My spouse is having colitis and what is the best treatment to over come it and kindly advise a healthy diet for her please

Diploma in homeopathy, B. Sc
Homeopath, Gurgaon
Her diet must include fresh fruits and a full serving of salads at every meal: cucumber, tomato, carrot, radish, onion slices or spring onion, raw cauliflower, cabbage leaf, etc. All this is essential. Cut out any junk food and aerated drinks totally. Generally foods that come out of a packet, can, or bottle shud be avoided. Exercise to increase circulation:- 2 mins of medium hard exercise then 1 min rest - do this four times a day. She can either do it all in one go or split it into sessions through the day. In total it is only 12 mins a day so should not be a big issue. In short, live and eat healthy and she will develop energy, a glowing skin, a'go' in life -regardless of age and the diet will remove inflammations from her system. Contact for supporting meds.

Kayam churna's biggest demerit is that it has senna (sanaya leaves) which has habbit formation tendency in the body. Home remedy for chronic constipation n flatulence- bel's pulp (bilva, aegle marmelos)- 100 gm sonf - 100 gm isabgol - 100 gm cardamom (small) - 100 gm mix all well with sugar (300 gm)- store this granulated powder well. Consume 10 gm in morning before breakfast with lukewarm water. Repeat 10 gm at night after meals with lukewarm water.

What will be the condition of a patient after distal gastrectomy due to his gastric carcinoma.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
What will be the condition of a patient after distal gastrectomy due to his gastric carcinoma.
Complications of post-gastrectomy syndrome include anemia as a result of vitamin b12 or iron malabsorption and osteoporosis. These problems generally occur months or even years after gastric surgery. Vitamin b12 malabsorption occurs when a protein known as intrinsic factor is either not produced by the stomach (this is a condition called pernicious anemia) or when the proximal stomach is resected (the portion of the stomach that produces intrinsic factor). In either case, that absence of intrinsic factor leads to the poor absorption of vitamin b12. Under normal circumstances intrinsic factor binds to vitamin b12 and assists with the absorption of this vitamin in the lower portion of the small bowel. When vitamin b12 is poorly absorbed, anemia and, in some cases, poor nerve function can occur. This generally does not happen for several years because vitamin b12 is stored in large amounts in the liver. Iron deficiency anemia develops because removal of the stomach often leads to a marked decrease in the production of gastric acid. This acid is necessary to convert dietary iron to a form that is more readily absorbed in the duodenum. Anemia usually does not occur for a few years after gastric surgery because iron is stored in moderately large amounts in the bone marrow, where red blood cells are produced. Osteoporosis develops as a result of poor calcium absorption, another problem that occurs after gastric surgery.

Home Remedies of Acidity: 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.

Since its (polyp) more then 5 mm, better to get removed surgically, ayurveda have medicines and panchkarma treatment too for it but it take long to get visible result. Since that place rt upper side below rib cage is site of gall bladder it pushes liver so you experience pain in that perticular area.
