Ayurvedic Remedies for Acidity

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), Diploma in Piles Treatment , MD - Ayurveda

Ayurvedic Remedies for Acidity

The acids help the body dissolve the food particles and also break it down to more basic elements. However, when the body produces too much acid, it causes acid reflux which can cause discomfort. Too much acid within the body, which is also known as hyperacidity, can be caused by a multitude of factors.

Known and effective Ayurvedic cures: Ayurveda considers acidity to be a 'Pitta' problem and it can be corrected by following certain simple steps. There are other food ingredients which are also used as remedial tools. Let's have a look at some of the dos and don'ts of Ayurvedic remedies for acidity.

Don'ts for acidity according to Ayurveda:

1. Limit junk food and other foods, which are very heavy in fats and processed items: Most processed foods and junk food usually made in stores contain unhealthy fats. The stomach needs to produce more acid in order to digest them and thus may end up causing acidity.

2. Stop excessive consumption of tea, coffee: Stop consumption of caffeinated beverages such as tea, coffee and other caffeine injected drinks which may encourage the production of more stomach acids.

3. Stop the consumption of alcohol and cooperates: Apart from being generally bad for health as both of these are known contributors of cancers, they can even affect smaller day to day functions and can lead to acidity.

4. Don't consume foods which are high in acidic content: If you tend to like food which is very high in acidic content, it is advisable to limit its consumption. Some examples of this are:

  1. Vinegar
  2. Curds
  3. Pickles
  4. Tamarinds
  5. Sour citrus fruits
  6. Salty fried foods

Dos for acidity according to Ayurveda:
There are multiple solutions for acidity in Ayurveda which have been known cures for generations. Let's take a look at some of these.

  1. Do have meals on time: It is best to not skip meals as this can cause the acidity levels within the stomach to rise if it doesn't have any food to digest. It is especially harmful to skip breakfast and then have a heavy lunch to compensate.
  2. Do have amla or Indian gooseberry: This is a very effective weapon against acidity and chewing a few morsels will easily cure the problems in your stomach.
  3. Pomegranate Juice: Very small quantities of Pomegranate juice on a daily basis will be very beneficial for a bad case of acid reflux.
  4. Coconut water: Drink coconut water as it is known to have properties to neutralize the stomach acids.
  5. Aniseed: Also known as saunf, you can chew them raw and slowly swallow with water for quick relief from acidity.
  6. Jeera: Jeera consumed with warm ghee and then mixed with rice tends to be very good for acidity as well. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a ayurveda and ask a free question.

We did 1st time sex on 20 April, she took an ipill within 2 hours. She got her period on 17 may. Then we did sex on 20th June and she took an ipill within 2 hours. She got light bleeding on 26th for 3 days. She got her normal period on 26 June. She also done UPT after 45 days of sex, it comes negative. But she is noticing that her breast size has increased. Is there any chance of pregnancy? Or is it ipill side effects?

Hello, if you want to confirm whether she is pregnant or not, then get a beta hcg test done. Also do not use i-pill every month rather use emergency contraceptive pills. I-pill is for emergency purpose only.

Management of Endometriosis

Fellowship in Minimal Access Surgery, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Bangalore
Management of Endometriosis

When tissues that usually grow inside the uterus, start growing outside the organ, it is called endometriosis. Painful periods, pain during sex, pain while urinating or bowel movements, extreme bleeding, fatigue, infertility, diarrhea, bloating and nausea are some of the symptoms of endometriosis.

Treating endometriosis usually depends on the following factors

  1. Age
  2. Severity of symptoms
  3. Severity of the disease
  4. Future plans for children

Depending on these the doctor might opt for any of the following treatments

  1. Medication for Pain: If the symptoms are mild, then the doctor will prescribe some pain killers like Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. 
  2. Hormone Therapy: Hormone therapy is effective, but once you stop them, your symptoms may come back. Some of the hormone therapies include: 
    • Hormonal Contraceptives: Birth control pills, vaginal rings and patches are useful in controlling the hormones that are responsible for tissue build-up outside the uterine cavity. 
    • Medroxyprogesterone: This drug stops menstruation, which in turn stops the tissue build-up and put an end to all the symptoms. But on the other hand, gaining weight, low bone production and depression are some of the common effects of this drug. 
    • Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (Gn-RH) antagonists and agonists: Hormones that stimulate ovaries are blocked by these. They bring down oestrogen levels and hence prevent menstruation. 
    • Danazol: This drug prevents menstruation and symptoms of endometriosis by blocking the hormones that stimulate the ovaries. However, Danazol may not be a favourable option because of its side effects. The drug should be avoided during pregnancy.
  3. Conservative Surgery: If you are trying to get pregnant, but you already suffer from endometriosis, then removing endometriosis surgically is a viable solution. Your uterus and ovaries will be preserved, which might increase your chances of becoming pregnant. Even suffering from severe pain might find relief from conservative surgery. 
  4. Hysterectomy: In extreme cases, the only way to deal with the symptoms is to completely remove the uterus, ovaries and cervix. Since a hysterectomy means you cannot have children, it is kept as the last option for women in their reproductive age. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

