Question: I am fealing severe abdominal pain in lower abdomen for last 3 days, it starts and stops itself after some time. i am taking balanced diet and no overeating at all. My age is 31 years old and can this pain due to long sitting hours? or it can be stone problem also? I do have gas some time but do not have constipation. please suggest ayurvedic / herbal remedy for the abdominal pain I have.

Answered by Dr.Vijay : Hello, Abdominal pain may come due to many reasons. As per your question, it may be due to indigestion. If there is excess flatulence, that may also affect your digestive system and may cause abdominal pain. There are many home remedies and alternative therapies for stomach pain. One should follow strict diet to control this problem. Avoid the food items which may cause gas or flatus, they may include potato, sweet potato, etc. One should consume small meals when required. In ayurveda, it is explained that one should divide the stomach in to 4 parts (assuming) and 2 parts should be dedicated for solid food, one part should be dedicated for liquid diet, and one part should be dedicated for air. This method is to enhance digestion. Asafetida or HIng can be used along with warm water to reduce stomach pain related with flatus. If still pain is persists, one should consult doctor immediately and do the needful. You can use Gastric Trouble package medicine for the same complaint. For further queries, you can contact us. With regards, Dr.Vijay.

Answered by Dr.Ramani : The digestion is sometimes impaired after typhoid. The intestines will be affected and if proper care with healthy diet is not taken, it could also affect the metabolism. As with the increased SGPT, please let me know the other liver function test or ultrasound of the abdomen to guide you further. The dimension of liver is approximately close to 14.5+or-1.6cm in men and the report is within the normal limit. It is also important to know the cause of reduced haemoglobin with complete blood count. The normal haemoglobin must be between 140g/L -160g/L. Please check after 3months and then review. Ayurvedic medicines like Patola Katurohinyadi kvath - 15ml with 60ml of warm water before food twice daily and Divya Arogya vardhini vati can be taken for a month and then checked again.

Question: Hello Doc i believe i am suffering from alopecia . i am hypothyrodic . i am taking kanchanar guggulu . 1 tablet twice daily it is causing me constipation . before i used to take 2 tablets twice now i reduced to 1 cos of constipation. i have almost tried all the hair treatments available . i am 24 yrs and my parents are searching groom for me . i used bhringyadi hair oil with no good effects . i apply every week methi powder still no improvements . i used unani medicine roghan zarareeh for almost 1 month with not even a slightest improvement so i stopped it . now i am trying castor oil at the alopecia area daily night, and i have bath weekly once . i use patanjali shampoo ( anti dandruff). plz suggest that my hair becomes thick

Answered by Dr.Ramani : Alopecia areata is the loss of hair in specific areas as patches in the scalp. How long are you having the problem? Hair usually grows within 1year. It happens when there is less immunity, hypothyroidism, vitiligo or due to other inflammatory conditions. Sometimes there will be genetic involvement also. There is a problem with the hairfollicles to promote the growth of hair. So it requires a stimulation. Fry Triphala churnam in a pan and then massage the area with the powder for 5-10min. Regarding Kanchanara guggulu, as it is astringent in taste it may constipate, but because of other ingredients it will not affect much if you follow a good diet with more fiber and exercise. You can take Agastya Rasayanam - 1tsp before food twice daily, Trichups tablets which will improve the growth of hair and reduce constipation also. Please continue with the oil, shampoo. Please let me know after 3months. Dr.Ramani.
