Breaking Free From PPIs: A Functional Medicine Approach to Managing Acidity

Food, Medicines, and Lies The Health Talk series by Dr. Priti


Do you find yourself reaching for your proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) like clockwork each day to keep the burning sensation of acidity at bay? Millions across India do just the same, trapped in a cycle that brings temporary relief but not a long-term solution. Enter functional medicine—a new approach to managing acidity. This blog post explores how Dr. Priti Nanda Sibal uses functional medicine to liberate patients from the chronic use of PPIs.

Understanding Acidity and PPIs

Acidity or acid reflux is a common condition resulting from the stomach producing an excess of acid. Many combat this with PPIs, which are effective in reducing symptoms but are not a cure. Long-term use of PPIs can also lead to side effects, opening up a need for alternatives.

Unveiling Functional Medicine

Functional medicine is an alternative, holistic approach to healthcare. Instead of silencing symptoms, functional medicine aims to get to the root cause of health issues. By focusing on the patient as a whole, it fosters a personalized path to long-term health.

Functional Medicine's Answer to Acidity

In functional medicine, acidity is seen as a symptom of an underlying imbalance in the body. Dr. Sibal employs this approach to analyze factors like diet, stress, and lifestyle that might contribute to acidity. She then crafts a personalized plan that involves dietary changes, lifestyle modifications, and targeted supplements to help restore balance and manage acidity.

Dr. Priti Nanda Sibal's approach has transformed lives. Like Mrs. Verma, who, after years of being on PPIs, was able to manage her acidity through a functional medicine-based plan, including diet changes and stress management techniques. Stories like hers validate the potential of functional medicine.


There's a world beyond PPIs for acidity management, and it starts with understanding the root cause. Functional medicine offers hope for those who wish to break free from the chronic use of PPIs and pursue a sustainable, personalized path to wellness.
