Your symptoms are pointing towards some gastrointestinal disease, stomach pain after food may result from simple overeating, hot spicy food, food allergy (glutens, grains, dairy products), gastric ulcer, gall stone, appendicitis, celiac disease so first thing I advice you to visit a gastroenterologist so that a proper diagnosis can be made but for complete cure you can go for constitutional homoeopathic treatment which will remove your disease from the root.

It is a common disease mostly related to infection by water or food but usually resolves within a week. It is very simple to treat diarrhea, using simple remedies; 1. Drink a lot of homemade fluids i.e. buttermilk, lemon water, lassi, coconut water, fruit juice, plain water, etc. 2. Avoid tea, coffee, and cold drinks. 3. Do not leave food, continue usual amounts, you may include banana, rice etc. 4. Drink ORS solution as recommended (1 packet in 1 litre water), 1 glass water after each episode of diarrhea or whenever you feel like drink anything. This is best treatment. In diarrhea, you have to protect yourself from loss of water body, ORS helps a lot it. 5. Take Tablet Norflox-TZ twice a day after food for 5 days (It may cause bitter mouth which will improve automatically after completing course of drugs.) If any other symptoms, like, blood in stool, rice water stool, or symptoms worsen, contact immediately to doctor. ***Get well soon*** “In children, dehydration used to be dangerous, so be cautious and contact doctor”

General Physician,
After food poisoning its quite natural that there is aversion even towards your favourite delicacy. If there is no vomiting or diarrhea then to will take back to normal in 4 or 5 days. Have home made food alone since you feel better.

Hello, I can understand your concern. Black color stools are seen in upper gastrointestinal bleeding but not only in that condition. If you are on iron supplementation your stool may be black color, if you have taken some fruits or vegetables also black color stools may be seen. Ugi bleeding is commonly seen in chronic liver disease patients. Kindly observe your stool for another two days, avoid spicy foods, eat vegetables if not improving kindly consult a physician. If you are taking iron supplement kindly ignore black stools. Hope this helps.

Dear lybrate-user, the medicines as you told are able to give you just symptomatic cure only, NOT sufficient to give permanent cure from DU. For that you need to take moe superior medicines and follow some rules for your food habit and life style (at least for 1-2 months) till it subsides permanently. The symptoms you have told -'Evening times I feeling very difficult that my stomach was full with air like may be it was gas. Some times I feeling pain in chest @ different places in different times. Sometimes it was so uneasy to sleep' - are due to the side effects of the brands of capsules/medicines your taking.

I am 68 years old man and I have problem of some projected like balloon objects formed in the anus. What is the remedy for that?

Hi. Thanks for sending query in lybrate. I understand your concern. From your description the duration of the problem is not clear to me, neither you have mentioned anything about bleeding per rectum or weight loss, still I will give you most probable differentials: 1) prolapsed rectum 2) prolapsed hemorrhoids 3) a polyp or less likely a lower rectal growth kindly visit a surgeon/surgical gastroenterologist and get yourself evaluated clinically by doing per rectal examination, proctoscopy, colonoscopy and also a cect if the treating consultant feels the need for the above. If the diagnosis is haemorrhoids then open/stapler haemorrhoidectomy as per your treating consultant's advise. If it is a rectal prolapse which looks more probable repair through abdominal approach or perineal approach or laparoscopic repair as per your treating surgeon. The names of few methods are delorme's method, altemeire's method, lahaut's operation, anal encircling by steel wires or laparoscopic repair. If there is a polyp a biopsy has to be sent either colonoscopic or from ot. If biopsy shows malignant potential polypectomy with apr where the rectum, sigmoid and soome extent of descending colon will be resected and a permanent colostomy to be done. If colonoscopy shows multiple polyps then total proctocolectomy with ileoanal anastomosis to be done as polyps are premalignant. If unfortunately it turns out to be a carcinoma rectum apr has to be done. Hope the consultation was beneficial regards.

Specific symptoms may vary based on what type of gallbladder condition you have, although many symptoms are common among the different types of gallbladder problems. But most gallbladder symptoms start with pain in the upper abdominal area, either in the upper right or middle. Below are common symptoms of gallbladder conditions: - severe abdominal pain - pain that may extend beneath the right shoulder blade or to the back - pain that worsens after eating a meal, particularly fatty or greasy foods - pain that feels dull, sharp, or crampy - pain that increases when you breathe in deeply. 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.

5 Homeopathic Remedies for Fatty Liver

B.H. M. S.

5 Homeopathic Remedies for Fatty Liver

The liver is a vital organ within the body, which functions as a filter for the blood that comes from the digestive system. One of the conditions that afflict this organ is fatty liver, which occurs due to the accumulation of triglycerides within it. There could be multiple reasons behind this, such as alcoholism, obesity, pregnancy, hepatitis among many others. Homeopathy has some great treatments for fatty liver disease, depending on the cause.

1. Nux vomica: One of the major reason of developing a fatty liver is alcoholism. While drinking moderate amounts of alcohol isn't harmful, the tendency to drink very regularly will lead to fatty liver disease. In such cases you may feel pain in the abdomen, especially a few hours after eating. You may also suffer from constipation with cravings for fatty and spicy food. Nux Vomica is thus prescribed in these conditions.

2. Phosphorus: Fatty liver has many symptoms, which may manifest differently in different people. Many people complain about indigestion and sour belching. Your liver area may be painful and you may also vomit. You may constantly crave for foods such as ice-creams, juices and cold drinks. In such cases you may feel weak after passing stool. Phosphorus is a great remedy in such cases.

3. Chelidonium: This is one of the best overall remedies for fatty liver. Some of the symptoms where Chelidonium may work are as follows:

  • Pain in upper right abdomen
  • Enlargement of liver
  • Constipation
  • Jaundice along with fatty liver
  • Feeling excessively weak
  • Craving for hot drinks and hot foods

4. Calcarea carb: If you are obese or fairly overweight and suffer from fatty liver, calcarea carbonica can be very effective in treating the symptoms. Some of the symptoms exhibited by the patients where this medication is effective would be a yearning for eggs, profuse sweating and sensitivity to air if it's cold.

5. Lycopodium: This medication is very effective in treating fatty liver disease, especially if you suffer from gastric issues and acidity. You may have symptoms like, bloating of the stomach, burning of the esophagus when belching or burping and pain in the upper right abdomen. You may also exhibit cravings for hot drinks and sweets. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath and ask a free question.

Mucus leakage from anus can happen in people having anal sex over a long period of time. It is better to avoid anal sex and she should go for anal toning exercises. Maintain peri -anal hygiene and consult a surgeon for further advice.
