Millions suffer indigestion which is aggravated by pure digestion and weak saliva juices.
Before mealtime, sip one teaspoon of Braggs Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar and hold in your mouth for a minute before swallowing.

Also good for heartburn/indigestion are kiwis. Kiwis contain wonderful enzymes that soothe the stomach. Eating several kiwi fruits following a heavy meal will help relieve a bloated feeling, heartburn or acid indigestion.

Any kind of lettuce is wonderful for treating acid indigestion and heartburn in place of antacids such as Tums.

In a blender, whip up half of a cut lettuce leaf with 8 to 10 oz, of ice cold water until you have a nice semi-thick green puree of near milkshake proportions. Drink slowly to relieve stomach upset. A little raw organic unfiltered unheated honey may be added for flavoring.

When the body triggers a headache, the urine is alkaline rather than the normal acid. The kidneys are disturbed by the emotions and it means the body is off-balance.
