Do you ever wonder why the heck you can’t digest certain foods?
As a nutritionist that helps a lot of people fix their digestion and be able to eat delicious foods without feeling sluggish, bloated and running to the bathroom, I think you’ll find this interesting.
Now, it doesn’t happen to everybody, but when I hear my clients say, “I just can’t digest meat anymore” or “_____ food just doesn’t agree with me like it used to,” I know what one of the likely reasons is (there are many – but this is a common one).
So what can you do?
Well, it depends on the severity of your symptoms and what exactly is going on.
- You could supplement with stomach acid (HCl), but I actually like the Digestive Bitters better. Take a dropper full before all of your main meals for a 4 week timeframe.
- You can take a swig of unpasteuried, raw apple cider vinegar before meals as that also stimulates the digestive juices.
- Lemon water before meals does the same as the apple cider vinegar, which is also why I start my day with this every morning.
- Remove some of the bad foods (and I know that I maybe sound like a broken record, but you know what they are: gluten, cow’s dairy, sugar and super processed foods – oh and alcohol and coffee).
Pay attention to the symptoms you have. They may not be digestive like in this post, but know that there is a reason you’re experiencing them, and usually a natural way to fix them!
