I am suffering from bleeding from anus at the time of bathroom since 3 year, bleeding is irregular, please suggest me what can I medicine use to stop bleeding.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Hyderabad
According to your history bleeding from anus is at the time of passing stool only, as there is no pain associated it doesn't look like you have a fissure in ano, you may be having piles which may be of first degree or second as your history is not that clear. My advice to you is to eat foods with high fiber content like lots of green vegetables, fruits, avoid refined foods with low fiber, like pasta, noodles, meats, etc. Drink plenty of water, inculcate good bowel habits, avoid constipation. As bleeding from any where is abnormal I advice you to undergo proctoscopic examination at the earliest by proctologist or a general surgeon.

Incurable digestive system diseases and their efficient and successful ayurvedic treatment - the parpati kalp:-

In my career of clinical practice spanning three decades I have seen best results emerging out of'parpati treatment' administered to patients suffering from so called incurable diseases in modern drug practice. However, prolonged procedural use and food protocol has to be strictly followed in order to get best of ayurvedic wisdom. Often slow pace of treatment has a repulsive attitude in patients not to opt for such treatment.

In my opinion, slow treatment without side effects, is far better than taking toxic drugs which give instant relief but on the other hand is sure not to cure the disease even when used for prolonged times.

Coeliac disease:

It is a disease in which the small intestine is hypersensitive to gluten, leading to difficulty in digesting food.

Irritable bowel syndrome:

A widespread condition involving recurrent abdominal pain and diarrhoea or constipation, often associated with stress, depression, anxiety, or previous intestinal infection.

Crohn's disease:

A chronic inflammatory disease of the intestines, especially the colon and ileum, associated with ulcers and fistulae.

Parpati:

Parpati has an important place in rasakalpas. Parpati is the form which is obtained in flakes, gets disintegrated in the body at the level of grahani. Hence it is specifically being used in grahani related disorders and is effective in correcting appetite. This dosage form is specially designed to show its action directly in the grahani region i. E. In the duodenum region. During the process of making parpati kalpa the ingredients are subjected to heat and melted. This molten mixture is further allowed to cool by pressing it between two banana leaves over two cowdung cakes. 

The process is such that the agni gets locked into the parpati kalpa making it to act best in disorders related to agnimandya. The dosage form is such that it does not act in the stomach but instead starts its action in grahani i. E. Duodenum. Panchamruta parpati contains parad and gandhak while shweta parpati is devoid of both parad and gandhak. The shodhan of the ingredients and the amount of heat to which the mixture is subjected is meticulously monitored to maintain the standard and consistency in the quality of the product.

But please take these medicines under supervision of a qualified vaidya i. E. Aurveda doctor.

There is possibility of worms infestation. Get stool routine examination for ova/cyst of worms for consecutive 3 days. If any report is positive, consult doctor for de-worming. If pain start in upper part of abdomen after eating food and there is acidity/ sour eructations, then there is possibility of acid peptic disease/ peptic ulcer. Consult doctor for treatment.

Kya har bar acidity hone par agar ham daily eno pite hai to isse koi khatra to nhi hai Please reply me Hindi thanks.
You should avoid excessive medications. Here are some home remedies to cure acidity.  - 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.

Enlarged fatty liver with diabetes and high alcohol consumption will lead to liver failure sooner than you can imagine. So first, get a handle on the situation by cutting your alcohol consumption. Alcohol is going to stress out your liver and its going to become more and more enlarged and then will shrink itself to cirrhosis. You are 36 years- there is still a lot in your hands to change. Sadly, once liver failure will set in- it will be point of no return.

Sir I have problem of heart burning. But we some time I feel its a heart attack problem. How to I determine it.
Heart burn & heart attack do confuse the patients and doctors and basic tests like ECG and ECHO are carried out. There is a new test called Troponin finger prick test that diagnoses heart attack through a drop of blood taken from finger and spread on strip ,like a pregnancy test is done. It costs only 200/- Simultaneously get heart burn corrected , eat regularly a nourishing diet , do not over eat or stay hungry for long hours. Avoid spices and oils and other foods causing distention.

Hi. You are having GERD. The reflux is severe now and you should undergo repeat endoscopy and 24 hr ph score for accurate diagnoses. Since it's a recurrent attack you may require a antireflux surgery. This can be performed laparoscopically. You should meet a gastroenterologist and GI surgeon now. Take all postural precautions like do not lie down immediately after meals. Take small light frequent meals. Avoid spicy oily food. Elevate your headend by 30 degrees. Continue antacids.
