Gastric problems have became very common these days. The reason is-changing patterns of food, fast foods, failure to take diet for long hours during office work etc. However, the best way to avoid gastric problems is to take meals at short intervals and to drink milk during night before sleeping. If severe problems such as gastritis occur, antacids may be taken.

Avoid acidic foods. Acidic foods are fried foods, fatty foods, junk foods, alcohol and excess of tea/coffee. Eat more basic foods. Basic foods are-Lot of fresh fruits and vegetables, simple rotis, boiled vegetables and boiled rice. Also drink lots of water daily.

I too have the same problems. Some effective solutions that I can find are-

Avoid junk food.

Do not drink a lot of tea or coffee and if you drink a lot, at least have fresh one each time and drink it hot. Do not keep it for long.

Do not eat kept over food especially dals of the previous day.

Drink a lot of water. It is beneficial anyways.

Do not drink milk empty stomach or better drink it at night if you drink it at all.

Dear Hafeez, you did not mention whole problem. There are two reasons of acidity first you feel acidity when you are empty stomach and second is after taking food. The reason of both are also different. If we talk about acidity with empty stomach. It is due to acid increases when our stomach is empty. So it is really compulsary to eat something when you feel hunger. If you will not take something to eat for a long you will feel acidity.
Second thing is to avoid all acidic things like tea, wine, oily things. They increases acidity. Avoid to take warm milk. replace it with luke warm milk. Take a gap of minimum 2-3 hrs between dinner and sleep. Walk 100 steps after taking food will help you to reduce the problem. If the problem still presists I will suggest you take B.C. 25 (easily available on any homeopathic shop.) three times a day. It will definitely work to reduce your problem but the complete solution is to adjust your life style and eating habits.

Intestinal gas, more commonly called stomach gas. It cause discomfort and gas pain. The gastric problems are natural and sometimes it might become serious and affect our daily activities. There are some methods in Ayurveda to avoid this. One of which is to avoid food like dhal in nights, and drink water regularly in a day.
The eating of food in unusual time will lead to gastric problems, so try to avoid that also. The vegetarian food is good for reducing this problem. Especially leaf contained foods are very much helpful for reducing this problem.

Best remedy to this problem is develop a habit of eating many times instead of taking lots of food in two or three times a day. Keep eating some foods in small amount all day.
And be regular with your exercise. And if you can't implement my first advice of eating less but all the day, then eat regularly in right times. By right time, I mean eat exactly on the time everyday. Don't delay on eating times.

Gastric irritation(gastritis) is due to over secretion of hydro chloric acid by parietal cells of gastric cells which damage gastric mucosa and cause irritation/inflamation.It generally occurs as a response to hunger.But in uncontrolled release of acid there is a need of immediate attention.Avoid spicy and masala foods.In some people even milk causes gastritis.If the hydrogen ions are blocked the production of acid will be minimised.So use proton pump inhibitors like Zientac/Rantac.Seek doctors advice.
