Acidity - Home Remedy

For Day 3, week 3 of BM #45, here is a tried and tested remedy for acidity/heartburn from my Mother-in-law's kitchen. My MIL is a strong proponent of Sonth and Ajwain. She comes from a family of Ayurvedic physicians and she herself is an expert at home remedies using simple spices/herbs easily available.

Ingredients - 

Sonth (Dry Ginger powder) 1 Tbsp
Jaggery Powder 1 Tbsp
Ghee 1 tsp

Acidity - Home Remedy

Method Of Preparation -

Mix the sonth, jaggery powder and ghee to make small marble sized tablets.

Store them in an air tight container.

Dosage - 
Chew the 1 tablet with a cup of warm water for relief from acidity, heartburn and indigestion.

Few more remedies for Indigestion,acidity or heartburn - 
1. A cup of cold milk poured directly into your throat gives instant relief from acidity or heartburn.

2. Boil 1 tsp of Coriander seeds in 1 cup of water and let it simmer and reduce to half a cup of water. Strain and drink it warm to relieve from acidity and is also a great body coolant.

3. Mix 1/2 tsp of Sonth powder, a pinch of salt and 1/8 tsp of ghee in about a tablespoon of steaming hot cooked rice. Eat this as a first morsel at lunch/dinner time. This is great for improving digestion. It can be given to kids, adults and lactating moms.

4. Roast Ajwain/vaamu until it gives out a nice aroma. Boil a tsp of the roasted ajwain in a cup of water for about 3-4 minutes. Strain and drink the a tablespoon of this water as frequently as possible for relief from indigestion and flatulence.

Preparation Time 5 min
Makes 8 tablets
