To avoid this situation,
fruit juices or fruit should always be eaten
at the beginning of food. Again, when the diet
consists of a mixture of cooked and uncooked
foods, the uncooked should always be eaten first.
Also when the meal consists of two courses,
a sweet and a savory dish, sufferers from indigestion
should try taking the sweet course first.
Many of these acidic
fruit juices are strongly antiseptic and actually
destroy the germs that cause the teeth to decay.
On the other hand, they do not attack the enamel
of the teeth, while inorganic acids do.
Nothing cleanses the teeth so effectually as
to thoroughly chew a large and juicy apple!
