What causes pain in endometriosis?

In endometriosis a lot of pain may be due to inflammation around endometrial implants. Immune system employs white cells such as lymphocytes, interleukins and interferons to dump their chemical weapons onto the damaged tissue in order to remove danger and allow the body to heal. This whole process leads to inflammation as your body fights back against something which shouldn’t be there.

Moreover, histamine release around the site triggers more inflammation which may lead to more pain. Histamine is a chemical found in some of the body’s cells – causes many of the symptoms of allergies, such as a runny nose or sneezing. It can be high when there is oestrogen excess which is characteristic for endometriosis.

Adhesions between organs can also pull and tug, leading to stabbing sensations. Moreover, more pain may be triggered by smooth muscle going into spasms and cramps.

If our diet is full of simple carbohydrates, processed foods, sugar, and caffeine, we add more fuel to a fire and increase inflammation which leads to more pain and worsening symptoms.

Diet is not going to heal you from endometriosis but it may help in managing monthly flare ups.

What are the diet principles in managing pain in endometriosis?

The diet which is often mentioned for managing endometriosis is the anti-inflammatory diet. It focuses on removing foods which increase inflammation and adding more foods which are anti-inflammatory. It can help in reducing painful symptoms, improve energy levels and reduce the bloat.
