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.

Dast Rokne Ke Upay - दस्त रोकने के उपाय

दस्त एक आम समस्या है जिससे सभी परेशान रहते हैं. ये समस्या आम तौर पर खाने में अनियमितता या अन्य किसी वजह से कई लोगों को परेशान करती है. इस बीमारी में शौच एकदम पतला होने लगता है. इसमें आपको  बार-बार शौच जाना पड़ सकता है. इसके साथ ही आपको पेट में मारोड़, दर्द या ऐंठन जैसा भी महसूस हो सकता है. दस्त से डिहाईड्रेशन की समस्या उत्पन्न हो जाती है. क्योंकि बार-बार शौच जाने से शरीर के लिए आवश्यक पानी, खनिज तथा लवण आदि तेजी से बाहर निकल जाता है. सामान्य सी लगने वाली इस बीमारी में यदि आप लगातार पानी नहीं पी रहे हैं तो डिहाईड्रेशन के कारण मौत तक हो सकती है. क्योंकि डिहाईड्रेशन की वजह से शरीर में पानी और लवण की कमी हो जाती है. इस लिए दस्त के निम्नलिखित लक्षणों के आधार पर यदि ये दो दिन में ठीक न हो तो चिकित्सक से अवश्य परामर्श लें.
क्या हो सकते हैं दस्त के कारण?
1. दस्त की समस्या उत्पन्न होने का मुख्य कारण है आँतों में जरुरत से ज्यादा द्रव का जमा होना. हलांकि कई बार आंतों द्वारा तरल पदार्थ को ठीक तरह से अवशोषित न कर पाने से या फिर आँतों से मल के तेजी से निकलने के कारण भी ऐसा होता है.
2. कई बार दस्त की समस्या जीवाणुओं द्वारा संक्रमण या टॉक्सिन आदि भी हो सकता है. कभी-कभी किसी प्रकार का तनाव या किसी प्रकार के डर के कारण भी दस्त शुरू हो सकते हैं. ऐसे दस्त को क्रोनिक या जीर्ण दस्त कहते हैं.
3. दस्त या दस्त होने के अन्य कारणों में कुछ एंटीबायोटिक दवाएं, किसी तरह के पेट के रोग, फ़ूड इन्फेक्शन, एलर्जी, शराब पिना, ज्यादा मिठाई खाना आदि है.
क्या है इसका उपचार?
नींबू पानी

ओआरएस का घोल आप घर पर नींबू की सहायता से बना सकते हैं. आपको एक ग्लास पानी में नींबू निचोड़कर उसमें थोड़ा नामक और चीनी मिलाकर पिने से आपका पेट साफ़ होगा. और दस्त से राहत मिलेगी.
कच्चा पपीता
कच्चे पपीते को अच्छे से कद्दूकस करके तीन से चार कप पानी में डालें. लगभग दस मिनट तक इस पानी को उबालने के बाद इस पानी को दिन में तीन से चार बार पिएं. इससे आपको दस्त से तो राहत मिलेगी ही, पेट मरोड़ से भी निजात मिलेगी.
साबुनदाना
साबुनदाना पेट की पाचन शक्ति को मजबूती प्रदान करता है. साबुनदाना को तीन-चार घंटे तक पानी में भिगोकर इस पानी को दिन में पांच बार पिने से दस्त में राहत मिलती है.
सरसों के बीज
सरसों के बीज को पानी में कुछ घंटे के लिए रखें और इस पानी को पिएं. ये दस्त को बंद करने का कारगर तरीका है.
दूध को कहें ना
दूध भले ही एक सम्पूर्ण पौष्टिक आहार माना जाता है. लेकिन इसे पचाना अपेक्षाकृत मुश्किल है. इसलिए दस्त के समय दूध के सेवन से बचें.
अनार
अनार को चबाकर खाने से भी दस्त रुकता है. यदि आपको बीज पसंद नहीं है तो आप अनार का जूस भी पी सकते हैं.
लौकी का रस
दस्त में सबसे बड़ा डर शरीर में पानी की कमी होने को लेकर होता है. यदि आप चाहते हैं कि आप पानी की कमी से बचें तो आपको लौकी का जूस पीना चाहिए. इसे काली मिर्च और नमक डालकर थोड़ा स्वादिष्ट बना सकते हैं.
मेथी
चूँकि दस्त का एक कारण जीवाणु भी होते हैं. मेथी स्वभाव से जीवाणुरोधी होता है इसलिए इसके एक या दो चम्मच का पाउडर बनाकर एक ग्लास पानी में डालकर पिने से दस्त रुकता है.
स्टार्च से भरपूर भोजन
स्टार्च खाना पचाने में मदद करता है. इसलिए दस्त के समय स्टार्चयुक्त भोजन करने की सलाह दी जाती है. इसके लिए आप चावल, उबला हुआ आलू या गाजर खा सकते हैं.
सौंठ
सौंठ और अदरक का पाउडर हमारे पाचन शक्ति को मजबूती देता है. एक कप छाछ में आधा चम्मच सौंठ मिलाकर पिने से पेट दर्द और दस्त दोनों ही रुकता है.
चाय पत्ती
आपको शायद यकीन न हो लेकिन ये सच है कि दस्त में एक चम्मच चाय पत्ती को पीसकर पीने से तुरंत राहत मिलती है. यदि छोटे बच्चे को देना हो तो एक चम्मच चाय पत्ती को पानी में घोलकर उस पानी को पिलाएं.

