Could someone please help with the recipe for Antacid, I think it has Baking Soda, citric acid, and other things, sick of paying huge dollars for Enos. Thanks so much.

I had that once, health salts , as I remember. Icing sugar, was in the recipe, I had. It wasn't that nice, though. Buy enos and hide it in the cupboard, away from the kids.

If i have ever had to take anything like that, I put it into orange juice
The baking soda in orange juice is a great quick remedy for the beginning onset of cystitis.

Here's my recipe:

1 large glass
1 level tsp baking soda
1 level tsp citric acid

Half fill the glass with water. Add baking soda and stir until dissolved. Fill the glass to the top. Add citric acid and watch the reaction. Leave for a minute (or as long as you want) and drink.

It's similar to Eno, minus the flavouring, and does the same thing. Sometimes I add the juice of a half a lime or half a lemon and a little less citric acid to compensate: it is delicious.

Another inexpensive remedy is the fizzy lollies that you can buy in the bulk bins, also called sherbert lollies.

Keep in mind that an antacid(baking soda) is neutralized by an acid(citric acid) and will no longer neutralize the hydrochloric acid in your stomach. Avoid any home remedies that are acidic such as fruit or vinegar(acetic acid).

Have you tried a tsp or 2 of organic apple cider vinegar (unfermented and with the mother) in a glass of water?

Meg & I did this when we were dating. Unfortunately, our chseee turned out terrible kind of like a tough chewy log with clumps of salt hiding inside. Sounds like it would be worth trying again .
