Following texts are copied from education series that I ran on some of websites to help understand the natural cure method mechanism and issues with widely used line of treatments using PPI/pro kinetic/constipation drug on ACIDOSIS/ACID REFLUX / GASTRO PARESIS / Leaky Gut

=================================================================

The Story of PPI, Gastro Gastroenterologist and GP /Acid Reflux/Acidosis Patients

The PPI have been proven to cause and start hosts of issues has been proved by examples live and logical. When PPI started to Jam /stop the stomach causing Slow Stomach and Gastro Paresis, pharmaceuticals came out with another miracle (Sic!) drug known as Pro Kinetics which would try to correct the errors or hara-kiri committed by PPI, i.e. they would help motility which has been slowed by PPI. And as Stomach emptying and motility slows down, Colon also slowed down. So now they ("gastroenterologist") came out with a GENERIC PROGRAM which Included PPI/Pro Kinetics and host of constipation drugs to deal with Acid reflux/colon issues. And When after Long use Of PPI/Pro Kinetics/constipation drugs started to further slow down stomach and Colon they came out with G/J Tube, Feeding tubes, Gastric pacemakers. When pushed further they removed your gall Bladders, Cut your stomachs & Colons into half. When they ("gastroenterologists") did not knew how to satisfy your queries they came out with further excuses like celiac disease, Gluten Intolerance, Vagus nerve damage etc. But did all of above measures have solved your problems? You still continue to suffer with nausea, nutrition deficiencies etc. Your PPI doses have increased to highest levels and you are struggling to make that one bowel movement which should be just a simple task otherwise.

But where did the problem start?? I have time again proved with documented research, with logical and theoretical example and also live cases like you and me, and said umpteen numbers of times that PPI are the one causing you not to get cured. But being citizen of first world , and just  because you guys have INSURANCE available, you continue to  ignore that THEY (gastroenterologist's) IN FACT have already declared the Gastro Paresis as  IDIOPATHIC i.e. cause not known and the disease is progressive, although this is only TRUE in allopathic form of line of treatment and NOT when  you go natural. It is your Insurance that is proving to be BANE instead of BOON. What if you did not have Insurance? Without medical insurance medical fraternity would just leave your colon and stomach as it is and would not suggest you any such options as they know that they cannot make any money out of you, and Also without insurance you would save yourself from endless tests that you subjects yourself to just because you have that INSURANCE with you and you want to just make use of it. Also without insurance, you would then start to look for home remedies which are not happening at present. In my posts I have said that women are the one most suffering as they have frequent interactions with doctors and somewhere they are prescribed PPI and the story begins to roll further.. As MEN we most of time try to ignore going to doctors and would visit only when there is a serious injury or there are some problems because of age.

Already the medical fraternities have confused you by introducing to you hosts of reasons that could have caused the GP/Acid reflux (In fact they do not have any clue guys! Understand this and you will be saved), but what amazes me is that as patients instead of blaming the drugs and doctors, you come out with this “OH, WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT AND THAT IS WHY SOME DRUGS work for SOME and some do not and that is why our so called Gastroenterologist's are finding it difficult to manage this issue for us ". Do not several forms of tooth pastes work for all of us?! Come on guys, is this a STOCKHOLM SYNDROME I am seeing where the VICTIM continues to protect the TORMENTOR in the hope that by doing so the TORMENTOR would be less cruel to them.

Nowadays, I am seeing patients as young as 20 years coming to your forum with the same issues you are facing, and the only reasons they will not get cured or see their life get ruined is that because you guys continue to take time to understand the cure mechanism that I have listed. All of you are just continuing to re invent the wheel when all facts have been explained and it is clearly known that PPI/PRO KInetics/Constipation Line of treatment has never got anyone cured in the HISTORY of this line of treatment. So why not caution all new comers and let them go onto other path where there is a hope.

Look; once you have been Identified as Acid reflux /Gastro Paresis/ Acidosis with symptoms like Burning pain in abdomen after every meal, heart burns after meals , nausea, dizziness  after every meal & Severe weight loss, I would say just hope on to this mechanism in post below and save yourself from endless tests and Get ON with life after 8-12 weeks. It is now time for action and do not waste your time debating. Someone has already figured out the cure mechanism for you and you just need to go ahead and try it.

Here are my posts that I already started. Just get on to this post and start the process of getting cured.

GASTRO PARESIS and subsequent acid buildup will manifest following conditions :-->>

Constipation (1), sensitive stomach (2) (where intake of spicy food especially liquid curries, tea coffee causes further anxiety), (3)Functional dyspepsia (feeling of fullness even with small meals). (4) Also you cannot eat heavy meals at this stage akin to anemia. (5) Depletion of alkaline reserves causes further indigestion and result in delayed digestion & Acidosis. (6)  Acid buildup causes thinning of stomach lining/ mucosa which is symptom of leaky gut and causes undigested food and acid released for digestion to go directly into blood thus causing contamination of blood and subsequent acidosis.



Delayed emptying of stomach causes acid buildup resulting in nausea, dizziness, pain in abdomen, severe weight loss and indigestion. Also it causes Acid reflux in some people  if the valve at end of esophagus (neck) does not close properly.

THERE are 3 line of treatment that I came across and I will discuss all of these:-

The one and most practiced which is also a faulty line of treatment is generic program that included PPI class of drugs (e.g. NEXIUM, ranitidine, famotidine, omeprazole, RAZO etc)/Motility class of drugs (e.g. REGLAN, Domperidone, Erythromycin) along with antacids to manage the issue. Please know that PPI class of drugs is used for SUPPRESSING ACID While PRO KINETIC Drugs are used to push the digested food through stomach (Motility) for EVERY MEAL you take. So long, that you continue to suppress acids using PPI, delayed emptying will continue to persist. Read DISCUSSION section of article here: “   http://gut.bmj.com/content/42/2/243.full   “

Extract from From above url/link:

Discussion
this study has shown that therapeutic doses of ranitidine, famotidine, and omeprazole, which suppress gastric acid secretion, affect both gastric motility and gastric emptying. All significantly delayed gastric emptying despite an increase in postprandial antral contractility as assessed using antral manometry, electrogastrography, and dynamic antral scintigraphy.

from above extract, When it is clearly established that PPI class of drugs cause and enhance further delayed emptying (Dysmotility) then why are these prescribed??

This line of treatment does not cure the problem but you just manage it on every day basis just like diabetes. As per Medical fraternity GASTRO PARESIS is non curable so they come out with line of treatment that eventually takes you to either G  Tube or Feeding tube or some type of surgeries as in long run because of side effects of PPI/Kinetic drugs the stomach slows down to such an extent that nothing can help it move further.

Being former gastro paresis and cured patient I know, that mechanism used by medical fraternity is faulty. I myself from 86 KG went on to become skinny and skeletal losing around 18 kgs because of gastro paresis and subsequent acid buildup causing acidosis; am now cured and back to being healthy and strong again just because I chose to follow different path which I will discuss later.

Thanks for reading

** By the way I am NOT a doctor but a former patient of gastro paresis who is just sharing his cure or possible better management of this

** Complex issue without any medicines but using only HERBS/ Right Food/ Supplements.

How did we become Acidity prone / delayed stomach emptying people?à

It looks like one of the thing came across common was that we have skipped the meals a lot.
When Living in San Francisco I used to have Buffett during lunch and would eat a lot and then skip night meals thinking that since I ate so much during lunch I did not need to eat at nights. When finding the PG accommodation I visited one house and informed Chinese lady how I was eating as I wanted to tell her that her kitchen has not much use to me.  She was surprised that I was skipping meal and cautioned me that it might cause ulcer if i did it for long. I laughed it away and look what happened. My stomach lining is now compromised (thinned, leaky gut) and is causing flare-ups when I eat food that required lots of acids to be released. There in fact is nothing wrong with my digestion but this weak lining is causing all the flare ups and subsequent slow moving digestion.
When you have a thin stomach lining or a leaky gut, the acid released for digestion may go directly in blood along with undigested food and that contaminates the blood and subsequently slows down the digestion.
Second reason for delayed emptying as per my understanding is when you diet consists of mostly acidic food and less or no alkaline foods.  When you eat a meal that is overly acidic, your body must neutralize the acid and regulate the alkalinity of the blood. Alkaline reserves (calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, zinc) are required to balance the ph level of your body fluid and blood. So when these reserves are depleted and you are eating acidic food, the food can not neutralized at speed that is required and so causes delay in digestion. It then starts to borrow alkaline reserves from your muscles and bones and hence the weight loss in some people.
Therefore one of thing we will do to recover fast is to Increase our alkaline reserves. Alkaline reserves are found plenty in seeds & unrefined salts like Black salts & Rock Salts, Celtic salts.
Just have a look at alkaline reserves (MINERALS) in these links:

What Food Cause Delay in emptying and How to avoid Acid Holdup/Buildup in stomach
================================================================
Just as an earth’s OZONE layer protects us from Strong Sun Rays, Our stomach lining / Mucosa protects us from acid released for digestion. Now just imagine that the OZONE layer is fading away. What would you do in that case? There are two options, one is to completely avoid going out in Sun Light and go out in nights only OR otherwise try to go only in early morning when Sun Light is just minimal and not that strong. Once you have understood that what food cause delay in digestion what food because acid release you will be able to control flare ups caused my meals. The Journey from Lightly prepared food to strong food is slow but is going to ensure final cure in most cases as in mine.

Protein requires a highly acidic environment for digestion, while carbohydrates and fats require a more alkaline environment. The Acids are released for Protein Digestion (Meat) and Also when there is Undigested food remaining in stomach. Similarly White flour food (bread, flat bread etc), baked food ((Biscuits, cake, pastries etc)) , Fried food, processed food (chips, chocolates, Ice cream etc), fatty foods ARE the foods that take long to digest and thus delay digestion.

So now if you had a meat in grilled/ boiled / steamed form, there is not much issue as proteins are the most easily digestible than carbohydrates & fats. But If you consume meat that is now FRIED, it takes long time to digest it as fried food take long to digest and also there is a hold up of this type of food in stomach. The problem here is that it also holds up acid that was released to digest the meat (protein) and thus the prolonged acid buildup starts to affect the stomach if we have thin stomach/mucosa lining. These result in acids going into blood thus contaminating it. Same happens when we combine meat with white flour products as the white flour takes long time to digest. That is why you must never combine meat/strong protein like Red meat with white flour food, and also since acids are released to digest meat it is always better to have meat in boiled/grilled/steamed form to avoid acidosis and thus subsequent gastro paresis or delayed emptying of stomach and related symptoms. It is okay to have meat with rice foods instead. That is why we must have White flour, baked, fried foods only occasionally and with at least a day’s gap. Also since we are trying to increase alkaline reserves we must follow 80% alkaline & 20% Acidic food habits for the long time to come. Conversely depletion of alkaline reserves (calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, zinc) causes digestive acids not to be neutralized properly thus hurting the intestinal lining and increased/prolonged acid buildup increases the PH causing delayed emptying of stomach. Once delayed emptying has started it goes in loop and thus makes it difficult to recover unless you have understood the mechanism to deal with it as mentioned in this blog.

Let us see if I am able to explain why you are stuck and where you are stuck. And WHY GP cannot be cured, is a FALSE statement.

Yes it cannot be cured in Allopathic method of cure probably but if you cannot reach your home by taking route XYZ then you must look for some other route to reach home. You never say to yourself that reaching your home is not possible just become someone told you so.

Following example (ACDOSIS CASE) tells you how and when GP was created and also why and where you are stuck. Also let us ignore some small error in explanation but you must see the larger picture of how you can come out of your situation. An ostrich like attitude where you refuse to see the reality will not help anyone, and you will be stuck getting INSPIRATION on drugs that you do not need and drugs that do not cure.

We travel from Step 1 to Step 9 in this example below:-->> You shall read it as; Step1 causes step2 and step2 causes step3 and so on...
(REASON X causes Acidosis; Acidosis causes Blood PH lowering......)
1. REASON-X OR one example: Leaky Gut/Thinning of mucosa or intestinal lining (Caused by: uncontrolled use of NSAID painkiller drugs, Frequent skipping meals, Eating Acid forming food lifestyle, surgeries etc.)
2. Acidosis (Undigested food & acid go into blood causing blood contamination)
3. Blood PH goes down. (Acidic blood state, causes depletion of alkaline reserves as blood must be restored to proper pH levels, borrows alkaline reserves from Bones/Muscles etc causing weight loss)
=>>4. Start of Gastro paresis or Delayed emptying of stomach (GP itself Manifests more issues like:-Sensitive stomach, Constipation, acid buildup , acid reflux in some people, cannot eat strong/heavy food ,depletion of alkaline reserves, Having acid forming meal cause more stomach anxieties and flare-ups)
5.Doctors now prescribe PPI (PPI drugs suppress acid but as a side effect cause further Delayed emptying or Gastro Paresis as per research already provided in my previous posts, and also thousands of live people like you stuck and not getting any results prove this)
6. One Expects to be cured since you are on prescriptions but that never happens. What is the point in having prescription drugs if they are not going to cure you!
7. Loop Back to Step 4 as now Instead of curing GP, PPI's are now causing further delayed emptying (more GP!!) i.e. step 4.
8. So now you travel from step 4 to 5 and back to step 2 and you never ever come out. This is a LOOP.
9. If Cure is STEP 6 you never reach it as use of PPI drugs cause you to go backward to step 4.
10. To exit or break the LOOP you must first remove step 5. Similarly Pro-kinetic drugs have their own side effects. They work for some time for some people and for others they do not work at all. Hence the need to avoid this class of drug too. We do not want any drugs that interfere with logical functioning of stomach.

So now as per my experience (and I have done it guys) if you can take care of step 2 & Step 3 GASTRO PARESIS would be resolved, RIGHT? It is the Root cause in Step 1 that will take some more time to resolve or even if did not, and then also by taking care of Step2 & Step 3 Gastro Paresis can be avoided. So now who says GP cannot be CURED ??!!!

