You invest in your health by including the Completement Formulas in your daily wellness routine. You drink half your body weight in pounds in ounces of water and add 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt to every 32 ounces of water you drink. But you use tap water. What’s wrong with this picture?
Not All Waters Are the Same
As I said in Module 95 of my Completement Now Health Program:
We are told that most of the water around us is polluted. It’s contaminated from all the chemicals in our environment or poisoned by chlorine and fluoride in an attempt to make it safe!
Chlorine and chloramine are used to keep water free of infectious organisms. Fluoride is a misguided and dangerous attempt to make our teeth stronger.
But everyone knows that ingesting chemicals could be dangerous. This is ordinary common sense.
Is Fluoride Good for Me?
Let me share some of the information I’ve found, and you be the judge!
Fluoride is a waste product of many industries, including phosphate fertilizer
production and glass production. Therefore, it became a lucrative solution to dump waste fluoride into water supplies under the guise of preventing cavities. You’ll hear stories that fluoride was put in the drinking water in concentration camps to make inmates stupid and docile, so it comes as no surprise that a recent study in China shows that the higher the fluoride in the water the lower the IQ in children.
A crazy irony in the fluoride wars is that 41% of teens now suffer from dental
fluorosis. It’s the white mottling on teeth chipping away at dental enamel that’s caused by fluoride. And it doesn’t even prevent cavities!
What about Chlorine and Chloramine?
Many of you will remember when bleach was called, “Chlorine Bleach,” a product that is designed to remove stains and whiten your clothes. Would you drink bleach from the bottle, even if it was diluted? No, of course, not. So, why would you want to drink tap water when chlorine is used as a disinfectant in the water?
What about Chloramine? Did you know that it is a chemical that is made from combining chlorine and ammonia together? I remember my Mother opening all the windows in her kitchen and putting a small dish of ammonia in her oven. The next morning it was easy to wipe off baked on grease. Is that something you want in your body?
Should I Drink Distilled or Reverse Osmosis Water?
I don’t suggest using distilled water for drinking. It is devoid of chemicals but also devoid of minerals which give it its life force and make it an unparalleled electromagnetic conductor that orchestrates the body’s metabolism.
If you do use distilled or reverse osmosis water, note that you should replace the minerals missing from the water (both the magnesium and other electrolytes). You can do this by adding ReMag and ReMyte to your distilled or reverse osmosis drinking water.
What about Bottled Water?
Unfortunately, there is no regulatory agency that assures the quality of bottled water. So, water companies don’t necessarily tell you where the water comes from, whether it is tested, and if tested, did the water pass the tests.
You can research a particular brand of bottled water and ask the company these questions (where does the water come from, is it tested, and did the water pass the test as contaminant free). However, it has been my experience that only one water company was willing to answer these questions.
If you do use bottled water, I personally would get water that:
- is high in magnesium
- is low in calcium
- has a neutral pH
What Can I Do to Drink Pure Water?
Bottom line? As I’ve said in many articles on water quality, the Environmental Working Group recommends that you drink filtered tap water. (They started making this recommendation in around 2011.) You’ll save money, drink water that’s purer than tap water and help solve the global glut of plastic bottles.
What you should look for in a water filter:
- Does the unit remove particles and sediment? What size particles are filtered out?
- Does the unit remove bacteria? Does it prevent bacterial growth in the unit?
- Does the unit remove fluoride, chlorine, chloramine, heavy metals?
Now that we have done a general survey of the issues involved in getting contaminant-free water and solutions so that you, too, can drink pure water with your ReMag and ReMyte, let us know if you have any specific questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
