Many patients who come for acupuncture and homeopathic treatment for digestive problems need to change their diet. Improper food combining is one of the primary factors that cause reflux, gas, flatulence, heartburn, and upset stomachs etc. But even when people have a healthy diet, are chewing their food well, they can still have problems. And when I test patients for food intolerances using Health Kinesiology sometimes nothing much shows up. That’s when I advise them about Food Combining (or Food UNcombining!)…
I usually find this may be the cause in patients with a weak digestion. Then they have to be careful about what foods they can eat together. There are some quite simple food combining rules which should be used as a guide as they are based on the experience of other people. But each person’s digestion is different to another person!
If you think that you need to do Food Combining yourself then you should keep a food diary so that you can see what food combinations don’t suit you. I can also test most food combinations using Health Kinesiology with the various allergy test kits in the clinic.
