      •Drink coriander and cumin tea,
      •Mixing two teaspoonfuls of ghee in a glassful of milk and taking this once a day acts as a liner inside the gut and will heal all the destruction caused by the high flow of Pitta
      •Fruits that will help you in getting relief from acidity are cucumber, watermelon, papaya, and banana.
