What is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus. This tissue, known as endometrial implants, can be found on organs such as the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and pelvic lining. During the menstrual cycle, these implants respond to hormonal changes, causing inflammation, pain, and the formation of scar tissue.

Check out this recipe by our Nutritionist, Julie Gough, that has been designed to help nourish the body and support the immune system and reduce the inflammatory response.

The typical anti-inflammatory diet emphasises fruits, vegetables, lean protein, nuts, seeds and healthy fats and restricts processed foods, sugar, dairy and gluten.
