Ayurvedic / Herbal Advice on Acidity

Question: I am 32 years old and 10 weeks pregnant and have too much acidity problem. Because of acidity too much vomiting and severe stomach pain. Doctor's advised few tablets but nothing is working out. Somebody suggested about Lavan Bhaskar churna. Would like to know is it safe to take Lavan Bhaskar churan in pregnancy?

Answered by Dr.Jilsy : Hello, Thanks for your inquiry and congrats that you are pregnant. Lavana Bhaskar churna is a good medicine for acidity,gas trouble etc. But it is safe not to take during pregnancy.So you please dont take it. Instead you can take Divya Satavari churna-1/2 tsp twice daily with milk. When you wake up in morning take 1/2 glass water with 1 tsp honey and 1/2 tsp Amla juice(gooseberry). Whenever you feel acidity chew a piece of Jaggery or few almonds and eat it. Eat smaller meals with rice or easily digestible foods. Include cucumber,watermelon,banana,apple and almonds in diet. Avoid spicy foods and fried foods,brinjal,chillies,pickles and caffeines like tea and coffee should not be taken.Curd should be avoided at night. Continue this for 1 week and let me know the current condition. Thanks and regards.

Question: heloo..i'm 22 year problem is l'm suffering from acidity early in the morning everyday and if i don't eat for some time then my taste turns into rificously very bad and it starts smell very badly so please help me out to get rid of this bad breath problem..

Answered by Dr.Ramani : Acidity triggers the bad odor as the food is not digested properly in the stomach and there will be delay with the movement. There is also a tendency to regurgitate which will increase the acidity in the mouth. Poor oral hygiene leads to the accumulation of bacteria in the tongue and between the teeth leading to a bad smell. Ayurvedic medicines like Indu kantha kvath - 15ml with 60ml of warm water before food twice daily, Triphala Churna and Divya Amlapittantak tablet for acidity can be taken for a month and then reviewed. Divya Dant Kanti Tooth paste can be used as a tooth paste. Gargling with lemon water will also be beneficial as it will clean the mouth. Include cucumber, yoghurt, apple, carrot, parsley, mint leaves, basil leaves, fennel seeds, cardamom and clove. Reduce excess sugar, spicy and cold foods. Try to include fiber and complex carbohydrates which will not make you hungry quickly and try to eat smaller quantities of food more frequently. Exercising regularly and drinking enough water will be beneficial.

Question: sir/madam, Age:31 Gender: female I got married in dec 15th 2011, but I have no childrens yet now, now we are planning for childrens, the main problem is white discharge, it is thicky, so many people said if white is discharging you cannot get pregnancy, is it real, i have seen a doctor she gave 12 tablets to use then it will control, then there is no itching problem to me, but there is acidity from one month. please give home remedies to cure.

Answered by Dr.Saurabh : Dear Madam, First of all don't take any stress of getting pregnant. Yes, White discharge is a big issue which may affect your reproductive system. Let's find the root cause first. If it is due to poor hygiene practices then please make the genitals area clean by properly washing it. If its not the reason then there is definitely some disorder with your digestion and absorption system. If you have excessive white discharge then according to ayurveda, the satva of your body is lacking and so you have to be careful and start some herbs right away. Please start with Divya Patrangasava as 20 ml with 20 ml water after all three meals and Femiplex tablets as two tablets twice daily with water before meals. Also you can take chaval ka maand (rice water) to take the tablets which will help in better recovery. tc Dr Saurabh
