Chronic gastritis

CAUSE OF CHRONIC GASTRITIS IN AYURVEDA

According to Ayurveda there are three energies in the body – vata, pitta and kapha. These energies are important for a healthy body. Imbalance of any of three energies results in the health complications. In Ayurveda, chronic gastritis is known as urdhvaga amla pitta which is due to the aggravation of pitta dosha. The consumption of spicy foods, caffeine, tobacco and alcohol leads to pitta dosha. Aggravated pitta dosha weakens the body's digestive fire which leads to the production of toxins (ama). Due to the accumulation of ama (toxins) in the body, levels of gas increased in the stomach, causes the condition of gastritis.

From the Ayurvedic point of view, chronic gastritis is managed by pacifying the aggravated pitta dosha. This can be achieved by the use of various herbs like Amla (Emblica officinalis), Haritaki (Terminalia chebula), Bahera (Terminalia bellerica), Sounf (Foeniculum vulgare), Jeerak (Cyminum cuminum), Pippali (Piper longum), Dhania (Coriander sativum), Amalaki (Emblica officinalis), Gotukola (Centella asiatica) present in Ayurveda which are cooling in nature and help to pacify the aggravated pitta dosha.
