I am 36 years male. Had protected sex 12 weeks back with un-known status lady, in last minute condom broke and I came out immediately and saw the semen on her thighs, she says she is clean. I was under anxiety and tremendous pressure, I met doctor after 3 days. He suggested PEp. Started PEP after 80 hours of my exposure and stopped after 3 days as I felt it has more side-effects. I was having GERD symptoms due to anxiety and took medicine for GERD (Nexpro). After that due to stress may be I had feeling of go to toilet (but did not go, symptoms like IBS). I used antibiotic (Rifaset) for 10 days (20 tablets). After 10 weeks of exposure (after 1 week usage of my antibiotic) I had mild rash at my back and it was painful. I did not used any medicine for rash and it went off after 10 days. I had following tests: 1. RNA PCR at 6 and 16 days after exposure - Negative 2. RNA PCR Quantitative at 16 days - below detectable level 3. Rapid test at 6 and 8 weeks after exposure- Negative 4. Duo test CMIA (p24 antigen and antibody) - Non-reactive 5. rapid test after 11 weeks (Tridot test) - Negative. Can you please suggest when to test next to make results conclusive and is my 3 days PEP course after 80 hours of exposure has any impact on seroconversion, Antibody detection or test results. I am planning for one more duo test tomorrow (after 84 days of exposure)
In the case of hyperacidity, gastric acid secretion from glands of stomach increases. The excess amount of acid causes a burning sensation in an upper part of the abdomen. According to Ayurveda, it is known as amlapitta. In ayurveda, the pitta dosha includes whole enzymatic, hormonal secretions and digestive juices of the body. In amlapitta, pitta dosha which is bitter increases and gets vitiated due to wrong dietary habits and lifestyle. This vitiated pitta dosha becomes sour (amla) in taste, that's why it is called amlapitta. Normally this pitta helps in digestion of food but in vitiated form it does not complete the digestive process and causes indigestion. This undigested food causes toxin formation.
Causes of hyperacidity
1) excessive physical and mental stress.
2) pitta aggravating diet like spicy, salty and fried food.
3) excessive intake of citrus fruits.
4) excessive exposure to heat like wandering in sun heat.
5) prolonged fasting.
6) modern medicine considers h. Pylori infection as the most common cause of hyperacidity.
Symptoms of amlapitta
1) burning sensation in the chest is the cordial feature of amlapitta.
2) sour eructation, bloating, abdomen distension especially after meals.
3) indigestion of the taken meals.
Management of amlapitta at sukhayurveda
Hyperacidity starts when accumulated toxins begin to disrupt functions of the digestive system. We at sukhayurveda cure underlying root causes like indigestion, constipation, gastritis etc. And provide natural recommendations to remove and help prevent toxin accumulation from:
A) hard to digest food
B) poor digestion
C) poor elimination
D) mental and physical stress
Sukhayurveda detoxifying therapies for amlapitta include abhyangam full body massage, therapeutic purgation etc.
2) proper nutrition
As amlapitta is the disease of the digestive system, so, proper diet has a key role in its treatment. We at sukhayurveda provide proper diet chart to the patients of amlapitta. Pitta pacifying food is recommended. Avoid curd, citrus fruits, tomatoes, excessive salt, tea, coffee, spices and favor foods that are easy-to-digest, nourishing, cleanse the physiology, strengthen digestion and balance your body's inner intelligence. Sukhayurveda consultant advises:
A) proper use of spices and cooking oils
B) herbal preparations to improve digestion
C) proper spacing between breakfast, lunch and dinner
D) favoring foods which stimulate digestion
E) reducing consumption of foods that depress digestion
F) proper food combinations to avoid indigestion
G) non-dietary regiments to improve digestive strength including exercise, specific yoga asanas etc.
3) Ayurveda herbs
We at sukhayurveda also provide proper herbal formulations for hyperacidity and to cure its underlying cause also like constipation, indigestion, excessive stress, gastritis etc. Drugs which are pitta pacifying and improving digestion are used mainly. Amla, mulethi, draksha, kshar, shankh, shukti are mainly used to cure hyperacidity.
4) stress management
Excessive mental and physical stress also is a causative factor for hyperacidity. We at sukhayurveda also provide stress relieving programs. Our destress therapies include shirodhara, takradhara, ksheerdhara, aromatherapy, oil massage etc. Stress causes increased gastric acid secretions causing hyperacidity and it also interferes with digestive process causing indigestion. Enhancing body's ability to recover from stress is an integral part of our approach to health and well-being.
5) lifestyle and daily routine
One of the most important factors for maintaining proper health is to have a lifestyle that does not disturb body's natural rhythms. Sukhayurveda consultant reviews daily routine and creates a daily schedule that will increase balance in physiology and aid in the healing of the body. Avoid excess exposure to heat. Never lie down immediately after taking meals.
Strengthening the body's natural healing and self-repair mechanisms
We at sukhayurveda not only aim to cure the disease but also to cure the underlying causative factors. We boost one's inner power to fight with diseases naturally. The healing response is one of the most complex and coordinated activity within the human physiology and often cannot be strengthened significantly without a comprehensive natural approach.
Taking together all the sukhayurveda programs described above, aim to create the ideal mental, physical and behavioral environment for healing.
