Chronic heartburn

Chronic heartburn

When there is a burning sensation in the oesophagus.

“I experience pain below the sternum.” “The acid comes all the way up to my throat.” “I can only sleep in a sitting position.”

This or a similar experience is what people report with regard to their chronic heartburn and their excruciating symptoms.

Chronic heartburn restricts one’s quality of life drastically due to the typical reflux symptoms, such as burning or stabbing pain in the stomach area, in the neck or throat, acid belching and reflux of acid foods in the mouth. Even chronic hoarseness can be an indication. Consuming coffee, fruit juices, wine or chocolate often intensifies the complaints.

The strong stomach acid attacks the sensitive mucous membrane of the oesophagus and can lead to inflammation. If untreated for years, it can cause oesophageal cancer.

What is the Vedic medicine point of view on chronic heartburn?

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

Metabolic residues develop continuously due to improper lifestyle. In the case of gastroesophageal reflux disease, toxins (in Ayurveda called “Ama”) accumulate in the stomach area. Eighty per cent of overweight people are affected by chronic heartburn as the acid production in the stomach is either excessive or the stomach sphincter is no longer closing properly.

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

What is the significance of that?

Vedic medicine offers different methods of treatment. After an in-depth medical diagnosis at our Centre, a comprehensive treatment plan is individually tailored for each patient with chronic heartburn.

An increasing number of patients experience
that conventional therapies alone no longer suffice.

They recognize that healing must take place on all levels. In the case of chronic heartburn, for example, an emphasis on elimination of toxins or reduction of weight can be recommended. It is important to bring all natural regulatory principles back into harmony. Nutritional recommendations and helpful exercises, as well as specific herbal mixtures tailored according to your needs, support a health-conscious lifestyle. In this way, your natural self-healing abilities can balance acid reflux symptoms effectively.
