Finding Ways how to Treat My Diagnosis of Adenomyosis

Over the last couple of years I have had to research into how to best manage my diagnosis of Adenomyosis with my hectic lifestyle. Additional to this,  I’m also in the wonderful beginning stages of menopause (best known as perimenopause)

Everyone knows about my natural way of living, especially when it comes to diet. It was refreshing to hear my consultant, GP state that regular exercise and cutting out certain foods are extremely beneficial in supporting this type of condition.

It’s very worrying to read on social media posts to claim they know about the women’s medical conditions and how to best treat them when it comes to foods etc.

 

Now, I eat Paleo for a very good reason, not because I was forced into it, but from a medical side of things I needed to eat ‘clean eating’ and to add to this I have a few intolerances  to wheat, yeast,  gluten, sugar and dairy. By cutting this out of my lifestyle, my IBS, Skin, Asthma, Persistent throat infections, Fatigue, Sleep immediately settled. This also allows me to enjoy the odd meal with gluten etc without compromising my conditions too much. I still eat delicious foods, eat cakes, biscuits, chocolate etc it’s just much healthier with using alternatives.

But more importantly, by making these changes and taking a more holistic approach and trying to avoid a hysterectomy at this moment in time.

With this said….I’m not saying I won’t have to have one in the future or think this isn’t the right choice for other women. Right now, with the needs of my children I have tried other options first.

So if you feel you are in this same predicament, then below Is some suggested foods to take and others to avoid if you wanting a more natural method of helping Adenomyosis
