How to Relieve Acid Indigestion with Baking Soda and Vinegar

Relieve Acid Indigestion with Baking Soda and Vinegar

Got an upset stomach? Acid reflux acting up? Can't digest your last meal? No Alka-Seltzer in the house? Don't worry... I have a cure for you! And it's much cheaper than buying Alka-Seltzer!

Step 1

MAKE THE CONCOCTION -- Get a glass of water (not too much, like half a drinking glass full). Add about 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda and stir. Now add about 1 teaspoon of vinegar. It should bubble up. If it doesn't, add a bit more baking soda and a bit more vinegar.

Step 2

WAIT FOR THE BUBBLES TO GO DOWN -- When this concoction bubbles up wait until it settles down a bit before you drink it. If you drink it while it's still foaming up you can get a very bloated feeling. So let it settle for about 5 seconds.

Step 3

DRINK THE CONCOCTION -- After your mixture settles down drink it! If you don't feel better in about 15 minutes make another brew and drink it. You may want to make it a bit stronger, like 1 teaspoon baking soda and 1 tablespoon vinegar (I just vinegar in until it bubbles). If you don't want to use vinegar you can also use lemon juice.
