The Top 10 Causes of Your Digestive Symptoms

Over the last 5 years, I’ve analysed health histories and lab test results from hundreds of clients worldwide. The vast majority of the clients were suffering with symptoms that affected their digestive system, including:

  • Heartburn and Acid Reflux
  • GERD
  • Bloating
  • Wind
  • Burping
  • Pain
  • Gastritis
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhoea
  • Colitis
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Gallstones
  • Halitosis (Bad Breath)

I’ve also read extensively on these subjects and spoken with many leading medical experts in their field. During this time, I’ve reached the conclusion that the Top 10 reasons these symptoms and diseases develop are related to two simple things:

First, something is in there that shouldn’t be.

Second, things that should be there are either missing or present in levels that are much too low.

When you combine these staggeringly obvious and simple concepts, the Top 10 reasons for digestive problems become obvious and the more obvious they become, the clearer it is that the medical system’s policy of giving drugs is a complete waste of time, not to mention a waste of out of pocket or taxpayers’ money:

    1. Gluten consumption. Gluten is found in wheat, rye, barley and other grains. It is capable of causing inflammation in the small intestine and autoimmune reactions against the liver, gallbladder and certain cells in the stomach. According to leading authority, Dr. Tom O’Bryan, gluten sensitivity affects up to 70% of us. I’ve seen remarkable results in a matter of weeks or even days when people eliminate gluten from their diets.
    2. Cow’s milk consumption. Cow’s milk is the number one allergy causing food on the planet. Millions upon millions of people have either lactose intolerance or problems with the protein fractions of cow’s milk. As well as classic digestive symptoms, these sensitivities can cause fatigue, depression, skin problems and many more symptoms.
    3. Soy consumption. Soy is touted and promoted heavily as a health food, but I’d like to argue that it’s nothing of the sort. My own digestive system responds by bloating up and giving me loose stools and diarrhoea within 2 hours. The human body is not designed to consume large quantities of soy and the presence of soy in the Western diet is a disaster.
    4. Sugar consumption. The problem with sugar is that it’s readily fermented by bacteria and yeast in the digestive system. When it’s eaten by some people, this fermentation turns their digestive systems into washing machines, with rumbling, bloating, bloating, gurgling, loose stools and other symptoms ensuing.(many other dietary factors can irritate the gut, including processed foods, coffee and alcohol, meats that are preserved with nitrates, etc).
    5. Parasite infection. Everyone has parasites, but whether they cause problems for you depends on many other factors, including those listed above. I personally had a parasite called Blastocystis hominis, which caused IBS-type symptoms until I eradicated it. Large parasites such as hookworm, Ascaris, threadworn and whipworm can cause many problems, but the smaller parasites can cause problems that are just as severe. Blastocystis, Cryptosporidium, Giardia, amoebas and others can create all the symptoms listed at the top of this article.
    6. Yeast and Fungal Overgrowth. Candida albicans is one species of yeast that can overgrow in any part of the digestive system (including the mouth – oral thrush – and throat). Overgrowth of these organisms is usually caused by taking antibiotics, eating too much carbohydrate/sugar, poor immune system, mercury toxicity and low levels of good bacteria, which would otherwise keep the yeast species at bay.
    7. Bacterial Dysbiosis. H pylori, C difficile, E coli, Campylobacter, Vibrio and many other types of bacteria can overgrow in your digestive system. When they do so, they all have the capacity to cause significant discomfort.
    8. Hypochloridia & Achloridia. In younger children, and then as we age (into our 40s, 50s and beyond), stomach acid levels can be too low. This leads to improper digestion of food, which can then become food for the bugs further down your digestive system and leads to bloating, gas and many other symptoms. Optimal acid levels in the stomach are also required for the digestion of nutrients like iron and B12. If they are not digested properly, nerves, energy and mood can be severely affected. Ironically, according to clinical testing and observation at Dr Jonathan Wright’s Tahoma clinic, most heartburn is caused by levels of stomach acid that are TOO LOW.
    9. Accumulation of Environmental Toxins. There are now 80,000 man-made chemicals in the environment. Many of these, including pesticides, heavy metals (e.g. mercury), PCBs, plastics and petrochemicals have been shown to by toxic to your immune, nervous and endocrine systems. Given that the gut has a nervous system that is as complex as the brain (read Dr. Michael Gershon’s book, The Second Brain) and that 80% of your immune system is housed in the gut, it’s virtually impossible for these toxins not to cause problems in the gut!
    10. Poor Liver or Gallbladder Function. Poor diet and overload with toxins can make the liver and gallbladder sluggish. The liver produces bile, which is then stored in the gallbladder and squirted into the intestine to help in the digestion of fats and oils. Supporting liver and gallbladder function can provide enormous benefit to you if you have constipation, bloating, diarrhoea and wind, for example. My own digestive system responded wonderfully when I began to assist my liver and gallbladder using nutritional supplements. Unfortunately, many people have gallbladder surgery when they probably don’t need it.
      1. Something is in the body that should not be:
        • Food, bacteria, yeast, fungi, parasites, toxins
      2. 2. The things that should be there are missing:
        • Stomach acid, digestive enzymes, bile, good bacteria, nutrients, parts of, or whole, digestive organs due to stomach or gallbladder surgery

      The equation is very simple:

      1. You have to remove the things that should not be there.
        • Food, bacteria, yeast, fungi, parasites, toxins
      2. Put back in the things that should be there.
        • Stomach acid, digestive enzymes, bile, good bacteria, nutrients, parts of, or whole, digestive organs due to stomach or gallbladder surgery
      1. Remove the obvious foods that could be causing problems and replace them with tasty alternatives that help to heal your system instead of harming it. Q: How do we do that?A: By taking a full health history and diet diary from you and then advising you on what needs to be changed. Tools to help the process include The H Pylori Diet PDF ebook and paperback book and the life-changing Health Freedom Secrets online 12 Week Nutrition Programme.If you’d like to book a consultation with us, or download our Client Intake Forms, please click here.
      2. Determine anything else that is in your body that should not be there using clinical laboratory testing that you can simply do in your own home. We can test for parasites, bacteria, yeast and fungi, toxins, food allergies and more. Q: How do we do that?A: By using state of the art functional laboratory testing where kits are sent to your home for you to provide a sample (stool, urine, bloodspot, saliva, depending on the test). You simply return the sample to the lab for analysis and we are able to determine which parasites you have, whether you have bacteria imbalances or yeast and fungal overgrowth.

      3. Start taking steps to remove the bad things that should not be there, with full support from a qualified consultant.Q: How do we do that?A: We strongly recommend that you work with one of our consultants for assistance with this process as it can be tricky to negotiate. We work alongside doctors and can also create customised supplement protocols to address all your needs.If you’d like to book a consultation with us, or download our Client Intake Forms, please click here.
      4. Take steps to heal the gut and replace the things that are missing from your body: vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fats, enzymes, acid levels, immune cells and good bacteria. Q: How do we do that?A: Again, we strongly recommend that you work with one of our consultants for assistance with this process as it can be tricky to negotiate on your own. We work alongside doctors and can also create customised supplement protocols to address all your needs.If you’d like to book a consultation with us, or download our Client Intake Forms, please click here.

Summary

Of course, there may be other reasons why digestion is impaired. Surgery, nutritional deficiency, hormone imbalances, etc can all affect digestion, but these other potential factors all still fall under the same banners:
