Hello- spicy diet result in pitta dosha prakopa in body and hence causes headache, sleep disturbances, excessive menses flow, pimples, hot flushes etc in females. First of all try to minimise the intake or it will be seriously harmful for you in long run. Use these ayurvedic medicines to counter the effect- 1. Dadimadi ghrita 1 tsp twice daily. 2. Gulkanda 1 tsp twice daily. 3. Shatavari kalpa 1 tsp twice daily. 4. Increase ghee and milk in your diet.

I go to bathroom to empty my bowels every time I eat something or when I have tea or coffee. I feel discomfort in my stomach after eating and then I go to bathroom to empty my bowels. I find difficult to eat home made foods but I greatly enjoyed junk foods, As I eat vegetables like brinjal and capsicum i. I feel irritation in stomach. I do not like this feeling because it arises every time I had breakfast, lunch or dinner. And I even empty my bowels in the morning but I was having the habit of holding stool in childhood, so is this due to stool holding? What are the disadvantages of holding stool?

Dear friend, holding stool causes many problems. Loss of appetite, piles etc are few of them. You have to go many times because there may be swelling in the intestine or any infection. Try to regulate your routine. Take healthy food and avoid junk food as possible. You may need some medicine also. If not cared now it may disturb your normal life. Tell me to guide further.

Some amount of mucus in the stool is normal; however, significant amounts of mucus and mucus accompanied by diarrhea, pain or blood may signify an intestinal condition such as infection or inflammation. Increased amounts of mucus in the stool can also occur with cancers of the colon or rectum or with bowel obstruction. Since your stool is blackish, I would suggest you to get yourself evaluated by a gastroenterologist.

Abdominal pain is severe or recurrent or if it is accompanied by any of the following symptoms, contact yourhealth care provider as soon as possible: FeverInability to keep food down for more than 2 daysAny signs of dehydration.
