quote:Originally posted by Andrew K Fletcher If you honestly believe that plant derivatives can't be used to alleviate health problems, then next time you get acid indigestion, try leaving the salt-packed Gaviscon alone and sip a cup of peppermint tea instead. Not only does peppermint tea ease the immediate acid problems, but if taken regularly over several weeks, one tends to forget what the acid indigestion feels like. Perhaps a double-blind study would show that peppermint tea surpasses Gaviscon and the multi billion dollar stomach acid indigestion industry. But can you really see peppermint being treated in the same manor that these drugs are funded? Andrew K Fletcher, UK
