Just a few points to take note:
🍃 There are plenty of support groups and other informative networks on different social media platforms.. So if you’re struggling or know someone else battling with similar symptoms but is undiagnosed.. Please feel free to connect in confidentiality.
🍃 On Facebook there’s a private group titled: Healing Gastroparesis naturally – if I’m not mistaken. It’s quite a while since I went into any of them.
This specific treatment is administered and monitored by a qualified lady in USA who blends certain essential oils to apply on different areas according to the range of GP symptoms. Not a cure, but a structured a program to follow step by step in order to make GP more bearable. One or two years ago she also released a booklet but I can’t recall the name.
🍃 If anyone has Gastroparesis friendly recipes according to the types of food I can eat as mentioned in chapter 10, kindly share. It’ll be much appreciated. My family members are always searching for new ideas to try and make the limited options I have more appetizing.
🍃 I also post regular updates on Instagram. For instance, if I’m on a new medication, or tried a specific treatment, or there’s a discussion going on, it’s a lot easier to follow the tips and tricks..
If you are on IG, request a follow to be up-to-date with all other chronic illness hacks. If I haven’t accepted or don’t accept, then please dm me stating who you are because I don’t accept requests from people I don’t recognize.
🍬 Some of the tips I shared and saved on the highlight section was about a brand of sugar free sweets called Caring Candies. Available at Dischem. They come in a variety of flavors such as lemon, peppermint, ginger, and liquorice. Great suckers to alleviate nausea.
🍫 I also shared a raw cacoa chocolate recipe with pure edible peppermint drops which assists digestion & has numerous other health benefits. If interested please shout out.
🍃 A little note on the awareness color designated: Green is also worn to represent mental health awareness. Whoever denoted this color was indeed, very wise!!
If you missed chapter https://kayborninmay.wordpress.com/2018/01/26/27-seedlings-of-happiness/ pertaining to gardening, I mentioned; greenery is among the 3 things which remove sadness.
📣 Last but not least I have to give a shoutout and credit to a special soul sister for being at my side throughout the entire rollercoaster ride of life with Gastroparesis and these Gastroparesis posts.
In fact, when Gastroparesis month set in she was first to share facts for awareness before I could post about it or do a write up 💚💙
And if she thought I forgot (knowing my forgetfulness well) then she’d give a gentle reminder to put it on my calender or to-do list 📃
I’m convinced it was through the acceptance of her beautiful and apt prayers that I was finally able to publish these posts after hitting many blank and dead ends. Writers block kicked in because circumstances are a bit of a hustle and bustle. When the mind is too crammed and preoccupied, it’s difficult to present a clear flow of thoughts across.
Sometimes I’d start, in between dizziness or brain fog stepped in and I had to stop. Revving back into action thereafter, took a while. She saw all the ups, downs, twists, and turns.
So my heartfelt appreciation to her for all the unlimited support and being a part of these posts turning out the way it did 💚💙
Here under are a few detailed compilation of Gastroparesis facts regarding pharmaceutical medication and feeding tubes.
The medication I take has already been explained in chapter 10 & 136
