How To Avoid Acidity
  • Say Goodbye To Acidity

 1.What is acidity or acid reflux?
  • Acidity in the stomach is the result of excess
    gastric acid production that may cause heartburn
    and other problems. Acidity is of two kinds, one
    is heartburn and the other is dyspepsia.  It can
    happen in two compartments, one is the chest
    compartment, resulting into heartburn and the
    abdominal compartment. The chest compartment
    experiences reflux, heartburn, and chest pain.
    Heartburn is caused due to the acid reflux into
    the food pipe. On the other hand, acidity leads
    to abdominal burning, bloating, indigestion and
    constant belching.

2. What are the major causes of acidity?
  • Diet 
  • Unhealthy diet like eating spicy or oily food,
    overeating and eating late night dinners can
    cause acidity. Fewer intakes of vegetables,
    fruits, fiber, nuts and salads, drinking excess
    fruit juices, sodas, alcohol, beverages and cold
    drinks can increase the symptoms. Preference
    should be given to fruit over fruit juices as it
    will cause heartburns. Sleeping immediately after
    eating should be completely shunned. Eating after
    regular intervals and cutting down on water
    intakes to 100ml to 200ml per meal is advisable.

  • Lifestyle 
  • Lifestyle Changes should be encouraged, adequate
    sleep approximately 7 to 8 hrs should be taken.
    Regularity of sleep is extremely
    important. Rising and sleeping at the same fixed
    time needs to be maintained. More stress leads to
    more acidity. When you are stressed out the acid
    production in your stomach will be more.

  • Obesity or excess weight 
  • Lack of physical exercise will make you prone to
    acidity. Do physical exercise regularly and
    properly. We need to balance our lifestyle.

  • Medicines 
  • Some medicines can lead to acidity. Indigestion
    can lead to a damage of the intestine. Older
    people, consume more aspirin kind of medicines
    which can lead to acidity. Acidity is a
    combination of factors. Medicines cannot tie down
    the factors for long.

4. Can mental stress aggravate acidity?  
  • The most sensitive part of the body is the
    stomach and intestines. They react to your
    emotions. There is a link between your brain and
    the intestines. When you are stressed you are
    exhausted or fatigued it causes anxiety to your
    brain. Similarly, the intestines respond by
    showing anxiety. When stressed out the output and
    efficiency becomes less. The intestines also work
    less and erratically under mental stress. People
    might face abnormal stool, bloating or
    constipation in these situations.

 4. Can consistent acidity problem lead to
serious problems in future?
  • Acidity cannot lead to serious problem. It is
    only the fear in the minds of the patients that
    brings them to a doctor. It has no long lasting
    effects. It is a harmless entity but emotional
    anxiety can enhance it. One needs to adopt
    corrective measures to stop acidity from
    recurring. The cause needs to be identified for

5. Please suggest any immediate relief from
acidity at home?
  • Over the counter medicines like Gelusil, Digene
    can be consumed but overuse of these medicines
    should be restricted. Using these medicines once
    a week is acceptable but over usage can affect
    your kidneys and can have a long term side
    effect. Correcting all the possible factors
    responsible for acidity can cure your acidity
