Kinna: Welcome to Kick It Naturally, I’m Kinna McInroe, and I’m here with
T.C Hale, author, natural health expert, producer and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
Tony: Welcome to Kick It Naturally, I’m Kinna McInroe. Aw…I’ve got the wrong script.
Kinna: Hm. Yeah.
Tony: T.C. Hale and…
Kinna: It’s T.C. Hale in the house.
Kinna: He’s being funny today, people.
K&T: Oh no!
Kinna: We also have, something’s different, Will? Oh, you shaved.
Will: I did shave.
Kinna: That’s it! Okay, we have Will hottie patottie Schmidt here today and he shaved off his goatee, so that’s what it is.
Will: I think I look more anglo-saxon now.
Tony: It comes and goes rapidly.
Will: It does.
Kinna: Yeah, it’s already growing back.
Will: It’s that protein synthesis.
K&T: Uh huh.
Kinna: I will say it’s different, but I do think it takes a couple years off.
Will: Wow, so I look like I’m 12 now?
Kinna: Exactly! You look 12.
Tony: 12, 14ish.
Kinna: Uh huh. Exactly. Well, boys, what’s up with you guys today? Anything exciting going on in your lives?
Tony: I have pockets in my pants.
Kinna: Oh, that’s fun.
Tony: Yeah, so I can keep stuff there.
Will: I have some fun recipes. Stoked on our protein powder is getting closer.
Tony: Yeah. It’s coming around.
Kinna: Wow, all right. Cool! Am I gonna get a big discount on that powder?
Will: If you’re nice to us.
Tony: You’ll only have to buy a big crate full.
Kinna: Okay, I see how you are. Okay, well if you have not liked us on Facebook yet, then what is the problem? What’s the defugalty people? Have y’all heard that word before? Defugalty? The word defugalty?
Will: I thought you stuttered. Defugalty?
Kinna: It’s an old word. An old Texas word, I guess. Uh, but you need to pull over, stop whatever you’re doing, even it’s dangerous, just stop and go ahead and like us at kick it in the nuts on Facebook and that’s where we’re going to post topics, every single week, about future shows and you guys can post any questions you want us to cover in the show.
Tony: I think we’re going 6 figures this week.
Kinna: Oh wow!
Tony: Like 100,000 fans, which they’ll certainly cut us off at that point.
Kinna: I thought you meant my paycheck and I was like that’s a big jump.
Tony: It’ll be different than your paycheck.
Kinna: It jumped a bunch of figures.
Tony: Like 5.
Kinna: Yeah. I’m not even getting paid. Okay, so today’s topic is nausea. Being nauseous.
Tony: I think it’s weird that we have a show where we talk about things that make people throw up.
Tony: We should do that more often. What else? We could do like a bulimia show? That’d be a good one.
Kinna: That’s a good one.
Tony: We could do a show on rollercoasters.
Kinna: Uh huh. Have y’all seen that thing on YouTube about the kid, he’s a little heavy kid and he’s scared to get on the rollercoaster? He actually does nearly fall off, but the woman beside him doesn’t know it the whole time and it’s like strangling him.
Will: Oh my gosh!
Kinna: And yeah and he’s like Janice, Janice and she’s just laughing and has no idea and he’s like dangling.
Will: That’s hilarious.
Tony: Oh, wow.
Kinna: But it was hilarious. He made it.
Tony: Where is this rollercoaster?
Kinna: I have no idea.
Tony: Cause I don’t want to sign up for that one.
Kinna: Yeah, I just watched this video that somebody sent me and I cracked up.
Tony: That should be required viewing before you go to the amusement park that day cause it makes everything like 10 times scarier.
Kinna: Exactly! So being nauseous, you know, sometimes I have this. It seems like in the Summer when it’s really hot, what’s up with that? I get like to where almost like I’m hungry, but I don’t even want to eat, which is odd because that never happens, and so then it’s like ew, I just feel kinda sick and gross to my stomach, so it’s not fun.
Tony: Well, let’s talk about what makes somebody nauseous before we get to like turbo things like that cause that’s advanced.
Tony: So and this is a big deal for a lot of people and a lot of people that deal with it like their whole life and they just get used to I’m going to hurl at any minute. Um, no matter what they eat and we’ll hear from people today with these questions that that’s just how it is.
Kinna: So when they do get pregnant it corrects itself and they don’t get sick.
Tony: Right, then they don’t get sick.
Kinna: So then they’re like I just want to live pregnant.
Tony: Uh huh, but there’s a lot of different reasons that someone could be nauseous, but today we’re going to talk about the most common that we see.
Kinna: Oh, working for Tony?
Kinna: Oh, that’s not it.
Tony: I don’t understand. Oh, that makes you nauseous.
Kinna: That’s the most common.
