Gerd or gastro esophageal reflux disorder can be treated by taking some prokinetics, which I am sure your doctor would have prescribed. Weight loss should be investigated, it may be related to gerd.

You are having hyperacidity and gastritis which could be due to allergy. Or wrong food intake. Sometime due to infestations of intestinal worms like hook worms, round eorms, tape worms, normally one should get deworming at least once a year if not six monthly.

Healthy and glossy hair depends on a healthy and wholesome diet. Hair is made up of protein so a protein rich diet helps grow hair strong and healthy. Minerals are also important for lustrous hair. A recommended protein diet includes wheatgerm, pulses, legumes, and most importantly, soybean. Soybean is not only an excellent source of protein but it also acts as a DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) inhibitor reducing DHT levels in the body. Along with protein, Vitamin A and B rich foods like mangoes, dark green leafy vegetables, carrots, dried apricots, wholegrain cereals and peas will help prevent hair loss.
