causes and symptoms of bloating

Abdominal Bloating Causes

The digestive tract contains up to two pounds of living fungi and bacteria. The majority reside within the large intestine. Some of these bacteria are protective and health enhancing. Others, however, are toxin producing. An overgrowth of these toxin producing bacteria causes symptoms such as bloating. Some people have a predisposition towards harboring excessive colonies of these toxic gut bacteria.

How Bloating Begins

These toxin producing gut bacteria and fungi could be classed as scavengers. Just like flies and mice, they feed on food waste.

This food waste comes from poorly digested food which sours and turns rancid as it passes though the digestive tract. Toxic gut bacteria and fungi will feed on this waste. They release many different toxins as a by-product of this feeding frenzy.

If this continues, gut toxins can quickly overgrow and overrun the intestinal tract. Such gut infestation can then easily spread to the anus, vagina, urinary tract and mouth. This is commonly seen in cases of candida albicans overgrowth. The classic presentation of gut bacteria/ fungal overgrowth include symptoms such as bloating, cramping, spasm, diarrhoea, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Cause of Gut Bacteria Imbalance

Undigested foods are commonly known as food sensitivity or food intolerance. They can also be refered to as undigested food, poorly digested food or toxic foods. Bloating, constipation, cramping, diarrahoa , trapped wind are mostly associated with food intolerance.

Gut Bacteria

toxic spores within the colon leads to bloating

The blue and green globules are the overgrown, toxic spores within the colon. The white specles are the toxins released by these toxic gut bacteria.

Many people recognise that foods are triggering these symptoms. A food allergy reaction is immediate and obvious. A food intolerance reaction is different to a food allergy. A food intolerance reaction is a delayed or hidden reaction. The food IgG antibody test can help people to personalise dietary choices and resolve these symptoms.

The Solution

The easiest solution is to find the foods that you are intolerant to and remove them  from your diet. This will stop the feeding frenzy which is encouraging and sustaining the toxic gut bacteria. When they are deprived of their food source, they quickly die off.

Conditions such as urinary tract infections, chest infections and sinus infections may not always be solved by repeated courses of antibiotics. The focus should be to find the root cause and not just to treat the symptoms.

Food IgG Antibody Test

The new IgG antibody test will guide you towards better food choices. Properly digested food will act like pre-biotics, feeding and encouraging thriving colonies of health enhancing, good gut bacteria. As your gut bacteria recover, your immune system will also recover and your good health will be restored.
