Acidity is a medical condition where the gastric glands of the stomach produce excess of gastric or hydrochloric acid. This acid is needed by the stomach to break down and digest food. The excess production of gastric acid in the stomach is caused by many external factors such as eating acidic food, irregular eating habits, smoking, consumption of alcohol, not drinking enough water, lack of physical exercise and stress.
Eating non-vegetarian, spicy and oily foods regularly may over a period of time lead to acidity. The stomach can withstand even the high acidic environment, but when the acid moves up the esophagus or the food pipe that is when the symptoms of acidity surface.
Patients even experience burning sensation in the chest to the point of scaring them into believing that they are having a heart attack. Other symptoms include sour taste in the mouth, sour belching, heaviness and burning sensation in the stomach and throat after eating a meal, indigestion, and constipation. Acidity can be managed and overcome by adjusting one’s food and lifestyle. Usually, it is treated with the aid of antacids containing magnesium, calcium or aluminum in their make.
Antacids have some side effects when consumed over a period of time. Positive Homeopathy offers a holistic treatment for acidity without any antacids. Homeopathic medicines work by repairing the constitutional issues in the body.

GERD can be a problem if it’s not treated because, over time, the reflux of stomach acid damages the tissue lining the esophagus, causing inflammation and pain. In adults, long-lasting, untreated GERD can lead to permanent damage of the esophagus and sometimes even cancer.

Frequently Asked Questions
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a condition in which the esophagus (food pipe) becomes irritated or inflamed by stomach contents, including acid, backing up from the stomach. This backing up is called reflux. The main symptom is heartburn, but other symptoms may occur.
Heartburn symptoms include a burning pain in the center of the chest, behind the breastbone. It often starts in the upper abdomen and spreads up into the neck. It usually starts about 30-60 minutes after eating and can last as long as 2 hours. Lying down or bending over can bring on heartburn or make it worse. It is sometimes referred to as acid indigestion. Not everyone with GERD has heartburn