I took ipill twice last month within a gap of 40 days. Yesterday I saw brown color scars on my neck. It wasn't itching. Could it be a side effect of ipill or something else? How it could be cured?

MBBS, DGO, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology)
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Hi lybrate-user! Brown scars on the neck are unrelated to ipill. Consult a dermatologist for the same. Also avoid taking ipills as these may cause irregular bleeding. Please use some other reliable method if protection.

Hello, Pregnancy is unlikely, the delay is likely to be stress induced. You may wait for a week post missed periods to allow menses to start naturally.

Hello doc, planning for pregnancy at end of may and periods are due on 10th of may. But want to delay then for religious purpose. Should I take medicine?

Homeopath, Delhi
Planning pregnancy itself means you are taking menses into consideration too. Don't delay menses. It will disturb the physiological process and may lead into some other pathology. My advice would be not to rush in planning.

Check the man's semen for sperm count and motility. Make sure the woman is ovulating normally too. Once both things match any position during the midcycle period are conducive towards conception.

Last month I took an Ipill which was within the advises 72 hours of having sex. Then I got slight bleeding two days back and took another Ipill yesterday as my partner and I didn't use protection. I was pregnant and went through an abortion a few months ago. Now I've taken 3 home pregnancy tests which show positive. I also feel slightly feverish and nauseous. I've also been taking dulco flex because I have bad constipation. Could this be a false pregnancy scare or could I be pregnant? And why am I bleeding randomly?

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
3 tests cannot be false. Dulcoflex for constipation has no connection with your gyne problem , still at 28 I would suggest you to avoid it and regulate your diet. Regarding taking I pill , this tablet is for emergencies and not to be eaten like revadis from a road side stall. These tablets are loaded with hormones , if once taken during an emergency , Ipill does lead to hormonal imbalance and erratic periods. It looks like a Missed abortion case , Get an Ultrasound done to confirm pregnancy and act accordingly , Get some scientific way to avoid getting pregnant in future , low dose oral pills can be taken for few months , Will tell you later after looking at report of your ultrasound.

I am 50 years old lady with weight around 79 kg. Having irregular periods with heavy flow and severe stomach pain for past 4-5 years. 2015 and past ultrasound revealed a normal size uterus having one small fibroid. Undergone dnc and biopsy (which was negative) in 2013. Doctor advised to take trapic mf 3 times a day. Another private doctor advised me to undergo hysterectomy while government doctor advised me to go through this phase considering my age it may be sign of menopause. 1. Should I take medicine or go for operation? 2. If operation, will it be laparoscopy or major operation? I had 2 caesarean operations in 1987 and 1991. I was told that due to caesarean operations it may be not be possible to do laparoscopy as some organs may be joined with uterus over the years due to the internal stitches. Any clinical test that can reveal the above fact. 3. For how many days trapic mf can be taken. My last periods lasted for 20 to 25 days and therefore had to take it for all these days. Any side effect of taking trapic mf for long? 4. Also taking homeopathic medicine for the past 4-5 years was helping me to some extent. Recently medicine was changed which finally stopped the bleeding after 20 to 25 days but the side effect is that I am feeling very sleepy and lethargy.

MBBS, MD Obs & Gynae, FNB Reproductive Medicine
Gynaecologist, Jalandhar
if pain is occurring for long time it is better to do surgery. One can try with laparoscopy and if impossible to separate bladder from uterus one can proceed with open surgery. trapic mf should not be taken for so long. homeopathic medicine is of doubtful role in relieving these kind of conditions.

While sleeping , how much can you control your posture? Better to take care in the daytime. Also do not take heavy dinner. Indigestion and fullness can also be a cause of lack of sleep.

My wife got uterus operation does she get urge for sex. They must have left ovary. Definitely sexual urge is affected. She can take hrt. Which local cream to improve orgasm.

