If you wish to clear your digestive system of debilitating gut illness such as Irritable Bowel (IBS/SIBO), Crohn's disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Celiac Disease, Diverticulitis, Cystic Fibrosis, or Chronic Diarrhea, and Joint Pain then The Specific Carbohydrate Diet Food List may be helpful.
I am a holistic nutritionist that uses Shiatsu and Kinesiology Healing protocols to uncover nutritional imbalances and guide people who suffer chronic illness to recover through Shiatsu Acupressure Massage, Exercise Therapy and Dietary intervention.
I highly recommend Taoist Abdominal Massage which is very thorough for removing old faecal waste, bad bacteria, toxins and disease, rebalancing & healing the organs, glands, meridians and cleansing blood and lymph. Indeed it clears the gut dysbiosis at the cause in the mind and nervous system.

Recovering from any illness requires commitment and understanding. Book a consultation with me to see if I can help you to clear your symptoms and heal the cause. Many times it is stress in the mind, emotion or environmental factors that cause disharmony in the gut. I find the practical application of integrative Kinesiology and Shiatsu, Movement and Dietary interventions are more likely to succeed, especially with a supportive guide.
Prebiotics feed our beneficial microbiota. Although there are supplements containing prebiotic fibers, there are many healthful foods naturally containing prebiotics.
The highest amounts are found in raw versions of the following: garlic, onions, leeks, asparagus, Jerusalem artichokes, dandelion greens, bananas, and seaweed. In general, fruits, vegetables, beans, and whole grains like wheat, oats, and barley are all good sources of prebiotic fibers. I like fermented vegetables and sauerkrauts, if you can digest the cabbage!
High intake of prebiotic foods, especially if introduced suddenly, can increase gas production (flatulence) and bloating. Individuals with gastrointestinal sensitivities such as irritable bowel syndrome should introduce these foods in small amounts to first assess tolerance. AND it is really worth introducing them!

Fresh, unprocessed meat, poultry, fish, shellfish, and eggs
