बदहजमी की तमाम वजहें हो सकती हैं। मसलन भूख से ज्यादा खाना, खाने को सही तरीके से नहीं चबाना, नींद पूरी न होना, खाना सही तरह से पका न होना या फिर एक्सरसाइज न करना। इसके अलावा तेज मसालेदार भोजन और जीवनशैली में बदलाव के कारण भी पाचन की समस्या पैदा हो सकती है।

बदहजमी होने पर इन घरेलू नुस्खों को आजमाएं :

एक चम्मच अजवाइन के साथ नमक मिलाकर खाने से बदहजमी से तुरंत छुटकारा मिलता है।

एक गिलास पानी में पुदीने के रस की दो-तीन बूंदें डालकर हर तीन-चार घंटे के अंतराल पर पीएं।

एक गिलास गुनगुने पानी में एक चम्मच नींबू, अदरक का रस और दो छोटे चम्मच शहद भी मिला लें। इसे पीने से पाचन संबंधी परेशानी दूर होगी।

अगर एसिडिटी से परेशान हैं, तो एक गिलास पानी में नींबू निचोड़कर पीएं।

अगर चाय पीना नहीं छोड़ सकते, तो हर्बल टी का प्रयोग करना शुरू कर दें।

कॉफी, अल्कोहल और धूम्रपान से बचें। इनसे भी पाचन खराब होने की आशंका होती है।

अधिक टाइट कपड़े और जींस न पहनें।

डिनर सोने से कम से कम दो-तीन घंटे पहले कर लें।

एक चम्मच धनिए के भुने हुए बीज को एक गिलास छाछ में मिलाकर पीएं।

खाने के बाद एक चम्मच सौंफ अवश्य चबाएं।

अगर आपके मुंह का जायका खराब हो रहा है तो अदरक के टुकड़े में काला नमक लगाकर खाएं।

अपने भोजन में रेशेदार फल-सब्जियों को शामिल करें। मैदा से बनी चीजों का सेवन न करें।

भोजन हमेशा समय पर करें.

प्रतिदिन सुबह देसी शहद में निम्बू रस मिलाकर चाट लें.

हींग, लहसुन, चद गुप्पा ये तीनो बूटियाँ पीसकर गोली बनाकर छाँव में सुखा लें, व् प्रतिदिन एक गोली खाएं.

भोजन के समय सादे पानी के बजाये अजवायन का उबला पानी प्रयोग करें.

लहसुन, जीरा १० ग्राम घी में भुनकर भोजन से पहले खाएं.

सौंठ पावडर शहद ये गर्म पानी से खाएं.

लौंग का उबला पानी रोजाना पियें.

जीरा, सौंफ, अजवायन इनको सुखाकर पावडर बना लें,शहद के साथ भोजन से पहले प्रयोग करें.

Know More About Fatty Liver!

Know More About Fatty Liver!

Fatty liver is a condition where excess fat is deposited on this organ. Also called as steatosis, this condition happens when more than 5- 10 percent of the weight of the liver is made up of fat.

Fatty liver is a common condition among people. A study from coastal regions of India found ~ 25% of healthy persons had patients had fatty liver on ultrasound.

It can occur at all ages including childhood, highest prevalence is in 40–50 year age group. Prevalence more in patient who are obese and in diabetic patients.

Types of Fatty Liver

1 Alcoholic fatty liver: This condition occurs when there is a heavy consumption of alcohol. Gastroenterologists recommend abstention from alcohol for this condition to subside. If the patient continues to consume alcohol, then liver cirrhosis may develop.

2 Non alcoholic fatty liver (NAFL): One may develop a fatty liver even if one is not an alcoholic. The liver in some cases is unable to process the fat in cells causing them to build-up on the organ.

When more than 10% of the liver is made of fat then this condition is called Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver (NAFL).

Non alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH): When fatty liver is associated with inflammation in liver patient is said to be having Non alcoholic steatohepatitis. NASH is a more advanced stage of NAFLD, and has a higher risk of progressing to liver cirrhosis or hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). These condition display symptoms like jaundice, vomiting, nausea, loss of appetite and abdominal pain. Blood test (LFT) shows raised enzymes level. Approx 5-8% of the Indian population has NASH. Consult a doctor if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.

