Hmmmmm, that is quite a long time

went for homeopathy and it was useful til she continued with the course of medication. You know it rquires time and patience with homeopathy
What I know about homeopathy is that it is useless

By constipation do you mean hard stools for two or three days

Yes this also...sometimes blood also comes due to local injury

"Yes - complete inability to pass stools for 2-3 days"
May I know your wife's age
How many children do you have?

All the above symptoms are a part of one disease complex
we need to identify the exact cause for the acid peptic disease in your wife's case
the commonest causes in such long standing cases are
Pls advise some medicines
2. hiatus hernia
4. faulty diet habits
Yes you are right at point no 4..."Faulty Diet Habits"
I want you to understand one important thing
this is an online forum, so I don't have the advantage of examining the patients
She quite often bunks her breakfast and irregular sleeping habits
what important thing are you refering to which i need to understand?
that means It is not ethical to advice you medicines
now coming to what you can do about your problems
ok...so what do you advise finally...? do we need to go and XXXXXXX a doctor physically?
1. Check the diet
that means, you need to make sure she does not eat fatty
and spicy foods
she should avoid oily and fried foods
she should also avoid eating junk foods
no junk food is consumed here...
and fast foods
she likes outside chinese...
next thing is incorporate plenty of fresh fruits and fresh vegetables in the diet
Avoid chinese foods also
she should eat plenty of green leafy vegetables
and she should eat at regular intervals
maintaining timing and a routine is very important
she should eat small meals but more frequently ant regular intervals
she does not sleep properly at night which she compensates by getting up late and sleeping during day time...this leads her to skip her breakfast more iften than not..
for example, instead of three large meals
she should eat 5 or 6 small meals at an interval of 4 to 6 hours
this will help in digestion and also keeps her stomach healthy
next step is to consult a gastroenterologist
She may need to undergo some basic tests like blood tests
we stay in south delhi and will try to fix an apointment with some doctor...can we fix an appointment with some doctor through this online portal called healthcare Magic?
breath ammonia test and an endoscopy to see if she has developed any ulcers in the stomach or any changes in the esophagus
If you have the option of "fix an appointment" on your dashboard, then yes you can ask the customer care team to help you with fixing an appointment
Thanks so much for your advise...Yes I do have this option on my dashboard
Once you get these basic tests done to find out the exact nature of the disease an appropriate medicines or any other method of treatment can be decided
finding out the exact cause of the problem is the most important thing in treating any disease
so please follow all the dietary recommendations I made
