Using diet to help endometriosis is about consuming foods that will help to reduce pain and inflammation. It's also about eating foods that will 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
Endometriosis is an inflammatory disease
Having the knowledge which foods can cause problems by triggering inflammation and making 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.
The way we perceive pain is through the chemical pathways produced by prostaglandins, and eating the wrong foods will increase the bad prostaglandins and this can lead to increased 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.
There is also 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
