Homoeopathic medicine is best for treating stones without removal but for better results proper consultation is recommended for detailed case study. You may take Natrum Sulph 200 1 dose every week.

Hello, first of all avoid drinking water while having food this creates gas formation. Drink water atleast 30 mins after your meal. You can start with aloedigest drops,(which are available with me. 4-5 drops in a cup of water. Aloedigest contains natural ingredients. Thanks.

This level indicates that you have hepatitis. You need medical help. Get more Vitamin D. Eat a nutrient-rich, plant-based diet. These foods are often rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, in addition to being low in fat – in other words, they're great for your entire body. Focus your diet on fresh, whole foods that you’ve prepared yourself. Stay away from products that have gone through unnecessary processing, ridding them of their nutrients. Make sure your diet has a lot of colors. Green leafy vegetables, broccoli, carrots, squash and a variety of fresh fruits should be staples of your diet, along with nuts, whole grains, low-fat dairy products. Avoid high fat, processed, bakery foods. Stay away from drinking and smoking.

Every 3 to 4 months I get hard stools and when I pass hard stools, there is lot of pain and bleeding. I had consulted many doctors. Everyone told that it's fissures. But I am getting scared if it is piles. But I only get hard stools when I take any medicines or if I eat spicy foods. I apply Shield ointment to the anal opening. I take cremaffin syrup at night and after two days this problem will get solved and again after 4 months same problem arises. I also have hyper acidity problem. But what exactly is piles and what are its symptoms? Do I have piles?

Hello dear lybrate-user, Hi Warm welcome to Lybrate.com I have evaluated your query thoroughly. Essential features of fissure - It is a cut in the anal opening through hard stools or other factors.- Pain, burning,itching is more pronounced in this condition with bleeding on & off.- You can see your fissure yourself by keeping a mirror over the floor and looking anus with slight widening of the opening, it is literally a sharp cut. Hemorrhoids are mass of the tissue which protrude outside from anal opening when defecating It has 3 stages. 1st stage has no symptoms or complains in many cases occasional discomfort. 2nd stage mass comes out goes inside, recurrent bleeding when hard stools and sometimes even with soft stools. 3rd stage mass remains outside only.- Differentiating thing that piles are not painful unless 3 rd stage in most instances. Final confirmation of piles and fissure is procto anoscopy examination done by the consultant surgeon. Hope this clears your query. Wishing you fine recovery. Welcome for any further assistance. Regards dear take care.

Here are some home remedies to cure acidity.  - Skip the aerated drinks as well as the caffeine. Opt for herbal tea instead.  - Have a glass of lukewarm water everyday.  - Include banana, watermelon and cucumber in your daily diet. Watermelon juice is great for curing acidity.  - Nariyal paani is known to soothe the system if you suffer from acidity.  - Drink a glass of milk - everyday.  - Have your last meal at least two to three hours before you hit the sack.  - Keeping long intervals between meals is another cause for acidity. Have small but regular meals.  - Try to avoid pickles, spicy chutneys, vinegar, etc.  - Boil some mint leaves in water and have a glass of this after meals.
