Hernia operation never cures acidity problem. I think you misunderstood. If you are having sever acidity and it is not cured even after taking medications. The probably you require upper GI endoscopy to see if you have stomach ulcer etc. Also stop smoking if you smoke. Avoid spicy food.

- Skip the aerated drinks as well as the caffeine. Opt for herbal tea instead.  - Have a glass of lukewarm water everyday.  - Include banana, watermelon and cucumber in your daily diet. Watermelon juice is great for curing acidity.  - Nariyal paani is known to soothe the system if you suffer from acidity.  - Drink a glass of milk - everyday.  - Have your last meal at least two to three hours before you hit the sack.  - Keeping long intervals between meals is another cause for acidity. Have small but regular meals.  - Try to avoid pickles, spicy chutneys, vinegar, etc.  - Boil some mint leaves in water and have a glass of this after meals.

Hi Mixing two teaspoonfuls of ghee in a glassful of milk and taking this once a day acts as a liner inside the gut and will heal all the destruction caused by the high flow of Pitta. Take pranacharya aceno syrup 2-2 tsf twice a day. Take pranacharya aceno capsule 1-1 twice a day. And avipattikar churna 1-1 gm with warm water. Take pranacharya udar bhaskar kshar churna twice a day with warm water. Take fresh butter milk empty stomach. Avoid tea. Coffee.spicy food. Junk food.

Hello My son is having diarrhea from past 3 days. He is passing more than 20 stools in a day. Earlier the color was black now it is greenish with mucous. We have consulted a homeopathy doctor and she has prescribed aloes200. Podo 200 and merc cor. For dysentery. Is it the correct medication since we are taking this from 3 days. He had fever also of 103 degree which has now reduced to 98.6. Only the frequency of stools has not reduced. We are confused if we should take him to allopathy for immediate relief or will it heal through homeopathic treatment.

Dear lybrate user, **the food but ginger is well accepted as a traditional cure for indigestion. Ginger as a food ingredient or in a strong ginger tea helps in causing stimulation of saliva, bile juices and gastric juices while all these play important roles in digestion. Drinking ginger tea is certainly much more beneficially to get rid of gas and indigestion problems than coffee and soda.

Hi doctor, my problem is that I feel cuts on the outer area of anus while passing the stool especially if I get constipated stool. Even with the feel of water that area becomes itchy. But after 5 min there is no problem. Please suggest any remedy and why does it happen?

Dear , this means you have anal fissure which is due to constipation with passage of hard faeces. This is not a disease but lifestyle problem and it would need changing. Here are few suggestions: 1. Increase fluid intake till urine is watery white. 2. Take high fiber diet like salads, leafy vegetable and fruits especially papita, banana, mango, 3. Take emoliant laxative like cremaffin plus 1 tsf at night 4. Isabgol powder 3-4 tsf in 2oo ml of water at night 5. Zincal ointment to applied inside anus twice a day especially before toilet. 6. Get away from sedentary lifestyle and start walking or exercises. 7 if needed take sitz' bath- sitting in tubful of warm water for 15-20 minutes. 8. Avoid taking pain killers and antispasmodic drugs

The gastric problem is related to stress. That is obviously causing the problem of lack of concentration. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: • Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week • Other vegetables: At least one a day • Nuts: Five servings a week • Berries: Two or more servings a week • Beans: At least three servings a week • Whole grains: Three or more servings a day • Fish: Once a week • Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week • Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. • Wine: One glass a day You avoid: • Red meat: Less than four servings a week • Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily • Cheese: Less than one serving a week • Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week • Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

Looks like you have oesophagitis, gastric ulcer or acid peptic dyspepsia, I would advise healthy life style, regularity of food, avoid spicy fried food intake. Avoid medicines causing acidity, tobacco, alcohol. If above medications taken for 4 - 6 weeks continuously does not help. You may require investigations like upper gi endoscopy, ultrasound abdomen etc. See a consulting gastoenterologist.
