What is Gastric-peptic ulcer Ayurvedic treatment


Gastric or Peptic ulcer refers to a lesion or a sore in the inner lining of the stomach wall. This sore may sometimes also develop just above the stomach in the wall of the esophagus- where it is called esophageal ulcer.1

The term ‘Peptic ulcer’ is used for all the ulcers - both gastric/esophageal ulcers and duodenal ulcers.1

The symptoms of peptic ulcer are described well in Ayurvedic texts. Gastric ulcers have been described as Annadrava Shoola (pain of the food) and duodenal ulcers have been described as Parinama Shoola (pain during digestion of food).2

While the pain in Annadrava Shoola does not subside at any time; it has no relation with meal or with lifestyle chances, but is relieved occasionally after vomiting. Parinama Shoola is described as pain occurring during digestion of food. When Vata aggravates due to its causative factors like dry food etc. in its digesting process, it dominates and surrounds the Pitta and Kapha and causes pain. This pain is called Parinama Shoola.2

It is further divided into sub categories based on the imbalance in particular doshas viz. vataja, pittaja and kaphaja types.
