A previously healthy, well-appearing 42-year-old female living in a modern, high-rise apartment in downtown Los Angeles calls 9-1-1 at 5:30 am complaining of worsening of a burning, epigastric pain she had been experiencing for the last three days. She reports associated nausea and non-bloody, non-bilious vomiting, and that she couldn’t manage to get comfortable in bed until she finally decided to call for help at daybreak. During her 9-1-1 call, she reports “pain, like heartburn, that just woke me up again and I had to throw up, … and then I was sweating so much.” Using the Los Angeles Tiered Disp...

Let’s take back control over personal health. Share this to expose healthcare for the corrupt enterprise it is. Imagine that you receive a letter in the mail stating “In order to retain your right to freedom of speech, you will be billed $10,000 per year every year for the rest of your life.” You would be—-understandably-—outraged. Freedom of speech in America is precious, something Americans have waged wars to defend, something we now view as a basic right, no financial price required to maintain it. It should be free and available to everyone regardless of religion, color, political leanin...

Opinion StatementChronic hyperglycemia is a well-known cause of gastrointestinal motility disorders extending from the esophagus to the anorectum. Even though little attention has been paid to esophageal disorders in the context of DM, its prevalence is higher compared to gastroparesis. Heartburn, as a typical symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), is the most prevalent symptom and has been found in 25 to 41% of patients with DM. Furthermore, DM has recently been established as possible independent factor for the development of Barrett ’s esophagus. The pathophysiology of esophageal disorders in patients ...

Conclusion This larger set of observational data finds that PPI drugs are associated with an increase in the risk of early death compared with either H2 blockers or no acid suppression drugs. This was the case for participants both with and without gastrointestinal problems. It also appears as though the longer the PPIs drugs are taken, the greater the risk of death. Considering that these drugs are widely used in the UK, these findings may cause concern. But the research has a number of important limitations: The study was conducted in a population of mostly white, older US male veterans, which might limit the abi...

Conclusion Hyperexcitability of T5 and T6 sympathetic preganglionic fibers appears to be the main etiology of LPR. SNEPI can reduce LES relaxation and improve blood flow to the mucosa, thereby increasing the stability of the vagus reflex and laryngopharyngeal mucosal defense factors. To the best of our knowledge, this case represents the first report of a patient with LPR refractory to PPIs who was successfully treated with SNEPI alone. SNEPI can be considered as an alternative to anti-reflux procedures. References 1. Vakil N, van Zanten SV, Kahrilas P, et al. Global Consensus Group. The Montreal definition and classificat...

I’ve heard this many times over the years: “I allow myself one cheat day a week.” Or “I allow myself a cheat every Friday night.” Or “I have a couple of slices of pizza every Saturday.” Or the comments from naysayers such as “A little bit can’t hurt” or “Everything in moderation.” I urge everyone to never cheat on the Wheat Belly Lifestyle. – Tweet this! It’s not because I’m a control freak or because I like to make arbitrary rules. There are many reasons to never allow yourself such a cheat. This has nothing to do with the few calori...
