Endometriosis Diet

Endometriosis Diet

When it comes to a diet for endometriosis, it means choosing a diet that will contribute significantly to the reduction of pain and inflammation.

The goal of the diet plan is to improve the insulin response and the overall symptoms of endometriosis, through the combination of anti-inflammatory, detoxifying and hormone-free foods, known to be the fuel that advances the disease.

What is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is the presence of endometrium and endometrial stroma outside the uterine cavity in other areas of the female body, usually in the pelvis.

This disease can affect women from the first menstruation and exceptionally even before the first menstrual cycle in childhood, usually from the time of her first period to menopause, although after age 40 the growth of endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity seems slower. .

The disease develops regardless of whether or not you have had pregnancies even if after pregnancies, if present already before pregnancy, it seems to have a more accelerated growth. Its presence is independent of race and socio-economic status. Endometriosis can sometimes persist after menopause or as a result of hormones taken for menopause symptoms (which can cause endometriosis to continue).

At present, the number of women with endometriosis is estimated to be close to 10% of those of reproductive age. But, it is important to note that these are estimates only, and that these statistics can vary widely.

Approximately 30% to 40% of women with endometriosis are sterile, with the disease being one of the top three causes of female infertility. Some women, for example, don’t discover their endometriosis until they have a hard time getting pregnant.

Italian Endometriosis Center

The Italian Endometriosis Center is the first specific center born in Europe for this disease. The Center deals with the diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis and facilitates pregnancy with specific protocols for fertilization, all with the most modern technologies.

Support research

Scientific research carried out by the Italian Endometriosis Foundation has made it possible to discover the congenital origin of endometriosis and that the pollutants cause the alteration in the embryo responsible for the dislocation of endometrial cells. The Foundation also carried out a study on an animal model that demonstrates for the first time the link between endometriosis and the ovarian reserve which is often decreased in these patients, leading to infertility and / or premature menopause problems.
