Gastritis/acidity is an inflammation or erosion of the lining of stomach due to excess secretion of acid by the gastric glands of the stomach. This can be correlated to Amlapitta, in Ayurveda where the pitta dosha is vitiated along with Vata and impairs the Agni or the digestive fire in the Amashaya.
The food and lifestyle are the main causes of Amlapitta, which impairs the Pitta dosha
