Endometriosis is a disorder in which the tissue that forms the lining of the uterus grows outside of the uterine cavity. The lining of the uterus is called the endometrium. Endometriosis occurs when the endometrium grows on the ovaries, bowel, and tissues lining the pelvis.
Pelvic pain, abnormal periods and infertility are the common symptoms of endometriosis.
It is also important to note that most women afflicted with the challenge of endometriosis unknowingly endanger themselves the more by consuming some foods that worsen the condition. 10 of such foods are explained below;
- Red Meat
According to new research, consumption of red meat can increase the risk of endometriosis by more than 80%. You need to stop ham (pork that has been preserved through salting, smoking, or wet curing) particularly as it has food additive of sodium nitrate which is highly toxic and can interfere with functioning of your reproductive system.
- Trans Fats
Women whose diets are rich in foods containing Omega-3 oils might be less likely to develop endometriosis, while those whose diets are heavily laden with trans fats might be more likely to develop the debilitating condition, new research published suggests. Doughnuts, cookies, crackers, muffins, pies and cakes are examples of foods that may contain trans fat. Limit how frequently you eat them. Limit commercially fried foods and baked goods made with shortening or partially hydrogenated vegetable oils.
- Wheat Flour Foods
Wheat flour foods including white bread, pasta, pastry, cakes are linked to obesity. In a recent study, it has been established that childhood obesity could be precursors to endometriosis. Obese women also have risk of endometrial cancer. Avoiding these foods improves overall health of your body and also reduce the risk of endometriosis.
- Processed Foods
All processed foods come with additives, preservatives and chemical flavours that stimulate the growth of bad prostaglandins (prostaglandins are a group of lipids made at sites of tissue damage or infection that are involved in dealing with injury and illness. They control processes such as inflammation, blood flow, the formation of blood clots and the induction of labour). Eliminating these foods from your menu reduces the symptoms of endometriosis considerably.
- Refined Sugar
All the food items prepared from refined sugar will cause acidic environment within your body. Excessive amounts of acids are not at all good as they deplete oxygen, calcium and other minerals from your body. It is also an ideal ground for the growth of bacteria and virus. This environment is also responsible for endometriosis.
Wheat contains gluten and those who are sensitive to gluten have chances of suffering with increased symptoms of endometriosis. Products containing wheat and gluten should be avoided or limited. Research also proved that those women who take gluten-free diet regularly will get complete relief from endometrial pain.
- Soy products
Cut out soy milk and soy products from your diet. Soy products contain phyto-estrogens which increases estrogen levels in your body. As you keep on adding soy products into your body, estrogen levels also keep increasing and therefore, the problem of endometriosis worsens.
The consumption of caffeine increases estrogen levels in your body. Caffeine also causes undesirable effects on other body organs. Caffeine will interfere with liver functioning by reducing its ability to detoxify and eliminate excess estrogen. Caffeine also interferes with the production of progesterone, which counteracts the adverse effects of estrogen.
Liver is responsible for expelling excess estrogen from the body. Consumption of alcohol puts an excessive burden on the liver and thereby hinders its capacity of eliminating the estrogen from your body.
- Dairy products
Limiting the consumption of dairy products is quite essential. Dairy products contain saturated fats which put the burden on the liver and as a consequence the estrogen levels in the body increases.
Your endometriosis diet plan, therefore, is twin fold of adding anti inflammatory, immunity boosting, energy raising foods and estrogen reducing foods in your menu while eliminating the foods that stimulate production of estrogen from your menu.
In conclusion, the battle against endometriosis is all about knowing what to eat and what not to eat and strictly following it in your diet menu. By embracing new food habits, you are essentially taking the situation into your control rather than simply wishing recovery from endometriosis.
The change in your approach is nothing more than tuning to the requirements of your body and giving what your body really wants. This is the only way you can help your body to recover on its own from the years long problem of endometriosis completely and creating an ideal environment. Once an ideal environment for the growth of a new life is created, getting pregnant is quite going to be natural.
The Kit will help you treat endometriosis naturally without any side effect.
