Human thoughts form consciousness, create mood, affect life in general. Scientifically proven: the disease has psychological roots. The psychosomatics of endometriosis, as well as other diseases of the gynecological spectrum, is that the woman does not accept her essence.
Endometriosis is an affliction that afflicts women, whose priorities include career growth and material benefits. Such qualities as purposefulness, activity, conquest of new heights, originally belonged to a man.
Women with such a character think like men. The denial of female qualities leads to the growth of cells, the appearance of endometrial hyperplasia.
Violation of gender identification as a cause of endometriosis
A child is born in a family and up to a certain point does not realize which sex it belongs to. With the help of his inner circle, his parents, he begins to identify himself with a boy or a girl. Formed sex role behavior.
In adolescence, gender-role identification is influenced by relationships with peers with the opposite sex. A girl accepts her role when there is a favorable psychological atmosphere in the family, an adequate model of parental relations is present.
Destructive relationships leave an imprint on the person, remain in the subconscious and lead to serious diseases, like endometriosis.
Father's caring attitude or domination are important factors in the formation of a girl's sexual identity. In families where the father did not give the proper amount of affection, attention, or was physically absent, the girl has a violation in the perception of her feminine.
Endometriosis suggests that the female essence is not formed, distorted or unconscious by a woman.
Psychological, mental and emotional causes of the disease
Endometriosis is a physiological expression of the absence of a “psychological” home. In the psyche of a woman this is reflected in the thoughts: “I don’t need me,” “I need somewhere to look for my home.” Feeling at home is associated with a sense of psychological security.
If the girl grew up in a dysfunctional family, she did not feel comfort and warmth. It happens that women are healed by creating their own family.
According to the materials described in the book of V. Zhikharentsau, lack of harmony in the soul, replacement of positive emotions with sweets, loss of control and a sense of security are the causes that affect the reproduction of endometrial cells.
Theory of Louise Hay.
Louise Hay described endometriosis as a physical expression of insecurity, frustration and sadness. Since childhood, a girl has been reproached and displeased by her parents. Treatment is to accept its attractiveness, the joy of achievement.
Theory Liz Burbo.
According to Liz Burbo, the cause of all psychosomatic diseases is the blocking of energy on the physical, emotional, mental level.
An emotional block occurs when a woman cannot have a child for several reasons. This may be the fear of responsibility, pain, death, physical and mental suffering.
Women's fears block the ability to continue the race. Independent, active women direct their energy to work instead of being realized in motherhood.
Emotional block can be formed if for a woman the idea of having a baby comes to the level of an overvalued idea. The body begins to "help", forming an additional layer of cells. Adenomyosis develops.
The fear of losing a figure, losing a job, inability to raise a child is concentrated in the organs of the reproductive system. Having got rid of irrational ideas about motherhood, a woman gets a chance for recovery. Otherwise, there is a risk of endometrial hyperplasia.
Endometriosis and relationships with men
Lack of trust in relationships, a sense of insecurity, humiliation destroy the feminine. The role of the victim in the relationship, disappointment in the opposite field provoke cell multiplication.
Women accusing, controlling, claiming a partner are often infertile due to endometriosis. They highly value their moral qualities - decency, loyalty, replacing love with them.
From the point of view of psychology, women with endometriosis suffer from women with certain characterological features:
- Increased anxiety
- Propensity to auto-aggression, self-dissatisfaction.
A number of psychiatrists and psychotherapists consider endometriosis and adenomyosis as a psychogenic autoimmune reaction. In the cerebral cortex, a focus of excitation is formed (an expression of internal aggression). It acts as a trigger for the growth of destructive reactions.
Some diseases of the human body develop, according to psychosomatics, because of a certain way of thinking, a certain delusion or emotion. Most often it is negative emotions, thoughts, attitudes and blockages, such as fear, anger, aggression, despair, etc., but sometimes there can be other reasons - in insecurity, confusion, etc.
It is believed that if the patient is deep enough to deepen in his internal state, he himself, or with the help of a psychologist, will be able to find the cause of the failure. And as soon as this blockage is lifted or the installation is destroyed, healing will come. Or it will start to occur much faster on the background of drug therapy.
Examples of situations
The disease is diagnosed after an abortion or miscarriage. This may be due to the fact that the installation “I cannot bring a child to my home” is formed in a woman. And the body reacts to it, trying to conditionally form a uterus somewhere else, for repeated attempts.
Often the disease occurs in adolescents. This is due to the feeling of loneliness, when the girl does not feel comfortable in the house of parents. Therefore, her inner desire to equip her home finds such an expression.
Many psychologists working with areas of psychosomatics consider endometriosis and its causes in their works. They provide various but similar explanations for the causes of this problem.
She sees the psychological causes of endometriosis in a sense of insecurity, insecurity. If they are supplemented by chronic resentment towards others, disappointments both in others and in themselves, then the appearance of this disease is possible. It is also typical for people who internally reproach themselves and others.
The correct setting in this case is: “I am strong and capable. I'm welcome. I love myself and a woman to be beautiful. I am pleased with everything that I have achieved and I know that I will achieve a lot in the future. ” Such a setup helps break down negative blockages and speed recovery.
This specialist believes that endometriosis develops as a result of a lack of a sense of security. If a woman is uncomfortable, uncomfortable with others, she feels constant frustration and frustration, then the disease can appear and progress. Usually, active use of sugar takes place, since it is he who replaces the love of self in this case.
