Acidity 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. This acid helps in breaking down the food during digestion. When there is excess production of acid by the gastric glands of the stomach, it results in the condition known as acidity.
Causes of acidity:
The stomach, intestines, and digestive glands secrete hydrochloric acid and various enzymes, including pepsin that break down and digest food. The stomach must also be protected from the same acid and enzymes, or it too can be attacked by the gastric juices. The acid may enter the lower part of the Oesophagus (Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux), due to some weakness in the normal sphincter mechanism that prevents such reflux. This causes heartburn. It commonly occurs after meals and is brought on by excess intra-abdominal pressure like lifting weights or straining.
In Ayurveda Asthma is Known as ShwasRoga ., Asthma is a chronic condition involving the respiratory system in which one experiences shortness of breath.

Cervical spondylosis is degeneration of the verbae and discs in the neck. Abnormal growths or spurs on the bones of the spine can also end up with cervical spondylosis . The condition may lead to chronic neck pain.Cervical spondylosis is also known as Arthritis of the neck.
In severe cases the degeneration of the neck may result in irritation and extra pressure on the spinal nerve roots or spinal cord. It can cause arm or leg symptoms.Cervical-Spondylosis
Pain in the neck, arms and shoulder and stiffness of the neck are the common symptoms of cervical spondylosis. The movement of the spine usually increases the pain of the nick. Cervical Spondylosis is often associated with loss of memory and sleeplessnes.
Factors, conditions or habits that make a person more likely to develop cervical spondylosis
Bronchitis is a respiratory disease in which the mucus membrane in the lungs' bronchial passages becomes inflamed.
As the irritated membrane swells and grows thicker, it narrows or shuts off the tiny airways in the lungs, resulting in coughing spells that may be accompanied by phlegm and breathlessness.
The disease comes in two forms: acute (lasting from one to three weeks) and chronic (lasting at least 3 months of the year for two years in a row).
People with asthma may also have asthmatic bronchitis, inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes.
Acute bronchitis may be responsible for the hacking cough and phlegm production that sometime accompany an upper respiratory infection. In most cases, the infection is viral in origin, but sometimes it's caused by bacteria.
Constipation refers to bowel movements that are infrequent or hard to pass.Constipation is a common cause of painful defecation. Severe constipation includes obstipation (failure to pass stools or gas) and fecal impaction, which can progress to bowel obstruction and become life-threatening.
Constipation is a symptom with many causes. These causes are of two types: obstructed defecation and colonic slow transit (or hypomobility). About 50 percent of people evaluated for constipation at tertiary referral hospitals have obstructed defecation.This type of constipation has mechanical and functional causes. Causes of colonic slow transit constipation include diet, hormonal disorders such as hypothyroidism, side effects of medications, and rarely heavy metal toxicity. Because constipation is a symptom, not a disease, effective treatment of constipation may require first determining the cause. Treatments include changes in dietary habits, laxatives, enemas, biofeedback, and in particular situations surgery may be required.
Depression is a word that is commonly misused to describe a variety of conditions. Depression is a series of chemical imbalances that create a clinical illness that has strong links with anxiety disorders and can be a side effect of them.

Paralysis is loss of muscle function for one or more muscles. Paralysis can be accompanied by a loss of feeling (sensory loss) in the affected area if there is sensory damage as well as motor. About 1 in 50 people have been diagnosed with some form of paralysis, transient or permanent.
Paralysis is most often caused by damage in the nervous system, especially the spinal cord. Other major causes are stroke, trauma with nerve injury, poliomyelitis, cerebral palsy, peripheral neuropathy, Parkinson's disease, ALS, botulism, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, and Guillain-Barré syndrome. Temporary paralysis occurs during REM sleep, and dysregulation of this system can lead to episodes of waking paralysis. Drugs that interfere with nerve function, such as curare, can also cause paralysis.
Polycystic ovary syndrome refers to a common hormonal disorder among women of the reproductive age. Irregular menstrual periods, excess hair growth , acne and obesity can all occur in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome. The disease common among women between 15 to 30 years of age.

