Hyper Acidity and Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease (AMLA PITHAM)

Dr.C Manoj Kumar,Chief Physician, Nagarjuna Ayurvedic Centre Kalady


Gastric reflux is a condition in which the food and other contents of the stomach re-enter into the oesophagus. This condition can remain for long with repeated refluxes. Due to the presence of stomach contents in the chest area, the patient feels acid taste in the mouth, heart burn, vomiting of stomach contents with acid, chest pain etc.

Hyper acidity is a co-existing condition, where excess gastric secretion leads to discomfort in the stomach.

Abnormal function of Pitta and Vata is the reason for these conditions. A proper Ayurveda Panchakarma treatment in the initial stage will help in effective management of this condition. This can help the person from being dependent on antacids, life long and also prevent further complications. Administration of medicated ghee, therapeutic oil massage, inducing purgation with specific herbal formulation are the procedures usually done. Since stress is one of the major reason, treatments like pouring of continuous stream of medicated oil on fore head (sirodhara) will help manage it. Post treatment procedures, the patient has to continue with internal medicines and follow the prescribed diet and life style modifications.
