Tinnitus RECOVERY Guidelines:

Tinnitus RECOVERY Guidelines: (Last Updated 04-June- 2018)

** It is advised to use your discretion and your best mind/judgement when following guidelines below as used by me to manage or cure my tinnitus problem, where in just 48 hours I found the peace **

Tinnitus the voice beast

===========================

  • Sri Krishna (God) says:

IF YOU LOOK AT SORROWS, YOU WILL ALWAYS BE SAD,

IF YOU LOOK AT HAPPINESS, YOU WILL BE ALWAYS HAPPY,

Because,

IT IS YOUR ATTENTION TO A SITUATION THAT MAKES IT PROMINENT

ATTENTION TO A SITUATION IS THE KEY TO EVERYTHING

  • Tinnitus, the perception of a phantom sound, is a common correlate of damage to the auditory periphery, either to receptor cells or to neurons of the spiral ganglion. REF:https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3402636/
  • Tinnitus as I understood is the symptom just like when you get hurt, that area releases pain signals, in this case since somewhere ear nerve damage has occurred due to any reason and when the intensity of any type of sound affects it, it starts sending audio signals in the form of mixed voice. So the voice is actually the symptom of receptor cells going crazy over intensity of sound. As soon as you calm this receptor periphery the voice stops.
  • So why do we have amplified sound in ear, looks like PEOPLE WHO HAVE ANXIETY ISSUES SOMEHOW APMPLIFY THE TINNITUS SOUND as THE MIND HAS NOW TIED IT UP WITH OUR ANXIETY AND STRESS OR DEPRESSION feedback which makes this issue difficult to go away since constant buzzing and sound creates more anxiety and attention and this is what it needs to survive.
  • Anxiety, depression, panic are its residence and we have to deny this residence to tinnitus by NOT going in to ‘thinking mode’ or by keeping ourselves awake and alert through chanting mantra always.
  • So where lies the solution? If you take anxiety and attention away from this sound this sound will not survive and die its natural death. There are 2 part solution to this issue: One, where actual damage inside ear receptors have occurred and Second, where the brain is signalling the audio in an amplified and constant sound inside ear, and this is the one area that we will get rid of in this blog.

 

The Problem as I analysed it:

I will describe it as what happened in my case:

8-10 weeks earlier, I went through terrible cold cough issues and during those doctor visit days the ENT doctor pointed out that I had wax inside ear which he suggested must be washed away. Before ear wax removal I was prescribed waxolve ear drop to soften up the wax. During ear drop usage, I noticed that my inside ear wall had a collapsing effect as if they were trying to fall down. It looks like my ear walves have gone through spasm and cracking sound during waxolve ear drop usage and after wax removal using syringe method where they blow water into your ear.

Later, I found out that WAXOLVE has TURPENTINE oil and one of side effect of it is that turpentine oil can cause spasms of the airways, particularly in people with asthma and whooping cough, and during those days I was dealing with severe cold. I do not understand that of all the healthy oils available, why they use turpentine oil in ear drops?

So, The wax removal by SYRINGE method was smooth but afterwards I noticed a huge increase in my hearing in left ear. There was kind of a vacuum in my left ear and the sound was more but kind of distorted. After 2 weeks the symptoms of tinnitus started with mild sound but then I found it becoming constant and loud. The chronic stage came only due to anxiety reaction towards the constant buzzing sound since I am the person will anxiety issues and it looks like the sound which was mild and ad-hoc before, suddenly turned in to a constant and monster after my panic reaction to the sound which took away my breath and made me rush to the doctors again where after audiometry test it was pointed out that there was nerve damage and also later when I heard songs through earphones it made things worse and had caused tinnitus. The first thing they did was to put me under steroids tablets which had no effect.

So what exactly happened?

====================

I went for EAR WASH, where doctor used syringe water method to irrigate waxAfter the procedure I found my hearing capabilities had increased (HYPERACUSIS) on account of vacuum created by ear wax removal.

The sound in ear that was subconscious before, but now became prominent, and subsequent use of earphones caused TINNITUS which was a mild sound in beginning.

The ANXIETY and PANIC reaction to this sound caused it to AMPLIFY and cause more anxiety and panic and distress CREATING A LOOP which was producing a sound in ear produced EXPLICITLY due to anxiety CONNECTION to the sound.

Also I found that TINNITUS was in control when there was NO SOUND around, meaning we must avoid sound during recovery period.

Similarly TINNITUS was also triggered by Pain Medications and few other medicines which made it continuous and strenuous, so guys avoid all medication that send tinnitus into frenzy and continuous.
TINNITUS MANAGEMENT (Solution)

==============================

This is what I have been following which has brought my tinnitus to around 5% to 10% only few minutes in a day.

In nutshell since we have sensitive ear, our ear when exposed to any CONTINUOUS VOICE/SOUND be it mild or high will intensify the Tinnitus. So even FAN shall be at pace where it is not making any sound. One shall avoid  direct contact with any sound source, for example do not sit directly under a fan or a A/C unit.

Observing silence is the need of hour, be it from outside source like TV , music etc or our own voice, we must talk only when needed that too in soft and slow voice.

I follow these steps and that has made a lot of difference to managing my tinnitus:–>

1) Observe silence meaning talk slow and soft and only when necessary.
2) Avoid all electronic sounds , shun TV , audio, music for next few months.
3) Do not let MIX voice happen as this is a TRIGGER to continuous sound, meaning do NOT TALK under running FAN, or when TV is ON, or if some one is talking let that person finish and then you talk.
In summary avoid MIX VOICE to happen as our ear is not able to process 2 continuous sounds  at a time and goes in to frenzy.
4) NEXT very important: Roll-UP cotton swab using palm of your both hands, (around 2 inch after roll up), dip any one side of  this cotton in SESAME OIL (10-12 drops),and insert this cotton into affected ear or both ears.

Let this cotton remain 24/7 inside ear and you may change it every 12 hours if you like. It is very important for affected ear to be protected from all type of noises.

5) Alcohol also helps me calm down my brain and I notice no sounds of tinnitus for next 24 hours. This works for me but every individual is different.

In my view this issue of Tinnitus is best managed through feeding silence to affected ear.  Initially when I was using masker through white noise from TV or youtube the sound was continuous  and later after some analysis I realized that It was the sound that was affecting the ear so I  stopped listening to music, TV and also changed my own talking tone to soft and slow and that  has made a lot of difference to managing this issue.

Pranayam exercises for Ear are explained below but are optional:

1)

Bhramari Pranayama

https://youtu.be/ZHNfMU6qLow

 

Also:

Those who have frequent cold cough issues can get relief by following this pranayama:

  1. SIT in a relaxed upright position. Take a small napkin for use.
  2. Do a regular breathing and let inhale exhale happen.
  3. Anytime at next EXHALE, slowly HOLD or PINCH your NOSE with index and thumb fingers, keeping your mouth shut
  4. HOLD TILL MAXIMUM till the time you cannot hold anymore.
  5. YOU MUST Hold till STRONG URGE TO BREATH.
  6. Release your nose, and do your regular breathing in relaxed manners.
  7. Wait for at least 30-45 seconds before repeating above steps 2-3 times again

MAY GOD BLESS US ALL….AMEN

 

MORE NOTES:

Hyperacusis is defined as a reduced tolerance to normal environmental sounds and everyday sounds become unbearably or painfully loud. In short, hyperacusis refers to the increased sensitivity to sound. People with hyperacusis feel as though the volume control in their brain is stuck on HIGH! The alteration in the central processing of sound often associates with Hyperacusis. REF: https://www.sinuswars.com/tinnitus/hyperacusis.asp

People suffering from hyperacusis have been somehow exposed to loud noises. Your ears loose most of their ability to deal with quick shifts in sound capacity (loudness). This results in a sudden intolerance to sound that is not ‘really’ noisy. Normal sounds suddenly become irritating and painful to tolerate

Hyperacusis (or hyperacousis) is a debilitating hearing disorder characterized by an increased sensitivity to certain frequencies and volume ranges of sound (a collapsed tolerance to usual environmental sound).

Incorrect ear wax removal

ENT specialists are the only people who can best help remove excess ear wax. Most people damage their ear drums while incorrectly attempting to remove excess wax at home. General practitioners and nurses that are not skilled in this field may also not perform the procedure of ear wax removal.

The shock and noise of the ear wax removal if not correctly done, is a major cause of hyperacusis and noise

There is a good news also but as per article:REF: https://www.sinuswars.com/tinnitus/hyperacusis.asp

How long does Hyperacusis last for?

Since hyperacusis is a chronic disorder, it usually lasts approximately 8 – 12 weeks depending on the severity of the attack. However, even if severe, hyperacusis does not last longer than 24 weeks. If in any case symptoms show up after this period, other illnesses might have developed.

HOW TO CURE COLD / STREP THROAT NATURALLY

HOW TO CURE COLD / STREP THROAT NATURALLY

==============================================

** The method described below must be exercised by you only using your correct judgement or if you feel that what is written may work for you. Please exercise your own judgement when following the method or steps below. Some principals of AYURVEDA & Breathing exercises are used. This is not a sure shot method so you may talk to your doctor to get better idea. I just describe below what I did when severe form of cold struck on me**

When the COLD / STREP Throat struck

==============================

It starts with a runny nose which goes on for several hours or 1-2 days at least draining all your salts from body making you feel feverish (without fever) , tired and fatigued. The side effect could be a strep throat where you feel as if your throat is like a coarse paper.

 

The Ingredients you need:

===================

Cayenne pepper (Red chillies powder) gargle for throat 3-4 times a day, ELECTROLYTE POWDER (It works by replacing electrolytes and carbohydrates in the body to prevent dehydration), PRANAYAM technique to open up breathing path and Sinuses without use of inhalers, Warm water one glass every two hours occasionally added/mix with a pinch (0.5 gram) of turmeric powder and good old Vicks vaporab.

 

Steps to manage the cold / strep throat

============================

  1. We will let the cold run its course which may take 1-2 days or more. During this time:
  2. Gargle the throat with Cayenne pepper added water 3-4 times a day to prevent strep throat.
  3. Drink Warm water every 1-2 hours (sometimes add a pinch of turmeric powder to water)
  4. Use vicks vaporub at night for inside nostrils.
  5. If not able to breathe because of closing of sinuses or breathing path, use BREATHING EXERCISE several times in a day to open up sinuses without use of inhalers.

Just take a small INHALE from one nostril (alternate between left and right nostril) while closing the other nostril and pinch close your nostril (using index finger and thumb) and hold breathe for at least 20-30 seconds (Or to the point where you feel like taking another breathe) and then exhale slowly from other nostril for each step. FLEX YOUR NOSTRIL DURING PINCH HOLD OF nostrils using the air pressure that is built during hold. If you have a FORCEFUL exhale after hold, then you have hold for good time. Repeat this till you feel that sinuses have opened up.

  1. After the cold/runny nose has stopped, the feeling of being fatigued or tiredness will continue as your body fluids with electrolytes loss has weakened your immune system. During this time you may decide to use one Electrolyte powder drink daily for 2-3 days or till you feel good. I felt good just after 2 such electrolyte drinks. Please look for side effects and dosage for electrolyte yourself.

The other way is to drink Coconut water daily till the fatigue is gone.

  1. Apart from this, I used over the counter dry cough syrups and herbal remedies like hot soups and warm milk added with a pinch of turmeric powder and coconut water or NEEM/TULSI capsules alongside to carry on smoothly during the cold attack.
  2. Also it helps to shift you breathing pattern to belly rather than from chest or nose, meaning we use belly to breathe IN. During this process during Breathing IN the stomach INFLATES and during exhale STOMACH collapses. You would notice calm breathing where Nose is idle and hence no sound of breathing comes. This technique also prevents hyperventilation which is prime cause of COLD as free particles generated on account of hyperventilation (rapid breathing) must be removed through nose in form of cold symptoms.

