Endometriosis is a painful and sometimes debilitating condition, where uterine tissue grows outside of the uterine walls.
Diets affect steroid hormone levels, and therefore have effects on endometriosis. Low fat, high fiber diets have been shown to alter steroid hormone metabolism favorably in regards to fertility. A separate study finds that high fat diets, such as keto, can rebalance hormones for fertility so long as the fat is mostly plant-based, and some naturally occurring dairy fat is also included.
