Ayurvedic Treatment for Pangastritis - Symptoms, Causes, Home Remedies, Diet & Lifestyle

Pangastritis is defined as the inflammation of entire lining of the stomach. The inflammation of gastritis is most often seen as the result of infection with the same bacterium that causes stomach ulcers. Pangastritis can occur suddenly known as acute gastritis or appear slowly over time known as chronic gastritis.

When we eat food, it goes down through the food pipe and it is stored in stomach for about 1.5-2 hours. In the stomach, food undergoes disintegration into small particles. HCl (Hydrochloric Acid) kills the micro-organisms present in the food. The small portion of the food is absorbed. After 1.5-2 hours, the food is pushed down to intestine for further digestion.

If the inner lining of the stomach is irritated or damaged or inflamed, this condition is known as gastritis. The stomach lining can become inflamed due to certain reasons like heavy alcohol consumption, eating spicy and junk food, stress etc.


  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Burning ache or pain in the upper abdomen
  • Feeling of fullness in the upper abdomen after eating.


  • In erosive gastritis drugs, alcohol, acute stress and infection can precipitate the condition.
  • In most non-erosive gastritis conditions, H.pylori often found in people who suffer from no significant symptoms of gastritis. The symptoms appear when the gut becomes a conducive environment for H.pylori to colonise. According to Ayurvedic concept, the inbuild of toxins and impurities, blockage of proper circulation in the gut creates ground for mucosal irritation from both the toxins and H.pylori growth.

According to Ayurveda, root causes of Pangastritis are poor eating habits, taking incompatible food, intake of spicy and fried foods. Due to these foods, food is not digested properly and it provokes the excess of acidic secretion and thus results in gastric irritation.


According to Ayurveda, this disease is of Pitta origin so all measures are undertaken to pacify Pitta, therefore medicament should subside the irritation. After once complete remission of the complaints, elixirs are prescribed so as to check the re-manifestation of the similar conditions in coming days.

According to Ayurveda, line of treatment for pangastritis involves the following steps:

  • Correction of digestive enzymes
  • Healing of the inflamed stomach lining (gastric mucosa)
  • Correction of secretion of gastric juices
  • Achieving overall balanced function of stomach.


  1. Regular chewing of half a teaspoon of fennel seeds after food helps in relieving burning sensation in the stomach.
  2. Half glass buttermilk added with a pinch of asafoetida, half teaspoon of fenugreek seeds can be taken with food.
  3. Crush cumin seeds into a fine powder. Add half a teaspoon of cumin seeds to 1 litre of water and boil the water for 2 minutes and then filter it. Drink this water regularly in place of normal water. But, prepare fresh water daily. This is a natural remedy for pangastritis.
