Benefits of Using a Tongue Scraper 👅 ⭐️Clears toxins & bacteria from the mouth
⭐️Helps remove coating on the tongue that leads to bad breath.
⭐️Helps eliminate undigested food particles from the tongue.
⭐️Enhances the sense of taste.
⭐️Promotes overall oral & digestive health.
⭐️Improves digestive health.
⭐️Gently stimulates the internal organs.
⭐️Increases your awareness of your state of health. ⚠️Your tongue is a reflection of your gastrointestinal tract ⚠️If your tongue is coated in white ama, that's a sign there are excess toxins in your gastrointestinal tract.
Why tongue scrape❓ ➡️Digestion begins in the mouth. The moment you eat something, your mouth sends signals to your stomach that it's time to digest. If your taste buds are coated, your tongue receptors won't know what you are eating, so there is less signal to your body to secrete the correct digestive enzymes necessary to breakdown your meal. ➡️Tongue scraping removes the toxins which block your tongue receptors, improving digestion. On top of that, you can taste food better, allowing you to eat less food and be more satisfied with your meal.
How to use a tongue scraper🤷🏽♀️
▶️When you get up in the morning Scrape your tongue from the back to front in long strokes about 10 times
▶️Go hard enough that the ama is being removed from your tongue but not too hard that you are hurting yourself- just hard enough that you are removing the toxicity.
▶️Rinse mouth and tongue scraper thoroughly afterward with warm water.
Apparently there's this thing called "you CAN eat too many veggies" on Whole30 and cause yourself some SEVERE stomach issues. 🤷♀️ Yesterday was day 6 and it was rough! I generally eat a LOT of veggies so I'm not sure why I had severe stomach:intestinal pains in my upper stomach. It was so bad I had to leave work yesterday. I took some anti nausea meds and rested for about an hour then took my ass to the co-op and got a gut cleansing smoothie, digestive enzymes, & stocked up on that kombucha! I feel better today but now know to cut down on the raw and cruciferous veg. Adding white potatoes back into my #whole30
a few times a week and looking at a FODMAP should help. I'm proud I didn't deter from my Whole30 (although yes a smoothie isn't totally accepted this one was mango, spirinula, pineapple, and fresh OJ.) and that's matters to me. Starting day 7 with simple hash browns and scrambled eggs. :

On a work trip for Trevor. Exhausted as hell. So hard to sleep without my purple bed, in new places, without my kitties, etc. Also had to wait in the car for 6 hours while Trevor worked because of hotels’ absurd mandatory check out times. He made me a nice car bed area but it got hot so I had to open the car up for a bit, yes it was a little awkward but we had to do car bed at uni too so not anything new.
Currently at a nice little hotel in Montrose. We were in Grand Junction, and stopped for a meeting in Frisco on the way to GJ on Monday too. Then headed to Durango. Don’t get to be home till Saturday. Buuuut we’ll be seeing Black Canyon here in Montrose and going to Mesa Verde on Friday and Saturday to make the trip worth it for US. Lol 😝
Been having so many endo gastrointestinal symptoms. So I’m starting the FODMAP diet to help try and heal my gut, insides, and lessen this damn inflammation. This on top of my anti inflammatory, gluten free, dairy free (except hard cheeses - sensitive to casein not lactose) food restrictions. I’m so irritated.
Also getting some supplements I have used and trust to help repair my gut and some new ones I’m excited about! I HAVE to get this endo under control, because when endo is out of control my fibro etc. is impossible to manage! Also going to an endo specialist ASAP.
I just really really really hate doctors. Really the whole medical system I will do ANYTHING to avoid going. It’s really not good 😂

Barrett's esophagus -is a condition that affects the lower esophagus.However, people who have Barrett's oesophagus develop cells that are tall (columnar) and red. These columnar cells develop in the lower end of the esophagus near the stomach, which is normally lined with similar cells. Therefore, the condition is sometimes also called columnar-lined oesophagus.
Some people who have Barrett's oesophagus do not experience any symptoms at all. Common symptoms of Barrett’s esophagus include indigestionand heartburn. You may also experience difficulty swallowing food, nausea and vomiting. Less commonly, you may have blood in your vomit or pain when swallowing. Seek medical help if your symptoms do not improve in two weeks, or if you see blood in your vomit.
Most often, Barrett's oesophagus is caused bygastroesophageal reflux disease, which is also called reflux esophagitis.