DIAPHRAGMATIC BREATHING (breathing from belly) to prevent hyperventilation (rapid breathing)

=============================================

  • Sit comfortably in an upright chair. When you are first learning, it may be helpful to lie down on the floor or a bed, which makes it easier for your abdomen to expand and contract with each breath.
  • Rest one hand on chest and other hand lightly on your abdomen/belly, about one inch above your navel. You must experience belly rising during correct process.
  • Inhale gently, expanding your belly as you do so. You should feel your belly expanding beneath your hand during each INHALE. If chest is expanding during inhale then you are doing it wrong. Consciously feel your belly inflating during each inhale.
  • Exhale softly, contracting/collapsing your belly as you do so, feeling it contract. During exhale you can see your stomach flattening or going in.
  • Do above steps at least 5 times every day just before you go to sleep to shift the breathing to belly. You will notice this brings in SOUNDLESS breathing as instead of NOSE your belly is used for each INHALE.

RECOVERY STEPS- ASTHMA / FREQUENT Cold & Cough

                                                                            Last updated: 13-Jun-2017.

RECOVERY STEPS- ASTHMA / FREQUENT Cold & Cough

=====================================================

If you are one of those who experienced frequent cold cough issues then you have reached the right blog. Normal people face cold cough issues 2-3 times a year but some of us face these many times a year and sometimes once every month or every few weeks. It was almost impossible to sit under running fan and drink anything cold. Frequent cold cough causes necessary body salts to be consumed and hence you always feel fatigues after each episode of cold cough specially if have frequent episodes of these. Hence consumption of coconut water or electrolytes after each episode may help us recover fast from fatigue caused by frequent cold coughs.

With these breathing exercises you would have got rid of ANXIETY / Asthma / Frequent cold cough and hearing and several other hidden problems.

These breathing exercises also cured my Spasmodic torticollis which is an extremely painful chronic neurological movement disorder causing the neck to involuntarily turn to the left, right, upwards, and/or downwards

We will use following mechanism to bring this problem of frequent cold cough /Asthma to end:-

  • We may have weak lungs and diaphragm which are inactive or weak or stiff.
  • We have wrongly shifted the breathing to nose during sleeping pattern, sleeping on stomach may cause breathing to shift to nose area causing shallow breathing.
  • Strengthen LUNGS with help of CO2 build exercise that dilate the breathing path. Learn to shift your built co2 during breathing exercises to belly area (diaphragm).
  • Strengthen and activate DIAPHRAGM with help of specific exercises to make sure that during walking and sleeping we are using belly/diaphragm to breathe and avoid breathing through nose. We have to avoid shallow breathing that is done through nose.
  • Shallow breathing is nothing but our diaphragm is weak , stiff, lazy and is not able to pull air with force to inside causing the air to accumulate which in turn through the action of osmosis gets converted to humidity and thus causes frequent colds.
  • Learning to breathe in specific manner as described in exercise (2). Bend your torso a little backward while walking or doing all breathing exercises (this lets accumulated tiredness [CO2] pass on to stomach rather than the chest area). You must learn to pass on the built up tiredness {Co2} to the stomach area.

The mechanism to frequent cold cough cure is simple and can be followed easily. 1) Clear or Open up breathing path with Co2 build exercised which are immediately followed by O2 build exercises that fill lungs with fresh O2 and also making sure NEVER TO INHALE through MOUTH throughout the day or in sleep. 2) Exercise that strengthens Diaphragm and the upper jaw and sensitive nostrils through forceful deep inhale and forceful exhales 8-12 times in one go.

In shallow breathing you see your chest area inflating and deflating with each breath or inhale exhale. This shallow breathing is what causes free particles in breathing path thereby giving bacteria and viruses much needed humid space to reside in humid environment thus created inside breathing path.

Ideally your stomach /diaphragm inflate up with each inhale and goes flat with each exhale. This is the breathing that we have to achieve to get rid of cold cough issues. If your stomach is flat while breathing means you may have weak diaphragm and must be resolved through right breathing exercises.

The two pronged approach of opening up Nose Airways/breathing path (through increasing Co2 tolerance) and DIAPHRAGM STRENGTHENING along with shifting breathing to diaphragm just before sleep is used to get rid of the problemYOU MUST reach a minimum breathe hold (exercise 1) of 45-60 seconds when done in sitting position or at least 35-45 steps when done in walking style from point A to Point B.

In AYURVEDA they believe that any chronic disease with “FOOD AS MEDICINE” along with PRANAYAM or BREATHING EXERCISES can cure most of diseases and somehow with my own personal experience I have come to believe that it is true most of time. I have resolved my cold cough issues following these exercises and after around 8-10 months of research on myself when performing these breathing exercises.

 

As always, I suggest that one must use necessary precautions and follow their own judgement when doing or performing some exercises mentioned in this blog. I have only mentioned exercises that I have practically used myself on day to day basis to get rid of chronic issues that I faced.

=====================================================  

 

BEFORE YOU START BREATHING EXERCISE PLEASE CONSIDER FOLLOWING POINTS:

===================================================

  • Fast Inhale & Fast Exhale type of breathing will only make you light headed and will cause low blood pressure making you dizzy. This type of exercise will lower your CO2 in blood and thus will cause less O2 to be brought to blood and to cells.
  • No matter how you look at it, the more oxygen you have in your body during and after exercise, the better you will perform and the faster you will recover!
  • CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) is the mechanism we use to DIALTE and open up breathing path. Inhale from mouth shall be avoided.
  •  We build CO2 by holding/closing the nostril and we try to increase our CO2 tolerance by holding it as much possible (Minimum 45-60 seconds hold while sitting or at least 35-45 walking steps while holding the breath)
  • If you have cardiovascular or heart related issues then you must perform breathing exercises moderately and gradually increase the hold count.
  • During all breathing exercises; gently FLEX your nose during pinch hold with help of air pressure that is created during hold
  • YOU MUST NEVER sleep on stomach as doing so may interfere with diaphragm breathing resulting in free particle creation and cold cough issues when you wake up.
  • All forceful deep Inhales must be done using technique described for shifting breathe to stomach area i.e. place one hand on chest , other on stomach to feel that breathing is being done using diaphragm / belly and you see your stomach INFLATING with each deep inhale making sure that your chest is still during breathing.
  • During cold, First thing in morning I would gargle with Cayenne pepper added WATER. Add 3-4 gram of cayenne pepper (Red chillies powder) to half glass of water and use this water for gargle to avoid strep throat during cold infection.

 

EXERCISE (1) (STARTING FROM EXHALE, Build Co2) for Asthma and Lungs Strengthening

=======================================================

  1. Select a location either garden or near window where fresh air is available.
  2. Stand in a relaxed position, upright position. Take a small napkin for use.
  3. NOW EXHALE FROM NOSE to remove all air from lungs. Bend your torso a bit backward to let it easy for stomach to fill the air accumulated.
  4. HOLD or PINCH your NOSE and start BRISK WAKING from point A to point B and Point B to Point A. Count number of times you covered each point. Feel the stomach filling up with hold air (CO2), and do not concentrate on nose.
  5. Bend your torso a little backward while walking or doing all breathing exercises (this lets accumulated tiredness [CO2] pass on to stomach rather than the chest area). You must learn to pass on the built up tiredness {Co2} to the stomach area.
  6. Ideal hold time is minimum 45-60 seconds when done in sitting position and at least 35-45 Steps when done in walking from point A to Point B and reverse.
  7. During all breathing exercises; gently FLEX your nostrils during pinch hold with help of air pressure that is created during hold
  8. YOU MUST Hold till STRONG URGE TO BREATH. Also during breathe hold concentrate on stomach and not nostrils as you must feel your stomach filling up with hold air (co2) to get the max benefits. Release your nose only when you feel that your stomach can not take the pressure any more. Use your stomach power to decide the nose release. During the hold process feel the pressure building inside stomach and forget the nose pressure. Your stomach pressure (max) shall decide the release of nose.
  9. Release your nose, and do your breathing in a pattern as described in exercise (2) below. Do this exercise (2) for at least 8-12 times for each exercise(1) step
  10. For every step of exercise (1) you will perform minimum 8-12 steps of exercise (2) when releasing nostril after a pinch hold.

 

 

 

EXERCISE (2) ACTIVATE / STENGTHEN DIAPHRAGM and also to strengthen upper jaw area and sensitive nostrils, exercise to get rid of frequent cold cough issues that you see first thing in morning

==============================================

To Activate and strengthen the diaphragm use following steps:

  • We will always breathe using this technique.
  • Stand up straight Or, Lie on the floor or bed face up with knees slightly bent
  • Or just sit down with torso in upright position. Close your mouth and prepare it to take deep inhale. You will notice your mouth taking a monkey like upper and lower jaws shape.
  • Bend your torso a little backward while walking or doing all breathing exercises.
  • Place your one hand lightly on your stomach and other hand on your chest.
  • Take a forceful Deep inhale through NOSE using power of nose as if you are trying to reach the inhaled air to stomach area making sure stomach is inflated to maximum (explicitly) after each such powerful inhale. You shall hear a coarse noise with each inhale since you are doing a very forceful deep inhale taking in as much air possible in a single inhale.
  • At the point when the stomach is complete inflated to maximum, hold for 1-2 seconds before next forceful exhale with a snap.
  • Let the stomach fall naturally when breathing out by relaxing the diaphragm.
  • The above steps to be done every 3-4 hours and every time before sleep (4-5 times maximum) and immediately after you wake up and also before you walk or even after every meal during initial period. This will help activate diaphragm breathing which is inactivated somehow as of now.
  • You must do minimum of 8-12 such deep inhale exhales during breathing exercises (1) in morning. This will strengthen your upper jaw area and sensitive nostrils.
  • Use power of your Nose and belly / Diaphragm to inhale air through nose for each step.
  • Do exercise (2) in isolation for 4-5 (max) repeats just before sleep, before or after every meal to shift the breathing to diaphragm. You must explicitly inflate the stomach to maximum during each inhale.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Exercise (2) in ISOLATION (Not with exercise [1]) steps to be done just before and after sleep

====================

  • Sleep on your back in your bed.
  • Place your one hand lightly on your stomach and other hand on your chest.
  • Take a forceful Deep inhale through NOSE using power of nose as if you are trying to reach the inhaled air to stomach area making sure stomach is inflated to maximum (inflate the stomach explicitly if required during each inhale) after each such powerful inhale. You shall hear a coarse noise with each inhale since you are doing a very forceful deep inhale taking in as much air possible in a single inhale.
  • At the point when the stomach is complete inflated to maximum, hold for 1-2 seconds before next forceful exhale with a snap.
  • Let the stomach fall naturally when breathing out by relaxing the diaphragm.
  • Do this maximum 4-5 times only. If you do more you will lose your sleep because of excess intake of oxygen.
  • Do Exercise (2) in ISOLATION just before sleep and after you wake up on every day basis. This will shift your breathing to diaphragm during sleep which is the real reason for free particle’s build-up.

 

 

Okay just follow these steps (1-3) to recover from Asthma Cold Cough issues

==========================================================

During cold infection First thing in morning gargle with Cayenne pepper added water. Add 3-4 gram of cayenne pepper (Red chillies powder) to half glass of water and use this water for gargle.

—————————————————————————————————

  1. 1-2 times, Perform exercise (1) FOR EACH NOSTRIL (2; starting from exhale), hold till strong urge to breathe again). When exhaling, PINCH-HOLD ONE NOSTRIL and EXHALE FROM OTHER NOSTRIL FOR EACH STEP. During exhale, do Inhale exhales from only one nostril keeping other nostril closed and reverse this for each nostril. Perform at least 2 times for each nostril
  1. 3-4 times, perform exercise (1) along with exercise (2) as mentioned in exercise (1)
  2. Also just before sleep (sleep on your back position) you must use exercise (2) in isolation [not with exercise (1)] (4-5 times maximum) to activate diaphragmDuring this time Use power of your Nose & belly / Diaphragm to inhale as much air through nose for each step and making sure that chest is still and only belly is inflating to maximum. You must do this every day every time just before sleep and after you wake up (4-5 times max). You must explicitly inflate the stomach to maximum during each inhale.

