I also had an unpleasant experience with some eggnog ice cream I got recently, frozen it was bland and boring. For example the pollution of air is the contamination of pure air by the harmful agents like soot, noxious fumes by vehicles and industries. We already encountered this fall-back mechanism: Here, only a select few primary immunodeficiencies are mentioned that should illustrate certain aspects of immune system functioning. Something along the lines that I would never be normal and I should at the very least be allowed to use the bathroom whenever I need to do and not jeopardize my job.
It took for my wedding ring to slip right off my finger even though it was quite snug when it was first placed on my finger for me to notice it. To give you a sense of just how bad the atrophy is, I am barely above 90 pounds.
I had to lower the chicken and try to find a plant-based protein that would hopefully not constipate me. I recognize that it makes my stomach bloated and uncomfortable, but my stomach pain versus my muscle pain is comparative to getting a leg cramp versus getting the leg sawed off.
So, essentially, all I really care about is making the stool soft enough so that I can pass it rather than end up in the emergency room every few weeks. This is me, 33 years old and just trying to do my best to survive. You really need to be tested for D deficiency and other nutrient deficiencies on top of ruling out disease.
How often do you go outdoors and get sun on skin? I would also point out that many veggies and fruits can be high in oxolates and phytates which bind to minerals like calcium in the gut. B12 deficiency coupled with folate, Vit c or D deficiency as well as EFA deficiency when not addressed could have someone in your situation and just eating foods without correcting those deficiencies will not resolve the issue.
Only you can do this much. It is not in the average GPS interest to fix malnutrition based sickness. It goes right through me without being digested at all. You find corn kernels in complete form in your stool if you eat corn for the same reason.
Can anyone list more vegetables that are high in soluble fiber but low in insoluble fiber? Beef liver contains most vitamin C by far.
Yes amongst other vitamins. Soluble fibre attracts water and slows digestion. Insoluble fibre bulks out stool and helps it pass through the intestine and stomach. Definitely try eating less soluble fiber and bulking up your insoluble fiber intake. I have IBS and I experience really bad constipation at times. It usually happens because of dark green leafy vegetables.
I have stopped eating them when my constipation was going on and my symptoms would subside after a couple of weeks. I would then re-introduce them and my symptoms would almost immediately come back.
Eating potatoes and other starchier veggies would actually get things moving. And my bowel movements would no longer be uncomfortable.
I also notice that a cup of coffee helps as well. I cut out my coffee for a bit and along with eating green leafy vegetables, I really got backed up.
Having that one cup is crucial to keep things moving. You need to figure out what works best for you. I also forgot to mention-I get regular blood tests done and am healthy and have no health issues at all. I have just done a bit of research about psyllium husk and not quite sure where to start. I see it can be consumed multiple ways, which would you recommend?
SO what your basically saying is you have a problem, but not willing to make any change. Whoa there no need to be so critical and harsh. If you have any helpful tips that would be lovely, but please refrain from responding with negativity and attitude.
Vegetables are extremely good for you. They not only contain nutrients, but have phytosterols which lower cholesterol which is important for most people that eat dairy or meat.
Those products may also increase the risk of colon cancer if they sit in the colon too long on a regular basis. I went searching online and found vegan digestive enzymes with probiotics.
I did give them to my mother who has digestive problems and she started taking them with a probiotic and she said that her digestive system is close to normal functioning which is very rare for her.
Wow thank you for all that great information. Maybe this would help you. Oatcakes are a good source of calories, but, gentle on gut. So happy I came across this article! I just recently got home from a 5 day stint in hospital from Small Bowel obstruction and I was told to lay low on high fiber foods!! Thank you for the break down. SIBO is aggravated by excess carbohydrate. It also denotes bacteria in the small intestine sometimes extending into the stomach.
Bacteria and fungi in your large intestine are totally normal, and YES, you should feed them. I have the Personal Paleo Code book and have been trying to find the bonus chapter it mentions on digestive conditions on the website. Any direction would be gratefully appreciated; thank you! I was complaining to a german lady art tutor that ever since I had started to eat more healthily after a terrible diet my whole life, but a very healthy digestion , my digestion had gone to pot.
