Causes For Acid Reflux
According to Ayurveda, the causes for acid reflux are;
1. Eating pitta (fire) aggravating foods and foods of incompatible nature (virudhaahar) vitiates all the Constitutions (doshas), Primary pittadosha. These Vitiated doshas produce heating toxins that are expelled upwards into the food pipe causing heartburn. Overuse of tea or coffee, or oily, spicy, or fried foods aggravates pitta. These leads to acidity. General in this conditions. Late night work schedules, irregular eating patterns, and drinking alcoholic and carbonated beverages also vitiate Pitta. Increased intake of painkillers and antibiotics also cause acidity and heartburn.

According to Ayurveda, The primary reason for Acid Reflux is an aggravation of Pitta Dosha. Pitta dosha is an Ayurvedic humor that represents heat or fire. It is hot, sharp, intense, acidic and pungent in nature and is located in the stomach. Aggravation of Pitta leads to increase of acidic content in stomach fluids. The reflux of the stomach’s liquid contents into the esophagus occurs in most healthy individuals. In such patients, refluxed liquid contains acid more often due to aggravated pitta, which leads to acid reflux.
Causes of indigestion according to Ayurveda
Digestion is a very important topic in Ayurveda.When we talk about digestion according to Ayurveda there are four types of digestive stages. Out of this four digestive stages, three are defective stages of digestion.First one is called variable digestive fire or it called “vishmagani”.Whenever we eat food the food is not necessarily digested completely. Sometimes the food is digested or sometimes it not ok, sometimes you are hungry, sometimes you are not hungry, it’s like irregular digestion.This type of digestive problem is caused by excessive of Vata or too much air in the body. It is also the tendency of that person having Vata constitution. So people suffering from this type of digestive disorder can have constipation, wind formation, and other digestive problems.
According to Ayurveda, there is a simple tip that can useful to flame your digestive power. Eat a piece of fresh ginger before five minutes of taking your meal. so that will stimulate your digestive power. Also, one shouldn’t drink water when we start eating.Never drink water before eating. or after the meals. Because if you drink water before the meals it will put down the digestive fire. If you drink water after the meal it will dilute the digestive enzymes. Why we are talking about the importance of digestion. Because in Ayurveda if the food is not digested properly. It will lead to two different things. One it will not nourish the tissues in the body second the undigested food in the body will create a toxic material “ama”. It’s a mucous type of material It’s formed in the stomach from the undigested food. When it goes to the lungs it causes asthma. When it mixes up with blood is called cholesterol, and the same ama goes into the small channels and blocks the channel and it forms fibroid or assist to a tumor. So it is very very important that we should not let this ama form in our stomach.
How can we do that? Very simple we have to just make sure that whatever we eat is completely digested.There are a lot of common problems we see in this modern age.A lot of food allergies have been seen when I go to the western countries. I find a lot of people suffering from a siliceous disease that they cannot eat beet or barely or such grains.The people suffering from irritable bowel syndrome, polite, ulcerative colitis and so many other diseases.which are actually connected with this ama.
