If you know 10 women chances are you know someone who has endometriosis (endo) because it effects 1 in 10 women. The symptoms of endo vary among women but can include exhaustion, heavy and painful periods, chronic pain, bowel problems such as abdominal pain, diarrhoea, constipation or bloating and fertility difficulties.
As the symptoms are so variable the average woman suffers for 7 to 10 years before being diagnosed! Unfortunately there is no cure for endo.
If you have endo you’re probably desperate to find a diet that can help. If you’ve turned to doctor google, (and I know you have – you’re only human), then by now you’re probably confused and facing a long list of fad restrictive diets cutting out a whole lot of healthy delicious foods.
Despite miracle diet cures flooding the internet unfortunately endo cannot be cured by diet. Diet changes can however help you manage your symptoms and has even been shown to reduce the progression of the condition. The fact is there’s not one diet to treat or cure endo, but there are a number of strategies to help improve bowel symptoms, energy levels, inflammation and improve your overall wellbeing.
