I'm hoping at least one other mama has dealt with this. We have not had the test yet that measures the contractions of the stomach during eating, but I'm guessing this might explain a lot with dd. She continues to have undigested food on her stomach 5 hours after eating. Even raw goat milk yoghurt stays in her stomach at least 3 hours. All this despite giving fresh lemon juice 30 min before meals and 2 different Houston's enzymes with everything she eats. A nutritionist from Denver actually mentioned this to me yesterday. The chiro found 3 subluxations and said the nerves that innervate the stomach and LES could be damaged from the subluxations. Anyway, I found that most MDs use cisapride (off the market due to arrythmias), reglan (like I'm going to give those side effects to my child , and domperidone (which I still have in the cabinet from relactating). I don't want to give dd any meds. I have found several sites that discuss ginger for increasing gastric motility. I bought Nature's Answer without alcohol from the HF store and she takes it no problem. Ginger is actually o.k. on the SCD diet that she is on. I'm hoping that someone out there has used ginger with good results. TIA .
