Mr. Lybrate-user, acid reflux is a functional disorder. Though many theories are there for its cause but still no cause has been established thoroughly. I would advise you for the following: 1. Do not stay empty stomach for long durations, have small meals at small intervals. 2. Exercise daily and take small amounts of protein foods/drinks. 3. Have lots of fruits and vegetables, provided fruits do not aggravate your problems. 4. Have meal two hours before the bed time and do not take drinks like tea or coffee before going to bed. 5. Do not over consume liquor, though you can have small amounts but not empty stomach. 6. Proper sleep is must. 7. Do not over stress yourself with work or family issues, feel confident that you can manage any situation and things are well in control. Planning is good but expectations before any task are bad because they give disappointments, just plan and act and do not believe in result until and unless you get it as desired. 8. Spicy fried and fat foods are not good for you. 9. Avoid much of bakery items and fast foods. 10. You should begin some stress buster activity like cycling, swimming, cooking, short vaccations on weekends, free time with friends and family. All these things will help you in tackling your problem, but you shall follow these advises for a few months, because it takes time to change habits. Hope for you a speedy recovery.

This is the case of hyper acidity. It may be due to food habit irregular and unhealthy fermented item or taking fast foods, if drinking water with meals also cause hyperacidity. Other things is working habit, like long sitting posture, stress induced etc. In ayurveda it is described as amlapitta and it is cure through medicine. You can takes 1. Avipattikar churna 3 gms before every meal (it is sugar based powder if you are suffering from diabetes, please do not take this medicine.

Sir I am suffering from gb stones from last three years. More pain is occurred in my left side. Please suggest me suggestions.

Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, take Berberis vulgaris Q, 15 drops with water thrice daily. Take Cholesterinum 3X , 2 tabs twice daily. Home remedies :- 1. The acidic nature of apple cider vinegar stops the liver from making cholesterol that is responsible for forming the most common type of gallstones. It also plays a key role in dissolving gallstones and alleviating pain. Mix one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of apple juice. Drink it whenever you have a gallstone attack. This will significantly ease the pain within 15 minutes. you can add two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and one teaspoon of lemon juice to a glass of warm water. Drink it on an empty stomach in the morning. Doing this regularly for weeks can dissolve gallstones and prevent pain. 2. Pears can also provide relief from gallstone pain and other symptoms. The compound pectin present in pears helps soften cholesterol-filled gallstones, which in turn get flushed out of your body easily. Mix half a glass of pear juice with half a glass of hot water. Mix in two tablespoons of honey. Drink this juice three times a day for two weeks. peel and de-seed some pears. Cut the pears in small pieces and cook them in water for about 20 minutes. Eat a bowl of the warm cooked pears twice daily for two weeks. All of the following are healthy foods for your gallbladder, as well as the rest of your body:- Fresh fruits and vegetables Whole grains (whole-wheat bread, brown rice, oats, bran cereal) Lean meat, poultry, and fish Low-fat dairy products.

Doctor, I think I have external piles? I don't feel much pain, but having a lump around anus and it doesn't go inside when pushed wither finger. It stays outside always. I have to strain every morning and lot of pressure I feel at anal area. Sometimes which is mostannoying and causing discomfort? if I eat banana the previous night, it goes freely in morning. What sort of medicines should I take or any natural remedy to cure it. How long I have to wait for the relief from lump type thing in anus. I'm 25 yrs old. I tend to do exercises in morning. Still I have the problem.

Dear try the remedies and continue eating banana at night daily. Constipation should be avoided anyhow. HOME REMEDIES TO CURE PILES:: 1.Apply sesame oil on external dry piles followed by warm fomentation (warm moist compresses or sitting in warm water). The easiest method is to sit in a tub with the buttocks submerged in warm water. 2.Eat 4 figs twice a day, in the morning and evening. Saturate 4 figs in water for the whole night; eat these in the morning. Remember not to drink water prior to eating the figs. Saturate another 4 figs in the morning to be eaten in the evening. Do this every day for 4 weeks. 3. Take 1 tsf triphala churna at night daily with luke warm water. 4. Revert me back.

Dear sir I have soo many digestic problem I left so much gases and I am slim and I eat 3 times rice with pulse and green vegetables and sometime eat egg meat etc, and so much sweat left from my full body like underarms, chest, palm, foot.

MBBS, DNB, Diploma Dyslipidemia, CCEBDM, CCMTD
General Physician, Gurgaon
Dear lybrate user with the limited information provided it appears that you are suffering form indigestion issues. This is a common entity when we consume a high carbohydrate load and our intestines are not able to cater all of it, which is then converted to free compounds which later presents as flatulence and uneasiness. It is advisable if you can start exercising regularly along with intake of high fibre diet and liberal fluid intake. Some blood test can also be done if your problem persist. Hope this solves your query. Anything more then feel free to revert.

Coconut at times increases acidity whereas coconut water reduces acidity .what is your opinion on that .

B.Sc.- Food & Nutrition, M.Sc- Food Science & Nutrition, NET (LS)
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Kolkata
Tender coconut water is a fruit. It is alkaline so neutralises the acid in stomach. Avoid foods which cause acidity, have small frequent meals, drink plenty of water but not with meal, do not lie down immediately after a meal.
