Diet and nutrition as a means of managing not only endometriosis, but as an overall health benefit, has been widely adopted through the patient community. To that end, women and girls with endometriosis suffer from many varied food intolerances and can find their symptoms exacerbated by seemingly innocuous food choices.

In the cursory sense, a diet largely comprised of an abundance of lean, low fat proteins, an intake of fresh fruits and vegetables without processing, low or no sodium choices, low sugars and foods which do not include “sinful” items such as high fructose corn syrups and other stabilizers have all been recommended. One helpful resource to further elaborate on this topic is Dian Shepperson Mills' book, “Endometriosis: Healing through Nutrition.” Over time, patients have experienced a shift and decrease in symptoms related to impurities, toxicities, environmental exposures and the like that can all wreak havoc on hormonal and immune responses through food choices. The dietary approach may also work well to alleviate associated digestive/GI symptoms.

Except these diets below are the diets that have been proven useful on endometriosis patients by many clinic cases.

Vegetables and Flaxseeds

There is some evidence that a group of plant chemicals called flavones may inhibit aromatase, the enzyme that converts androgens to estrogens. Good food sources of flavones are celery and parsley.

Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, Brussels sprouts, and so on, contain compounds called indoles, which appear to improve estrogen metabolism.


Flaxseeds are high in lignans and fiber, which have been found to be beneficial for estrogen-related conditions.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 fatty acids are found in fish such as salmon, mackerel, sardines, and anchovies. They are also available in fish oil capsules, which may be the preferable form because good brands contain minimal amounts of PCBs and dioxins.

Several studies have found that omega-3 fatty acids may be beneficial for people with endometriosis. For example, a study by the University of Western Ontario found that fish oil containing two specific compounds, EPA and DHA, can relieve pain by decreasing levels of an inflammatory chemical called prostaglandin E2. Researchers also found that fish oil could slow the growth of endometrial tissue.

Ginger Tea

Ginger tea may relieve the nausea that can occur with endometriosis. Ginger tea is another natural material to deal with infections as well as symptoms caused by endometriosis because of the antifungal properties presented in it.

However, what you should keep in mind is that these diets are only useful for alleviating symptoms of endometriosis, they can't kill the bacterial of it, thus endometriosis couldn't cured by them. But you could combining these diets with taking medicines, like herbal medicine”fuyan pill”. It is made from natural herbs, and has similar functions with antibiotics; you could take it as supplement for a long time without any side effects. It could not only eliminate all symptoms of endometriosis, but also could cure endometriosis within several months.
