I woke up today feeling nauseous and really tired. I know a stomach bug was going around and was a little nervous! I decided to drink a lime bicarbonate drink. In a tall glass I put 1 Tablespoon of lime juice, 1/2 teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), 1/2 teaspoon of ginger (for the nausea), 2 drops of Stevia extract and water to fill the glass (probably 10 ounces.)

I sipped on this over the course of a half an hour or more. I used a straw to stir it often since the ginger would settle to the bottom.

Within an hour of finished it, I tested my pH. It was about 7.2, so slightly alkaline and in a good range for the time of day.

I have felt increasingly better all day.

Now that I have broken in to my pH test strips, I will probably be doing a lot of experimenting with them to see how different things affect my pH.
