Ancient Health Tips to Manage your Acid Reflux, Bloating, Heart Burn and Indigestion

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian, holistic medical practice. Ayurveda is all about creating a balance through the use of natural herbs, food and exercise

Lifestyle changes and herbal treatments consisting of one or several herbs in combination are the hallmark of Ayurvedic treatment for acid reflux.
Try to avoid high-stress situations and practice stress management techniques.

Enjoy natural beauty. The appreciation of natural beauty helps to balance sadhaka pitta and reduces stress.

Favor cooling foods and drinks such as fresh coconut juice
Use an electric drill to make a hole in the coconut and use a straw to sip on the coconut juice. Use the fresh coconut meat in your vegetables, rice dishes, or chutneys. If you feel discomfort during the day, take a few sips of cool milk on an empty stomach.

Fresh aloe vera gel straight from the leaf is balancing.
Avoid the store bought juice as citric acid is used as a preservative and it is too acidic if you suffer from acid indigestion.

Pomegranate juice and pomegranate chutney also help balance the acid in the stomach. It tastes sour but it is actually both astringent and bitter, which help balance pitta.

Baked fennel seeds are also recommended to help settle the stomach and balance digestion. Eat 1/4 teaspoon of baked fennel seeds 3 times a day between meals.

Organic Rose Water or mint lassi is good to drink with a meal as they are cooling and sweet to taste. Favor astringent, bitter, and sweet tastes in your diet. Split mung dahl, green leafy vegetables, grains, watermelon, honeydew melon, lettuce, mangos, and spices such as fenugreek seeds, coriander, cardamom, and mint should be included in your daily diet.

Cumin Seed Powder - 1 tsp.,
Coriander Seed Powder -  1/2 tsp., 
SUGAR  - 1/2 tsp., 
Cardamom (Ground) - 1/8 tsp., 
WATER  - 1/2 Cup 
Take this mixture 2 to 3 TIMES a day. – Makes a BIG Difference.

Moong Dal (Moong Soup) and all forms such as Whole Moong, Split Moong, and Yellow Moong should be consumed daily.

You may prepare Breads, Chapatti and Roti using SPELT FLOUR instead of Wheat.

In Dairy Category – Avoid all types of Cheese, Especially Old and aged variety. On the other hand, you may enjoy Fresh Cheese such as Cottage Cheese, Fresh Mozzarella and Indian Paneer. No Yogurt.  

Additional Home Remedies:

Taking lemon juice in warm water three times a day improves digestion.

Chewing a piece of raw ginger (about one gram) with rock salt or common salt is good. This should be taken about five minutes before each meal.

Drinking buttermilk is very beneficial to improve the digestion. It should be taken at the end of a meal. It is better to mix some roasted cumin seeds and a little rock salt or common salt in this.
Drinking plain soda water gives immediate relief with symptoms like wind, distended stomach and acidity.
Eating about three grams of anise seeds improves digestion.
