i have an acute dharan problem in my stomach due to which i cant digest.please guide what to do.

You have mentioned that your problem is acute but you have not mentioned how long you have been suffering from it. Nor have you mentioned if you have seen your doctor or not. Your problem could be a sign of a deeper lying ailment so please see a doctor before it is too late. Once the doctor examines you would know the exact cause of your problem and that would help you to get proper treatment so you will feel better sooner. It could also be due to certain strong medicines that you maybe taking, in that case your doctor would help you out by changing your medicines. Indigestion occurs when your body is unable to digest and assimilate the food that you eat. Indigestion can be caused due to several reasons like poor eating habits, eating too fast, not chewing your food properly, eating with your mouth open, consuming junk food, eating excessively oily and spicy food, overeating, an underlying medical condition, certain medicines, etc. Indigestion can lead to other health problems like constipation, improper bowel movement, etc. To avoid indigestion besides practicing yoga you need to take care of some general things such as eating more small meals instead of few large meals, chew your food well, avoid consuming fatty, spicy, food, alcohol, tea and coffee, get proper rest and avoid being stressed and worried.

Yoga works in a systematic manner to clear the blockages so your digestive system functions properly and you no longer suffer from indigestion. Certain yoga asanas that are inverted are extremely beneficial for treating indigestion since they force your blood to flow in the opposite direction. This helps to take the strain off from your lower body and when you return to your normal position the blood rushes back, this helps to clear any blockages and also nourishes your system with a fresh supply of fresh blood and oxygen so your system rejuvenates itself and functions at its optimum level. You may practice Pranayama or the different breathing techniques and the yoga asanas as listed below:

Trikonasana or the triangle pose, Parsvakonasana or the Extended Side Angle pose, Virabhadrasana I, II, III or the Warrior poses I, II, III, Ustrasana or the Camel pose, Sirshasana or the Head stand, Sarvangasana or the Shoulder stand, Paschimottanasana or the forward bend pose, Pavanamuktasana or the wind relieving pose, Vajrasana or the diamond pose or the thunderbolt pose.
