Indigestion: Digestive Disorder as Per Ayurveda

The fundamental digestive disorder is indigestion or dyspepsia which may give rise to more acute or serious diseases. The basic cause of indigestion, besides weak digestive powers, is overeating or eating foods which must be avoided. Stools of such persons contain large amounts of undigested matter. They suffer from flatulence arising from putrifying matter in the stomach or the intestines. Breaking wind or belching may provide temporary relief, but there is generally a feeling of fullness amounting to heaviness, loss of appetite and general discomfort. Sometimes hyperacidity may cause a burning sensation and even sudden escape of gas from the mouth or coming up of the undigested matter from the stomach. Overburdening of the stomach, the root cause of indigestion, has to be avoided in order to start the treatment.
