Which dosha, according to Panchakarma, leads to heartburn?
1 of 5
According to the ayurvedic remedy Panchakarma, heartburn is caused by the aggravation of Pitta (fire) dosha in the body. The intensified Pitta increases the acidic content in the stomach fluids and those who have this dosha, experience heartburn on frequent occasions. In such individuals, the refluxed liquid contains acid more often as compared to those who do not suffer from the Pitta dosha.
Which of the following increases the Pitta dosha in the human body?
2 of 5
The Pitta dosha can get aggravated by multiple factors. Dietary habit is one important factor that causes heartburn as irregular eating coupled with drinking and spicy food intake impairs the digestion process. Hyperactivity is also linked to Pitta dosha as it sends the whole body system into overdrive resulting in poor digestion and increased secretion of acids.
What are the other diseases that are caused by the aggravated Pitta dosha?
3 of 5
The aggravated Pitta dosha affects the digestive track and can cause many other diseases related to digestion. Ulcer is one such disease that affects the stomach and the intestine. It happens when the protective lining of the stomach gets damaged. Any harm to this layer leaves the stomach vulnerable and the digestive juices erode the tissue of the stomach causing ulcers.
Which of the Panchakarma technique eliminates Pitta from the body?
4 of 5
Virechana (Purgation) is the second form of Panchakarma technique that removes the Pitta toxins from the body by cleansing the gastrointestinal tract. It brings out the toxins in the form of feces from the rectum. It is prescribed by physicians after proper diagnosis as the purgative medicines are intense in action.
Virechana (Purgation) is an effective Pitta dosha Panchakarma technique that cures heartburn in all patients.
