If You Want Good Health, Clean Water is Essential for Drinking, Showering and Watering the Vegetable Garden.

Most would agree that we can survive only a few days without water (under normal conditions) yet without food we can survive for much longer. So it makes sense to me that drinking water is top of the essential list, as far as staying healthy is concerned.

Drinking water is top of the essential list
From my own personal experience, I know that if I wake up in the morning feeling tired and lacking in motivation, the solution for me is to drink water – clean filtered water - three cups, 20 minutes apart. So within 40 minutes I know I will be feeling motivated, energetic, clear minded, and purposeful.

In fact, to promote healing we need to be drinking far more water than we think. When I drink 3 litres a day I feel so much better, and from my research I know that I can prevent many health issues simply by drinking this amount of water per day.

But would I be so happy to drink this amount of water if it were unfiltered water straight from the tap? No way! Apart from the fact that our town supply contains chlorine, heavy metals, and goodness knows what else, it also tastes not very nice, and this makes drinking less enjoyable. So if you don’t like the taste of your water, a solution would be to get it filtered.

Also if you find that you just can’t drink much water, then start with just a little and gradually increase. This is most important if you have toxins in your body which may be released as you drink more clean water.

Warning: If you have kidney problems, or suffer from water retention, follow your doctors advice before attempting to increase the amount of water you drink.

For the sake of our health, the quality of the water we drink is vital. It should have a pH level indicating slightly alkaline, and it should be free of toxins, heavy metals, chemicals, and bacterial pollutants.

Bacterial pollutants


Speaking of bacterial pollutants, the recent campylobacter outbreak caused by water pollution in Havelock North is still fresh on our minds for us in New Zealand. More than 5000 people were affected. Read more about this here:

Heavy Metals


Heavy metals can be present in water supplies, both in rural and urban areas. Heavy metals can have a long term damaging effect on our health. Here is an article about the effects of heavy metals.

Chlorine and Fluoride


Most town water supplies will have chemicals such as chlorine and fluoride present.
Here is an article titled “How does Chlorine in Water Affect My Health?
http://www.bioray.com/content/Chlorine.pdf


So what are we to do to get better quality water? Here are some suggestions I have listed.

1. Buy bottled water.
A friend of mine sent me this e-mail message recently:
“I have become very interested in sourcing and drinking non-fluoride, non-heavy metal and non-chloride water. For this cause, I stopped drinking tap water altogether and have budgeted some finance every week to buy non-type water above from stores, such as Countdown, PaknSave etc. I mainly buy PureDew water at $6.95 10L or I would get a friend to fill up my 10L containers at the public pure natural spring water tap in Tirau. I have noticed a big difference in my health. Thanks, Michael.”
I would add to this that we should also check out the nature of the plastic containers that we are using as there can be dangers in using plastics, especially when they are refilled for repeated use. Glass bottles are a good option to use, but where can you find water bottled in glass?

2. Look for clean water outlets and natural springs.
I’m not sure of all the local springs in the Waikato area, and definitely not sure how many springs are safe from contaminants these days – however it would be worth getting a sample tested.

Apart from the source at Tirau, mentioned above, I know of a place on the top of the Kaimai Range where people stop on the side of the road to fill up their water containers from a water spring outlet. Readers of this article may know of many more places where clean spring water is available.
Please leave a comment below.

3. Encourage your local council to provide chlorine free and fluoride free water.
Our Hamilton City Council has now provided two outlets, one at the Claudlands showground in the city, and one just out of Dinsdale. “Fluoride Free Hamilton and NZ facebook group has posted on their facebook page (29 September 2016) the story and pictures of these outlets in Hamilton.

4. Install a water filter.
There are so many types and sizes of water filters to choose from. It is worth doing the research to find out what suits your situation and budget. The options range from a filter jug, kitchen bench filter, to a whole house filter.
For many years I have used a kitchen bench filter which filtered out chlorine, fluoride and, to a large degree heavy metals from our drinking water.

Whole house water filter system
Then a friend asked me how I watered my (organic) garden with chlorine free water. I admitted that I was using the hose from the garden tap. It suddenly occurred to me that I was spraying my garden vegetables and soil with chlorinated water which would have been killing the good bacteria. No wonder there were very few worms in my garden!

I had also been showering in chlorinated water. What was that doing to the natural (good) bacteria on my skin? I soon decided to install a whole house filter system. I am finding that the worms are slowly coming back, and I feel much better about showering without the chlorine smell.

Here is a YouTube video which talks about the types of filters one might consider. The video is based in the US, so products discussed may not be suitable or available in New Zealand.

5. Check the pH of the water you drink.
For an accurate test, I am told that a swimming pool shop should have a meter which will test the pH of a sample of water. The water we drink should be slightly alkaline. (pH about 7.5). Acidic water can only be damaging to the body, and should be avoided if possible.

Here is a YouTube video (based in Australia) showing the pH testing of bottled water, tap water and from an alkalisation machine.

In New Zealand there is a company called Ionza, which sells products which perform the alkalisation of water. Products range from a filter jug to a sophisticated bench top machine. Check out their website they have a host of information for you to look at and many options to choose from:

Happy Healing!
