INTRODUCTION
Acidity is one of the most common problems seen
in everyone, including the clients of Truweight.
While acidity isnt a major condition like
diabetes or heart disease but the discomfort it
causes is equivalent or even more! There could be
numerous reasons of you suffering from acidity.
For different cases, the reasons or causes
differ, the dietary approach has to be custom-
ized according to their causes. Do you suffer
from acidity and are brushing it under the
carpet? Dont avoid it, instead Consult a
Truweight Nutrition Coach for FREE.

ARE THEIR ANY ACIDITY SYMPTOM
TO LOOK OUT FOR?
Usual Symptoms of acidity
Heartburn or a burning sensation in the chest.
Sometimes it can be present in the throat
too. Indigestion Constipation Restlessness
Nausea Burping Sour taste

COMMON ACIDITY-RELATED FOOD MYTHS,
FINALLY BUSTED!
Having an attack? People will rush to you with a
bunch of solutions. The most common and popular
one being the cold milk! However does it really
work? We explore 2 such foods which are supposed
to cure acidity permanently.
5
IS COLD MILK GOOD FOR ACIDITY?
Cold milk only provides temporary relief from
heartburn or acid reflux. If you happen to drink
cold milk on a full stomach, then chances of it
releasing acid increases. Instead, go for a
glass of water!
6
WHICH FRUIT JUICE IS GOOD FOR ACIDITY?
Avoid citrus fruit juices instead, go for the
vegetable juices like carrot juice, aloe vera
juice, apple juice, and green leafy juice are
fine. Citrus fruits can increase acid
secretion. Whenever consulting a dietician for a
diet, make sure you run through your dietician
with your food sensitivities, if you have any.
7
WHAT ARE THE REASONS FOR ACIDITY?
There are 11 most common causes of acidity. We
list them down for you. Long gaps between
meals Irregular meal timings, long and odd
working hours are some of the common reasons.
Most people working the night shift have acidity
and other gastric problems.
8
SENSITIVE TO SOUR FOODS
Many people cannot tolerate sour foods, this can
aggravate their acidity. For some, acidity can
be aggravated even with mild acidic food.
Usually, acid containing food like Trujuice,
Amla drink, lemon water, citrus fruits are not
tolerated on empty stomach. You can try to eat
them at different timing by combining with a
neutral food.
9
TOO MUCH COFFEE OR TEA
This again is a common cause. When taken on an
empty stomach, tea or coffee could trigger
acidity. High fibre foods Many women face
acidity problems after starting on high fibre
foods like brown rice, vegetable juice, raw
salads, sprouts etc. In such cases, they can
gradually proceed from white rice to
semi-polished rice. Boiled or steamed vegetables
and sprouts are rather better than raw. They can
consume Trufi- ber with small quantity until
they are comfortable to increase further.
10
GUT BACTERIA IMBALANCE
Imbalance in the gut bacteria can also cause
acidity. This can be tackled by having probiotic
supplements and foods with a natural probiotic
like butter- milk. Spicy food Most people with a
cidity complaint cannot tolerate spicy food as spi
ces increase acid secretions in the stomach.
11
LOW ACID LEVEL
While acidity always brings out the image of
excess acid secretion bloating and indigestion
also falls under this category. For many people,
low stomach acid production can hinder digestion
and cause bloating. In such cases, acid- ity and
bloating can be managed by dietary modification.
Adding a few acidic foods can help.
12
Lack of sleep
  • Too much stress
  • Other food sensitivities
  • Food sensitivities like alcohol, gluten, dairy
    etc can also cause acidity.
  • Medications
  • Antibiotics, steroids, anti-depressants etc can
    lead to low acid levels.
  • Bottom-line Understand the underlying cause of
    acidity and the related symptoms. The first and
    foremost thing would be to eliminate the cause
    rather than giving our own remedies.

13
TRUWEIGHT TIP
Usual Symptoms of acidity Hyperacidity is a
medical condition wherein the stomach is known to
secrete an abnormal level of acid. Hurry, worry,
and spicy curry are the reasons for
hyperacidity. How to know if you have
hyperacidity? Well, you will have symptoms like
sudden stomach pain, vomiting, loss of appetite,
flatulence, and heartburn.
14
HOW TO CURE ACIDITY PERMANENTLY?
You can say goodbye to acidity forever by
tweaking your lifestyle. Here are 4 simple ways
you can do that.
15
EATING AND LIFESTYLE
Acidity can be conquered by simply tweaking your
diet. For starters, always prefer foods that are
low in fat but high in protein! So when given an
option to consume grilled chicken sandwich or
paneer sand- wich or pizza go for the protein
sandwich. Eating small frequent meals is also a
trick so that you give something to your stomach
acid to keep working on. And importantly
remember Hara Hachi Bu which means dont stuff
yourself till you feel full.
16
KNOW YOUR TRIGGERS
Does chocolate bring out the acidity attack or is
it that can of cola? DO you feel your throat
burning after that evening cup of coffee? Then
try eliminating these foods from your diet and
notice if it makes a difference!
17
SLEEP MAKES THE DIFFERENCE!
To counter acidity, you need to get 8 hours of
sleep. Sure! But according to WebMD, these
sleeping positions can help you counter the flush
of stomach acid into your food pipe. Trick 1
Place few logs of wood under the head of the bed.
This will help keep the con- tents of the
stomach to travel up and prevent heartburn. More
pillows under your head dont help so
much. Trick 2 Give a gap of 2-3 hours after
dinner
18
ADOPTING A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
  • Acidity is not a serious condition, you can
    overcome it if you follow some healthy lifestyle
    tips.
  • Apart from these healthy lifestyle tips, you can
    remember these points too
  • Dont wear tight belts or pants as it can put
    pressure on your belly. It could make the
    stomach acid travel upwards into the food pipe to
    cause heartburn.
  • If you are obese or overweight, then it is just
    like like wearing a tight belt! Lose some weight
    now. Here is a good start for you, a free
    consultation from a Truweight nutritionist.
  • Stop smoking if you do! Smoking increases the
    secretion of stomach acid and this one cant be
    managed simply by dietary changes.

SOME HOME REMEDIES FOR ACIDITY
Although doctors may recommend an antacid
whenever you are down with a bad bout of
acidity, some home remedies can be the first step
to cure acidity permanently. We list them down
and how to eat them for you. Banana Ripe bananas
have potassium which can reduce the production of
stomach acid. Overripe ones have even more! So
when everything seems to be burning up, douse
the flames with a ripe banana Tulsi Chewing on
5-6 tulsi leaves can help abate the acid waves in
the body. Why tulsi? Because it helps produce
mucous, the slimy protective layer in the food
pipe which makes it immune to the acid
attack. Aniseed or saunf The volatile oils in
these fragrant seeds does the trick. Chew a few
and find relief. Or add a teaspoon in a glass of
hot water, strain and drink the water. Jeera,
clove and elaichi This is for indigestion
related acidity. All these masalas help
stimulate the saliva and jack up the digestion
process. Mint leaves Just as mint is associated
with a cooling effect, it does exactly the same
to your stomach too. Chew a few leaves or boil
them in water to have their essence. Amla
According to Ayurveda, amlas vitamin C is a
kappha and pitta pacifier! A tea- spoon of amla
powder consumed twice a day can do the trick.
