Ulcers and LGS?

Posted by BB [64.2856] on September 12, 2007 at 16:37:24:

Walt, I'm not sure if you missed my question before, but I just wanted to post again in case you did.. I just wanted to know the difference between ulcers and LGS? I assume that LGS is worse because you have actual holes in the intestine, and ulcers are just abrasions? If so, then how come with LGS you don't, or at least I don't, feel any pain in the gut area? I thought ulcers were extremely painful. If LGS is worse than ulcers, then how come no pain? All I have is a general soreness in the gut area.

Also, where do you have the leakiness or ulcers, in the stomach or intestines?

Thanks.

Hi, BB.

LGS is the "functional" stage of GI pathology that comes BEFORE someone would have structural changes like ulcers, IBS, etc.

The initial stage is chronic stress-effect storage in the hypothalamus. Then one's genetics determine what response the body will have to that storage: GI, neurological, musculoskeletal, emotional, etc.

IF it is GI/emotional, one might get a better idea by reading Dr. Gershon's classic "The Second Brain".

The nerves in the gut are not in the lining of the gut but in the layers beneath. SO, with LGS there usually are no painful symptoms, only functional ones.

LGS is NOT "worse" than ulcers but is just a stage along the way of a process.

Hope this helps.

Walt
