nDō : management of Endometriosis and dysmenorrhea

Endometriosis is a pelvic inflammatory process with altered immune surveillance in the local peritoneal microenvironment. A local inflammatory microenvironment will sustain the growth and maintenance of endometriosis through endometrial-peritoneal adhesion, invasion, angiogenesis, and proliferation. The inflammation process in endometriosis causes pelvic pain and infertility, two major symptoms of endometriosis.

nDō is an evidence-based Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) formulation that has been shown to be effective in the management of Endometriosis, dysmenorrhea and reproductive diseases compromising female fertility. This formula targets multiple therapeutic pathways and provides powerful analgesic properties, reduces inflammation, promotes anti-angiogenic activity, and modulates the immune system.
