What is the best way to cure acidity? Please tell me an answer which will exclude the use of drug.
Here are some home remedies to cure acidity.  - Skip the aerated drinks as well as the caffeine. Opt for herbal tea instead.  - Have a glass of lukewarm water everyday.  - Include banana, watermelon and cucumber in your daily diet. Watermelon juice is great for curing acidity.  - Nariyal paani is known to soothe the system if you suffer from acidity.  - Drink a glass of milk - everyday.  - Have your last meal at least two to three hours before you hit the sack.  - Keeping long intervals between meals is another cause for acidity. Have small but regular meals.  - Try to avoid pickles, spicy chutneys, vinegar, etc.  - Boil some mint leaves in water and have a glass of this after meals.

I need help to understand what might be the possible cause of frequent diarrhea that my father has. He is 75 years old and has high BP from last 10-15 years. He has a pacemaker implant (in 2011) and 2 stents (in 2013) for his heart related issues. He also has light bronchial asthma from last many years and recently Alzheimers. He is on medication for all the above ailments and is quite stable with active lifestyle. He also does regular yoga morning and evening. He is teetotaller, vegetarian and his diet comprises food with very low oil. The problem is that from last 2 years he gets sudden diarrhea, with high fever and loss of body fluids. We need to admit him to a nearby clinic for glucose and antibiotic drips and he recovers in 2-3 days and gets discharged. Blood tests and stool tests during his stay at the clinics have not revealed anything serious and he gets well with regular antibiotics such as Metronidazole or Ornof. In 2012, this happened once in about 4-5 months. Now the frequency has increased and he gets these loose motions every 2-3 months. The increasing frequency of this symptom is worrying us and we need to know if there is any deeper cause for this. What kind of investigations do we need to do and what kind of treatment will help. thanks in advance.

Do You Know About This Most Effective Home Remedy For Heartburn and Acidity?

Do You Know About This Most Effective Home Remedy For Heartburn and Acidity?
The Most Effective Home Remedy For Heartburn

Heartburn is a burning sensation in the chest area caused by stomach acid backing up into the food pipe – the esophagus. Often, people experience heartburn after consuming some specific food or drinking a particular beverage. Many times Heartburn is mistaken for serious heart trouble and may push panic button in individuals, but it is still a cause for concern and disturbance.
You can get rid of this irritable problem with this simple yet effective home remedy.

Take a spoon-full of plain yellow mustard seeds and swallow it after soaking in 100 ml of water for a few hours. Mustard contains vinegar, which neutralizes the acid in the stomach, due to which the pH of the stomach is lowered. It also prevents the stomach from producing any more acid. This action helps to relieve heartburn completely. However, incase mustard does not suit you, carefully note its effects to continue usage.

Another bonus Tip: Having 15-20 grains of raw rice right in the morning reduces acidity, ruling out the very cause of heartburn.

Can activated charcoal be taken for cleansing of stomach? I have digestion problems due to anxiety, fear and stress.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Can activated charcoal be taken for cleansing of stomach? I have digestion problems due to anxiety, fear and stress.
Cleansing stomach is a misnomer believed by common men and quacks. STRESS CONTROL There are many ways to tame your stress and keep it at bay. Here are tips to tame your stress today, and keep the stress monsters at bay. 1. Perform diaphragmatic or “deep breathing” exercises. 2. Lie face down on the floor and begin breathing deeply and slowly, with your hands resting under your face. Do this for five minutes. 3. Sit in a reclining chair. Put a hand on your abdomen and a hand on your chest. As you breathe, make sure the hand on your abdomen is moving up and down rather than one on your chest. If the hand on your abdomen is moving you are breathing deeply and slowly. 4. Try progressive muscle relaxation or “deep muscle” relaxation. Progressively tense and relax each muscle group in your body. Learn the difference between muscle tension and relaxation. 5. Meditate. Use visualization or guided imagery to help you learn to be one with your thoughts. Sit quietly with your eyes closed, imagining the sights, sounds and smells of your favorite place, such as a beach or mountain retreat. 6. Exercise regularly or take up yoga.

1. Use sour cream. The lactic acid found in sour milk can help treat and remove freckles naturally without causing irritation or dryness on the skin. Do this at least once daily until the freckles go away. 2. Apply fresh papaya juice directly on the freckles using a cotton ball and gently massage the area. After 10 minutes, rinse the skin with cold water. Do this once daily for at least for a few weeks or until you are satisfied with the results.
