Treat acidity with home remedies
Acidity is a terribly uncomfortable problem, which can create a discomfort for the whole day with one wrong food. It is a gastrointestinal ailment triggered by a pathogenic infection. Read on to find the home remedies that will help you get rid of the problem.

ACIDITY IS often caused due to imbalance between the secretion of acids that help in the digestion of food in the stomach. During acidity, the movement of the gastric juice which usually carries the food from stomach to lower oesophagus becomes dysfunctional and the acid content in the stomach moves upwards into the esophagus and creates the discomfort.

The symptoms associated with acidity are constant pain in the upper abdomen, feeling hungry frequently, bitter taste in mouth, nausea, vomiting, heart burns, dyspepsia and burning sensation or pain in the stomach after meal. The acidity problem can be triggered by eating foods rich in fats like chocolates, excessive intake of alcohol, etc.

Home remedies for acidity are very effective. Ayurvedic medication is also very effective in this case. The home remedies for treating acidity are:

- drinking coconut water

- keeping a piece of jaggery into your mouth and slowly sucking it till the problem subsides.
