Stomach & Its Diseases:
Stomach (pet) is an important organ of human body where digestion of food begins. It is a ‘J’ shaped muscular sac lies between esophagus and small intestine. In other words, stomach is a part of digestive system from where churning of food takes place into a consistency. By churning of food, it makes digestive process easier for intestine. In short, partial digestion of the food takes place in the stomach. It has three tasks. Firstly, it stores swallowed food. Then it mixes the food with stomach acids. At last, it releases the mixture to the small intestine.
The wall of the stomach has four layers- mucosa, sub-mucosa, muscularis externa, and the serosa. All of these play an important role in digestion of food. As long as these parts play their role in controlled and regulated manner, everything is all right. But when this process is interrupted due to some reasons, problems started.
Most of the people have stomachache (pet dard) at one or another time. Acidity (pitta rog), gastric trouble and indigestion (badhajmi) are common among them. These stomach related health problems can be short-lived, come and go, or show up only after you eat. If you go to doctor, firstly he runs a number of tests to narrow it down. And then starts treatment with so many medicines.
