1 day of mea
1 day of meat + fat + water most probably won't crash you.
You may then find out if that calms down your tummy.
Sounds like you have definitely been around the block a few times.
Best wishes, and thanks for continuing to share what you learn so that we all can benefit.
It's so frustrating to being 'doing everything right' and still have issues.
Honestly, the GAPS thing hasn't worked for me or a friend of mine either. The raw meat finally did -- hence, I'm here. Yet I believe the knowledge base of GAPS is basically sound for those with gut issues.
Wai Diet guru does not recommend raw cod at all. He thinks it has too much parasites.
Try to find raw meat / raw fish that you are sure of, and try doing just raw meat for a few days like 2 to 3, no fruits, no veggies. See if that calms your guts.
You very well CAN get diarrhea from probiotics.
This was the case with my autistic nephew on the GAPS program.
It certainly can be frustrating when our guts don't cooperate with us! I wish you all the best in your journey to learn more about this.
From our experience with the GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) diet of Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, if one's gut is leaky and unhealthy, probiotics need to be added very gradually to prevent reactions. And foods need to be very easy to digest (here's were some lightly cooked and pureed foods come in) in the beginning stages. Fruits and veges that feed the wrong bacteria will aggravate the conditions.
According to GAPS -- while raw animal products are most easy to digest --- the raw fruits and veges are more difficult. Better to juice or cook well. The fiber and starch feed the wrong bacteria which contribute to a leaky gut (and thus immune reactions). The so-called 'bad' bacteria (which should be balanced by the 'good' ones) release toxins that weaken the integrity of the gut wall. Other yeasts and fungus can actually drill holes through the gut lining. In the GAPS program, they are careful to select SCD compliant fruits and veges and cook them well in the beginning. I believ this kind of thing has been discussed before in this forum.
The gut needs lots of time to heal -- and it will.
I would encourage anyone seeking a thorough treatment of gut health to get Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride book. Her program is healing the gut in order to successfully cure autism and other learning/mental disorders. She is an advocate of raw meats and raw animal products --- but in the beginning stages of her program, the body may not tolerate raw.
On a further note: Did anyone read Chris Kresser's recent blog on the book, An Epidemic of Absence?
it's a more in-depth look at the role of parasites and bacteria in our health. AND it appears the leading edge research doesn't believe that probiotics actually re-populate the gut. Rather, . . .
Just throwing this out there. The types of carbs in fruits, (most) veggies, and certain nuts are simple sugars. Which actually makes then easier to absor b. Since they're already single sugars, they get absorbed immediately. Complex carbs are links of sugar that need to be separated/broken down before they're absorbed.
The scd is actually mainly simple sugars, and that helps a lot of people. Something else to consider is that all complex carbs have to be broken down into simple sugars to be absorbed. Otherwise they go to the colin and feed bacteria.
It is the reverse. A great compatible with you probiotic should stop all diarrhoea, stop all stomach pain, give you a solid quiet gut, can help you digest almost anything, stop you from farting, give you nice solid comfortable poops... good probiotics will help you gain weight.
In my country we have papayas, watermelons, melons, guava, durian, hydrating green oranges. And raw root crops like singkamas and yacon.
Suiren, how are your stools now? Does fruit not cause any digestive upset or acne?jessica
What makes you think procreation is the only goal of sexual love? It must have another useful function, otherwise already pregnant women wouldn’t have any sexual drive and men wouldn’t have any either for pregnant women.
Almost all the animal except bonobos, humans and perhaps dolphins and whales have periods of rut, between which they have no sexual activity. So, there is something special with us, humans.
Ever thought about that? Don’t tell me the other purpose is pleasure as sexologists say because an animal wasting its energy for pleasure only would have been wiped out by natural selection.
nice tips. this is the recipe i was talking about.
Suiren, you can just search the internet. The first link that I found said: "Adult women need about 46 grams protein a day."
Which sounds about right. So 100-200 grams meat/fish would be enough for you.
maybe just try and add more offal anyway, if you can get it. and think about digestive enzymes and those probiotics I mentioned, if anything they will help you digest the carbohydrates you are eating and hopefully cut down on the gas. I think if your guts heals enough from this you will be able to slowly taper off carbs without losing weight and also stop supplementing, this could take a year of good steady healing tho.
Bio eggs are fine; I buy free-range at a farmers market, but have never had problems with the bio eggs either. But check at the better shops, the supermarket where I buy also has pastured eggs, and actually from two different producers.
If you have problems finding good meat, just eat it less often.. and you don't need to eat tons of meat and protein anyway, especially considering you're a woman at 50kg.
The fear of PUFA in fish regarding the thyroid sounds unfounded to me, but maybe there is some connection, I couldn't say for sure.
Raw grass fed is best
Whether raw grain fed is better than seared grass fed, I can't really say.
What problems are you having with raw grass fed.
I am going to suggest that you work on getting offal instead of carbs and upping fats to keep your weight up.
Do you get enough minerals Suiren, I forget, do you eat any seaweeds? Maine Coast and Frontier Brand are legit and should be added to meals/water. Kelp is especially good to heal the gut as it is mucilaginous but also has iodine, so it doesn't cause bacteria overgrowth in the intestines.
I love to consider and observe things like face mapping and iridology, whether or not its truly legit I cannot tell. In myself I do see some coincidences, but they may be just that! I still think its interesting:)
I would try eating the salmon. If you start to notice negative symptoms from it, then back off. Otherwise, it's wild and fresh, and that's waaaay better than grainfed beef.
