Has anyone tried herbal remedies for gp and intestinal dysmotility? I have tried every drug that the doctors can think of and nothing has really helped me. I am now researching herbal remedies since I really cannot afford to lose anymore weight. I am now down to 113lbs and dropping.
Here is a quick summary of my research so far after wading through lots and lots of medical speak.
Magnolia bark extract- improves gastric emptying and intestinal motility in semi solid meals, reduces inflammation, helps with gastric accomodation, has antibacterial effects against gram + organisms, and some antifungal activities, helps with anxiety, and has strong antioxidant properties
Rikkunshito- promotes GE, helps with nausea, dyspepsia, and anorexia
Liu- jun-zi- tang accelerates GE, reduces dyspepsia symptoms
Wu-Mei-Wan and Hange-Koboku-to both improve GE
Weidong Kang - alleviates dyspeptic symptoms in diabetic gastroparesis
Dai-Kenchu-to Improves GI motility in the intestines and colon. I'm couldn't find any research on it and gastroparesis
Anyone want to help me in researching herbal medicines? All those medical abstracts have left me with a major headache. Since most of these are mixes of several different herbs, I'm also trying to look for common ingredients and figure out which specific herb or combination would have the most beneficial effect.
Any other recommendations on herbal medicines I can add to this list?
I tried lemon balm extract- it definitely helped with gastric emptying but made me nauseous.
