Bloating with Endometriosis: 2 Possible Reasons

This is one of the worst symptoms of endometriosis, don’t you think? I hated it! I always felt full and heavy. Like some big ol’ elephant. Tired, irritated and really, really fat! Not that elephants are fat!

Thing is, it is a symptom of endometriosis but bloating doesn’t need to become a daily part of our lives! I have discovered two reasons for bloating with endometriosis.

Over the last two years, I have discovered what we can really do to eliminate the bloating from our bodies. Do you want to know what they are?

Check out my video on bloating for endometriosis:

Have you found that digestion and hormones played a part in your bloating being reduced? Do you get really bad bloating, where you wear clothes double your size, just to feel comfortable? What is your experience? Please feel free to share 🙂

    Hi Christine,

    I understand that it is hard to find the motivation to give up gluten – it is not an easy thing to do 🙂 I cut out all gluten for 2 weeks and then ate a large bowl of pasta. It was the most reliable test I needed for myself – instant pain, bloating, headache and felt incredibly tired. I have had no gluten for over a year now and have lost heaps of weight, have much more energy and feel much better for it. Maybe try that test or if you need something more concrete, go for an official test – it is up to you 🙂 The way I did it, cost nothing 🙂
    Hugs and all the best to you

    Thanks for the info! I’m very happy to find your site! I’m slowly changing my diet and increasing my exercise. I find that if I do a major shock change it causes more stress and the negative outweighs the positive. I’m also happy to hear I’m not alone with the bloating! I’ve always had a flat tummy and this is such a new experience for me. My endo showed up after the birth of my two year old son. At first I thought I just had to firm up my mommy tummy. 🙂 now that I’m exercising regularly, I’m realize it’s not fat cause it’s not jiggly like fat. 🙂 At any rate, I’m happy I found ur site, cause I’ve been to the Dr at out concern of looking six months pregnant by the end of the day. I had all the necessary tests. And I’m clear from a serious medical perspective.

    My question…..when you chose to give up gluten foods, were you told you had celiac or gluten intolerance or did you make the choice on ur own? I’m slowly improving my diet and have cut down significantly and no longer crave sugar and processed foods. I’ve increased my fiber intake. And adding more juicing/smoothies to up my greens and phytonutirent intake. And am in the process adding some of the supplements you have suggested. So my next steps to leaning towards a more endo-friendly diet seem so mentally challenging. I feel if a test showed I needed to eliminate gluten or diary, I’d be more motivated to do it. Making that choice on my own has been very tough. 🙂

    The best source of protein is from seaweeds. Highest amount and give us heaps of other vitamins, trace elements etc

    What about beans? I love them, great source of protein, but the beans=gas, which=pain…so I tend to avoid them more than I want to because I also avoid meat…but i need protein 🙁 Does anyone get this? Any ideas?

    thanks a lot for this!! i’m french so it’s hard to find information on the internet… i’m trying the diet soon

    Very informative! I never realized estrogen dominance played such a big role in the bloated tummy I have. I’ve pretty much cut out all flour and wheat products now and that has helped a lot!

    HI Melissa! You are so sweet! Thanks for all your info and help. I’ve been on vacation and had a terrible time feeling bad for two weeks due to bad eating. Looking forward to coming home and going on the proper diet for my body and hope the bloating goes away too!

    Hi Melissa, are you living in the UK? I had the impression you were living in New Zealand for some reason!

    I have suffered terrible bloating from time to time, particularly if I am having my periods, it can be really uncomfortable. Thanks for another informative video.
