GAS / FLATULENCE               

  

                Gas or flatulence is linked to a diet high in refined food, highly cooked food and very little natural fiber to stimulate peristalsis; often intestinal infection (may be parasitic).  Frequent intestinal gas indicates putrefaction of food, such as incomplete digestion of protein.  Digestive enzymes are critical for digestive support of highly cooked foods.

                Regular bowel eliminations (at least once/day) are necessary so that the intestines do not allow absorption of toxic waste matter back into the systemic circulation thus creating gas as well as many other problems such as: skin problems (acne and discoloring), fatigue, kidney stress and more.  Hence the saying "Death begins in the colon."  In addition if fecal matter sits in the colon for too long of a time then toxic pockets can form that also contribute to the formation of gas. 

                Improper bowel flora ecology can also contribute to gas.  Regular intake of probiotics ("good bacteria") is necessary for good bowel health.  A toxic liver and or toxic gallbladder can contribute to creating a toxic colon and often frequent gas.  When the liver/gallbladder function is abnormal, lack of bile and failure to synthesize critical compounds can lead to undigested fat and other toxic chemical compounds entering the colon, disrupting gut ecology and creating gas.  Liver/Gallbladder cleansing is often needed to help eliminate this problem.

                Remedies for gas include:  intestinal cleanses, Betaine HCL to increase the ability to break down food, digestive enzymes to further brake down hard to digest foods, slight dietary changes while the body is rebuilding its supplies of enzymes, and an increase in natural fiber to help move waste through the intestines and prevent putrefaction.

                Other info: foul smelling gas is usually due to incomplete protein digestion.  Mild or non-smelling gas is usually due to incomplete carbohydrate digestion.
