Natural Support For Endo

Natural Support For Endo

Has anyone had luck with the use of Vitex and other herbal support and diet changes for endo?

I tried vitex but it made me super emotional and made my breasts engorged and tender. Diet changes (no gluten, no cow dairy, very little sugar) + medication (low dose naltrexone) + some supplements (magnesium, vitamin d, NAC, digestive enzymes) + a good naturopath worked for me. I used to be in almost daily pain for a few years after my excision surgery and now I only have mild pain on the first day or 2 of my cycle and occasionally a shadow of pain maybe once a month.

I havent tried Vitex but a lot of girls on my fertility app are on that and feel it helps improve their cycles/regulate their hormones. A naturopath would be helpful - ask for a comprehensive stool analysis and food sensitivity testing. Low FODMAP or anti inflammatory diets can be helpful to start until you know what works for your body. I personally use a lot of the diet concept from “heal endo” - katie edmonds … she has a book and a website. I ate tons of grains and was vegetarian and have totally swapped and felt a lot better, but only after also targeting things that were too low and high in my gut. Good luck!

Great info. Thank you! Breast tenderness is something I was concerned about so that is super useful feedback. I have been looking into naturopaths in my area and hope to find one soon. Thanks so much.
