Hi
My son is of 8 years n he still is making bed wet at nights, consulted local doctors but thy say there is no medic...
As adults, when the bladder gets full, it sends a signal to the brain to wake up or you start dreaming about water or going to bathroom, and then you wake up, but for kids the signal isn't quite strong enough to get them awake which is why it is normal for children to wet the bed till age 6 or below. Therefore bed-wetting is a developmental issue and therefore the treatment is time, so for kids age 6 or under, they will most likely grow out of it. It becomes an issue when the child starts feeling bad about himself, when he starts to pull away from his friend because he is afraid that his friends will make fun of him. It makes matters worse when parents yell and scream at their children for bed wetting. Kids need reassurance and encouragement from parents. Children who continue to wet the bed beyond the age of 6 may not be producing enough ADH hormone at appropriate times or may not yet be attuned to their bodies' signals, or both. Behavioral changes too play a role in achieving dryness, he says. Try decreasing the amount that kids drink before bed. Parents should seek formal treatment between ages 6 and 7. There are bed wetting alarms available which are very effective on their own. But they take around 12 weeks to show the difference. If the problem is severe a pediatrician should be consulted for medication advice such as desmopressin which acts on kidneys to reduce the flow of urine. Another medication is imipramine which allows you to have better control of the bladder, affects the bladder musculature and may change sleep patterns, so kids wake up if they have to urinate. While this is cheaper than desmopressin it has more side effects on long term used. The bottom line is you should resort to medicines as last option first try reward therapy and beahvioral changes. More than 80% children at this age will grow out of it.

Ayurveda Naturally for Hyperacidity

Ayurveda Naturally for Hyperacidity

In the case of hyperacidity, gastric acid secretion from glands of stomach increases. The excess amount of acid causes a burning sensation in an upper part of the abdomen. According to Ayurveda, it is known as amlapitta. In ayurveda, the pitta dosha includes whole enzymatic, hormonal secretions and digestive juices of the body. In amlapitta, pitta dosha which is bitter increases and gets vitiated due to wrong dietary habits and lifestyle. This vitiated pitta dosha becomes sour (amla) in taste, that's why it is called amlapitta. Normally this pitta helps in digestion of food but in vitiated form it does not complete the digestive process and causes indigestion. This undigested food causes toxin formation.

Causes of hyperacidity

1) excessive physical and mental stress.

2) pitta aggravating diet like spicy, salty and fried food.

3) excessive intake of citrus fruits.

4) excessive exposure to heat like wandering in sun heat.

5) prolonged fasting.

6) modern medicine considers h. Pylori infection as the most common cause of hyperacidity.

Symptoms of amlapitta

1) burning sensation in the chest is the cordial feature of amlapitta.

2) sour eructation, bloating, abdomen distension especially after meals.

3) indigestion of the taken meals.

Management of amlapitta at sukhayurveda

1) detoxify

Hyperacidity starts when accumulated toxins begin to disrupt functions of the digestive system. We at sukhayurveda cure underlying root causes like indigestion, constipation, gastritis etc. And provide natural recommendations to remove and help prevent toxin accumulation from:

A) hard to digest food

B) poor digestion

C) poor elimination

D) mental and physical stress

Sukhayurveda detoxifying therapies for amlapitta include abhyangam full body massage, therapeutic purgation etc.

2) proper nutrition

As amlapitta is the disease of the digestive system, so, proper diet has a key role in its treatment. We at sukhayurveda provide proper diet chart to the patients of amlapitta. Pitta pacifying food is recommended. Avoid curd, citrus fruits, tomatoes, excessive salt, tea, coffee, spices and favor foods that are easy-to-digest, nourishing, cleanse the physiology, strengthen digestion and balance your body's inner intelligence. Sukhayurveda consultant advises:

A) proper use of spices and cooking oils

B) herbal preparations to improve digestion

C) proper spacing between breakfast, lunch and dinner

D) favoring foods which stimulate digestion

E) reducing consumption of foods that depress digestion

F) proper food combinations to avoid indigestion

G) non-dietary regiments to improve digestive strength including exercise, specific yoga asanas etc.

3) Ayurveda herbs

We at sukhayurveda also provide proper herbal formulations for hyperacidity and to cure its underlying cause also like constipation, indigestion, excessive stress, gastritis etc. Drugs which are pitta pacifying and improving digestion are used mainly. Amla, mulethi, draksha, kshar, shankh, shukti are mainly used to cure hyperacidity.

4) stress management

Excessive mental and physical stress also is a causative factor for hyperacidity. We at sukhayurveda also provide stress relieving programs. Our destress therapies include shirodhara, takradhara, ksheerdhara, aromatherapy, oil massage etc. Stress causes increased gastric acid secretions causing hyperacidity and it also interferes with digestive process causing indigestion. Enhancing body's ability to recover from stress is an integral part of our approach to health and well-being.

5) lifestyle and daily routine

One of the most important factors for maintaining proper health is to have a lifestyle that does not disturb body's natural rhythms. Sukhayurveda consultant reviews daily routine and creates a daily schedule that will increase balance in physiology and aid in the healing of the body. Avoid excess exposure to heat. Never lie down immediately after taking meals.

Strengthening the body's natural healing and self-repair mechanisms

We at sukhayurveda not only aim to cure the disease but also to cure the underlying causative factors. We boost one's inner power to fight with diseases naturally. The healing response is one of the most complex and coordinated activity within the human physiology and often cannot be strengthened significantly without a comprehensive natural approach.

Taking together all the sukhayurveda programs described above, aim to create the ideal mental, physical and behavioral environment for healing.

If it is repeated burping or belching immediately after meals, one possibility is that you swallow lots of air while you take your food. This can be reduced if one take food at leisurely pace. Generally eating at faster pace make us swallow air without our knowledge. Try being gentle to that speed of eating. And you will be benefited.

My wife is pregnant from 50 days. She complains pain in right lower part of stomach after sex.
Firstly you have to avoid intercourse in early weeks of pregnancy and if she is having pain in abdomen she should have a lower abdomen scan and get consult from your gynaecologist for the complaints. She should take rest and avoid exertion and should not take any pain killers unless advised by a gynaecologist.
