Is the bloating due to milk? if yes you have lactose intolerance and you would want to use alternative forms of calcium supplementation. If the bloating is not related to drinking milk and you have it after eating everything else then you can drink milk. Just lower junk food and spicy food. Lower your oil intake. Use oil which are rich in good fatty acids. Add more vegetables and eat mostly the seasonal fruits.

I have ulcer problem so what should I do?

Diploma In Dermatology And Venerology And Leprosy (DDVL), MBBS
Dermatologist,
Mouth ulcer (apthus ulcer) is mainly due to bad chemicals which are not cleared through our digestive system. By stool due to constipation, or other digestive problem, due to vitamins deficiency also. Or maybe by some infection, cancer also causes mouth ulcers. If you want advice please consult.

Detected with 3.7 mm stone in gallbladder , will it get dissolved automatically or any treatment or medicine required ?

Detected with 3.7 mm stone in gallbladder , will it get dissolved automatically or any treatment or medicine required ?
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. 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.

Use parsley and jeera seeds while cooking vegetables. Please make it a point that too bitter, too sour, salty, hot, pungent, dry and burning foods are to be avoided as such foods cause distress, misery and disease. Thus deep frying foods or foods taking lot of oil as in gravy vegetables, salty foods, spicy foods, long preserved, frozen foods, junk foods like pizzas burgers chips are to be avoided. Drink two glasses of warm water on empty stomach every morning about 30 minutes before breakfast. Try it! This works amazingly! In addition, walk fast for 30 minutes every day or engage in some service every day. Please also do meditation regularly and sincerely which has been scientifically proved for overall health.

Check with the biopsy report they had taken. If biopsy is normal. Then it is well and good. Avoid starvation. Avoid spicy and junk food. Avoid lying down immediately after your meals. Take 20-30min after you ate to get to bed. Take lot of milk, plenty of water, fruits like pomogranette banana apple. Avoid lemon orange grapes. Avoid alcohol, smoking, and last but not least stress. Follow this for one month. You will feel much better.

Hello lybrate-user. Nice of you to be so honest regarding your complains. Redness of the eyes has multiple causes associated with it. To enumerate a few common causes: (1) allergy of the eye. It is usually caused by improper eye hygiene. There is a tendency to rub the eyes with fingers, handkerchief, cloth, etc. This is not a good habit because it tends to transmit lots of virus, bacteria and dust into the eye. Allergy usually presents with symptoms of watering (clear water), redness and itching of the eye. (2) infectious conjunctivitis: this is usually associated with white-yellowish discharge. If so, it would be a good idea to go and show to an eye specialist in person. (3) foreign body lodged in the eye. This is more commonly associated with people who drive 2 wheeler vehicles without protection. It occurs more commonly in one eye. Foreign bodies that commonly get lodged are eyelashes, insect wings, small insects, dust particles, iron particles (more common with people working in the iron industry) the solution for a foreign body lodged in the eye would be better provided by an eye specialist at the clinic. (4) raised intraocular pressure: this is a condition known as glaucoma. It is not so common as the previous mentioned conditions. There is usually associated pain in the eyes. It is commonly bilateral (occurs in both eyes). There is usually a positive family history of glaucoma associated in a majority of the cases. (5) inflammation of the coats of the eyeball. This is known as" uveitis" it is also a relatively less common condition. There is associated pain. It would require a thorough eye checkup including the retina-thus a good idea would be to visit the eye specialist in person. From the symptoms described by you, it seems more likely to be a case of allergy. Maintaining the precautions and hygiene that I mentioned should probably work well for you. Regarding farts, even if you have a healthy diet, it is possible that you may experience gas problem. This may be avoidable by not taking certain food stuff in combination. Avoid fruits on a full stomach. Likewise, you could look up on the net regarding the combinations to avoid. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care,
