Are you searching for some ayurvedic solutions for acidity as recommended by Baba Ramdev and Patanjali Ayurveda?
Then you are at the right place but you first need to know about acidity and its causes.
What Is Acidity or hyperacidity according to medical science?
Acidity which is also known as acid reflux is the condition when acids from the stomach rise up the esophagus (commonly known as food pipe). This gives rise to an uncomfortable sensation in the esophagus which is characterized by an uneasy feeling in the gut causing burning sensation and pain. Sometimes even the regurgitating of acid in the mouth is felt in the form of sour liquid. This condition is also commonly known as heartburn or amalpit in ayurveda, as described by baba ramdev.
If heartburn happens too often, i.e. more than twice a week, then you might be suffering from Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). In most cases, this is not a serious ailment, and can be cured by simple things such as modifying the diet and exercise.
As per ayurveda, this condition is described as a form of indigestion. Hence, while finding solution of acidity with ayurveda following health pack for acidity works miraculously well that is available online.

How Acidity Does Happens?
Here is the complete guide that helps in understanding the hyperacidity problem in the easiest way. The passage of food takes place through the alimentary canal, which starts from the mouth, continues to the esophagus, the stomach, the small and large intestines, and finally the rectum. The stomach naturally secretes hydrochloric acid to digest the food. At the entrance of the stomach, a valve known as lower esophageal valve controls the entry of food into it. Now, if this valve does not close properly for whatever reason, the acid from the stomach can rise up into the esophagus.
This acid could take the undigested food with it as it rises up, and form bubbles. This is what leads to acid reflux.
Worldwide statistics of hyperacidity?
Acid reflux is a very common phenomenon and can occur in almost everybody. Six out of every ten Americans suffer from GERD at least once every year, with about two of them suffering it at least every month. This is quite an alarming statistic.
Who all are at high risk of getting acidity?
- People who are overweight
- Pregnant women
- Alcoholics, and people who consume excessive caffeine
- People who do not have a regular meal timetable
- People whose diet consists of more spicy and oily foods
- People who are allergic to certain citrus fruits
How Do I Know I Have Acid Reflux?
To check whether you have acid reflux or not, you need to check on the following symptoms:-
- An uncomfortable feeling in the stomach or chest
- Regurgitation of bitter acid and food residues up the throat and in the mouth
- Excessive burping and belching
- Sensation of food particles being lodged in the esophagus
- Bloating of abdomen
- Sore throat
- Nausea and vomiting
When Does Acidity Become Severe?
Acid reflux or hyperacidity becomes severe if its episodes occur several times a week. You can feel this as burning sensation in chest region or sever pain in upper abdomen, especially after a full meal or empty stomach. As per ayurveda this problem occurs due to inability of closure of the lower esophageal valve.

All in all, by living healthy, you may never have to suffer from this condition at all.
Avoiding Food Triggers
Certain foods are known to increase the chances of having acid reflux problems. Though these foods differ from one person to another, which means one food might cause acid reflux in someone else but not in you, you need to know a list of these foods.
Observe if the following foods cause acid reflux in you, and if so, avoid them.
- Fatty foods or foods that have been fried in oil,
- Spicy foods
- Foods with a sharp taste such as peppermint
- Tea and other caffeinated beverages
Foods that you find difficult to digest might cause you acid reflux problems. One way to identify this is to observe if you have a taste of any food you have eaten still in your mouth or throat after more than 4 hours of eating. If the taste persists, or if you get burps and belches that carry the taste of the food, it means that the food is not digested yet. You must avoid these foods.
In addition, nicotine and alcohol are also known to cause acid reflux and GERD. If you have these problems persistently and they refuse to go despite food restrictions, then you might need to reduce these addictions.
Is Surgery Done for Hyperacidity?
Surgery is almost never used for acid reflux. This issue is usually treated by modifying the diet and lifestyle, and a complete cure is achieved with just these simple modifications if they are duly followed.
However, in a rare case, especially when acid reflux progresses to chronic GERD, then surgery might be necessitated. This is done only when all other methods fail, which include dietary and lifestyle changes, and using antacids and antibiotics.
When a surgery is done in the case of GERD, it is called fundoplication. In this case, a constriction is introduced in the food pipe at such a point where food will still continue to pass through it, but the acid won’t be able to rise up. In a way, a one-way flow of food is created. This prevents the backflow of stomach acids into the food pipe and does not allow it to reflux.
This is a delicate process and needs to be done by a qualified surgeon.
However, if you are able to identify the problem early and take the requisite care as regards diet and lifestyle, then this eventuality might not occur at all.
The best way to counter hyper acidity is to follow simple rules as laid in ayurveda and as mentioned by Yog Guru Swami Baba Ramdev ji Maharaj and his trust Patanjali Ayurveda
