you need to give us more information, like what you ve been eating, or perhaps how you have been mixing the food, etc.

Remember, as an Rh-, like me, you need one less grain serving and (I think we get) 2 more protein servings per week.

Have you thought about going grain free completely for a week?  Up your protein and greens, and see what happens.

I gurgle more when I eat more compliantly.  I know that when I eat more compliantly, the body removes more junk from years past.  At this point, I don't worry about the little noises or the soft stools, but sometimes the "whew" gets me!  

All I can say is, "Thanks to Dr. D., I'm getting better!"

Focus on eating mostly beneficial food items and less neutrals, and no avoids.

Food combining, eating less food at one sitting, journaling, scheduling more/less meals in a single day might be options to consider.

Spelt is a gluten containing grain.  Some of us are gluten intolerant even if we are not Celiac.  I have found that cutting out all gluten grains has eliminated my tendency to overly loose stools.  

I still have a noisy digestive tract, though.

Hi,

How  r u  Victoria?

I was wondering if u agree that a noisy system is part of cleansing ??
cause,  I tend to gurgle, bubble and growl MORE when I eat sweets ... etc ... hmmmm

however; at times I'm noisy also when I'm being compliant ... it's VERY tricky and mysterious and frustrating actually ...
TY

Hi LisaLea,
This is one of the mysteries that I haven't solved yet.  I once read an article by a physician, about what are the signs and symptoms of a healthy digestive tract.  He referred specifically to noisy gurgles after meals.  His opinion was that healthy, life-promoting foods are noisy.  He said that dead, heavy foods just get pushed through, but nutrient-rich foods create gases as they are digested and it's normal.

I don't know about his theory.  All know is that nothing I have tried yet has taken care of it.  All I haven't done yet is strict food combining, and I'm not ready to be that regimented yet.    Lots of people already think I'm too regimented with my eating!!

I don't have the article, LisaLea.  It was at least 10 years ago, and was in a magazine that I was reading in an office somewhere.  So who knows if he knew what he was talking about anyway?  
But it very well could be true.

I have a feeling that giving more attention to food combining would give both you and me some relief from the music concert that goes on inside our gut!  !!

Some things that have helped to reduce this problem for me have been to stop all gluten and cows milk products.  I digest the goat and sheep dairy more quickly, with less reaction.

Whatever works for u is just great !!
I do prefer goat/sheeps myself, but it's expensive !!
YEP, and the music concert continues to this day inside my gut!  !!
