Do anti-inflammatory diets help reduce endo belly inflammation?

Asked 2 years ago

Hi everyone! I have been struggling with endometriosis ever since I was a teenager. I experience severe bloating and cramping in my belly every month during my period. I am wondering if changing my diet could help provide me some relief from this intense discomfort. I have been looking at the different foods that you can eat in anti-inflammatory diets- Leafy green vegetables, nuts, fatty fish, and fruits. Could this diet potentially help reduce the inflammation from my endo belly?

Hi there! A high-fiber anti-inflammatory diet can help curb the symptoms of endo belly. This means boosting your fiber intake by eating foods such as flaxseeds, whole grains, green leafy vegetables, and fruits to help get rid of the excess estrogen that worsens pain and cramping. You also need omega-3 from fatty fish, nuts, and seeds or plant oils to fight inflammation as well as foods rich in zinc, calcium and magnesium for the cramping. Spices like cinnamon, cloves and turmeric can also ease bloating and cramping.
