I posted in your other thread about
the Philodendron - I don't know much about
it. I posted some information about
what I found to work for me (cistus incanus) but it does sound like you may be making some progress with it! Congrats and I sure hope it's true!!!
I used to bloat horribly too! And that gas would just sit there, rumbling around, never leaving me. No farting!!!! UGH! What I wouldn't have given to be able to though!!! Ha ha ha ha!!!! Fortunately, most of that is gone for me now - although I'm sure if I stopped everything I do (which is a LOT), things would be more than happy to go back to the way they were -and I'd be stuck again.
I take 1000 mgs of quercetin with breakfast (not before), but I eat a fairly easy to digest breakfast most days - 1 egg, 1 piece of toast, and a half a protein shake. I don't eat lunch, but with dinner I use 1500 mgs of quercetin because the food I eat is harder to digest - usually veggies and lean meat - or it's vegetarian. Quercetin alone helped a little bit, but it seems to be everything combined that has helped me the most, so I would encourage you to do a little more digging to find what is the exact issue you believe is going on in your gut.
For me, it's the intestinal cramping, low digestive juices, inflammation (of course!), something and biofilms/bacteria in the actual intestines - at least that's what I've narrowed down so far. I do seem to have something happening in my upper abdominal area, but can't figure out if it's large or small intestines, so I'm still working on that part!
