The tests will include a blood test for anaemia, stool test for HP and referral for endoscopy for a direct view. You’re more likely to have them if you’re over 50, or have developed persistent indigestion recently that is getting worse.
Today had upper G I, he said everything was great all things were running smooth and no problems. I just came off a 7 day cleanse from reading Medical Medium by Anthony William. I am going to become more proactive in my own health, like for a functional Doctor and I am going to go with the honey and cold water and the apple after I eat. I’m going to watch the gluten and dairy also.
Check if you have acid reflux
When the LES opens because of the pressure and even a microscopic amount of acid touches the inside of your esophagus it can produce large amounts of pain and burning. This is because the esophagus is not protected like the stomach from high acid levels. The modern media and drug marketing campaigns have brainwashed us to believe that acid reflux, or GERD, is due to high stomach acid levels. This is nothing more than propaganda from people who make money when you believe their message.
I believe everything that is said on this website as well. Chronic low stomach acid seems to be the culprit of a lot of autoimmune diseases. Robert an alternative model for you to consider which I came across recently and sounds convincing. Mostly people who suffer from low stomach acid do not have blood that is slightly acidic but rather slightly alkaline.
My symptoms are bloating at times, and lots of gas at night and in particular first thing in the morning. The bloating is better if I take enough HCL.
The procedure involves wrapping the upper part of the stomach around the LES to strengthen it, prevent acid reflux, and repair a hiatal hernia. Surgeons perform this procedure through either an open incision in the abdomen or chest or with a lighted tube inserted through a tiny incision in the abdomen. PPIs and H2 blockers reduce how much acid your stomach secretes, which can help prevent and reduce heartburn symptoms. Antacids neutralize stomach acid.
whenever I ate greasy foods I would have bad gas to the point my stomach hurts and constant burping and nausea. I had gone to the doctor recently for my stomach issue and prescribed to me omeprazole 20mg for acid reflux. I thought it was working with abdominal cramping because I was also having that along with the other symptoms but instead I ended up having really bad constipation causing my stomach to hurt much worst. The doctor had told me to take it for a month but I stopped because of the constipation being bad taking it after two days.
The liquids will dilute the stomach acid even more. In 15 years of herbal practice, this simple remedy has worked remarkably well. BTW, the vinegar works well as a probiotic. For the arthritis, your body is probaly acid.
Normally the acid stays in the stomach. When the acid backs up into the esophagus, it burns and causes the uncomfortable sensation known as heartburn (the cause of heartburn is gastroesophageal reflux disease). One common cause of acid reflux disease is a stomach abnormality called a hiatal hernia. This occurs when the upper part of the stomach and LES move above the diaphragm, a muscle that separates your stomach from your chest.
An occasional bout of heartburn usually means that the foods the person ate produced too much acid in the stomach. If a persons suffers from heartburn often, or every day, it can be a symptom of a more serious condition called gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD. Frequent or severe heartburn may limit a person’s daily activities and lead to further complications. That’s because the brain finds it hard to distinguish whether pain is coming from the heart or from the stomach and oesophagus.
