All Water Filtration Is Not Created EqualAbby
DISTILLED WATER AND REVERSE OSMOSIS
Let me say that in my thirty-five years of practice I have never tried to pass these two sources of water off as being suitable for human consumption. Many health practitioners, however, are often surprised to hear me say that drinking distilled water or reverse osmosis water on a regular, daily basis is potentially dangerous… and here is why.These two water sources are not found in Nature.
Distilled and reverse osmosis water are essentially void of minerals and are acidic. Distillation is the process in which water is boiled, evaporated and the vapor condensed.
While fasting, using distilled water or reverse osmosis can be dangerous to your health because of the rapid loss of electrolytes (sodium, potassium, chloride) and trace minerals like magnesium. Deficiencies of these minerals can cause heartbeat irregularities and high blood pressure.
Distilled Water: When it comes in contact with air, it absorbs carbon dioxide, making it acidic. Acidosis is the root cause of all disease.
The more distilled water you drink, the more acidic you will become. Along with this comes inflammation, which leads to pain, suffering, crystallization and internal scar tissue.
Most commercial beverages that people consume are made from distilled water. Studies have consistently shown that regular consumers of soft drinks (with sugar or sugar free) spill huge amounts of calcium, magnesium and other trace minerals into their urine due to the acidic nature of these commercial beverages.
Hello, osteoporosis and hormonal imbalance. Let us not forget that these commercial beverages are the king of acidity, which equals inflammation, mutation, pain, suffering, crystallization and internal scar tissue.
The more minerals we lose, the greater the risk for: osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, calcium deposits throughout the body, hypothyroidism, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure and a list of degenerative diseases generally associated with premature aging.
Reverse Osmosis: To fill a 1.5-gallon container of reverse osmosis water you will waste 13.5 gallons down the drain.
Cooking foods in distilled or in reverse osmosis water pulls the minerals out of the food and lowers their nutrient content. So, don’t ask yourself why ‘you’re dead on your feet’ (zombie).
Cooking with soft water is found to cause substantial loss of all essential elements from vegetables, meat and cereals. Magnesium and calcium mineral loss can reach up to 60%, even higher losses for some other micro-elements such as copper 66%, manganese 70% and cobalt up to 86% loss. In contrast to the above, when hard water is used for cooking the loss of these elements is much lower due to the water being full of minerals.
ACCORDING TO THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION
Demineralized water ‘attacks distribution piping and leaches metals and other materials from the pipes and associated plumbing materials.’ If it does that to pipes just think what it’s doing to your internal plumbing system.
Your body contains electrolytes (e.g., potassium, sodium) in certain concentrations that are regulated by your body cells. If you drink distilled water your intestine is forced to take electrolytes from body reserves, which in turn, will deplete you of your normal electrical charge and leave you drained… like any other battery.
Drinking distilled water leads to the dilution of electrolytes within body fluids and cells. This in turn, will create an imbalance throughout the body.
Symptoms at the beginning of this condition include:
More severe symptoms include muscle spasms and impaired heart rate
We know that Whole Plant Based Foods are the main source of calcium and magnesium for our bodies. So just know that if you lack Whole Plant Based Foods and drink distilled or reverse osmosis water you will increase the chance of running a deficit of these two minerals within your body.
One of the most common types of water purification systems used in our homes today is the carbon filter system. These filters may work for removing many harmful substances but do not remove toxic metals, harmful nitrates, sodium and fluoride that contaminate our water. Other disadvantages of the carbon filter system are that they require frequent filter replacements, may clog and can harbor mold.
Water containing a lot of sediment can clog up your filter thereby greatly reducing the normal lifetime of the filter.
Organic substances from water may become trapped in the carbon filter. If left unused for periods of time, this creates an environment for the growth of mold.
Acidic water is common in many households. The minerals that cause your water to be acidic dissolve and pass through the filter, resulting in acidic water remaining acidic.
Carbon filters require frequent filter changes. To remain at peak performance this is an ongoing expense.
The bottled water industry really needs an enema for all the manure they pitch (fork) at the general public.
FACTS ABOUT BOTTLED WATER
It takes an estimated 3 quarts of water to produce 1 quart of bottled water.
Worldwide, an estimated 2.4 million metric tons of plastic are used to bottle water each year.
Bottled water is destructive to the environment.
67 million bottles are thrown away each day.
Only 10% of bottles are recycled.
Transporting large amounts of plastic or glass bottled water requires an incredible amount of fuel for it’s delivery to you.
There is a lot of conflicting information surrounding bottled water, some positive, some negative.
Here is The Whole Truth to guide you down the path towards healthier water consumption.
What is the true source of your bottled water?
Approximately 40% of bottled water is simply bottled tap water. So now where are those harmful chemicals you were trying to avoid? You are still drinking them along with a list of other chemicals released from the plastic bottles (Oops, cancer anyone?).
THE DANGERS OF PLASTIC
You may not realize it, but there are serious health risks to you and your family from drinking water from plastic bottles. If you choose to drink out of plastic water bottles, then you are potentially being exposed to the following chemicals.
BPA (BISPHENOL A)
BPA is commonly used to make polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins to maintain the ‘quality’ of canned food and drink. If you are feeding your baby, or older child using plastic bottles or containers, you may be exposing them to harmful chemicals. You may want to change over to a glass or stainless steel container.
BPA is an estrogen-mimicking chemical that has been associated with a range of serious health problems such as:
Prostate and Breast Cancer
Early puberty in girls
Learning and behavioral problems
Fertility problems in females
Decreased sperm count
Altered immune system function
Phthalates are widely used to make plastics like polyvinyl chloride (PVC) more flexible. These chemicals disrupt natural hormone levels and have been linked to a wide range of developmental and reproductive complications such as:
Reduced sperm count
Testicular atrophy or structural abnormality
Studies have shown that exposure to high levels of phthalate in pregnant women increased the chances of their male offspring to have certain demasculinized traits and produce less testosterone.
VITAMIN WATER: Just Another Unhealthy Soda
What’s in a name? U fell for it. One of the biggest scams brought to us today by soda manufacturers is ‘Vitamin Water’. Marketers have worked their magic to disguise this new drink as a ‘health drink’, and a healthy alternative to soda pop, by promoting the added benefits of vitamins and minerals (evil plot). Don’t be fooled! These added vitamins and minerals don’t come close to a nutritional drink.
Vitamin Water is one of the worst types of bottled water you can put into your body.
These so called healthy drinks contain health damaging additives such as:
High fructose corn syrup (causes obesity and diabetes)
Food dyes (affect physical and emotional health)
Just like the phrase Healthcare System, Vitamin Water is also a wolf in sheep’s clothes.
Buyer beware… or be dead wrong.
