Water

“We forget that the water cycle and the life cycle are one.” – Jacques Cousteau

The human body is 70% water, so it only makes sense to think about the quality of the water that we consume. Do you want to be 70% pure and clean, or 70% chemicals and toxins? The choice seems obvious, yet many of us never stop to consider the water we so often drink, cook and bathe in.

What does the water you drink taste like? If you’ve never really noticed, give it a try the next time you take a sip. You’ll find that not all waters are created equal: there’s a big difference between water that smells like a swimming pool and water that tastes fresh and full of minerals. Yes, like food, water contains nutrition in the form of naturally occurring minerals.

Our planet is also mostly water. As the flow of rivers and streams helps the Earth to regulate itself, so our water helps us by supplying the substance for our bodily fluids and by carrying away our waste. Proper hydration with quality water enhances all of these functions, allowing your body to be at its best.

So which water should you drink?  You have 2 choices:

– You can buy excellent bottled waters, though at great environmental cost: due to packaging and shipping, the plastic that surrounds most bottled waters is made from petroleum. Glacial or spring water is ideal.

– Or, you can install a home water filter, which, over time, will deliver huge savings over bought water, while also giving you peace of mind. Having spent many years researching and using a variety of different brands, I would be happy to help you make informed decisions about a home water filter that will fit your budget. In addition to vastly improving the quality and taste of your tap water, a home filter can also purify the water you cook with, and the water you bathe in. When you soak in the tub or take a shower, you shouldn’t have to soak up chlorine and fluoride.

I can also help you to understand how drinking water best fits into your wellness practice, including the type of water, the times of day, and the optimal temperature at which to drink it.  My goal is to share with you the in-depth knowledge I have gleaned over 30 years about how to consciously consume this precious resource.
