ok so this is a gross question i have never been able to voluntarily burp and i very rarely do on accident (and it is always tiny). after i eat or drink, i usually have to gag myself a while later to let gas escape from my stomach. i am always... (more)
After getting Diarrhea from bad dried fruit which lasted two days i fixed it by eating just veg and sum meat ,my digestion cleared up but i was hit with a sudden terrible fatigue , its very strange as i can barely get up the stairs its so bad , it... (more)
Unlike some folks here, I didn't start paleo because of digestive problems. However, since beginning about a month ago, I am having discomfort in my belly after eating. I was vegan for 5 years prior, and vegetarian for 8 total, so the biggest... (more)
After 7 weeks of strict paleo (apart from 1 packet of quavers) I had a meal with friends last night and I ate non-paleo. 4 courses and we didn't finish eating till gone 10pm. All night I have kept waking up, feeling wobbly/shaky, very... (more)
I started taking Adrenal glandulars (http://www.vitaminshoppe.com/store/en/browse/sku_detail.jsp?id=NZ-7003) for my Adrenal fatigue and Probiotics (http://drohhiraprobiotics.com/) for my IBS close to 2 years ago. About 3 months ago I ran out and... (more)
Dear Sirs, Some may consider me to be lacking knowledge on this subject however I wish to ask whether sweetcorn is considered to be "paleo"? I would also like to ask if anybody else has experienced stomach problems with regards to consuming... (more)
So, I've been improving somewhat with the GERD but am now wondering if I might have a stomach ulcer. Pain above sternum/sternum, bloating and aching. No dark stools or anything, but I was curious as to if that matched up to symptoms. I'm not... (more)
I've been low carb Primal (paleo plus cream and cheese, and 50g or less of carbs) for a few weeks. Prior to that, I was mostly WAPF, with some sugar. I've been feeling dizzy and lightheaded after I eat. Usually within 5 minutes of eating. I'm... (more)
Could you get a blood glucose meter and check your fasting, then before a meal, right when you feel dizzy and then an hour and 2 after? Rule out blood sugar issues (even while vlc, it can happen) then we can it down.
A friend of mine swears by this stuff, Equalactin, its actually a laxative, but on the box it clearly says its for Nervous stomach and used for IBS to restore the water balance in the bowels to combat both loose bowels and constipation. She... (more)
Hiiiii, So I've recently been introduced to the wodners of seeds (like the munchy seeds and nut doctor brands) and I've fallen madly in love. Only problem being, I've not had... ahem... my usual movements since I've started eating them. I know... (more)
Yeah, I'm sorry to say, but seeds do not differ greatly from grains with respect to digestibility; they're rather harsh on the intestines. If you're incapable of limiting them to a handful as a snack, it's probably best to avoid them altogether. I... (more)
I unfortunately had to start taking antibiotics a few days ago for an infection in my toe. I held off as long as I could and tried to use some natural things to get rid of it but it just got worse. The antibiotics are sure doing a number on my... (more)
I felt fine this morning. Great even. I cooked up some grass-fed liver from my local farmer and it sat like a rock in my stomach. A half hour later, I was sweating and running to the bathroom. My stomach is in knots and I feel miserable. What... (more)
hubby and I were ...uh ahem ... enjoying some coconut oil in the bedroom,... I maybe ingested 1/2 a tablespoon of straight high quality oil. 5 mins later my stomach was rumbling like I just drank a cup of milk (latose intolerant). Then I realized... (more)
I've been eating paleo for 6 months now. I don't make any exceptions in my day to day diet, but when I cheat (maybe 2 days a month; usually due to a social event), I eat whatever. Anyway, one of the big positive changes I had with paleo was the... (more)
Hi all, after reading Chris Kessner's post on Kefir, I thought I would try the Organic Lactose Free kind I found at Whole Foods. I was wondering what kind of experiences you have had with it. It's only been two days but my stomach has been... (more)
My daughter has had problems with too much acid production in her stomach since she was very little. When she was 4 and 5 she would complain about tummy aches. I thought that she was using it as an excuse to not eat food that she didn't like. ... (more)
Hi everyone. I have been paleo since 1st January 2012 but still feel bloated and my tummy seems more sensitive to foods than it was before! I dot eat any grains or dairy, not even raw and I haven't eaten a single cake or sweet or any processed... (more)
Hello, I've been eating primal/paleo since around Thanksgiving (7 weeks). I tried paleo in March of last year but that didn't last long. I've gone from weighing 225lbs down to 205lbs which I'm pretty pumped about. I seem to have more energy,... (more)
Maybe it would help to eat more live sauerkraut, yogurt and pickles and skip some of the nuts for awhile. Sounds like your intestinal bacteria are confused right now!
I'm trying to eat a mostly high fat and high protein diet, but ever since I started it I have no appetite. I'm often nauseous and can only eat once a day. I feel a ton of pressure in my gut, to the point where I have to lay on my stomach to... (more)
It's good you are seeing a doctor. I agree with Nance. Another thing you have to do is STOP being on a restrictive diet. You have to eat and if it's non-paleo food that's better than starving. Ice cream, milk shakes, anything. Have you ever... (more)
Hi everyone, I'm wondering if anyone here dealt with gastritis and how they were able to heal their stomach? My current protocol is: aloe vera, DGL, L-glutamine & arabinogalactan powder mixture (twice daily on empty stomach) probiotics... (more)
Has anyone seen this rebuttal to Poliquin about the need for HCl supplements for digestive functioning? It was originally posted in a yahoo group by an actual (gasp) gastroenterologist and made its way to T-nation. Anyone have any rebuttals to... (more)
hypochlorhydria, low stomach acid, is pretty poorly studied and more research focuses on infections rather than digestion however there are a lot of studies on PPIs, which cause hypochlorhydria purposefully and eventually do lead to B12... (more)
I know there are lots of poop questions on here but none of them really help me out. I've brought this up before when I first started Paleo and had people telling me to up my carbs, up my fats, lower my fats, lower my protein, eat stems, etc.,... (more)
My latest post on my blog was about this. I struggled with loose stool a lot on strict paleo and it subsided when I would eat an apple sauce/banana/pumpkin/broth diet. Finally I got it to go away altogether by just well...not eating paleo. I still... (more)
