And my experience with stomach paraylsis and constipation was frightening but it seems all over. When my health declined and gut issues blew up I had severe gastroparesis and doc wanted to put me on meds whose #1 side effect was it could stop your heart. I hesitated because I didn’t have gastroparesis my whole life it had just started. So I decided to be strict on diet and see over time what happened. My naturopath said it could take 6months to a year or longer to heal and she was right. Whether I had SIBO, parasites, candida, histamine gluten intolerance, mast cell activation issues, other bad guys in my gut and lack of good guys, it didn’t all matter I was sick from multiple factors and had to be very basic. Getting the right supplements and food in place was a tricky game but seems one year later my gut is running fast (no gastoparesis bloating belching or constipation). eating was strict on Elaine Gotschalls SCD diet (she was scientist who came out with diet in 1950’s to heal her sick daughter). Before i found this I kept getting sick again and it was clear even ‘what looked to be okay foods for me’ like rice and potato were indeed beyond my ability to digest. Elaine was right. Once I gave up the hard to digest starch molecules my gut worked better. What seemed to help me the most was eating 24hr homemade SCD yogurt. My gut got much stronger eating this daily. The next piece of the puzzle was mayo figuring out I had issues with mast cells in my gut and I learned about histamine intolerance. Now I follow my five hand rule: no sugar, no wheat, no preservatives, limited specific dairy items, foods low in histamine and I am finally thriving.
