Fatty liver is a common condition of the liver due to modern life-style, food, and drink habits. Collection of fats in liver cells is called fatty liver. This condition is also called steatosis hepatis or steatorrhoeic hepatosis. Fatty liver by itself though abnormal, is a relatively harmless condition. Liver is the largest organ in the human body. It plays a vital role in keeping the biochemical balance intact. Why fatty liver occurs, is unknown. A fatty diet or overeating by itself never results in a fatty liver. The fat may come from increased absorption from the intestines or from elsewhere in the body. But, putting it generally, the liver loses its capacity to eliminate fats deposited within it. Yet, 70% of persons suffering from NASH are found to be obese. Homeopathy addresses the underlying causes behind fatty liver, improves liver functions and reduces the symptoms as well as modifies the disease process. Fatty liver is partly reversible condition if treated in the early stages. In later stages, it can help to improve the liver functions. Well chosen homeopathic medicines can help control and reduce Fatty liver disease. Homeopathy is recommended for cases of Fatty Liver. A homeopathic constitutional treatment will give you best results naturally You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects Medicines will reach you via courier services

Avoid all types of fast food, non-vegetarian food and oily/spicy food. Take as much fruit as possible. This will help to increase alkaline in the body, neutralizing the acidity affects. Banana, Water Melon and cucumber are few recommended fruits which are proved helpful in acidity. Drink sufficient water (At least 3 ltr). Take water more frequently. Almond helps in quick control over heart burn. Whenever you feel like heart burn, take few pieces of Almonds. Jaggery (gur) is a proven home remedy for acidity. Put one piece in mouth and suck it slowly. Green coconut water is very helpful in acidity. Sleep sufficient. Do not work till late night. Fresh mint juice helps in reducing the side effects of acidity. You can have a glass of mint juice after food for a fast relief. Take a small piece of raw garlic; this is a very good digestive element. But don’t take overdose, or else it will have negative effect on acidity.

Homeopathic Treatment of Heartburn and Acidity Accompanied By Bloating!

Homeopathic Treatment of Heartburn and Acidity Accompanied By Bloating!

Stomach produces gastric juices (acid and enzymes) for the digestion process. Acid reflux is a medical condition in which there is back flow of gastric juices/ acids from the stomach to esophagus. Too much reflex can cause the stomach acids to burn the esophagus and can result into serious complications. The esophageal sphincter lies at the junction where the stomach and the esophagus join; lower esophageal sphincter plays a most important role in acid reflux condition. This sphincter allows food to enter the stomach and it prevents the reflux of acidic stomach contents back into esophagus, as a result of malfunctioning of lower esophageal sphincter, condition like acid reflux develops.

Triggers of heart burn

Acid Reflux Symptoms

When it comes to the digestive system, heart burn and acidity are probably two of the most common medical complaints. These conditions may be often be considered synonymous. It is affected by the acid levels in the stomach. Heartburn refers to an irritation in the esophagus by this stomach acid. It is characterized by a burning sensation in the upper abdomen. You may also experience a bloating sensation in the stomach. An antacid can provide relief in cases of acidity but this relief is temporary and superficial. It does not address the root cause of acidity and hence does not reduce the frequency of heartburn attacks.

Homeopathy is a holistic form of medication that can be quite effective in the treatment of heartburn and acidity. This form of treatment does not address only the symptoms present but also looks into the overall physical, mental and emotional health of the person. In doing so, it addresses the root cause of the acidity and treats the problem as a whole. Unlike antacids and other allopathic medications, homeopathy does not follow a one size fits all approach. Though the symptoms may be similar, medication for each case must be customized to suit the patient’s overall health. These are known as constitutional remedies.

According to homeopathy, heart burn and acidity is not a problem in itself but is a symptom of a larger problem. It may be indicating an allergy to a certain food, stress or overeating unhealthy food. Though homeopathy has negligible side effects, in case your heartburn is accompanied by vomiting, nausea, extreme pain or dehydration, you must seek advice from a homeopathic doctor and not try to treat yourself. Homeopathic medication can relieve the symptoms of acidity as well as strengthen your digestive system so as to reduce the chances of recurrent acidity attacks. If your acidity is triggered by an allergy, it can also help treat this allergy.

Homeopathic medication is derived from natural sources. These medications are usually mild and do not overtake the body’s immune system to treat a condition but support and strengthen it. Some of the common homeopathic remedies used to treat heart burn include Nux Vomica, Arsenicum, Ipecacuanha, and Podophyllum. The best medication for you will depend on the intensity of your symptoms, the food you feel it has been triggered by and any other symptoms you may be experiencing. Along with knowing the right medication, it is also important for it to be consumed in the right dosage and frequency.

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.