So now your new step 5 onwards can be as follows (as Per my research, and guys it is all tested on me)
=====================================================================
1) Studies have found that L-glut amine supports the regeneration and repair of cells lining the intestinal wall. I have used L glut amine for Intestinal repairs (leaky Gut). I have myself used 2 products, Pure L Glutamine powder and British Nutrition’s Glutamine recovery formula. Trust me guys it has made a major difference. I got 3 benefits in just one month. Found that I my neck crackling sound was gone (arthritis of neck), Found that frequent bouts of cold was gone and off course the GUT has become more powerful and I have become more stronger.
2) Stop further acidosis (step 2) by having more of alkaline forming food and lightly/quickly prepared food and ignoring acid forming food during recovery period.
3) Restoring alkalinity of Blood by following blood purification (e.g. Wheat-grass powder and also drinking Black raisin soaked water)
4) Control acid indigestion (Lower PH of chyme or digested food, causes delayed emptying as food must be neutralized before passed to next stage of stomach) by using one or combination of ORGANIC Sea Salts, Rock salt, black Salt, Celtic salt and Himalayan pink salts which ever you can get hold of. These ORGANIC SALTS are capable of absorbing heat and very necessary as every meal causes digestive fires to go up. I normally would sprinkle these salts with every meal. Trust me Acid Indigestion will feel like a myth if you did this with every meal.
5) The one MOST IMPORTANT HERB we use is TRIPHALA capsules. This herb has many benefits and recovery without this one herb may not be possible. This herb will help cleanse Intestines, Blood purification, Motility etc. This herb will also help cure sensitive stomach which is result of acute acid buildup causing stomach to become soggy and sensitive.
6) CONSTIPATION is one major issue which can be resolved by having mucilage food like Grounded Flax seeds, Fenugreek seeds, Chia seeds and Clarified butter (Ghee) On every day basis.
7) Also there is a method to stop PPI class of drugs which is mentioned in my blog. You must neutralize acids as sudden stop of PPI will cause acid rebound effect for 3-4 days but as long as you know how to neutralize acids using antacids or other methods you will be fine and on way to recovery in few days. Some people who tried stopping PPI without knowing the method got panicked as acid rebound effect of sudden stop of these drugs will cause more anxieties if you did not take care of neutralizing acids on more frequent basis. Just read the section on how to stop PPI in my blog and you will know.
8) All that is needed is to follow journey from lightly cooked (Quickly prepared) diet to Strong diet gradually, ignoring acid forming food like White Flour, Red meat, all type of Process food etc. The mechanism of Blood Cleanse/Intestinal cleanse along with building alkaline reserves , Blood purification and L Glutamine based intestinal repairs shall help manage problem for good.

A Note on LOW Stomach Acid queries, Apple Cider Vinegar V/S Organic Salts, PPI's
==============================================================
1) LOW Stomach Acid queries:-
I have come across many people raising queries on whether it is low acid that is causing the issue. As far as my knowledge goes this is not true. Acidosis or Acid Indigestion leading to Acid Reflux is caused by Acid buildup. The fact that we are using acid suppression (PPI) and acid neutralization (antacids) means that we have more than required acids present. In fact all our problems have started because of Acidosis or Acid Indigestion which is because of LOW PH of body fluids and blood.
Look; Acids are released only for protein digestion and more stronger the protein (meat) More acids are released. But if you are having a Vegetarian meal, not much acids are required as protein content is very less in this case; so where is question for low acid here? If you supplied HCL supplements while having alkaline or vegetarian food it would actually cause acid indigestion as no acids are required first of all to digest this type of meal. What is required in fact is a steady supply of Alkaline reserves to bring back PH to normal level for every meal and hence I use Organic salts with every meal which not only supply much needed alkaline reserves but also help bring pH to normal.

2)  PPI (Proton Pump Inhibitor class of druds used for Acid Suppression) :-
The reason these acid blockers (PPI's) have caused havoc is because they are designed poorly and are thus causing more delayed stomach emptying (GP) when taken for long time. So now, If you had GP for Reason X, and once you have started on PPI drugs to suppress acid, your GP is now caused by Reason X + PPI's (as their side effect caused more GP). That is why we must first make all efforts to put a stop to this class of drug as now even if you have resolved your Reason X which cause GP originally; you can still never come out of GP as there is now EXPLICIT or DELIBERATE GP caused by PPI class of drugs, and your GP will persist so long you continue to take them. Remember that Acid Neutralizing is always preferable than acid suppression as we do not want to interfere with logical functioning of stomach which is what these PPI class of drugs do. I have said in so many voices in last several months that you can never ever recover until and unless you get rid of this class (PPI) of drugs.
But you must take care of acid rebound effect when stopping these and also understand what type of food must be ate when you are off acid blockers. See if you ate food that does not require ACID RELEASE; then automatically you are making acid blocker redundant. If you have learnt food behaviors you would be able to understand what to eat and how to eat and eventually your stomach would restore back. You must read my blog on WordPress to understand mechanism first.

3) Apple cider Vinegar (ACV) V/S Organic Salts:
Those with Acid Reflux  have benefited by taking ACV (Apple cider Vinegar) just before meals. Apple cider vinegar although very acidic; is ALKALINE forming food there by helps regulate PH of Digested food. The Digested food must be neutralized before it can be passed on to next stage in stomach for digestion. If the PH of digested food is low it just sits there along with acid released for digestion and hence causes acid reflux in some people.
But ACV is very strong, and unless diluted properly cannot be used if you have a Sensitive stomach, and so in that case better alternative to use is ORGANIC SALTS like Black salt/Himalayan Pink Salt/Celtic Salt/Sea salt (Impure Crystals). I normally combine all of these salts and sprinkle these on all my meals after they are served. These salts are capable of absorbing heat and also help regulate PH of digested food. So, it is safe to say that instead of ACV these ORGANIC SALTS can be used instead to avoid acid indigestion.

Let Thy Food Be Thy Cure! This is the IDIOM we use to manage or cure GP and all its manifested issues. The mechanism of Blood Cleanse/Intestinal cleanse along with building alkaline reserves through Organic salts and seeds , Blood purification and L Glutamine based intestinal repairs shall help manage problem for good.

** A NOTE on How to Stop PPI/H2 Blockers **
==========================================
1)
Getting off Pro Kinetic/Constipation drugs, Acid Blockers & Proton Pump Inhibitors (Nexium, ranitidine, famotidine, omeprazole, Razo etc) is very important first steps in managing this issue. Being on H2 Blockers/PPI class of drugs for long time and then stopping suddenly will have acid rebound effect for first 3-4 days. You must follow soft/grilled/steamed/Roasted ALKALINE only diet when stopping PPI for first one week.  We do not want to use any drugs that interfere with logical functioning of stomach and so getting off PPI/Pro Kinetic class of drugs is very important first steps towards dealing with this complex issue.
2)
Easiest way to do switchover without getting affected by acid bound and other withdrawal effect of PPI's would be to use TRIPHALA capsule after every meal along with Organic Salts like Black Salt/Himalayan pink salt with every meal. TRIPHALA HERB is an excellent intestinal cleanse and motility herb and is very important part of managing the GP and subsequent issues.
3)
I have also used  Cold milk(No Sugar), Baking soda dissolved in water (Not Baking Powder) to sooth  stomach when I felt it turning acidic because of acid rebound effect of stopping PPI for first 3-4 days. Acid neutralizing is always preferred than acid suppression. PPI's also feed delayed emptying making sure that gastro paresis never goes away. No doubt that they (Doctors) call Gastro Paresis as progressive as the very drug they prescribe (PPI class of drugs), make sure that delayed emptying never really gets cured.  While struggling on my GP issues I understood it soon that these drugs (PPI/Motility) were actually making the problem worst, but I found this research only recently because I needed to convince others why one should be wary about using them. Read Discussion Section here: http://gut.bmj.com/content/42/2/243.full

if one can survive on soft /grilled/steamed/Roasted diet for one week not taking any medicines then you surely will get benefited if you followed steps in my blog

Okay guys; let's understand how PPI class of drugs can cause the acidity issues
=========================================================
I have seen that women are the most suffering from this issue as I guess they seems to have more interaction with doctors because of women related issues.
In a typical scenario this is what happens :-->>

1) A Person goes to Doctor for some issues for which a small surgery was performed.
2) A Person is now prescribed Antibiotics, Painkillers, and PPI class of drugs for acid suppression as Painkillers & Antibiotics cause acidity issues and hence Doctors now as per latest technology use Acid Blockers and NOT acid neutralizing that was done before Year 1989.
3) A person is asked to continue this prescription for 1-2 weeks or more; till the surgical area can be healed.
4) A Person has completed the duration of prescription and now discontinues the drugs prescribed including PPI class of drugs
5) Doctors have probably forgotten the ACID REBOUND effect of PPI class of drugs so they never asked patient to do acid neutralizing for the acid that was released after stopping of PPI class of drugs.
6) A Person now feels more bouts of nausea, heaviness etc that are symptoms of acid released because of rebound effect of Stopping PPI.
7) So now if you did not have a leaky gut and you did not have a time; you will just ignore these symptoms and so you are saved for the rest.
8) But now if you panic and go back to doctor and Inform that you now have  nausea ,  heaviness etc that are symptoms of Acidity, what happens is that Doctors now put you back on PPI class of drugs to manage your acidity issues.
9) This is now a case where PPI stop acidity for a time , but when you stop them there is a Acid rebound which causes more acid release and since no acid neutralization was recommended upon stopping of PPI you start to get acidity issues.
10) A person can come out of this LOOP if they did acid neutralizing after stopping of PPI class of drugs. But did your doctors inform you this??
11) A study has already been published that PPI cause and enhance delayed emptying issues (Gastro Paresis) . What if we went back to old ways of acid neutralizing and stopped using acid blockers? Will not the problem go away then !!!. And what more proof is needed?
A simple problem of Acidity has become Frankenstein monster in the form of Gastro paresis and most of your are the living proof of how Pharmaceutical are playing the game so well by creating the customers and not providing the cure!!.

Okay I just saw a preview of FIRE IN THE BLOOD movie. Seems like they confirm what most of us already know.

WHAT IF INSTEAD OF ACID BLOCKERS, ACID NEUTRALIZING WAS USED?

Just picture this that you are in the Year 1988 when PPI were not yet Born (Thank God!).
Those days; instead of ACID BLOCKERS, Acid Neutralizer like Gelucil or any other Good Antacid was used to treat acidity issue that arose because of use of painkiller & antibiotics. The only difference here is that Acid neutralization is done on frequent basis where as acid blockers were just taken once or twice a day.
In that case in previous example when the duration of prescription was over (step 4); you should be sitting pretty and life just went on. Since Acid blockers were not used; there was NO ACID REBOUND and also No Side effect of Delayed Emptying of stomach (Gastro paresis).
In previous example I took you back to days when the problem was just ACIDITY, but because of prolonged use of acid blockers and pro kinetics now it has been GRADUATED to more complex Gastro Paresis and Acidosis. Look at the number of loops created.
1) PPI Loop (Remember that Hotel California song, you can Check Out anytime but you can never leave!!)
2) Gastro Paresis LOOP which manifests more issues  (Acidosis, Constipation, functional dyspepsia, anemia  etc )
3) and then Once you have all those devices in your stomach & Neck (G Tube , Feeding tube ) then this is  another loop that is created.
The only way out is to break these loop's. But remember that your first loop is PPI Loop and  I am here on  this website since almost 4 months and most of you have not yet accepted the fact that why you are stuck  and what is not causing you to get cured when you guys are doing practically everything right , right from  eating food that suits you, providing external nutrition's (TPN) etc. You can never ever reach home by driving one KM forward and then One KM Backward.

*****

*****

Okay; before we understand how to Break PPI Loop I would like to touch a very important problem that we all face when coping with GP/Acid reflux issues; and that is how to resolve CONSTIPATION issues?

I have used Cayenne Pepper Detox (Lemon Detox) mostly to deal with constipation and it works always. Just Squeeze lemon + Add very Hot cayenne Pepper (Hot red chilies powder) ¾ spoon + Luke warm water in a glass, and drink this every two hours 2-3 times a day. The lemon detox also talks about adding maple syrup but we will skip that as sugars will cause more acidity and we do not want to allow that. Drink plenty of water also in between to help detoxicate well.
At the outset it may look very scary but trust me guys, I have done it several times when dealing with my GP issues and it will only hurt for 3-4 seconds only. I have used this technique once or twice a week to clear all my stool buildup. Usually if you ate Soft diet you could avoid the stool buildup.
Having healthy salts (NOT Table Salt) like Unrefined Sea salt (Impure crystals), Black salt, Celtic salt/Himalayan pink salt also helps digestion as these salts are also laxative. I would sprinkle these salts on all my meals after they are served and YES these healthy salts do not cause any BP issues. Similarly mucilage food like Fenugreek seeds grounded, Flax seed powder, marshmallow root powder helps create slippage on intestinal walls which helps proper bowel functioning in long run. Have 2-3 spoons of these seeds powdered daily and see the difference.

BREAKING THE PPI LOOP, THE FIRST STEP TO FREEDOM
==========================================================
Okay Guys,
The easiest way to do switchover is to just stop the PPI/Pro Kinetic drugs, Eat Boiled Light meals Followed by a TRIPHALA Capsule after every  meal, and Sprinkle healthy Organic salts like Sea Salt(Impure crystals, Black , Rock salts) on every meal to avoid acid indigestion.
But since I want the switch over to be more resourceful and also that will also help us when we go in for breaking the Gastro Paresis LOOP which will be our next action, I would ask you to understand these point first below:

We will use antacids and natural antacids to break the PPI loop, but we will also do everything to avoid even antacid use by having the food that   does not cause acid buildup. It is very important for you and your stomach BOTH to forget that pills are needed to lead a normal eating life. And   for that we must be away from all kind of medications required to eat food. But how do we do that ?
We have to eat food that does not cause much acid release and also the food that does not sit in stomach for long time. For that you must understand the FOOD BEHAVIORS. If you start  to take a count of each food then it will be difficult for you to understand what food causes  problem and what food not. Therefore what we do here  is to look  for a CATEGORY of food that cannot be had at present till recovery takes place.  Our journey from Soft food (Quickly prepared) to Strong food is going to be slow one but will ensure final success. I would say that in just 8-12 weeks you would be eating away more than 50% of your favorite foods when not on any medicines, but keeping in mind food behaviors and gaps required.

