1. Endometriosis Natural Treatment Diet
Everyone’s body is different and reacts differently.
By starting out with a few adjustments to your diet, one can monitor and adjust accordingly.
This diet has helped thousands of women with endometriosis - I'm always amazed at how much a diet can help when I get messages & emails from women who have had transformational results.
What Is The Endometriosis Treatment Diet?
The endometriosis diet consists of any and all foods that reduce inflammation.
Endometriosis is an inflammation-driven condition. The more inflammation, the worse you feel.
So, stick with any foods that may positively affect inflammation. Primarily plant-based and full of minerals and vitamins.
- Whole grains
- Dark leafy greens
How To Successfully Start The Endometriosis Diet?
- Begin by taking an inventory of your current diet. Are you eating foods that increase inflammation? Are you eating gluten? Are you eating dairy?
- Make small changes by adding one recommended food each week (or getting rid of one food). Start off with the MAIN culprits. For 1-2 weeks, remove gluten. For the next 1-2 weeks, remove dairy. And continue on that way.
- Keep a journal on how your body responds to different foods. Remember, every woman's body is different. Some women may be able to tolerate nuts. Other women may not. Make note of how you feel.
2. Using A Healing Personal Moisturizer
Women dealing with endometriosis may experience vaginal dryness and pain during sex.
Our natural vegan lubricant will help make your intimate moments less painful.
But, there's more to it than that:
You probably apply face lotion every day, huh?
Or put on lip balm to ensure you don't have dry lips?
By regularly using a "personal moisturizer" that's full of nutrients for your vaginal skin, you can feel better and have reduced local inflammation.
Why Will This Help My Endometriosis?
Adding a personal moisturizer will help with the discomfort and dryness you may experience during sex.
Reconnect with your partner and enjoy sex again!
With the personal moisturizer that you use daily (outside of sex), you'll be nourishing your vaginal skin, which can reduce symptoms of endometriosis.
How Often To Apply It?
Think about face lotion... How often do you apply it?
Probably once or twice per day - maybe in the morning and then after you get out of the shower.
It's the same with the personal moisturizer. You can apply it as often as you'd like, but most women apply it 1-2 times per day.
3. Turmeric Can Help Reduce Inflammation
Turmeric supplements are available as capsules. The spice is often found in teas and may be added to meals.
Why Will This Help My Endometriosis?
Turmeric has as an active compound called curcumin which helps reduce inflammation.
How Much Turmeric Should I Take?
The recommended dosage of turmeric varies depending on the form.
There are 3 different types of forms that all have different dosages (all depending on how much curcumin is in it:
- Cut root
- Fluid extract.
How Can Reducing Inflammation Help My Fertility?
According to Endometriosis News:
"Higher fluid volume and altered activity and levels of immune cells have been reported in this disorder. Release of hormones such as estradiol and progesterone, as well as pro-inflammatory molecules called cytokines — such as interleukin (IL)-1, IL-6, and IL-8, and TNF-alpha — favors endometriosis development and progression."
By reducing inflammation the embryo will be able to attach itself better.
4. Practicing Mindfulness & Reducing Stress
We all encounter stress in our lives, but it's important to find ways to help manage stress to improve your health.
Finding ways to help reduce your everyday stress levels by scheduling self-care time may help you eliminate some of your discomfort and pain.
What Sort Of Mindfulness Should I Do?
Much of our stress comes from being busy. Taking a moment each day to relax is a great starting point.
Learn to say "NO" to others sometimes so you can focus on yourself.
Meditation is a great start too. No, you do not have to sit on the floor with arms out and hum. Start your day out with a quiet moment before everyone else in your house begins to stir for the day. Take a casual walk and enjoy the beauty of nature.
The goal.....slow down, relax and clear your mind to get rid of the stressors for a moment.
