Anyone Drink High Alkaline Water?

I have been battling with LPR (silent acid reflux) which makes me very hoarse. I'm trying to get back to "normal" although the restrictions are hard for me. No tomatoes, onions, chocolate, carbonated beverages, juices, citrus, etc. I was reading a blog where someone said they drink high alkaline water after meals as it helps get rid of the acid. Just curious if anyone drinks it for ANY reason.

I don't know if it's true or not, but I've been told by "a health-food-type" doctor that Arrowhead is the most alkaline of the bottled varieties.

Well, further research has proved that wrong. I googled akaline bottled water brands and found a complete list of all brands, and Arrowhead is definitely not akaline.

If you want to achieve a proper Ph balance diet. Akaline water is the best route. Akaline means your ph balances level are higher than 7. Acid levels high in your diet creates deficiencies in your immune or your organs.

What does your physician have to say?

It is worth trying, but keep in mind that everyone has their own body and different experiences with things. I was drinking a liter of 10ph alkaline water every day and got sores in my mouth. So, it was too much for me after a while. When I take my 5 gallon water bottles to fill, I usually do one gallon of alkaline water (10ph) mixed with 4 gallons of regular reverse osmosis.

There is a natural source for alkaline water not too far from me in Carlsbad, CA. I used to go there to fill up my 5 gallon water bottles. It is only 7 or 8 on the ph scale, but the water there is the most delicious/refreshing I've had anywhere. I started drinking alkaline water because of the taste of the Carlsbad water and other than feeling more refreshed/hydrated when I drink it, I haven't noticed any other benefits.

I didn't ask my physician but did just google re time to drink. All articles seem to say you should wait 2 hours after a meal as you need the acid to digest.

I don't drink it but I do have GERD. Avoiding the foods that you have listed (and no alcohol or fatty food) in the evening is really not that difficult. Also try elevating your head 4-6 inches when you sleep will help too. I bought a sleep number bed that allows elevation of the head has also helped.

My aunt says that the most common reason people battle with acid reflux is that they have an undiagnosed allergy to something they eat frequently. And that the two most frequently undiagnosed allergies are to Milk and Wheat (glutten).

My aunt swears she cured herself of GERD by stopping her consumption of glutten, which she claims she was allergic to and was causing her GERD.

This is true for my doctor., she said she is cured of her acid reflux, IBS and severe intestinal issues since she went gluten free. I am better with a number of my other symptoms but not with acid relux after I go gluten free.

Yes. I use alka seltzer for heartburn or hangovers. ;)

Thanks all - quick update. I drank some of the water late afternoon with no problem but....I drank some 45 minutes before breakfast and had stomach pains so I stopped.
