Acidity: things to do: eat slowly. Have frequent meals instead of one large meal at a time. Have curds or lassi to decrease acidity. Drink 6, 7 glasses of water per day. Things not to do: avoid spicy and fatty food. Avoid eating eggs. Do not sleep immediately after having a meal. Do not be angry over anyone. It increases the acidity in the stomach. Do not take stress. Constipation: drink 6, 7 glasses of water everyday. Take diet rich in fibre like vegetables, fruits. Avoid fast foods like pizza, bread, etc. Drink warm water after getting up in the morning. Do exercises preferably in the morning. Even walking or jogging can help.

Health Tip to Stay Healthy

What are the different symptoms of heart attack, cardiac arrest and stroke?

Many people put cardiac arrest, heart attack and a stroke in the same category. But all these conditions differ in symptoms, severity and background. Making a difference between these three health issues is really important, in order to know how to help a patient and how to prevent any of the conditions becoming more severe. To learn and educate yourselves more, read the full explanation of these conditions below:

1. Heart attack

This represents a circulation disorder. In case a person's blood flow is blocked or oxygen deprived, the blood does not get to the heart muscle and if left untreated immediately, could kill the organ. It is important to know that the heart is still working, when someone suffers a heart attack.

2. Cardiac arrest

This condition is known as an electrical disorder. When someone's electrical activity in the heart is disrupted, tachycardia happens and the blood flow immediately stops moving thought the body. When this happens, the heart stops working altogether.

3. Stroke

This is also known as a brain disorder. Strokes are divided into three types:

Ischemic stroke- when the artery carrying blood and oxygen to the brain is blockedtransient ischemic attack (tia)  also familiar as a mini stroke; it occurs when there is a short artery blood flow to the brainhemorrhagic stroke- this represents a ruptured artery inside the brain

Heart attack symptoms:

Here are the most common symptoms that can indicate heart attacks:

(angina) burden inside the chest, mistaken for indigestion. It repeats every few minutes. body pain- especially in the neck, back, abdomen, jaw, arms (particularly the left one) wheezing and shallow breathingcold sweatingdizziness and fatigue episodesanxietycoughingnausea

Treatment for these symptoms is usually via medication and incorporating a healthy diet.


Cardiac arrest symptoms:

These symptoms often occur minutes before cardiac arrest happens. Here they are:

Weakness black out fainting shallow breaths chest pain excessive palpitation

In some cases the person can also identify the following symptoms:

Sudden collapse shortage of breath weak or no pulse little or no responsiveness

Cardiac arrests are dangerous, because the symptoms occur rapidly and are usually lethal.


Stroke symptoms:

Nausea blurred speech face, arm or leg numbness or paralysis (especially on one side) headaches and vomiting mental disorientation, forgetfulness of names and places, distraction and loss of concentration impaired vision and double vision excessive sweating walking issues and dizziness transient ischaemic attack (tia)

Gastric upset (probably hyperacidity or mild gastritis) following earlier treatment, should be settling down in a few days. The unease can be corrected by taking small meals more frequently. Plus avoiding remaining hungry or on empty stomach for long time. Avoiding excess tea or coffee also alcohol and aerated sweetened drinks like colas. Keep away from bakery items and pastries. It is better to exercise daily for over 1 hour, even brisk walk itself is fine, certain yogasanas also help. If symptoms are persistent, then it is better to consult your doctor or come back here. Using PPI to reduce excess acid is beneficial. Thanks.

