Homeopathic Remedies for Acidity and Heartburn!

Updated on February 29, 2016

A healthy body promises a healthy living, but most of the times people fail to follow the essentials of good and healthy living and fall prey to different health problems. Of the many diseases that are quite common today, perhaps the one that is widely prevalent is acidity. Acidity refers to excessive secretion of acid in the stomach, which leads to burning pain in the chest area, vomiting, nausea, belching and loss of appetite. Though the causes of acidity are many, a few of the common causes are excessive consumption of spicy food, smoking, alcohol, frequent use of painkillers, excessive consumption of tea or coffee, fasting, stress, etc.

Acidity, also known as heartburn, can lead to severe problems if neglected. It can cause Peptic ulcer and Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). Peptic ulcer is of two types: Gastric ulcer and Duodenal ulcer. When the protective mucus coating on the walls of the stomach is eroded due to excessive acid production, it damages the lining leading to indigestion and causing an ulcer.

Unlike stomach ulcer, duodenal ulcer is caused due to the raw spots on the lining of the duodenum caused by excessive acid secretion. Peptic ulcer if untreated can lead to pyloric stenosis, which is when ulcer blocks exit from stomach; loss of appetite; loss of weight; excessive bleeding and peritonitis, which is infection of abdominal cavity.

GERD or acid reflux disease is caused due to the weakening of the valve in the stomach that frequently fails to stop the food and acid to flow back into the esophagus or food pipe causing heartburn. This can lead to serious problems like bleeding, pyloric stenosis and ulcer.

Homeopathic treatment for acidity and Heartburn

Homeopathy offers a safe and effective treatment for acidity and Heartburn.


Robinia is an excellent remedy for hyperchlorhydria, a state when there is higher than normal amount of hydrochloric acid in the gastric juice. The acidity is accompanied by severe burning in the stomach, frontal headache, intensely sour belching culminating into acrid and greenish vomiting, abdominal pain, flatulence and constipation. The stools and perspiration smell sour.

Argentum Nitricum

Homeopathic remedy Argentum Nitricum is indiacted when there are symptoms of Neuroses. The indications for the remedy are lack of coordination of movements, loss of control, burning and pain in the stomach that increase and decrease gradually, strong liking for sweets, excessive Mucopurulent discharge in the inflamed and ulcerated mucous membranes, flatulence and severe belching. The patient suffers splinter like pain in the stomach and upper abdominal affections due to undue mental exertion. Argentum Nitricum is indeed an excellent remedy for these indications.

Carbo Vegetabilis

Carbo Veg provides a great remedy for indigestion, belching, bloating and flatulence. The symptoms show sudden toxicity due to consumption of meat, fish, coffee or alcohol and weak digestion. The patient shows laziness, sluggishness and tendency to chronicity of the disease.

Other indicated Homeopathic remedies are Arsenic Alb, Merc Sol, Nux Vomica etc.

A good Homeopathic Physician while asking a few pointed questions will decide the prescription for the case quickly.