Diploma in Hospital Administration, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Removal of Uterus has no effect on the urge for sex. Your wife must be less than 32 yrs, Generally doctor leave one ovary, Which is sufficient to produce adequate amount of Female Hormones. Hence there is no need for HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy). If one ovary is left then there is no need for vaginal creams. Soyabean preparations are good source of Oestrogen (Female Hormones) like Nutrinuggets / Soya Milk/ Tofu/ Soya biscuits or Chaptties made from 10 kg Wheat Flour mixed with 1 kg Soya flour.

लहसुन के औषधीय गुण :

M.Sc - Psychology, PGDEMS, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Delhi
लहसुन के औषधीय गुण :

आयुर्वेद ग्रंथ 'भावप्रकाश' कहता है कि 'लहसुन वृष्य स्निग्ध, ऊष्णवीर्य, पाचक,सारक,रस विपाक में कटु तथा मधुर रस युक्त, तीक्ष्ण भग्नसंधानक (टूटी हड्डी जोड़ने वाला), पित्त एवं रक्तवर्धक, शरीर में बल, मेधाशक्ति तथा आँखों के लिए हितकर रसायन है। यह हृदय रोग, जीर्ण रोग (ज्वरादि), कटिशूल, मल एवं वातादिक की विबंधता, अरुचि, काम, क्रोध, अर्श, कुष्ठ, वायु, श्वांस की तकलीफ तथा कफ नष्टकारी है।

मेहनतकश किसान-मजदूर तो लहसुन की चटनी, रोटी खाकर स्वस्थ और कर्मठ बने रहते हैं। यह कैंसर से लड़ने में खास उपयोगी है क्योंकि यह खाने -पीने की चीजों या प्रदूषण से शरीर में बनने वाले नाइट्रोसेमाइन के असर को कम करता है। हृदय रोग समेत कई अन्य रोगों में भी यह सुरक्षा कवच बन सकता है। इसे पूरे शरीर के लिए एक शक्तिशाली टॉनिक बताया गया है। पिछले महीने एनालिटिकल बायोकेमिस्ट्री पत्रिका में छपी रिपोर्ट में कहा गया कि नाइट्रोसेमाइन का संबंध कैंसर से होता है। ज्यादातर सब्जियों, डब्बाबंद आहार और उद्योग से निकलने वाले कचरे में नाइट्रेट की मात्रा होती है। करीब 20 प्रतिशत नाइट्रेट शरीर में जाकर नाइट्रोसेमाइन में बदल जाता है। इस अध्ययन में शामिल लोगों को, एक हफ्ते तब बिना नाइट्रेट और लहसुन वाला भोजन दिया गया। इसके बाद उन्हें सोडियम नाइट्रेट की खुराक इस प्रकार दी गई जिससे वह टॉक्सिक में न बदले। इसके बावजूद, पेशाब की जांच में, इसके टॉक्सिक में बदलने की प्रक्रिया का पता लगा। इसके बाद स्टडी में शामिल लोगों के एक ग्रुप का इलाज लहसुन के डोज से किया गया। उन्हें एक, तीन या पांच ग्राम ताजा लहसुन या तीन ग्राम लहसुन का रस दिया गया। दूसरे ग्रुप को 500 मिली ग्राम एस्कॉर्बिक एसिड या विटामिन-सी दिया गया। दोनों समूहों को सात दिन तक ये खुराक दी गई और हर दूसरे दिन उनके पेशाब के नमूने लिए गए। जांच से स्पष्ट हुआ कि लहसुन का सेवन करने वालों में नाइट्रोसेमाइन की मात्रा कम थी। 'एनल्स ऑफ इंटरनल मेडिसिन' और 'जर्नल ऑफ न्यूट्रीशन' के अध्ययन का भी निष्कर्ष है कि लहसुन सेवन से कोलेस्ट्रॉल में 10 फीसदी तक की गिरावट हो सकती है और हर हफ्ते सप्ताह लहसुन के पाँच दाने खाने से कैंसर का खतरा 30 से 40 फीसदी कम हो जाता है। वस्तुतः,षडरस अर्थात् भोजन के 6 रसों में, "अम्ल रस" को छोड़,शेष पाँच रस लहसुन में सदैव विद्यमान रहते हैं। आज षडरस आहार दुर्लभ हो चला है। लहसुन उसकी पूर्ति के लिए बहुत सस्ता, सुलभ विकल्प है। इसीलिए,लहसुन को गरीबों का 'मकरध्वज' कहा जाता है क्योंकि इसके लगातार प्रयोग से मनुष्य का स्वास्थ्य उत्तम रहता है।

