A super drink for Endometriosis

by

I wanted to combine what I have researched about Endometriosis and the beneficial natural treatments I have used, to create one powerful super drink! The idea is, that we supply our bodies with a power punch of goodness, which we drink every single day to alleviate the associated symptoms and pain with having Endometriosis. This easy to make tea for endometriosis also tastes great (not all herbs for endometriosis do)!

Here are the 5 key ingredients:

1. Yarrow Tea

This is the base of the drink. Yarrow has been shown to be incredibly beneficial for women with Endometriosis. It alleviates inflammation, bloating and acts as an astringent – so essentially “laps” up any excess moisture in the body. This is beneficial for women with Endometriosis but also all the associated conditions which often come with the condition, like Candida and “damp” in the body.

It is also an amazing uterine tonic so will help to build the Uterine wall and keep it healthy and strong. Yarrow also encourages Bile flow in the body, which will help with the breakdown of fats, crucial for healthy liver function and hormonal balance.

2. Whey Isolate Protein Powder

Though we want to avoid the sugars (Lactose) in milk, we definitely need to get an easy to digest and absorbable protein. Proteins are really important in supporting our immune function and will aid the liver in many ways. The benefit of using Whey is that it is really easy to make and combines well for a super drink too!

 

3. Slippery Elm Powder

One of the troubles many women with Endometriosis experience is digestive trouble. I suspect this may relate somewhat to years of taking the contraceptive pill and pain-killers as these really damage and hamper the natural balance in our digestive tract.

When we experience digestive troubles, this can create huge amounts of unnecessary pain in the lower abdominal area, which contributes to feeling unwell with Endometriosis. Sometimes, the pain can be so intense from digestive issues, that it is hard to distinguish between the Endometriosis and the digestive system.

Slippery Elm Powder is an incredible soother for the digestive tract and will allow the digestive tract to be lined with a soft mucous like lining. This is also really great for the stomach lining – often damaged by pain-killers and is incredibly nutritive for the body.

(You can find slippery elm powder on Amazon.)

4. Molasses

Most women with Endometriosis, tend to experience heavy blood flow and this could lead to iron deficiencies. There are so many benefits to molasses and it works really well in this drink! Molasses offers a great source of iron but also gives this drink some sweetness!

5. Dates

These are optional as some extra sweetness and offer us an additional digestive support. Dates are also high in potassium, magnesium, and copper. These are all really important minerals for women with Endometriosis.

The super drink that is working for my Endometriosis right now
 
Ingredients
  • loose leaf yarrow (approximately ¼ cup)
  • 4 tbsp whey protein isolate powder
  • 1 tbsp slippery elm powder
  • 1 tbsp molasses
  • 2-3 dates (optional)
Instructions
  1. Step 1: Prepare a tea with Yarrow. I generally make around 2 cups and make it quite strong, allowing the leaves and flowers to seep for a good 30 minutes.
  2. Step 2: Pour the tea into a blender. Add 3-4 Tablespoons of Whey Protein Isolate powder.
  3. Step 4: Add 1 Tablespoon of Slippery Elm Powder.
  4. Step 5: Add about 1 Tablespoon of Molasses.
  5. Step 6: Soak the dates for about 20 minutes and then add in about 2-3 Dates (if desired).

 

I recommend drinking this twice a day for about a month and then see how your body feels. These are all very powerful herbs and the combination just works!
