Cat diarrhea and vomiting but acting normal. What could cause this and should I be worried? I have been on a diet of mostly whole foods, including no dairy. I have lost weight. I only drink water. I have been taking some B vitamins and a multivitamin. I would have thought this was caused by the diet. However, this past week I could only eat whole-wheat pasta and my stomach was still not digesting it well so I could not eat it and it was hurting a lot. Should I be worried?
It sounds like your gut is not really well. If you have been following a strict (no dairy, high fat, refined sugars, etc.) diet, then I would not be surprised that you are having some digestive trouble. It could be that you have been overdoing it with the diet and therefore overdoing it with digestive problems. I know that is difficult to hear, but it can be very easy to go too far with diet.
To be safe, I would recommend the following:
Eat whole foods, including vegetables, fruits, meats, fish, nuts and seeds, and grains.
Eat in moderation. If you want to lose weight, eat moderately, but not too much or too little.
Eat foods that are not refined or processed in any way.
You could be overdoing it a bit and the way to tell is by the way your body is reacting to foods. I know it can be difficult to pay attention to what your body is trying to tell you, but you will eventually be able to sense what you need to do to feel good.
So my first question would be: how are you feeling? I know it is hard to talk about but can you think back to how you were feeling last week before the "trouble" with eating and/or digestion? Were you feeling good? If not, how were you feeling? Not good?
I know everyone feels differently when it comes to diet. I know that some people thrive on a different diet than others. I know that if you have tried all different types of diets, none of them work for you, you are doing something wrong, and that's okay.
I know that many people believe that they don't need to eat a "healthy" diet because "they work out a lot" or "they are thin." I am here to tell you that I have seen thin people and obese people who work out and have no symptoms of being a "thin" or "obese" person. I have also seen people who are thin and working out who are experiencing digestive issues. So, what does this have to do with you? You may not have a gut issue, you may not have stomach issues, and you may not have issues with food digestion or allergies to food. But, your body is out of balance, so your body is trying to figure out what it needs to do to get itself back to the healthiest state. This is known as the "Yoga of the stomach."
I am not going to promise that the rest of this week is going to be easy. I am also not going to promise that you will feel great by the end of this week. If you think that you want to keep reading, I hope you are okay with that.
I am not a doctor, and I can't promise you that you will feel great or be healed. If you are not healing and you are feeling really low, I would recommend that you stop this course. But, I do want to give you the tools to get started and give you the energy and the motivation to keep going.
What is yoga for the stomach? Well, here are a few ways to think about it. When you are doing asanas (body poses) in yoga you are not focusing on what your body looks like. If you don't like the pose and you can't do it, just breathe and let go of the pose. You are looking at it from the perspective of your soul. That is why yoga is called "yoga of the soul." The idea is not to look at your body. Your body is a reflection of your current emotional state. You may be looking like a hot yoga in the room, but you may be a hot yoga to your own soul.
So, how does it work? If you are sitting down and getting angry at your husband or your partner or your kid or your boss, that emotional state is going to create an imbalance in your body, and your body is trying to figure out how to deal with it. If you are feeling sad and anxious and feeling low, your body will try to cope with those emotions in your physical body. I am not saying that you are doomed to have a messed up physical body for the rest of your life because you are feeling sad. If that is the case, then your body's job is over.
But your body can heal! So you can work on healing your emotional state and your body will start to heal. When you are in yoga, your attention is not on the body. Your attention is on the breath. That is why doing yoga is for the soul. When you are doing a posture, your attention is focused on the pose. If you can pay attention to the pose and not your thoughts, your emotions and your worries, you can feel the poses working your body in new and creative ways. It is the same idea as if you want to put a new roof on your car. Your car is an old car and you want to put a new roof on it. The new roof is a physical thing, but your focus is on the car.
When you are moving through a pose and you are getting closer and closer to the floor, you are feeling the floor and you are noticing how your body is touching the floor. You feel your feet against the floor. You feel your back against the floor and your shoulders and your hands and your head. You start to feel the sensation of the floor. You can actually feel that the floor is a different texture from your shoes, than the floor of your house, than the floor of your car, than the floor of your car, than the floor of your office. Each step of the way, the floor is a different texture.
When you work with your body, you are paying attention to the floor. When you are touching the floor in that posture, you are creating a memory. You are creating a memory about what that type of body feels like in the floor. If your car does not have the ability to create a memory, then you will never know that different feel of the floor as you touch the floor when you stand.
If you have good memory skills, you can imagine that you had an open-ended experience where you were standing on the floor. So, it is not just about touching the floor, it is about having an image of a memory. You can use your brain's ability to create a picture in your mind, when you really get into an area of your practice.
When you practice on the floor, it's okay. This is not so much about the feeling of the floor, it is more about the experience. It's not about touching the floor, it's about feeling the floor in the mind, in the imagination. That is something that you can do, and over time, it gets easier and easier to think about what that might look like in your mind.
If you have an injury or a condition, you can imagine that you have an open-ended experience with it, you can feel that body, and you can think about what that feeling is, what it feels like, what it looks like, and what it sounds like. If you can think about that, then you will remember what
