If you want the Best Health, you definitely want the Best Water.
Knowing how to choose a water filter can be confusing, so we broke it down for you.
Despite the desire to easily dismiss what we don’t understand, water is much more complex than most people realize. It’s not just H20, but a widely varying, vital solution of chemical, mineral, ionic, and energetic qualities. Many researchers have devoted decades to studying it’s highly unique qualities.
Most health conscious people already know that city tap water is full of all kinds of contaminants you do not want in your body, including chemicals, pharmaceuticals, hormones, chlorine, fluoride, etc.
The best water to drink is “wild water”, that is natural spring water straight from the source. This is naturally filtered, naturally mineralized, and has most likely never been contaminated by modern chemicals and pollutants. There are also more esoteric properties we discuss below.
Look for a good source of spring water at FindaSpring.com. If you can’t find a source near you, or prefer to not hassle with collecting it yourself, then there are some great alternatives. Besides drinking water, you also want to consider the quality of water you soak in.
“Get a Filter or Become a Filter”
Here are the bullet points of what we’ve learned through our extensive research…
Did you know you can absorb as many toxins taking 1 shower as an entire week of drinking straight tap water?
You absorb some of this through your skin, but most of it is absorbed through your lungs by the steam that’s created.
The real issue is that your liver isn’t helping filter these toxins coming through your skin and lungs. It’s wise to consider using a shower filter to avoid this.
Some filters utilizevitamin C to effectively neutralize chemicals like chlorine. The one I use (Propur) uses a variety of media to even filter out Fluoride (a challenging but important chemical to remove).
This Shower Filter Even Removes Fluoride!
Eliminate the potentially highest source of chlorine contamination (through the skin and lungs)
Makes water feel softer, which makes hair feel softer
Initial cost, but very much worth it (so no real down-side)
Reverse Osmosis Water Filter Systems – R.O. (APEC) –
From our research, a reverse osmosis system is one of the best at removing multiple contaminants (the APEC even filters out fluoride), but because they are so effective, the water must be re-mineralized for maximum health benefits. This can be easily done by simply adding a teaspoon of Himalayan, or Sea Salt per gallon of water. Adding Ormus would be another great option.
Excellent Filtration through multi-stage systems
Easy to add specific types of filter elements depending on your specific issues.
Easy use once installed
One of the most popular filter methods used
Will leach minerals from the body if not re-mineralized first.
Filter cartridges need replaced every 6 months to a year depending on water quality
Installation can be time consuming, and requires some skill
Wastes some water as it purifies.
Carbon Block Water Filters (No to MultiPure)
We no longer recommend the Multipure Brand filters for multiple reasons.
In the one we had purchased, the rubber o-ring that performs the function of the seal between the two halves of the filter had some sort of defect. This caused severe damage to our kitchen and thousands of dollars of damage. They refused to cover any of the cost.
In addition, their company’s lawyers actually complained we used their name and images on this site to promote their product! This is not the type of company we wish to see have any future. We recommend you look elsewhere.
Gravity fed filters like the Berkey are the ultimate survivalist filter because you can easily pour water in, and it will work anywhere without power. They do take some time to filter, but some believe it does a better job because the water is not being pushed through the filter.
Very Portable since it’s not attached to hoses.
Will work anywhere without power (great for “preppers“)
Good Filtration of chemicals and harmful organisms, fluoride filtering option
Less costly than many under-sink or inline counter-top systems
Need to refill top reservoir often
Long wait if you forget to keep the top half filled with water to be filtered
Our bodies thrive with a pH of around 7.2-7.4, which is more alkaline than acidic. Most people when tested are much too acidic. Our cells don’t function properly when in an acidic environment. When they don’t function optimally, our health, thinking, moods, and longevity are negatively affected.
Water Ionizers will help filter out contaminates and ionize the water to become more alkaline. Drinking alkaline water will help our body’s environment to be more alkaline.
Some of the BEST REVIEWED are the Life Ionizers and Air Water Life at a much lower cost than more expensive brands with heavy marketing.
Great filtering on quality models
No or few replacement cartridges required
Increases alkalinity of water and thereby your cells to a more optimal state
Automated push button design
Some models have distilling option for occasional health-benefit use
Initial expense (may be less over time)
Poor quality Ionizers can make things worse if water isn’t of high quality
Water distillers look similar to a coffee pot, but clean the water by using a steam process (some utilize filters as well). Many people love to drink distilled water because it may be the purest available with an important caveat… Distilled water is great for health cleanses and short term drinking because of it’s ability to pull impurities out of your tissues and body fluids. Distilled water is devoid of minerals, so it leaches them from your body. This makes it excellent for cleansing, but not for everyday use.
Strips all minerals and contaminates from drinking water
Great for occasional cleanses
Can strip your body of essential minerals with consistent use
Water is devoid of healthy minerals, essentially a “dead” water
Watch this fascinating documentary on some of the secrets of water…
Spring water naturally rises to the surface (some believe by forces of levitation acting on monatomic elements). Furthermore, structuring the water is naturally done through the fluid dynamics of vorticular spin. This, of course, is the way water naturally moves, and not through straight lines and 90 degree elbows.
Water Vortexers are something you won’t hear much about unless you really dig deep into the research on water.
Cynics will want to dismiss this because they don’t understand this different model of science. The science is very extensive, but built upon a fundamentally different model of Physics that can explain anomalies that traditional Physics can not.
Water Vortexers like the this one restore the natural health, structure and vitality of water. A powerful vortexing action causes implosion in the water, allowing the natural pH balance to be restored to your water.
Whether your water is too alkaline or too acidic, it will be brought to a natural pH balance. Furthermore, this will also drop many of the contaminates like chlorine from the water and make your water more absorbable into your cells by reducing the surface tension of the molecules.
You’ll notice both the taste and feel of your water will improve.
Makes water “alive” again through implosion and vortexing
Much healthier water for drinking and bathing
Can help with chlorine and other contaminants
Improve your health through something you’ll use everyday
Requires open-minded discovery and research to understand how they work
Initial Expense (although there are no parts to wear out)
Knowing how to choose a water filter is one thing, but you must regularly use one to get the benefits. It’s also important not to stress-out about any of this. It’s better to drink unpurified water than to be dehydrated.
All the little things you do to practice healthy living add up and make a difference on the health you experience.
