Over thinking is linked to gastric troubles. Thus you need to manage your thoughts and stop over thinking and analysing situations endlessly. Knowing what is within your control and what is outside your control can help you to reduce this. Acting on your thoughts rather than remaining at thinking level will help contain anxiety and get you some results. Know your swot (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) will help you to be more action oriented and getting results rather than sit and worry. This will help you to gain confidence and improve your self esteem. 3. Eat smaller and lighter meals. Don't sleep after meals. Exercise everyday to improve your digestion and your confidence. 4. Make friends and be a social person. Laughing and humour help to see life in a lighter vain. Emotional support of friends, relatives and colleges can help you pull through tough life situations. If these tips are not enough to make a change then you can see a counsellor for a personalised session.

There is a strong component of stress and anxiety in acid reflux. Its a vicious circle, you get stressed and anxious because of it and then it creates acid. Work on it, take a help if you need. You can also undergo a hypnotherapy session in your city. It is mighty effective.

Common Signs of Diarrhea

Diarrhea is a very common condition, which is associated with the passage of the ingested fluids and foods through your colon more frequently than usual or in huge amounts. This condition is mostly caused by the action of viruses, parasites, bacteria, medications like antibiotics, certain digestive disorders, abdominal surgery, lactose intolerance, and consumption of an excessive amount of alcohol etc. Here are some of the common symptoms, which indicate that you are suffering from diarrhea:

Passing watery and loose stools
Frequent bowel movements
Pain or cramps in the abdomen
Feeling of nausea
Vomiting
Bloating in the stomach

If you are suffering from a more serious form of diarrhea, you might also experience symptoms like:

Presence of mucus, blood and traces of undigested food in your stool
Fever

Diarrhea mostly gets cured even without consuming any medicines within a couple of days. However, you need to consult a doctor and get proper treatment for diarrhea in the following cases:

If you are continuously experiencing the condition for more than two days
Your stools contain blood or are black
Severe pain in the rectum or abdomen is bothering you
You experience signs of dehydration like excessive thirst, weakness, dizziness, dry mouth, urine of dark color or reduced frequency and amount of urination
Your body temperature exceeds 102 F (39 C)

For pimples it's important to wash your face twice daily to remove impurities, dead skin cells, and extra oil from your skin's surface, avoid touching your face or propping your cheek or chin on your hands. Not only can you spread bacteria, you can also irritate the already inflamed facial skin. Never pick or pop pimples with your fingers, as it can lead to infection and scarring. A dietary therapy with the right medications for pimples can also help a lot. Kojic acid (a natural skin lightener derived from mushroom extract), arbutin (also called bearberry extract), and vitamin c (ascorbic acid) are great alternative ingredients to lighten scars left by acne. Don't use vitamin e on scars. You may have heard that applying vitamin e to a scar will help it heal faster. But according to a study, applying the nutrient directly onto a scar can actually hinder its healing. In the study, vitamin e either had no effect or made matters worse for 90% of the patients, and 33% who put vitamin e on the skin developed a contact dermatitis. I am a registered dietitian and a doctor who will help you in your skin problems reply back for private consultation.

Food to avoid in Constiption 1.Dairy food such as whole milk, butter, cheese or ice cream have a very high fat content without a great deal of fiber. 2. Foods that are very high in sugar and fat tend to be low in fluids and fiber, which will make it much easier for you to become constipated. Soft drinks, cakes, pastries, crackers, cookies and candy are known to contribute to digestion problems. 3. Fast food causes a variety of health problems, including heart disease or constipation. Foods such as corn chips, pizzas, fries, pasta, frozen dinners and hamburgers are highly processed which causes them to lose their natural fiber content 4. You should include meat in your diet because this is a good source of protein, but high amounts of animal protein is harder for your body to digest than plant proteins. Consuming too much meat, particularly red meat can replace the fiber-rich foods in your diet, limiting your ability to get the fiber you need to keep your digestive system functioning the way it should. 5. Having too much iron in the body is known to cause constipation. Patients, especially men, should check their multivitamins to see how much iron they contain. When you experience constipation, cut back on foods right in iron 6. Alcoholic beverages can cause constipation. Limit your alcohol intake to one drink for women and two drinks for men per day. Foods that contain white flour, white rice, white sugar, baking powder, baking soda or yeasted bread may also cause constipation. Foods To avoid in DIARRHOEA 1 All fried foods and greasy foods. 2.Avoid fruits and vegetables that can cause gas, such as broccoli, peppers, beans, peas, berries, prunes, chickpeas, green leafy vegetables, and corn. 3.Avoid caffeine, alcohol, and carbonated drinks. 4.Limit or cut out milk and other dairy products if they are making your diarrhea worse or causing gas and bloating.

In addition to a loss of appetite, it is common to experience nausea and vomiting after a traumatic injury. If these feelings are present, try these suggestions: Eat dry food in the morning, such as toast or crackers. Avoid taking medications on an empty stomach unless instructed to by your doctor/pharmacist/nurse. Avoid hot foods or foods with significant smells/odors if you are sensitive to the smell of foods. Eat smaller, frequent meals and snacks every 2-3 hours. Sit up for at least 30 minutes after eating. Eat slowly. Take sips of cold clear drinks like water, fruit juice, or sports drinks throughout the day. Stay on top of your bowel program to avoid constipation, which can worsen nausea. Avoid gas-forming foods like onions, cabbage, broccoli or dried beans.

Hello doctor, I have recently developed fissures. When I try to pass stool, it's painful and burning, like a tear the first few seconds. I don't see blood as it is clearly, but there is some of it for sure in the stool. After I'm done, there's discomfort for a while and during nights there's some itching. This has been going on for the last 45 days and it's not getting any better. Please let me know what to do. Thanks.
