A 26 year old hairstylist walked into the clinic complaining of chronic nausea, acidity, acid reflux, recurrent vomiting and stomach pain after meals, and acute constipation for the past 3 months .
His habits included eating once / twice a day, frequent cups of tea and coffee and alcohol every day. He had routinely been having midnight snacks of spicy and fried food for over 5 years. He exercises every day.
He was on antacids and prescription medications but that only gave mild relief. His habits definitely seemed to deteriorate his condition.
His meals consisted of a mixed diet including a lot of non vegetarian food.
