What is Acidity?

Acidity is characterized by the increased secretion of acid in the stomach that causes pain and a burning sensation in the chest. Acidity is increased after meals or at night. The backflow of acids from the stomach to the esophagus also causes a sour mouth taste. Acidity is also called acid reflux and gastroesophageal reflux disease(GERD).

What are the causes of acidity?

Stomach acidity is caused by;

  • Eating spicy foods and caffeine-containing drinks

  • Indigestion 

  • Smoking and stress

  • Pregnancy

  • Certain medications like NSAIDs

  • Heartburn and chest pain

  • Belching and abdominal bloating

Symptoms of Acidity

The most common heartburn symptoms are:

  • A burning sensation felt in the chest that can be located right behind the breastbone. This occurs after consuming food and could go on for some minutes to a few hours.
  • Pain in the chest. Particularly when the person bends over or lies down.
  • A burning sensation in the throat.
  • A fluid that tastes warm, bitter, acidic and/or salty comes up at the back of the throat.
  • Swallowing becomes difficult.
  • A sensation of food being stuck in the chest.

Causes of Acidity

The primary cause for acidity is the stomach acid’s backflow into the tubing through which the food that we eat travels from the mouth to the stomach.

In normal circumstances, a muscle band at the end of that tube, right above the stomach, relaxes when the person swallows. This is so that the food and fluids that were consumed can easily enter the stomach. Once the food is completely transported into the stomach, this muscle contracts again and closes the opening.

However, in the case of acidity, this muscle grows weak and the stomach acid flows back up the esophagus. This is the process behind the heartburn. The backflow of acid could become even worse when the person decides to bend over or lay down.

Risk Factors of Acidity

The following foods and drinks, among others, can potentially cause acidity in certain persons:

  • Foods that are spicy
  • Onions
  • Citrus foods
  • Products that have tomato as an ingredient
  • Foods with a lot of fats
  • Peppermint
  • Chocolate
  • Carbonated or caffeinated drinks

Other risk factors that could increase vulnerability to heartburns include being obese or pregnant

Preventive Measures of Acidity

One can prevent heartburns, or at least manage them, by slightly changing their daily routines and lifestyle. These measures could be tried:

  • The individual should avoid going to bed with a full belly. This means that they should eat meals about three to four hours prior to sleeping. Having an empty stomach at sleeping time reduces the chance of acidity.
  • Avoid overeating by lessening the quantity of food consumed per meal. Instead, the total food consumption for the day should be divided into five smaller meals.
  • Eat slowly. Remember to put your fork down between bites. Eating slowly is recommended as well.
  • Clothes that are too tight are also not recommended.
  • The person should identify which types of foods and drinks cause the heartburn and should then avoid them as much as possible.
  • Weight loss is also necessary if the person is overweight. They should start adhering to a weight loss plan.
  • Give up smoking; nicotine is known to weaken the muscle band which restricts the backflow of the food from the stomach.
