Be Good to your Gut! (Digestive Disease)

I was told to avoid fiber, nuts and seeds because of my bowel problems. Isn't that correct?

How can I improve my digestion?


Antibiotic related diarrhea and probiotics 

Fatty Liver Disease

Gastroesophageal Reflux (GERD) 

Poor Gastric Emptying

Ginger root capsules, adding ginger to food or drinking it in tea, have been shown to be helpful with poor stomach emptying.  Ginger capsules can be purchased fairly inexpensively without a prescription.  Taking about 1200 mg a day may be helpful, especially about an hour before you eat your largest meal.
