Dear lybrate user, According to your symptoms, it seems that you are suffering from acidity. Avoid oily spicy food immediately. Take half glass of milk and half glass of water. Add one pinch cardamom powder in it and drink it in the early morning daily. And only take fruits in the breakfast. You will feel relaxed.

Gerd is gastroesophagial reflux disease. Reflux is due to abnormality in antireflux mechanism either due to functional or structural problems. Structural problems like large hiatal hernia needs to be corrected doing surgery otherwise it recurs. Reflux for long is bad for health as it can give rise to serious health issues in future if neglected for long. Avoid chocolates/ tea/ coffee/ ice-creams/ overeating at night. Dinner should be light and early. Go to sleep after 2 hours of taking dinner. Lie on your left side as it prevents refluxes. Place 2 pillows beneath your head at night. Avoid late night sleep. Consult a specialist for antireflux medications.

पित्त की पथरी - Gallbladder Stone

Ayurveda, Delhi
पित्त की पथरी - Gallbladder Stone

पित्त की पथरी
डॉक्टर्स कहते हैं के अगर को पित्त की पथरी निकाल दे तो वह एक करोड़ रुपैये देंगे। ये दावा सिर्फ लोगो का आयुर्वेद से लोगो को भटकाने के लिए हैं। आज उनके लिए हैं ये पोस्ट, आशा करते हैं आपको फायदा होगा। और हम फिर से यही कहेंगे के जब भी आप ये प्रयोग करे तो किसी आयुर्वेद, होम्योपैथिक, या एलोपैथिक डॉक्टर के संरक्षण में करे।आयुर्वेद किसी का विरोध नहीं करता।
पित्त पथरी, पित्ताशय के अन्दर पित्त अवयवों के संघनन से बना हुआ रवाकृत जमाव होता है। इन पथरियों का निर्माण पित्ताशय के अन्दर होता है लेकिन ये केंद्र से दूर रहते हुए पित्त मार्ग के अन्य भागों में भी पहुंच सकती है जैसे पुटीय नलिका, सामान्य पित्त नलिका, अग्न्याशयीय नलिका या एम्प्युला ऑफ वेटर.
पित्ताशय में पथरी की उपस्थिति तीव्र कोलेसिसटाइटिस का कारण बन सकती है जो कि पित्ताशय में पित्त के अवरोधन के कारण होने वाली सूजन की अवस्था है और यह प्रायः आंत संबंधी सूक्ष्मजीवों द्वारा होने वाले द्वीतियक संक्रमण का कारण भी बनता है, मुख्यतः एस्चीरिचिया कोली और बैक्टिरॉयड्स वर्गों में. पित्त मार्ग के अन्य हिस्सों में पथरी की उपस्थिति के कारण पित्त नलिकाओं में अवरोध पैदा हो सकता है जोकि एसेन्डिंग कोलैनजाइटिस या पैन्क्रियेटाइटिस जैसी गंभीर अवस्थाओं तक पहुंच सकता है। इन दोनों में से कोई भी अवस्था प्राणों के लिए घातक हो सकती है और इसलिए इन्हें चिकित्सीय आपातस्थिति के रूप में देखा जाता है।

1. Gallbladder (पित्त की थेली) की पत्थरी निकालने का प्राकृतिक उपचार:- आज बहुत से लोग इस से परेशान हैं, और डॉक्टर भी इस के आगे फेल हैं।कृपया शेयर करते रहिये।पहले 5 दिन रोजाना 4 ग्लास एप्पल जूस (डिब्बे वाला नहीं) और 4 या 5 सेव खायें.छटे दिन डिनर नां लें.इस छटे दिन शाम 6 बजे एक चम्मच'सेधा नमक' (मैग्नेश्यिम सल्फेट) 1 ग्लास गर्म पानी के साथ लें.शाम 8 बजे फिर एक बार एक चम्मच' सेंधा नमक' (मैग्नेश्यिम सल्फेट) 1 ग्लास गर्म पानी के साथ लें.रात 10 बजे आधा कप जैतून (olive) या तिल (sesame) का तेल - आधा कप ताजा नीम्बू रस में अच्छे से मिला कर पीयें.सुबह स्टूल में आपको हरे रंग के पत्थर मिलेंगे.नोट: पालक, टमाटर, चुकंदर, भिंडी का सेवन न करें।
2. सेब का जूस और सेब का सिरका (apple and apple cider vinegar)- सेब में पित्त की पथरी को गलाने का गुण होता है, लेकिन इसे जूस के रूप में सेब के सिरके के साथ लेने पर यह ज्यादा असरकारी होता है। सेब में मौजूद मैलिक एसिड (mallic acid) पथरी को गलाने में मदद करता है तथा सेब का सिरका लिवर में कोलेस्ट्रॉल नहीं बनने देता, जो पथरी बनने के लिए जिम्मेदार होता है। यह घोल न केवल पथरी को गलाता है बल्कि दोबारा बनने से भी रोकता है और दर्द से भी राहत देता है।उपचार के लिए- एक गिलास सेब के जूस में, एक चम्मच सेब का सिरका मिलाएं। इस जूस को रोजाना दिन भर में दो बार पीएं।