Tony: Yeah, that’s what I see everyday cause the people that are working for me want to throw up. Um, no but we kind of view it as for the most part a toxicity issue that comes about from the body’s inability to give rid of junk. So, a lot of times when you’re feeling nauseous it’s the body saying look I can’t deal with everything thing that’s going on so don’t put more stuff in here that I have to deal with. It kind of keeps your from eating most of the time. It makes you not want to eat.
Kinna: I usually work through it.
Tony: Yeah, you power through, but um, and the reason that is is because digestion takes more resources than almost anything that we do. I mean, people think I’m just eating that doesn’t take a lot of energy, but to actually digest food takes a lot of resources, a lot of energy so when the body’s dealing with some other situation a lot of times it’ll put forth this feeling of hey, I’m gonna give you this feeling so you don’t put anything else in your gullet so I don’t have to deal with that too type of situation. So, uh, before we get into questions and stuff I’d like to talk a little bit about liver function and Will knows some stuff about liver function.
Will: That’s the German pronunciation.
Tony: Yeah and I want you to talk a little bit about how that relates to bile flow and the liver’s exit strategy and stuff like that.
Will: Yeah and it’s great to think of kind of like a pool filter or like the plumbing system in your house like that’s how poop literally gets out of the system, right? So if your plumbing was backed up you couldn’t get rid of that waste and it will reflux. Literally the bile, which has all these crazy little poison toxins that your body has filtered out and done a great job as well as your own cellular debris that are supposed to be dying off. All that is supposed to get excreted out through poop and when it doesn’t it can reflux back into the blood and that feels like you’ve just been poisoned a little bit.
Tony: Right, just a little bit.
Will: Just a little bit, right and the more that goes on the worse you feel and so your first priority if you’re experiencing chronic nausea is usually to look at liver function. If you have good bile flow or not and if you don’t, it’s a great idea to take steps to correct it. Our normal tools are like beet flow and coffee suppositories and that kind of stuff. As well as like what are you doing that might be getting in the way of it. Are you taking like birth control or serious meds that like block up your liver?
Tony: Right, right, so some interesting things that you can do for yourself. Because the big deal, you know, nausea can be caused by things you’re putting in your body, but a big factor, the first one I think you have to look at is, does your body have the ability to get rid of the junk? So some things you can look at are like you can look at your saliva pH. If it’s like 6.0, if it’s below 6.5, that’s usually a pretty strong indication that the liver is having a hard time.
Tony: It’s getting beat up a little bit and it can’t handle getting rid of all the junk that it needs to get rid of and you would want to test that at least 2 hours after a meal. Don’t eat something and test it because then it’ll be higher. Um, another thing to look at is your stool color and if it’s lighter then the color of cardboard that’s a good indication that your bile is not flowing cause bile is dark. Um, maybe talk for a second, Will, about acne and skin issues and how that can be an indication too.
Will: Yeah, so we’ve seen that a lot with clients that come with acne and they’re using all these external skin care products and sterilizing the heck out of their face and they’re still getting all these eruptions to their skin and that’s because the body has all these backup systems for detoxifications, cause it can’t let those toxins and poisons and dead cells and all that garbage stay in your blood cause that’ll kill you.
Will: So, it’ll send it out through all your pores and your skin and you’ll get these breakouts and rashes and itch. And that sometimes starts to happen when you first start to correct your bile flow, like if you’ve been on meds for a long time or have liver damage. When you start getting it to move, like say you do a beet flow flush, sometimes the worse off your liver’s has been and the longer it’s been backed up, the more often people have like itchy rashy stuff that they’ve got to work through for a couple of days because the skin is trying to get rid of those toxins that are now mobilized. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, it’s kind of an uncomfortable thing, but it’s better to get those toxins out of your body then leave them in there. The cleaner you get your bile or the more you get it to flow the more consistently the less your skin will have to do the dirty work and your complexion will clear up.
Tony: Right and Will’s talking about using a product called beet flow it’s just a product that contains a lot of beet greens in it and the beet green juice tends to help the bile thin so it’s easier to flow. And there are a lot of reasons that someone’s bile could be too thick and/or not flowing very well maybe we’ll cover a couple of them, but it’s really really common. Like it’s so common like Will and I have a protein powder that we’ve developed and it’s that we’ll be putting out soon and we put beet greens in it just because we find that it’s that important to help someone get the bile to flow better any way you can. There are other things you can do though we use like coffee suppositories where you take coffee and you cram it up the back door.
Kinna: Nice. Cream or sugar with that?
Tony: Yeah, cream and sugar up the butt.
Will: No sugar.
Kinna: Ahhhh! Stevia?
