Relieve Embarrasing Gas and Belching Naturally

December 11th, 2006

What is Flatulence?

Flatulence is an excess of gas in the digestive tract, particularly the stomach and intestines. This can cause Bloating and abdominal pain, excessive Belching and passing of wind. It is normal for a certain amount of gas to end up in the digestive system and be expelled by Belching or flatus (passing wind).

However, for many people - particularly those who have an excess of these symptoms - Flatulence can be an embarrassing problem. Many people who suffer from excessive Flatulence and Digestive Gas have to constantly watch what they eat, no longer able to enjoy their favorite foods for fear of causing gas.

What causes Flatulence?

There are several factors that can cause an excess of gas in the digestive system. Certain foods in the diet are known to increase gas and Flatulence. Swallowing air during eating, talking and day to day life will also increase the amount of gas in the gut.

In certain people, excessive gas may be an indication of a medical condition such as lactose intolerance or inflammatory bowel disease.

Some of the most notorious foods for producing excess gas are vegetables like cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli (cruciferous vegetables), beans, pulses and whole grains, carbonated beverages and most foods that are high in dietary fiber, especially refined fiber.

Smoking, chewing gum, ill-fitting dentures, eating in a hurry or being nervous or anxious can all increase the amount of air that a person swallows and, in turn, lead to Flatulence and the associated symptoms.

When proper digestion is hampered by disorders like IBS, Crohn’s disease or any deficiency in normal digestive enzymes, Flatulence is a common result as excess gas is produced by the gut. Lactose intolerance is also particularly known for causing wind as these individuals lack the enzyme for breaking down lactose - a sugar found in milk and dairy products.

Another cause of excess Digestive Gas is Candida overgrowth in the gut. Candida is an organism that occurs naturally in the digestive tract, but can multiply under certain conditions resulting in Candida overgrowth and an imbalance in intestinal flora. Candida releases a large number of Toxins, resulting in intestinal gas, fatigue and fungal infections like thrush. Causes of Candida overgrowth include antibiotic use, excessive dietary sugar and weakened Immune Functioning.

How is Flatulence and Belching usually treated?

Although prescription and over-the-counter medications are not commonly used to control Flatulence and wind, your doctor or health care provider will be able to exclude any underlying medical causes for Flatulence.

Some OTC preparations are available to release gas from the digestive tract by precipitating Belching. While this may produce momentary relief, it does not address the underlying causes.

What is Gasolve Relief?

How has Gasolve Relief helped others?

“I have had a problem with wind for as long as I can remember and have tried everything to control it. The older I get the worse it seems. I never touch beans or cabbage (or anything else like that) and still have such an excess of gas that it is embarrassing even around my own family. Since using your Gasolve Relief I can honestly say I have far less wind. No more feeling like a blown-up balloon or having to excuse myself whenever I’m in company due to excess wind. This product is really great- thank you!” - Leanne

Coping With Constipation

October 24th, 2006

Constipation results when food moves too slowly through the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. About 80 percent of people suffer from Constipation at some time during their lives. Brief periods of Constipation are normal. Constipation is usually diagnosed when bowel movements occur fewer than three times per week on an ongoing basis.

Other signs of Constipation occur when the stool is hard, dry or there is excessive straining. The stool can often be described as “rabbit pellets” or like “toothpaste squeezed from the tube”. Sometimes it is painful to pass. Sometimes the patient does not feel complete after a bowel movement.

There is widespread belief that everyone should have a bowel movement at least once each day. There is no “right” number of bowel movements. Each person’s body finds its own normal number of bowel movements. It depends on the food you eat, how much you exercise and past history. This kind of thinking has led to the overuse and abuse of Laxatives.

Constipation can arise from lack of enough fiber and water, inadequate exercise, advanced age, muscle disorders and poor diet. Pre-menstrual and pregnant women can suffer from Constipation also but, the most common cause is usually dietary. However, Constipation can be a component of Irritable Bowel Syndrome or can result from a wide range of causes, such as a drug side effect or physical immobility.

many medications, including pain killers, antidepressants, tranquilizers, and other chiatric medications, blood pressure medication, diuretics, iron Supplements, calcium Supplements, and aluminum containing antacids can cause or worsen Constipation.

Constipation can sometimes have an unknown or idiopathic cause. Some people have a good diet, drink plenty of fluid or do not have a disorder, which can cause Constipation, yet become constipated. Their bowels are said to be ‘underactive’ . This is rather common. Most cases occur in women. This condition tends to start during childhood or in early adulthood and persist throughout life.

Transit Time is the amount of time it takes for a meal to go from the mouth to the rectum. A healthy transit time is less than 24 hours. Constipation is the result of poor digestive and bowel habits, which slow down the transit time, allowing waste materials to sit longer in the intestines. Stool (waste products) builds up along the wall of the colon preventing healthy absorption of nutrients.

