What is Acidity?

Acidity is the burning pain in the upper abdominal and chest area. This condition is medically known as heartburn. The stomach secretes an acid that is essential in the digestive process. This acid aids in breaking down the food during digestion. When there is excess production of this acid by the gastric glands of the stomach, it results in the condition termed as acidity. Even though many people are able to manage acidity with changes in their lifestyle, it does not help everybody. Homeopathic remedies have been of tremendous help for these people in order to treat acidity