My acidity problem started around jan 2013. Initially, I would feel too full or have slight burning sensation in the stomach after a heavy/spicy meal, which would further lead to a feeling of anxiety in the chest in the middle of the night. Hot/luke warm water and a quick bite of banana brought instant relief. A few months later, this became a more frequent phenomenon (twice a week) to feel heavy and experience burning sensation. In sep 2013, after a visit to a general physician, I was prescribed pantascot 50mg in case of severe burning. I took this medicine only in worst case scenarios. There was slight improvement. Apr 2014, after experiencing the symptoms for over a month - a visit to the general physician, I was prescribed digene syrup (between meals) and pantascot 50mg (empty stomach) for 30 days. This course brought significant changes and I felt quite comfortable for a good long time. Sep 2014, the burning sensation & chest anxiety recouped once again. Another visit to general physician, I was asked to repeat the same course of digene and pantascot. Additionally, a full body checkup was performed (blood profile, thyroid, sugar etc.). All reports were normal while there was asymptomatic diagnosis of thyroid. Doctor advised a retest of thyroid in 3-6 months as the test results weren't alarming. Another thyroid test in mar 2015 revealed nothing significant. The burning sensation slowly started increasing in apr 2015. Whether there was too much gap between meals or heavy meals, in both instances chest anxiety was experienced with a feeling of panting/lack of air (experiencing tightness of clothes). Since apr 2015, pantascot became a regular dose to lead a peaceful day. Due to increasingly frequent chest anxiety and no significant results of pantascot, endoscopy was performed in aug 2015. Test report: duodenum shows diffuse erythema endoscopic impression- duodenitis - acidic peptic disease, no ulcer. Medicines prescribed: before meals - omeprazole 20 mg (45 days) twice a day after meals - tinidazol 500 mg + ulcer od 500 mg (14days) but after the medicines were over I am back to square one. I do understand that homeopathy has the best solution for this and hence request you to please revert.

Hi, Constipation and gas-formation along with bloated abdomen are inter-related. So, need to treat the constipation first. Some causes of constipation include: Antacid medicines containing calcium or aluminum Changes in your usual diet or activities Colon cancer Eating a lot of dairy products. Eating disorders Irritable bowel syndrome Neurological conditions such as Parkinson's disease or multiple sclerosis Not being active Not enough water or fiber in your diet Overuse of laxatives (Over time, this weakens the bowel muscles) Pregnancy Problems with the nerves and muscles in the digestive system Resisting the urge to have a bowel movement, which some people do because of hemorrhoids Some medications (especially strong pain drugs such as narcotics, antidepressants, or iron pills) Stress Under active thyroid (hypothyroidism) Management: Try these steps for your constipation problem: Drink two to four extra glasses of water a day (unless your doctor told you to limit fluids for another health reason). Try warm liquids, especially in the morning. Add fruits and vegetables to your diet. Eat prunes and bran cereal. Isabgol, also known as "psyllium husk," is a common health supplement used to treat constipation, other digestive problems, and a few non-digestive problems. It contains 70 percent soluble fiber and, as a result, acts as a bulk-forming laxative. The effectiveness of isabgol largely depends on your individual health needs and the manner in which you take it.Usually, you will need to take 1 to 2 tsp (5 to 10 ml) of isabgol with 1 cup of water (240 ml) or fluid daily at night until your constipation passes. The exact dosage may vary depending on age, medical condition, and response to treatment, however. Eat a well-balanced diet with plenty of fiber. Good sources of fiber are fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole-grain bread and cereal (especially bran). Drink 1 1/2 to 2 quarts of water and other fluids a day (unless your doctor has you on a fluid-restricted diet). Fiber and water work together to keep you regular. Avoid caffeine. It can be dehydrating. Check on milk. Some people may need to avoid it because dairy products may be constipating for them. Exercise regularly. Go to the bathroom when you feel the urge. Avoid taking unnecessary stress. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Biocombination-4/ thrice daily for 4 weeks.

What is fatty liver?

What is fatty liver?

Fatty liver, or steatosis, is a term that describes the build-up of excess fat in the liver. While it's normal to have some fat in your liver for its regular functioning when fat makes up at least 5% of the liver its termed as fatty liver. Fatty liver can be a completely benign (Not harmful) condition and usually does not lead to liver damage. However, once there is a build-up of simple fat, the liver becomes vulnerable to further injury, which may result in inflammation and scarring of the liver.

Causes of fatty liver include:
Alcoholism- Most common cause
Obesity
hyperlipidemia, or high levels of fats in the blood
Diabetes
Genetic inheritance
Rapid weight loss
Side effect of certain medications, including aspirin, steroids, tamoxifen, and tetracycline.

Treatment:
There isn't a medication or surgery to treat fatty liver. Lifestyle modifications like-
Limiting or avoiding alcoholic beverages
Managing your cholesterol
Losing weight
Controlling your blood sugar
Avoiding high amount of fatty and sugary foods
Dietary modification-Increasing fiber like fruits and vegetables, Whole grain cereals, sprouts
Exercising- 45-60 minutes at least 4-5 days/week
