Hello There. I can u understand your concern. you have mentioned that you have a thyroid problem. what kind of problem do you have and are you taking any medicines for it? you could be suffering from hypothyroidism which would require treatment and some of your symptoms may resolve once you get your thyroid treated. apart from that, have a high protein, high fiber diet. have your meals at regular intervals and instead of having three huge meals, have 5 smaller meals and let two of these meals be entirely of fruits and vegetables only. drink lots of water. practice yoga, suryanamaskar everyday. tab. bisacodyl 2mg two tablets before bed every night for 5 days. best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain.

Hello. Maintain regular timings for your food intake. Eat the food when it is hot. Do not consume more cold and chilled food and avoid deep fried food. Use Khichdi made up of moong dal and rice often to reduce the ill effects of spicy food. Drink churned buttermilk after your lunch and dinner whenever possible and drink a glassful of diluted milk at bed time. Regularly practice Suryanamaskar for 6 to 12 rounds early in the morning by 6AM and avoid late night wake ups and early morning sleeps. Drink warm water along with your food. If you have a habit of using maida preparations, avoid them as far as possible. Good luck.

Do not take meftal spas . Drink lot of water & lemon or any citrus fruit juice. Do regular exercises. Keep bed time & get up time same for all days. Do not consume fast food. See the difference.
