Endometriosis wheat free "diet"

Anyone have any feedback or opinions about the "diet".  I had done very little research into it, but have, however seen the book and read into it a slight amount.  It talks about removing wheat from the diet, caffiene, alchohol, etc.  Now, I am already a pretty healthy eater, but Im reluctant to take this step when going to a totally wheat free diet can be VERY expensive.  Anyone have an opinion? Know anything?  Personal experiences?

Also, my dr has discussed the possibility of Lupron with me.  How about that?  Personal experiences? advice?

Thank you guys so much for any help you may have, really means very much!

You would probably see a very big difference on the diet, I have done it before but for other reasons (female related). Lupron can be very dangerous and I passed on that treatment, I use a natural phytoestrogen cream that I developed for my female related autoimmune disorder. Not sure of your age but Lupron kicks your body into menopause and you obviously can't have hormones to prevent bone loss, depression, hot flashes, etc. Of course, it's a "benefits outweighs the risks" decission. I opted against it because I have enough health problems with out drugs like Lupron causing more damage than good. Instead of getting rid of my female hormones, I increased my hormones kind of like the levels would be if I were pregnant. I've read that pregnancy temporarily stops endometriosis so raising your hormones (which you need) may help like it has for me. Synthetic hormones can be bad as well causing female related cancers, another reason I decided to use the natural estrogen that I found. Very potent natural phytoestrogen.

Since I can't really do a topical cream.. (I don't think???)... isnt that the same thing soy has in it??? can you get a capsule form?? brand... where to find it????

Thank you so much for your helpful information!!! Deff. will try both before Lupron... Im only 22 and the risks are, well, not encouraging.

Again, thank you soooo much!

Your welcome! Are you allergic to soy? not understanding why you couldn't use a topical cream?! My cream is not soy and I also have just a plain oil infusion using Pueraria Mirifica. It works like a patch and goes in thru the skin (transdermal), so I could stop treatment if I had some sort of reaction. I had difficulties with oral doses of the Pueraria Mirifica so I had to find a way around oral doses, hence my transdermal treatments. I believe Pueraria Mirifica is in the soy family but completely different species. I can not use soy but can use the PM. Did you find my website on my profile page??? My whole story and info about my treatment can be found on my website. Should be pretty easy to find the links to my story and there's a ton of other info about my specific condition and my treatment. Not sure if I can post links here and don't want to violate any rules. Hope this helps! Lori
