Due to various adoption and  changes in life style, food eating habits leads to disproportion of Sharirika doshas, as well as Mansik doshas which leads to various diseases. Ayurveda gives prime supremacy to Agni due to its immense importance in therapeutic, diagnostic and other aspects. Amlapitta or hyperacidity is one of the most common disease seen in present era and not only present but also since past era. Amlapitta, a functional disease of Annavaha srotas caused due to improper dietary habits and stress is prevalent all over the world. Rapid lifestyle provokes people to run behind a busy, stressful life with least concern to proper diets. Amlapitta or hyperacidity therefore is a condition characterized by an increase of sourness and heat in the body. The intensified Pitta dosha  harms the digestive fire, leading to improper digestion of food and production of Ama. The present study was intended to find safe and effective treatment of Amlapitta. 45 patients of either sex between 21 – 60 years were randomly selected for the study. In Group A patients were treated with Sutasekhar Ras for 1month. In group B patients were treated with Vaman Karma with Yasthimadhu Kwath and in group C both the therapies were given. The results in group C were highly significant as compared to the other two groups. Thus it can be concluded that Sutasekhar Ras provides soothing effect and Vaman Karma with Yasthimadhu Kwath due to its Kaphapittahara property relieves Amlapitta.
