On January 26th, I posted my Endometriosis diet. My endometrioma was 5.4 cm last November and on Jan 4th, it was 5.8cm. On Jan 22nd, it showed it was 5.1, hence my post on my diet. The fact that it shrunk 0.7cm was already amazing. Today I went for another ultrasound and it was 4.1cm! That’s only since Jan 22nd. It’s only been another 19-20 days and it shrunk again.
To all the women out there suffering from endometriosis and who’s had several rounds of laparoscopy, please start understanding “why” your body keeps producing the same disease over and over and over again. Even after surgery, I’ve heard so many women who said the endo came back the month after. Then why have surgery? The surgery only gets rid of the symptom but does not get rid of the root cause. Your body is telling you that your immune system is down therefore those endo cells can spread!
My mother had cancer before where the doctors said there’s nothing else they can do. My father put her on a strict all organic raw diet with no meat. It’s been over 15 years and she’s healthy. If you don’t feed the diseased cells what it wants to eat, it won’t grow and soon enough, you’ll starve them all away.
I hope that all you women out there suffering from this and listening to your OB/GYN would reconsider that sometimes the doctors don’t know as much as you about your diet. You can ask yourself:
- Do you drink sodas? Diet sodas?
- Do you eat fried foods often?
- Do you eat noodles, pastas and white rice often?
- Pizza? Hamburger? Chicken Nuggets?
- TV dinners?
- Chicken? Beef? Lamb?
- Do you drink coffee? Therefore put sugar or artificial sugar and cream?
All processed foods feed into for endometrioma and endometriosis. This means sodas, refined sugars (coffee, sodas), diet sodas are the worse, chips, pastas, and basically everything up above is a big “NO.” Chicken is okay if it’s organic but eating regular chicken is actually horrible for endo since nowadays all the chickens are shot up in hormones that contributes to endo! So are beef, lamb, and other red meats. To learn more about my endo diet, please read my post on Jan 22, 2011 under “Infertility.”
A new information I also found out is that my husband has normal count of sperm but low motility (mobility). Therefore, not getting pregnant may be a male factor as well. It’s time for me to start him on a special diet! He’s getting tested again at the end of this month since everything changes by the day so we’ll know more about whether his sperm is really low mobility by the end of the month.
