UPDATE: I Have been doing this for about a month now. I know it is helping with the bowel movements and my digestion is doing better, although I am not sure if it is the Olive oil and lemon juice or the digestive enzymes I am taking making the digestion better. I know when I forget to use it, my BM's are not as easy.
With the candida supposedly out of my system, I have been left with a lot of food allergies that cause me to have acid in my stomach. I guess I might have what they call leaky gut. I will be posting more about leaky gut later but right now I am working on how to make my food digest better.
I decided to try Olive Oil and Lemon..... sometimes you get to a point where you will try anything.
I know it sounds strange, but this is working. I always thought oil made me sick but.....THIS WORKS. I have also noticed my BM's are not as hard.

The bulk of Olive Oil is monosaturated fat in the form of oleic acid. Monosaturated fat is the easiest for the body to absorb, especially when you campare it to other saturated and polyunsaturated fats.
Olive oil slows down the passing of food from the stomach to the intestine. This in turn requires less gastric fluid thereby reducing indigestion and heartburn. With the slow and easy flow of food through the intestine the body is better able to absorb what it needs. The use of olive oil often leads to the ability to satisfy hunger with less food since it is easier digested in the stomach and the body gets longer to absorb through the intestine.
Those with ulcers have experienced less pain when their food is prepared with olive oil. In addition, olive oil can help with constipation. If your colon does not work properly, it can throw your whole digestive tract off.
To Aid in digestion, take 2 teaspoons of Olive Oil mixed with 2 teaspoons lemon juice before every meal.
This also works GREAT as a salad dressing.
Also.... get your self on a really good probiotic.
