Truth, Theory, or Tall Tale?

causes

Following the “Endo Diet” will relieve your pain and other Endometriosis symptoms.

Theory

The Endo Diet works for many women to alleviate some of their pain and other Endometriosis symptoms; however, it does not work for all women.

What is the Endo Diet?

In a nutshell, you try to reduce or completely exclude the following items from your diet:

  • Wheat
  • Red meat and ham
  • Refined sugars (including juices and sodas)
  • Caffeine
  • Chocolate
  • Dairy
  • Alcohol
  • Some women cut out eggs (I still eat them)

To read more on why to try to cut out these items, please click here.

I try my hardest to follow this diet and have been pain free since July, 2014.  BUT…I had my diagnostic and excision surgery on June 30, 2014; altered my diet in July, 2014; began my Lupon Depot injections in August, 2014; ended my Lupron Depot injections in January, 2015; and have been on continuous birth control since January, 2015.  I also drink a nightly anti-inflammatory tea before bed.  I truly believe that I am pain free because of the combination of these treatments and dietary changes.

I’d love to hear if you follow the Endo Diet and how your pain and symptoms have been since starting it.  Drop me a comment below?
