In Response To: Endometriosis: why does A diet work? Cherchez la DAIRY (^heidi^)
Hi, all - I had endometrosis VERY badly about 12 years ago and the pain was so bad for over half the month that I finally had a complete hysterectomy. I haven't had any problem since, but I didn't know anything about ER or dietary factors. My advice to your wife, Steve, is NOT wait until it's so bad that she becomes desperate for relief. By that time, she won't want to give diet and supplementation the time it requires to rid her body of the problem. You say she isn't convinced that the pain's less severe when she stays away from meat. Try to get her to agree to an experiment - two weeks w/no meat at all and see how she feels, then two weeks w/lots of red meat. If that doesn't convince her, give it time - the pain doesn't go away by itself if you're not doing something about it. It gets MUCH worse. I'd give anything to have had a choice whether or not to have surgery. I thank God I had my children already before I was faced w/that Non-choice. Printout Steve's comments and keep it handy. As the intensity of the pain increases, she'll become more receptive to a lifestyle change via ER. God bless you.
