Add to the soup mix that when we digest foods, we must have good stomach acid, so those taking ant-acids or are mineral deficient run into the first hurdle People who are fast eaters, or are not mindful of what they are eating are not giving their stomach a chance to make good, healthy stomach acid to do the job at hand - breakdown proteins, kill bacteria and tell the rest of the digestive system what is coming down next. Result: under digested proteins putting more stress on the small intestine; bacteria entering into the small intestine and creating the environment for SIBO or IBS!
Solution: Mineral therapy with a reduced trigger foods for approx 2 months. A prescription of probiotics to help reduce gut irritation, and monitoring emotional and food triggers.
