Recently I have come to learn about a condition called gastroparesis. I learned of this after a friend posted on social media about being diagnosed with this condition and the struggles she faces with living with this.
What is gastroparesis?
For those of you who do not know what gastroparesis is, this is a rare condition that affects the stomach muscles. As a result, the stomach cannot empty itself of food in a normal fashion.
Gastroparesis can be a very difficult problem to treat.
One thing that is know about this condition is that it can be caused by damage to the vagus nerve. This nerve regulates the digestive system. So, a damaged vagus nerve prevents the muscles in the stomach and intestine from functioning. Because of that food is prevented from moving through the digestive system properly.
Is there any hope for someone with gastroparesis?
I was able to talk with Dr. Shawn Talbott when I was in California at my company’s mental wellness symposium about this particular condition and if there was anything I could offer that may help with this situation.
What I learned from that discussion is that the Digestive product is the most targeted to this situation. You don’t know what causes gastroparesis but the entire digestion system is almost sluggish with this issue. It is not doing what it is supposed to do.
For that reason, a motility enhancer like what is in MentaBiotics™ and in Digestive would be really good for this. If possible it is actually best to do the FundaMentals Pack™ and add Digestive product. But if budget is a concern then at the very least begin with MentaBiotics™ and Digestive.
It truly is a difficult diagnosis because we do not know what causes it. It could be a nerve thing. It could be an actual musculature thing with the tissue of the the intestinal lining. It could be a microbiome disruption. Or it could even be just plain old inflammation.
By doing the full FundaMentals Pack and Digestive you would be addressing all of those things at the same time. Where people don’t get a lot of benefits is where they go with one product and if it’s not that issue you are not hitting it so then they see no results.
I felt it was important to share this discussion so people know there may be hope out there for them! Again, I cannot offer medical advice or say this is a cure but what if there was hope? What if you have even a fraction of help with relief of the issues you face daily? Wouldn’t you want to give it a try?
I know I would.
