Salt

Dec 03, 2012 - 6 comments

I had a little too much salt yesterday with my dinner normally I'm more careful of that but I wasn't wearing my glasses for 1 and I ran out of my special butter ( no salt ) so I used my mother's and I'm paying for it at least I haven't started to throw up if I do I know I'm going to end up in the ER I just hope it doesn't happen at work. I don't want the kids to see me like that I don't want ANYONE to see me like that.

I  do not feel good at all my stomach is still giving me grief it's so bad that I wish that I had thrown up so I could go to the ER the pain is barely tolerable the rotten egg burping isn’t too bad but sometimes it tastes like excrement completely disgusting.  I'm still hoping to start throwing up just to get some relief from this suffering.

Have you thought of baking soda and water? 1teaspoon to 1/4 cup of water, drink it all, it helps the tummy feel better.

I have tried that but I just couldn't drink the stuff I am going to see if I can try it again. I took a probiotic capsule from the health food store and that helped a lot but I would still like to try the baking soda mixture again it's less expensive.

I am trying every natural thing I have read about, I find it all depends on if its actually acid burning or an alkaline burn hich feels the same. I take 40mls Aloe vera juice 1st thing when I get up on empty tummy and wait 30mins to eat.I also take 2 probiotics with my breakfast(1 daily if no acid) I used to take gaviscon before I ate and chew sugarless gum after I ate, yesterday I tried the apple cider vinegar before lunch and dinner and still do the chewing gum straight after and avoid drinking anything for 20min give tummy chance to work on the food. Before bed I chew 2 gaviscon double strength tablets and wait 15mins before laying down.I also for past 3 weeks up until yesterday took 1 Pariet which really isnt working. The vinegar thing seemed to really help, just be sure to drink a half glass water soon as you take it to rinse mouth and throat. Last week I had horrid burning and got the vinegar and took it whilst making lunch and was amazed how the burning stopped instantly, now, bicarb soda is opposite, it is alkaline and the test they say is take a teaspoon in water of bicarb and u should burp soon after if its acid, if its an alkaline problem u wont burp for a long while if at all
O ther thing I am yet to buy is licorice root tablets, 2 before meals supposed to help and black berry powder after meals is good.Hope this helps

the vinegar mix to start is 1 to 2 teaspoons in about 2 or 3 tablespoons water and add a drop of pure honey if you really need it,swallow whole lot then as I said drink a half glass or few mouthfuls of water and swish mouth out either eat your meal straight away or wait a few mins to 20mins then eat.It needs to be apple cider vinegar not just any type,also try eating a green apple when its burning, oh and 1 other thing Ive found helps is unsweetened pineapple juice, sounds weird cause its an acidic juice but it works and it settles nausea quickly too. let me know how u go

Those are good ideas to try I can't use the vinegar tho, my stomach would have a fit because of my gastritis. Unfortunately because of the gastritis I have a lot of food triggers and I've had to change the way I eat and the foods I eat. For instance when I have anything with spaghetti sauce I'll add a little more sugar and smart balance margarine to it but, basically I try to avoid acidic foods. It was hard to avoid foods with spaghetti sauce so I had to find a way I could have it without getting sick. So far I like to think I'm doing better I haven't ended up in the ER since March if I'm not mistaken ( not really sure about that ). I have to admit I do screw up with food like eating too much salt another thing I try to avoid because of my HBP, but that is a hard one since it’s in EVERYTHING, and even if I try to get the low sodium foods I’ve noticed that they’re not a lot of them around. I did find a 35% lower sodium gravy I tried it yesterday and I liked it. Some of the low sodium foods I like others I just can’t stand BUT I am trying.
