Yet fixes can be as simple as a disciplined lifestyle. The main culprits for digestive problems can easily be explained in layman’s language as Hurry, worry, and curry.
1) Hurry: A hurried lifestyle where we resort to skipping meals and eating an abundance of fast foods and preserved foods can adversely affect our digestive system.

REFLUX DISORDER/GORD: GORD (gastro-oesophageal reflux disease) is a chronic digestive disorder that occurs when stomach acid flows back into the esophagus, causing symptoms such as heartburn, regurgitation, and chest pain. It is a common condition that affects millions of people worldwide.

Skilled diagnosis and correctly prescribed Homoeopathic medicine acts on proton pump inhibitors or H2 blockers, can also help reduce the amount of stomach acid produced and relieve symptoms.

ULCERS: A stomach ulcer is also a type of peptic ulcer, but it specifically refers to an ulcer that develops in the stomach or the first part of the small intestine (the duodenum). Like gastric ulcers, stomach ulcers are typically caused by the erosion of the stomach or duodenal lining due to excessive acid secretion, bacterial infection, weakened immune system or the use of certain medications such as aspirin and NSAIDs. Symptoms of a stomach ulcer include abdominal pain that is usually described as burning, gnawing or aching pain in the upper abdomen, bloating, heartburn, nausea, and vomiting.

GALLSTONES OR CHOLELITHIASIS: Gallstones are small, hard deposits that can form inside the gallbladder, which is a small organ located beneath the liver. The gallbladder stores bile, a fluid that helps digest fats, and releases it into the small intestine during digestion. However, when bile contains too much cholesterol or other substances, it can crystalize into solid particles and eventually form into gallstones.

Symptoms of gallstones can include:

– Pain in the upper right or center of the abdomen
– Nausea and vomiting
– Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes)
– Fever or chills
– Clay-colored stool

Gallstones may not cause any symptoms and can be discovered during routine medical tests. However, if they become lodged in a bile duct, they can cause more severe symptoms and potentially lead to serious complications such as pancreatitis. Treatment for gallstones may include medication to dissolve the stones, and expel them in stool

JAUNDICE: Another common digestive issue is icterus, also known as jaundice.Jaundice is a yellowish discoloration of the skin and mucous membranes due to altered liver function and elevated levels of serum bilirubin.
