Thank you, thank you, thank you to all who have gone out on a limb and taken the time to post such useful information on this message thread. I was really close to buying one of these machines, and needless to say I will NEVER be buying one after the feedback seen here. I came across the living water machine a few years ago after seeing an ad on the Newsmax website. I checked out the website, called and asked questions, and never did anything with it because of a feeling in my gut that things just didn't seem quite right. I had totally forgotten about it until recently when my wife and I started changing our diet based on the book, "The PH Miracle." I was diagnose a few years ago with ulcerative colitis and have been searching for more natural and holistic ways of treating myself besides all the perscription meds. So when the PH book mentions the Living Water machine it triggered my memory and I began to look further into buying one. I checked out the website again, called again, and scoured the internet to find anything I could. Here's what I have decided. 1: John E. is a total jerkoff, 2: If his claims were real they would be substatiated by scientific data, 3: The website is a total joke--disorganized, unprofessional, lousy graphic, no new information since I first saw the site like 4 years ago, 5: any supposed testimonials are either a total fabrication or based entirely on a really strong placebo effect.
As much as I would love to cure all of my bodily ailments and save the world with a water distiller, I am convinced that my best option is to purchase a really good reverse osmosis filter to supplement or replace the ceramic/charcoal one I am currently using. God bless.