In a nutshell :
1) you will avoid white flour foods, Baked foods, Food that is strongly cooked, Sugar,Fried food, all type of processed/canned food, Fatty food.
2) Or in other words you can have all type of green vegetables, lentils which are quickly prepared, Rice (boiled), when using oil for preparation never   use more than 1-2 tsp so that food is light to stomach. Look for more non-meat but un processed food list as per your country.
3) I have also used Chilled/cold Milk (No Sugar) with Kellogs product 19/Muesli (Oat clusters with banana, papaya, apple, and dates as some of ingredients).
4) Only ALKALINE food snacking with dried raisins, Figs, Dates, cucumbers, carrot, papaya, mango, banana, water melon etc as you do not want   to build acids during snacking. Make Beets, Spinach, cabbage, broccoli as part of all your meals.
Is this too difficult to remember?  --
Trigger food for acidity means combination of meat + food that delay digestion or take long to digest. If you know what type of food delay’s   digestion you will know how to eat it and how much gap is required. White flour, baked, Rich oily curries, Fried food cause delay in digestion and   that is why they must never be combined with meat to avoid acidosis in future. Meat is safe when had in isolation or with rice in   grilled/steamed/boiled form. But you must avoid meat at least during recovery period or have it in moderation once a week. Red meat to be avoided  at all costs as it takes longest to digest.
Similarly Red meat, White flour food (bread , flat bread etc), baked food ((Biscuits, cake, pastries etc)) , Fried food, processed food (canned  food, chips, chocolates, Ice cream etc), fatty foods ARE the foods that take long to digest and thus delay digestion and so to be avoided.
If we ate mostly vegan food that was not strongly cooked, and is not fried; less acids are produced and hence stomach can empty faster. Boiled food   is safest form and whenever I ate a meal that caused me stress my next meal would be just boiled food to let stomach rest and recover. Always had a TRIPHALA (Himalaya) capsule when I ate meal that would give me anxiety.
-------------
Getting off Constipation Drugs, H2 Blockers, and Proton Pump Inhibitors & Pro Kinetic drugs is very important first steps in managing this issue. Being on H2 Blockers/PPI class of drugs for long time and then stopping suddenly will have acid rebound effect. I have followed soft/grilled/steamed/Roasted diet or these example steps below when stopping PPI for first one first 3-4 days when putting a stop to PPI class of drugs:

Okay this is what I followed to break the PPI Loop:-
0)  3-days Before stopping the PPI/Pro Kinetics start taking TRIPHALA capsule(Himalaya) after every meal .
Also start using healthy salts with all meals.
1) Stopped all medications of PPI & Pro kinetic drugs.
2) Have Boiled /Soft diet (Quickly prepared food mostly vegan) for all 3 meals.
3) I have also used Chilled/cold Milk (No Sugar) with Kellogs product 19/Muesli, Followed by a TRIPHALA Capsule.
4)  Have only 3 meals. For snacking just use following: Raisins, Figs, cucumbers, carrots, Dates, apple juice or banana, papaya, mango, water  melon  alongside for moderate ALKALINE Food only snacking (only 3-4 hours after lunch).
5)  Triphala is an Excellent intestinal cleanse and Motility HERB. this herb has many benefits and a recovery without this herb may not be  possible. To see what else this herb does you can click on link below:
http://www.iherb.com/Himalaya-Herbal-Healthcare-Triphala-60-Caplets/3743  (this is what I have used)
http://nutritionreview.org/2013/04/triphala/
6)  Also sprinkle Organic salts  (NOT Table Salt) like Unrefined Sea salt (Impure crystals), Black salt, Rock salt , Celtic salt  on all meals.
The use of TRIPHALA capsule and  Organic Salts will make stopping PPI /Pro Kinetic drugs painless and you may not even know that you are off  them. There is more info below on triphala here:
http://www.iherb.com/Himalaya-Herbal-Healthcare-Triphala-60-Caplets/3743    (this is what I have used)
http://nutritionreview.org/2013/04/triphala/
http://www.nowfoods.com/Triphala-500mg-120-Tablets.htm
7)  Last but not the least I have used otc Antacids, Sea Salt added water, Cold milk (No sugar), coconut water, Baking soda dissolved in water  (Not Baking Powder) to sooth stomach  when I felt it turning acidic because of acid rebound effect of stopping PPI for first 3-4 days. Acid neutralizing is always preferred than acid  suppression. You may not even need to use any antacid if you took triphala.
8) After the PPI loop is broken and we are off these medicines, we will continue to have right food with Triphala after meal for next 4-6 weeks.
9) In just 5-7 days you would have seen the difference and understood whether you are on right path or not.
10) we will break the Gastro Paresis loop next once you have understood the PPI Loop break mechanism
11) If you are confused then just use triphala capsules  after all meals along with healthy salts with every meal and you will still be fine.
12) We can go to Gastro paresis LOOP break next but I will wait for the responses to carry on further or not.

Couple of points:
1) For Food, It does not matter whether it is Indian or American. Let us understand this way. It is the method of preparation that holds the key here. So I wrote all food must prepared in less than 7-7 minutes so that alkaline reserves in them are not lost. Similarly If oil is required for preparation then, never use more 1-2 tsp so that food remains light to stomach. Similarly we need to eat food that is more of alkaline forming and hence avoiding meat for now will help. This applies to all type of food whether Indian or American. Similarly we must avoid food or products that are made from white flour, are baked, fried, contain sugar, are canned or processed. So you see my point, it applies to all foods.
2) Good that you bought Himalayan salt, I could not get it here in India so I have used instead black salt, Sea salt (Impure, organic form), and Himalayan pink salts. And just to make sure I was sprinkling a pinch of all these salts on my food.
3) Stopping PPI shall be done as I prescribed above. at one go.
4) If we continue to mix cure mechanism by going to different doctors I think we will confuse it only. Since our mechanism is only about natural products one could just give it a try and not mix things up. If everyone is going to try and mix up things then how will you blame me it it went wrong, because then I can always say that you did not follow steps as I asked you to.
5) My point is that just trust the steps as they are, and there is nothing difficult here. Just stop PPI and use Triphala and Salts along with rightly prepared light vegan food and you are good

Hope this helps.

Let us consider this example to understand how we are going to eat:
===========================================================
The water  has reached its boiling point and now continues to simmer and boil. But as you increase the heat, you will see that it starts to boil with force and also spills out, as more and more heat is increased. Now in a scenario where the heat is increasing but at the same time we have to make sure that water does not spill out what you will do? Yes; you will add a small amount of cold water as you see increase in the heat. So, along with increasing the heat you will also continue to add cold water. This is a case where we stop the spilling of water by adding more and more cold water whenever the heat is increased. But a more desired scenario we need to achieve would be to add cold water and make sure that heat is at lowest level possible.

Similarly our Body heat(acidic state) is at highest level as of now. When we eat food the heat increases further because of acid released for digestion of food. The food just sits there waiting to be neutralized. So as we provide alkaline reserves with every meal we make sure that PH of digested food is brought to optimum level so that it can empty. That is why when you take that ACV (or Organic salts) before meal it helps neutralize the digested food and you do not feel acid reflux as food has now moved to next stage. ACV is an alkaline forming food.
But the more desired scenario we need to achieve is; by having food that do not cause much of acid release, food that are alkaline forming and can empty faster (by avoiding having food that take long to digest). Most of our food, Vegan or Meat already has alkaline reserves in them but as we cook them strongly for long times or fry them the alkaline reserves are lost and hence the need to supply alkaline reserves externally along with every meal. That's why the need to cook the food quickly (less than 7-8 minutes with least oil) so that it’s light to stomach and has alkaline reserves which are not destroyed because of strong cooking or too much oil. Because of acute acid buildup all our alkaline reserves are depleted and hence what we do now is to make all efforts to increase alkaline reserves but at the same time make sure not to continue eating Acidic food lifestyle. Since our body stores alkaline reserves in the form of salts what better way but to provide the reserves through salt themselves to speed up boosting these reserves. And the added advantage is that these healthy salts (Himalayan pink salt, black salt, Sea salt, Rock salts all in ORGANIC form) are also capable of absorbing heat.

*****

*****

ROLE OF ALKALINE RESERVES in MAINTAINING ACIDIC BALANCE  v/s Coolant in your CAR
==================================================================
Consider this example of role of COOLANT in a CAR. The job of coolant is to absorb the heat generate by the engine and transport it away, thus keeping the engine cool. Coolant, If left unchecked, the heat in the engine will build and reach a tipping point, after which the engine is liable to overheat and break down. This is why cooling systems are necessary.

Very similarly the ALKALINE RESERVES (calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, zinc) are required to neutralize excess heat or PH of digested food so that it can empty faster.  Have a look at alkaline reserves in ACV, Flax seeds, Raisins. Look at mineral sections as these are your alkaline reserves:-

http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/spices-and-herbs/217/2    (ACV)
http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/fruits-and-fruit-juices/2051/2   (Raisins)
http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/nut-and-seed-products/3163/2 (Flax seeds)

Since the digestion is impaired at present and stomach is not able to bring nutrients out of food, we soak the Raisins in water for 8-10 hours and when we drink this water and eat raisins;  helps restoring alkalinity of blood and also provides necessary Iron (This is same as TPN in medical terms).
This explanation also breaks your myth of ACV being regarded as test for low stomach acid, as in fact ACV is alkaline forming and helps increase PH of food because of its alkaline forming properties. Look Guys, even if LOW STOMACH ACID problem exists in some cases, all OUR problems at present are only  because of more acid and certainly not low acid so I would stop going in debates and getting confused on this aspect for now. But we will avoid ACV for others reasons and instead use Organic salts.
Thanks

JUST A QUICK REMINDER; You will fail the objective of this forum/program if you continue to use PPI/Pro Kinetic(motility) & Any Constipation medicines. Please know that Stomach and Colon are two sides of same coin. We shall take care of both of them by going totally natural. If you followed exactly by understanding the steps listed above you will be looking at a different life that is devoid of any medicine at least for acidity and Gastro Paresis, in around 8-12 weeks, the life that you have been only dreaming of till now. My request is to understand the post thoroughly by reading them several times. It would help you more if you first read my recovery blog on Word Press with same id as inspire Id (sunild1204). Similarly Our problems are because of More Acids and NOT low Acid therefore I request all those here on this website to discontinue taking HCL supplements as by doing that they are only causing EXPLICIT ACID INDIGESTION thereby aggravating the problem.

Since we apply holistic approach to solving the problem, we have to take care of entry (stomach), Exit (colon) and Fuel (Blood) all together to achieve greater results. That is why Flax seed powder, Fenugreek seed powder, chia seeds powder must be consumed daily to take care of bowel and constipation issues. I have used Cayenne pepper to clear acute poop buildup once a week. Yes Cayenne pepper and turmeric are healers and you do not need to be wary of these spices. If you read my recovery blog on Word Press you may get more clues on how to manage all these 3 factors.
Similarly Raisin soaked water , wheat grass powder are need to clean up the blood and provide minerals and necessary iron. What will save the day for you is organic Salts, so I would say buy Black  Salt (this is pink or grey in color), Himalayan salts, Sea salt that is impure or organic and use them several times  a day with all meals , fruits.
Yes all Snacking must be 100% alkaline so as to not promote acid buildup during extra food that we have between meals. White Flour takes long to digest so you may either avoid it at least during recovery or have it with gap of 24 hrs. You may use other type of flour instead which can be digested quick. All type of meat since, they require acid release for digestion can be avoided for now but can be had once a week in small portions in grilled/roasted or boiled form. Red meat and fried food is completely no for now. Yes, on this diet another thing that will happen is that you will see blood sugar getting controlled. I had borderline Diabetes but was completely gone when on this diet. Fenugreek seeds are known to regulate blood sugar level when consumed for long time.
When we go natural the cure is permanent but takes long time to come. Usually in around 8-12 weeks you would have noticed great progress when on this diet along with triphala and salts. We must continue to build alkaline reserves and follow 80% alkaline & 20% Acidic food habits to make the cure permanent in long run.

I have only covered 40% of the story but was waiting to see more updates. We still need to cover the second cause of Gastro Paresis which is because of Leaky Gut and subsequent acidosis. This is a different scenario and is more closed to what I suffered. This is a scenario where use of L - Glutamine is required at end to resolve the issue from Root. This is also a case where we start to lose lots of weight as blood acidity are at highest level and body tries to neutralize or bring back the PH level by buying minerals from bones and muscles. I remember I had lost my entire stomach during that time with only bones visible and virtually no belly. In this case immediately after every meal our stomach starts to burn as if its on slow gas/fire and you start to dread every meal. For now, I want those to come forward who are losing a lot of weight because of the issue and have shrunk in size. For these people, having food without Acid Blockers (PPI) is not imaginable as the stomach immediately goes on fire after every meal. They feel burning abdominal pain and dizziness after every meal.

*****

*****

So we understood following:->
1) We must avoid Acid Buildup by eating more of alkaline foods (e.g. avoid Sugar/meat for now)
2) We must avoid Food Buildup by eating food that do not take long  to digest (e.g. avoid White flour &  Fried foods for now). Your stomach is slow at present, so eating food that take long to digest only causes  more stress to stomach and therefore skip this type of food for now.
3) We must supply alkaline reserves with each meal by having quickly prepared food and Organic salts like Black salt/Himalayan pink salt.
4) We must take care of constipation issues by eating mucilage food every day (e.g. Flax seeds powder, Chia seeds powder, Fenugreek seeds powder, Clarified butter).
5) We must cleanse blood using Raisin Soaked water (raisins soaked for 8-10 hrs), Wheat grass powder or all such products that help cleanse blood.
6) Triphala is an excellent intestinal cleanse and motility HERB and can be easily replaced in place of PPI/Pro kinetics.
7) To help this method work you must not be using PPI/Pro Kinetics / Constipation drugs at all.

In fact we must start at first with lemon detox to make sure that there is no poop buildup because of prolonged slowing of stomach and colon. Just Squeeze Lemon + add 1/2 tea spoon of red chilies powder (Cayenne Pepper) + add water and drink this 2-3 times a day. This can be done at least one day a week to make sure that no poop buildup is happening till we have controlled the issue by going natural for few weeks. This method may look gross but is very effective, and remember that Cayenne pepper is a healer so you do  not need to be vary of this method. I have done this several times when struggling with my bowel issues. But usually after you start to take mucilage foods like Flax seed, chia seed the constipation problem is resolved and you do not need this method unless needed once a while.

*****

there are two types of problem faced w.r.to Acidity. One is Acid Reflux where acid goes back to neck area and caused heart burn. Second is Acidosis (My case) Where after every meal you start to feel burning pain around abdominal area as if stomach is put on slow fire after every meal you consume. this causes dizziness, fatigue and also you start to lose lots of weight with each passing day.

Now my cure mechanism works for both cases. Only if you belong to second case that is Acidosis, the food habits must be adhered to tightly on 100% basis and you can not take any chances on food that must be avoided during recovery period.

Look once you are having acidity issues, two things happen. 1- Your stomach is not able to bring out nutrition from food that you eat making you nutrition deficient in long run. This happens because of Acid indigestion meaning that, acids are present to digest food when they should not be; for e.g. acids are required for protein digestion but carbohydrate and fats require more alkaline environment for digestion  and hence presence of acids during carbohydrates and fats makes the food get digested without getting nutrients out of it. 2- Another thing that happens is that because of acid indigestion stomach is not able to produce required quantities of amino acids that are essential for internal repairs.

