Nutrition: does it Affect my Body and Endometriosis?

Nutrition and Endometriosis

Below are pictures of vegetables that have been deprived of certain nutrients. This is a simplistic way of grasping what can happen in the human body over extended periods of time. 

You can view your body as a large detoxification powerhouse, continually rebuilding and repairing 24/7. When you lack these resources, a slow breakdown begins and disease sets in.  It is impossible for one organ to simply become diseased, it takes multiple organs or systems to become weakened causing a chain of events (symptoms) ending in a “disease”, such as endometriosis. 

Deep Healing and Long Lasting Effects

When you focus on weak area’s in the body your biochemistry begins to shift and a deeper long lasting healing occurs. The Whole Body Approach is what makes the difference between natural medicine and conventional. My extensive knowledge in endometriosis and my unique approach allows your whole body to repair itself and bring the body back into balance.

There is a particular group of organs and systems that are deeply tied in with endometriosis, the key is rebalancing one organ at a time. Never overburdening the body with too much detoxifying. Along with detoxifying you have to look at diet and its roll. A simple way of thinking about how the body can shift into a zone of depletion or toxic overload is shown in pictures below.

 Pictures of Veggie Deficiencies

This is a very simplistic way of looking at what can happen to body when there is an imbalance of nutrients. What do you suppose could happen to the human body when it lacks nutrients over extended time like these veggies?



This tomato suffers from a deficiency in calcium. Perhaps you have seen this in your own garden. These symptoms can also be found in melons, cucumbers, and peppers.


Iron is essential for plants to make chlorophyll. Iron also helps "fix" a nitrogen problem in the soil. You may see this deficiency in your neighborhood tree's.


Boron deficiency causes growth reduction. It is the most common minor nutrient missing in vegetable crops. Boron is needed for protein synthesis and increases flower set, which in turn increases bounty.


Poor flesh development is caused by a deficiency in potassium.

Yes, we are Hardier, But Not By as Much As You Think!

Granted, we have a more complex system than a vegetable garden, and we can withstand depletion longer than the growing season of a tomato, ask yourself, how many years can we neglect our bodies before some type of symptom surfaces? Whether it’s fruit, vegetable, or the human body, lacking a balanced state results in disease. Don’t always assume when something is lacking in our diet we can miraculously find a way to to overcome it. The body will rob from another area in the body to stay level. Opposite of lacking nutrients, we can overburden the body with types of food that bog down and block the natural flow of our system. Clearing the toxicity and creating a balanced flow brings new health and energy to the body.

Imagine what happens when you intake just enough vitamins and minerals to keep acute symptoms from showing, but not enough to keep your organs and systems from breaking down slowly.

In the natural health field I see this everyday, it's what I refer to as the "grey area" simply because it goes unrecognized and baffles many. The deprivation of nutrients in our prepackaged and fast food society has become pandemic allowing disease to settle in younger generations. They should be enjoying health, not pain, pills and endless visits to the doctors office.

Simply changing your diet is not enough to remove the toxic buildup in your body, with professional help you can detoxify and drain specific organs and bring the body back into balance. Tweeking the diet along side the detoxification brings a well balanced state back to the body. Changes in diet can be made slowly and generally and most diets can stay somewhat the same with minor changes. This creates new found health for you to enjoy the rest of your life.
