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.’
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.