Tony: Um, and that seems to thin bile from the other direction, but the big importance for this is that your liver is made to remove toxins like we know that. A lot of the foods and the processed foods and the junk we eat is toxic to the body. It doesn’t mean we can’t eat it because the body is made to remove this junk, but the bile is the main pathway for the toxins that the liver filters out to be removed, so when that’s not working all the sudden the body just a little bit screwed and it doesn’t have an exit strategy for all this stuff and it starts to accumulate and then we start to feel lousy and then we start to feel nauseous. Um, and other things, we’ll talk about digestion and stuff that can create nausea too, but this is usually at least a factor if you have chronic nausea is that maybe it’s something else coming in that’s causing a problem, but usually it’s at least part of the formula that your body can’t get rid of stuff. So, there are some products that we use, but another big step is that if you can reduce the amount of these processed foods and seems that gluten is a big deal, a lot of grains can cause the bile to get thicker than it should and have a harder time flowing, so changing the way that you’re eating can help that as well.
Will: There are also a lot of toxins out there that are kind of hidden. For example, like the chlorine in our water.
Will: There’s some recent research that we were looking at that shows for your bile to be healthy it needs a few different nutrients like Glycine and Taurine and Phosphatidylcholine and those also get used in other processes. Like the neutralization of like the toxin that your body experiences as chlorine, so if you’re drinking a lot of chlorinated water or there’s chlorine in the water in your showering in or you’re bathing or swimming in all that, that’s using up some of the constituents or resources that your body would like to use to make bile. That can kind of mess with your bile/salt production so, it’s good to kind of cover the board and look at all the different sort of things that you can do to make your world and the exposure, the toxic exposure that your body is facing less, so your body can just do it’s job better.
Tony: Right and here’s another factor with bile and then maybe we’ll move onto something else. I’m just really excited about bile right now.
Will: Yeah, it’s really awesome.
Kinna: Yeah, you’re all about bile.
Tony: Yeah, I’m very biley, but uh, if your nausea gets worse when you consume any type of dietary fats then that’s a pretty strong indication that your bile is not flowing because in order to digest those fats you have to emulsify them and we emulsify those with the bile. That’s what helps us break down those fats. So if they don’t get broken down properly then they kind of rot and ferment and they can become toxic and the body will really try and push them out through the skin, but you know that can really attribute to the nausea as well.
Will: Yeah and if that’s the case then like even though you may read like in some of your books or courses that because you have a particular imbalance certain fats are good for you, it’s not good to eat them if you can’t digest them. So even though you may need those nutrients, if you can’t break them down, you’ve got to take steps to like enable your body to metabolize them first and then try to introduce them cause if you just try to jump into the diet full force and have a bunch of like coconut oil or butter…
Will: Or even olive oil if you heard it was good for you, it’s not going to go good. It’s going to make you nauseous until you fix that. Another sign that your bile might not be flowing well is if you’re having loose stools or diarrhea. You’ve talked about this a lot in the past, if that acid food sludge that leaves the stomach doesn’t get the bile to neutralize it the pH of it is going to be way too acid and your intestinal tract will freak out and just squirt it out of you as fast as it can.
Tony: Right, get this out of here.
Will: Right and if you’re experiencing…
Kinna: Squirt cheese.
Will: Right, also like one thing bile does is it stimulates peristalsis, which is like the natural smooth muscle contraction in the intestinal tract, so if you’re experiencing bouts of constipation alternating with like burning diarrhea that’s another thing that shows like poor bile flow. Cause you’re not getting that peristalsis and the acid food sludge is just sitting in the intestines until it’s like wait a minute, my hands burning and it poops it out really fast.
Tony: And constipation is another issue that I see a lot with people that are nauseous because, you know, if you poop once a week and your doctors like oh, that’s fine, some people just poop less, then you are a toxic individual. You’re full of crap basically is what’s going on because that stuff is supposed to leave the body and when it doesn’t it can get reabsorbed and now the body has to try and filter it out all over again. So, that can increase toxicity levels as well. So if you’re constipated you really need to fix that. And we have a FREE 4 week course on kickitinthenuts.com. If you know some of these things sound like oh, that sounds like something I’m dealing with I need to learn how to fix my digestion then you can learn in that course if you haven’t already learned about how to fix that in our books and stuff like that.
Kinna: All right. Are we ready for some questions?
Tony: Yes, I like to answer 7 questions.
Kinna: Okay, all right, Laura, from Seattle, Washington. I seem to get more nauseous when I eat more fat, like butter or olive oil. Should I stop eating fats? Will was just talking about this.
Tony: Laura, we just explained that.
Kinna: Did you not hear us?
Tony: Listen! Nausea can also make you not listen.
Will: Right, it’s distracting you.
Kinna: She’s got butter in her ears.
Tony: I guess maybe she asked that before we talked about it?
Kinna: Maybe, maybe? But basically you just have to qualify. You have to get your digestion good enough so you can eat the fats.
Tony: Right, but that’s good. We like it when things make sense. Like I get more nauseous when I eat more fat, then okay, then that’s a good confirmation that bile is probably not flowing and at least you can fix that and you’re not stuck with that.
Kinna: All right.
Will: We should also mention the gall bladder thing, if they don’t have one, at some point.
