When one begins The Sunfood Diet, fermentations may occur which form gas and flatulence in the intestinal tract. This may have several causes which are listed below:

  1. When Sunfoods reach plaque encrusted intestines (impacted with mucus and hardened fecal matter), they will not digest properly and a fermentation will occur. To alleviate this situation, one should have a series of 5 to 8 colonics conducted by a registered colon hydrotherapist and also undertake an herbal cleanse such as EJUVA (please call Nature's First Law at 888-RAW-FOOD for more details on this cleanse).
  2. Foods are being combined haphazardly in less than ideal combinations. It is best to eat one type of food at a time, waiting twenty minutes to an hour to consume the next item.
  3. Foods which are difficult to digest, such as bean sprouts, wheatberry sprouts, or soaked oats, are eaten in large quantities without being mixed with a sufficiently large quantity of green-leafed vegetables
  4. Overeating apples and pears (or their juices). These foods contain large quantities of pectin and other bowel cleansing compounds which can increase flatulence.
  5. Undereating sodium-residue foods - especially greens (kale, celery, dandelion, spinach). These foods cool the intestines. When the intestines are heated by too much potassium or sulfur residue foods, flatulence results.

If one repeatedly experiences gas and fermentation from eating sweet fruit as a mono-diet, this could be a sign of a candida infection. If this is your situation , please review Lesson 13: How To Use The Sunfood Triangle under the section Eating To Overcome Candida.

Natural healers know that snake bites are dangerous, not only because of the venom, but also due to the fermentation they cause in the tissues. Ice on a snake bite will halt fermentation (and also decrease circulation to slow the spread of the venom). To stop digestive fermentation, place a cool object or ice-pack on the diaphragm, or get into cold water. Sucking on ice cubes for 15 minutes may also be helpful.
