Waking Up To A Better Understanding Of The Water We Drink

Who hasn't heard of Dr. Oz? He is one of the most watched, and listened to, complementary medical experts in America today. Just look up the man's credentials on 'Wikipedia'. He is one among many health specialists joining the cause in raising awareness about the invisible contamination hidden in source tap water.

So many people feel comfortable in the not knowing. They don't want to know the facts for fear of finding out something that will cause them to feel anything but relief. Others welcome the understanding and see it as a positive step forward in taking individual control with action for themselves. Dr. Oz has a way with getting the information out. Take a few minutes to watch this 3 part video series of "Is Your Water Causing Cancer". Hint: you will have to scroll the page down a little to find the links to part 2 & 3.

Waking up to a better understanding to what we know, and don't know, about the water we drink is finding home-based source solution systems. These systems need to be affordable, cost efficient to maintain, and simplistic in design.

Why bother?

Because, until a lot more people become concerned about tap and bottled water contamination, and take it in a direction that makes you feel better about it, your only option is to filter tap water yourself.

You must also be aware that others will try to divert your attention away from the need for a massive clean-up movement. Why?

It is only my thoughts, but I think it's because a lot of people think it will slow economic recovery down, by restricting where the by-products of manufactured wastes can, or can not be dumped. Nobody seems to know what the safest way is. What are they going to do with all that unwanted stuff when they are done with it?

Facebook Status Chain Message Posting

Lately, I've noticed several people on my Facebook friends list posting a certain chain message as their status. I applaud their well meaning intentions. I know that through their eyes this seems like a good thing to do. It makes them feel better to post it.

The message has something to do with remembering a loved ones current battle, or lost fight against cancer. The message also mentions something about the individual's wish for a cure for the disease in 2011.

It got me to thinking why I didn't feel good about wanting to post something like this on my status. The first thing I thought of was, that I really did not want to remember a loved ones battle against the disease at all. The memories of their unhappiness in not being healthy and well is enough to keep us all apart from the cure that is already here.

I do believe people cure themselves of cancer, and many other unwell conditions every single day. There are many success stories, you just have to look around for them. If you keep looking for evidence of that on The American Cancer Society's web page, or The American Medical Association's web page, you probably aren't going to find it on either one.

But, there is evidence that there are doctors taking cancer cures places it has never been before. If you think differently about where to find evidence, you will find positive information to back up your thinking about it.

Many conventionally trained doctors are beginning to recognize the power of positive attitudes towards healing diseases of all kinds. Some are even encouraging lifestyle habit changes to help get the ball rolling. If your doctor does not, then ask for one that will recommend things like dietary changes, yoga or meditation. Does not matter what it is, as long as it helps the patient feel good about what they are doing to help themselves.

All of these things are relevant to inducing positive feelings. All of it matters.

How about a cleaner source of daily drinking water? Clean, meaning as free of as many unwanted contaminants as humanly possible at this time.

How about a drinking water that is loaded with more antioxidant power than food? This is due to a filter that can control excessive (good and bad) minerals in you tap water, while infusing your source water with just the right amount of beneficial minerals your tap water may not naturally have?

What about a source of drinking water that tumbles downward through a filter in a swirling 'vortex' like motion, creating a smaller molecule structured water that penetrates every thirsty cell and tissue throughout your body more efficiently? It also gives you more energy by adding more oxygen to your blood.

If you buy bottled water, how much does it cost you a year? That probably depends on the brand or service you use.

This little home system is extremely cost efficient in comparison. In some cases it may actually save on household expense. If you are having health issues, it may save you a lot more! What are you paying out of pocket for your health now? What will you be paying for it in the future?

What Feels Better Game

There is a little game I like to play with people when I can see how really mean they are being to themselves. It's called that tug-of-war game when battling it out for dominance in the "I'm right" about it all, that unwittingly turns out to work against them. It's a silly children's game that we've all played with someone, or a group, at one time or another.

Now, back to that other little silly game I like to play with others when I can see how their excuses are holding them apart from letting in a lot of good stuff. I call it the 'what feels better' to you game.

