Diet Chart For Adenomyosis

About Diet Chart Food Items To Limit Do's And Dont's Food Items You Can Easily Consume



Although Adenomyosis disease has been detected in adolescents too, it generally occurs among women when they are between 35 and 55 years of age. It happens when the endometrium cells grow inside the inner tissue walls of the uterus. The muscular wall of the uterus gets thick or enlarged. Women suffering from adenomyosis can cause difficulty in getting pregnant or sustaining its pregnancy. If the patient is kept on a right diet then it will help her in fast recovery.

Adenomyosis diet should exclude the following:

  1. Do not consume alcohol, coffee, and cigarettes. It will affect vascular contraction resulting in abnormal menstrual periods.
  2. The patient should avoid too sweet or salty food and eat less cold food.
  3. Do not consume acidic food such as rice vinegar, pickles, cherry, jujube, mango, apricot, plum, and lemon.
  4. Do not eat spicy food like chili, pepper, garlic, and onion. Such type of food will intensify the pelvic congestion and inflammation.

Adenomyosis diet should include the following:

  1. In daily menu include milk product, one cup berries, three servings of salads with fruits and vegetables, whole grain cereals and one tablespoon of olive oil.
  2. Drink at least 1.5-liter water every day. You can also drink raspberry juice or orange juice.
  3. To improve your immune system, consume plenty of protein both from vegetables and Animals.
  4. To maintain normal metabolism rate for your body eat food rich in carbohydrate, consume fruits and vegetables rich in minerals and vitamins.
  5. Take food rich in omega-3 fatty acids like fish oil, pumpkin seeds, and walnuts.
