Updated: Feb 18, 2020
A health transformation can start right when you wake up. There are 2 simple and inexpensive tests you can do before you get out of bed that can shed light into your unique physiology. First, the burp test for stomach acid production: mix ¼ tsp baking soda in 4 oz water and place on your nightstand when you retire. Drink this immediately upon waking and set a stopwatch. Normal: you burp within < 3 min, impaired: you burp in 3-5 min, severely impaired: you burp after >5 min or not at all.
