New Clinical Insights into Endometriosis, the Pelvic Microbiome and Immune Dysfunction

Endometriosis can be a tricky condition to make progress with. This is partly because our understanding of the causes of endometriosis has not been clear. This has changed recently and our understanding of endometriosis has progressed considerably. We now know much more about its causes and its triggers.

The new picture of endometriosis is of a whole-body inflammatory disease. It is dependent on oestrogen but is not caused by oestrogen.

In her presentation, Lara will challenge the popular ‘oestrogen dominance’ theory of endometriosis and will instead examine recent findings of the deep immune dysfunction lying at the heart of the disease. In particular, she will explore the role of the bacterial lipopolysaccharides in the pathogenesis of endometriosis and will survey the effectiveness of natural immune-modulating treatments.

Lara will define the two main roles of the microbiome in endometriosis: oestrogen detoxification and immune regulation.


  • What roles oestrogen and progesterone have in endometriosis
  • Which body systems are also affected by the same causes of endometriosis
  • The latest research on immune dysfunction
  • How lipopolysaccharides play a key role in the pathogenesis of the disease
  • How to use natural strategies and medicines in endometriosis including
    • Removing antigenic food proteins
    • Probiotics
    • Zinc and selenium
    • Turmeric
    • N-acetyl cysteine
    • Berberine
    • Resveratrol


  • Clear explanations on how to achieve outstanding clinical results
  • A PDF of the presenter’s slides
  • Links to referenced research papers and useful clinical handouts
  • Access to the live presentations where you can ask questions
  • 6 months access to the audio and video recordings
  • Your exclusive invitation to the Health Masters Live Alumni Group

This session is 90 minutes: 75 minutes presentation + 15 minutes Q&A
