What is Acidity or Acid Reflux?
Acid reflux is a common condition that features a burning pain, known as heartburn, in the lower chest area. It happens when stomach acid flows back up into the food pipe.
How does Acidity or Acid Reflux Occur?
The food we eat passes down the oesophagus into the stomach. The gastric glands in the stomach create acid which is necessary to digest the food and kill any germs. Acidity occurs when the gastric glands produce a large amount of acid, more than what is needed for the digestion process. This condition is characterized by a burning sensation just above the stomach, or right below the breastbone.

Frequently Asked Question (FAQ):
Is acid reflux a serious health issue?
Acid reflux that occurs once in a while isn't a cause for alarm. It can damage your esophagus or rarely lead to cancer if it happens frequently, disrupts your everyday routine, or is caused by GERD.
Why see an acid reflux specialist?
If you get symptoms frequently (mild cases every week) or it is more severe (two or more times a week), it is a good idea to visit an acid reflux specialist. Experiencing frequent or severe symptoms means that you may have a condition called gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
Heartburn or Acidity are the same?
Kaizen Specialists explain that acid reflux and heartburn are not the same things. Heartburn is a symptom, which is something you can sense and feel. Acid reflux is the underlying process that causes heartburn.
Does drinking water reduce acidity?
The pH of water is around 7 which is known to raise the pH of an acidic meal. The best way is to drink a glass of lukewarm water every day before hitting the sack and the first thing in the morning (on an empty stomach) as it helps to relieve acidity and prevent it. Avoid drinking water during or immediately after a meal, as it can contribute to improper digestion leading to acidity.
Is hot water good for acidity?
There is no doubt that drinking water has numerous health benefits for the stomach. It is known that warm water can not only help clear toxins from the body but also aid in digestion by breaking down food and improving the function of the digestive system. So if you suffer from digestion-related problems then drinking a cup of warm water regularly might provide some respite.
Is lemon good for acidity?
Lemon can help in neutralizing the acid in the stomach even though it is acidic. Drinking a glass of lemon water regularly can exert an alkalizing effect when it is digested.
