Tackling Acidity With Ayurveda
Did you know? With the help of Hydrochloric Acid, we digest the food that we eat. The cells within our stomach linings pump acid to liquefy that delicious dinner. Acidity or Acid Reflux is a problem where large amounts of acid is produced, more than what your stomach requires. The most well-known sign of acidity is feeling a burning sensation just above the stomach.
Ayurveda's concept of health is a balance in the doshas, the principal energies of the body. Out of which, the 'Pitta' Dosha regulates metabolism. Pitta is basically the heat energy within our cells, which becomes one of the major causes of acidity, when imbalanced. In times when staying home is necessary, problems like acid reflux are common, let's see how we can tackle this the ancient way.
Early Signs of Acidity
A lot of hints are given by the body that proves you are suffering from acidity. Improper food combinations sometimes play a major role, leading to digestive problems. A key aspect in Ayurveda states the importance of Agni - the digestive fire. Agni ensures digestion & if it weakens, it leads to excessive acid production. Below are some of the acidity symptoms that are observed on a daily basis -
- Lack of Appetite
- Bitter taste in mouth
- Signs of Heartburn
- Respiratory problems
- Difficulty swallowing
- Chest & Stomach pain
The Ayurveda Tackle
Ayurveda's holistic approach focuses on silencing the aggravated Pitta Dosha, herbal supplements reduce the toxins from the body & cleanses the channels, enhancing the digestive fire & leading to better digestion.
Ayurveda believes that the Pitta imbalance arises due to stress, improper diet, sleep deficit, lack of exercise, and overeating fatty & oily foods. There are many measures that you can take in order to manage acidity, some of the essentials that Ayurveda advises are as follows -
- Following a specific diet, avoiding oily, spicy, and fatty foods
- Having your food at the same time daily & staying hydrated
- Stay away from processed & fermented foods
- Avoid garlic, ginger, onions, tomatoes & vinegar in cooking
- No curd at night
- Physical activity is a must
- Stimulants like coffee, tea, and alcohol must be avoided
- A good night sleep will help the body's metabolism
