Health - Bloated?

Bloated?  Zip Your Pants Up -- Here's The Answer

Hi John
By far one of the most common problems my clients and readers ask me about is bloating.
I'm not talking about having a full stomach after eating a big meal or a woman's swelling with her menstrual period.
I'm talking about rock-hard, can't see your toes, beach ball gut, have-to-unbutton-your-pants-just-to-breathe B-L-O-A-T-I-N-G.
Bloating like this is extremely uncomfortable and is commonly associated with cramps, pain, gas and constipation. All you feel like doing is curling up in the fetal position and praying it will pass soon.
Occasional bloating is one thing...but many people have it a LOT, as in several days a week or even every day. This is chronic bloating and is nothing to take lightly.
If this sounds at all familiar to you, read on. You won't want to miss a word of this.
Little cause, BIG effects
There are several underlying causes for chronic bloating--major conditions like IBS, Crohn's and colitis are common offenders.
There's also a commonly overlooked cause that's VERY tiny--so tiny, in fact, that it's microscopic.
But its effect on your gut are HUGE.
It's called fermentation dysbiosis, which is a fancy term for having too many of the wrong kind of bacteria in your gut and too few of the right kind.
Here's the scoop:
The skinny on dysbiosis
In an ideal world, bacteria exist in our intestinal walls in a careful balance. Our beneficial bacteria (probiotics) make up about 85% of that balance and help to break down certain foods, strengthen our intestinal walls and keep potentially dangerous microbes in check.
This is called "symbiosis" which means living together in mutual harmony.
DYSbiosis, on the other hand, is an imbalance of bacteria which favors the UNfriendly organisms living in us.
Many factors can lead to dysbiosis including stress, environmental toxins, oral contraceptives and other medications (especially steroids and antibiotics).
But one of the most common is the standard American diet which is loaded with fat, sugar, processed and fast food, and very little fiber or very few naturally occurring nutrients.
These factors encourage an overgrowth of viruses, dangerous bacteria, yeasts and fungi in your gut wall which in turn can cause symptoms such as diarrhea, constipation, gas, bloating, abdominal pain and poor digestion, as well as low energy.
But wait--there's more!
You see, the dangerous microbes produce toxins on their own which damage the villi, microvilli and cilia in your intestinal lining and lead to chronic inflammation, leaky gut and poor nutrient absorption.
All that trouble from some itsy bitsy microbes!
A special "breed" of dysbiosis
One specific "breed" of dysbiosis is fermentation dysbiosis.
People with fermentation dysbiosis are prone to poor digestion of carbohydrates including grains, fiber, sugar, fruit, beer and wine. It's common these days because of our typical carb-heavy diets.
It usually shows itself as an overgrowth of Candida fungi and other disease-causing microbes.
Typical symptoms include large amounts of gas, alternating constipation and diarrhea and...
A VERY hard, chronically bloated abdomen.
Now, Candida can be particularly nasty.
It destroys the small intestine's villi and microvilli which impairs your absorption of nutrients, can cause fatigue and eventually contribute to deficiency diseases such as osteoporosis.
Plus, since Candida can travel easily through the body, it can also manifest itself as a yeast infection in the mouth or throat (thrush) or a vaginal yeast infection in women.
Unfortunately, some of the most commonly prescribed drugs (anti-inflammatories, pain relievers and steroids) also are nourishment for Candida and can worsen and perpetuate a current overgrowth problem.
What to do: return to symbiosis
The good news is you CAN take some very effective measures to help combat fermentation dysbiosis and help ease the bloating and other health problems it causes.
Here are three that are particularly helpful:
1) Medication alternatives
Avoidance of medications as much as possible (especially anti-inflammatories and steroids) is crucial. These are one of THE most common factors leading to fermentation dysbiosis.
If you are on medications, talk to your doctor about alternatives and/or explore natural remedies.

2) Eat your way to a better balance
Eating a healthy diet of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, lean meats and fish and avoid refined carbohydrates will nourish your gut's beneficial bacteria while starving out the harmful ones.
And if this sounds about as exciting to you as watching paint dry, you're in luck.
Because the Great Taste No Pain health system can make eating for a healthy flora balance (and no bloating) exciting and downright delicious.
Believe me, you won't feel deprived or like you're existing on "rabbit fare"--not when you try MY recipes and meal suggestions!
And it's so easy to do--just a few simple principles are all you need to know to start making a BIG difference in how you feel down below.

3) Supplement with both lactobacillus and bifidobacterium probiotics
Probiotic supplementation with species of both lactobacillus (for the small intestine) and bifidobacterium (for the colon) is very helpful in fighting dysbiosis.
Probiotics will help build up the population of friendly microbes in your gut, so the "good guys" can "crowd out" the bad guys and bring your balance back to where it should be.
Probiotics can also help decrease the permeability of the gut wall. This can help to avoid the leakage of poorly digested food particles and toxins into your abdomen and bloodstream that can lead to illness and food allergies.
Super Shield multi-strain probiotic formula has not one, not two, but FIVE different powerhouse strains of bifidobacteria and SIX lactobacillus strains, plus two other super strains.
Talk about thorough!
When designing Super Shield, we knew we had to include a wide variety of different species of bacteria--that way, we stood the greatest chance of helping the largest number of people with various health challenges.
And Super Shield delivers time and again!
No other probiotic you can get anywhere has this many medical-grade strains.  Not one.

If you or someone you love suffers from chronic bloating (and some of the other health challenges I mentioned above), fermentation dysbiosis may certainly be a culprit behind your troubles.
See what a difference it can make to help balance out your intestinal flora. I bet you'll see some very nice changes FAST and will say goodbye to bloating for good.
To your health,

PS: Marjorie is no longer bloated:
I have a friend who turned me on to your Great Taste No Pain plan. I immediately ordered your plan and started changing my whole way of eating.
I was so miserable. I was constantly bloated and had horrific gas. After reading your books and changing my habits, I have not had a problem since.
You make it so simple. I could not believe the difference it made. I feel like my old self and have told everyone I know and care about this. I hope they will get your info and start changing their lives.
Thank you for all the wonderful info you provide us all with. I know it is time consuming and your knowledge just keeps us all in touch with what we need to know.
