Stomach Problems - It's Preventions!

If you are one of the many people who suffer from stomach and digestive problems, you are probably looking for relief – whether it’s from a short-term issue like diarrhea or vomiting, or from a chronic illness such as Crohn’s disease. Fortunately, digestive health can be improved with diet and lifestyle changes, and medical treatment is available for more serious issues. Improve your stomach problems with changes you can make yourself and by seeking appropriate care.

Cope with having diarrhea. Stay hydrated by drinking water, juice, and broth throughout the day. Get plenty of rest by staying home from work or school and staying in bed. Try over-the-counter anti-diarrheal medicines like Pepto-Bismol or Immodium A-D to help relieve symptoms. Follow a clear liquid diet of water, broth, juice, and sports drinks until you can handle solid food, then introduce the BRAT diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast).

  • Avoid fatty foods, dairy, caffeine, alcohol, and artificial sweeteners.
  • Many cases of diarrhea are caused by viruses and will pass in a couple of days. It may also be the result of foodborne illness, which is far more common than you might think.
  • If your symptoms get worse or don’t resolve after 48 hours, see your doctor — you may need antibiotics or other medications.

Ease nausea and vomiting with a gentle diet. Stay hydrated — like with diarrhea, dehydration is the biggest risk when you’re sick with vomiting. Follow the same guidelines as for when you have diarrhea. If you can eat without vomiting, eat small amounts of bland foods like toast, crackers, and Jell-O. Once you can keep these down, add rice, cereal, and fruit to your diet. Increase what you eat slowly as your illness improves.

  • If you’re too nauseated to drink anything, try sucking on ice chips to get small amounts of fluids.
  • When you do drink liquids, try to have them at room temperature. Avoid cold or hot drinks.
  • Don’t eat spicy or fatty foods, which can further irritate your stomach.
  • Let your stomach calm down after vomiting by waiting for 30 – 60 minutes afterward to eat or drink anything. Don’t try heavy solid foods until at least six hours after you last vomited.
  • If your stomach upset is from motion sickness, try a medication like Dramamine before traveling.

Seek medical care if you become dehydrated. If you have diarrhea or vomiting that lasts over 24 hours, or you cannot keep any liquids down for over 12 hours, see your doctor right away. Seek emergency care if you have any signs or symptoms of dehydration, such as:

  • Extreme thirst
  • Dry mouth or skin
  • Dark urine, or producing little or no urine
  • Weakness, dizzinessfatigue, lightheadedness

See your doctor if you have pain or a high fever. Signs that your stomach problems necessitate medical care include a fever of 102°F (39°C) or higher, or moderate to severe stomach, rectal, or chest pain. If you have blood in your stool or vomit, or your stool is black and tarry, see your doctor right away.

All You Need to Know About Red Diarrhea!

Diarrhea, one of the most common but curable disease. It usually happens due to unhealthy food consumption or for an unpleasant digestive system. In today’s lifestyle, there may be hundreds of reasons behind an unpleasant digestive system like consumption of junk food, drinking impurified water etc.

The symptoms of diarrhea can be determined by simply examining the stool. Where a usual and healthy stool is brown, soft and shaped, diarrhea effected stool can be seen in the form of liquid. There are several types of diarrhea and the colour of the stool helps determine the type of it. Though it is a perfectly curable disease but the type ‘red diarrhea’ is not a good sign for your health. In this article, we will learn about the bloody or red diarrhea briefly.

What is Red Diarrhea?
After the consumption of food, it takes some time to get digested and later stored in the intestine. There the digested remaining turns to a solid material which we know as stool. In case of diarrhea, the digested materials come out of the intestine without spending there enough time to form into a solid material. Diarrhea effected stool comes out in liquid form.

As we mentioned earlier, there are several types of diarrhea, Red Diarrhea or also known as bloody diarrhea is one of them. It is not much harmful and can be cured easily with proper medicine and diet. Below we have discussed the major reasons behind red diarrhea.

Strange Reasons behind Red Diarrhea:
There are five major reasons that may cause red diarrhea.

  • Anal Fissure: A tiny tear in the anus pipe, known as anal fissure can be the cause of your red stool. In such case, the stool won’t be fully red coloured but partially red.
  • Haemorrhoids: In case you don’t know about the haemorrhoids, these are puffy blood vessels inside the anus or rectum. It is one of the major reason behind the red diarrhea and rectal bleeding.
  • Dysentery: diarrhea effected stool with blood is known as dysentery. Parasites named entamoeba histolytica and shigella bacteria are the reason behind it. These parasites may affect your intestine so badly that it can even start bleeding and cause red diarrhea.
  • Red Coloured Food: Yes, consuming unhygienic red coloured food may cause food poisoning and result red diarrhea. We must be focused on about our daily foods, the healthier the better.
  • GI (Gastro Intestinal) Bleeding: Gastric cancer and IBD are the two major reasons behind GI bleeding. It may cause high blood release via anus which can turn bloody diarrhea.

How to Get Rid of Red Diarrhea:
There is nothing to scare about red diarrhea. A simple treatment with proper diet can cure your body in few days. Here are the treatments for red diarrhea you can try.

  1. As our body loses huge amount of liquid in diarrhea, one must consume plenty of water or other liquids.
  2. Drinking ORS is must or your body may become weak.
  3. One should not eat unhealthy or spicy food when they are already effected by diarrhea.
  4. In serious cases one must consult to the doctor.

Treatment Of Piles!

Piles are another name for hemorrhoids, which is a medical condition. In this, the veins of the anal canal become swollen. Hemorrhoids are very much similar to a varicose vein. Veins of the anus and lower rectum become swollen leading to pain and swelling in that area. Hemorrhoids are very much common in fact every 3 out of 4 people suffer from this disease. Rarely can it cause various complications also like anemia and strangulated hemorrhoid.