The correct setting in this case is considered: “I love myself and I am in harmony with myself. Thanks to this, I make the right decisions, and my actions bring the expected result. ” As soon as the woman herself believes in these words, the healing process will begin.
This specialist gave the most complete description of this disease. She discovered the premise of its occurrence in three types of blocking attitudes — physical, emotional, and mental:
- Physical blocking is expressed by the fact that the body is trying to reproduce in a miniature the reproductive system, extending its mucous membranes to neighboring systems,
- The main emotional negative attitude is the impossibility of conceiving and bearing. These patients shift their own ability to "create" on other aspects of life - they constantly generate projects and ideas. Often the installation is associated with the fear of the birth process itself - the fear of death, pain, etc. This fear is so strong that it blocks the ability to conceive.
- The mental blockage is that the fear of childbirth creates a physical obstacle for conception. Getting rid of these fears will speed recovery.
The cure for this disease takes place in several stages. At first installations are found, then independently or with the help of a psychologist they are removed. And only then can recovery begin.
Do not take this area of knowledge too seriously. Psychosomatics is a non-scientific discipline that is not supported by most doctors and most psychologists. Therefore, it is impossible to replace drug therapy with psychotherapy in this case.
According to this specialist, with endometriosis, endometrial cells of the uterus leave the place where they should be. Therefore, the main conflict in a woman who suffers from it is: “My home is somewhere else. I must / must / want to find another home. ” Only by creating coziness around you, by making your own real home emotionally and physically comfortable, can you begin to heal from this disease.
Psychosomatics as a science
Psychosomatics is a relatively new science that studies the effect of psycho-emotional disorders on the physical condition. This term is used both in psychology and in medicine.
Negative psychological factors can be the cause of various diseases, including endometriosis. No one will deny that after suffering stress a person may have a headache and increase blood pressure. Other ailments develop in a similar way.
Disrupted psycho-emotional state causes a protective reaction in the body. In the brain starts the production of hormones that are designed to protect people from negative factors. When their level remains elevated for a long time, pathologies develop.
Features of psychosomatic condition
Gynecological diseases, including endometriosis, are not always caused by such factors as surgical interventions on the organs of the reproductive system, infections and viruses, inflammation. Older women often say that the cause of various female diseases is the lack of a personal life. Such a statement very well and clearly explains the psychosomatics of endometriosis.
What is psychosomatics? This is a state where a woman on an emotional level does not perceive herself as a woman and denies her mission to become a mother. At the same time, she so vehemently resists this, that the brain rearranges the work of the organs responsible for the production of sex hormones. In fact, a woman adjusts herself to block the normal development of the organs of the reproductive system, which leads to a change in the hormonal background and, as a result, impaired fertility and a decrease in the reproductive function of the female body.
Reasons for rejection
Gynecology and psychosomatics are closely interrelated with each other. Psychosomatic causes of women's diseases go from childhood and adolescence. Causes of psychological deviations:
- wrong family model
- bad relationships
- transferred operations.
If the family had problems in the relations of the parents, when the father humiliated, cheated, had a bad attitude towards the mother, the girl forms the wrong family model. When she grows up, her perception of men will be distorted. She will not be able to have a normal, strong relationship, due to the fact that she will constantly expect from her second half something bad, betrayal, rudeness, betrayal.
Women's psychology is designed in such a way that any emotional experience affects the state of the reproductive system. If a woman has had an abortion or has had an ectopic pregnancy that ended in an operation, she, at the level of the subconscious, not understanding it, denies herself as a future mother, believing that her uterus is not capable of carrying a child normally.
It sometimes happens that, having encountered once in life with unrequited love, and even more insults from a man, a woman begins to hate her body, tries to suppress her feminine principle in every possible way. Accordingly, its possible role as a mother is denied.
Another reason that from the point of view of psychology is becoming a factor in the development of female diseases is the visualization of resentment towards the mother. Having negative emotions about the family, the woman does not want to repeat them for herself, respectively, she denies the possibility of conceiving and having a child, because she simply does not need it.
The development of the disease may be due to the fact that when endometriosis is detected, a woman begins to reproach herself, thinking why she has it, what she did wrong, and suddenly it is a sign that she does not need to think about starting a family, that this is not her mission in life.
A common cause of the psychosomatic cause of endometriosis is an unreasonable fear of childbirth. Listening from her friends how it hurts and it is unpleasant, what complications can arise, a woman, fully immersed in her own fear, gives herself an installation that she will never have children in order not to go through this process.
If such a thought is constantly spinning in the head, as a result, psychosomatics will do its job - the brain will block the work of the reproductive system to produce hormones, hormonal failure will occur, which will lead to the development of endometriosis. When the disease begins to manifest itself, and the diagnosis is confirmed by a doctor, the woman will conclude that she will not be able to have children with such a disease, and her mental and emotional state will be physically confirmed.
Psychosomatics is a vicious circle. Mental problems cause the development of endometriosis, endometriosis leads to aggravation of the abnormal mental state.
Whatever the causes of psychosomatics, this condition can and should be treated. Otherwise, endometriosis and other gynecological diseases of the reproductive system will gradually worsen, a total change in the female personality will begin, psychological problems will become aggravated, and it will be impossible to manage without the help of a qualified specialist.
Endometriosis is one of the hardest diseases of the female reproductive system, which can simultaneously occur due to psychosomatic problems, lead to their aggravation, and cause disturbances of psycho-emotional state.
