In this video, we’re going to talk about bloating. One of the best indicators of the right or wrong diet is bloating.

Bloating is often an issue with the small intestine. Around 90% of digestion occurs in the small intestine. Inflammation, certain medications, and food allergies can irritate the lining of the small intestine and cut down the surface area of the small intestine where digestion occurs.

SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) occurs when microbes that belong in the large intestine begin to grow in the small intestine. When you eat, especially fiber, you experience tremendous amounts of bloating because of fermentation.

Fermentation is supposed to occur in the large intestine. If it occurs in the small intestine, you’ll experience bloating and gas.

Damage, inflammation, or scar tissue in the small intestine can also cause bloating. This is generally caused by a diet of ultra-processed foods like seed oils, synthetic starches, and synthetic sugars.

To reduce bloating, try the carnivore diet and intermittent fasting for a few months! Betaine hydrochloride is also beneficial in helping acidify the stomach and reduce bloating.

If you’re experiencing bloating, constipation, and your stool floats, this means you’re not digesting fats. This could be caused by an issue with your gallbladder, pancreas, or another function of digestion.

In this case, it can be beneficial to cut back on fiber consumption and then slowly increase it over time. This allows the necessary time for your microbes to increase. Fasting can also help increase the diversity of your microbes.

Vitamin B1 supports the nervous system so it can be helpful if you’re dealing with constipation. Adequate potassium, magnesium, and sodium are also essential.

The best way to know if you’re on the right diet is to assess your bloating. If you’re feeling good, your stools are good, and you’re not experiencing pain or bloating, you’re likely on the right diet.

    Gas, bloating, heartburn, rumbling, gurgling, back pain was terrible for me. I found that enriched grains and sugars were feeding the rope parasites. After passing them for years i no longer have any of these problems.

  • @user-fv5ms4sz8e says:

    I made a huge pot of beans and rice and every time I have a bowl, my stomach growls and gurgles. So, I was thinking I had leaky gut and all the sounds were everything gushing out, but now I’m thinking I may just be eating the right diet, and I’m terrified if it could be a space alien trying to rips its way out of my body, as it had been using me as it’s incubator ? 😮. Thank you doctor for or narrowing down the possibilities and scaring the crap out of me.

  • @thegadphly3275 says:

    Dr Berg, when will your videos about DNA and Genes going to be released? Been waiting for them since you mentioned them before, that you have been doing a lot of research and study about them and that you will be starting to make videos about them, maybe another channel or add to this one. Please Dr Berg. Thank you.

    I literally just bought some bee propolis for bloating. I have Lyme disease, mold toxicity and that gave me hypothyroidism. Keto has been the way I’ve been wanting to go. This video came out just in time. Thanks, again! ❤
