Unbenounced to me I have recently learned that I have been battling Lyme Disease for 50+ years.
One thing that has become apparent to me is that I hear all kinds of discussion about diet and supplements but little reference to water intake. Through my experience I have waxed and waned on my intake of water. But I can honestly say that when I’m true to drinking half my body weight in ounces each and every day I have amazing results. And it has to be reverse osmosis water.

That's great that just drinking the water helps you. I have been drinking high ph water for years. I really never noticed a difference but I'm afraid to stop drinking it. If I am away I buy the highest ph they sell in a regular store. I usually try to add lemons to it. Do you think RO water is the best. I know its a bit controversial.

I do taste a huge difference in waters be it Spring, city or RO.
That in itself tells me that it is he best for me. I noticed that is what is pushedin hospitals as well.

I know there are a lot of health claims about alkaline water, but have you also read some of the potential disadvantages? Over the years, I've seen people push alkaline water pretty hard. (many were raw vegans) Later, many issued retractions and reversed their advice - suggesting that people NOT drink alkaline water.

If you have read both sides of the debate, then kindly disregard this note. My only concerns are for your health and your budget! turn

Dude
Thanks for your concern. I appreciate it your input. I have not researched the negative. What are they? I can look into it but you never know what to believe and what not to believe.

What water do you think is better?

I prefer spring water like Zephyrhilis, assuming you can get over the BPA from the bottle. It's slightly alkaline and contains trace minerals. I am of the opinion that we have a decrease in trace minerals and we would have this whether we had Lyme or not. Farming pulls the minerals out of the ground and when farmers fertilize, they don't replace trace minerals. Sure, they use a little boron on peanuts, but in general, none of the crops get fertilized with trace minerals. Over time, the fields have reduced quantities of trace minerals. This contributes to aging.