That is why my mechanism takes care of both Nutrition deficiency and provide externally glut amine amino acids required for internal repairs. But you must understand food behaviors and eat accordingly so as to not cause further ACID BUILDUP & FOOD BUILDUP.

Read my blog several times and you will know how this method can resolve the issue just in few months but you must continue to adhere to safe food habits to make this cure permanent in long run.
TRIPHALA is a natural pro kinetic HERB which helps not only stomach motility but also helps detox and other benefits while you are on this herb for few months. Similarly BLACK SALT or HIMALAYAN SALT will help cool down your stomach system and regulate digestive fires which go up with every meal. Here in India I use BLACK SALT with every meal which also has laxative properties.

ACIDIC STOMACH/ACIDOSIS/DYSPEPSIA/HYPER ACIDITY/STOMACH PROBLEMS ==================================================================

Guys, this one is my personal experience of dealing with a very complex issue. You may exercise your own judgment in following some of cure below.  You must read this blog in its entirety for at least 2-3 times to understand the cure mechanism. Also Brands of herbs that I used in this blog is only for reference to what I used, and not to promote or side with them. Yes, I am one of very rare, cured patient and hence am sharing my experience for benefit to others. My cure was mostly brought by my own persistent research on this matter after realization, that allopathic method has no cure (idiopathic) available except managing symptoms through medicines, as I searched on internet to find not even one case, where it was cured. Yes, most of you know or believe that gastro paresis (Delayed stomach emptying) cannot be cured as that is what your experience is. Since, I got cured once, and when it struck again after around 20 months I have been able to trace back and understand what caused my cure the first time.  This blog will help those who face following symptoms: - stomach anxieties after meals, burning pain around abdominal area, making you nausea, dizzy and always hungry and there is a considerable weight loss. Also it causes Acid reflux in some people if the valve at end of esophagus (neck) does not close properly. This blog shall also help those having acid reflux/GERD/Heartburn issues/Acidosis after meals. Also this is HOLISTIC program so all steps must be followed together as mentioned in this blog to get good results.

This blog has my own research on how to manage and possibly cure this problem (gastro paresis/Dysmotility/Acid Buildup) without medicines and only natural methods (Herbs/Stomach Exercises and Diet control) are used to control or cure this problem :->

Also if you do not want to worry about reading so much information and just skip to steps to deal with the issue, then here is the LINK:

http://sunild1204.wordpress.com/2013/07/29/gastro-paresis-hyper-acidity-delayed-stomach-emptying-dysmotility-recovery-program/

FIRST, THE POSSIBLE CURE/Management, the way I see it

================================================

NSAID Painkiller Drugs/Skipping meals on frequent basis/Eating mostly Acid forming food lifestyle where alkaline reserves are in short supply/Too much intake of Strong Food like Fried food, White Flour, Red Meat/Baked food or in some case surgeries or for some other reason, have Caused slow down in stomach Digestion thus resulting in Dysmotility Or Gastro paresis or partial paralysis of stomach Causing delayed emptying of stomach. Intake of fatty food (Rich oily) that was also Red meat (mutton) triggered Delayed emptying in my case. The acid accumulation affects especially if the mucus layer on intestinal wall has thinned. The delayed emptying may also be started by onset of Acidosis (My case). Acidosis may also be caused by renal tubular acidosis (RTA) that occurs when the kidneys fail to excrete acids into the urine, which causes a person's blood to remain too acidic. When your blood is contaminated with excess acids or your body liquids are acidic, results in all sorts of issues starting with slow digestion and then all subsequent related problems that manifest. Vice a versa Gastro paresis (Delayed emptying) will itself cause acid buildup and if you have thin mucus on stomach lining, may result in acidosis. Thus in some people (my case) where mucus layer on stomach lining is thinned may get acidosis if there is a prolonged acid buildup.

“   http://www.phoenixhealth.me/stomach_health.htm    “

” http://www.aboutgimotility.org/site/about-gi-motility/disorders-of-the-stomach/  “

Delayed emptying further results in ACID BUILDUP, and excess acids in turn make our stomach Sensitive thus making it difficult to drink tea coffee Alcohol or anything that stimulates the stomach. Mostly over acidic state in small intestine is the culprit which inhibits further emptying. The acids are also released, if you have consistent anxiety and panic attacks especially if they are centered on stomach area.  This causes stomach anxieties, severe weight loss and regular flare ups making you nausea, dizzy and always hungry etc.  It has major impact on your bowel movement as it literally slows it down causing severe constipation issues. What this means is that final cure shall ensure regular bowel movement. As acidity prone individuals (thin stomach/mucosal lining is not able to protect us from excess acids produced for digestion); we can never afford to have food that would hold acids released for digestion for long time in stomach. That means all type of meats shall be ate in isolation and not combined with white flour foods and the meat should never be fried. If you are going to eat food that would take long to digest e.g. white flour food, fried food then you must never eat meat along with these. Having a compromised stomach lining (thinned) the acids released for meat (protein) digestion are hold up if combined with food that take long to digest and thus would cause flare ups and would stress the stomach thereby promoting the delayed emptying. Conversely depletion of alkaline reserves (calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, zinc) causes digestive acids not to be neutralized properly thus hurting the intestinal lining and increased/prolonged acid buildup decreases the PH causing delayed emptying of stomach. Once delayed emptying has started it goes in loop and thus makes it difficult to recover unless you have understood the mechanism to deal with it as mentioned in this blog. The mechanism of Blood Cleanse/Intestinal cleanse (TRIPHALA) along with building alkaline reserves through Organic salts(Rock/Black/Sea salt (impure crystals) and using mucilage food like Flax,Fenugreek,Chia seeds to resolve constipation , Blood purification(Wheat grass powder/raisin soaked water) and L Glutamine based intestinal repairs shall help manage problem for good.



As acidity prone  individuals (thin stomach/mucosal lining is not able to protect us from excess acids produced for digestion);we must avoid Red meat, White flour products and Fried food or have them only in moderation (once every 7-10 days in small quantity only). All type of meat shall be had only in Grilled / Steamed/Roasted/ Boiled form to avoid acid buildup in future. Also White Flour foods should never be combined with meat as stomach will find it tough to digest two strong foods together and delay in digestion will hold acids for long time in your stomach thus causing you flare ups and subsequently acidosis if you have a thin mucus layer or stomach lining. Any food that will require lots of acids to be released (Red meat, Rich oily food) is no no for us. We must also look for products that help intestinal repair/ Mucosa support/gut repair protocol, that are specifically L - Glutamine based.  L - Glutamine (5gm minimum per day, 5 days a week) is known to help restore Gut lining thereby may help resolve the gastro paresis from root.

If you have used a Car with Dual fuel (Petrol & CNG) you must have noticed how it runs smoothly on petrol but when on CNG the pickup is not that smooth and you can feel that heavy load gives more issues when on CNG. What I am saying is, that our body runs gr8 when on good blood type, but when the same blood type is intoxicated or not healthy, we start to have problem like not able to eat heavy food and slow digestion. Our blood is made of what we ate in last 5-6 months. Our treatment therefore must include blood purification and Kidney cleanse as major tasks. This can be done by having good food type over next few months and by increasing alkaline reserves (calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, zinc that are found in seeds, salts & coconut water in plenty) that are needed to neutralize acids that are produced in body. As you build alkaline reserves you will see increase in digestion and say good bye to delayed stomach motility. That is why, when you are on allopathic PPI/H2 Blockers having good time continuing to eat same type of food that you are used to, but as soon as you stop taking pills, then you are back with issue, is because you have not replaced the blood with healthy type by eating healthy food. It is this unhealthy blood type that continues to cause delay emptying of stomach. So long, that you continue to suppress acids using PPI, delayed emptying will continue to persist. Read DISCUSSION section of article here:

“   http://gut.bmj.com/content/42/2/243.full   “

“   http://india-ayurvedic.blogspot.in/2012/07/ayurvedic-medicine-for-blood.html  “

It is this onset of ACIDOSIS that started Delayed emptying in my case, and acid buildup in turn manifested additional issues like Constipation(1), sensitive stomach(2) (where intake of spicy food especially liquid curries, tea coffee causes further anxiety), Functional dyspepsia(3) (feeling of fullness even with small meals) and also you cannot eat heavy meals (4) at this stage. Also depletion of alkaline reserves (5) causes indigestion and result in delayed digestion & Acidosis. We must also restore the mucus layer (6) on intestinal lining by having mucilage food every day.

All these 6 issues must be dealt with to get final cure i.e. increasing stomach motility.  Functional dyspepsia can be cured by stomach exercise (Kapalbhati/Sit up) while Triphala helps Sensitive stomach and motility issues. Restoring alkalinity of blood will help us in eating heavy foods. Similarly we must increase alkaline reserves by eating Healthy Salts along with regular table salts with every meal. To help restore mucus layer on intestinal walls, we shall continue to have 2 -3 spoonful of grounded flax seed powder (along with water), fenugreek seeds grounded , chia seeds gounded, Marshmallow root (Althaea officinalis) to help cultivate the right surface moisture and slippage on intestinal walls as the healthy mucus layer is essential to protect stomach lining from Acid secretion that takes place for digestion.

Instead what is required is, to follow a Leaky Gut Repair Protocol (Leaky Gut Prescription) that involves use of alkaline reserves (Seeds & Salts), TRIHPHALA capsule for motility, L Glutamine for Intestinal repair and lightly cooked diet that is devoid of Meat during recovery period, white Flour foods & Rich oily curries. Your food is going to be your medicine from now on. We will use right food; Intestinal & Blood cleanse and build alkaline reserves to get rid of this complex issue. Also we must increase alkaline reserves of body to reverse acidosis which is actually a root cause for delayed emptying of stomach. Consuming a diet of 80 percent alkaline-forming foods and 20 percent acid-forming foods can help build and preserve your alkaline reserve.  Drink ALKALINE water and electrolyte-containing beverages. We must also look for NATURAL methods to purify/restore alkalinity of the blood alongside for speedy recovery.  The journey from soft/Lightly prepared(Quickly prepared) diet To strong diet is a slow one, but will ensure final cure. There is also a section in this blog on How to Stop PPI/H2 Blockers. Please read that also. @@@ Getting off H2 Blockers/PPI class of drugs is one of the important steps in curing or managing this issue. @@@

Ingredients used by me: -

==========================

    Drakshasav/Panchasav (for acidosis cure, avoid during sensitive stomach stage) /Trikatu (for upper GI tract)/Manjishtha or Purim (HemoCare, Himalaya brand for Blood cleanse) Dashmularishta/ (for Immunity)/ mahamanjishtha kada/Raktashodhak Baidyanath blood purification rasayans. “    http://www.baidyanathayurveda.com/defectiveblood.html   “.

I have personally used L Glutamine based recovery powder (mucosa repair) along with Flax seeds (grind them), Alfalfa seeds grounded, Fenugreek seeds grounded, Chia seeds and Wheat grass juice along with raisins/ Chia seeds (sabja hindi) soaked water on daily basis to help restore alkalinity of blood and also to increase alkaline reserves (which are found in seeds, unrefined salts & coconut water in plenty).

You may use other natural methods/Brands for blood cleansing as per your choice. All that is required is, to find a way to purify/ restore alkalinity of the blood using natural methods as defective blood is the root cause in this case. Look for Goji berries Juice (Wolf Berries), Liquid Chlorophyll / Flax Seeds , chia seeds & Wheat Grass Juice products for Blood purification as they help restore alkalinity of the blood.  Goji berry juice is excellent for quick healing of acidosis as it is a excellent blood purifier.

Goji Berrie Juice effect on acidic blood: - “    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vhHe55s9rg    “

Liquid Chlorophyll benefits:-“            http://www.energiseforlife.com/wordpress/2009/02/11/health-benefits-of-liquid-chlorophyll/    “  



    Triphala  capsules  for (Himalaya brand , for lower GI tract, Intestinal cleanse) after every meal for motility and also to cure sensitive stomach. I took 3 caps every day for 3-4 weeks and then reducing it to 2 and then to one finally, before taking it occasionally every week. http://nutritionreview.org/2013/04/triphala

http://www.iherb.com/Himalaya-Herbal-Healthcare-Triphala-60-Caplets/3743

    Pure Ghee (Or clarified butter) (30-45 ml every day) for lubricating stomach and for better digestion. Buy and Drink alkaline water (PH > 7.5) if available.
    Kapalbhati / sit up Stomach exercise every morning to cure functional dyspepsia.
    Black raisins soaked (15-20 black raisins) in a glass of water for 8-10 hour and then drink this water +eat raisins. Do this twice every day for blood cleanse (Acidosis & Iron deficiency cure as these restore alkalinity of blood and also to increase alkaline reserves).   Also eat black raisins (at least 20 grams daily) to Improve Hemoglobin levels & good blood type as raisins are very alkaline  & Iron Rich. To increase absorption of Iron Rich food like raisins, cereals like Kellogg product/cheerios, wheat flour you must combine these with Vitamin C rich food like Oranges, citrus fruits etc.
    To cure Constipation, Daily basis have, 2-3 Spoon of one or all of Chia Seeds (sabja) grounded, Fenugreek seeds (methi seeds) grounded, grounded flax seed (alsi )powder, Marshmallow root powder (Althaea officinalis), Alfalfa seeds grounded  along with Some Water.  Eating Chia seeds/Flax Seeds grounded /alfalfa seeds grounded/Fenugreek seeds grounded daily is very important part of this cure. Just have looks at ingredients and Alkaline reserves you will get out of these; we usually soak these in water since our digestion is impaired: -”

    Our blood is made of what we ate in last 5-6 months. Hence to reverse acidosis (which is real cause of delayed emptying of stomach and thus subsequent problems) we will eat only healthy food (Vegetarian) for next 5-6 months avoiding meat (& fried foods) specifically and increasing alkaline reserves (which are found in seeds in plenty) , which will help us get back to eating all that we want to. No doubt it takes minimum around 8-12 weeks of good diet to start us on regular diet but we must continue to build alkaline reserves to make this cure permanent. During recovery we must take all precautions not to have further acid buildup and following blood purification/ restore alkalinity of the blood NATURAL WAY. Alkaline reserves (calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, zinc) are found plenty in seeds & unrefined salts like Black salts & Rock Salts. After the food is served sprinkle Black salt or Rock salt on food and see difference for yourself in your digestion.
    When you eat a meal that is overly acidic, your body must neutralize the acid and regulate the alkalinity of the blood. Your body neutralizes acids with organic sodium from its alkaline reserves.  Hence we shall increase Sodium reserves by eating healthy salts (at least 1 spoon daily). These salts contain many minerals that are very alkaline. Use unrefined Celtic Sea salt/Himalayan Pink salt/Black Salt/Rock Salt along with regular table salt in your food. These healthy salts are used as a digestive aid and to relieve heartburn, and are also a laxative. You shall see a marked difference in your digestion when you start using this type of salt along with regular refined table salt with your food. Just add a sprinkle of one or combination of all these salts to your fruits and meals and also your water that you drink before or after every meal. We must increase our salt reserves for better digestion and salts are not necessarily bad as they are made out to be.