The definite cause of PCOS is uncertain. PCOS are common among sisters or a mother and daughter, but a definite genetic link has not been found.
The main symptoms of PCOS are:
Rhinitis or coryza is irritation and inflammation of the mucous membrane inside the nose. Common symptoms are a stuffy nose, runny nose, sneezing, and post-nasal drip.
In rhinitis, the inflammation of the mucous membrane is caused by viruses, bacteria, irritants or allergens. The most common kind of rhinitis is allergic rhinitis, which is usually triggered by airborne allergens such as pollen and dander. Allergic rhinitis may cause additional symptoms, such as sneezing and nasal itching, coughing, headache,fatigue, malaise, and cognitive impairment.The allergens may also affect the eyes, causing watery, reddened, or itchy eyes and puffiness around the eyes.The inflammation results in the generation of large amounts of mucus, commonly producing a runny nose, as well as a stuffy nose and post-nasal drip. In the case of allergic rhinitis, the inflammation is caused by the degranulation of mast cells in the nose. When mast cells degranulate, they release histamine and other chemicals,starting an inflammatory process that can cause symptoms outside the nose, such as fatigue and malaise. In the case of infectious rhinitis, it may occasionally lead to pneumonia, either viral pneumonia or bacterial pneumonia. Sneezing also occurs in infectious rhinitis to expel bacteria and viruses from the respiratory system.
The disc are natural protective shock absorbing pads between the bones and spine. These discs are filled with a jelly-like substance which cushion the vetebrae and keep them intact. An injury or weakness can cause disc to fail, allowing the gel to escape into the surrounding tissue. The disC loses their cushion ability and it may lead to severe back pain and pain in the other areas of the body. This condition is also called a hemiated, ruptured, prolaspesed or a slipped disc. Back pain and sciatica are the two main symptoms of slip disc.
The average ages of onset of slip disc are between the ages of 30 and 50 because the elasticity and water content of the nucleus decreases with age. But latest statistics show that people around the age of 20-30 are also affected with the slip disc because of their lifestyle, stress and food habits.
A sleep disorder, or somnipathy, is a medical disorder of the sleep patterns of a person or animal. Some sleep disorders are serious enough to interfere with normal physical, mental, social and emotional functioning. Polysomnography and actigraphy are tests commonly ordered for some sleep disorders.
Disruptions in sleep can be caused by a variety of issues, from teeth grinding (bruxism) to night terrors. When a person suffers from difficulty falling asleep and/or staying asleep with no obvious cause, it is referred to as insomnia.
Sleep disorders are broadly classified into dyssomnias, parasomnias, circadian rhythm sleep disorders involving the timing of sleep, and other disorders including ones caused by medical or psychological conditions and sleeping sickness.
Sinusitis refers to a condition in which the sinusitiscavities around nasal passages (sinuses) become inflamed and swollen due to the infections caused from the pathogenic microorganism (virus, bacteria or fungi).
If you are suffering from sinusitis, you may find it difficult to breath your nose. You may also feel throbbing facial pair or a headache.
Sinusitis may occur under either of these conditions:
Small hairs inside the sinuses fail to eliminate mucus out of the nose. It may be due to some medical conditions.

Symtoms of sinusitis include:
Tonsillitis is inflammation of the tonsils most commonly caused by viral or bacterial infection. Symptoms may include sore throat and fever. When caused by a bacterium belonging to the group A streptococcus, it is typically referred to as strep throat. The overwhelming majority of people recover completely, with or without medication. In 40% of sufferers, symptoms will resolve in three days, and in 85%, symptoms will resolve within one week, regardless of whether streptococcal infection is present or not.
Common signs and symptoms include:
Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have a negative effect on health.People are generally considered obese when their body mass index (BMI), a measurement obtained by dividing a person's weight by the square of the person's height, is over 30 kg/m2, with the range 25–30 kg/m2 defined as overweight.Some East Asian countries use lower values.Obesity increases the likelihood of various diseases, particularly heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, certain types of cancer, and osteoarthritis.Obesity is most commonly caused by a combination of excessive food intake, lack of physical activity, and genetic susceptibility.A few cases are caused primarily by genes, endocrine disorders, medications, or mental illness.Evidence to support the view that obese people eat little yet gain weight due to a slow metabolism is not generally supported.On average, obese people have a greater energy expenditure than their thin counterparts due to the energy required to maintain an increased body mass.
