Diets with endo

Tried going sugar free, caffeine free and dairy free which has helped I still have flare ups but not so bad. Problem being the lack of dairy is affecting my arthritis. I’m aching from head to foot. Any suggestions?

  1. That's got to be really frustrating to have your arthritis flare up after eliminating all of those food groups. Have you talked to your doctor about the pain you're experiencing? I'm wondering if maybe they can suggest a supplement to help with the lack of dairy you are intaking now or something else for pain management. I would definitely mention it to your physician to see what they think. I am going to link an article we have on supplements for you to check out in the meantime: https://endometriosis.net/living/supplements-pain. I really hope that helps! Please keep us posted on how you're doing and what you end up doing. We're here for you ! 💛 Kayleigh, Endometriosis.net team

  2. I’m sorry you’re suffering from arthritis flare-ups. It sounds very painful. When I cut dairy, my dietician told me to get my calcium from green leafy veggies like spinach, kale, broccoli and others. There are also some types of fish, like sardines, that are packed with calcium.

    And whenever I need to relieve any joint pain, I find that a bath with epsom salts helps enormously.

    I hope this helps. - Jessie (team member)

    1. thanks Jessie

  3. so sorry you are dealing with arthritis flare ups. I know how frustrating that may be. We seem to get one flare up under control and then another one begins again! I get achy bones and joints often, when I do- my weighted blanket always feels good on my body. As for foods and things to replace dairy- my doctor had told me -seeds like chia seeds, sardines and salmon, beans or lentils, nuts like almonds, leafy greens like spinach/kale, even non dairy milks like almond milk. Hoping you find this helpful and do find some relief from these flare ups! Sending you hugs. Do keep us posted on how you are doing <3 -Kimberli (team member)