Will: So like if you’re trying to eat fats and you’re working on getting your bile flow to get going, that’s good cause it’s going to help get toxins out rather than your bile being crystalized, but to really digest fats well, if you’ve had your gall bladder removed you’re going to need to supplement with an external source of bile, like ox bile or something.
Tony: Right. I think we have some questions about that too, so maybe we’ll cover that more.
Will: Okay, we’ll get to that.
Kinna: Cool. Diana, from Corpus Christie, Texas. I get nauseous every time I eat and I’m not pregnant.
Tony: Yeah, that doesn’t seem fair. You don’t want that.
Tony: But some people really deal with that where it’s just like it doesn’t matter what they eat, so um, when we see this not only is it common that the bile’s not flowing and your can’t remove toxins, but when bile’s not flowing, you can’t actually break down your food. You need the acid from the stomach and the bile that comes from the gall bladder to meet and kind of sizzle and break all that food apart. Will, say fancy things about that.
Will: Fancy things! Well, there’s also bicarbonate, so we don’t really talk about it that often that the pancreas secretes.
Will: I don’t know if that’s really going to help, but it’s important to understand like if you don’t have both that acid and that bass you’re going to miss out on a ton of the nutrients in your food and it’s going to leave you kind of feeling depleted or hungry and your food may still just be sitting in you rotting and fermenting, so you’re going to feel this big nausea from your body doing all this work to neutralize the toxins of these like rotting foods while it’s still not getting any of the nutrition that you ate and that just doesn’t feel good.
Tony: Yeah, it’s just not, the cool kids don’t do that.
Kinna: You gotta have a sizzle. Yeah, jazz hands. All right. Simon, I feel nauseous in the mornings too. Why? Can you have Kinna read this out in a bad English accent please?
Tony: Simon’s got a request.
Kinna: Well, there you go. I’m sorry it wasn’t bad. It was really good. It was quite on point.
Tony: Well maybe can continue with Aliya.
Kinna: Aliya, from Saltwater, Arkansas. Why nausea always in the morning with no appetite? Not pregnant ever since I was young. You’re not pregnant ever since you were young or you’re not pregnant now?
Will: Or she’s not pregnant or she’s not sure? Cause there’s a question mark.
Kinna: Oh, maybe she has a question mark after it?
Tony: So maybe we need to require all questions to have a specific accent that they want the question asked in?
Kinna: Uh huh.
Kinna: All right. Just don’t give me Asian. We know what happened last time.
Tony: Yeah, that didn’t go well, but think about this Simon, um, so if you’re foods not digesting and you can’t break it down into fundamental nutrients like vitamins, amino acids fats, minerals, if you can’t break it down it still breaks down by rotting and fermenting, like Will was saying and when it does that, that creates chemical reactions and gases and all this stuff and that stuff is gross. So as all that gross accumulates in your body um, just think of it as your body saying, look, I haven’t finished dealing with what you put in here last night, please don’t put anything else. I’m in the weeds. I’m swamped. You know, so that’s kind of why a lot of people will feel nauseous in the morning and not really want to eat anything. They’re body is still dealing with what they ate last night.
Will: And when the pH’s of these systems like aspects of your digestion aren’t right. You get a lot of little critters in there that aren’t supposed to be in there. Like bacteria in your stomach that create these gross alcohols and you know.
Tony: Right, their waste product is kind of in your stomach. You’re living off of all this junk that they’re pooping out.
Will: It still amazes me like how many people say well aren’t you supposed to be alkaline? When we explain like the stomach’s supposed to be really acid.
Will: But everyone thinks oh, we just need to keep alkalizing and they’re allowing all this bacteria to like live in the stomach when they neutralize the pH there. And those little guys as well as the intestinal tract if that pH is really alkaline it will also not sterilize the situation and it will allow different bacteria other than the flora that you want in there to persist and even if you’re eating healthy foods that are right for your chemistry they can screw with your whole like metabolism of it and take your nutrients and make garbage out of it.
Tony: Right, like we’ve all met that guy whose breath just smells like an open ass. It’s just horrible. Like you just can’t stand in front of them. That can be from oral hygiene, you got to brush your teeth just like your mom said, but more often than not, there’s a lack of digestion going on and that smell is all that food rotting and fermenting and that smell is coming back up the esophagus.
Kinna: Wow, and here I answer Simon. Simon, I am typing in a bad English accent right now. How come I get nauseous when it’s really hot out?
Will: You had to put your own in there.
Kinna: Yep, I had to get that in there. Y’all ready for that big bad boy question? Now are you all lubed up and ready?
Tony: I still don’t know the answer.
Kinna: Okay, he was just stalling. He was stalling. He was going to google it.
Tony: You know, but heat is another thing that the body has to, you know it has to do work to….
Kinna: Cool you down?
