    as somebody who for years suffered with indigestion,i could eat renni like they were sweet's even see the doc about it,then on a trip to sri lanka,got talking to a guy about my problem,and he said simple remedy,lemons:thumb:
    i could not eat an fb pie or pork pie or a tomato with the skin on,or drink cider,without suffering acid indigestion,so i started drinking lemon juice dilluted in water, every night before bed,and for years i have not suffered:thumb:
    it has other health benifits aswell,read below.

    Will give it a try, but equally, if you believe something works, then it proly will..

    Whilst your at it, perhaps you could try this cure too ? alternate to lemon juice therapy

    Is it washing your hands in, gets rid of whatever is in the blocks? cos I know they wreak havoc with the skin.

    I know Urea cream is excellent for the bottoms of your tootsies, also eczema/psoriasis - as is drinking your own pee (providing it's fresh and you haven't got a UTI of course) and stuff like that.

    Not so strange Brian

    According to nutritionist Patrick Holford much indigestion is caused by not having enough stomach acid to break down food effectively. especially in older people...

    As far as using urine for medical purposes, it's well known in Greece to reduce the pain of jellyfish stings!

    Proportions

    Hi Chris,
    My wife suffers terribly from acid indigestion. What proportions do you mix lemon juice with water? 50-50?
    Many thanks for your advice.

    Bob
