Excessive Gas Formation Gas forms when bacteria in colon ferment the foods that are not digested in the small intestine. Unfortunately, healthy high-fibre food are often the worst offenders. Foods that commonly lead to formation of gas while being digested include some fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, peas, etc. Carbonated beverages like soda and beer also cause excessive gas formation. Too much gas formation can lead to sharp abdominal pains, cramps or intense bloating of the abdomen. This can affect anyone at any age. All people experience this problem during their lifetime. Regular consumption of junk food, lack of sleep, stress, tension and a hurried life – all contribute to excessive gas formation.  Most gastrointestinal problems are chronic by nature and can keep on recurring.

Hyperacidity Hyperacidity is a medical condition in which the stomach secretes excessive Hydrochloric acid (HCL). Our stomach is protected by a lining that prevents the stomach muscles from coming in contact with the acid. But when too much acid is released, it erodes the lining and harms the stomach muscles, leading to a burning sensation. This condition is known as Hyperacidity and is generally triggered by spicy or junk foods, stressed lifestyle, various medications, alcohol, smoking, fasting and ageing. The problem has assumed alarming proportions in modern times. If the condition is not controlled, it can badly damage the lining of the stomach leading to ulcers and even Cancer. Most gastrointestinal problems are chronic by nature and can keep on recurring. However, 'Naturoveda Health World' succe  Read More

Patients suffering from dysentery experience mild to severe stomach pain along with cramps. While the disease itself is not life threatening, excess loss of fluids can become fatal. On the basis of the antibody responsible, there are two main types of dysentery: Bacillary dysentery and Amoebic dysentery. The former is caused by the bacterium Shigella while the latter is caused by Entamoeba histolytica. Bacillary dysentery is more common than Amoebic dysentery.
