The Gastroparesisclinic.org offers FREE information and a 6-week psychologically-focused support program for individuals who live with Gastroparesis. The online treatment program brings together validated psychological treatments such as cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness therapy; both treatments have been shown to be effective in reducing the symptom severity and psychological distress associated with Gastroparesis.

What is Gastroparesis?
 
Gastroparesis is a digestive motility disorder where the vagus nerve is damaged. The muscles and nerves of the stomach, intestines and other GI organs become paralyzed.  This condition delays food emptying from the stomach and other GI organs which can result in serious complications and further gastrointestinal problems. 1 out of every 2 diabetics will develop Gastroparesis. This is 50 percent of all patients.
-National Institutes of Health estimates there are over 5 million Gastroparesis patients in the United States. Lack of medical education of Gastroparesis and patients not being properly diagnosed are still left untreated, suffering in silence.
 
*Gastroparesis is most commonly caused by diabetes, but can also be hereditary or occur as a result of surgery on the stomach or vagus nerve, viral infections, food poisoning, MS/Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, ALS/Lou Gehrig's disease, stroke, medications that slow contractions in the intestines such as anticholinergics and narcotics, gastric bypass, lap band, gastric sleeve surgery, smooth muscle disorders, Scleroderma, Amyloidosis, gastro esophageal reflux disease, metabolic disorders, autoimmune diseases, Mitochondrial Disease, chemo/radiation therapy, Bells Palsy syndrome, Ramsey Hunt syndrome, Anorexia nervosa and Bulimia.
*Idiopathic Gastroparesis has no known origin. Many diagnostic tests can be performed however it is still unknown to the medical profession the cause of those patients who suffer from this more rare type of Gastroparesis.
 
"The Gastroparesis Awareness Campaign Organization"
 
 Our mission is to spread world wide international public awareness and education for this debilitating GI disorder.
 
The most important issue will be continued communication with local Government on increasing federal funds for research and development. We also hold yearly public awareness activities helping to educate all state citizens and health professionals about Gastroparesis. The Gastroparesis Awareness Campaign team keeps in close communication with current bio-tech companies conducting research and studies of possible future Gastroparesis drugs (diabetic GP patients). The seventh round for individual state Government assistance declaring national events for Gastroparesis Awareness will continue winter 2014. 
 
*Don't forget to check out and order the Gastroparesis Awareness Campaign t-shirts and the official Gastroparesis Awareness magnetic ribbons.
 
TOGETHER WE WILL FIGHT FOR A CURE!

-The Key to Success for Gastroparesis is Awareness
gregt213.jpg
A huge THANK YOU to all of our Governors!

*In response to the open hunting of wolves in the states of Wisconsin and Minnesota the Gastroparesis Awareness Campaign has decided to no longer affiliate with either state government but will continue providing support for ALL Gastroparesis patients residing in both states. We do not condone hunting as a sport of these sacred animals.

God’s creatures both big and small quickly replace what lacks in compassion with society. Animals bring what patients who are sick and terminally ill need, which is, “Unconditional Love and Companionship.”
