D) Got some good Gut Rules?
Gas. Too much. Painfully so.
Ever been there? Until recently, I had a major gas problem. At first, I thought it is a side effect of getting older, and use some
actived coal powder (don`t have the exact translation, sorry), the same black powder used in poison detoxification solutions because it binds to almost anything, and it helped … for a while.
Then I got tired and started reading a book that talked about the importance of the gut. In short, the author thinks the whole intestinal tract is like the second brain, and that many illnesses can be prevented by taking care of the gut.
Gut Rules, 1) Never drink coffee on an empty stomach - do it at the end of the meal, 2) Eat food on a regular basis, so that intake is matched with the natural cycles of the gut, i.e. the stomach fills with acid periodically indepently of whether there`s food or not.
There were many other rules, but simply applying the first one stopped my gas problem completely.
I also remember Don Lemmon`s theories about drinking a glass of water as soon as one gets up, and that one should eat on a periodic basis so that the new food pushes the old one, thus preventing it from staying too long in the gut, rotting, and causing all sorts of problems.
Any other good Gut Rules or references to good books / hints? Thanks in advance!
