The Endo Diet is supposed to help reduce the inflammation caused by endometriosis. Some people who've had severe, disabling symptoms have been essentially healed with this diet.
The guidelines for the Endo Diet are:
-no red meat
-no gluten (wheat, barley, rye)
- no fried foods
Whole grains: brown rice, millet, quinoa, etc
Peas & Beans
Seeds & Nuts
Fruits and Vegetables
Organic Vegetarian-Fed Chicken
Drinks lots of water.
Choose organic foods whenever possible.
Take omega-3 fatty acid supplements.
Drink a cup or two of red raspberry leaf tea daily to relieve cramps.
Drink decaf organic green tea to protect against the toxic effects of dioxins.
Try noni juice. It contains a natural anti-inflammatory enzymes that reduce swelling & inflammation.
Try the herb dong quai, three to four grams daily, for its anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic effects.
Use cold-pressed, virgin coconut oil which is known for being anti-viral, antibacterial and anti-fungal.
