For Comprehensive approach to Acid-Peptic Disorders

Heartburn - the predominant symptom, affects approximately 5 out of 10 people in India and the incidence of GORD (Gastrooesophageal Reflux Disease ), Non-ulcer Acid Dyspepsia (NAD) has been noted to be rising worldwide. Many of the factors known to be involved in GORD and NAD are not fully understood and thus, the orthodox treatment is often symptomatic and unsatisfactory. In Ayurveda Hyperacidity is called Amlapitta and it is clearly described by Madhava nidana. In amlapitta the quantity of pachaka pitta is increased. Its quality of normal bitter taste (alkaline) is changed to more sour taste (acidic) as a result of fermentation. Because of this increased sour quality of pitta it is called amla(sour)- pitta.

Ayurveda describes 2 types of amlapitta: 1. Urdhwaga amlapitta- affects upper GI tract 2. Adhoga amlapitta- affects lower GI tract

Causes of Amlapitta: Sedentary life style, incompatible combinations of food such as milk and fruit, milk and fish, cold and hot drinks etc. (Virudha ahara), contaminated food (leftover food), stale food, fermented food, excessive consumption of alcoholic drinks, improper sleeping habits, sour, pungent hot and salty food, deep fried food, spicy food, day sleeping after having food intake, suppression of natural urges (Vegavarodha), stress, anger (increase of Raja dosha), coffee, carbonated drinks, smoking.

Symptoms of Amlapitta: Indigestion , dyspepsia , sour eruptions , pain in cardiac region, loss of appetite, gurgling sound in the abdomen, thirst , burning sensation in throat and chest , headache , heaviness in the abdomen , diarrhea , fatigue Due to the holistic nature of Āyurveda, preventative and restorative treatment can be affected by discovering the root cause of the disease and treating the whole person, encompassing the spirit, mind and body. The treatment approach is depending on the type of Amlapitta (Adhoga or Urdhwaga type).

Bicid Capsule
  • The first step towards your health will be correcting your digestive function with appetizing herbs (herbs that increase the digestive power).

  • Shodhana treatment – Panchakarma Useful herbs are Amalaki, Shatavari, Guduchi, Yasthimadhu.

Bicid caps and syrup are designed to treat all types of GORD and NAD conditions. Bicid lowers the acid content in gastric juice by means of its Pitta shamaka property, which results into the suppression of growth of H-pylori.
The anti-ulcerants in Bicid, enhance the mucosal defense due to its Kapha vriddhi lakshana. This prevents the acid injury and back diffusion of H+ ions and thereby the formation of ulcer may be inhibited. Bicid contains AMLAKI and GUDUCHI which are proven to be potent ANTI-SECRETORY agents.
YESTHIMADHU forms a thin layer over the inflamed gastric mucosa and prevents the back diffusion of H+ ions and thereby enhances the healing process.
SHATAVARI, PUDINA and SHATAPUSHPA act as antacids to give immediate relief and also are GAS BUSTERS.
BHRINGARAJ is useful in increasing the bile, which when poured into the hepaticpancreatic ampulla serves as a natural antacid for duodenal ulcers and also enhances fat digestion.
Hence, for the first time in India, a three way comprehensive approach to treat ACID-PEPTIC DISORDERS has been formulated, combining ANTI-SECRETORY, ANTACID, DEFENSE BOOSTING agents.
