Indigestion Soothing Home Remedy

Here is a very simple home remedy to help alleviate acid indigestion. I am going to give you some general instructions, but ultimately, you will be able to create a formula that works the best for you from these three ingredients.

Water + Lemon + Baking Soda

Into a cup of warm water squeeze the juice of about 1/2 a lemon or lime. Then add about 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. This will cause the water to fizz up. Drink it down.

Please do not be afraid of the lemon or lime. Always I hear some say, “Oh, as much as I like the taste of lemon/lime, I am afraid to take it because it is acidic and I already have too much acid in my stomach.”

NOTE: The reaction of lemon/lime in your body is  alkaline. While lemons might be acidic outside of your body, their effect inside of your body is alkaline.

The reason I say “about” 1/2 lemon and “about” 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda is to compensate for the size  and the juiciness of the lemon. You need to find out what feels the best for you. Taste the lemon juice. Then add enough baking soda to foam up the water without loosing the lemon taste. Drink it and see what your stomach has to say about it. Too little lemon or too much baking soda? Adjust.

On another note: If you are looking for an easy, complete yoga class video, I now have my RELAXING HATHA YOGA with Norman Popovsky VIDEO available for download.
