Today we’re going to talk about the best and worst foods for lower abdominal pain.
There are many different causes of lower abdominal cramping or pain. But, in my opinion, we can usually trace the problem back to the person’s diet and malabsorption.
If a person has a problem with malabsorption, they may also experience bloating, diarrhea, or loose stool. The more inflammation or gut problems you have, the more sensitive you’re going to be to certain things like gluten, lactose, fruit, grains, legumes, beans, nuts, and seeds.
A good thing to consume would be a stew with homemade bone broth. The collagen in the stew is great for inflammation in the gut. Adding vegetables to the stew is also fantastic because they will cook down to the point where they shouldn’t bother your digestive system.
High-quality saturated animal fats are important to help support the gut. This means the meat you add to your stew should have skin on it and should be fatty.
Lactose-free whole-milk kefir or lactose-free goat milk kefir is also great to help support healthy digestion. To support the colon, you may want to consume probiotic foods. Ghee and fermented vegetables may also be beneficial.
The best vegetable for digestive issues is cabbage. This may be because it contains sulforaphane or certain phytonutrients. Even people who have digestive problems like gastritis or irritable bowel syndrome may find it easier to consume cabbage.

In there we want to cook this to break Down the collagen it's really good for Inflammation in the gut and also if you Put vegetables in there like cabbage and Carrots and other things they're going To cook down enough where they're not Going to bother you at all but here's The thing when you want to heal the gut You want to actually do a little more Fat you don't want to do lean protein You want to do kind of a fatty protein Not a lot but just sufficient amounts And that fat shouldn't be from coconut Or other types of plants like corn oil Or soil oil or things like that your fat Should be saturated animal fat it's Going to help your colon heal so when You put the chicken in there make sure The Skin's in there when you put either Lamb or some type of meat make sure you Put fatty Cuts now another thing you can Have is if you do a kefir if you could Find a lactose-free kefir so that way You won't have any sensitivities and if You could actually find a lactose free Goats kefir that would be the best and Do the whole milk and if it's organic That would be even better right that Would actually help you another thing in Small amounts to help fortify those Little colon cells would be to consume Some Probiotic foods there's a good Amount of bacteria in raw cheese Unfortunately in America most of it is
