Hello all,

I am new to these boards and have an unusual problem. I have a dear friend staying with me who has Gastroparesis. She has been unable to eat for 4 days now. This is all new to me and I am trying to find information on what has helped others in the past.

She has been sipping water and doing OK for about a day. This is R/O (Reverse Osmosis) water into which I place a tiny pinch of raw (unheated) salt (which is full of unheated minerals) into 1 quart of water. I also placed about 1/8 cup of goji berries and some fresh sliced ginger (ginger supposed to calm the stomach). I just let it sit and leach into the water. So far, so good.

I am able to make her fresh juice. Have any of you had success with juice, if so, what have you been juicing?

Also, have any of you tried digestive enzymes to help heal your stomach and create healthy gastric flora?

I look forward to any help with this. Thank you! :)
