Hello first of all you weight is high it should be between 58 to 65 kgs. Secondaly your question. Ayurveda tell that you should drink water after 1 to 2 hours after food. Dal is also fluid which we take. Best think is to eat at right thine and regularly at the same time. From childhood are food is given timely and body follows the pattern. Thanks.

Dear sir,
I have acidity problem. Can you please suggest me some food types to overcome tis problem.
Hello, dietary modifications are required to tackle acidity issues. Avoid excess tea/coffee, spicy and oily foods and carbonated beverages. Smoking and alcohol intake worsen peptic ulcer disease. Maintain a time gap of 1-2 hours between dinner and sleep. Take plenty of fluids. Regards.

27 male. Dark Oily skin at face. Sensitive skin. My facial skin is 3/4 shades darker than my body. Most probably it happened due to long exposure to sun. Nose top is again noticeably fairer like body. Nose bridges has dark bands. A doctor told me to go for TCA peeling. Before indulging myself in acid, I want to know about any home remedies, which face wash n night cream I should use. And if there is any other oral or over the counter drugs for treating this.

Just try these simple remedies for atleast a month before considering peels - use tea tree face wash and toner twice daily. Use aha glow face wash daily use sunscreen with spf 30 daily. Use natural face pack of multani mitti and lemon 2 times a week. You can also use apple cider vinegar with mother for 5 mins after washing your face and splash it clean with water. Most important is diet- do not eat junk, eat more vegetables and fruits especially with vitamin c.

Your symptom of bloating and constipation may be sign of digestive disorder if your condition has lasted six months. You may have an allergy to gluten, a protein in wheat, rye, barley flours, that causes your symptoms. There are many gluten-free foods you can eat to test whether you still have bloating. A digestive disorder that affects many, young people, young girls, mostly, is irritable bowel syndrome (ibs). Celiac disease may be caused by ingesting gluten in baked foods. Celiac disease can be diagnosed with a blood test that shows antibodies. Also, lactose-intolerance (allergic to milk proteins) can present similar symptoms as gluten. Try substituting lactose-free dairy foods for a week to notice whether your bloating and constipation change. Here is a list of digestive disorders you can read about on a federal-government website: ibs, celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease (ibd), crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, lactose-intolerance and chronic constipation.

Bottle gourd juice(Dudhi juice)

The underrated vegetable is know for its hefty nutritional values. It is a known diuretic (which helps to remove excess water and toxins) from the system and also help in gastroinstestinal problems like flatulence(gas),indigestion and acidity. It surely makes a healing punch.

Hello, first of all you should know what is backache and by which factors it caused and aggravated. The usual cause of low back pain is the sedentary lifestyle that we lead these days. There is hardly any movement. walking, running and cycling like activities are also not a part of our daily routine. To add to it, our diet consists more and more of junk food. Fresh fruits, vegetables and high fibre foods are consumed less and less. These daily practices lead to obesity. The increased body weight puts lot of pressure on the spine which has to bear all the extra unwanted weight. The back muscles which are already weak due to lack of exercise and wrong posture are unable to cope with this increased load. This causes pain in the back muscles. Management for Back Pain:-Along with medicines for relieving pain, one needs to identify the cause and correct it. This may require some medicines or some correction in your posture or reducing weight or improving your lifestyle. At the same time, there is a need to work on the local muscle strengthening. Back muscles need to be strengthened so that they can bear the weight of the upper body. For this exercises of the back muscles are very helpful. Regular walking is also very helpful as it is a wholesome exercise of the body, improves blood circulation and helps lose weight. Most importantly if you are overweight then losing weight is an important part of the whole treatment plan .Long term use of painkillers for low back pain is harmful Treatment for back pain:- Homeopathic medicines are very helpful. They not only treat the acute stages but are also used for the treatment of chronic back pain.Selection of the exact remedy depends upon the individual symptoms of the person.So share the complete symptom picture for the proper treament. In the mean time take Arnica 200, 3 drops in the morning and Rhus tox. 200, 3 drops at night for 7 days.Take care.
