Stomach Health for Total Health

My diet was the biggest contributor to keeping a healthy stomach.  I planned my food around what would help maintain or benefit my stomach’s health.  Organic, alkaline foods that are not yeasty and are lightly cooked are best for overall intestinal health.  This means limiting or excluding all wheat, cheese, dairy, meat, sugar, caffeine, and peanuts from my diet.  See ‘Healing Foods by Health Category’, page 81 of Wellness Wisdom, for specific foods that support intestinal health.  A few of the best foods include miso, millet, quinoa, small amounts of organic yogurt, cruciferous vegetables, carrot, winter squash, blueberry, apple, ginger, cinnamon, allspice, burdock root, oregon grape root, licorice, slippery elm, and komboucha.  In addition, a strong probiotic has always been part of my daily routine.

Essentially, you control the health of your stomach by what you put into it.  It is that simple.
