    Effect of gastric acid suppressants on human gastric motility

    This study has shown that therapeutic doses of ranitidine, famotidine, and omeprazole, which suppress gastric acid secretion, affect both gastric motility and gastric emptying. All significantly delayed gastric emptying despite an increase in postprandial antral contractility as assessed using antral manometry, electrogastrography, and dynamic antral scintigraphy.
    Okay Guys,
    Let us see if I am able to explain why you are stuck and where you are stuck. and WHY GP can not be cured, is a FALSE statement. Yes it can not be cured in Allopathic method of cure probably but if you can not reach your home by taking route XYZ the you must look for some other route to reach home. You never say to yourself that reaching your home is not possible just become someone told you so.

    Following example tells you how and when GP was created and also why and where you are stuck. Also let us ignore some small error in explanation but you must see the larger picture of how you can come out of your situation.

    We travel from Step 1 to Step 9 in this example below:-->> You shall read it as; Step1 causes step2 and step2 causes step3 and so on...
    (REASON X causes Acidosis , Acidosis causes Blood PH lowering......)
    1. REASON-X OR one example:Leaky Gut/Thinning of mucosa or intestinal lining (Caused by: uncontrolled use of NSAID painkiller drugs, Frequent skipping meals, Eating Acid forming food lifestyle, surgeries etc etc)
    2.Acidosis (Undigested food & acid go into blood causing blood contamination)
    3. Blood PH goes down. (Acidic blood state, causes depletion of alkaline reserves as blood must be restored to proper pH levels, borrows alkaline reserves from Bones/Muscles etc etc causing weight loss )
    =>>4. Start of Gastro paresis or Delayed emptying of stomach (GP itself Manifests more issues like:-Sensitive stomach, Constipation, acid buildup , acid reflux in some people, can not eat strong/heavy food ,depletion of alkaline reserves, Having acid forming meal cause more stomach anxieties and flareups)
    5.Doctors now prescribe PPI (PPI drugs suppress acid but as a side effect cause further Delayed emptying or Gastro Paresis as per research already provided in my previous posts, and also thousands of live people like you stuck and not getting any results prove this)
    6. One Expects to be Cured since you are on prescriptions but that never happens. What is the point in having prescription drugs if they are not going to cure you !!!!.
    7. Loop Back to Step 4 as now Instead of curing GP, PPI's are now causing further delayed emptying (more GP!!) i.e step 4.
    8. So now you travel from step 4 to 5 and back to step 2 and you never ever come out. This is a LOOP.
    9. If Cure is STEP 6 you never reach it as use of PPI drugs cause you to go backward to step 4.
    10. To exit or break the the LOOP you must first remove step 5. Similarly Pro-kinetic drugs have their own side effects. they work for some time for some people and for others they do not work at all. Hence the need to avoid this class of drug too. We do not want any drugs that interferes with logical functioning of stomach.

    So now as per my experience (and I have done it guys) if you can take care of step 2 & Step 3 GASTRO PARESIS would be resolved, RIGHT? It is the Root cause in Step 1 that will take some more time to resolve or even if did not, then also by taking care of Step2 & Step 3 Gastro Paresis can be avoided. So now who says GP can not be CURED ??!!!
