I am suffering from solar plexus.
It is often and very frequent. Can anyone advice me.
solar plexus Plexus (from the Latin for ‘braid’) is the name used to describe a network of nerves; a ‘spaghetti junction’ which many nerves pass through and where their branches split off to merge with those of others. A plexus such as this one, where most of the nerves belong to the autonomic nervous system, also embeds relay stations — the ganglia where sympathetic nerve fibres coming from the spinal cord relay at synapses with the post-ganglionic nerves that then proceed to their destination on smooth muscles or glands.

Let me tell you how can your digestive system be regularized. First of all have a look at your life style. Regular sleep and dietary habbits, in most of cases do suffice. Any addictions, may be smoking, drinking, tobacco chewing etc. Also have bad effects on digestion. In addition, compulsorily mixed type of salad must be present at each time when you eat. Add fruits of season to lunch. Drink a lot of water. Extra effort for the problem may be taken in the form of use of honey in a specified manner I can tell according to age and weight is excellent remedy. A week or so, if followed, definitely will be helped. Regards.

Anal fissure improves with general measures but may require surgery. Piles of an early grade also improves with general measures. The general measures I would suggest are 1. Take lot of vegetables & fruits in your diet 2. Avoid chillies & spices 3. Take lot of fluids 4. Avoid constipation 5 periodically do anal exercises (alternately contracting & relaxing the buttocks, anal area & upper thighs) 6. Take sitz bath 3-4 times a day. This means sitting in a tub of warm water & doing anal exercises 7. Atleast once get it examined by a general surgeon.

I think if your symptoms are not controlled by mesalazine, i would like to evaluate the symptoms and reports. We can change some medications if still it is not improved we can treat this by surgery.

I have fissure since last to last year for 4-5 months. I got cured with homeopathy. I continued to take homeopathy for next one year. But when I eat high protein content food like meat, eggs I get this trouble again .then I apply some lotion (kailas jeevan) to heel it. It goes after 4-5 days but again come back. nowadays it has occurred again bit not getting healed. I found blood after every morning after boweling. And it is painful also. Pain remains there for whole day. How can I cure it permanently?

You might be having acute fissure. This at times takes time to heal, fissure is a kind of tear in the mucosa which is very painful. Normally if the fissure is not deep it responds to medicines and diet control. Avoid junk food, take more of liquids and take laxative to avoid constipation. You can wait for one week more with medicines and after that still you have pain and problem surgery is the only answer. Any general surgeon can take care of this problem. Wishing you good health.

Dear lybrate user, you need to take homoeopathic carbo veg 200, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach. You can also try homoeopathic liver tonic liv-t (sbl company).

Dear it can of many reasons... Get an Ecg and lipid profile done immediately. Consult a physician for clinical corelation. For acidity try the tips...1. Drink 100-500 ml of tender coconut water twice a day for relief from hyperacidity Mix equal parts of powdered fennel, licorice root, basil leaves and coriander seeds. Have ½ teaspoon of this mixture with ½ teaspoon of powdered rock candy (or unrefined sugar) 15 minutes before lunch and dinner. 2.Make a powdered mixture of equal parts of rock candy (or unrefined sugar), fennel, and green cardamom. Whenever you feel heartburn, mix 1 teaspoon of the mixture in a glass of cold milk and drink. 3.Avoid tea, coffee, and carbonated or alcoholic beverages. 4.Avoid using garlic, ginger, onions, tomatoes, and vinegar in cooking. 5.Curd should be strictly avoided at night. 6. Practice Yoga and Pranayama such as Vajrasana, Bhujangasana, Salabhasana, Bhastrika Pranayama,Shitali Pranayama and Shitkari Pranayama. 7.Drink plenty of fluids and water. 8. Avoid constipation.

Hi lybrate-user, your headache is due to your gastric irritation. Don't leave your stomach empty. Please try to have small frequent meals so that stomach is not empty and there won't be any gas accumulation. Please try to drink hot water boiled with cumin seeds or dried ginger. Please try to avoid spicy dishes, bakery foods etc.

Mr. lybrate-user, please be realistic in expectations and imagination. You say you have piles since 7-8 yrs, I suppose you are symptomatic intermittently, and you think it is stage 4. You have pain now. You have changed your habits since 6 months- does that mean you have not consulted any doctor since 7-8 yrs, or have seen a doctor. Coming to solution- if you are able to push the mass inside by yourself- it is stage 3. Getting cure by Ayruveda- I cannot comment on. I would suggest you see a surgeon, get yourself evaluated and you would need a surgical correction, for relief. You would be surprised why you did not opt for this treatment earlier, as many of my patients tell me. What hinders you from seeking surgical intervention is fear, better get out of it, before you develop further complications of your Pile mass.

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

Do not stop breast feeding. Your child is absolutely normal and does not require any medication. This condition is called breast milk diarrhea. This is very normal that child who is on exclusive breast feeding may pass 10 times motion per day. You need to consult your pediatrician only when there is blood in stool. If your child is alert active playful accepting mothers milk and gaining weight 20 to 30 gms a day you need not worry about. Please continue exclusive mothers milk for first 6 months. No medical intervention is required. Best wishes.
