Acid returning to oesophagus due to reverse motility is the cause of your problem (Gastro Oesophagial Reflux Disorder, GORD or GERD). It may be an artificially produced problem. Drugs like Pantaprazole or Rabeprazole inhibit acid secretion in the stomach. The deficiency of acid, (Not Hyperacidity) causes food to remain unhydrolyzed in the stomach that prevents action of Pepsin because Pepsinogen is not changed into Pepsin properly due to inhibition of Acid secretion. Result ? Food stays longer in stomach with Pylorus closed for longer durations. The gastric motility to churn the food inside cannot push it forward due to closed pylorus and the upper end not so tight as pylorus may allow return of acidified (to some extent) in the esophagus which causes inflammation or swelling in it called esophagitis, manifesting as heartburn. Stop the load of proton pump inhibitor drugs like Pantaprazole or its likes and eat simple normal food. It will get hydrolyzed properly and acted upon by pepsin to pass rapidly through stomach saving you from this mess of GERD.

Some times sudden excess of fiber intake can result in to gas which in turn can lead to low grade pain in abdomen. Chew your food properly and eat slowly. Drink more water. Some times infection in the abdomen also presents similarly. You may benefit from antacids and antibiotic/anti amoebic drugs.

Hello acidity is curable with homeopathy. Acidity refers to a burning pain in the upper abdominal and chest area. This condition is medically called as heartburn. It is not uncommon for people to have heartburn episodes but if these attacks occur very frequently they indicate a disorder called as gerd (gastro esophageal reflux disease). This is also called as acid reflux disease. Although many people are able to manage heartburn with lifestyle changes but for those who do not respond and frequently suffer from it, homeopathic medicines can be of great help in curing this disease. Homeopathy can be of great help for those who do not show much improvement even after lifestyle modifications. Homeopathic medicines? iris, arsenic album and robinia are the leading drugs in treating symptoms of reflux. Nux vomica is very effective for those who frequently eat foods that are known to trigger heartburn. It is also used when alcohol is a trigger factor. Natrum phos is another important medicine which is often used when symptoms of heartburn are accompanied by sour belching and even sour vomiting. These medicines are apt in treating acute episodes of the heartburn; but for treating gerd permanently, constitutional treatment is required. This kind of treatment is a holistic approach and the prescription is based at the detailed physical and mental analysis of the patient. Lifestyle changes that can help in reducing the symptoms of reflux are losing weight (if one is overweight), avoiding trigger foods, stop smoking, eating small frequent meals, and avoiding lying down for at least three hours after the meal. Elevating the head of the bed either by adding a wooden block underneath the bed post can be of help. By the time you can start with nux vomica 30 power 3-3 pills 3 times a day on empty stomach continue for 1 month & revert back with changes thanks.

Dear user. You have borderline high psa along with borderline free to total ratio. I understand that you are religiously following psa because of your family history. I would suggest that you see a urologist so that the investigations can be properly understood along with your clinical evaluation. Please do not hesitate to get a prostate biopsy if need be. Early detected prostate cancer have excellent prognosis. Thanks.

Hello I am 52 years old had a stone in my gall bladder. Is there any medicine to relive this problem.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Delhi
Yes, it can be removed if its silent does not mean it not causes any problem. It can be cured but not only with homeopathic medicines, you need to take medicines that can help in removing them naturally such as our medicines combination of herbal and homeo that will help in removing stones via motion passage. Gall bladder gets diseased due to an unhealthy diet and lifestyle. This leads to an imbalance of the acid-alkali balance in the body which causes the cholesterol to precipitate in the gall bladder leading to stone formation. Over time, these may get infected and lead to an acute inflammation, pain, fever etc. A stone may move ahead into a narrow passage or the duct and get stuck leading to severe agony. The safest and way that should be used to remove gall stones is removing it naturally, not just remove gall stones from gall bladder but also remove the cause of gall stones.
