Thank you for your post……very helpful. Which probiotic did your Naturopath suggest?
I don’t eat uncooked veggies , once in a while some celery ( not much ). I stay away from salads although I like them very much . I usually eat mango or a good apple if it’s fruit or cherrys if in season . I do like blueberries and strawberries 🍓 but don’t eat many of those . I’m low low dairy ( no milk of any kind for 7 years), even tried lactose free. I do not have Celiac they said , not do I have SIBO ( was tested a few times ), I have tried a Gluten free diet but no change . I just tried Keto but not for full 28 days , no change. I take a good prebiotic ( and have tried probiotics) along with everything else holistic they make for the gut and intestines. We eat lean meat and a lot of chicken breast and sometimes Salmon or other fish . I’ve done many elimination diets over the years . The amount of gas that my own body produces in one day/ and at night is what most people produce in a month !! It’s non stop 🛑 churning , and the deep constant belching is horrendous.
7 years of this . 5 Gastro Dr’s diff RX ‘s , sessions of hypnotherapy ( that didn’t work). Visaral Massage , Myan Massage , you name it . I’ve tried it . My diagnosis is always same , Gastritis, Esphogitis , Clas B GERD , small hiatal hernia , some IBS . It breaks my sleep as I belch over 3000 x a day and night . Comes out both ways too , mostly belching .
No caffeine since I was a teen ( I’ve had PVC flair ups all my life ), no sweets , I eat small and healthy. Just like my stomach cannot tolerate anything .
Still waiting on Mayo Clinic to call me back ( Jacksonville). I’m still on waitlist. Had last colonoscopy and endoscopy last June and many , many tests prior at Duke in NC . I live on Ultra Pepto. I’m now on antidepressant and have anxiety meds because of all this .
I’m 59 .. this has changed me and not for the better . Thanks for sharing your story and input . I appreciate it so much , Rosemary 😌