3 Fatty liver during pregnancy: Occurring mainly in the third trimester, the symptoms of this condition are vomiting, nausea, pain the right part of the abdomen and jaundice.

Symptoms

During the early stages (fatty liver) of the disease, patients usually have no symptoms directly related to liver disease. However, people may experience a vague abdominal discomfort. If their liver is inflamed (NASH) then they may display symptoms of poor appetite, weight loss, pain in the abdomen and disorientation.

What causes fatty liver?

The most common cause of fatty liver is alcoholism. When the human liver is unable to metabolize fat fast enough or when there is an excess accumulation of fat on the liver cells then the liver becomes fatty. However, intake of high-fat foods may not result in a fatty liver.

Predisposing factor:

1 Diabetes mellitus

2 Obesity or being overweight

3 Hyperlipidemia or the condition where there are high levels of fat in the blood

4 Genetic reasons

5 Rapid loss of weight

6 Drugs: Aspirin, steroids, tamoxifen, tetracycline etc. cause side effects which also leads to fatty liver

7 Nutritional status (eg, overnutrition, severe malnutrition, total parenteral nutrition [TPN], or starvation diet)

8 Other health problems (eg, Hepatitis C infection, celiac sprue and Wilson disease) 

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gastroenterologist.

The first line of treatment that almost everyone resorts to is that of taking laxatives. It is likely to be any of the most frequently advertised one bought over the counter. It may even be something recommended by an elder in the family. The biggest disadvantage of such laxatives is that they are habit forming. Once you start takingthem, you cannot leave them. Otherwise, you will not be able to evacuate your bowels in a satisfactory manner. Here, Homeopathy offers the biggest advantage. The homeopathic medicines do not work as laxatives. This means that you should not expect them to work as short term quick fixes. Rather, they work to improve the digestive system which has lost its proper and smooth functioning. The peristaltic movement of the intestines, which is responsible for pushing out the waste matter is often compromised in patients who are constipated. Homeopathy  intends to cure the root cause of constipation. It is therefore natural that these medicines are going to take some time to get things going. Ultimately, it is effective at restoring this peristaltic movement to the normal self You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda, Gulbarga
Gallstones can range in size from smaller than a grain of sand to larger than a golf ball. According to the american medical association, 80 percent of gallstones are made of hardened cholesterol that develops when there is too much cholesterol in the gallbladder. Other causes include high levels of bilirubin and a concentration of bile in the gallbladder gallstones can cause lot of pain and must be treated immediately. So, consult your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment. There are several natural home remedies too that you can use to prevent and treat gallstones. Some home remedies. Peppermint peppermint aids digestion by stimulating the flow of bile and other digestive juices. Plus, it has a compound called terpene that can effectively dissolve gallstones. It is also believed to help relax spasms and relieve acute gallbladder pain. 1. Boil one cup of water. 2. Add one teaspoon of dried peppermint leaves. 3. Remove from heat, cover and steep for five minutes. 4. Strain and add one teaspoon honey. 5. Enjoy the tea while it is still warm, twice daily for four to six weeks. Drink it between meals for maximum results. Vegetable juice when suffering from gallstones, it is essential to cut down on fried and fatty foods. For a week or two, follow a strict diet based on fruit and vegetable juices. A mixed vegetable juice made of beet root, cucumber and carrots is a good remedy for gallstones. Beet root helps cleanse the liver and strengthens the gallbladder. Cucumber? s high water content is great for detoxifying the liver and gallbladder. Carrots are rich in vitamin c and other nutrients that are good for the immune system. 1. Extract the juice from one beet root, one cucumber and four medium-size carrots. 2. Mix them and drink this juice twice a day. 3. Follow this remedy for two weeks and you? ll notice a huge improvement in your condition. Any queries inform me.

Drink 10 to 12 glasses of water daily. 4. Drink two cups of coconut water daily. 5. Avoid heavy spicy and oily food, pickles. Revert me after 7 days.
