MBBS, MS - General Surgery

Colonoscopy is relatively safe in absence of medical/surgical contradications when done by trained doctor. The only issue you need to know about is about gut perforation the chances of which is very low about 1%.

Hi doctor, should I take digeplex for my stomach pain? Or are there any other medications which I can take in this case? I have problem in digesting food. I don't eat outside because of this very reason. Please help me out.

Dear user we can very well understand your concern for indigestion. Please try to understand that indigestion is more of life style issue than anatomical. It is advisable if you can start exercising on a regular basis along with high fibre diet and liberal fluid intake. Digeplex basically contains digestive enzymes. Though this is quite a safe medicine but it is advisable that it should be consumed only under the prescription of a registered medical practitioner. Hope that solves your query. Anything more then feel free to revert.

You should get your semen tested to confirm that there is low sperm count. If it is low then you can be treated for that. Other problems can be solved by taking multivitamins tablets after proper investigations.

Fatty liver is abnormal deposition of fat in liver. Nafl for long duration may create major issues for the person. Rule out cardiac problem as a cause of breathlessness. Feeling of stomach fullness could be because of either swollen lining of the stomach or other organ compressing the stomach. Consult surgeon, gastroenterologist or hepatologist whomsoever you have access to and get further evaluated.

It is because of the weakness of your immune system. Many factors cause it do become weak. Like mental and physical stress, poor digestive system, lack of vitamins etc. You may consider taking homoeopathic treatment with good homoeopath.

How Ayurveda Helps Manage Gastritis?

How Ayurveda Helps Manage Gastritis?

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian life science that requires you to make various lifestyle changes along with the use of medication that is based on herbs and condiments with massages and Yogic postures. This field of medicine believes in getting to the root of the problem so as to cure it and prevent it in the future as well. Gastritis is no different and enjoys the same kind of attention when it comes to Ayurveda.

Here is everything you need to know about the Ayurvedic perspective of gastritis:

  • Definition: As per Ayurveda, gastritis is known as Urdhva Amlapitta, which can lead to the occurrence of stomach ulcers when the inflammation of the stomach lining goes untreated for a prolonged period of time. This inflammation is the basic outcome of the condition.
  • Causes: Problems in the Vata Dosha, one of the four Doshas in the body, can cause this condition. Also, a build up of Ama or toxins due to poor digestive health, can lead to the occurrence of this disease. As per Ayurveda, there are many reasons that may cause this toxin build up and the imbalance in the Vata Dosha. This includes eating spicy food on a regular or frequent basis and taking too many drugs like pain killers and analgesics which can lead to this condition. Also, too much of alcohol consumption and greasy food can cause gastritis. Further, one of the main causes of gastritis as per Ayurveda, is the presence of too much stress and worry, and the lack of a proper routine when it comes to eating, sleeping and exercising.
  • Symptoms: The main symptoms include appetite loss and nausea, as well as discomfort and pain in the abdomen. Gastrointestinal bleeding and blood discharge may also occur for patients suffering from this condition. Headaches and vomiting are also common symptoms of this condition.
  • Medication: There are various Ayurvedic medicines that can help in treating this condition. Sukumara Ghrita are ghee based preparations that can be taken every morning with a glass of warm milk in order to activate the digestive fires and improve the digestive powers. The difference can usually be seen in a matter of days. Dhatri Lauha includes amla juice which should be taken twice a day. Lemon juice, ajwain, amla and ginger are also helpful in such situations.
  • Lifestyle Changes: Avoiding spicy and greasy food as well as stopping alcohol abuse and smoking can help in curing this condition. One should also stay away from excessively stressful mental and physical tasks.

Taking the right steps at the right time for a proper routine with good habits can help in treating this condition as per Ayurveda. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.
