To note: this is an old post & video. I no longer recommend taking fish oil, but rather algae oil instead. For a list of the current supplements I recommend click here.
I did a review of my supplement shelf today, in review of the “extras” that I take to help on my journey to healing endometriosis.
Check it out….
Here is a breakdown of the supplements that help with my endometriosis that I talk about in the video:
- Vitalzym – A digestive enzyme blend, helps with systemic inflammation contains the magical enzyme – serrapeptase – eats scar tissue and cysts
- L-Glutamine – Amino acid with so many healing benefits. Helps heal leaky gut.
- Fish Oil – Anti-inflammatory
- Manjistha – Ayuervedic herb – helps to move the lymph and detoxify the thyroid
- Bee Propolis – Excellent source of B vitamins (very important for healing endo)
- New Chapter Pre-Natal Vitamins – An excellent multi vitamin made up of organic fruits and veggies – easy on my tummy 🙂
- Cramp Bark – Helps relax the muscles in the uterus, helps cramping
- D-Mannose – Helps bladder flares and Urinary Tract Infections (UTI)
- Colon Clear – Contains an Ayuervedic herb called Triphala and aloe vera – both improve digestion and help clear out that which is blocked up 🙂
- Femmenessence Maca Harmony – Adaptagen that helps to naturally balance hormones – love/hate for women with endo – start with a low dose.
- Probiotic – Good for digestion and to balance out good gut flora.
Please note that everyone is different, so what works for me, may not work for you. I’ve come to my own conclusions from my own experimentation and being in tune with the impacts — both positive and negative.
Also note that many supplements can have hidden additions that could actually be harmful. Pay attention to hidden additions of gluten, soy, corn, etc.
On the Positive Side?
The supplements that I talk about have really helped me with my endometriosis pain and related conditions that come along.
As I mention in the video, I’ve shifted from taking a ton of supplements to only primarily including those that help aid my digestion and detoxification pathways. This is with consideration of my liver, as every supplement that we take has to get processed through this important organ.
With that in mind, I don’t take all of these supplements everyday. Much of these I take only when the need arises. This shift has been positive for my wallet, Lol. Supplementation can definitely get expensive.
Did I miss a supplement that really helps with your endometriosis? I’d love to hear from you….
