Endometriosis Diet - can bring significant benefits
November 26, 2012
There is a popular catch phrase that we are what we eat. This phrase could be an epigraph to the diet for endometriosis
Endometriosis - a serious problem with serious consequences
Because the main "culprits" of the disease - the female sex hormones estrogen produced in the body from animal fats.
How is endometriosis
Endometriosis - a condition in which the various organs and tissues of the developing areas of the mucous membrane of the uterus (the endometrium). Underlying diseases are disorders of the hormonal and immune systems. Hormonal disorders occur due to the large number of female hormones estrogen and progesterone deficiency
Progesterone - norm and pathology
, Which leads to uncontrolled proliferation of endometrial and undesired prolonged rejection, accompanied by bleeding. Thus endometrial cells fall into other organs and tissues, there forming portions endometriosis.
Violations by the immune system are manifested in the fact that the immune system allows the "intruders" - free of endometrial cells to proliferate in other tissues. Normally this should not be: the immune cells destroy foreign tissue for these cells.
Restoring hormonal balance with the help of power
The main challenges in this diet are two: to suppress the synthesis of estrogens and strengthen the immune system. It is known that estrogens are steroid hormones that are produced in the body fat of animal origin. So you can completely eliminate these fats from the diet? It is impossible, because a small percentage of fat contained even in the lean meat. Furthermore, animal fats in a small amount required by the body for proper metabolism. Therefore, in the diet should adhere to the golden mean: the flesh of animals is possible, but only low-fat and a small amount, not more than 200 grams per day. But, moreover, animal proteins contained in dairy products, eggs and fish.
Eating fish has its own nuances: low-fat sea fish can be eaten without restriction. But today, found that for proper metabolism and beneficial fatty sea fish - it contains polyunsaturated fatty acids improve metabolic processes, including a positive influence on the synthesis of hormones. Therefore, once a week, a small amount of oily sea fish is recommended to include in the diet.
To normalize hormonal levels also need to make up for the missing amount of progesterone in the body. It turns out that it is possible to plant with progestogen (progesterone analogous) activity include, for example, raspberries.
But that is not enough, because the hormones can be restored only if the proper metabolism, and this requires carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, that is all that is found in vegetables, fruits, cereals.
How to strengthen the immune system by means of power
You can strengthen the immune system by eating enough protein (animal and plant), because the immune cells, as well as all the other cells in our body are made up of proteins. There will be an adequate supply of protein, immunity decreases. The bulk of the protein should come from animal food - only animal proteins contain all the essential amino acids, which later, as the building blocks of cells will be built.
For proper metabolism and essential vitamins and minerals (vegetables, fruits, juices). For proper implementation of the biochemical processes involved in metabolism
Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting
, You need to eat carbohydrates, but not digestible (sweets and baking) and complex carbohydrates, which are found in vegetables, cereals, whole grain bread.
To this food has benefited, dishes need to be steamed, boiled or stewed, and some fruits and vegetables consumed raw. Matters and diet: even small amounts of food intake promotes proper metabolism.
