#18: Eat for Endometriosis with Dr Anita Mitra

12 Mar 2019

Welcome to this episode of the podcast.   Today we’re going to be talking with one of my favourites for the podcast - Gynaecologist and lifestyle medicine advocate, Anita Mitra aka the Gynae Geek  - who returns to the podcast, this time to discuss Endometriosis.

Essentially, Anita is the gynaecologist and women’s health specialist that everyone wishes they had - she is an absolute wealth of information.

In today’s episode we talk about the following

  • What Endometriosis actually is
  • Why to avoid treatments like colonic irrigation
  • The importance of drinking water and eating fibre in your diet
  • The importance of Oestrogen in your body
  • What is Oestrogen dominance
  • The importance of exercise
  • Why fruit can be one of the best things to include in your diet

If I could recommend one recipe to sum up  today’s episode it would be the Greek Style Giant Beans which is going to be in my new book - Eat to Beat Illness- out on 21st March.  This recipe is absolutely delicious - it’s Greek style, there’s lots of greens in there, plus lots of beans, all in a delicious mediterranean style tomato sauce and super easy to make.


I really hope this episode has given you a greater understanding of what exactly Endometriosis is and why diet and lifestyle have such an important part to play when it comes to looking after overall health,  as well as health related to Endometriosis.
Womens health is such an important area and one I always get asked lots of questions about.  I hope this episode and the others that we have recorded with Anita have helped to answer some of your key questions.
Dont forget to check out Anitas excellent book, The Gynae Geek: Your No-Nonsense Guide to Down There Healthcare - its amazing, full of super helpful and interesting information which I know women up and down the country are going to love.
You can follow Anita too on the social media links that are posted below.