Our stool is made up of our body’s waste including undigested food, toxic waste from the liver and billions of bacteria. As the stool sits longer in the intestines a metabolic process continues. The intestines continue to absorb water, making the stool harder and fermenting the bacteria. This starts the waste to rot creating toxic by-products, which are then absorbed into the bloodstream. This absorption of Toxins is a form of self-poisoning, called autointoxication.

Symptoms of autointoxication include: Headaches, brain fog, Depression, obesity, Diverticulosis, PMS, Bad Breath, foul smelling gas, Bloating Body Odor and include some autoimmune diseases.

Serious diseases, including colon Cancer, can sometimes first appear as bowel blockage leading to acute Constipation. Therefore, particularly Constipation of recent onset should be diagnosed by a physician. Dietary and other natural approaches should be used by people with Constipation only when there is reason to believe no serious underlying condition exists.

Nutritional Advice

Water and other liquids such as fruit and vegetable juices and clear soups are essential in any healing process. Liquid helps keep the stool soft and easy to pass, so it’s important to drink enough fluids. Distilled water is the best. 6-8 eight ounces glasses per day. Try not to drink liquids that contain caffeine or alcohol. Although a little caffeine works well as a diuretic, excess caffeine, dependency on caffeine for a bowel movement, as well as alcohol tend to dry out your digestive system.

Prunes are one of the best Natural Remedies for Constipation! A simple handful of prunes will make all the difference. Today, prunes actually come in different flavors! You can find them infused with natural cherry, grape and apple essence!

Apples contain naturally-occurring chemical compounds known as phytochemicals, polyphenols, or flavonoids, some of which have been proven to have Antioxidant activity that inhibits, or scavenges, the activity of free radicals in the body. Cell damage from free radicals can be a factor in certain cancers, Heart Disease, strokes, and other conditions such as Diabetes and Constipation.

A diet combined with both insoluble fiber (fiber that doesn’t dissolve in water) will keep most people regular. You get fiber from eating lots of vegetables, wheat bran, whole-grain breads and cereals and fruit.

Foods high in fiber are fruits such as apples peaches, raspberries and tangerines. Vegetables such as acorn squash, raw broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, spinach, Black-eyed peas, cooked zucchini, kidney beans and lima beans. Also cooked whole-grain cereal, cold (All-Bran, Total, Bran Flakes), whole-grain cereal, hot (oatmeal, Wheatena) and whole-wheat or 7-grain bread.

Juice Therapy is a great way to take advantage of the eliminative and cleansing capacity of the organs. This cleansing capacity is greatly increased and accumulated metabolic waste and Toxins are quickly eliminated. It affords a physiological rest to the digestive and assimilative organs. After the juice fasting or juice therapy, the digestion of food and the utilization of nutrients is improved.

Powdered psyllium is a quality source of supplemental fiber. Be sure to drink plenty of water, otherwise the fiber will form an obstructing mass, adding to your condition. Start with one rounded tablespoon of the powder stirred well into a glass of water or diluted juice.

Acidophilus: The normal, healthy colon contains “friendly” bacteria (85% lactobacillus and 15% coliform bacteria). It is the friendly bacterial flora found in yogurt and is essential to the digestive system. When these bacteria are not in balance, then the person may experience Bloating, Flatulence, Constipation, and malabsorption of nutrients. Acidophilus taken as a dietary supplement may help to detoxify and to rebuild a balanced intestinal flora. Acidophilus aids the digestion and helps to replace the “friendly” intestinal flora.

Lecithin is used to strengthen the heart as it clears the blood vessels of Cholesterol. It also useful as part of a weight loss programs to help dissolve fat.

Fiber (water-soluble) , psyllium, seed husks, or oat bran are suggested. Take 1 to 2 teaspoons of fiber supplement at night before bed.

Psyllium Husks: A natural plant source of dietary fiber essential for the proper functioning of the digestive system. Fiber significantly lowers total Cholesterol and LDL Cholesterol levels.

Add protein and carbohydrates to your diet: Incorporate protein into your diet. Protein helps to keep sugar levels stable. You can find protein in nuts, yogurt, beans, fish, chicken, tofu and lentils.

What You Should Avoid:

Limit foods that have little or no fiber such as ice cream, cheese, meat, snacks like chips and pizza, and processed foods such as instant mashed potatoes or already-prepared frozen dinners. Too much white flour and refined sugar, two major Constipation causers, means you need more fiber.

What you don’t eat may be even more important than what you do eat. Avoid alcohol, caffeine and sugar, because they tend to worsen Constipation. If you can’t avoid them, then at least cut down.

Avoid Caffeine: Caffeine is something many people in America and Europe are used to bringing in their daily lives. Though many studies have shown that this addictive stimulant can help produce symptoms of Anxiety, Insomnia and the like. Caffeine is found in coffee, tea, chocolate, many sodas and even certain medications. Always ask your doctor about a medication before using it. Also, ask the doctor if there is an alternative medication if your medicine contains caffeine.

