When the stomach burns and hurts

“I have stabbing pains in my stomach,” “When I’m hungry, it’s unbearable,” “I often feel nauseous after eating.”

This or a similar experience is what people report with regard to their excruciating condition when suffering from an inflamed stomach lining.

Typical symptoms are a feeling of pressure in the stomach area as well as pain. This improves at first after eating, but then returns with its former severity. Those affected often don’t have an appetite or suffer from long lasting nausea or vomiting.

It doesn’t matter whether the inflammatory illness of the stomach lining is caused by permanent stress, bacterial colonization of the helicobacter pylori through intake of a specific medicine, or as a result of an autoimmune reaction in which the immune system attacks the stomach lining.

What is the Vedic medicine point of view on gastritis?

Gastritis from ayurvedic point of view

According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, gastritis starts with the loss of natural balance.

Metabolic residues develop continuously due to improper lifestyle. In the case of gastritis, toxins (in Ayurveda called “Ama”) accumulate in the stomach. Each gastritis patient knows that heavy foods and stress as well as an unstable nervous system can serve as a trigger for the familiar symptoms.

In Ayurveda every patient is different and so each person’s gastritis complaint varies. The Ayurvedic approach at our Centre is holistic.

In Vedic medicine, gastritis is addressed by combining various treatments into a multi-faceted approach adapted to your individual situation, as determined in a comprehensive diagnosis by one of our physicians.
