42. Gastric Problems / Indigestion

It appears that all the people, without exception, suffer on and off from some from of gastric problem.

When improper digestion of certain foods makes us uncomfortable, we call it a gastric problem, or gastritis. Even constipation forms part of the problem.

Late night dining of oily and high protein foods, sleeping immediately after dinner, etc. seem to give gastric problems.

Biscuits, several nuts (including peanuts), food items made of refined wheat flour, including several of the bakery items, etc. do not get digested properly. They cause constipation.

Oils and sugars tend to promote digestion. Often, knowingly or unknowingly, we take sweet deserts towards the end of a meal, and that helps substantially in digestion*.

( * South Indians have the habit of serving sweetened deserts called payasam, towards the end of a meal.)

Oily foods are best eaten at the beginning of a meal, for as it is swallowed, an enzyme called cholecystokinen gets secreted. This in turn pumps out the bile juice for the digestion of fats and oils.

If oil is totally kept away from being part of the food, then, digestion of fats and oil will get impeded, and that will give rise to indigestion. Such a situation will pave a way for the formation of gall stone as well.

On the other hand, if one consumes too much of oil, even if happens to be good cholesterol (HDL) containing gingerly or olive oil, it will induce the production of excessive bile salts. This, on breaking down, will turn into cholesterol. So, only normal amount of oils and fats should be consumed.

When indigestion occurs, the digestive fluids and some of the foods can get back into the oesophagus, giving rise to a burning sensation, which people often mistake it to be a heart pain, otherwise called angina.

If the duodenum (smaller upper part of the small intestine) happens to remain in an acid medium, or if indigestion continues, the cholesterol content of the blood tends to increase.

Gastric problem certainly increases blood sugar level in diabetic patients. Chronic type of constipation (i.e., frequent defecation of slimy stools) also worsens the diabetic situation in the sufferer.

Frequent cleansing (once in three months or so) of the intestine, colon, rectum, etc. with the use of a safe herbal laxative should prove very useful in the upkeep of a healthy intestinal tract.

Whatever, one should not try to bear and live with the gastric problems for too long.

Better to remember that severe constipation at the colon for prolonged periods can give rise to colo-rectal cancer.

41. Gastrectasia / Gastrectasis (Enlarged Stomach)

The stomach (not the abdomen as such) becomes dilated (enlarged), either temporarily or permanently.

Overeating is said to be one of the reasons for this problem.

I have traced this to be due to the wearing of tight belts, elastic-fitted hard-gripping underwear, pants, skirts, etc.

Very tight waist-ware reduces the abdominal volume, within which the stomach would normally extend when that gets filled with food and liquids.

Within a short while after eating, as the food gets down into the intestinal tract, the stomach bulge normally subsides.

But, if the waist area is narrowed by mechanical tightening, then the pylorus region (that is below the stomach) gets constricted, and therefore, the stomach has no choice except to getting distended and enlarged.

If one eats stomach full and wears loose clothes at the waist (without elastic material), only temporary gastrectasia forms, and that will subside in one or two hours.

It is the hard-pressed abdomen that gives rise to permanent gastrectasia. Some policemen wearing tight belt for most part of the day daily develop pot-belly, and they form good examples of this kind.

Of course, calcification of the cells that make up the stomach and the abdomen too would give rise to potbelly.

Human Diseases Redefined: GANGRENE (Tissue Rotting)

(© 24.1.2010Dr. V.M. Palaniappan, Ph.D.) 40. Gangrene (Tissue Rotting)*

(©: 24. 1. 2010: Dr.V.M.Palaniappan, Ph.D.)

(* The phenomenon of gangrene occurrence in diabetics is similar to the development of leprosy)

This occurs when tissues in any part of the body die owing to lack of blood supply. There are many types in this.

Several reasons are given for the impeded blood flow. However, when it comes to Diabetes Mellitus, I have developed the following hypothesis that appears to fit the problem very well.

In the first place, I have established that Diabetes Mellitus occurs in a person, not because of over-consumption of sugars, but because of its under-consumption, coupled with the accumulation of calcium to an excessive level due essentially to chronic under-urination habit of the person.

Frequent urination, related to diabetes, is the result of brain trying to force out the accumulated unwanted substances, including the calcium excesses.

If a diabetic patient continues to control his urinations – in spite of the brain’s stimulation, and if the patient continues to consume excessive calcium (e.g., through calcium-enriched foods or calcium tablets), then, such excesses, with added vitamin-D and cholesterol, would accumulate in the soft tissues and harden them.

This way, the cH (calf hardness) increases to 100%, similar to what existed at the pre-diabetic state. The cells that make up the calf tissue develop hypertrophy further *.

(* Each cell becomes enlarged, owing to the over-loading of calcium oxalate crystals).
When such a tissue hardening occurs, the diabetic situation worsens to some extent.
Besides that, the following two additional problems can also occur:

(1) the hardened tissues that make up the calf (e.g., gastrocnemius and soleus muscles) can exert a pressure over the blood vessels and hinder the blood flow, and

(2) the cells that make up the blood vessel walls can get impregnated with the calcium oxalate crystals, leading to hypertrophy and narrowing of the lumen, to form atherosclerosis.

