Stomach Bloating And Acidity - Tips To Rid Yourself Of It - Dr Vivek Baliga Presentation For Patients

  1. 1. Get Rid Of Acidity With These Tips Patient Presentation Dr B Vivek Baliga Physician Baliga Diagnostics, Bangalore
  2. 2. Introduction ● Stomach acidity is a common condition. There are a number of reasons why it may occur. ● However, it appears that poor lifestyle and bad dietary choices are the most common causes. ● In the medical world, stomach acidity is called acid-peptic disease. ● When the acid comes up into the food pipe from the stomach, it is called gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD.
  3. 3. Symptoms ● Burping or belching ● Constant nausea ● Feeling of fullness in the stomach. ● Loss of appetite. ● Bad breath ● Bitter taste in the mouth Stomach acidity can become a chronic problem. For some, it may even affect their quality of life.
  4. 4. The Good News Is That There Are Simple Ways To Get Rid Of Acidity.
  5. 5. Cut Down Your Meal Portion Size ● When you overeat, you stretch the stomach wall. This leads to excessive acid production. ● If you wish to get rid of stomach acidity, then it is best to cut down on how much you eat. ● Instead of having 3 large meals a day, try and have smaller, more frequent meal portions. If you cannot find the time to eat frequently, then you could reduce your main meal portions sizes.
  6. 6. Aim To Be Around 75- 80% Full After A Meal. Do Not Overeat!
  7. 7. Cut Down Spicy Foods ● A nice spicy curry can certainly make us feel better and quite satisfied. :-) ● However, spice in foods can irritate the lining of the stomach. This can increase acid release and worsen acidity symptoms. ● Cutting down spice seems to help most people, so try and reduce it as much as possible.
  8. 8. Stop Smoking ● Smoking worsens acid peptic disease. ● Chewing tobacco also has the same kind of effects. ● If you are a smoker, then whatever medicines you take will be useless for acidity unless you stop smoking.
  9. 9. Lose Weight Through Exercise ● Excess body weight is strongly linked to acidity problems. ● Obesity can often lead to excessive burping and belching with indigestion issues. ● Starting an exercise program can help improve your digestion and at the same time can help you lose weight. ● Exercises can include brisk walking, jogging, swimming, cycling etc. ● It does not matter what you do – just make sure you combine it with a low calorie, balanced diet.
  10. 10. Just losing 2 to 3 kilograms can make a big difference and can help you get rid of acidity.
  11. 11. Avoid Sleeping Immediately After Meals ● If you have a meal and then retire to bed within a short time, you increase the chances of acidity causing problems. ● This is because the stomach gets stretched when full, and this can loosen the sphincter at the bottom of the food pipe. ● This causes acid to trickle into the food pipe, causing heartburn. Wait at least 2.5 to 3 hours after a meal before you go to sleep.
  12. 12. But I had a late dinner doc!!....... Then sleep like this for a couple of hours, and then sleep your usual way. PS: Forgive the rough drawing….!!! Propped Up These are pillows! Gravity Is Your Enemy.
  13. 13. Avoid Chocolate And Alcohol ● Chocolate and alcohol have the property of increasing the quantity of acid being released into the stomach. ● They also relax the valve that is present at the lower end of the food pipe. ● This leads to acid reflux. If you are troubled by acidity all the time, it is important that you give up your alcohol and stop indulging in chocolate.
  14. 14. Avoid Wearing Tight Clothing ● Tight clothing that fits around the belly can place pressure on the stomach and other organs. ● This can worsen acidity related symptoms. ● Wear loose fitting clothes at night when you sleep.
  15. 15. Getting rid of acidity related problems should not be hard. Just take the right steps and you could avoid antacids for years to come!
