Hai, please avoid spicy and sour food items in your diet. Avoid fried salted bakery products. Have normal food in time, don't leave your stomach empty. Have fruits like pomegranate. Drink water. Milk is good. Its good if you include buttermilk in your diet, freshly prepared one.

How can I change this habit?
Some times it is normal if there is no other symptoms like acidity gas heavyness after meal laziness. Etc some diet in your life style also affect your bowel like milk, curd so if you have no other problem, better to leave it normal just focus on diet, digestion. & start exercise. If any problem revert back.

I am ajay I am suffered by gastric problems from 12 year and I am taking medicine but not get good result.
Following are some effective and safe natural remedies for treating gastritis: ginger for gastritis ginger: a small piece of ginger can be chewed some time before having meals. This stimulates digestion and also treats gastritis infection. About 120gm of ginger root taken four times every day for about eight weeks is helpful in eliminating bacteria and reducing recurrence of gastritis. Tamarind: tamarind water mixed with some asafoetida and cumin water should be taken as a drink is an effective natural remedy for gastritis. Coconut water: coconut water has a lot of minerals and compounds which are soothing for digestive system. It is very beneficial in removing toxic radicals from the body. It also helps maintain normal body temperature which assists in normalizing body digestive functions. Coconut water can be given to patient as frequently as possible in a day, for relief from gastritis. Ajwain or carom seeds: carom seed is a natural antacid. It reduces acidic reactions on the mucous membrane and relaxes stomach. Take a teaspoon of carom seeds with a little bit of salt for effective treatment of gastritis. Fennel: fennel helps in relaxing muscle lining in digestive tract. It expels gas and promotes secretion of bile, which helps in digestion of fats. Chew a handful of fennel seeds or make an infusion of it. Drink for relief from gastritis. Yoghurt: yoghurt is especially beneficial in treating gastritis caused by bacterial infection. It also forms a protective layer on the stomach and intestinal lining. Take a bowl of yoghurt daily for effectively treating gastritis. It is an excellent way to get rid of gastritis problems. Liquorice: liquorice has natural antioxidant properties which are helpful in treatment of gastritis. Add some liquorice root tea to a cup of hot water. Strain it after it has cooled. Drink up to thrice a day to naturally treat gastritis. Rice: rice gruel is helpful in forming gastric juice. People suffering from gastritis can take two bowls of rice daily for treating gastritis. In severe cases, take larger quantity of rice.

I have a 10+ year old anal fistula problem, doctors had advised for surgery. As it is not troubling me much, and due few concern, I am not considering an operation to remove fistula. Would it be dangerous if it is untreated. Also is there any medicine as an alternative surgery. Thanks.

There is no treatment of anal fistula other than surgery. In the long run it may get infected and create problems.

I am feeling little pain around my anus while passing stool. Sometimes the pain goes and sometimes its dere. I can feel a small lump there. What is the prblm. How can I cure that?

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Hubli-Dharwad
Anal pain also known as proctalgia common causes:- 1.anal fissure-An anal fissure is a small tear in the skin of the anus that can be caused by passing a large or hard poo. Symptoms of an anal fissure can include: a severe, sharp pain when doing a poo a burning or gnawing pain that lasts several hours after doing a poo rectal bleeding – you may notice a small amount of blood on the toilet paper after you wipe Anal fissures can be very painful, but many heal on their own in a few weeks. Increasing the amount of fibre in your diet, drinking plenty of fluids and taking laxatives and over-the-counter painkillers can help. If the pain persists, you may need special ointment that relaxes the ring of muscle around your anus. Occasionally, surgery may be needed to help the fissure heal. 2.Haemorrhoids (piles) Haemorrhoids (piles) are swellings containing enlarged blood vessels that are found inside or around the bottom. They're often thought to be caused by straining on the toilet as a result of prolonged constipation. In many cases, haemorrhoids don't cause symptoms. When symptoms do occur, they may include: bleeding after doing a poo an itchy bottom feeling like there's a lump in or around your anus soreness and redness around your anus anal pain, if the blood supply to the haemorrhoid becomes blocked or interrupted – for example, by a blood clot The symptoms often pass after a few days. Increasing the amount of fibre in your diet, drinking plenty of fluids and taking laxatives and over-the-counter painkillers can help. If the blood supply to the haemorrhoid has been blocked by a clot, a simple procedure can be carried out to remove the clot under local anaesthetic (where the area is numbed). 3.Anal fistulas and abscesses An anal fistula is a small tunnel that develops between the end of the bowel and the skin near the anus. It's usually caused by an infection near the anus resulting in a collection of pus (an abscess). Symptoms of an anal fistula or abscess can include: a constant, throbbing pain that may be worse when you sit down skin irritation around the anus passing pus or blood when you poo swelling and redness around your anus a high temperature (fever) Your GP may prescribe antibiotics if an abscess is picked up early on. If it persists, it may need to be drained in hospital, possibly under general anaesthetic (while you're asleep). If a fistula develops, surgery will usually be needed because they rarely heal by themselves Less common causes of anal pain When to get medical advice Many common causes of anal pain will improve with simple self-care treatments, so you don't always need to see your GP. But it's a good idea to see your GP if: your pain is severe your pain doesn't improve after a few days you also experience rectal bleeding Don't feel embarrassed to see your GP – anal pain is a common problem that they're used to seeing. Your GP can try to work out what the problem is and give you treatment advice. They'll probably ask to see your bottom and may carry out a rectal examination (where they gently insert a gloved finger into your bottom) to check for any abnormalities. If the cause is not immediately obvious, they may refer you to a specialist for advice and further tests.

Hello- how to get rid of distention: home remedies to manage a gassy stomach ginger: ginger is the most effective anti-flatulent remedy. Grate about 1 inch of the herb and boil well in some water. Add honey and have once daily. You can also extract the juice of ginger and add honey and have it. Those who are prone to stomach upsets, have a hectic and an inconsistent lifestyle and do not exercise regularly; must have a glass of ginger tea every day after meals. Ginger aids in digestion, breaks up gas and helps in its expulsion. Mint: mint tea is another very effective home remedy for gaseous distension. Mint is a carminative and an anti-inflammatory herb. It soothes the gut lining, allays discomfort and pain and helps get rid of gas. Fennel seeds: the fennel seed is another quick-fix. Chew on a spoonful of fennel seeds; fennel seed is the best carminative, i. E. The seeds can effectively and speedily drive out gas and lessen stomach discomfort. In fact, make sure you have a spoonful of the seeds after every meal.

Pain and swelling is often due to piles and fissure. Diet changes, avoiding spices, increasing green veggies and water intake can help. If not, have it examined by a surgeon.
