Also, that's THE biggest reason I haven't been able to alkalize my body faster because of my absolute and total refusal to give up Starbucks Cafe Verona Dark Roast. Sorry man, that's one of the few pleasures in life that I'm not willing to give up.
I never considered alkalizing the water beforehand. How does the potassium bicarbonate affect the flavor of the coffee though? I recently bought and am using potassium: bicarbonate; citrate and chloride.
On a side note...I got rid of 98% of my diabetic symptoms...hurting feet, headache etc when eating sugar by buying an ionic silver generator online and a couple of canadian silver eagle coins and drilled a hole in the center of each. I now make gallons of ionic silver myself. I am now eating ice cream, king size candy bars etc with no negative effects at all. lol My personal healing is coming around nicely. I drink 8oz of 5-10ppm ionic silver daily. My breathing is flawless now and I feel strong as a ox. And I'm not dead nor have I turned blue from drinking so much ionic silver...I just feel hecka-more alive and healthy!!! Still taking at least 75 drops SSKI daily...some days 150 drops w/14gms vitamin C and other vitamins. I've been doing 75-150 drops/day SSKI for at least 10 months now.
