Frequent stomach upsets/diarrhoea and gastritisProblems - Indigestion and gastritis, frequent diarrhoea, severe belching and nausea especially in the morning, no abdominal pain [only GAS pain is there at
times], problem persisting from last three years
Better - Warm foods, aloe vera juice, eating spices like cloves, pomegranates, probiotics, ginger or taking herbal meds
Worse - Anxiety (i have a very tight work schedule but i do it happily - so no stress) and Alcohol and processed foods like Pizza
Two years back, it was a continuous problem - was taking antibiotics for some time. Then tried out many medicines.
Nux Vomica helped me a lot, it even cured me for a couple of months. I still take NV 200 on adhoc basis whenever the problem comes [three dilution doses in 1.5 days ]. How long can i take this medicine like this on adhoc basis? Hopefully is not habit forming.
It is very severe, very problematic, especially in summers. Alcohol in the night triggers it straightway in the morning and makes me dehydrated. Also, i sweat a lot and have a very good appetite otherwise especially for sweets.
Either it is anxiety or few exercises which don't suit me or some food allergy.
One doc said IBS but i don't agree after all my thinking on the subject. It looks to be closer to dyspepsia. I just want to know whether it is intestines or liver or gall blader or pancreas which is giving me all the trouble. I am also having a fatty liver, as told by the ultrasound report.
endoscopy, colonoscopy, abdominal x ray, blood and urine tests - all have been normal always. But i have suffered from serious food poisoning at least thrice in last two years.
Looking forward for some serious guidance and all the thanks for going through my mail.

Your remedies are as follows:
Nat Phos 6x dose 3-4 tablets taken immediately after each of 2 meals
Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.
You can expect relief from your ailment hopefully within 24 hours.
Do not eat large meals. Eat small meals but more often if you feel hungry. Do not drink more that a few sips of water after your meals. This is to prevent the further dilution of your gastric juice which can then reflux into your Esophagus which results in GERD.
It is important that you do not go to bed for at least 2 hours after dinner as food will take about this time to digest and it is best to stay awake and upright to enable your food to digest before going to bed.
No fatty food, alcohol, coffee, preserved meats like sausages, ham, bacon as they contain Saltpeter which will antidote the remedies listed immediately.
If you suffer from a stomach ache or you feel your stomach puffing up before a meal during the day between meals this is usually due to hunger pains, caused by your gastric juices attacking the inner wall of your stomach. The simple remedy is to eat some food like a biscuit or a banana to keep the gastric juice away from digesting the stomach wall when you will experience a stomach ache which in some cases can be very acute.
You must drink at least 3 liters of liquids, preferably water daily and you must also exercise for at least half hour daily to sweat it out as this is all part of my therapy to overcome GERD.
The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:
Order the remedy in a 5ml Liquid Alcohol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before sipping a capful of the bottle twice daily.
Please visit the links below which record the cases of other patients whom I have treated for GERD.
STOP using all other drugs and report progress in a week.

I really wanted to know what's the real problem. Why alcohol, when taken in limits, always aggravate my gaseous problem that always result in stomach upset?
If anyone can explain me more on this, it would be a great help to me.

The Nux-vomica is mostly likely just palliating your condition. Over time, this can actually cause more problems for you. The best direction to take would be to have someone take the case carefully and have one medicine prescribed on the whole picture (what we call the totality).

It is important to describe all your problems in as much detail as you are able. One word answers and short sentences are not particularly helpful. Discuss each problem one at a time, providing (as a minimum level of detail) the following information.
1. What exactly happens?
2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.
3. What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring?
4. What creates some relief for the problem?
5. What triggers the problem into occuring?
6. What time of the day or night does the problem occur?
7. When did the problem start? What was happening in your life at that time? Did some specific event or treatment take place just before the problem started?
Move from one problem to the next, doing the same thing. IT IS VITAL THAT YOU GIVE A COMPLETE PICTURE OF YOUR HEALTH BY PROVIDING ALL PROBLEMS YOU HAVE, EVEN IF NOT CONNECTED TO THE MAIN ONE, AND EVEN IF YOU CONSIDER IT OF LESS IMPORTANCE. You should address each problem separately using the above 7 questions as a guide.
As well as this, please describe any traumatic incidents that have taken place in your life. Discuss anything that has had a lasting impact on you mentally, emotionally or physically.
Discuss the way that you manage or deal with your problems, or any problems that occur in your life.
Discuss any patterns you have noticed in your behavior especially concerning your disease.
Discuss any part of your life where you feel stuck or unable to change and grow, especially where this occurred around the beginning of your disease, or as the disease evolved.
Describe your childhood and the kind of environment you grew up in, with reference to your relationships with your family, your school experiences, and any serious childhood diseases.
If your earlier discussions have not mentioned these already, please describe:
1. The specific foods that you crave (not just like) or hate
2. The specific drinks that you crave or hate
3. What your sleep is like
4. How the weather and the temperature affects you
5. What kinds of things in the environment you are particularly sensitive to
6. What your general level of energy is like
7. What your level of sexual energy or desire is like
8. Describe your menstrual cycle
