Ayurvedic Treatment for acidity
Acidity is described as an assortment of symptoms shown by an inconsistency in the acid-secreting mechanism of the stomach, proximal intestine, and protective mechanisms to ensure their safety.
The stomach secretes an acid that is essential for the digestive process. Here acid helps in breaking down the food during digestion. When there is the excess formation of acid by the gastric glands of the stomach, it results in the condition known as acidity.
Acidity is responsible for signs like dyspepsia, heartburn, and the formation of ulcers (erosion of the lining of the stomach or intestines). Acidity is in a higher percentage of highly emotional and nervous individuals. Intake of alcohol, highly spicy foodstuffs, non-vegetarian diets, and Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAID's) also predispose to gastric acidity. Most of the times, acidity does not cause by a severe medical condition
