Endometriosis is the growing of the uterine wall outside the uterine cavity. This can be extremely painful for women and adolescent girls and can cause high levels of infertility. Many women suffering from endometriosis find that the condition can be controlled or even stopped with special eating changes.
This was the case with Angela Kawakimi. From a young age, Angela admits she did not have a great diet. However, she has managed her endometriosis as well as her overall health for many years by eating more whole foods. She started by giving up Gluten and progressed to a mostly whole food diet. Angela’s Story has become an inspiration for many women with the condition. There are a variety of dietary measures that may help with endometriosis.
Eat More Salad
Salads have a lot of good things in them. Salads with dark green lettuce like spinach, kale, or green leaf lettuce are the best. Lettuce is a recommended food for endometriosis. These have a lot more vitamin that can help prevent and reduce inflammation. Inflammation and swelling make the condition worse. Healthy salads are also a great way to lose weight. Obesity also contributes to endometriosis. Salads are a great way to control weight while giving the body more vitamins. And it’s definitely one of the main eating changes women should consider in managing endometriosis.
Cut Out Gluten
Cutting out gluten may help reduce inflammation. This helps with the pain that happens during periods. This will probably not cure the condition, but it may help manage pain without medication. Replace gluten with healthy carbohydrates and starches like sweet potatoes and brown rice. Cutting out overprocessed forms of gluten may also help to lose weight.