—————————————————————————————————–

  1. YOU MUST NEVER sleep on stomach (initial period of 2-3 months during exercises) as doing so may interfere with diaphragm breathing resulting in free particle creation and cold cough issues when you wake up.
  2. Bend your torso a bit backward to let it easy for stomach to fill the air accumulated.
  3. Bend your torso a little backward while walking or doing all breathing exercises (this lets accumulated tiredness [CO2] pass on to stomach rather than the chest area). You must learn to pass on the built up tiredness {Co2} to the stomach area.
  4. All Inhales must be done using technique described for shifting breathe to stomach area i.e. place one hand on chest , other on stomach to feel that breathing is being done using diaphragm / belly and you see your stomach INFLATING to maximum with each inhale making sure that your chest is still during breathing.
  5.  Also during breathe hold concentrate on stomach and not nostrils as you must feel your stomach filling up with hold air (co2) to get the max benefits. Release your nose only when you feel that your stomach can not take the pressure any more. Use your stomach power to decide the nose release. During the hold process feel the pressure building inside stomach and forget the nose pressure. Your stomach pressure (max) shall decide the release of nose.
  6. Just before sleep (sleep on your back position) you must do exercise (2) in isolation not more than 4-5 (maximum) to shift breathing to diaphragm.

MY RECENT BRUSH WITH ACIDOSIS

** You may exercise your own judgement in following some of cure below **

MY RECENT BRUSH WITH ACIDOSIS

—————————————————-

Yes, as I have mentioned before that we are acidity prone Individuals hence food that require lots of acid release (Red meat, it must be banned for life for acidity prone persons) must be avoided. I had avoided it (Red meat) for more than2 years but recently gave in to temptation and started eating 2-3 portions whenever I had chance. Eventually I had a lot of Red meat one day (7-8 pieces) and that did it. I was back to same feeling of burning pain in abdomen and it became reality that DEVIL had caught me again and I must now pay the price. But since I had the program ready I instead caught the devil by head and came out of it in just flat 2 weeks, which was the fastest recovery time knowing fully well that it took months last 2 times to recover. But I am a man of 100% discipline so that always gets me out of trickiest situations that I face in life.

What Happened

===============

I knew that I had done wrong by eating too much red meat so kept a watch. By 5-6 hours after meal burning pain in stomach started which was a sign that the sensitive area (leaky gut area) in my stomach has opened up again and is now signalling a coming ACIDOSIS.

The symptoms were clear, first thing it did was to consume electrolytes (alkaline reserves) to maintain PH level, which made me feel fatigued and drowsy and also the resulting stress slowed the stomach down signalling I cannot eat heavy foods. The stomach that is slowed will cause acid release as soon as it senses that the food is NOT MOVING and if you had no meat and just carbohydrates and fats as meal, entire load of acids will need to neutralized which will consume ELECTROLYTES from your body making you feel weak and fatigued.

Remember, acids are needed to digest PROTEIN but if your food did not contain PROTEIN (Meat) the acid release (which would not have happened if stomach was NOT SLOWED down) will cause ACID INDIGESTION meaning Acids have got released in absence of protein (meat) thus to neutralize so much acids (which would have otherwise be consumed by meat in normal situations) alkaline reserves (electrolytes) are consumed on daily basis making you fatigued and weak all along.

So if you think why NOT HAVE meat with all meals? Well this is a Paradox situation for you. Your Leaky stomach will not survive if acid is released frequently to digest the protein and hence you must avoid eating meat. And to avoid acid release during other meal you must EAT MEAL that is LIGHT, VEGETARIAN and is cooked on slow flame for less than 8 minutes or just eat boiled meal so that it is light to stomach and can move easily.

Then why do people with NO LEAKY GUT also suffer with high acidity? This is because of ACID REBOUND effect of PPI (ACID BLOCKER medicine) that you took that has created a lot of ACID WASTE in your body system thus slowing down stomach. Once stomach slows down it causes ACID RELEASE after meal because it assumes that since FOOD is NOT MOVING acid must be released to destroy the food.

In fact when ACIDOSIS struck; the first one week the meal shall be just boiled without even a TRACE of oil, with lots of CAYENNE pepper to heal the burned part of stomach. Also L GLUTAMINE powder along with MULTIPLE AMINO ACIDS powder to heal the gut which would take at least 7-10 days.

Steps I took to immediate remedy

==========================

  1. 2 TSP of baking soda dissolved in water immediately after sensing burning pain in stomach. Also drink COLD MILK WITHOUT SUGAR to sooth stomach.
  2. Next if you are NAUSEATED and cannot eat food despite hunger, HAVE CAROM SEED’s boiled water. This shall take away NAUSEA soon.
  3. A quick dosage of ELECTROLYTE to cure fatigue and drowsiness.
  4. Stopped all intake of tea coffee or anything that will stimulate stomach.
  5. Immediately switched to BOILED VEGAN FOOD (boiled RICE/plain yogurt MOSTLY avoiding all kinds of flour).This Veg food must be prepared on low flame and shall not contain even a trace of cooking oil for first one week. Avoid curried food here.
  6. Take steps to cleanse the ACID WASTE by having daily twice Wheat grass powder in water , Black Raisins soaked water (Soaked for 8-10 hours) , 1 TSP Cayenne pepper water to heal the stomach of all ACID WASTE.
  7. All snacking MUST BE ALKALINE only beet, carrot, cucumber etc.
  8. L GLUTAMINE Pure powder and also MULTIPLE AMINO ACIDS powder in water TWICE A DAY to enable fast healing of stomach along with cayenne pepper with water. Stop L Glutamine immediately if it causes uneasy stomach. Instead Have Cabbage juice/bottled gourd (lauki) juice every day for next 3-4 weeks. Cabbage juice / Bottled gourd juice is a must for ulcer cure.
  9. Sprinkle ORGANIC SALTS like Black salt/ Pink Himalayan salts and Red Chillies powder on all meals for faster healing and drain acid waste.
  10. TRIPHLA (HIMALAYA brand is my choice) AFTER EVERY MEAL to cleanse stomach of acid waste and support MOTILITY which is now affected as stomach is stressed after a lots of burning due to acids. The TRIPHLA is initially hard on stomach and you may feel that it is causing acidity but that is not the case.
  11. After 7-10 days you would have started on regular Vegetarian meals slowly increasing STRONG food contents. You must gradually add strong content in food.
  12. Food can now be cooked with 1-2 TSP oil if required after 1st week of eating light food.
  13. Strictly avoid SUGAR, MEAT, PROCESSED FOOD, and FRIED FOOD. All other strong food like white flour must be gradually added to meal. Fried food shall be tried one BITE at a time till your stomach is able to accept it without any stress.
  14. MEAT to be avoided for next 8-12 weeks. RED MEAT MUST BE BANNED FOR LIFE. I have learnt that sticking to moderate eating of RED MEAT in real life IS NOT POSSIBLE and you do not want to take chance of ACIDOSIS RETURNING again.
  15. For me after 3’rd time I have learnt my lesson and have banned the RED MEAT FOR LIFE.

FAQ/QUERIES-ACIDOSIS/ACID REFLUX / GASTRO PARESIS / Leaky Gut

Following texts are copied from education series that I ran on some of websites to help understand the natural cure method mechanism and issues with widely used line of treatments using PPI/pro kinetic/constipation drug on ACIDOSIS/ACID REFLUX / GASTRO PARESIS / Leaky Gut

=================================================================

*****

The Story of PPI, Gastro Gastroenterologist and GP /Acid Reflux/Acidosis Patients

The PPI have been proven to cause and start hosts of issues has been proved by examples live and logical. When PPI started to Jam /stop the stomach causing Slow Stomach and Gastro Paresis, pharmaceuticals came out with another miracle (Sic!) drug known as Pro Kinetics which would try to correct the errors or hara-kiri committed by PPI, i.e. they would help motility which has been slowed by PPI. And as Stomach emptying and motility slows down, Colon also slowed down. So now they (“gastroenterologist”) came out with a GENERIC PROGRAM which Included PPI/Pro Kinetics and host of constipation drugs to deal with Acid reflux/colon issues. And When after Long use Of PPI/Pro Kinetics/constipation drugs started to further slow down stomach and Colon they came out with G/J Tube, Feeding tubes, Gastric pacemakers. When pushed further they removed your gall Bladders, Cut your stomachs & Colons into half. When they (“gastroenterologists”) did not knew how to satisfy your queries they came out with further excuses like celiac disease, Gluten Intolerance, Vagus nerve damage etc. But did all of above measures have solved your problems? You still continue to suffer with nausea, nutrition deficiencies etc. Your PPI doses have increased to highest levels and you are struggling to make that one bowel movement which should be just a simple task otherwise.

But where did the problem start?? I have time again proved with documented research, with logical and theoretical example and also live cases like you and me, and said umpteen numbers of times that PPI are the one causing you not to get cured. But being citizen of first world , and just  because you guys have INSURANCE available, you continue to  ignore that THEY (gastroenterologist’s) IN FACT have already declared the Gastro Paresis as  IDIOPATHIC i.e. cause not known and the disease is progressive, although this is only TRUE in allopathic form of line of treatment and NOT when  you go natural. It is your Insurance that is proving to be BANE instead of BOON. What if you did not have Insurance? Without medical insurance medical fraternity would just leave your colon and stomach as it is and would not suggest you any such options as they know that they cannot make any money out of you, and Also without insurance you would save yourself from endless tests that you subjects yourself to just because you have that INSURANCE with you and you want to just make use of it. Also without insurance, you would then start to look for home remedies which are not happening at present. In my posts I have said that women are the one most suffering as they have frequent interactions with doctors and somewhere they are prescribed PPI and the story begins to roll further.. As MEN we most of time try to ignore going to doctors and would visit only when there is a serious injury or there are some problems because of age.

Already the medical fraternities have confused you by introducing to you hosts of reasons that could have caused the GP/Acid reflux (In fact they do not have any clue guys! Understand this and you will be saved), but what amazes me is that as patients instead of blaming the drugs and doctors, you come out with this “OH, WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT AND THAT IS WHY SOME DRUGS work for SOME and some do not and that is why our so called Gastroenterologist’s are finding it difficult to manage this issue for us “. Do not several forms of tooth pastes work for all of us?! Come on guys, is this a STOCKHOLM SYNDROME I am seeing where the VICTIM continues to protect the TORMENTOR in the hope that by doing so the TORMENTOR would be less cruel to them.

Nowadays, I am seeing patients as young as 20 years coming to your forum with the same issues you are facing, and the only reasons they will not get cured or see their life get ruined is that because you guys continue to take time to understand the cure mechanism that I have listed. All of you are just continuing to re invent the wheel when all facts have been explained and it is clearly known that PPI/PRO KInetics/Constipation Line of treatment has never got anyone cured in the HISTORY of this line of treatment. So why not caution all new comers and let them go onto other path where there is a hope.

Look; once you have been Identified as Acid reflux /Gastro Paresis/ Acidosis with symptoms like Burning pain in abdomen after every meal, heart burns after meals , nausea, dizziness  after every meal & Severe weight loss, I would say just hope on to this mechanism in post below and save yourself from endless tests and Get ON with life after 8-12 weeks. It is now time for action and do not waste your time debating. Someone has already figured out the cure mechanism for you and you just need to go ahead and try it.

Here are my posts that I already started. Just get on to this post and start the process of getting cured.

GASTRO PARESIS and subsequent acid buildup will manifest following conditions :–>>

Constipation (1), sensitive stomach (2) (where intake of spicy food especially liquid curries, tea coffee causes further anxiety), (3)Functional dyspepsia (feeling of fullness even with small meals). (4) Also you cannot eat heavy meals at this stage akin to anemia. (5) Depletion of alkaline reserves causes further indigestion and result in delayed digestion & Acidosis. (6)  Acid buildup causes thinning of stomach lining/ mucosa which is symptom of leaky gut and causes undigested food and acid released for digestion to go directly into blood thus causing contamination of blood and subsequent acidosis.

 

Delayed emptying of stomach causes acid buildup resulting in nausea, dizziness, pain in abdomen, severe weight loss and indigestion. Also it causes Acid reflux in some people  if the valve at end of esophagus (neck) does not close properly.