Tony: Yeah, to cool you down, to balance out you know body temperature and stuff like that, so it can be just one more burden. I don’t know other reasons that being hot would make you nauseous.
Kinna: Well clearly, I am a hot mess.
Will: You are a hot mess. I look at how I feel if I go into the sauna too long. It’s like if someone sweats out all their electrolytes or your electrolyte level is already low like your blood pressure is low, you can start to feel totally nauseous from an electrolyte deficiency and your brain doesn’t fire right.
Kinna: That makes sense. Also, I’m like, you know, from the Celtic world so I’m supposed to be in cold weather so heat, you know, is really hard on me.
Tony: Nina and I talked about this the other day in the gym after she threw up all over the bench press. That’s not true. She didn’t, but…
Kinna: She’s turning off his microphone right now.
Tony: Right. My mic is off.
Will: Now it’s the Will and Kinna show.
Tony: But I do see that a lot. Where you get a new client you push them a little too hard and then they hurl all over you. Um, but, my view of what’s going on there is that it takes so many resources for the body to digest food like we talked about, so if you’re doing some type of exercise or some type of situation that is calling for all these resources immediately, then I just view the body as saying okay, if you’re going to make me do all of that, then I’m going to send this food out, so I don’t have to deal with trying to digest it. Here it comes and you just hurled. So if you view it that way and you kind of understand that it can be so many different things, but most of those different things are a burden that the body is dealing with that is more than it has the ability to deal with.
Kinna: That’s why I nearly vomit when I’m around you.
Tony: Right, I’m just more…
Kinna: The burden my body is having to deal with.
Tony: I’m more than you can deal with.
Kinna: Exactly. I joke. Okay, Jaquelyne, I puked until I tore 3 holes in my stomach. Oh, don’t do that, Jaqueline. I was bleeding profusely.
Tony: I don’t know what to say about that.
Kinna: Get some spackle.
Will: The first thing I would say is like acid doesn’t burn holes in your stomach. It could definitely do it to your esophagus.
Will: Because you’re vomiting so much. I mean so if you have holes in your stomach it’s probably because some bacteria or parasite was able to grow in there and cut through like the lining, which is acid proof.
Tony: Right, for a long time we thought that acid made ulcers, but we know now that it’s bacteria that does that. So if that bacteria living in your stomach and blocking the ability for you to create acid, which some types of bacteria do, you can’t break down that food properly. You’re going to feel bloated and nauseous and that could make you hurl. Then those bacteria could have caused the actual ulcers as well.
Will: And once they do pierce through the lining then it can burn like the other, like the external lining of the stomach and that, taking HCL or your own stomach acid could make it worse or the holes bigger, so there are like some different tactics that we talk about on the digestive course and to deal with that once that happens like to help soothe the stomach lining and to starve out the bacteria.
Tony: Let it heal enough so that it can take the acid again.
Will: Yeah, and that can be a tricky little process to deal with, but it’s not the acid that caused that thing that also makes me think of like another really common experience of nausea that people have before it even gets to the liver and the whole bile thing is the whole upset chemistry of the stomach. Especially when they start taking the HCL and the stomach acid isn’t really on point and there are all this bacteria and the higher pH, a lot of people experience a lot of nausea initially and it’s really uncomfortable, but it’s a really important step to take anyway. And in most cases it’s just a matter of a few days of working through changing the internal pH of the stomach, but if you don’t do that you’re going to be left with kind of the compromised help, but that whole thing your pH is kind of acid, but not quite acid enough there’s going to be a lot of back and forth fighting between your stomach acid or supplemental HCL as well as the bacteria in the stomach and that can make a big fizzy volcano nausea mess.
Tony: Right, cause if your stomach and if you have no clue what Will’s talking about with HCL, we teach people how to, when their stomach is not making enough HCL, we teach them how to supplement with supplemental HCL capsules um, during a meal which synthesizes correct digestion by giving your body the stomach acid it needs if it doesn’t have the ability to make it on its own. So when you do that if your stomach is very alkaline already cause you don’t have stomach acid and all this bacteria is living in there when you start putting acid in there then they’re going to start getting real pissed off cause it kills them. So you could have a tough reaction there. A lot of times people who need more stomach acid the most are the people who have a hardest time getting it going, but we teach you how to do that in the FREE 4 week course too.
Kinna: Garrett, from Fonduelock, Wisconsin. How come I experience extreme caution when I’m coughing a lot? Hm…Tony? Will?
Tony: I think Will knows the answer because I don’t.
Will: I would imagine that this is kind of like saying that diabetes causes obesity.
Will: It doesn’t. There are corresponding symptoms. I mean, something is making them cough and making them nauseous. It maybe a couple of things, you know? But I wouldn’t blame the coughing creating the nausea.
Tony: Yeah cause I see a lot of people that have a chronic cough situation that is actually acid reflux.