The causes of endometriosis are varied, so it is very difficult to identify precisely the psychosomatic abnormalities in a patient. To understand what exactly was the provoking factor, a thorough diagnosis is carried out. When laboratory tests and methods of instrumental diagnostics make it impossible to determine the physiological causes that triggered the onset of the disease, consultation with a psychiatrist is required.
A conversation is held with the patient, during which the specialist determines how she treats herself to herself, what is her relationship with the male sex, what was the relationship between parents in childhood, what is the relationship with her mother now
Therapy of endometriosis caused by psychosomatics is complex and long. The treatment is divided into several stages. An important role is played by the treatment of the disease itself. Depending on the severity of the clinical case, drug therapy is carried out with the use of hormone drugs, drugs are also prescribed to relieve the painful and unpleasant symptoms of endometriosis. In severe cases of prolonged pathology, a minimally invasive laparoscopic operation is performed to remove foci of endometriosis.
An important stage of treatment is the correction of the woman's psycho-emotional background. And sometimes it is a very difficult process. Many patients do not want to admit that they have psychological problems and, in consultation with a psychiatrist, behave stifled, not wanting to answer questions honestly. The doctor is faced with the task of pulling that moment from the female subconscious, which has so drastically affected her and caused further disorders.
Often, to identify the causes of a woman’s incorrect self-identification and why her brain began to block the normal functioning of the reproductive system, they resort to the hypnosis technique. Only after the woman recognizes the existence of the problem and is able to understand exactly what caused them, the psychotherapist will begin the active phase of treatment and the correction of her psycho-emotional state. Auxiliary therapy - the appointment of sedatives, antidepressants.
Sometimes the treatment of psychosomatic causes of endometriosis takes several years of hard work both by the patient and by a qualified specialist. The patient needs to be relieved of her fears, taught to feel herself a woman, correctly identify and perceive her feminine principle, forgive past offenses. Если женщина будет откровенна, как с врачом, так и с самой собой, что еще более важно, лечение будет проходить легче и быстрее.
Влияние психологии на эндометриоз
Заболеванием, с которым чаще всего сталкиваются женщины, является эндометриоз. With this pathology inside the uterus begins the process of active growth of the inner layer of its walls. A common sign of the development of pathology is blood discharge that appears between the menstrual cycle, accompanied by pain in the lower abdomen.
Depression, depressed mood, weakness are the main consequences of endometriosis. All these signs suggest that the state of women's health, in particular mental health, has deteriorated significantly.
With the help of psychosomatics, you can find the cause of the formation of pathology, especially in cases where it is impossible to find physiological factors.
Even at a young age, the identity of a woman is exposed to a strong external influence, which can cause a predisposition to the formation of pathology. For example, when parents subject their daughter to constant criticism, restrict the freedom of her actions, she becomes obedient. However, when she grows up, she stops noticing the restrictions set by her parents and is not able to stop in front of them. She can not solve conflicts, just closes and waits, when everything in itself is adjusted.
As a result, the development of endometriosis begins due to the violation of boundaries, and endometrial cells leave the uterus - this is a signal for help that a girl can ignore. In most cases, the disease is diagnosed in single, unmarried women who have a difficult, cold relationship with their parents.
Psychology considers if endometriosis is found in a woman during pregnancy, and she didn’t even plan to conceive - a sign of impaired personality boundaries, auto-aggression. Quite often, the pathology disappears or its symptoms subside after the birth of a child. This is explained by the fact that a woman begins to feel in herself a protector who should protect the child, ensure his well-being.
When a woman becomes confident in her abilities, her psychological state returns to normal and the disease subsides.
Experts believe that all gynecological diseases originate from the relationship between a woman and a man. Self-consciousness of women plays an extremely important role. If she considers herself to be inferior, flawed, then problems associated with the organs of the reproductive system will appear.
Endometriosis causes menstrual disorders, infertility, pain during sexual intercourse. Many gynecological diseases also lead to similar consequences. The girl is experiencing strong feelings when detecting any disease of the uterus, especially if it can cause infertility. Endometriosis psychosomatics is accompanied by various complexes, guilt feelings, fear, which in turn provokes the active development of pathology, which again leads to an unstable psycho-emotional state.
Psychosomatic factors must be studied in order to restore, prevent and improve the quality of life. A well-functioning emotional sphere, a positive effect on the general condition of the woman and her future child.
Endometriosis: definition, signs
This disease is characterized by the formation of a defect of the mucous membrane of the uterus.
Consequences of this phenomenon can be difficulties with conception, ectopic pregnancy, painful feelings during sex and dysmenorrhea. Before talking about the concept of "psychosomatic endometriosis," it is necessary to consider its symptoms and physiological processes, provoking the development of pathology. So, the symptoms of the disease are as follows:
- Thick bloody discharge from the vagina that does not occur during menstruation.
- Pain in the abdomen, in the lower back.
- Unpleasant sensation when urinating.
- Weakness, bad mood.
Varieties of the disease
There are two types of endometriosis - genital and extragenital. The first type is characterized by the fact that the disease affects only the organs of the reproductive system. The second type is associated with pathological processes that spread throughout the abdominal cavity. At the same time severe pains in the abdomen, disturbances in the activity of the intestines, stool mixed with blood may be observed. A variety of factors provoke the development of the disease. This may be an infection of the reproductive system, hereditary predisposition, abortion of pregnancy by artificial means. Unfortunately, many women do not pay enough attention to their physical well-being and go to a doctor only when complications arise as a result of a neglected disease. This makes treatment more difficult.
