Endometriosis Study

Can a Plant-Based Diet Reduce Pain and Inflammation from Endometriosis?


Thank you for your interest in our study examining the effect of a dietary intervention on symptoms of endometriosis.

Join a no-cost 12-week research study to test whether a low-fat, plant-based diet can reduce pain and improve quality of life for individuals with endometriosis.

Qualified participants randomized to the plant-based diet group will receive weekly group sessions with physicians, dietitians, and cooking instructors, as well as study-related nutrition education, practical tips, meal planning, and cooking demonstrations to help with the transition to a low-fat, plant-based diet. All participants will receive a one-on-one study-related consultation with a dietitian and complete lab work to measure specific study-related health measures.

If you have been diagnosed with endometriosis, live in the Washington, D.C. area, and are not currently following a low-fat, plant-based diet, please fill out the interest survey and one of our research coordinators will contact you!
