Eating Oat Bran Raw
Passed watery stools after eating oat bran cereal and pears. I've got a bloated stomach and feeling nausea there's alot of gas in it. What is going on?
Cracklin oat bran: IF Cracklin Oat Bran is the name of a boxed cereal it likely contains lots of chemicals such as additives, preservatives, sugar, etc. Thus, it is not good for you. Far better to consume bran flakes. You can put some cinnamon on them for flavor, which is also good for balancing blood sugar. Peace and good health.
Sure: Whatever seems right. Unless you really overdo it and get an impaction, you should be fine.
It will some, but...: Eating oat bran is better for you and may have a more pronounced effect. Good luck!See 1 more doctor answer

Not necessary: Your body is like a four wheel car. If you have 3 wheels, it's great to add one. If you have all 4 wheels, adding more wheels serves no purpose. The same is true with essential nutrients like vitamins, minerals, fatty and amino acids. Once your body has enough, adding more serves no purpose other than to enrich the people who sold it to you.
Hello I got a babygirl on monday and she has jaundice (level 18). Also my wife has not enough milk to breastfeed, so I bought oat bran. Is this good?
Yes, also try...: As my colleagues advise, light therapy is advisable for your baby- it's safe ; effective. It's not unusual for there to be not a lot of breastmilk just 2 days after birth- it can take time to kick in. Oatmeal/oatbran often helps, but there are many other herbs/foods that can help- see see http://bit. Ly/1gzvp0e ; http://bit.

I've been eating bran flakes 4breakfast x3 weeks. It's been working great for regularity, but belly almost feels raw &inflamed x 1 week, (not gas).?
Too much?: You might be getting a little too much bran for your system, depending on what kind you are eating. I would probably stop eating it for a few days until your symptoms resolve completely. If they don't, or if you are having additional symptoms (ex: bad pain, diarrhea, bleeding), see your doctor.