The causes of endometriosis in terms of physiology
Currently, scientists can not accurately determine the factors provoking the development of pathology. However, there are still several prerequisites for the development of the disease, for example:
- The presence of pathology in blood relatives (mother, grandmother).
- Insufficient hormone production.
- Artificial abortion.
- Late delivery.
- Spontaneous abortion.
- Cesarean section.
However, not all specialists take into account such factors as psychosomatic endometriosis. But the installation and way of thinking of a woman can greatly affect her health.
Psychological causes of the disease in childhood and in adulthood
Negative experiences - aggression, fear, hopelessness and sadness are often triggers for the development of various pathologies. Psychosomatics of endometriosis (if it is found in a woman) must be taken into account by a specialist, as the correct settings and way of thinking can cope with the disease and are considered an excellent complement to the main therapy (drugs, surgery). Unfortunately, many doctors tend not to trust psychotherapeutic methods, underestimate their positive impact.
Causes endometriosis psychosomatics considers both in childhood and in adulthood. If the girl’s mother and father tried to establish tight control and the limits of her personal desires and needs, this could adversely affect her mental and physical health.
A representative of the weaker sex, who has become accustomed to too harsh upbringing since childhood, is not capable of letting her individuality unfold fully. This leads to a personal crisis. In addition, such a woman often does not find the strength to protect herself.
Endometriosis and Gender Identity
Experts say that already in childhood a boy or girl understands his gender. The child is ready for the performance of the role model that is peculiar to his sex. During puberty, a girl correctly perceives her femininity and successfully builds relationships with young men only when the situation in her family is healthy. Endometriosis has psychosomatics, the causes and symptoms are often explained by the fact that the child was unable to establish normal relations with the parents. For example, if a girl did not receive from her father love, praise and approval, if he left the family, he died early. Endometriosis often arises from the fact that a woman does not accept her sex, is not satisfied with her.
Endometriosis and parent-child relationships
Often, experts find this disease in adolescents. The reason for contacting the girl to the doctor is severe pain during the first menstruation. Often this disease arises from the fact that it is brought up by a single mother, who tries in vain to build relationships with men. The lack of a worthy candidate for the role of the father, the constant lack of attention to the mother - all this has a negative impact on the somatic and mental health of the girl during puberty. Even if the dad is physically close, he can be alienated, constantly quarreling with his mother, all this causes the child a sense of uselessness, loneliness.
Specialists who consider endometriosis psychosomatics say that a woman who becomes ill as a result of such childhood disappointments will be able to cope with the disease only when she builds a strong family and gives birth to a child.
There are cases when the representative of the fair sex is faced with the problem of unplanned conception. She gives birth to a child, but cannot feel love for him. A woman shows anger towards her son or daughter, who by their birth have deprived her of her freedom and self-realization. In this case, the psychosomatic of endometriosis of the uterus is the rejection of the maternal role.
Causes of the disease in terms of Louise Hay
This expert in the field of psychosomatics sees the prerequisites for the development of endometriosis in the sense of danger and of the woman’s own vulnerability. Sometimes the patient also feels dissatisfaction with her surroundings and her own personality, hopelessness. This perception of life is found in those who, instead of solving problems, constantly blame themselves and others. According to Louise Hay, a woman is able to get rid of the disease only if she believes in herself and that she can be loved and successful, to accept and respect others and her own personality.
Liz Burbo's View
According to this psychologist, in endometriosis, psychosomatics involves three components - physical, emotional, and mental.
- The first factor is characterized by the fact that the body of a woman transfers her reproductive function to other organs and systems.
- The second reason lies in the emotions. Patients reject the idea that they are able to bear and have a baby, pushing the body to block this possibility by developing the disease. Often such women subconsciously transfer the function of the mother to other spheres of life, for example, career.
- The third factor in the development of the disease is associated with the thoughts of the patients. They have a strong fear of labor and are afraid to die or remain disabled as a result of the birth of a child.
Endometriosis: psychesomatics by Sinelnikov
This specialist in the field of medicine and psychotherapy is studying the influence of thoughts and emotions on the state of the body of the fair sex.
Valery Sinelnikov says that the causes of disease lie in psychological problems. Other factors only create additional conditions for the development of pathologies.
According to this specialist, it is necessary to consider in detail the situation of each patient, since the disease is provoked by various circumstances and reactions to them.
There is a certain set of thoughts and feelings that contributes to the emergence of a problem with the female reproductive system. What are the psychosomatic causes of endometriosis according to Sinelnikov? He claims that the disease appears in women, who tend to blame their partners often, to behave rudely to them.
The role of the relationship between a man and a woman in the development of the disease
Often, feelings of mistrust, instability, and dissatisfaction with a partner can provoke endometriosis. Women who experience such emotions prefer to blame their man, suspect him of deception, shout at him and be rude, dislike themselves and not allow the chosen one to appreciate his own personality.
According to experts, this style of behavior can cause gynecological diseases and difficulties in conceiving.
The psychosomatics of endometriosis is associated with the perception of all men as enemies. As soon as a woman stops feeling distrust and a threat in a relationship with a partner, adopts her natural function as a spouse and mother, she will get rid of health problems.
If we talk about treatment, it is important, since running endometriosis can lead to severe blood loss, iron deficiency in the blood, cancer. Sometimes patients need surgery, but most often the doctor simply prescribes a course of medications. Usually prescribed products containing hormones.
