I was diagnosed with Gastroparesis which is not related to diabetes and it is not clear what causes it. I also was offered that horrible drug and declined it. I tried many fermented foods (that helped a little) and always questioned the doctors if I have a low acidity in my stomach. To my surprise they couldn’t test it and actually were prescribing me medication to lower the stomach acid. Since I was feeling worse after prilosec and similar drugs, I started to do different home tests to see if my stomach acid is insufficient. Turns out – it is. Some people are just born with it, and some people acquire this disease as we age. Then I found this mineral water Mineral Water Essentuki No. 17. Make sure to take Essentuki No. 17 and not No. 4. I drink a few sips of it 30-40 minutes before food intake. So I go through less than 0.5 L bottle per day. I can not believe how much my symptoms improved. Not bloated anymore. Still have some air pushing out (belching) but pain is also mostly gone. One thing – I lost 15 pounds when I started this water and I was in normal weight. Probably because the food started to move faster. I am so happy I finally found what helps me after 2+ years of suffering. Try it. You can find it online. Good Luck!
