I'm Always Bloated Why And What I Can Do About It?

If you are always feeling bloated there is definately a problem, but you do not need to suffer. Below are solutions ro relieve your discomfort.

If your meal just sits there for hours or you have gas, bloating, or acid reflux you may be lacking digestive enzyme to break down your meal.

Taking tagament and other anti acid medications can make matters worse because they neutralize the very enzymes needed to breakdown the food you have eaten. Then your meal will just sit there fermenting, creating gas and an environment favorable to yeast, bacteria and parasites.

The solution is simple, take digestive enzymes with meals and the bloat will disappear. I recommend taking a broad spectrum enzyme called Enzalase by Master Formulas because Enzalase reduces indigestion and gas fast. It is the only multi-enzyme supplement you need because its 12 high potency enzymes digest all food groups plus fiber. For more information about Enzalase click here.

Enzalase is also an acid-proof formulation which survives stomach acid and
delivers enzymes deep into the intestinal tract (to finish digestion).

If the bloating doesn't go away then there are only a couple of other things that be causing that bloated feeling. One of them is bugs in the gut. The Comprehensive Stool Analysis with Parasitology x 3 is an invaluable non-invasive diagnostic assessment that permits practitioners to objectively evaluate the status of beneficial and imbalanced commensal bacteria including Clostridium species, pathogenic bacteria, yeast/fungus and parasites. For more information on this test click here.

Inflammation can significantly increase intestinal permeability and compromise assimilation of nutrients. The extent of inflammation, whether caused by pathogens or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), can be assessed and monitored by examination of the levels of biomarkers such as lysozyme, lactoferrin, white blood cells and mucus. These markers can be used to differentiate between inflammation associated with potentially life threatening inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which requires life long treatment, and less severe inflammation that can be associated with the presence of enteroinvasive pathogens. This test will identify several things in the gut. It measures the good and bad bacteria, checks to see if there is an overgrowth of yeast and check if there are parasites. It also checks for inflammation in the gut. This test is invaluable where the gut is concerned.

Yeast (Candida), bacteria or parasites will definitely cause that bloated feeling. A bacterial overgrowth in the intestines can be caused by diverticulitis. Diverticulitis is usually caused by food sensitivities for food allergies. When you are sensitive to a certain food group, the offending food becomes toxic to the system causing inflammation. The inflammation causes tissue swelling which, over time, causes thinning of the GI walls and small pockets form where food can get trapped and infected. If you have diverticulosis or diverticulitis avoid seeds, nuts and anything that can get stuck in these pockets. Colonics or colon hydrotherapy can flush out the debree and infection from these pockets and afford relief. However, if there is an infection, that will need to be dealt with.

The third offender is food sensitivities or food allergies. As mentioned above, when you have a food sensitivity the food becomes toxic and causes inflammation. The inflammation can cause the bowel to swell and lead to constipation, diverticulitis, autoimmune diseases, arthritis and multiple symptoms. Usually the most noticeable symptom is bloating after a meal. Pay attention to what food is causing this reaction and stay away from it for 3 months or longer. I have an immediate reaction to dairy. When I consume anything with dairy in it my stomach bloat immediately and I look 9 months pregnant. When I eat wheat it affects me differently. It causes my gut to swell and become inflamed which affects my lymph system and I get swollen all over with pain caused by the inflammation. It also causes autoimmune symptoms and prompted the trigger of an autoimmune disease called Hashimoto Thyroiditis, where the body attacks the thyroid.

This is serious stuff that should not be ignored. The longer you ignore your symptom of bloating the more severe the body will suffer over time. In cases where you suspect food sensitivities or allergies I recommend US BioTek's 96 IgG Antibody-Mediated Food Sensitivities Serum- Finger Prick Test , click here for more information . This quick and sensitive test identifies for food-specific IgG antibodies from a patient’s blood spot sample. It checks 96 different foods.

Now where wheat or gluten is the cause there can be more severe symptoms, therefore I recommend a more sensitive test that checks 14 proteins in wheat. I recommend the Gluten Sensitivity Array 1 Test by Cyrex Labs.

Recommended for Patients who:
- Are suspect of having mucosal abnormality
- Have relatives with Celiac disease
- have Type 1 Diabetes
- Have autoimmune Thyroid disorder
- Have relatives with autoimmune disorders, especially:
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Diabetes
- Arthritis

I can also check for cross immune reactions of other foods with click here for more info on The Gluten Associated Cross Reactive Test by Cyrex Labs

Array 4 is recommended for Patients who:
- Have Gluten Sensitivity or Celiac disease
- Are non-responsive on gluten-free diet
- Have gut dysbiosis , that is resistant to standard therapy
- Have an autoimmune disorder

Cross-reactivity is an immune reaction between an antibody and an antigen (casein), in which the antibody was generated against a different, but similar, antigen (gliadin). THis can cause the activated autoreactive T-cells to turn against self-tissue, causing autoimmune disease.

Finally there is the Gluten & Autoimmune Array 3 click here for more info.

Array 3 IgG, IgA

Patients with Celiac disease or gluten sensitivity can produce antibodies against an array of protein, enzymes, and peptide antigens. The measurement of IgG and IgA antibodies against 12 potentially pathogenic molecules involved in Celiac disease and Gluten sensitivity enhances the clinical sensitivity and specificity for the detection of these disorders.

Recommended for the patients who:
- Have gut dysbiosis, which is resistance to standard therapy
- Are suspect of having intestinal mucosal damage and mal absorption
- Complain of food allergy and intolerance
- Complain of chemical hypersensitivity
- Present multiple symptom complaints (including Chronic fatigue, & fibromyalgia)
- Suffer from abnormal immune cell count and function (including autoimmune diseases)
- May suffer from blood-brain barrier permeability, depression or neuroautoimmunity

Neuroautoimmune Patients with:

- Thyroid issues
- Arthritis
- Myocarditis
- Dermatitis
- Endocrinapathy
- Polyendocrinapathy
- Osteoarthritis
- Pernicious Anemia

So to sum up what is causing your bloating:
1. Enzyme Deficiency
2. Yeast, Bacteria or Parasites
3. Food Sensitivities

All of these can be corrected once properly diagnosed. That's where I come in. I can help you identify the source of your problem and recommend the proper course of action based of your test out come. Let a trained health practioner help you get fast relief I' only a phone call away.
