In January 2014 my wife suggested I try drinking lemon juice during the day to create a more alkaline system. Talk in media that an alkaline system is healthier. I was not much on board with this because juices have often not flown well.
Well, since starting this I have not had an infection going on seven months. For me this is something.
My take on this is the combination of a more alkaline system with the use of probiotics helps the probiotics to do their job down there keeping things more healthy. I just spoke with my gastro Dr about this. He just stated, "We just don't know." He was of course skeptical about my perspective.
So I'm coming here, to you, for assitance. Is this a real solution or is it just me?
So this is what I have done. I reduced sugar (acid) intake. I have not stopped sugar entirely. Each day I take my viatamins and probiotics. My probiotic preference is Jarrow. The more 'types'of bugs the betters and cheaper than VSL#3'. Yes, I tried VSL#3 in the past. Was not effective. Might be more so now. Then I juice a lemon (becomes alkaline in the system) and with a full glass of water add about 3 tablespoons. I don't like it to strong. This glass I swallow through the day. Not all at once. Simple as that.
I'm shocked and skeptical. Everything attempted before has eventually failed. But so far so good.
Would appreciate any feedback as to your results. We have medically proven things in the past. Perhaps we can do it again.
Thanks for all your input here over the years. We are reading and researching to find a better and healthier life. Jan, you are the best.
