Introduction

Inflammation of the stomach lining is known as antral gastritis. Excessive use of these medications to reduce the breakdown of the mucus layer may damage the stomach lining. Causes of antrum gastritis include: 1. Viral infection caused by cytomegalovirus. 2. Anisachiosis (parasitic infection) 3. Other bacterial infections caused by streptococcus 4. Excessive consumption of alcohol such as gin, vodka, whiskey, etc.

 5. Acid reflux in the small intestine, 6. Food poisoning and allergies, 7. Chronic stress, 8. Iron supplements, chemotherapy, steroids, aspirin and cocaine, 9. Ischemia (poor blood supply to the stomach) 10. Mycoses and candidal fungal infections, 11. Autoimmune diseases, 11. Peptic ulcers, 12. Portal hypertension or hypertension, 13. Supine mode. Many infectious, primary and secondary causes have been described. (https://bansalhospital.com/antral-gastritis-symptoms-causes-treatment/). In Ayurveda, the word Krimi means all bugs and microorganisms, visible and invisible, since in modern science there are separate branches of parasitology and microbiology. Purishaj Krimi is described in Ayurvedic Samhita1.

Discussion

The patient was diagnosed as Antral gastritis in Allopathy. He had unsatisfactory relief. Presentation of symptoms were psychosomatic.In Ayurveda perspective, Antral Gastritis may be correlated with  Amlapitta 2. The patient had E. coli and E. Histolytica infection also Annavah3, Purishvah4and Manovah strotodushti symptoms was seen in Patient.Vyadhibal was Dominatingi.e Guruvyadhit 5 while Sharirbal was inferior but patient was Satwavan and Bhishaqvashya.6(good will power and faith towards Ayurveda). So Shodhan chikitsa was planned.Within 15 days patient got fruitful result. Although Patient had signs and symptoms of Amlapitta, we had planned Krimi Chikitsa on the basis of stool examinations report.  After Virechana (Shodhan karma) Shaman was planned, as per Chikitsa Sutra stated in Krimi Chikitsa.7 i.e. Nidan Parivarjan, Prakriti Vighat, and Apakarshana (Doshavasechan). Shodhan was planned in the form of Virechana it helps in elimination of Krimi from the body. After that, Krimikuthar ras was planned for Prakriti Vighat. i.e destruction of toxin produced by Krimi. It is very important to plan above said management to get fruitful effect. Nidan parivarjan was done in the form of Pathyapathya Regime Pathya was advise in the form of Ushna Laghu supachya ahar,Daily Meditation for 10 mins , Abstinence of junk food and limited mobile screen time.

Conclusion

Chikitsa Siddhant of krimi may prove fruitful in Psychosomatic diseases.Vyadhi bal ,Atur bal are key factors while planning Shodhan chikitsa. Vyadhi lakshana may be treated symptomatically. Combination of modern Diagnostic tools, Ayurvedic Chikitsa siddhant, Raskalpa are winning triod of challenging Medical Cases.