The simple addition of mucilaginous foods like grounded flax seed (alsi) powder, Fenugreek seeds (Methi) grounded, Chia Seeds (Falooda or sabja seeds) or Marshmallow root (Althaea officinalis)  , along with good water intake could help cultivate the right surface moisture and slippage on intestinal walls to protect stomach from acid secretion that takes place during digestion. I would have 2-3 spoons of these powders & Chia seeds with water and also sprinkle these on meals. We must also look for products that help intestinal repair/ Mucosa support/gut repair protocol, that are specifically L - Glutamine powder based.  

L - Glutamine (5gm minimum per day, 5 days a week) is known to help restore Gut lining thereby may help resolve the gastro paresis from root.

    Last but not the least, a soft/Lightly prepared(Quickly prepared) diet(80% alkaline 20% Acidic mostly vegan) till recovery. We must increase alkaline reserves by having vegetable diet avoiding meat at least during recovery periods. Food at this stage can never be strongly cooked/heavy/fried (slow digestion) or acidic (strong Protein, meat).

Treatment therefore should be done using all of following steps:-

    Having only Soft diet food, avoiding strong/heavy food or food that takes long time to digest and also avoiding food that would require too much acids to be released (proteins). Start with Boiled only food diet for first 1-2 week (No oil/onion) as this is the lightest form of food to stomach. Boiled food diet to start with is also a   test to tell you, that if you can sustain boiled food and do not required any medicines and are not having stomach flare ups when you are on boiled food diet, then all steps below will mostly take you to recovery gradually, i.e. yours is a Food induced Dysmotility and can be cured by gradually increasing from soft to strong diet. Never skip a meal as frequent skipping of meal may affect stomach lining thus promoting acidosis. The journey from soft diet to strong diet is a slow one, but will ensure final cure.

Black & Rock salts contain alkaline minerals required for better digestion so sprinkle these on every meal and see difference for yourself.

    Avoiding acid buildup at all costs by sticking to grilled/Boiled/light preparation (Quickly prepared) of food and sticking to step 1. Avoid most baked goods or anything made with flour. Meat (Poultry, Fish) can be had only once 3-4 days during recovery. You shall mostly avoid strong foods (Flour based) and Meat during recovery period. Stick to Rice and Rice based foods. Trigger food for acidity means combination of meat + food that delay digestion or take long to digest. If you know what type of food delay’s digestion you will know how to eat it and how much gap is required. White flour, baked, Rich oily curries, Fried food cause delay in digestion and that is why they must never be combined with meat to avoid acidosis in future. Meat is safe when had in isolation or with rice in grilled/steamed/Roasted/boiled form. Have green smoothies/grounded seeds listed above/salts to increase alkaline reserve. “  http://www.womentowomen.com/bonehealth/alkaline-bones.aspx  “
    Dextoxing by using natural herb triphala or coconut water after every meal to help stomach lose excess acids and thus make it less sensitive. Never eat to full stomach. Eat up to 70-80%.  Use healthy salts with meal like Celtic salt/Black salt/Rock salt etc. Sensitive stomach, which is result of prolonged acid buildup, can be cured with triphala capsule after every meal which must be a soft/Lightly prepared (Quickly prepared) diet. To lubricate the stomach for better digestion, Have 1-2 spoon of pure Ghee (Or clarified butter) followed by cold/warm (not hot) milk every day only after you have cured sensitive stomach by taking triphala after every meal.  We must also look for NATURAL methods to purify the blood for speedy recovery.
    Only ALKALINE food snacking dried raisins, Figs, Dates, cucumbers, carrot, papaya, banana, water melon etc. Make Beets, Spinach, cabbage, broccoli part of all your daily meals. You must increase your alkaline reserves to reverse Acidosis which is root cause, thus other issues that follow delayed emptying.  Drink alkaline water and at least one table spoon of healthy salts along with chia/raisin seeds soaked water daily.  Alkaline reserves (calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, zinc) are found plenty in seeds & unrefined salts like Black salts & Rock Salts. After the food is served sprinkle Black salt or Rock salt on food and see difference for yourself in your digestion.

    Stomach exercise (Kapalbhati/Sit up) every day morning to bring elasticity back to stomach and also regain its motility. A breathing exercise called Kapalabhati is used to increase digestive fire and cure functional dyspepsia. An inhale is taken naturally, and on the exhale, the stomach muscles are snapped in forcefully to extract all the air. I do this at least 15-20 minutes every day morning (400-500 stomach steps). Like any other exercise this must be increased gradually. Also those with BP issues shall do it with 10 sec break every 20-30 steps. This exercise has helped me to enhance motility of stomach and also to cure Functional dyspepsia (where even small intake of food makes you full or stresses your stomach).

    Taking NATURAL CURE method AVOIDING MEDICINES, as this specific problem can be treated easily through natural means. Triphala has played very important role in this recovery in my example.  There is also a section in this blog on How to Stop PPI/H2 Blockers. Please read that also. Getting off H2 Blockers/PPI class of drugs is one of the important steps in curing or managing this issue.
    Doctors recommend small and frequent meals, but forget to mention that snack/food/meal must be either soft diet or alkaline and not add to further acid buildup.  All acidic category food must be in soft diet form only. That means you must avoid soft drinks, Sugar/fried/baked (Biscuits, cake, pastries etc)/red meat/flour, white flour (bread , flat bread etc)/all type of processed food (chips, tomato sauce, chocolates etc)  at all costs till the stomach is ready to take them back till recovery take place (at least 8-12 weeks of consistent diet monitoring). FRIED food is always no no for you henceforth.
    Bland food that is fried /baked will not help. Method of preparation is very important. Avoid most baked goods or anything made with flour. All food must be lightly prepared avoiding oil as far as possible or use only 1-2 spoon oil at most for preparing food. Spices are always welcome addition and they do not necessarily cause stomach anxieties.  Avoid all types of curries (liquid) if you have a sensitive stomach. My stomach ceased to sensitive after 7-10 days of use of Triphala after every meal.
    Combination of food made from flour and meat should be avoided.  Meat/ egg should never be combines with flour products (chapatti, flat bread, and bread).  Meat can be had with rice instead.  Similarly PH of food (chyme) in small intestine less than 3.5-4.0 will inhibit stomach emptying until duodenal chyme (food) can be neutralized.  What this means is that over acidic conditions  of food in small intestine which is the next stage of passing food from stomach, will delay further  emptying if the state of food (chyme) in small intestine is over acidic (> You shall read it as; Step1 causes step2 and step2 causes step3 and so on...
(REASON X causes Acidosis; Acidosis causes Blood PH lowering......)
1. REASON-X OR one example: Leaky Gut/Thinning of mucosa or intestinal lining (Caused by: uncontrolled use of NSAID painkiller drugs, Frequent skipping meals, Eating Acid forming food lifestyle, surgeries etc.)
2. Acidosis (causes Undigested food & acid go into blood causing blood contamination)
3. Blood PH goes down (Acidic blood state, causes depletion of alkaline reserves as blood must be restored to proper pH levels, borrows alkaline reserves from Bones/Muscles etc etc causing weight loss)  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vhHe55s9rg
=>>4. Start of Gastro paresis or Delayed emptying of stomach (GP itself Manifests more issues like:-Sensitive stomach, Constipation, acid buildup , acid reflux in some people, Functional Dyspepsia, cannot eat strong/heavy food ,depletion of alkaline reserves, Having acid forming meal cause more stomach anxieties and flare ups)
5.Doctors now prescribe PPI (PPI drugs suppress acid but as a side effect cause further Delayed emptying or Gastro Paresis as per research link/url already provided above, and also thousands of live people like you stuck and not getting any results prove this)
6. One Expects to be cured since you are on prescriptions but that never happens. What is the point in having prescription drugs if they are not going to cure you!!!!.
7. Loop Back to Step 4 as now Instead of curing GP, PPI's are now causing further delayed emptying (more GP!!) i.e. step 4.
8. So now you travel from step 4 to 5 and back to step 2 and you never ever come out. This is a LOOP.
9. If Cure is STEP 6 you never reach it as use of PPI drugs cause you to go backward to step 4.
10. To exit or break the LOOP you must first remove step 5. Similarly Pro-kinetic drugs have their own side effects. They work for some time for some people and for others they do not work at all. Hence the need to avoid this class of drug too. We do not want any drugs that interfere with logical functioning of stomach.

So now as per my experience (and I have done it guys) if you can take care of step 2 & Step 3 GASTRO PARESIS would be resolved, RIGHT? It is the Root cause in Step 1 that will take some more time to resolve or even if did not, then also by taking care of Step2 & Step 3 Gastro Paresis can be avoided. So now who says GP cannot be CURED ??!!!

So now your new step 5 onwards can be as follows (as Per my research, and guys it is all tested on me)
=====================================================================
1) Studies have found that L-glut amine supports the regeneration and repair of cells lining the intestinal wall. I have used L glut amine for Intestinal repairs (leaky Gut). I have myself used 2 products, Pure L Glutamine powder and British Nutrition’s Glutamine recovery formula. Trust me guys it has made a major difference. I got 3 benefits in just one month. Found that I my neck crackling sound was gone (arthritis of neck), Found that frequent bouts of cold was gone and I could eat ice cream & ice without getting cold Coughs, and off course the GUT has become more powerful and I have become more stronger.
2) Stop further acidosis (step 2) by having more of alkaline forming food and Lightly prepared food and ignoring acid forming food during recovery period.
3) Restoring alkalinity of Blood by following blood purification (e.g. Wheat-grass powder and also drinking Black raisin soaked water)
4) Control acid indigestion (Lower PH of chyme or digested food, causes delayed emptying as food must be neutralized before passed to next stage of stomach) by using one or combination of ORGANIC Sea Salts(Impure crystals), Rock salt, black Salt, Celtic salt and Himalayan pink salts which ever you can get hold of. These ORGANIC SALTS are capable of absorbing heat and very necessary as every meal causes digestive fires to go up. I normally would sprinkle these salts with every meal. Trust me Acid Indigestion will feel like a myth if you did this with every meal.
5) The one MOST IMPORTANT HERB we use is TRIPHALA capsules. This herb has many many benefits and recovery without this one herb may not be possible. This herb will help cleanse Intestines , Blood purification, Motility etc etc. This herb will also help cure sensitive stomach which is result of acute acid buildup causing stomach to become soggy and sensitive.
6) CONSTIPATION is one majot issue which can be resolved by having mucilage food like Grounded Flax seeds, Fenugreek seeds, Chia seeds and Clarified butter (Ghee) On every day basis.
7) Also there is a method to stop PPI class of drugs which is mentioned in my blog. You must neutralize acids as sudden stop of PPI will cause acid rebound effect for 3-4 days but as long as you know how to neutralize acids using antacids or other methods you will be fine and on way to recovery in few days. Some people who tried stopping PPI without knowing the method got panicked as acid rebound effect of sudden stop of these drugs will cause more anxieties if you did not take care of neutralizing acids on more frequent basis. Just read the section on how to stop PPI in my blog and you will know.
8) All that is needed is to follow journey from lightly cooked (Quickly prepared) diet to Strong diet gradually, ignoring acid forming food like White Flour, Red meat, all type of Process food etc etc. The mechanism of Blood Cleanse/Intestinal cleanse (TRIPHALA) along with building alkaline reserves through Organic salts(Rock/Black/Sea salt (impure crystals) and using mucilage food like Flax,Fenugreek,Chia seeds to resolve constipation , Blood purification(Wheat grass powder/raisin soaked water) and L Glutamine based intestinal repairs shall help manage problem for good.

HOW IT STARTED

===============

Once while dealing with an Ear pain I had painkillers. The side effect of painkillers started acidity and resulting anxiety and panic aggravated it to hyper acidity.

I suffered from this for almost 6-7 months but can say that I have recovered almost completely although I still watch out for trigger food for acidity like Greasy- oily or fried food and red meat largely avoiding them or having them in moderation only. My ENDOSCOPY confirmed that I had no ulcer but I was only suffering from hyper acidity.

If you suffered from anxiety and panic attacks like me then you must make sure that you put a complete stop to them. This is very easy as once you decide that you no longer want to have anxiety or panic, your body will listen to it. Keep instructing yourself that I will no longer have anxiety or Panic. These panic attacks that are centered on stomach will stress your stomach causing it to release more and more acids.

On looking carefully I found that these anxiety and panic attacks had caused cramps and spasm in my stomach. What this means is that my panics attacks were actually affecting my stomach areas causing spasm and cramps during panic attacks. My belief is, that caused the logical system of stomach to go haywire thus causing Acid buildup or Hyper-acidity. The prolonged acid buildup in turn caused dyspepsia/gastro paresis and other issues like constipation. Using PPI/H2 Blockers (Razo, Nexium etc) and allopathic motility/kinetic drugs do not cure this except suppressing symptoms, and in fact the problem comes back  later once you stopped PPI/H2 Blockers. Most important is that you should have faith that this will get cured. But the cure will take at least around 12 weeks of consistent use of stomach motility enhancing treatment along with soft diet.





THE PROBLEM / ACID INDIGESTION/ Dysmotility/ gastroparesis

===================================================

The stomach is partially paralyzed (Dysmotility) because of reaction of either some medicines (Painkillers-NSAID/Surgery/Panic attacks centered on stomach etc) or strong food that took long time to digest, and is thus causing delayed emptying/digestion of food, resulting in acid buildup as more acids are released because of undigested food remaining in stomach (food and acids produced during previous meals are not being emptied when next meal is taken. Generally when a food is taken it stimulates emptying of stomach of previous meals and acids).

