The problem of gastroparesis is also referred to as “Delayed Gastric Emptying”. Diabetes, abdominal surgery, damage to the vagus nerve or the lining of the stomach, viral infection, stomach flu and smoking are the various factors responsible for this disorder.
Common symptoms of gastroparesis include nausea, puking, heartburn, gastroesophagal reflux, loss of appetite, abdominal bloating and pain. Different natural cures can provide relief from the symptoms of this digestive disorder.
Natural Cures for Gastroparesis
A smoothie can be prepared by blending low fat blueberry yogurt (1/4th cup), blueberries (1/3rd cup), apple juice (1/4th cup) with ice cubes (4 to 5 ) and consumed on a daily basis to treat the problem.
Consumption of blueberry fruit or juice on a frequent basis can also provide the desired results. Fruit tarts and puddings prepared with the use of blueberries can also be consumed.
Ginger extract (2 teaspoons) and honey (1 teaspoon) can be added to a glass of warm water to make a natural tonic and consumed several times in a day to deal with the symptoms of gastroparesis. Intake of a drink made by diluting ginger juice with soda can also provide relief. Drinking a cup of ginger root tea 30 minutes before each meal can help in improving the digestion.
Consumption of fatty food items can slow down the process of digestion. An individual should consume low fat food items on a regular basis to treat various symptoms.
Consumption of fibrous food items should also be reduced to improve digestion. Intake of liquid and pureed food items can help in reducing the problem as these food items can be easily digested. Intake of proteins and whole grains should also be restricted.
Fruits and Vegetables
An individual can drink various fruit and vegetable juices such as apple, prune, cranberry, spinach, carrot and tomato juice on a frequent basis to deal with the problem. Consumption of food items containing applesauce, peaches, acorn squash, mushroom, potato and summer squash can also provide effective results. Papaya is highly effective in the treatment of gastroparesis. The anti-acidic properties of papaya can help in curing the heartburn and gastroesophagal reflux. The papaya should be consumed on a daily basis.
Vitamin B12 is also known as “Cobalamin”. The deficiency of vitamin B12 may result in the problem. Eating food items rich in vitamin B12 on a regular basis can help in improving the digestion and curing various symptoms associated with gastroparesis.
Vitamin B12 is found in milk, whey powder, egg, yeast extract, parmesan and mozarella cheese.
Low fat yogurt (1 small bowl) can be consumed with the breakfast every day to reduce the abdominal bloating. Blueberries or grapes can be added to yogurt to obtain more effective results. A mixture of yogurt and mashed banana can also be eaten multiple times in a week to regulate the movement of the food from the stomach to the small intestine. Intake of a natural drink prepared by blending yogurt and black salt with water several times in a day can also provide the desired results.