She suggested that I ate fewer veg, and that I got the goodness without the fibre by juicing them and also by steaming. I only started following her advice about 3 weeks ago, but I am already seeing a difference and feel much less like I have IBS or similar. Chris, your piece has just underlined, explained and clarified what I should be doing, especially the difference between soluble and non soluble fibre.
Within two days I am constipated and can literally smell the vegetables rotting inside me. I keep finding new fruits and veggies that give me severe pain and bloating within minutes to hours of eating them. This was good advice, I appreciate it.
So, found out, by research, and this page, to lay off the veggies which I was eating a ton of. Be sure to get your supplements if you cut out vegies. I am just reintroducing vegies to my diet slowly after 20 years of a low-residue diet. I have an ostomy on the other side as a result of having all my colon removed and I found it necessary to cut out vegies to maintain employment.
It is amazing how more effective the natural sources for nutrients are for healing and good skin. Remember to be careful about your vitamin K. It is tricky to get the right amount from supplements so consult your doctor. I have a question and cannot find the answer on the internet. What enzyme is in pea protein that causes digestive issues,and what enzyme neutralizes it? I want to get digestive enzymes but want to make sure this enzyme is available in the capsule before i buy it.
I was told to do this for a month and if it helps then that means Im eating too much insoluble veggies. Ive only done it for 2 days so I still need a while till I can tell you if it works or not but it might be worth a shot.
I went to the gastro with issues of bloating, gas, and very soft stool. That is crazy to tell people that it is not that important to eat so many vegetables. Meat does NOT have the phytonutrients we need to combat diseases like cancer, and meat is way too acidic without adequate vegetables to maintain balance.
Vegetables and greens should be the main food on everyones plate. If you cant handle the fiber simply heal and seal the gut if you have digestive issues and add additional fiber a little at a time. I eat at least 15 servings a day with an additional 20 servings from green and red powders and look at least 10 years younger than my age.
Too much meat, especially by itself is extremely hard to digest, especially red meat, and takes a considerable amount of effort for the body to digest it, aging you faster. There are plenty of studies on the phytonutrient benefits as well as vegetable fiber in preventing disease.
The Mongolian people have a meat only diet and they thrive. Besides,if certain foods or a group of foods cause digestive issues,it is a hinderance to eat them because they cause digestive issues on other foods that are present in the gut.
Not to mention the obvious issues i. There is also the Macro-diet. My friend does it and has achieved incredible health after a lifetime of allergies and digestive issues.. I used to eat heaps of vegetables being paleo, however they cause me huge digestional distress since getting diagnosed with gallstones, I am stuck to the toilet and in pain and also cause reflux, so am I to just ignore the pain and bowel issues and eat more?
Meat has stabilised my weight loss and keeping my symptoms stable along with a very small amount now of limited cooked veg and other non dairy foods and some berries. I just came back from a raw food diet yoga retreat with tons of veggies and I was so sick and bloated and constipated and felt at all times I had a rock in my belly.
You are able to digest lots of veggies. However, many of us cannot. Perhaps you should consider reading the article and readers comments better…. Not eating too many veggies and thus fibre does NOT imply eating more meat — think straight and read whats written. I have also found that if I centrifuge veggies — ie have the juice and its goodness without the fibre I can tolerate more of them. I do however leave the fibre in with the fruit. Each persons body is somewhat different and we each have to find out own way — I was just sharing my experience in case it was of help to some others.
I have zero problem eating all meat if I feel like doing so. It does NOT make you acidic. In fact, meat contains an amino acid called glutamine which buffers ammonia in your kidneys. And the greatest contributors to cancer are high blood sugar, high insulin, inflammation, and environmental pollutants. Your vegetables solve NONE of those problems by themselves.
