Heard this one from my mum and my bf has heard this one before too from his teacher.
Haken’s “Virus” is undeniably one of the best albums of the year. it’s so heavy, on top of being packed with a story and several musical easter eggs. Messiah Complex, however, has stuck with me more than the rest of the album. it’s so heavy and creative. it is genuinely some of the catchiest heavy music i’ve listened to in years.
i hope Virus holds up in years to come, because it’s truly fucking amazing.
If you're trying to go to sleep with a full stomach or heartburn, try sleeping on your left side. Studies have shown that sleeping on the left side can decrease acid reflux. Also, sleeping on the left side may allow gravity to naturally aid in digestion.
I’ve been trying alternate day intermittent fasting 3 days/week for weight loss (and hopefully preservation of muscle) for approx. 1.5 months and have had amazing results on the scale! However, I’m a bit worried that its affecting my digestion and wanted to see if anyone else had had this issue (and if it sounds like a red flag – I’ve asked my doctor, who basically said she doesn’t know anything about IF, so don’t do it).
I find now that when I do eat, I get full faster and stay full for much longer - hours and hours, like I would almost struggle to get enough calories in for the day when I do eat. It definitely feels like I’m not digesting food anywhere near as quickly as I used to, and I’m quite bloated/full if I try to eat my usual amount, or even drink a lot of water or liquid with a smaller meal (I was probably eating portion sizes that were too large before this, but it still never left me feeling this full and for this long).
When I am fasting, I’m regularly drin... keep reading on reddit ➡
I mostly vaporize my herbs, and i wondered if there is a herb i can use for irretable bowel syndrome or if i just get cramps when i am somewhere. What herb could help here? And does vaping help in this case?
So what do people use to capture articles, emails, posts, tweets etc for reading/digesting later before moving required sections to your note-taking app of choice...Roam in this instance?
Usual choices here are Pocket and Instapaper..are there others?
What is something that these apps don’t do well? Where do they fall down for you?
For me, I use Instapaper but I quickly fall behind - way more in than out. That’s primarily down to me and my efforts but the application itself does nothing to assist me. Maybe I’m expecting too much.
Anyway, interested in people’s thoughts.
Hello guys! It's my first time here in reddit and I have a question in my mind how is the speed of digestion and absorption of different types of food is affected. For example if you eat high GI carbs with low GI carbs would the low GI carbs affect the speed of digestion and absorption of the high GI carbs or the high GI carb will be digested and absorped fast with no affection of low GI carbs and the same question with high GI carbs and fats.
Thank you all!
(For context I have a miniature dachshund who regularly poops in the mornings and most days he poops in the evenings.)
My friend is studying to become a veterinarian and she told me that giving my dog a little bit of pumpkin with his breakfast can help him poop more regularly and also increase his fiber intake as well as soothe his stomach and aid digestion. I did however, forget to ask which pumpkin would be best. If anyone has given their dog pumpkin before, I’d appreciate some tips! Is canned pumpkin safe to give my dog? Is there a specific brand that might be safer than the rest?
I've lost about 18lb/8kg on keto and wasn't overweight to begin with but would like to put that (or at least some of it) back on as muscle. I have used protein powders in the past quite a lot as I've trained a lot in various sports and never had any major stomach issues, but I've started using an unflavoured micellar casein and have had quite bad constipation. I used it for a week then stopped to see what the cause was and everything went back to normal i.e. once a day, as soon as I wake up. I left it a few weeks and just started using it again, just one serving (in unsweetened almond milk) and I'm back in the same position. I can't recall what I mixed it with the first time so I guess it could be the powder or the milk.
I've checked the reviews on the product and can't see any mention of similar issues. I've also done a general search on the web and found a few posts on bodybuilding forums etc which cover the same topic but not many. Has anyone here ever had the same issues with eit... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hey guys m, so I just fed my baby hognose snake yesterday and I wanted to know if 24 hours is enough for him to be handled again or should I wait at least another 24 hours? He ate a pinkie so I’m hoping it won’t take a long time for him to digest it.
