Treat Gastroparesis Naturally with Homeopathy

Gastroparesis is a condition in which the passage of food through the stomach becomes slower than usual. The primary cause for this is slow muscle movement of the stomach. As a result, there is delayed emptying of the stomach. Gastroparesis is also known as partial paralysis of the stomach.

Contractive pain in stomach extending to the chest is another characteristic feature. The above features are noted even from eating the simplest kind of food.

Causes and Risk Factors for Gastroparesis

The cause for gastroparesis is not yet known. It is thought that the main nerve that goes to the stomach (vagus nerve) and controls the emptying of the stomach gets affected under this condition. Usually, the muscle contractions of stomach propel the food into the small intestine. These muscle contractions are under the control of the vagus nerve. In any case of damage to the vagus nerve, the signal to stomach muscles gets disrupted, resulting in slow digestion. This causes the food to stay in the stomach for more than the usual time. Many risk factors predispose a person to gastroparesis, like taking certain medicines (like morphine, antidepressants), diabetes mellitus and hypothyroidism. Gastroparesis is also noted in certain medical conditions like Parkinson’s disease and scleroderma.

Symptoms of Gastroparesis

The main symptoms that arise in gastroparesis include a sensation of fullness in the stomach from eating even the slightest amount of food, abdominal bloating, nausea, vomiting of undigested food, low appetite, abdominal discomfort/ pain, and acid reflux/heartburn. Weight loss may attend the above features.

  9. My daughter has had three years of a sick stomach and was diagnosed with GERD and started omeprazole 40mg daily, got better and then much worse and received a cholecystectomy in Nov. 2020 after a HiDA scan Showed an ejection fraction rate of 22%. She again got better for a while and then the pain, nausea, and acid/bubbly feeling started again. She completed a gastric emptying study and retained 33% of the food after 4 hrs and was recently diagnosed with gastroparesis. I want to heal my daughter and give her a future if not taking prescription medication everyday. She is 12 y/o, 5’2” and 100lbs. She eats a low fat, low acid diet, although not always healthy choices she eats decent.

    • Gail Naegele says:

      I have been diagnosed with Gastroparesis and Parkinson’s disease (without the appropriate tests taken), though the symptoms seem to fit. (Plumbum Metallicum seemed quite to fit the symptoms of Parkinson’s but has produced vague results for trembling, cramps, and numb legs. Lycopodium has helped with the Gastroparesis, but nothing has aided the Constipation (called due to IBS) by a Gastroenterologist but NOTHING I can find gives much results for the CONSTIPATION, WHICH IS PROBLEMATIC CONSTANTLY AND HAS RESULTED IN DANGEROUS WEIGHT LOSS. hAVE tried Alumina, Nux, Plumbum, and anti-constipation drops from Professional formulas furiously, Can you please recommend another route. Thank you.