Causes of hemorrhoids – hemorrhoids usually occur if an unusual strain or pressure is put on the veins of the anus or rectum, causing them to dilate. Thecauses of hemorrhoids are -

  • Pregnancy – hemorrhoids are very much common in a pregnant woman because as during pregnancy, the uterus enlarges causing undue pressure on the vein of colon making them budge.

  • Being overweight – obesity puts additional pressure on your anus or rectum walls causing hemorrhoids.

  • Diarrhea – diarrhea or constipation both can lead to it. Especially in constipation where strain is applied on the walls of blood vessels.

  • Ageing factor – adults of age between 45 to 65 years are most sufferers. But young people and children can get this too.

  • Anal intercourse – according to a survey, one of the common causes of hemorrhoids is anal intercourse which is known to cause new hemorrhoids or worsen the existing ones. Apart from these main causes, other reasons can also be responsible for it like weight lifting, genetic problem, irregular bowel movements, sitting for a long time, using many laxatives etc.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

    Symptoms of Hemorrhoids are

  •  Disrupted bowel movement
  • Bleeding in some cases
  • Itching near the anal area
  • Lumps and swelling in the hemorrhoid region
  • Discomfort and soreness also in that area
  • Pain when passing stool                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  

    How to approach homeopathic treatment for piles?

    If you are suffering from hemorrhoids or piles and needs possible treatment then homeopathic way of healing is the most appropriate one. Although piles is not a deadly disease but can cause severe problems and pain. To get rid of all this, you need to eradicate it from the root which can be done through homeopathy only.

Oranges - 7 Best Reasons To Eat Them!

Oranges are a winter favorite and one of the most loved fruits around the world. The fruit is low in calories, it is good for the skin, the nervous system and the digestive system and it also lowers the risk of many diseases. It can be also included in our diet in several ways- from a morning snack to exotic desserts. Here are a few benefits of oranges:

1. They are good sources of vitamin CHumans are unable to produce vitamin C endogenously, which is essential for our body and so it needs to be included in your diet. Vitamin C reduces inflammation related to arthritis, muscle injuries and also helps in reducing the risk of heart diseases by blocking the oxidation of cholesterol. Oranges are very rich in vitamin C along with other nutrients like vitamin B9, vitamin A, calcium, and potassium.

2. They are an excellent source of fiber - Fiber-rich fruits like oranges have been proven to moderate the levels of blood sugar after a meal because of their natural sugar- fructose content. For this reason, diabetic patients can also have oranges without worry. Moreover, the roughage present in the fruit reduces chances of constipation and diarrhea.

3. Help prevent cancerThe fiber content in oranges can also play a significant role in keeping cancer-causing chemical components away from the colon. Moreover, vitamin C helps build the immune system so as to resist cancer cells. The antioxidants may also help with breast cancer, skin cancer, stomach cancer and lung cancer.

4. Improves the quality of sperm - A vitamin called folic acid, which is present abundantly in oranges, helps to improve the quality of human sperm and the locomotive abilities. Folic acid also protects the sperm from most kinds of genetic damage.

5. Can prevent loss of hair - Production of collagen, which is one of the most important proteins in our body, is done with the help of vitamins, especially vitamin C. Collagen keeps the tissues in the hair together. So, oranges and other foods rich in vitamin C can help keep a healthy growth of hair even in your old age.

6. Checks the formation of kidney stonesJuice of citrus fruits like orange can increase the pH value of urine and can lead to increased excretion of citric compounds from the body. This reduces the possibility of the formation of calcium oxalate stones in the kidney considerably.

7. Promotes brain development - Vitamin B9 and folic acid keep the brain healthy. The polyphenols in orange help in accelerating the learning and memory functions of the brain and facilitate neurological development in the fetus.

Colonic Polyps - Common Tests That Are Prescribed For It!

Colonic Polyps - Common Tests That Are Prescribed For It!

Colon polyps are growths that are typically found in the large intestine. Although the causes behind the occurrence of colon polyps are not known, this condition is usually seen to affect adults.

These colon polyps might turn into colon cancer over a period of time; the development of cancer can happen over a number of years.

Colon polyps are usually symptomless; hence it becomes difficult to diagnose the condition. They are commonly found as additional results of screening tests for colon cancers. Screening tests are conducted when there is a suspicion of a disease but it displays no significant symptoms. The symptoms can only be visible if the polyps are enlarged. Typical symptoms include:

  1. Rectal bleeding.

  2. Changes in bowel conditions such as diarrhoea and constipation.

  3. Changes in urination patterns.

  4. Change in appearance of stool.

As the presence of most polyps becomes evident only during colon cancer tests, it is recommended that regular tests for colon cancer be conducted for adults over the age of 50. Some of these tests include:

  1. Colonoscopy: This is highly recommended for detecting colon polyps. A small tube used for viewing is inserted into the colon by the doctor.

  2. Flexible Sigmoidoscopy: It is similar to colonoscopy with the only difference being that the tube is smaller.

  3. Computed Tomographic Colonography (CTC): Also known as virtual colonoscopy, various computer systems and X-rays are used to create a detailed picture of the colon so that the doctor can search for polyps.

The size of the colon polyps helps to identify if the polyp is cancerous or not. Chances of the polyp being cancerous are high if the size of the polyp is higher than 1 cm or 0.4 inches. Hyperplastic polyps (smaller polyps) do not become cancerous and hence, do not need to undergo a colonoscopy. Another form of polyp is the sessile polyp which is usually a flat growth without a stalk and grows on the inner wall of the colon. Similar to other polyps, these polyps can be found and removed using a colonoscopy or a sigmoidoscopy.
