So you want to know about me? Nice to meet you through this website.
I am a language teacher. I teach French as a foreign language. Most of my students are teenagers and I love the interaction with them. I have a 18 year old daughter.
Now after knowing a little about me, let me tell you about this website:
Let me first tell you that I am not a medical professional. But I was a sufferer of digestive problems long back. As a child, I was fairly healthy and didn't have much problem. I did occasionally have indigestion but nothing to worry about.
Once I turned 30, things become worse. Excessive Belching was my constant companion. I suffered from acid indigestion and heartburn for long. I had headaches too and would feel better only after vomiting. And it was a regular occurance.
I belched when my stomach was empty and I belched even after I had eaten. Though I went about doing my work, I just felt sick most of the time. I saw people eating and enjoying their food around me and here I was, suffering even when I ate a bland diet.
I suffered like this for quite a few years. While looking for heartburn cures, I consulted the doctors and they gave me antacids most of the time, which helped me only as long as I was taking them. I also tried alternative medicines but didn't have much success.
Many 'helpful people' around me gave me advice. Of course they meant well. Some advised me to eat 5 or 6 meals a day instead of 3. I did that. The belching and heartburn problem abated a bit but I started to put on weight. The belching also came back after some time.
Apart from the physical pain and discomfort, the feeling of not being in control where my health is concerned was quite disturbing to me. I felt so helpless. I couldn't plan anything without wondering if my stomach would allow me to do what I wanted.
Finely I got so fed up that I stopped to take all medicines. I decided to find out why things were the way they were. I knew I did not need to live a miserable life because of my digestion.
I did a lot of research and used the information to get rid of my acid indigestion problem. I also learned about other digestive disorders, how human digestive system works and how and why things can go wrong.
I found all the information quite interesting and useful. I understood why I was having digestive problems and what I needed to do to get rid of those and feel healthy and full of life again.
It did not happen in a day or anything. My digestion had become worse slowly and it took some time to bring it back to health. But I did it.
Now my digestion is good and I feel healthy and enjoy my life. Every morning I get up with enthusiasm about my planned day.Now even if I get some digestive problem, I know how to get my digestion back on track.
I see around me people suffering for different digestive disorders. Some of them have them occasionally and are not worried about them. Some of them have it bad, they get rid of the symptoms with some medicines and think that there is no cure or that is the way they have to live.
But I know that it need not be like that. It is possible to enjoy healthy life when you are aware of a few things and have some information. I would like to share the information I gathered with others and help them to live a healthy ,better life.
This website is the result of my research and I hope it helps you in living a healthier life. You or your family member or a friend may find this information useful.
Remember I am not a doctor and you must consult your physician about your problems. A little information, some awareness about your body will help you surely.
I will add more info about me later.
