Healthy Water versus Dead Water
Not all water hydrates cells and supports life functions equally. Healthy water can easily penetrate the cells and perform all of its functions. Dead water, on the other hand, must be reformed and revitalized by the body before it can do its job.
Doctors and researchers have determined that drinking healthy water improves health and longevity but drinking dead water allows cells to dehydrate.
Most of Us Drink Dead Water
Almost everything that man has done to water has destroyed or degraded it. We have contaminated nearly every natural water supply on earth with pollution, toxic waste and hundreds of thousands of chemicals.
There are over 120,000 types of chemicals in use today, with another 1,000 new ones added each year. All of these chemicals find their way into our water sources.
Water treatment plants use basic filtration and chlorine to remove microbes and contaminants from our polluted water. This process makes the water “safe”, because it kills most germs and bacteria, but it also destroys water’s life-giving properties.
Chlorine is not good for water because it has a strong ionic pull that easily distorts water’s healthful crystalline structure. It isn’t good for the body either. Chlorine has been associated with heart problems, cancer, and arteriosclerosis. Boiling water does not get rid of chlorine–it changes it into a carcinogen called trihalomethane. Another problem is that tap water tends to have an erratic pH (as low as 5.5 or as high as 10) which disturbs the body’s natural acid/alkaline balance of pH 7.35.
Keeping water in stagnant storage tanks and forcing it to travel through miles of pipes strip water of its natural energy and oxygen, disrupting the hexagonal clusters. By the time tap water reaches you, it is usually devoid of any healthful properties.
Many filters remove chlorine and heavy metals, but most still allow certain contaminants to pass through. Parasites like Cryptosporidium and Giardia are not killed by chlorine or UV light and may easily pass through simple carbon filters. Radioactive and volatile chemicals are also very hard to remove.
Distillation devices do a better job of getting rid of harmful substances than simple filters do, but they take everything else out of the water too — including beneficial minerals that are necessary for health and longevity.
Most bottled water is tap water that has been processed through a reverse osmosis or carbon filtration system. Some companies add minerals and in some (but not all) countries, if the label says “spring water” it might have actually come from a natural spring…but in all of these cases, the water is still processed and artificially contained for long periods of time.
