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 -

Gluten

Dairy

Wheat

Corn

Shellfish

Soy

Eggs

Peanuts

Other Inflammatory foods are -

Sugar

Fried foods

Trans fat

Red meat

Artificial sweeteners

Alcohol

Refined vegetable oils

Soda

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.
