Indigestion (Ajirna)

Share with:

Indigestion is very common these days. The main reason for this is the urban lifestyle and modern lifestyle. In today’s world when physical labor is very rare, pleasure is also plentiful and lifestyle has become quite erratic, it is never possible for the digestive system to maintain its condition and we do not even allow it to happen.

When calamities strike the digestive system beyond its capacity, our body becomes prone to diseases like indigestion. We are first unaware of this slow progressing disease and then it settles within us in the form of indigestion. Regular and systematic treatment of Ayurveda can definitely get us out of this disease. We need to know about the causes, symptoms etc.

Eating less, overeating, not eating on time, raw or burnt food, not eating when hungry. Eat even when you are not hungry. All these reasons cause indigestion.

Symptoms –

Abdominal pain, bloating, frequent belching, restlessness, low fever, constipation, gas.

Different types of indigestion have been described in Ayurveda and accordingly different remedies have been given. The four types of indigestion are as follows.

  1. Aamajirna
  2. Vidagdhajirna
  3. Vishtabdhajirna
  4. Rasasheshajirna

In all these types, the main cause is weakened digestive fire, so the medicine which keeps the fire lit is beneficial in this. In common problems, you can treat yourself with different experiments, but if the disease is long, very chronic and the symptoms are more, then it is necessary to get treatment from a good Ayurvedic doctor. It is also more beneficial to treat the disease permanently with the advice of its specialist.

Indigestion is cured by the combination of common medicines like Hingashtak Churna, Lavanabhaskar Churna, Shankhavati etc. and many other more powerful classical Medicines of Ayurveda.
