What is acidity?

Acidity occurs in the stomach when there is excessive secretion of acids in the gastric glands which can be triggered due to spicy foods, or a long gap between meals.

Three foods to beat acidity

Banana: Start your day with a banana. That “will solve half your acidity concerns”

Basil seeds: Drink one glass of water with 1-2 tsp of sabja seeds soaked in it. Remember, basil seeds are cooling in nature. “Avoid it during periods or if you have cold/cough,” said Kapoor.

Coconut water: Drink this miraculous alkaline drink at 11 am, and see how your acidity runs away, she expressed.

Here are some lifestyle tweaks to avoid acidity

*Eat small and frequent meals
*Avoid excessive protein
*Eat 2-3 non-vegetarian meals only every week and not more
*Don’t avoid grains in your meals
*Walk 100 steps after meals
*Sit in Vajrasana
*Think positive, happy thoughts
