Ayurveda Naturally for Hyperacidity

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Ayurveda

Ayurveda Naturally for Hyperacidity

In the case of hyperacidity, gastric acid secretion from glands of stomach increases. The excess amount of acid causes a burning sensation in an upper part of the abdomen. According to Ayurveda, it is known as amlapitta. In ayurveda, the pitta dosha includes whole enzymatic, hormonal secretions and digestive juices of the body. In amlapitta, pitta dosha which is bitter increases and gets vitiated due to wrong dietary habits and lifestyle. This vitiated pitta dosha becomes sour (amla) in taste, that's why it is called amlapitta. Normally this pitta helps in digestion of food but in vitiated form it does not complete the digestive process and causes indigestion. This undigested food causes toxin formation.

Causes of hyperacidity

1) excessive physical and mental stress.

2) pitta aggravating diet like spicy, salty and fried food.

3) excessive intake of citrus fruits.

4) excessive exposure to heat like wandering in sun heat.

5) prolonged fasting.

6) modern medicine considers h. Pylori infection as the most common cause of hyperacidity.

Symptoms of amlapitta

1) burning sensation in the chest is the cordial feature of amlapitta.

2) sour eructation, bloating, abdomen distension especially after meals.

3) indigestion of the taken meals.

Management of amlapitta at sukhayurveda

1) detoxify

Hyperacidity starts when accumulated toxins begin to disrupt functions of the digestive system. We at sukhayurveda cure underlying root causes like indigestion, constipation, gastritis etc. And provide natural recommendations to remove and help prevent toxin accumulation from:

A) hard to digest food

B) poor digestion

C) poor elimination

D) mental and physical stress

Sukhayurveda detoxifying therapies for amlapitta include abhyangam full body massage, therapeutic purgation etc.

2) proper nutrition

As amlapitta is the disease of the digestive system, so, proper diet has a key role in its treatment. We at sukhayurveda provide proper diet chart to the patients of amlapitta. Pitta pacifying food is recommended. Avoid curd, citrus fruits, tomatoes, excessive salt, tea, coffee, spices and favor foods that are easy-to-digest, nourishing, cleanse the physiology, strengthen digestion and balance your body's inner intelligence. Sukhayurveda consultant advises:

A) proper use of spices and cooking oils

B) herbal preparations to improve digestion

C) proper spacing between breakfast, lunch and dinner

D) favoring foods which stimulate digestion

E) reducing consumption of foods that depress digestion

F) proper food combinations to avoid indigestion

G) non-dietary regiments to improve digestive strength including exercise, specific yoga asanas etc.

3) Ayurveda herbs

We at sukhayurveda also provide proper herbal formulations for hyperacidity and to cure its underlying cause also like constipation, indigestion, excessive stress, gastritis etc. Drugs which are pitta pacifying and improving digestion are used mainly. Amla, mulethi, draksha, kshar, shankh, shukti are mainly used to cure hyperacidity.

4) stress management

Excessive mental and physical stress also is a causative factor for hyperacidity. We at sukhayurveda also provide stress relieving programs. Our destress therapies include shirodhara, takradhara, ksheerdhara, aromatherapy, oil massage etc. Stress causes increased gastric acid secretions causing hyperacidity and it also interferes with digestive process causing indigestion. Enhancing body's ability to recover from stress is an integral part of our approach to health and well-being.

5) lifestyle and daily routine

One of the most important factors for maintaining proper health is to have a lifestyle that does not disturb body's natural rhythms. Sukhayurveda consultant reviews daily routine and creates a daily schedule that will increase balance in physiology and aid in the healing of the body. Avoid excess exposure to heat. Never lie down immediately after taking meals.

Strengthening the body's natural healing and self-repair mechanisms

We at sukhayurveda not only aim to cure the disease but also to cure the underlying causative factors. We boost one's inner power to fight with diseases naturally. The healing response is one of the most complex and coordinated activity within the human physiology and often cannot be strengthened significantly without a comprehensive natural approach.

Taking together all the sukhayurveda programs described above, aim to create the ideal mental, physical and behavioral environment for healing.

Mr. lybrate-user, Gestational diabetes is a condition that occurs when a lady is pregnant and high blood glucose is detected during weeks of pregnancy. This is not seen in males. It is possible you may be having diabetes itself or a prediabetic condition. If blood glucose levels are mentioned then I may be able to say what is the situation. As regards acne, some times that problem does continue for quite some time. Thanks.

Dear lybrate user, *while suffering from gas and indigestion due to spicy or fatty food, having fennel seeds can help cure your problem. The oil contained in fennel seeds reduces nausea and controls flatulence. Dry, roast and grind fennel seeds to make a powder. Take half teaspoon of this powder twice a day along with water. You will see some results.

First rule out the cause of Acidity then only the the remedies will work . Tea coffee , late night sleep , sedentary life style , fried reheated ,maida ,spicy ,tea, coffee are the cause of acidity . Long gap of eating skipping breakfast or late breakfast or over eating is also cause of Acidity . So you have to check what are your causes and stop that practice . Start Taking 1/2 tea spoon Amala powder with water on empty stomach . Take coriander tea . If Symptoms still persists the consult an Ayurveda for consultation and medicines

Types Of Ulcerative Colitis Surgery

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, Fellowship in Laparoscopic and Robotic Onco-Surgery, Fellowship in bariatric surgery, F.I.A.G.E.S
General Surgeon, Delhi
Types Of Ulcerative Colitis Surgery

Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammatory condition whereby, tiny abscesses and ulcers are formed on the inner lining of the large intestine, or on the colon or rectum. These ulcers may burst frequently resulting in diarrhea and bloody stools. This disease may also be responsible for causing anemia as well as harsh abdominal pain.

Ulcerative colitis normally alternate periodically from flaring up to receding quickly. These periods of remission can either last for weeks or maybe, even for years at a stretch. They are, however, not permanent and although the disease may seem to have disappeared completely, it can soon show up again in no time. Usually beginning in the rectum, it can, by and by, spread rapidly to other parts of the colon. If it is, however, limited only to the rectum, then it is more commonly referred to as ulcerative proctitis.

Surgery is generally obligatory and mandatory when it comes to treating ulcerative colitis. If surgery is not performed, you may suffer from long-lasting side effects, including cancer and colon rupture. Here are the different types of surgery that you may undergo:

  1. Colectomy: This is done when the entire colon needs to be removed and is usually performed to eliminate the perils of acquiring colon cancer.
  2. Proctocolectomy: This concerns the total removal of both colon and rectum and is usually the standard procedure when dealing with ulcerative colitis.
  3. Ileal Pouch Anal Anastomosis: If the treatment does not require a permanent stoma, and if you can still manage to let out stool from your anus, then this surgery, also called restorative proctocolectomy would be most appropriate.

Here, both colon and rectum are removed, but at the same time, the small intestine is utilized to form an internal reservoir, called a J-pouch, which is linked to the anus and can hereafter serve as your new rectum.
