A sedentary lifestyle along with untimely meals and consumption of unhealthy foods can lead to numerous digestive issues including acidity. But instead of opting for a medicine, one can make certain lifestyle tweaks that can work wonders, suggested fitness coach Nidhi Gupta.
“Acidity or acid reflux is a very common condition affecting many, some on a day-to-day basis. Young people are complaining of acidity more. Due to a sedentary lifestyle, high consumption of unhealthy foods, there has been a significant rise in the number of people suffering from acidity. This condition is identified by heartburn felt around the lower chest area or the sourness caused by the stomach acid flowing back up into the food pipe,” she said in an Instagram post.
