Do you have a drinking problem?

I hope you enjoyed Mother’s Day. I had a beautiful day. My daughter, Michelle, and my adorable grandson slept over on Saturday night so Michelle and I both got breakfast in bed on Sunday morning. My son and his girlfriend spent the afternoon with us, which was lovely and my husband cooked up a big pot of soup. What more could a mother want?

It was really nice to have the weekend off after the busyness of the last few weeks leading up to our very successful Forgotten Secrets of Health Seminar last Saturday. We do have quite a few more big things coming up, like the next Light Dynamics Course this coming weekend, Stress to Serenity starting next Monday (which is ideal for stressed VCE students) and Anthony Kilner, author and Psychic Medium at our Kindred Spirits meeting this Thursday, so watch your inbox for some separate emails about them.

Now, don’t be too concerned about the title of this email. I’m actually referring to drinking water. As the weather gets colder it’s easy to forget to keep up your water intake. Most people don’t drink enough water even through the summer, and even less in winter, so I thought it might be a good idea to talk about the importance of staying hydrated throughout the whole year.

There are a couple of things to keep in mind regarding water. One is the quantity of the water you drink and the other is the quality.

It’s recommended that you drink 30 mls of water for every kilo that you weigh. If you’re 60 kilos that means 1.8 litres, if you’re 100 kilos then its 3 litres. It may seem like a lot but our bodies need that amount of water just to stay hydrated. Our brain actually needs water more than the rest of the body and it will be given priority at the expense of other organs. Water transports nutrients throughout the body and it also washes away toxins.

As you know every cell in your body needs nutrients to stay healthy. You may not realise however, how important it is to cleanse the toxic waste that’s produced by each cell. Years ago I heard about a laboratory that had kept human cells alive and unchanged for over 20 years. The cells were nourished and flushed with clean water twice a day.

One morning the cells were dead. Apparently the lab technician had forgotten to flush the cells the day before and the toxic waste that was produced by them had poisoned them. In reality your body is like a bag of cells. Fifty to 80 trillion of them.

When you think about it, 30mls of water isn’t very much to flush out 1 kilo of your body’s tissue every day. According to Dr F Batamanghelidj, author of “Your Body’s Many Cries for Water, you’re not sick you’re thirsty,” most diseases are due to chronic dehydration. Are you feeling thirsty yet?

The other issue with water is the quality. If you don’t drink enough water that may be because you’re body doesn’t like the quality of the water you have access to. If you’re drinking unfiltered tap water or bottled water that has been stored in plastic then the body intuitively knows that’s not so good for you.

I’ve muscle tested many people over the past few years and found that when they hold tap water in their mouth they test “weak” and when they hold the water from one of our filters in their mouth they test “strong”. Although we need to stay hydrated the fluoride and chlorine (among other things) in tap water are quite toxic to our bodies.

There are a few things about fluoride and chlorine that are good to know…
• 37 out of 43 studies show that fluoride lowers the IQ of children
• Fluoride was used as a treatment to lower thyroid function
• Fluoride calcifies in the pineal gland making you less intuitive
• 97% of Western Europe has rejected putting fluoride in the water supply
• An unprecedented number of US states are rejecting fluoride
• Chlorine kills the bacteria in our water supply but it also kills the good bugs in our digestive system
• Cancer risk among people drinking chlorinated water is 93% higher than among those whose water does not contain chlorine. – U.S. Council Of Environmental Quality

I could go on but the thing is…. Are you drinking enough water? And is it good quality water?
I’ve learned that Water Filters need to do 4 things:
1. Filter out the impurities and chemicals
2. Put back the beneficial minerals
3. Alkalise the water
4. Ionize the water (so it tastes creamy and is easily absorbed)
I’m afraid that cheap filters (like the ones you buy in the supemarket), boiling or distilling water or buying bottled water are not enough.

If you don’t have a good quality water filter then take a look at the range we have in our store at Tunstall Square or from our online shop. I’m currently offering a 10% discount on all our Water Filters to help you stay healthy through autumn and winter. And remember you can always drink a cup of warm filtered water instead of your usual cuppa. One of our favourite customers calls it “Silver Tea.”

Go to to explore our recommended Water Filters. As one of our valued customers you can use Promo Code WATER to receive your 10% discount. This offer is valid til May 31st.
