Whenever I eat chilli or any spicy food I have headache and acidity what should I do. I like these food so much.
Hello- spicy diet result in pitta dosha prakopa in body and hence causes headache, sleep disturbances, excessive menses flow, pimples, hot flushes etc in females. First of all try to minimise the intake or it will be seriously harmful for you in long run. Use these ayurvedic medicines to counter the effect- 1. Dadimadi ghrita 1 tsp twice daily. 2. Gulkanda 1 tsp twice daily. 3. Shatavari kalpa 1 tsp twice daily. 4. Increase ghee and milk in your diet.

Fatty liver & homoeopathy-

The treatment of fatty liver depends upon what is causing it, and generally, treating the underlying cause will reverse the process of steatosis if implemented at early stage.
In most instances, treatment of fatty liver and steatohepatitis requires control of the underlying conditions.
This may include reduction of high blood triglycerides, good control of diabetes, or not drinking alcohol.
Moreover, people with liver disease or dysfunction need to be very careful about the allopathic medicines they choose to take as many common prescription and over-the-counter drugs can be toxic to the liver and severly worsen the condition and functioning of this important organ.
If ignored or left untreated, many liver diseases will lead to permanent and irreversible damage to the liver and can be a significant threat to your health.
However, homeopathy can be tried safely. The medicines are by nature gentle because it treats liver problems - or for that matter any other problem - by treating the person as a whole and each person individually. Sensitive persons require altogether different remedies and dosages than robust types.
Homeopathic treatment treats the liver sluggishness while the patient changes his diet to clear out the excess toxic materials from his body.
Remedies improves the functioning of the liver and promote health.
Homeopathy prevents problems associated with a sluggish liver such as depressed immune system, constant fatigue, obesity, sluggish digestive system, allergies, respiratory ailments, unhealthy skin, irritability and so on.
The medicines treat liver disease and prevent further damage to the liver in diseases like viral hepatitis, cirrhosis, fatty liver, hemochromatosis, alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency and wilson's disease.
Remedies prevent healthy liver from damage caused by medications and alcohol.
Homeoapthy improves gall bladder functioning, reduce inflammation and help dissipate gallstones.
There are many homeopathy medicines which give great relief in fatty liver disorder. However, the correct choice and the resulting relief is a matter of experience and right judgment on the part of the doctor. The treatment is decided after thorough case taking of the patient.

Want Solution For IBS

B.A.M.S, Diploma in Nutrition and Health Education (DNHE, PG Diploma in Hospital Managment
Ayurveda, Delhi
Want Solution For IBS

Doctor, whenever I eat my meals, i’m getting the urge to defecate, whenever I finish breakfast, I get the urge, my stools are never solid etc.”- these kinds of patient’s presentations are quite common in ibs. This is a chronic, not easy to treat and frustration inducing disease.

Common symptoms of IBS-

  • Abdominal pain and discomfort.
  • Abdominal contraction increases after eating.
  • Abdominal cramps with bloating.
  • Feeling of unclear bowel.
  • Chronic diarrhea, constipation or a combination of both.
  • Flatulence.

Ayurveda explains ibs as grahani signs and symptoms are based on dosha dominance i.e. Vataj, pittaj, kaphaj grahani.

Line of treatment in ibs-

The medicines should have following qualities: deepana – carminative property, pachana – digestive, sangrahi – intestinal restorative, which increases absorption capacity of intestines laghu – lightness in the body

Home remedies for grahani (ibs)-

1. Flaxseed

Flaxseed is a good source of dietary fiber required for the swift and comprehensive passage of waste products. Plus, flaxseed is a good supplier of omega-3 essential fatty acids that are known to support the immune and digestive systems. Both constipation and diarrhea can be treated with flaxseed.

Add one teaspoon of flaxseed to one cup of boiling water. Steep for five to 10 minutes and then drink this herbal tea before going to bed. Drink daily to keep your stomach clean and free from gas.

2. Peppermint

Peppermint contains menthol oil, which has an antispasmodic effect on the smooth muscles of the digestive tract. This helps relieve bloating, gas pain and intestinal spasms. Plus, peppermint can help food pass through the stomach easily.

Add two or three drops of peppermint oil to one-fourth cup of warm water. Drink it twice a day. Continue until there is improvement in your condition.

Note: If taken in excess amounts, peppermint may cause nausea, heart problems and nervous system disorders.

3. Fennel seeds

Fennel seeds can relieve the intestinal spasms and bloating commonly associated with ibs. Plus, fennel seeds play a key role in eliminating fats from the digestive system, thus inhibiting the over-production of mucus in the intestine that contributes to ibs.

You can take one-half teaspoon of dry roasted fennel seeds powder twice daily with warm water.

4. Ginger

Ginger can reduce gas and bloating, hence it is often recommended for treating ibs. Also, ginger can reduce inflammation in the intestines and relax the intestinal muscles.

Grate a small piece of ginger and add one teaspoon of honey to it. Eat this mixture before having your lunch and dinner to get rid of diarrhea as well as improve your digestive process.

Note: Those suffering from high blood pressure should not use ginger remedies

5. Carrot

Carrots are a good source of pectin that can help prevent ibs symptoms as well as treat diarrhea and constipation.

Blend soft, cooked carrots in a blender with a little water to make puree. Add a little salt and eat one-half cup of carrot puree several times a day.

Note: Avoid eating raw carrots if it causes stomach pain.

Recommended diet and lifestyle in grahani (ibs)-

  • Regular intake of buttermilk
  • Fibrous diet
  • Cumin seeds
  • Pomegranate
  • Warm water
  • Easy-to-digest foods
  • Moderate exercise
  • Proper sleep

Lifestyle adjustments such as – fixed timt table of meals, sleeping and waking up at regular intervals, moderate exercise, yoga, stress management techniques are very useful.

Mental aspects to ibs-

Usually ibs is related with mental aspects. A patient with ibs usually suffers from anxiety or depression. In such a case, along with efforts to restore digestive health with the above said remedies, treatment to depression /anxiety should also be given. Hence treatments like shirodhara treatment (pouring medicated liquid over forehead in a stream), regular pranayama, meditation is very useful.

Some ayurvedic medicines useful in ibs-

Ayurvedic preparations like takrarishta, sanjivani vati, shankh vati, kutaj parpati, grahani kapat ras, pachamrut parpati, belagyl, kutajarishta etc. Are useful in grahani. You must consult your doctor before taking any medications.
