I have called food combining the instant cure. And if you suffer from heartburn, reflux, nausea, burping, and all the rest of gigantic, medically profitable mess we all call indigestion, and you have not tried food combining to get relief, you need to follow some of my advice which has helped thousands of patients get rid of their usual indigestion problems — simply because they changed the way they eat.
Poor food combining is not the cause of everyone’s indigestion. But since it is simple and free, you should test to see if food combining can help with your problems. The bare-bones basics of food combining are that starches and proteins do not go together. Vegetables go with everything except fruit. Fruit should be eaten alone. That’s it.
The only hard part is to stop combining protein with starch and protein with bread. Just about everyone has gotten into the bad habit of eating too much bread and eating bread with all meals. This habit promotes indigestion, heartburn, and diabetes. Everyone would feel better, lose weight, gain better control of their blood sugar, and take a giant step toward eliminating heartburn if they quit eating 95% of the bread they now consume.
As for eliminating the combination of protein with starch, you will need to stop eating meat, chicken, fish, eggs, or beans with potatoes, rice or pasta. Instead, have these protein food with lots of steamed vegetables and a big salad. Conversely, have a starch dinner, such as spaghetti or pasta, with a great homemade marinara (or some other sauce), perhaps some vegetables, and a big salad. Just eliminate the meatballs.
And when you make a great salad, please do not ruin it with horrible, bottled or packaged store-bought salad dressings. These are an abomination that your body cannot digest. Instead use extra-virgin, first-pressed olive oil or some raw flax oil. Combine it with some organic apple cider or balsamic vinegar, and add the spices that you like. Getting into the habit of a large salad before dinner will go a long way toward helping you feel better, look better, and lose weight.
So eat two or three hours before bedtime, combine your foods properly, eat only until you feel full, drink only pure water with dinner, and kiss your drugs — that is, Mylanta®, Rolaids®, and all the other exotic acid blockers and stoppers — goodbye. They can all make you permanently ill and can slowly destroy your health.
Years of poor diet and improperly combined foods cause a deficiency of the nutrients necessary for the body to make the adequate enzymes need for proper digestion. That is why so many people over the age of 50 actually suffer from low stomach acid. With low stomach acid, you will always suffer from indigestion because your stomach cannot digest foods completely. The remnants of undigested meals rot in your stomach, producing acids and gas.
In addition, years of eating processed, unhealthy fats and oils producses gallbladder problems, including stale, thick, sludgy bile. This results in the inability to digest fats properly, causing nausea, burping, reflux, vomiting, and finally, gallbladder disease. Masking these symptoms by taking Pepto Bismol® or other drugs, or even having your gallbladder removed, is a typical band-aid medical treatment that ignores the underlying causes of the symptoms, leaving them fomenting just below the surface. Therefore, in addition to food combining, you may need supplmental digestie enzymes for 6-12 months.
There are hundreds of exotic “digestive aids” on the market. Many of them cover up symptoms. Most people simply need Zypan and/or A-F Betafood by Standard Process. If you suffer from indigestion, take the Zypan Test to determine if you have insufficient stomach acid. If so, you will need to use Zypan tables (2-4 with meals) for 6-12 months as you improve your diet and combine your foods properly. Contact us to find out how to take a Zypan Test.
If you suffer from fast digestion and gallbladder problems, you will need to take A-F Betafood (2-4 per meal) for 6-12 months. In addition, you may need to perform a gallbladder cleanse or even a gallbladder flush to help rid yourself of stale, thick bile and bile gravel. Both procedures are simple and you can contact us for the data.
So enjoying better digestion with less heartburn, reflux, nausea, vomiting, and gas can be as simple as A, B, C. Just start food combining, then use proper digestive enzymes and then wean from drugs. And help is as easy as going online and searching for “What Your Doctor Won’t Tell You About Digestive Pain.” There you will find a program by Sherry Brescia. It will cost you less than $50 to end your misery.
The real cause of indigestion is not all that complicated. What it has become is a moneymaking, health-destroying American business of toxic, non-foods that are laden with sugar and chemicals, and that are nearly indigestible. These causes of indigestion are followed up with lots of doctors, drugs, surgeries, and medical procedures that all make tons of money by covering up the mess caused by the fast- and processed-food industries.
Don’t fall for this deadly game. Our economy can withstand the loss of millions of jobs involved in the making and distributing of these non-food concoctions, and then reating the health problems that they create. My grandfather used to say, You can give a few bucks to the farmer now, or you can give all your money to the doctors later.” The jobs lost in ending this mess can be replaced by jobs created to grow, produce, distribute, and process real, whole, nutritionally dense food. What a concept!
