welcome to healthcaremagic
Here are some tips for you acid problem if you follow it will be most minimize
a.Instead of eating three large meals in a day, it is advisable to consume smaller meals more frequently. When you lower the amount of food, it results in exerting less work load on the stomach, which in turn results in the stomach secreting less acid for digestion.
b. High-fat foods, especially those from fast food outlets, should be avoided. High-fat foods have a tendency of remaining longer in the stomach, which causes the stomach to secrete excessive acid to digest them.
c. Most importantly, avoid overeating. Overeating any food will cause the stomach to secrete excessive acid.
d. An upright position should be maintained while eating as well as at least 45 minutes after a meal.
When lying down, it is advisable to elevate the head of the bed by 6-8 inches.
e. It is a misconception that beverages flow quickly through the stomach, without the acid secretion being affected. Many types of beverages, like pop, wine and beer do stimulate the secretion of acid in the stomach, with beer being the worst. The acid can be doubled in your stomach inside an hour of consuming beer.