THERE are 3 line of treatment that I came across and I will discuss all of these:-

The one and most practiced which is also a faulty line of treatment is generic program that included PPI class of drugs (e.g. NEXIUM, ranitidine, famotidine, omeprazole, RAZO etc)/Motility class of drugs (e.g. REGLAN, Domperidone, Erythromycin) along with antacids to manage the issue. Please know that PPI class of drugs is used for SUPPRESSING ACID While PRO KINETIC Drugs are used to push the digested food through stomach (Motility) for EVERY MEAL you take. So long, that you continue to suppress acids using PPI, delayed emptying will continue to persist. Read DISCUSSION section of article here: “   http://gut.bmj.com/content/42/2/243.full   “

Extract from From above url/link:

Discussion
this study has shown that therapeutic doses of ranitidine, famotidine, and omeprazole, which suppress gastric acid secretion, affect both gastric motility and gastric emptying. All significantly delayed gastric emptying despite an increase in postprandial antral contractility as assessed using antral manometry, electrogastrography, and dynamic antral scintigraphy.

from above extract, When it is clearly established that PPI class of drugs cause and enhance further delayed emptying (Dysmotility) then why are these prescribed??

This line of treatment does not cure the problem but you just manage it on every day basis just like diabetes. As per Medical fraternity GASTRO PARESIS is non curable so they come out with line of treatment that eventually takes you to either G  Tube or Feeding tube or some type of surgeries as in long run because of side effects of PPI/Kinetic drugs the stomach slows down to such an extent that nothing can help it move further.

Being former gastro paresis and cured patient I know, that mechanism used by medical fraternity is faulty. I myself from 86 KG went on to become skinny and skeletal losing around 18 kgs because of gastro paresis and subsequent acid buildup causing acidosis; am now cured and back to being healthy and strong again just because I chose to follow different path which I will discuss later.

Thanks for reading

** By the way I am NOT a doctor but a former patient of gastro paresis who is just sharing his cure or possible better management of this

** Complex issue without any medicines but using only HERBS/ Right Food/ Supplements.

How did we become Acidity prone / delayed stomach emptying people?à

It looks like one of the thing came across common was that we have skipped the meals a lot.
When Living in San Francisco I used to have Buffett during lunch and would eat a lot and then skip night meals thinking that since I ate so much during lunch I did not need to eat at nights. When finding the PG accommodation I visited one house and informed Chinese lady how I was eating as I wanted to tell her that her kitchen has not much use to me.  She was surprised that I was skipping meal and cautioned me that it might cause ulcer if i did it for long. I laughed it away and look what happened. My stomach lining is now compromised (thinned, leaky gut) and is causing flare-ups when I eat food that required lots of acids to be released. There in fact is nothing wrong with my digestion but this weak lining is causing all the flare ups and subsequent slow moving digestion.
When you have a thin stomach lining or a leaky gut, the acid released for digestion may go directly in blood along with undigested food and that contaminates the blood and subsequently slows down the digestion.
Second reason for delayed emptying as per my understanding is when you diet consists of mostly acidic food and less or no alkaline foods.  When you eat a meal that is overly acidic, your body must neutralize the acid and regulate the alkalinity of the blood. Alkaline reserves (calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, zinc) are required to balance the ph level of your body fluid and blood. So when these reserves are depleted and you are eating acidic food, the food can not neutralized at speed that is required and so causes delay in digestion. It then starts to borrow alkaline reserves from your muscles and bones and hence the weight loss in some people.
Therefore one of thing we will do to recover fast is to Increase our alkaline reserves. Alkaline reserves are found plenty in seeds & unrefined salts like Black salts & Rock Salts, Celtic salts.
Just have a look at alkaline reserves (MINERALS) in these links:
Flax seeds:   http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/nut-and-seed-products/3163/2
Black/Rock salts: http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/spices-and-herbs/216/2

What Food Cause Delay in emptying and How to avoid Acid Holdup/Buildup in stomach
================================================================
Just as an earth’s OZONE layer protects us from Strong Sun Rays, Our stomach lining / Mucosa protects us from acid released for digestion. Now just imagine that the OZONE layer is fading away. What would you do in that case? There are two options, one is to completely avoid going out in Sun Light and go out in nights only OR otherwise try to go only in early morning when Sun Light is just minimal and not that strong. Once you have understood that what food cause delay in digestion what food because acid release you will be able to control flare ups caused my meals. The Journey from Lightly prepared food to strong food is slow but is going to ensure final cure in most cases as in mine.

Protein requires a highly acidic environment for digestion, while carbohydrates and fats require a more alkaline environment. The Acids are released for Protein Digestion (Meat) and Also when there is Undigested food remaining in stomach. Similarly White flour food (bread, flat bread etc), baked food ((Biscuits, cake, pastries etc)) , Fried food, processed food (chips, chocolates, Ice cream etc), fatty foods ARE the foods that take long to digest and thus delay digestion.

So now if you had a meat in grilled/ boiled / steamed form, there is not much issue as proteins are the most easily digestible than carbohydrates & fats. But If you consume meat that is now FRIED, it takes long time to digest it as fried food take long to digest and also there is a hold up of this type of food in stomach. The problem here is that it also holds up acid that was released to digest the meat (protein) and thus the prolonged acid buildup starts to affect the stomach if we have thin stomach/mucosa lining. These result in acids going into blood thus contaminating it. Same happens when we combine meat with white flour products as the white flour takes long time to digest. That is why you must never combine meat/strong protein like Red meat with white flour food, and also since acids are released to digest meat it is always better to have meat in boiled/grilled/steamed form to avoid acidosis and thus subsequent gastro paresis or delayed emptying of stomach and related symptoms. It is okay to have meat with rice foods instead. That is why we must have White flour, baked, fried foods only occasionally and with at least a day’s gap. Also since we are trying to increase alkaline reserves we must follow 80% alkaline & 20% Acidic food habits for the long time to come. Conversely depletion of alkaline reserves (calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, zinc) causes digestive acids not to be neutralized properly thus hurting the intestinal lining and increased/prolonged acid buildup increases the PH causing delayed emptying of stomach. Once delayed emptying has started it goes in loop and thus makes it difficult to recover unless you have understood the mechanism to deal with it as mentioned in this blog.

Let us see if I am able to explain why you are stuck and where you are stuck. And WHY GP cannot be cured, is a FALSE statement.

Yes it cannot be cured in Allopathic method of cure probably but if you cannot reach your home by taking route XYZ then you must look for some other route to reach home. You never say to yourself that reaching your home is not possible just become someone told you so.

Following example (ACDOSIS CASE) tells you how and when GP was created and also why and where you are stuck. Also let us ignore some small error in explanation but you must see the larger picture of how you can come out of your situation. An ostrich like attitude where you refuse to see the reality will not help anyone, and you will be stuck getting INSPIRATION on drugs that you do not need and drugs that do not cure.

We travel from Step 1 to Step 9 in this example below:–>> You shall read it as; Step1 causes step2 and step2 causes step3 and so on…
(REASON X causes Acidosis; Acidosis causes Blood PH lowering……)
1. REASON-X OR one example: Leaky Gut/Thinning of mucosa or intestinal lining (Caused by: uncontrolled use of NSAID painkiller drugs, Frequent skipping meals, Eating Acid forming food lifestyle, surgeries etc.)
2. Acidosis (Undigested food & acid go into blood causing blood contamination)
3. Blood PH goes down. (Acidic blood state, causes depletion of alkaline reserves as blood must be restored to proper pH levels, borrows alkaline reserves from Bones/Muscles etc causing weight loss)
=>>4. Start of Gastro paresis or Delayed emptying of stomach (GP itself Manifests more issues like:-Sensitive stomach, Constipation, acid buildup , acid reflux in some people, cannot eat strong/heavy food ,depletion of alkaline reserves, Having acid forming meal cause more stomach anxieties and flare-ups)
5.Doctors now prescribe PPI (PPI drugs suppress acid but as a side effect cause further Delayed emptying or Gastro Paresis as per research already provided in my previous posts, and also thousands of live people like you stuck and not getting any results prove this)
6. One Expects to be cured since you are on prescriptions but that never happens. What is the point in having prescription drugs if they are not going to cure you!
7. Loop Back to Step 4 as now Instead of curing GP, PPI’s are now causing further delayed emptying (more GP!!) i.e. step 4.
8. So now you travel from step 4 to 5 and back to step 2 and you never ever come out. This is a LOOP.
9. If Cure is STEP 6 you never reach it as use of PPI drugs cause you to go backward to step 4.
10. To exit or break the LOOP you must first remove step 5. Similarly Pro-kinetic drugs have their own side effects. They work for some time for some people and for others they do not work at all. Hence the need to avoid this class of drug too. We do not want any drugs that interfere with logical functioning of stomach.

So now as per my experience (and I have done it guys) if you can take care of step 2 & Step 3 GASTRO PARESIS would be resolved, RIGHT? It is the Root cause in Step 1 that will take some more time to resolve or even if did not, and then also by taking care of Step2 & Step 3 Gastro Paresis can be avoided. So now who says GP cannot be CURED ??!!!

So now your new step 5 onwards can be as follows (as Per my research, and guys it is all tested on me)
=====================================================================
1) Studies have found that L-glut amine supports the regeneration and repair of cells lining the intestinal wall. I have used L glut amine for Intestinal repairs (leaky Gut). I have myself used 2 products, Pure L Glutamine powder and British Nutrition’s Glutamine recovery formula. Trust me guys it has made a major difference. I got 3 benefits in just one month. Found that I my neck crackling sound was gone (arthritis of neck), Found that frequent bouts of cold was gone and off course the GUT has become more powerful and I have become more stronger.
2) Stop further acidosis (step 2) by having more of alkaline forming food and lightly/quickly prepared food and ignoring acid forming food during recovery period.
3) Restoring alkalinity of Blood by following blood purification (e.g. Wheat-grass powder and also drinking Black raisin soaked water)
4) Control acid indigestion (Lower PH of chyme or digested food, causes delayed emptying as food must be neutralized before passed to next stage of stomach) by using one or combination of ORGANIC Sea Salts, Rock salt, black Salt, Celtic salt and Himalayan pink salts which ever you can get hold of. These ORGANIC SALTS are capable of absorbing heat and very necessary as every meal causes digestive fires to go up. I normally would sprinkle these salts with every meal. Trust me Acid Indigestion will feel like a myth if you did this with every meal.
5) The one MOST IMPORTANT HERB we use is TRIPHALA capsules. This herb has many benefits and recovery without this one herb may not be possible. This herb will help cleanse Intestines, Blood purification, Motility etc. This herb will also help cure sensitive stomach which is result of acute acid buildup causing stomach to become soggy and sensitive.
6) CONSTIPATION is one major issue which can be resolved by having mucilage food like Grounded Flax seeds, Fenugreek seeds, Chia seeds and Clarified butter (Ghee) On every day basis.
7) Also there is a method to stop PPI class of drugs which is mentioned in my blog. You must neutralize acids as sudden stop of PPI will cause acid rebound effect for 3-4 days but as long as you know how to neutralize acids using antacids or other methods you will be fine and on way to recovery in few days. Some people who tried stopping PPI without knowing the method got panicked as acid rebound effect of sudden stop of these drugs will cause more anxieties if you did not take care of neutralizing acids on more frequent basis. Just read the section on how to stop PPI in my blog and you will know.
8) All that is needed is to follow journey from lightly cooked (Quickly prepared) diet to Strong diet gradually, ignoring acid forming food like White Flour, Red meat, all type of Process food etc. The mechanism of Blood Cleanse/Intestinal cleanse along with building alkaline reserves , Blood purification and L Glutamine based intestinal repairs shall help manage problem for good.

