Please follow these tips apart from taking medicines to avoid recurrence: - Do not keep your stomach empty for long durations, - Eat in small quantities frequently. - Avoid hot, spicy and oil fried food - Drink plenty of water in between your intake. - Keep away from mental stress and tensions, - Perform physical exercises daily and meditation helps to relieve mental stress and tensions. - Consume lot of fibre like raw vegetables, oats, fruits, sprouts, etc - Avoid excess intake of coffee or tea , intake of medicines on empty stomach. - Be careful about the food while eating outside. - Carry a small pack of biscuit or some fruits along with you for emergency. - Whenever you suffer from acidity, take the medications prescribed by the doctor for 2-3 weeks continuously until the wounds in the stomach gets healed completely. - Sleep at least for 8 hours a day. - Restrict the usage of pain killers and antibiotics frequently.

Dear, It appears that you have anal fissure and it is due to constipation which is not a disease but life style problem. Treat constipation: increase fluid intake, take high fiber and high residue diei, take emolient laxative like creamaffin plus 1 tsf at night along with isabgol powder 3-4 tsf in 300 ml of water at night, increase physical activity in form of regular walking, games or exercises. Apply zincal ointment in side anus before passing stools and also avoid taking painkillers. If brning is severe then take sitz' bath: sitting in tub full of warm water for 15-20 minutes

Mr. Lybrate-user, your down with a fissure in ano, caused by constipation, passing hard stools. I would advise you to increase the amount of green leafy vegetables, fruits like bananas, plenty of liquids esp in summer. You can take laxatives like liq cremaffin 10ml at nite, apply lignocaine oint locally 3 times aday, sit in a tub of warm water for 15min, 3 times in a day for a week. If you have too much of pain take tab dolo 650, if it does not improve consult a surgeon.

Homoeopathic treatment is safe and effective way to provide permanent cure in fatty liver grade 2 disease. If you're willing to take a homoeopathic treatment just let me know through private conversation in Lybrate. Fatty Liver Grade 2 Unhealthy lifestyle habits along with poor health maintenance usually give rise to various health problems.  In such a situation it is normally the gastrointestinal tract that gets affected initially, with the liver taking a major brunt of it all.  Fatty liver disease has progressed to be the most common ailment of the liver suffered by most at the present time. Causes – In some, genetics may be the causative factor for this disease condition.  But most often it is either due to abnormal conditions of the body systems like diabetes, high blood cholesterol or triglyceride levels, or excess body weight.  Over use of certain medications are also known to interfere with the proper functions of the liver and cause fatty liver disease to set in.  Heavy alcohol drinking is also linked to this liver condition. Treatment – Effective treatment depends on identifying the exact cause behind this disease development.  Now, fatty liver is classified into two – alcoholic and non-alcoholic type.  Hence, if an individual is diagnosed with the alcoholic type, then refraining from drinking alcohol, even in moderate amounts, will help in reversing this liver disease. For the non-alcoholic fatty liver type sufferers though the treatment involves a change in diet and lifestyle habits. Foods to Be Avoided – Refined carbohydrates like white rice, white bread, noodles, and pasta to be removed from the person’s diet. Processed junk foods contain excess greasy fats and thus needs to be removed.  Breakfast cereals are also processed highly and should be avoided.  Likewise, baked goods like cakes, cookies, scones, puff pastry, etc. Require excess fats for baking purposes and needs to be eliminated by the sufferer. Deep fried sweet and savories also to be avoided by the person.  Meat, especially red meats like lamb, pork and beef, and meat products that contain animal fats needs to be avoided. Dairy rich products like cheese, butter, margarine, mayonnaise, ice-creams and fruit yogurt also to be avoided. Artificial sweeteners to be avoided for breakdown of these additives will exert the liver. Foods to Promote Healthy Liver – Whole grains like brown rice, whole wheat, rye, and oats to be made part of the person’s regular diet.  Organic fruits and vegetables that are rich in fiber will benefit a fatty liver sufferer. If meat cannot be avoided, the person will need to switch to fat-trimmed meats and chicken.  Seafood like prawn, mackerel, salmon, sardine, tuna, etc. Which are rich in essential fatty acids may also be consumed by the sufferer. For regular cooking, oils that contain omega-3 fatty acids are recommended for the sufferer.  The best choice would be cold-pressed olive oil. Exercise – Reduction ofugh abdominal fat with exercise is recommended for fatty liver sufferers.  A regular exercise routine will also keep overall body weight at desired levels, which is essential to keep all disease conditions at bay.

How to take Homoeopathic medicines 1.Homoeopathic mediciness are always to be taken empty stomach,means when there is nothing in your stomach.It doesnt meanss that these medicines r to be taken early morning.It means that homoeopathic medicines are to be taken minimum 15 minutess before or 15 minutes after eating or drinking anything except plain water.and maximum time no limit. 2.Therefore distance between two homoeopathic medicines will also be minimum 15 minutes nd maximum no limit. 3.All the homoeopathic medicines can be taken empty stomach ( Morning dose) if you so like. 4.Difference from all allopathic medicine should be minimum of 1hour before or after as homoeopathic medicines r very light but deep acting nd allopathic medicines in materialistic doses being strong,mimimise the effect of homoeopathic medicines if taken in a difference of less than one hour
