Regularity of meals is the top priority to cure it. Proper sleep and bland diet is needed. Avipatikar churan 500 and kamdugdha ras offer good cure . it is administered twice a day. If there is associated pain also chitrak vati can be added. to help digestion and prevent gas formation sy. ojus can be added.

General & Family Physician Dr. Mohammed Tauseef's  Response
Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
What is your Father's height and weight? IS he overweight or obese? He is suffering acute gastritis if ultrasonography is not showing any pathology. Get him examined by a Physician to rule out the exact cause. He should bring in some lifestyle changes. If he smokes or drink ask him to, QUIT. He should be eating healthy nutritious balanced diet which should include fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. He should be avoiding stress, eating and sleeping on time. He should sleep for 8 hours minimum in the night. He should be exercising regularly along with brisk walks for 30 to 40 minutes daily. He should be eating smaller, more frequent meals, Avoid foods that irritate stomach, especially those that are spicy, acidic, fried or fatty. He should be practicing relaxation techniques like Yoga and Meditation. Let him take Tab. Pantodac 40mg once daily half hour before breakfast on empty stomach for a week after consulting his Doctor and go for regular follow up. Let him have his supper 2 hours before bedtime and sleep with his head end elevated. Ask him to drink plenty of water.

I Wish him Good Health, Take Care.