A Note on LOW Stomach Acid queries, Apple Cider Vinegar V/S Organic Salts, PPI’s
==============================================================
1) LOW Stomach Acid queries:-
I have come across many people raising queries on whether it is low acid that is causing the issue. As far as my knowledge goes this is not true. Acidosis or Acid Indigestion leading to Acid Reflux is caused by Acid buildup. The fact that we are using acid suppression (PPI) and acid neutralization (antacids) means that we have more than required acids present. In fact all our problems have started because of Acidosis or Acid Indigestion which is because of LOW PH of body fluids and blood.
Look; Acids are released only for protein digestion and more stronger the protein (meat) More acids are released. But if you are having a Vegetarian meal, not much acids are required as protein content is very less in this case; so where is question for low acid here? If you supplied HCL supplements while having alkaline or vegetarian food it would actually cause acid indigestion as no acids are required first of all to digest this type of meal. What is required in fact is a steady supply of Alkaline reserves to bring back PH to normal level for every meal and hence I use Organic salts with every meal which not only supply much needed alkaline reserves but also help bring pH to normal.

2)  PPI (Proton Pump Inhibitor class of druds used for Acid Suppression) :-
The reason these acid blockers (PPI’s) have caused havoc is because they are designed poorly and are thus causing more delayed stomach emptying (GP) when taken for long time. So now, If you had GP for Reason X, and once you have started on PPI drugs to suppress acid, your GP is now caused by Reason X + PPI’s (as their side effect caused more GP). That is why we must first make all efforts to put a stop to this class of drug as now even if you have resolved your Reason X which cause GP originally; you can still never come out of GP as there is now EXPLICIT or DELIBERATE GP caused by PPI class of drugs, and your GP will persist so long you continue to take them. Remember that Acid Neutralizing is always preferable than acid suppression as we do not want to interfere with logical functioning of stomach which is what these PPI class of drugs do. I have said in so many voices in last several months that you can never ever recover until and unless you get rid of this class (PPI) of drugs.
But you must take care of acid rebound effect when stopping these and also understand what type of food must be ate when you are off acid blockers. See if you ate food that does not require ACID RELEASE; then automatically you are making acid blocker redundant. If you have learnt food behaviors you would be able to understand what to eat and how to eat and eventually your stomach would restore back. You must read my blog on WordPress to understand mechanism first.
http://www.betterbones.com/alkalinebalance/dietplan.aspx

3) Apple cider Vinegar (ACV) V/S Organic Salts:
Those with Acid Reflux  have benefited by taking ACV (Apple cider Vinegar) just before meals. Apple cider vinegar although very acidic; is ALKALINE forming food there by helps regulate PH of Digested food. The Digested food must be neutralized before it can be passed on to next stage in stomach for digestion. If the PH of digested food is low it just sits there along with acid released for digestion and hence causes acid reflux in some people.
But ACV is very strong, and unless diluted properly cannot be used if you have a Sensitive stomach, and so in that case better alternative to use is ORGANIC SALTS like Black salt/Himalayan Pink Salt/Celtic Salt/Sea salt (Impure Crystals). I normally combine all of these salts and sprinkle these on all my meals after they are served. These salts are capable of absorbing heat and also help regulate PH of digested food. So, it is safe to say that instead of ACV these ORGANIC SALTS can be used instead to avoid acid indigestion.

Let Thy Food Be Thy Cure! This is the IDIOM we use to manage or cure GP and all its manifested issues. The mechanism of Blood Cleanse/Intestinal cleanse along with building alkaline reserves through Organic salts and seeds , Blood purification and L Glutamine based intestinal repairs shall help manage problem for good.

** A NOTE on How to Stop PPI/H2 Blockers **
==========================================
1)
Getting off Pro Kinetic/Constipation drugs, Acid Blockers & Proton Pump Inhibitors (Nexium, ranitidine, famotidine, omeprazole, Razo etc) is very important first steps in managing this issue. Being on H2 Blockers/PPI class of drugs for long time and then stopping suddenly will have acid rebound effect for first 3-4 days. You must follow soft/grilled/steamed/Roasted ALKALINE only diet when stopping PPI for first one week.  We do not want to use any drugs that interfere with logical functioning of stomach and so getting off PPI/Pro Kinetic class of drugs is very important first steps towards dealing with this complex issue.
2)
Easiest way to do switchover without getting affected by acid bound and other withdrawal effect of PPI’s would be to use TRIPHALA capsule after every meal along with Organic Salts like Black Salt/Himalayan pink salt with every meal. TRIPHALA HERB is an excellent intestinal cleanse and motility herb and is very important part of managing the GP and subsequent issues.
3)
I have also used  Cold milk(No Sugar), Baking soda dissolved in water (Not Baking Powder) to sooth  stomach when I felt it turning acidic because of acid rebound effect of stopping PPI for first 3-4 days. Acid neutralizing is always preferred than acid suppression. PPI’s also feed delayed emptying making sure that gastro paresis never goes away. No doubt that they (Doctors) call Gastro Paresis as progressive as the very drug they prescribe (PPI class of drugs), make sure that delayed emptying never really gets cured.  While struggling on my GP issues I understood it soon that these drugs (PPI/Motility) were actually making the problem worst, but I found this research only recently because I needed to convince others why one should be wary about using them. Read Discussion Section here: http://gut.bmj.com/content/42/2/243.full

if one can survive on soft /grilled/steamed/Roasted diet for one week not taking any medicines then you surely will get benefited if you followed steps in my blog

Okay guys; let’s understand how PPI class of drugs can cause the acidity issues
=========================================================
I have seen that women are the most suffering from this issue as I guess they seems to have more interaction with doctors because of women related issues.
In a typical scenario this is what happens :–>>

1) A Person goes to Doctor for some issues for which a small surgery was performed.
2) A Person is now prescribed Antibiotics, Painkillers, and PPI class of drugs for acid suppression as Painkillers & Antibiotics cause acidity issues and hence Doctors now as per latest technology use Acid Blockers and NOT acid neutralizing that was done before Year 1989.
3) A person is asked to continue this prescription for 1-2 weeks or more; till the surgical area can be healed.
4) A Person has completed the duration of prescription and now discontinues the drugs prescribed including PPI class of drugs
5) Doctors have probably forgotten the ACID REBOUND effect of PPI class of drugs so they never asked patient to do acid neutralizing for the acid that was released after stopping of PPI class of drugs.
6) A Person now feels more bouts of nausea, heaviness etc that are symptoms of acid released because of rebound effect of Stopping PPI.
7) So now if you did not have a leaky gut and you did not have a time; you will just ignore these symptoms and so you are saved for the rest.
8) But now if you panic and go back to doctor and Inform that you now have  nausea ,  heaviness etc that are symptoms of Acidity, what happens is that Doctors now put you back on PPI class of drugs to manage your acidity issues.
9) This is now a case where PPI stop acidity for a time , but when you stop them there is a Acid rebound which causes more acid release and since no acid neutralization was recommended upon stopping of PPI you start to get acidity issues.
10) A person can come out of this LOOP if they did acid neutralizing after stopping of PPI class of drugs. But did your doctors inform you this??
11) A study has already been published that PPI cause and enhance delayed emptying issues (Gastro Paresis) . What if we went back to old ways of acid neutralizing and stopped using acid blockers? Will not the problem go away then !!!. And what more proof is needed?
A simple problem of Acidity has become Frankenstein monster in the form of Gastro paresis and most of your are the living proof of how Pharmaceutical are playing the game so well by creating the customers and not providing the cure!!.

Okay I just saw a preview of FIRE IN THE BLOOD movie. Seems like they confirm what most of us already know.

WHAT IF INSTEAD OF ACID BLOCKERS, ACID NEUTRALIZING WAS USED?

Just picture this that you are in the Year 1988 when PPI were not yet Born (Thank God!).
Those days; instead of ACID BLOCKERS, Acid Neutralizer like Gelucil or any other Good Antacid was used to treat acidity issue that arose because of use of painkiller & antibiotics. The only difference here is that Acid neutralization is done on frequent basis where as acid blockers were just taken once or twice a day.
In that case in previous example when the duration of prescription was over (step 4); you should be sitting pretty and life just went on. Since Acid blockers were not used; there was NO ACID REBOUND and also No Side effect of Delayed Emptying of stomach (Gastro paresis).
In previous example I took you back to days when the problem was just ACIDITY, but because of prolonged use of acid blockers and pro kinetics now it has been GRADUATED to more complex Gastro Paresis and Acidosis. Look at the number of loops created.
1) PPI Loop (Remember that Hotel California song, you can Check Out anytime but you can never leave!!)
2) Gastro Paresis LOOP which manifests more issues  (Acidosis, Constipation, functional dyspepsia, anemia  etc )
3) and then Once you have all those devices in your stomach & Neck (G Tube , Feeding tube ) then this is  another loop that is created.
The only way out is to break these loop’s. But remember that your first loop is PPI Loop and  I am here on  this website since almost 4 months and most of you have not yet accepted the fact that why you are stuck  and what is not causing you to get cured when you guys are doing practically everything right , right from  eating food that suits you, providing external nutrition’s (TPN) etc. You can never ever reach home by driving one KM forward and then One KM Backward.

*****

*****

Okay; before we understand how to Break PPI Loop I would like to touch a very important problem that we all face when coping with GP/Acid reflux issues; and that is how to resolve CONSTIPATION issues?

I have used Cayenne Pepper Detox (Lemon Detox) mostly to deal with constipation and it works always. Just Squeeze lemon + Add very Hot cayenne Pepper (Hot red chilies powder) ¾ spoon + Luke warm water in a glass, and drink this every two hours 2-3 times a day. The lemon detox also talks about adding maple syrup but we will skip that as sugars will cause more acidity and we do not want to allow that. Drink plenty of water also in between to help detoxicate well.
At the outset it may look very scary but trust me guys, I have done it several times when dealing with my GP issues and it will only hurt for 3-4 seconds only. I have used this technique once or twice a week to clear all my stool buildup. Usually if you ate Soft diet you could avoid the stool buildup.
Having healthy salts (NOT Table Salt) like Unrefined Sea salt (Impure crystals), Black salt, Celtic salt/Himalayan pink salt also helps digestion as these salts are also laxative. I would sprinkle these salts on all my meals after they are served and YES these healthy salts do not cause any BP issues. Similarly mucilage food like Fenugreek seeds grounded, Flax seed powder, marshmallow root powder helps create slippage on intestinal walls which helps proper bowel functioning in long run. Have 2-3 spoons of these seeds powdered daily and see the difference.

*****

BREAKING THE PPI LOOP, THE FIRST STEP TO FREEDOM
==========================================================
Okay Guys,
The easiest way to do switchover is to just stop the PPI/Pro Kinetic drugs, Eat Boiled Light meals Followed by a TRIPHALA Capsule after every  meal, and Sprinkle healthy Organic salts like Sea Salt(Impure crystals, Black , Rock salts) on every meal to avoid acid indigestion.
But since I want the switch over to be more resourceful and also that will also help us when we go in for breaking the Gastro Paresis LOOP which will be our next action, I would ask you to understand these point first below:

We will use antacids and natural antacids to break the PPI loop, but we will also do everything to avoid even antacid use by having the food that   does not cause acid buildup. It is very important for you and your stomach BOTH to forget that pills are needed to lead a normal eating life. And   for that we must be away from all kind of medications required to eat food. But how do we do that ?
We have to eat food that does not cause much acid release and also the food that does not sit in stomach for long time. For that you must understand the FOOD BEHAVIORS. If you start  to take a count of each food then it will be difficult for you to understand what food causes  problem and what food not. Therefore what we do here  is to look  for a CATEGORY of food that cannot be had at present till recovery takes place.  Our journey from Soft food (Quickly prepared) to Strong food is going to be slow one but will ensure final success. I would say that in just 8-12 weeks you would be eating away more than 50% of your favorite foods when not on any medicines, but keeping in mind food behaviors and gaps required.