However, psychotherapeutic methods play an important role in getting rid of the pathology.
Psychosomatics of endometriosis in the treatment of the power of thought, of course, is taken into account, as many patients claim that they often experience negative emotions. Psychotherapy specialists are working to get rid of feelings such as guilt, aggression, resentment, and despair. These emotions are a ballast, they prevent people from living normally and being healthy.
Having an idea about endometriosis, its psychosomatics, treatment, psychotherapists line up in accordance with the situation that arose in the life of a particular patient. But among the general principles on which the methods of specialists are based, it is possible to single out a woman’s acceptance of her role, gender and the formation of positive attitudes.
Of course, psychotherapeutic sessions do not provide one hundred percent recovery. It is necessary to consult with the gynecologist, undergo examinations and take medications prescribed by the doctor. In order for the disease not to return, and the lack of inner harmony with itself is not a consequence of the development of another pathology, psychotherapy is a great option for improving health.
Endometriosis of the uterus - gynecological pathology, in which endometrial cells (this is the inner uterine layer) fall outside the uterus and begin to grow. These cells are very sensitive to sex hormones, which causes the monthly menstrual cycle: under the action of hormones, the endometrium expands and under hormonal effects begins to reject, if conception did not occur, there is no embryo in the uterus.
If endometrial cells grow outside the uterus, they do not lose their sensitivity to hormones, but only grow and reject every month where they are - in the intestine, navel, within the reproductive system, but outside the main reproductive organ.. Why is this happening, medicine can not answer. There are only assumptions about gene mutations, disorders of cell metabolism, and so on.
Why is this happening, medicine can not answer. There are only assumptions about gene mutations, disorders of cell metabolism, and so on. Endometriosis is manifested by abdominal pain, in the pelvic region, menstrual disorders, more heavy menstruation, longer menstruation than before, pain may occur during intercourse. In severe cases, it hurts to empty the intestines and bladder. Endometriosis is considered one of the causes of female infertility.
Since we are talking about cells of the uterus structural layer, psychosomatics considers endometriosis as a disorder of female self-identification. Psychoanalysts call this gender identification. No child in the world is born with the understanding of which sex he belongs to. Until a certain age, they all grow up in the same sliders and diapers, they wear the same overalls, which differ only in color. And only then the child begins to attribute himself to one or another sex, which completely depends on which sex his parents belong to.
In puberty, the girl either happily assumes the role of a future woman, or begins to abandon her, adopting the male pattern of behavior.
Families where the girl sees how the mother suffers, or experiences maternal aggression on herself, are more likely to not accept her own feminine principle until the end, it will be unpleasant for her.
It is these girls who mostly choose male professions, are friends mostly with men, compete and compete with them, become champions in boxing, car racing, powerlifting.
The female principle in such a woman is blurry, not specified, she does not perceive him as a dominant in her life, and therefore gradually “blurry” and physical develops on a subconscious level - the cells of the main female reproductive organ spread to where they are not at all, lost endometrial natural boundaries.
The second probable cause of psychosomatic medicine is a woman’s lack of a sense of security and of her own “home” (in the general sense of the word). This means that a woman at any moment is ready to break off in search of a new “home,” cozy and safe. But there, most likely, she will not find him. The keeper simply does not have a psychological reliable focus.
Pain on the background of endometriosis without loss of reproductive function is characteristic of women, who see in their genitals, in their nature, in sex something shameful and relate to this, respectively.
Infertility on the background of endometriosis develops in women who so deny the feminine that they do not want to be mothers (subconsciously they are afraid of childbirth, they are afraid not to raise and raise a child as a worthy person, they have a fear that they will not cope financially and physically).
Another large category of patients with endometriosis - women who really want to get pregnant. This idea is elevated to the rank of obsession, they torture themselves and those around them. As a result, endometrium on a hormonal background creates an additional, extra layer, and this is the basis of the development of endometriosis and adenomyosis (germination of endometrial cells in the muscle tissue of the uterus, followed by inflammation of the latter).
Но также, по мнению исследователей в области психосоматической медицины, развиться эндометриоз может и у женщин, которые слишком требовательно, по-диктаторски относятся к своим партнерам, которые презирают или ненавидят мужчин в целом и партнера в частности. Often the prerequisites for the disease are created in childhood, when a girl’s relationship with her father is not the best.
Many psychiatrists and psychoanalysts regard endometriosis and adenomyosis as a psychogenic autoimmune pathological condition. The focus of excitation in the cerebral cortex is caused by one of the above factors, so the pathological process starts, namely: the growth of endometrial cells is not at all where it is provided by nature.
Revealing the true cause is the main condition for successful treatment, especially since traditional medicine cannot offer anything special to a sick woman. For pains, painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs are prescribed, which do not bring recovery. They are trying to fight the foci of endometrial cell proliferation with hormones, but so far no particular efficacy of hormonal treatment has been found. Surgery to remove all lesions is the only way out, but even here there is a high probability that the problem will return again.
In this way, without psychocorrection can not do.
Only by removing the main cause, realizing the psychology of her illness, a woman can cope with a focus of activity in the cortex, and the development of endometrial cells will slow down, and then it is possible that it will stop altogether.
It is important for a woman to feel herself as a woman, to relate adequately to pregnancy and childbirth, without forbidding herself to become pregnant and not trying to become pregnant at any cost.
It is important to be respectful and positive towards men, a partner who is close to his own father, brother, friends and acquaintances of the male sex. Only by reviewing the installation, which is destructive for a woman, can one cope with such a strange and hardly explainable phenomenon as endometriosis.
