My mother has been diagnosed with "Slow Stomach". Anyone out there know if there are changes in diet that could help? Do you know if exercise has an impact on the problem as well?

Theron-
Exercise can speed gastric emptying...not much that does not benefit from some exercise! Foods with a slightly bitter taste, chickory and espresso can stimulate digestion. I think bitters are still sold in some health food stores and they may be helpful. A bit of sliced ginger may also be helpful.

I took my grandmother to the doctor a few weeks ago and I think she was diagnosed with the same thing. They didn't call it "slow stomach" but they said her food wasn't all emptying out. I'd be interesting in any other suggestions as well.