“   http://www.ehow.com/about_4689104_natural-medicine-dysmotility.html    “

“     http://www.buzzle.com/articles/triphala-benefits.html    “

Although the root cause is Acidosis and subsequent slow moving stomach digestion, the resulting symptoms are usually same; as acid buildup accumulated during digestion causes blood ph to go down aggravating acidosis, stomach anxieties, severe weight loss and regular flare ups making you nausea, dizzy and always hungry along with severe weight loss etc. We have to resolve this issue on two fronts, one would be to help stomach achieve required motility by stomach exercises (Sit-up or Kapalbhati) and natural motility herbs (Ginger/Triphala), and other would be to use natural methods to cleanse blood along with controlling further acid buildup by reducing acidic food intake and going in for magnesium/alkaline based food as major food and having acidic food only in form of soft diet.  “   http://www.vaughns-1-pagers.com/food/magnesium-foods.htm   “   “  http://www.wellnesspathways.com/handouts/acidalkalinefoodchart.pdf  “

Stomach has become sensitive because of acid buildup. Acids are also secreted by direct stimulation, when we consume stomach stimulants like Tea Coffee during sensitive stomach. The one way to deal with is to control acid secretion and that is what these PPI/H2 blockers (Razo, Nexium etc)  do and then there are these ANTACIDS who help neutralize the acids in stomach but here you cannot control as to how much of acids will be Neutralized !. Acids are usually released when digesting protein or when there is undigested food in stomach. PPI/H2blockers line of treatment only suppresses release of acid from parietal cells, but as soon as we stop medication, Acid Buildup is back, and thus we do not get required results and the problem resurfaces.

We will do away with PPI/H2 Blockers as you do not want to interfere with logical functioning of stomach.  Also one study suggested that suppression of gastric acid per se resulted in delayed gastric emptying which is the root cause in our case. Getting off H2 Blockers/PPI class of drugs is one of the important steps in curing or managing this issue.In fact you may never ever recover if your are on PPI/H2 Blockers medicines.

Read DISCUSSION section of article here:   “   http://gut.bmj.com/content/42/2/243.full   “There is also a section in this blog on How to Stop PPI/H2 Blockers. Please read that also.

The diet for ULCER cure is avoiding all  types of Diary, No Meat, Only boiled food diet or alkaline only food for all 3 meals & no (Acidic food) snacking, Avoiding PPI/H2 Blockers as medicines , Digestive Enzymes before large meals and avoiding all stomach stimulant like Onion curries, Tea coffee & alcohol and pickles for 4-6 weeks. But since here we are only dealing with hyper acidic state or Acid buildup (because of Dysmotility or slowed digestion), we will do away with this method.

“   http://drpullen.com/ProtonPumpInhibitors  “

LINE OF TREATMENT/THE METHOD I HAVE USED TO CURE

=====================================================

First Thing you must do is to STOP ALL MEDICATION of Proton Pump Inhibitors / H2 Blockers Class of Drugs (e.g. NEXIUM, ranitidine, famotidine, omeprazole, RAZO etc) that you are used to for suppressing Acid. It is proven that these drugs although help suppress acids but as a side effect enhance dysmotility or slow stomach emptying making sure that you never get cured. You must also stop all Pro kinetic / motility class of drugs (e.g. REGLAN, Domperidone, Erythromycin) as these have many side effects and are mostly ineffective in long run. FOR THIS PROGRAM TO SUCCEED YOU MUST BE OFF PPI/Kinetic Class of drugs. Please know that PPI class of drugs is used for SUPRESSING ACID While PRO KINETIC Drugs are used to push the digested food through stomach (Motility) for EVERY MEAL you take.

All you need to do is to TRUST THIS PROGRAM (as most of what I write is already tested on me), and you will realize that what you were doing before was just a faulty line of treatment enforced upon you by the medical fraternity which has really not understood gastro paresis problem till now. All they do is to just enforce a generic program that included PPI/PRO kinetic class of drugs along with antacids to manage the issue and thereby make you all SLAVE to this faulty mechanism that only brings more problems later. So long, that you continue to suppress acids using PPI, delayed emptying will continue to persist. Read DISCUSSION section of article here: “   http://gut.bmj.com/content/42/2/243.full   “

Treating hyperacidity with PPI/allopathic motility drugs/H2 Blockers (Razo, Nexium etc) is not the way to go. I have found that, using Light food/Soft Diet along with using black Raisin water & Triphala Capsules (intestinal cleanse)  after every meal cures the problem for good. We must also use natural methods to cleanse blood for speedy recovery. Triphala, from Indian ayurvedic natural herbs helps with Motility of stomach thus enhancing faster emptying of stomach and can be taken after each meal.  “   http://nutritionreview.org/2013/04/triphala  "

It is recommended to have triphala morning and evening or as suggested after every meal. Triphala initially may be hard on your stomach so wait till you get used to it. Please know that this problem of acidity usually takes at least around 8-12 weeks to cure, so do not discontinue any of tablets above but have soft diet also as mentioned above.

Also Antacids can be used to neutralize the excess acids, but still here we are not dealing with the actual problem i.e. Delayed emptying of stomach which is the root cause. The cure lies in  having only alkaline food / Soft Diet (Light preparation of food or food that is not strongly cooked and is quickly prepared) for duration of time and then gradually going in for regular food (Acidic & Alkaline but softly cooked)

The stomach at this stage (Dysmotility/slow digestion) is not able to digest STRONGLY COOKED/Heavy food or food that is FRIED or is a MEAT. Also stomach will give anxiety/flare ups if you ate food that either required lots of acids to be released (Proteins) or is strong (white flour & Fried). (dishes that are prepared in around or less than 10 minutes of cooking (light preparation of food and is quickly prepared) and are not curried [dry preparation] and around  1-2 spoon oil are mostly soft to stomach). A dish that took more time to cook is normally a strong food, and our stomach will start releasing acids to digest this and hence we must avoid strongly cooked food for at least 10-12 weeks.  That is why onion curries or any other curries must be avoided initially as usually they are prepared after lots of cooking and can stimulate the stomach, and thus are stressful to stomach. Since the stomach has now become sensitive because of too much acid, we have to avoid all stomach stimulants like Onion curries, pickle, citric acid, tea coffee etc. That means you must avoid soft drinks, Sugar/fried/baked (Biscuits, cake, pastries etc)/red meat/ flour (bread, chapatti etc)/all type of processed food (chips, tomato sauce, chocolates etc) ,  at all costs till the stomach is ready to take them back till recovery take place. Similarly the acid indigestion requires only soft diet  for a period of time before stomach can recover back and is able to digest strong foods. Also we will use NATURAL digestive Tonics(Not enzymes)/Triphala to help improve digestion. Triphala initially may be hard on your stomach so wait till you get used to it. To lubricate the stomach for better digestion, Have 1-2 spoon of pure Ghee (Or clarified butter) followed by Cold/warm milk every day only after you have cured sensitive stomach by taking triphala after every meal.  Also we must increase alkaline reserves of body to reverse acidosis which is actually a root cause for delayed emptying of stomach. Consuming a diet of 80 percent alkaline-forming foods and 20 percent acid-forming foods can help build and preserve your alkaline reserve.  Drink alkaline water and electrolyte-containing beverages. We must also look for NATURAL methods to purify/ restore alkalinity of the blood for speedy recovery.  The journey from soft diet to strong diet is a slow one, but will ensure final cure.









WHAT /HOW TO EAT in HYPERACIDITY/ Gastro paresis /Dysmotility

========================================================

This is the biggest question that everyone has as to what to eat that will not cause stomach anxieties.  Finally, it comes to intake of fatty food (Rich Oily) which is also a Meat that triggered Acidosis and subsequent delayed emptying in my case. Your food is going to be your medicine from now on. We will use right food; Intestinal & Blood cleanse, build alkaline reserves along with healthy salts to get rid of this complex issue. My personal experience says that if we stick to lightly cooked food, food that is Soft diet/Lightly prepared(Quickly prepared) and if required, is prepared with 1- 2 spoon of oil  (less/No oil the better) and is prepared in less than 10 Minutes and is not curried (No liquid curry) will not cause any anxiety. Also along with regular salts; use healthy salts like Celtic Sea salt/Himalayan Pink salt/Black Salt/Rock Salt or combination of all these salts. These salts help in digestion and prevent indigestion. Avoid most baked goods or anything made from White FLOUR. It is okay to have spices as they really do not cause any issues, except that, may be their quantity should be less. The stomach digestion being weak in this condition (Delayed emptying/ gastro paresis/ Dysmotility), STRONGLY cooked food (food that took long time to prepare), or food that is fried/Red meat or white flour/baked causes release of acids thus giving anxiety.  Also grilled/Tandoori/Boiled/Steamed/Roasted food will not cause any harm, that is why boiled egg, omelet (prepared in 1/2 TSP oil) are okay. If we stick to light food /Soft diet for around 12 weeks we would have mostly got rid of this complex issue. Also taking help of Triphala  after  will help get our digestion rejuvenated and thus will help us get rid of this complex issue. Also take Triphala one Capsule morning and evening or after every meal. To lubricate the stomach for better digestion, Have 1-2 spoon of pure Ghee (Or clarified butter) followed by Cold milk every day only after you have cured sensitive stomach by taking triphala after every meal.. Please know that this problem of acidity usually takes at least around 8-12 weeks, so do not discontinue any of tablets above but have soft diet also as mentioned above. I always had magnesium based vegetable (Spinach for example) reserved for night (dinner) as they sooth your stomach since magnesium is a natural antacid.”  http://www.vaughns-1-pagers.com/food/magnesium-foods.htm “

Always eat acidic food in Soft diet / Boiled/ Grilled/Steamed/Roasted form only. Also all snacking should be Alkaline only as you do not want to push acidic food thus promoting acid buildup during snacking. Only have 3 meals and no (Acidic food) snacking. Keep dried raisins, Figs, cucumber, Dates, banana, papaya, water melon and carrot for moderate ALKALINE Food only snacking purposes and strictly avoiding all stomach stimulants like Onion curries, Tea Coffee Alcohol pickle etc at least during sensitive stomach stage. That means you must avoid soft drinks, Sugar/fried/baked (Biscuits, cake, pastries etc)/red meat/ flour (bread/chapatti etc)/all type of processed food (chips, tomato sauce, chocolates etc) ,  at all costs till the stomach is ready to take them back till recovery take place. So guys, strictly avoid strongly cooked food and fried food and red meat in this period (around 12 weeks of recovery time). To speed up the recovery, also have NATURAL digestive Tonics(Not enzymes!, e.g. drakshasava/panchasav avoid during sensitive stomach stage) Triphala just before/after meals to increase stomach motility.  Also we must increase alkaline reserves of body to reverse acidosis which is actually a root cause for delayed emptying of stomach. Consuming a diet of 80 percent alkaline-forming foods and 20 percent acid-forming foods can help build and preserve your alkaline reserve.  Drink water and electrolyte-containing beverages. We must also look for NATURAL methods to purify/ restore alkalinity of the blood for speedy recovery.  The journey from soft diet to strong diet is a slow one, but will ensure final cure.

Also remember that if your stomach gives you anxiety after any meal, then you surely ate something that was either Fried or it was meat or it was food made from flour. For example I found that although vegetable Okra is alkaline food, but since it is first always fried, inclusion of Okra always gave stomach anxiety. So even with safe foods, the method of cooking is very important so as to not give you stomach anxiety. We must avoid acid buildup in future to prevent re occurrence of gastro paresis, avoiding trigger food that takes long to digest (for e.g. Red meat, Rich Oily Fried food & White flour or baked food products specifically). Milk should be had only Cold/Chilled (Never drink Hot milk). Avoid most baked goods or anything made from White FLOUR.

As acidity prone (we have thin stomach/mucosal lining) individuals we must avoid Red meat, White flour products and Fried food or have them only in moderation (once every 7-10 days in small quantity only). All type of meat shall be had only in Grilled / Steamed/Roasted/ Boiled form to avoid acid buildup in future. Also White Flour foods should never be combined with meat as stomach will find it tough to digest two strong foods together.



** A NOTE on How to Stop PPI/H2 Blockers **

Getting off H2 Blockers & Proton Pump Inhibitors (Nexium, ranitidine, famotidine, omeprazole, Razo etc) is very important first steps in managing this issue. Being on H2 Blockers/PPI class of drugs for long time and then stopping suddenly will have acid rebound effect. You must follow soft/grilled/steamed/Roasted diet or these example steps below when stopping PPI for first one week (Never ever go back to PPI class of drugs if you want to get cured of this issue):-

1)      Soft diet Breakfast- e.g. Chilled/cold Milk (No Sugar) with Kellogs product 19/Muesli (Oat clusters with banana, papaya, apple, and dates as some of ingredients).

2)      Soft diet Lunch – BOILED Food Only (Soft diet food). NO SPICES and NO OIL AT ALL. In my case I would just cook rice with all vegetables (No Onion & No Garlic) put in it during making of it. No meat please.

3)      Night food- Curd (Yogurt) + Rice OR (lightly cooked Rice + Spinach, use not more than 1 tsp oil for cooking )

4)      Have only 3 meals and no other food. For snacking just use following: Raisins, Figs, cucumbers, carrots, Dates, apple juice or banana, papaya, water melon alongside for moderate ALKALINE Food only snacking (only 4-5 hours after lunch).

5)      No Meat and No tea coffee and alcohol.

6)      I also took 1 Triphala Capsule (Himalaya Brand) after every meal for intestinal cleanse and enhancing motility.

7)      Last but not the least, use Antacids, Cold milk, Baking soda dissolved in water (Not Baking Powder) to sooth your stomach when you felt it turning acidic because of acid rebound effect of stopping PPI for first 3-4 days. Acid neutralizing is always preferred than acid suppression, which is what these PPI do. PPI also feed delayed emptying making sure that gastro paresis never goes away. No doubt that they (Doctors) call gastro paresis as progressive as the very drug they prescribe (PPI class of drugs), make sure that delayed emptying never really gets cured.  Read Discussion Section here: http://gut.bmj.com/content/42/2/243.full

If you can survive on soft /grilled/steamed/Roasted diet for one week not taking any medicines then you surely will get benefited if you followed steps in my blog.



*** A Note on Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) & its use ***

When you eat meal the acid released for digestion must be neutralized to help stomach empty. When the alkaline reserves (Calcium   Iron Magnesium Phosphorus Potassium Sodium Zinc) deplete it causes delay in emptying and subsequent acid buildup in stomach. In some people this acid can get refluxed to esophagus (neck) causing heartburn. People with acid reflux symptoms only have got benefited by using ACV with every meal. ACV although very acidic leaves alkaline ash and hence helps neutralize excess acid released for digestion. The Digested food must be neutralized before it can be passed on to next stage in stomach for digestion. If the PH of digested food is low it just sits there along with acid released for digestion and hence causes acid reflux in some people. What is required in fact is a steady supply of Alkaline reserves to bring back PH to normal level for every meal and hence I use Organic salts with every meal which not only supply much needed alkaline reserves but also help bring pH to normal.

