Digesting Beans and Things

Gas forms from improper digestion, which shows that body chemistry is imbalanced. Either to much or too little hydrochloric acid in the stomach causes it, according to author Nancy Appleton, PhD, author of Lick the Sugar Habit.  She points to an overactive liver or an underactive pancreas being responsible … but most of us don’t have a way to check that, so she suggests the following ways to help correct the toot:

  • Limit your protein intake to no more than two ounces for any meal.
  • Eat meals slowly.
  • Eliminate foods –such as beans (especally baked and lima), onions, radishes, turnips, yams, parsnips, lettuce hearts, and sugar – which are known to cause gas in some people.
  • Chew each bite of food well, at least twenty times.
  • Eat fruit between meals only.

She says that allergy to foods might cause the gas – but not everyone knows what foods they are reacting to.  She gives readers a plan.

We add probiotics, fibres and aloe to the list of digestion-helpers.
