In women who suffer from endometriosis, this is a tissue very similar to the uterine lining (endometrium) which grows in various parts outside of the pelvic cavity.

This tissue swelling and bleeding at the same time that appears in the female menstrual cycle.
Green Tips:

It is strongly suggested that you avoid alcohol, caffeine, dairy products, eggs, fried, red meat, sugar and salt in food.
The natural healing alternatives suggested here, can be made from food and are very safe.
Soybean (Glycine max)

Endometriosis as breast cancer are related to estrogen. And soybean, due to the high genistein content and dadzeína, which are similar to estrogen is recommended for curing these diseases.
These two phyto-oestrogens will prevent the body to absorb other forms of estrogen most harmful when circulating in the blood.
Although one has to be careful with GM soya, see link,  these green beans as frozen soy are recommended since they give delicious recipes: Rice with Vegetables.


However, all types of beans, may get mottled although the best of them have these phyto-hormones. So if you replace meat with beans and rice on a daily basis this is a good option. Peas, peas bauchi (Psoralea corylifolia), cowpeas, beans, mung bean (Vigna radiata) and lentils are too.

                                         Mung bean
Sprouts of these beans in salads contain 100 times more phyto-oestrogens than soybeans. The bean sprouts are great in salads too after cleaning with water and salting for 15 minutes.
The bean soups are very good too. See Link.
                                             Peas bauchi
The peas bauchi (Psoralea corylifolia) mentioned as a treatment for endometriosis are also used in complementary treatment of prostate cancer by their action of containing a molecule : a Psoralidin that inhibits the phosphorylation of protein kinase (Akt) and its consequent activation against prostate cancer. See Link.
                     Linen - Linum usitatissinum -
or rather its seed, Linseed, has abundant amounts of substances called lignans which help control cancer and endometrial cancer.
Although endometriosis is not the same as cancer of the endometrium both involve the uncontrolled growth of endometrial tissue therefore the use of flax seed is being suggested to treat endometriosis.
These seeds should be ground and added to soups or oatmeal at breakfast.

Peanut - Arachis hypogaea
contains many of the substances present in beans including the thin red bark that surrounds the Spanish type peanuts, which are equal to the Portuguese. It's oligomeric procyanidins helps heal the hormone-dependent diseases such as breast cancer and endometriosis.

Alfalfa, Medicago sativa

The alfalfa sprouts or alfalfa contain phyto estrogens and should be eaten in salad.
Yet it has contraindications:
People with a history of lupus should abstain because there are studies that relate this disease to the consumption of alfalfa.

Evening Primrose - Oenothero biennis

The evening primrose oil contains gamma linolenic acid and tryptophan which are a good treatment for PMS (Pre Menstrual Tension) and is in the same list like Linseed and Soya beans with regard to the treatment of endometriosis.
