Introduction

Food intolerance is called Aahar Asatmyata in Ayurveda. It occurs when you eat any viruddha aahar or the wrong combination of foods. When you eat incompatible foods then they are not properly digested and can be converted into Ama visha (toxins) which can act as antigens to your body resulting in allergic reactions. 

Body channel hyperactivity is called srotas Atipravruti where your body causes hypersensitivity reactions in response to certain allergens. Allergens can be dust, pollen, drugs and certain foods.

The above shloka from Ayurveda explains food intolerance. 

It explains the concept of virudha. Virudha or incompatibility refers to the condition in which doshas get vitiated in the body and cannot be expelled out from the body. This may occur when someone eats a mismatching combination of food items, having food at the wrong place, improper time, inappropriate amounts etc.

Dr Gupta’s treatment approach involves eliminating the root cause and giving 100% herbal medicines to get cured.
