How did I hack my indigestion?

Indigestion is easy - on advice of an old farmer, after 30+ years of indigestion (and later years of acid reflux and hiatal hernia) this is what I did. I drank two glasses of water. That's it. I had to choke down the first one - which actually gagged me - but I did it and in the last 10 years I've only had a couple of instances of precursors to indigestion. I've not had actual indigestion in over 10 years. I know it sounds crazy, but there it is. After what must have been 5 or 6 thousand rolls of rolaids, two glasses of water did the trick. Two glasses, straight down. None of that pussy-footing around and "sipping" nonsense. According to the old man, "Whiskey's for sippin. Water's for drinkin.".

Warning! I DID gain a considerable amount of weight because I suddenly found myself able to eat anything I wanted - and what I wanted was EVERYthing. Eating paleo fixed that, but keep it in mind.

 I forgot to mention - don't throw your Rolaids away because when I used to have indigestion, I also often had hiccups and discovered that Rolaids would stop them. I haven't had hiccups for several years, now, so I suppose they may have been related to the indigestion because I don't recall ever not having rolaids with me when I got the hiccups. So, by my calculations, I haven't had hiccups since I stopped carrying rolaids which I haven't, since learning this trick.
