    Ok, thanks Martin. Sooooo, how does that work? Can you make this yourself or do you buy it, I've certainly never seen it for sale in the UK.

    Hi Spinergie
    Do you have a RO system in France - or is this just in the UK you are talking about?
    When I researched getting an RO system I found the Eastern water board system and it sounded really good - but I haven't followed it up as regards bringing one to France.
    Your experience sounds very positive but I'd love to know more about your initial setting up.
    Thanks

    Thanks for that info - very useful and I'll have a good think about it.
    I too use a filter plus some bottled spring water at the moment. I'm pretty confident that we have good water here as it comes out of the limestone hills (so very hard!) and is pretty much untreated, but I would definitely go for the RO system if we go back to UK. Not sure of our future plans yet but def. want to live nearer the coast before too long...

    How bout PGE2 test? I'm not sure what Jack is saying in that webinar (Sleep Rx maybe?I can't remember right now)because it is kind of a blur when he says it.
    It has something to do with a hormone ratio or something regarding Progesterone and DHEA (?). It sounds like a pretty important test

    This may sound dumb but I really don't know the real meaning of "n=1".
    I know it has to do with your own personal "thunderstorm" but that's about it