Reduce Processed and Refined Foods:

Processed food can rob your food of nutrients and Vitamins that your body needs to fight off stress and promote good health. Try to buy whole foods, unprocessed foods and try and stay away from “instant” foods, preservatives, artificial flavors, Saturated Fat and MSG.

Reduce Sugar Intake:

Too much sugar can rob our body of essential nutrients. Yet don’t be so fast as to replace the sugar with Stevia the natural sweetener from the Stevia plant. Artificial sweetener can also cause Anxiety as well as other health concerns.

Reduce Alcohol Intake:

In small amounts, alcohol can be good for your heart but too much alcohol is not a good thing for your body and too large of an intake increases your body’s need for extra Vitamins. The body has a harder time using oxygen. As a result, you can become more sensitive to stress - which in turn can cause Constipation.

Super Acidophilus - For Intestinal Health

June 21st, 2006

“Super Acidophilus” would probably be the right name to appreciate the favorable effects of these bacteria on our health. What is Acidophilus? Lactobacillus Acidophilus is a lactic acid producing bacteria which is a “probiotic” organism meaning it favors life.

So, unlike many other pathogenic bacteria, Acidophilus is beneficial to human health. Our intestines are a home to about 400 species of micro-organisms and not all are good or bad. There is an ecological balance maintained in our body that helps all these bacteria and yeast to sustain them. The function of Acidophilus in human body is to absorb lactose form food and convert it into lactic acid thus facilitating digestion and overall health.

Now, about the availability of these bacteria, it is naturally present in our intestines, vagina and mouth. It is also naturally present in the intestines of the animals and in variety of food products like dairy products and meat especially fish.

Acidophilus Supplements are available in abundance in the market now in varying strengths and varieties. Sweet Acidophilus milks and yogurts are also available. It is used in milk processing and preparing yogurts and as Supplements for its various health benefits thus finding its place in most food stores.

What is Acidophilus used for? Well, the best use of this lactic acid producing bacteria is its aid in human health. Why should we need these bacteria when it is already present in our body naturally? There are reasons like antibiotic intake, chlorinated water, junk food, stomach infections and more which cause a depletion of friendly bacteria in our body thus accelerating the growth of yeast and pathogenic bacteria instead.

Taking Acidophilus may help in keeping the growth of harmful bacteria and yeast under control thus helps in protecting our body against Yeast Infections, digestive disorders and bad breadth.

Antibiotics can destroy useful flora thus causing yeast to overgrow and cause infections like thrush, Urinary Tract Infections and infections of the breast. Candida yeast can overgrow with antibiotics causing Allergies, digestive disorders, loss of energy and Urinary Tract Infection.

Acidophilus is strong enough to combat this yeast generally and is thus suggested with the use of antibiotics. It may help reduce Acne and produces essential B Vitamins in the body. It can help relieve lactose intolerance as it produces lactase which checks lactose intolerance. Cultured milk containing Acidophilus may be a good alternative for people who have difficulties digesting normal dairy products.

Acidophilus is also suggested to enhance general well being and immunity of the body. Acidophilus Supplements are found in various forms like powder, tablets, suppositories, liquid and capsules. They vary in their strength and care should be taken while choosing the one that matches your individual need. It’s important to read the instructions and check for “active” or “live” cultures. Heat, direct sunlight and excessive cold can destroy these bacteria.

In rare cases, these bacteria can excessively combine with saliva to digest foods thus producing plaque and releasing acid. Excessive acid released in one area can cause erosion of tooth enamel leading to tooth decay. It is best to consult your doctor if you experience any side effects though they are rarely reported.

In special cases such as pregnancy, it is better to take consultation before starting any Supplements. Overall, it is one of the best known bacteria which are essential for a healthy digestive system and overall health.

Gallstones (Liver Flush)

June 11th, 2006

It is estimated that nearly half of Americans with gallstones do not have any symptoms. Symptoms of gallstones are often misleading but may include Constipation, upset stomach, fatigue, Hepatitis, and even Diabetes. The symptoms can be so varied that gallstones are rarely thought of to be the culprit. Removal of your gallbladder does not exclude you from having gallstones either. They can still form in your bile ducts.

What Are Gallstones?

Gallstones are not truly stones. For one thing they float. The majority of gallstones are roughly 92-94% Cholesterol, which is an oil.

Supplies:

  • Fresh organic apple juice ~ 1 gallon
  • 1 pint (2-cups) cold pressed Olive Oil (DO NOT use heat processed)
  • Organic lemons – enough to make 1 cup of fresh juice

Optional Supplies:

  • Netting or colander large enough to fit underneath toilet seat
  • Rubber or disposable gloves
  • Pitcher of water
  • Glass jar
  • Pineapple juice

The Cleanse

Prepare for your cleanse by drinking all the fresh apple juice you desire for 1 day. The more juice the better, but only drink juice and water. No food. At 6:30 p.m. stop drinking.

