Fennel seeds can give you relief from other indigestion symptoms like gas and bloating, too. Add one teaspoon of crushed fennel seeds to a cup of hot water and let it steep for eight to 10 minutes. Remove from heat, allow it to cool and strain it. Add a little honey and drink it slowly. Also take Colocynth 30 - one dose for pain when required.

Hi, I am suffering from ulcerative colitis disease is there any permanent remedy? What should be my food habits?

Hello, The only permanent remedy for ùlcerative colitis is total colon removal through surgery. With medication the problem can be controlled and not everyone requires colon removal. There are no specific dietary restrictions. Avoid outside food. During an acute attack milk should be avoided.

Hi I am suffering from inflammation in rectal area only inflammation occurs when I pass the stool. This inflammation usually occurs when I drink alcohol.Can somebody suggest what it is?

Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS)
General Surgeon, Chennai
The inflammation that you feel may be haemorrhoids when you drink alcohol, the body looses lot of water, making you dehydrated, dehydration will make the stool hard resulting in more prominent haemorrhoids. I suggest when ever you are consuming alcohol, before and after drink lot of water. It will prevent the problem.

Anal fissure is a common disease, treated by general surgeons. It requires sitz baths, some local intra anal ointment application, anti inflammatory drugs, treatment of constipation etc. Sometimes surgery may be required if severe condition or if medical treatment fails.

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.

Avoid tea/coffee alcohol, smoking spicy food. Life style changes and food habbits can solve your problem easily. Chew your food properly. Avoid outside food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy done. Tab nexpro-l 1 tab empty stomach.

Hello doctor.I m worried about a small lump I developed at the opening of my anus which was result of me passing a dry and hard stool with pain.Pls advice how it can b treated.The pain has got lighter in the last one day.I applied an ointment. Thanks

Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS), MS - Urology, MBBS
Urologist, Ahmedabad
Dear , This is very likely to be perianal haematoma which occurs sometimes after passage of hard faeces.If pain has decreased then it would probably subside. It is better if you take Sitz bath once or twice a day: sitting in a tub full of lukewarm water with a few drops of dettol in it. This will help to subside it quickly. However if pain increase and takes throbbing character then a course of antibiotics should be taken. If pain or throbbing becomes severe enough to disturb your sleep at night then contact a proctologist or a general surgeon. Dr. Kiran Mehta.

Hyper acidity

Ayurveda, Hapur
Hyper acidity
What is hyperacidity?
It is an uncomfortable burning sensation that often times creeps up the throat, and is a symptom more so than a disease. It is caused by acid reflux.


Home Remedies For Hyperacidity

•Take 3-6 gm of liquorice (mulethi) root powder with warm milk.
•Drink cold milk without any additives. Make it more effective add one teaspoonful of ghee to it.
•Eat overripe bananas during an attack of acidity. They have higher amounts of potassium making it even more effective.
•Boil one cup of water and to it add one tsp of Fennel (souf). Cover and leave overnight. Strain the water in the morning, add 1 tsp of honey (shahad).Taken this prepration 3 times a day.
•Chew Cumin (jeera) or boil it in water. Drink the water when it has cooled down.
•Chop some mint leaves, add them to a pot of boiling water and drink this water after cooling it.
•To relieve acidity crush two pods of cardamom (with or without the skin), boil the powder in water and drink the cooled juice for instant relief.
•Crush ginger, mix it with a small piece of jaggery (gud) and keeping sucking on it allowing the juice to slowly reach the stomach.
• One teaspoon of amla powder twice a day to help keep acidity way.
•Chewing holy basil (tulsi) leaves.
