Sick to stomach, hard to eat

My 93 year old father has a stomach problem when eating and feels bad all the time. Help please so he can eat. My father is getting so thin. Please help him enjoy some food. Is there anything you can recommend? ## Hi Denise, Sorry to hear about your father's stomach problem. How long has he been dealing with this? Has he been diagnosed with anything such as IBS or Crohn's disease, or does it simply appear to be indigestion? If so, has he tried taking anything yet to help with his condition? A few ideas that come to mind are digestive enzymes, probiotics, prebiotics, senna leaf tea, & medical cannabis. Please post back with any additional information so that I or others can be of more assistance.