Why do I feel sick when I eat raw veggies or fruit but if they are cooked I can eat them all? What good is it to try to obtain nutrients from food poorly absorbed? Vegetables increase intestinal motility and can cause diarrhea. They are good for you if you are constipated. Get phytonutrients from fruit. Fruit is not so problematic, except bananas. Phytonutrients are helpful, but they are not essential to a healthy diet.
Vegetables are super foods, packed with vitamins and minerals and low in calories. But the nutrients in vegetables are poorly absorbed. Small amounts are ok, I have since switched to spinach to mix in romaine lettuce salads.
We try to eat at least servings of produce like 3 fruits and 3 veg or more veg. Bok choy and the cabbage family is another problem, except I can eat collards, which is only veg. I try to eat fruit in season. Not everyone can eat every type fr.
I have three main food intolerances: That is pretty much all food except for meat. I eat lettuce with olive oil and sea salt during the day and a small piece of meat or eggs at night. However, recently i was unable to cook so just stuck to lettuce and eggs for a few days.
When i went back to meat again i found i could not digest it either. I am starting to wonder if i am going to end up not being able to digest anything at all soon. The problem with that is we find ourselves unable to digest the food that we eat and we develop intolerance to many things.
So the trick is, after your body heals the ulcer, you need to turn the digestive fire back on. The following line will explain how to do that:. First, you wanna make sure you go on a conscious restrictive diet to give time for your body to heal from the ulcer. This involves engaging in a plant-base diet or more precisely, an alkaline diet.
This involves stopping the consumption of acid forming foods like animal product egg, meat, milk, fish etc. You can go to a doctor to check regularly if your ulcer is healed if you had any, that is. Once you are clear, now we more to step two. You want to drink 3 liters of water daily. Your liver produces bile, which due to our bad eating habits, can get sticky and clog your liver making it work sluggishly. A good bile flow is necessary for the emptying of food mixed with stomach acids into the small intestine.
So bile actually neutralizes the acid so the small intestine can accept the food. Simply by consuming 1 whole beet daily for 3 months every morning. Following this regimen will help your body produce enough stomach acid required to digest the food that you eat. Try to limit your fruits and vegetables to your morning meals. Eat a small piece of ginger roots before every meal to stimulate stomach acid production.
Mix 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and one lemon in a cup of water and drink 20 mins after a meal. Keep a 30 minutes interval before and after meals. I think celery juice, as talked about extensively in the Medical Medium book by Anthony William, would help you.
Yes, I have had everything checked out. I have multiple problems collagenous colitis, hiatal hernia, stomach ulcer and diverticulitis. I have avoided them for years, just something about them gives me the colly wobbles, and now I know why. Peas are fine, potatoes, carrots, sweetcorn, avocado, spinach, broccoli and cabbage a bit windy, but nothing like this. They were well cooked as well, and fresh from Waitrose. A few things I might add.
Good probiotics is always a GREAT start for correcting digestive issues…this is critical due to our heavy intake of antibiotics throughout our food system and medical system.
This will help restore your gut. Also, many people are low in certain digestive issues. That being said, you may need to add a good digestive enzyme when you consume certain foods. Eating more RAW veggies can help as well.
Finally, many people have food sensitivies…always good to isolate these types of foods from the diet. Please explain how NAET heals digestive issues. We do NAET for my son who apparantly has digestive issues with sugar, soy and combining grains and potatoes.
Thank you so much in advance if you reply! Raw vegetables are a no no for my IBS. I can tolerate a small amount of raw carrot. I have to avoid a lot of cooked veggies such as broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts. Says diet band wagon. Without the food pyramid you will develop deficiencies. Which could easy lead to ailments. Any new diet that comes out is looking for something that already exists.
It could benefit some people. I would say more than most will excel with the food pyramid, family safe to. We all are unique and some may require a specialized diet. Rather curtail your specific food to their grouping and agreeability. How do you classified insoluble fiber abundant vegetables and soluble fiber abundant vegetables?
