Stomach Problems

There are many reasons and factors for stomach problems which I will elucidate herein, but before we get to the causes and effect and the solutions or remedies for stomach problems, let us first get a basic understanding of what the stomach is and what it does. http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg

One should not be so surprised that stomach problems are rampant in people today, especially in the Western world. No other nation of people has the high incidence of stomach problems like Americans.

When you consider the Standard American Diet, hectic work schedules, fast-paced lifestyles, and level of negative emotions (i.e. anger, hatred, frustration, worry, bitterness, etc.) we carry and execute every single day of our lives, it's plain to see why stomach problems are rampant.

Causes

Clearly diet, a poor diet, plays a pivotal role in stomach problems and disorders. Take meat (dead, slaughtered animal flesh) for example. Meat is too rough and tough on the stomach. It's hard for the acids in the stomach to digest meat. And while humans do have protease, an enzyme that breaks down protein, this protease was meant to break down natural protein which would be plant-based sources of protein, not dead slaughtered animal flesh that you call meat under its many umbrella terms, i.e. chicken, beef, lamb, pork, etc., that many people erroneously believe is a source of protein. Cooked animal flesh is NOT protein. You cannot cook a dead animal and get protein. When the animal is first killed and its flesh is raw, you have protein; but when you cut it up into different body part pieces and cook (alter) it, you don't have protein anymore. What you have is a serious poison to the body that greatly taxes the stomach and intestines.

Meat sits in the stomach and colon for days and just rots and putrefies allowing worms and parasites to enter into the body.

Meat breaks down into uric acid and this is not good for the stomach, which is already acidic by nature. Eating meat adds more acid to the stomach.

And then you eat some liquid meat called dairy.Milk is another protein by definition that is processed and altered. Dairy products (milk, sour cream, ice cream, butter, and yogurt) convert into lactic acid inside the body. This occurs in the stomach. But remember, the stomach is already acidic.

Acid reflux is an attempt to remove the excess acid by making the acid go back up the stomach. Acid reflux burns (inflammation) because that's what acid naturally does.

Dyspepsia is an intestinal disorder and plays a role in the cause of peptic ulcers, gallbladder disease and chronic appendicitis.

Stomach bloat

A bloated stomach is a condition most females can identify with, whether they're pregnant or on their menstrual cycle. Men too can identify with bloated sensations or feelings, especially if they love ice cream. Dairy products cause a severe bloated sensation and flatulence.

Effervescent beverages like soda pop outright kill the stomach and colon. Soda pop is just too acidic. Wine, beer, alcohol and other spirits (evil spirits in bottles) also kill the stomach and colon.

Eating too fast

When we chew food too fast, we also cause stomach problems. Eating on the run and trying to eat within a 30-60 minute lunch break wreaks havoc on the stomach and colon. Instead of chewing our food 30-60 times, we only chew our food 5-10 times before we swallow.

Americans are binge eaters, especially females, due to lack of love on the deepest levels of existence. Lack of natural love is made up or substituted with food.

Many people (especially females) are in unhealthy relationships that are very stressful (and that they can't stomach), which in turn causes stomach problems.

Stress is very damaging. You should always avoid stress. Stress is a sign that something is not right in your life. Stress is not natural. Stress is one of the many negative emotions that destroy mental, spiritual and emotional joy and happiness.

Stress, anger, hatred, worry, envy, jealousy, and bitterness are no good for the stomach. These negative emotions (energies) shut down the pleasure principle (Second chakra).

The Dangers of Commercial Antacids

Over-the-counter antacids have calcium, but it's inorganic, meaning it can't be digested and absorbed into the body.

According to the Handbook of Over-The-Counter Drugs (1992) by GW Manning, Every year Americans spend millions of dollars on medical products to relieve acid indigestion and heartburn from periodic bouts of overeating and drinking.

Manning goes on to state the following: It seems you can hardly watch television or pick up a magazine without seeing an ad of some kind for an antacid product that claims to do wonders for indigestion. With lifestyles the way they are, eating on the run is a part of everyday living, and indigestion is the unwelcome fringe benefit. Medical statistics show that over twenty million Americans suffer daily from heartburn and these are the heaviest antacid users. Another one third of the population experiences occasional symptoms.

