Hello! It has been a while, hasn't it? I promise, I have not forgotten you. I have been fairly busy with school and my job. I do have some news, however. I am on a gluten-free vegan alkalizing "diet" for the next 30 days. Not a diet in the "lose weight" sense of the word, but in the attain better health sense. My acid/alkaline balance is WAY acid. This is most likely due to extremely acidic water, but I am alkalizing my body just to be safe.
