Water – What you Need to Know

Water is the basic building block of life. Most of our body consists of water, yet, most people do not drink enough water. My opinion as to the reason is that most water today, whether from the tap or a bottle, is not healthy.

How do I know this? Personal experience.

Back in 1995, I was really working on improving my health. I went to the gym, took supplements and started drinking a gallon of water per day. I thought I was safe because I had a carbon filter. Let me tell you, that was WRONG!

What I began to notice was a slow deterioration in my health. By the summer of 2005, a mere 10 years, I had high blood pressure, heart arrhythmia, a chronic skin fungus infection that kept coming back, cramping in my hands, feet and legs, low thyroid and failing vision. In addition, my kidneys had started aching.

When the kidneys started acting up, I went to my clinic and they did a urine test. I was told that I was too acid. However, they didn’t know what to do about it.  So, as near as I could tell, my kidneys were hurting because I was too acid but they couldn’t tell me now to fix it.

So, I started doing research. What I found out saved my life.

I will be forever grateful to Kevin Trudeau, the alternative health journalist because his information on acidity directed me to a site called, Never an Outbreak.  This site introduced me to the concept of alkalinity and had products that promoted alkalinity. This in turn led me to Sang Whang, the engineer who developed the Alkalife product. I also discovered the research of Dr. Young and Dr. Baroody. Their books are interesting although I don’t agree with the vegetarian lifestyle they advocate.  Mr. Whang has a much more practical lifestyle based on alkaline water.

With this information, I discovered that what I had done to improve my and my family’s health was actually harming us. You see, when I discovered that the water authority had started putting fluoride in the tap water in 1995. They didn’t put it to a vote, they simply held one public meeting that few people knew about. My chiropractor said he went down there and pleaded with them not to put this toxic substance in the water but they did anyway.

Notice the date? That’s exactly when I started increasing my water consumption. Consequently, I had hypothyroidism. A carbon filter doesn’t do much to cleanse the water. So I found out that Reverse Osmosis, RO, would take out the fluoride and other things as well. Thus, in October of 2004, I installed a system and the family and pets started on the “clean” water.

I had noticed on the directions that the RO company stated that the water was acid and that some people thought that was not a good thing but others said it didn’t matter. Let me tell you, IT DOES MATTER!

In about a years time, my health, my wife’s health and my pet’s health deteriorated. I had a sweet cat that died of throat swelling. The vet had never seen this before. But it was the RO water. How do I know? A friend with cats also installed an RO system and had a cat die of the same throat constriction. Even the Vet school at the University of Georgia could not identify the cause. But, it was ACIDITY.  That thing that most health authorities say doesn’t matter.

Every day, me, my family and pets were less healthy. One died. I still feel incredible sadness about that because I know it was the water.

Thank goodness for the clinic identifying the acid problem, even if they didn’t know how to fix it, and Kevin Trudeau for pointing me in the right direction.

The city where I live has the worst water in the entire United States. For safe consumption, it has to be treated with Reverse Osmosis. However, I discovered you can put the minerals back in as well as put drops to bring up the alkalinity.

Today, we all drink strong alkaline water balanced with calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium. I not longer have high blood pressure, heart arrhythmia, skin fungus, brittle finger nails, low body temp, etc. My wife no longer has gout which she suffered for many years.

I cannot imagine a health care professional claiming that alkaline water doesn’t make a difference. Me, my family and pets were the classic, double blind experiment. We were drinking acid water thinking it was healthy and our health deteriorated. We thought it was healthy because that is what we had been told. But, the results, sad results with the pets and the one cat in particular, told a different story.

When I started the alkaline water program, I didn’t know if it would help or not. All I knew is that I had to try something our I was going to die. It worked. Was it a placebo effect? No. You see, the pets health improved as well and now, they REFUSE to drink other types of water. They will actually go thirsty until they can get to the clean, remineralized, strong alkaline water. They instinctively know it is healthy for them.

I still drink a gallon of water per day. My special, strong alkaline water. No more hypothyroidism, high blood pressure, heart arrhythmia, cramps, etc. Even my eyes have improved that my glasses are too strong for me!

Will you have the same results? I can’t say. All I can say is that me, my family and the pets are healthier than we were in 2005. I hope you look into your water.
