How do I control my acid reflux, burning acid, stomach/digestion disturbances such as more constipation?
This can be an increase in inflammation higher up in the GI tract. Slower bowel motility can be like a “tug of war” with any infections that were found on your testing. It is important to make sure you have a bowel movement at least daily. Some easy things to do are:
*Stay hydrated – drink if you are thirsty
*Magnesium Citrate or magnesium oxide – increase 200-400mg daily until bowel tolerance is reached. Divided doses during the day work best.
*Vitamin C (ascorbic acid forms are best) – add 1,000 milligrams every day until bowel tolerance is reached. The goal is to reduce over time
*‘Smooth move’ tea before bed
