I am suffering from acidity. Can you please suggestion to which medicine take for the acidity.

BHMS
Homeopath, Hyderabad
I am suffering from acidity. Can you please suggestion to which medicine take for the acidity.
Acidity can be due to prolonged intake of medication like anti-inflammatory drugs etc. The way you eat and what you eat are some of the important factors spicy, oily and fried foods cause the problem of acidity. People who skip their meals or do not eat at proper time are also prone to acidity. Above all stress is the major cause. So avoid above things. Eat at proper time, reduce spicy pickled food, stop prolong medication, smoking, alcohol etc. Above all due to stress mainly digestive track effects so to reduce stress meditation and breathing exercise will help. Antacids like panataprazole, omiprazole, rantadine can give the temporary relief the best way to reduce stress is with homeopathy. You can use carboveg 30 and lycopodium 200 evening can also give very good relief. But for complete cure you need constitutional homeopathy treatment.

Rajesh kindly update about your bowel habits and lifestyle for better assessment however for now you need to avoid spicy and oily food stuffs and also avoid drinking water on empty stomach as this further accelerates gastric issues.

Peptic Ulcer - 6 Reasons Behind it

MBBS, M.S (Gen Surg), M.Ch ( Surgical Gastro)
Gastroenterologist, Hyderabad
Peptic Ulcer - 6 Reasons Behind it

There may be times when we get completely drained and fatigued and may feel like our insides could jump out because of the pain that we have in our stomachs. We may dismiss the issue as unimportant or due to a stressful day at work, and may think the stomach pain could be because of the extra spicy food we love to have every once in a while. However, a lot of people may tend to ignore this symptom and that is when stomach ache may turn out to be actually because of a peptic ulcer.

Peptic ulcer or stomach ulcer is a common occurrence and happens to a lot of people; however, it must be understood that not treating the problem in time may be troublesome in the long run and increase the recovery time. In order to be able to identify the peptic ulcers and to take the right treatment measures, it may be important for you to understand the problem and know how it is caused, and how it may be treated.

What causes peptic ulcers?
A peptic ulcer is diagnosed as inflammatory sores on the lining of the stomach or the food pipe, which transfers food to the stomach or even in the intestine. There are a number of factors that can cause inflammatory sores in the stomach region. The factors are as follows:

  1. The use of medicines that are meant to be painkillers or anti-inflammatory drugs. The acid levels of the stomach and the food pipe may get disturbed because of these medicines and may give rise to ulcers.
  2. In a lot of cases, the ulcers may also take place because of the presence of a tumour or a gastrinoma in the stomach that imbalance the levels of acid in the stomach.
  3. High alcohol consumption may also lead to the formation of sores on the stomach lining.
  4. Using tobacco or smoking are some other factors that contribute to the acid imbalance in the stomach.
  5. In the case of some serious illnesses, a lot of people may fall prey to peptic ulcers.
  6. Those who may have undergone radiation treatment around the stomach may also experience ulcers.

Though it may be known that excessive pain in the abdominal region may be due to stomach ulcers, it is important to understand that it happens due to bacterial infections, and when there is a bacterial infection in the body, you may have to undergo proper treatment. The treatment for this problem includes the use of medications as suggested by a qualified doctor, surgery in some severe cases, and most importantly lifestyle changes.
