How To Get Rid Of Bacteria In My Gut
Candida: You cannot and should not try. This yeast is a common inhabitant of the intestinal tract and will remain there despite efforts to remove it. Am familiar with theories about the yeast syndrome (which have little or any scientific basis), but leave your gut flora alone unless you have become ill. And then treat only after being seen and diagnosed by a doctor. ...Read more
Prevent trigger: See prior answers relating to these for much more discussion. Each person usually finds that certain things trigger them, e.g. Citrus fruits, lack of sleep, weight loss, iron, vitamin B12 or Folic Acid deficiency, trauma, braces. There are some systemic diseases associated with these: crohn's, behcets, celiac disease. Also think of hot drinks. Oragel topically or antiviral rx early on may help. ...Read more
Fungus?: I think what you mean is foot fungus. This is easily treated with over the counter creams like clotrimazole or miconazole. Treat both feet including the ankles even if these areas are not affected. To reduce the chance of reinfection keep feet dry since the fungus requires a damp environment to thrive. Dilute bleach is quite effective at disinfecting surfaces. Toenail fungus is more complex. ...Read more
Good & bad ways: I'M ALL FOR IT IF by "cleanse" you mean adopting a healthy lifestyle with routine exercise, cutting out tobacco, reducing alcohol & sugary drinks, minimizing highly processed foods & fats, & adding in lean proteins, whole fruits, vegetables, & nuts. DON'T DO IT IF instead you mean taking some fad diet, enema, colonic, or purgative to lose weight or supposedly rid your body of unspecified "toxins." ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Better to prevent: A partial thickness burn is characterized by blister formation. Having treated burns for 25+ years, my advice is to unroof the blister and expose the raw surface underneath. This eliminates the possibility of the blister fluid becoming infected and converting the burn to full thickness. Wash with soap/water 1-2x/day, apply Bacitracin ointment and a dry dressing. If infected, see a doctor. ...Read more
1st, why RU gassy?: Feeling full of "gas" may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks). Sometimes its more complicated--a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, and pelvic pathology outside the gut. ...Read more
See doc: First and foremost this should be seen by a doc- there are cancers that can appear like a cellulitis. Assuming it is not, appropriate antibiotics, warm compress, drainage of any underlying abscess( which may require ultrasound for diagnosis), and likely also mammogram to rule out malignancy. Smoking can also lead to inflammation and should be stopped. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Time for simethicone: Many antacids work by neutralizing stomach acid. Some contain simethicone that helps break up gas bubbles in your stomach. One floats on top of acid so it "coats" as the acid is refluxed. Magnesium-containing ones can promote diarrhea; calcium-containing ones can increase acid! If gas bubbles pose a frequent problem, evaluation may be key to rule out causes, including delayed stomach emptying. ...Read more
LO salt, need help!: Fluid in lungs (pulmonary edema) can be due to many causes: heart failure, kidney failure, liver failure.... Pulmonary edema is usually treated with water pills (diuretics) and low salt diet. Depedending on the exact cause other medications may help: e.g. Coreg (carvedilol) for heart failure.. Management of pulmonary edema usually requires a physician team expert in internal medicine problems. ...Read more
Infection: Without knowing what you mean by "naturally" it is difficult to answer. As a general rule any bacterial infection requiring treatment will respond to appropriate antibiotics but seldom if ever to otc non-antibacterial preparations. ...Read more
Burp!: Or you can try over-the -counter gas-x which is simethecone which breaks apart the gas bubbles making them less painful! also avoid foods that make it worse. And, don't chew gum, that makes you swallow quite a bit of air. ...Read more
Many factors: There is no one correct answer that can be given to you, over the internet, sight unseen. Bonding, orthodontics, laminates, and crowns are a few choices depending on the size of the space, your bite, and the condition of the teeth. Your best answer will be given to you by the dentist who is going to treat you. Give them a call. ...Read more
Treat the cause: If it is viral (herpes infection), use Acyclovir or antiviral medication. If canker sore (apthuous ulcer), keep clean to prevent bacterial infection and it will resolve in 5 days or use laser treatment. If caused by trauma due to cheek or tongue biting, treat the occlusion (grinding, adjust occlusion, or crowns). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
