Imagine that every time you turned on the faucet, you got a big cup of “Barbie hair”?
I know it sounds weird… but for a majority of households, this is a real issue.
Living in Arizona, hydration is a necessity. I can’t tell you how many times medical helicopters have rescued hikers from the hiking trails outside my home. Novice hikers don’t anticipate the severity of the heat and end up collapsing due to dehydration.
At least 70 % of the human body is composed of water. It is necessary in the function of every cell in the body. Water regulates our temperature through sweat, acts as a highway for nutrients, and removes waste and toxins in the body. It’s such a simple concept, but many of my patients just don’t drink enough!
For quick hydration, you might fill a big glass with H20 from the tap, but before you take that first gulp, consider this….
In an independent study of tap water, researchers found that nearly 97% of American faucets are pumping out plastic fibers with the water you bathe in, cook with, and serve to your family.
Bottled water was no better. 93% of water bottles showed some signs of microplastic contamination. Moreover, the discarded plastic makes its way into landfills and waterways, or litter the streets.
If you do drink bottled water often, please make sure you are drinking Mountain Valley Spring Water which at least comes in a glass bottle.
The Science and Research:
We are living in a plastic world. Plastics are also called “endocrine disruptors” by medical professionals. These are compounds or chemicals which can interfere with endocrine (or hormonal) systems in our bodies.
Plastics interfere with the synthesis, secretion, transport, binding, action, or elimination of natural hormones in the body that are responsible for development, behavior, fertility, and maintenance of homeostasis (normal cell metabolism).
Exposure to endocrine disruptors have been linked to:
- mammary and prostate cancers
- reproductive problems
- early puberty
- neurological problems
I personally saw the devastation plastics especially from water bottle cause for our friends the turtles while I was down in Key West last month. I visited the Turtle Hospital and was brought to tears by the turtles who are severely harmed by ingesting the plastics floating in our waters. I made a commitment then and there to drink out of my water filtration system to the best of my ability exclusively and to fill glass bottles when venturing outside my home.
I have also seen way too many times in my patients that plastics will interact with their estrogen receptors to cause earlier menopause and alter metabolism in postmenopausal women. Plastics along with poor diet can be a part of making you feel fat and low vibrational. The body heals better when it is happier, and proper hydration makes your body smile.
In order to achieve your RED life you must take hydration seriously and you must consider the water source you are drinking from. Remember – It’s super sexy to hydrated!
The Best Option for Water Filtration:
I highly recommend as a seeker of health that you put the quality of your drinking water at the top of your to do list. Investing in pure, clean, safe, and the most life-enhancing water is not a luxury it’s a necessity.
What an amazing way to celebrate Earth day by lessening the plastic load on Mother Earth and enhancing the quality of your own health.
I encourage you to checkout my go to filtration system, Spring Aqua. At this link you can watch videos and get educated on why this is the system I use for myself and my family. As soon as my granddaughter was born -I had one installed for her in my kids home. This is an investment that will end up paying for itself when you no longer need to buy bottled water. And my rep, Kenny, is super knowledgable and helpful and available to all of you for any questions or needs you may have.
Here are my favorite benefits of this system & why I have it in my own home!
For Starters when you purchase this system specific filters for your area will be installed under your sink to make sure that all the toxins present in your local water supply are being filtered out!
The benefits of hydrogen water
Molecular hydrogen is gaining significant attention from academic researchers, medical doctors, and physicians around the world, including me, for its recently reported therapeutic potential. Drinking 1L of hydrogen water per day (0.5 mg -1.6 mg) may have similar antioxidant effects as consuming 750 + bananas or 35 + large carrots or 4 + bags of spinach.
Get the minerals your body needs
Maifan Stone is a special mineral rock used in Chinese medicine to treat various skin diseases. It is composed of minerals including but not limited to plagioclase feldspar, orthoclase feldspar, hornblende, and biotite (all four mentioned before are silicate minerals). Maifan Stone contains plenty of micro-nutrient elements, such as calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, copper, and selenium, all essential to a healthy human body. Spring Aqua maifanite stone mineral is purified at over 1000°C to remove the impurities therefore leaving behind pure crystals of the mineral.
Spring Aqua has two types of water. Normal drinking and cooking water of 7.4 pH (+/-0.4) and alkaline drinking water at 9.0 pH (+/-0.5).
Enhanced hydration and absorption with micro clustering
Water molecules are measured in clusters rather than a single molecule. Many people have experienced being very bloated after drinking a few glasses of tap or bottled water. Spring Aqua water is light, smooth, and easy to absorb; therefore, feeling bloated is not a concern.
Other facts I love about this system!
- No more plastic water bottles
- Convenient in home system under the kitchen sink
- Medical grade stainless steel faucet.
- No Electricity
- System designed to provide consistent water quality with warranty up to 15 years.