For example, how do you know that cruciferous vegetables broccoli, cabbage, bok choy, etc. Pretty much basic science. That type of experiment in no way would work in and of itself given that most fiber from veggies or fruit are digested in the large bowel by bacteria not stomach acids. Insoluble fiber is just that. No amount of acid is going to dissolve that. Cooking the fiber well might make it more tolerable though and less abrasive on gut. I think Fodmaps is great and helps people pinpoint what may be problematic for them.
But some Westerners are just not accustomed, nor have yet built up digestive good bacteria to break down plants that they need for optimal health, which can develop with gradually increasing intake of plant fibers.
Sticking to high amounts of vegetables that work for them is likely best. And though there are great health benefits of raw vegetables, the best bang for nutrition buck is cooked greens, like lucinato kale. You get the rainbow of nutrients AND easier digestion with cooked, rather than raw dark leafy greens. Spinach is much more tolerable. That Rainbow of nutrients that disappears with cooking. Better to juice and remove the fiber if you want the nutrition.
Half of the plants out there put our anti nutrients like phytates or salicylate or oxylates that bind calcium and other minerals in the gut. Last night had lightly steamed broccoli and also ate some stems. Proceeded to read some articles to find that broccoli was not a veggie of choice for my condition. I have found vegetables along with fruit can heighten pain in many IBS suffers. But keeping a balanced diet is essential. The key is working out across all food groups which ones are your biggest triggers and then trying to avoid them.
I turned Vegan last month and been eating raw veggie salad and now my stomach feel horrible….. Where do you base your distinction between insoluble and soluble fiber vegetables on?
Charts online show conflicting information, most vegetable have similar amounts of soluble and insoluble fiber for example. Also why focus only on vegetables and not fruits, grains and nuts? Did the meat industry pay u to post this. Listen here, your digestion problems are from meats! We as a society need to get away from the meat dominated society it is so bad for us but people and blind and in denial of the truth.
What a load of rubbish kels, people have eaten meat to survive since time began and were not vegetarians until recently. I am over the moon to read this article as it may really help my situation. Kels, your ignorance and total lack of empathy is very sad. You cooments are spoken like someone who has no idea what IBS is like to live with. If I juice my green leaf and other veggies will that also harm my gut and cause problems with my digestion?
How about if I blend the veggies in a powerful blender to make a nice creamy veggie smoothie? I make my smoothies only from the leafy part. I always remove the thickened stem from within the leaves. Am I doing harm to my system????? Hi Gabi, As mentioned by Chris, it is always good to maintain a limit on consumption of insoluble as well as soluble fiber.
Greens spinach, lettuce, kale, mesclun, collards, arugula, watercress are high in insoluble fiber. So, even if you think of making a juice, have it with some soluble food and avoid to consume on empty stomach. Chris, Green Lemon Tea has proved a natural cure for all my digestive problems.
How would you recommend it to others? For all digestive problems drink some apple cider vinegar the one with the mother,that will help. I drink chia seeds and flax seeds every morning and now I also drink it before I go to bed. But lately, I experience a feeling of sour stomach in the middle of the night. I am not sure if that is the cause of it. It might be, now that I have read some articles that too much fiber can cause stomach problems. Or am I low on acid in my stomach?
I am writing this at 3: I will try not to take chia seeds and flax seeds before bed or none at all the next day to see if I still have a feeling of sour stomach during day and at night.
I will let you know. Even if you removed fiber from Juice you are still left with oxylates and salycilates in case of veggies or fruits that contain such and the dangers of over consumption in that case leads to a deficiency in some nutrients. Oxylates and phytates bind with calcium and other minerals in the gut. Some are sensitive to nightshade plants like potatoes. Eat everything in moderation with lots of variety.
When you get into eating the same thing day in and day out or eating too much of one food group or removing a few whole food groups, you are messing with your health in untold ways. It could also be said that eating local seasonal produce is the wiser option. Many of us would not have eaten bananas in the past. I myself have had intolerance tests and the main culprits were wheat, lactose, banana, potato, tomato, and glycophosphates came up high in my tests.
