(NaturalHealth365) We know we need to drink plenty of water each day to hydrate ourselves. Our bodies, when we’re born, are about 90% water, and as adults, they are closer to 70%. When we die, that amount has dipped to 50% or even lower. Chronic low-level dehydration is a keystone of degenerative disease, in contrast with vibrant, healthful, hydrated bodies.
Hydrated, plump cells and plenty in fluids in the body help cells to communicate better with each other, remove waste, produce energy, and heal themselves.
Why water is so valuable to human health
Our bodies are self-healing organisms, as long as we give them what they need, and avoid the things that cause disease.
Insufficient water intake can cause our cells to shrivel up like raisins, which impairs the tiny organelles that keep each cell functioning. This leads to cells that store waste, can’t produce energy, and mutate, all leading to early cell death. When enough critical cells die and can’t be replaced, that’s the end for you.
An alarmingly high number of people don’t get the required minimum amount of water each day, and we’re not even talking about the quality of the water yet. We should be drinking between 1 and 2 liters of clean, fresh water each day for our best health. There are many people who don’t drink any water at all, for weeks or months on end!
They may be drinking sodas, juices, teas, coffees, and other beverages, but no pure water. Those other drinks can taste quite good, and can temporarily quench the feelings of thirst, but they don’t deeply and healthfully hydrate the body. They simply make the cells shrivel up a little more slowly than if no liquid was consumed at all.
The first important thing to remember is simply to drink more water!
An occasional other beverage, like tea or some coffee or juice is fine, but these don’t replace the pure water our bodies need to stay healthy and young. If you’re one of the people who barely drinks any water at all, it will take a month or so before you start to get used to the habit, and to start feeling really good.
Water flushes out many toxins, and even more when they’ve been building up for years in tissues that haven’t been able to remove them. So be prepared, you might have a few days where you don’t feel your best. Keep drinking water, and get plenty of rest, and these feelings will pass quickly, to be replaced by a vibrant energy you haven’t had since childhood.
Once you’ve mastered the art of drinking enough water, the next step, the next level, is to secure the best quality of water for yourself and your family. Tap water has many pollutants present in it.
The problem with ‘city water’
Yes, the water distributor for your city filters the water, but their primary goal is to keep water flowing that won’t make you immediately and severely ill. The water from the tap often has additives like chlorine or chloramines, which are designed to disinfect water, but can harm human health.
There can also be drug residues which are too small to be filtered out, so you could be drinking any number of pharmaceuticals. Many cities have tested positive for having mercury, lead, industrial wastes, and even arsenic in the home water supply. If this is the only water available to you, it’s better than no water at all, but consider going the next step as soon as you can.
The middle ground of water quality is the land of water filtration
Small charcoal pitcher type filters will remove some taste and a minimal amount of contamination, so they’re a good introduction. The next step is something like a Berkey filter, which sits on the counter and filters out the vast majority of contaminants.
Beyond that, you can choose a whole home filter. An advantage of these is that they also filter the water for your showers and baths, and in some cases even your hose water for the garden. Crystal Quest makes various models and extra filters based on your needs. These filters can go a long way in improving the quality of water that you drink.
Now, are you ready for the best choice in drinking water?
For the best possible water, which translates to the best improvements in health, mental performance, and longevity, you want to look for pure living spring water. Many people live near springs and don’t know it. If you have older parents or grandparents that live in your area, you can even ask them where there are springs. Often they will have gathered water there when they were children. You can also purchase living spring water.
Living spring water has many properties that factory bottled water does not. For example, most bottled water and tap water is considered “dead.” This is because the molecules are moving very slowly.
They have very weak charges since they are so heavily processed or contaminated by modern chemicals and machines. Living water, from a fresh, cold spring that naturally bubbles up from the Earth, is considered living. It’s bound only to organic minerals that are useful for the body, and the stronger, more active electrical charges on the molecules help to bring water through the cell membranes into the cells that desperately need hydration.
This living spring water has passed through many layers of rocks and crystals, and has been in nearly constant motion within the Earth, and is only presented above ground when it’s ready. The structure of the water itself has changed, having flowed through many helix shaped structures, as nature intended, in the same shape as our own DNA.
Living spring water is far more compatible with our bodies, providing the deepest hydrating and raising the amount of energy we can produce. You’ll find that your thinking is clearer and more creative, and you have a spring in your step, pun intended, that will carry you through your day.
Nature knows what’s best, you will be able to feel a clear difference, and science confirms this. This water that has been structured by the Earth has been studied by prominent researchers Dr. Gerald Pollack, Dr. Masaru Emoto, and Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp and most recently advanced by Dr. Carly Nuday.
These researchers have brought to light what many native people already know: that fresh spring water has an energy all its own that is far more compatible with health and long life than dead water from the tap.
Living water, for life!
