Sedentary lifestyle usually leads to belly fat. To increase your metabolism you should manage the quantity of meals according to your daily physical & mental activity. Drink loads of water & include maximum salads & veggies in your diet. If possible add 15 -20 minutes of crunches to your daily routine regards.

abdominal pain on its own doesnot signify any thing. as you had intercourse during fertile days, wait for 50 days from the date of last period and check for pregnancy, If pain was accompanied by some other symptoms you can suspect something. as it is simple pain and disappeared on its own forget about it

its only Hyperacidity. constipation is one common cause or irregular food habits, irregular sleeping habits, junk food, taking lot of chilies, tea, coffee etc., anxiety are some of the other causes. see what is causing in your case and take corrective steps. in general to reduce acidity follow the measures like taking plenty of water atleast 2.5 to 3 litres in a day regularly, avoid junk food and outside food. take only home cooked food. for some reason if you need to take outside food take hot food meaning direct from the pan or freshly cooked food. avoid all the road side food. have some physical activity like morning walk/jogging/yoga/dancing etc., daily. maintain regular sleeping hours. with all these steps if you are still having problem or if you are constipated come back for further advise. good luck

Treat Gastric Problems Naturally

Treat Gastric Problems Naturally

Also known as flatulence, gastric problems do not really mean any kind of disease. Rather, these occur as a result of some underlying condition or some distress affecting the digestive system. Gastric problems generally take their toll on the health of the person by showing their effects either as stomach pain or by making the person lose his appetite. These gastric problems generally come along with some of the serious health conditions like diarrhoea or problems like indigestion. It is now easy to treat flatulence by using the remedies that are readily available in households. 

Forms of gastric problem
Gastric problems do not generally occur alone and they usually come along with other conditions like digestive distress, diarrhoea or even cramps. Commonly this condition can be seen in three forms in a person. One is burping, the second form is belching and the third is flatulence. Each has their own magnitude of impact on the person. All three causes annoying effects to the person and can be taken care of with the help of some home remedies. The gastric problem can be of two types. One is the acute gastritis and the other is chronic gastritis. The first problem can be cleared off within few days time and the second problem needs some extra care and treatment. 

Symptoms of gastric problem
Some cases of gastric problem can be minor and can be taken care of easily. These problems can be resolved in a matter of one or two days. Other forms of flatulence can be severe and can cause other weaknesses in the body. Doctors say that gastric problems can be identified with the help of few easily comprehensible symptoms. 

Some of the common symptoms of the gastric problems are

  • Constant pain in the abdominal region
  • Indigestion
  • Loss of appetite 
  • Repeated vomiting and nausea
  • Increased pressure and pain in the chest area
  • Persistent headache
  • Sudden dizziness during work

Solution for the problem
There are some common home remedies for gastric worries which include: 

  • A little cinnamon powder can be mixed with a glass of warm milk and can be taken along with honey.
  • 2 spoons of apple cider vinegar must be mixed with a glass of warm water and cooled to the room temperature and drunk.
  • Equal amounts of fennel, ginger and cardamom must be ground together and a pinch of hing must be added to it and mixed with a cup of water. It must be taken twice a day.
  • 1 spoon each of carom seeds and black salt must be added to buttermilk and the solution has to be drunk.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user. Do as per advice by your physician. Still you try few homeopathic meds. E. G carbo veg 200 these meds should be taken after proper case taking. So you won't have to depend on antacids if you have acid reflux as you mentioned till then take cold milk at night. Avoid oily spicy food. No backery products. Drink plenty water get well soon.

A nephrologists opinion would be better choice, if arterial thrombosis, a vascular surgeon may have to do thrombus removal or stenting after dislodging thrombus if minor. If partial necrosis in upper kidney, nephrologists may consider options to do surgery, partial nephrectomy or else, it's both vascular and nephrologists surgeons coordination that is required.

Hair fall can be reduced or brought under control by improving your diet. Try taking balanced and on time meals (to reduce acidity/ gas problem). Include sprouts, fruits, leafy vegetable and some dry fruits regularly in your diet. Wash with mild shampoo to avoid damage to already weak hair shaft. If hair fall persists after these measures consult a qualified dermatologist.

I understand your problem. This can be due to 1.kidney /ureteric stone on right side. Please get urine routine µscopic examination, x-ray of abdomen KUB, &later ultrasound of abdomen if these tests are abnormal. 2.it can be due to indirect original hernia &requires examination by a General surgeon.

Hi lybrate-user. You have to follow some basic things so that you get better results in a short period of time. 1) take solid diet two times in a day and liquid diet two times in a day 2) drink only 100-150 ml of lukewarm water during meals …. 3) don’t drink water before meal for one hour and one hour after meal… 4) avoid oily, spicy, junk, fermented and stale foods…. 5) avoid late night sleeping habits … 6) avoid coffee and tea. A) take 40 ml of AUDUMBARAVLEHA before meals along with 30 ml of water. B) take 2-2 tablets of sanjivani vati and kanaksundar rasa after meals do all things for 3 days. Gives you good result. THANKS.
