What if I intake sour food in acidity?
Should smoking cause acidity?
Is alcohol cause acidity?
Sour food per se is acidic in nature. So it will definitely add on the acidity discomfort that you are already having. As far as smoking and alcohol goes, they also increase acidity if consumed on regular basis. One should avoid these substances as they r harmful otherwise also.

How to get relief from sudden acidity attack by home remedies in absence of ENO or any other acidity relief medicines.

How to get relief from sudden acidity attack by home remedies in absence of ENO or any other acidity relief medicines.
Eat small meals. Instead of 3 big meals, have 5 small meals every 3-4 hours. Eat slowly. Don’t sleep on a full stomach. Try to have an early dinner. Make sure there is a gap of 3 hours between your last meal and bed time. Wear loose-fitting clothes. Avoid certain known foods which cause acidity like, coffee, tea, colas, and citrus fruits, oily and spicy food. If your weight is high – losing a few kilos will reduce acidity too. Keep a gap of 2 hours between exercise and meals. Drink at least 3 litres of water every day. Try meditation and yoga to minimise daily stress.

Hi, ask him to get some physical exercise. Sedentary habits are having the effects like acidity and regurgitation with vomiting. A lite walk for 30 mins twice a day will help him a lot. Also keeping more of fruits and raw salads will provide fibre which will reduce his acidity and will feel relived. For medication go for homoeopathy, thanks.