Beginning at 7:00 p.m., drink ¼ cup Olive Oil along with 2 tablespoons of the juice from a fresh squeezed Lemon. Repeat this process every 15 minutes until you have consumed 1 pint of Olive Oil and at least ½ pint of Lemon juice. Finish off any remaining Lemon juice. Lie down and rest during this time and when finished go to bed.

Note: you may feel nauseous after consuming the Olive Oil but this should pass in a few minutes. If you still feel nauseous when it is time to consume your next ¼ cup, STOP, you are finished. Even if you have not consumed the entire amount.

Drape the netting or place the colander beneath the toilet seat and place a pitcher of water nearby. The water is to be poured over what you eliminate to wash the feces though the netting and leave the gallstones. Use your gloves to pick through the remains, remove and rinse the gallstones, and place them in your glass jar.

What to expect

You should expect to eliminate between ¼ cup to 2 cups of gallstones. They are usually green in color but may also be tan, Black or red. They may be as small as a seed or as large as a dime, quarter, or even larger.

Many people begin eliminating around 2:00 a.m. the next morning, and may continue to eliminate for a while. Some people don’t begin eliminating until late morning. Many folks experience discomfort, Headaches, Flu-like symptoms and occasionally vomiting may occur. If nausea is experienced, drink a few small sips of pineapple juice.

If you want to save your gallstones, place them in the freezer since they will continue to disintegrate otherwise.

Naturally Improve Your Digestion and Digestive System

June 10th, 2006

Acute and chronic digestive problems and disorders includes a broad spectrum ranging from Heartburn, Indigestion, GERD and Acid Reflux, IBS, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s, Colitis, Gastritis to other troublesome digestive symptoms including gas, Bloating, diarrhea and Constipation.

The family of digestive disturbances amounts to more than 2 million physician outpatient visits annually and almost 40% of referrals to a gastroenterologist.

Increasing public awareness with respect to the many diseases of the digestive system enables the best possible medical outcome and quality of life for current and future patients with digestive diseases. The importance of prevention, early diagnosis, and appropriate care for diseases of the digestive system needs to be stressed.

  • More than 70 million people suffer from digestive disorders that interfere with their work and their lives.
  • More people can be hospitalized for digestive diseases than for any other type of illness.
  • Digestive diseases can be life-threatening; colorectal Cancer is the second leading cause of death from Cancer in the United States alone.
  • Digestive diseases cost the nation an estimated $91 billion annually in health care costs, lost work days and premature deaths.

Poor digestion is also often at the root of many chronic ailments, such as low energy, pain, inflammation, Arthritis, and Allergies.

Natural Remedies and treatment options for digestive problems and disorders include diet, Herbs, Supplements, home remedies, alternative therapies and more.

Natural and Alternative Treatments for Digestive Problems and Improving Your Digestion

  • Peppermint oil (Mentha piperita) - Abdominal pain, the most frequent and disabling symptom of IBS, improves when the intestinal smooth muscles are relaxed. Peppermint oil can reduce abdominal pain and distension of IBS, possibly by blocking the influx of calcium into muscle cells and inhibiting excess contraction of intestinal smooth muscles. It is a carminative, which means it helps eliminate intestinal gas. Mentha piperita is found in Native RemediesDigestAssist for fast-acting relief.

  • Fennel seed (Foeniculum vulgare) - Fennel is another herb that is used to relieve spasm of the gastrointestinal tract, feelings of fullness, and Flatulence. In Germany, Fennel seed is licensed as a standard medical tea for dyspepsia. Fennel is also found in Native RemediesDigestAssist.

  • Gamma-oryzanol - Gamma-oryzanol is a natural substance isolated from rice bran oil. Studies have shown that it protects the mucus lining of the gastrointestinal tract by regulating nervous system control and exerts anti-oxidant activity. Clinically, gamma-oryzanol has been found to be effective in a broad range of gastrointestinal complaints, including irritable bowel.

  • Magnesium is a mineral that has been used widely for treating abdominal cramps and Constipation. It is obtained naturally from the diet, and is required for many metabolic activities in the body. Absorption of magnesium is reduced by high intake of calcium, alcohol, surgery, diuretics, liver or Kidney Disease, and oral contraceptive use. Fatigue, fibromyalgia, Migraine, Premenstrual Syndrome, and dysmenorrhea are conditions associated with magnesium deficiency. Women with Premenstrual Syndrome who were found to have low magnesium were more likely to have excess sensitivity to pain with generalized aches and pains. Magnesium is an ingredient found in many of Native Remedies’ treatments for a wide range of conditions, such as RealHeal for pain and healing; Serenite-LT for Insomnia; Triple Complex Sleep Tonic which is SAFE for ALL; Triple Complex Nerve Tonic for Anxiety and panic and is SAFE for ALL!

  • Identify and remove food intolerances - Many foods can be removed from your diet for a brief period of time, and then re-introduced sequentially to isolate your body’s reaction to the offending foods. Food sensitivities are behind many digestive disorders. For example, between 33% and 66% of sufferers report having one or more food intolerances, resulting in Bloating, gas, and pain. The most common culprits are milk, dairy and grains.

