Indigestion? Drink Your Fluids Differently
There is a saying in Chinese Medicine: 'chew your drink and eat your food.' If we 'chew' our drinks we will only take them in small amounts, allowing them to be thoroughly digested. Drinking vast amounts of fluid along with meals tends to flood the main stomach, and washes our food down. It also dilutes the digestive juices.
