Gastroparesis is a disorder that occurs in the stomach and affects the natural movement of the muscles (motility). Due to this health problem the digestive system slows down or doesn't work at all. We can say, it is the accumulation of gas in the stomach due to indigestion.
Gastroparesis affects the normal digestion, which leads to nausea and vomiting and the result of this problem is high blood sugar levels and low nutrition. Diabetes, and post-surgery can be reason for it.
SYMPTOMS OF GASTROPARESIS
Changes in blood sugar levels
Lack of appetite
Weight loss and malnutrition
RISK FACTORS OF GASTROPARESIS
Abdominal or esophageal surgery
Infection, usually a virus
Hypothyroidism (low thyroid)
CAUSES OF GASTROPARESIS
Ayurveda, which is an ancient Indian system of curing people with herbs and holistic method says, imbalanced Vata and Pitta Dosha are the reason of Gastroparesis. Pitta is the heat or fire which controls the digestion and Vata is the air or wind. Low Pitta Dosha and Vata Dosha result in low digestive. The food we eat is digested by our digestive fire and is converted into nutrient plasma. In case of Gastroparesis the body produces ama or toxins instead of healthy nutrient plasma.