Psychological condition of endometriosis
Endometriosis is a common disease of the female genital organs, in which the inner layer of its wall grows in the uterus. To detect this pathology is most often possible by bleeding, not associated with the menstrual cycle, and pain in the abdomen.
A concomitant symptom of endometriosis is a long depressive state of the woman, a feeling of depression, which indicates the psychological roots of the disease.
The psychosomatics of endometriosis makes it possible to find out the causes of the pathology in cases where they cannot be explained by the physiological structure of the organs or the consequences of the infection.
Predisposition to this disease can be formed in childhood, when the identity of the future woman is exposed to the slightest impact from the outside.
If her parents overly restrained the little girl in freedom of action and actions, constantly criticized, applied an authoritarian parenting style, she becomes extremely obedient.
But, growing up, the girl does not feel the limits of her personality, does not know how to defend them. If a conflict is brewing in a relationship, she prefers not to solve it, but to close her eyes to disagreements and wait for everything to be settled.
At this time, the body due to the development of endometriosis (the output of endometrial cells outside the uterus) indicates that the boundaries are violated, and something should be done. Often such a diagnosis is made to unmarried girls who have broken relationships with their mother, there is a coldness in the relationship.
If endometriosis is diagnosed in pregnant women who did not plan to conceive a child, this indicates impaired personality boundaries and auto-aggression (self-directed aggression).
It happens that after childbirth, the manifestations of endometriosis diminish or even disappear. This happens because the mother learns to protect her child and herself as a source of his well-being, to defend their borders. The feeling of one's own strength and ability to stand up for oneself forms the inner calm of a woman, and the disease recedes.
Any emotion requires an outlet in one form or another. Since in our culture there is an unofficial ban on the expression of negative emotions, driven inside, they affect the physical condition of a person.
Therefore, any violation in the functioning of the organism to some extent has psychological reasons.
The state of a woman’s reproductive system affects her ability to conceive and give birth to a child. A number of negative factors lead to the formation of a rejection of pregnancy and childbirth in the mind of a woman; therefore, physiological conception becomes impossible. Endometriosis greatly interferes with reproductive function and can lead to infertility.
The psychological causes of endometriosis can be as follows:
- The experience of constant danger, insecurity. A woman feels fear, worries about the future, feels threatened. And for conceiving and carrying a child, emotional comfort and financial stability are necessary.
- Excessive experiences of an abortion or miscarriage that occurred earlier. The experiences of a woman about the death of a child in the womb are unconsciously reflected in finding a safe home for an unborn child elsewhere, not in the womb.
- Failure to take one’s body as feminine, self-doubt. The girl unconsciously does not feel beautiful, able to endure, give birth and properly raise a child.
- Resentment and anger at parents (first of all, at the mother). Subconsciously, the woman decides not to continue the race due to the abundance of negative emotions experienced in the family. Accumulating, these emotions affect the body from the inside and provoke the development of endometriosis.
To a greater extent, women who are not able to express their emotions, but keep the experiences inside are subject to the influence of psychosomatic factors. The general physiological condition of a woman depends on the attitude of a woman to herself, her body and sexuality.
Negative beliefs, grievances and fears that are experienced leave their mark on her health. Therefore, it is necessary to work with the mental sphere in the same way as with the physical state of the organism.
To combat the manifestations of endometriosis is not easy. When studying the picture of the disease psychosomatic causes are in the first place, so without taking them into account all therapeutic measures do not lead to a cure.
Most gynecologists ignore these factors in the development of endometriosis, and not every patient is ready to seek help from a psychologist or psychotherapist.
Awareness of the problem is a big step on the path to healing, and high motivation to fight and self-development guarantees complete recovery.
Psychological work with fears, wrong beliefs, suppressed aggression, with the emotional sphere of a woman leads to an awareness of the causes of endometriosis and a change in the way of thinking. Mental changes, in turn, lead to physical changes in the body.
Areas of work of the psychologist in the treatment of endometriosis:
- increase self-esteem
- work on accepting your body, femininity and sexuality,
- assistance in living and expressing negative emotions,
- study of insults, fears, loss experiences and other strong emotional reactions,
- learning relaxation and stress relief techniques.
The process of psychotherapy for endometriosis can be difficult and lengthy, but the result will meet all expectations. In addition, the general well-being will improve and the emotional background will increase.
Psychosomatics of gynecological diseases, possible consequences
Any gynecological pathology associated with the relationship between a man and a woman, including sexual. The self-consciousness of the girl also plays an important role in this. Perception of oneself as defective, inferior, disadvantaged in rights leads to certain violations of the reproductive function.
The development of endometriosis can lead to menstrual disorders, infertility, and painful sensations during sexual intercourse. Other gynecological diseases have a similar effect - cervical erosion, inflammation of the appendages and ovaries, uterine myoma, and more.
In diseases of the uterus, a woman always worries about the possible consequences, the worst of which is infertility. Complexes of fear and guilt constantly overwhelm her, pursuing a sense of their own inferiority, a desire to isolate themselves from everyone.
This provokes the acceleration of the dynamics of the disease and its manifestations, which again leads to an increase in anxiety, fear and other negative reactions.
Depression, apathy, depression, social isolation of the personality, suicidal tendencies can become psychological consequences of gynecological diseases.
The study of psychosomatic factors provides a great resource for preserving and restoring a woman’s health and improving the quality of her life.
