I tried to look up how long it takes to digest your food and the answer was 24 hrs, then found lots of answers from 1 hr to 24. How long does it take for your stomach to break down food - not the complete digestion process? After accidentally swallowing a heaped tb of borax - thought it was my vitamin powder - thats how groggy and staggering around in pain I am still by lunchtime - it made me vomit but up came what Id eaten for breakfast - a little meat & veg. I was surprised to find in exactly the same size & condition I ate them in 3 hrs before. I do have bad digestion but shouldn't they be broken down in 3 hrs. Could this be the cause of some of my pain?

My problems started about two weeks ago. Everytime I eat, drink, or even on an empty stomach, my stomach or digestive tract makes the loudest weirdest noises. I also tend to get really gassy after I do eat. I eat really well, juicing in the morning, raw fruits and veggies through the day. I'm not perfect. I do eat bad things at times also, but overall, I'm a healthy eater.
After all this started I began a regimen of ACV and baking soda (Ted's remedy) and after I drink it my stomach feels acid-like (not much relief). Should I stop the ACV? I have been taking probiotics. I don't know what to do as this problem is VERY embarrassing, especially since I am in college and my stomach is having a party in the middle of all my classes. Please help?! ?Replied by Mmsg
