Emergency Medicine Specialist Dr. R.A. Singh's  Response
Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your query, I would like to suggest that you should take an antacid like Omeprazole 40 mg along with Domperidone 30 mg once a day before meals.

A digestive enzyme preparation containing pepsin and fungal diastase will also be helpful.

Following precautions will be helpful :-
1. Avoid spicy and oily foods.
2. Do not miss a meal.
3. Avoid smoking and alcohol.
4. Drink lots of water daily.
5. You should do exercise daily in fresh air.
6. Yoga and meditation will be helpful.
7. Always lead a positive life.

I hope this is helpful to you.
