mild nausea

Posted by pamela griffn on September 29, 2001 at 23:43:04:

Can you tell me what can cause mild nausea after some foods and not others? Stress? Gallstones (even though there's no pain or tenderness), overweight? Gerd? Anxiety? In my head??

Hi Pamela.
I don't think your symptoms - or anyone's - are 'in your head' :)

You ask several questions, but give too little information for anyone to even guess what this might be. Nausea is such a general symptom, that it might indicate so many conditions. Another thing is that it is never that simple: nausea after type of food = gallstones.

It would be helpful if you said more about your state of health, diet and lifestyle. Also which type of food you react to, how long does the reaction last, for how long this has been going on and so on.

Even when detailed description of symptoms and context in which they are occurring is known, it can be difficult to define a cause. The more you provide in sense of information the more likely you are to get some help :)

I'm sorry ABC. Well...Im 40, outside of colds occasionally, allergy attacks in summer, not a smoker nor a drinker, in good excellent condition thats about it. I have anxiety disorder with agoraphobia. I guess maybe I had an anxious week because I am feeling better.

Thanks, Pam.

Unfortunately, I predict that your nausea will be back.

What have you learned from the archives about brain chemistry? Both these conditions are related.

Instead of your LGS (caused by stress-effect) giving you GI symptoms, the first thing it did was leak specific peptides that created immunologically active molecules mimicing the endorphans in your brain that trigger things like anxiety disorder or agoraphobia.

Let us know what you learn.

Still difficult to say… are you familiar with the concept of metabolism-appropriate diet?
Maybe you are eating well, but your organism needs slightly different diet? My experience is that wrong pH balance can and will induce 'mental' symptoms.

There is an excellent book on this, *Nutrition and your mind* by George Watson. Unfortunately it is out of print, but try public library. (Amazon.com might find a used copy for you).

Also, read the posts in the archives on metabolic diets. Maybe you'll find more clues...and learn more, because that is the only thing that will help.

One more thing: for all kinds of anxiety I'd suspect coffee (and caffeine)! Coffee is the first thing to cut out, that is, if you are a drinker. Stay also clear of sugar, aspartame and junk like that. This could make a world of difference.

Excuse me????? What in the world was that??? Can you translate please? I went in the archives everyday since I last posted and found nothing that made any sense, just like this above paragraph...sorry.

O.K. Pam.

One thing at a time.

What have you learned from the brain chemistry archives?

absolutely nothing just a bunch of mumble jumble.

Pam.

This means to me that your brain chemistry is SO far off that you are going to need professional help to get enough better that you CAN start helping yourself.

See the archives about Holistic Practitioners to help you find someone in your area to start with. Pay special attention to healthcomm.com and those who have subscribed to their service for at least 2 years.

Let us know how you do.
