    impressive post I love this kind of amazing posting.

  • I have had acidity and gas problem. It was due to hyper acidity, the doctor said. I got treated with ayurvedic doctor and used some medicine from patanjali Ayurveda center.
    Then I had some relief.
    After some months, I am having random pinch in stomach. It causes difficulties. My appetite is also being lost. If I do pranayam more then I eat more otherwise I eat less amount unlike previous.
    So what could be the causes for this? Please give me some suggestions.
    Thanks in advance!
