I have a gas stick problem. Which type of food I prefer and tell about medicine for this!
Dear, *Consult to get history to know exact cause of your gastric and prescribe you better. *Eat more fresh organic fruits and vegetables which are rich in antioxidants. They support the body to resist and heal diseases and infection. They are also high in fiber and help in recovering from stomach ulcers and also prevent the occurrence of one. *Rice is the only grain that does not induce gas production. But if you are experiencing bloating and gas pain, its better to replace your grains with brown rice, basmati rice or wild rice. *Avoid eating before going to bed. Eating before bed time can cause secretion of gastric acid during the night. If too many problems occur due to acidity during the night, its best to elevate the head of your bed 6 to 8 inches. *Don’t smoke a cigarette after meals. If you are a alcoholic stop drinking beer. Even if you take other beverages, don’t take with soda.

It's not fair to interfere in treatment given by another doctor but as a general rule rice and daal is not complete food. You do need to take some good fats like a spoon of ghee or butter and a katori of assorted nuts everyday plus lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits plus eating according to constitution. Take more proteins like milk and curds. All of these are digestible.

Sir I am suffering from a problem of mouth ulcers from a regular interval of time what should I do.
If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.

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

Avoid straining. Eat plenty of fibers along with non veg you take. Constipation increases straining forces which cause bleeding. Fibers in diet like spinach and other leafy vegetables, carrots, cucumber, fruits like oranges and sweet lemon make the stools softer and less need for apllying force while passing motion. Local ointments are used if fissure is present and causes pain.

From last night I have liver pain. What should I do now? Is this caused for my acidity?
Hello. How do you know it was liver pain? Many causes are responsible for pain in abdomen, need to rule out. Acidity occurs when there is excess secretion of acids in the gastric glands of the stomach. When the secretion is more than usual, we feel, what is commonly known as heartburn, which is normally triggered off by consumption of spicy foods. 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. - Coconut water is known to soothe the system if you suffer from acidity. - Drink a glass of cold milk - everyday. - Have your last meal at least two to three hours before going to bed. - 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. - Jaggery, lemon, banana, almonds and yogurt are all known to give you instant relief from acidity. - Excessive smoking and drinking will increase acidity, so cut down. - Try chewing gum. The saliva generated helps move food through the esophagus, easing symptoms of heartburn. - Eat Ginger as it aids in digestion. - A simple preparation of lemon water with sugar can be sipped on an hour before lunch to reduce uneasiness. - Have vegetables like drumsticks, beans, pumpkin, cabbage, carrot and spring onions. Medication: Take Biochemic medicine - Natrum Phos. 6x/ thrice daily ½ an hour after meals.

How to relieve acidity in home remedy. Im suffering from 4 yeas. And did not get a solution.
If you are suffering from acidity for 4 years with no relief then I believe you have not taken right medications. If inspite of medications you are having this problem then you need to undergo upper gi endoscopy. Take otc drug ranitidine 150 mg twice daily for 5 days and see for effect. Maintain strict routine of meals. Avoid oily/ spicy/ outside cooked food.

I'm 28 year old. My bilirubin is always higher than normal values. Doctor telling Gilbert syndrome. What it is.
Gilbert’s syndrome is a common and harmless condition, where high levels of a substance called bilirubin build up in the blood. Bilirubin is a yellow pigment found naturally in the blood, which forms when red blood cells are broken down. Symptoms of Gilbert's syndrome Most people with Gilbert's syndrome will experience occasional and short-lived episodes of jaundice. This is when the skin and whites of the eyes turn slightly yellow. Some people also report other problems during episodes of jaundice, including: abdominal (tummy) pain feeling very tired (fatigue) loss of appetite feeling sick dizziness irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) – a common condition that causes stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation problems concentrating and thinking clearly (brain fog) a general sense of feeling unwell However, these problems are not thought to be directly related to increased bilirubin levels, and could mean you have another condition other than Gilbert’s syndrome. Around one in three people with Gilbert’s syndrome experience no noticeable symptoms, and you may not realise you have it until tests for an unrelated condition are carried out.
