Be Kind to Your Large Bowel
Re: Could you please name some foods that help strengthen / soothe / heal the large intestine?
Basically, the answer to your question involves a food’s digestibility (poisons excluded, of course).
For example, venison is more digestible than beef because it stays in the stomach for only an hour, while beef often takes four hours.
When the stomach isn’t up to par, the large intestine gets overworked.
Food should exit the stomach in a fluid or semi-fluid condition.
The vermiform appendix is a “second stomach,” and not a vestigial organ, as mainstream medical scientists now claim.
The digestibility and the transit time are more important to the large intestine than specific foods.
Breakfast should be in the toilet by suppertime, lunch by breakfast time, and supper by lunchtime (for most people).
Eggs are one of the best foods for the large intestines.
TIMESTAMP eggs by eating them at night. Circulation-Sex Time (7:00-9:00 p.m.) is ideal.
Not only do eggs supply get-up-and-go, they also supply “satisfying power.”
Yes, junk food also supplies “satisfying power,” but self-observation can detect the difference.
No medical doctor can measure “satisfying power.” It’s independent of calories or milligrams.
Avoid omega-3 enriched eggs.
Walk big circles around them.
DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and flaxseed (linseed) contribute to Yellow Fat Disease.
Beware of processed dietary fiber.
Even a little can be too much.
Kay R. McPherson (“Fiber, stool bulk, and bile acid output: implications for colon cancer risk,” Preventive Medicine, Jul. 1987) wrote …
“Most types of fiber increase the total volume of stool and reduce the concentration of specific substances, including bile acids, that are in contact with the bowel wall. However, fibers differ in their effect on stool bulk, with wheat fiber being a more effective stool bulking agent than fruit and vegetable fibers. In addition, the extent to which a specific fiber reduces bile acid concentration will be modified by its concomitant effects on total fecal sterol excretion. Whereas wheat bran reduces fecal bile acid concentration, pectin, lignin, and oat bran do not. These three fibers significantly increase total bile acid output. Bile acids act as promoters of colonic tumors in mutagenesis assay systems and in various animal models.”
