There is an ongoing need for improvements in non-invasive techniques for the diagnostic and prognosis of gastric problem.
Such technologies would allow for accuracy in results over huge number of patients. In India, there are two types of Medical
Treatment systems (MTS) using drugs namely, English Medical Treatment systems (EMTS) and Ayurveda, Unani and siddha
Treatment system(AUSTS).Due to modern food habits, 70% of the population suffering from gastric problem. To find the
characteristics and properties of drugs given for the treatment of gastric problem by both type of physicians, the samples are
taken for experiment using Fourier transform Infrared spectrometer. In this method the Infrared spectrum originates from
the vibrational motion of the molecules. This property is used for characterization of biological compounds. Spectral analysis
revealed differences in both the treatment systems and also several metabolic components such as lipid, proteins, glucose, and
carboxylate presence in the taken samples for test. The spectral analysis indicated that the specific functional groups of the drug
materials have almost the same chemical characteristics but different reactions in the human body.
