A very common stomach related problem is dyspepsia, which we all know as indigestion.
It is generally described as an uncomfortable pain in our stomach or chest occurring usually after you have eaten something. In medicinal language, other common symptoms of indigestion include a sensation of feeling full and heavy (that generally happens when you have eaten more than your stomach asked for), it can cause your stomach to bloat and make you feel nauseous. Indigestion or dyspepsia can also cause heartburn.
Heartburn is a burning sensation in our chest or throat. A heartburn is caused because of acid that gets stored at back of our esophagus, it is tube responsible for carrying our food from our mouth to stomach.
Indigestion is not uncommon and most of us have experienced the unusual pain in our stomach. Generally, dyspepsia is mild in nature and occurs infrequently without causing any lasting damage to our body. However, it can still be a trouble to deal with a heavy stomach.
When the acid in our stomach interacts with the lining of the digestive tract, it attacks the lining and breaks it down. This attack of acids on the lining of our digestive tract can cause irritation, pain, inflammation and swelling.
Indigestion or the attack of stomach acids is often stimulated because of alcohol consumption; smoking and taking certain medications can also trigger indigestion.
According to modern medicine, pregnant women are more likely to suffer through indigestion.
Ayurveda and Indigestion
In Ayurveda, the word ajirna means the incomplete process of digestion and ayurveda considers agnimandya as the cause behind incomplete digestion or ajirna.
Agnimandya means a weak digestive fire. Our gut fire or agni is responsible for the digestion of food in our body.
Ajirna or indigestion can be classified into three categories Amajirna, Vidagdhajirna and Vishtabdhajirna. Amajirna is associated with impairment of Kapha dosha, Vidagdhajirna is associated with impairment of pitta dosha and Vishtabdhajirna is associated with impairment of vata dosha.