Lots of mineral and vitamin deficiencies cropped up. This is why we gain weight in winter and lose it in summer. Get out and get some sun exposure. Take vitamin D and Also take B vitamins until your D levels are such that bacteria levels in gut are optimal again. The bacteria manufacture B vitamins in the gut. No sun, low D, therefore results in B deficiencies. Your far more able to see patterns re intolerance seasonally. This is common sense stuff. Ditto fruit, meat or anything you consume.
Also take a look at what is being sprayed onto your veggies. At the very least but the dirty dozen fruits and veggies from organic suppliers. Get away from the screen and get outside. I too have tried many diets, including paleo, and have come to the conclusion, through many trials, that meat consumption is the biggest culprit behind my indigestion. Beef, pork, and game meats, no matter how organic, free range, or pastured, always, always, always give me problems. I just cannot digest meat.
I find that chicken and fish are more easily tolerated, along with gasp! I continue to steer clear of nightshades, and even fermented veggies contribute to my never-ending heartburn. I love salads but usually have problems with them too. I have been looking into ayurvedic cuisine and have found the diet, mostly vegetarian and relatively high carb, very easy on my system.
I guess I am a special case. Lots of people have the same problems, but instead of realizing them they walk around with big bellies and loads of old food in their guts. Have you taken the type test on Mercola. I also think things change as we wax and wane in our health.
Where is your quarter? Because if you are not from the center for sure you are eating pork meat or sh.. Those porks serve only a purpose against the freedom of the big men to eat the meat of animals, cousins of workers and small people.
But a pork cant be eaten and this is the reason of their job integrated meat fibres in the meat industry or the max-food. You just hit the nail on the head — same issues here. I physically want to throw up after eating meat. Fish I can stand. Even lamb if it is very tender I can stomach.
Red meat not a chance. It has however been difficult moving to a plant based diet when all some veggies seem to want to do is try to kill me via reflux. I contracted giardia decades ago trekking in Nepal, and have had gut problems ever since.
There is very little that I can eat when my tummy is upset. Did you properly eradicate the parasite? Perhaps do some research on this and get retested. I survive on chicken, fish, beef, corn cornflakes, corn chips rice, rice crispies, some seeds and nuts and occasionally eggs.
I would suggest low fat meats for you, if you do eat veggies, eat less of them. This site may be useful: Fodmaps is the way to go but just take it easy, slow introduction, perhaps try to find alternative foods that contain the same vitamins, chew well, eat small amounts often. Read the Clay Cure by Ran Knishinsky. The clay is very soothing to the whole digestive system and it will heal inflammation as well as safely kill parasites. It will not take long clay is amazing.
Try hemp seeds hemp hearts full of omegas 3 and 6 perfect 1: I say because I had stomach problem and the doc had me on chemical fiber psyllium and it screwed my stomach up. I can understand the getting away from corn as well, which is virtually GMO across the board anymore. Grains are a no-go and same with oats. What about rice and beans? I have no clue what the hell to eat anymore. My mom tested positive for Celiac Disease, I most likely have it too.
As a kid I had eczema and would also spit up the baby formula a lot. I also have acid reflux and I get canker sores on the inside of my mouth at times too. I was also waking up with hypnopompic and hypnagogic hallucinations when acid reflux and anxiety were high accompanied by chills. Insomnia was another one. I also had flaky dry skin especially some redness and flaky skin seborrheic dermatitis where my mustache comes in.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated! It looks like you would benefit from the specific carbohydrate diet scd. I had some although not all of those symptoms. I was eventually through my insistence on specific tests I researched diagnosed with environmental toxin poisoning. My system is not good at detoxifying so I had to get rid of every possible chemical in my life … beauty and personal products, cleaning products, medications, etc.
I already ate very cleanly and little to no processed foods but was vegetarian. Now I am a flexitarian and am doing so well. I credit the elimination of chemicals in my life and house. Diet is only part, albiet a large part, of the answer. I wondered how you are doing because your post parallels my condition. I am allergic to dairy, eggs, soy, wheat, and corn. All I eat now are rice krispies, chocolate, and plain peanut butter all organic with no additives.
