Hyper acidity is also called Acid Dyspepsia, which is one of the most common problems. Hyperacidity is a medical condition in which the stomach secretes a lot of acids. It can be caused due to various medications, stressed lifestyle and spicy foods. Hyperacidity has various symptoms, which can include sudden stomach pain, vomiting, loss of appetite, flatulence and heartburn. Sometimes, the problem aggravates and leads to other complications such as chronic indigestion and gastric ulcers. Following are some of the symptoms of acidity – oRespiratory problems oCoughing oVomiting oLong heartburn oStomach and chest pain oFlatulence oBloating oStomach ulcers oPain in ears oGastroesophageal reflux oPain in muscular contraction oInadequate weight and turning down food in infants are the symptoms of acidity. Hyperacidity is known as Amlapitta in Ayurveda (Amla means sour and Pitta means heat). Hyperacidity therefore is a condition characterized by an increase of sourness and heat in the body. The aggravated Pitta impairs the digestive fire, leading to improper digestion of food and production of toxins. The Ayurvedic treatment of Hyperacidity is focused on pacifying the aggravated Pitta Dosha. Cleansing herbs are also administered to eliminate toxins from the body and cleanse the channels. This automatically enhances the digestive fire, leading to better digestion. Diet & Lifestyle Advice •Avoid tea, coffee, and carbonated or alcoholic beverages. •Avoid processed and fermented foods. •Avoid using garlic, ginger, onions, tomatoes, and vinegar in cooking. •Also avoid rich gravies, sour, salty, and spicy foods. •Curd should be strictly avoided at night. •Take meals in a relaxed atmosphere at regular intervals.

Heartburn - 5 Remedies That Can Help Treat it

Heartburn - 5 Remedies That Can Help Treat it

Heartburn can be a very discomforting condition and affects almost everyone at some point in his or her life. This is a condition wherein the stomach acids back up through the esophagus resulting in a burning sensation, especially near the chest area. Quick-relief medications can help you deal with them for a particular episode. However, recurring deposits might warrant changes in diet and lifestyle. Some of the long and short term remedies are mentioned below:

Short term remedies to deal with heartburn

  1. Eat a banana or an apple: A few slices of banana and apples can introduce acids into your stomach which will counteract the stomach acids and thus help reduce heart burn.
  2. Use baking soda and water as a home remedy: This is another quick fix if you don’t have anything at home when suffering from heartburn. If you mix half to a full spoon of baking soda with water and then drink slowly, it will immediately help relieve symptoms. However, don’t make this a regular remedy as it may cause side effects such as nausea and swelling.
  3. Ginger root tea: Making tea with ginger is another great home remedy which can easily relieve heart burn.
  4. Chew gum when you have heartburn: This is helpful as the constant stimulation within the mouth due to chewing gum helps with saliva production. The excess production of saliva helps wash away the acids that have built up in the stomach. Once the acid recedes, it helps in relieving or eliminating heartburn.
  5. Aloe Vera Juice: Drinking aloe vera juice helps in relieving heart burn very easily. It helps control inflammation in both the esophagus and the stomach and relieves pain from heartburn. However, regular use isn’t recommended as it can act like a laxative.

Long term lifestyle changes

  1. Change your Sleeping habits: Try to sleep on the left side of your body and ensure that your upper body is in a slightly raised position as this will stop the stomach acids form coming up into the esophagus.
  2. Watch what you eat, when you eat and how quickly you eat: It is advisable to not only maintain a fixed time of eating but also try to eat slowly as it give the stomach more time to adjust in digesting the food, thereby ensuring controlled secretion of the acids.
  3. Avoid smoking and alcohol: These are common triggers for heartburn and avoiding them will show results in a relatively short period of time. It is advisable to stop smoking and reduce alcohol consumption to once a week or even lesser.
  4. Wear loose fitting clothes: Wear clothes which are loose as this would free up your stomach. Tight clothing can push stomach acids up the esophagus and it is advisable to loosen up clothing to relieve symptoms.

From last three months my wife feels pain on anus and between hips on third day of her period on every cycle. Due to such pain, itching & burning she is not able to use pads. It only happens from third day and lasts for next three days. Please guide urgent.

Your wife must be having allergic reaction to pads. Ask her to maintain proper perineal hygiene, change pads 2-3 times a day. Apply candid dusting powder over that area. If the Problem continues she can use clean cotton cloth instead of pafs.