Manning also offers the following statement, antacid sales continue to show a healthy increase in sales, about five percent a year. That amounts to hundreds of millions of dollars annually, making antacids the fourth largest OTC (over-the-counter) category. Ibid, pg. 295

Most brands contain not only harmful inorganic calcium, but also contain inorganic magnesium, aluminum (culprit in Alzheimer's disease); and aspirin (which breaks down into acetic acid which literally burns a hole through the intestinal walls and also causes ulcers).

Antacids contain magnesium and aspirin because of the headaches that are generally caused by or associated with acid indigestion or heartburn.

The Headache-Stomach Problem Connection

Many headaches are in fact bilious headaches and are thus caused by extreme acidosis. Bilious headaches result when there's too much acid in the digestive system and the gallbladder releases the green, bitter gall substance, which is very alkaline. This is the body's natural attempt to counteract the acid in the digestive tract. Bile is the body's natural antacid. When you pass or defecate out dark green colored stools, this is a sign that you ate something very acidic in the past that taxed your system to the point that excess bile had to be released in an attempt to restore harmony in the digestive tract.

Many headaches are caused by stomach and intestinal (colon) problems, which is why you really have to keep your colon clean and conditioned.

Healing for Stomach Problems

Any good natural laxative and herbal bitter will help heal stomach problems. Good herbs for the stomach (and liver) are usually orange and yellow in color, i.e. Cascara Sagrada, Goldenseal, Bayberry, Tumeric, Ginger, etc.

Laxative herbs such as Cascara, Senna, Rhubarb, Aloe Vera resin, and Buckthorn will greatly help heal the stomach and intestines. Laxative herbs induce evacuation of the bowels.

Carminatives are excellent for stomach problems. Carminatives are herbs that normalize digestive system peristalsis to relieve flatulence (gas) and include Anise Seed, Cayenne Pepper, Licorice, Basil, Cardamom Seed, Ginger Root, Cinnamon and Caraway. Carminatives are great as after dinner teas.

To eradicate stomach spasms, take antispasmodic herbs. Antispasmodic herbs are muscle relaxant herbs that relieve cramping and spasms and include Cramp Bark, Black Haw, Lady's Slipper (very expensive due to being rare); Wild Yam, Chamomile and Valerian Root.

Alkalizing the body via diet (consumption of raw, green foods) greatly helps in eradicating stomach problems, especially where there is excess acid.

The crystal Carnelian is a great stomach stone. Carnelian's beautiful bright to dark orange color resonates with the stomach energy. The color of the Second chakra is orange. Our stomach emits an orange color and also resonates with the D tone. The color orange and the D-tone (vibration) opens the Second chakra, which in turn helps to balance our emotions predicated at this energy site. An elixir made of Carnelian is great to take for all stomach complaints and disorders. Carnelian fosters strength, hence intestinal fortitude.

Essential oils of Ginger, Peppermint and/or Wintergreen are excellent for stomach disorders. They work like a charm and bring near instant results. Simply rub a carrier oil (i.e. Olive, Castor, Almond, or Grape Seed oil) into your stomach and massage 1-3 drops of one of the essential oils supra into your stomach area. Do the same thing with the bottom or soles of your feet, this time using 3-5 drops on your soles.

How To Save $100 and Save The Planet From Deforestation

Deforestation is a HUGE problem that affects every single living being on this planet. It is estimated that about 36 football fields of forest are cleared every minute! The effect of chopping, bulldozing, and burning these forests is felt on a global scale, as this process is responsible for about 20 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. This process is also largely detrimental to the animals that call these forests home. With every forest clearing, we lose about 135 different species of plants, animals, and insects.

While deforestation may seem like a problem that is just too big for you to make a difference, that is simply not true. By and large, deforestation is driven by consumers. Palm oil and paper production rank among the top drivers of deforestation. So while it is not good that many of the products we buy and use everyday are inadvertently funding deforestation, there is a lot that you can do to help end this disaster.

12 Million Misdiagnoses Occur Yearly in U.S.

The researchers caution that since their study likely did not capture all types of diagnosis errors that the true rate of misdiagnoses could be much higher.

At least one in 20 U.S. adults, or 12 million people yearly, may be misdiagnosed when they go to see their doctors, a new study suggests.

What's more, researchers estimated that about half of these diagnosis errors could lead to serious harm, such as when doctors fail to follow up on "red flags" for cancer in patients who are ultimately diagnosed with the condition.
