You can face a number of digestive problems if you have a sedentary lifestyle, or work for long hours, take a lot of stress, consume rich and spicy foods or too much of alcohol, tea or coffee. The most common problem which you might face is acidity. Homeopathy, being a non-toxic form of medication, can be extremely helpful considering you are not living a healthy lifestyle.
Here are a few homeopathic treatments you can use when you are suffering from the specific ailments mentioned below:
1. Formation of Gas: Although some amount of gas formation is expected during digestion, too much of it is embarrassing and discomforting. Carbo vegetabilis is one of the most common homeopathic medicines used to treat gas attacks. It can also be used to treat bloating after having a meal, abdominal pain, and the condition where the abdomen hardens due to excess gas formation.
2. Acidity and Heartburn: Usually, you feel a burning sensation near your breastbone when you are suffering from acidity or heartburn. This happens when certain stomach juices react with the esophagus and irritate its lining. Usually, to treat this condition, a medicine called Natrum carb is used. Calculated dosage of “natrum carb” will help calm down the reaction taking place in the esophagus, and relieve you from the discomfort.
3. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS): Irritable bowel syndrome is a condition where you suffer from prolonged periods of abdominal pains, constipation, and bloating. Most homeopathic doctors prescribe Aurum Metallicum to treat the condition. It helps your abdomen to calm down.
4. Crohn’s Disease: China officinalis is used to treat this condition. Crohn’s disease is a condition where the patient suffers from acute abdominal pain with diarrhea with blood discharge. China officinalis relieves you of the discomfort and pain.
