Endometriosis is a condition in which tissue that is similar to the lining of the womb is found outside of the womb. During the menstrual process, some of these cells that form the abnormal tissue growth can be expelled from the body and up continuing their cycle elsewhere in the body such as the ovaries, fallopian tubes, abdomen or bowel. This can produce a host of different symptoms including uterus pain, low back pain, pelvic pain, excessive bleeding, extremely painful period pain, nausea, vomiting, bloating and constipation to name a few.
1️⃣ – : Endo is an inflammatory condition so focusing on an anti-inflammatory diet can be a great supporting method to reduce pain and inflammation. Base your diet on fruits, vegetables, good quality protein, essential fats, oily fish, wholegrains & legumes and reduce processed foods, saturated fats & refined sugars.
2️⃣ : Endo is driven by the hormone oestrogen so to help clear excess oestrogen its important to promote elimination and regular bowel movements! Bump up your fibre with again lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains & legumes.
3️⃣: (see my previous post for more details!) But again, because Endo is driven by oestrogen we need to support the liver to detox the excess of this hormone. Cruciferous vegetables can work specifically on this pathway. Include a variety of broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, rocket etc in your diet regularly.
There are also lots of supplements and lifestyle factors that can support however as each Endometriosis sufferer is unique in how the condition is portrayed however I would recommend having working with a health professional for a personalised approach ✨