Positive perception of the world, oneself, men and the fact of the birth and upbringing of a child is the key to a harmonious family life and preservation of mental and physical health.
Psychosomatics, like science
Psychosomatics is a well-known term that is found both in the medical literature and in psychology. The direction of this science is to study the effect of psycho-emotional disorders on the somatic (bodily) state of the body.
It is no secret to anyone that negative changes in the emotional factor, especially their regular manifestations, negatively affect all systems and organs of a person. For example, the influence of mood or experiences on the cardiovascular system. Everyone knows that under stress or emotional stress, the brain receives a signal of danger, and that, in turn, begins to include protection.
In medicine, this process is called a protective-adaptive response. In the hypothalamic-pituitary part of the brain hormones are produced, the task of which is to protect the body at the time of psychological disorder. Therefore, during stress, the pressure rises, which is a protective reaction of the body in front of a psychosomatic influence factor.
Many psychologists say that psycho-emotional disorders are only half of the psychosomatic effect on the body. A large role in this science is given to the mental perception of the external world. And in order to identify the cause of a disease, one should delve into one’s spiritual state and determine what influenced the physical condition.
Psychological causes of endometriosis
Psychological causes exist in the etiology of any disease. No exception is the reproductive system, namely its reproductive function. The duty to give birth to a child lies on the shoulders of every woman. The physiology of the body begins to prepare for this at puberty at the age of 12 years. The beginning of this process is indicated by the onset of menstruation. After the onset of menstruation, the body is capable of conceiving and carrying a fetus.
Many women experience infertility caused by endometriosis. Science psychology explains this pathological condition as a reaction to the emotional and mental perception of the world around us. That is, due to any negative factors, a negative reaction to pregnancy and childbirth appears in the brain, and the physiological state of the body blocks the possibility of conception.
From the personal attitude of women to themselves, their sexuality and sex, in general, depends on the state of women's health. From the point of view of psychosomatics, the deep emotional causes of diseases of the genital organs are rooted in well-established beliefs, received before the insults, and the rejection of his body as feminine. Any of these mental beliefs is reflected in the physical condition of the body.
With regard to endometriosis, the psychological reasons may lie in several emotional phenomena:
- Feeling of helplessness. The woman feels a certain insecurity, the feeling of attack is constantly manifested, there is an expectation of the bad from the man.
- Self-flagellation. Most women with endometriosis do not know how to realize their personality, leaning on the opinions of others and not finding a clear balance. Because of this, they begin to scourge themselves, reproach and not respect themselves and their bodies.
- Disappointment and chagrin. Frustration arises on any action on the state of the body. Even upset thoughts about the future.
- Anger. Anger, namely, negative emotions that are not derived, negatively affect the body, destroy the body from the inside, causing the development of severe gynecological pathologies.
Based on the above psychological reasons, doctors have found that women who are unable to bring emotions to the surface are exposed to psychosomatic factors. Women who are used to keeping everything inside are at greater risk of developing endometriosis.
Valery Sinelnikov on the psychological causes of gynecological diseases
Valery Sinelnikov, a general practitioner and psychotherapist, deeply studied the influence of psychological aspects on women's health. He claims:
“Every person creates a disease himself. Repeatedly examining cases from my practice, I was convinced that such external factors as nutrition, ecology, infection, only create a favorable background for the course of pathology. There is something deep inside that determines the development of the disease. And it is absolutely unimportant, this disease of the soul or body.
In his opinion, there is no system that could determine the specific effect of certain psychological disorders on the physical condition. For each patient, it is individual, as each person reacts differently to different situations. But among all the mental experiences that occur in patients, there are several typical disorders that lead to the development of gynecological pathologies.
EHis generalization of the psychological causes of endometriosis is the pathological perception of a man as a predator. According to his description, such women are in constant tension:
- constantly expect bad things from men,
- very critical towards the male sex
- characterized by increased rudeness
- tend to make constant claims
- show strong discontent
- constantly send reproaches.
The path to healing, in the opinion of Valery Vladimirovich Sinelnikov, lies in the ability to learn not to perceive a man as a mass, not to associate them with each other, not to be detached with his partner, to show more respect for his personality, to cease constantly fearing “hidden threat”.
In his book “Love Your Disease,” Valery Sinelnikov writes that the womb is the temple of a woman’s creativity. The somatic condition of the uterus shows how a woman was able to express herself as a person, wife or mother. In case of any disappointments or disappointments connected with one’s life, the state of the uterus is oppressed, namely its genital function.
Physical blockage occurs as a result of already existing emotional disorders. The body's response to fears or disappointments is the provoking by the body of the development of a pathological condition that is able to inhibit the female reproductive function.
Endometriosis is a frequent disease in this situation. It is a gynecological disease in which the endometrium, the mucous layer of the uterus, whose function is the formation of a capsule for the fetus (placenta), grows beyond its limits. With the activation of adhesions, which develops in the later stages of the pathology, the ability to become pregnant is completely disabled.
It is in this way that the physical blocking of the body for possible fertilization is carried out.
Liz Burbo defines emotional blocking of endometriosis as the inability of a woman to give birth to a child. Most often, this reaction is observed in successful women who work in leadership positions. Their childbearing function is manifested in the creation of a new life, not for a child, but for new projects or ideas. Such a woman has a desire to have children, but also has a fear of the consequences of childbirth.
