How to Knock Out Digestive Problems Once and For All

  • Food sensitivities
     Stop eating known offending foods and drinks  completely for just three months then try to reintroduce. Especially Gluten Intolerance - wheat or oat bran.

  • Low digestive enzymes and/or low stomach acid

    Take the enzymes for a week or two and see if  symptoms go away. If so, then take the enzymes on an on-going basis. Don’t  take them all the time — only when the stomach problems arise. 
          To determine if your digestive problem is due to too little stomach acid. The next time you have  
          heartburn, gas, or bloating, simply take a teaspoonful of lemon juice or apple cider vinegar. If your
          problem clears up, it means you don’t have enough stomach acid.
         Take Betaine hydrochloride (most products will have Betaine HCl on the label) to normalize your
         stomach acid levels

         Usually both enzymes and betain will contain in same tablet.

  • Infection- H. pylori
    First, eliminate any stress you can. Reduce — or eliminate — your intake of coffee, soft drinks, and alcohol. Also avoid NSAIDs.
    Next, take a combination of cabbage juice and cayenne pepper three times a day on an empty stomach for 7-10 days.
    Take a supplement called mastic gum eaither chewing or wafer 1,000 to 2,000 mg of mastic gum a day. It heals the stomach lining and, at the same time, gives immediate relief of the symptoms. Amazingly, it can even reverse the damage done by NSAIDs.
