There’s a common misconception that gastroparesis cannot or does not get better. The fact is, it can and often does. I’ve received countless emails and messages over the past six years from people who were diagnosed with gastroparesis, some of whom were VERY sick, whose conditions have since dramatically improved or even resolved. I’ve decided to share some of these stories — exactly as written, with permission — to illustrate that it IS possible to get better and even recover after a GP diagnosis.
These stories are meant to illustrate that gastroparesis is not necessarily a “forever” diagnosis. They are not meant as medical advice or a template for your own healing. Each person’s journey toward living well and/or getting well is unique. However, having worked with hundreds of GPers on this path, there are certainly common themes and practices that you’ll notice come up again and again.
