Background: Acid peptic disease (APD) has a negative impact on patients’ quality of life and general health status of the individuals. There are a number of case studies and clinical trials on efficacy of Ayurvedic interventions in the management of APD. However, a systematic review of these researches is not available which is needed to evaluate the clinical significance of those studies. Objective: The aim of this study is to conduct a systematic review of the available evidence for the efficacy and safety of Ayurvedic interventions for APD. Methods and Analysis: On the basis of the PRISMA-P statement, a systematic review protocol has been developed. Data from electronic databases such as PubMed, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, AYUSH Research Portal, DHARA, Shodhganga, Ayurvedic Research Database, Institute for Teaching and Research in Ayurveda, Gujarat Ayurveda University, Jamnagar, Clinical trial registries, and relevant journals will be used to find articles for systematic review. Only studies that have been published in English or Hindi will be considered for inclusion in the systematic review. Data from the selected studies based on study characteristics will be extracted separately by two review authors for data analysis and quality assessment of the studies. The risk of bias in the chosen studies will be evaluated using appropriate available tools. If studies that are qualified for meta-analysis are available during the review, then it will be done. If meta-analysis is not possible, then the findings will be presented in the form of a comprehensive qualitative synthesis. Conclusion: The findings of this study will aid in determining the current state of evidence on the efficacy and safety of Ayurvedic interventions for the treatment of APD. The review will also serve as a source for researchers while planning future studies in order to generate high-quality evidence on the efficacy and safety of Ayurvedic therapies in APD.
