Bloating after consuming anything (even water). Tried all alternative solutions.

    I have started CT, Vit D3 over the last 2 weeks and have noticed the distension is slightly less but still very prevalent.

    I asked Dr. K about the tests in the link below.


    I have been thinking my condition sounds like non ulcer (functional) dyspepsia so to test this I am going to do a few days fast once I am cold adapted until my bloating is gone. Then slowly add food back to hope that my body can better fix itself when inflammation/bloating is reduced for a few days. Can't see it working but I am fresh out of idea's.

    Keep me updated on your progress.

    The two things I can think of which might help if all other things seem to be under control re: hormone and DHEA status would be to use inulin (benefibre) and the betaine HCL and/or other digestive enzymes.

    I am in experimental phase of using betaine HCL and benefibre. I have used betaine and benefibre before and probably saw improvements but there were so many other variables/interventions involved that make it difficult to to parse out. I then discontinued all interventions since epi-paleo b/c I felt so amazing and 'cured'. lol Things were so super for end of July, August and most of September. I did notice great deterioration since end of September and that I have been continually 'fighting' something off. If not for epi-paleo, I would not be confident in my health at all right now. I did keep catching some kind of infections and it was getting progressive/unable to recover properly. So now I go back to using betaine and fibre, so far so good (in a few days) but it's hard to tell for sure since I seem to be getting rid of residual sx simultaneously.

    So let me know if inulin + betain/digestive enzymes help at all. (O btw, the inulin I only started since yesterday and the betaine I've been taking for ~5 days). If i get the same results as I did in July...then I KNOW it's the ticket for me and that epi-paleo is just a super charger on top of that.

    Thanks for the comment and I'm glad it's working for you but I have extensively tried betaine hcl and inulin to no positive effect. It seems like nothing I do can stop it aside from not eating...

    O, sorry to hear. That is surely unusual. I don't know if you have some parasite or infection that causes this. Who knows. It could also be some structural defect which you have, that would then cause the same sx as other chemical causes. I'm not a dr. of course---so I can only extend my support and hope that you can figure something out.

    If you can afford it, perhaps schedule a consult with Jack. If you do, make sure you have some decent labs available for him. I wonder also if you've discussed this before with other dr.s/specialists.

    How are your sx these days? Did you experiment with the fasting and re-introduction of food? I seem to recall you had mentioned you might try this test.

    sx = self experiment, yeah?

    Yeah possibly a parasite but I have done so many things to try and get rid of parasites and nothings changed so I don't think so.

    Probably not a structural defect as this problem only came about after I got a stomach ulcer.

    Can't afford anything atm, minimum wage w/ zero hour contract.

    I have tried fasting before and eating reduced amounts of food for a while both of these keep bloating at a lower level but I have found even when water fasting my stomach bloats from drinking water (slightly but noticeably).

    I am going to give fasting another go after I am done trying to cold adapt but I am not making much progress on that front either. 1.5 months of ice baths, face dunks, ice vests and I am still cold all of the time...
