Individuals with a Pitta imbalance are highly responsive to hyperacidity, peptic ulcers, and different types of inflammatory disorders. Things like stress, anger, impatience, extra-hot spicy foods, and environmental factors like extreme heat can aggravate Pitta.
Here are a few quick and simple things you can consider to fight the discomfort that acidity brings with it.
Avoid high-stress situations and practice stress-management techniques. For instance, every time you feel stressed, take a walk in the park. Observing nature and enjoying its beauty helps balance the Sadhaka Pitta, which reduces stress.
Favor cooling foods and drinks that are alkaline in nature. Coconut water is an excellent example of a Pitta-pacifying drink and it is great in reducing the burning sensation associated with acidity.
Pomegranate is both bitter and has astringent qualities. This helps it balance the Pitta Dosha and thereby regulating the production of acid in the stomach.
If you suffer from acid indigestion, fresh Aloe Vera juice is the best remedy to calm aggravated pitta. Take one tablespoon of fresh aloe juice in the morning on an empty stomach. Jiva offers fresh Aloe Vera juice that balances all the doshas and strengthens immunity.
Cooling drinks like organic rose water is good to drink with a meal. They are also the perfect replacement for your dessert when your sweet tooth cravings make an appearance.
In addition to eating healthy and trying the above tips, don't forget to check in with our Jiva doctor if you still suffer from frequent episodes of indigestion.
