Anyone
 
Food combining makes many claims for relieving and curing many ills.I was wondering if there was anyone out there who uses it successfully to help heart burn and digestive problems-GERD?
 
thanks

Hi Teri

Food combinining enthusiasts advocate never mixing carbs with protein so protein is eaten with vegetables at one meal and carbs/starch are eaten with veg at another meal.eg. chichen and veg at lunch and potatoes or pasta or rice plus veg at another. One protein meal and one starch/carb meal. Fruit is always eaten alone.

Those in favour of this way of eating explain that protein and starch have opposite digestive requirements and eating then togeth causes havoc to the digestive system. It is said to help the following;indigestion,ibs,colitis, chronic fatigue,candida and many more.

It was started by Dr William Howard Hay, an American surgeon who at 40 suffered a complete breakdown of health.The Hay diet as it is known is very popular in England.

I have been on Prevacid for five years and now its stopped working. I boned up on diet tips. So far, i am switching from white bread to organic wheat bread. Less red meat, it kind of is starting to make me sick to look at it. Chicken and turkey is better to eat anyway. But I am interested in this Hay Diet. I know that Gastrin is the culprit for cancer of the stomach and my aunt and grandmother died of it. So I need to do something about this NOW. Currently taking Glutamine for the over all health of stomach and intestines. It also is supposed to be good for weight loss. Endura Pak Guard. So far day 2. My stomach attacks are not as severe. I am hoping to eliminate my Prevacid as they are poison eventually. No wonder I have been so tired and lazy. Restless leg syndrome is getting to me too and I read this drug causes these symptoms. Well, let me know if anyone has had good luck with this wellness program of glutamine ?

Yes, glutamine is essential for stomich linning repair. I take it as well, but you may need other things like probiotics and DGL licorice chews. A diet rich in fruits and veggies helps. Stay away from soda and pasta.

Re Glutamine
 
I may be behind the times, but I'd be careful with this one, as I've never heard it recommended for this before?  It can cause problems if you have renal or liver trouble from what I've read.  It's used by muscle builders and is used to supplement a diet that is lacking in this, or for an intestinal problem.  I've just never heard of it's use by a reputable source for GERD or reflux.  Would someone mind explaining this more to me, or perhaps guiding me to a site that tells more about this for GERD?
 
Just being cautious, my middle name. lol

I don't follow the food combining that much because I rarely eat grains. I do take HCI with pepsi which helps with digestion if I do eat meat. Grains (breads, soy products, potatoes,, rice, corn yes corn is a grain etc) are energy source for bacteria. You see all foods have bacteria unless you all foods most bacteria will survive. Even then water has bacteria. My best friends who used to repair water meters had to learn all about water and it's safety. He told me all water has bacteria unless you boil them in extremely high heat. Those carbon filters don't filter out bactieria what you need to get is reverse osmois water filter unit or Ionize water machine. These will kill most of the bacteria.

If you're not allergic to yogurt and milk doesn't make your bloat cause mucus production. You should make cultured yogurt. Culture yogurt has live bacteria that kills those unfriendly bacteria in your colon. When there's too many bad bacteria inthe body and you eat some grains the parasites produces gas.

Best to eat vegetables and some fruits (not the too sweet ones. I wouldn't advise you to eat any kind of meat except fish if it's doesn't have murcury in it. Otherwise you can have almonds or make almond bread.

Soda pop and artiifical sweetners is pure poision and will make you have heart burn also. Best not to eat any processed foods period

I also take fish oil, not the cheap brand get them at your health food store and only cook with coconut oil. These are inflamatory to your body and very benefical to your health. Also eat small meals and chew your foods very well. Lack of chewing makes your stomache work harder digesting foods. I found HCI with pepsin to help a lot. I notice a difference first day when I eat some chicken.

You should consume some unrefined sea salt, it has many minerals. Also I take coral calicum with vitamin d. I suggest you start off small and work your way up.

Hello Teri,

Check out these two sites. They explain glutamine very well.

http://www.diagnose-me.com/treat/T73676.html


"Preliminary studies have shown that supplements of glutamine may protect against aspirin-induced gastric lesions and enhance healing of painful peptic ulcers.

Fresh cabbage juice has for a long time been used successfully against ulcers, probably due to its glutamine content. The amino acid glutamine works over time in doses as low as 500mg three times daily (for one month) to heal stomach and small intestine lesions. A study of ulcers found that 1600mg of glutamine per day had a 50% cure rate within 2 weeks and 92% within 4 weeks."

http://www.umm.edu/altmed/ConsSupplements/Glutaminecs.html


Now after reading it I am promted to keep up on my intake. Glutamine helps to protect the lining of the gastrointestinal tract known as the mucosa. It's not specifically used for GERD, but for the gastric areas in general.

Hope it was helpfull.

I understand caution. I don't even like x-rays at the dentist. I never take asprin either.

Thanks Alfred!

I've checked out one of the sites - will look at the other 2 when I have a chance.  Very interesting!! - I'm learning. lol 

I'm still such a fanatic about using supplementation for things that are naturally in our body and are only "depleted by illness or infection" and until that happens can be supplemented more naturally through eating foods rich in this.

"Dietary Sources

Dietary sources of glutamine include plant and animal proteins such as beef, pork and poultry, milk, yogurt, ricotta cheese, cottage cheese, raw spinach, raw parsley, and cabbage." http://www.umm.edu/altmed/ConsSupplements/Glutaminecs.html

I will continue to read and learn, Alfred - and I do appreciate your efforts here!! yeah

Big Texas Hugs, Teri tongue