At its next stage, the lumens get totally blocked, similar to the blockages that occur in the heart. When this happens, the blood supply to the surrounding tissues will stop, thus causing the death of the cells there.

Thus, the above two together can give rise to gangrene.

Naturally and unavoidably, a surgeon would remove the dead tissues through surgical procedures. Often, this results in the amputation of the limb or a part of it, which may hasten the process of death of the person.

Formation of gangrene can be prevented by taking all the measures that are recommended in Ecological Healing System for the prevention and cure of type-1 diabetes mellitus, obesity, calf hardness, etc.

39. Gallstone (Gall Bladder Stone)

The known information is that the gallstones are made of cholesterol, bilirubin and protein.

Why does this form in some, and not in others? What are the causes responsible for such stone formations? The following should make a sensible explanation:
In the first place, we know that it is the bile juice that emulsifies the fats and oils we consume, for purposes of digestion. If we eat more fat and oily foods, more bile secretes, and less if we consume less of them. If we consume too much of the oil and fats all the time, then, too much of the bile salts will be produced.

Such bile, when under-utilised, tend to get broken down to produce cholesterol, and thus the serum cholesterol level will show very high levels.
Such an excessive oil consumption tends to create ‘ridge and groove-like’ parallel lines in the finger nails.

A reduced consumption of oily foods would gradually eliminate such a symptom.
Contrary to the above, if we do not consume fats and oils *, then, the bile secretion would gradually decrease and cease altogether.

(* This situation often arises in people who use non-stickware for cooking foods without any oil at all.)

When, this happens, any bile that has been stored in the gall bladder would get concentrated, dried up, and turn into stones. This will give rise to pain and a few other related problems.

To prevent the formation of gallstones, one should consume at all times, a mediocre amount of fats and oily food, and should not totally refrain from consuming such foods.

If stones are already formed, the best way should consist of consuming small quantities (initially 2 ml, and then gradually increasing it to about 10 ml) of high-density cholesterol (HDL) containing lipids (e.g., gingerly oil) in the mornings, on empty stomach, for a month or two.

This should induce the bile formation and secretion. The recently formed lighter stones would get dissolved away as well, thus clearing the gallbladder.

If this does not work, then, one will have no choice except to seeking help from modern medical practitioners, who may or may not recommend surgical measures for overcoming the problem.

38. Flatulence / Smelly Gas

There are two types in constipation. When a person does not defecate at least once daily, he develops what is called an acute constipation.

In this case, the faecal matter tends to get hardened and dried-up. If the interval gets extended to 3 or 4 days, then, the faeces may become hard, with cracks.

In those who defecate once a week or so, these pellets may become blackish in colour. If further delay occurs, then the faecal matter becomes black-coloured pellets, similar to goat’s droppings.

In acute constipation, not much gas (flatulence) will get emitted. If released, such gasses may not be much awful.

The second type is called chronic constipation. This happens when people eat food prepared using super refined flours, such as biscuits and bakery products. Eating over-ripe papaya fruit too gives rise to this problem.

Chronic constipation is characterised by frequent defe-cation of slimy and smelly stools in small quantities.

A person tends to go to toilet more than at least twice a day, and in some that can happen even up to eight or more number of times, daily.

In chronic constipation, the slimy faecal matter at the colon and rectal area promotes bacterial fermentation, releasing plenty of awful smelling, highly odorous and repulsive gas.

Such flatulence tend to ‘leak out’ of the sufferer, every now and then, in an uncontrollable manner.

Almost without exception, all type-2 diabetic people definitely suffer from this kind of chronic constipation.

Correction of chronic constipation involves cleansing the intestinal tract with the use of some strong and herbal laxative, followed by the avoidance of biscuits, bakery productions, all foods made of refined wheat flour, papaya fruit, and the like.

36. Facial Bulge

A baby may start withholding his/her urinal pressure because of tight-napkins. At school-going ages, lack of toilet facility, lack of free time, dirty toilets, etc. can discourage the child from releasing his/her urinal pressure. Subsequently, the child will grow up getting used to under-urinating.

Frequently, school-going children avoid drinking water in order to avoid frequent urination.

All these will pave a way for the accumulation of excessive calcium within the body of the person.

Feeding babies with thick powder milk preparations form another equally important source of excessive calcium.

The soft tissues in the face (the chin) forms one of the best locations for such calcium storage. As a result, the face bulges to a great extent, giving it a round shape.
As the child grows up to become an adult, he/she will become obese, with a round face. Such a person will have all the problems that are associated with obesity.

A female will have breast lumps, cysts, fibroids, etc. Both genders will have stone diseases, thyroid problem, tumours, cancers, and the like.

The prevention/ cure rests in drinking increased quantities of distilled or rain water (l L distilled water + 1 L purified water, daily), increased urination – once every hour for about a month or so, along with “wet” and “dry facials” as described in my book on obesity.

