Dear Mr. lybrate-user, please avoid Milk, fruit juice, spicy and fatty meals for a month. Take small frequent meals rather than overfilling yourself. Motioning walk or jogging will help. Reduce associated stress if present. If there is no improvement inspite of all these consult doctor for complete evaluation and acid suppression drugs for few month.

It is not like that and you cannot mix the two words -- water and fluid. All have separate identity. Also that its mere a habit of one own culture and habit. So you can continue with what ever you are doing. I recommend drink water according to your thirst only and no excess water.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Anal sex is never unhealthy. But you should not do anal sex with anyone unless you examine the anus insides for piles, hemorrhoids, fistula, rashes, cuts etc. Also make sure to clean the anus thoroughly for feces. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, you need to take homoeopathic nux vom 200, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach. You can also try homoeopathic liver tonic liv-t (sbl company).
