How many hours does it take normally for the stomach to empty totally after a good meal. Is it a good eating habit not to eat during this time?
It takes 4 hrs to digest meat and 30 min to digest eggs. Constipation occurs often in over medication adults. Pineapple and papaya have strong digestive enzymes important for digestion. Eat whole foods, move and exercise often and chew your food well. When you do drink coffee in the early morn before exercise, it is a stimulant helping your bowel movement although it is avoided by those who wants to lose stomach fat.

How long does it take for damaged nerves to repair themselves?
Once the insulating cover of the nerve is repaired, the nerve generally begins to heal three or four weeks after the injury. Nerves usually grow one inch every month, depending on the patient’s age and other factors. With an injury to a nerve in the arm above the fingertips, it may take up to a year before feeling returns to the fingertips. The feeling of pins and needles in the fingertips is common during the recovery process. While this can be uncomfortable, it usually passes and is a sign of recovery.
I hurt the tip of my little finger (by bumping it to a cemented wall) yesterday with a small redness by the nail bed. It healed in 12hrs as I massaged it right away (w saliva).

Does eating eggs impede healing? Chinese medicine describes eggs as “fa wu,” that can cause wounds to heal slowly. Surgeons tell patients to not eat eggs, seafood, beef or lamb after surgery. What are the differences between the sources of protein?
Eggs are important for healing because they contain 9 essential amino acids, most athletes need it for muscle building and my dad used to drink raw eggs to heal his TB (lungs). Histidine () and Leucine are two of the 9 essential amino acids in eggs. Eggs plus Vitamin B rich foods are happy foods, helping happy hormones in the brain.
Eggs contain Histidine which is an amino acid that is used to develop and maintain healthy tissues in all parts of the body, particularly the myelin sheaths that coat nerve cells and ensure the transmission of messages from the brain to various parts of the body. It may be useful for treatment of mental disorders as well as certain types of sexual dysfunction. Histidine levels in the body must be balanced to ensure good mental and physical health. High levels of this amino acid have been linked to the presence of psychological disorders such as anxiety and schizophrenia, while low levels of histidine are thought contribute to the development of rheumatoid arthritis and the type of deafness that results from nerve damage. Taking histidine supplements may help relieve symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
Histidine in eggs is important to normal sexual functioning, because it gets converted into histamine, a chemical needed to stimulate sexual arousal. When taken together with vitamin B3 (niacin) and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), histidine can increase sexual pleasure by boosting histamine levels in the body. Histamine is also needed to help the immune system know when the body is experiencing an allergic reaction, and for the production of gastric juices needed for normal digestion. Research suggests that histidine also acts as a natural detoxifier, protecting against radiation damage, and removing heavy metals from the system. It may even help prevent the onset of AIDS—histidine is crucial to the production of both red and white blood cells. Like other amino acids, histidine is found in many high-protein foods such as raw eggs.
Leucine in eggs helps regulate blood sugar
Leucine works with the amino acids isoleucine and Valine to repair muscles, regulate blood sugar, and provide the body with energy. It also increases production of growth hormones, and helps burn visceral fat, which is located in the deepest layers of the body and the least responsive to dieting and exercise.
Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine are branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), and all three of them help promote muscle recovery after exercise. Leucine is the most effective BCAA for preventing muscle loss because it breaks down and is converted to glucose more quickly than isoleucine and valine. Increased glucose supplies prevent the body’s cannibalization of muscle for energy during intense workouts, so it is no surprise that this amino acid supplement is popular among professional body builders. Leucine also promotes the healing of bones, skin, and muscle tissue after traumatic injury, and is often recommended for those recovering from surgery. Because it is so easily converted to glucose, leucine helps to regulate blood sugar; a deficiency of leucine produces symptoms similar to those of hypoglycemia, which may include headaches, dizziness, fatigue, depression, confusion, and irritability.
Histamine is also essential in defending the body against invasion by potentially disease-causing agents such as bacteria, viruses and other foreign invaders. Histamine is made and stored within white blood cells (leukocytes) such as mast cells in tissues and basophils that circulate in blood. When the immune system is activated in response to foreign material entering the body, histamine is the first “defence chemical”, or more correctly, inflammatory mediator, released in the process called inflammation.

Tums: “They do have significant side effects, especially in older patients,” Dr. Logan said.

And Tums can also cause B12 deficiency and other hearth issues.
