Endometriosis is a painful illness in which endometrial tissue develops outside the uterus. Endometriosis affects the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and pelvic lining. It’s rare for endometrial-like tissue to be detected outside the pelvic region.
Thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine, and B12 are B vitamins (Cyanocobalamin). These vitamins may help cure endometriosis. Here are some healing B Vitamins:
- B1, B2, B3, B5, and B6 are antioxidants.
- B1, B6, and B12 reduce inflammation.
- Ovarian hormones need B1, B2, B5, and B6. Low B vitamin consumption may impede egg ripening, decreasing fertility.
- B1, B2, and B6 remove harmful estrogens from liver enzymes (a big bonus for endometriosis).
- B1 nourishes the uterine lining in the reproductive system.
- B2 metabolizes fat, sugar, and protein.
- B3 boosts energy and mental function. It balances glucose and cholesterol.
- B5 helps produce energy and metabolize fat. It supports adrenal function, boosting anti-stress chemicals.
- Progesterone and serotonin need B6. Low progesterone levels cause estrogen dominance and endometriosis. Serotonin deficiency causes depression.
- B6 is a natural diuretic that relieves PMS bloating. It boosts immunity.
- B12 helps oxygenate blood. Energy and nerve health depend on it.
- B vitamins pair well because they are water-soluble, so the body can’t keep them. Daily consumption is required.

- Sardines, tuna, shrimp, herrings, mackerel, cod, and chicken legs contain B12.
Low magnesium status is linked to anxiety, which is commonly given to endometriosis patients. Magnesium reduces stress by boosting the HPAA, which supports hormones, also increasing GABA, a relaxing neurotransmitter in the body.
Magnesium boosts energy and depletes inflammation and oxidative stress, which is common in endometriosis. In conjunction with helping the pain, poor mood or anxiety, migraine, bloating or stomach discomfort, breast tenderness, or fluid retention.
Magnesium is present in many foods, including nuts and seeds, legumes, avocado, whole grains (oats, buckwheat, quinoa), chocolate, and fatty fish (salmon and mackerel).
Omega 3 Fatty Acids
High omega-3 fatty acid concentration makes seafood beneficial for endometriosis sufferers. Essential fatty acids are ones our body can’t make and must acquire from food.
They’re precursors for the body’s prostaglandins because they regulate inflammation. “Good” prostaglandins reduce inflammation, whereas “bad” ones cause it. In endometriosis, prostaglandins are imbalanced, which may worsen pain and fertility.
