What Causes Acidity?  Understanding its Symptoms and Causes

Acidity - gastritis: understanding the symptoms and causes

Gastritis/acidity is a group of diseases or symptoms where there is excess secretion of acid by the gastric glands of the stomach.

If you have upper abdominal discomfort or pain, stomach fullness, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, indigestion, belching, waterbrash or irregular bowel movement, then you must be suffering from acidity or gastritis. It is a problem which becomes worse when an individual has poor eating habits and improper lifestyle.

Gastritis: swelling of stomach lining

Various factors like spicy food, medicines, tobacco, alcohol etc. Can cause increase in gastric acid production and disturb, weaken or damage the normal stomach lining. Gastritis occurs when there is an imbalance between the acid production and damage to the stomach lining, resulting in swelling of the stomach lining.

Gastritis a very common disorder of all age groups

Gastritis is of two types - acute gastritis (which occur suddenly) and chronic gastritis (develops over a period of time). In India gastritis is a very common disorder which occurs at any age but is more widespread in the adolescent age group (12-17 years). Adolescence is a change from childhood to adulthood, the period in which a lot of physical and psychological changes occur increasing the risk of gastritis.

Multiple factors cause gastritis

Various factors like spicy food, medicines (pain killers), tobacco, alcohol, emotional disturbance, psychological stress, smoking, alcohol intake and bacterial infection lead to gastritis.

Besides these, the three most important factors include helicobacter pylori infection (bacterial infection), use of painkiller medicines and autoimmunity (body loses its own immunity and attacks itself). These factors in the long term may even cause an ulcer (permanent breakage of the stomach lining), acid reflux disorder (food coming back to mouth after swallowing) and stomach cancer.

What does Ayurveda suggest?

In Ayurveda, agni refers to fire like activity in alimentary canal responsible for digestion of food which is influenced by the status of doshas. When samana-vata associates with kapha in turn produces weak digestive power (agni-mandya). Consuming food against the code of dietetics i. E. Ahara-vidhi vidhana and ahara-vidhi-visheshayatana (method of taking food) lead to a number of diseases related with food. Eating food before the previous food is digested, untimely food, eating too much of spicy or oily food, eating when not hungry, drinking too much water during food and at a time unless required, very hot high fatty-fried food, stale food, heavy diet, excess consumption of horse gram, vitiate all the three body humours (tridosha) also contribute to the symptoms of gastritis.

Due to the sourness of consumed food the liquidity of pitta increases further decreasing the capacity for digestion (agnimandya). Hence, rasadi-dhatu is not formed in a proper manner. This, after a certain period, manifests as amlapitta (hyperacidity).

Symptoms of gastritis vary among individuals

Symptoms of gastritis vary among individuals, and in many people even there are no symptoms. It also depends on the duration of disease, whether it is of acute (coming on suddenly) or chronic (causing symptoms over a long period of time) type.

The most common symptoms of acute gastritis include:

  • Abdominal bloating or stomach fullness,
  • Belching (expelling air from the stomach through the mouth)
  • Waterbrashes (sour fluid or tasteless saliva into the mouth)
  • Upper abdominal pain or discomfort
  • Nausea/vomiting feeling
  • Irregular bowel movement
  • Recurrent indigestion,
  • Chest burn or gnawing feeling between meals (heartburn)
  • Hiccups etc.

In addition to this, symptoms of chronic gastritis may include weight loss, continuous flatulence, black stool, loss of appetite and even anemia.

How to diagnose gastritis?

To diagnose gastritis, performs a thorough physical evaluation, and may recommend a blood test for h. Pylori screening, stool test for blood in the stool. Abdominal x-rays or barium studies (upper or lower) may demonstrate the presence of thickened stomach lining and folds that are signs of inflammation in the stomach.

Sometimes, an endoscope, a thin tube containing a tiny camera, is inserted through the mouth and down into the stomach to look at the stomach lining (endoscopy). The doctor will check for inflammation and may perform a biopsy, in which a tiny sample of tissue is removed and sent for analysis of gastric lining.

