Gastritis or Acidity is a condition that refers to the inflammation of the mucous lining of the stomach. This condition can impair the secretion of the digestive enzymes by a gland of the stomach and result in indigestion. The root causes of acidity are Excessive consumption of alcohol, sour and spicy foods, and white flour products. Stress, anger, and heat exposure are also considered as the causes to aggravate the condition.
In Ayurveda, gastritis is also known as Amlapitta where Amla refers to Sour and Pitta refers to ‘Doshic imbalance’. It can occur due to improper dietary habits. Pitta rests in the stomach and regulates the digestive fire. Hence, it reduces the digestion process which results in the production of toxins and over-secretion of digestive enzymes in the body. Ayurvedic treatment for acidity includes restoring the digestive fire via a Pitta-pacifying diet, cooling herbs, and medical preparations.
