THE DRAWBACK OF ANT-ACID MEDICINE
At any time, but mostly after eating and drinking all the ‘Wrong Stuff’ you may have a ‘burning sensation’ in your chest, so you immediately rush to the medicine cabinet and gulp down some Ant-Acid medicine. This gives you temporary relief and you smile and say “Ah! Wonderful Stuff this “XYZ” !!
But hang on a minute, let us see what actually happens , , , , , This will wipe the smile off your face!!! , , , , ,This medicine is actually a “Bomb” packed full of Alkaline which then proceeds to completely neutralize all your stomach acid that is actually causing you the pain. But listen, my friend , , , , this acid is vitally needed to break up the PROTEIN in the food you have just eaten so that it can be easily absorbed into your body to accomplish that for which our Creator intended. So you have now actually destroyed this very valuable process. But even worse , , , , Acid kills harmful Bacteria that you swallowed with your food a moment ago. But where is this valuable Acid? You have just killed it stone dead with your Ant-Acid medicine , , ,WOW !!!
Admittedly, too much acid is harmful, but this is automatically controlled by your body with the aid of the Liver that manufactures the greenish alkaline fluid ‘Bile’ . This is then stored ready for immediate use in the Gall Bladder when too much acid is ingested. Bile is also needed to break down the fat in the stomach. But the ADDITIONAL Alkaline (in the form of your ‘Medicine’) is a VERY harmful combination indeed, as now every atom of your valuable ‘Bacterial – Warrior – Acid ‘ is killed stone dead, and you end up far worse off in the long term. This is because subsequent illnesses can be caused by the ever so lively Bacteria you have now given full permission to invade your healthy body! Of course, you never realize that your illness a few months into the future was initially caused months back when you took that Ant-Acid medicine!!!, , , , WOW !!!
But if you take away a child’s toy, you must give it a replacement or it will scream the house down! In the case of the Ant-Acid Medicine, you must also give your ‘tummy-child’ a replacement “toy”. Here are a few suggestions:-
(a) APPLE CIDER VINEGAR which is a NATURAL remedy dating back 3,500 years.
(b) GRATED APPLE which is left to oxidize in the surrounding air until it goes brown.
(c) .GINGER is a splendid stomach settler.
(d) ALOE VERA. This quickly soothes stomach irritation. As a bonus, it also speeds up the rate of healing of infectious wounds, burns and ulcers etc.
(e) FENUGREEK. This is also a FANTASTIC stomach healer, especially after a nasty bout of vomiting when you can’t “keep anything down”!!
(f): CARAWAY SEEDS (soaked in hot water and allowed to stand until cool) is a great stomach soother. It is ideal for colic in children.. It expels wind from the bowels too. Rather drink it hot for colds and ‘flu. The cherry on the top, of course, is that Caraway is pleasant to drink!

THE CORRECT ALKALINE TO ACID RATIO
Talking of Acid and Alkaline, the ideal ratio of Acid to Alkaline in the body SHOULD be 20% ACID to 80% ALKALINE. This is seldom achieved by most people however, unless purposely strived for. At this ratio, the body will look after itself health-wise, repairing any damages and sustaining perfect health. This is because, at this Ratio, no Germ or Virus can possibly get a foothold.
Alkaline foods include Vegetables, Fruits, Herbs, Seeds, Nuts, and some Vegetable Oils. Note carefully, however, that some acidy tasting items ARE ACTUALLY FORMED INTO ALKALINE by the body itself, , , (Gosh! Our Creator thinks of everything, not so??!!)
On the other hand, ACID forming foods include Meat, Sweets, Chocolate, Bread, Cakes, Fried Foods and some Dairy Products. As regards the latter Dairy Products, why not rather eat your nourishing foods FRESH ,,,,,,, without getting them “second hand ”through a cow “!!!.
Incidentally, a little known fact about TOMATOES is that they are ‘Two-Faced’, , , because they can be either Acid OR Alkaline simply depending upon when and how they are eaten!! Namely, if eaten at mealtimes with Carbohydrates (Potatoes etc.) they are ACID, but if eaten by themselves in between meals (or without Carbohydrates with meals), they are ALKALINE (There is term for this, but I can’t find it in the dictionary, , ,, but it is similar to someone being ‘Ambidextrous’ namely, being able to write with both hands. . Also, unless only very gently heated, tomatoes loose all their goodness. So rather eat them raw, whenever possible.
1: Stop taking Ant-acid Medicines, , , rather try the alternative suggestions.
2: Aim for the correct balance of 20% ACID to 80% ALKALINE for perfect health.
