I am a diabetic patient. I have been suffering from this disease for about last 15 years. I have been taking the medicine, namely, GMR M1, regularly and sugar level is under control. But I have also acidity problem. Especially, after taking a meal some sour substance come to my mouth from the stomach. But after a while it is vanished. When I usually consult with my doctor, he used to give a medicine, namely, Pandosun D. But as well as I want to stop on taking this medicine, after a few days the previous symptoms appear. What can I do in this situation?

Mr. Lybrate-user, hyperacidity and regurgitation problems are likely to be with you. You have to observe certain precautions like: do not keep stomach empty for a long time. Eat small but frequent meals,(every 2 to 3 hours), but total quantity should not exceed your planned daily intake. Plus please keep your blood sugar levels in check - fasting around 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. All these things together will help in controlling excess acidity. Avoid spicy foods, sweets and deep fried fods, pastries and junk foods. Reduce the intake of tea or coffee. If you take alcohol that should be stopped and avoid smoking. After meal (lunch or dinner) sit erect for at least 1 hour or more. Exercise regularly for at least 1 hour a day, that helps reduce acidity.

Hi, ask him to get some physical exercise. Sedentary habits are having the effects like acidity and regurgitation with vomiting. A lite walk for 30 mins twice a day will help him a lot. Also keeping more of fruits and raw salads will provide fibre which will reduce his acidity and will feel relived. For medication go for homoeopathy, thanks.

Hi Mr. Sunny Your son is suffering from problem of improper assimilation of food due to gastro-intestinal problems. And this is responsible for his frequent stools because the stomach and intestines are not able digest and assimilate the food properly leading to weakness and all associated problems. As per my experience these children are usually physically lazy and mentally irritable but variations might occur. Kidney stones are not at all responsible for his problems. Treatment of this problem is possible with holistic homoeopathic medicines and after treating many cases I can tell you that it usually takes 3-4 mnths for the complete cure of problem and improvement is usually seen in first 15 days itself. You need to consult a good homoeopath for this or you can consult me over here or on person as you are in Delhi itself.

Home Remedies For Acidity

1: Bananas

They are a rich source of potassium and help keep the level of acid production in your stomach in check.
Certain components in the fruit also help increase the production of mucous in your stomach, which helps protect it from the harmful effects of excessive acid production.
Are high in fibre content which helps speed up digestion, preventing the recurrence of acidity. ]
Tip for relief
Eat a ripe banana for some relief. You could also eat an overripe banana to beat an especially bad bout of acidity, as they tend to contain more potassium which makes it the perfect antidote.

2: Tulsi

Tulsi leaves help stimulate your stomach to produce more mucous
Has antiulcer properties and reduces the effect of gastric acids,
Tip for relief
Chewing on five to six tulsi leaves when you suffer from acidity is a great way to beat the discomfort you feel.

3: Cold milk

Milk has a high amount of calcium that helps it prevent acid build up and absorbs the excess acid produced, thereby reducing the symptoms of acidity.
The fact that it is cold also provides instant relief from the burning sensation one feels during acid reflux.
Tip for relief
It is essential that you have the milk cold and without any additives like sugar. You could even mix it with a spoon of ghee to make the remedy even more effective.

4: Saunf or aniseed

Has very potent anti-ulcer properties (due to the volatile oils it contains)
Aids in digestion and relieves constipation.
Helps cool the lining of the stomach, reducing that burning sensation you feel during a bout of acidity.
Tip for relief
While simply chewing on a few saunf seeds can help reduce the symptoms of acidity, as a long term remedy, boil a few seeds in water and leave overnight, drink this water during the day when you feel uneasy.

5: Jeera

According to Ayurvedic doctors jeera has a calming effect on irritated stomach nerves and helps heal ulcers.
Tip for relief

6: Clove
When bitten into your taste buds react cloves pungent taste and secrete excess saliva, which in turn aids digestion and beats the symptoms of acidity.
Has carmitive properties and helps improve peristalisis (the movement of food down the stomach).
Tip for relief
In case you’re suffering from acidity, bite a clove once so that the juice is released and then keep it in the mouth. The slowly released juice will immediately lower acid reflux and give you some relief. Cloves can also help relieve a sore throat,

7: Elaichi:

Known to balances all three doshas – kapha, pitta and vata according to Ayurvedic texts, elaichi is known to stimulate digestion and relieve stomach spasms.
It also soothes the inner lining of the stomach helping it ward off the effects of excess acid produced in the stomach.
Tip for relief
To relieve acidity crush two pods of cardamom (with or without the skin), boil the powder in water and drink the cooled juice for instant relief.

8: Mint leaves or pudina

Pudina helpslower the acid content of the stomach and improves digestion.
Has a cooling effect which helps reduce the pain and burning associated with acid reflux.
Tip for relief
If you feel an attack coming on chop some mint leaves, add them to a pot of boiling water and drink this water after it cools. You could also try mint to calm indigestion

9: Ginger

The root is known to improve digestion and aid in better absorption and assimilation of essential nutrients.
It also protect your stomach against ulcers by promoting mucus secretion and reducing the effect of the acid on your stomach.
For relief from acidity, chew a small piece of ginger. If you find that too pungent, try boiling it in water and drinking the decoction. Another remedy is to crush ginger, mix it with a small piece of jaggery and keeping sucking on it allowing the juice to slowly reach the stomach.

10: Amla

Amla is a kapha and pitta pacifier apart from having high amounts of vitamin C that helps in healing the injured stomach lining and oesophagus.
Tip for relief
Have one teaspoon of amla powder twice a day to help keep acidity at bay.
So the next time you feel like you might suffer from a bout of acidity, ditch that bottle of antacid, and try some effective home remedies instead, after all they’ve been around for centuries.

Homeopathy can be a great help for those who suffer from this too much gas problem. Homeopathic medicines nat phos, nat sulph, china, carbo veg, lycopodium, china and nux vomica lead the homeopathic table in treating this problem.
Carbo veg is suited for nearly every kind of symptoms that are associated with gas- belching, flatulence, pains, bloating. It is indicated in excessive gas formation and when everything eaten seems to get converted into gas. Carbo veg is also indicated in complaints of obstructive flatulency (pains around heart, abdomen or any where) that are relived by passing gas.
Lycopodium is indicated in cases where the involvement of lower abdomen is more pronounced also when gas is produced in the evening hours. Lycopodium patients usually complain of a constant sense of fermentation in the abdomen. China is more indicated in cases where whole abdomen bloats like a drum. Nux vomica suits those who are more affected by gas problem because of excessive consumption of alcohol and or rich food.
Hints for controlling excessive gas
Following simple diet and lifestyle changes can help to reduce gastrointestinal gas and relieve symptoms
Be careful while eating
Eat more slowly, chew your food thoroughly and relax while you eat. Make sure that you don? t swallow air while you eat. Do not deliberately swallow air to force a belch
Eat what suits you

Exercise regularly
Exercise regularly and walk for 10 to 15 minutes after eating. Message your complaints in details for treatment.
