Inability to Absorb Good Fats and Food Allergies
At times, one cannot break down and absorb good fats since the villi and lymph around the gut are congested. As a result, so many of us are diagnosed with wheat, dairy and soy allergies. Namely, these foods are heavy, harder to digest, and are high-mucus-content foods.
The gluten can irritate the intestinal wall and stimulate the production of even more reactive mucus if there is already excessive mucus in the gut, and the gluten was not properly broken down in the stomach and upper small intestine.
Thus, it can severely compromise the ability of the intestinal wall to act as a health barrier for the body. It is not that difficult to have to reduce or even eliminate these foods for some period of time, but it is extremely hard to eliminate wheat and dairy products completely for the rest of your life.
If you experience occasional constipation or loose stools, see mucus in your stools, it may be a symptom that your detoxification and assimilation pathways are compromised, so you will need to avoid certain foods, or eat certain foods to maintain regular elimination.
Furthermore, if you feel that a heavy or high-fat content meal just sits in your stomach or you get nauseous or experience pain after that meal, it is a sign that your bile flow is compromised and you are likely storing toxic fats.
