Mind Your Gut! 7 Home Remedies to Get Rid of That Acidity
Is your gut acting up? Do you feel the acid rising in your stomach, your heart burning, your throat hurting, and you feel like hell and nothing seems to work.
So what’s happening to you?
At the gateway to your stomach is a valve called lower esophageal sphincter or LES. LES shuts down as soon as food passes through. Now if your LES doesn’t shut down properly, or keeps opening and shutting, the acid in your stomach makes its way to the esophagus.
And this leads to a sharp chest pain, better known as a heartburn. And if it keeps happening, it’s called acid reflux.
So what can you do about it? We’ve got life hacks to help you mind your gut!