But I find this (ACV) as very dangerous or cumbersome way of providing alkaline reserves to stomach with every meal as ACV is very acidic in nature and can harm stomach if not diluted enough. We can in instead use healthy salts (Black/Rock/Celtic) with every meal to give same effect of providing alkaline reserves as these salts contain similar alkaline reserves needed for quick neutralizing of acids. ALSO ACV is not recommended for people with sensitive stomach and acidosis as it will hurt the stomach causing further damage to stomach and its lining. Just have a look at alkaline reserves for both ACV & Salts.

I have used salts/grounded seeds instead, as this can be used by people having GERD (Acid Reflux) as well as Sensitive stomach (leaky gut) and acidosis symptoms. Just look for salts that have following alkaline reserves (Calcium   Iron Magnesium Phosphorus Potassium Sodium Zinc) and use this salt with every meal. Flax seeds also contain required alkaline reserves. Just have a look at MINERAL section of these links below. This is what you need to eat with all your meals to not have any anxiety later.

** A Note on ALKALINE RESERVES **

Alkaline reserves ((calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, zinc)) are needed to neutralize the acids that are released for digestion. These are found a plenty in Seeds (flax, chia, Fenugreek, alfalfa; grounded), Unrefined Salts (Himalayan, Black, Rock & Celtic Salts) & Coconut water. Just have a look at nutritional values and you will understand well. We will need to supply alkaline reserves with all our meals to avoid indigestion and subsequent slow moving digestion. Also; since we are acidity prone individuals (having thin intestinal lining which cannot protect us from acids that are released for digestion) we need to avoid Red meat and Rich oily foods to cure slow digestion in long run. These seeds above, along with providing alkaline reserves are also mucilage food; that help create slippage in intestinal track thus help in curing constipation issues in long run. Also I sprinkle unrefined salts listed above on food for better digestion as they also contain minerals that alkaline reserves.

** A NOTE on ACIDOSIS ***

Causes of acidosis include: disorders of the kidneys, liver and adrenal glands; emotional upset; stress; and excess niacin or aspirin or NSAID painkiller drugs. Since, the blood acidity has increased (low blood pH), we must do every possible way to cleanse/restore alkalinity of the blood naturally. We must use natural detox methods to purify Blood to speed up recovery. I have personally used raisin/chia seeds soaked water, Alfalfa seed/Wheat grass juice to help restore alkalinity of blood which has helped me eat heavy meals without any problem.

An unbalanced pH leads the body to borrow the missing minerals from the body’s reserves. Such minerals are magnesium, calcium, sodium and potassium which are stored and normally found in vital organs and bones. Alkaline body balance can be restored by proper diet and the aid of supplements that will encourage or replace lost minerals. Acidosis or acidity can affect a person in different ways, brittle bones, hormonal problems, osteoporosis, diabetes, obesity, yeast or fungal infections, low energy levels or sluggishness, slow digestions, joint pain and muscle pain are just some results of an imbalance. You need to drink water that is alkaline and ionized. Alkaline water helps to neutralize stored acids and toxins. Once these acids are neutralized, they can then be removed by the body. http://talk.philmusic.com/index.php?topic=224404.10;wap2

If you have used a Car with Dual fuel (Petrol & CNG) you must have noticed how it runs smoothly on petrol but when on CNG the pickup is not that smooth and you can feel that heavy load gives more issues when on CNG. . Our blood is made of what we ate in last 5-6 months. What I am saying is, that our body runs gr8 when on good blood type, but when the same blood type is intoxicated or not healthy, we start to have problem like not able to eat heavy food and slow digestion. Our treatment therefore must include blood purification as major tasks. This can be done by having good food type over next few months and by increasing alkaline reserves that are needed to neutralize acids that are produced in body.

Also Soak Black raisins (15-20) in a small glass of water and let it soak for 8-10 hours.  You must drink this water every day (twice) and eat black raisins alongside will help increase weight and lower blood acidity.  To increase absorption of Iron Rich food like raisins, cereals like Kellogg product/cheerios, wheat flour you must combine these with Vitamin C rich food like Oranges, citrus fruits etc. I have personally used raisin water added along with chia seeds, Alfalfa/Flax seed /Fenugreek seeds grounded/Wheat grass juice to help restore alkalinity of blood which has helped me eat heavy meals without any problem. This must be done till you got rid of acidosis and constipation. Eating black raisins daily is very important part of this cure.

** A NOTE on TRIPHALA ***

An Herb called Triphala, help to cure Sensitive stomach and also help with gastric motility. Triphala can very well be used instead of allopathic kinetic/motility drugs. I have used triphala capsule (Himalaya) after every meal initially for 3-4 weeks and then reducing it to twice a day and finally taking a capsule only once a day at nights. Yes, these may cause constipation but benefits far outweigh this one side effect. My stomach ceased to be sensitive after 2-3 weeks of triphala use. I would say that we must continue to cure constipation separately as and when required but taking triphala for at least 4-6 weeks will bring about final cure for sure as in my case. During trihpala intake you must Drink 3-4 spoon of pure Ghee (Or clarified butter) daily followed by glass of Cold/warm (Not Hot) milk before sleep to lubricate your stomach and help with constipation issues.

“      http://www.favorfinesse.com/hhtriphala.shtml   “

** Note on dealing with constipation **

Slow digestion and Constipation go hand in hand. Constipation is frequent side effect during this stage so we must make conscious efforts to make a bowel movement and also cure it using natural or any other suitable method. You must Drink 2-3 spoon of pure Ghee (Or clarified butter) daily, followed by glass of Cold/warm (Not Hot) milk before sleep to lubricate your stomach and help with digestion & constipation issues. I have used Cayenne Pepper Detox (Lemon Detox) mostly to deal with constipation and it works always. Just Squeeze lemon + Add Hot cayenne Pepper (Hot red chilies powder) ¾ spoon + Luke warm water in a glass, and drink this every two hours 2-3 times a day. Drink plenty of water also in between to help detoxicate well. Having healthy salts like Black salt, Rock salt , Celtic salt also helps digestion as these salts are also laxative. Similarly mucilage food like Fenugreek seeds grounded, Flax seed powder, marshmallow root powder helps create slippage on intestinal walls which helps proper bowel functioning in long run. Have 2-3 spoons of these seeds powdered daily and see the difference.

Here is one URL for this: “   http://www.naturalnews.com/035854_lemons_detox_recipe.html  “

Or Google Search “cayenne pepper detox”

I have also used castor oil/Prunes for constipation cure.

Other method is to just gulp 4-5 cloves of freshly crushed garlic at one go.





** Note on Digestive Enzymes **

In my experience digestive enzymes (Example Digeplex T) although bring a lots of energy as they help you get all nutrients from food while digestion, they also happen to cause constipation because of slow motility as the food digested takes long to empty. Digestive enzymes supplements will reduce the need for stomach acids thereby giving chance to rest the stomach. Digestive enzymes must be assisted by motility herb like Triphala.

In my opinion, taking Digestive Enzymes just before meal followed by Triphala capsule is still a better method or line of treatment to heal stomach then going on with PPI drugs/H2 Blockers or Motility/Kinetic allopathic drugs line of treatment. To lubricate the stomach for better digestion, Have 1-2 spoon of pure Ghee (Or clarified butter) followed by cold/warm (Not hot) milk every day only.

I have used digestive enzymes (e.g. Digeplex T) only for large meals (Lunch or buffet especially where fatty & fried food was involved) when needed. Since our problem is because of slowed stomach motility, I preferred to use triphala which is natural herb for Detoxication/Intestinal Cleanse and faster stomach motility. How it works is that, Digestive enzymes help break food thereby less acids are produced during digestion and Triphala is an excellent Intestinal cleanse and motility herb, thereby makes sure that food and digestive juices are not hold up for long in stomach.

“     http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/08/21/enzymes-special-report.aspx “

In short, do stomach exercise (kapalbhati, sit-up), Stay away from Fried food & Red meat,  have food that is Boiled/Grilled Or lightly prepared(Quickly prepared, 1-2 spoon oil, cooked less than 10 minutes and is not curried, Dried preparing), sticking to 3 meals, strictly avoiding stomach stimulant like Tea Coffee alcohol and no snacking before Lunch and breakfast, and only Dates, cucumbers, carrot, papaya, banana, water melon (moderate ALKALINE Food only snacking can be done only after 4-5 hours after lunch) as snacks and using Digestive tonic/Triphala before or after each meals and also using products that help restore alkalinity of blood (Raisin/chai seed soaked water, wheat grass juice, Alfalfa/flax seed grinded), L-Glutamine powder to help gut repair for 8-12 weeks, having 1-2 spoon of pure Ghee (Or clarified butter) followed by cold milk, would definitely restore your stomach back. Always eat acidic food in Soft diet / Boiled/ Grilled form only. Also all snacking should be Alkaline only as you do not want to push acidic food thus promoting acid buildup during snacking.

“   http://www.organicindia.com/triphala.php   ”

I have included SOFT DIET CHART at the end that I followed. I suggest you make your own food chart for all these three recovery steps.

Let us start with solution: - The solution actually lies in Diet control and behavioral/lifestyle changes. If you are on h2 blockers or PPI drugs (Razo, Nexium etc) then my suggestion is to put a stop to them after you started this remedy below:-

Follow these points strictly and completely 100%:à

=====================================

1) First and foremost if you are hyper personality make sure that you slow (cool) down. Slow down in everything. E.g. eat food slowly, walk slowly, react slowly etc. You must be careful with painkiller drugs (NSAIDs) as frequent use of these will trigger acidity. Put a stop to heavy exercise, light exercise would do well.

2) Stop taking PPI/h2blockers drugs 3-4 days after you started this Natural treatment. Only anta acids like Gelucil / Digene are just sufficient to control acidic stomach. When stopping PPI/h2 blockers drugs you may have withdrawal symptom for around 2 days, but just don't worry. IDEA is to let stomach HEAL NATURALLY and not with help of drugs. Be away from NSAIDs painkillers as they are also trigger to acidity attack. In case of stomach anxieties instead of antacids you can also have Baking Soda (Eating Soda) 1-1/2 TSP dissolved in a glass of water after meal. Baking Soda and Baking powder are two different products. I preferred to use this method for relieving discomfort in stomach after meals.

3) Follow stomach exercise, this is to cure your functional dyspepsia. Your Stomach must be feeling stressed (Full/Tight) even after small meal then you definitely have functional dyspepsia. Search for "KAPALBHATI exercise on YouTube and do it for at least 200-300 times every morning EMPTY stomach (start with 100 and give 10 sec break for every 20 stomach steps). This stomach exercise will bring elasticity of your stomach back so you are not stressed when having large meals later. Those having High BP issues must do Kapalbhati stomach exercise only in moderation but several times a day. Do SIT UP Exercise also if you have a time. My dyspepsia was cured in a month after I strictly followed stomach exercises.

One link for KAPALBHATI exercise is here:

“    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GF_Kj6vFPd8     “

Similarly Sit up exercise:

“    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygmgGqzsSiU     “

I followed kapalbhati exercise for stomach, started with 100 every morning and made it to 300 later after seeing improvements.

4) Watch out for trigger food that caus

Gastro Paresis /Hyper Acidity / Delayed Stomach Emptying (DYSMOTILITY) / Acid Reflux/ Acidosis  RECOVERY PROGRAM

** Also refer to parent blog for more details on this program below **

http://sunild1204.wordpress.com/2011/04/09/acidic-stomachdyspepsiahyper-aciditystomach-problems/



Before you start this program

===========================

    First Thing you must do is to STOP ALL MEDICATION of Proton Pump Inhibitors / H2 Blockers Class of Drugs (e.g. NEXIUM, ranitidine, famotidine, omeprazole, RAZO etc) that you are used to for suppressing Acid. It is proven that these drugs although help suppress acids but as a side effect enhance DYSMOTILITY or slow stomach emptying making sure that you never get cured. You must also STOP all Pro kinetic / motility class of drugs (e.g. REGLAN, Domperidone, Erythromycin) as these have many side effects and are mostly ineffective in long run. FOR THIS PROGRAM TO SUCCEED YOU MUST BE OFF PPI/Pro Kinetic/Constipation Class of drugs. Please know that PPI class of drugs is used for SUPRESSING ACID While PRO KINETIC Drugs are used to push the digested food through stomach (Motility) for EVERY MEAL you take.
    All you need to do is to TRUST THIS PROGRAM (as most of what I write is already tested on me), and you will realize that what you were doing before was just a faulty line of treatment enforced upon you by the medical fraternity which has really not understood gastro paresis problem till now. All they do is to just enforce a generic program that included PPI/Motility class of drugs along with antacids to manage the issue and thereby make you all SLAVE to this faulty mechanism that only brings more problems later. So long, that you continue to suppress acids using PPI, delayed emptying will continue to persist. Read DISCUSSION section of article here: “   http://gut.bmj.com/content/42/2/243.full   “. Look for how to stop PPI section somewhere in parent blog.
    Instead what is required is, to follow a Leaky Gut Repair Protocol (Leaky Gut Prescription) that involves use of alkaline reserves (Seeds & Salts), TRIHPHALA capsule for Intestinal Cleanse & motility, L Glutamine for Intestinal repair and lightly cooked diet that is devoid of Meat , processed food, white Flour foods & Rich oily curries; during recovery period. Your food is going to be your medicine from now on. We will use right food(quickly prepared); Intestinal & Blood cleanse(Triphala, Raisin water,Wheat grass powder), build alkaline reserves along with healthy salts(Himalyan pink salt,Black salt,Sea salt(Impure crystals)), Using Mucilage food like  grounded flax seeds, fenugreek seeds, chia seeds with water to cure CONSTIPATION to get rid of this complex issue. We will also use L-Glutamine powder to help repair Intestinal Lining/Mucosa to resolve it from root.

This is a HOLISTIC program and so all steps must be taken together as mentioned in this blog to get better results. You will fail the program; if you continued to use PPI/Pro kinetic/constipation drugs when following this program. You can email me at sunild.***@****.



