I am not sure what it’s from. yesterday i went to a picnic with a bunch of little kids there. there was lots of fruit but some was not organic or washed. i did not really combine fruits well. kids put their hands on it and they may not have been very clean. i had melon with other fruit, etc. my stomach started hurting right after i came home and i was pretty gassy.
today it was out anniversary and we went to a new raw foods restaurant i had never been too. i’m sure it was all pretty high fat. my stomach felt awful after it and then i came home and got even sicker. i had loose stools and most of cramping and gas. i tried some tummy comfort tea and water and later a banana to see if it would settle down. nope, it just keeps getting worse. it feels like i have tons of gas inside me and it tries to come out through burping, etc but then builds up again. i am getting bad cooked food cravings too. i haven’t had those at all lately. i am not sure if i have a virus or bad reaction to something that was not organic or just too much fat today or what.
any other ideas for relief? i am going to get some ginger tea. i’m trying not to eat while i feel sick but for some reason i feel very hungry.
I think you have a bug from dirty hands, either the kids or the people who handled the fresh foods that were sold. The same thing happened to me a few weeks ago after eating fresh produce at a very pricey restaurant buffet. My stomach cramped up after about 20 minutes and wow, gas, bloating, the runs, for about 36 hours. People don’t always wash their dirty hands in the food business after leaving the toilets. I was a waitress and only clocked one person who ever washed their hands. We are so gross here. Anyhow, I just avoided fats and nuts for a couple of days and increased bulky fruits like apples and bananas while lessening my daily greens somewhat, just sat the illness out. Some herbalists like to use fennel for gas. Personally, it gives me acid indigestion. I hope you feel better soon!
I have had that reaction with melon eaten with other fruits. I am not perfect with the food combining thing all the time but I never eat melon with anything else and I give it plenty of time to digest. Hope you start feeling better.
thanks guys. i can find some fennel. it grows all over the roadsides out here! i ate some fruit this morning. so far, better.
