GOT GAS?

Here’s why and what to do…

Gas 101

Reason for gas

1. You didn’t chew your food well enough. Chewing your food is the first stage of digestion. Saliva contains an enzyme called amylase which is used to digest carbohydrates. Chewing also stimulates digestive enzyme production in the stomach to digest proteins and fats from your meal. If you don’t chew your food well, partially digested food will go through the GI tract and ferment, causing unwanted bloating and gas.

Solution: Chew chew chew your food. It’s been said you should chew your food 23 times before swallowing. Or another way of thinking is chew until your food is like baby food mush in your mouth before you swallow. Again, the first stage of digestion starts in the saliva with an enzyme called amylase. Amylase is an enzyme used to digest carbohydrates. So it’s imperative that you chew and mix your saliva with your food before you swallow.

Product suggestion: Digestive Enzymes

2. Another reason for gas may be an overgrowth of a sugar demanding bacteria called Candida albicans. This bacteria is ruthless and feeds off of sugar! As a matter of fact it literally craves sugar and if you have a Candida overgrowth in your gut it can cause bloating and gas.

Solution: Create an unfriendly environment for Candida. Meaning incorporate foods that candida does not like. This includes garlic, oregano, vegetables and protein. Minimize fruit intake and eliminate breads and sugar.

Product suggestions: Capryllic acid, Oregano, probiotic supplements. I have a fabulous Candida Albicans protocol, please text.

3. Poor elimination. You should have a bowel movement 20-30 minutes after each meal. Yes, I repeat you should have a bowel movement 20-30 minutes after breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you don’t then you’re literally accumulating leftovers in your colon. In this situation gas is your least concern. These leftovers will ferment and eventually rot creating a perfect breeding ground for unwanted bacteria parasites etc.
