View Full Version : Why am I having Absorption issues? - going to the bathroom more than usual

Before I heard about raw, I was on a strict cooked paleo diet for a few months.
I went raw two weeks ago and everything was fine and I was absorbing everything correctly, but I stopped the diet temporarily for 1 day and ate potatoes, homemade macaroni and cheese and goose meat for one day. I had bad digestion movements the next day most likely because of the macaroni and cheese.
But then I went raw again. A couple days I included nuts and seeds. And then I went on just eating fruits and vegetables. Then I went back to nuts and seeds again. Its been a week since, and now I am eliminating many times a day and having absorption issues. Like the fruits and vegetables are not digesting or something.... and I look in the toilet and I can see undigested food and fiber pieces.
I am getting skinnier and I am already skinny :(

you keep changing what you eat somewhat wildly. It's no wonder your digestion is all to pot!
Goose is very fatty and known to be difficult on the digestion and on top of that you ate cooked wheat and dairy!
Try eating simply from a not too broad spectrum of raw foods for a couple of weeks and give your digestive system time to recover. Be sure to eat nuts on their own and especially not with fruits as the combo doesn't produce a good digestive result.
I can't point you to a specific video of his, but Dr. Robert Morse N.D. addresses having undigested food in the stool and getting thin because of malabsorption. The name of his channel is robertmorsend and at the end of each video is the phone number of his clinic in FL, so you can give them a call as well. *Ü*

Those food that you mention are mucus forming, you need to get back on raw food and consider to stick with vegan food and as much as possible raw food (Ideally 100%). These mucus forming food age you, deprive you from your vitality and lead to so much health problem. Not to mention that they turn on cancer in you if you have any dangerous toxin in you. They are also acid forming. Your body work to keep you alive, if your body detect acid in your blood it will utilize as much calcium as possible event if it means to take it from your bone to keep your blood stream neutral. If your blood stay acid your lose and adios. Any animal product especially dairy is so much acid forming and mucus forming. This is some problem but if you have weak kidney and adrenal already, with adding these proteins, it will weak them even more and therefore your system of filtration to get your toxin out will shut down or won't do their job properly.
You are best to go with plant food diet and raw food for vitality and powerful healing. Eat your fruits and greens (herbs such cilantro, parsley, dandelion etc...) and don't go nuts on nuts because you need to focus on healing for now. Raw gourmet only to help you to transition to raw food.
Without question, visit dr. Morse youtube (morsend).
All the best

Starches in heavily processed pasta form a glue inside the intestines, that sticky paste lines bowels for 80 hours or more interfering with absorption. The intestines then tire themselves out trying to move this impossible substance along.
You may benefit from a natural laxative like prunes, followed by a little extra roughage with psyllium husk and wheat germ.
