Based on results of a new study from researchers at Houston Methodist and Stanford University, adults who take proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) for heartburn and other gastrointestinal ailments are between 16% and 21% more likely to experience a heart attack than those who do not use the widely available acid blocker.
the key ingredient in our Aquae A.M.O.R.E. recipe is LOVE
Pure Water free of any ‘dissolved solids’ or other substances – just H2O – is pH neutral, meaning it has a pH reading of 7. Most tap water and unhealthy foods have an acidifying effect on the body, leading to a condition know asAcidosis. Aqua A.M.O.R.E.™ has a pH level at a healthy 8.5 to 9.5*, which means it is alkaline without being over-the-top. In general, alkalinity promotes and maintains health; acidity tears it down (much like acid rain in nature). While some acidity is natural and necessary, most people suffer from being too acidic (Acidosis). Many nutritionists and scientists have proven that much of today’s ill health – ranging from cancer, diabetes, obesity, weak immunity, hypertension, etc. – is due in part to this chronic acidosis – the over-acidification of the body - from the consumption of foods and liquids that are overly acidifying (ex: junk foods, sodas, coffee, sugar, red meat, etc.) Drinking alkaline waters offers a convenient and safe way to provide the extra boost necessary to bring our bodies into balance. Like drinking a liquid anti-oxidant, alkaline water is naturally detoxifying, health-enhancing and immune-boosting.

Heartburn occurs when the Lower Esophageal Sphincter is weakened by pressure and allows a little bit of stomach acid to seep into your esophagus, the pressure is caused most often than not by bloating. .

The method he is suggesting is only going to suppress stomach acid, if you read my OP you will see that heartburn is not what you think it is, it's often not caused by too much stomach acid but too little. The best method if you want something to neutralise the burn is Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar, this has a slightly higher ph than stomach acid so it will neutralise the stomach acid but it will still break down the food as it's another form of acid.
If my mum gets heartburn at any time now she uses that and it's actually quite palatable. It also works instantly.
When you water fast your body enters a mode that our ancestors used during winter periods when food was scarce and this ketosis. This is not starvation as some people would say but your body starts breaking down fat and scar tissue into nutrients and allows the body to use ketones instead of glucose as your primary brain fuel.
"Water intoxication occurs when you have flushed too many electrolytes and other nutrients needed for your brain to function, but the damage is done when the water swells the cells, particularly your brain cells. It just swells them easier when you have an electrolyte deficiency".
