I'm sure alot of you are familiar with this website-UNC Center for Functional GI & Motility Disorders in Chapel Hill/North Carolina. For those who are not, check out their website. The descriptions of how the small and large intestine work are very good. Also descriptions on how stomach and rectum and pelvic floor function and disfunction. I came across this while looking for an explanation for how bacterial overgrowth occurs in the small intestine. They have a good explanation of this and kind of take you threw the whole digestive process-for me- very enlightening. small intestine page- http://www.med.unc.edu/medicine/fgidc/smintestine.htm large intestine page-http://www.med.unc.edu/medicine/fgidc/lgintestine.htm
I agree, these links are beneficial to explaining what motility is. But I have yet to find what helps a motility problem. Propulsid helped, but it is off the market now. I feel hopeless. The only thing that helps me, and believe me I tried everything, is Perdium in the yellow container. I believe it is 18% stimulant. Without this, I can go over a week without any relief. Everything builds up - including gas.Let me know if there is a "magic" pill to increase motility.
