Removal of gall bladder normally does not cause any problems. If you feel gaseousness, do some abdominal exercises and certain asanas like manduk asan and pawan muktasan, these should help. Also get your liver function tests done once to check liver function. Eat normal healthy diet and avoid smoking and alcohol. Excess cane sugar juice is not required.

Piles And Homeopathy

BHMS

Piles And Homeopathy

Piles (haemorrhoids) are swollen and inflamed blood vessels (veins) in rectum and anus.
 

Piles are broadly classified as follows:

  • External: Piles that are outside anal verge
  • Internal: Piles that occur inside the rectum

Causes of piles:

These include the following:

  • Genetic predisposition (weak rectal veins, walls)
  • Poor muscle tone in the rectal region
  • Constipation
  • Obesity
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Chronic cough
  • Pregnancy
  • Overuse of laxatives or enemas lifting heavy weights habitually

Symptoms of piles:

Symptoms vary depending upon the site of piles, duration of complaints and general health of the person.
External piles present as a swelling outside the anus with irritation and itching. These can be painful sometimes and usually do not bleed.
Internal piles are usually not painful but these bleed when they are irritated such as during the stool.
 
Homeopathic remedies:

1. Nitric acid - Piles with hard stool usually bleeding piles. Nitric acid acts specifically on rectum. Sphincter like sensation is chief guiding symptom
2. Aesculus hip- It is another beautiful remedy for piles for persons having habitual constipation and backache. These rarely bleed. 
3. Aloe soccotrine - Bluish appearance of the swelling. Constipation alternates with diarrhoea. Bleeding painful piles
4. Calc fluor - Hard swelling which may or may not be painful. Sensation of heaviness
5. Collinsonia - Piles alternate with heart symptoms. Sensation as it beaten with sticks.
6. Hammamalis - This a pure gold medicine for bleeding and painful piles. Espacialy for venous haemorrhage from any orifice of body
7. Millefolium- Painless bleeding in case of piles call for this remedy. Blood can be bright red.
8. Nux vom - Persons suffering from habitual constipation with the trade mark of frequent and ineffectual urging. Blind haemorrhoids. 
9. Sulphur - Long standing piles cases with sympyoms of early morning stool and bleeding per rectum. 

There are many more giants of remedies. But prescription should be made on the basis of totality of the symptoms after a proper case taking.

My doctor told me to get TSH test done for me. I am diabetic and I feel very low during working hours. I am taking diabetes medicine, still I feel lots of dizziness during the day. Doctor told me to get TSH test done. However, some family friends told me that thyroid disorders exist only in females. I am bit confused that should I go for thyroid treatment or not. Please suggest.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
General Physician, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user, diabetes is an autoimmune disease that means your own body attacks the cells that produce insulin. Similarly thyroid disease is also an autoimmune disease. And it has been found that people who have diabetes are at higher risk of having thyroid disease. As for the other part it is false that only women have thyroid disease, even men can have thyroid disease. So follow your doctors advice and get your thyroid profile done. However whether you have thyroid disease or not, can only be ascertained when your report comes.
