Acidity, also known as acid reflux or gastroesopageal reflux disease (GERD), is a condition in which the stomach acid flows back up (into the esophagus), leading to burning in the chest or throat. Some common causes of acidity include:

1) Unhealthy or irregular dietary habits: High oily or spicy or acidic foods can trigger acidity. Also, eating large meals or eating right before bedtime can increase the chances of acidity.
2) Stress and anxiety: Constant stress and anxiety can lead to an increase in the stomach acid, leading to acidity.
3) Obesity: Being overweight can put pressure on the stomach and increase the risk of acidity.
4) Smoking: Smoking can weaken the lower esophageal sphincter leading to acid reflux and acidity.
5) Hiatal Hernia: A condition in which the upper part of the stomach protrudes into the chest cavity through the diaphragm. This can cause acid reflux and acidity.
6) Pregnancy: Hormonal changes during pregnancy can relax the lower  esophageal sphincter leading to acid reflux and acidity.
7) Medications: Certain medications such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, aspirin and some blood pressure medications can cause acidity.
Chronic acidity can lead to more serious health problems such as ulcers, esophageal cancer, and Barrett’s esophagus.
Homeopathy offers a holistic approach to treating acidity, taking into account the patient’s distinctive symptoms along with emotional symptoms and overall temperament.
