Romanian/English Version:Uleiul de Copaiba si Endometrioza/Copaiba Oil and Endometriosis

Acum 3 ani, am descoperit un studiu pe Pubmed.com despre un anume “ulei de copaiba”. (1)- (Vedeti sectiunea de Resurse de la finalul articolului pentru toate linkurile necesare). Acesta cred ca a fost primul meu contact cu uleiurile esentiale si am inceput sa sharuiesc informatia pe toate grupurile de Endometrioza pe care eram.

Uleiurile esentiale sunt inca controversate in privinta potentialului lor estrogenic (lucru foarte important in contextul endometriozei, dar si al cancerelor hormono dependente).

Va las aici (2) un articol gasit acum ceva timp, despre ce uleiuri esentiale nu sunt recomandate in aceasta situatie (deci nici in endometrioza, zic eu). Da, un specialist in uleiuri esentiale poate va clarifica situatia, insa atat timp cat exista controverse eu am decis sa merg pe calea cat de cat sigura, si anume a uleiurile cu ceva studii la baza in domeniul endometriozei si a beneficiilor cu implicare directa in aceasta afectiune.

Tocmai de aceea, iata mai jos 3 studii (titlu + concluzia, restul studiati voi, aveti linkul) legate de uleiul de copaiba, urmate de experienta mea cu acest ulei, insa nu uitati ca aceste informatii nu trebuie sa inlocuiasca consultul si recomandarile medicului specialist (eu insami sunt operata in 2016, deci aceste masuri au venit dupa o evaluare complexa si luarea unor masuri necesare in contextul afectiunii mele).

1). Dezvoltarea si evaluarea farmacologica a nano carierilor in vitro a rasinei din ulei de copaiba in tratamentul endometriozei (3).

Concluzie 1: Studiile farmacologice in vitro arata o reducere in viabilitatea si proliferarea culturilor de celule endometriotice pe tratamentul cu ulei de copaiba, sugerand ca sistemul dezvoltat ar putea fi o alternativa promitatoare in tratarea endometriozei.

2). Rasina oleaginoasa de Copaifera langsdorffii reduce viabilitatea celulelor, schimba morfologia celulara si induce moartea celulara in culturile stromale endometriotice umane. (4)

Concluzie: Informatiile noastre indica faptul ca NanoCOR (nanocomposit continand ulei de copaiba)are un impact mai mare asupra comportamentului celulelor stromale endoemtriotice umane survenind ideea ca NanoCOR ar trebui sa fie investigat mai mult ca o alternativa noua si eficienta in tratarea endometriozei.

3). Modificari ale volumului si histologiei focarelor de endometrioza la sobolanii tratati cu ulei de copaiba (Copaiferalangsdorffii) (1)

Concluzie 3: Uleiul de Copaiba pare a fi o alternativa de tratament promitatoare pentru endometrioza.

Experienta mea cu uleiul de copaiba:

  • Din 2016 l-am folosit sporadic, atat aplicat pe piele, prin masaj, cat si intern, in apa.
  • Atat cat l-am folosit, m-am simtit foarte bine (insa aveam un stil de viata sanatos si luam si alte suplimente) si nu am avut recidiva (endometrioza grad 4, operata si in 2014, si in 2016, ultima cu rezectie de intestin). Aproape intotdeauna l-am folosit in combinatie cu ulei de cocos (optional), ulei de tamaie si ulei de helichrysum. V-am mai spus, cred, ca aceasta mi se pare cea mai tare combinatie in endometrioza, detalii in resurse. (5). In afara de uleiul de tamaie luat din Oman, pe celelalte le iau de la Young Living, cea mai buna firma de pe piata, din punctul meu de vedere, mai ales ca multe se pot lua si intern. Cum puteti comanda uleiuri Young Living? Intrati pe site-ul lor: https://www.youngliving.com si, pentru a putea beneficia de preturi mai mici ale uleiurilor, puteti folosi ID-ul meu: 3965152 si numele meu: Marina Rasnoveanu.
  • Intern nu l-am tolerat foarte bine. Mai precis, am reusit sa il iau vreo luna, dupa care imi dadea mici neplaceri gastrointestinale. Am doua prietene care, la fel, intern nu l-au tolerat. Daca va stiti cu ceva probleme pe parte gastrointestinala, aveti grija cand il luati oral.
  • Daca aveti ceva legaturi cu Brazilia (tara de origine a uleiului de copaiba), incercati sa il procurati de acolo. Raportul calitate-pret este mult mai bun. Vedeti daca reusiti sa gasiti un ulei din exact tipul de copaiba folosit in studiile de mai sus.
  • Cea mai buna combinatie pentru endometrioza mi se pare asta: copaiba + tamaie + helichrysum. Detalii in resurse. (6)
  • O alta remarca mai am in contextul uleiurilor esentiale. Am gasit in researchul meu mai multe studii si articole despre potentialul estrogenic si efectele negative ale uleiului de lavanda si mai ales ale uleiului din arbore de ceai. Fiti foarte atente la aceste doua uleiuri (cel putin la ele). Studiul la care fac referire este acesta: “Substante chimice din uleiul de lavanda si arbore de ceai se pare ca ar fi perturbatori hormonali”. (7)

Cam atat despre uleiul de copaiba care, apropos, are multe alte beneficii (reduce durerea, imbunatateste aspectul tenului si a pielii, scade tensiunea arteriala, previne infectiile, reduce anxietatea etc. mai multe in resurse la punctul (8)).

