Few remedies for Acidity

1) When you feel/have more acidity, drink 1-2 litres of luke warm water + a pinch of salt at a time in the morning on empty stomach & try to vomit as much as possible. At the end you should feel sourness in the mouth which means you are throwing away the acid.

2) Drink half glass of cold milk, it will give cooling effect in stomach.

3) Plane ice cream (vanilla) gives cooling effect too & gives instant relief from acidity.

4) Drink tender coconut water.
