If you have digestive pain or distress right after you finish eating, you may not have enough digestive enzymes. The media and conventional medicine has everyone believing that the cause of digestive pain is too much acid.
The truth is that you do not have enough active acid to digest the food in your stomach. Without the right amount of digestive acid in your gut, the food that you eat is literally rotting inside you, causing you to have digestive pain. The fix is simple: a whole food digestive aid, which is available at TLC Holistic Wellness.
A correctly working digestive system is key to balancing hormones in your body. Without proper digestion your body cannot make get the nutritients that it needs to make the hormones that give you energy, or allow you to feel calm and ready for sleep.
If you get digestive pain or discomfort three or four hours after you eat, digestive enzymes or whole food beets can help. Another indication of a lack of digestive enzymes/minerals is if you have lost your taste for meat. If you have bloating two or three hours after eating, it may be even be gall bladder distress.
Digestive distress with green peppers, onions, radishes and cucumbers could be gall bladder stagnation. The holistic approach is to find and supply the missing nutrients in your diet. Consult with a clinical nutritionist/holistic physician to determine what is missing in your diet.
Prescription medications are commonly used for digestive distress, but they have some very serious side effects. A more effective option is to add supplements of natural plant enzymes and minerals to help your body make its own enzymes. Another simple solution is to avoid eating proteins, such as meat, which needs an acid environment, in combination with starch (like potatoes), which needs an alkaline pH.
If you pass gas or have chronic digestive pain, think about what you are eating together. Do not end your meals with fruit, as this causes fermentation of your food. To keep the digestive enzymes that you do have working well, avoid drinking cold beverages with your meals.
In addition, patients with Blood Type A appear to have more digestive distress, along with a poor metabolism. They also get cold sores due to a lack of calcium absorption, often associated with a lack of digestive enzymes.. Regularly include sesame seeds, almonds and mixed greens in your diet to get the calcium you need, along with digestive enzymes.
