Customer Question
I was just looking...

I was just looking up pH of 8.5 as that is my reading.

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

None of those. I do eat a very alkaline diet - no meat, dairy, sugar, grains, just mostly vegs and fruit. I eat a large lunch and a small dinner -- that's it.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I drink mainly water with lemon and a little apple cider vinegar. Sometimes I have tea. That's about it.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