In a nutshell :
1) you will avoid white flour foods, Baked foods, Food that is strongly cooked, Sugar,Fried food, all type of processed/canned food, Fatty food.
2) Or in other words you can have all type of green vegetables, lentils which are quickly prepared, Rice (boiled), when using oil for preparation never   use more than 1-2 tsp so that food is light to stomach. Look for more non-meat but un processed food list as per your country.
3) I have also used Chilled/cold Milk (No Sugar) with Kellogs product 19/Muesli (Oat clusters with banana, papaya, apple, and dates as some of ingredients).
4) Only ALKALINE food snacking with dried raisins, Figs, Dates, cucumbers, carrot, papaya, mango, banana, water melon etc as you do not want   to build acids during snacking. Make Beets, Spinach, cabbage, broccoli as part of all your meals.
Is this too difficult to remember?  —
Trigger food for acidity means combination of meat + food that delay digestion or take long to digest. If you know what type of food delay’s   digestion you will know how to eat it and how much gap is required. White flour, baked, Rich oily curries, Fried food cause delay in digestion and   that is why they must never be combined with meat to avoid acidosis in future. Meat is safe when had in isolation or with rice in   grilled/steamed/boiled form. But you must avoid meat at least during recovery period or have it in moderation once a week. Red meat to be avoided  at all costs as it takes longest to digest.
Similarly Red meat, White flour food (bread , flat bread etc), baked food ((Biscuits, cake, pastries etc)) , Fried food, processed food (canned  food, chips, chocolates, Ice cream etc), fatty foods ARE the foods that take long to digest and thus delay digestion and so to be avoided.
If we ate mostly vegan food that was not strongly cooked, and is not fried; less acids are produced and hence stomach can empty faster. Boiled food   is safest form and whenever I ate a meal that caused me stress my next meal would be just boiled food to let stomach rest and recover. Always had a TRIPHALA (Himalaya) capsule when I ate meal that would give me anxiety.
————-
Getting off Constipation Drugs, H2 Blockers, and Proton Pump Inhibitors & Pro Kinetic drugs is very important first steps in managing this issue. Being on H2 Blockers/PPI class of drugs for long time and then stopping suddenly will have acid rebound effect. I have followed soft/grilled/steamed/Roasted diet or these example steps below when stopping PPI for first one first 3-4 days when putting a stop to PPI class of drugs:

Okay this is what I followed to break the PPI Loop:-
0)  3-days Before stopping the PPI/Pro Kinetics start taking TRIPHALA capsule(Himalaya) after every meal .
Also start using healthy salts with all meals.
1) Stopped all medications of PPI & Pro kinetic drugs.
2) Have Boiled /Soft diet (Quickly prepared food mostly vegan) for all 3 meals.
3) I have also used Chilled/cold Milk (No Sugar) with Kellogs product 19/Muesli, Followed by a TRIPHALA Capsule.
4)  Have only 3 meals. For snacking just use following: Raisins, Figs, cucumbers, carrots, Dates, apple juice or banana, papaya, mango, water  melon  alongside for moderate ALKALINE Food only snacking (only 3-4 hours after lunch).
5)  Triphala is an Excellent intestinal cleanse and Motility HERB. this herb has many benefits and a recovery without this herb may not be  possible. To see what else this herb does you can click on link below:
http://www.iherb.com/Himalaya-Herbal-Healthcare-Triphala-60-Caplets/3743  (this is what I have used)
http://nutritionreview.org/2013/04/triphala/
6)  Also sprinkle Organic salts  (NOT Table Salt) like Unrefined Sea salt (Impure crystals), Black salt, Rock salt , Celtic salt  on all meals.
The use of TRIPHALA capsule and  Organic Salts will make stopping PPI /Pro Kinetic drugs painless and you may not even know that you are off  them. There is more info below on triphala here:
http://www.iherb.com/Himalaya-Herbal-Healthcare-Triphala-60-Caplets/3743    (this is what I have used)
http://nutritionreview.org/2013/04/triphala/
http://www.nowfoods.com/Triphala-500mg-120-Tablets.htm
7)  Last but not the least I have used otc Antacids, Sea Salt added water, Cold milk (No sugar), coconut water, Baking soda dissolved in water  (Not Baking Powder) to sooth stomach  when I felt it turning acidic because of acid rebound effect of stopping PPI for first 3-4 days. Acid neutralizing is always preferred than acid  suppression. You may not even need to use any antacid if you took triphala.
8) After the PPI loop is broken and we are off these medicines, we will continue to have right food with Triphala after meal for next 4-6 weeks.
9) In just 5-7 days you would have seen the difference and understood whether you are on right path or not.
10) we will break the Gastro Paresis loop next once you have understood the PPI Loop break mechanism
11) If you are confused then just use triphala capsules  after all meals along with healthy salts with every meal and you will still be fine.
12) We can go to Gastro paresis LOOP break next but I will wait for the responses to carry on further or not.

Couple of points:
1) For Food, It does not matter whether it is Indian or American. Let us understand this way. It is the method of preparation that holds the key here. So I wrote all food must prepared in less than 7-7 minutes so that alkaline reserves in them are not lost. Similarly If oil is required for preparation then, never use more 1-2 tsp so that food remains light to stomach. Similarly we need to eat food that is more of alkaline forming and hence avoiding meat for now will help. This applies to all type of food whether Indian or American. Similarly we must avoid food or products that are made from white flour, are baked, fried, contain sugar, are canned or processed. So you see my point, it applies to all foods.
2) Good that you bought Himalayan salt, I could not get it here in India so I have used instead black salt, Sea salt (Impure, organic form), and Himalayan pink salts. And just to make sure I was sprinkling a pinch of all these salts on my food.
3) Stopping PPI shall be done as I prescribed above. at one go.
4) If we continue to mix cure mechanism by going to different doctors I think we will confuse it only. Since our mechanism is only about natural products one could just give it a try and not mix things up. If everyone is going to try and mix up things then how will you blame me it it went wrong, because then I can always say that you did not follow steps as I asked you to.
5) My point is that just trust the steps as they are, and there is nothing difficult here. Just stop PPI and use Triphala and Salts along with rightly prepared light vegan food and you are good

Hope this helps.

Let us consider this example to understand how we are going to eat:
===========================================================
The water  has reached its boiling point and now continues to simmer and boil. But as you increase the heat, you will see that it starts to boil with force and also spills out, as more and more heat is increased. Now in a scenario where the heat is increasing but at the same time we have to make sure that water does not spill out what you will do? Yes; you will add a small amount of cold water as you see increase in the heat. So, along with increasing the heat you will also continue to add cold water. This is a case where we stop the spilling of water by adding more and more cold water whenever the heat is increased. But a more desired scenario we need to achieve would be to add cold water and make sure that heat is at lowest level possible.

Similarly our Body heat(acidic state) is at highest level as of now. When we eat food the heat increases further because of acid released for digestion of food. The food just sits there waiting to be neutralized. So as we provide alkaline reserves with every meal we make sure that PH of digested food is brought to optimum level so that it can empty. That is why when you take that ACV (or Organic salts) before meal it helps neutralize the digested food and you do not feel acid reflux as food has now moved to next stage. ACV is an alkaline forming food.
But the more desired scenario we need to achieve is; by having food that do not cause much of acid release, food that are alkaline forming and can empty faster (by avoiding having food that take long to digest). Most of our food, Vegan or Meat already has alkaline reserves in them but as we cook them strongly for long times or fry them the alkaline reserves are lost and hence the need to supply alkaline reserves externally along with every meal. That’s why the need to cook the food quickly (less than 7-8 minutes with least oil) so that it’s light to stomach and has alkaline reserves which are not destroyed because of strong cooking or too much oil. Because of acute acid buildup all our alkaline reserves are depleted and hence what we do now is to make all efforts to increase alkaline reserves but at the same time make sure not to continue eating Acidic food lifestyle. Since our body stores alkaline reserves in the form of salts what better way but to provide the reserves through salt themselves to speed up boosting these reserves. And the added advantage is that these healthy salts (Himalayan pink salt, black salt, Sea salt, Rock salts all in ORGANIC form) are also capable of absorbing heat.

*****

*****

ROLE OF ALKALINE RESERVES in MAINTAINING ACIDIC BALANCE  v/s Coolant in your CAR
==================================================================
Consider this example of role of COOLANT in a CAR. The job of coolant is to absorb the heat generate by the engine and transport it away, thus keeping the engine cool. Coolant, If left unchecked, the heat in the engine will build and reach a tipping point, after which the engine is liable to overheat and break down. This is why cooling systems are necessary.

Very similarly the ALKALINE RESERVES (calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, zinc) are required to neutralize excess heat or PH of digested food so that it can empty faster.  Have a look at alkaline reserves in ACV, Flax seeds, Raisins. Look at mineral sections as these are your alkaline reserves:-

http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/spices-and-herbs/217/2    (ACV)
http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/fruits-and-fruit-juices/2051/2   (Raisins)
http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/nut-and-seed-products/3163/2 (Flax seeds)

Since the digestion is impaired at present and stomach is not able to bring nutrients out of food, we soak the Raisins in water for 8-10 hours and when we drink this water and eat raisins;  helps restoring alkalinity of blood and also provides necessary Iron (This is same as TPN in medical terms).
This explanation also breaks your myth of ACV being regarded as test for low stomach acid, as in fact ACV is alkaline forming and helps increase PH of food because of its alkaline forming properties. Look Guys, even if LOW STOMACH ACID problem exists in some cases, all OUR problems at present are only  because of more acid and certainly not low acid so I would stop going in debates and getting confused on this aspect for now. But we will avoid ACV for others reasons and instead use Organic salts.
Thanks

JUST A QUICK REMINDER; You will fail the objective of this forum/program if you continue to use PPI/Pro Kinetic(motility) & Any Constipation medicines. Please know that Stomach and Colon are two sides of same coin. We shall take care of both of them by going totally natural. If you followed exactly by understanding the steps listed above you will be looking at a different life that is devoid of any medicine at least for acidity and Gastro Paresis, in around 8-12 weeks, the life that you have been only dreaming of till now. My request is to understand the post thoroughly by reading them several times. It would help you more if you first read my recovery blog on Word Press with same id as inspire Id (sunild1204). Similarly Our problems are because of More Acids and NOT low Acid therefore I request all those here on this website to discontinue taking HCL supplements as by doing that they are only causing EXPLICIT ACID INDIGESTION thereby aggravating the problem.

Since we apply holistic approach to solving the problem, we have to take care of entry (stomach), Exit (colon) and Fuel (Blood) all together to achieve greater results. That is why Flax seed powder, Fenugreek seed powder, chia seeds powder must be consumed daily to take care of bowel and constipation issues. I have used Cayenne pepper to clear acute poop buildup once a week. Yes Cayenne pepper and turmeric are healers and you do not need to be wary of these spices. If you read my recovery blog on Word Press you may get more clues on how to manage all these 3 factors.
Similarly Raisin soaked water , wheat grass powder are need to clean up the blood and provide minerals and necessary iron. What will save the day for you is organic Salts, so I would say buy Black  Salt (this is pink or grey in color), Himalayan salts, Sea salt that is impure or organic and use them several times  a day with all meals , fruits.
Yes all Snacking must be 100% alkaline so as to not promote acid buildup during extra food that we have between meals. White Flour takes long to digest so you may either avoid it at least during recovery or have it with gap of 24 hrs. You may use other type of flour instead which can be digested quick. All type of meat since, they require acid release for digestion can be avoided for now but can be had once a week in small portions in grilled/roasted or boiled form. Red meat and fried food is completely no for now. Yes, on this diet another thing that will happen is that you will see blood sugar getting controlled. I had borderline Diabetes but was completely gone when on this diet. Fenugreek seeds are known to regulate blood sugar level when consumed for long time.
When we go natural the cure is permanent but takes long time to come. Usually in around 8-12 weeks you would have noticed great progress when on this diet along with triphala and salts. We must continue to build alkaline reserves and follow 80% alkaline & 20% Acidic food habits to make the cure permanent in long run.

I have only covered 40% of the story but was waiting to see more updates. We still need to cover the second cause of Gastro Paresis which is because of Leaky Gut and subsequent acidosis. This is a different scenario and is more closed to what I suffered. This is a scenario where use of L – Glutamine is required at end to resolve the issue from Root. This is also a case where we start to lose lots of weight as blood acidity are at highest level and body tries to neutralize or bring back the PH level by buying minerals from bones and muscles. I remember I had lost my entire stomach during that time with only bones visible and virtually no belly. In this case immediately after every meal our stomach starts to burn as if its on slow gas/fire and you start to dread every meal. For now, I want those to come forward who are losing a lot of weight because of the issue and have shrunk in size. For these people, having food without Acid Blockers (PPI) is not imaginable as the stomach immediately goes on fire after every meal. They feel burning abdominal pain and dizziness after every meal.

