Some doctors consider an EF of less than 50% abnormal and others it's gotta be less than 30% for abnormal. Unfortunately, if it is abnormal, there isn't anything you can do (that I know of) to improve that function.
You sound like you have what is known in the Osteopathic world as somatic dysfunction influencing your digestive issues. I treat this stuff on a regular basis with very good success when modern medicine can't pin-point a diagnosis. I use a technique called Strain and Counterstrain. You can go online to The Jones Institute and search and see if there is a practitioner close to you that has taken the visceral and lymphatics (VL) class. You may find acupuncture helpful as well.
Been there with the acid reflux, and digestive problems-- food not breaking down properly and eliminating chunks of food when voiding. I found what works the best, after all the money I put out and all the supplements I've tried is wholy tea. Now I don't sell this stuff and I'm not endorsing it --it just works and it assists your body to fix the problems so it works properly again .I found the best prices for this are on ebay, so I suggest reading up about it and giving it a try. I still, after 2 months of taking the tea 2 times a day get a short bout of acid reflux if I indulge in too many acidy foods but my digestion is back to normal and I have proper bowel movements/ voiding with very little to no chunks showing up -- corn never seems to properly break down in me
