Some Natural Foods that help in curing Acidity.
In spite of its often sharp, sub-acid taste, the fresh grapefruit has an alkaline reaction after digestion. The citric acid of the fruit is  oxidized in the human system and hence the effect is to increase the alkalinity of the fluids of the body. Its juice is beneficial in the prevention and treatment of acidity and many diseases caused by too much acid in the system.

 The citric acid in limes has an alkaline reaction in the system. This acid together with the mineral salts present in the juice, helps the digestion by assisting in the absorption of fats and alcohol and by neutralizing excessive bile produced by the liver. The juice counteracts the effects of greasy food and reduces gastric acidity. It is, therefore, especially valuable in the treatment of peptic ulcers.
The mature dried coconut is valuable in the treatment of acidity. Its oil reduces the acid secretion of the stomach and gives much relief to the patient.
Honey is useful in maintaining the health of the stomach. It tones up the stomach diseases. It also decreases the over production of hydrochloric acid there by preventing symptoms like nausea, vomiting and heart burn . When purified faecal matter and undigested foods are present in the alimentary canal, honey acts as a laxative and emetic and clears the digestive canal of waste matter.
Sugarcane is valuable in burning micturation due to high acidity , gonorrhea, enlarged prostate  , cyctits and  nepthrits. For better results, it should be mixed with lime juice, ginger juice and coconut water.
