pb4 I understand what you are saying, perfectly. I take bromelian, and curcuminoids daily, I also take digestive enzymes, Im not claiming that BROMELIAN causes any disturbance, its other substances in the fruit.. like the Sugars that need to be digested and absorbed quickly...
So, I to am sorry for the confusion, I should of clarified, I take bromelian and digestive support after / during my meals, but eating the entire fruit can cause gas, bloating, and discomfort becuase it doesnt get to the intestines for absorption, instead it sits and rots and putrifies, but ofcourse, believe or do what you think works. Im only here to share my opinions and experiences. =]
fruitgirl, I understand where you are comming from, the only way I could share anything with you is thru the internet obviously, so I have no problem sharing websites etc. that show proper food combining theory, research, studies, evidence, etc. etc. I also have no problem sending you an E-book I have, no charge obviously, wich has pleanty of doctors, licensed in dietary nutrition, medical health, who work with the raw food diet, have helped heal, or sorry I will say bring many patients into remission, following a frutarian diet.. I dont know how else I can really prove any of this to you, other then the studies, research etc. I have read and explored online, I guess its been my experience that what I am claiming and speaking about REally is effective and has helped me greatly.. maybe you can try it as well?
It would only take one day and Im sure you would be able to tell a difference or not..
all I know, personal experience, I have cleared all ulcerations, and all my inflamamtion by following a dominant fruitarian diet, and proper food combining.. as ivy6 stated I agree with her, there is research to both sides of the story.. Ive even read a website called biblelife.com that claims an all red meat diet and very little veggies is the way to cure IBD, ad that fruits and grains and carbs/starchs are unacceptable to the human body.. so I guess its just what catches your eye, and combines well with your experience.. ya know?
I have no problem with fruit. I eat fruit all day till around 3pm, and that is all.. I know there is a big difference between fruit sugar and refined processed sugar..
Im saying, that your body cannot digest protein, fats, dairy, breads, grains, and sugar(fruit) at once...
your body secretes different digestive juices in your stomach, we only have one stomach.. and when you eat different foods, it must digest them, at different rates, with different digestive juices, fruit does not need to sit in the stomach for very long, it goes to the smaller intestine where it is broken down and absorbed, wich doesnt take much time at all, becuase it is sugar. every food is ultimatly broken down into sugar/amino acids and absorbed in the smaller intestine, and held up in the stomach for digestion when there is an excess of food..
when you eat these sugars they sit on top of meat, meat takes 4 - 6 hours to digest thru the stomach and into the smaller intestine, fruit in dark moist place like the stomach will turn into alcohol, and putrify and rot etc.
This is why a lot of people experience bloating, digestive distress, GAS, discomfort and smelly bowel movements..
You can research this all you want a the library, just google proper food combining and you will get a much better idea of what this is about.. but its not crazy, its has Lots of evidence, maybe you just gotta try it for one day, and see how it goes for you..
