Earlier this week, I wrote about an obstacle I faced with my project food as fuel. Serious consistent heartburn.
I did massive research for a few days. I needed to find a solution.

Here is a summary of what I learnt. 

- Acid reflux/heartburn is a condition in which acidic gastric fluid flows backward into the esophagus - usually creating a burning session you get around the chest.  

- I also uncovered that most people with heartburn actually have low stomach acid. This low acid is also responsible for low absorption of minerals... Particularly vitamin B12, and protein. 

- I found a lot of suggestions for treating the this condition. I considered all the options and identified the one that works for everything else I am trying to do.

Bone broth. 

Bone broth is a liquid of simmered cow or chicken bones and tissues. It is packed with a lot of nutrients that helps the gut heal in addition to providing minerals the body needs. 

I have been drinking bone broth for 2 days since my discovery and I have yet to experience an episode of acid reflux. 

Back to project food as fuel with a vengeance. 

Like Brandon said - can't stop me now.

    @keni That's amazing! I know about chicken broth and it's anti-inflammatory qualities, it also fights mucus, perfect for colds and such...

    @keni AWESOME! Isn't it great when you find a simple solution that works? I like how you developed an issue, did the research to find out what was causing it and solutions, and then put into action a solution that works. I'm happy to hear you are back on track.
