  • When you gotta go

    I have had constipation for a very long time! I've tried everything over the counter, prescriptions and have not found anything that words are except for and I've gotten to where I do it once a week I take anywhere from 6 to 8 laxative pills. When I wake up and I feel like I have to go I will do an enema before I go. Hold it in as long as you can and then it will be like floodgates opening and it will make you feel so much better. It's horrible that I have to go through that every week....

    Blood in my poop when I eat spicy foods

    I am 33, male, no medications or medical conditions. in the last 4-6 months. Every time I eat food that has a moderate spice level (hot sauce, spicy wings). I have blood in poop. It's not painful just present. This also happens if I take Aleve for more than two days and ibuprofen for more than 3 days. it clears up after a day. But it is like clock work. I feel fine otherwise. I rarely eat meat and do not drink or smoke anything.

    Vomiting After Eating Meat

    My son is 7 years old, active, healthy weight, healthy cognition, etc... When he was about 10 months old I stopped exclusively breastfeeding him and introduced him to solids per usual. We ate a non-processed plant-based diet in his first two years and slowly started introducing animal proteins into his diet after that. He doesn't have any allergies that we are aware of, but every time he eats ANY red meat or poultry, he immediately has stomach pain and he vomits within seconds (no exaggeration....

    Cure for acid stomach and reflux GERD

    I suffered from GERD for over 50 years and now it is completely gone. I never suspected bread to be the main source of GERD. Now I know it is bread, flour products, corn, potatoes, and rice. They all convert to sugars. Eating a lot of vegetables with protein completely removed GERD, ulcers, arthritis pain, regained my memory, put Crohn’s in remission, stopped swelling of my leg identified as Dr Behset syndrome, and stopped Vertigo and dizziness. Interesting that finally I was able to understand how....

    Occult Test Ordered

    Past couple of years I've had loose stool; diet is not great and lots of coffee. I've had blood engrained in pieces of my stool.. typically 1 piece out of the many in the bowl. It is fresh blood.. no pain. The clinic doctor has me doing an occult blood test from 3 separate stools. He assures me itll find blood if it is there. My question is: if I only have blood in my stool