I'm just going to throw out some abstract statements. Pick the one that feels better to you.

(a) There is not going to be enough money in the world to help all the sick people get
(b) There is plenty of money in the world and sick people get well everyday.

(c) I know a lot of people who need prescription drugs to live a normal life.
(d) I see people for who they really are, not the illness that they have been labeled
as having.

(e) I've heard about stress being the root cause of all diseases, but I don't know how
lower my stress levels.
(f) Paying attention to my emotional reactions to uncontrollable situations helps me
manage my stress levels better.

I guess you can tell that I'm just playing around here. I don't necessarily have anything important to say, other than 'lighten up'. Life gets up in our face sometimes, and we always have a choice in how we react to it.

Emotions are the end result of the constant thought process that is going on inside our heads. These thought processes that equal our emotions are very powerful, and they have the potential to be lethal. Literally. That is something that most people do not fully understand, much less the health and wellness field. Alternative health vs. conventional health, both are pitted in a war against one another to claim dominance for 'who's right' about it all.

I tend to think that both camps are missing the boat. Logically speaking, and it is only my opinion, that neither one has a clue what water is capable of.

Now, let's play that little feel better game again.

Conventional medicine is saying you have a pharmaceutical shortage, and must be replenished with drugs.

Nutritional medicine says replenish your antioxidant shortage with a truck load of raw organic foods, and nutritional based supplements.

Both methods are very time consuming, and both cost a lot more money to use than water. Antioxidants delivered through water? Well, if that don't beat anything I've ever heard.

Which of those 3 statements feels better to you?

Back to the game:

I've listened to reports about all the drugs, industrial chemicals and sewage run off that's made its way into our tap water. Even bottled water is not considered safe.

I can filter my own tap water at home. It costs way less to do now than I've ever known about before.

Which of those 2 statements feels better to you? I think you've gotten the drift of my message.

The Next Most Wanted Household Appliance

I know, there always seems to be an endless stream of great new electrical appliance upgrades for the home. All of which are vying for your attention in slick marketing ad campaigns. It really is hard to determine which one of those new and shinny, electrical gadgets would serve your needs the best, isn't it?

Obviously, a lot of non-useful choices are made everyday. Otherwise, you would not be able to get such great deals at neighborhood garage sales, or on E-Bay, right?
With that thought in mind, I'm just going to get right down to why I believe the next most wanted household appliance of the next generation is going to be a water ionizer.

It has to do with the tremendous usefulness of 'ionized' water in itself, for anyone who has medical health issues. How many people do you know of, who have been taking maintenance doses of medications for years? You can spend a lot of time (and I mean a whole lot of time) 'Google ' searching the internet on the health benefits associated with drinking it. Of course if you are a skeptical sort of person, you will also be able to find some evidence from various sources to back up your suspicions. All-in-all though, I believe you will find more supportive evidence in favor of it than not.

Now it gets a little complicated, because there are just too many choices of electric water ionizers out there. Keep in mind that this creative, although high priced, water invention does work. There are simply too many people that have tried it, and loved what it does for them, to dispute the thousands of health improvement testimonials. And, there are many reputable brands to choose from, that do work. You can find out a lot of discriminating information about the different brands of electric water ionizers by visiting the blog site of Rob Thomas. The blog site of another up-front friend of mine is Gabe Hunninghake. Just ask them all the questions you can think of, they will take the time to answer you! Because their only motivation is to see more people getting the health benefits of this water.

Wish I would have found both of them when I started out. Hey, there are never any mistakes, only what you learn from them.

Seriously, if a thirty year old invention is ever going to become a mainstream household appliance, it is going to have to be comparable in price to that of other household appliances, right? The only difference being what extra bells-and-whistles you choose to spend your money on.

This is not an impossible idea anymore, and this little non-electric water filter canister will help it become a common appliance real soon. Some day you may be able to go to Wal-Mart and buy one of these things right off the shelf for half the price it is selling for today. Who knows, that may actually happen.

But until then, people will already recognize the ionizer is just as useful as a washing machine is at cleaning up dirty laundry. Only this thing will mop up the dirty acid build-up mess inside of them.