औषधीय गुणः
मलेरिया के रोगी को भोजन से पहले तिल के तेल में भुना लहसुन खिलाना चाहिए। लहसुन का तेल सवेरे निराहार पानी के साथ लेने से, कितनी ही पुरानी खाँसी हो, फायदा होता है। बिच्छू के काटे स्थान पर डंक साफकर लहसुन और अमचूर पीसकर लगाने से जहर उतर जाता है। डंक ग्रस्त भाग पर पिसी चटनी भी लगाएँ। इन्फ्लूएंजा में लहसुन का रस पानी में मिलाकर चार-चार घंटे बाद दें। इसके सेवन से रक्त में थक्का बनने की प्रवृत्ति बहुत कम हो जाती है, जिससे हार्ट अटैक का खतरा कम हो जाता है। लहसुन की गंध से मच्छर भी दूर भागते हैं।यह उच्च रक्तचाप में भी काफी लाभदायक माना गया है। जी मचलने पर लहसुन की कलियाँ चबाना या लहसुनादि वटी चूसना फायदेमंद होता है। रोगाणुनाशक क्षमता होने के कारण लहसुन के एक भाग रस में तीन भाग पानी मिलाकर इसका इस्तेमाल घाव धोने के लिए किया जाता है। कुनकुने पानी में लहसुन का रस मिलाकर गरारे करने से गले की खरास दूर हो जाती है। लहसुन में पर्याप्त मात्रा में लौह तत्व होता है जो कि रक्त निर्माण में सहायक होता है। विटामिन-सी युक्त होने के कारण यह स्कर्वी रोग से भी बचाता है। लहसुन का रस 25 ग्राम की मात्रा में प्रातः निराहार ही त्रिफला के साथ कुछ दिन लगातार लेने से मधुमेह के रोगियों को लाभ होता है। यह कब्जहारी है। इसका इस्तेमाल जोड़ों के दर्द या गठिया में भी होता है तथा यह सूजन का भी नाश करती है। लहसुन के रस की पाँच-पाँच बूंदें सुबह-शाम लेने से काली खाँसी दूर हो जाती है। कान में दर्द होने पर, लहसुन और अदरक को बराबर की मात्रा में कूटकर कुनकुना करके कान में लेने से आराम मिलता है। 10 ग्राम लहसुन का रस मट्ठे में मिलाकर तीन बार लेने से पेचिश का शमन हो जाता है। लहसुन के सेवन से ट्यूमर को 50 से 70 फीसदी तक कम किया जा सकता है। गर्भवती महिलाओं को लहसुन का सेवन नियमित तौर पर करना चाहिए। गर्भवती महिला को अगर उच्च रक्तचाप की शिकायत हो तो, उसे पूरी गर्भावस्था के दौरान किसी न किसी रूप में लहसुन का सेवन करना चाहिए। यह रक्तचाप को नियंत्रित रख कर शिशु को नुकसान से बचाता है। उससे भावी शिशु का वजन भी बढ़ता है और समय पूर्व प्रसव का खतरा भी कम होता है।

लहसुन की तासीर काफी गर्म और खुश्क होने के कारण इसे उचित अनुपात में ही लेना चाहिए। खासकर गर्मी के मौसम में पित्त प्रधान प्रकृति वालों को इसका संतुलित इस्तेमाल ही करना चाहिए। कच्चा लहसुन बहुत तीक्ष्ण होता है इसीलिए इसका ज्यादा उपभोग करने से पाचन क्रिया गड़बड़ा सकती है। कुछ लोगों को लहसुन से एलर्जी भी होती है। ऐसी एलर्जी का लक्षण यह होता है कि कहीं-कहीं त्वचा लाल हो जाती है और सिरदर्द होता है। बुखार भी हो सकता है। सर्जरी से पहले लहसुन का इस्तेमाल नहीं करना चाहिए। एड्स के रोगी अगर लहसुन का सेवन करते हैं तो उन्हें साइड-इफेक्ट हो सकता है। अगर लहसुन का कुछ दुष्प्रभाव महसूस हो तो मरीज को गोंद कतीरा, धनिया, बादाम-रोगन, नींबू, पुदीना देते रहने से उसका दुष्प्रभाव दूर हो जाता है। घी में भून कर लेने से भी इसका कुप्रभाव दूर हो जाता है। सूखा लहसुन छीलकर ही इस्तेमाल करना चाहिए।
