Sir mujhe hamesa kabaj he rhata hai or mouth mai challe bhi rhate hai. To mai kya karu?
Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need c. Becosules 5 cap, for five days in the morning after meals & hexigel ointment on the area of ulcer until then. You may consult me in person too. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.

Best Homeopathic Remedies for Gastroenteritis Treatment

Gastroenteritis, also commonly referred to as infectious diarrhoea, is a gastric disorder. The gastrointestinal tract, which comprises of the small intestine and stomach gets inflamed. Gastroenteritis is indicated by the symptoms such as diarrhea, acute vomiting and pain in the abdomen. Fever, exhaustion and dehydration are also observed. This disease usually lasts not more than two weeks. It is also called the stomach flu. Infections caused by virus, bacteria, parasites or fungi may lead to gastroenteritis. Viruses account for this disease the most. This disease is transmitted mainly from food items and contaminated water. Important electrolytes like sodium and potassium are lost from our body.

The most common remedy in case of gastroenteritis is having ORS. However, homeopathy is also considered very effective if you have got infectious diarrhoea. Homeopathic medicines are considered very safe and result yielding in case of gastroenteritis. Homeopathy is a form of medicine, which is always given preference by all experts, as it is natural with no side effects. After conducting various surveys, it has been proven that homeopathic treatment is far more effective than other forms of medication for gastroenteritis.

Here is a list of the best homeopathic remedies for the treatment of gastroenteritis. There are many categories of homeopathic medicines for diarrhoea each with their own significance.

  1. Aconite: This must be used for diarrhea caused in the season when the days are hot, and the nights are comparatively cold. The symptoms appear in the middle of the night. Heavy diarrhoea along with high-intensity  fever occurs and anxiety.
  2. Aloe: This remedy should be used in case of a continuing urge for stool because of weakness of the anal sphincter. Mucus is accompanied along with pain in the rectum area. In case of adults, this diarrhoea is also characterized by blue hemorrhoids.
  3. Arsenicum album: This medicine is used in case of food poisoning. The affected person feels cold, tired and panicky. Vomiting and diarrhoea take place after midnight. Burning pain in the abdomen is also observed.
  4. Cinchona: Used in case of diarrhoea with the presence of excessive exhaustion and abdomen gas. The abdomen gets bloated up. 
  5. Ipeca: When there is nausea and non stop vomiting or your mouth gets filled with saliva, Ipeca can be used. Thirst is lost, and the color of the stool may be green or bloody.
  6. Podophyllum: This medicine is usually used by tourists in case of diarrhoea.  Abdominal vibration and frequent stools are indicated. The stool is characterized by an unpleasant smell.

Homeopathy is a very effective category of medication when it comes to gastroenteritis, however, still it is advisable to get regular full body check up done.

I am suffering from e coli for many years I am using Fosirol powder which help me partly can I take it every month?

LCPS, BAM&S
General Physician, Pune
I presume you are suffering from urinary track infection by ecoli. Fosirol is not safe for seniors above 60. Secondly repeat dose is not advisable. There are better drugs available. But repeated infection suggest some obstruction in the path of urine by stone or growth. I suggest you see a urologist and undergo full investigations to explore cause of your repeated infections. Please do not take any medication without expert supervision.

I am 56 years old. I am suffering from ulcerative colitis since 15 years.what can i do?

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Refrain from having anti-inflammatory pain medications, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen. Causes are more or less idiopathic, ie reasons for this is unknown yet! one possible cause is an immune system malfunction. When your immune system tries to fight off an invading virus or bacterium, an abnormal immune response causes the immune system to attack the cells in the digestive tract, for diet: avoid foods that you know cause you trouble. You can have lots of probiotics and curd. Consult privately for detailed treatment in biochemic.

Hi. I have lower abdomen pain. And the urologist doctor has suggested that the pain can be neurogenic since my tests report is normal. So he told me to take pregabalin for 2 weeks twice a day, and I already take escitalopram due to Fibromyalgia. And I read on net, they interact with each other. So can I take pregabalin with escitalopram or not? And I take escitalopram 10 mg in morning, so can I take pregabalin at night? And what do you think is the pain due to?
