HOME REMEDIES FOR ACIDITY

Acidity

Acidity is a digestive disorder when you can’t digest your food properly; it brings in a burning sensation in your chest, as the stomach doesn’t allow it to land in it and pushes back the food. We often call it heartburn. Sometimes we eat wrong food at a wrong time, it might be a citrus fruit, eating irregularly, smoking excessively, and taking alcoholic drinks in excess, eating junk or fast food eating fried or oily foods, packaged food, sugary foods, spicy food, all can lead to acidity. It may also happen if you have excessive pain killers. There are many other reasons like lack of physical movements, hit your sack just after eating dinner. Even the digestive system needs some rest, this way food remains in the food pipe causing acidity the next morning. Age factor is also an important factor for causing acidity as older people get frequent acidity. There are many other things that enhance acidity like stress, depression, anger, lifestyle, eating habits and many more. Obese people and pregnant ladies are more prone to acquire acidity.

Your esophagus doesn’t let the food reach the stomach and the acid produced by it causes the backward movement of the food and you feel the pain in your abdomen, chest and neck area which makes life very uncomfortable for you. Whatever we eat gets digested by the stomach, when it produces some acids that break down the food and the digestive process begins. When these acids are produced in excess, it feels like the food is coming out, the taste of your mouth gets sore. Many times gas gets accumulated, making you acquire fat and become obese. If it is ignored, it might lead to further complication like How can constipation engulf our body?
