Some causes of constipation include: Antacid medicines containing calcium or aluminum Changes in your usual diet or activities Colon cancer Eating a lot of dairy products. Eating disorders Irritable bowel syndrome Neurological conditions such as Parkinson's disease or multiple sclerosis Not being active Not enough water or fiber in your diet Overuse of laxatives (Over time, this weakens the bowel muscles) Pregnancy Problems with the nerves and muscles in the digestive system Resisting the urge to have a bowel movement, which some people do because of hemorrhoids Some medications (especially strong pain drugs such as narcotics, antidepressants, or iron pills) Stress Under active thyroid (hypothyroidism) Management: Try these steps for your constipation problem: Drink two to four extra glasses of water a day (unless your doctor told you to limit fluids for another health reason). Try warm liquids, especially in the morning. Add fruits and vegetables to your diet. Eat prunes and bran cereal. Isabgol, also known as "psyllium husk," is a common health supplement used to treat constipation, other digestive problems, and a few non-digestive problems. It contains 70 percent soluble fiber and, as a result, acts as a bulk-forming laxative. The effectiveness of isabgol largely depends on your individual health needs and the manner in which you take it.Usually, you will need to take 1 to 2 tsp (5 to 10 ml) of isabgol with 1 cup of water (240 ml) or fluid daily at night until your constipation passes. The exact dosage may vary depending on age, medical condition, and response to treatment, however. Eat a well-balanced diet with plenty of fiber. Good sources of fiber are fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole-grain bread and cereal (especially bran). Drink 1 1/2 to 2 quarts of water and other fluids a day (unless your doctor has you on a fluid-restricted diet). Fiber and water work together to keep you regular. Avoid caffeine. It can be dehydrating. Check on milk. Some people may need to avoid it because dairy products may be constipating for them. Exercise regularly. Go to the bathroom when you feel the urge. Avoid taking unnecessary stress. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Biocombination-4/ thrice daily for 4 weeks.

Hello Lybrate User, Take homeopathic treatment for intestinal gaseous distention. To get away from intestinal gaseous problem follow this tips that will help you to get rid from your problem - * Drink before meals. If you drink liquids with your meals, you lose stomach acids and can’t break down food as well. Try drinking about 30 minutes before a meal to help your stomach digest better. * Eat and drink slowly. When you eat or drink fast, you can swallow a lot of air, which can cause gas. Slow down when you eat. * Don't fill up on air. Habits like smoking, chewing gum, and drinking through a straw may cause your stomach to fill with air, leading to gas. * Avoid artificial sweeteners. Sorbitol and related sugar alcohols used in many sugar-free versions of foods can also aggravate gas. * Beans are a great source of protein and other fiber, so it can be good for some people. Soaking and/or overcooking beans may help reduce gas formation. If her excessive gas is persistent or severe, consult your primary health care provider. Take care.

Hi, Inadequate sleep, untimely intake of food, intake of very hot and spicy food, sour or fermented food, mental worries and tensions, excessive usage of pain killers and antibiotics are all causes of acidity which either increases the acid production or irritate the gastric mucosa resulting in hyperacidity causing pain and bloating of the stomach. Try these home remedies: - Drink kheer prepared out of saboo. - Drink a glass of pumpkin juice everyday in the morning on empty stomach. - Take 1tsf of jeera powder mixed with jaggery twice daily. or poppy seeds which keeps the stomach cool. – Take a bowl of curds mixed with sugar or a glass of lassi everyday which helps to neutralise the acid.

I was suffering mouth ulcer from last 2 yr. Every 2month it come. I take good diet n 3-4 liter water but again and again it's happening.

MBBS, cc USG
General Physician, Gurgaon
Hello, Kindly follow advises given below 1.Gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water 2.You can also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located 3.To prevent infection, rinse your mouth 4.Honey helps retain moisture and prevent dehydration. It also helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth Dab a little honey onto the mouth ulcer or mix in a little turmeric to make a paste that can be applied on the affected area. 5. Tulsi: Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster 6.Dry coconut, coconut oil and coconut water are three products of the coconut tree that are very useful in treating mouth ulcers. Drinking tender coconut water helps to cool the body. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain 7. you could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Consult Physician for further management as you are having these problem for long

The gas problem you have could be secondary to acid peptic disease. Taking antacid like Tab nexpro-rd one in the morning before breakfast for a week would help. Also avoid spicy foods. Take food at regular timings and void junk foods. Stress also is one of the contributor to such acid related problems. Find a way like meditation or yoga to get de-stressed regularly. Wish you good health. Dreams are normal. And dreams need to be understood and dealt with: - When dreams are associated with distress; - When it becomes excessive and frequent; - When there is preoccupation with dreams (as you mentioned that you cried before sleep; - When dream disrupts sleep frequently; - When dream associated with intense anxiety or night mare or night terror, etc. Usually dreams that are horrific or associated with aggression / violence - it may be a reflection of your underlying suppressed / repressed anger towards someone who is important / close to you. try to visit a good psychiatrist for better correlation and advice

You might be suffering from gastritis. Have small frequent meals at 2- 3 hrs intervals instead of few large ones. Eat at correct time. Breakfast before 10 am, lunch before 3 pm, dinner before 10 pm & 3 small snacks in between- ex: buttermilk, lassi, coconut water, ghugni, besan chila, dhokla, steamed chicken momo, nuts. Exercise daily for at least 30 mins pref early morning. Drink plenty of water. Avoid spicy, fried, raw foods.
