IBS and Digestive Issues: 5 Categories of FODMAP Trigger Foods Could Cause Countless Symptoms

Was it something you ate? 5 categories of high-residue foods known as FODMAPs feed bacteria to cause fermentation in the gut, leading to symptoms like cramping, bloating, heartburn, diarrhea, headaches, and even depression.

GMOs have been linked with intestinal and reproductive damage, food allergies, and even increased infant mortality! A GMO, or a genetically modified organism, was developed in a laboratory for agricultural purposes to help crops tolerate herbicides or work as a self-generating insecticide.
It should come as no surprise that genetically modified foods cause deep toxicity within the body. For instance, the genetic information found in GM soy can actually transfer to the bacteria into our inner ecosystem. GM foods have contributed to the development of many common diseases in the US, including premature aging, immune imbalances, gastrointestinal problems, organ damage, and more.
To protect your inner ecosystem, choose non-GMO, organic foods whenever possible. Keep in mind that many GM food crops may not be labeled, like corn, soy, Hawaiian papaya, some zucchini, and some corn on the cob. On top of that, make it a practice to eat fermented foods and drink probiotic beverages every day to populate your gut with friendly bacteria and heal your body from the inside out!

Must-Avoid Foods: Linking GMO to Toxicity and Disease

Genetically modified foods have contributed to the spread of some of the most common diseases in the US today. GMOs are considered a silent killer in the food industry - causing premature aging, reproductive disorders, gastrointestinal problems, and long-term organ damage.

For so many people, certain foods trigger digestive issues, while others don't cause a reaction at all. Many foods that wreak havoc on the digestive tract are high-residue foods, which leave behind large amounts of food particles that bacteria can feed on to cause fermentation.
Foods that ferment quickly in the digestive tract are known as FODMAPs. This fermentation quickly leads to symptoms like bloating, cramping, diarrhea, fatigue, headaches, and much more. Even though small amounts of FODMAP foods may be well tolerated, each person has their own threshold for these trigger foods that fall into 5 specific categories, including:
  1. Beans and lentils
  2. Wheat, onions, and cabbage
  3. Dairy
  4. Fruit, agave, and honey
  5. Xylitol
To get rid of unpleasant digestive symptoms and protect your inner ecology at the same time, consider a low-FODMAP diet used with the Body Ecology Principle of food combining. Just like the Principle of Uniqueness states, we all function differently. Make sure to track your FODMAP intake so that you can avoid trigger foods and keep your digestive health on track.
