How to have a healthy liver and good digestion without a gallbladder


Hi, My wife is lactose intolerant and has hiatus hernia. She has to be very selective in what she eats. Her diet are foods like boiled sweet potato and carrots, canned beans, boiled eggs, salad, chicken or fish and in small portions. As replacement for milk she drinks soy milk, no dairy or regular cheese at all anymore. She has debated having an operation for hiatus hernia. She is from Finland. It seems to me that the main issue with her diet and stomach acid upset is due to hiatus hernia?

Do you think a hiatus hernia operation is the answer for her? I would recommend consulting your physician. I am not a doctor and cannot answer individual health status questions, nor diagnose any kind of medical condition. Best wishes to your wife. No disrespect towards you, Amelia. It is a painful, chronic, and serious ailment that could land you in a hospital.

I suggest the first step is replace standard dairy with the available substitutes, and never going back. Trying alternatives such as Vegan cream cheese to replace the dairy version.

If having yogurt, only going with Kefir or Probiotic with none of the garbage. You want fruity flavor add some fruit.

From there you can test your limits because every individual is different. I can also eat all hard and deli cheeses. Then in doing research, I found that Cocoa Powder counteracts Lactose in dairy, so I added Cocoa Powder to make chocolate whipped cream and the heavens have opened. My waistline may not like it, but I have a happy remedy. I can also eat pizza without a problem, even with extra cheese.

Especially considering the many health benefits most dairy does offer. Research everything, experiment, learn your limits and then enjoy your new foods. You may not be able to tolerate anything dairy, but no one else but you can figure that out. There is so much info out there for you to learn on the internet or at the library or talking to your doctor. Now go learn for yourself. Hi Eric — your tips are solid and I appreciate you chiming in with sound guidance. Many times, we as individuals have to do some trial and error to find what works for our own bodies.

But in the meantime eliminating most dairy products, and reading ingredients lists, are good places to start! Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about lactose intolerance.

Lactose is the naturally-occurring sugar found in milk and most dairy products. Is lactose intolerance the same as being allergic to milk? Most people with lactose intolerance can eat yogurt. The good bacteria live, active cultures found in yogurt will help digest the lactose for you. The harder a cheese, the less lactose it has. Lactose is found in the watery part of milk, and since harder cheeses have less liquid, that means they contain less lactose.

Extra sharp cheddar, Parmesan, Pecorino, aged gouda and other very hard cheeses have essentially no lactose. Lactaid is the most well-known example in this category, but there now quite a few other cheeses, yogurts, and ice creams that are fortified with the lactase enzyme, so people with lactose intolerance can digest them.

Low-fat dairy products in small amounts. These foods are also higher in protein and calcium than their high-fat counterparts. Finding the foods that work for you may just be a matter of trial and error, so start slow. Dairy products eaten with a lactase pill. Pop a lactase pill minutes before consuming dairy to see if this method works for you. What foods should be avoided? Large serving sizes of dairy products. Your body is more likely to tolerate dairy if you eat only a little at a time.

These actually have less lactose than low-fat products, but tend to be more irritating to those with lactose intolerance or who are sensitive to rich foods. The one exception here is aged cheese, which is high-fat but low-lactose. This is mostly because of reason 2. Many soft-serve desserts, smoothies, and protein shakes have significant amounts of whey protein concentrate, and will cause major digestive distress.

I got the list from wikipedia alot of medical terms and hard for a non dr. However, google it if you are interested. I am blessed to know what happens in the brain when we take these meds. However, i, like you, have much to learn.

I dont know how long this will take but im getting really tired of it I guess if we really want this we have to hang in there If it has been two weeks since you took any opiates then you are through the worst of the withdrawls.

It will gradually get better from here on out. Hang in there and you will be an opiate free, feeling good person soon. This has helped me. It's been about3 months and some days it feels like the2nd. I take a piece of buke every now and than but I have 0 energy and the mental a foggy mind and some of the pther symptoms. I just want to feel normal again. Ive eaten most of my lining i think but no insurance and cant work long enough before my benefits kick in.

I feel like a failure plus I suffer with mental health and a allergy to gluten. I wake up in horrible panic attacks in my sleep it feels like it stops i jump out of my sleep than restless leg syndrome. I was hoping that someone would say give it 1 mpre day. I have been around them but the thought of withdrawal is enough for me. I just want to be an active parent wife and a better me. I have health problems but i wish I never enjoyed that first time.

