Exactly what is "gastroparesis"?


Mon, 24 Jul 2000 03:00:00 GMT

My psoas is continually going out of whack.
Is it radiculaopathy associated with my degenerative arithritis
in T7 thru T10, my diabetes, or my tertiary neuroborreliosis?

Answer:  depends on the weather.  <G>.
Weather alters my mood.
My mood changes my eating pattern.
My eating pattern, if I sit on my dumbells,
 exacerbates my arthritis.
If it's cold, then it's my arhtirits.
If it's hot, then its the neuroborreliosis.
If it's not hot or cold, then it's all my fault!

If gastroparesis truely means paralysis of the gastro intestinal tract, I
can understand what could be happening.  Often, when I am worse, I
experience a loss of muscle tone and general muscle weakness.  This includes
weakness of the involuntary muscles of the gastro intestinal tract.  

For this I usually treat the underlying problem causing weakness, i.e.,
treat the infection with antibiotics, etc.  and use a few herbs such as
echinacea in a high dosage or something else fibrous such as flax seed
in capsules or such to stimulate the intestinal tract.  Also, drink a lot
of liquids and eat lots of vegetables and fruit.  

By restoring the muscle tone and adding extra fiber, the problem corrects

Oh, one more thing I forgot to mention.  Exercise also helps in restoring
the gastro intestinal muscle tone--at least, after treating the infection
causing the problem in the first place.
