Dietary Recomendations for Endometriosis
EndometriosisIf you suffer from terrible premenstrual syndrome, lower back pain, abnormal bleeding, depression, painful sex and heavy period, suspect endometriosis. An estimated 5 million American women suffer from endometriosis. If you have more that on e symptom of endometriosis, consult your doctor. 30% of all infertility women have endometriosis. Women with endometriosis should be particularly vigilant about increasing their consumption of kelp and wheat germ.
Endometriosis has been linked to thyroid dysfunction and kelp is particularly good for thyroid problems. The vitamin E in wheat germ improves the healing of scar tissue caused by internal endometrial bleeding. Women who suspect endometriosis should cut down on their yeast consumption, as yeast overgrowth has been recently implicated in endometriosis. Also, since yeast thrives on sugar, strictly avoid sugar, as well as any artificial sweeteners and dairy, though yogurt can be helpful for this problem. In general, women with endometriosis should stick to a high-fiber, vegetarian based diet. Particularly, the elimination of fats from animal sources such as meat and dairy products is beneficial. Women with endometriosis should also particularly avoid caffeine and salt and should indulge in antioxidants such as sweet potatoes, yams, apricots, cantaloupes, carrots, spinach and broccoli, whole grains and beans for necessary B vitamins, and citrus fruits for bioflavonoids and natural vitamin C.
