Your watching this video because you have choked on rice probably more than once and you are wondering “why in the world am I choking on rice? It should go down, right?”
In this video, I am going to give you an in depth look at what this is and what you need to do to keep yourself safe.
So, if you continually choke on rice or potatoes, startchy foods, etc.. you probably have something called eosiniphillic esophagitis, Whoa hard word. We can call it EE or EoE for short. This is common in adults and children. There isn’t that much known about eosiniphillic esophagitis at this point, but I can tell you about my experiences with it and how I have dealt with it. Let’s have a look.
1. Never rush when eating. Take your time, chew your food well and don’t eat fast especially when your stomach is empty and you are really hungry.
2. Drink plenty of water. Drink water before you eat any food. Hot water or tea I believe relaxes the esophagus. Drink sips of water between every 2 or so bites when eating. Keep your esophagus moist throughout the day.
3. Do not eat trigger foods first. Start with the “wet foods” like sauces or vegetables on your plate before you eat the rice or bread.
4. Sit with a good posture when eating. Avoid craning your neck, twisting your neck, slouching, or sitting in a position that is going to kink the esophagus or make it harder for the food to get down to your stomach.
5. Practice blocking the nasal passage when swallowing. You know that feeling like when you’ve got a cold and that post nasal drip snot is running down the back of your throat? And instead of horking it out, you swallow it? Practice swallowing like that when you eat. Push the food up and close the nasal passage, then using gravity and your esophagus to make the food go down.
6. Don’t eat right after strenuous activity. Your throat is probably dry from breathing heavy and stress seems to play a factor in triggering ee, so try to drink plenty of water before wolfing down some rice after a workout.
7. Avoid sitting in the same position for hours at a time. If you are working on a computer or watching TV, change positions from time to time and take breaks.
8. Snack more. What better way to make sure the ole pie hole stays working right than to give it a test run! I find I usually get the choking on rice bit when I haven’t eaten for a long period of time, like first thing in the morning or after skipping a meal.
9. Possibly use an athsma inhaler? Personally I think that EE is the new asthma. It’s probably a result of some top secret government testing, but that’s just a conspiracy theory.
10. Get good sleep, don’t stress out, don’t smoke and don’t do drugs!
