Hi All, I have extreme gastric problems.
What should i do to avoid having the problems?

I think the best suggestion is to monitor how much fiber you are eating and figure out if you have any trigger foods. I have certain foods that I avoid (popcorn!) because I know it’s not worth the trouble.

I find that when I avoid caffiene my stomach problems go away.

I used to as well! Just cut out cereal. That’s all I had to do. It helped. Good luck :)

I suffered from stomach aches for years before seeing a naturopathic doctor. I’d get my aches on “normal food days” so I never thought it was what I was eating…
anyhow, turned out I was allergic to eggs, dairy and soy, and also a bit gluten intolerant. I’d try eliminating one food at a time for a few weeks and see how you feel.
Questions for you: Gastric problems, ie, gassy, or aches or nausea?
Anyhow it can be difficult eliminating things because processed foods have so many things in them, esp. dairy and soy. Lots of people have problems w/dairy and soy and it’s basically in everything.

Need more specifics (not too specific though) like Sara1973 said.
If it is serious – go to the doctor. It could be anything: lactose intolerance, too much fat (lubricant) in your diet, food allergies, ninja assassins trying to poison you, etc… could be nothing… could be serious.
If you don’t think it’s THAT serious, try finding a pattern. Same time of day? After certain foods? Times per day varies or is constant? Position you’re in when it happens? Something!
I had really bad problems until I saw the doctor and found out I have IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). After that, it became a matter of learning my triggering foods and controlling them… but it never really goes away… but frequency is reduced. Also, medications work well for mine… but not for everyone. IBS is mostly random – sometimes it happens, sometimes it don’t.
