Dear Ishra sachdeva
First of all we would like to suggest you, not to skip your meal ever. When we eat food it directly goes to the Stomach. Our Stomach secrets digestive juices, that help in digestion. But when you do not eat food for a long time, your Stomach secrets gastric juices in excess. As a result, it will irritate your Stomach lining and causes Acidity. It not only causes Acidity but also give rise to the following Disorders.
1. Low Blood Sugar
2. Lack of Energy
3. Lack of Nutrients
4.Will affect your Physical and Mental Health.
5. Digestive Disorders
6. Stomach Ulcers So we advise you not to skip your meals. Eat Healthy Stay Healthy :-)

Dear sir
I am 32 years old woman. Am handicapped. Gas goes into my right thigh. During night time my leg freezing because of this gas pain. Am taking omega 3 supplement. Am non vegetarian. Please suggest me to get rid of the gas problem.
06 Jun 2016
Dear Mookabika
I have never heard about this thing before. I think you should take a healthy diet and avoid non veg food for some time. Then see results if you find any positive change in your body. Avoid eating heavy meals at night. Drink a lot of water and also do some breathing exercises or some yoga asans that you can easily do. It will improve the blood circulation in your body and provide oxygen to every cell in your body.
