Acidity

Acidity is the phenomenon of increased acid in one's stomach. Stomach secrets acid that breaks food into smaller components for proper digestion. The increased acidic content cause erosion of gastric mucosa (a protective layer) leading to open sores. The reflux of this acid is the cause of heartburn and acid burps.

The usual symptoms are :

  • Pain/stiffness in the upper abdomen
  • Burning in the throat
  • Vomiting
  • Lack of appetite
  • Restlessness
  • Bad breathe
  • Heartburn
  • Acid burps

Ayurveda finds aggravation of Pitta as the cause of hyperacidity. Excessively oily and spicy foods along with skipping regular timely meals are some of the major reasons for this problem.

Common cures to treat acidity are avoiding spicy foods and inducing alkali environment inside the stomach by taking foods alkaline in nature.
