Updated: Nov 25, 2019

If you're currently experiencing gas, bloat, cramps, constipation, and bladder pain after eating, then you're searching for answers. You're ready to end your misery once and for all. I know I have been there.

Why is it important to identify what foods might be bothering you? Stopping the inflammatory cycle and addressing the root causes is the only way to get complete resolution of symptoms. A functional medicine approach involves looking at the interconnection between systems as well as the function and dysfunction.

Where there's inflammation there will be warning signs from your body along with the dysfunction. If you're experiencing burning and frequency after eating foods then zooming in and considering only the bladder will not find the contributing factors. Look at the whole body. Same with the gut, what is leading to your gas, bloat and distress after eating.

Let's look at the Top Inflammatory food list -









Other Inflammatory foods are -


Fried foods

Trans fat

Red meat

Artificial sweeteners


Refined vegetable oils


This list can be overwhelming. I educate all my clients to ADD in a healthy alternative to their favorite food before SUBTRACTING a food from their plate.

I can provide a customized recipe menu plan for 7, 14, or 21 days specific to your dietary preferences and particular needs.

A balanced plate includes a lean protein, a healthy fat, and fiber from veggies or fruit. If you follow this guide, your body will be getting a variety of phytonutrients, amino acids, vitamins and minerals needed to function.

Healthy fats include olive oil, avocado oil, avocado, nuts, olives, seeds (chia, flax, pumpkin seeds) sorry not cheese, bacon & butter.

Lean protein should be grass-fed, hormone free, antibiotic free & organic when possible. It’s the quality that’s important.

There are many plant sources for protein- chickpeas, beans, legumes, lentils, hummus, quinoa, pea protein, tofu, and bean sprouts.

I support your work through your foods, lifestyle and review lab work to discover the dynamics going on within your body. I recommend supplements for a short time as needed or functional medicine tests. I love the GI Map test and offer to all my clients.

The goal is restoring healthy balance and function to your digestive tract as well as your bladder.

The journey is not linear from point A to Z. I wish I could tell you that when you hire me you would be 100% in one month. It takes time and I like for clients to commit to 6 weeks minimum and ideally 3 months to give time to explore and fully work through your main health concerns.

I hope this list helps you become aware of foods to consider removing for a trial period and discover if you feel better. Removing foods is temporary and when your gut is healed most are able to reintroduce foods back into their life.

I took the long road to recovery. There is no need for you to travel this road. I maximize what your body needs and help you create a healing environment along the way to restore your balance and health much quicker than if you go it alone.

Happy Health!
