Hello. Acidity occurs when there is excess secretion of acids in the gastric glands of the stomach. When the secretion is more than usual, we feel, what is commonly known as heartburn, which is normally triggered off by consumption of spicy foods. 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. - Coconut water is known to soothe the system if you suffer from acidity. - Drink a glass of cold milk - everyday. - Have your last meal at least two to three hours before going to bed. - 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. - Jaggery, lemon, banana, almonds and yogurt are all known to give you instant relief from acidity. - Excessive smoking and drinking will increase acidity, so cut down. - Try chewing gum. The saliva generated helps move food through the esophagus, easing symptoms of heartburn. - Eat Ginger as it aids in digestion. - A simple preparation of lemon water with sugar can be sipped on an hour before lunch to reduce uneasiness. - Have vegetables like drumsticks, beans, pumpkin, cabbage, carrot and spring onions. Medication: Take Biochemic medicine - Natrum Phos. 6x/ thrice daily ½ an hour after meals.

* firstly take your meals with proper chewing and do not be hurry in taking meals to avoid acidity after meals. * take less spicy food & avoid chilly in meals. * try to avoid stress. If you feel unable to avoid stress & extra thinking then follow meditation techniques. Sit in a calm & well airy room & do long breathing. Concentrate on your breathing. Do it for atleast 3-5 minutes twice a day. You can do anulom - vilom pranayam in the morning. It calm down your mind and lower the gastric irritation. * put 1 teaspoon of fennel seeds (saunff) in a glass of water in night and drink this water in morning everyday to cure gastric problem. * take few leaves of mint (pudina), coriander leaves (dhania), pinch of rock salt & pinch of black pepper. Crush them well and make paste. Take 1 teaspoon this paste (chatni) with meal in morning & evening.

While I m doing motion that time excess blood come it happen from last few days.what to do

If bleeding is painless then most commonly your piles/ haemorrhoids are bleeding. If you are above 45 years of age or else younger with family history of colonic problems then you need to be checked for your colonic problems too. Bleeding from piles/ haemorrhoids usually happens when size increases (higher grades). You need to see an expert coloproctologist, get proctoscopy done and further treatment based on findings. Drink plenty of fluids and have more fibres in diet to prevent constipation.

Being constipated means your bowel movements are difficult or happen less often than normal. Almost everyone has it at some point in life, and it's usually not serious. Still, you'll feel much better when your system is back on track. The normal length of time between bowel movements varies widely from person to person. Some people have bowel movements three times a day. Others have them only once or twice a week. Going longer than three or more days without one is usually too long. After three days, the stool or feces become harder and tougher to pass. Homeopath can effectively help in such condition.

I am 45year man having colitis for past 10 years which becomes acute sometimes, but no blood drop ever occurred. Pls advice sir.

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Refrain from having anti-inflammatory pain medications, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen. Causes are more or less idiopathic, ie reasons for this is unknown yet! one possible cause is an immune system malfunction. When your immune system tries to fight off an invading virus or bacterium, an abnormal immune response causes the immune system to attack the cells in the digestive tract, for diet: avoid foods that you know cause you trouble. You can have lots of probiotics and curd. Consult privately for detailed treatment in biochemic.

The prognosis (chance of recovery) and treatment options depend on the following: The stage of the cancer (whether the cancer has spread from the gallbladder to other places in the body). Whether the cancer can be completely removed by surgery. Treatment may also depend on the age and general health of the patient and whether the cancer is causing signs or symptoms. Gallbladder cancer can be cured only if it is found before it has spread, when it can be removed by surgery. If the cancer has spread, palliative treatment can improve the patient's quality of life by controlling the symptoms and complications of this disease. Consult an oncologist for furthur treatment options.

I always suffer from gas bloating problem. It worsens when I take oily foods. My appetite also not good.
It may be due to slow peristalsis, Food allergies or minimal Intestinal obstruction due to some infection/infestation/Inflammation, You may send me more information about your problem for better diagnosis Until then you can take Homeopathic Treatment. If you have Faith in Homeopathy, You can use following Homeopathic Medicines: (1) Kalmegh Q (2) Chelidonium Q Avoid fat fried food, take small meals at short intervals, preferably early breakfast and light dinner. Performing Kapalbhati Pranayama and Bhastrika Pranayama with Neoli-Kriya in mornings after passing stools will certainly help you until it is cured.
