Brief Answer:
further necessary information

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for contacting the Ayurveda section of [A]YUSH and after reviewing your case history I'm of the following opinion:

1. As hyperacidity is not a disease but a symptom of underlying pathology thus do let me know whether it is of sudden onset or chronic since people with longstanding kidney stones do have the problem of acidity.

2. As your treatment is to treat the underlying cause I do prepare myself the medicine for your above-said problem [i.e. which will take care of the symptom as well as of the underlying cause], do let me know if you want the medicine, till then:

A. Dietary Regimen:

Take: old brown rice,bitter gourd,white gourd melon,green vegetables,cold water, pipalli,harad,garlic,honey,amla,rice water gruel,barley water,milk,shatavari.

Avoid: newly harvested rice,chick pea flour,black gram,horse gram,potato,brinjal, saindhav namak, kanji,spicy food,tea/coffee,alcohol,junk food,day time sleeping, tomato,white sesame seed,curd,pain killers [NSAID's],

B. HOME REMEDIES [of your choice]

. Drink 4 spoons of aegle marmelos leaves juice for 14 days.
. try to suck a piece of clove for immediate relief.
. fresh mint juice
. banana,cucumber,water melon are natural antacids
. glass of warm water [early morning]
. coconut water [3-4 times a day]
. suck 10 gm jaggery everyday [after meals] if there is constant acidity.
. Mix
3 pinch dry ginger powder
3 pinch amla powder
3 pinch sugar and eat this mixture for 1 month


. Avoid forward bending or Immediately lying down after eating, instead go for head high position at night [since GERD causes regurgitation/choking]
. loose excess weight.
. maintain good posture.
. do not eat one large meal at one time, instead take smaller, more frequent meals during the day.

D. Please revert back for Treatment Aspect.

Brief Answer:
further information

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for reverting back.

1. Although acid reflux [called as GERD] can sometimes cause tightness in the chest, however, it is unlikely that it is the cause of palpitations, but as your heart reports were normal, check with thyroid function test, hemoglobin level.
2. Associated bloating [fullness of abdomen] can affect the diaphragm [which assists in breathing], which means that bloating can lead to shortness of breath.

3. Work, WORRY (Stress), Weather are the main cause of any digestion related issues [acidity in your case], thus:

i. Avoid chilies, fried & sour food.
ii. Stop using painkillers (paracetamol is safe)
iii. Avoid strong Tea, If necessary take with some food, not on empty stomach.
iv. Have regular meals, Avoid periods of starvation- take small snacks in between
v. Avoid late night duties, take regular sleep and adequate rest.
vi. Do not lie immediately after taking meals and make sure to raise your head end while sleeping.

4. General Instructions [regarding bloating]:
. Avoid oily foods, aerated drinks.
. Avoid smoking and Pan chewing.
. Take easily digestible foods.
PS. Wheat causes flatulence in many so Roti is preferred to chapati.
. Avoid overeating, do not sleep immediately after food. Have a small walk after each meal.
. Avoid tubers like potato, sweet potato.
. Avoid flatulent foods like harbara dal, chana dal, brinjal, curd, peas, beans.

5. To get cure completely from your associated symptoms we have to treat the root cause, i.e. your digestion [AGNI], for which I have self-prepared medicines which act from the cellular level and thereby makes one symptom-free, so please share your Address so that we can proceed further.
