Homeopathy for Acidity

What Is Acidity?

Acidity is caused due to the excess production of stomach acid that flows back up into the food pipe. It is characterized by heartburn that is felt around the lower chest area. Heartburn is the burning sensation that is felt around the stomach and the throat. The pH of the gastric acid is about 1.5 to 3.5. The condition where the hydrochloric acid (HCL) production in the gastric secretions is absent or low is called the Achlorhydria or hypochlorhydria. The secretion of the HCL in the gastric mucosa is controlled both by hormones and the nervous system. When the stomach produces too many acids, it can have several unpleasant symptoms. What can cause high stomach acid? Several conditions can lead to high stomach acid.

Acidity, heartburn, dyspepsia, and flatulence are mostly functional gastric disturbances initially. And in most cases, it is caused by a faulty lifestyle and bad habits. Some of the major culprits are high-stress life, irregular dietary patterns, faulty nutritional habits like eating over-spiced food, eating fast without chewing, overeating, lying down immediately after eating, alcohol, smoking, etc.

How to Avoid Gastric Disturbances?

When it is still a functional disturbance, there are chances that it can be controlled or cured by some lifestyle modifications and some home remedies. The most important thing is to reduce the stress to a minimum. Some minor lifestyle changes can reduce stress like doing work on time, avoiding procrastination, setting a timetable and following it strictly, and avoiding bad habits like alcohol and smoking.

Just a simple change of chewing the food properly can solve half of the gastric problems. It improves digestion, reduces the difficulty for the stomach and intestine to do digestion, and to some extent, reduces food quantity. Walking for 15 minutes to 20 minutes after a heavy meal, eating dinner before 8 PM, and sleeping on time can remove the significant irregularities.

Here are a few tips to avoid acidity:

What Are the Easiest Ways to Prevent Acidity?

Some of the above solutions are impossible to follow, like those who do shift jobs. Let us see what they can do to overcome this situation. A simple rule is that our body works on a biological clock, which can reduce side effects if maintained. You can achieve this by getting adequate sleep and eating at the same time daily.

What Are the Side Effects of Antacids on the Body?

Most of the patients suffering from acidity resort to the regular use of antacids and soda, which are very harmful to the body. There are many side effects to those who take them blindly without knowing their cons. The more you take it, the body tries to compensate with more acid secretion, and then it becomes almost impossible to manage it without taking pills daily.

What Are the Homeopathic Remedies for Acidity?

My suggestion is to either try to manage it with the above-suggested modification or, if it does not help, take homeopathic treatment, which has no side effects and gives long-lasting relief.

Homeopathy is a natural way of curing acidity with zero side effects. Long-standing acidity can be problematic for people who are experiencing it. Homeopathy has an answer for all patients suffering from chronic acidity. Along with lifestyle modifications and homeopathic medicines, it is possible to treat acidity successfully.

The medicines like Nux Vomica, Robinia, Iris, and Argentum Nitricum have become very famous for relieving the complaints.

In a few people, even the slightest amount of eating causes fullness and a distended abdomen in a bloated stomach. Lycopodium is very useful for acidity with a much-bloated abdomen.

List of homeopathic medicines for acidity:

Conclusion:

The right selection of homeopathic medicine is only possible after going through a detailed case. I suggest taking proper consultation and taking appropriate treatment. Seek professional homeopathic doctors near you to achieve the best homeopathic remedy for acidity. It may seem more costly initially than OTC (over-the-counter) medicines, but ultimately, the overall cost is much less. Avoid alcohol and smoking as much as you can. Better keep it to occasions and also keep it in limited quantities to improve your quality of life.
