Three Steps to Build Robust Digestive System with Ultimate Gut Health and Freedom from Acid Reflux, Bloating, chest burn, nausea and stomach ulcer 


2 years of Acid reflux relieved in 20 days of Acidotox program

I had severe Acidity for the last 2 years.  A lot of acids came up to the mouth when I lay down, and I could not sleep due to this.  I tried Allopathy these 2 years, but it did not work. Then I came all the way from the US to India Mumbai Ayushakti center.  Within 20 days, I felt 60% relief in all symptoms—reduced Acid reflux. I will continue all the guidance given to get complete relief.  Monisha Gandhi, USA.  

What does Acid Reflux feel like?


  • Heartburn
  • Severe regurgitation of gastric acid or stomach toxins into the mouth
  • Difficult and painful swallowing
  • Chest pain
  • Throat burning and pain
  • Discomfort in the stomach, indigestion 


How does Acid Reflux or Acidity occur?

Our stomach and digestive glands secrete acid to digest the food we eat. It is a normal and natural process. When the acid secretion is higher than required, you feel a burning sensation just above the stomach after having your food. Over time, this burning sensation becomes frequent, and you suffer from acid reflux.

According to Ayushakti Ayurveda, Regularly eating heavy, spicy, and sour food and stress overloads the digestive system and creates inflammation in the food pipe and stomach.   A weak food pipe can cause a reflux of the acid in the stomach to the lower part of the food pipe. Slowly the digestion gets affected, and finally, every food you eat gets fermented and produces acid, discomfort, and gas. In an extreme situation, the valve between the stomach and food pipe leaks, and this acid from the stomach comes up in the mouth (known as GERD) and you can feel nauseous, sour or bitter liquid at the root of the mouth.  It is known as the Acidity or Amlapitta in Ayurveda.

In most chronic cases, you feel a severe burning sensation in the chest and even up to the throat. You may also feel gassy, have a bloated stomach and constant burping. Chemical antacids may suppress burning and you can still feel bloated & gas with discomfort. 

What causes Acid Reflux?  

  • Excessive eating, fermented food, delayed eating habits or poor digestion
  • Intake of excessive salty, sour, spicy, oily, hot and uncooked foods
  • Anger, Improper sleep or stress
  • Sleep during the daytime
  • Having incompatible food like fish and milk
  • Suppression of natural urges
  • Over Fasting
  • Smoking & Drinking Alcohol 
  • Eating late nights

Can chronic Acid Reflux cause Stomach Ulcer?

Constant excess acid secretion can also cause ulcers if not taken care of. The untimely food habits and lifestyle causes the aggravation of heat (Pitta) in the stomach's inner lining, causing the imbalance in the acid, bile, H.pylori and gastric mucosa. It may develop into an ulcer in the stomach region, causing pain, burning sensation and infections in the stomach, and finally, ulcer.


8 years of Acidity, red erosions got relieved completely

“My stomach was completely damaged with scar tissues, I could not eat anything. Now I can eat everything even outside food. No acidity, gastritis. Endoscopy confirmed total repair of scar tissues”. Sangeeta Awade, Mumbai  


How to diagnose Acid reflux/Hyperacidity?

  • Endoscopy-
  • The endoscope can show peptic ulcers or inflammation in your stomach and esophagus. In severe acid reflux conditions, your doctor also may take tissue samples to test for Barrett's esophagus or oesophageal cancer.
  • Ambulatory acid tests-
  • These tests use an acid-measuring probe to identify when and for how long acid refluxes into your esophagus.
  • In another test (the Bravo test), the probe is attached to the lower portion of your esophagus during endoscopy.  Ambulatory acid tests can help your doctor rule out acid reflux but not bile reflux.
  • Oesophageal impedance-
  • This test measures whether gas or liquids reflux into the esophagus. It's helpful for people who regurgitate substances that aren't acidic (such as bile) and can't be detected by an acid probe. As in a standard probe test, esophageal impedance uses a probe that's placed into the esophagus with a catheter.


Ayushakti doctors can diagnose the deep-rooted long-term cause of  Acid reflux or Hyperacidity, stomach ulcers through pulse reading (personal consultation), or face reading (video consultation). Ayushakti doctors will ask questions to evaluate the symptoms' severity and plan a customized treatment plan according to your requirement.

Conventional treatments :

Lifestyle adjustments and medications can be very effective for acid reflux into the esophagus, but bile reflux is harder to treat. 

  • Medications help promote bile flow. It may lessen the frequency and severity of your symptoms.

Doctors may often prescribe bile acid sequestrants, which disrupt bile circulation, but studies show that these drugs are less effective than other treatments. Side effects, such as bloating, may be severe.

  • Proton pump inhibitors- These medications are often prescribed to block acid production, but they don't have a clear role in treating bile reflux.  There are lots of side effects & they are habit-forming. Long-term use of medication may cause side effects like -- constipation,  diarrhea, headaches, nausea, malabsorption of nutrients leading to vitamin B or vitamin D  deficiency with feeling fatigued or pain in the abdomen.

A report published in JAMA neurological journal by Britta Haenisch, Ph.D., German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases, demonstrated the link between dementia & long-term use of PPI ( proton pump inhibitor like Ezomaprazol sold as Nexium, or omeprazole or rabeprazole ( Aciphex) or similar PPI type antacids.

Surgical treatments-

  • Diversion surgery (Roux-en-Y)-
  • This procedure, which is also a type of weight-loss surgery, may be recommended for people who have had previous gastric surgery with pylorus removal. In Roux-en-Y, surgeons make a new connection for bile drainage farther down in the small intestine, diverting bile away from the stomach.
  • Anti-reflux surgery (fundoplication)-
  • The part of the stomach closest to the esophagus (fundus) is wrapped and then sewn around the lower esophageal sphincter. This procedure strengthens the valve and can reduce acid reflux. There is little evidence about the surgery's effectiveness for bile reflux.

Why go for surgery or be a slave of medication when you can completely get rid of acid reflux with Ayushakti’s natural acidotox program. 


Years of severe Hyperacidity, stomach infection completely relieved in 1. 5 years

I was having severe Hyperacidity around 2-3 years back.    It has developed because of my poor eating routine.  For many years I used to miss my lunch and eat food at around 4 pm. Over a period of time, the acidity situation kept getting worse, and it came to a point where I was not able to work, used to get continuous stomach infections, skin rashes, skin infections.  Additionally, my moods started getting change. I used to get angry very easily, get very paranoid and anxious at even the smallest trouble.  Then 1. 5 years ago, I consulted Dr. Smita Naram.  I started the recommended herbal supplements and the strict dietary restrictions.   I happily followed all the diets and herbs because they helped me from the first week.   Today after 1.5 years, most of the troubles and symptoms are much less.  The frequency of acid reflux is significantly reduced.  My tolerance to stay hungry and able to eat outside food is increased.   Most importantly, my overall temperament is much happier.  I am very grateful to the doctors and the Ayushakti clinic for helping me get rid of Acidic reflux.