  • Improve gut motility - Soluble fiber increases bowel transit and stools and relieves Constipation. Increase your dietary fiber intake with good sources of fiber such as Dried fruit, such as dates, figs, prunes, apples, beans, legumes and ground flaxseeds. Psyllium is a good source of soluble fiber and is readily available. Sufficient water should be taken or fiber can have the opposite effect and result in greater Constipation. Dandelion root (Taraxacum officinale) is licensed in Germany as a standard medicinal tea to treat distension, Flatulence, dyspepsia, lack of appetite, and other digestive complaints. Native RemediesNatural Moves contains Dandelion for treating chronic and occasional Constipation and other digestive complaints and disorders such as IBS.

  • Get enough water – insufficient water intake is a primary cause of Constipation. Constipation then causes an imbalance in bacteria, promotes inflammation of the intestinal lining, and can even lead to the absorption of larger molecules, a condition known as Leaky Gut. Leaky Gut can further lead to inflammation, fatigue, food Allergies, and Arthritis. Native RemediesCandidate helps to relieve digestive disorders like Indigestion, gas, Heartburn and Leaky Gut Syndrome.

  • Restore a healthy balance of bacteria in the gut - Increase good gut bacteria - Not all bacteria is bad. There are over 400 different kinds of bacteria and yeasts in the digestive system. Of these, the bacteria Lactobacillus Acidophillus and Bifidobacterium bifidum are considered good “probiotic” bacteria because they can help to maintain intestinal health and restore healthy balance of bacteria in the gut. They can decrease the amount of bacteria with gas-producing abilities and relieve symptoms such as abdominal distension and Flatulence. Bifidobacterium acts as a barrier against colonization of the gastrointestinal tract by pathogenic bacteria, and lactobacillus inhibits the attachment of pathogens onto the intestinal mucus lining.

  • Pancreatic enzymes help to inhibit the growth of bacteria in the small intestine. They help to improve protein digestion. Goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis) also inhibits bacteria, and prevents the conversion of Proteins to vasoactive amines.

Symptoms vary from person to person and are more common among women, but anyone can get and experience digestive problems and disorders. Many digestive problems are also associated with non-gastrointestinal conditions such as headache, low back pain, Arthritis, non-cardiac chest pain, difficult urination and fibromyalgia. Anxiety, hostile feelings, sadness, Depression, and sleep disturbances are also associated with IBS and other digestive problems. Sometimes stress and certain foods can worsen symptoms, although they do not cause digestive problems.

Native Remedies offers PureCalm for Anxiety, panic, stress and Tension; MindSoothe for Depression; MiGone Plus for Headaches and Migraines; JointEase Plus for Arthritis, fibromyalgia, back and joint pain; SerenitePlus and Serenite-LT for Insomnia and sleep problems.

Misunderstandings about diseases and problems that affect the digestive system still exist. However, these misunderstanding and myths can be dangerous if it keeps you from correctly preventing or treating an illness.

As part of Digestive Diseases Awareness Month in May, read up on these interesting common misconceptions and Digestive Disease Myths and factual follow-ups:

Myth # 1: Crohn’s disease is contagious.

False Crohn’s disease is not contagious. The cause of Crohn’s disease is unknown. Although diet may affect the symptoms in patients with Crohn’s disease, it is unlikely that diet is responsible for the disease.

Myth # 2: Inflammatory bowel disease is caused by psychological problems.

False Inflammatory bowel disease is the general name for two diseases that cause inflammation in the intestines, Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis. The cause of the disease is unknown, but researchers speculate that it may be a virus or bacteria interacting with the body’s Immune System.

Myth # 3: Spicy food and stress cause stomach ulcers.

False Truth is, almost all stomach ulcers are caused either by infection with a bacterium called Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) or by use of pain medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or naproxen, the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). NSAID-induced ulcers can be cured with time, stomach-protective medications, antacids, and avoidance of NSAIDs. Spicy food and stress may aggravate ulcer symptoms in some people, but they do not cause ulcers.

Myth # 4: Smoking a cigarette helps relieve Heartburn.

False Actually, cigarette smoking contributes to Heartburn. Heartburn occurs when the lower esophageal sphincter -a muscle between the esophagus and stomach-relaxes, allowing the acidic contents of the stomach to splash back into the esophagus. Cigarette smoking causes the LES to relax.

Myth # 5: Bowel regularity means a bowel movement every day.

False The frequency of bowel movements among normal, healthy people varies from three a day to three a week, and perfectly healthy people may fall outside both ends of this range.

Myth # 6: Habitual use of enemas to treat Constipation is harmless.

False The truth is, habitual use of enemas is not harmless. Over time, enemas can impair the natural muscle action of the intestines, leaving them unable to function normally. An ongoing need for enemas is not normal; you should see a doctor if you find yourself relying on them or any other medication to have a bowel movement.

