Unnatural lifestyle and dietary habits have caused life threatening gastrointestinal disease (GIDs) such as Acid Peptic Disease (APDs). About 7 lakh people died in 2002 due to stomach cancer and 60 to 70 million people are suffering from various GIDs in US. The aim of the study is to analyze the yoga therapy and lifestyle moderation on GIDs related to APDs like Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), hyperacidity, gastric and duodenal ulcer, by accessing the databases-Google Scholar, Pub Med, Medline, Elsevier and Willey, and other noted research journals, books and online sources. Lastly the paper will stress significance of yoga and natural lifestyle practices to prevent and moderate APDs as compared to pharmacological treatments.
