“Having attended my G.P. with stomach pain and diarrhoea, persisting over a period of three years, he referred me to a consultant who ordered a number of tests including a scope. The result of this was a diagnosis of celiac. I was referred to a dietician and a gluten free diet was organised.
I was on a gluten free diet for about 2 years. The symptoms still continued. I lost weight and felt awful (with stomach cramps and diahorea).
Having heard about The Amber Centre as my wife Mary attended I had made an appointment. After about 3 visits I can eat everything. I am not a celiac. My stomach cramp has gone. I have put on weight. My quality of life has improved totally. I thank The Amber Centre for this. Thanking you”

It put me on the right road to a healthier lifestyle and I have and would never hesitate to recommend it to someone else. Yours sincerely”

What are Stomach Problems?
Stomach Problems are any problems that occur with ones stomach resulting in bloating, wind, pain, heartburn, nausea, or vomiting.
Many stomach diseases are associated with infection. Historically, it was widely believed that the highly acidic environment of the stomach would keep the stomach immune from infection. However, a large number of studies have indicated that most cases of stomach ulcers, gastritis, and stomach cancer are caused by Helicobacter pylori infection. One of the ways it is able to survive in the stomach involves its urease enzymes which metabolize urea (which is normally secreted into the stomach) to ammonia and carbon dioxide which neutralizes gastric acid and thus prevents its digestion. In recent years, it has been discovered that other Helicobacter bacteria are also capable of colonizing the stomach and have been associated with gastritis.
Symptoms can include:
• Nausea or Vomiting
• Weight Gain
• Embarrasing Wind
