Hii doctor my questions is that I am a migraine patient and I have too much problem of gas what diet and fruits are suitable for me and gives me energy because sometimes I feel very weak plss tell me I what I eat and include in my daily diet for digestion and energy.

This common ailment often happens because you swallow more air than usual, overeat, smoke, chew gum, or eat foods that cause gas. Flatulence can be embarrassing and painful for anyone, but don’t worry! You easily reduce flatulence with diet and lifestyle choices. Have smaller meals throughout the day. Eat six small meals per day instead of three large meals. Your system may more easily digest fewer meals and produce less gas from them Eat easily digestible carbs. Foods that contain simple carbohydrates may be easier for you to digest Avoid gas-promoting foods. Plan your meals each day to include easily digestible carbs. Steer clear of food choices that may make create gas in your intestines. Find suitable replacements for the following gas-promoting foods Beans and lentils. Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts. Bran. Dairy products containing lactose. Fruit such as apples and pears. Sorbitol, a sugar substitute found in some sugar-free products. Fatty junk foods, like fast food burgers or pizza. Chew your meal slowly. If you're famished or you're a fast eater, avoid the temptation to shovel your food into your mouth. Chew each meal slowly so you don’t swallow too much air. Doing this can aid digestion and may minimize the production of gas. Get regular exercise. Physical activity can help your intestines expel gas and stay regular. Exercise for at least 30 minutes most days of the week. If you are unable to do 30 minutes, aim for 2 15-minute sessions of physical movement, which can also ease flatulence. Try different kinds of exercise to prevent flatulence: Running Walking Biking Swimming Yoga For medication consult online in private.

I am 18 years old and I have migraine problem for three years. After having this problem I got spices with progressive glasses but it was vain because I have still migraine problem. Please can you tell me the cure of it.

Migraine is a relapsing type of headache disorder. Treatment for this includes medicines to relieve acute and severe attacks of headache. Also to prevent relapses you need to take a prophylactic treatment and avoid precipitating factors of migraine. Prophylactic treatment has to be decided individually according to the onset of headaches, severity, duration, associated symptoms of sleep, anxiety, stress etc spectacles and glasses have no role in treatment of migraine.

Can Birth Conditions like Autism be Treated with Homeopathy?

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy

Can Birth Conditions like Autism be Treated with Homeopathy?

Autism and the role of homeopathy in treating this condition

A mental condition that takes shape during early childhood, Autism is identified by characteristics like difficulty in communication, the use of language, understanding abstract concepts and building bonds with other people. This brain development disorder is also characterized by the performance of repetitive behaviors in the affected individual.

Homeopathy approach in treating Autism

Diagnosis of the condition by a homeopath requires the adoption of an extensive and intensive approach. From collecting detailed information about symptoms like a reaction to vaccines, thermal sensitivities and medical history of the family to understanding sleep postures; treatment of this condition requires an understanding of every vital factor associated with the condition. The hardcore approach is vital for understanding the stimulus/response connection of symptoms. This is because whenever an autistic child undergoes stressful situations, the reaction is a sign that a homeopath cannot ignore. By completely understanding the cycle of stress and reaction, a homeopath can only be able to suggest the right treatment program.

What about the remedies prescribed for treating the condition?

Being a holistic branch of medicine, homeopathy takes into account the complete physical as well as the mental makeup of the individual. Additionally, in this alternative medicine, the homeopath also takes into consideration the details of the disease while recommending remedies. Remedies like Carcinocin, Secretin and Thuja are favored the most for treating the condition. At the same time, the appropriate remedies are recommended after having a thorough understanding as to whether the individual falls within the constitutional makeup of the remedies considered.


Another essential aspect of this branch of medicine in the treatment of this brain development disorder is the practice of using LM potencies (homeopathic medicines on the last scale of potencies). These remedies are not only acted faster but are also gentler compared to others. They have been found to be very effective in preventing the individual from falling prey to the old symptoms and can be frequently repeated as well as used for a long time.

Please suggest foods that one must have to prevent or eliminate neurological problems in middle age or senior age. Also my mother is 68 years old and is suffering from ring from dementia.

Dear lybrate-user ji Vitamin B12 are considered to be good supplements for nerve related issues and keep your mother well hydrated. Kindly get her consulted with a neurologist because I am not aware of her other comorbid illnesses for which she would have been under medication and hence an expert in this would be better to suggest supplements. Regarding Dementia- it is an age related deterioration and we would have to evaluate the extent of deterioration and which areas of brain is affected so that those specific areas can be retrained via neuropsychological rehabilitation. We also need to evaluate the past history whether she has hypertension, diabetes or has had stroke etc in order to come to a diagnosis of type of dementia (vascular, alzheimers, lewy bodies etc) and whether Dementia is followed by Parkinsons or not wherein we call it as Parkinson plus syndrome. You would have to take her to a neuropsychologist and if you placed in Delhi-NCR, you can consult me in my clinic or we can see how to work out so that I am able to brief the family members also about the prognostic factors and do’s and do not’s based on the present condition of your mother. Hope you find this useful. Please let me know if I can be of any help to you or your family. Thank you for writing to us.