Myth # 7: Celiac disease is a rare childhood disease.

False Celiac disease affects children and adults. At least 1 in 1,000 people and, in some populations, 1 in 200 people have celiac disease. Most often, celiac disease first causes symptoms during childhood, usually diarrhea, growth failure, and failure to thrive. But the disease can also first cause symptoms in adults. These symptoms may be vague and therefore attributed to other conditions. Symptoms can include Bloating, diarrhea, abdominal pain, skin rash, anemia, and thinning of the bones (osteoporosis). Celiac disease may cause such nonspecific symptoms for several years before being correctly diagnosed and treated.

People with celiac disease should not eat any foods containing gluten, a protein in wheat, rye, barley, and possibly oats, regardless of whether or not they have symptoms. In these people, gluten destroys part of the lining of the small intestine, which interferes with the absorption of nutrients. The damage can occur from even a small amount of gluten, and not everyone has symptoms of damage.

Myth # 8: Diverticulosis is an uncommon and serious problem.

False Actually, the majority over age 60 have Diverticulosis, but only a small percentage have symptoms or complications. Diverticulosis is a condition in which little sacs-or out-pouchings-called diverticula, develop in the wall of the colon. These tend to appear and increase in number with age. Most people do not have symptoms and would not know that they had diverticula unless x-ray or intestinal examination were done. Less than 10% of people with Diverticulosis ever develop complications such as infection (Diverticulitis), bleeding, or perforation of the colon.

Myth # 9: Irritable Bowel Syndrome is one of the least common ailments of the bowel (intestines).

False Actually, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is one of the most common ailments of the bowel (intestines) and affects an estimated 15%. Some of the symptoms of IBS are nausea, vomiting, abdominal Bloating, abdominal distention diarrhea and Constipation.

Digestion is a natural process; therefore, you should treat all digestive problems and disorders naturally and effectively. Native Remedies provides to you many different 100% natural, safe and effective treatment options for digestive disorders and problems and other health issues that are affecting you and your family.

Natural Cures for Indigestion, Heartburn, and Nausea

June 10th, 2006

When I think of Indigestion, Heartburn and nausea, the popular ad campaign for Pepto Bismol with the dancing symptoms starts playing in my head. Then the pink chalky residue comes to mind, ew. So what is a natural health girl to do when she has a stomach ache? Consult the herbalists and Alternative Medicine gurus, of course.

The main symptoms of Indigestion include abdominal pain, a burning feeling in the upper abdomen, nausea, Heartburn, Bloating, Belching, vomiting and Flatulence. Sounds like a good time, eh? Please do consult with your Alternative Medicine practitioner if you have a chronic problem, but if it is just the occasional malady, here are a few Natural Remedies that may help:

Indigestion Prevention – Drink a mixture of one teaspoon Ginger and two tablespoons baking soda in cold water before eating to avoid Indigestion altogether.

Bananas – Ripe bananas are actually natural antacids that help to soothe the lining of your stomach. I guess that is why pediatricians often recommend them when the little ones are not feeling well.

Cider Vinegar or Lemon Juice – Add either of these to hot water and drink to alkalize the acid in your stomach if you do not have a banana handy.

Tea – The following Teas are excellent for indigestion: Ginger, Peppermint, Fennel, Lemon Balm, Cinnamon, Slippery Elm powder.

Why water=bad with a meal – Yes, the glass is on the table at dinner, but you shouldn’t drink while eating according to experts. Water can dilute the gastric acid in your stomach which causes Indigestion.

Managing and Preventing Motion Sickness

June 9th, 2006

Most of us look forward to a little time out from everyday life and work to recharge. To just relax and enjoy life with family and friends - whether during the summer time, special holiday or vacation at any time of the year. Do you experience nausea, dizziness, or vertigo in response to real or perceived movement?

Motion Sickness is one of the most frequent medical problems encountered by travelers and others alike. Anyone can get Motion Sickness and most people have experienced it at one time or another. Some individuals seem to be naturally prone to Motion Sickness since childhood. The condition is commonly associated with various modes of travel, such as by car, plane, or ship. However, Motion Sickness also can result from perceived movement.

Motion Sickness, and its derivatives, is the general overall feeling of illness that some people experience in response to certain kinds of movement. Motion Sickness happens when your brain receives conflicting information from different body systems that help you maintain your sense of balance and equilibrium. Your brain relies on information from multiple body systems to balance itself and establish equilibrium.

Your inner ears send signals to your brain telling you that you are moving while your eyes send signals telling you that you are standing still. When the body receives conflicting information from these systems, the brain struggles to make sense of it. The result is that you feel nauseated and dizzy and experience Motion Sickness.

Certain conditions that may increase your risk of experiencing Motion Sickness include:

  • pregnancy and menstruation
  • illness or poor health
  • a hangover
  • being overly tired

Also, any medications that list nausea or vomiting as potential side effects, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), estrogens, or antiobiotics, may make Motion Sickness symptoms more likely.

