A very common problem amongst the age group of 18 to 65 years HYPER ACIDITY! Commonly referred as Acidity
I am a Pulse and Constitutional Ayurveda expert. The most of the patients that come to me say yes to this ‘Acidity’ problem. But the alarming part is how casually we take it! The answers I get are “I have it since I remember it” or “It’s been there since so many years” or “whenever I eat out, I have this problem” and many others. Sad part is hardly any patient comes for the treatment of acidity itself until they have developed many other health complications. So let get an Ayurvedic perspective on Hyperacidity
Ayurvedic name– Amlapitta (अमला पित्त) Definition: Causes:· Consumption of opposite foods E.g.: milk and fruits, yogurt and fish, cooked and uncooked food, milk products and fruits or vegetables, etc.· Excessive consumption of sour, spicy and pungent foods· Excessive consumption of alcohol· Late night eating· Suppressing hunger
