Ayurveda has for centuries helped in the aid of digestion and gastro-care. Many of these practices continue to exist in the form of choornams and herbal tonics in households to this day.

A great first step is to refrain from eating foods that aggravate Pitta like very sour or spicy dishes and drinks, going overboard with smoking, alcohol and caffeine.
