    If you burn yourself not very hard, you wet burned place and put over thik layer of soda. Stay with it not less 20-30min.
    Drinking 1 teespoon soda in 250gr very warm water in the morning before breakfast, you will clean your digestion trakt and help its function. 20min.after you must drink about 200gr.warm water with lemon juice for balance. If you do this proceedure every day, you will have perfectly working stomach.
