‘Acidity’ is a simple term that nevertheless causes major distress in practical life. While the literal meaning is an accumulation of acid (in the body), generally the condition comprises of heartburn, acid reflux, burning sensation in the upper chest, nausea and vomiting, and variations of these symptoms. It is common to develop nausea and vomiting due to acidity. Acidity is not a diagnosis but a symptom and may be due to a variety of causes ranging form pathological to merely functional. It is wise to investigate chronic cases of acidity because an internal disease may be at play in the digestive tract. Ignoring symptoms and hoping they will go away on their own is never advised.

Acidity develops due to regurgitation of stomach contents into the food pipe. It may also occur due to excess acid secretion in the stomach. Major causative factor is diet. A highly acidic diet contributes significantly to acidity and complications arising henceforth. Meals rich in fats, oils and spices irritate the stomach lining and cause excess acid secretion. So does a heavy alcohol intake. A diet that lacks in fibers, fruits and water can add on to acidity. Also, one can blame acid reflux on a sedentary lifestyle. Little to no physical activity majorly interferes with smooth digestion and causes a variety of dyspeptic symptoms, notably acid reflux. A heavy dinner followed by immediate rest and no exercise can be an exacerbating factor in persons frequently suffering from acid reflux. Of course, one must not ignore the role of stress. Stress and anxiety increase the chances of developing heartburn and acidity manifold.

There are also some disease conditions manifesting as acid reflux, nausea and vomiting. The most important and common is gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD. In this pathology of the digestive tract, the muscle band that guards the lower end of the food pipe fails to contract adequately. This means that it remains in a partially or fully relaxed state. Food contents and acid from the stomach can therefore easily regurgitate into the food pipe. This is accompanied by burning sensation in the upper chest and throat and may lead to nausea and vomiting also. Chronic acid reflux can lead to a variety of complications. Changes may occur in the lining of the food pipe. The problem is diagnosed by conducting upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. Esophageal pressure studies may also be done to evaluate the functioning of the lower esophageal sphincter.

If you are wondering how to stop vomiting due to acidity, remember that certain household commodities can serve as well as medicines. One may not always have access to medication and home remedies can come in handy. First of all, ensure that your water intake is optimal. A minimum of two to three liters of water a day is essential. Two glasses of water in the morning is a good way to start your day. Boiling tulsi (or holy basil) leaves in a little water and then drinking it once or twice a day helps to counter acidity. This can also be taken empty stomach in the morning to enhance the effects. Of course, tulsi has a variety of other benefits also. Milk is one of the easiest products that can help fight acidity. A glass of milk a day not only balances excess acid secretion, but also provides essential nutrients and develops immunity. Milk products such as curd, paneer, etc. are also helpful in this regard. Jaggery is yet another effective antacid. A small piece of jaggery taken after meals is helpful in preventing acidity and vomiting. Taking mint juice, or boiling mint leaves in a little water is also beneficial.

Similarly, one can make ginger tea to counter acidity and dyspeptic symptoms. A list of fruits and nuts are also beneficial in preventing the development of acidity. Cucumbers, bananas, watermelon, lemon juice, almonds are all easy to obtain household foods that tackle acidity effectively. Aloe vera juice can also be tried for the same. Coconut water is not only an excellent rejuvenator full of electrolytes, it diminishes acid secretion also. Different products work for different people and experimenting with home remedies can give an idea as to what is most suitable for you.
