Treating Stomach Problems

Monday, 17 December 2012 08:36 AM

My wife has been having chronic gastrointestinal pain, gas, and bloating. The doctor wants to prescribe antidepressants. What can she do?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

The solution to your wife’s condition might be a rather simple one. Depression is a diagnostic wastebasket used when physicians have no idea as to the cause of a condition.
The best way to evaluate such pains is to get a comprehensive stool analysis with examination for parasites. The most common conditions related to this include pathogenic overgrowth in the bowel, deficiency of short-chained fatty acids, yeast overgrowth, and insufficient digestive enzymes or stomach acid. The last condition can be solved by taking digestive enzymes and betadine HCL with each meal.
Poorly digested foods will create bloating and cramping. As we grow older, our digestive enzymes and stomach acid are reduced which can lead to digestive problems. Unfortunately, even GI specialists fail to diagnose these conditions — mainly because they never do a stool analysis.