Kinna: Heart? Oh, okay, cause I know some people that have that heart fib, the A fib thing it causes a cough too, with their heart. It’s a leakage.
Tony: I didn’t know that.
Will: There you go.
Tony: But with the reflux you cough because the body is trying to get the acid off of your esophagus and if you do have reflux, unless you have a hiatal hernia, you don’t have enough stomach acid. It’s not too much acid that causes reflux like people think and we won’t talk about that a lot in this show cause we have a whole show on acid reflux and GERD and you can listen to that on iTunes.
Kinna: That I just transcribed and it’s long so listen to it.
Tony: Right, right and you can find all of our old shows on iTunes by searching for “Kick It Naturally”. So if you’re having reflux then you’re not breaking down your food correctly and you could wind up feeling nauseous because of that like we talked about too.
Kinna: Debbie, from Floresville, Texas. My husband is nauseated all the time. What’s causing this? Whether he eats or not, maybe it’s Debbie?
T&K&W: Could be?
Tony: I nauseate Kinna, so I guess if somebody was actually married and not fake married like just cause we’ve been hanging out together for like 47 years.
Tony: That a person could get nauseous, but I think that’s probably not it.
Will: Yeah. There are so many things that can get in the way of bile flow. Like alcohol, long time uses of meds, even things you think are innocent like Aspirin or Tylenol can really screw up bile flow.
Tony: Or like bread. You know innocent like, you know, it is food.
Will: It’s true. So there are a lot of people who have a lot of different causes and sometimes multiple causes of what’s getting in the way of their whole bile flow. But there are proactive things you can do to facilitate getting it going and there are also like things you can do to stop stopping it.
Tony: Here’s what’s amazing is that and I think Will and I both see this with, you know, all the clients that come that are nauseous, a lot of book readers that we see in our private support group on FB that’s free, a lot of people that take the courses that they’ve had this nausea for decades for some of them, but if they can get bile moving and they improve digestion it just stops. Like it’s usually in a matter of weeks. Now some people need to do a lot of things to get bile moving if it’s really backed up or really thick and sticky and not moving, they may have to do a lot but it seems that once they get it going they just kind of forget about it. Oh yeah, I used to be nauseous. That sucked. I hated that. So don’t feel like you’re stuck. If you’re willing to do the work you can really fix it.
Kinna: Abe. Ab. A.B. Whatever. What do you think? Ab?
Will: Let’s go with Ab.
Kinna: Ab, from Hulopoe Beach, Hawaii. Mine comes in the afternoon. Please help.
Tony: Okay, just listen to everything we just said in the afternoon and that will help. So, if just kind of depends on when you’re eating. Maybe your body needs more resources earlier in the day? You know maybe your body has enough resources to break down some of your food some of the time? Or break down foods that are easier to break down. You know like a slice of bread, even though it’s not, it has issues that can stop your bile from flowing, it’s easier to digest than a steak. So it can depend on what you’re eating too. So if you’re right on the fence there you may only have nausea certain times or with certain foods. You may not be the person who is just nauseous all the time.
Will: You can also look at like, do you have a bunch of margaritas at 9 am? Cause by then you’ll start to sober up and you’ll be hung over around that time.
Kinna: Have you been looking at my food journal?
Tony: Yeah and if he’s having a hard time breaking down fats, but he’s eating bacon every morning, then by the afternoon he’s going to be nauseous.
W&K: Yeah. Uh huh.
Tony: So look at what you’re eating and what’s going on with your body.
Kinna: Ah…you just said bacon. Preesy, I have GERD. I get nauseous most of the time. She should listen to our GERD and reflux.
Tony: Right, but so that makes sense. If you have GERD you’re likely not making enough acid which means you can’t break down your food and you’re going to be nauseous.
Kinna: Michael, I’ve put on weight as I have found eating less since my nausea. I have improved my diet no end, eating fresh and clean no take-away or fast foods, hospitalized with Diverticulitis almost 12 months ago.
Tony: So that’s a lot of stuff, Michael. You know I see a lot of people talking about how they get nauseous when they’re hungry and their stomach is empty. Um, some people say that it could have to do with blood sugar going too low and I’m okay with them saying that. I’m not saying that’s it, but I’m okay with them saying that. If you have like a small intestinal bacteria overgrowth type of situation then that may flourish more as food is not continually going through they may activate more and the food may not be there. Let’s say if there’s a bunch of bacteria especially in your stomach. When food is in there you may be making enough acid to feel okay and to keep them at bay, but when there’s no acid in your stomach they can climb out of the mucus barrier and come party a little bit. Um, so you might want to look at especially if you have diverticulitis is what’s going on with bacteria in your intestinal tract it sounds like it could be a little bad situation there.
Kinna: Okay, I thought you had something to say there, Will. Um, okay, Andrea, from Corpus Christi, Texas. I have been on a clean organic diet for almost 30 days. I’m still craving GMOs when will it stop?
Will: Craving GMOs?
