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.

I am suffering from acidity. When I ate spicy food my stomach burns. What should I do?

I am suffering from acidity. When I ate spicy food my stomach burns. What should I do?
Hello- Suffer from acidity or acid reflux too often and are tired of having antacids? Well, there are natural remedies you can get rid of the problem. Thought to be due to increased pitta or the lack of digestive fire, Ayurveda prescribes a number of remedies for the condition. Not only are these home remedies sans any side-effects, they will also help resolve the discomfort that comes with hyperacidity in jiffy. So to help you beat heartburn, here are 10 home remedies that actually work. You can also get quick relief from acidity with this yoga pose. (Beware, sometimes what seems like acidity could actually be a heart attack, especially in women). 1. Eat a ripe banana for some relief. You could also eat an overripe banana to beat an especially bad bout of acidity, as they tend to contain more potassium which makes it the perfect antidote. 2. Chewing on five to six tulsi leaves when you suffer from acidity is a great way to beat the discomfort you feel. 3. It is essential that you have the milk cold and without any additives like sugar. You could even mix it with a spoon of ghee to make the remedy even more effective. 4. While simply chewing on a few saunf seeds can help reduce the symptoms of acidity, as a long term remedy, boil a few seeds in water and leave overnight, drink this water during the day when you feel uneasy. 5. You can chew a few seeds of jeera to relieve acidity or boil it in water and drink the solution when it has cooled down. 6. In case you’re suffering from acidity, bite a clove once so that the juice is released and then keep it in the mouth. The slowly released juice will immediately lower acid reflux and give you some relief. 7. To relieve acidity crush two pods of cardamom (with or without the skin), boil the powder in water and drink the cooled juice for instant relief. 8. If you feel an attack coming on chop some mint leaves, add them to a pot of boiling water and drink this water after it cools. You could also try mint to calm indigestion 9. For relief from acidity, chew a small piece of ginger. If you find that too pungent, try boiling it in water and drinking the decoction. Another remedy is to crush ginger, mix it with a small piece of jaggery and keeping sucking on it allowing the juice to slowly reach the stomach. 10. Amla is a kapha and pitta pacifier apart from having high amounts of vitamin C that helps in healing the injured stomach lining and oesophagus.

Dear lybrate user, you need to take homoeopathic carbo veg 200, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach. You can also try homoeopathic liver tonic liv-t (sbl company).
