Ayurvedic Treatment of Dyspepsia
"Good digestion is happiness and bad digestion is the root of all diseases". When food is not digested properly it becomes poison in body and results in digestion health issues. If you have a stomach upset you cannot enjoy your meal. There are various factors which are responsible for this problem like over eating, eating rapidly, eating unhealthy foods, bad combination of foods, improper eating timing of breakfast, lunch and dinner.
What is Dyspepsia?
Dyspepsia which is also called as indigestion or stomach upset. Dyspepsia describes the pain and discomfort in upper abdomen which results in the nausea, bloating and burping. Dyspepsia occurs when stomach acids come in contact with lining of digestive system and break down the mucosa which results in inflammation and trigger the symptoms of indigestions.
Symptoms of Dyspepsia
- Loss of appetite
- Burning sensation in chest
- Black stools
"There is rarely to worry about the indigestion. But you must visit your doctor if symptoms last for more than two weeks. In very few cases, indigestion may be the symptom of stomach cancer"
Complications Associated with Dyspepsia
- Due to the over acid production, stomach ulcers can form.
- Stomach juices cause the destruction to the lining of digestive system that may lead to gastritis.
- Excessive acid production causes the Zollinger Ellison disease which results in the tumors in upper pancreas and upper part of your small intestine (duodenum).
- Esophageal and duodenal ulcers can form.
In Ayurveda there are three energies – vata, pitta and kapha which are responsible for a healthy body. So imbalance in any of three energies results in the health complications. Dyspepsia is also the result of aggravated vata dosha. When there is improper digestion of food occurs due to low jathragni and a very little part of food is converted in the nutritious juices while greater part is converted into the waste products. Accumulation of excess waste products causes the aggravation of vata dosha. Aggravated pitta dosha results in the production of ama (toxin) in body. Ama production results in dyspepsia and various other stomach complications.
