Thank you for your response, AtlantaMom.

Oct 5, 2018 · Getting Off of Omeprazole in Digestive Health

Hi There:

I wanted to update y'all to my success in weaning off of Omeprazole. After several unsuccessful attempts, I have now been able to transition to Ranitidine (usually) twice a day. I am a coffee drinker and had to go to Cold Brew (homemade) for my transitions' success. During my change over, I realized I could intake a2 milk (much to my delight and surprise) without any stomach upset. Apparently, I am not lactose intolerant but intolerant of the a1 milk protein. Smaller meals helps and following my (mental) list of acceptable foods with minimal spices. I do live in New Mexico so green chile is a staple and I can indulge but not overdue it.

Praise be! Fingers crossed for continuing success.

Jul 20, 2018 · EDS/Distended Stomach/C-Diff... Any advise on what to do next? in Digestive Health

I would not wait, pain is an indication something is very wrong, and plan on driving her, upon discharge, to Mayo's ER. Pain is an unbearable emergency.

Peace and blessings to you both. My prayers are with you.

I have not; I will be setting up an appt. with my Gastro. doc (likely) at years end as I am dealing with another health matter within our family (unrelated to this). Thanks for your posting, DrRoberts.

Thank you for responding, dand48, hopeful33250, Theresa, and destinanna. I still suffer from GERD from a hiatal hernia. I have taken Oemprazole a little over two years and want to get off of the medication because of the associated health issues of poor absorption of key nutrients (D, B12, and calcium are the ones I am familiar with).

My provider, a competent gentleman, has said "hmmmm." I am an RN so am used to doing the research and my own investigation. I have not found evidenced based information / articles on weaning off of Omeprazole. I have heard it can be done and tried to do so but was met with resistance and poor results when I attempted to do so. I switched over to Zantac and the first three days were reasonable and after that it was very uncomfortable).

The celery sounds hopeful and am trying to figure out the mechanism of action for its success. I have tried cider vinegar and it was met with severe cramping.

I am seeking successful scenario's by the valued participants on this board and will do a fair amount of research / experimentation on my own of what works for me. I take responsibility for my nutrition. I am also Lactose intolerant and have a few other sensitivities / intolerances in digestion.I thank you in advance for any additional feedback.

Hi tech mom:

I too tried tai chi with poor success; coordination and difficulty with the movement in relationship to a healing back injury was my downfall. I do my best in swimming regularly and that is very helpful. Qigong has ben recommended and there are underwater exercises that are possible and powerful. Qigong (and I am not an expert) has multiple categories and there are some that are much less finite in movement yet are powerful work for the mind / body.