In addition to the awful period cramps, my stomach just feels all around unsettled. I notice a slight change in bowel function during that time, especially when my period is the heaviest.
What fun it is being a woman, eh?
Hey y’all. We know rapid digestion happens because of the increased histamines in the digestive tract. Has anyone with diagnosed MCAS lost a bunch of weight due to this? Ive noticed what I’ve eaten is already coming out within 12-14 hours of consumption...

According to digestive testing, these are all supplements I need to take. Can someone tell me the order to start them in/which ones not to take together/how to take, etc. Thank you!!
Items: --Betaine HCl (I think this is the only thing for low acid?) --Digestive Enzymes? (For malabsorption) --Ox Bile? (14% gallbladder EJ, no stones) --Probiotics? (Dysbiosis) --Prebiotics? (Is this necessary) Help me with order/use of these? What's most important?

How can one injest mushrooms safely and in a yummy way without the feeling of wanting to vomit ? Even after digestion of raw mushrooms, the burp sometimes makes me more dizzy while tripping and more nauseous as a sensitive person.
Any of you on low carb diets, especially higher fat ratio- how long do you wait after a meal before running? I almost always run in the morning and when I'm forced (schedule issues or wake up late) to run in the afternoon, it's BRUTAL. Even if I wait 3-4 hours after a meal, I feel like I'm going to throw up, heavy, even shaky. Does the higher fat content require a much longer period before your food is digested and you can run with no issues? What's your typical window like?
Thanks in advance!
For the longest time I would go number two maybe once or twice a week sometimes I wouldn’t even go within one week. I thought this was normal until recently I started living with some friends and they asked me why I don’t got everyday? I didn’t know my bowel movements were so irregular but it makes sense. I’ve had crazy bloating issues for as long as I can remember. According to my parents even as a baby I didn’t go number two much but this was because my moms milk was very nutritious and that there wasn’t much to poop apparently lol. So far I’ve drank more water and exercised more but to no avail. I recently talked to my doctor and they told me to take laxatives, but its been about a month and I’m still taking them. I don’t want to become dependent on laxatives. Any tips and advice will be appreciated. :))
It makes some sense to me that it would, I am looking for some advice on how to use it for digestion, before or after a meal? Thanks in advance
Besides fatigue, digestion is my next big issue. Just thinking they might be connected.
Around day 12 I was feeling fine minus the few occurrences of feeling tired because I was bed ridden for almost 2 weeks. I had about 5 days of feeling normal and I was still quarantine so my brother was giving me my meals. I ate healthy for the most part minus the ego waffles he would give me for breakfast. I should mention that I had a bad case of diarrhea for like 8 days and was working on getting my poop to form normally again. My doctor said that it might feel uncomfortable and it will take some time. Eventually it did go back to normal but then I developed stomach pain at the top of my stomach and lower abdomen area. At first it would come and go. And I even went to the emergency room after I got out of quarantine. They gave me meds and told me to take anti acids for a few days. What the hospital gave me worked after a couple of hours and I felt like myself again. But 2 days later the pain came back. Probably cuz I wasn’t able to take the strong anti acids that they gave me.

I couldn't find anything about it online, so that relieved my concern a bit. But I recently started taking magnesium bisglycinate for anxiety. It worked well. But I've popped 6 times in the last 48 hours. This isn't diarrhoea or anything like that, normal size fully formed poop. Usually I poop once daily or even every 24-36 hours. My diet is good and high in fibre , so I'm worried magnesium is just shooting all this healthy food through my system at 3x the usual speed and I don't see how this could not have at least some kind of negative effect on the amount of nutrients absorbed in my intestines. . Anyone else had this issue ? Which forms of mag are least laxative ? I am taking 150mg per day but I've only been taking it for three days so maybe I'm just adjusting, but still i wasn't expecting such dramatic change to my bowel movements from such a moderate dosage!