What do you eat? Is there any useful enzyme one can take, a la beano, that makes digesting raw veggies easier? I cannot eat raw fruits or raw vegetables.
I am wondering if blending raw fruits and vegetables into a smoothie will work or is it that cooking them changes the chemistry so I can digest them? I am scared to try this for fear of getting sick, but if blending them will do the same thing as cooking them, I want to give it a try.
Thanks for your help. Cooking them destroys some of the fiber. They say juice one cabbage a day and drink it 4x throughout the day and eat the diet you can handle and you should start feeling better and hopefully start to slowly introduce more foods after the gut heals. Has anyone else heard about this or tried it? I really believe the body can heal itself if given the right nutrients so before going back to the Dr.
Good luck to all of you! I have an issue when eating carrots and sweet potatoes. So far, pretty much anything orange. Bloating, Constipation, then lead to Diarrhea and Stomach Pains. My doctor has diagnosed me with a lack of fiber issue in the past. She has no clue as to why I would be having the bad reactions to carrots or sweet potatoes.
Ask a dietitian to provide you with the list and how to perform the test. Adding fiber to a diet of a person with inflammatory bowels is the worst thing to do. Juice not blend anything that gives you trouble and see if that helps. I eat plenty of vegetables every day, especially bell papers, maybe not exactly servings a day, but enough. I have Ulcerative Colitis.
Even nuts and corn and onions which have high insoluble fiber go down fine. Digestive issues are very closely related to stress. I wish all the doctors that have told me to increase the amount of fiber in my diet to heal constipation would read this. Over the years, I have stopped doing what they say and listened to my feeling. I observe whenever I took vegetables, the next day I will see what I eat came out floating the next day when I poo. This morning was worst, I found 2 tablets of telfast flu medicine that I took last night floating!
Should I see a doc? Both are Black Boxed short term drugs. Try Ginger Root for Nausea. IF you must take an antibiotic, take the Probiotic 2 hrs later. Colon Cleanse if you get to constipated. I also made butternut squash soup with carrots, potatoes, celery. I found that weird because it is a soup and has lots of liquid already. The problem is I LIKE to eat healthy and all I eat is lots of fruits, veggies, nuts, chicken, shrimp and beef on occasion.
I had been diagnosed with diverticulosis 3 years ago when I had my first diverticulitis attack. After antibiotics and not understanding what was causing all this, I continued to eat my healthy diet which was made up of a high fiber diet. Fruits and nuts for breakfast and I was obsessed with eating a large salad EVERY day for lunch except weekends, loaded with baby romaine, or mixed greens, spinach, celery, walnuts, craisins, feta cheese, avocado, chicken, grape tomatoes and balsamic and olive oil for dressing.
I was obsessed with them still am. I was only 49 years old. I am very grateful to be able to share this story with whoever is interested in reading it. Anyway, the surgery consisted of cutting the connection from the bladder to the colon, and they took 6 inches of the colon that had the diverticulosis and performed a resection of the colon.

Know if you have a nervous disorder. If you are constantly nervous or anxious, your nerves send signals to your stomach. These signals cause gurgling sounds. If you notice that you experience stomach gurgling throughout the day, regardless of diet or lifestyle changes, you may have a nervous disorder that can be addressed by a doctor. Learn food intolerance symptoms. Consuming certain food items can cause allergic reactions that cause an upset stomach and force stomach gurgling.
If you notice stomach discomfort often after eating the same kinds of food—avoid that food. The most often kind of food intolerance is lactose-intolerance. This is when dairy products cause intense stomach irritation. Notice severe indigestion, also known as dyspepsia. Upper abdominal pain, excessive belching, nausea, feeling full after a small amount of food and swelling of the abdominals are all symptoms of a more serious indigestion problem. If you experience these consistently, seek medical attention.
