How many O's consume this as part of their healthy protocol?

I've never been one for canned drinks, and it felt odd to open one up yesterday and drink. The taste was OK-I mean how good or bad can a can of carbonated water taste? I mixed it with Pineapple juice.

What are your thoughts on drinking carbonated water? Yes, it's settles the acidity of an O's stomach, suppresses appetite and all...but really, I cant but think that carbonated water is still "manufactured" and how good can it be afterall?

Please share...

Hi Chef,

I agree with you regarding the taste of carbonated water. I prefer to drink naturally sparkling mineral water. Some of them really taste good, depending on the source, of course. Also by drinking them one gets a significant supply of minerals.

Maybe you should give it a try.

Cheers,
Yaman

I drink soda/seltzer water with my pineapple/cherry juice.  Just a splash or so with some ice makes for a very refreshing drink.  
I also loved "New York Seltzer" but have a really hard time finding it these days.
I agree with Yaman  and the mineral water, but I rarely drink it.  I think that mineral water is a lot less refreshing and thirst qunching.

I drink sparkling mineral water because both seltzer and club soda make my feet swell. And the mineral content of Gerolsteiner or Pellegrino really makes me feel a lot better. Interesting how people in the same blood type react differently, isn't it?

Hate, hate, hate (ok maybe hate is too strong of a word..), but I totally DISLIKE the taste of mineral water.  Makes me want to gag!  

I get seltzer and sweeten it a little with some stevia and have it over ice.

CAn someone explain why seltzer (which I love with some lime juice) is on my avoid list as a A. I don't understand why carbonated water is bad for me.

Thanks

Hi chander2nyc, nice to meet you

Seltzer is probably an avoid for you because carbonated water or sparkling mineral water tends to reduce stomach acid. While this is great for us Os with our higher acid levels, this is not so great for you As, who tend to have the opposite problem.

can someone tell me if i've got this right... the difference between carbonated water and Soda water.... Soda water has bicarbonate of soda in it (?sure i saw this on the ingredients label on the side of a bottle), and carbonated water gets its bubbles from carbon dioxide...??? is this so...?   is my understanding (or i heard/read it somewhere..) that carbon dioxide can leech calcium out of our systems, so if you have insufficient amounts of calcium in your system it will leech if from your bones...?? therefore when Dr D says Soda water it means Soda water, not the usual (in the uk at least) fizzy carbonated drinks....????? any clarity on this will be appreciated and will mean i will know what i'm talking about when i mention this to people, lol... ta x

http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?381

states it's an avoid for all types

and then at http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?517 and http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?380

it states beneficial to O sec & non sec.

Description is the same: "carbonated water".



Since I dont have high stomach acid, I should follow my instincts and not drink artficially made drinks like this.

Thanks for all your responses!

"Soda/carbonated water" is the generic term used for carbonated drinks in general, i.e. colas, carbonated fruit drinks etc. They also contain sugar or sweetener, which in the latter case one has to face the dangers of intaking artificial sweeteners like aspartame.

Soda/club on the other hand is carbonated drinking water. It does contain some sodium bicarbonate, but no other stuff. It is beneficial for all O's.

Naturally sparkling mineral water is "naturally carbonated" as the name implies. Some of them are carbonated by their own gas before being bottled. WHere do their gas comes from? Well, such water comes from deep sources where carbon dioxide is dissolved in it because of the pressure built by going deep down. So when it comes to surface, carbon dioxide bubbles out of water, just like it happens when you open the bottle.

Naturally sparkling mineral water can be a better choice then club soda, depending on its mineral content. The minerals are listed on the bottle, so you can make your own choice. For me, not only I like the taste of e.g. Gerolsteiner or some of our local brands here in Turkey, I benefit from minerals as well as neutralizing some of my stomach acid.

If you go for club soda, you may think of adding a pinch of Celtic sea salt or the like per liter in order to up your mineral intake.

Cheers,
Yaman

I just got some Seltzer Water from Wild oats and the only thing it has in it is carbonated water... doesn't that miss the point for O's?

I mean isn't the sodium bicarbonate the beneficial thing for our tummies?

What I've always been curious about is how it says in the TypeBase that it it positively influences disease suceptibility.  So something in me wants to say that it's not necessarily how it affects the stomach, but what it actually does when absorbed into the blood stream.  No?

I realize that it is fine for O's, my question was (and I may have wrote it so it was not understood properly): is it the carbonation or the sodium bicarbonate or both that make it beneficial for our tummies?

I'm asking because I can get the Seltzer Water without sodium bicarbonate or I can get the Club Soda which has sodium bicarbonate in it....

I want to get the one that's going to be of the most benefit.

Thanks!

sparkling mineral like gerolsteiner is best..........
not necessarily the sodium bicarbonate that does the trick, but it s an ok option.......
I have never really broken my head over that one.

Cannot drink mineral water.  As I stated earlier, it makes me want to throw up!!!

I had stopped drinking seltzer/club for years and because of this thread I thought I'd try it again since we O's don't have many choices in beverages.  Believe me, I drink my share of green tea and other beneficial teas and water and I drink ReCharge - not much but a little.  And that's about it.  So I liked the idea of mixing pineapple juice with the seltzer which I did.

Last night had a glass with a bit of pineapple juice.  Tummy got swollen and spent about an hour burping!  

What's that about?  Anyone else?

were there any additives in the juice or was it simply home made from a fresh piece of pineapple?

Yaman,

You're a gem, and a comprehensive one at that.

As for my $0.02, let's just say that I'm fairly convinced my entire ancestral line must've evolved adjacent to a naturally very carbonated pool of cold spring water. (That's on the one side of their settlement. I'm pretty sure they had a tepid bathwater spring on the other side, and a permanent overcast mist and shade that kept the place about 73 degrees F all the time.)

Hi Lola... it was organic pure pineapple juice - no additives.

I try always to not eat anything with additives and no packaged foods.  I'm not a completely obsessed but I'm close to it except when I hit a binge period.  But I'm working hard on that daily.

The more balanced, whole, pure and organic I keep my food, in line with ER4YT, the more my cravings disappear.

Realize that your immune system is centered in your digestive system. I have seen numbers stating anywhere from 55-80% of your immune system is in your digestive system.

Therefore, it makes sense that if you keep your digestive system happy that it will positively influence disease susceptibility.

I actually have been thinking about it and until my stool sample results come in from this IBS problem that has been going on for over a month now, I cannot make any assumptions about anything that happens to my poor digestive system!  

So I'll quit asking questions about food reactions until I get this healed.  

Thanks for your input.
