What to Avoid

As we mentioned in previous articles, endometriosis growing somewhere else other than the endometrium also reacts to hormonal signals of the monthly menstrual cycle, building up tissue, breaking it, and eliminating it through the menstrual period. In order to reduce symptoms of endometriosis during menstrual cycle, it is wise to reduce intake of the following.

1. Reduce intake of unhealthy fat and trans fat
Since the liver helps in protein synthesis and fat metabolism, over-abundance of fat and trans fat causes an over production of certain hormones in protagslandins family resulting in over-activity of uterus muscles during the menstrual cycle causing endometriosis menstrual cramps.

2. Avoid sugar
Intake of sugar not only causes the imbalance of blood sugar in the bloodstream, but it also depletes the level of B vitamin complex and chromium leading to diabetes and chronic fatigue. Study shows that sugar levels have a direct influence on levels of adrenaline, high levels of sugar causes a blockage effect on progesterone resulting in severe menstrual symptoms.

3. Avoid salt
High levels of salt increases the risk of hypertension and fluid retention causing bloating and other symptoms of menstrual cramps for women with endometriosis.

4. Cut down intake of caffeine
Caffeine contains high levels of xanthines that not only causes tension of the nervous system but also increases anxiety, aggravates insomnia, blood pressure, as well as depleting vitamins and minerals in the body resulting in an elevation of other symptoms of the endometriosis menstrual cycle.

5. Reduce intake of alcohol
Excessive alcohol drinking not only does harm to the liver, but it also increases muscle contraction in the uterus and depletes some essential vitamins and minerals in the body. This results in uncontrolled endometriosis menstrual cramps.

Since endometriosis is treatable and manageable by natural remedies and self help course, if you have endometroisis, please look at the bright side.
