A Case of the Bubble Guts

Bubble Guts: a non-painful condition where you feel like you have bowling balls in your stomach, or it is filled with bubbles & it sounds like a battle from WW3. You aren't really sure what is going on because no air is coming out your mouth or you bum.  

This has been going on for a few days now. It is very weird and somewhat disturbing. I am mainly disturbed because in the past when I had something like this I would end up having the same problems as un-potty trained children. But not this time (thank god)!

I was informed by Lisa that it is normal when you transition to a high raw diet. Phhew! It should go away rather soon. This happens because of the amount of fiber that you are now eating. After eating a certain way for so long my stomach is used to digesting cooked foods that are lower in fiber. Right now it isn't really sure what to do with all of these vegetables. It will learn though.

If there is one thing I have learned through all of this it is that our bodies are way smarter than our brains are. Your heart never skips a beat. Your lungs never forget to breath. Our bodies are programmed to run perfectly. The reason they don't is because we feed them nutritionally devoid garbage. It is because we, as a nation, have been so confused about what to eat, when to eat, and how much to eat. Meanwhile, when you ask someone what they could do to be healthier the typical response is eat more fruits and vegetables and drink more water. Why then do we have all of these major health problems? 

I think because people deep down don't really think it is that simple. Why? Because we have a nation of doctors that have brainwashed people into thinking that it is normal to be on all sorts of prescriptions. We have a nation of mothers that microwave dinners instead of making something even partially homemade. We have a nation of vitamin & supplement companies that tell you everything will be okay if you just take the newest and best pill. We have a nation of people who do not take responsibility for their own health. We have lost all of the wisdom of the generations before us that had to use food as medicine.

Wake up people! You don't have to put yourself in a position where one day you are waking up to a diagnosis of cancer or heart disease or diabetes. These things are all preventable if you just make some changes along the way. And even though you may experience some slight discomfort in the process (like bubble guts) it is nothing compared to a grim diagnosis like cancer.
