Quick Kitchen Remedy for Indigestion

Think you might overdo it this weekend and wake up with that dreaded burning sensation in your midsection?

Luckily, your veggie bin holds an easy fix for heartburn pain. It's the humble potato.

Potato power
Maoshing Ni, PhD, author of Secrets of Self-Healing, offers this recipe: Juice one large or two small white russet potatoes, discard the pulp, mix the juice with an equal amount of hot water, and drink on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. Why does it work? Because potatoes are an alkalizing food, meaning they neutralize acid in the stomach. Try these heartburn-free cooking tips.

Banish the burn
