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 and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications.

Blood in my stools. Today I found blood in my stools. It happened in two bowel movements one in the morning and the other in the evening. Generally I never had this problem earlier. Generally I don't feel bowels completely empty after my first visit to bath room, but at the end of the day after one more bowel movement I feel free. I drink water in the morning every day ,and then do cardio on stationary bicycle. But my some times my meal timings are not regular, some times there is a 5-6 hour gap between meals .And 10-11 hour gap between dinner and breakfast. This happens because of my hectic work load of my software job. Is my problem serious? Please help.
