ACIDITY Cause and cure

What is Acidity, how to control and how it is caused

Natural Methods to cure Acidity

Many diseases are our own callings, i.e, we invite them ourselves by our faulty lifestyles. In medical terminology acidity is termed as ‘ gastrophysial reflex disease’. Ayurveda terms it as ‘Amla pitta’. Every second person today suffers from this problem. Acidity hampers the body’s digestive process.



According to the modern science, for proper digestion of food in the stomach, hydrochloric acid and pepsin is secreted. Normally this gastric juice containing HCl and Pepsin remains in the stomach and do not come in contact with the food pipe, oesophagus. This is because of special sphincter muscles present at the junction of oesophagus and stomach which specialized to prevent regurgitation of food in the food pipe. But in abnormal condition these muscles fails to close the passage between the stomach and food pipe. This leads to regurgitation of gastric juice containing HCl in the food pipe causing ulcers and inflammation of the oesophagus. Sedentary lifestyles, improper diet, caffeinated drinks, pollution and alcohol are the main cause of Acidity.
