Is Your Water Making You Sick?
As a health coach, the first items we put our eyes on are most often nutrition and exercise.
Quality and quantity of food and water + movement.
Three of our biggest health issues in First World countries are:
~ Chronic dehydration
~ Acidity in the body (cancer cells grow well in acidic environments)
As a *holistic* health coach, we inspect all realms of life because the psychology behind why it’s challenging for many to make initial changes to nutrition and exercise habits, or a financial situation, is almost always connected to deeper issues.
For those of you who know me, you know that health and well-being is one of the primary fabrics of my life. As a lifelong athlete, competitive gymnast turned outdoor-adventuring athlete, I'm all about the get-outside-and-go.As a wellness obsessorturned holistic health professional and yoga teacher, I support people personally and professional toward extraordinary health and well-being.
The quality of water we drink is crucial to our health.
Yes, for those of us who live in a country with tap water available at the turn of a handle, we are LUCKY. We are fortunate. But why not uplevel ourselves individually so that we are thinking and acting with more clarity to come together to make something such as quality water possible for more people globally?
When we live in heightened states of well-being, it’s far more possible to create positive change for ourselves rippling out creating positive change for many.
Not all water is equal.
Most of the water we drink today is contaminated by medications, fluoride, chlorine, heavy metals and copious amounts of chemicals. These toxic materials flood our environments from different directions, including from an ever-increasing number of petrochemical plants.
Water filters on the market often strip the water of minerals and mold is common, an awful thought for those with mold and mildew allergies and sensitivities.
Not to mention that our skin is our largest organ. Anything that coats the epidermis is absorbed into the body.
With a couple decades of paying close attention, I believe I am doing right by my current quality of water intake and even the water I am bathing in - the most amazing, healing water available.
This water also allows us to cut down on hair products (always bottled in plastics), cleansers (more chemical and plastic pollution), and my pooch has proven to prefer better water, too.
Animals are far more intuitive than we are. Plus, they are drivenby their sense of smell, so most will choose drinkingwater free of medications, fluoride, chlorine, heavy metals and chemicals.
I did a few taste tests with our 95 pound Swiss Shephard, even switching bowls, to be sure.
At a young 47 years old in the fall of 2017, I completed full medical workups. My M.D. who is also a Functional Medicine doctor found not a thing wrong with me since curing myself of most allergy issues, exercise-induced asthma, adrenal fatigue and skin rashes through lifestyle shifts.
YET - I was still constantly thirsty.
I researched water like crazy while living in Los Angeles given that antidepressants are well-known to be present in the tap water. But nothing I tried made a difference in quenching my thirst.
I drank so much water, accompanied by endless visits to the ladies room, thus assuming I was hydrated. I chalked it all up to being a hyper active athlete living in dryer climates.
But now, I am no longer thirsty because of the quality of water I’ve been consuming over the last few months. Problem solved.
Hydrates the body 6 times faster than tap or bottled water
Neutralizes acidity (pH levels) in the body
Anti-aging given daily intake of its high levels of anti-oxidants
Improves digestion AND sleep
Kills 99% of bacteria and germs, chemical-free
Reduces oxidation (aging), reduces inflammation
Plus - 100’s of extra uses from cleaning vegetables to facial toner to cleaning our homes.
I use a certified medical grade device, backed by science, that is used in over 400 Japanese hospitals. Many lodges and restaurants are now also employing this health technology making their food and water taste better while making good health happen. Two birds with one stone - working smart.
In a couple months, my mystery hydration issue has at long last been resolved.
My skin is showing a little more glow even in the coldest and driest of climates - Wyoming Winters.
Can’t wait to see further results come spring. Hoping to shed a few years by then. (Wink Wink)