I’m trying to reset my boyfriend’s digestion since he’s had a really bad month with gluten contamination. Im tracking a long list of ingredients that are easily digestible, but what are some of your go-to meals when you’re sick?
So I want to rejoin the low carb club! Every time I go low carb I have major digestive problems (sorry for tmi - constipation).
What exactly and how much do eat to avoid this? I really want to avoid this nightmare. Upping my fiber just sounds to vague. Psyllium husk did not help that much tbh
Everytime I eat McDonald's (I know, I know, it's my weakness!!) I poop it all out like 1-2 hours later? And I don't even have any belly aches or anything, easy to pass and all Wondering why it happens but when I eat healthy my gut goes craycray
Hello, I have a 2 year old dog who loves chewing. Before we got her adequate chew toys she chewed on chairs and bed frames because she loves chewing.
I’ve been reading a lot about the dangers to teeth and digestion from bones breaking teeth or splintering and I was wondering what you all think is safest? Currently we give her this roasted marrow bone: https://app.chewy.com/AMrTz4Ge98 and Benebones and the stuffed bones with peanut butter filling. I am unsure of what is the safest for digestion and preventing teeth breaks. I left a message at the vet but I feel very nervous about this after reading some teeth breaking/digestion horror stories. What is the safest option for a dog that absolutely needs something to chew on?
For a start, Sorry for my english. I have had digestive problems for about 6 years now. A stool test told me that I lack lactobacillus but I also hear that not all stool test are reliable. I am starting to believe that maybe it can be psychosomatic. I see a lot of you mentions the book mindbody prescription by John Sarno. I am 32 now I have have been suffering from anxiety and depression in my early 20’s. I am what you would describe as a sensitive person. I am very aware of my surroundings and I get a lot of inputs when I’m out I the public. I would like to know how many of you in here feel the same and if you have any experience with the state of your mind and your digestive problems?
All the best
If only I knew sooner about the major importance of digestion & gut health, and how it affects every aspect of your health and well-being... and how negatively coffee / caffeine affects it, especially for someone sensitive to its effects...
Luckily I am only 24. This one aspect is probably my main motivation to stay off the bean.
Wondering if ND currently carries any supplement that can improve digestion?
Ginger extract would have been a great one I guess, but is not sold on its own unfortunately.

For years now, like 10+ years since I was a teen, I have been experiencing very low energy levels, lack of condition, low blood pressure/lightheadedness and problems digesting certain foods, for example soups and meat with very high fat amount, as well as all sorts and types of milk (lactose or not, cow, soy or almond), all these foods/drinks make me feel instantly "filled" after just one or two spoons and cause me to have weak, but unpleasant burps, as if I ate too much and am about to vomit, even though I'm not.
As for the energy, I am working a physical job in a factory, so I depend a lot on energy and there's some jobs I can't do at all because my energy drains extremely quickly and doesn't regenerate, for example other guys can use a hammer (made from hardened rubber, so not even a iron hammer) to beat some metal parts for longer periods of time and I can swing the hammer maybe 5, 10 times with medium strength and after that I ca... keep reading on reddit ➡
Is there any evidence (scientific or otherwise) to support either soluble or insoluble fiber being more beneficial for dairy consumption? Thank you.
As title says I'm 6 months post OP, I've been having ups and downs ever since the surgery, but I noticed recently my digestion has been very weak and slow. Why did it get worse?? I don't get it.
Even when I take enzymes to aid it, I feel like my stomach can't handle foods very well anymore. The only thing I can eat which causes me no problem are soups and broths, solid food of any kind will cause me to feel bloated and like I've eaten an entire cow. I'm not kidding.
I also have green diarrhea so I wonder if its too much bile going down my system, idk. I take metformin for my pcos so I kinda always had diarrhea anyway, but its been worse lately.
I'm eating very little, and whenever I'm hungry I feel an uncomfortable pain. Its not the normal feeling you have when you're hungry, more like gnarling pain itself. And then when I eat, I don't feel well, more like heavy and a bit of agony.
