help with vasovagal syncope problem

Hi all
I have a friend whose 20 year old son constantly gets severe stomache cramps and vomiting, followed by passing out for several minutes. Since he was about 4 years old he has had cyclical vomiting.
Has anyone had experience with these symtoms and are there any alternative methods of dealing with them?
He has been given no definitive answer except that of Vasovagal Syncope which apparently has no cure.
Is it possible it is a food or airboren allergy?
Thanks for any help given.

Bob

Bob,

This is a classical condition that cannot have much control at age 4--except for very deep and understanding therapy which at that age is iffy.

However, since it is usually not dealt with at that age it becomes fixed in the psyche and can only be dealt with at age 20 with therapy by an expert.

His only other option would be the diligent application of the 3LS which would take a year to begin taking effect--CERTAINLY a lot less expensive and pretty quick considering how long this has been going on.

Walt

Does he have dysautonomia? Is it colon or stomach? I have had vasovagal syncope triggered by colon cramps or vomiting most of my life. It's been my experience that food allergies can trigger cramps which leads to syncope. Some of my triggers are chocolate, dairy products, food additives & stress. The thing that helps most is eating whole organic foods & keep the colon in good working order. It doesn't matter what I do I have never been able to avoid syncope completely. I'm not one to take med's but I've read that Levsin S/L might help & also SSRI's. I do drink peppermint tea. A Google search might turn up more info.

Hi Bob,

Has the boy been checked for a twisted intestine or a
possible hernia that might be entrapping the intestine?
