Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you.

I would like to have some more information before I can give my opinion.

What exactly do you mean by gastric problem?
What symptoms you have?
Is there anything that relieves or worsens your symptom?
Are you on any medications?
Do you have any medical illness like diabetes?

Kindly get back to me with these information and I would give my opinion.

Patient replied :

unclear bowel since last two years. I don't have diabetes. Last time i.e. 1 month back i have visited one of the reknown gastroentrologist at Guwahati, Dr. Kamal Chettri, after examining all the reports, he simply gave me some but did not cured. Till now I have consulted three gastroentrologist of North East (Dr. B.D. Goswami, Dr. Sangeet Dutta and Dr. Kamal Chettri). Whatever medicines they give that cured me perfectly but after 8/10 days medicines did not work and same problem continues (unclear bowel) I am a vegetarian and even bowling food also creates gas. Except gastric medicines, i did not take other medicines.

Thanks for providing more details about your health issues.
I presume by unclear bowel, you mean constipation.
For good bowel movements, you need to take high fiber diet( vegetables & fruits), fiber supplements like ( lactifiber) and drink plenty of fluids. You should exercise regularly or at least increase your physical activity. You should try to avoid constipation causing medications like cough syrup and antidepressants.
To prevent gas, you need to avoid gas forming food items like beans, cabbage etc The fiber supplements themselves can sometimes cause increased gas. Take digestive enzymes supplements and probiotics.
For persistent constipation , get a colon transit study done.
I hope that answers your question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

Patient replied :

Sir, this problem started from the day of taking lunch at a HIghway Hotel two years back. Is their any chances of having any bacteria on that food and still contain in my stomach.

Thank you sir for your valuable advice. Can you tell me which is the best digestive enzymes supplements and probiotics.

Thanks for getting back to me with ore questions.
No, it is unlikely to still have the bacterial infection which you presume you would have acquired 2 years ago.

You can take Digestal and VSL#3.
