Amlapitta (~hyperacidity) is a disease of Annavaha srotas (~gastrointestinal tract) that originates from Amasaya (~stomach). Mandagni (~low digestive fire) plays an important role in its manifestation. The disease is easy to treat in its early stage while difficult to manage in chronic stage. It can cause various complications if not treated early. The disease has close resemblance with acid peptic disorder or hyperacidity. Various treatment modalities are available in conventional medical science, but they have certain limitations. In Ayurveda, various herbs, minerals, and their compound formulations have been mentioned in its management, and Indukanta ghritam is one among such formulations. In the present case report, a 17-year-old female with complaints of Amlodgara (~sour belching), Hritkanthadaha (~burning sensation in throat and chest), Utklesha (~nausea) and Chardi (~vomiting), Avipaka (~indigestion), Shiroruja (~headache), and Vibandha (~constipation) visited outpatient department.
