For many years I thought I had IBS, irritable bowel syndrome. I had looked at reputable sites on the internet and read about symptoms, I read a lot at a support group for IBS and learned about trigger foods. And I sounded like a text book case.
I could not eat eggs, lettuce, corn, okra, tomato skin or milk and milk products. If I did I ended up with bloating, really bad stomach cramps and diarrhea. All typical symptoms of most people with IBS.
So I avoided all those foods even though I had eaten them when I was younger with no problems. Years have gone by where I could not eat some of my favorite things. That's a real bummer.
Then this past Easter I made deviled eggs (a favorite) with eggs from my friend's chickens. I ate 3 halves knowing I would pay for it later. But I never had even a twinge in my gut. What just happened? And how and why?
Well the chickens are free range birds and are fed a totally organic, non GMO diet. You would not believe how dark yellow those egg yolks are. I experimented again later on by eating 4 halves of deviled eggs....absolutely no problems.
Next I tried corn, we bought some organic corn on the cob which was a little pricey, but I ate a whole ear with no aches or cramps or being up all night. So I tried canned organic corn, no problems again, even when I ate a whole cup of it. Same result with frozen organic corn.
I grew lots of tomatoes this year, from organic seed, and have had no issues no matter how many I eat raw.
It used to be just iceberg lettuce that irritated my gut, but then I started having issues with romaine and other types too. Until we bought organic lettuces. Now I can eat salads again.
My conclusion is that it was not IBS but a reaction to the GMO food sources and the pesticides and herbicides used on the food. I believed that GMO food was not good for us, how can chemicals never meant to be in food be good for us? And maybe for some people they will never cause an issue, but if so then why are there so many more people with gut issue diseases now? Every other commercial touts a new drug for IBS, Crohn's or any of a number of gut diseases. And the side effects of those drugs are horrible, mostly they destroy your kidneys & liver.
I learned a lot about gut health from a doctor in my hometown in MI. He has some wonderful YouTube videos that explain what causes some diseases and how to cure them with your diet. The truth is that we are slowly being poisoned by big ag's and big pharma's attempts to make more money.