Sper sa va fie de folos aceste informatii si sa va ajute pe parcursul acestui drum de manageriere cu succes a endometriozei sau a unor afectiuni asemanatoare.

English Version: Copaiba Oil and Endometriosis

Three years ago, I discovered a study on Pubmed.com about a so called “copaiba oil”. (1) – (See the Resources section for the links and studies) That was the first time when I heard about it and about essential oils and I started to share the information on every Endometriosis group I was.

Essential oils are still controversial in terms of their estrogenic effect (an important issue in endometriosis, but also in hormonal dependent cancers).

I will leave on the resources section an article (2) I discovered a while ago, about those essential oils that are not recommended in this situation (so neither in endometriosis). Yes, an essential oil specialist will clarify this thing, but still, pay attention when you choose such oils. That’s why, in this respect, I decided to stay safe and choose those oils that were implied in some studies on endometriosis or whose properties are directly efficient in this disease.

Here are 3 important studies (title + conclusion, you should study the rest of it, you have the link) on copaiba oil, followed by my experience with this, but do not forget all these should not substitute the medical consult and advice (I myself went through two surgeries so all these measures came after I did all my doctor adviced me to do in the context of my case – search for a good excision surgeon)

1). Development and pharmacological evaluation of in vitro nano carriers composed of lamellar silicates containing copaiba oil-resin for treatment of endometriosis. (3)

Conclusion: In vitro pharmacological studies showed a reduction in viability and proliferation of endometriotic cell cultures upon COPA nanocomposite treatment, suggesting that the system developed here can be a promising alternative therapy for the oral treatment of endometriosis.

2). The oil-resin of the tropical rainforest tree Copaifera langsdorffii reduces cell viability, changes cell morphology and induces cell death in human endometriotic stromal cultures.(4)

Conclusion: Our data indicate that NanoCOR has a greater impact on the behaviour of human endometriotic stromal cells than on the eutopic endometrium stromal cells, supporting the idea that NanoCOR should be further investigated as a novel and valuable alternative to treat endometriosis.

3). Changes in the volume and histology of endometriosis foci in rats treated with copaiba oil (Copaiferalangsdorffii). (1)

Conclusion:  Copaiba oil (Copaiferalangsdorffii) appears to be a promising alternative treatment for endometriosis.

My experience with copaiba oil:

  • I have been using it since 2016, but only from time to time, applied on skin, through massage, but also internally.
  • As long as I used it, I felt very well, with no recurrence (two endometriosis surgery, the last one with bowel resection in 2016), but in the meantime I did have a healthy lifestyle with diet and other supplements too). Almost always I used copaiba oil with coconut oil (optional), frankincense oil and helichrysum oil. I think I told you before that I consider “this trio” the best in endometriosis. You can read more on the resources section (5)
  • You can order copaiba oil (and not only this oil) from Young Living, the best brand in essential oils, from my point of view. Enter on their website: https://www.youngliving.com and, to benefit from better prices, you can use my ID 3965152 and my name. Marina Rasnoveanu.
  • Internally, I didn’t tolerate it very well. I succeeded to take it one month, but afterwards I had some minor gastrointestinal issues. I have two friends who also couldn’t take it because of this, so if you know yourselves more sensitive in this area, please pay attention when taking copaiba oil orally.
  • Externally, in a massage for pelvic area and lower back area I think it is the best.
  • If you do have connections in Brasil (the native country of this oil), try to purchase it from there. It is cheaper and, in my opinion, of a higher quality. Also, see if you find it that particular type of copaiba oil used in the above studis.
  • The best combination for endometriosis: copaiba + frankincense + helichrysum. More details on the resources section (6)
  • I also have one remark in this essential oils thing. In my research I found some studies and articles about the potential harmful and estrogenic effect of lavander and tea tree oil essential oils. Please, be very careful with this two. One of the studies I am talking about is in the resources section at (7).

For the moment, that’s all I wanted to tell you about copaiba oil, which, by the way, has a lot of other benefits (reduces pain, anxiety, prevents all sort of infections etc. more in the resources (8)).

I hope you find this information useful and to help you in all this journey of managing endometriosis or other similar conditions.
