Acidity

Hyperacidity is known as Amlapitta in Ayurveda (Amla means sour and Pitta means heat). Hyperacidity therefore is a condition characterized by an increase of sourness and heat in the body. The aggravated Pitta impairs the digestive fire (pachak pitta), leading to improper digestion of food and production of ama (toxins). This ama gets accumulated in the digestive channels and causes Hyperacidity.

The main cause of hyperacidity is the aggravation of Pitta Dosha in the body. There are many causes for the aggravation of Pitta, main among them are: Eating foods that should not be taken together  for ex. milk and fish, milk and salt, excessively sour or spicy foods and liquids, white flour products and white sugar products, smoking and excessive consumption of tea, coffee and alcohol, eating in a state of indigestion, suppressing urges of urination and stool, sleeping in the daytime after meals, staying awake late into the night, excessive stress, anger and hunger, excessive exposure to sun and heat .

Symptom of Acidity include burning sensation in chest, pain in upper region of abdomen, Nausea, belching, Some time vomiting, Bitter taste and Feeling of restlessness. Ayurvedic medicine Dadimavleha help balance the acid in the stomach. It tastes sour, but it is actually both astringent and bitter, which help balance Pitta.

Modern lifestyles and unhealthy eating habits lead to different stomach and intestinal diseases and disorders. Heartburn, hyperacidity and ulcer are few of the stomach disorders that can be cured through Ayurveda by using Amala, , Triphala, shankh bhasma etc.
