Particular attention to the tomato, a plant for centuries consumed in small doses (as a medicine) in its country of origin (the South American continent): its excessive consumption favors colitis, stones, cysts and joint problems.
Legumes Various types of fresh and dried legumes Legumes include all types of beans, lentils, peanuts, edamame, and soy products. Many of these are prime foods for people who, with all good intentions, are looking to go on a vegetarian diet. But lectins and phytates from legumes can be difficult for some to digest. Carbohydrates are a food much loved by the intestinal bacterial flora and release gas by consuming the starches of legumes. While legumes don’t cause you to over-gas, they can still put stress on your gastrointestinal and immune systems.
Foods for people who, with all good intentions
Peanuts can also contain aflatoxins (toxins produced by a mold) while soy contains phytoestrogens. Of all the legumes the latter two are the most harmful and most commonly give intolerance. Watch episode 29 of our podcast dedicated to cooking legumes to learn how to cook legumes and make them truly digestible5. Eggs Egg is a very nutritious food, especially the yolk, but it can be a problem food for some. In fact, egg white is more immunoreactive for people.
The white protein, albumin, can travel through the gut wall if you have leaky gut syndrome, contributing to inflammation. Red is typically more tolerated, although it’s important to note that some people don’t even tolerate yolk. FODMAP This strange acronym stands for Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides, and Polyols. In short, these are foods that naturally contain fermentable sugars.
These short-chain sugars are not fully digested in the intestine and can be excessively fermented by the bacterial flora. This fermentation releases hydrogen gas which can lead to bowel distension, which can give IBS symptoms to some people, such as pain, gas, bloating, constipation and diarrhea.
IBS symptoms to some people
Most of the foods rich in fodmap are fresh and “live” foods. But when it comes to natural food, not everything goes for everyone. Here are the foods you should avoid if you have irritable bowel syndrome symptoms to heal your gut: Vegetables: artichokes, asparagus, beetroot, celery, garlic, onion, leek, legumes, cabbage, peas, sweet corn. Fruits: apples, mangoes, nectarines, peaches, pears, plums, watermelon.
- milk, cream,
- ice cream,
Cereals: rye, bread containing wheat, cereals, crackers, pasta. Oil seeds: cashews and pistachios Fructose, one of the FODMAP sugars is one of the most common causes of intolerance. Fructose intolerance often occurs in people who frequently have stomach pain and bloating. The goal of treating an intolerance to FODMAPs is not to eliminate food forever, but to heal the intestine in order to eventually gradually increase the intake of these foods, especially fruit and vegetables.
Dairy products Casein, the protein found in milk and its derivatives, is another food that is often intolerant. The cows in most factories are gorged on hormones and antibiotics, live in poor conditions, and are fed corn instead of grass. Their milk is usually pasteurized and homogenized and the fat is removed. To make up for this poor nourishment, synthetic vitamins are injected into the milk, trying to simulate what nature has already included in the whole form. Remember that ghee does not contain casein or lactose, so it can be consumed even if you have these intolerances.8. Nuts and oil seeds Oilseed fibers, as well as lectins and phytates, can irritate some people.
