As a bartender at Club 33 and at Mr Stox in Anahiem, California ( 11 yrs.,check out their web site) I have three bar remendes for those times when someone has hiccups ,up-set tummy and dry skin.
Hiccups... One night a few years ago, working the bar at Mr Stox,there was a couple in for dinner. Sitting at the bar waiting for a table and enjoying a glass of wine,I noticed this lady who had Hiccups!!! As a bartender I started talking with them and discovered that she had these hiccups for the past few hours. She stated " I am tired of these and have tried everything, blowing in a bag, drinking from a glass up-side down or being scared,like BOO-scared you." I told her that I had something I think will work, her husband told me " you help her get rid of these and you will receive a nice tip," music to my ears.
I cut a lime into quarters, and placed them on a paper napkin, then covered them in Angostura Bitters. I gave her one and I took one and told her to bit down on the lime and swallow, I did it first and then she followed. Approx. a minute later , hiccups gone,nice tip!!!
Anyone can buy Angostura Bitters at any major market, it is found in the beverage section,usually next to the tonic water or club soda. Bottle has a oversize white label with a yellow cap, approx. $7 dollars for a small bottle.
Heartburn...I have done this over the years and it works, plain and simple. After eating to much,or waking up in the middle of the night with heart burn or when my daughters growing up were having their monthly thing,we would always ask for Ginger Ale and Angostura Bitters.
Pouring Ginger Ale into a glass to about half full and dashing 4 to 5 drops of Angostura Bitters into the glass,approx. 15 minutes later, life is good. That is why we always had cans of Ginger Ale and Angostura Bitters stored at our home over the years. Don't use bottles of ginger ale, it will go flat, cans are the best.
Grape-seed Oil....you can buy this at Trader Joes for about $3 a bottle. Approx. 3 to 4 times a week before bed-time,I take a tablespoon of grapeseed oil,straight,yummy!!! Have taken this for years, alot of my friends take it, great for skin and healing. Haven't put lotion on my hands for years,been told many times I have great skin for a guy. About 2 years ago cut my finger real bad,8 sitches bad,doctor told me, 2 weeks to heal!!! Started taking Grapeseed-oil everynight for 8 days, healing was fast, the doctor was impressed.
Remember these work for me, my family and some close friends. If you want, check on line about Grape-seed oil or Bitters.
