Hi, Blood in motions is seen in piles, fissures, ulcerative colitis, colon cancer, etc. For diagnostic purpose, do a colonoscopy and consult a general surgeon for further management. Avoid hot and spicy food. Take some laxatives if you have constipation. Drink plenty of fluids and consume high fiber diet. Get treated at the earliest, otherwise, you will suffer from severe anaemia due to heavy blood loss. Take cap. M-Ceaz 1 cap 3 times a day to arrest the bleed.

Dear user probably you are developing central obesity all you need is to workout and have only 3 full meals a day and nothing in between. In a sense you need to take your full normal meal three times a day and do not consume a bit even any snacks apart from these this you need to follow for a month and also avoid cold drinks even cold water drinking.

Hello I am 52 years old had a stone in my gall bladder. Is there any medicine to relive this problem.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Delhi
Yes, it can be removed if its silent does not mean it not causes any problem. It can be cured but not only with homeopathic medicines, 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 via motion passage. 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 gall stones is removing it naturally, not just remove gall stones from gall bladder but also remove the cause of gall stones.

Some amount of mucus in the stool is normal; however, significant amounts of mucus and mucus accompanied by diarrhea, pain or blood may signify an intestinal condition such as infection or inflammation. Increased amounts of mucus in the stool can also occur with cancers of the colon or rectum or with bowel obstruction. Since your stool is blackish, I would suggest you to get yourself evaluated by a gastroenterologist.

He's having anal fissure since past many months. Taking laxative. But no relief. Anus passage became narrow .pl help. Feeling discomfort becoz of it. Allergic rhinitis has become chronic pl help.

MD - Medicine, DM - Gastroenterology
Gastroenterologist, Delhi
Anal fissure generally respond well to treatment like laxatives, sitting in warm water, local ointment to relax the anal sphincters. If anal fissure persists then surgery is needed. However before surgery your doctor needs to see type of anal fissure as multiple fissure are associated with other diseases which are to be excluded.

Vaccinations are Not Only for Kids

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
General Physician, Delhi
Vaccinations are Not Only for Kids

Dear readers
When was the last time you got vaccinated. 
Probably when you were a kid. Or after an injury you might have got a tetanus shot. 
However with evolving medicine vaccinations in adults have a major role to play. 
Who should take what? 
Well that depends on what other diseases you have like diabetes or respiratory conditions or kidney disease or liver disease etc. 
However routine adult vaccinations that almost any adult should take are
1. Seasonal influenza vaccine or flu shot. This saves you against swine flu and 2 other common influenza virus strains. 
Frequency- once a year
2. Typhoid vaccine - it has been around for some time. But there is a newer version. Which has much more effectiveness in preventing typhoid. 
Frequency-once in 3 yrs
3. Pneumococcal vaccine- the newer vaccine prevents you against multiple strains of pneumococci and as the name suggests it will prevent you from severe pneumonia. 
Frequency-once in a life time. 
4. Hepatitis b- if you have not taken it already then this the time to take. Prevents against hepatitis b. If hepatitis b occurs it can cause chronic liver disease and even liver cancer. The disease can even be spread by sexual routes or contaminated blood transfer. It is about thousand times more easily spread than compared to HIV. 
Frequency - 0, 1, 6 months. Booster dose after 10 yrs. 
In conclusion as we all know-how prevention is better than cure. 
Upcoming vaccine-dengue vaccine, very eagerly awaited.
