| | Full Feeling? Works Like Reglan--Only Natural!
For those of you with gastroparesis-like symptoms (feeling very full after eating a small meal, etc.)...I thought I was going to have to take Reglan or some similar prescription motility drug for this. I didn't relish the thought, due to side-effects I'd read about. After much prayer, I "accidentally" (I know it was God leading me there!) came upon a Web site for a product containing a combination of peppermint oil and caraway-seed oil in an enteric-coated capsule. research was done on this product in Germany, and it was founfd to produce nearly identical results as Cisapride (one of the motility drugs that is no longer sold in the USA), without adverse side effects. I can't give you the exact link here, but you can do a search on peppermint oil-caraway seed oil capsules.
To make a long story short, after taking one before breakfast & one before lunch for a week or so, THEY WORKED GREAT FOR ME! I was also glad they were enteric-coated, so the peppermint oil didn't aggravate my GERD. Soon I was eating regular-sized meals again & gained back the weight I had lost (a good thing, since I was looking like a stick!).
Hope you find them as great a miracle as I did!
