For 10 days everything was fine except weakness then on one day after eating some different food I felt like suffocated then suddenly I had a loose stool at least 4 times within an hour then my body also got heated but suddenly after drinking electoral powder I feel better then since that day to till today that is since 30 days i am having bowel movements only in the early-morning that too in semi solid yellow color stool after that I feel weak and totally empty stomach then after that since 3 days i am having fenugreek seeds with yogurt after my bowl moment I mean in the early morning with empty stomach since 3 days i am doing this but a little change occurred my bowl timing shifted to 7-8 am in the morning first i'll get a yellow coloured a bit solid stool following with semisolid stool. Sir what exactly is happening to me i am worried is there any chance of getting serious issues is my colon not absorbing fats and electrolytes or when I was admitted in hospital they gave me a lot of injection may be antibiotic is it. Its side effects if so. Is there any home remedies which can get back to me normal the place where I stay is a small village which is very away from good hospitals sir it will be helpful if you can help me with home remedies. If not can you tell me any home test which can estimate the seriousness of my condition.

General Physician,
You don't have to worry so much you have probably got acute gastroenteritis. Which has now turned into chronic occasional. Gastric infection. You should take plenty of water by mouth. Sometimes one gets infested by intestinal warms normally one should get dewarming done at least once in a week if not six monthly. By single dose medicine like albendazole or mebandazole. Consult a doctor near your locality he will help you.

About acid reflux I am facing this problem Please give some basic Medical suggestions.

MBBS, Diploma in Cardiac Emergencies in General Practice
General Physician,
About acid reflux I am facing this problem Please give some basic Medical suggestions.
Basic suggestions for reflux: Favour low-fat, high protein foods. For instance, choose a chicken instead of pasta with a rich, creamy sauce. Eat more often, as long as you cut back on your portions. Smaller meals are easier on your stomach. Stop eating before you get too full. It also helps to slow down, since you may not feel full until 15-20 minutes after you start to eat. Notice -- and avoid -- foods or drinks that seem to bring on or worsen your heartburn. These may include: Coffee or tea. Anything that’s fizzy or has caffeine in it Alcohol Citrus fruits, such as oranges and lemons Tomatoes and products that contain tomatoes, such as tomato sauce and salsa Chocolate Mint or peppermint Fatty or spicy foods, such as chili or curry Onions and garlic Put blocks under the legs at the head of your bed to raise it at least 4 to 6 inches. This helps keep your stomach's contents down. Don’t just pile on more pillows. It doesn’t work, because this position may put more pressure on your belly. Stop eating at least 2 or 3 hours before lying down. If you nap, curl up in a chair instead of in bed. Sleeping upright can help. Don’t wear tight clothes or tight belts. If you smoke, stop.

How to Overcome Snoring

MBBS, D.P.H
General Physician, Gurgaon
How to Overcome Snoring

1. Loose weight. Can reduce fatty tissue in the back of the throat and decrease or even stop snoring.

2. Exercise can also help to stop snoring. As well aiding weight loss, exercising your arms, legs, and abs, for example, also leads to toning the muscles in your throat, which in turn can lead to less snoring.

3. Quit smoking. Smoking irritates the membranes in the nose and throat which can block the airways and cause snoring.

4. Avoid alcohol, sleeping pills, and sedatives because they relax the muscles in the throat and interfere with breathing.

5. Establish regular sleep patterns. Create a healthy bedtime ritual with your partner and stick to it.

6. Clear nasal passages. If you have a stuffy nose, rinse sinuses with saline before bed. If you have allergies, reduce dust mites and pet dander in your bedroom or use an allergy medication. Pt nasoclear nasal drop inboth nostril before sllep.

7. Keep bedroom air moist. Dry air can irritate membranes in the nose and throat, so if swollen nasal tissues are the problem, a humidifier may help.

8. Change your sleeping position. Elevating your head four inches may ease breathing and encourage your tongue and jaw to move forward. Sleep on your side instead of your back.

 9. Try an anti-snoring mouth appliance.

10 throat exercises to prevent snoring

A. Repeat each vowel (a-e-i-o-u) out loud for three minutes a few times a day

B. Place the tip of your tongue behind your top front teeth. Slide your tongue backwards for three minutes a day.

C. Close your mouth and purse your lips. Hold for 30 seconds.

D. With mouth open, move jaw to the right and hold for 30 seconds. Repeat on left side.

E. With mouth open, contract the muscle at the back of your throat repeatedly for 30 seconds.

I experience pain in stomach. I have a desk job but even with conscious efforts to do some walking in office doesn't help. I cannot have anything made of refined flour, besan, sprouts. It causes me bloating and heaviness in my stomach. I also have low digestion capacity. I am largely a vegetarian and have fish very rarely may be once in 3 months. Kindly advise.
