Do you suffer from horrible gas and bloating after almost every single meal? You know what I mean…
You sit down at the table in your skinny jeans feeling great and then the second after a little bit of food goes into your stomach you blow up like a balloon and feel like your organs are being crushed under pounds of pressure.
I would like to explain why this happens so that you can take the steps to reverse it.
Like many of my clients this used to be my daily reality. I never wore jeans or tight outfits. I basically lived in baggy sweatshirts to cover up my pregnant looking belly.
If you are experiencing very intense and instantaneous bloating after meals – one of two things could be your problem. Once you know what these problems are you will know how to address and reverse them…
- The first thing would be that you are eating too soon after your previous meal or that your intestine is sluggish and undigested rotting foods are present in your stomach while you are eating new foods. When you eat a new meal it expects a clear path to get through so that it can be broken down quickly. If this breakdown is stalled in anyway (aka blockage by other foods), then the food you just ate will literally rot in the warm hot environment of your intestine and cause putrefactive gas as a result of this rot. It is the gas that you have that not only smells, but feels very big and uncomfortable when its in the gut.
- The second reason this could be happening is that you have other microbes living in your intestine that are eating your food after you do. As these bacteria or parasites eat your food, break down sugars, and digest, they inhibit your own digestion by slowing down the process and excreting their own digestive gasses, which then get stuck in your gut. Once the body has been incarcerated by putrefactive gas it then becomes impossible for the food to digest because the gas blocks bowel function. That is when more putrefaction takes place and the cycle continues.
In order to get out of this cycle and not wear maternity clothing everywhere you go, the best thing to do is to determine what is going on in your intestine. Then reduce sugars and simple carbohydrates for a period of time to kill off harmful bacteria.
The second suggestion would be to simplify your meals and to follow a food combining chart. Try not to eat complex meals close together, which will create a back flow on the intestine. For more information you can explore my website or send me an e-mail to [email protected] for help.
