Nutrition: Endometriosis

Post by Dr Amir Iqbal Lone on Monday, September 26, 2022

First slide

While dealing with endometriosis we need to target the inflammation caused and high oestrogen levels. Food is a very good treatment for both.

  • Fibre from whole grains, fruits, legumes and vegetables helps throw out excess oestrogen via the stools.
  • Healthy fats like omega 3 are very effective in controlling inflammation. Fatty fish like salmon, sardines, walnuts, chia seeds are rich sources of omega -3
  • Monounsaturated fats found in almonds, peanut, safflower oils all help fight inflammation.
  • Turmeric has potent anti-inflammatory properties that will help reduce symptoms.
  • Magnesium found in green leafy vegetables, legumes, pumpkin seeds is a muscle relaxant that will help with cramps.
  • Gluten free grains like brown rice, millets, corn may help alleviate the symptoms.
  • Dairy free diets have shown some benefits but should not be followed for more than a month.
