It may reverse on its own but if not, may lead to cirrhosis too. There's no medicine in modern drug. However effective diet control and some well established herbs may prove to be a boon, slowly but surely. Boerhavia diffusa, Tinospora cordifolia, Barberis aristata, Rubia cordifolia etc are few herbs for use. No high end medicines are required. I suggest you to consult me for further advise.

Exercise is good for overall health,helps to keep fit. But gas formation is usually related to dietary habit. Stomach problems are mostly due to Irregular/ unhygienic food habits. Change your food habits, Eat your meals at regular intervals, avoid spicy, oily / fatty food, maida containing food items, fruit juices/ sugary drinks/excessive tea/coffee/alcohol.Dairy products (which contain lactose), legumes (such as beans), and cruciferous vegetables (such as broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage). These foods increase intestinal gas. Avoid these things if possible Increase intake high fibre diet. Take light dinner. Drink plenty of water.

Should I drink water before meal or after meal and why? And I heard a rumor that after meal it is good to drink water as it helps in digestion. And if you drink before it kills your hunger. And I heard a one more rumor as well as drinking water after oily food cause highly bad effect to our health like acidity . My mom never allow me to drink water after eating oily food. Can you break these rumor. With strong reasons?

In ayurveda, there is mentioned in shastra that you should avoid water before food, and also after food. But for better digestion, you should take liquids (water is not compulsory) during diet. Also given ratio, that diet should be 50% solid, 25% liquids, 25% should remain empty of hunger. They give strong reasons, but for understand, you should have some base of ayurveda. Water before meal: decreasing digestion, subsides hunger. (use full in obesity) water during food: helps to convert food into semi-solid and easily digestable water after food: make more stickiness in stomach. Hence increase indigestion, increase kapha portions, increasing weight.

Hi lybrate user. At first you have to follow some basic things so that you get better results in a short period of time. 1) take food two times in a day only 2) drink only 100-150 ml of lukewarm water during meals 3) avoid oily, spicy, salty, junk, fast and fermented foods 4) avoid late night sleeping habits. A) take 30 ml of ojus syrup along with 30 ml of lukewarm water after meals. B) take 30 ml of trifala juice and 30 ml of aloe vera juice along with 30 ml of lukewarm water at night before sleep. C) take 2-2 tablets of pravaalpanchamrut vati and aarogyavardhini vati after meals. Do all these things for fifteen days and give your valuable feedback for further suggestions. Thanks.

I have read somewhere that milk whose effect is acidic, to neutralise it body draws minerals specially calcium from bones which results in weak bones how far this is true? Also milk has tendency to form mucus resulting into strep throat. Is it true?

Milk does not draw calcium from body as it already has calcium in it and thats how the bones are formed of a new born baby who is entirely dependent on milk and other thing that it produces then yes it produces but this mucus is protective and protects us from getting mouth infections as milk is basically protein and gives us immunity to fight against the diseases.