Kinna: That’s what it says.
Tony: I think that’s a misconception for Andrea.
Will: Yeah, I think she just wants like her Snickers or whatever. Those foods.
Tony: Yeah, I believe you’re having cravings, but I don’t think that you’re longing for bad farming.
Will: Right, I really wish this chocolate was genetically modified.
Tony: Right, right, but we do have a whole episode on cravings and binge eating that will help you understand why you’re having cravings. Because just because you’re eating an organic diet doesn’t mean that you’re getting all the nutrients that your body needs. You may not be breaking it down, you may be eating foods that are not right for your chemistry, you might be ripping through it too quickly, there is blood sugar issues, all kinds of stuff that you need to look at.
Will: It also takes a lot stronger digestion to break down whole foods.
Tony: Uh huh.
Will: Processed foods are just easier to get your blood pressure up and blood sugar up, so your body is used to not having to do any work to get nutrition out of it so your blood pressure and blood sugar will tend to be lower. Even though you’re eating foods that make you feel full. They’re just not getting that huge slam of carbs and processed sugars and things like that.
Tony: Right, so really listen to that episode cause we talk about just cravings like we don’t shut up about it for a whole hour.
Will: It’s nauseating really.
Kinna: It is.
Tony: Yeah and once you get nauseated from listening to that, then come back and listen to this one again and it’ll be a mess. We’re sorry.
Kinna: Chad, from Rochester, Indiana. You know what best cures nausea? Weed, just a fact. All right, Chad. I’m going to take that challenge.
Tony: Next week Kinna will explain if it helped or not.
Kinna: Exactly. Elaine, from Los Angeles, California. In the morning the thought of eating breakfast makes me want to gag. I’ve been this way my whole life. Is it a thing? Or is the morning just not when I want to eat?
Tony: There are good television shows on in the morning. Maybe you should just watch those instead? I think that would be better. But yeah, we talked about the morning nausea and it makes sense and if your body is not done dealing with crap it’s not going to want more.
Kinna: And if you have a baby in 9 months you might know something else was up.
Tony: Right, that could be something else.
Kinna: Stephanie. What causes someone to be nauseated when hungry? It just makes me not want to eat. I get nauseous if I’m too hungry, after I eat and when I’m stressed. Haha!
Tony: So that’s a lot of nauseous.
Will: So the only time she’s not nauseous is while she’s actually eating?
Tony: I don’t know. I guess she has to be chewing on something at that moment.
Tony: Um, which I guess that happens to people that guy earlier was talking about, that’s why Michael I guess that’s why he gained weight because the only time he wasn’t nauseous was while he was eating.
Kinna: Maybe she should just sleep all the time too.
Tony: Yeah, that’s another option.
Will: I mean, when we look at like the hunger and we also look at, you know, the menstrual cycle and the nausea that goes along with that you have a whole book about how those things are tied together. Like for example, your body is low on resources, you’re electrolyte deficient, your cycle is gonna hit you way harder.
Will: And make you feel way worse. All those symptoms of like crazy mood swings and the nausea that goes along with that, so if you tend to be someone who’s kind of low on resources, low blood pressure, electrolyte deficient and you’re missing meals or going a long time between eating that same kind of nausea can hit you like just that depleted frustration.
Tony: Right and I think people that look at they do a thing and then they get nauseous so they associate it with what ever just happened. I just had Skittles and now I’m nauseous, so Skittles are the worst thing and they just keep knocking those things out so until there’s only 4 things on the planet they can eat. The situation is not necessarily what you’re eating it could have to deal with how your body is dealing with what you’re eating, or it’s inability to deal with what you’re eating, or the waste that has come from other things that you have eaten.
Kinna: That’s interesting that you brought up Skittles cause when I’ve eaten a pound of Skittles at a time, I’ve gotten nauseous too.
Tony: Well, this show is sponsored by Skittles.
Kinna: Oh, okay. Tristan, from Pensicola, Florida. You all are pregnant!
Tony: She’s probably right.
Tony: I’m probably pregnant too.
Kinna: Uh huh. Me too. Um, Susan. I actually vomit every other day after feeling nauseous most of the time. Vomiting starts about 5 hours after I eat, so sometimes it wakes me through the night. Been for all known tests. It stopped briefly. I was drinking water infused with cucumber, mint, ginger and lemon, but it started again. Any advice would be most appreciated. Becky, no this is Becky now. Becky at Susan, my diseased gall bladder did not show up on all their tests either. I kept insisting I was not crazy. When they did the very expensive gall bladder study they found it functioning at only 12% and removed it a few weeks later. I’m a new woman. It takes up to a year to be brand new, but I do not have diarrhea and nausea at least after every other meal. Restaurants are on my radar again.
Tony: Okay, we have a lot to talk about.
Kinna: Yeah, I have a feeling the gall bladder thing is not going to be….
