Food Combining Means No Heartburn

FOOD COMBINING: The Secret to Healthy Pain-Free Digestion

Think about this:  the classic American diet is why you don’t feel well.  Meat and potatoes, ham on rye, tuna and noodles, eggs and bacon and toast or even the venerable cheeseburger on a whole wheat bun.

The bad news is that together those combinations are making us fatter and sicker.  The good news is that you can still eat all of the above, but you must eat these foods in the correct combinations or you’re going to feel bloated, gassy, tired and many other less than ideal conditions due to improper digestion.

Digestive problems begin when you eat improperly combined foods day after day. This stresses your digestive system and can cause serious digestive conditions like diverticulitis, gastritis, colitis, IBS, Crohn’s, ulcers, acid reflux etc.

Different food types trigger the release of different digestive enzymes, some acidic

and others alkaline.  Both are necessary for our lives.  But when both types of digestive enzymes are trying to work on improper food combinations at the same time, problems  can develop.  The alkaline and acid enzymes neutralize each other to the point where digestion is greatly impaired and your food does not get broken down.  Instead of being nourished, you get cramps,  acid reflux, constipation, heartburn and other fun things.

Eat What You Want – Just Combine Foods Correctly

Food combining was developed almost 100 years ago by Dr. William Howard Hay, a

prominent New York physician.  He wanted to cure his own health and developed what he called the Hay Diet.  Since then, modern medicine and big pharmaceutical companies so dominated the 20th century that the simple, common sense techniques of food combining got sidelined by antibiotics and surgery.

Food combining is a way of eating foods so that the digestive process can work.   Fruits, vegetables, carbohydrates, proteins and fats, all require different digestion times and digestive enzymes, in order to be broken down and utilized by the body properly.

The foods you eat should have approximately the same digestion times and use complimentary digestive processes to break them down.

Protein foods (meats, dairy) need an acidic environment in the stomach.  Carbohydrates (starches and sugars), require a much more alkaline environment and are digested in the intestines.  When you put meats and carbs together, you prevent your digestive system from doing its job. In doing so, you have slowed the digestive process down to almost a complete stop.

Combining is actually quite simple.  Foods are put into three distinct types:

Type 1 foods are relatively neutral and pass through your stomach with little or no digestive enzymes required to break them down: fruits and vegetables.

Type 2 foods require alkaline digestive enzymes to break down, beginning in the mouth with the enzyme ptyalin and continuing in the stomach and small intestine: carbs and vegetables.

Type 3 foods need hydrochloric acid and pepsin in the stomach: animal proteins and dairy.

When you combine your foods properly, you can still enjoy the foods are used to without pain for discomfort.  We’re not talking about restrictive diets, just a few simple guidelines. You don’t have to go hungry, or only eat grapefruit for two weeks… Just combine your foods properly and your digestive system will reward you handsomely.  It works fast too.  You can notice the difference in as little as a day or two.
