My boyfriend suffered from acid reflux, and tried so many different prescriptions and otc products to no avail. All of the pills seemed to only mask the pain. We heard using alkaline water may help. We couldn't find a store that sold alkaline water? We did find a machine that turns regular tap water into alkaline rich water... you can buy one online. It worked 100% Now I drink it too, and I feel so much better overall!!! I believe in it!
