Do you suffer from bloating or constipation? Perhaps you’ve been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease or colitis. Find out how nutrition could help your gut issue.
Nutrition Care for Gut Issues
Many people come to my practice either because they have an excess of gases or they are having a presentation of constipation and diarrhea. Many times, they also feel bloated. Some clients have been diagnosed with leaky gut, IBD, Crohn’s disease or colitis. Or, they haven’t been diagnosed, but they already feel that things are not going right, but they don’t know why.
Clients often see the connection between foods that they’re eating and how it’s presented in the bathroom in the form and shape of their feces.
Is It Food Allergies or Sensitivities?
Clients who come to see me are trying to figure out if they have food allergies or food sensitivities. So that will be one layer of the journey. But then after discovering that, they try to determine how they can stop this uncomfortable, unpleasant presentation, whatever it is. A lot of times it’s so surprising even for them that they’re not having any food sensitivity or food allergy, although they did remove so many foods out of their diet and it is the digestion mainly.
Improve Digestion and Diversify Your Diet
When we are improving digestion, immediately what happened is that they can reintroduce more foods that they avoided at the beginning assuming that it’s related to food sensitivity.
I have enough examples to say that I have people who are coming to practice, and they ended up eating maybe a group of two to five foods. By the end of the process, they see an improvement in their digestion. They understand the difference between a meal that is creating an immune response versus a digestion response. Clients can then increase so much more food into their diet and enjoy the variety that we have.
I’m trying to distinguish between food that’s making or creating an immune response or digestion or both. Any food is important equally; in my opinion, there is no superfood. All foods are similarly crucial for our health.
It’s essential to rotate and diversify your diet so you can enjoy the whole kingdom of vitamins and minerals, including the seeds of lemon, for example.
Serious Conditions That Can Result From Food Choices
Everything is equally important, but if you cannot have it, we need to make sure that it’s not activating antibody production, which involves the immune system. That’s because it takes the individual into a different set of presentation that can lead to autoimmune diseases and colon cancer. That can include brain degeneration that can progress to hormonal and mental health issues. So that’s one way to look at that. And then if it’s just digestive why not improve the ability of our intestines and colon to better digest our foods?
