C) instill 3-4 drops of CHANDANADI TAILA in each nostril at the time of sleeping Do all these things for 15 days. It gives you good result. THANKS.

Dear lybrate user, your father needs to take homoeopathic carbo veg 200, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach. He can also try homoeopathic liver tonic liv-t (sbl company). He should take 20 ml of the aforesaid liver tonic, thrice daily, after meals. He should try to drink as much water as he can drink daily as well as he should try to get an uninterrupted sleep of minimum 8 hours.

My mother has gall bladder stone from last ten years. Now it hurts her a lot. She refused to get operated for this. Any medicine that can help?

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy

Operation is the safest treatment. But if your mother not ready for it, homeopathic medicines can help. Give her less oily food. She should eat light food and drink plenty of water. Eat lot of fruits and vegetables.

About acid reflux I am facing this problem Please give some basic Medical suggestions.

MBBS, Diploma in Cardiac Emergencies in General Practice
General Physician,
About acid reflux I am facing this problem Please give some basic Medical suggestions.
Basic suggestions for reflux: Favour low-fat, high protein foods. For instance, choose a chicken instead of pasta with a rich, creamy sauce. Eat more often, as long as you cut back on your portions. Smaller meals are easier on your stomach. Stop eating before you get too full. It also helps to slow down, since you may not feel full until 15-20 minutes after you start to eat. Notice -- and avoid -- foods or drinks that seem to bring on or worsen your heartburn. These may include: Coffee or tea. Anything that’s fizzy or has caffeine in it Alcohol Citrus fruits, such as oranges and lemons Tomatoes and products that contain tomatoes, such as tomato sauce and salsa Chocolate Mint or peppermint Fatty or spicy foods, such as chili or curry Onions and garlic Put blocks under the legs at the head of your bed to raise it at least 4 to 6 inches. This helps keep your stomach's contents down. Don’t just pile on more pillows. It doesn’t work, because this position may put more pressure on your belly. Stop eating at least 2 or 3 hours before lying down. If you nap, curl up in a chair instead of in bed. Sleeping upright can help. Don’t wear tight clothes or tight belts. If you smoke, stop.
