The opening between the small intestine and the stomach can become obstructed or narrowed, usually in infants between two weeks to two months of age and this is called Pyloric Stenosis. Projectile vomiting, changes in bowel movements, constant hunger but failure to put on weight and lethargy are symptoms of Pyloric Stenosis. Surgery and hydration treatments are required, quickly, to treat the obstruction. Nutritional supplements, homeopathic remedies, acupuncture and massage can be helpful additions to surgery.
