The right side of my body, underneath my ribs. The exact place you'd have pain if you have gall stones. Just below the liver and to the right of the stomach.Ellipse said:Where this pain is located exactly ?
Have you taken a serum test for Helicobacter Pylori? This is the bacterial agent behind ulcers in the stomach and duodenum.
I didn't know you could get a serum test for that. I had come across that bacteria in my research some months ago, which is when I started taking ginger (kills the bacteria and promoted digestion), peppermint oil (kills bacteria and some fungus and promotes stomach acid production and digestion) and a digestive aid (designed to boost stomach acid). Apparently Helicobacter Pylori infections in your stomach can reduce stomach acid production....which would mean that they could then set up residence in your small intestine due to it not being acidic enough.
Combining those with the sluggish liver protocol has really improved my health in general, along with my digestion.
Before I'd just focused on one area at once (i.e. just digestion)...seems I had to work on my liver/stomach acid/over all digestion and possible bacterial/candida infection all at once.
As I've been experimenting with sleeping in complete darkness, I'm starting to conclude this may actually be the biggest remaining contributing factor to these problems left....but I could be wrong.
