and THCA Flower

THC has been noted for its pain-relieving properties, but its legality varies by location. An alternative is THCA flower, which is legal in many areas where THC is not. THCA, the acidic precursor to THC, can be converted into THC through decarboxylation (heating), offering similar benefits without the legal constraints. This can be a valuable option for those seeking the therapeutic effects of THC.

THCA can come in flower form, or concentrates like THCA diamonds or THCA badder. If you are new to THCA, I recommend you start with the flower.

Mindfulness and Stress Reduction

Stress can exacerbate endometriosis symptoms, making pain management even more challenging. Incorporating mindfulness techniques can significantly impact your well-being. Apps like Curable focus on managing chronic pain through mindfulness and have been beneficial. Simple practices such as guided meditation or breathing exercises can help lower stress levels and potentially reduce pain intensity.

Dietary Adjustments

Adding another layer to natural pain management involves dietary changes. Some women find that reducing intake of certain foods that promote inflammation, like red meat and refined sugars, and increasing anti-inflammatory foods like turmeric, ginger, and omega-3-rich fish, can help manage symptoms. Each body is different, but paying attention to how certain foods affect your endometriosis can be enlightening.

Combining these natural approaches with medical treatments has been key in my journey with endometriosis. It’s important to consult with healthcare providers when adding new elements to your treatment plan, but exploring these natural remedies may provide additional comfort and pain relief.
