बदहजमी की तमाम वजहें हो सकती हैं। मसलन भूख से ज्यादा खाना, खाने को सही तरीके से नहीं चबाना, नींद पूरी न होना, खाना सही तरह से पका न होना या फिर एक्सरसाइज न करना। इसके अलावा तेज मसालेदार भोजन और जीवनशैली में बदलाव के कारण भी पाचन की समस्या पैदा हो सकती है।

बदहजमी होने पर इन घरेलू नुस्खों को आजमाएं :

एक चम्मच अजवाइन के साथ नमक मिलाकर खाने से बदहजमी से तुरंत छुटकारा मिलता है।

एक गिलास पानी में पुदीने के रस की दो-तीन बूंदें डालकर हर तीन-चार घंटे के अंतराल पर पीएं।

एक गिलास गुनगुने पानी में एक चम्मच नींबू, अदरक का रस और दो छोटे चम्मच शहद भी मिला लें। इसे पीने से पाचन संबंधी परेशानी दूर होगी।

अगर एसिडिटी से परेशान हैं, तो एक गिलास पानी में नींबू निचोड़कर पीएं।

अगर चाय पीना नहीं छोड़ सकते, तो हर्बल टी का प्रयोग करना शुरू कर दें।

कॉफी, अल्कोहल और धूम्रपान से बचें। इनसे भी पाचन खराब होने की आशंका होती है।

अधिक टाइट कपड़े और जींस न पहनें।

डिनर सोने से कम से कम दो-तीन घंटे पहले कर लें।

एक चम्मच धनिए के भुने हुए बीज को एक गिलास छाछ में मिलाकर पीएं।

खाने के बाद एक चम्मच सौंफ अवश्य चबाएं।

अगर आपके मुंह का जायका खराब हो रहा है तो अदरक के टुकड़े में काला नमक लगाकर खाएं।

अपने भोजन में रेशेदार फल-सब्जियों को शामिल करें। मैदा से बनी चीजों का सेवन न करें।

भोजन हमेशा समय पर करें.

प्रतिदिन सुबह देसी शहद में निम्बू रस मिलाकर चाट लें.

हींग, लहसुन, चद गुप्पा ये तीनो बूटियाँ पीसकर गोली बनाकर छाँव में सुखा लें, व् प्रतिदिन एक गोली खाएं.

भोजन के समय सादे पानी के बजाये अजवायन का उबला पानी प्रयोग करें.

लहसुन, जीरा १० ग्राम घी में भुनकर भोजन से पहले खाएं.

सौंठ पावडर शहद ये गर्म पानी से खाएं.

लौंग का उबला पानी रोजाना पियें.

जीरा, सौंफ, अजवायन इनको सुखाकर पावडर बना लें,शहद के साथ भोजन से पहले प्रयोग करें.

Dear lybrate user with the limited amount of information provided it appears that you are having gastritis. The first and foremost treatment of which is life style modification like regular exercise, diet modification as advised and liberal fluid intake. Try having small frequent meals, avoid tea/coffee/carbonated drinks, avoid chilli, stop smoking and consuming alcohol if you do. Hope this solves your query. Try with these life style measures first. If any concern then feel free to contact we will then discuss and start you on medication if needed as every one has a different requirement of medicine.

Dear sir, I reside in electronic city, bangalore. My mother is 69 years old and has complains of acidity. She also complains thrubbing pain in her knees in the night. I would request a guidance for her treatment.

She would probably have osteoarthritis of knees at her age, the question is how severe. We need x rays of both knees ap and lateral views for the same. Also get vitamin d levels and uric acid levels. Painkiller wise we can' t give her anything strong because of her acidity, we can however give her some medications to improve the lubrication of the joint or some injections into the joint for the same. The above however are only effective if her arthritis is mild to moderate, if it is severe she will need a knee replacement.

Hi if you have localized back pain with - no neurological symptoms like numbness, paresthesia, weakness in limbs etc, my advice is: - intensive physical therapy initially under supervision of a physiotherapist and then at home. - avoid forward bending, lifting heavy weights etc - take an analgesic like diclofenac or something which suits your body for 5-7 days - take muscle relaxant for same time as analgesic to relieve muscle spasm - ice packs at the site of pain, muscle spasm - local analgesic spray can be used but no massage is required let me know in a week time how you are feeling. I will actually ask you to get x ray of involved region of spine (ap & lateral) and send reports across to me so that I can advise further in a better manner. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Suitable fluids to drink when you have diarrhoea include oral rehydration fluids, water, clear soups and broths and diluted juices. If you have nausea, try taking small sips of fluid often. Dehydration may be treated with oral fluids or, if severe, with intravenous fluids.

To avoid acidity one need to have food at regular timings at 3-4 hrs interval. Also you should avoid having food items like deep fried, tomato based, non-veg, whole pulses at night. Don't immediately lie down after having food. Maintain atleast one hour gap. Wear comfortable clothing around the waist not too tight. Need your height and weight to know how much underweight you are and then guide accordingly.
