I have endometriosis and since I was diagnosed I have learned ways in which my diet can improve my condition. I am interested in keeping my hormones and my weight at bay so you will see lots of articles on how to manage your diet, tips to improve your nutrition and different ways in which our minds do affect our hormones as well.
One thing I have learned is that we are not only a body and a mind but they are very well linked. And whatever is happening in our life and how we perceive it (ie. stress) will be felt in our body in the form of an imbalance or illness sometimes.
There is a very rational explanation to this and it is that when we suffer in our mind, our body still perceives it as a threat and so it uses all resources to survive that threat (when it is in our mind, it can be stress, anxiety, etc…). While the body is busy doing this, our immune system gets weak and other agents may threat our health (bacteria,illnesses, etc..).
This section is a compilation of everything that I have learned and that I am still learning and I hope you enjoy it.
