I am a 20 year old boy having epigastric pain only early in the morning before going to the toilet. I also have a complaint of sticky stools, lower back pain and loss of appetite.

What would be the cause for my problems? Is it curable? Is it due to sexually transmitted diseases? Because,unfortunately, I did homosexual anal sex before two years.

If it is amoebiasis due to homosexual anal sex, can it be cured permanently? Is there any special treatment in ayurveda for that?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Before advising any treatment, I would like to know the following:

  • Since how long have you been complaining of these symptoms?
  • Do you have any sort of abdominal pain or urge for defecation soon after the intake of food?
  • Does the stool have any foul smell or contain mucous, blood etc?
  • How about your build, are you well built?
  • Do you have any vomiting or hemorrhoids or any kind of stress?
  • Do you have any history of other illnesses?

Following are the possibilities according to your complaints:

  1. Dysentery.
  2. Indigestion.
  3. Worm infestation.

You should be careful about the cleanliness during your sexual life.

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

From your complaints I can suggest the following medicines:

Gandharvahasthadi kashayam - mix 15 mL kashaya with 60 mL lukewarm water. Take it in the morning and evening 30 minutes before food in the empty stomach.

Vaiswanara choornam - 5 g powder to be mixed with 60 mL buttermilk and take it 30 minutes before lunch in empty stomach.Also, stick to the following:

  • You should take a diet which contains high fibre such as wheat, oats, etc.
  • Include more buttermilk , curd, idly, dosa, etc., as it contains lactobacillus.
  • Take fruit juices, plenty of water, at least eight glasses per day.
  • Be sure that you get a good appetite before every meal.
  • Take one glass normal water soon after you wake up from bed.
  • Avoid all kinds of spicy, fried items, milk for at least two months.
  • Avoid foods which are hard to digest.

Follow the medicines for two weeks. Continue the diet regimen even after all the symptoms subside.

If the symptoms still persist, consult an ayurveda specialist online --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/ayurveda-specialist
