Even on a mostly raw, organic, vegan diet I am still struggling with stomach/digestive issues. I’ve recently added digestive enzymes to my daily routine, probiotics and a colon detoxifying supplement. I have tried to pinpoint what is causing the issue to no avail as one day I can eat tomatoes, the next day they make me “react”.
I am also having other issues that I had considered to be thyroid related or possibly hormonal.
My instincts have been telling me it is gluten. I also seem to be constantly stumbling upon more and more research indicating my issues may be gluten related, and several friends have also suggested it. Today I stumbled upon this:
Seems all of my symptoms are on this list. It is not going to be easy but I think it is the natural, next step in my healing process to eliminate gluten from my diet.
Also per Genki Kitty’s post—she shares some yoga for irritable stomachs. I started yoga classes again, and have found them truly essential in my awareness of and healing my own body.

Sometimes it happens even to the best of vegans, an irritable stomach. For some unknown reason, I have a very irritable stomach that has been giving me severe cramps and ‘bathroom issues’. I’ve read that a person should wait at least 3-7 days for irritable stomachs to visit the doctor, so that’s what I’m doing. Two days in I’m still feeling rather sick but doing much better. Seeing I must be close to a bathroom at all times, it has meant I haven’t been able to go for our training plan runs which has been getting at me greatly. Running is my method of choice for exercise that helps reduce stress so missing a few days isn’t good for my mind and body. Hence, I decided to look for a few workouts that might relieve a little in the stomach area and thought some of you might be having the same issue.
