Indigestion? Lemon to the Rescue


The wonders of the universe, nature provides us with the food we need to nurture and heal our bodies. People of all ages have been effected with a burning sensation in their chest, the indicator of heart burn, acid reflex. It's extremely common. I have suffered from heart burn and acid reflux since I was a little girl. The discomfort for me was enormous until I discovered the power to finding relief and comfort was located in my refrigerator.  My great home remedy for combatting heartburn and acid reflux discomfort is lemon. Heartburn is caused by stomach acids rising into the esophagus. When we take in this highly beneficial food it becomes alkaline, the alkalizing effects inside the human body relieves the discomfort associated with acid reflux.

The nutritional benefits, lemon is an excellent source of vitamin C, B6, potassium, folic acid, flavonoids and the outstanding  phytochemical limonene.  If you're looking for a natural remedy to rid yourself of the discomfort, my home remedy is a good way of getting over heartburn and acid reflux.

Cut your lemon in quarters or halves, you decide. I use a half lemon in a 10oz glass of water to relieve heartburn. You should experience relief if one glass of lemon water is not enough, continue to drink more lemon water and suck on a lemon. You will experience relief from the symptoms as you alkaline your body.
