About this Treatment
Theresa Throst Ernährungsberatung
Nicole R. Heinze
A vegan diet is based on purely plant-based foods. In addition to the elimination of meat and fish in the vegetarian diet, all animal components are consistently avoided here, including eggs and dairy products.
On the one hand, dairy products are good suppliers of calcium (see Calcium) and thus a sensible component of the diet for endometriosis (see Vegetarian diet). On the other hand, animal fats are fundamentally unhealthy, not least because of their pro-inflammatory properties (see anti-inflammatory diet). However, choosing a vegan lifestyle can also make sense from other points of view.
A kind FemXX reminder: Any restrictions should be in proportion to the possible health improvement. If you find it really difficult to give up certain foods, and at the same time are unsure about the positive effect of your diet on your Endo, consider consulting your doctor or nutrition coach again. Endo-fighters often have to live under enough restrictions, adding another one should not be done without reason!
