Question: Debbie writes,
Hi Galina, I have bacteria, inflammation of the intestines, and can only digest very low carbs and proteins. I have juiced daily for years and am a great believer in foods. I just cannot get past the indigestion pain and bloating, been working with probiotics and gut-flora from med/herbs. I too am overly underweight and would like to try the juice fasting, problem is I cannot do carrots or beets due to their higher carbs, as I get great pain. I show anti bodies against milk/soy. What do you suggest for a juice combination
Dear Debbie! Thank you for writing! Your symptoms of chronic indigestion, intestinal inflammation, pain and bloating could be caused by any of the following conditions:
- Celiac Disease
- IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
- Lactose Intolerance and/or food intolerance
- Bacterial and/or Parasitic Infection
First, you should see a gastroenterologist to identify the cause of your digestive distress.
Second, you should see a nutritionist experienced in GI problems to help you to identify your possible food intolerances.
After your food intolerances are identified, nutritionist can create an easy to digest meal plan and recommend specific gut healing supplements so you can heal you gut and gain weight. Get professional help before you decide to take any probiotics, supplements or herbs because as you were saying:” I just cannot get past the indigestion pain and bloating” despite your own experimental work with “probiotics and gut-flora from med/herbs”.
You cannot become healthy and gain weight unless you eradicate bacteria and heal your colon. I hope my explanation will help you to make a right decision.
Finally, here is my gut healing juice recipe for you:
1 potato, 3 stalks of celery, 1 small butternut squash (seeds and skin removed). Drink for 30 days on empty stomach.
I wish you peace within your gut
