Acidity is a very common problem today and can cause a significant amount of discomfort to the sufferer. However, despite its prominence, very few people are aware of the details of the condition and how it develops. One of the important functions of the stomach is to produce acids to help digest the food that has been consumed. Whenever food is consumed, cells within the lining of the stomach will pump some of these acids to help break down the food. However, when relatively larger quantities of acid are produced, the individual will suffer from acidity and experience a burning sensation just above the stomach. Some people may also sense a sour taste in the back of the mouth while other symptoms include belching, nausea, a bitter taste in the mouth, loss of appetite, vomiting, coughing or even an inflammation of the chest to name a few. The condition is known to be greatly aggravated mainly by lifestyle habits such as not having your meals on time, drinking too much alcohol, excessive consumption of foods that are rich in fats, pregnancy, obesity, aging, a faulty digestive system as well being on an empty stomach for a long period of time.

Given the fact that so many people suffer from the condition in various parts of the world, a number of home remedies have popped up that have been known to have quite a god effect on a number of people. You could try a few yourself to see what helps your situation best. A regular consumption of fresh mint juice is known to help effectively bring an end to a bout of acidity. You could also boil cumin seeds in a glass of water and let it cool down before you drink it along with your meals. Beverages like tea, coffee or any kind of aerated drinks should be strictly avoided, as they only serve to make the problem worse. Drinking a couple of glasses of water early in the morning will help keep you healthy and free of any acidity problems throughout the course of the day. You could also try squeezing the juice out of one orange and mix it with roasted cumin seeds before you add some rock salt to help the taste. Drinking this concoction whenever you suffer from severe acidity will help relieve you of the pain almost instantly. Having two teaspoonfuls of Indian Gooseberry powder is also known to be extremely effective.
