Dyspepsia

DYSPEPSIA

Dyspepsia also known as indigestion is a common problem and is related to difficulty in digesting the food. Many people suffer from this problem where they feel slight burning in stomach and/or chest immediately after eating. Generally this condition is temporary in most people, but if there is a prolonged suffering from this problem, then a treatment is required.

Ayurvedic View:

Ayurveda describes dyspepsia as AGNIMANDYA, which is a condition where digesting capacity of the agnis, jatharagni in particular is reduced, and thus indigestion occurs. The aggravation of vata, pitta and kapha create dyspepsia, excess of vata results in pain in the stomach, pitta lead to burning sensation in stomach and excess kapha causes nausea and vomiting.

Symptoms:

Dyspepsia symptoms are as follows:

  • Pain in stomach
  • Flatulence
  • Sour eructation
  • Bad taste in mouth
  • Heart burn
  • Feeling of discomfort
  • Loss of appetite

Causes:

Irregular food habits such as overeating, eating at wrong time, and wrong type of food are the main causes of dyspepsia. Other causes of indigestion are:

  • Obesity
  • Reaction to painkiller medicines
  • Hernia
  • Infection or ulcers

Testimonial

I love eating food and before I could realize I was gaining weight at alarming rate. My job hours were such that I could not spare time to work out. A concerned friend suggested that I should approach doctors at Family Care Clinic, I talked with Dr. Ritu and she give me the best advice and treatment, including some easy but effective work outs. I am fit as a fiddle now!