These may be complicated births, possible miscarriages or rejection of the fetus, death, etc., especially if such a practice was observed in her mother or in her first personal experience. Such fear is much stronger than the desire to have a baby, so the body blocks the possibility of fertilization.
Doctors have noticed that when diagnosing endometriosis, psychosomatics, namely the mental perception of the world, is in great concern not for children, but for the process of childbirth. In this situation, the attitude to childbirth is, as something painful and dangerous, which is a signal to the protection of the body.
It is interesting that the fear of childbirth and the desire to have a baby is shared by the body. Fear is defined as the development of a pathological condition. The desire to have a baby contributes to the formation of the so-called second uterus, since the endometrium continues to function outside the uterus. Often, when a pathology occurs, an ectopic pregnancy.
The only way out, according to psychologist Liz Burbo, is to overcome his fear of childbirth. Patients with endometriosis should emotionally feed their desire to have a child. It is this therapy that contributes to the inhibition of the pathological spread of endometrioid heterotopies. Если женщина забеременела и родила ребенка, эндометриоз проходит сам по себе.
Эндометриоз – это тяжелое гинекологическое заболевание, этиология которого до конца не изучена, включая психологические причины развития патологии. There are many versions from different psychologists and therapists who conducted practical research, but so far no exact factor has been derived that in any case negatively affects the endometrium.
Endometriosis psychosomatics varies between the fear of childbirth and negative attitudes towards men. Both that, and another, can negatively influence the basic function of the woman - to give birth to the child. Practitioners and doctors today are trying to determine the main cause of this disease, but all come to different conclusions.
One thing is certain: a man and a woman were created as two beginnings. The masculine is yang, the feminine is yin. Two energies must exist in parallel, completely dependent on each other. Neither woman nor man will be able to continue their race without each other. Therefore, any omissions, disappointments, reproaches, etc., should be completely absent from the couple who wish to not only safely conceive a child, but also raise it.
In the world, everything must take its course. Since ancient times, it was determined that a man is a breadwinner, and a woman is the keeper of the hearth. If this or that gender starts to perform not its function, it threatens with possible psycho-emotional disorders, as a result, all sorts of pathological conditions arise and develop.
Psychological causes of the disease
Pathological growths of the glandular tissue of the uterus and ovaries may occur due to the woman’s childhood or adult problems. A possible reason is the non-acceptance by a woman of her own gender identity. This often happens if a girl was deprived of her father’s love as a child: he died early, left the family, mistreated the baby or her mother. If parents often quarrel with each other, the child feels unnecessary, which negatively affects his physical condition.
Experts in the field of psychosomatics believe that the cause of endometriosis is a complex relationship with parents. The disease can happen not only because of the absence of the father, but also because of the lack of attention from the mother.
Pathology can also arise in the situation when parents were too demanding on their daughter. Excessive severity does not allow the girl to show their own individuality, which leads to a personal crisis. Such girls in adulthood suffer not only from endometriosis:
- often the disease is accompanied by inability to refuse,
- victim complex
- inability to protect yourself.
Causes of the disease can occur in adulthood. If an unplanned pregnancy occurs, the woman may not have warm feelings for the child born. Often, girls are angry at the newborn, because with his birth they lose some of their previous opportunities, they do not feel an inner readiness to take care of another person. Rejection of the role of the mother can cause endometriosis.
Other reasons for the appearance of a pathological condition in women are a feeling of insecurity in a partner, lack of satisfaction with relationships. A woman may suspect a man of lying, infidelity, be rude to him, do not let her lover appreciate her as a person.
Psychologist Liz Burbo
American psychologist Liz Burbo believes that this disease arises because of a woman’s refusal to accept her ability to bear and give birth to a child. Such girls often prefer family careers. The body reacts to such thoughts, as a result of which the process becomes impracticable. Strong negative emotions associated with the generic process can also lead to endometriosis. If a woman is too afraid to die during childbirth or remain disabled, there will be a disease that prevents pregnancy and childbirth.
The specialist also speaks of physiological causes: a woman can transfer reproductive function to the organs of other body systems.
Louise Hay Technique
Healer Louise Hay states that the underlying reason for the development of the disease is a sense of vulnerability, a sense of danger. Sick women often experience hopelessness, are unhappy with themselves or the people around them: friends, acquaintances, relatives. She refuses to solve problems, prefers to blame neighbors or circumstances for her failures.
Louise Hay believes that such a patient can be cured only when her self-esteem becomes adequate. It is necessary to take responsibility for your own life, stop waiting and start acting.
Psychosomatics by Sinelnikov
Healer Sinelnikov argues that endometriosis occurs in those women who do not know how to build harmonious relationships with partners. If a girl too often blames her man, tries to suppress him, treats him roughly, then pathology can occur. The specialist also states that the reasons must be sought individually with each patient, since the circumstances and reactions to them in girls are different.
For the treatment of endometriosis, refuse medical therapy, surgery is not worth it, because Working with a psychotherapist will help get rid of the causes of the disease, but will not eliminate the symptoms, will not restore health. It is important to undergo a course of therapy in a timely manner, since running endometriosis can cause cancer, large amounts of blood, and iron deficiency.
Women for treatment are often prescribed hormones. In severe cases, surgery may be necessary.
Important sessions of psychotherapy. The program is selected individually for each woman, based on her personal characteristics. The psychotherapist will help the patient to accept her feminine nature, to form positive attitudes. Psychotherapy is also useful for a cured disease, since practicing with a psychologist will prevent the return of a pathological condition.
