Gastrointestinal symptoms

The Knowledge Base includes articles on the following gastrointestinal symptoms and conditions:

    • foods to help you gain weight
    • weight change
  • bloating and gas
  • Constipation – A condition of the digestive system in which a person experiences hard feces that are difficult to expel. In certain cases, constipation may be caused by medications, such as opioids, or food intake.
  • Diarrhea – The excessive and frequent evacuation of watery feces and is commonly reported in those patients with Crohn's disease, inflammatory bowel disorder, and other disease caused by infections of the gastrointestinal tract.
  • liver and gall bladder
  • rectal
    • anal fissures
    • bleeding
      • Patient experiences
  • upper gastrointestinal symptoms
    • nausea and vomiting
    • stomach and esophagus
  • yeast infection and gluten sensitivity

Belching, bloating and excess gas formation

Burping (belching, or eructation) can be due to gas-producing bacteria in the digestive system. Eating carbs such as refined sugar, flour and some high-sugar fruits can make digestive gas or belching worse. This article says. “The gas-producing colonic bacteria thrive on foods containing poorly digested carbohydrates (starches and sugars).”

An NIH website says, “ Most foods that contain carbohydrates can cause gas. By contrast, fats and proteins cause little gas.” You may reduce gas by reducing carbohydrate consumption.

Some people have burps and others have gas in the lower digestive system, but the gas produced by bacteria in the gut eventually must escape. This is another symptom of the disease that we would expect to resolve.

Simethicone is an oral anti-foaming agent used to reduce bloating, discomfort and pain caused by excess gas in the stomach or intestinal tract.

Beano is a natural enzyme supplement that can help you prevent gas, bloating, and other digestive problems after eating certain foods

Particular care

Not only can gastrointestinal Sx be very unpleasant, but in extreme could lead to your doctor refusing to prescribe OlmesartanMedication taken regularly by patients on the Marshall Protocol for its ability to activate the Vitamin D Receptor. Also known by the trade name Benicar. . In this regard, the high CGA component of coffee is of concern. Professor Marshall drinks weak green tea, no coffee.

Although coffee can help control IP in the short term for some people, in the long term the CGA could interfere with the IP reducing function of Olmesartan. Chlorogenic Acid in Coffee is powerful Immune modulator

There are molecular similarites. There are reports that in a very small minority of people, an extreme gastrointestinal response may ensue. Whether there can be an allergic or histamine related crisis is not known at present. Current research indicates only a “relationship” with Olmesartan (single daily dose) in people affected.

Dear MPKB Reader: You have arrived at one of the articles that has not yet completed the development and review process in the knowledge base. Some of the content here may be helpful, but please know that this page is not complete. There are about 400 articles in the KB, and this is one we are still working on. Thanks for your patience.
