I am 40 yrs old and i always have slight constipation even when I take standard diet and for last one year. I have started facing slight burnt/congestion feeling under my throat after my meals. Also I feel the tendency to pass the gas few times during the day. Request you to advise how to avoid these 3 problems, which all are related to my digestive system!

CONSTIPATION:is due to an incorrect lifestyle and irregular eating patterns, not taking enough fluids,sedentary lifestyle.Foods that are heavy and difficult to digest, as well as oily, spicy, fried, and junk foods are the culprits. Eating food in a disturbed atmosphere or in front of the television and being awake late at night all lead to bowel disturbance. Psychological factors like stress, anxiety, fear, jealousy, and sorrow also play an important role. DIET & LIFESTYLE ADVICE: Increase intake of fiber, especially fruits and cooked vegetables. An Apple or Pineapple/Pomegranate each day is helpful. Drink 7-8 glasses of lukewarm water each day. Take daily morning and evening walks for at least 20-30 minutes each. Eat whole grains /nuts/sprouts/daliya and Muesli in breakfast Avoid removing bran from the flour because it clears the intestines Avoid refined foods like white flour, bread, pasta, pizza, white rice,or high protein foods like cheese,meat and cold foods like ice cream or chilled drinks Take meals in a relaxed and calm atmosphere. The food should be warm and freshly -prepared, as cold food slows the digestive power. Take 30 ml/6 tsp of syp Duphalac thrice daily after meals with lukewarm water. Soak 3-4 dried figs after washing them overnight in water. Eat them first thing in the morning,

I am having a snoring problem kindly give me a solution to get rid of it.

MS - ENT
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist,
It may be due to overweight, nasal blockage, low soft palate or enlarged tonsils. So for proper diagnosis you are requested to send photos of nose and throat.Mostly people having snoring, have also sleep apnea, so you must go for a test called sleep study, by which we can diagnose a disease called sleep apnea. Send me the report of sleep study, so I can guide you further.

What is the cause of development of bone in nose, growth of bone in nose. Does it need surgery or not.

MCh - Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Hyderabad
Bone growth is normal where ever there is a bone. Sometimes there is an overgrowth during the growth phase over surrounding normal structures giving rise to deviation or hump or a blockage of a opening totally or partially. This can be corrected by a plastic surgical procedure called rhinoplasty.

Dear lybrate user, please visit a physician, he/she would examine your ears and advise treatment correctly as its difficult to point out to the exact cause without examining. Common associated conditions may be impacted wax, middle ear infection, damage to ear membrane. Meanwhile, avoid using any object (not even ear bud) to clean your ears.

5 Effective Natural Cures for a Sore Throat
5 Most Useful Natural Cures for a Sore Throat

Inflammation of the pharynx, the tube that connects back of the mouth to the esophagus results in Sore Throat. Caused by bacterial, viral or fungal infections, allergies or irritants like smoke, pollution or dry air, or sometimes even acid reflux from the stomach via the esophagus, sore throat can be very uncomfortable and painful. If accompanied by fever or swollen tonsils causing blockage of the throat, doctor’s intervention is required, but otherwise you can try these natural remedies to get rid of that downright miserable feeling of Sore Throat:

1. Pain Relief Potion: Take a glass of warm water and add a teaspoon each of lime juice, apple cider vinegar and honey. Sip it slowly few times a day to get relief from pain.

2. Spicy mix for Total Relief: Drink this spicy tea everyday for a week and get rid of Sore Throat. Add 2 pinch each of cinnamon & black pepper powder to a glass of warm water and drink it. The black pepper relieves pain while cinnamon reduces the production of mucus & eases breathing.

3. Potent pomegranate: Pomegranates can help to reduce the swelling in your throat since they contain astringents that help in contracting tissues. Besides they have anti oxidants that fight infection. Just peel a pomegranate and boil its rind in two glasses of water for 15-20 minutes. Drink this tea to get relief.

4. Beneficial Licorice Root: Licorice has anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties that help to reduce irritation and swelling of the throat. Take a one inch piece of licorice root and boil in 1 cup of water till reduced to half. Use it to gargle, do it 1-2 times a day to get fast relief.
Salt in warm water gargles are also an all time remedy for Sore throat. You can alternate with Licorice gargles, do it once or twice to ease pain.

5. Power of Turmeric: Add ½ tsp of Turmeric powder to a teaspoon of honey and make a paste. Lick it completely before sleeping but make sure not to drink water after that. You will get rid of your sore throat within three days.

I am in pvt job stress full day, i take 180 ml alcohol daily, problem is I snore a lot and loud. Pl guide how can I get rid of this habit on snoring.

MD - Psychiatry

Alcohol itself changes muscle tone and induces snoring, and on long term can produce severe damage to almost all the organs in the body. Stop alcohol immediately, if needed, seek a psychiatrist help to stop, to treat withdrawal.

My son is 8 years old, he has enlarge nasal polyps. What to do for treatment. And how can be cure permanently. It block his nose during respiration.

Diploma in Otorhinolaryngology (DLO), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Guwahati
Hello and most welcome to lybrate, regarding your concern about your son having polyp, I would like to say that generally polyps with severe clinical symptoms like breathing problems, pressure symptoms with facial deformity, we should ideally go for surgery, but in small polyps I usually try with steroids like long course mometasone spray. Regarding your son, as he has breathing difficulty, first you have to get a ct pns done and he might need surgery. I sincerely wish him an early recovery and a healthy life ahead.

I snore very loudly in my sleep, causing a great disturbance to my family, is there a cure for this.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Exercise your nasal and neck muscles. Keep the nasal mucosa moist. Put humidifiers in your room so that sinuses get sufficient moisture. Prevent nasal phlegm formation. Soft palate exercises also helps. Homeopathy is good for sinusitis and adenoids. Helpd in keeping good oral health. Prevents mouth breathing.

Dear Doctor, My mother (60yrs) was recently started pain in the nose. With the MRI scan dr said it is Adenoid Hypertrophy. And they gave few medicines and a nasal spray. Now its increasing the pain. What is the adenoid hypertrophy? If it is the case, will it cause pain? What is the proper treatment?

MS - ENT
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Aurangabad
Hello Santosh , Thank you for your question. Adenoid is a lymphoid tissue mass in the posterior part of our nose called nasopharynx. They are most active in young children between the age of 3 to 7 years. They usually get atrophied in adults. It is very rare to see enlarged adenoids in adults and old age individuals. When they are enlarged they will cause nasal obstruction , snoring , nasal discharge , ear blockage , facial pain ( not pain in the nose ). I suggest a nasal endoscopy to evaluate the cause of the pain in the nose and also a second ENT physicians opinion if possible.

My mom snores a lot n very loudly. please do help what to do. Anyone is unable to sleep with her.

BAMS
Ayurveda, Bangalore
Hi, please follow these tips to stop snoring: - reduce your weight if you are obese. - perform pranayama (breathing exercises) everyday. - quit smoking which irritates the mucosal layer of the nose and throat and causes blockage and results in snoring. - quit alcohol and sedatives which relax the throat muscles and results in snoring. - sleep on sides instead on back. - elevate the head by using a thick pillow which eases the breathing. - clear the nose before going to bed. - establish regular sleep pattern. - keep the bedroom air moist by using humidifier; as dry air irritates the mucosal membrane in the nose and throat. - perform throat exercises like repeating the vowels a, e, i, o, you loudly for 2-3 mins few times a day or keeping the tongue behind the teeth and moving it backwards - 3-4 times a day. - anti snoring appliances can also be used.
