Hi paleofriends I have just 2 questions , I really hope that someone of you would answer to me!
1 since 2 days I started to drink at night , green tea with 1 spon of turmeric inside ( I read about it properties ) but soon I feel nausea , and something strange in my stomach? why?
2 If I eat a lot of almonds , that day after my feces are really soft , It feels like insoluble fiber is not good for my guts. A person told me that If I can't tollerate insoluble fiber is because I have a disbios or a leaky gut. Is it true?
Concluding im 18 yo , italian , IBS sufferer , went paleo since 2 months to fix it.
Gooday paleo friends!
Green tea causes nausea in lots of people, myself included. Try cutting it out and see if the nausea goes away! Quick fix. Almonds and other nuts can also easily cause digestive distress in some people. It doesn't necessarily mean that you have a leaky gut, but then again it doesn't mean that you DON'T have a leaky gut.
Dysbiosis at least is not related to insoluble fiber. Soluble is the kind bacteria eats easily.
As for the tea and tumeric, if it makes you feel ill, dont do it. Both of those are high in all sorts of bioactive phytochemicals and polyphenols, and exert many effects on the body. If yours is saying it doesnt like it, id listen...
Yes, you're right about the benefits of ground Turmeric. It has been extensively used for skin care. Actually, in some countries women use herbs like Turmeric to lighten their skin. They also use or mix it with a little water to form a paste and rub it over their face. As for the issue of your sun damage, you may want to blend turmeric powder with milk and apply on the face. It removes the tan as you scrub it off with a good face scrub and then wash with cold water. You can also apply turmeric powder along with limejuice as it also helps in removing the tan. Limejuice is a natural bleach.
This turmeric infusion (without green or black tea) is the one I really like: http://frugallysustainable.com/2011/12/building-your-medicine-chest-turmeric/
I also blend a teaspoon of organic turmeric in my green tea and drink it every morning. You have to acquire a "taste"(tolerate)for it and the benefits to your health. I've come up with a mixture for green tea that doesn't make me nauseated. In my stove top teapot I fill and bring to a boil then remove it from the stove. I mix 1 teaspoon of stevia, 7 green tea bags and 1 vanilla chai spice teabag. I steep for about 30 minutes. The stevia and vanilla chai flavors over powers the green tea. After I have my tea I mix 3 tablespoons of Golden Root flaxseed to my Silk soymilk and drink it. I feel very full for hours from the flaxseed. Flaxseed is also good for you. I've tried several flaxseed brands and when I came across the Golden Root brand it has a nice sweet flavor, mixes better and it has a wonderful flavor,
Regarding Green Tea and Turmeric, they seem to be very potent modulators of the immune system, and seem to work in opposite ways: green tea might up-regulate TH2 cytokines whereas Turmeric might with TH1.
I say this because depending on every one's current immune system the response might be different. That might be the reason why some people thrive on tea and some other don't. I like coffee and tea a lot but I noticed when I keep using them for many days I have a lot of headaches and feel overall bad. With turmeric, the opposite seems true for me, I feel great always after having a salad with some on it, so now it's a staple for me.
Maybe it's not related with your issues, green tea is excitatory and acidic in the stomach so it might be another cause, probably THE CAUSE, as many others pointed out already, but well, I wanted to point it out the immune system thing so you might find some clue.

As for almonds, I don't seem to be very good also on them, and it's more or less accepted that they are hard to digest. I do best when I have almond butter instead of the whole nut, I don't very often nowadays though.
Very interesting. I have just started taking tumeric, mixed with black pepper and olive oil, as I understand it is difficult to get it to be absorbed on it's own. I sprinkled it in and mixed it and drank it down. Both times I felt a bit sick and queesy in my stomach. I hvae often had a lot of pepper and a lot of olive oil before with no problem so it is caused by the tumeric. I would like to persist with it somehow without this horrible feeling. If I take capsules and also the olive oil and black pepper maybe this would work better. Carmel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