I'm happy I'm losing weight, but I don't feel well by what little food I can eat is not giving me mu... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm wondering if anyone has experience with changes in DNA concentrations after a restriction enzyme digest (I'm using 3 separate REs). In my mind, the same amount of DNA is still there, so the qubit concentration should be about the same, just cut up. However, my samples are dropping in concentration after the digest.
Is this a normal expectation, or is this abnomal?
Edit: The loss is not due to bead cleanup, as that was done after the concentration was checked, it is not due to dilution of the sample, as the loss is much greater than how much it was diluted. It appears I lose ~90% of my DNA sample during the digest and ligation stage.
I was on a soft food diet after a gum surgery, and now that I can return to my usual diet, I can't seem to digest anything. Within 1-3 hours after eating, I have a sudden onset of gas (both ends). It's not particularly painful but is VERY uncomfortable. I've never been on a soft food diet for more than a day, so I haven't gone through this, and it's caught me off guard.
Do you have any words of wisdom for how to transition back to my normal diet? Thank you!
It's all shit
Man i can't take this anymore. I tried digestive enzymes, probiotic drink, drinking more water, multivitamin, staying away from gluten and lactose. NOTHING HAS HELPED. I Started exercising because many here recommended it and i'm still here.
I have to burp alot and i get hearburn + shortness of breath all day long. I'm done with this. I'm planning to go back to smoking on monday.
This FAQ from Mayo Clinic says water with meals helps digestion and to break down foods yet doesn't say how that works.

So i saw so many people had problems with Digestion so here's the solution:
M1 Lipocyte: divides to m2 and m3 quickly ( 0.50 h age of division )
M2 lipocyte: divides to m4 and m5 quickly
M3 lipocyte: divides to m6 and m7 quickly
M4 flagellocyte, never split, normal speed or a bit slower
M5 phagocyte, never split
M6 Keratinocyte, splits to M6 and M1 at 3.29 mass NG with an 285° angle, mass priority 1.47, Child 1 Angle 75°
M7 Secrocyte, never split with lipase secretion
Make sure to uncheck "conserve adhesin" in both M1 children
Has anybody improved their digestion? I'm 7 Creon 24's and it still seems like food is going through me. I end up going to the bathroom 5-6 times a day. I've tried Zepep and no improvement. I started Trikafta in Nov. and haven't seen any digestion improvements since starting.

After eating healthier for about a week now, I’ve been going to the restroom more often and no longer have constipation. Is this a good sign? Is it normal? Help!
How to get better digestion? I experienced some constipation ( 1 Bowelmovement in 5 days) i have been eating high fat already. Is Raw cheese good Some People say Cheese causes constipation other say it makes them more regular. I wanna try some raw cheese for the probiotics.
I had digestive problems with this way of eating up until a few months ago, and it only stopped when I cut out salt.
It made no difference when I ate, how much I ate, or even the fat:protein. Eating was always an issue until I cut out salt.
I just wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this, and if so did it make a difference what kind of salt you used? I've only ever used pink himalayan salt, but am considering trying redmon real salt.
Also have you had any issue with electrolytes if you take them? I'm thinking about trying some sodium, magnesium, and potassium packets and seeing what happens.
Very much the title. I am investigating some possible food sensitivities and want to experiment with eliminating and then re-introducing dairy and gluten. I was wondering what the effect would be on my microbiome and if I could lose the specific microbes for that food component. If I would then re-introduce the gluten in that example I might have a bad reaction to it, not because my body is actually sensitive to gluten in my baseline situation but because I now not receive any help from my microbiome. Any thoughts?
No gut issues btw, also had my gut microbiome sequenced end of last year and have a good diversity there.
