Must Know Diet To Keep Acidity At Bay!

MBBS, MD-Medicine, DNB-Gatroenterology

Must Know Diet To Keep Acidity At Bay!

Quite a common condition across all age groups is acidity. Gastric acids are produced in the stomach to aid in digestion, and when there is an increase in the production of the acid, the stomach lining is likely to be inflamed resulting in a host of problems.

Often caused by an inappropriate diet such as consuming too much greasy and spicy food or fasting for long or binge eating or problems with the digestive system, the condition can, however, be treated with certain foods.

Here is an account of the diet that you can follow when suffering from acidity.

  1. Coconut water: It goes without saying that coconut water contains all the essential nutrients that offer numerous health benefits. But many people are not aware of the fact that this natural drink helps in combating acidity to a great extent. Coconut water is isotonic, and this helps in keeping up the natural pH balance in the body by flushing out toxins.
  2. Banana: This fruit is considered a perfect remedy for acidity, owing to its high potassium content. Potassium helps in relieving the symptoms and discomfort caused by acidity while stimulating the stomach lining for producing the mucus that can lower down the pH levels. Moreover, the high fibre content inhibits the recurrence of acidity. Eating overripe bananas can ease the acidity caused by fasting or eating spicy foods.
  3. Muskmelon: According to the expert dietitians, muskmelon contains many nutrients along with the antioxidants and fibre which play an active role in combating different symptoms of acidity and other problems of the stomach. This fruit offers soothing effect on the digestive system by reducing the acidity levels and helping in mucus production.
  4. Cold milk: This is a practical natural aid that helps in preventing the build-up of acid in the lining of the stomach. It helps in absorbing excess acid present in the stomach and thereby relieves the burning sensation in the stomach and chest.
  5. Buttermilk: Both curd and buttermilk are known for their effectiveness in treating stomach problems. These humble milk products can beat the burning sensation by bringing about a cooling effect. It helps in reducing the discomfort and irritation in the stomach by offering the needful nutrients which can be easily digested.
  6. Hot water: Simple solutions are often overlooked in case of acidity, and people end up taking medications. Hot water is a powerful means of fighting different health issues such as acidity. Drinking warm water acts as a natural detoxifier which flushes out most of the toxins from the digestive system while lowering the amount of acidity and its allied symptoms.

Thus, the next time you get bouts of acid attacks, you can take refuge in these measures that can help you get relief from the symptoms without much delay.

Sir I have met with two pancreatic surgeries for removal of cysts, in the last 5 years. My gall bladder and spleen has been removed from my body. Now there is dense calcification in my pancreas. I never drink. Sometimes I feel pain in the abdomen and take pain killer medicines/injections. Kindly suggest if this will create problems in my life. If any treatment is available in Ayurveda to clear this dense calcification from my pancreas. Also suggest the precautions/prevention, I should do.

There is any entity called idiopathic pancreatitis. The cause is unknown. You may need to take pain killers under supervision of doctors. There are surgeries available to relieve symptoms of pancreatitis. You are at risk of developing diabetes mellitus lateron. Kindly consult a gastrointestinal surgeon nearby.

Hi, In order to overcome gastritis you need to include banana, raw cooked banana, stewed apple, curd, buttermilk, white rice, oats, clear veg soups, soya milk, fully cooked vegetables. Avoid milk, legumes and beans, citrus fruits (lemon/oranges) grapes, butter, cheese, oily/fatty foods, strong flavoured foods consisting of masala/chilli, pickles, raw vegetables, red meat and other meat products, caffeinated beverages like coffee and tea, carbonated beverages and alcohol as they might aggravate the condition of gastritis. If you are tolerating non-vegetarian food include fish (trout/sardine/tuna/salmon in stewed/baked), lean meat, skin out chicken in small quantities. Stay hydrated all the time. To avoid dizziness and weakness take almonds (skin peeled), walnut, dry dates (nut paste mixed with water as intact nut may create gastric irritation, paneer, fully cooked and mashed sprouts.

Hello. First you avoid any of rich food. Avoid sleep after meal especially noon time. You can take rest after one hour of meal. Drink half glass of water before half hour of meal. Then you start homeopathic treatment. You definitely get a relief in your compliance. Now you take dose of lycopodium 200 2 does at bed time. Don't drink water with the does. After a week revert back or consultant privately. Thanks.
