Endoscopy

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hey I've been on ppi drugs for a long time. Sometimes 30mg twice a day but at the moment 1 a day. I need to come off them for 10 days before endoscopy. What would you all recommend in that period to help me not suffer too much?

    Hi Gary

    If you can manage it, go vegan for10 days, it works brilliantly. 👌😁

    I will do as I'm vegetarian already. What sort of vegan meals would you recommend?

      Lots of veg, with nuts, seeds, pulses. Olive oil on the veg, quinoa rice. Basically try to keep it very alkaline. Fermented foods are great for the gut, kimchi and sauerkraut. Brussels sprouts help prevent the overgrowth of disease causing bacteria such as H. Pylori, bananas boost good bacteria in the digestive system and promote robust gut health, almonds also promote good gut health. You should be fine as long as your diet is alkaline.

    I've had a bad cold and had to take cold meds. Wow they've aggravated my heartburn. It's bad timing as I was trying to taper down my dose ready for endoscopy in October
