bitters . Digestive enzymes help break down food and are probably the best all-purpose aids to digestion. If you have any minor digestive problem, from reflux to gas and bloating, constipation, lactose intolerance, or just plain stomach aches after meals, try enzymes. Bitter herbs are a traditional remedy.
This was about 10 years ago. Now even Trace Amounts are a problem. I even make sure I stay away from raw onions such as a diced ones you might get on a hamburger in a fast food place.
Living here in the South is a totally different story, everything is breaded and has gravy and you are the smallest person in a good square mile. So when you ask for something without it they just roll their eyes.
If there is not enough stomach acid you wonâ€™t get enough nutrients and then end up with heartburn. Low stomach acid not only causes heartburn issues but also doesnâ€™t allow macronutrients that you need for energy, and micronutrients you need, to support your health to flourish. A lot of people arenâ€™t aware of the correlation between good sleep and their digestive system. Your digestion needs time to rest and a good nightâ€™s sleep aids it in its processes. Whilst youâ€™ve been awake your body has been craving energy-giving foods that it needs to keep your joints and muscles functioning, as well as fuelling your brain and nervous system.
No more barium swallows or experimental drug combinations. Youâ€™ve heard the phrase â€œpay it forward? â€ I am the oldest of four and by the time my sister was born, we were sick all the time, slept a lot and were allseverly undweight and labeled â€œfailure to thriveâ€ I was nearly seven and weighed an astonishing 38 pounds and was slightly taller than a four year old cousin. I had a hard time in school, while my brother had the disdended belly, exima and horrible mood swings.
- I just came off a 7 day cleanse from reading Medical Medium by Anthony William.
- I am extremely intolerant.
- Then after a few days, move up to two, then three, etc.
- I have this pain in my stomach every time I eat.
- GERD is a condition where acid escapes up out of the stomach, and into the esophagus.
Over time, my digestion got worse and worse but because it was kind of gradual, I didnâ€™t really pay attention and did what a lot of people do – convinced myself it was â€˜normalâ€™ to feel constantly bloated, constipated or running to the bathroom with diarrhea, tired, terrible gas, aching joints, and almost two years of gynecological problems including chronic and constant yeast infections. I was miserable but not connecting all these health problems to one source, when my husband got a colonoscopy and a couple of blood tests done after having a recurring dull pain in his side. He came back as having a slight sensitivity to wheat, and he looked at me and said â€˜maybe itâ€™s wheat that is making you so illâ€™.
He said it was â€œup to meâ€ â€¦ I felt like exactly like you said, that he felt like my symptoms werenâ€™t real. I was sick of feeling like crap so I decided on Monday that I would just stop eating gluten and see what happens. Itâ€™s been four days, but I feel SO MUCH BETTER!!! Itâ€™s incredible. My stomach no longer hurts, the bloating has gone down, I feel like I have more energy and I had some â€œnormalâ€ bathroom results for the first time in as forever as I can remember.
I have an intolerance to gluten. When I found out, with the help of my doctor, so many things made sense about my health. And after eliminating it, so many things cleared up.
Stick at it! And donâ€™t feel bad in telling people â€˜Iâ€™m getting better, but itâ€™s a long roadâ€™. Youâ€™ve been unknowingly making yourself ill for YEARS.
