Hi Mixing two teaspoonfuls of ghee in a glassful of milk and taking this once a day acts as a liner inside the gut and will heal all the destruction caused by the high flow of Pitta. Take pranacharya aceno syrup 2-2 tsf twice a day. Take pranacharya aceno capsule 1-1 twice a day. And avipattikar churna 1-1 gm with warm water. Take pranacharya udar bhaskar kshar churna twice a day with warm water. Take fresh butter milk empty stomach. Avoid tea. Coffee.spicy food. Junk food. You can take my 'acidity treatment package' which is available on Lybrate in health packages.

Apply xylocaine (5) jelly over anus after passing stool & sitz bath (sitting in leuk warm water for 10-10 min mor & eve) tab cetrizine (10) mg at night for 5 days. Can take isabgul powder 3 teaspoonful at night with glass of leuk warm water at night for 5 days for speedy recovery.

I had pain in my lower abdomen at right side. Sometimes it's too high n many times it's feels like low. Gaining weight simultaneously.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Noida
Try to lose your weight. And avoid oily and junk food and dahi and sour products e. G. Pickles etc. No rich proteins and non veg. Try to use light diets and soups of carrots and beetroot with ginger, black pepper and salts. Use khichari and dariya with green vegetables and moong daal. Follow regular daily routine getting all dietary measures and daily behaviours. Hingwastak curna or shivakshar pachan churn - one tea spoon with warm water after meals twice daily. If you feel better result then continue it for one month. Otherwise revert for further guidline.

Bleeding can occur in dengue but not necessarily. Counts are normal. Probably no need to report anything. But if you have another episode of bleeding you should consult.

Hyper acidity is also called Acid Dyspepsia, which is one of the most common problems. Hyperacidity is a medical condition in which the stomach secretes a lot of acids. It can be caused due to various medications, stressed lifestyle and spicy foods. Hyperacidity has various symptoms, which can include sudden stomach pain, vomiting, loss of appetite, flatulence and heartburn. Sometimes, the problem aggravates and leads to other complications such as chronic indigestion and gastric ulcers. Following are some of the symptoms of acidity – oRespiratory problems oCoughing oVomiting oLong heartburn oStomach and chest pain oFlatulence oBloating oStomach ulcers oPain in ears oGastroesophageal reflux oPain in muscular contraction oInadequate weight and turning down food in infants are the symptoms of acidity. Hyperacidity is known as Amlapitta in Ayurveda (Amla means sour and Pitta means heat). Hyperacidity therefore is a condition characterized by an increase of sourness and heat in the body. The aggravated Pitta impairs the digestive fire, leading to improper digestion of food and production of toxins. The Ayurvedic treatment of Hyperacidity is focused on pacifying the aggravated Pitta Dosha. Cleansing herbs are also administered to eliminate toxins from the body and cleanse the channels. This automatically enhances the digestive fire, leading to better digestion. Diet & Lifestyle Advice •Avoid tea, coffee, and carbonated or alcoholic beverages. •Avoid processed and fermented foods. •Avoid using garlic, ginger, onions, tomatoes, and vinegar in cooking. •Also avoid rich gravies, sour, salty, and spicy foods. •Curd should be strictly avoided at night. •Take meals in a relaxed atmosphere at regular intervals.

My 5 year daughter underwent a sonography today since she was having slight stomach pain every 15-20 days for 1-2 days (which used to get resolved by taking medicines). The sonography says there is slight inflammation on the appendix. I am worried - is this treatable by medicines or will it require surgery?

Hello. It is understandable that you are worried about your little girl! however all types of appendicitis need not be treated with surgery. Medical treatment is given first, failing which the appendix needs to be surgically removed. But make sure you are under the care of a good surgeon who will know when do perform the surgery. Include a lot of fiber in her diet so that she is not constipated. Hope this helps.

Tobacco can itself cause acidity, lybrate-user. You need to quit tobacco fully. Psychiatrist or you yourself can take the help of nicotine replacement gums, pastules and patches. You can also try with buproprion over the counter tablets. The dose and other psychosocial methods will be attached to it by the manufacturing company. Only varinicline needs psychiatrist's prescription. More the number of attempts to quit, better is your understanding of relapse situations. Work on them one by one. All the best.

8 Steps to Heart by Healthy Eating

MBBS, MD-General Medicine, DM - Cardiology
Cardiologist, Secunderabad
8 Steps to Heart by Healthy Eating

Choose wisely
Be mindful about choosing heart healthy foods; for example:
- plant-based diets low in fat, salt and added sugars
- high fiber and whole grains
- lean protein
- foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids (flaxseed, salmon and other fish, certain oils and nuts)

2. Read food labels
The labels on the side of food and beverage packaging provide a lot of useful information about the nutritional content, including calories, sodium, cholesterol, fat, sugars and key vitamins per serving.

3. Mind your portions
Many of us overeat without really knowing it. Portions at restaurants even the size of bagels, baked goods and other prepared items have steadily gotten bigger over the years. Know how much is too much, and which foods are better to load up on. Some people find it helpful to visually divide their plate and pre-portioning healthy foods for the week.

4. Learn how to cook healthy
How you prep your food is important; try to avoid frying food and substitute unhealthy fats when possible. It's also best to make snacks and meals from scratch and limit processed foods, which often contain hidden sodium and added sugars.

When you do eat out try to reduce your calories, fat and salt by asking for:
- no added butter or salt
- half of the portion to be boxed up before they plate it for you
- the dressing on the side

5. Limit alcohol
Experts advise limiting it to one drink a day for women and two for men.

12 fl oz of
Regular beer
8-9 fl oz of
Malt liquor (shown in a 12-oz glass)
5 fl oz of
Table wine
 

3-4 fl oz of
Fortified wine
(such as sherry or port; 3.5 oz shown)
2-3 fl oz of
Cordial, liqueur, or aperitif (2.5 oz shown)
1.5 fl oz of brandy or cognac
(a single jigger or shot)
 

1.5 fl oz shot of 80-proof distilled spirits


6. Don't shop hungry
If you go to the grocery store hungry, you are more likely to make unhealthy impulse buys.

7. Keep a food diary
This is one of the best ways to look critically at your patterns of eating over time. Based on this information, you can make healthy changes. There are also nutritional and food tracking apps that can help.

8. Ask for help
Don't go it alone or attempt to cut out major foods groups or make too many changes at once; your efforts can backfire. Talk with your health care provider or nutritionist about how many calories you should be consuming each day and come up with an eating plan that is realistic and fits your life. Ask your partner or family to help you stick to a healthy diet.


A healthy diet can help you maintain a healthy body weight and control your blood cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar.

You are in peri menopausal age. Menopause is said to have started of one does not have menses for 1 year. Menopause means that the ovaries in your body have ceased to produce the ovum and has been depleted of it. Usually when ovum is produced, another hormone called estrogen is also released. Lack of ovulation means lack of estrogen. This deficiency of estrogens causes the various symptoms that you are suffering. It is good that you are going to gym. Your weight of 76 kg is excess for your height of 160cm meet a gynecologist and take her help in solving your bloated feeling. She may prescribe some medicines depending on your assessment and help you. Natural food which help in perimenopause are soyabeans which have naturla estrogens. There are many soya products in market like soya flour, soya paneer (tofu) soya milk, etc use them and see.
