What type of foods should I favour to stop heartburn?
If you suffer from heartburn, Ayurveda recommends that you favour heavy, sweet, bitter, astringent, cooling and dry foods. It also recommends that you reduce salty, sour and pungent foods. Maharishi Ayurveda Rose Petal Conserve is an excellent product to use in this condition. Drink a small amount of cool milk, but not with meals. In general, Pitta pacifying foods are good for reducing heartburn.
What environmental factors should I consider?
Ayurveda recommends that you avoid prolonged exposure to the sun and hot temperatures.
Avoid stressful situations and make sure you get enough leisure time.
Eating meals at varying times of the day is not ideal. Try to eat your main meal at midday.
