DNB (ENT), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist,
Food poisoning is caused by consumption of food infected with bacteria. If you have symptoms like stomach pain, vomiting, nausea and fever within 6 - 8 hours of having food then it may be food poisoning and in that case you must see a doctor at the nearest hospital at the earliest for prompt management with antibiotics and iv fluids.

Dear lybrate-user. Your's are the symptoms of colitis. It could be amoebic or part of inflammatory bowel disease. The best investigation is stool routine microscopy examination. Colonoscopy is required if your symptoms doesn't improve after taking antibiotics and antiamoebic. You can consult me with stool report.

Dear lybrate user depending upon the medicines for long time surely not good for your health. Try to correct your digestive system with proper diet and lifestyle. Avoid the causes for gastric problems and take the necessary precautions. Long time popping omez d will disturb other organs in the body. -take avipattikar choorna 1tsp with warm water regularly before meals. -taking lemon water after every meals will accelarate your digestive system.

After swallowing, food passes through the esophagus into the stomach across the lower esophageal spinchter (les). Normally this les prevents reflux of ingested food. But when this spinchter becomes weak, food refluxes from stomach into esophagus. Sometimes it can come in mouth as well. This is gerd or gastro esophageal reflux disease.

What is hyperacidity?
It is an uncomfortable burning sensation that often times creeps up the throat, and is a symptom more so than a disease. It is caused by acid reflux.

•Take 3-6 gm of liquorice (mulethi) root powder with warm milk.
•Drink cold milk without any additives. Make it more effective add one teaspoonful of ghee to it.
•Eat overripe bananas during an attack of acidity. They have higher amounts of potassium making it even more effective.
•Boil one cup of water and to it add one tsp of Fennel (souf). Cover and leave overnight. Strain the water in the morning, add 1 tsp of honey (shahad).Taken this prepration 3 times a day.
•Chew Cumin (jeera) or boil it in water. Drink the water when it has cooled down.
•Chop some mint leaves, add them to a pot of boiling water and drink this water after cooling it.
•To relieve acidity crush two pods of cardamom (with or without the skin), boil the powder in water and drink the cooled juice for instant relief.
•Crush ginger, mix it with a small piece of jaggery (gud) and keeping sucking on it allowing the juice to slowly reach the stomach.
• One teaspoon of amla powder twice a day to help keep acidity way.