3. नाशपाती का जूस (pear juice)- नाशपाती के आकार की पित्त की थैली को नाशपाती द्वारा ही साफ किया जाना संभव है। नाशपाती में मौजूद पैक्टिन (pectene) कोलेस्ट्रॉल (cholesterol) को बनने और जमने से रोकता है। यूं भी नाशपाती गुणों की खान है जिसके कई स्वास्थ्य लाभ हैं।उपचार- एक गिलास गरम पानी में, एक गिलास नाशपाती का जूस और दो चम्मच शहद (honey) मिलाकर पीएं। इस जूस को एक दिन में तीन बार पीना चाहिए।

4. चुकंदर, खीरा और गाजर का जूस (beetroot, cucumber and carrot juice)- जूस थेरेपी को पित्त की थैली के इलाज के लिए घरेलू उपचारों में सबसे ज्यादा इस्तेमाल किया जाता है। चुकंदर न केवल शरीर का मजबूती देता है बल्कि गॉल ब्लेडर को साफ भी करता है साथ ही लिवर के कोलोन (colon) को भी साफ करता है। खीरा में मौजूद ज्यादा पानी की मात्रा लिवर और गॉल ब्लेडर दोनों को डिटॉक्सीफाई (detoxify) करती है। गाजर में भी विटामिन सी और उच्च पोषक तत्व (high nutrient) होने के कारण यही गुण होते हैं।उपचार- एक चुकंदर, एक खीरा और चार गाजर को लेकर जूस तैयार करें। इस जूस को प्रतिदिन दो बार पीना है। जूस में प्रत्येक सामग्री की मात्रा बराबर होनी चाहिए, इसलिए सब्जी या फल के साइज के हिसाब से मात्रा घटाई या बढ़ाई जा सकती है।

5. पुदीना (mint)- पुदीना को पाचन के लिए सबसे अच्छी घरेलू औषधि (home remedy) माना जाता है जो पित्त वाहिका तथा पाचन से संबंधित अन्य रसों को बढ़ाता है। पुदीना में तारपीन (terpenes) भी होता है जो कि पथरी को गलाने में सहायक माना जाता है। पुदीने की पत्तियों से बनी चाय गॉल ब्लेडर स्टोन से राहत दे सकती है।उपचार- पानी को गरम करें, इसमें ताजी या सूखी पुदीने के पत्तियों को उबालें। हल्का गुनगुना रहने पर पानी को छानकर इसमें शहद मिलाएं और पी लें। इस चाय को दिन में दो बार पीया जा सकता है।

6. खान-पान और दिनचर्या में बदलाव (changes in diet and daily activity)- रोजाना 8 से 10 गिलास पानी जरूर पीएं। चाहे प्यास न भी लगी हो।वसायुक्त या तेज मसाले वाले खाने से बचें।प्रतिदिन कॉफी जरूर पीएं। बहुत ज्यादा भी नहीं लेकिन दिन में एक से दो कप काफी हैं। कॉफी भी पित्त वाहिका को बढ़ाती है जिससे पित्त की थैली में पथरी नहीं होती।अपने खाने में विटामिन सी की मात्रा बढाएं। दिनभर में जितना ज्यादा संभव हो विटामिन सी से भरपूर चीजें खाएं।हल्दी, सौंठ, काली मिर्च और हींग को खाने में जरूर शामिल करें।

Worm infestation is the commonest cause of itching around the anus. Physical and nutritional hygiene is useful. Take lot of green vegetables & plenty of fluids. Avoid chillies & spices. Tablet zentel may be taken (single dose) once every 15 days for 2-3 months. Local application of non medicated sooting cream (eg nivea or ponds etc) may be applied 2-3 times a day.

Dear Lybrate User, ** To combat extra acid in your stomach baking soda is an effective and a commonly available antacid. The basic nature of soda neutralizes the excess hydrochloric acid in the stomach forming salt and water. Mix half teaspoon of baking soda in half a glass of water and drink the solution on an empty stomach. It will get you fast relief from gas and indigestion. *During the condition of lack of hydrochloric acid in our stomach black pepper can be very effective to cure the problem. Black pepper can increase the flow of gastric juices and thus help in digestion. Powdered black pepper with crushed jaggery can be taken along buttermilk during indigestion. Or a fine powder of black pepper, dried mint leaves, ginger powder and coriander seeds, all taken in equal amounts, can be consumed twice a day (one teaspoon) to treat gas and indigestion.

I have a stone in my gall Bladder? I have taken apple juice and olive oil be good no result are found how may I remove stone?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Delhi
Apple juice and olive oil are just not there to remove gall stones, one should use proper medicines first to break stones in small piecess and then it should be removed from gall bladder. Not in original form it can cause severe pain and may end up letting you being on operation table. 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.
