It’s called fissured tongue. It is s a benign condition characterized by deep grooves (fissures) in the dorsum of the tongue. Although these grooves may look unsettling, the condition is usually painless. Clean the surface of the tongue with a tongue cleaner to prevent any bacterial or fungal infection.

Acute Diarrhoea And Homoeopathy

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Acute Diarrhoea And Homoeopathy

Diarrhoea (or diarrhoea) is when you pass looser or more frequent stools than you do normally. It is one of the main symptoms of gastroenteritis, the other is vomiting. Gastroenteritis is inflammation of the stomach or intestine as a result of a bacterial or viral infection. Diarrhoea usually last for 2-4 days without the need for treatment, however, severe diarrhoea may be life threatening. This is due to fluid loss in watery diarrhoea, particularly in infants and young children, the malnourished and people with weakened immunity.

What causes diarrhoea?

In general, diarrhoea infections are spread through the consumption of contaminated food and water (hence diarrhoea after eating), by dirty hands, or direct contact with faecal matter. Many different types of bacteria viruses and parasites can cause gastroenteritis and subsequently diarrhoea. Some common ones include:

Bacteria. E. G. Salmonella or escherichia (e. Coli) viruses. E. G. Norovirus or rotavirusparasites. E. G. Giardia intestinal water,
Symptoms

What are the symptoms?

You may experience one or more of the following:

Watery stools
Upset stomach or cramps
Urgent need to use the toilet
Nausea and vomiting
Fever
Loss of appetite
Dehydration

Prevention tips

Safe drinking water:

Contaminated water is one of the most significant factors contributing to infectious diseases in developing countries. Make sure you have access to safe water and if storing water in your home be sure to keep the water vessel covered, don't allow anyone to directly touch the water or drink from the vessel and thoroughly rinse the vessel after every use. If you are unsure of the quality of your water, treat it before drinking.

Toilet hygiene:

Using a toilet for the safe disposal of human waste (urine and faeces) is an essential part of the preventing the spread of germs that can cause diarrhoea. Always use a toilet which is connected to the sewerage system or on-site sanitation system (e. G. Septic tank or seepage pit). Flush the toilet after use to make sure all faecal matter is removed and use a toilet cleaner and brush to remove any build-up on the inner surfaces of the toilet. It is also important to keep the area around the toilet clean and regularly touched surfaces (such as the seat, lid, the flush handle should be cleaned and disinfected regularly). Keep the toilet covered to prevent the transfer of germs by flies.

Cloths used to clean the toilet and toilet areas should not be used for cleaning other areas of the home.

Food hygiene:

Good food hygiene will help to prevent gastroenteritis and diarrhoea from food poisoning.

Clean and disinfect food preparation surfaces: after preparing food (especially raw meat, fish or eggs), clean and disinfect any kitchen surfaces that you’ve used. Dirty utensils, cutlery and crockery can be cleaned with detergent and hot water store raw and cooked food separately cook food thoroughly and evenly properly refrigerate food to stop the growth of bacteria

Take extra care when someone in your family is suffering from diarrhoea.

Avoid sharing cutlery, utensils, towels and other personal care items such as flannels and sponges with other household members those suffering from diarrhoea should avoid preparing food for others clean and disinfect your toilet, including the toilet seat and toilet flush, after each bout of diarrhoea remember to wash your hands thoroughly and regularly with soap and water, wait at least 48 hours after symptoms have cleared up before returning to work or school

Homoeopathy has a wonderful effect in controlling diarrhoea since it is the susceptibility which lets us fall prey to bacteria, which generally remain harmless to a healthy person thus treating the disease, not the bacteria and after completion of the acute episode person should go for constitutional homoeopathic treatment to become more resistant for future infections.
Some of more common remedies for diarrhoea are, mercurious solubilus, camphora, veratrum album, Bryonia, gelsemium, baptisia, Aethusa, chamomilla, phosphorus, thuja etc.

In Ayurved we called as a Grahani Rog or in allopathic it is Irritable Bowel Syndrome, its a very common problem thesedays, The root cause of all disease lies within the process of digestion, when the digestive system is working at its optimum supported by correct lifestyle and correct quanity and quality of food as per our individual Prakruti. The food we ingest is broken down in to the constituents that nourish the tissues and supports our everyday functions. When the digestive fire – Agni, which burns within our stomach, is affected by incorrect lifestyle and eating habits this ultimately affects the digestive process causing food to be either partially digested or over digested leading to the formation of Ama- toxins. Not only does incorrect digestive fire give rise to toxins but it weakens the function behind the digestive process itself. Feel free to consult in private with all relevant records for the management.

You are in peri menopausal age. Menopause is said to have started of one does not have menses for 1 year. Menopause means that the ovaries in your body have ceased to produce the ovum and has been depleted of it. Usually when ovum is produced, another hormone called estrogen is also released. Lack of ovulation means lack of estrogen. This deficiency of estrogens causes the various symptoms that you are suffering. It is good that you are going to gym. Your weight of 76 kg is excess for your height of 160cm meet a gynecologist and take her help in solving your bloated feeling. She may prescribe some medicines depending on your assessment and help you. Natural food which help in perimenopause are soyabeans which have naturla estrogens. There are many soya products in market like soya flour, soya paneer (tofu) soya milk, etc use them and see.

Dear lybrate-user if you have bleeding with pain then you may have fissure or piles. If something is coming out during stool passing, it is probably Piles. If nothing is coming out and you have the pain during or after defecation then problem may be fissure. You must come for proper examination .For a while you may try 1. Hot sitz bathe bd 2. Ont.

that means you are getting reinfected after your deworming. so avoid taking contaminated food i.e., avoid out side food, follow proper hygiene of hand wash with soap water before eating any thing. wash the vigelables and greenleafy veg thoroughly with water, because that is the big source of contamination. do not take water in hotels etc., if at all take bottled water. follow these simple precautions your reinfection can be stopped
