Earlier we have not given much importance to our healthy diets, nutrition, and workouts. Digestive issues may happen because of the improper intake of foods.
We hopefully take medicines when something happens to our body, health, and all.
Digestive ailments, if left untreated, could also wreak havoc on our health. One of the most common digestive disorders is acidity. Acidity is defined as a digestive disease in which stomach acid or bile irritates the food pipelining. Acidity can cause heartburn – a burning sensation in the chest, stomach, and throat.
Acidity causes several health ailments. Some of the symptoms of acidity include:

- Loss of appetite
One can definitely overcome the problems of acidity if we pay attention to include these food items in your list:

3.Milk and yogurt
Milk is a perfect antidote for acidity. Cold or room temperature milk relieves acidity immediately. Sipping is the way instead of gulping. Milk is a natural antacid. Rich in calcium salts it neutralizes the acid. Yogurt is another way of controlling acidity.
Research has shown that taking a teaspoon of honey with warm water helps with acidity. Adding some lemon to it makes it a good alkalizing agent which neutralizes the acid in the stomach.
All fruits, including citrus fruits, leave an alkaline ash, neutralizing acids. They also add fiber which improves digestion and health. Taking two fresh fruits daily is a good strategy for controlling acidity. Fruits make for a good snack option, and taking snacks between meals is a good way to control acidity harming the stomach lining.
Also following a healthy lifestyle, eating at the right time, eating in a sitting position, chewing your food well, sitting upright for at least half an hour after a meal, etc will make an end to the digestion problems.