I hate my life it has no meaning.. I have no friends at all and an abusive husband who loves to see me suffer God help me someone help me! I don't Evan have the tools to go to a detox I'm already thinking what will I do tomorrow.. Hey, It is the drugs talking. Your life has meaning whether your husband says so or not. Not sure how to help you, but im willing to listen.

Passion flower is good to take. Drink plenty of water. You should also have a banana everyday or pineapplejuice since it has potassium which you need to help with body aches.

Take hot showers or take baths in epsom salts which helps with the aches tremendously! But you know nothing about me. You are very lucky. I have been pill sick for two years. I cannot even go to the mailbox. I cannot eat,sleep nothing for two years. My back is now damaged for laying in bed for two years. I was doing ten milligrams of Methodone,that's all. And to pay two years for that is not a fair trade at all.

My life is this ceiling and bed of two years. The truth is that one can be pill sick between seven days and twenty years,somewhere in there you will be able to get out of bed.

If people knew the truth,no one would quit using. I lost my house,not because of money,but because I had no energy to pay the bills. I have been in bed for two years because of ten milligrams a day for a few years. I can help you. If you want me to tell you what happened to me let me know. I can help you get better faster.

Hi Charles, I would like to hear what you have to say on the matter. I find the fear, the psychological is at least what I think is the worst for me. But, I know psych and phys walk hand in hand. I hope to hear from you. My husband was on ops for 12 years after a back injury. We have been fighting to get him off of the pills for almost that long. Everytime he would quit it would usually be for 2 weeks to a month he would be right back on them again.

Not only that but his anxiety and dare I say paranoia were over the top. A few months ago we heard about kratom , and figured, "what the heck". It helped so much with the withdrawal! I am proud to say that he has been clean from ops since January! He was able to stop using kratom with no withdrawal within after about a month. The only reason he took so long was we were a little scared of relapse without it, and we wanted him to go slowly, just in case.

If your interested in learning more about kratom where we got it, dosage recommendations, etc I'd be happy to tell you. Hey there, I just noticed this posting and i would like to know more about this kratom that you used to get your husband off of ops.

I have a loved one that is struggling with using and I have tried everything shy of rehab which i dont have the money to fund. I know that you made this post years ago and probably wont see this comment but if you d please let me know how I can get some of this to help my family.

Apparently many people find it useful as there was a big uproar when FDA decided to up its classification as a controlled substance. It's now back on the market. This site has loads of recommendations for detox. I'm at sixteen days today from heroin and methadone seven weeks since last tablet. I am finding that I'll feel better for part of the day. However, as the day goes on i'll experience more symptoms of withdrawal, generally peaking in the afternoon. I'm taking psych meds SSRI, Anti-psychotic, doxepin, and others they don't really seem to help as much as the ativan I had from days Unfortunately those ran out quickly Being able to get any amount of sleep has been critical in preventing relapse; a few times I considered scoring just to take care of the restless exhaustion.

Its tough, but I made up my mind to stay away! I'm doing this without a twelve step program. They just don't work for me either. I'm tired of being a slave to opiates I just couldn't afford to support the habit anymore. From what I have been reading online the normal withdrawals are supposed to last no longer than two weeks for short-acting opiates, and up to three months for long acting ones.

I feel terrible today, but I'm gonna try to take a nap for at least two hours. I'm also going to try to get out of the house today just to force myself to do something. Good luck to anyone who is out there still struggling Hi ineedofanswers, I've no idea how I missed your question, I must have been out of town when ye posted this, or I would have been on this like white on rice.

Hope you are feeling better by now!! If not, please post again, let us know how you are doing? Did you relapse or are you still in WD?

Since then I have eaten normally, not avoiding any foodstuffs whatever. I eat fried foods, cured meats, cereal with milk, yoghurt, cream fruit desserts etc etc. The only time I had some discomfort was after a meal with rather too much high grade virgin olive oil.

My consultant advised me to eat normally and said that my digestion would adjust itself to the new regime which has proved to be the case.

I have pretty much managed my weight within a range since then through periods of putting myself back into ketosis, and I always feel healthiest when I am in ketosis.
