"Endometriosis is like a hole in the roof through which water flows. Water causes destruction in the building. Fixing this issue requires both removal of damage and sealing the roof to prevent further damage. Surgical treatment can be compared to repairing these damages, while nutritional therapy to sealing the roof. Both are necessary."Jan Olek, gynecologist
What is the relation between nutrition with endometriosis?
In an article describing the causes of endometriosis you can read that the major factor determines the development of the disease is the impairment of the immune system. It results the development of lesions of endometriosis from the reversed mentrual blood.
The immune system will be able to deal better with the cells of endometrium situated in a wrong place by preventing the development of endometriosis lesions. In this way, we limit the risk of diseas recurrence.
How does it happen that these mechanisms are beeing impaired? First of all, there are environmental factors that have negative impact:
- food (toxins, pesticides, preservatives, GMO, sugar, gluten, casein and other),
- air pollution, chemicals, plastics, water pollution.
They all lead to intestinal dysbiosis.
The intestine is a tube lined with the mucous membrane of more than 7 meters lenght from the mouth cavity to the anus, forming a barrier between the outside world and the blood circulation system. The intestinal surface area is approximately 300 m long 2 </ sup>, roughly the size of the tennis court. Mucosal mucosa of intestine hosts 10 billion cells producing antibodies per meter of the intestine (80% of all immune system cells), making the intestine the largest organ of the immune system.
There is about 2 kg of living intestinal bacteria in the intestine that fulfil a salutary function in our body. They:
- produce large amounts of vitamins B and K,
- protect us from pathogenic bacteria, fungi and parasites,
- help digest food, mainly protein,
- the bacteria in contact with the mucous membrane create a defense shield for our body.
Intestinal dysbiosis is the impaired balance between good bacterial flora in the intestine and other bacteria, fungi and parasites, potentially pathogenic ones. Dysbiosis is a major cause of immune system impairment.
How to cure intestinal dysbiosis?
Changing the diet into the proper one eliminates intestinal dysbiosis and food intolerance, which results in a significant improvement of the condition of the immune system.
The immune system will be able to deal better with cells of endometrium situated in the wrong place by preventing the development of endometriosis lesions. In this way, we limit the risk of disease recurrence.