If travel or other activities make you feel dizzy, nauseous, or sick in other ways and you feel better once you stop moving or doing the activity, than you probably have Motion Sickness.

Evidence suggests that Motion Sickness affects as many as:

  • 33%-50% of passengers on a plane flight with heavy turbulence
  • 100% of cruise ship passengers in rough seas and rough conditions
  • Approximately 28% of passengers traveling by bus

AND….

Read on to learn about the symptoms, causes, prevention, treatment and management to stop motion and Travel Sickness in its tracks.

Symptoms Associated with Motion Sickness

The most commom symptoms of Motion Sickness include dizziness, nausea, and vomiting.

The symptoms of Motion Sickness may range from mild to completely incapacitating, depending on your susceptibility in experiencing the symptoms and the duration of the activity that is causing the symptoms.

Motion Sickness usually makes you feel dizzy and nauseous but you also can have other symptoms, such as vomiting, drowsiness, rapid breathing, headache, pallor, Sweating, lightheadedness, increased salivation, flushed skin, and even Depression.

People suffering from Motion Sickness also may experience:

  • fatigue
  • sleepiness
  • cold Sweat
  • weakness
  • pale skin
  • headache
  • increased salivation
  • rapid breathing
  • difficulty concentrating
  • frequent yawning
  • buzzing sensation
  • Depression/apathy
  • sensations of body warmth
  • panic

Symptoms such as awareness of your upper abdomen, dizziness, headache, increased temperature, nausea, pallor, Sweat, and vomiting can take the fun out of flying in an airplane, riding on a bus, riding in a car, riding on a roller coaster, sailing in a boat, and traveling by train.

Causes of Motion Sickness

Feeling Anxious - Do you ever feel anxious or fearful before traveling?

Many people are afraid of feeling sick while traveling. Unfortunately, fear and/or Anxiety about movement can increase your risk of Motion Sickness and even make it worse. Preventive strategies may help you feel cool, calm, and collected in the face of fearsome triggers.

Environmental and Behavioral Factors - Which biological factors worsen your symptoms?

You need to recognize the environmental and behavior factors that contribute to your Motion Sickness symptoms. Knowing that bumpy movements, fast speeds, poor ventilation, sudden, jerky movements, and swerving, winding movements aggravate your symptoms is the first step in treating your condition.

Do your best to minimize environmental factors and avoid behaviors that contribute to Motion Sickness like long, rough, jerky and bumpy rides during travel; impaired visibility; poor ventilation; strong or unpleasant order; eating a large meal; eating dairy or spicy, greasy, or salty foods; drinking alcohol; smoking; reading; anticipating movement; and sitting in areas prone to greater movement during travel such as back of the plane, near the front of a boat, etc..

Types of activities that can cause you to experience symptoms of motion sickness:

  • Flying in an airplane
  • Riding on a bus
  • Riding in a car
  • Riding in an elevator
  • Riding on a roller coaster
  • Riding on “virtual reality” simulators
  • Sailing in a boat
  • Staying on a cruise ship
  • Surfing
  • Traveling by train
  • Watching movies

Biological factors than can worsen your symptoms of motion sickness:

  • Anxiety
  • An empty stomach
  • A long-term medical condition
  • A short-term illness
  • Medication
  • Menstrual cycle
  • My mind
  • Pregnancy

There are a variety of effective techniques for managing and preventing motion and Travel Sickness and making travel, or perceived movement, more comfortable and enjoyable for you and your family.

Strategies for Managing and Preventing Motion Sickness

Prevention is the best treatment for Motion Sickness. Dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and other symptoms associated with Motion Sickness are difficult to alleviate once they have set in.

A good rule is to try the simplest strategies first such as alternative treatments and self-help. There are a variety of behavioral interventions and alternative treatments to help you manage Motion Sickness.

Motion Sickness Prevention Self-Help Checklist

  1. Minimize Triggers Do your best to avoid or minimize factors that may aggravate your Motion Sickness symptoms. Seek out areas of lesser movement on a boat or plane, such as a cabin in the middle of a ship or a seat near the airplane wing. Use a headrest and face forward while traveling. Focus on far away stationary objects, such as the horizon. Seek out fresh air and avoid unpleasant odors.

  2. Eat and Drink Well Avoid greasy, salty, and spicy foods, as well as dairy, before travel or the activity that triggers your symptoms. Alcohol and smoking can make your symptoms worse. If you’re prone to fear and Anxiety, practice deep breathing or other relaxation exercises to help ward off your symptoms.

  3. Follow Any Medication Instructions Closely If you take an Alternative Remedy to prevent your symptoms, remember to take it approximately 1 hour before travel or exposure to some other trigger.

