I'm 5 months clean of sugar and junk and overall my system is showing good signs of healing overall.  However, my stomach still seems be be struggling to gain a good foothold of strong recovery so I'm finally shooting for 100% compliancy so I can give my tummy a good chance at getting better.

My new natural path recommended Oil of Oregano for my gas bloating and burping.  But I don't see that this is recommended for O's in the Encyclopedia.  Any O's or Hunter's have success with this herb and in general is this a good choice to heal the bacteria and flora in my gut?  

i'm thinking I should start a good protocol with with Gastro-D,  Intrinsa, and ARA-6.  Maybe the Digestive Support Pack???    We already take the ARA-6 Fiber so would using the ARA-6 Capsule be overkill?

I'd love to hear about gut healing and recovery from folks who have used the digestive protocols.  I really need to get my tummy better.

My stomach distress seems to come and go.  I can have a couple of days with no distress and then out of no where, I will have an awful bout of burping and gas and acid indigestion and I didn't eat anything off my Swami.    

Oh she also put me on a digestive Enzyme.  Thoughts about that?

I don't see a problem with either the oregano oil or enzymes if you ND feel they would help.

There is no reason to take the ARA-6 pill if you are already using the powder. Adjust the dose as desired.

Lloyd!! I always love it when you chime in!  Thank you for this solid suggestion.

If anyone else has experience with the Oregano or Dr. D Digestive protocols, please chime in.. I need all the help I can get since I can't easily get to a BTD/GTD natural path.

She also recommends letting go of certain foods that are on a FODMAP list.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FODMAP  

FODMAP FOOD LISTS:  http://www.cassandraforsythe.com/blog/complete+fodmap+list+for+a+happy+gut

Many on the list are easy for me to let go of as they are avoids or neutrals.. but the list has a few Diamonds that are staple in my eating regime:
Dates, Watermelon, Mango, Asparagus, Onions, Ginger, Okra Pumpkin, Agave, Fruit Juices

Now when preparing my Swami info. - I  checked Digestive problems so I'm sure that Swami would not recommend these if they were going to hurt my gut healing process, right?  And I can have a good amount of the Diamond fruit juices per day as well per Swami.. I never overdo this.. but I don't plan on letting go of my fruit juices!  And I'll be da-m'd!  if I'm going to let go of Onions, Okra and Ginger!!!!

So I'm not going to let go of these foods as I begin to possibly take the Oil of Oregano and Dr. D's digestive protocol supp's.

On the other hand in looking through the Encyclopedia - Caprylic Acid is recommended and that was the Natural Paths first recommendation instead of Oil of Oregano - but she thought that since it had the word ACID in the title - it would not be good for my O Tummy but Dr. D Recommends it so it must not affect an O like Vinegar, for instance...  

I can't find Oil of Oregano recommended for O's anywhere so I am going to go with the Caprylic Acid instead!  

I'd rather trust Dr. D's work and my Swami as so far it HAS NOT steered me wrong!  

Here here???

I use Intrinsa and Polyflora O regularly.  I feel they've helped me.

Are you still losing weight or healing?  If so, the off and on stomach issues make perfect sense to me...  As the body removes "junk" from either fat or other tissue that is being healed, you process it through the gut.  The body rarely has the same amount of junk constantly to be processed, so there are days when you have more (or different) junk that is hard to process, causing the flatulence fluctuations...

As for Oregano oil, how does oregano rate in your SWAMI?  Even though it is a diamond for me, I can rarely use it internally without too much effect.  I use several drops externally and that is as much as I can tolerate for now...

Digestive enzymes are great when you need them for help to digest junk, especially if you are having trouble processing raw foods...

detoxing can take time, so one can feel better, then worse, then better, etc.  Keep in mind that it is all worth it in the end as better health/vitality is ahead to look forward.
Good to use fresh herbs in cooking or salads, or just chew on them; rosemary, oregano, basil, tarragon.  Maybe eating according to the daily circadian rhythms may help, some cooked in morning, more raw between 11 and 2pm, cooked meal late afternoon.
Basil pesto nice.
Spices very good, ajwan seed increases digestive fire (strength), cumin seed, tumeric, ginger, maybe others.  Deep breathing exercises / yoga also good to purify cells and get rid of wastes and carbon dioxide from cells, so that nutrients then can enter, and cells rejuvinate.

In the beginning, I went through the same cycle of bloating/distress for a few days, then seemingly healed for a few days. I think AB Joe's view of the long healing process is spot on. Aussielady too. It gets better as time goes on, and eventually stops altogether. The timeframe depends on compliance, the amount of healing going on, and perhaps discovering that some permitted food just doesn't work for your particular constitution (at least for the time being).

Keep up the good work, BluesSinger. You're a success and an inspiration.

yes still losing weight and healing...
and Oil of Oregano does not rate anywhere for me in my Swami and in the Encylopedia it only addresses it for A's - if I remember correctly.  BUT Carpylic Acid is recommended for me as one of the protocols in the Encylopedia so I'm going to get on that for sure.

thank you much for the inspiration.  I'm not always PERFECT as far as how much I eat.. sometimes eating more than I should when I get tired from overdoing it (A Hunter problem!!!) but overall I'm making good progress at staying 99% compliant.  My one black dot that I use in my tea is non-GMO plain soy milk.  

Right now I'm in a big bloating/burping/gas stage.. hoping it settles down soon.  I've ordered a few supp's to assist in the process.

avoid soy, I do better without it now. It's legume, and yin (weakening) to some of us.
Use ume vinegar or ume plum if you need, or toasted sesame oil for you veg.
Tea? don't know, i gave up black tea, and make herbal tea in morning - keep warm in th flask; or green tea;  or ginger tea.
Also, keep dinner intake low, breakfast larger, and lunch largest meal of day.  So organs can rest and rejuvinate during night; it makes a big difference with you wake up feeling light, energetic and in a good mood in the morning.
We all differ, so you will find what suits you.

Hi, am not sure what your stomach issues are but when I had candida a few years ago oregano oil and olive leaf extract really helped. Interestingly for me I self imposed a strict candida diet which I now find all these years later is very similar to my swami...I guess it always makes sense in the end.
The last thing I managed to reintroduce was soy products (although swami says no so do not tend to eat) but that last little hitch was solved with Chinese medicinal herbs for blood.
Hope some of this info helps you, I had to stick to my diet for about 9 months so know how hard it can be, oregano and olive leaf I would definitely recommend for candida type issues for sure.