Dose minoxidil-5% topical application causes hirsutism?
Is this safe for young female?
Dear lybrate-user, •Minoxidil was actually developed as an oral drug for high blood pressure, but patients using Minoxidil were experiencing a side effect of hair growth. •The company developing Minoxidil found a great way to make money from the side effects and they started marketing minoxidil as a treatment male pattern baldness. •The perfect pharmacological mechanism of how Minoxidil regrows hair is really unknown. •The hair growth with the use of Minoxidil will betemporary. Hair growth disappears if the use is discontinued. With the long term use of minoxidil ,you will get thin hair [tellogen hair] which will never convert into your natural thick hair. •Minoxidil also has a lot of adverse reactions like irritation, Itching, dryness and redness and burning on the scalp.

What is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome?

What is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome?

Polycystic ovarian syndrome or PCOS is a condition in which a woman experiences fluctuation of hormone levels, estrogen, and progesterone which causes cysts in her ovaries, dysfunctional menstrual cycle, cardiac problem, fertility and changes in appearance. Hormones are chemical messengers that can trigger a number of issues in the body. Long term problems due to PCOS can be avoided with an early diagnosis and a proper treatment.

Causes

  • Genetics and hormonal imbalance have been identified as the main causes of PCOS although the exact reason has not been discovered.
  • Overproduction of androgen, a male hormone in a woman can cause small lumps in the ovaries, irregular development of eggs and abnormal insulin level.

Symptoms
The severity of the symptoms depends on the constitution of the person but the most common one is irregular periods. PCOS occurs when there is a decrease in sex hormones which can lead to the development of certain male features like:

  • Deeper voice
  • Growth of hair on face, toes, stomach, chest and back
  • Reduction in breast size
  • Loss and thinning of hair

There are other symptoms as well which can help one to determine the syndrome including:

  • Oily skin leading to acne
  • Irregular egg formation causing fertility problems and miscarriages
  • Depression, anxiety and mood swings
  • Hyperinsulinemia, that refers to the presence of too much insulin in the body which can cause obesity
  • Difficulty in breathing while sleeping

The severity of the symptoms varies but if you are experiencing any of these problems, it is advisable to seek a professional consultation. A healthy lifestyle, regular exercise, nutritious diets are some of the preventive measures you can take. There are hormone regulating medicines and treatments that attempt to curb the condition but there is no permanent cure.

Hello. My name abhay mandal. My age start 22 in after two month and my hight is 5' Sir, My problem is how to increase...
You are really short abhay----------we all are aware of the fact that our height increases up to a particular age and then it comes to a halt. Height increases up to the age of 18years in women and up to the age of 20 years in men. Increase in height is attributed to the production of growth hormone, called the hgh (human growth hormone), which is secreted by the pituitary gland called the master gland of our body.----------- it is rather difficult to increase height after reaching adulthood as the production of these hormones slowly stops. In most cases, the epiphyses of the long bones are fused as the last bits of cartilaginous tissue in the bones turn into solid hard bones. This prevents any further growth in longer bones. However, if the hormones are released naturally, increase in height can be observed. Homoeopathic medicines acts as a catalyst in increasing the production of these hormones.---------- increase in height at your age depends upon a no. Of factors like------------- 1. Height of parents------------------ 2. Recorded any increase in height in last 24 months------------- 3. Amount of effort you are putting in for increase in height----------- 4. How much serious are you for your height----------------- 5. Will you give 100% if I show you a direction----------- 6. Just do your bit with full determination and leave the rest to time, exercises and medicines.------------ consult me fast for homoeopathic consultation as you short of time------------------- homoeopathic medicines are absolutely safe and with no any side effects---------------------

To achieve weight loss, always think long term. There is a general approach and a specific approach as per individual patients metabolic profile. Try this general approach (see below) for 4 weeks. If this works then continue. If this is not enough then revert for further assessment and customised approach. 1. Do not eat anything sugary or sweet. Zero sweetness in diet. 2. Eat plenty of salad in lunch and dinner along with other foods. 3. Do not drink any liquid calorie like cola or fruit juices. 4. Continue brisk walks or jogging for 45 - 60 minutes every day.

