Hi. I found the endo diet did help and it is basically cutting out certain foods and eating more of others. I got the Recipes for the Endometriosis Diet by Carolyn Levett. It gives a brilliant intro to how different foods are bad for endo and what helps. Some of the recipes are bland, but I change recipes to leave out the bad and to use the recommended ingredients instead.
The book tells you to completely leave out
processed salt and hi-salt products like bouillion
dairy products (I use almond milk instead)
wheat & rye
tea, coffee & alcohol
fried foods & hydrogenated fats
soy milks and products
manufactured meat products
food additives & preservatives, etc
Do eat more
whole grains, peas, beans, and pulses
seeds and nuts
I do recommend the book as it explains why certain foods irritate our pain and gives good substitutes. It is available on Amazon.
I started this diet about 8 months ago when I was in a really bad place and found within a month things had turned around. But I do spoil myself still!! Every so often I do let myself feed on the forbidden food!
Pain still exists but not as bad, and I feel in more control over my own body by doing everything I possibly can.
I hope this is helpful.
