Alkaline Water – after 4 weeks of drinking

12 Nov

I have been reading lately on water and the health benefits of  consuming Alkaline Water. I decided to do a quick study. I purchased some Eternal Water from Whole Foods. I tried to drink a gallon or more each day. I’ve always had some acid reflux issues and would drink lots of carbonated Perrier and LaCroix water to help belch out the gas or I would use tums or pepcidac pills. After the switch of drinking only Alkaline Water at my discretion, at home, traveling or at the office. Yes, I would drink water with lemon if I was out at a restaurant etc. I can say that more than 95% of my consumption was from the Eternal brand. I have no endorsement to this brand, I like the water. I can honestly say that I have had NO acid indigestion, and have NOT needed any tums, pepcid, or any antacid pills. I don’t even need to drink the carbonated waters anymore cause I have no internal gas to get out. This has been a great choice in my life, and I plan to continue. We as humans are made up of over 60% of water, and there are plenty of studies about water consumption. In short there are lots of great articles about consuming alkaline water, here is one to get you up to speed from  livestrong.com

Cigars for Celebration – Arturo Fuente Opus X

Years ago when my military friends arrived safely back home we would celebrate by drinking whiskey and smoking cigars. I stopped smoking celebratory cigars years ago after my grandfather passed away from lung cancer. He was a heavy smoker back in his day and also worked in the coal mines, and a GM factory at final paint inspection for pickup trucks. One of my best friends was in town and wanted a cigar so I agreed since it’s been so many years, and lit one up. We didn’t just choose any, it’s always been Arturo Fuente Opus X brand cigars that we smoke and wow they are awesome! They are pricey from $15 up to $90 a cigar but well worth it if you want a great burning cigar. I highly recommend trying them out. We enjoyed them so much that we smoked again the next night he was in town, and today is his birthday, does this call for 3 nights in a row? We shall see.
