REALLY foul, rotting, decaying tasting burps

so the saga of the foul-tasting burps continues. In the past i've had these really foul rotting tasting burps. I swear, it tastes like something created by H. P. Lovecraft died in my stomach and is giving off toxic fumes. (I call it the "charnal winds") often accomanied by frequent, watery diarrhea and bloating. I had it the day before yesterday, and then it went away, now it's back. ANd it's not hte first time it's recurred. Have any of you had anything similar, what's the cause, what can I do to stop it, and what can I do to prevent it?

I saw the nurse at my college's clinic, she said it was just gastrointeritis, reccomended the BRAT diet Prioslec OTC, gave me a sample of some antidiarrheal medicine, and told me to avoid greasy foods...I would like to go to a doctor and maybe get a stomach culture or run some other tests, but my insurance MAYBE covers a cut finger

Any suggestions as to what feeds good and bad flora? I've heard that sugar feeds bad and vegetables feed good, but what else is there?

yep I would definitely recommend the above. broth fast with a ton of spices added to the broth, take a few spoonfulls of coconut oil, and try out a probiotic like garden of life brand "primal defense"...take three doses a day and see if that doesn't get your digestion cleared out. a few other things to consider is making simle meals like a large bowl of fatty meaty stew for breakfast lunch and dinner for a while and taking a digestive enzyme containing pancreatin

Or it could be gastroeneritis... that leads to SIBO. Am I scaring you? I hope not...

Watery diarrhea and bloating? SIBO.

If they smell like sulfur (rotten egg), could be SIBO.

I would also not be afraid to go to the doctor. There are some things that doctors can adequately diagnose and cure. #againstthepaleomindset

In my opinion, this post stinks of a parasite and that shouldn't be left to fester.

Just because we are trying to live a paleo lifestyle doesn't mean we should negate professional, doctoral advice in the case of something of this sort. Go see yours!

If I had something like this, I would fast for a while to clean out whatever is inside and rotting.

Then , ginger, garlic, lemon and tumeric are all good internal cleansers.

Do you relate it to something specific you eat?

Sounds like a bad mix of gut flora and fauna. You need to tilt the natural selection processes in your intestines. Diet-wise, starve the bad guys, feed the good guys.

But I'd probably start by fasting for 24 hours or more to get things back on even keel.

Hi i agree with the fasting, however i have the same problem, I went to my doctor and im getting an edoscopy to find out whats going on. If its like me you most likely you have an ulcer or just some a type of bad bacteria, try an alkiline based diet. Also one thing that truly saved me is Alka seltza, in australia you can only get it chemist warehouse.....

i can stress how important it is to go to your doctor.
