Hello my name is ammoman and I have been using alkaline water since nov. 09 and I have noticed a difference than using tap 7.0 water. I had a brain tumor when I was 13 and given 5 years to live after 5500 rads of radiation, I am now 43 and going strong. I found about alkaline water and started it in 09. What a difference this has made in my life. Great stuff. I have also started sun gazing up to 4.15 min now.
