Dear Angelica

Many thanks for your query.

I can most certainly consult with you on an individual basis to discuss your dietary requirements for GERD.

Please contact me on the following email address: melissa@thefoodexpert.co.za to discuss the matter further.

Kind regards,

Melissa

Dear N



Thank you for your question. Form the little information you provide it sounds like you may have an acid reflux problem or an incompetent valve between your oesophagus and stimach, allowing stomach acid to leak upwards. I would need to conduct a fool history and examination before I would confirm a diagnosis and offer any solutions.



You can contact me via www.healthnation.co.za for an appointment. In the interim try to reduce foods and drinks that increase stomach acid production (animal products, alcohol, smoking) and increase your intake of alkalising foods - i.e. green vegetables.



Many thanks and warm regards

Dear Y

Thank you for your question. It sounds like quite a complex constellation of symptoms. How do you know the pain is beginning in your left ovary? That is quite a specific statement - have you had a problem there before? From the symptoms you describe it could also be you left kidney. Without examining you it will be difficult for me to offer an opinion.

Use of antibiotics negatively impacts the helpful bacteria that occupy the membranes of the bladder, uterus, fallopian tubes and ureters. This can then lead to pain and discomfort in any of these organs. The first recommendation I can make is the addition of a good probiotic, usually one from the fridge section of your health store, which you should ideally use for at least 4-6 months. I would also steer clear of any further recommendations to use an antibiotic until you work to bolster you general level of immunity.

Secondly I would recommend reducing your intake of acid-forming foods, including red meat, sugar and artificial sweetener containing foods, white flour and preservatives. Thirdly I would ensure that you were taking in enough clean water.

I hope these tips help. If you need more specific information please make an appointment at 076-229-4662.

Many thanks and warm regards

Dear A

Thank you for your question. The symptoms you describe are suggestive of a difficulty breaking down the food you ingest into its basic components and then transporting those across your gut membrane into your blood stream. This could be due to IBS but there are a host of other conditions that may result in a similar clinical condition. Research "Leaky Gut Syndrome" for one of the more prevalent conditions in today's modern society.

With regards to treatment I would firstly suggest a proper consultation. Because of the various processes involved in the breakdown and absorption of your food there are several possible causes, each with a unique approach to management and treatment. As a general approach eliminating wheat and dairy are a step in the right direction. The addition of supplemental digestive enzymes may also be of use, as would the use of additional HCL. I would recommend a digestive acid tolerance test and then take it from there.

Please don't hesitate to contact us at healthnation.co.za for further information. Your digestive system is a key role player in your body and it is no surprise that you feel exhausted and anxious. If you aren't getting the appropriate nutritional building blocks for vibrant health then your body is unable to maintain a healthy balance.

Many thanks and warm regards

Yesheen
