Acid peptic disorders include Peptic Ulcer Disease and Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease. While the majority of ulcers are caused by Non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) or infection with Helicobacter pylori, cigarette use and stress are also established causes of Ulcers. Acid peptic disorders are the result of distinctive, but overlapping pathogenic mechanisms leading to either excessive acid secretion or diminished mucosal defense. Helicobacter pylori infection is a factor in 85% to 100% of duodenal ulcers and 70% to 90% of gastric ulcers. Gastric erosions are diagnosed by endoscopy in 30–50% of patients on chronic NSAID therapy. Tobacco smokers are twice as likely as nonsmokers to develop ulcers. In people under severe physiological stress, ulcers may result from changes in their body's pH levels. Low Socio Economic Status is considered as a risk factor for peptic ulcer disease independent of Helicobacter pylori infection and NSAID. Current management of Acid Peptic Disorders includes the use of combination Antisecretory and Antibiotic therapy for acute Management. Since Indian population are highly exposed to any one or multiple risk factors mentioned above, it is important to find the alternative management evidences for long term Management. Hence Randomly selected Case Records of 30 Acid Peptic Disorder Patients treated with Homoeopathic Medications at Vinayaka Mission’s Homoeopathic Medical College Hospital, Salem, Tamilnadu were retrospectively analyzed for the effectiveness. This Study results showed that the Homoeoapthic medicines Robinia, Natrum sulphuricum, Arsenicum album, Hepar sulphuricum, Bryonia, Eupetorium and Hydrastis Canadensis were found to be effective in treating Acid Peptic Disorders. The Retrospective Case Series analysis has shown that 56.67% of cases showed marked improvement, 33.33% of cases showed moderate improvement and 10% of cases showed mild improvement.
