For the past 15 days I am experiencing a stomach problem, I feel that my stomach is full and I am not feeling hungry at all even I skip my lunch. While skipping my lunch I feel that I m energy less but I am not getting hungry, Dr. Kindly help me on this issue

MD - Pathology
General Physician, Amritsar
Skipping lunch is causing fall in blood sugar levels and hence low energy. Take tablet pantop empty stomach in morning. Take small frequent meals. Take fresh seasonal fruits and salads in small quantities at short intervals. Get liver and kidney function tests done to rule out any illness.

I am 5'3" and 116 pounds. When I eat I seem to get full very fast. It doesn't take much food to make me feel full but I still have the desire to eat. I get bloated almost every single time I eat. I eat a wide variety of foods and I try to eat healthy as much as I can. But why am I feeling so full so fast? And is there anything I can do to prevent or ease the bloatedness?

Lybrate-user, my suggestion is if you do some yogasanas pertaining to abdomen like pawan muktasana, mandukasana and abdominal exercises plus regular brisk walking for over 1 hour a day, this problem can be overcome. If need be you may take some digestive enzymes. Thanks.

Ms. I have gone through your whole problem. It is some times difficult to eradicate worm infestation when you have worm in one family the whole family is to be given anti worm treat. I suggest you to keep good hygiene don't wear cloths till your skin is completely dry after bath apply some moisturiser or even coconut oil to prevent itching. If needed then use your clobestrol ointment. Improve your eating habits take lot of green veg, fruits lot of water and avoid fast food. I think you will improve.

Liver Cirrhosis and Homeopathy

BHMS, Diploma in Diet and Nutrition
Homeopath, Lucknow

Liver cirrhosis and Homeopathy

The largest gland of the human body is liver. Cirrhosis is a chronic liver disease which features abnormality in structure and functioning of the liver.

Cirrhosis normally means damage to liver cells. These damaged cells are then replaced by scar tissues which restricts the organ to work normally as it ought to. The replacement of normal liver cells with scar tissues is a long and slow process.

 

cGcYT8o

 

The continuous inflammation of the liver cells due to certain conditions wears out them and the regeneration process works with fibrosis and scar tissue formation. If not treated and checked it may lead to liver failure.

Cirrhosis affects liver very badly and disrupts the normal functioning of the liver some of which are of great importance to the human body and all conditions which can damage the cells of the liver can easily cause cirrhosis.

Cirrhosis of liver means the circulation of blood within the liver is not in a normal condition and hence affecting liver metabolism and elimination of various end products of liver. Liver treats and breaks down many substances which include alcohol, drugs and red blood cells. With the formation of cirrhosis liver does not work properly which means accumulation of various harmful substances in liver and hence damaging liver more and more.

Liver cirrhosis is caused due to many factors like viral infections including hepatitis, Alcohol, Cystic fibrosis, Wilson’s disease, Primary biliary cirrhosis, Drugs and toxins, Schistosomiasis (snails) and many more.

These conditions gradually lead to the wear and tear of liver thus affecting its normal routine and mostly causing cirrhosis.

 

Symptoms:

The symptoms of this disease are not easily recognizable at early stages but gradually symptoms can be seen like appetite loss, nausea, weight loss, jaundice, skin itching, swelling in abdomen and ankles, easy bruising, palms turn warm and reddish, asterexis, spider naevi and some more. When cited the patient should be rushed to the doctor and treatment should be started thereafter.

 

Homeopathy:

Homeopathy has proven its point in treating liver conditions of all types. Homeopathy not just treats the symptoms of cirrhosis but also treats its underlying causes like genetic tendency, viral infection, metabolic changes, alcoholic bad effects etc. and helps to treats cirrhosis on the whole. Homeopathy helps in controlling further damage to the liver cells. Homeopathy cannot help in curing scarred tissues as it is impossible to regenerate those affected tissues.

Homeopathy helps in increasing a person’s immune response and hence reduces the virus load and gradually improving the overall health of liver.if homeopathic medication is given to the patient at early stages it helps in preventing the disease in going any further and preventing further complications like liver failure or cancer from occurring. These are the associated disease of cirrhosis if not treated properly.

Homeopathy is hence very helpful in treating the disease efficiently and prevents the disease from progressing and if administered in early stages homeopathic medication helps in restoring most of the normal liver functions. Thus, homeopathic treatment for this disease is strongly advised and especially in the early stages.

Tobacco can itself cause acidity, lybrate-user. You need to quit tobacco fully. Psychiatrist or you yourself can take the help of nicotine replacement gums, pastules and patches. You can also try with buproprion over the counter tablets. The dose and other psychosocial methods will be attached to it by the manufacturing company. Only varinicline needs psychiatrist's prescription. More the number of attempts to quit, better is your understanding of relapse situations. Work on them one by one. All the best.
