Do Not Drink the WaterToday, after watching Dr. Oz's presentation called,"Don't Drink the Water," I felt compelled to share this vitally important message.
Dr. Oz addressed and challenged his audience to take responsibility for the water that flows through the tap and into their homes.
He talked about the enemies that lurk within our water and shared some great resources including instructions on how to a obtain water report for your specific area.
He admonished his audience to never ever give a child a bath filled with ordinary tap water. You see your skin is the largest organ of your body. Can you imagine how much fluoride etc. your body soaks in during a bath?
He said that a baby sitting in tap water, or anyone standing under a
shower absorbs far more contaminants (like chlorine and fluoride) than they do when they are drinking it. That is a startling fact. I have to admit I've never considered these dangers before watching this show.
In this Article We Will:
- Examine Drinking Water Quality and Discuss Pure Drinking Water Options
- Discuss What lurks in your tap water
- Examine Bottled Water
- Consider the connection between good health and pure water
- Introduce Cutting Edge Technologies
- Save you Money
- Make it possible to drink clean, pure water from your own home
- Give you peace of mind
- Go beyond any other water filtration (introducing Alkaline-Ionized Water)
Next we will take a closer look at the water you drink and bathe in. Not all water is created equal and most likely the water coming out of your tap is not fit for bathing in or drinking.
Water in it's original and natural state was pure, clean, hydrating and so very good for you. Today the water that flows from our taps have many toxins, medications (flushed down the toilet and into our water supply) and high acidity.
Our municipalities add chlorine, chloramines, fluoride and all sorts of other chemicals to adjust flavor, kill bacteria and cover odors. Each of these toxic materials has some pretty nasty side effects. Then there are the increasing levels of pesticides and toxic metals leaching into the water from farming and manufacturing each year.

Good clean water is foundational to your health. Many people are somewhat aware of the dangers hidden in drinking water from the tap. When it comes to tap water "Don't Drink the Water!"
I am always amazed when I go to the grocery store to see people buying bottled water. I wonder if they know about the inconsistencies found in the cleanliness and purity of bottled water.
I also wish that more people knew that there are much better options to obtaining clean, fresh, pure drinking water.
- Is expensive
- Is an unreliable source of clean water (whose Spring?)
- Packaging in plastic bottles is NOT safe
Read on to learn about various methods of changing tap water into clean, pure, living water that will promote good health.
Alkaline water neutralizes acidity in the body caused by stress, diet & air pollution. A higher pH in the body reduces the need for fat & cholesterol protecting the body from damaging acids.
Abundant Negatively charged hydroxyl ions, (OH -) are found in alkaline water. These hydroxyl ions act as natural antioxidants and neutralize harmful free radicals. In addition Alkaline water:
- Improves the body's absorption of essential nutrients
- Improves body function by cleaning your cells from the inside out.
- Using water with a higher pH level improves the taste of beverages and food.
- Alkaline water tastes lighter with a pleasantly sweet flavor.
- Cooking with alkaline water improves taste & quality of foods
- Provides superior hydration and nutrition at the cellular level.
- Ionization breaks clusters of water molecules into smaller micro-clusters, reducing the size of the clusters from the 11-16 molecules in standard water to just 5-6 molecules in ionized water. Smaller clusters pass through cell walls more easily and hydrate the cells more quickly.
- Faster hydration allows the body to regulate its temperature more efficiently.
- Micro-clusters of mineral-bearing ionized water also deliver nutrients more efficiently to the cells
- Detoxifies cells more efficiently than standard drinking water.
- Due to their smaller size, micro-clusters of ionized water molecules are expelled from the cells more efficiently, carrying damaging toxins out of the cells and flushing them out of the system.
- The negative charge of ionized alkaline water will attract the positive ions of acids and neutralize them within the body.
Clean, healthy water is easily absorbed by your body and hydrates and nourishes it. The best great tasting water with antioxidant properties and proper pH levels for drinking is Alkaline water.
Learn about Alkaline Water Here:
While ionized Alkaline water units have been on the market for years .. they have also been very expensive. Recently the supplier for Indoor Environmental Systems found a new superior alkalized water unit which costs 2/3 less than the Unit we had planned on purchasing.

We own an Alkaline Unit you will find on the link above. When we first received it my husband (who is a scientist by nature) was intent on testing the water created by the unit. He and I were both very pleased to find the water to be -9.5 which is really great for alkaline water.
Did you know....
- regulates body temperature
- transports nutrients and oxygen
- helps detoxify the kidneys and liver
- dissolves vitamins and minerals
- cushions the body from injury by lubricating joints.
- The human body is composed of 25 percent solid matter (the solute) and 75 percent water (the solvent).
- The average body contains 40 to 50 quarts of water. Your blood is 82 percent water, muscles are 75 percent water, the brain is 75 percent water and bone is 22 percent water.
Years ago I was told, by a holistic nutritionist, that I should drink distilled water. I did drink it for awhile but then began doing research because I knew that the minerals were taken out of distilled water and couldn't believe it would be good for me in the long-term.
What I learned was that when red blood cells are immersed in distilled water, they slowly swell until they burst. That’s not good!
As you reflect on the vital need for clean healing water consider:
- Save money by purchasing a quality water unit for your home
- Purchase a shower head that filters your water and allow it to fill your bathtub before considering taking a bath in tap water.
- Owning a unit means no more running to the store to buy unreliable bottled water.
- Research Alkaline Ionized water for yourself. It's the closest form to the way God made water in the beginning.
I wish you the best as you journey through this life and strive to care for the One and Only Body entrusted to you by our Creator God.
