Hello, being a homoeopath, I can give you some advise on thi. Homoeopathy has solution to this problem, but the cure depends upon the size of the stone/s. If there is single large stone or multiple large stone then nothing can be done except surgery. But if the stone is single or multiple and small in size then homoeopathy alone will is the solution. Not only this, the homoeopathic medicines also removes the tendency of stone-formation again and again, improves your immunity without any side-effects! keep in mind, during with this treatment also follow the diet and the management part as per your physician which is very important part.

Differences Between Diarrhea And Dysentery

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Differences Between Diarrhea And Dysentery

Diarrhea is a condition that involves the frequent passing of loose or watery stools while dysentery is an intestinal inflammation, especially in the colon, that can lead to severe diarrhea with mucus or blood in the feces.


The major differences between diarrhea and dysentery are as follows:
S. N.
Diarrhea
Dysentery
1.
Diarrhea is presented as watery stool with no blood and mucus. Dysentery is presented as a mucoid stool that may be accompanied by blood.
2.
The patient may or may not be accompanied by cramps or a pain. The patient usually complains of cramps and pain in the lower abdominal area.
3.
Fever is less common in diarrhea. Fever is more common in dysentery.
4.
Diarrhea is a disease that affects the small bowel. Dysentery is a disease that affects the colon.
5.
Diarrheal infection is located and targets only intestinal lumen and upper epithelial cells. Dysentery not only upper epithelial cells are targeted but colon ulceration also results.
6.
There is no cell death in diarrhea and the infection is only caused because of the release of some toxins by the infecting agent. When a person gets dysentery, the upper epithelial cells are attacked and destroyed by the pathogen or disease causing agent.
7.
The antimicrobial that are used to treat diarrhea do not eradicate the toxin left behind. Treatment for dysentery can eradicate the pathogen that is causing the infection and stop the inflammation.
8.
The effects of diarrhea are not that serious, apart from a risk of dehydration. Dysentery can cause a lot of complications, if left untreated.
9.
Diarrhea is mostly viral. E. Coli can also cause watery diarrhea. Dysentery is mostly bacterial. E coli, shigella, and salmonella are the most common causative organisms
10.
Diarrhea does not need antibiotics. Oral rehydration solutions or intravenous fluid therapy may be used. Dysentery almost always requires antibiotic treatment. Intravenous antibiotics may be needed in severely ill children.

Hello laxcity at oesophagogastric junction allows undigested food substances to get entry from stomach to oesophagus. This is also called as reflux. Panchakarma procedure with virechana helps a lot in such condition. Conservative mangemnt can be done with ayurvedic medicines. If interested please contact.

My mom has got gall stones of 9x4mm. Some doctors advice me to remove my gall bladder but some doctors say that you don't need to worry. She is not having any symptoms so far. Which one should I go for?

In the face of diabetes she should not wait and take a risk of developing infection in the gallbladder. My advice is she should get her gallbladder removed. It can be cone by laparoscopic surgery.

I found that oil is coming out of my butt while farting and I am a vegetarian so why it's happening?

It must be mucus. Mucus is normally present in our colon. But sometimes there is excess of mucus formation. There are many reasons for it. One of the reasons is dietary. Avoid spicy, fried and junk food. Take plenty of water and fruits daily. Add some fibre like isafgole to your diet. I hope it should work for you. Thanks.

Exercis and diet control is only the way to reduce weight. Avoid outside spicy and fried food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy done. Tab nexpro-l 1 tab empty stomach. Consult doctor.
