How to Overcome Any Gastric Distress When Beginning Your Natural diet
When we start eating a lot more raw fruits and vegetables, existing stagnant putrid and fermentive, gaseous food matter is flushed out of the bowel due to the energizing effect of the raw sugars and the high fiber and water content. Also, when raw fruit sugars contact existing bacteria-laden morbid matter from cooked starches and meat and dairy products, the fruit sugars will ferment and gas will evolve. this will pass when the bowels are clean. If we do not follow proper food combining guidelines, fermentation and putrefication will continue. Digestive difficulties during the initial transition/cleanout phase will be allevaited by eating very simple, properly combined foods. Raw salads with grated vegetables will help sweep out the bowels and eventually fruit sugar and protein foods will digest cleanly. Pure water, fruit juices and smoothies help us clean out as well. When the bowels are clean and the detoxification action calms down, digestion will be a quiet and thorough process as long as healthful eating principles are maintained. Remember: simple eating is always best.
