This is pre menstrual syndrome. This occurs due hormonal fluctuations and changes in neurotransmitters in brain. It is very common. If it doesn't affect your functioning just ignore. If it bothers you try restricting salt, taking calcium supplements and taking adequate rest. If this doesn't work you will have to go to a gynaecologist who will give you diuretics, some hormones to control this.

Mr Balakrishna, If your blood sugar is in good control (fasting close to 100 mg and PP around 160 mg/100 ml and HbA1c <7%), then consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits about 100 g a day. Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Avoid red meat and egg yolk. Always use whole grain flour for making roti and chapati, no maida. Avoid high fat cheese, butter, ghee and other saturated fats. In addition exercise regularly for 1 hour a day or more. Avoid smoking and alcohol completely.

Plz I have small stone in gall bladder. Can it will be cured by homeopathic medicines.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Delhi
Yes, it can be cured but not only with homeopathic medicines, 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 via motion passage. 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 gall stones is removing it naturally, not just remove gall stones from gall bladder but also remove the cause of gall stones.

What is the treatment of acute pancreatitis? How fair its prognosis? How much time the treatment takes to cure?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Patients with severe acute pancreatitis require intensive care. Within hours to days, a number of complications (eg, shock, pulmonary failure, renal failure, gastrointestinal [gi] bleeding, or multiorgan system failure) may develop. The goals of medical management are to provide aggressive supportive care, to decrease inflammation, to limit infection or superinfection, and to identify and treat complications as appropriate. Autoimmune pancreatitis is a rare condition. Corticosteroids should not be used to treat this condition in the short term in patients who are suspected of having autoimmune pancreatitis and who present with acute pancreatitis.

The intestinal lining do not tolerate chemical compounds available in certain spices. Some spices passes from the stomach to intestine and causes irritation. The food also moves fastly from inflamed lining. The intestines senses this and draw more water from the circulation and thus cause diarrhea. If you intend to eat spicy food please add yougurt, butter milk with your food it will minimize the diarrhea. Drink one glass of lemon juice after meal to fasten metabolism. Drink water more. Try to identify the spicy food allergic to you avoid that.