*****

*****

So we understood following:->
1) We must avoid Acid Buildup by eating more of alkaline foods (e.g. avoid Sugar/meat for now)
2) We must avoid Food Buildup by eating food that do not take long  to digest (e.g. avoid White flour &  Fried foods for now). Your stomach is slow at present, so eating food that take long to digest only causes  more stress to stomach and therefore skip this type of food for now.
3) We must supply alkaline reserves with each meal by having quickly prepared food and Organic salts like Black salt/Himalayan pink salt.
4) We must take care of constipation issues by eating mucilage food every day (e.g. Flax seeds powder, Chia seeds powder, Fenugreek seeds powder, Clarified butter).
5) We must cleanse blood using Raisin Soaked water (raisins soaked for 8-10 hrs), Wheat grass powder or all such products that help cleanse blood.
6) Triphala is an excellent intestinal cleanse and motility HERB and can be easily replaced in place of PPI/Pro kinetics.
7) To help this method work you must not be using PPI/Pro Kinetics / Constipation drugs at all.

In fact we must start at first with lemon detox to make sure that there is no poop buildup because of prolonged slowing of stomach and colon. Just Squeeze Lemon + add 1/2 tea spoon of red chilies powder (Cayenne Pepper) + add water and drink this 2-3 times a day. This can be done at least one day a week to make sure that no poop buildup is happening till we have controlled the issue by going natural for few weeks. This method may look gross but is very effective, and remember that Cayenne pepper is a healer so you do  not need to be vary of this method. I have done this several times when struggling with my bowel issues. But usually after you start to take mucilage foods like Flax seed, chia seed the constipation problem is resolved and you do not need this method unless needed once a while.

*****

there are two types of problem faced w.r.to Acidity. One is Acid Reflux where acid goes back to neck area and caused heart burn. Second is Acidosis (My case) Where after every meal you start to feel burning pain around abdominal area as if stomach is put on slow fire after every meal you consume. this causes dizziness, fatigue and also you start to lose lots of weight with each passing day.

Now my cure mechanism works for both cases. Only if you belong to second case that is Acidosis, the food habits must be adhered to tightly on 100% basis and you can not take any chances on food that must be avoided during recovery period.

Look once you are having acidity issues, two things happen. 1- Your stomach is not able to bring out nutrition from food that you eat making you nutrition deficient in long run. This happens because of Acid indigestion meaning that, acids are present to digest food when they should not be; for e.g. acids are required for protein digestion but carbohydrate and fats require more alkaline environment for digestion  and hence presence of acids during carbohydrates and fats makes the food get digested without getting nutrients out of it. 2- Another thing that happens is that because of acid indigestion stomach is not able to produce required quantities of amino acids that are essential for internal repairs.

That is why my mechanism takes care of both Nutrition deficiency and provide externally glut amine amino acids required for internal repairs. But you must understand food behaviors and eat accordingly so as to not cause further ACID BUILDUP & FOOD BUILDUP.

Read my blog several times and you will know how this method can resolve the issue just in few months but you must continue to adhere to safe food habits to make this cure permanent in long run.
TRIPHALA is a natural pro kinetic HERB which helps not only stomach motility but also helps detox and other benefits while you are on this herb for few months. Similarly BLACK SALT or HIMALAYAN SALT will help cool down your stomach system and regulate digestive fires which go up with every meal. Here in India I use BLACK SALT with every meal which also has laxative properties.

******

A Slow traffic will cause traffic Jams even if you create new lanes and new highways.
In same way slow stomach motility will continue to cause GP and that’s why you must get on to triphala for at least 2-3 months just after every meal reducing dosage every 4 weeks finally bringing on to one once a while.
SOME OF YOU have been skipping this important step in the misguided knowledge that triphala will cause diarrhoea. Look; Triphala acts like laxative only till the time there is some waste stuff to expel otherwise it will provide much needed stomach motility and detox. Hope this is understood once and forever.
I know lots of you are trying to come out with your own discovery and mechanism, but I am afraid in doing so you will only be one step away from cure.
There was this man who thought when a Kid could swim so well , so CAN he, despite he did not knew how to swim. He jumped into the lake, and look what happened, he almost drowned!!
I hope you get the idea and stick to what is tested and can be trusted. NOT everyone has research capabilities. I would rather first try what is tested and then jump on to do more discoveries side by side if I wanted to. What is important right now is to get rid of GP and not try to do research.
Thanks

************************

Yeah.
Acid Blockers cause Acid Rebound as their effect wears or they are stopped. This extra acid causes acid indigestion meaning acids are present when they should not be to digest food.
acids are release for protein digestion but if you have acids present when the food is either carbohydrate or starch which require alkaline environment for digestion…food just sits there as there is not such stomach environment present and thus causes slow down in digestion process.
As you continue to eat food and this food is also in queue for digestion but since acids are present when they should not be causes further delay and so on….
THIS IS GASTRO PARESIS as now accumulated acids further cause bloating, nausea, heaviness etc etc causing further breakdown in stomach digestion slowing it more and more….
So now you are in a LOOP where you can not get out.
AND YES PPI contributed to this ordeal making sure you never come out of it.
Remember acid blockers were essentially created to cure you of acidity issues but are actually giving you more acidity if you stopped them….This is a vicious loop…..

Gastro Paresis /Hyper Acidity / Delayed Stomach Emptying (DYSMOTILITY) RECOVERY PROGRAM

Gastro Paresis /Hyper Acidity / Delayed Stomach Emptying (DYSMOTILITY) / Acid Reflux/ Acidosis  RECOVERY PROGRAM

** It is advised to also refer to parent blog for more details on this program below **

https://sunild1204.wordpress.com/2011/04/09/acidic-stomachdyspepsiahyper-aciditystomach-problems/

https://sunild1204.wordpress.com/2013/11/19/faqqueries-acidosisacid-reflux-gastro-paresis-leaky-gut/

https://sunild1204.wordpress.com/2015/04/13/my-recent-brush-with-acidosis/

Before you start this program

===========================

  • Hyper Acidity / Acidic Stomach and subsequent Gastro Paresis is cause by STORED ACIDS due to SLOW STOMACH caused by certain medicines/Drugs (Mostly NSAID painkillers or Acid Blockers [PPI/H2 Blockers] class of drugs or any other medication that slows the stomach). Once Stomach has slowed down due to certain medicines, Acidosis occurs and accumulated acids in turn cause MORE SLOW STOMACH and thus the LOOP. The CURE mechanism involves cleaning up stored acids first along with providing motility (STOMACH) on regular basis till the problem is reversed. The extra ACIDS released for digestion are neutralized on every meal basis by providing sustained ALKALINE RESERVES WITH EVERY MEAL IN FORM OF ORGANIC SALTS & QUICKLY PREPARED FOOD that does not required acid release avoiding sugar & meat.
  • First Thing you must do is to STOP ALL MEDICATION of Proton Pump Inhibitors / H2 Blockers Class of Drugs (e.g. NEXIUM, ranitidine, famotidine, omeprazole, RAZO etc) that you are used to for suppressing Acid. It is proven that these drugs although help suppress acids but as a side effect enhance DYSMOTILITY or slow stomach emptying making sure that you never get cured. You must also STOP all Pro kinetic / motility class of drugs (e.g. REGLAN, Domperidone, Erythromycin) as these have many side effects and are mostly ineffective in long run. FOR THIS PROGRAM TO SUCCEED YOU MUST BE OFF PPI/Pro Kinetic/Constipation Class of drugs. Please know that PPI class of drugs is used for SUPRESSING ACID While PRO KINETIC Drugs are used to push the digested food through stomach (Motility) for EVERY MEAL you take.
  • All you need to do is to TRUST THIS PROGRAM (as most of what I write is already tested on me), and you will realize that what you were doing before was just a faulty line of treatment enforced upon you by the medical fraternity which has really not understood gastro paresis problem till now. All they do is to just enforce a generic program that included PPI/Motility class of drugs along with antacids to manage the issue and thereby make you all SLAVE to this faulty mechanism that only brings more problems later. So long, that you continue to suppress acids using PPI, delayed emptying will continue to persist. Read DISCUSSION section of article here: “   http://gut.bmj.com/content/42/2/243.full   “. Look for how to stop PPI section somewhere in parent blog.
  • Instead what is required is, to follow a Leaky Gut Repair Protocol (Leaky Gut Prescription) that involves use of alkaline reserves (Seeds & Salts), TRIHPHALA capsule for Intestinal Cleanse & motility, L Glutamine for Intestinal repair and lightly cooked diet on slow flame that is devoid of Meat , processed food, white Flour foods & Rich oily curries; during recovery period. Your food is going to be your medicine from now on. We will use right food(quickly prepared); Intestinal & Blood cleanse(Triphala, Raisin water,Wheat grass powder), build alkaline reserves along with healthy salts(Himalyan pink salt,Black salt,Sea salt(Impure crystals)), Using Mucilage food like  cabbage juice/Bottle Gourd juice, grounded flax seeds, fenugreek seeds, chia seeds  with water to cure CONSTIPATION to get rid of this complex issue. We will also use L-Glutamine powder to help repair Intestinal Lining/Mucosa to resolve it from root.

 This is a HOLISTIC program and so all steps must be taken together as mentioned in this blog to get better results. You will fail the program; if you continued to use PPI/Pro kinetic/constipation drugs when following this program. You must take up this program with CLEAR INTENT to get cured and NOT JUST follow it in an ad- hoc manner. Please put in your comments & queries only after you have tried this program for at least 2 weeks. ONE SHALL NEVER start this program without Cabbage juice, TRIPHALA / Black salt (grey or pink in colour) or Himalayan pink salt.  

What you will need

==================

SEEDS (Flax, Fenugreek, Alfalfa, Chia – these are all grounded and taken with water) as these contain Alkaline Reserves that your body needs to neutralize the acids that are released to digest the food and also for the acidic food that you consume. CABBAGE JUICE /Bottle Gourd juice 2 times a day for next few weeks. Cabbage juice/Bottle Gourd juice is a must for ulcer or sensitive stomach cure. Gastro Paresis /Hyper Acidity / Delayed Stomach Emptying (DYSMOTILITY) / Acid Reflux/ Acidosis  RECOVERY PROGRAM

CABBAGE JUICE/Bottle Gourd juice 2 times a day, Cabbage juice/Bottle Gourd juice is a must for ulcer or sensitive stomach cure. These also contain Mucilage that will help cultivate the right surface moisture and slippage on intestinal walls to protect stomach from acid secretion that takes place during digestion and will also help resolve CONSTIPATION Issues. In addition 1-2 spoon Pure cow ghee / Clarified Butter before sleep every night for easy bowels. Flax seeds:    “  http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/nut-and-seed-products/3163/2  “
  • SALTS    ORGANIC Sea Salt (Impure crystals)/ Black salt /Rock salt /Celtic/Himalayan Pink salt. These healthy salts contain minerals that would help stimulate better digestion. These ORGANIC SALTS are capable of absorbing heat and very necessary as every meal causes digestive fires to go up. Our body stores alkaline reserves in the form of salts. These SALTS also provide much needed alkaline reserves. We will sprinkle these salts on every meal that we have. At least one table spoon of these salts to be consumed daily. http://www.familycarechirowc.com/index.cfm/articles/why-you-should-get-off-prescription-acid-reducing-drugs-asap/
  • RAISINS   (10 Black raisins), these are soaked in water overnight and when we drink this water; helps bring ALKALINITY & Iron to blood thereby helps us eating heavy and large amounts of food speeding up the digestion in long run. To increase absorption of Iron Rich food like raisins, cereals like Kellogg product 19/cheerios, wheat flour you must combine these with Vitamin C rich food like Oranges, Lemon etc.   http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/fruits-and-fruit-juices/2051/2       http://www.parentingscience.com/iron-rich-foods.html
  • L GLUTAMINE Powder (Unflavoured no sugar) and Multiple Amino acids powder (BCAA unflavoured no sugar) for GUT REPAIR.