Balance Disorder: Causes And Symptoms

Balance disorders are a combination of physiological factors that can make you feel unsteady or dizzy. While sitting, standing or lying down, you may feel as if you are floating, moving, or spinning and you may feel dizzy and dazed for the time being. This disorder can intervene in your daily activities of life, and can even lead to falls and accidents, which may cause you to end up with fractures and other types of injuries.

What causes balance disorder?

A combination and coordination of many body systems such as muscles, bones, vision, the balancing organ within the ear, heart and nerves help maintain normal balance. Dysfunction of these systems can lead you to encounter balance problems. Balance disorders can be caused by many types of conditions.

Some of the causes of the disorder are:

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV): This occurs due to dislodged or displaced calcium crystals in the inner ear, which help you maintain balance. It is the most commonly found cause of vertigo. A spinning sensation while turning in bed is a common sign.

  2. Head injury: A severe concussion can also cause vertigo.
  3. Ramsay Hunt syndrome: Commonly known as zoster otitis, this condition affects the nerves close to the ears. It can be attributed to hearing loss, vertigo and pain in the ear.
  4. Vestibular problems and nerve damage: Damaged nerves in the legs can cause difficulty in movement and locomotion. Abnormalities and dysfunctions in the inner ear can lead to a sensation of dizziness and a heavy head.

How do you know if you have balance disorder?

Travel Sickness - 6 Homeopathy Medicines That Will Help You

What is motion sickness?

Motion sickness (travel sickness, car sickness) is a general sense of not feeling well, nausea, vomiting, headache, and sweating that is caused by repeated motion. It develops when the inner ear, the eyes, and other areas of the body that detect motion send conflicting messages to the brain. Any type of transportation can cause motion sickness.

Children are more susceptible to motion sickness than adults. About half of children between the ages of 4 and 10 experience dizziness and nausea when travelling by car, airplane or boat. Girls tend to be more susceptible than boys.

What are the symptoms of motion sickness?

The most common signs and symptoms of motion sickness include:

  1. Nausea
  2. Increased salivation
  3. Vomiting
  4. Pale skin
  5. Perspiration
  6. Dizziness
  7. Headache

Homeopathy for Motion Sickness

In most cases treatment with homoeopathic drugs is necessary and in some cases,  it is the only method of treatment as conventional treatment cannot offer a cure always. Merely treating Motion sickness on symptomatology basis has failed to give permanent relief. So a holistic approach considering the individualistic treatment to provide an improved understanding of the patient’s situation and to make it easier and possible to avoid recurrences in the future has to be kept in mind in treating such diseases.

In the context of travel, homoeopaths have some valid conclusions, regarding the holistic and individualistic approach to motion sickness. Homoeopathy takes the set of most distinct, individual symptoms into account, which are truly characteristic of the patient forming the basis of prescription which eventually leads to cure. It is hoped that useful information will be gained both on the entity of motion sickness, as well as the homoeopathic approach to its management.

Travel sickness is enough to ruin a perfect getaway, but thankfully homeopathic remedies prove to be very effective and are perfect to carry when travelling. Some of the common homeopathic remedies which can be used as companions when travelling are:

  1. Aconite: This is used when one faces excessive restlessness and fear along with high heat and an urge to cool down with cold drinks.
  2. Borax: Taken when symptoms arise due to a downward movement like during turbulence or sudden dipping of the plane. This sudden movement causes anxiety, fidgeting, distress and confusion. Also, helpful in people who are scared of the dip of the plane during landing.
  3. Cocculus: This can be taken when a person experiences symptoms of nausea, salivation, dizziness and wants to lie down in order to prevent vomiting. If the sight and smell of food makes a person unwell they can also take this medicine.
  4. Nux Vomica: This is used when a person feels nausea, syncope and a feeling of faintness along with being sensitive to even slight movements. In this the person is usually irritable. Other symptoms which are seen in this are constipation or indigestion and a splitting or severe headache.
  5. Petroleum: Used when  person experiences nausea, headache, dizziness, cold sweat, vomiting, extreme hunger or eating disorder along with a feeling of being confused and angry. Usually this condition is worsened by nausea.
  6. Tabacum: This is indicated when people experience extreme motion sickness, to the extent of being pale and a saliva filled mouth. These people might suffer from the severest form of palpitations and nausea. Closing the eyes and breathing fresh and cold air helps to relieve the symptoms.

These are just a few of the commonly used Homeopathic remedies and are mentioned only to create awareness about the effectiveness of Homeopathic medicines in motion sickness. It is not advisable to resort to self-medication for any disease.

Avoiding Motion Sickness

While it may be impossible to prevent all cases of motion sickness, the following tips can help you prevent or lessen the severity of motion sickness:

  1. Watch your consumption of foods, drinks, and alcohol before and during travel. Avoid excessive alcohol and foods or liquids that do not agree with you or make you feel unusually full. Heavy, spicy, or fat-rich foods may worsen motion sickness in some people.

  2. Avoiding strong food odors may also help prevent nausea.

  3. Try to choose a seat where you will experience the least motion.

  4. Do not sit facing backwards from your direction of travel.

  5. Sit in the front seat of a car.

  6. Do not read while traveling if you are prone to motion sickness.

  7. When traveling by car or boat, it can sometimes help to keep your gaze fixed on the horizon or on a fixed point.

  8. Open a vent or source of fresh air if possible.
