I just started taking the alkalizing drink, and I've noticed that a lymph node in my neck that is usually a bit swollen has enlarged, and that I feel sick to my stomach a while after drinking it. Does this sound like cause for concern?
Also, I'm just curious how the drink works to alkalize the body, when ACV is acidic, as is pickling lime I'm sure. Are there any studies showing the safety and efficacy of long-term ingestion of these substances, particularly the pickling lime and Epsom salt?
Just out of curiosity, has anyone on here successfully eliminated acne by following this protocol? I have struggled with it for years, and I am hoping that this will help.
Last but not least, I have heard on this site that dairy is bad, but I am wondering if this is simply because it causes acidity, as do all-natural lean meats and whole grains, or is there another reason? I drink organic milk and eat goat cheese on a semi-regular basis, but I'm wondering if I should switch to soy. I've also read that soy can cause estrogen-related hormone problems, so maybe that's not a good option either! It's so difficult to find a good variety of foods to eat when trying to stick to these rules!
I appreciate any and all help with these matters.