What you will need

==================

    SEEDS (Flax, Fenugreek, Alfalfa, Chia – these are all grounded and taken with water) as these contain Alkaline Reserves that your body needs to neutralize the acids that are released to digest the food and also for the acidic food that you consume. These also contain Mucilage that will help cultivate the right surface moisture and slippage on intestinal walls to protect stomach from acid secretion that takes place during digestion and will also help resolve CONSTIPATION Issues. Flax seeds:    “  http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/nut-and-seed-products/3163/2  “

    SALTS    ORGANIC Sea Salt(Impure crystals)/ Black salt /Rock salt /Celtic/Himalayan Pink salt. These healthy salts contain minerals that would help stimulate better digestion. These ORGANIC SALTS are capable of absorbing heat and very necessary as every meal causes digestive fires to go up. Our body stores alkaline reserves in the form of salts. These SALTS also provide much needed alkaline reserves. We will sprinkle these salts on every meal that we have. At least one table spoon of these salts to be consumed daily. http://www.familycarechirowc.com/index.cfm/articles/why-you-should-get-off-prescription-acid-reducing-drugs-asap/
    RAISINS   (Black), these are soaked in water overnight and when we drink this water; helps bring ALKALINITY & Iron to blood thereby helps us eating heavy and large amounts of food speeding up the digestion in long run. To increase absorption of Iron Rich food like raisins, cereals like Kellogg product 19/cheerios, wheat flour you must combine these with Vitamin C rich food like Oranges, citrus fruits etc.   http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/fruits-and-fruit-juices/2051/2       http://www.parentingscience.com/iron-rich-foods.html

    WHEAT GRASS Powder will help us Purify the blood. We shall look for more products that will help us purify the blood which is now contaminated and has become acidic. Goji Berry juice (Wolf Berries) have been found to very effective in purifying acidic blood within few days.  Liquid Chlorophyll is one more such product for blood purification.   “    http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/custom/900675/2  “
    TRIPHALA CAPSULES This is one of very important herb that we will use for DETOXICATION (Intestinal Cleanse) of stomach and also to help MOTILITY and cure sensitive stomach issue. I have used one from Himalaya brand. Reduce the dosage to 2 capsules after around 8 weeks and then to 1 after another 4-6 weeks.

        http://nutritionreview.org/2013/04/triphala/
        http://www.nowfoods.com/Triphala-500mg-120-Tablets.htm

    L- Glutamine Powder for GUT REPAIR. This powder 1 teaspoon daily  (5 days a week, 2 Hrs before or 2 hrs after meal or early morning) is known to help repair gut lining/ mucosa thereby resolving the problem from root. Studies have found that L-glut amine supports the regeneration and repair of cells lining the intestinal wall. I have myself used 2 products, Pure L Glutamine powder and British Nutrition’s Glutamine recovery formula. Reduce the dosage if you get Sore throat or other such symptoms as listed in side effects link below. Use a alternate day or Mon-Fri consumption to avoid any side effects. Just watch out for any side effects (sore throat etc) but if you stick to lowest dose of  1 Tea spoon a day 5 days a week you shall be fine. I took this for around 4 weeks, stopped for a week and restarted. This is to be done for 3-4 months. Have Large doses of around 3 tea spoon at least one day in a week to get better results.

        http://www.jackkruse.com/the-leaky-gut-prescription/
        http://www.livestrong.com/article/70525-side-effects-lglutamine-supplement/

    For any stomach anxiety after meals; Antacids like Baking soda (NOT baking powder) dissolved in water, Chilled milk (No Sugar), a TRIPHALA capsule after meal or OTC antacids can be used. Remember that Acid neutralizing is always preferred than acid suppressions. Mostly I used TRIPHALA capsule for any type of anxiety after meals.

    LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST, a soft/Lightly prepared (Quickly prepared) diet(80% alkaline 20% Acidic mostly vegan) till recovery. We must increase alkaline reserves by having vegetable diet avoiding meat at least during recovery periods. Food at this stage can never be strongly cooked/processed/baked/fried (slow digestion) or acidic (strong Protein, sugar, meat). All type of MEAT to be had in Boiled/Grilled/Steamed form only. The journey from soft/Lightly prepared(Quickly prepared) diet To strong diet is a slow one, but will ensure final cure. Also Triphala is very important herb in this program.
    Sample One Day Alkaline Diet Plan:

    http://softfoodsdigest.com

WHAT NOT TO DO

===================

Strictly AVOID NSAID Painkillers, skipping meals,Tea Coffee & Alcohol during this period. Tea coffee can be had once you have cured your sensitive stomach by taking TRIPHALA capsule for 7-10 days. If you feel anxiety after any food have one TRIPHALA capsule or cold milk (No Sugar) or coconut water or baking soda dissolved in water. Avoid Green chilies, instead use peppercorn or cayenne pepper (red chilies powder). Strictly avoid canned food, White flour, baked food and hot milk during this time. That means you must avoid soft drinks, Sugar/fried/baked (Biscuits, cake, pastries etc)/red meat/flour (bread, flat bread/chapatti etc)/all type of processed food (canned food, chips, tomato sauce, chocolates etc), at all costs till the stomach is ready to take them back till recovery take place. No meat for next 2-3 months. Strictly avoid Red meat and deep fried oily greasy food and rich curries.



FIRST THING IN MORNING

=============================

    1-2 Spoons for each of grounded flax seed powder, CHIA Seeds grounded,  Fenugreek seeds grounded Marshmallow root powder (Althaea officinalis) along with Some Water. This is done to ensure healthy mucus growth and support slippery stomach lining to protect from acid that is secreted during digestion along with building alkaline reserves. This shall also help resolve constipation issues. I do this twice daily.
    Add Wheat grass powder & alfalfa seeds grounded to Luke warm water added with pinch (1/3 tea spoon) of one or combination of Celtic Sea salt/Himalayan Pink salt/Black Salt /Rock Salt. Optionally add a pinch of Black pepper and turmeric powder & Lemon juice. This is done to purify blood & restore alkalinity of body fluids.
     Also L-Glutamine powder dissolved in water or shake (1 tea spoons ) to help gut lining / Mucosa repair. I took this for around 4 weeks, stopped for a week and restarted. This is to be done for 3-4 months.
    For acidosis cure and to bring alkalinity to body fluids also drink raisins soaked water (raisins soaked in water for 8-10 hours) and eat raisins twice daily. You may also prepare CHIA seeds soaked in water for 5-10 minutes and drink that along with CHIA seeds. To increase absorption of Iron Rich food like raisins, cereals like Kellogg product 19/cheerios, wheat flour you must combine these with Vitamin C rich food like Oranges, citrus fruits etc. I do this twice daily.
    If you have functional dyspepsia (feeling of full stomach even with small meals) then you must perform KAPALBHATI or sit up Stomach exercises starting with 100 (give 10 second break for every 20 KAPALBHATI stomach steps) and gradually increasing it to 300-400 at one go. Those with Blood Pressure (BP) issues must do this exercise moderately (around 50 at a time but repeat it 3-4 times in a day.). This exercise shall restore elasticity of your stomach back and will remove any stress caused by large meals later.
         KAPALBHATI Exercise: “  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GF_Kj6vFPd8 “
        Similarly sit up exercise:“  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygmgGqzsSiU   “

FOOD for ALL 3 MEALS

    Boiled food is the lightest form of food to stomach, you can add lemon juice, black pepper, Black salts on top of it. Have soft diet or lightly prepared(Quickly prepared) vegan food (7-8 minutes of cooking, less or no oil). We shall avoid  acid buildup (avoid sugar,Meat) and Food buildup (Avoid white flour,fried & processed foods). If oil is required for preparation then never use more than 2 tea spoon of oil. Spices are welcome addition too. Always use Rice based food as they are very light to stomach during recovery stage. I have used Muesli with cold/chilled MILK (No sugar) and also Banana alongside. Alkaline foods   like dried raisins, Figs, cucumbers, dates, banana, papaya, water melon, Mango, Beet, Broccoli can be had any time in day or along with all meals. You will avoid Liquid curries, meat & fried food during recovery stages. Also the food that is prepared should not be curried and should not contain anything that is fried; also it should be dried food preparation (no liquid curries). If the food is with liquid curries just pick up dry content out of it leaving the curry for others. Meal like Curd + Rice and Rice + Spinach is very soothing to stomach and shall be reserved for nights mostly. Normally, an 80% Vegetarian and 20% Non vegetarian meal or sticking to MEAT in Grilled/Boiled/ Steamed form only would ensure life without acidity. We shall avoid meat during recovery stage. DO NOT FORGET to sprinkle one or combination of all of salts listed above on every meal you eat to help avoid Acid indigestion.
    One TRIPHALA Capsules after every meal. We will do this for around 6-8 weeks or more depending upon recovery results.
    Also L-GLUTAMINE powder (2 hrs before or 2 hrs after meal) dissolved in water or shake (1 tea spoons daily) to help gut lining / Mucosa repair. I took this for around 4 weeks.

WHEN YOU WANT TO THROW ALL PRECAUTIONS TO WIND FOR THAT ONE DAY IN A WEEK

==================================================================

Okay so you decided to forget about all precautions. No worries, there is a way but you must do it only occasionally. Just pick up a very good quality digestive Multi enzyme tablet e.g. DIGEPLEX T and TRIPHALA CAPSULE. Now just before meal have one Digestive Enzyme tablet and after you have finished your food have 1 or 2 TRIPHALA CAPSULE. How it works is that, Digestive enzymes help break food thereby less acids are produced and TRIPHALA is an excellent Intestinal cleanse and motility herb, thereby makes sure that food and digestive juices are not hold up for long in stomach. Always keep TRIPHALA handy for occasions where you had food that starts to give you anxiety. Have one TRIPHALA capsule for all such occasions which give you anxiety after meal.

POST RECOVERY

===================

    Trigger food for acidity means combination of meat + food that delay digestion or take long to digest. If you know what type of food delay’s digestion you will know how to eat it and how much gap is required. White flour, baked, Rich oily curries, Fried food cause delay in digestion and that is why they must never be combined with meat to avoid acidosis in future. Meat is safe when had in isolation or with rice in grilled/steamed/boiled form. One food that has always caused me issues is oily rich curries when combined with meat. I can eat everything but strictly avoid rich oily curries with meat in it. I have not found any issue when I have curries with vegetable food inside. As of now this is the only one combination that I avoid. As acidity prone individuals (thin stomach/mucosal lining is not able to protect us from excess acids produced for digestion) we can never afford to have food that would hold acids released for digestion for long time in stomach. That means all meats shall be ate in isolation and not combined with white flour foods and should never be fried. If you are going to eat food that would take long to digest e.g. white flour food, fried food then you must never eat meat along with these. Having a compromised stomach lining (thinned) the acids released for meat (protein) digestion would cause flare ups and would stress the stomach thereby promoting the delayed emptying.
    Always remember that we are acidity prone individuals and so if you ever had food (Trigger food for acidity means combination of meat + food that delay digestion or take long to digest) that may cause delay in digestion especially when meat was consumed, have 1-2 TRIPHALA capsule immediately after meal to avoid return of acidosis.

    I normally prepare myself for these occasions (when eating trigger food) by having one digestive enzyme tablet (e.g. DIGEPLEX T) just before meal followed by TRIPHALA capsule for fast motility, if I ever wanted to indulge in this type of food occasionally. How it works is that, Digestive enzymes help break food thereby less acids are produced and TRIPHALA is an excellent Intestinal cleanse and motility herb, thereby makes sure that food and digestive juices are not hold up for long in stomach. WE MUST continue to build alkaline reserves for the cure to become permanent.
     This is a HOLISTIC program and so all steps must be taken together as mentioned in this blog to get better results. You will fail the program; if you continued to use PPI/Pro kinetic/constipation drugs when following this program. You can email me at sunild.***@****.

Delayed onset muscle soreness , Muscle Pull
=================================
While doing stretching exercise using weights, one day I used around 10 LBS of more weight and did some more exercise than usual.  Now just after 1-2 days my shoulder became stiff and in next 2 days it became so worse that I was not even able to raise my hand preventing me from doing regular activities. I went to doctor and did some x-rays and they found nothing except muscle swells.  They wrote me some pills and that is it.
Next I was back to Internet search to find what I could do to speed up recovery.
After some research I found some steps that worked for me help recover this problem. I followed following steps:
1) Rest for around 2 weeks and stopped all forms of exercise.
2) Next, the problem does not go away if you just do not do anything. That means, I found out some stretching exercises (My physiotherapist helped me identify some good stretching exercise that helped bring down pain). These Stretches should not cause pain. You should only go to the point of a pull, not to the point of pains    http://*****************/question/index?qid=20090312061053AAhJK0u   .

3) Also you can sooth your stressed muscles by applying Hot water Pad and then Cold water (Using ice) therapy.
4) Next you must not do any other exercise EXCEPT the one that caused you the issue, and that also you must do it in moderation to help recover the muscles that got stressed while doing that particular exercise. What this means is that, the exercise that caused the issue is the one that will help you recover but you must do that same exercise in moderation (50% and with less weights) to start with.
5) I also found that you must apply pressure therapy to release lactic acid buildup because of stressful exercise you did, and until that lactic acid buildup in muscle is released the pain will not go away. Just apply pressure with your hands and fingers on the spot where it pains a lot and do extensive presses to release lactic acid buildup. That surely helps remove pain.
6) I have searched found some URL’s that will help you understand the issue and help find your own plan to recover:

You are having trouble with the muscles in your arm. When the muscles get tight they will give off the pain you are having and the only way I know of to get rid of the pain completely is to release the muscles. That being said it is hard to give you more information for you cover a lot of area with the upper arm. With that said here is what I can help you with. Find the muscle that seems to be giving you the pain. Press hard on one end of it or trap it against the bone if you have to but press hard on it and hold the pressure there for 30 seconds. During this time try to be resting your arm without any pressure on the muscle. After the 30 seconds very slowly extend your arm so that the muscle you have been holding gets stretched out all the way. Then release the pressure but hold your arm in the extended position for another 30 seconds. If you got the right muscle the pain should be gone. If it was a big one you may have gotten only part of the pain out, then you have to move to a new spot for the rest and redo it

Trigger Point Treatments
====================
Firm digital pressure causes hypoxia and reactive hyperemia that clears the trigger point. Reconditioning the muscle, after the pain is reduced, makes latent trigger points less prone to reactivate

self-treat trigger points
If trigger points are pressed too short a time, they may activate or remain active; if pressed too long or hard, they may be irritated or the muscle may be bruised, resulting in pain in the area treated. This bruising may last for a 1–3 days after treatment, and may feel like, but is not similar to, delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), the pain felt days after overexerting muscles.

Myofascial Trigger Point therapists may use myotherapy and stretching techniques that invoke reciprocal inhibition within the musculoskeletal system. Practitioners use elbows, feet or various tools to direct pressure directly upon the trigger point, to save their hands.

Trigger points are defined as a muscle knot or muscle pain disorder. These muscle knots are very tender to push on however the pain they cause is often felt as referred pain, this pain is usually felt at an adjacent joint or as a “phantom ache” along a limb.
The red region indicates the likely pain pattern location you will experience from these muscles. The green circles are the trigger point location. This is where you need to massage in order to relieve the pain.
