Home-made Antacid

Heartburn after eating out??

A bad hangover from last night's party that has resulted in severe heartburn?

Had really spicy food?

We have all been through this...

Scrambling through the medicine cabinet for Tums, Gelusil or Gaviscon or whatever it maybe. #homeremedies

Well, next time go ahead try these simple home remedies.

  • Buttermilk - Buttermilk is nothing but yoghurt that has been blended with water, salt, cumin powder, asafoetida and black pepper. You can make variations to it by adding coriander leaves or mint leaves.

This is hailed as one of the best digestive drinks and as a cooling agent for the body. Instant hydration with the goodness of probiotics. According to Ayurveda buttermilk helps to balance kapha and vata. It is a staple in most Indian households after a heavy lunch to wash down all the spices and oil.

  • Fennel Seeds - If you are an Indian or have attended any Indian function or lunch gathering, you would have been served with fennel seeds coated with sugar at the end of your meal. Any idea why?

Fennel seeds possess anti-spasmodic and carminative effects that helps maintain proper digestive health. Their anti-inflammatory properties help soothe the muscles in the stomach that gives relief from gas and acid-reflux.

  • Cumin Seeds- Cumin seeds can be found in all households. It is indeed a miracle spice. From the immense benefits it provides to the skin, metabolism and the immune system cumin seeds also aid in digestion.
