When ever you are taking any antibiotics particularly broad spectrum antibiotics for some reason it should be prescribed by a doctor. However with antibiotics you must take some multivitamin or vit b-complex. And plenty of water because the antibiotics desentisitize the intestinal flora which helps in digesting the food.

Hi, Inadequate sleep, untimely intake of food, intake of very hot and spicy food, sour or fermented food, mental worries and tensions, excessive usage of pain killers and antibiotics are all causes of acidity which either increases the acid production or irritate the gastric mucosa resulting in hyperacidity causing pain and bloating of the stomach. Take cap. Stomotone 1-1-1 after food for 2-3 weeks and Himcocid syrup 2tsf 3 times daily before food to control burning sensation in the stomach and chest Take. Madiphala Rasayana 2tsf 3 times a day to stop vomitting. Avoid hot and spicy food. Eat small quantities frequently. Drink plenty of water. Never miss your breakfast. Avoid excess intake of coffee and tea.

Hello lybrate user- this will add to your surprise that according to ayurveda green leafy vegetables are not good for digestion. Contrary to allopathic thinking which promotes the use due to high iron content, in indian conditions excess use of leafy vegetables can cause, indigestion, acidity, diarrhea, kidney stone, worm infestation, dysentery, and even can lead to heart attack too with pre supported conditions. Follow this routine to make your stomach feel better- a) avoid excess water (not more than 2 lts per day) intake as it can cause indigestion by diluting gastric juices. B) fix your meal timings and take evening meals before 8 pm. C) avoid spicy diet and over eating. D) avoid late night workout (go to bed before 10: 30) e) use amlapitta mishran 2 tsp twice daily before meals.

Hello acidity is curable with homeopathy. Acidity refers to a burning pain in the upper abdominal and chest area. This condition is medically called as heartburn. It is not uncommon for people to have heartburn episodes but if these attacks occur very frequently they indicate a disorder called as gerd (gastro esophageal reflux disease). This is also called as acid reflux disease. Although many people are able to manage heartburn with lifestyle changes but for those who do not respond and frequently suffer from it, homeopathic medicines can be of great help in curing this disease. Homeopathy can be of great help for those who do not show much improvement even after lifestyle modifications. Homeopathic medicines? iris, arsenic album and robinia are the leading drugs in treating symptoms of reflux. Nux vomica is very effective for those who frequently eat foods that are known to trigger heartburn. It is also used when alcohol is a trigger factor. Natrum phos is another important medicine which is often used when symptoms of heartburn are accompanied by sour belching and even sour vomiting. These medicines are apt in treating acute episodes of the heartburn; but for treating gerd permanently, constitutional treatment is required. This kind of treatment is a holistic approach and the prescription is based at the detailed physical and mental analysis of the patient. Lifestyle changes that can help in reducing the symptoms of reflux are losing weight (if one is overweight), avoiding trigger foods, stop smoking, eating small frequent meals, and avoiding lying down for at least three hours after the meal. Elevating the head of the bed either by adding a wooden block underneath the bed post can be of help. By the time you can start with nux vomica 30 power 3-3 pills 3 times a day on empty stomach continue for 1 month & revert back with changes thanks.
