Dear lybrate user, According to your symptoms, it seems that you are suffering from acidity. Avoid oily spicy food immediately. Take half glass of milk and half glass of water. Add one pinch cardamom powder in it and drink it in the early morning daily. And only take fruits in the breakfast. You will feel relaxed.

Avoid outside spicy and fried 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.

Visit your doctor (general practitioner) and take medicine for acid reflux. It is most likely causing the ulcers too. Once the acid reflux is under control, the ulcers will heal.

Actually it is for my grand mother who is 55 years old and she has a problem that blood falls with stool for 4 month. She has many dots in mouth. Then we get her to a md. Nd the first in the test it seems malina but in the endoscopy it seems nothing. What should we do in this situation.

Mr. Lybrate-user, I think your grandmother may be having haemorhoids or piles, consultation with a surgeon can rule it out. If that turns out to be negative, she may require a colonoscopy to rule out bleeding from rectum & colon.

Looks like fissure. You should try medical treatment for a while. If not relieved. Surgery is one option. If you want I can prescribe you medications. Send me any reports that you got done or any medications that you have taken till now.

Gallstones can be cured with medicines which are combination of herbal and homeo. There will no such need to undergo surgery or operations. You can connect with me and I can provide you with treatment by which you can get cured with our medicines only. The medicines are combination of herbal and homeopathic only. I will suggest you to avoid surgery there is no need of it. You need to take medicines that can help in removing them naturally such as our medicines combination of herbal and homeo that will help in removing stones. Gall bladder gets diseased due to an unhealthy diet and lifestyle. This leads to an imbalance of the acid-alkali balance in the body which causes the cholesterol to precipitate in the gall bladder leading to stone formation. Over time, these may get infected and lead to an acute inflammation, pain, fever etc. A stone may move ahead into a narrow passage or the duct and get stuck leading to severe agony. The safest and way that should be used to remove gallstones is removing it naturally, not just remove gallstones from gallbladder but also remove the cause of gallstones. No matter how much stones are there in gallbladder they all will be removed using medicines and process we follow at SSOHM.

I have a gas problem always I can't manage this kind of trouble but around 2-3 months this problem really effect to me.
Gas could be due to indigestion or incorporation of air during eating or side effects of any medications (if any). If the cause is indigestion, try taking small meals at regular intervals, avoidpulses, cruciferous veggies, high fibre foods. Donot speak or drink water while eating. This should subside your problem.

Dear Lybrate User, Observe the following to improve your digestive system---*Diet –Avoid fried, spicy and sour foods. *Maintain food timings-neither stomach should be empty nor heavy, frequent small helpings may be ok. *Prefer – whole grains, milk, curd, greens, fruits and such items which suit you. *Have timely and adequate sleep. *. Drinking lots of water is good.*Be relaxed and avoid tension *. Daily jogging or such exercise to ensure good blood circulation which helps digestion, dissipation of gases and nutrients reaching the body *Increased blood circulation, in turn, takes away toxins from the system making you more active agile and fit. Digestive disorder and flatulence bloats your abdomen causing pressure on other adjacent organs. *Fennel seeds can give you relief from other indigestion symptoms like gas and bloating, too. •Add one teaspoon of crushed fennel seeds to a cup of hot water and let it steep for eight to 10 minutes. Remove from heat, allow it to cool and strain it. Add a little honey and drink it slowly.