Tony: It’s not going to work out for Becky is it?
Kinna: Even though she feels like a new woman.
Tony: Right. So let’s look at a couple of things here. First of all with Susan, you know, she felt better a little bit when she was using things like cucumber, mint and ginger. And you do see a lot of people feeling better with ginger. Like I think that it just has the ability to make you feel better, but I don’t view it as a solution cause it’s not fixing the underlying problem. So I think if someone has a light nausea thing they might be able to knock it out with a little ginger.
Kinna: Yeah, I was saying, yeah yeah exactly.
Tony: But clearly it did not continue to work for Susan, which it doesn’t work for most people who are advanced like serious full time nausea pros. When you go into the doctors to be tested and you end up leaving like they just think I’m crazy, there’s nothing wrong with your blood and they’re looking at blood tests when they do this. They’re not looking at is your digestion working. They don’t even understand how digestion is supposed to work cause if they did they wouldn’t be handing out acid reflux drugs that turn digestion off to every other person on the planet. So, it’s okay if they don’t find anything wrong, I don’t think that they are going to, but when you’re feeling that way and you already have it scheduled in of when you’re going to start vomiting. Like you know its coming 5 hours later. There’s stuff going on. You’re not breaking down your food and you’re likely not removing waste. You know there’s stuff that you can look at. Look at those things that we talked about is your stool lighter in color? Look at your saliva pH. Do the stuff in the FREE course and figure out what’s going on with you because with that often of a daily schedule there’s stuff going on and it’s very likely stuff that you can fix.
Will: Yeah and that’s an interesting time table and it’s kind of different depending on what you ate, but in general, like when you eat a meal, it should clear the stomach in about 4 hours I’ve read. Everyone is slightly different. So is she’s at 5 hours and she throws stuff up, you don’t throw stuff out of your intestines, you throw up stuff out of your stomach. Like it doesn’t go past that.
Will: So it’s a stomach thing. If that food is sitting in there not being broken down and it won’t be excreted into the intestines until like it’s acid enough because that’s what triggers the valves to push it through.
Tony: To go out of it.
Will: Yeah, so if it never getting to that pH it’s just rotting in there with all this bacteria creating this big fermented mess and that would feel gross and then you’d be like yeah, well if it’s not going to go out that way let’s push it out the other way.
Tony: Push it out the other way.
Will: It’s been here too long. It’s not working. So you’d definitely want to look at what is your stomach acid level and go through the digestion course and see if you have all the symptoms of like zero HCL presence in your stomach. Like once you start adding HCL to it, it’s going to like change your world.
Tony: Right and I don’t want to give Becky bad news about the gall bladder it sounds like she’s dealt with enough and now she’s feeling good, but what goes on and why someone can feel so much better after they have their gall bladder removed is if that gall bladder is filled with stones, which it happens when someone’s bile is not flowing enough and that gall bladder is made to concentrate the bile so it’s more alkaline and it’s more concentrated so when it hits the acid it’s more effective. But if bile stops flowing well for many different reasons and then those stones form and it kind of plugs up that gall bladder now the person is going to feel lousy because the exit strategy for toxins is gone. They are going to feel lousy all the time. So now you hack off that gall bladder and you throw it in the garbage. Now for a lot of people, bile at least has the ability to flow so that there is an exit strategy for toxins. The problem is is that there is no gall bladder to store this bile, so when you eat food there’s not enough bile to meet with the acid and neutralize it and truly digest that food. So there is bile flow for toxins to be removed, but there’s not a place for it to store to make digestion work correctly. So that’s going to create problems down the line, but a lot of people feel better because at least the gall bladder attack is gone at least the toxins can be removed. The problem is and we hear from people all the time that read the books and come to the support group and email us that I had my gall bladder removed 5 years ago and I still get gall bladder attacks. How is that even possible? And what happens is that biliary pathway is so plugged up and from bile being too thick and not moving it still gets backed up and still creates that pain. So just because you had your gall bladder removed doesn’t mean that you fixed anything. You still have to get bile to flow correctly and Becky, a lot of times people that had their gall bladder removed don’t start experiencing loose stool and other issues for a few years. So just know that if that comes up you really need to look at the 4 week course and understand the steps that you can take to fix that without a gall bladder.
Kinna: All right. So if you wanna learn more about how to look at your own chemistry you can read any of Tony’s books or take the FREE 4 week digestion course at kickitinthenuts.com. You can also check out Will’s website, mybodyofknowledge.net, right?
Tony: And next week we’re going to talk about female hair loss and if you like the show go to iTunes and leave us a review. I really want you to do that.
Kinna: And if you don’t like the show well then….
Tony: Then don’t go to iTunes and leave us a review. I really don’t want you to do that.
Kinna: Exactly! My fragile self-esteem can’t handle anymore hate mail.
Kinna: All right, until next week when we’re talking about female hair loss, ladies.
Tony: Bye bye.
