Dear take 1 glass of milk shake before going to gym it is probably due to empty stomach. Follow the tips for few days: avoid tea, coffee, and carbonated or alcoholic beverages. Especially stop drinking bed tea. Avoid using garlic, ginger, onions, tomatoes, and vinegar in cooking. Curd should be strictly avoided at night. Practice yoga and pranayama such as vajrasana, bhujangasana, salabhasana, bhastrika pranayama, shitali pranayama and shitkari pranayama. Drink plenty of fluids and water. Avoid constipation.

Avoid tea/coffee alcohol, smoking spicy food. Life style changes and food habbits can solve your problem easily. Chew your food properly. Avoid outside food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy done. Tab nexpro-l 1 tab empty stomach.

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.

You should do an Endoscopy first to rule out any any gastric ulcer. Try to take balance diet/good sleep/morning walk. Take Nux vom 30 once daily at night for 14 days and get back to me
