A Night on Nutrition - Insight Endometriosis Free Seminar

A Night on Nutrition - Insight Endometriosis Free Seminar

Waikato women, teenage girls and health professionals will benefit from a presentation by Educator Annette Evans titled “Endometriosis and Nutrition” on Wednesday 25 June. The meeting will be held at CCS Disability Action, 17 Claudelands Road, Hamilton, from 7pm.

The free seminar is part of an education programme offered by Insight Endometriosis, a community organisation supporting women with endometriosis.

Insight Endometriosis educator Annette Evans, said “Nutrition has a big role to play in managing endometriosis. Many women find symptoms can be relieved or exacerbated through diet. This free seminar presents a structured approach about which foods help and which hinder, and why”

Endometriosis is a significant and common condition, which can dramatically impair quality of life.

The most common symptom is period pain, characterised by taking pain relief, bed rest and time off work or studies. Endometriosis is also a leading cause of fertility problems.

Annette said “Many women are diagnosed as a result of fertility investigations yet experienced period pain for often half a lifetime. Women and teen girls need to seek help when period pain affects their lifestyle. Their GP can refer them to a gynaecologist specialising in endometriosis, or they can self-refer to a gynaecologist in private practice.”

‘Insight Endometriosis supports women to make informed decisions about treatment options and lifestyle changes, and ensures that women and their families aren’t left facing a significant health problem in isolation’, she said.

Insight Endometriosis extends a special thanks to CCS Disability Action for providing the venue.
