Dr. Marchese explains when she can tell a naturopathic treatment for endometriosis is working properly.
In terms of, you know, how long does it take for treatments to actually work and how do we know they are working is typically it’s a two-month cycle between the environmental piece and the Frequency Specific Microcurrent that I do on patients, that’s about a six to eight week treatment approach and during that time they will have maybe one or two menstrual cycles and we are really basing the effects of the treatments, is it working, on a woman’s symptoms, have the painful menstrual cycles stopped; has the pain with intercourse gone away or the painful bowel movements, and that’s really how we know that the treatment is working is the patient is symptom free and goes on with their life and functions normally.
