How’s Your Water Intake?
I’m not asking about the quantity of your water intake, although that’s important too. What I’m really asking is, how is the quality of your water?
Did you know that city water can contain up to as many as ninety different contaminants? Contaminants such as nitrogen, bleach, pesticides, metals and toxins produced by bacteria. That means that while you’re supplying your organs with much needed hydration you may also be adding to your overall toxic load.
Filtering your water is the best way to ensure that you’re contributing to your health while hydrating.
There are many types of water filtration systems that can offer you a cleaner water supply. Here are some ideas for you:
My likely favorite water filter is manufactured by Berkey, and I’ll tell you; it’s pricey. I’ll also tell you we don’t own one; it’s pricey. But, maybe one day…
Five percent isn’t much at all, but at least it’s something.
You’re putting in so much effort with your nutrition and lifestyle changes and I would hate to see you working against those efforts by adding to your toxic load unknowingly as a result of your water supply.
Using iodine is probably the least known solution for purifying water. Why? Because this solution has such a low price tag to it. Just add a few drops of iodine to the water you’ve collected and let it sit for 30 minutes. Depending on the iodine brand you buy (and there are lots of them available), the label may have directions for you.
BTW – if you’re on thyroid meds, please check with your doctor before using iodine.
THAT’S A WRAP
I just wanted to bring some water awareness to you and offer some insight to make sure you’re not affected by the harmful chemicals in most drinking water.
I hope this has helped you and as always, if you have any questions, please let me know.
