Thanks for the information. However, the article you quote is more about the benefit of alkaline water in the treatment of LPR (a form of acid reflux) than it is about benefits that a Mediterranean diet. It does not state that a MedDiet does the trick, it states that "Exposure of pepsin to alkaline water with a pH level greater than 8 has been shown to inactivate pepsin, suggesting that alkaline water might be useful as an adjunct treatment for patients with LPR." The MedDiet is treated in the article more as a proxy for a diet that is generally low in acid. I'm not knocking the MedDiet - it's the one I follow - I'm just making a very important clarifying point to help reflux sufferers find relief for their symptoms.