General advice for avoiding motion sickness:

  1. Eat a light meal no less than 3 hrs. before exposure
  2. Avoid dairy products and foods high in protein, calories, or sodium before exposure
  3. Avoid alcohol, smoking, and disagreeable odors
  4. Increase ventilation or exposure to cool, fresh air
  5. Avoid visual stimuli (eg, reading, watching videos)
  6. Focus on a stable horizon or external object
  7. Limit head movements (eg, press head into headrest)
  8. Stay in central location on boat or in airplane
  9. Sit in front seat of car or drive rather than be a passenger
  10. Lie in supine position

Common Treatments for Motion Sickness

  1. Acupressure bands place continuous pressure on the inside of your wrist preventing the symptoms of Motion Sickness.
  2. Herbal Supplements such as Ginger and Peppermint have been proven to be effective in alleviating and treating symptoms of Motion Sickness.
  3. Psychological and behavioral interventions that may help you beat Motion Sickness include cognitive behavioral therapy, progressive muscle relaxation, diaphragmatic breathing, and habituation.

Alternative Treatments

Research indicates that the following non-medication alternative therapies may be helpful in reducing Motion Sickness symptoms:

  • Ginger (Zingiber officinalis). Modern research confirms its effectiveness in relieving the symptoms of nausea, vomiting, Indigestion, Flatulence and dizziness. Working mainly in the digestive tract, Zingiber boosts digestive fluids and neutralizes acids, making it an effective alternative to anti-nausea medication, but without the usual unpleasant side effects. Compounds in Ginger help calm the stomach by relaxing the intestinal tract. Zingiber has strong anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties and is also used to treat Arthritis and other inflammatory diseases. Found in Native RemediesCanTravel Motion Sickness remedy.

  • Acupressure. This gentle, needle-free alternative to acupuncture may reduce nausea and vomiting associated with Motion Sickness. Applying pressure approximately two finger-widths below the inside of the wrist has been suggested to provide relief. Several elastic wristbands are commercially available that stimulate these points when worn.

  • Peppermint and Black Horehound. Mint has been used for centuries to relieve Indigestion, nausea and Heartburn. Modern research has demonstrated its effectiveness in soothing the symptoms of Diverticulosis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and other digestive disorders. Mentha piperita is widely cultivated for medicinal uses and also has anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic properties. It relaxes the muscles of the digestive tract and stimulates the flow of natural digestive juices and bile, thereby assisting healthy digestion. Mint is also an active ingredient in Native RemediesCanTravel Motion Sickness remedy.

Motion Sickness is an exceedingly common disorder. Appropriate management should be based on your personal characteristics and the type and length of the exposure and should include general preventive and management techniques. Education for you about the causes of Motion Sickness and how to prevent it can alleviate Anxiety and enhance your enjoyment of travel and recreation.

Do not let the discomfort of Motion Sickness disrupt your travel plans. Motion Sickness can be prevented and you and you family can enjoy your exciting travels in the best of health!

Aromatherapy For Nausea and Motion Sickness

May 31st, 2006

You are all packed and ready to go. The excitement of the long awaited day has begun. Everyone is in their seats and next thing you know “little Emily” says she is not feeling well. She has a lot of nausea and the car has barely started to move yet.

Several things to check and to help with Motion Sickness and nausea include:

Did the person eat a little bit or a lot before getting into the car? Sometimes not eating can cause Motion Sickness too.

One of our sons, always got Car Sick if he didn’t have something to eat, especially in the morning. We usually had to give him a bite to eat before we could take the family out for breakfast!!

Can the person see out in front of the car? For some people, sitting in the part of the car where they can not see the road ahead can make them feel sick to the stomach.

If these things are fine and Motion Sickness and nausea are still present, the number one Essential Oil is a little bit of Ginger . Simply inhale a drop or two of Ginger placed on a tissue or placed in an Inhaler. Some people will respond better to Peppermint or Spearmint. For some Roman Chamomile gives relief.

For those that suffer from chronic Motion Sickness you may want to try breathing in any one oil or a blend of a couple of the above Essential Oils BEFORE getting into the car, train, boat or plane. Inhaling these 30 - 60 minutes before departure and every 15 to 30 minutes while on your trip may make a world of difference in you enjoying your trip.

Other Essential Oils that might help with nausea include Coriander, Cardamom and Fennel . Since each person has different preference and chemical makeup, you may need to do a trial with each of these oils separately (and the ones listed above too) to find out which one or a combination of a couple seem to give you the best relief before and while traveling.

If you get to the point of vomiting you might want to try this recipe.

Basil - 1 drops Peppermint - 1 drop Lavender - 1 drop 2 teaspoons of a Carrier Oil

Mix the oils together in the Carrier Oil, then rub your hands together to warm the oil. Gently massage over the abdomen, afterwards you may want to cup your hands over your face (nose and mouth) and slowly inhale for a few breaths before washing your hands.

Motion Sickness Blend for nausea

Roman Chamomile - 10 drops Ginger - 10 drops Peppermint e 10 drops

Blend all Essential Oils in an amber bottle. Simply breath a few drops from a tissue or use a Personal Inhaler. Inhale 30-60 minutes before departure and also every few minutes while traveling.
