Hi lybrate-user, Ginger and peppermint may do more than add flavor to your food. These are just some of the natural remedies for gas, and chances are they're already in your kitchen. 1. Probiotics for Gas and Bloating Probiotics may also help aid digestion and reduce excessive gas. Probiotics are live microorganisms, mostly "good" bacteria, similar to the bacteria found in the human gut. They're available as dietary supplements, but Lemond notes that a number of foods also have natural probiotics, like Yogurt 2. Apple Cider Vinegar: You would have probably heard this a lot of time” an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. Apple cider vinegar work very well in case of gas in the stomach. Drink apple cider vinegar mixed in a glass of water to get instant relief in gastric problems. 3. Mint: Eating junk food, not eating on proper time and unhealthy lifestyle contributes to many gastric problems you can take any over the counter medications for this problem but they have their own side effects.

Hi, I have stones in gallbladder, can you explain how can they be reduced without operation?

BHMS
Homeopath, Sindhudurg
The homeopathic remedies for gall stones are made of natural substances and have no side effects. The best homeopathic remedy for the patient is prescribed after taking note of the gall stone symptoms in each individual. Homoeopathy cures without surgery.

I am suffering from fistula since 10-15years. Without operations can it be cured by medicine. As push discharge in low quantity.

Most likely it's anal fissure. Start sitz bath. Avoid oily and spicy food. Take fibre rich diet. Avoid constipation. For further queries and treatment you may consult online.

Hello doctor.I m worried about a small lump I developed at the opening of my anus which was result of me passing a dry and hard stool with pain.Pls advice how it can b treated.The pain has got lighter in the last one day.I applied an ointment. Thanks

Dear , This is very likely to be perianal haematoma which occurs sometimes after passage of hard faeces.If pain has decreased then it would probably subside. It is better if you take Sitz bath once or twice a day: sitting in a tub full of lukewarm water with a few drops of dettol in it. This will help to subside it quickly. However if pain increase and takes throbbing character then a course of antibiotics should be taken. If pain or throbbing becomes severe enough to disturb your sleep at night then contact a proctologist or a general surgeon. Dr. Kiran Mehta.
