Infant reflux: This is actually a very common condition, but rarely is it really a problem. Infants are prone to spitting up like this — they eat a liquid diet, are laying down a lot, and have underdeveloped valves that help keep the stomach contents from coming back up again. All of these things improve with time. The more important question is whether he is growing and gaining weight. If he is, don't worry! ...Read more

Can milk thistle strengthen digestive system? I had my lft test and that was ok. But still. My digestion is slow and weak?

Not particularly but: Milk thistle has many benefits for liver function and may somewhat improve digestion of fats by improving gallbladder function. But slow weak digestion may be related to issues with your stomach or pancreas and milk thistle has no effect on these. You might be low in hydrochloric acid or digestive enzymes. Herbal formulas like triphala can improve digestion. I advise consulting a holistic doctor. ...Read more

The : The most important thing you left out in your post is if you have seen a medical professional for this problem. If not that needs to be done asap. The easy simple answer here would be gas.

To answer your question, "is it anything serious" is very difficult. The most worrisome thing would be a tumor (benign or cancerous) but that is not very likely. However, in order to get to the bottom of this you need a medical work up.
Best of luck. ...Read more
