Tonawanda News — Then the list of foods causing this feeling will eventually grow, sending you to your doctor. He or she may test you for Celiac’s disease, but unless you are a severely gluten-intolerant person, things may not look so bad and nothing is found. Pain is something, don’t blow it off.
When I remove wheat and dairy from the diet, I usually get an email within a week or two stating there has been a miraculous cure. Sounds so simple and yet when it comes to your health and well being, the diet is ultimately ignored.
A common misunderstanding is that you are producing too much acid when in fact the opposite is usually true in almost 80 percent of people who suffer from stomach pain. By further inhibiting gastric acid production, you are unable to breakdown foods properly, leaving you at risk for B-12 deficiency and a general state of malnutrition.
Here’s what I recommend:
• Eat more raw foods.
• Consider eliminating wheat and dairy products for at least two weeks. You will most likely have your answer.
• The most common offenders for “A” blood types are wheat, while dairy is a no for the “O” type blood group.
• Eat for your blood type. This will eliminate the food that causes digestive difficulties.
• Take digestive enzymes with all cooked meals (and raw if you have a hard time digesting them).
• Consider betaine HCL tablets or raw organic cider vinegar to assist you in digesting meals.
• Avoid beverages while eating, as this slows or “dilutes” the digestive process.
• Fix the problem; don’t just put a band-aid on it hoping it will go away.
• Eat real food. Avoid diet, sugar-free, fat-free, man-made foods. Nothing you put in your mouth should have a long ingredient list.
