It suggests the gas is from the atmosphere. A standing flat plate x-ray could also confirm this by showing excess gas in the upper gut.quote: the symptoms don't ease up much if I fas
Yes, it wil distinguish between bacterial production or air ingestion.quote:is that a surefire way of telling what causes my flatulence problem?
Food "intolerances", whatever they are, have nothing to do with gas.quote:Most people don't realize that they can have food intolerances,
Not necessarily.quote:Whenever I eat certain food, I get explosive results literally
I guess it depends on what you mean by "sensitivity". To me, sensitivity results from some interaction between the food and your own human body cells. If your immune system reacts to milk protein, then it is OK to say are hypersensitive to milk. Another type of reaction is pharmacological. In some people, their body's own cells react to monosodium glutatamate and they get flushed in the face.But gas produced in the gut is done entirely by "foreign" organisms, namely bacteria living in your gut. These bacteria are living there, feeding on what you feed yourself. To them, it is normal to be making these gases. Obviously, not everyone is producing these particular gases in the volume you are producing them, so there is something different about ecological environment in your gut, but I wouldn't use the term "sensitivity" (or intolerance for that matter) to describe it.quote:So what you are telling me is that if I have a sensitivity to wheat, soy, malitol, etc, there will be no increase in gas?
Logic? 1) Food allergy/intolerance is not the problem. 2) Wouldn't "Raising the immunity" make things worse?quote:Raise your immunity & you will have fewer problems
So?quote: Mangosteen Puree is the strongest known antioxidant in
Huh?quote:you should have an energy burst to prove it
This is largely irrelevant since one needs to consume a fair dose of milk for the symptoms to appear.quote:could render you intolerant to cows milk, for instance,where as
Huh?quote: As the immune system gets weaker, it becomes over sensitive & allergic with more & more triggers.
Really?quote:Say for instance a person is allergic to tomatoes, & somehow gets talked into having a meal which consists of them. The chances are that person will no longer be able enjoy potatoes, capsicums,egg plants or any of the solanum family because of the body`s recogition that they are relatives to the tomato.
But IBSers are not having these "reactions".quote:If by chance there is a product that can lower that allergic reaction, & lower the inflamation caused by that reaction
That's all?quote:Where there is inflamation anywhere in the body there is sensitivity of some kind which can cause pain, itchiness, spasms, C, D, arthritis,gout,.I.B.S of course, & in the head, Migraines, headaches , neuralgia,sore eyes etc.
These fruits may have biological effects but what do they have to do with IBS? Anti-inflammatory drugs don't have anything to do with it.quote:The Mangosteen fruit has been proven to do this naturally without the damage to the stomach walls that anti-inflamatory drugs are notorious for.
This just makes no sense.quote:By reduction of the inflamation & rebuilding the immune system, even the those who have an intolerance to dairy
No, they don't. You are confusing various nutrient malabsorption syndromes for something that is poorly defined (if it exists at all). Unfortunately, the terms are sometimes used interchangeably even in reputable sources, but they really are not.quote:The fact is that many food intolerances produce gas
Could it be that it doesn't work at all?quote: ,& ground up for just as long to cure Dysentry, Diarrhea,Gonherea, tropical ulcers,fungal & bacterial problems & all kinds of inflamation.However they never knew why it worked only that it does
Food intolerances don't even appear to exist. That's semantics?quote:you've already been told that it's just semantics.
Most people who are lactose "intolerant" don't appear to be troubled by lactose. That's semantics?quote:Whatever your definition, there are different types of food which are troublesome for those who get gas.
Where's the adverse reaction?. It's normal physiology for the sulfur-producing bacteria to make gas from undigested sulfur-containing foods. Only for some people is the amount abnormal. That's not due to the food, though, but to the bacteria and their behavior. That's semantics?quote:Apart from the obvious sulphite producers, there are many other foods which can form adverse reactions.
The bacteria in the colon.quote:Tell me what other factors are more influential in (smelly) gas production
This info is plastered over the BB: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov:80/entrez/quer...1&dopt=Abstract http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov:80/entrez/quer...3&dopt=Abstract http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov:80/entrez/quer...7&dopt=Abstractquote:where is your proof that most people who are lactose intolerant aren't affected by lactose?
I wouldn't use the word reaction because it sounds like it is some sort of allergy, which it is not.quoteoint is that the food appears to cause the bacteria to set off the reaction.
You could probably find a a book that finds the opposite too. Placebo response is notorious in IBS, so any change may appear to make symptoms better.In addition, even if it were true that eliminate carbohydrate-containing foods appeared to improve symptoms in IBS, wouldn't a logical reason be that that by reducing carbs one reduces total food volume and that puts less "strain" so to speak on the gut.quote:I've just read a book giving testimonies about peop;e having relief from IBS and joint problems by eliminating starch from their diets.
It does that in eveyone if he or she consumes enough. You have to consume a fair amount before it triggers this. But people don't ordinarily consume this much. And even when they do, people don't seem mind.quote:Lactose gives me a gas. I don't need a publication to tell me that.
That is consistent, butquote:It's not just small amounts of lactose, but also small amounts of all sorts of other food, that give me gas.
excess gas seems to be rare, afflicting proboably just a few dozen people of all the people who have posted to the BB.quoteeople on this board, more often than not do, not fit the norm. .
No, it doesn't. Whatever is causing the gas, milk it is not.quote: in my case even a sip of milk can cause gas
