In this video, Dr. Berg talks about fiber and constipation. The recommended 7 to 10 cups of salad every day is not just for the purpose of fiber, but for the nutrients, phytonutrient, minerals and vitamins. The fiber will help to feed the colon, but if your digestive system is compromised and you don’t have the capacity to digest too much vegetables it will cause gas, bloating and pain.
Conditions Which You Would NOT Want to Consume Fiber
• Abdominal Pain
• Food Allergies
• SIBO or Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth
• Rectal Bleeding
What to Do?
• Intermittent Fasting
• Cut out fiber including vegetables for a period of time
So I recently had another question related to someone having constipation and she wanted to know, should I consume more fiber.
Let’s just dive in and talk about it. Fiber is one of those things that they will tell you to consume to prevent colon disease. Right? You’ve probably heard that a million times. It actually does not prevent colon problem and i’m gonna put some links down below, you got to check this out. In fact, nearly every single recommendation that they will tell you, someday I’m gonna find out who they is, is not just completely false, it is the complete opposite in many cases. And a lot of the studies they use involving fiber is not from vegetable fiber, it is from gar gum or some other fiber. So you need to know that. Now, I am the gut that recommends 7 to 10 cups of vegetables or salad every single day but not necessarily just for the fiber, it is for the nutrients, it’s for the phytonutrients, minerals and vitamins and things like that. Yes, the fiber will help because it feeds the colon but if your digestive system is compromised and you don’t have the capacity to digest this much vegetables, what’s gonna happen is when you add all these vegetables you’re gonna get gas, bloating and pain so here’s are the condition which you would not want to consume this much salad or vegetables or fiber. If you have constipation, diverticulitis, bloating, abdominal pain, IBS, food allergies, SIBO, in which you have too much bacteria in the small intestine when you should have it in a large, if you have hemorrhoids or even rectal bleeding – so being constipated is very similar to the traffic in Washington DC right around 4:30 or 5 o’clock in the afternoon on a weekday. It is so congested bumper to bumper you’re not moving at all, in fact, I’m in Virginia now coming here I was in the traffic jam, it took me forever to get here. Do we add more cars to the congestion? Do we want to add more fiber to a colon that’s already impacted? It’s illogical. We don’t want to add more bulk to a congested colon. What do we want to do? We want to do intermittent fasting.
