I may have 1 or 2 nutritional test clients who have been diagnosed with Endometriosis. I’ve been reading up on how people have used dietary changes to address their symptoms. Here is what I have found:

Orthodox treatment includes estrogen-blocking drugs, such as Danocrine, and laser treatment of the endometrium. Unfortunately Danocrine can provoke many side effects, including weight gain, fatigue, dizziness, headaches, acne, increased facial hair, pelvic and back pain, breast problems, cramps, hot flashes, depression, rashes and allergies.
