Watch your portions when healing GERD

Gut health is a major issue – 60 to 70 million Americans have digestive diseases. I’m super passionate about this topic and it’s finally time for me to share my healing methods with you.

I started bicycling in 2008, and started losing a lot of weight. Part of my diet plan was to stop eating at all after about 3pm.

But I’m not abusing my digestive tract by making it work too hard. Some folks, like my husband, have a stomach of steel and can eat fruit after meals and mix grains with protein. If you have any GI issues I recommend talking with your GI doctor about what is healthiest for you and whether there are certain food combinations you should avoid. Put your digestion first.

Chronic damage to the oesophagus from reflux may also lead to stricture formation and complaints of difficulty swallowing. Esophagitis is however, surprisingly, not universal among bulimic patients, with one study of 37 bulimic patients revealing that 23 did not exhibit oesophageal pathology on endoscopy.

This time the outcome has not been so good. The GI doctor I saw prescribed two different medications. I was having bad reaction to the medicine and felt the only thing the GI doctor was doing was medicating me.

Heartburn, gas, bloating, early fullness, nausea, abdominal distention, rectal pain, constipation or diarrhea might be considered simply “irritable bowel syndrome” – potentially delaying rapid diagnosis and treatment of an underlying eating disorder. Often referred to as functional gut disorders, there is an impairment in the body’s normal “functioning,” such as delayed movement of food through the digestive tract, hypersensitivity of intestinal nerve cells, and the way in which a person’s brain responds to these stimuli (1).

Complications That Arise From Binge Eating Disorder

Hi all! I started this thread a year ago. I haven’t logged in for months and imagine my surprise to randomly log in today and see so many people commenting!!!!

Can GERD caused by bulimia be cured?

AN commonly develops in young women, with a prevalence rate in this population of 0.3 % [2 ]. The mortality rate of AN is 5.1 % per decade [3 ], which is the highest among mortality rates for stress-related disorders. AN patients frequently present with associated psychiatric disorders such as depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and personality disorder [4 ]. They also show several types of cognitive dysfunction, including cognitive inflexibility [5 , 6 , 7 ], impaired decision making [8 , 9 ], reward-processing disturbance, and altered interoceptive awareness [10 ]. In many cases, AN patients are resistant to treatment.