It is important to remember that a moon-shaped face in a child (unless changed at an early date), is an indication of some future disaster.

35. Eye Discharge

In some people, as they wake up from bed in the mornings, there will be notable quantity of some colourless (or pale white or yellowish), gum-like sticky discharge in the corners of both eyes.

This will be more in the obese people. This too appears to be related to the accumulation of excessive calcium in the body. People often accept this as a norm, and therefore dismiss it without taking any measure to prevent it.
Once a person takes adequate measures to reduce the calcium content in his/her body through the measures I have already established, this discharge gets reduced to an insignificant level.

However, since this discharge is one of the excretory products compa-rable to that of the smegma in the vagina and penis of people, or even the ear wax, a total eradication of the discharge may not be possible.

Prevention/ curative procedure requires consumption of adequate quantity of water (2 – 2½ L) and liberal urination (8-10 times).

A small reduction in the consumption of alkaline foods and fruits and an increase in the acid substances for about two to three weeks should prove helpful in reducing the discharge.

34. Eye bag
When a person under-urinates (e.g., 2-4 times daily) calcium tends to accumulate in the soft tissues present in various parts of the body.

The tender tissues under the eyes too tend to accumulate this, resulting in the enlargement of the cells (hypertrophy), and that forms the eye bag.

The only way to prevent the eye bag formation is to make sure that the person drinks about 2 – 2½ L water daily, and urinates about 8 – 10 times.

If an eye bag has already formed, it becomes very difficult to correct it, for the soft cells would not easily allow the removal of the calcium oxalate crystal deposits.

However, if a person keeps on washing his/her face a few times daily with water, these accumulations may get disturbed at least to a slight extent, and then may get dispersed from the soft tissues to other parts of the body.

The characteristics of the Skeletal or Thin persons (Palaniappan, 2000) are such that they tend to (a) drink plenty of water, (b) urinate liberally, and (c) wash their face several times daily. As a result of all these, the Skeletal and Thin people living in the tropical countries almost never develop eye bags.

However, such thin people living in temperate regions may not wash their face often, and therefore, they tend to develop small eye bags.

Most of the obese people in the temperate countries, and some such people in the tropics tend to develop eye bags, and this is essentially because of (a) under-urination that leads to calcium accumulation, and (b) not washing the face, especially in the mornings after waking up from bed.

33. Epilepsy
When a person drinks far too much of water daily (e.g., 4 L or more) and over-urinates (polyurea, about 12 times or more daily), all the much needed nutrients (along with calcium) would get leached out of the body.

Such a situation would give the person increased male sex hormone secretion – the androgen, hypersex, rapid heartbeat (palpitation), tension, stress, and also enhance epileptic attacks.
The situation would become worse if the person happens to be eating nutrient-poor diet, such as plain rice without vegetables, fruits and foods of animal origin. The following appear to be the major reasons for epileptic attacks:

(a) accumulation of toxic substances released by the decomposing faecal matter that has stagnated at the colo-rectal region of the intestinal tract causing chronic constipation,

(b) inhalation of toxic fumes emitted by mosquito coils, mosquito/insect aerosols and sprays, incense, joss sticks, camphor, car exhausts, industrial emissions, methane from sewerages, fumes from chemical stores, etc.,
(c) consuming frequently preservative-containing foods and drinks,
(d) often eating previous day’s left-over foods, containing especially dhal and other dried legumes,
(e) sleeping in a room with all windows closed,
(f) sleeping with face covered with a blanket or comforter,
(g) drinking reduced quantity of water (e.g., about ½ L),
(h) under- or over-urinating all the time (about twice daily, or more than 12 times),
(i) eating too much of high protein diet, inadequate quantities of carbohydrates and fats that would add up to very little calories,
(k) inadequate sleep by night, and
(l) reduced red blood cell count in the blood.
All these affect the brain intensely. For want of oxygen, and to shed off the already gathered toxic gasses, the brain activates the body to shiver violently, and this becomes the epileptic attacks, otherwise called seizures.
The cure will rest upon correction of all the above erroneous practises. In addition, the patient should be trained to do proper Breathing Exercise, Body Towel Massage, Body Rubbing Exercise, water consumption, urination, etc.
Nutrient-rich food should be given regularly. Vegetables that are naturally rich in calcium should also be given in slightly larger quantities.
Oranges and lemon juices (with added sugar) would provide more of potassium that would speed up the recovery.
Besides this, the water consumption should also be kept to an optimum level (e.g., 2L daily). Yet, the liberal urination habit should be continued.
All the above will have to be cautiously and gradually given, lest, in the process of correcting some of these, he/she may get spontaneous attacks. With proper treatment the recovery may take about three months or so.

One should never ever administer any form of laxative to an epileptic patient, for that can not only increase the intensity of the attacks, but can also prove to be fatal.
Epilepsi is related to: Eclampsia, Parkinson’s disease, Hyperactive child Tension & Stress, and Palpitation.
