Dietary Changes Required for Endometriosis

There are a few more if you really want to go hard core… here are a few of my favorites.

  • Eat organic, grass fed meat. Avoid processed and factory-farmed meats, because they contain growth hormones which will make the problems worse. Iron is essential, so beef must be part of the diet. Iron supplements are less safe and they are poorly absorbed.
  • Avoid refined white sugar, white flour, and white rice. The chlorination process used to bleach foods will leave some dioxin residues in the food, because dioxins are always a by-product of chlorine. The (white) refined variants of these foods are very inflammatory. Read the ingredients and purchase “evaporated cane juice” for sugar. Use only brown rice and whole wheat flour, and do not use any carbohydrates that are not completely homemade.
  • Honey is actually an anti-inflammatory sweetener, so it too is recommended. It is the ideal sweetener whenever it is a viable option.
  • Do not use homogenized milk, ever. It is one of the most inflammatory food items available. If milk is needed, purchase non-homogenized milk from a health food store.
  • Avoid all soy products. Soy contains phytoestrogens, which are compounds that mimic oestrogen in the body. They can cause major hormone instability, which will worsen the endometriosis.
  • Reduce the intake of processed foods. Virtually all of the chemical additives are highly inflammatory to the body.
  • Dioxins can also be found in municipal drinking water, because it contains chlorine. Women with endometriosis should purchase spring water with an alkaline pH. A shower filter that removes chlorine is prudent, because inhaled chlorine vapours are extremely inflammatory.

Curing endometriosis is a process of providing the body with the nutrients that it needs to heal the liver, while keeping inflammation low, and flushing any toxins out of the body. We furthermore recommend the following supplement program for endometriosis sufferers.
