Gas Stomach Bloating and Candida

Posted December 4th, 2016 by admin and filed in bloating of stomach

Here’s the quick, down-and-dirty of what to do when facing gas stomach bloating and candida:

The first step is eat cleanly and supplement appropriately to starve the candida and support your immune system. Then you can introduce anti-fungals. and finally, you can reintroduce beneficial bacteria that were killed off when your immune system went crazy and the candida took over.

I always try and find the cause of something when I notice symptoms. Believe it or not, candida is a symptom. It’s a symptom of an immune system that isn’t strong and functioning properly. So if you deal with the underlying cause AND stop feeding the candida, you’re well on your way to health. It’s a long process though, and it takes hard work and patience.

Fighting Stress to Fight Bloating of Stomach

Posted December 4th, 2016 by admin and filed in bloating of stomach

These are some of the things that you can do to fight stress in order to fight bloating of stomach:

Firstly, get sleep! Go to bed before 10 pm, every night. If you have trouble sleeping, or don’t get a restful sleep, try melatonin before bed. It worked for me. Take plenty of Vitamin C, B-vitamins including B12, a good multiple.

You can also try adrenal glandular products (Isocort works well), but if that isn’t enough, you may need to go on hydro cortisone for awhile, to allow your adrenal glands to “rest” and build up their reserves again. This can take anywhere from 2 months to 2 years. I’ve been on it for almost a year now, and am currently weaning off, slowly.

Make sure you get plenty of protein in your meals throughout the day, low carbs/low-no sugar.

Try to avoid stress (ha!) Or at least figure out how to manage it, with deep-breathing, essential oils, rescue remedy, etc. Switch from regular salt to Celtic or Redmond’s sea salt, and use it! You’re adrenal glands are responsible for your electrolyte balance, and when they are not functioning properly, your sodium levels go wonky. magnesium is also very important (and also helps with the fibro pain).

what is bloated stomach?

There are several major causes of a bloated stomach all of which can easily be fixed.  You will be able to stop stomach bloating and get your flat stomach back by making several small changes to your nutritional diet.

There are many causes of stomach bloating such as intestinal gas, constipation, air being taken in when eating, and by eating certain foods. Some people may even suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) which is a common disorder that causes bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation, and stomach cramping and pain.

There are several quick fixes which can stop stomach bloating. One of the most common causes of a bloated stomach is constipation. Constipation can be cured by slowly increasing your fiber intake by adding more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and nuts to your daily diet. A psyllium husk tablet can be taken before meals to increase fiber and help reduce constipation. Psyllium husk is all natural fiber and is not harmful to take on a regular basis. An additional benefit is that when it is taken before meals, it will give you a full feeling and you won’t eat as much.

You should drink lots of water – aim for one glass every hour that you are awake. Exercise is also very important for fighting off constipation. Try to walk for at least a half an hour each day.

Eating fast can cause you to take in air which will bloat your stomach. Slow down when eating and thoroughly chew your food. You should not swallow until your food is almost completely liquid. To train yourself to eat slower, put down your fork after each bite. It will help if you don’t watch television while eating. You need to concentrate on your food and your eating habits. You will find that when you slow down and chew your food completely that you will also eat less.

Another cause of a bloated stomach is too much salt. Most processed and canned foods contain excessive amounts of salt. Read all food labels and avoid the ones with high sodium. Also be careful of how much salt you add to your foods.

Some vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower can cause belly bloating if you are not used to eating them on a regular basis.  Beans can also causes bloated stomach. But instead of eliminating these from your diet, you should add them slowly and eat them more often, so your system gets used to them and they don’t cause gas.  Bean can be used until your system adjusts to them.

Instead of eating three large meals, break your meals into five or six smaller meals. It is much easier on your digestive system and it keeps you from bloating.

Artificially sweetened drinks, food, and carbonated drinks should be avoided.  Fructose, especially high fructose corn syrup can cause your stomach to bloat. Read labels and avoid it.

Probiotic yogurts and pineapple will reduce stomach bloating. Eat a probiotic yogurt or take a probiotic tablet every day. Also eating pineapple on a regular basis will help with digestion.

Following a healthy eating plan is essential to your good health.  Now that you know the causes of a bloated stomach, you can avoid these problems and get your flat stomach back again.

Bloating of Stomach and Grapefruit Seed Extract

Grapefruit seed extract as a way to fight against a bloating of stomach:

I think the Grapefruit seed extract is working beautifully. It’s supposed to be good for lots of problems, so I figure that while I use it to get rid of the candida problems it can work on those other things too…win

The pau d’arco in capsule form is fantastic. If you don’t drink enough water with it you burp up the taste though…so I chug the water when I take them.

I’ve started cutting back on the fruit and fruit juicing this week. I’m severely tired from cutting back. Drinking fresh juiced fruit gives me so much energy. But oh well…I want to get rid of this candida problem.

I’m still craving the parmesan cheese LOL. Just thinking about slicing off a piece and putting it in my mouth makes my mouth actually water still.

A bloated Stomach and Vitamin C

Posted December 2nd, 2016 by admin and filed in bloating of stomach

this is why it is important to take vitamin C when feeling a bloated stomach:

The thing is, there are some supplements that you just can’t get in adequate amounts from food. Vit C is a good example. Our bodies don’t synthesize vitamin C anymore, and the amounts we need just aren’t available in food. Even a healthy person should take 3,000-5,000mg of Vit C per day to maintain Vit C stores in case of sickness. I’m pretty sure that none of us could eat enough broccoli in a day to get that kind of Vit C.
