By pylori I believe you want to ask about H. pylori. It is a bacteria which harbours in 50% of people. Usually without any symptoms. In less than 20% cases it results in ulcers, rarely it is a cause of cancer. If patient has some complaints and h. pylori is detected on endoscopy only then treatment is given . Antacids with anti biotics are needed to eliminate it.

Dear lybrate user, for gastric problems. Take green leafy vegetables which are easy to digest. Avoid fast food, junk food, oily food, spicy food, rice, potato, etc which are heavy to digest. Drink more water 3 litres per day. Walk for an hour 5 days in a week. Regular yogasan /pranayama/deep breathing exercise can sure help you. Pavanmuktasana, bhujangasana can help you. Take enough sleep 6 to 8 hours. Manage the stress and anger. Take enough rest. For vitamin d sunlight is the natural and best source. Take morning light sunlight it can help you. For more details consult me.

Dear Lybrate User, *Buttermilk is a wonder remedy when it comes to treating indigestion and gas. It is easier to digest than milk and contains more lactic acid. Buttermilk is already recommended to keep yourself cool in harsh summers and its digestive benefits just give you another reason to drink up a glass of buttermilk **Avoid more spicy, maida related, dry, junk foods.

This condition is known as GERD - gastro-oesophageal reflux disease. In this condition there is distension of your stomach-which leads to regurgitation of food inside the food pipe that is the oesophagus. You have to take care of this condition very properly otherwise in later stages it can lead to serious problems in your food pipe. Besides medicines The important things to take care are - not overfilling your stomach with too much food, not taking too much water with your food, not lying down immediately after taking food.

To remain healthy and fit, you should follow 3 steps in your life 1. Balanced diet 2. Early morning brisk morning walk for 30 minutes and 10 minutes evening walk after dinner 3. Drink 6-8 glasse of water daily. As 60% of our body is made of water, it acts as a carrier of essential nutrients inside our body. Loosing as little as 5% of body's weight as water can cause headache, fatigue and lower your muscle strength. To stay healthy, an adult should drink at least 8 glasses of water everyday. Balanced diet= 60% carbohydrates + 20% fats + 20% proteins 1. Carbohydrates: our main source of energy. Stored in liver and muscles. Carbohydrates are used the most by our body duringexercise. Hence, it is important for people who exercise regularly to consume a diet rich in carbohydrates. (a) instant/rapid carbohydrates energy sources: banana, milk, sweets, sugarcane juice. (b) slow carbohydrates energy sources: beans, bread, cereals, potato, pulses, rice. 2. Proteins: essential for growth, repair of muscle, skin, hair and body tissues. Protein deficiency leads to low immunity, hairfall, feeling of tiredness. Proteins are not stored in our body as any excess protein is converted to energy or fat. Hence, a person requires protein intake every day. When the body does not get enough carbohydrates to fuel itself, it falls back on protein bank. That is why people who follow starvation diets or go on fasting lose muscle tissue. (a) major protein sources: egg white (white portion), milk, soybeans/soymilk, fish, cheese, tofu. (b) other protein sources: beans with wheat, nuts, curd, yogurt (dahi). 3. Fats: required and healthy when taken in small amounts. Excess fat leads to weight gain, increase in bad cholesterol (ldl) and heartproblems (a) major fats sources: egg yolk (yellow portion), avocados, whole milk, butter, cheese, nuts. (b) other fats sources: corn, vegetable/olive oil, biscuits, flaxseeds (san beej). 4. Vitamins and minerals: critical for normal functioning of organs and processes within our body. They do not provide energy directly but work behind the scenes to break down food into energy. 5. Fiber: it helps retain water and in making our stools softer to avoid constipation. Intake should be 25 to 35 grams a day. 6. Calories: a measure of how much energy food or drink contains. On an average, a man needs around 2, 000 calories a day and a woman 1700 calories a day to maintain his weight and good health. Number varies by person depending upon weight, age and how active the lifestyle is. 7. Guideline: each day have 3 main meals, 2 snacks, 5 pieces of fruit and at least 1 glass of milk. 4. Bramari pranayam or bee breath 1. Close your eyes. Focus on your breathing. 2. Place your thumbs in your ears, your index fingers above your eyebrows, and your remaining along the sides of your nose. Keep each pinky finger near a nostril. 3. Breath in deeply through the nose. First, feel the diaphragm move down, allowing the lungs to expand and forcing the abdomen out; then feel your chest expand with your collar bones rising last. 4. Use your pinkies to partially close each nostril. Keep your lungs filled. 5. Breathe out through the nose while humming. Note that the humming sound should originate in your throat, not as a result of your partially-blocked nostrils. 6. Repeat twenty times. Starting from 5 times in nut-shell, think good, eat good, sleep good andby adopting these 3 point in your life you will remain fit as ever.

Sir, whenever I eat any dry food, I suffer from endless burping for 5 to 6 hour. Few days earlier I had consulted gastric care doctor, he performed two tests 1st was endoscopy and 2nd was HRM test. 1st test results were normal but in 2nd test weak or ineffective peristalsis were found. Doctor said that there is no cure for strengthening peristalsis and gave medicines for acidity. Now my acidity is in control but still if I eat even a single piece of dry food or dry items I suffer from endless burping for 5 to 6 hours. Please suggest the cause and remedies to solve this problem.

Since you had withdrawal bleeding and pregnancy tests were negative you are unlikely to be pregnant now unless you had sex in this August cycle. May be some simple cyst int the right ovary or inflammation of the appendix or amoebic colitis all these things can give right sided lower abdominal pain. Your bloated nests due to the pills you were taking. Please consult your doctor in person for your abdominal pain and get treated.