Caution: L Glutamine not to be used while you have a sensitive stomach or stomach lining inflammation; to be used only in later stages (2-3 months after recovery). Stop it if you get burning pain or feel that Glutamine is causing the damage/uneasy stomach, as this means the stomach is not yet ready for this supplement. Instead use CABBAGE JUICE/Bottle Gourd juice  2 times a day.This powder 1 teaspoon daily  (5 days a week, 2 Hrs before or 2 hrs after meal or early morning) is known to help repair gut lining/ mucosa thereby resolving the problem from root. Studies have found that L-glut amine supports the regeneration and repair of cells lining the intestinal wall. I have myself used 2 products, Pure L Glutamine powder and British Nutrition’s Glutamine recovery formula (BCAA). Reduce or stop the dosage for 2-3 days if you get Sore throat; mouth ulcers or other such symptoms as listed in side effects link below. Use alternate day or Mon-Fri consumption to avoid any side effects. Just watch out for any side effects (sore throat etc) but if you stick to lowest dose of  1 Tea spoon a day 5 days a week you shall be fine. I took this for around 4 weeks, stopped for a week and restarted. This is to be done for 3-4 months.

  • For any stomach anxiety after meals;  Carom seeds boiled water (It controls nausea and vomiting, and increases appetite.), Antacids like Baking soda (NOT baking powder) dissolved in water, Chilled milk (No Sugar), a TRIPHALA capsule after meal or OTC antacids can be used. Remember that Acid neutralizing is always preferred than acid suppressions. Mostly I used TRIPHALA capsule for any type of anxiety after meals.
  • LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST, a soft/Lightly prepared (Quickly prepared and on slow flame) diet(80% alkaline 20% Acidic mostly vegan) till recovery. We must increase alkaline reserves by having vegetable diet avoiding meat at least during recovery periods. Food at this stage can never be strongly cooked/processed/baked/fried (slow digestion) or acidic (strong Protein, sugar, meat). All type of MEAT to be had in Boiled/Grilled/Steamed form only. The journey from soft/Lightly prepared(Quickly prepared) diet To strong diet is a slow one, but will ensure final cure. Also Triphala is very important herb in this program. Include / sprinkle (1/2 TSP) cayenne pepper [Red chillies powder] with all your meals if you have a sensitive stomach, this is required to heal the stomach which is now sensitive due to acids.
  • A Typical food list example that will not cause stomach anxiety is listed below:-
  • CABBAGE JUICE/Bottle Gourd juice 2 times a day just before meal for sensitive stomach, ulcer cure.
  • Breakfast : Cold milk without Sugars with kellogs/muesli and banana
  • Lunch: quickly prepared vegan food with Rice or any boiled vegan food
  • Dinner: Quickly prepared vegan food with Rice or Rice + Plain Yoghurt
  • For snacking any time of day use only  Alkaline foods   like dried raisins, Figs, cucumbers, dates, banana, papaya, water melon, Mango, Beet.
  • Sample One Day Alkaline Diet Plan: http://www.betterbones.com/alkalinebalance/dietplan.aspx 

WHAT NOT TO DO

===================

One thing you will strictly avoid is RICH CURRIES with lots of oil in them. Strictly AVOID NSAID Painkillers, skipping meals,Tea Coffee & Alcohol during this period. Tea coffee can be had once you have cured your sensitive stomach by taking TRIPHALA capsule for 7-10 days. If you feel anxiety after any food have one TRIPHALA capsule or cold milk (No Sugar) or coconut water or baking soda (NOT baking powder) dissolved in water. Avoid Green chilies, instead use peppercorn or cayenne pepper (red chilies powder). Strictly avoid canned food, White flour, baked food and hot milk during this time. That means you must avoid soft drinks, Sugar/fried/baked (Biscuits, cake, pastries etc)/red meat/flour (bread, flat bread/chapatti etc)/all type of processed food (canned food, chips, tomato sauce, chocolates etc), at all costs till the stomach is ready to take them back till recovery take place. No meat for next 2-3 months. Strictly avoid Red meat and deep fried oily greasy food and rich curries.  

FIRST THING IN MORNING

=======================

  • 1 CUP CABBAGE JUICE/Bottle Gourd juice 2 times a day, Cabbage juice/Bottle Gourd juice is a must for ulcer or sensitive stomach cure. 1 Spoon for mix of grounded flax seed powder, CHIA Seeds grounded, Fenugreek seeds grounded Marshmallow root powder (Althaea officinalis) along with Some Water. This is done to ensure healthy mucus growth and support slippery stomach lining to protect from acid that is secreted during digestion along with building alkaline reserves. This shall also help resolve constipation issues. I do this twice daily.
  • Add ½ lemon juice to ½ glass of water and add pinch of black or Himalayan pink salt to this and take this water once every day morning; this shall help flush out any acid accumulated. Also Carom seeds water if you have a Nausea. Nausea is something where you have hunger in stomach but cannot take your food as you feel heavy in chest.
  • Add Wheat grass powder & alfalfa seeds grounded to Luke warm water added with pinch (1/3 tea spoon) of one or combination of Celtic Sea salt/Himalayan Pink salt/Black Salt /Rock Salt. Optionally add a pinch of Black pepper & Lemon juice. This is done to purify blood & restore alkalinity of body fluids.
  •  After recovery only;  (3-4 months of following this protocol), Unflavoured no sugar L-Glutamine or BCAA powder dissolved in water or shake (1 tea spoons) to help gut lining / Mucosa repair. I took this for around 4 weeks, stopped for a week and restarted. This is to be done for 2-3 months. Caution: L Glutamine not to be used while you have a sensitive stomach or stomach lining inflammation, instead use CABBAGE JUICE/Bottle Gourd juice 2 times a day.
  • For acidosis cure and to bring alkalinity to body fluids also drink raisins soaked water (10 black raisins soaked in water for 8-10 hours) and eat raisins twice daily. You may also prepare CHIA seeds soaked in water for 5-10 minutes and drink that along with CHIA seeds. To increase absorption of Iron Rich food like raisins, cereals like Kellogg product 19/cheerios, wheat flour you must combine these with Vitamin C rich food like Oranges, citrus fruits etc. I do this twice daily.
  • If you have functional dyspepsia (feeling of full stomach even with small meals) then you must perform KAPALBHATI or sit up Stomach exercises starting with 100 (give 10 second break for every 20 KAPALBHATI stomach steps) and gradually increasing it to 300-400 at one go. If your Stomach is feeling stressed (Full/Tight) even after small meal then you definitely have functional dyspepsia. Those with Blood Pressure (BP) issues must do this exercise moderately (around 50 at a time but repeat it 3-4 times in a day.). This exercise shall restore elasticity of your stomach back and will remove any stress caused by large meals later.

FOOD for ALL 3 MEALS

====================

  • have CABBAGE JUICE/Bottle Gourd juice 2 times a day, Cabbage juice/Bottle Gourd juice is a must for ulcer or sensitive stomach cure. Boiled food is the lightest form of food to stomach, you can add lemon juice, black pepper, Black salts on top of it. Have soft diet or lightly prepared(Quickly prepared) vegan food (7-8 minutes of cooking, less or no oil). We shall avoid acid build-up (avoid sugar,Meat) and Food build-up (Food that take long time to digest; Avoid white flour,fried & processed foods). If oil is required for preparation then never use more than 2 tea spoon of oil. Spices are welcome addition too. Always use Rice based food as they are very light to stomach during recovery stage. I have used Muesli with cold/chilled MILK (No sugar) and also Banana alongside. Alkaline foods   like dried raisins, Figs, cucumbers, dates, banana, papaya, water melon, Mango, Beet, Broccoli can be had any time in day or along with all meals. Sprinkle a lot of cayenne pepper on all meals if  you have a sensitive stomach. You will avoid Liquid curries, meat & fried food during recovery stages. Also the food that is prepared should not be curried and should not contain anything that is fried; also it should be dried food preparation (no liquid curries). If the food is with liquid curries just pick up dry content out of it leaving the curry for others. Meal like Curd + Rice and Rice + Spinach is very soothing to stomach and shall be reserved for nights mostly. Normally, an 80% Vegetarian and 20% Non vegetarian meal or sticking to MEAT in Grilled/Boiled/ Steamed form only would ensure life without acidity. We shall avoid meat during recovery stage. DO NOT FORGET to sprinkle one or combination of all of salts listed above on every meal you eat to help avoid Acid indigestion.
  • One TRIPHALA Capsules after every meal. We will do this for around 6-8 weeks or more depending upon recovery results.
  • Also L-GLUTAMINE powder (2 hrs before or 2 hrs after meal) dissolved in water or shake (1 tea spoons daily) to help gut lining / Mucosa repair. I took this for around 4 weeks.
  • Sample One Day Alkaline Diet Plan: http://www.betterbones.com/alkalinebalance/dietplan.aspx 

WHEN YOU WANT TO THROW ALL PRECAUTIONS TO WIND FOR THAT ONE DAY IN A WEEK ============================================================ Okay so you decided to forget about all precautions. No worries, there is a way but you must do it only occasionally. Just pick up a very good quality digestive Multi enzyme tablet e.g. DIGEPLEX T and TRIPHALA CAPSULE. Now just before meal have one Digestive Enzyme tablet and after you have finished your food have 1 or 2 TRIPHALA CAPSULE. How it works is that, Digestive enzymes help break food thereby less acids are produced and TRIPHALA is an excellent Intestinal cleanse and motility herb, thereby makes sure that food and digestive juices are not hold up for long in stomach. Always keep TRIPHALA handy for occasions where you had food that starts to give you anxiety. Have one TRIPHALA capsule for all such occasions which give you anxiety after meal. http://www.buzzle.com/articles/triphala-benefits.html

POST RECOVERY

===================

  • Trigger food for Acid Reflux / Acidosis means combination of meat + food that delay digestion or take long to digest. If you know what type of food delay’s digestion you will know how to eat it and how much gap is required. White flour, baked, Rich oily curries, Fried food cause delay in digestion and that is why they must never be combined with meat to avoid acidosis in future. Meat is safe when had in isolation or with rice in grilled/steamed/boiled form. One food that has always caused me issues is oily rich curries when combined with meat. I can eat everything but strictly avoid rich oily curries with meat in it. I have not found any issue when I have curries with vegetable food inside. As of now this is the only one combination that I avoid. As acidity prone individuals (thin stomach/mucosal lining is not able to protect us from excess acids produced for digestion) we can never afford to have food that would hold acids released for digestion for long time in stomach. That means all meats shall be ate in isolation and not combined with white flour foods and should never be fried. If you are going to eat food that would take long to digest e.g. white flour food, fried food then you must never eat meat along with these. Having a compromised stomach lining (thinned) the acids released for meat (protein) digestion would cause flare ups and would stress the stomach thereby promoting the delayed emptying.
  • Always remember that we are acidity prone individuals and so if you ever had food (Trigger food for Acid Reflux / Acidosis means combination of meat + food that delay digestion or take long to digest) that may cause delay in digestion especially when meat was consumed, have 1-2 TRIPHALA capsule immediately after meal to avoid return of acidosis.
  • I normally prepare myself for these occasions (when eating trigger food) by having one digestive enzyme tablet (e.g. DIGEPLEX T) just before meal followed by TRIPHALA capsule for fast motility, if I ever wanted to indulge in this type of food occasionally. How it works is that, Digestive enzymes help break food thereby less acids are produced and TRIPHALA is an excellent Intestinal cleanse and motility herb, thereby makes sure that food and digestive juices are not hold up for long in stomach. WE MUST continue to build alkaline reserves for the cure to become permanent.
  •  This is a HOLISTIC program and so all steps must be taken together as mentioned in this blog to get better results. You will fail the program; if you continued to use PPI/Pro kinetic/constipation drugs when following this program. You must take up this program with CLEAR INTENT to get cured and NOT JUST follow it in an ad- hoc manner. Please put in your comments & queries only after you have tried this program for at least 2 weeks. ONE SHALL NEVER start this program without TRIPHALA / Black salt (grey or pink in color) or Himalayan pink salt.

** You may exercise your own judgment in following some of cure mentioned in this blog ** ‘ *It is advised to also refer to parent blog for more details on this program below. *
