There is a logical reason why nutrition is important to healing your body. Ultimately, it is the energy source of what you are feeding your body. That makes sense. What many of us don’t realize is how nutrition actually affects all aspects of our lives, far beyond just giving our bodies the best that we can.
Here are 4 bigger reasons outside of that:
1.Foods create and elevate moods
I am always amazed at how women that change their eating patterns instantly feel more positive about their lives and their endometriosis. I think it works as good nutrition gives us energy and we feel better, so we naturally are more positive. One interesting things is, when you read any books on depression or anything along those lines, they all suggest nutrition as the first step too.
2. Change your life perspectives
One thing I have noticed is how when I am eating better, I feel like I can achieve more. It is like there is something in the food that makes me feel like I can be more. My mind seems clearer and more focused and like things are logical and easily achieved. Not that mushy brain syndrome where life is hard and complicated!
3. I am just a happier and friendlier person
It is like there is a good energy that comes from good food that somehow permeates into our bodies. I know when I eat bad foods, they somehow make me grumpy and moody and nasty to be around. Good, sunshine-grown foods seems to just bring out the sunshine in me! This will naturally make more positive things happen in your life!
4. I feel lighter and good about how I look
When we eat better, everything improves, not just endo pain. We have better skin, hair, better looking bodies and our eyes sparkle! This makes you feel good about yourself and how you look. I have lost an entire dress size since changing my eating habits and I just love how it feels to fit into dresses I couldn’t wear in the past because of my bulging tummy!
Now, what bigger motivations do you need to get into a better way of eating? Hey, it all starts with a simple decision you make today on what you are going to put in your mouth!

I am happy to hear it Julie! That is fabulous and great for others to know that it is all how you look at it – exciting and healthy alternatives are everywhere now! 🙂
I agree with everything you have said here. Our diet is very important to how we feel. I have to say with having an endo I am eating better and taking better care of myself than I ever have. The best part is I can tell it has made a difference in how I feel.This month I have only had 2 really bad days with endo pain. I believe changing the way I eat has been a big part of that. Food has also become very exciting to me again. So many delicious healthier alternatives out there.:)
