Ayurvedic Treatment For Heartburn and Acidityby Chandigarh Ayurved HealthCare Acidity is due to excess production of acid in the gastric glands of the stomach. Our stomach normally secretes hydrochloric acid which is required for breakdown and digestion. Hyperacidity in Ayurvedic terms can be called "Amlapitta". Acidity can be described as a disease of modernization due to irregular eating habits, it is more of psycho-somatic disorder caused due to mental stress & strain added with dietetic indiscrimination. Amalpitta is caused due to Viruddhasana and pittaprokapaj ahaar and vihar. It can occur due to unhealthy eating habits, as a side effect of medicines, due to existing medical conditions as peptic ulcer disease, diabetes, asthma, hiatal hernia, alcohol consumption, stress, smoking, lack of physical activity and irregularity in eating pattern. Acidity leads to burning sensation in the stomach, throat, and heart. It causes difficulty in swallowing, regurgitation, belching, nausea, indigestion, etc.
The treatment of hyperacidity in modern medicine includes protein pump inhibitors, antacids, H2 blockers, and prostaglandins which gives temporary relief but does not treat the disease completely.
