Amlapitta is a disease prevalent all over the world. The increasing prevalence rate is a constant challenge to the research workers. Amlapitta is very common disease caused due to Agnimandhya (digestive impairment) by increased Drava Guna of Vidagdha Pachaka Pitta (liquid quality of burned digestive Pitta) affecting the Annavaha Strotas (channels that carry the ingested food) and characterized by primary symptoms such as Avipaka (indigestion), Klama (exhaustion without any exertion). This is a burning problem in the society because of irregular and improper food habits and stressful lifestyle. The aim of the present study was to find out efficacy of Yashtimadhu and Guduchi in Amlapitta.  In present study total 30 patients were taken, divided into 3 equal groups. In Group-I: 10 patients were treated with oral administration of Yashtimadhu, in Group-II: 10 patients were treated with Guduchi and in Group-III: 10 patients were treated with Yashtimadhu and Guduchi. After conducting clinical trial on 30 patients, observation and results were obtained. Statistical analysis shows that all three groups were significantly effective to reduce the cardinal symptoms, especially Group-III (Yashtimadhu and Guduchi).
