paced lifestyles that they lead. It is very hard to optimise the digestive process under these circumstances. Stress & Digestion When your body is under stress of any kind, blood is diverted away from the digestive system and into the central nervous system and muscles. This is a survival mechanism - the ‘Fight or Flight’ response - that is designed to help animals survive in times of stress. If you think of a time when you were under a lot of stress, for example, after a relationship break-up or bereavement, you may recall that your appetite disappeared for a few days, or even weeks. When your body is in an emergency situation, the last thing it wants you to do is sit down and eat. Your digestive system gradually becomes less and less efficient under stress, which is why it is so important to minimise the intake of all foods that cause stress on your body. As mentioned previously, these foods are:      Gluten-containing foods Processed milk products Sugar Caffeine Alcohol    Margarine and vegetable oils Soy All processed foods

As long as these foods are causing stress on your body, by producing inflammation, damaging your gut lining, lowering immune function and raising cortisol levels, I guarantee that your progress towards optimal health will be significantly slower. Chew Your Food Properly The digestive process begins when you chew your food. Chewing breaks down solid food and mixes it with saliva. By chewing food adequately, you increase the surface area of the mixture so that acid and enzymes can break down the food more effectively in the stomach. Saliva also contains amylase, an enzyme that helps to break down the carbohydrates found in fruit, vegetables and beans. If you do not chew your food thoroughly, you effectively skip the first stage of digestion, which places greater pressure on your stomach and makes the entire digestive process less efficient.

Chewing thoroughly also helps to release parasites that may be hidden in your food. The acid in your stomach will be more effective in killing the parasites once they are exposed. If they remain hidden in large chunks or particles of food, the stomach juices may not have adequate contact with the parasites to kill them. You should aim to chew your food until it is liquid. Chewing anywhere from 20-40 times per mouthful should accomplish this. HOW TO EAT MORE RAW FOODS BY USING VEGETABLE JUICING Juicing is a fantastic way to accelerate your journey to optimal health. What Are The Benefits? There are three main reasons why juicing will help you: 1. Juicing helps you absorb more nutrients from vegetables. If you have H. pylori, gluten sensitivity and associated gastrointestinal damage, you will not be digesting your food effectively. Even if you are eating fresh, organic foods, you may not be deriving optimal benefit from them because you simply cannot break them down. Juicing essentially pre-digests your vegetables thereby reducing stress on your digestive system and allowing you to derive optimum benefit from the vegetables. 2. Juicing enables you to eat raw vegetables easily. The cooking process actually removes nutrients from vegetables. By juicing, you have easy access to all the nutrients in the raw vegetables without the need to expend energy digesting them. 3. You can add a wider variety of vegetables to your diet. If you do not rotate your food regularly, you run the risk of developing food allergies to the foods you eat most. This is especially the case if you have a damaged digestive system. Juicing allows you to rotate your vegetables and also eat ones that you may not like because you can mix them with other vegetables and foods. Vegetable Juice is not the Same as Fruit Juice Most vegetable juices do not cause large fluctuations in blood sugar, but fruit juices do. Major fluctuations in blood sugar levels are a major cause of stress on your body and should be avoided. Along with mental and emotional stress, hidden inflammation from gluten and digestive infections, unstable blood sugar can place a huge demand on your adrenal glands.
- 85 – © David Hompes, 2008. All rights reserved. www.davidhompes.co.uk www.h-pylori-symptoms.com

Fruit juice can cause unstable blood sugar whereas most vegetables will not. High levels of sugar in fruit juice can cause a surge of sugar into the blood, followed by a steep drop. When your blood sugar drops too low, your adrenal glands have to make cortisol. As has already been discussed, high cortisol levels can reduce immune function. You should therefore only juice tiny amounts of fruit and take care with vegetables such as carrots and beets. These below-ground vegetables are higher in sugar and can cause blood sugars to rise too steeply, leading to a sharp drop. Nevertheless, one or two small carrots and a small amount of beet can work well to enhance flavour and add additional nutrients to your juice. Juicing For Breakfast Breakfast is typically a meal where people do not eat vegetables. However it is easy to consume vegetables for breakfast if you juice them. Which Vegetables? Some of the best vegetables to juice are:         Celery Cucumber Courgette / Zucchini Fennel Carrot Beets Green apples Unripe pears

Do not use more than one to two small carrots or a small piece of beet per sitting. If you would like to add a little fruit, I suggest half a peeled apple but no more than that otherwise your blood sugar may go too high. The next set of vegetables to introduce can include:     Lettuce (all kinds) Endive Escarole Spinach (baby spinach is good)
