Diet Changes ?( Seeds, Nuts, herbs and spices)

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello,

I was wondering If anyone else had to stop eating foods with seeds, nuts, herbs and spices due to inflaming their Anal Fissure?

After cleaning and then applying ointments I have noticed undigested seeds, pieces of nuts and grains. Herbs like parsley or even pieces of vegetables found clinging on close to my AF area. It's been more sensitive after Surgery. I try avoiding seeds and nuts but vegetables and herbs I really rather just limit. Maybe something is wrong with my digestion because one would think the acids would break it down to be exited as waste.

On a separate note: June 6th I have a gastroenterology appointment. I'm going to ask about endoscopy but see what my dr thinks and suggests. I been having a lot of discomfort plus I almost blacked out just going up the steps to have chicken soup. Cancer being on both sides of my family gives more cause for concern. I'll be trusting in my Lord no Matter. God Bless All.

    Hi there friend, nothing is wrong with your digestion. since seeds and nuts is insoluble it cannot be digested or atleast it remains in 90% of its original form.

    I am going to try and stop eating nuts and see what happens, but Chia Seeds have been doing wonders for me. I soak it in a cup over night and next morning put about 4 table spoon of Lasco Soy Milk Beverage powder into it stir and drink mmm so delicious. I swallow most and chew some, don't blend it I find it becomes way too sharp when blended.

    I also notice vegetables and anything with high fiber can also be dangerous if you eat too much you need to keep it minimum, the trick appears to eat a very little bit of food but high in nutrients. This eliminates pain the most if you ask me but it don't always work out so well unfortunately.

      I don't remember ever trying chia seeds, I will look it up. Being half Cuban pumpkin with string beans and boiled eggs drizzled in extra virgin olive oil is one of my go to. I remember my Grandmother making that often for her gut issues. I love beans and rice but those beans! What out! can be too explosive lol Have you tried brown rice or other types of grains? I'm looking for recipes too. I been eating Chicken and fish for protein. Let me know. I love curry dishes too but Sometimes too spicy for my digestion.

      Hi yes I can tell you the chia seeds work great after its been soaked for a few hours, it has to be soaked. Give it a try you will see how nice and soft the gel is that it releases, really helps your digestive system along with the table spoon of virgin coconut oil. I found the coconut oil works better than a table spoon of olive oil. I have eaten parboiled rice which is brown rice in a sense, not sure if there is much difference between both. The rice is great but again it can cause an issue as its so high in fiber that I must keep it at a bare minimum because the golden rule the less goes in the less comes out. My mother made me some roasted egg plants and a slice of curried salmon, since I am Indian its not an issue for me not even with a fissure I am very accustomed to it. But I stay away from pepper at all cost. I stay away from chicken for now as I am not sure how well it can be digested I am going back to what has worked for me which was tiny tiny amounts of food nearly starving and mainly just chia seeds with oats and some frozen strawberry amazingly this cured me for 4 days until I stupidly ate a big slice of water melon and it was down hill from there.

      Yeah am going back to what had worked for me in the past, chia seed and oats only eating so little bit that I only had a bowel movement once every 2 days which didn't hurt and allowed me to heal and only tiny amounts came out doing as minimum damage to my fissure. I will let you know how it works out for me

    I have come to the conclusion that once you eat something that will atleast dilute the roughness of the Nuts you can eat as much nuts as you want and its actually good for your fissure. The big issue is if you eat nuts alone all day, it will tear up your fissure.

    This insoluable fiber is actually very good for fissures, the problem is you also need soluable, too much of each is bad. You need a balance of both
