Amlapitta is one of the most common diseases seen in the society. It is seen in all ages, all classes, and all community. Amlapitta corelated with Hyperacidity refers to a set of symptoms caused by an imbalance between the acid secreting mechanism of the stomach and proximal intestine and the protective mechanisms that ensure their safety. The stomach normally secretes acid that is essential in the digestive process. When there is excess production of acid in the stomach, it results in the condition known as acidity. Amlapitta is managed through Pitta Shaman with Vaman and Virechana because according to our acharyas it occurs due to vitiation of Kaphas Pitta Doshas. Swamarg Chikitsta is described for the treatment of Amlapitta. In Ayurved, Hyperacidity can be explained under broad umbrella of Urdward Amplapitta, Vidagdhajeerna, Samapitta Laxanas, Pittaja Grahani Laxana.
