Slow digestive system

Does anyone know how to treat a slow moving digestive system? I am finding a lot of info on what it is, but nothing really on how to treat it. Thanks. I am beginning to think that's what my problem is because I have been dealing with stomach issues (24-7 nausea, bloating, major gas) for over two years and I have had to deal with it on my own b/c my dr kept telling me it was IBS but I think it's more than that. I have tried eliminating SO MANY foods from my diet and everything makes me nauseous. I just don't know what to do anymore because it's affecting my life in such a depressing way.

Re: Slow digestive system

There is a drug called Domperidone(Motilium) that helps with symptoms of Gastroparesis(slow stomach emptying). It helps by increasing stomach/bowel contractions so food moves out faster. It is usually taken before meals and at bedtime. It helps with nausea as well. Don't know how well it works because I was given a prescription for it but never tried it because I don't think that is my problem.
Have you been tested for Gastritis? That has some of the symptoms you are describing. I know I have "mild" gastritis and have nausea, bloating, gas, heartburn.

Hope this helps!