I’ve seen other posts by IBS sufferers testifying to good experiences with MDMA, and I can personally attest to all my stomach symptoms disappearing completely while rolling (on several different occasions), though unfortunately the effect doesn’t last after the drug wears off. Over the 3+ years I’ve dealt with stomach issues, I’ve unfortunately not found any other prescription meds or recreational drugs to cause such a stark reduction of my symptoms. So I’ve begun wondering about the physiology behind MDMA's effects on the digestive tract (I know it works on gut serotonin, for example), and whether these effects could be replicated by another (safe, long term) treatment, perhaps a prescription drug with similarities to its chemical makeup. Perhaps there’s a clue here that could lead to an effective treatment for me?
Any tips or explanations welcome.

About 5 weeks ago I went in for an inguinal hernia repair on one side. Since then I have experienced a lot of bowel movement issues and am concerned I may have some obstruction.
(Surgery details: Laparoscopic surgery under general anesthesia. 3 incisions in the abdomen to insert a 4"x6" mesh. The procedure went well according to doctor's notes. The post surgical diagnosis was a large "indirect" inguinal hernia as opposed to pre-op diagnosis of small inguinal hernia. I believe part of my intestine had been inside a canal on one side where the hernia was.)
The first few days I was OK and I was having semi regular bowel movements with the help of Colace stool softener. Though I had one extremely painful movement where I was having trouble getting stool to move and was in a lot of pain and had to stand and hold both arms on shower curtain rod. Probably 8/10 pain. Second worst poop of my life.

A few weeks ago, my husband and I came down with something we assumed was Covid. I had blaring pain behind my eyes, low grade fever, and trouble breathing. He had a high fever and severe diarrhea. We both tested NEGATIVE for Covid TWICE. While the tests have crazy high false negative rates, at this point I have to accept the result. Whatever we came down with, it has affected our GI tracts pretty severely. Im fully recovered from the acute illness symptoms, so is my husband, but my IBSC which I had fully under control (with Miralax and Intestinal Movement Formula) is so bad nothing except enemas will work. My husband on the other hand is still having daily diarrhea.
I guess I'm looking for encouragement and to know I'm not alone. I haven't felt this awful in a very very long time.
I just want to ask since I have a lot of time in this quarantine, does grinding vegetable scraps better than just cutting it to small pieces? Or is it bad because some nutrients may disappear in this process?
So yeah basically its been 4 years since my recovery and I still feel and see that my body isnt able to digest most of the foods I didn't ate when I had an ed.
And I still need to have special conditions 2-3h after I eat: 1) cant sit 2) have to either lay down (which always makes me nauseus and feel sick but no stomach pain and extreme bloating) or stand up ( the best option).
Sooo it makes really difficult to go to school or work... most of the days I literally skip the lunch (when im at work/school) and eat something my body is 100% comfortable with (like bananas) and I know it sounds like im trying to eat less and relapsing but trust me: ed is a mental problem and in my head its all figured out and i dont feel bad after i eat a lot, it just makes me sad that my body doesnt let me eat normally again :(
I’m starting to think digestion is heavily related to flare ups and pain.
Why? Because I’ve heard success stories with all of these:
-stretching -fasting -diet
If done right, all of these help with digestion.
Just something I wanted to call out and I’m going to put more thought and research into.
Magnesium Citrate success?
Hi all, A few months ago after a few weeks of a restricted diet, I (31F) experienced a crazy gas pain attack after eating a large “cheat” meal. I’ve never had an issue with gas at all before that day. My stomach was in so much pain that I needed to vomit but couldn’t so I had to make myself vomit a few times. This was about two months ago and since then my digestion has been all over the place. I was constipated a few weeks ago but regular now. I have gas almost every day all day regardless of what I eat and some stomach discomfort. I take probiotics and eat healthy foods. I’m wondering if my unhealthy binge and restrict cycle led to a screwed up gut. I just spoke to a doctor via teleconference and she told me to drink half a bottle of magnesium citrate and be on the BRAT diet for a few days in order to clean me out. I know that the doc knows best, but I’m very nervous about taking a laxative and making my digestion worse. Anyone here able to get back to nor... keep reading on reddit ➡
