Is Your water healthy? Part 1

The midwest gave me many incredible gifts.

Some hoped and prayed for.

Some worked hard for.

Others, quite unexpected and surprising.

One of those gifts - water.

Maybe you're thinking, ummmm, Janelle, there's water basically everywhere.

True. However... THIS water was magical.

And I don't mean in a "drink the cool-aid" kind of way 😉.

When it comes to water, there are different kinds.

  • Tap
  • Bottled
  • Distilled
  • Alkaline
  • "Vitamin"
  • Filtered tap
  • Magical

Tap water - easy, convenient, and may or may not taste disgusting. Aaaaaand most of it is contaminated with all kinds of toxins that can lead to serious health problems.

Arsenic (linked to an increased risk of the development of several types of cancer).

Aluminum (increases your risk for Alzheimer's disease, and linked to hyperactivity, learning disabilities, gastrointestinal disease, skin problems, Parkinson's disease, liver disease).

Fluoride (increased risk of cavities, weakening your immune system and accelerating aging due to cellular damage).

And then, there are others' prescription and OTC drugs, Disinfection Byproducts (BBPs), and more.

Bottled water - sorry to burst your bubble, 40% of bottled water is bottled TAP WATER!

And then with plastic bottles we've got the BPA issue - hormone disruptor linked to learning & behavioral problems, negatively impacted immune systems, prostate & breast cancer, obesity climbs, and early puberty in both genders.

Distilled water - here's the deal, it's boiled then evaporated away from the minerals that are naturally found dissolved in water.

Why does this matter - because now the water is acidic. Like our bodies and basically everything else in nature, the water will seek to neutralize itself and balance out. How? By drawing minerals right out of your body! Do you know what basically every process in your body, your teeth, your bones, etc. all need for vitality? Minerals!

Alkaline water - swinging the other direction, alkaline water (as indicated in the name) lacks acidity. A perk of alkaline water is that it can help you detox, but only on a very short term basis (no more than a week or two).

So many people already have low stomach acid and digestive issues, long term use interferes with your body's natural digestive process by further reducing the acid needed to properly break down and absorb food.

Alright, take a few deep breaths as you're evaluating you water, and stay tuned for Part 2.
