Hyper acidity
What is hyperacidity?
It is an uncomfortable burning sensation that often times creeps up the throat, and is a symptom more so than a disease. It is caused by acid reflux.

•Take 3-6 gm of liquorice (mulethi) root powder with warm milk.
•Drink cold milk without any additives. Make it more effective add one teaspoonful of ghee to it.
•Eat overripe bananas during an attack of acidity. They have higher amounts of potassium making it even more effective.
•Boil one cup of water and to it add one tsp of Fennel (souf). Cover and leave overnight. Strain the water in the morning, add 1 tsp of honey (shahad).Taken this prepration 3 times a day.
•Chew Cumin (jeera) or boil it in water. Drink the water when it has cooled down.
•Chop some mint leaves, add them to a pot of boiling water and drink this water after cooling it.
•To relieve acidity crush two pods of cardamom (with or without the skin), boil the powder in water and drink the cooled juice for instant relief.
•Crush ginger, mix it with a small piece of jaggery (gud) and keeping sucking on it allowing the juice to slowly reach the stomach.

My father is 61 years old. In tests stones are identified in gal bladder. What is the effect of them. Is there any remedy or operations required? Any food restrictions? To get rid of them. Kindly reply.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, take Berberis vulgaris Q, 15 drops with water thrice daily. Take Cholesterinum 3X , 2 tabs twice daily. Home remedies :- 1. The acidic nature of apple cider vinegar stops the liver from making cholesterol that is responsible for forming the most common type of gallstones. It also plays a key role in dissolving gallstones and alleviating pain. Mix one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of apple juice. Drink it whenever you have a gallstone attack. This will significantly ease the pain within 15 minutes. you can add two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and one teaspoon of lemon juice to a glass of warm water. Drink it on an empty stomach in the morning. Doing this regularly for weeks can dissolve gallstones and prevent pain. 2. Pears can also provide relief from gallstone pain and other symptoms. The compound pectin present in pears helps soften cholesterol-filled gallstones, which in turn get flushed out of your body easily. Mix half a glass of pear juice with half a glass of hot water. Mix in two tablespoons of honey. Drink this juice three times a day for two weeks. peel and de-seed some pears. Cut the pears in small pieces and cook them in water for about 20 minutes. Eat a bowl of the warm cooked pears twice daily for two weeks. All of the following are healthy foods for your gallbladder, as well as the rest of your body:- Fresh fruits and vegetables Whole grains (whole-wheat bread, brown rice, oats, bran cereal) Lean meat, poultry, and fish Low-fat dairy products.

What are the common causes of diarrhea among children? and sign and symptoms of sever dehydration.

MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
What causes diarrhea Diarrhea may be caused by a temporary problem, like an infection; or a chronic problem, like an intestinal disease. A few of the more common causes of diarrhea are: Bacterial infections. Several types of bacteria, consumed through contaminated food or water, can cause diarrhea. Common culprits include Campylobacter, Salmonella, Shigella, and Escherichia coli. Viral infections. Many viruses cause diarrhea, including rotavirus, Norwalk virus, cytomegalovirus, herpes simplex virus, and viral hepatitis. Food intolerances. Some people are unable to digest some component of food, such as lactose, the sugar found in milk. Parasites. Parasites can enter the body through food or water and settle in the digestive system. Parasites that cause diarrhea include Giardia lamblia, Entamoeba histolytica, and Cryptosporidium. Reaction to medicines, such as antibiotics, blood pressure medications, and antacids containing magnesium. Intestinal diseases, like inflammatory bowel disease or celiac disease. Functional bowel disorders, such as irritable bowel syndrome, in which the intestines do not work normally. Here are some signs of dehydration to watch out for: Sleepiness. Irritability. Thirst. Less elasticity in the skin. Eyes and fontanel (or soft spot on head) appear sunken. Decrease or absence of tears. Dry mouth. Decrease number of wet diapers.

My stomach is paining with gas what to do?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
My stomach is paining with gas what to do?
if you have occasional acidity, lifestyle changes can help: lose excess weight, eat smaller meals, and avoid foods that seem to trigger heartburn such as fried or fatty foods, chocolate, and peppermint. Avoiding alcohol and nicotine may help, too. If necessary, occasional acid reflux can be treated with over-the-counter medication. If you have frequent acidity and burning pain in stomach due to acidity then you may have h. Pylori infection for which I can prescribe a 14 day treatment plan which will eliminate it. Untreated infection causes ulcer in stomach and finally leads to cancer. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Homeopathic treatment for ulcerative colitis

Homeopathic treatment can relieve the bleeding and diarrhea and can shorten flare-up`s duration. It can also bring about a long-term remission and prevent new attacks. Ulcerative colitis may be an autoimmune disease and a virus or bacterium may trigger the disease. Homeopathic treatment reinforces the immune system and helps the body`s defense against infection. Homeopathy is compatible with conventional treatment and you can take homeopathic medicines when you are on other medications too. Homeopathic therapy is natural and has no side effects.
Stress is one of the triggers that can set off a flare-up. Homeopathic medicines are very effective in ulcerative colitis because they balance the immune system, treat the intestinal symptoms and also relieve stress.

Symptoms of gallstone disease
Asymptomatic Gallstones:
Most do not develop symptoms even after follow up periods as long as 20 years. Approximately 20% of patients develop symptoms by 15 years. Asymptomatic gallstone disease does not need surgery but there are important exceptions tabulated below.
1.High risk for gallbladder cancer
North Indian women with gallstones
Gallstones larger than 3 cm in diameter
Porcelain gallbladder (calcification in the wall)
Gallbladder polyps larger than 12 mm
Note:- The role of prophylactic cholecystectomy in young patients from various parts of India has been emphasized in many recent papers.
2.Diabetes
Infection in the gallbladder in patients with gallstones can be life threatening
3.Lifestyle
Working for prolonged periods in remote parts of the world with poor medical facilities
Symptomatic Gallstone Disease:
Although dyspepsia (upper abdominal fullness, flatulence or gas formation, heart burn, hyperacidity) are not considered typical symptoms of gallstones, in a study from AIIMS new Delhi of the 1,680 consecutive dyspeptic patients, 500 (29.8%) had gallstones. The common presentation of patients with gallstones is:-
Biliary pain: The typical first symptom is frequently characterized as pain in the right upper abdomen after a meal, more so after fatty foods.
Complications of gallstone disease
a. Acute Cholecystitis: Often patients will have history of biliary pain which lasts for > 3 hours, associated with fever and right upper quadrant tenderness (Murphy?s sign).
b. Chronic Chlolecystitis: Patients will have episodic epigastric or right upper abdominal pain lasting for more than 30 minutes
c. Choledocholithiasis: When a stone from the gallbladder slips into the common bile duct it can lead to biliary colic, obstructive jaundice followed by acute cholangitis or pancreatitis.
d. Acute Cholangitis: is a medical emergency. Patients may present with right upper quadrant abdominal pain, fever and jaundice. (Charcot?s triad)
e. Pancreatitis: A most dreaded and life threatening complication of gallstones presents with very severe, persistent central upper abdominal pain, retching and prostration.

It may be due to pelvic infection and pelvic pathology . first advice her to keep clean and dry vaginal portion. Take plenty of fluid. Pain continue for few days in starting after marriage because of hormones changes. So, don't worry about it. If she feel itching and foul smelling or white discharge then advice her to apply antifungal ointment.q
