Digestive Acids

1. Following four golden principles of drinking water is the key to all stomach issues and they are:-

  (a) Always drink water which is at body temperature, neither chill nor hot.

  (b) Always sit down before drinking water.

  (c) Always sip water like a bird, never gulp it down.

  (d) Drink water 40 minutes before meals and two hours after meals. No water during meals.

2. Always eat 50% of your meal as salad and raw vegetables.

3. Minimum five hours of gap between two meals. Ideal is to have only two meals a day.

4. Dinner two hours before you sleep, best is 7.30 PM.

Taking antacids will worsen the problem in long run though momentarily they will provide relief.

Acidity problem have been seen in a large proportion in Indian society. This is directly linked to eating patterns and type of food you consume however it varies from individual to individual based on their body's physiological function. You mentioned about the antacid but they only provide symptomatic relief for some time .

  •  Try to have complex carbohydrates like potatoes,  ensure that they are simply boiled not fried. 
  • Having fresh fruits like apple and banana will lower the acidic content. 
  • Say no to highly fried or junk food. 
  • Do not remain empty stomach  for long time especially have a proper breakfast. 
  • Do not drink water during the meal. 

One home remedy is take 50 grams of munakka(a type of raisin) and 25 gram of fennel , grind them properly and soak the mixture in lukewarm water for  one day. Strain it in the next morning and have the liquid.

First of all, if you are on animal products, processed foods like sugar, oils etc, gut will be compromised. In a compromised state even the healthiest of fruits will seem to give you a bloated feeling. So the best to understand that the first step is to remove all the unwanted foods like diary, meat , eggs, sugar, wheat , maida , rawa , wheat products, packaged foods, fried, sweets etc 

Go on a tender coconut diet for 3 days. If you crave to eat, have only fruits. Start taking a water enema daily once after the normal potty. 

This will clear and give some room to breathe and digestion to slow down and clear the existing junk. 

The next step is to put only raw all day and majorly juices from veggies and eat fruits and greens all day and in the night , include a handful of millet and more steamed veggies. All foods must not contain any oil forever. Do get back to us to understand how oilfree cooking is done. We suggest that you stay on a fruit and veg salad juices diet for 10-15 days and then add grains for dinner only.  This will help.

To heal the digestive system you need to give it ample rest. 

1 Stop eating over processed foods. Like cooked,  fried  or food made by complicated process. All foods fresher and closer to its natural form would be the easiest for your stomach to digest. 

Fresh local seasonal fruits would be best choice. Followed by veggies and greens.  Start your first meal as late in the morning as possible. And eat only when hungry. Never over eat. Finish your last meal before sunset.

2 connect with nature. Spend time out doors with nature. Sun, fresh air and the Mother Earth are  also your source of energy so embrace them with open arms. 

3 Sleep well. Be calm and happy. Check your bowel movement, it must be regular.

4 During the healing when ever there is bloating or burning sesnsation you may use a hip bath. If not you could go for a wet wrap around your stomach to calm down the acids for the time being. 

Be healthy be happy always

Management for acidity
1)drink Ash gourd juice on each alternate day. 
2) take excess amount of fiber rich diet in your food
3)avoid taking ice cold water because it will imbalance the action of digestive juice. So hot water is good.
4)jeera water also good to relieve acidity
5)observe in your condition whats the cause of gastritis? I mean whether it may due to skipping meals, less fiber intake, any aggrevating food factors (spicy, oily, fried, non veg). Prevention is better than cure so please understand the cause and eliminate it.

If you do not follow proper sleep managment and eating on time. taking stress slowly your system gives health issues.

It is caused when the valve between the esophagus and stomach becomes weak. Avoid Increased intake of tea or coffee, or oily, spicy, or fried foods aggravates Pitta and leads to acidity.

Drink lot of water, eat fruits especially seasonal fruits on regular basis you will see good improvement in your health. Also drink vegetable juice like carrot, beetroot and one amla, filter and drink this juice once in a week to see good improvement. Drink fresh tender coconut water. Do prayanama.

Whenever you drink water always pray for a minute saying that this water should heal your body naturally. You will see positive results.
