WOW, very interesting about Perrier helping with anxiety! I suffer from anxiety (seems to be very prevalent these days) and wonder if that "cure" encouraged my massive consumption! It's too bad I was getting stones, since Perrier is preferable to lorazepam! :/

I have switched to club soda, it is not as satisfying as Perrier et al, but no stones. I've also started drinking sodas again , mainly as a coping aid to starting a business, but I hope to soon wean myself off them and strictly club soda and still water. how boring! But, apparently necessary.

Interesting that you began gaining weight from Perrier. That may explain a few other aspects of my situation!

Thanks for all the input!!

I probably gained weight because I was so relaxed from the bromine.
You might try magnesium supplements since you don't get it from the Perrier. No calcium though !

Thank you for the important info PQ. I am a male who just had a horrible bout with a kidney problem. i drank perrier ang peligrino like a fish. 10 large bottles per week and now know that this was the problem. I was given antibiotics and a (gulp), vaginal cream by my doctor to apply to my sensitive area and it cleared up.
i will stop drnking these drinks and focuse on water.
Perrier King.

Also went through an additive phase with Pelligrino, seemed so thirst-quenching and satisfying, and harmless.

I did hear too much carbonation isn't good for you though, and started checking out stats and different brands on the internet. What I found quite astonishing was the salt content! Way too much, especially the way I was consuming it. Plus I seemed to be retaining water and prossibly the culprit why some may notice a weight gain.

Also that Italy doesn't have the best water and wondered what the hell I was drinking it for then?

Enjoy it now and again, but not my main water source anymore.

Perrier costs $11.67/gallon when bought in 12 packs of the 33.81 oz bottles.

You people willing to pay that much for ANY water are crazy.

Instead drink a local carbonated water and take a daily vitamin with minerals and pay < $2/gallon.

Just drink lots of water and a small glass of cranberry juice a couple of times a day.
Often if you have urinary problems your urine is acidic, so avoid fruit juices that are acidic eg citrus.

If I drink OJ (very rare I drink any juices or sodas) and then get a bit behind with my fluids I can feel like a cystitis type burning when I pass urine.
I've only had cystitis once in my life thank heavens,but it felt like this only worse.
It only happens when I drink fruit juice.

Oh, BTW, Magnesium is a laxative!

Magnesium becomes a laxitive if taken as Magnesium Oxide and over 750 MG per day.




Magnesium is a very important mineral of which most people are deficient.



PS.
you get "burning" because orange juice has vitamin C which greatly increases absorption of calcium. Your "cysts" are actually calcium crystals passing through your urethra.

I don't know if Perrier is really good for your health, but it's definitely bad for your wallet. I love sparkling waters, but I drink seltzers that have NO sodium, sweeteners or additives other than natural flavor. There are some good, cheap ones out there - I drink LaCroix and Polar.

Even though this post was long ago I would like to point out a couple things. ANYTHING not done in moderation will eventually make you ill. If you have prexisting illnesses you should watch your diet anyway.
