Feminine cycles & Endometriosis Nutrition

Endometriosis & PCOS
Femmes avec des cierges magiques

Today, hormonal imbalances frequently affect women's lives.

Many women face disruptions in the menstrual cycle, premenstrual syndrome, endometriosis, or polycystic ovary syndrome.

Some also experience issues related to menopause, such as hot flashes, irritability, vaginal dryness, and weight gain.

Unfortunately, these problems are often considered normal due to their frequency or cyclical nature. However, they reflect underlying hormonal dysfunctions. We will work together on nutritional solutions to optimize your hormonal balance.

Endometriosis § adenomyosis

Endometriosis and adenomyosis, as inflammatory conditions, can be influenced by our diet, which has the potential to modulate the inflammatory process and play a crucial role in the migration and invasion of endometrial cells.

During dietary counseling, we focus on approaches centered around an anti-inflammatory diet, managing oxidative stress, balancing the intestinal microbiota, regulating hormonal imbalances, and reducing endocrine disruptors.

The targeted objectives are as follows:

  1. Alleviate your symptoms and pain associated with endometriosis or adenomyosis.

  2. Favorably influence the progression of the disease.

  3. Relieve the frequently associated digestive issues (90% of women with endometriosis).

  4. Improve fertility by considering nutritional and hormonal aspects.

Each case of endometriosis is unique, so after an initial assessment, we will tailor the treatment protocol to your individual needs, taking into account your lifestyle and constraints, and addressing these three dimensions:

  1. Anti-inflammatory diet: An "anti-endometriosis" diet rich in Omega-3, antioxidants, and low in saturated fats, without restrictions, to regulate inflammation and the estrogenic environment.

  2. Micronutrition: Implementation of a protocol of dietary supplements, used in functional medicine according to your symptoms.

  3. Lifestyle: Physical activity and endocrine disruptors.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) affects between 5 to 10% of women and is associated with hormonal dysfunction characterized by hyperandrogenism, an excess of testosterone.

Its repercussions are varied, including disturbances in the menstrual cycle, infertility problems, as well as increased risks during pregnancy.


Together, we will explore the dysfunctions responsible for this hormonal imbalance through an observation of symptoms and through biological analyses, in order to personalize the management based on your symptoms.

Thus, the symptoms include:

  1. Oligomenorrhea: manifested by irregular menstrual cycles.

  2. Hirsutism, alopecia, and/or acne: characterized by excess hair growth and/or the growth of hair in unusual places in women, such as the breasts and abdomen. This is accompanied by hair loss and the presence of acne.

  3. Overweight and insulin resistance, which is not systematic but frequent.

Today, women frequently express the need for a holistic care approach, encompassing not only the medical aspect but also aspects such as nutrition, micronutrition, and many others.

Dietary follow-up in the context of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is significantly important to alleviate symptoms and improve your quality of life. An adapted nutritional approach can contribute to regulating hormonal imbalances associated with PCOS; it can even lead to regular menstrual cycles.

Since every woman is different, after an initial assessment, we will adapt the treatment protocol in a personalized way, taking into account your lifestyle and constraints, and working on these three dimensions:

  1. Low glycemic load diet: emphasizing the importance of fats, the need for adequate fiber consumption, different cooking types and their impact, as well as food processing methods to avoid.

  2. Micronutrition: In addition to the plate, implementing a protocol of dietary supplements to alleviate your symptoms.

  3. Lifestyle: Physical activity, stress management, sleep, endocrine disruptors, etc.

A simple hypocaloric diet will be insufficient. Similarly, reducing quantities will not have much effect. To improve and regulate your symptoms, guidance from a healthcare professional may be necessary.

The nutritional program we will create together will be respectful of your habits, gradual, and adapted to your lifestyle. You are always actively involved in its creation.

Menstrual Cycle Disorders, Gynecological Issues, and Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)

A tailored nutritional intervention can have a significant impact on menstrual cycle disorders, gynecological issues, and premenstrual syndrome (PMS), contributing to the overall well-being of women.

Nutrition and micronutrition play a crucial role in maintaining hormonal balance, offering potential solutions to various gynecological disorders such as dysmenorrhea, recurrent candidiasis, and endometriosis, among others.

For example, in the case of dysmenorrhea, adequate intake of magnesium and vitamin B can help alleviate menstrual cramps and improve comfort during periods.

Prevention and management of fungal infections, including recurrent yeast infections, involve balancing nutrition and avoiding nutritional imbalances that can affect the immune system, making the body more susceptible to infections.

Micronutrition can complement this approach by targeting specific nutritional imbalances and improving vaginal flora and intestinal microbiota.

We develop a personalized nutritional approach, taking into account individual needs, dietary habits, and medical specifics. By adopting these nutritional changes with a holistic approach, we aim for better gynecological health.

A woman spends approximately one-third of her life in menopause.

This stage, characterized by hormonal fluctuations, is frequently accompanied by various issues such as hot flashes, neuropsychiatric disturbances, digestive and urogenital problems, and body changes such as weight gain and increased abdominal fat.

In addition to these discomforts, which impact the quality of life for women, the post-menopausal period is associated with an increased incidence of diseases such as osteoporosis and cardiovascular diseases.

There is not one menopause but many menopauses. Each woman is different, and therefore, there is no universal treatment for everyone.

An adapted nutritional and micronutritional approach can play an essential role in supporting health and well-being during menopause, addressing weight management, hormonal balance, metabolic diseases (cholesterol, blood sugar, ...), vasomotor disorders, and providing tools to navigate through this stage optimally.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or Irritable Colon

If you frequently experience bloating, episodes of flatulence, fluctuations in bowel habits, and discomfort after consuming certain foods, it could indicate the presence of a functional colopathy.


This condition is often associated with certain gynecological disorders such as endometriosis (50% of women with endometriosis are affected) or the perimenopausal period.

Also known as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), this disorder disrupts the functioning of the colon or large intestine, which plays a crucial role in food digestion. Due to heightened sensitivity of the colon, IBS can lead to abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, or bloating episodes.

Although generally considered benign, this condition can manifest persistently, affecting overall well-being and quality of life. The introduction of a low FODMAP (fermentable carbohydrates) diet has proven effective in alleviating discomfort and bloating issues.
