So, what can we do in these situations? My best advice is to, one, be prepared with a tummy toolkit, and two, practice deep breathing and relaxation techniques. Yesterday I popped in a ginger chew and took some slow, deep breaths of the Quease Ease. Here are some additional tools and information to prevent this feeling from taking over.

Part 1: Cardamom Cures and to this day happens to be the most popular and viewed post! So, this got me thinking, maybe its time to continue looking at ways to enhance flavor and digestion. Continuing with C's, next on the list is my love for coriander/cilantro.

This week, from Feb 5-11, is Feeding Tube Awareness Week. The goal is to raise awareness of enteral/tube feeding as a positive and often life-saving medical intervention for those who are unable to eat and drink enough to sustain life and thrive. I never imagined my life would turn out this way, having a feeding tube that is. In the beginning I was scared and sad, not understanding how it came to this. Today I am thankful because it saved my life. Though it is not a cure for GP, it has provided me with a temporary solution and enough strength and energy to stay healthy, an option I did not have prior to the tube.
