1 heaped teaspoon psylluim hulls

1 heaped teaspoon powdered licorice root

1 heaped teaspoon slippery elm


Place these ingredients into a tall glass.

3/4 fill glass with water.   Stir until all combined.

Cover.   Leave overnight.    In the morning

add orange or just juice of choice or lemon.

Stir  and drink on an empty stomach.

I personally have found this works for me as I

have a reflux problem compounded by a shakitsky

ring (a birth defect) but this drink keeps me well.
