Rajni Sharma*, Dr. Santosh E. Chavan and Dr. Surendra M. Vedpathak

ABSTRACT

In Ayurveda classics, Acharya Yogaratnakar mentioned Amlapitta Vyadhi which manifests with following symptoms viz Avipaka (Indigestion/Loss of appetite), Amlodgara (Acid eructation), Hrtdaha (Heart burn), Kantha daha (Burning in throat/ Retro-sternal discomfort), Utklesha (Nausea). Amlapitta Vyadhi is a symptom complex matches with Non-Ulcer Dyspepsia defined as chronic dyspepsia (pain/upper abdominal discomfort) with no evidence of organic disease on investigation. i.e. Ulcer like symptoms with evidence of ulcer. When clinical evaluation fails to reveal any explanation for indigestion then it is known as functional dyspepsia. The term is interchangeable with Non-ulcer dyspepsias. Amlapitta, being a disease of Annavaha srotas caused due to Mandagni(Diminshed digestive power) and vitiation of Pitta. i.e. Pachaka pitta. It is of two types Urwadhaga Amlapiittta and Adhoga Amlapitta. Non-Ulcer dyspepsia / functional dyspepsia is thought to be due to mucosal or motility disorder or psychological disturbances, drugs or habits. These factors have been highlighted in the Ayurvedic science as the prime factors for the manifestation of Urdhwaga Amlapitta. Here I present the case of 28 years old female patient of Urdhwaga Amlapitta (Non-Ulcer Dyspepsia) who got completely cured through Vamana karma(Theraputic emesis) by Jeemutaka (Luffa echinata) Beeja churna(seed powder). Patient before treatment was completely dependent on Antacid drugs and after treatment no medication required by the patient leading a normal and healthy life.

Keywords: Urdhwaga Amlapitta, Non-Ulcer Dyspepsia, Jeemutaka(Luffa echinata), Vamana karma.
