Laura said:The following seems to be the step that everyone has been missing - at least probably those who are having problems transitioning. There are some things in this bit that surprised me.
Thank you so much for these quotes Laura, quite a few things hit home for me. This was extremely helpful, particularly the advice on digestion. I'll start straight on with her advice of smaller meals, as I notice that bigger meals can make me bloated and constipated for days, and be careful with the amount of fat, as too much of it at once also results in more bloating, more constipation.
This quote may be relevant for those of us experiencing nausea:
Important note: The one notable exception here is a person who may be experiencing gallbladder symptoms (gallbladder attacks, including aching pain under the right side of the rib cage, especially pain to the touch, or nausea at meals), in which case this should be dealt with cautiously, and a low-fat diet may be entirely appropriate until the issue is resolved. Consult with a qualified health care provider. Remember, don't be a hero and don't push it. Listen to your body.
In short, suggestion is that if too much fat is causing nausea, then decrease it a little for a while. I have been doing that lately and avoiding extra fats during meals, my abdominal cramps from splenic flexure syndrome (see _http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Splenic_flexure_syndrome for clarification) and nausea are basically gone, so that tells me I'm heading in the right direction and just approaching the whole high fat diet a little bit more gradually and carefully so as to give my digestive system time to heal and adjust.
I'm also going to try having 2 capsules of enzymes as suggested instead of 1, as with 1 I noticed no difference whatsoever.
There is one thing that made me confused though, right at the beginning of the first quote the author says:
Proline-rich polypeptides from bovine colostrum and whole, minimally processed, grass-fed, organic bovine colostrurn can also be of tremendous benefit in restoring heaithy gastrointestinal integrity and immune function over time. There are more than nine thousand studies showing grass-fed bovine colostrum's potentially key role in restoring gastrointestinal integrity.
Isn't colostrum a form of milk, and in that sense, dairy?
