I am a Reg Nurse and have had gut issues for years. Severe constipation, bloating, pain and generally sick. I have followed a high protein diet for the past 2 year with steamed veggies, goat kefir and goat yogurt. I was eatin fermented veggies but seems to be too much roughage for me. I was diagnosed with severe IBS. My gut will have so much fermentation in it that I am on the ground in pain(esp. right flank) and all I do is tap that area and start to belch which brings some relief, it is worse upon waking. But, this is all with a no grain diet. I am wondering now if I am having a hard time with protein putrification. I take enzymes, HCL, don't drink with my meals, no fruit. I am at a loss! Oh, I also make bone broth, no processed foods and do take probiotics. Thank you for any help and sirection you can give me. I also work part time at a health food store which has led me to the steps I have taken. Thank you again, Kathy

less veggies and protein and more fat. you might also try making your own dry aged meats by letting them sit out on a rack in the fridge for a week or longer, the enzymes in the meat will start to break it down for you. you can make jerky this way, deer/elk/bison works very well for this. its the best probiotic you can take.
