  • My mother has a problem of impacted stools. What can we do for it?

    It will depend on how long the problem has existed. If it is a recent problem you can try using a mineral oil enema from the drug store followed by a bottle of Magnesium citrate. It is important to drink 5-6 glasses of water daily to keep the stools soft. If the problem has been going on for more than 3 weeks I would take her to the doctor to make sure she does not have a partial obstruction. READ MORE

  • How can I stop burping?

    Burping is commonly associated with acid reflux. Do not lay down for 3 hours after eating. Try Prilosec OTC 30 min before breakfast for a couple of weeks. If the problem continues see your doctor. READ MORE
