Endometriosis diet advice 

The endometriosis diet is about consuming foods that will enrich and nourish you; its about foods that will support your body, balance your system, and provide a bed-rock to support your healing.

'The fork is the most powerful tool to change your health and the planet; food is the most powerful medicine to heal chronic illness' - Dr Mark Hyman MD

Having the knowledge of which foods can cause problems by triggering inflammation and make your symptoms worse will help you to avoid this issue.  There are many foods that can cause inflammation and this will put your body under additional stress.  This added stress can escalate to affect your stress hormones and in-turn will make your symptoms worse with increased perception of pain.

The way we perceive pain is through the chemical pathway caused by prostaglandins, and eating the wrong foods will increase the bad prostaglandins and in-turn will increase levels of pain.  Also, increased levels of inflammatory prostaglandins correlate to the amount of menstrual pain experienced.

To help you understand the various issues around diet, inflammation, and possible harmful foods the following articles should help shed some light.

You will also find advice about  various helpful supplements which are of benefit for certain symptoms of endometriosis. There are particular supplements that can really help with the inflammation of endometriosis, while others can help to support your immune system.

'Before I changed my diet, life was one long round of pain meds, continuously going to the doctor with pretty regular trips to ER because of the intense pain. Well that's all in the past now and I can only say again, thank you so much.'   -  Cheryl, Arizon

'I kept meaning to write and say thank you. Cutting wheat, dairy, and sugar out of my diet (about 80% of the time is all I can manage) has made a huge difference to my well-being already.

You might also like to add that as well as the new diet alleviating my stomach cramps and pain, I lost weight, stopped bloating, and my lower back symptoms disappeared (provided I stick to no meat/dairy/wheat/sugar of course)!' - Rochelle, Australia
