Hi, yes there are natural and Ayurvedic remedies that can help.

Thank you for your question. Adenomyosis can be triggered postpartum. Supporting through an anti-inflammatory diet and anti-inflammatory herbs can be helpful.
Adenomyosis is driven by elevated Lipopolysaccharides which elevates cytokines and histamine.  While I have successfully worked with this with botanical medicine, I personally have never used Ayurvedic medicine specifically. 
Yes, it can help. Also, homeopathy.
First, have your blood checked with your physician for deficiencies in magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, vitamins B1, B12 and vitamin D3, and hemoglobin, hematocrit, and platelets before doing any treatment.
Ayurvedic medicine is not my forte. But naturopathic medicine is a good option.

I do not have any personal experience using Ayurvedic medicine, only western botanicals and Chinese herbs. With that being said, Ayurvedic medicine is similar to (not the same as) Chinese medicine, and it could help with the symptoms your wife is experiencing as well as possibly keep her condition from getting worse. I have not personally worked with any patients with adenomyosis or seen any cases from practitioners I know on a personal basis, but I have seen successful cases with endometriosis and uterine fibroids. These two conditions are not the same as adenomyosis, but a similar protocol would be used.
Diet, nutrition, and plant medicines are most appropriate when dealing with serious physical manifestations of a disease or in your wife's case; a disorder. Although there are Ayurvedic plants (aka those found in India) that can help, more local medicinal plants would be better effective.
I don't practice ayurvedic medicine. I suggest you find a naturopathic doctor who specializes in women's healthcare in your state. You can search for a doctor through the national association portal.
I would use highest quality herbal formulas to correct hormonal imbalance.

The real cause could be from environmental toxins from her past or current exposure. Many reasons for hormonal imbalance. Lifestyle is very important, but not always the resolve through nutrition and exercise.

Hope this answers your concern. Life is to be lived abundantly. When the hormones are imbalanced, it really effects happiness!
