Nutritional Therapy uses food, and sometimes nutritional supplements, to support processes in the body with the aim of improving health. In endometriosis inflammation is major factor which can contribute to women’s experience of pain. Hormonal regulation is also very important in trying to reduce endometriosis symptoms.
How can Nutritional Therapy help with endometriosis?
A Nutritional Therapy consultation looks at:
- Your diet, and how your food choices and eating pattern may be impacting on your health
- Nutrients needed to support hormonal pathways
- An anti-inflammatory eating pattern: A research review (Thomas 2013) highlighted benefits for women with endometriosis from diets which include omega 3 fatty acids and higher levels of anti-oxidants in foods.
- Practical ways of implementing dietary advice so that you can continue to enjoy your food.
