What To Eat With Endometriosis? Check It Out.

Endometriosis is a female health disorder that occurs when cells from the lining of the womb (uterus) grow in other areas of the body. This can lead to pain, irregular bleeding, and problems getting pregnant. While some women with endometriosis remain asymptomatic, others experience dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, non-cyclical pelvic pain, and sub-fertility. Now, new research indicates that patients with endometriosis are also more likely to develop inflammatory bowel disease.

Every month, a woman’s ovaries produce hormones that tell the cells lining the uterus (womb) to swell and get thicker. The body removes these extra cells from the womb lining (endometrium) when you get your period. If these cells (called endometrial cells) implant and grow outside the uterus, endometriosis results. The growths are called endometrial tissue implants. Women with endometriosis typically have tissue implants on the ovaries, bowel, rectum, bladder, and on the lining of the pelvic area. They can occur in other areas of the body, too.

One of the objectives in treating endometriosis is to bring balance to your hormones, and reduce the amount of estrogen in your body (endometriosis is fed by estrogen). Therefore, a diet that helps reduce estrogen and promote an alkaline body, and supports your general health, is going to help those with endometriosis fight back.
