The vomit sensation you are talking about is known as gag reflex. It is a protective mechanism of the human body to avoid the entrance of any unwanted material down the throat. In your case, you are experiencing the reflex while brushing, that means your brushing pattern might be wrong. You are taking your brush to much deeper areas than required. Also, you might not be cleaning your tongue properly. Visit your dentist and ask him about some correct brushing patterns and start using a tongue cleaner. Whenever you experience gag try to focus on some other activity or object, such as your big toe. It diverts you and thus the gag stops. Avoid mouth breathing, that increases the gag. If the problem persists even after changing your brushing/cleaning pattern and avoiding mouth breathing there is more to it. Pay a visit to both your dentist and gasteroenterologist.

जानें आपके लीवर में बीमारी के संकेत और लक्षण

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Delhi
जानें आपके लीवर में बीमारी के संकेत और लक्षण

लीवर हमारी शारीरिक गतिविधियों में अहम भूमिका निभाता है,

प्रोटीन, कोलेस्ट्रॉल, ग्लूकोज़ (शर्करा) और आयरन मेटाबॉलिसम (चयापचय) लीवर द्वारा ही शरीर के लिए उपयोगी बनते हैं। डॉ. R K Aggarwal कहते हैं  कैंसर से लेकर कब्ज़ तक हर बीमारी का कारण विषैले पदार्थ (toxins), वायरस, बैक्टीरिया, और परजीवी (parasites)  होतो हैं। यहां तक की सर दर्द कारण भी यही होते हैं।

 

आपके लीवर में खराबी होने के संकेत व लक्षण –

  • कमजोरी और थकान
  • वजन घटना
  • मतली
  • उलटी और
  • चमड़ी का पीला पढ़ना।

डॉ. आर. के. अग्रवाल कहते हैं कि लीवर हमारे पाचन तंत्र के ऊपरी हिस्से में गंदगी व विषैले पदार्थ को हटाने में मदद करता है। लेकिन हम बिना चिंता के गलतियां करते रहते हैं जैसे कि

अत्यधिक भोजन करना, शौच के लिए ना जाना।

इससे हमारे शरीर में और अधिक गंदगी जमा होती रहती है जो हमारे लीवर के लिए बहुत ही खतरनाक होती हैं और धीरे धीरे उसे बीमार बना देती है।

ये गंदगी ही हमारे शरीर की ज्यादा से ज्यादा बीमारियों का कारण होती है।

साथ ही डॉ. साहब कहत हैं यदि आप का शरीर किसी भी प्राकृतिक बदलाव को सहन नहीं कर पा रहा तो इसका मतलब आपके बॉडी सिस्टम की प्रभावशीलता में कमी है या यूं कहें कि रोग प्रतिरोधक क्षमता की कमी।  

हम में से ज्यादा तर लोग बीमारियों के नाम के पीछे भागते है। बीमारियों के अजीबो गरीब नाम सुन कर डर जाते है। इससे अत्यन्त चिंता सताने लगती है और चिंता बीमारी का सबसे बड़ा कारण होती है।

वैसे तो हर डॉक्टर को अपने मरीज को इन सभी बीमारियों से अवगत कराना चाहिए या बीमारी के नाम की बजाये शरीर के लक्षणों से समझाना चाहिए लेकिन वो ऐसा नहीं करते है इसीलिए डॉ. आर . के . अग्रवाल ने लोगों को जानकारी देने का संकल्प लिया है ताकि आप बेवजह परेशान ना हो और सही इलाज करा सकें।

Inflammatory Bowel Disease - Symptoms and Treatment

Inflammatory Bowel Disease needs to be controlled in the initial stage only so that severe symptoms can be prevented. There are a few easy treatments that need to be followed for getting instant relief and quickest recovery. 

What are the commonest signs of Inflammatory Bowel disease?

  1. Fatigue and fever: Low-grade fever can be experienced, which might invite fatigue, tiredness and weakness. Your energy levels will become too low, and thus you will lose your concentration to work. 
  2. Diarrhea: This is regarded as the commonest signs of all, and it can be quite severe in a few cases. 
  3. Stool with blood: If you find blood with stool, then it is a serious case, and this sign confirms clearly that you have got IBD.
  4. Cramping and abdominal pain: Ulceration and inflammation within digestive tract might invite both cramping and abdominal pain. Vomiting and nausea are the other two symptoms that are associated with the same.
  5. Weight loss: Your digestive system can get disturbed as a result of which you might lose weight on a frequent note. On the other hand, your appetite will get disturbed, and you will suffer from malnutrition.

What are the best ways to treat Inflammatory Bowel disease? 

  1. Lifestyle change: Proper diet should be maintained, and you should include foods with low fats, high fiber and others. Non-spicy and non-dairy foods are quite suitable in this case. Smoking, alcohol drinking and other bad habits should be curtailed from the diet. Eat healthy and drink water in abundance. 
  2. Surgery: Only for dealing severe conditions, especially ulcerative colitis and crohn's disease, surgery is chosen as the best option but this decision is normally taken by the doctor. 
  3. Medications: Specialized medications are being used like anti-diarrhoeal medications, pain relievers, and iron supplements, Vitamin-d and calcium supplements, vitamin-12 supplements and many more.
  4. Home remedies: There are few commonest homemade therapies that can treat IBD, and they are meditations, probiotics, acupuncture, turmeric, aloe Vera, fish oil and others. These remedies are the safest of all, and thus no side-effects will be faced.
  5. Doctor's assistance: Without doctor's help, you will not be able to get the quickest recovery from IBD. Therefore, you got to visit the clinic regularly in order to get the perfect treatment. There are a few therapists who can help you to get rid of unwanted emotional difficulties. A support group can also be joined for receiving moral support.

I need help to understand what might be the possible cause of frequent diarrhea that my father has. He is 75 years old and has high BP from last 10-15 years. He has a pacemaker implant (in 2011) and 2 stents (in 2013) for his heart related issues. He also has light bronchial asthma from last many years and recently Alzheimers. He is on medication for all the above ailments and is quite stable with active lifestyle. He also does regular yoga morning and evening. He is teetotaller, vegetarian and his diet comprises food with very low oil. The problem is that from last 2 years he gets sudden diarrhea, with high fever and loss of body fluids. We need to admit him to a nearby clinic for glucose and antibiotic drips and he recovers in 2-3 days and gets discharged. Blood tests and stool tests during his stay at the clinics have not revealed anything serious and he gets well with regular antibiotics such as Metronidazole or Ornof. In 2012, this happened once in about 4-5 months. Now the frequency has increased and he gets these loose motions every 2-3 months. The increasing frequency of this symptom is worrying us and we need to know if there is any deeper cause for this. What kind of investigations do we need to do and what kind of treatment will help. thanks in advance.
