I have gastritis and hypertension and taking medicines for this. Pl. Suggest acupressure points for it.
The leg three miles (st 36) acupressure point is commonly used to improve digestive disorders including indigestion, diarrhea, constipation, bloating, gas, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. Plus, it boosts the immune system, fights fatigue, strengthens the body and promotes general wellness. Gb 20 or gall bladder 20 is one of the potent acupressure points for high blood pressure treatment. This point is also called the wind pool, and it is found at the back of the neck, in a depression on either side of the vertebra, right at the base of the skull. This point can be activated by applying steady medium pressure using the thumbs for 1 minute or longer while breathing deeply.

"Natural remedies to control Acidity "!!

Acidity or heartburn is the most common gastrointestinal problem experienced by adults during their lifetime. There are many over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription drugs available in the market, but if you suffer only from occasional heartburn, lifestyle changes and natural remedies may be the route you want to take.

1) Baking Soda: A spoonful of sodium bicarbonate, or teaspoon-full to be exact, can help put an end to the burning sensation of heartburn caused by acid reflux.

2) Aloe Juice: Aloe is a plant used to soothe burns, and people often think of using it to help something like sunburn, but it can do more than that. It is able to soothen the heartburn too because it reduces inflammation.

3) Don't lie down: Heartburn tends to get worse at night, due to the fact that you’re lying down when you sleep. Gravity works against you, and it’s easier for the digested contents of your stomach to back up into your esophagus, along with acid. Try elevating your head about 6 inches when you sleep by placing blocks under the legs at the head of your bed. You could also try a wedge-shaped pillow under your mattress, but don’t simply pile up extra pillows as it’s easy to slip off of them at night.

4) Don’t lie down within 3-4 hours after eating, because lying down with a full stomach makes stomach contents press harder against your lower esophageal sphincter.

5) Eat Bananas and Apples: Bananas contain natural antacids that can act as a buffer against acid reflux. If you want to try out the simplest home remedies for heartburn first, try letting a few bananas ripen up nicely and eating one every day. You can also try an apple a day. Slice one up and eat it a couple of hours before bedtime to relieve or prevent discomfort.

6) Avoid Tight Clothes: Tight fitting clothes make it more likely that the stomach contents, will push through and you will experience reflux.

7) Avoid Smoking and Drinking: Smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol can set you up for terrible reflux.

8) Watch your weight: Being overweight increases your risk of GERD, and you’re going to suffer from occasional heartburn a lot more as well. This is because unnecessarily added pounds will put pressure on your lower esophageal sphincter.

9) Buttermilk: Another simple home remedy for acidity is buttermilk. It contains lactic acid that normalizes the acidity in the stomach. You can buy buttermilk or make it yourself.

10) Cloves: Cloves can help alleviate acidity and dispel gas due to their carminative effect that increases hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Contrary to the popular belief, acidity can be caused due to low stomach acid too.

11) Cumin Seeds: Cumin seeds can also be used to treat acidity as cumin works as a great acid neutralizer. Also, it aids in digestion and relieves stomach pain.
