Coffee and Gut Irritation

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created March 22, 2013 at 12:23 PM

I recently went to a naturopath doctor for a blood and saliva test. He has me on test and progesterone to help regain my cycle and my adrenal were worn therefore he has me on adrenamax. I wanted to state this as I am unsure if my stress level is causing my concern or my food.

I follow a very paleo friendly diet but have found myself completely bloated. My 2 vices are coffee in the am with simply stevia to sweeten. Depending on the temp outside I may have up to 3-4 cups to keep myself warm. I also got into the habit years ago of having a Casein Protein shake before bed and absolutely love the taste of it. Does anyone have experience with either of these causing bloating and gut irritation? Again, it may be that my stress levels are through the roof causing extreme bloating and a sense of discomfort.

I don't know that blog by the way. I just googled cross-reactivity and looked for a list.

http://blog.primohealthcoach.com/blog/bid/79586/18-Gluten-Cross-Reactive-Foods Casein is on the list, so is coffee. Casein, however, actually is a protein while coffee has protein in it. It is also the more likely suspect because of how many of us are fine with coffee but not fine with wheat or milk.

Actually, the protein is coffee is very similar to gluten, so if you are gluten sensitive it is probably the coffee.

Once I stopped having casein protein my bloating/discomfort vanished .. would be worth removing and seeing how you feel.

Drop the Casein. It is the worst of the milk proteins and probably responsible for your problems.

What else are you eating? Lots of Paleo-friendly foods can cause gas, like high-FODMAP fruits and veg, eggs and nuts.

But yes, stress can also certainly impair digestion and cause bloating.
