What Fruit and Vegetables Ferment Less in Your Stomach?


fermentation in stomachIf you suffer from excess intestinal gas or Irritable Bowel Syndrome, you’ll want to read this informative article in the March 20 2013 Townsend Letter.

The authors target SIBO (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth) as a common but often-ignored cause of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).

“Since bacteria use carbohydrates as their energy source and ferment them to gas, a low-carbohydrate diet can directly reduce symptoms by decreasing the amount of gas produced.

Definition carbohydrate: Any of a large group of compounds (including sugars, starch, and cellulose)

Quick Tip: Addicted to Sugar and Bread?

Reduce cravings significantly with up to 1000 mcg of CHROMIUM (that is 5 x 200 mcg capsules – start with one and work yourself up to 5 if needed (many times 5 caps are needed to have effect) – talk to ND first especially if diabetic) and  a MULTI B VITAMIN like Dr. Clark Store Vitamin B100. I promise that it will be much easier to then cut out the sugar and bread.  Dr. Oz also points out you should DETOX YOUR LIVER in order to reduce carb cravings.  More on sugar and bread addiction in upcoming blogs. 

Reducing carbohydrates may also reduce the overall bacterial load as the food supply shrinks, though formal studies to validate this are lacking. These diets decrease polysaccharides, oligosaccharides, and disaccharides by eliminating all grains, starchy vegetables, lactose, sweeteners other than honey, and in the beginning, beans.

Many patients experience a rapid and significant decrease in symptoms after starting a SIBO diet. The Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) has been reported to have an 84% success rate for inflammatory bowel disease, a condition commonly associated with SIBO.” You don't have to have a full blown SIBO to benefit from adjusting your diet for a few weeks.

Symptoms of SIBO include:

•    bloating/ abdominal gas 
•    flatulence, belching
•    abdominal pain, discomfort, or cramps
•    constipation, diarrhea or a mixture of the two
•    heartburn
•    nausea
•    malabsorption: steatorrhea, anemia
•    systemic symptoms: headache, joint/muscle pain, fatigue, rosacea
A noteworthy diagnostic tool was discussed: Hydrogen/methane breath testing. Stool testing is reported to have no value in diganosing SIBO. 

Naturopathic Doctors that authored the article point out four ways to treat SIBO:

  • Specific Carbohydrate Diet or Gut and Psyhology Syndrome Diet
  • Elimination Diet - those are predigested nutrients mixed with water and used in hospitals
  • Antibiotics - Rifaximin
  • Herbal Antibiotics - Allium sativum, Hydrastis canadensis, and other berberine-containing herbs, Origanum vulgare, cinnamon, and Azadirachta indica
