How to End the Nightmare of Colorectal Disorders Before They End You
We discuss: Constipation, SIBO, to eat fiber or not to eat fiber, Food combing, indigestion, heartburn, GERD, Acid Reflux
Chronic gut disorders terrorize Americans of all stripes like no other plague. Just consider the epidemiology of the four most prevalent conditions, courtesy of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases:
- Chronic Constipation: “Constipation is one of the most common gastrointestinal (GI) problems, affecting about 42 million people in the United States”
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome: “Studies estimate that IBS affects 10 to 15 percent of U.S. adults [32 to 48 million people]. However, only 5 to 7 percent of U.S. adults have received a diagnosis of IBS”
- Enlarged Hemorrhoids: “About 75 percent of people will have hemorrhoids at some point in their lives”
- Diverticulitis and Diverticulosis: “About half of people between the ages of 60 and 80 have diverticular disease”
Nowhere is this epidemic as noticeable as inside any “big chain” drugstore. At our local pharmacy, for example, the laxative department is one of the largest single-condition section in the entire store:
So, ask yourself — how is it possible that the same proud country that was able to fly people to the moon and back home in 1969, can’t figure out 45+ years later how to prevent and resolve lifestyle-related colorectal disorders without resorting to a truckload of toxic laxatives?
The answer is simpler than you may think — American gastroenterologists, let alone rank-and-file family physicians, not only don’t know how to treat these conditions, but oftentimes cause even more harm by prescribing the wrong treatments and recommending inappropriate diets.
Mr. Monastrysky gives his opinion why a classical Paleo Diet only works for certain individuals with a special lifestyle and biological make up
He says intermittent fasting, from Dinner to Lunch has a quite positive effect on most people…
For ongoing chronic digestive issues He recommends white rice, butter and a couple other supplements including a liquid vitamin
He suggests most people are not dehydrated and are taking too much water, as the water in coffee, tea and all have generous supply of H2O and count as water, contrary to what most water advocates say.
Proteins take an average of seven hours to digest and to layer up one meal on another is the beginning of digestive issues.
Too much water can dilute HCL in the stomach
We should have, according to Mr. M, a bowel movement for each meal and one can judge ones health on appearance and odor
Konstantin says the whole fiber thing is not well thought out and a major problem for humans eating more and more fiber
Here are some of the emails Mr. Monastrysky addressed during the show:
ken in Florida asks: Do you do liver cleanse?
What does his wife eat at her one meal ?
What does Konstantin think about urine pH. Should urine pH be within
a certain range, and what does highly acidic urine signify?
Can we test our stomach to find out if we need to supplement HCL?
