Hi, your issues/ symptoms as you describe point towards some mineral/ vitamin deficiency unless there is some other issue that requires to be clinically examined/ investigated. I would advise you to consult a general physician in person who can discuss with you and advise tests suitably to see if you are deficient in something, especially need to check your calcium & vitamin d levels. At the same time, ensure that you have balanced diet and a streamlined lifestyle. Exercise/ walk daily in fresh air for about 30 minutes and relax/ de-stress regularly. Exposure to early morning sun rays for 5 to 10 minutes daily helps replenish the vitamin d levels. In case you are a student still, set realistic goals and give your best while being focussed on your present. Its extremely important that you relax/ de-stress intermittently so that you stay engaged and do not get fatigued. It is advisable to avoid oily and fried stuff. Rather, consume more of fresh fruits & vegetables and stay hydrated. Drink 8 - 10 glasses of water daily. Cheese, yogurt, fish, fortified orange juice, soybeans, whole grain cereals, leafy greens are a few food items that you can include in your menu. Hope this helps. You may still connect with me for a detailed discussion should you require. All the very best. Sincerely

General Physician,
After food poisoning its quite natural that there is aversion even towards your favourite delicacy. If there is no vomiting or diarrhea then to will take back to normal in 4 or 5 days. Have home made food alone since you feel better.

Ulcerative colitis This condition is usually well controlled with medical line of treatment. There may be flare ups, which may require more dosage of medicines or enema to control the symptoms. Suggest review of the medical records with a Gastroenterologist to make sure colonoscopy biopsies are confirmatory of ulcerative colitis. Some patients require surgery if medical line of treatment is not responding. The remedy is to regularly continue mesacol or medicines prescribed by a specialist. Take care.

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.

3 Ayurvedic Remedies For Gastritis!

3 Ayurvedic Remedies For Gastritis!

Your stomach is lined with a mucosal membrane known as the mucosa and due to a variety of factors, it may become inflamed. This inflammation may cause a lot of problems and complications which are grouped under gastritis.
Symptoms of gastritis

  1. Upper abdominal pain
  2. Hiccups
  3. Diarrhea
  4. Nausea
  5. Heartburn
  6. Constipation
  7. Reduction of appetite
  8. Blood in the stool amongst the others

Gastritis can be quite debilitating and limiting for the people affected by it.

The Ayurveda approach
Ayurveda is a holistic form of medicine which takes into account many factors rather than just the physical disposition and symptoms that strives to cure the patients of the illness in a well-rounded manner. To this effect, Ayurveda helps you treat this problem with multiple angles of attack such as herbal medications and special cleansing therapies among many others. Let’s take a look at some of the methods usually employed in various combinations among the patients.

  1. Changes in diet: Consuming any diet which has a lot of spicy and rich foods over prolonged periods may result in gastritis and other problems. If you already have gastritis, then certain other types of food also need to be excluded such as tea, coffee, sour foods, chilies and buffalo milk among others. These food groups are excluded as they may increase the acidity of the stomach which may cause an escalation of the problems. Some of the foods that may help with gastritis are grapes, pumpkins, bitter gourd, pomegranate, melons and cucumber, etc.
  2. Natural remedies: Some natural remedies that can be very effective in dealing with the symptoms of gastritis are mentioned below
    • Ajwain and rock salt have been an age old remedy in treating multiple gastrointestinal disorders and can be effective in this case as well.
    • Lemon juice is also very effective in treating symptoms or gastritis and also reducing inflammation.
    • Take amla, ginger, and licorice either in a raw form or as a dried option or mixed with other things such as milk or honey. These help in regulating and reducing the acidity within the stomach.
  3. Ayurvedic medications: There are many specialized Ayurvedic medications which can be used to treat gastritis such as:
    • Amalaki choorna
    • Avipattikara choorna
    • Sootashekhara rasa
    • Sukumara Ghrita
    • Dhatri Lauha

However, you should consult a specialist Ayurveda doctor as they can prescribe the correct medications for you after studying your specific symptoms.

Liver Transplant - Strange Reasons You Have To Go For It!

M. Ch., FEBS, MBBS
Liver Transplant Surgeon, Delhi
Liver Transplant - Strange Reasons You Have To Go For It!

Liver, being the largest gland present inside the body, weighs almost 3 pounds. It is a vital organ of the human body and performs critical functions which are required for the normal functioning of the body. The liver makes protein which is required for blood clotting. The liver also produces many other enzymes which are required in cellular pathways.

In many cases, due to chronic or acute illnesses, a portion of the liver gets injured or damaged. In these cases, liver transplantation or hepatic transplantation under immunosuppressive drugs is a potentially successful treatment which can be performed by surgeons under ideal conditions.

When is a liver transplant necessary?
Liver transplant is a procedure to replace a diseased or necrosed liver with either a whole or a part of a healthy liver from a donor. This may come from a living or deceased donor. The surgery is extremely complicated with an average duration of 10-12 hrs. Before transplantation, liver support therapy might be indicated. A liver transplant is always the last option, for any liver-damaging conditions including alcohol abuse, hepatitis, and cancer.

Any condition leading to acute liver failure requires a liver transplant, provided that the recipient does not have other conditions that will fail a successful transplant.
Other potential causes leading to a liver transplant

A patient is advised for a liver transplant procedure when the liver is damaged to a condition where a cure is not possible. The many potential reasons that would need a person to undergo liver transplant are:
Viral hepatitis which includes all types of hepatitis (A, B, C, D, E) which are blood Bourne or transmitted through oral or fractal route.

  1. Acute and subacute necrosis of liver
  2. Alcoholic fatty liver
  3. Alcoholic cirrhosis of liver
  4. Chronic hepatitis
  5. Cirrhosis of liver without mention of alcohol
  6. Biliary cirrhosis
  7. Cystic fibrosis
  8. Benign neoplasm of liver and biliary passages
  9. Neoplasm of unspecified nature in digestive system
  10. Glycogenesis
  11. Pure hypercholesterolemia
  12. Lipidoses
  13. Carcinoma of liver and biliary system
  14. Neoplasm of uncertain behavior in liver
  15. Disorders of bilirubin excretion
  16. Disorders of copper metabolism
  17. Congenital factor VIII disorder
  18. Congenital factor IX disorder
  19. Budd-Chiari syndrome
  20. Other chronic nonalcoholic liver disease
  21. Unspecified liver disease without mention of alcohol
  22. Other sequelae of chronic liver disease
  23. Other specified disorders of gallbladder
  24. Cholangitis, obstruction of bile duct
  25. Biliary atresia
  26. Perinatal jaundice due to hepatocellular damage
  27. Other specified perinatal disorders of digestive system
  28. Injury to liver
  29. Disorders of purine and pyrimidine metabolism
  30. Encephalopathy, unspecified
  31. Portal vein thrombosis
  32. Deficiencies of circulating enzymes

A liver transplant is suggested if other traditional treatments for liver disease aren’t enough to keep a person alive. Though waiting for a liver transplant is a long process, the surgery coordination happens quickly once you have a match. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.
