Distention of abdomen Treatment
Abdominal distension happens when air (gas) or fluid accumulate in the abdomen. This causes the abdomen to expand outwardly beyond the normal girth of stomach and waist. It is rather a symptom of an underlying cause than a disease. A major cause of abdominal bloating is excessive eating or air swallowing. Other causes include inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, diabetes, functional dyspepsia or transient constipation.
Homeopathy can effectively treat bloated abdomen or causes that lead to it. They can provide complete recovery by striking at the root of the problem and preventing any recurrence. The pain, burning or any associated symptoms will also disappear with the use of the homeopathic remedies.
If the obstruction persists, abdominal pain and tenderness will increase and you may experience nausea and vomiting. If left untreated, diverticulitis can lead to serious complications that require surgery, including: Abscesses may form around the infected diverticula.
