In the case of LPR vs GERD, stomach acid is not so much the issue as the digestive enzyme pepsin. Pepsin outside the stomach, refluxed up the esophagus, is what the high pH water is intended to offset.

It was recommended by a medical doctor, and it works for me allowing me to stop taking Prilosec, with its known adverse effects.

As always, YMMV

Ah yes, those proton pump inhibitors, they do come with their adverse effects...
