Maintain Regular Meal Times
Eating at regular intervals and avoiding skipping meals can help prevent acidity.
Chew Food Thoroughly
Chewing food thoroughly before swallowing can help improve digestion and prevent acidity.
Eating large meals can increase the production of stomach acid and trigger acidity. Eating smaller, more frequent meals can help reduce symptoms.
Certain foods and drinks, such as caffeine, alcohol, and spicy foods, can trigger acidity. Avoiding these triggers and eating a balanced diet can help reduce symptoms.
Practice Stress-Management Techniques
Stress can worsen symptoms of acidity. Incorporating stress-management techniques such as yoga, meditation, and deep breathing can help reduce symptoms.
Practice Good Posture
Maintaining a good posture while eating and sitting can help prevent acid reflux and reduce symptoms of acidity.
Avoid Lying Down After Eating
Lying down after eating can cause acid to flow back into the esophagus, triggering acidity. Waiting at least an hour after eating before lying down can help reduce symptoms.
By following these Ayurvedic lifestyle recommendations, you can improve your digestive health and reduce symptoms of acidity. However, if symptoms persist, it is recommended to seek the advice of a qualified healthcare professional.
