Dear,

A.
1. regarding your stomach irritation it could be possible gastritis, bile reflux, or infection, due to your touring job and irregular food habits, so please mention about the symptoms which you experience other than fullness of stomach (gas balloon) and dislike of taking food, such as abdominal pain, indigestion, hiccups, burning sensation in epigastrium while taking meals, even food allergies or lactose intolerance can contribute to stomach irritation (please tell if any)
2. You haven't mentioned about use of any substance abuse which may contribute to the Pathology like: use of alcohol, tea, coffee, spicy food, cigarette smoking, any physical/mental stress or excessive use of pain killers.

B.
1. Because there is no fixed regime of taking food, irregular habits result in fermentation of ingested food resulting in formation of hydrogen and carbon dioxide resulting in gas formation and stomach upset, moreover stress disturbing the nervous system causing stomach and intestinal problems.

C.

1. as far as your bad odor from perspiration is concerned, it could be due to over stress, high lipid level, excess use of hot and spicy food, use of nicotine-caffeine in any form, or simply being overweight can result in bad odor, although your history suggest your weight normal to height but again make sure that you are not carrying too much weight around your body.

D.
As far as your male pattern baldness is concerned, it could be anything from genetic (family history), to medicines, thyroid problem or some underlying disease like diabetes (please make sure that your thyroid function test and blood sugar levels are within normal limit.

E.
Treatment;
i. is upper GI endoscopy been done in your case to rule out any gastric pathology?
ii. is H.Pylori infection and Hemoglobin level and stool test carried out/
iii. Avoid food which take more time to digest or irritate stomach mucosa like: cabbage/ sprouts, onions, asparagus, pears, apples, peaches,chewing gum,milk products,fruit juice,vinegar,alcohol, caffeine,greasy-spicy-refined foods.
iv. regarding bad odor, avoid onion,garlic and strong spices in your food along with alcohol,caffeine and tobacco, fruits and vegetables that contains soluble fibers like whole grains beans and legumes.
v. avoid eating food in hurry because that will lead to more AIR been swallowed with your food resulting in ballooning of stomach
vi. Male pattern baldness is difficult to cure with medications, because problem lies within the Stem cells, consult a Trichologist for the same.
vii. take tablet Gasex of himalaya company 2 tablet thrice a day after food to combat excessive bloating of stomach.
viii. A good Prescription for your associted symptoms is:
1. narikel khanda 20gm
avipattikar churna 3gm with honey
2. leelavilas ras 125mg
trifla mandur 250mg
muktashukti pishti 125mg with trifla kwath (decoction) 3 times a day.
3. You can take Draksharisht or Patoladi kwath im morning to increase your appetite and irritation symptoms.

Dear Mr

It seem obvious then the main cause of symptoms arising in you are due to faulty and irregular food habits, so make sure you stick to a regular regime among the following (if possible):

1. Avoid oily food, aerated drinks, and over eating, instead take regular moderate meals.Avoid swallowing of air i.e. sipping tea, chewing gum, aerated drinks.
2. Eat slowly, avoid haste, chew properly.
3. Avoid onions, peas, beans.
4. Close the mouth while belching
5. Abdominal exercises to improve the tone of abdominal muscles in case of chronic stomach ballooning is/are very useful like: straight leg raising, sit ups, walking, jogging
6.eating a little less than demanded by appetite is important.
7.the mentioned drug combination and decoction in previous reply is sufficient for your problem.
8.
i.If attack of tonsillitis are frequent: you should strengthen your immune system by taking Tablet Septilin (Himalaya) 2 tab twice a day for three months.
ii. In Acute stage you can take "Kapardak" Bhasm 500mg with fresh milk cream thrice a day......As this Bhasm is very sharp in nature make sure that milk cream is sufficient in quantity otherwise in less quantity the Bhasm will cause severe burning sensation in mouth.
iii. Gargles with Tankan (borax) Bhasm or Trifla Churan are very effective, and sucking of Khadiradi vati as lozenges are useful.

Thanks for your concern
