Resistant Starch Caused Me To Crash
I have be more or less bullet proof for almost 2 years. I have had continuing gut sensitivity, but way better than before I changed my diet. I had the Genova test for parasites and it came back clean including SIBO. The only flags were inflamation and poor fat absorption, which is probably the consequence of a high fat diet.and not poor fat absorption. So reading all of the up sites to resistance starch I tried potato starch. I could only go for about 4 days before the gas induced lack of sleep forced me to stop. I would take few days off, just enough to recover and try it again, I only got up to 1tsp per day. I even took it in the morning so the gas would mitigate somewhat so I could get a little sleep. At the very end I even tried cold potatoes which were no better. After about a month my zeo was showing no deep sleep and very little rem with a wakeup every half hour or so and my Heart Math numbers crashed to the point I couldn't get out of the red. I took Jon's peppermint cure since sensitivity to starch is often a symptom of SIBO. It has been a month since my resistant starch episode and I am partly recovered.
The symptoms I had with the resistance starch were very much like the way I used to be all the time. Bloating, gas, constipation and bad sleep. I realized that legumes (beans but not peanuts) have always affected me this way. Am I genetically programmed to be sensitive to these foods. or is it just long term gut damage from years of bad diet. There is a history of gut problems my family
I took Garden of Life probiotics for about a year, which I have stopped.
