Diet and Nutrition for Endometriosis.
While dietary changes are not a cure for endometriosis, learning how your body reacts to foods can help you control your endometriosis symptoms. Avoiding processed foods, eating fresh, organic produce, and avoiding sugar, wheat gluten, soy, and/or dairy products are all examples of dietary changes that may reduce stress on your body and possibly decrease some endometriosis symptoms. Many women reported successful symptom management when on an anti-inflammatory diet, others by avoiding wheat gluten and dairy products. Each of us respond differently to nutritional changes, therefore, working with a healthcare practitioner knowledgeable in diet and nutrition can help you with this process.

- An older book, but a worthwhile read: Endometriosis A Key to Healing Through Nutrition by Dian Shepperson Mills MA and Michael Vernon PhD HCLD, 1999 and 2004.
While the board of the Greater Seattle Endometriosis Research Center does not endorse a particular practitioner we do understand the importance of quality care. Therefore, we have compiled a list of medical offices and/or practitioners from our members recommendation. It is important you research your physicians and healthcare providers, interview, and choose the best healthcare provider for your care based on your own opinion and financial situation.
