Diet to Soothe Irritable Bowel

Irritable Bowel Syndrome affects as many as one in five U.S. adults! A chronically inflamed, painful colon is a result of food allergies in 65% of cases. It’s usually a reaction to gluten, wheat, dairy, corn, eggs, or other food item. Fast foods, fried foods, processed foods and sugars all aggravate irritable bowel. Most people with IBS are women between 20 and 40 with stressful  lifestyles. New research shows that 78% of people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome have overgrowth of abnormal bacteria in the small intestine, often the result of too many antibiotics. Colon membranes become irritated, and the body forms pouchy pockets in reaction. In severe cases (ulcerative colitis), ulcerous lesions line the sides of the colon.

10-Day Diet to relieve irritable bowel

During acute stage of irritable bowel pain:

Go on a mono diet for 2 days with just apples and apple juice to gently cleanse the colon.

For the next 8 days:

Have 2 – 3 glasses of mixed vegetable juices throughout the day. (Wheatgrass juice is a specific for colitis.) Have steamed brown and mixed vegetables for an early dinner each evening. Drink at least 6 – 8 glasses of pure water throughout the day.

On rising: take 2 fresh squeezed lemons, 1 tbsp. maple syrup in 8 oz. of water; or have a glass of aloe vera juice (add 1 – 2 tbsp. to 8 oz. of pure water); or apple juice.

Breakfast: have a fruit fiber mix of prunes, raisins and apples. Top with a little yogurt, vanilla kefir or apple juice; or have a fiber drink.

Mid-morning: make an IBS healing juice: juice 4 handfuls greens: 1 spinach, 1 parsley, 1 kale, and 1 arugula; 2 large tomatoes; ¼ head green cabbage; 4 carrots with tops, and 2 stalks celery with  leaves; a 4 oz. tub alfalfa sprouts;  and a few sprigs of fresh mint. If you're low on time, as an alternative, have a green superfood drink.

Lunch: Have a simple green salad with a special Ginger-Flaxseed Dressing. For 2 cups: blend 1 cucumber chopped, 1 tbsp. flax seeds, 1 tbsp. fresh grated ginger, 1 tsp. sesame oil, and 1½ cups water; have a mixed veggie juice of your choice.

Mid-afternoon: have a carrot juice; or green tea, or apple/alfalfa sprout juice.

Dinner: have steamed brown rice and mixed steamed vegetables. Sprinkle with chopped dry seaweeds (like dulse or kelp). Add 1 tbsp. flax or olive oil, and 1 tbsp. Liquid Aminos. Or, make a high fiber veggie broth: In 2½ cups water, cook 2 cups chopped fresh mixed vegetables, add 1 tsp. miso and 2 tbsp. chopped dried seaweeds

Before Bed: have another aloe juice drink; or papaya juice; or nutritional yeast broth for B vitamins.

It’s never easy to change daily habits. But since life isn’t going to slow down, a conscious effort must be made to break the vicious digestive circle.  Keep remembering how much better you will feel.