Living with IBS/ Crohns is challenging to say the least.
Were going back to square one again, for the millionth time it seems but its almost become the name of the game with this condition. Pictures are last night and this morning where I have found a tiny bit of relief.... i still feel awful tho 🙃🙃🙃🙃
A month ago I had to go on a liquid diet for 4 days to reset everything and when reintroducing food started a low-fodmap diet that has had its ups and downs as well but this last week has gotten especially bad for a reason I cant quite put my finger on.....
SO its back to the bone broth and rice diet for tonight at least YAY. Its not as camera worthy as my usual dishes but this brand has NO garlic or onion so its my fave when I am out of the homemade stuff!! Anyone with advice on what to eat when you cant eat anything is always appreciated 😋

I’ve reached the point of no return: drinking my prep for my colonoscopy, endoscopy, and impedance test tomorrow. I feel lucky that I can drink Miralax mixed with Powerade and take 4 Dulcolax tabs, as opposed to drinking syrup like mixtures. It took me 8 months to get the courage to agree to these tests. I’m glad to get them done and over with, and my family and I are praying we will find the missing piece of the puzzle that is my health. -Brooke #ibs #proudofmyself #gastrointestinalproblems #nomorepowerade
La gastrostomía endoscópica percutánea (conocida por su acrónimo en inglés PEG) es una técnica endoscópica que permite la colocación de una sonda flexible, creando una comunicación temporal o permanente entre la pared abdominal y la cavidad gástrica, asegurando la alimentación directa al tubo digestivo del paciente.
La colocación de una sonda de PEG podría contemplarse en: a) de modo temporal en pacientes con cuadros potencialmente reversibles; b) en enfermedades irreversibles para las que se espera una supervivencia prolongada (mayor de 6 meses), y c) en enfermedades terminales y debilitantes con expectativa de vida relativamente prolongada, casos en los que la indicación e implementación de la técnica deberán ser individualizadas y consensuadas. En este caso se colocaba PEG a un paciente femenino de 80 años con Evento Cerebrovascular secuelado con incapacidad para deglutir.

2/19/18 I had my gastroscopy and enteroscopy at the hospital 🏥 where my rheumatologist is also located. He arranged also this appointment for me because I have gastrointestinal problems nearly a year now. I wanted to do this examination already 3 years ago but then I changed my diet because of celiac disease and it all got better. But now it's everything back and worse. The gastroscopy went well and I luckily got a sedation😴. Unfortunately they couldn't do the enteroscopy because I brought up the last litre of the laxative 🤢 This fluid was so bad to drink with nausea, it was so salty and bitter. So I have to do it again on the 3/12/18 and at another doctor. Because this new gastroenterologist gave me another laxative which is hopefully easier to drink 😊 If you want more information please feel free to ask me 💡
19.02.18 Ich hatte meine Magen-Darmspiegelung im KH 🏥 wo auch mein Rheumatologe praktiziert. Er hat auch diesen Termin ausgemacht, da ich seit 1 Jahr Magemdarmprobleme habe. Ich hätte so eine Untersuchung schon einmal machen sollen vor 3 Jahren, aber dann habe ich meine Ernährung umgestellt wegen meiner Zöliakie und alle Beschwerden verschwanden. Also verzichtete ich erfreut auf diese Untersuchung 🌸Die Magenspiegelung lief sehr gut und ich habe zum Glück eine Sedierung bekommen, sodass ich nichts von dieser mitbekommen habe 😴 Die Darmspiegelung konnte leider nicht durchgeführt werden, da ich den letzten Liter des Abführmittels erbrochen habe. Diese Flüssigkeit war so salzig und bitter 🤢 das war echt schlimm diese 3 Liter mit Übelkeit zu trinken. Also muss ich die Darmspiegelung nochmal machen am 12.03 und dieses Mal bei einem anderen Gastroentrologen und ich habe dieses Mal auch ein anderes Abführmittel bekommen😊 Falls noch jemand Fragen hat, bitte schreibt sie in die Kommentare💡

At night I’ll massage a few drops onto my abdomen and feet for an easier nights sleep. DigestZen is also safe enough to be ingested so I sometimes take it as a dietary supplement. You can also dilute one drop in 4 oz of water or soy/rice milk, and sip slowly. There are more ways to use DigestZen so if you’re interested just send me a message.

For the first time in over 6 months, my inflammation is down within a normal range! My C. Reactive protein is finally normal. I’m thrilled but also a little bummed. My inflammation is down due to kicking gluten to the curb. I’ve been dairy free for awhile but abandoning gluten seemed to seal the deal. .
And now the hiccup, since I’ve gone GF, I’ve had horrible stomach and abdominal pains, along with cramping. I’m baffled as to why that’s happening.

Had a GI appointment on Wednesday. New medication to try and the recommendation to "get off [painkillers]". The doctor even said that even though it's her recommendation she doesn't expect me to because I need the pain meds to function and even offered other possible solutions in stead of my needing the pain meds which I really appreciated. It's just so hard to hear that one medical treatment is causing HARM when it should just be helping. As patients we often pick and choose. Pick a problem to treat and choose to sacrifice the stability of another aspect of our overall health. I'm so tired.... #ehlersdanlossyndrome #ehlersdanlos #ehlersdanlosawareness #pots #dysautonomia #gastrointestinalproblems #gastricmotilitydisorders
NOTE: that is NOT my blood pressure that was from the patient before me! 👌🏼
Some days you feel you can climb mountains and others getting out of bed and putting pressure on your body seams impossible. I am adjusting to the reality of fibromyalgia you push until you can't push more than you push again. So to all of my other fibro suffers and general spoonies remember to count your spoons before you jump in. Some days it's better to weigh the importantance of what you want to do before you jump in. I send you all my prayers as requested and extra spoons as needed.