Garlic Powder Benefits And Nutrition Fact

MBBS,CCA,DCA,AASECT,FPA,AAD,F.H.R.SM.I.M.S
General Physician, Gorakhpur
Garlic Powder Benefits And Nutrition Fact

Garlic powder is an excellent spice that should be kept on any spice rack. This can be an excellent replacement for fresh garlic. If you have ever cooked with garlic, then you know it is one of the most pungent and powerful flavors you can add to a dish, and garlic powder is much the same. It delivers a number of important nutrients, which provide various health benefits.

What is garlic powder?

Garlic powder is the ground form of dehydrated garlic, and it has a number of benefits over fresh garlic. When you dehydrate garlic, you extend its shelf life exponentially, so it can be stored for months or even years without losing its potency.

Furthermore, garlic powder can be a more subtle way of imbuing an entire dish with the flavor of garlic, rather than simply adding individually chopped or minced cloves. This powder is quite easy to make, and you will find it on many different meals, from pizza and ranch dressing to avocados and as an ingredient in barbecue sauce. The versatility and delicious flavor of garlic powder make it a favorite spice around the world.

What’s more? garlic powder also delivers many of the best parts of garlic, in terms of health. Using this spice regularly can give your cooking and your overall wellness a boost.

Garlic powder nutrition facts

Garlic powder has a wide range of nutrients, including vitamin c, iron, calcium, protein, dietary fiber, and a small amount of sodium and sugar. While the concentration of these nutrients is significantly less than fresh garlic cloves, particularly in vitamin c content, there are still a number of antioxidants and organic compounds like allicin that can boost your health.

garlic powder health benefits

The most important health benefits of garlic powder include its ability to lower overall cholesterol levels, improve the immune system, prevent certain cancers, and aid digestion, among others.

Balances cholesterol levels

Although garlic lacks allicin, it is the active ingredient in crushed garlic and has a positive effect on your cholesterol levels and reduces plaque buildup in the arteries and blood vessels. It can also help to lower blood pressure!

Prevents cancer

There are a number of antioxidants in garlic powder that can help to reduce oxidative stress throughout the body, relieve inflammation, and prevent cellular mutation, which can lead to cancer.

Boosts immune system

Although the vitamin c level is significantly depleted when garlic is dehydrated, there are still immune-boosting properties of this spice, coming partially from other minerals and antioxidants present in it.

Aids in digestion

If your stomach is upset or if you have indigestion, some of the organic compoundsfound in garlic powder, as well as the iron and dietary fiber, can help move your bowels smoothly and relieve constipation.

How to make garlic powder?

If you want to make garlic powder at home, it is surprisingly easy to do, provided you have raw garlic, a bit of time and patience. Follow the simple steps below and you’ll have your homemade garlic powder before you know it! the only component in garlic powder is garlic itself, although many people add salt to the mixture, which is then called garlic salt.

Step 1 – peel as many garlic cloves as you want to use (3-4 bulbs is good for a seasonal supply).

Step 2 – slice them thinly and then place them on a plate.

Step 3 – turn the oven to 175 degrees and heat the garlic cloves until they are completely dry.

Step 4 – once they are completely dehydrated, grind them in a blender or with a mortar and pestle.

Step 5 – strain the mixture so only the powder remains.

Step 6 – store in an airtight spice jar between uses.

Side effects of garlic powder

There are some dangers of consuming too much of this powder, as well as potential risks for people with certain medical conditions. The most common problems include gastrointestinal distress, problems with bleeding disorders, bad breath, muscle aches, and dizziness, among others. If you consume garlic powder in moderation, you have little risk of experiencing these side effects.

  • Bleeding disorders – for people who consume an excessive amount of garlic powder, bleeding problems have been known to worsen, so always use this spice in moderation.
  • Bad breath – as with any garlic product, this powder has a powerful smell, which can lead to bad breath, although it can also help to eliminate oral infections!
  • Muscle ache – when too much of this herb is ingested, or if you suffer from a mild allergy, it could cause muscle spasms or aches.
  • Stomach issues – stomach aches, cramping and bloating can happen if too much of this powder is consumed.
  • Dizziness and headache – some people report symptoms of headaches and dizziness, as well as lightheadedness, sweating, fatigue, and nausea if they use too much of this spice at one time.
