Answer: Dear to get relief from acidity you have to make some changes in your lifestyle that will help you get relief.Eat several small meals each day instead of three large ones. Eat slowly. Avoid fried, spicy, or rich foods, or any foods that seem to cause relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter and increase the risk of heartburn. Drink less while eating. Drinking large amounts while eating may increase the risk of acid reflux and heartburn. Don't lie down directly after eating. Keep the head of your bed higher than the foot of your bed. Or place pillows under your shoulders to help prevent stomach acids from rising into your chest. Ask your doctor about using over-the-counter medications such as Tums or Maalox, which are generally safe to use during pregnancy. You may find that liquid heartburn relievers are more effective in treating heartburn, because they coat the esophagus. Wear loose-fitting clothing. Tight-fitting clothes can increase the pressure on your stomach and abdomen. You can use antacids if they are prescribed by doctor ..also whenever you have acidity just drink milk or eat curd that will give you an instant relief ,ginger water will also do the magic so do try that also..
