Fiber for Endometriosis
Last updated: September 2022
Estrogen is a hormone in our body that supports many vital functions. That said, having too much isn’t always a good thing.
Excess estrogen can aggravate endometriosis symptoms such as cramping. We already have enough of that. We don’t need anything that will make it worse.
A simple way to help remove excess estrogen from your body is to get adequate fiber in your diet.
Good sources of fiber include:
- Beans and legumes
- Chia seeds
- Natural fiber supplements
One of my favorite ways to get a good boost of fiber is in a smoothie. I’ll include spinach, berries, and chia seeds. It’s delicious, fiber-rich, and has antioxidants that help reduce inflammation.
That’s a win-win-win! Of course, the bonus to getting adequate fiber is that it helps you with going to the bathroom.
