I read on a post here a little about the alkaline diet and it looks quite interesting. I was wondering if anyone here has tried it and had any success. If so, how long does it take to where you feel any improvement?

Have you found any bottled water that has a high ph or have you tried making your own with baking soda? I bought a test kit yesterday and my water is about 6.8 which is too acidic so I tried making some with baking soda. Being it's about the only thing I can drink, I've had quite a bit today and my throat actually feels worse.

I'm so desperate to get rid of this cough and sore throat which according to my ENT, is silent heartburn. I have started taking 2 prevacid a day to see if my cough gets better and then I hope to cut back to 1 a day and then, hopefully, slowly stop it completely.

If you've had any success or even if you've tried it and it didn't work, I'd love to hear about it.
