I am so busy. So busy. I get myself into it I know. It is nobody else's fault. Though I am busy, I am happy. Great things are happening and I have hope in even greater things. I would never have imagined that I would be where I am today.
I have acid reflux right now because of a valve I was born with that does not shut and allows stomach acids to come up into my esophogus and mouth, burning as it goes. I have learned how to keep it at bay but sometimes in the midst of stress it is triggered. This time it was triggered by lemons in my liver cleanse recipe. I am learning about acid/alkaline foods to support my body with what it needs. I am also re-learning what herbs and natural remedies help. Ginger, cayenne, slippery elm, chamomile tea, food combining correctly, staying away from citrus and acid forming foods, eliminating chocolate, peppermint, sugar, meat, and fatty foods are some of the things that will help my acid reflux (actually I have GERD which is gastroesophogeal reflux disease).
I will keep learning how to control this and pass my learning on. My next step is to write a short paper on acid vs. alkaline and offer recipes that support the research. It will happen as I have time. Right now I don't but soon.....very soon. :)


  1. I have that too :( I was hoping there is something herbal that would help

  2. liquid chlorophyll is supposed to help with acid reflux too. It is good for digestion.
