You need to take medicines that can help in removing them naturally such as our medicines combination of herbal and homeo that will help in removing stones. Gall bladder gets diseased due to an unhealthy diet and lifestyle. This leads to an imbalance of the acid-alkali balance in the body which causes the cholesterol to precipitate in the gall bladder leading to stone formation. Over time, these may get infected and lead to an acute inflammation, pain, fever etc. A stone may move ahead into a narrow passage or the duct and get stuck leading to severe agony. The safest and way that should be used to remove gallstones is removing it naturally, not just remove gallstones from gallbladder but also remove the cause of gallstones.

I have heartburn twice in a week. I have been having omeprazole for a year. Will there be any side effects because of this?

It should not cause problem so early but not a good idea to use it non-stop especially if your symptoms are not resolving. Consult a medical gastroenterologist and undergo upper gastrointestinal endoscopy to see if there is an ulcer.

Dear , fissure is the result of passage of hard toilet or severe diarrhoea. Hard faeces is due to constipation and it is not a disease but a lifestyle problem and unless you do that sort of adjustment away from sedentary lifestyle it will remain there. Increase your fluid intake, take high fiber and high residue diet, increase physical activity like walking, games or exercises. Take emollient laxative like cremaffin plus 1 tsf at night with isabgol powder 3-4 tsf with 300 ml. Of water at night. Apply zincal ointment inside anus twice a day and sitz bath-sit in tubful of warm water for 15 minutes daily.

Do not stop breast feeding. Your child is absolutely normal and does not require any medication. This condition is called breast milk diarrhea. This is very normal that child who is on exclusive breast feeding may pass 10 times motion per day. You need to consult your pediatrician only when there is blood in stool. If your child is alert active playful accepting mothers milk and gaining weight 20 to 30 gms a day you need not worry about. Please continue exclusive mothers milk for first 6 months. No medical intervention is required. Best wishes.

Size of the breast is genetically determined so you cannot alter size much. but having physical exercises with stress on the chest muscles will increase the tone of the muscles which will firm up the breast tissue and prevent the sagging of the breast to the front, over all giving a good shape to the breast. so practice yoga, walking, and have a workout on the shoulder muscles which will firm up the muscles in the chest. good luck

Since last 2 or 3 months I m suffering from stomach problem. Specially digesting problem. What should I do?

Since last 2 or 3 months I m suffering from stomach problem. Specially digesting problem. What should I do?
if you have occasional acidity, lifestyle changes can help: lose excess weight, eat smaller meals, and avoid foods that seem to trigger heartburn such as fried or fatty foods, chocolate, and peppermint. Avoiding alcohol and nicotine may help, too. If necessary, occasional acid reflux can be treated with over-the-counter medication. If you have frequent acidity and burning pain in stomach due to acidity then you may have h. Pylori infection for which I can prescribe a 14 day treatment plan which will eliminate it. Untreated infection causes ulcer in stomach and finally leads to cancer. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.
