Take 11 guava leaves, 11 black pepper, 1 cup milk and one cup water. Put all of them in pot and boil it well, when it reduced to one cup, drink in empty stomach. Take this daily for at least six months or a year. 2.Boil cumin seeds in water and inhale the steam. It helps dilate the bronchial passage. 3.Take 5 gm of ginger, black pepper, cardamom, clove, cinnamon, turmeric and 30 gm of sugar. Grind the mix to a powder. Take half to one teaspoonful and mix it nicely with honey. Take it twice a day 4.Pulses like old rice (rice which is stored for at least one year is called old), wheat, barley, kulattha, mung beans, arhar beans, etc . should be consumed. 5.Honey, warm drinks like herbal teas, spice teas are also okay. 6.Sprouts, nuts and seeds can be taken in moderate amount. 7.The heavy foods and those which make ama should be avoided. This mainly includes milk products like cheese, curd, butter milk, creams, and banana, etc. 8.Oily, greasy and fried foods which are difficult to digest should be avoided. 9.White flour and white sugar products should be avoided. 10.In addition, try to avoid the cold foods, cold drinks and other refrigerated things. 11.Avoid excessive or physically demanding exercise.

Can activated charcoal be taken for cleansing of stomach? I have digestion problems due to anxiety, fear and stress.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Can activated charcoal be taken for cleansing of stomach? I have digestion problems due to anxiety, fear and stress.
Cleansing stomach is a misnomer believed by common men and quacks. STRESS CONTROL There are many ways to tame your stress and keep it at bay. Here are tips to tame your stress today, and keep the stress monsters at bay. 1. Perform diaphragmatic or “deep breathing” exercises. 2. Lie face down on the floor and begin breathing deeply and slowly, with your hands resting under your face. Do this for five minutes. 3. Sit in a reclining chair. Put a hand on your abdomen and a hand on your chest. As you breathe, make sure the hand on your abdomen is moving up and down rather than one on your chest. If the hand on your abdomen is moving you are breathing deeply and slowly. 4. Try progressive muscle relaxation or “deep muscle” relaxation. Progressively tense and relax each muscle group in your body. Learn the difference between muscle tension and relaxation. 5. Meditate. Use visualization or guided imagery to help you learn to be one with your thoughts. Sit quietly with your eyes closed, imagining the sights, sounds and smells of your favorite place, such as a beach or mountain retreat. 6. Exercise regularly or take up yoga.

Hello osama, 1 don't take water during food and just after food, this is biggest cause of gas and acidity. Take water after 1 hour of food. 2 don't control urge for stool. If you will control these two thing 70% of your problem would be solved. One medicine if you can purchase:- powder mulethi 1/2 tsf + powder avipattikar churna 1/2 tsf. Take these two with cold milk. Your gas acidity problem will be resolved for sure. Secondly, for frequent urination:- take this problem more seriously, as it occurs due to various pathologies in the body like diabetes. So first get your kidney checked. Taking medicine for frequent urination without proper consultation can be harmful. So, give time for a detail consulation for the same. Get well soon.

Hi, For your tummy first get checked with a surgeon whether you have hernia, umbilical or incisional .If there is a hernia requiring surgery get it done. Meanwhile you have to learn abdominal core muscle strengthening exercises and start doing it which you have to do after the surgery also if you undergo one. Otherwise with exercise alone you can see whether your tummy is going in. But please check with a doctor what is it you are suffering from. RegRding your cycle it is absolutely normal and your tiredness ,back pain are due to other things like taking care of children. Also back pain may be due to your bulging tummy which can alter the curvature of your back and giving pain. E er isle is the best remedy for everything.
