Hello, leg pain and indigestion or gas problem have no connection. However leg pain can be due to dehydration or vitamin d /e deficiency. Replenish your diet with fresh fruits & green leafy veggies. Also get tour vit d levels checked and review. For gastric issues, avoid spicy fried food and too much suagr. Eat small meals at intervals of 2-3hours. Eat more salad & curd. Get back if symptoms persists.

3 Ayurvedic Remedies For Gastritis!

3 Ayurvedic Remedies For Gastritis!

Your stomach is lined with a mucosal membrane known as the mucosa and due to a variety of factors, it may become inflamed. This inflammation may cause a lot of problems and complications which are grouped under gastritis.
Symptoms of gastritis

  1. Upper abdominal pain
  2. Hiccups
  3. Diarrhea
  4. Nausea
  5. Heartburn
  6. Constipation
  7. Reduction of appetite
  8. Blood in the stool amongst the others

Gastritis can be quite debilitating and limiting for the people affected by it.

The Ayurveda approach
Ayurveda is a holistic form of medicine which takes into account many factors rather than just the physical disposition and symptoms that strives to cure the patients of the illness in a well-rounded manner. To this effect, Ayurveda helps you treat this problem with multiple angles of attack such as herbal medications and special cleansing therapies among many others. Let’s take a look at some of the methods usually employed in various combinations among the patients.

  1. Changes in diet: Consuming any diet which has a lot of spicy and rich foods over prolonged periods may result in gastritis and other problems. If you already have gastritis, then certain other types of food also need to be excluded such as tea, coffee, sour foods, chilies and buffalo milk among others. These food groups are excluded as they may increase the acidity of the stomach which may cause an escalation of the problems. Some of the foods that may help with gastritis are grapes, pumpkins, bitter gourd, pomegranate, melons and cucumber, etc.
  2. Natural remedies: Some natural remedies that can be very effective in dealing with the symptoms of gastritis are mentioned below
    • Ajwain and rock salt have been an age old remedy in treating multiple gastrointestinal disorders and can be effective in this case as well.
    • Lemon juice is also very effective in treating symptoms or gastritis and also reducing inflammation.
    • Take amla, ginger, and licorice either in a raw form or as a dried option or mixed with other things such as milk or honey. These help in regulating and reducing the acidity within the stomach.
  3. Ayurvedic medications: There are many specialized Ayurvedic medications which can be used to treat gastritis such as:
    • Amalaki choorna
    • Avipattikara choorna
    • Sootashekhara rasa
    • Sukumara Ghrita
    • Dhatri Lauha

However, you should consult a specialist Ayurveda doctor as they can prescribe the correct medications for you after studying your specific symptoms.

This is not a fact. Different schools of therapies have different thoughts. Most of the Bengali preparations uses fish and milk/curd. There is no harm at all.

I've been experiencing pelvic pain for nearly 3 months now. It started as what I thought was a standard UTI and was treated for such. The pain persisted so I was then treated for a bacterial infection. That was before the holidays.

MBBS
General Physician,
you should get the urine cultured and also antibiotics sensitivity test also so that theburinary tract infection can be treated properly.

I go to bathroom to empty my bowels every time I eat something or when I have tea or coffee. I feel discomfort in my stomach after eating and then I go to bathroom to empty my bowels. I find difficult to eat home made foods but I greatly enjoyed junk foods, As I eat vegetables like brinjal and capsicum i. I feel irritation in stomach. I do not like this feeling because it arises every time I had breakfast, lunch or dinner. And I even empty my bowels in the morning but I was having the habit of holding stool in childhood, so is this due to stool holding? What are the disadvantages of holding stool?

Dear friend, holding stool causes many problems. Loss of appetite, piles etc are few of them. You have to go many times because there may be swelling in the intestine or any infection. Try to regulate your routine. Take healthy food and avoid junk food as possible. You may need some medicine also. If not cared now it may disturb your normal life. Tell me to guide further.

Ayurvedic Treatment For Hyperacidity!

B.A.M.S, Diploma in Nutrition and Health Education (DNHE, PG Diploma in Hospital Managment
Ayurveda, Delhi
Ayurvedic Treatment For Hyperacidity!

Acidity gives you tremendous discomfort. The stomach condition wherein acid levels of the gastric juices are much more than normal is known as hyperacidity. It causes uneasiness alongside symptoms like loss of appetite, heartburn, unexpected stomach pain, etc. According to Ayurveda, the main cause of this condition is the worsening of the Pitta Dosha (the fire element) in your body.

The reasons that worsen this dosha are:

- Having foods that don't match your constitution or which aren't supposed to be had like milk and salt or milk and fish
- Extremely spicy and sour beverages and foods
- White flour products
- Products made from white sugar
- Smoking
- Excessive intake of coffee and tea
- Alcohol
- Having food even though you may be suffering from indigestion
- Controlling the urge to urinate or pass stool
- Prolonged exposure to heat and the sun

What happens to your digestive power?

The exacerbated Pitta worsens your digestive fire, causing your food to be not properly digested as well as influence the production of ama (toxins). When ama builds up in your various digestive channels, it brings about the problem of hyperacidity. The treatment focuses on calming down the irritated Pitta Dosha. For this, certain herbs are used to get rid of the toxins that block these channels. This automatically improves your digestive fire, bringing about better digestion.

What changes you're required to make?

To keep this problem at bay, there are certain lifestyle changes that you may have to make such as

- To curb the consumption of acidic foods like garlic, onions, ginger, vinegar, and tomatoes
- Avoid having curd/yogurt at night
- Practice yoga and Pranayam like Bhujangasana, Vajrasana, Shitkari Pranayam and so on
- Avoid fermented as well as processed foods
- Avoid coffee, tea, alcoholic or carbonated beverages. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Ayurveda, Balasore
Hello, the colitis is manifested by abdominal pain associated with cramps, bloating, constipation and diarrhea often alternate, and emission of mucus in the feces. Most people can control these symptoms simply by correcting your eating style, using some medicine in the acute stages and learning to manage stress better psychic. Foods that should not miss in daily food plan are carrots, potatoes, artichokes, cabbage, cucumbers, apples, cranberries, fennel and peppermint oil. Precisely for this precious ability to absorb water, these foods must be accompanied by adequate fluid intake.
