far I have extolled the virtues of proper eating habits and
the necessity of cleansing the body from accumulated toxins
and especially from the buildup of plaque-like matter on the
intestinal walls. I need to add one very crucial component
that otherwise is taken rather lightly by many people. The
most important substance on earth isp;WATER!
these points: Blood is 92% water. Mother's milk =85% water;
Juicy fruits & vegetables = 85% water. Indeed, our entire
body is about 67% water. If, therefore, we want to care properly
for our health and cleanse our digestive and eliminative system
and all internal organs, it certainly stands to reason that
the quality of liquids we consume every day is of great importance.
Americans still get their water from the public water supply.
The government is usually very hesitant to make citizens aware
of the many problems existing with the quality of public drinking
water so as not to create a panic, however please consider
a couple of news items:
U.S. Public Health Service conducted a study during the late
1980's and concluded that pregnant women who drink or bathe
in chlorinated tap water contaminated with commonly occurring
organic chemicals run a slightly greater risk of bearing babies
that are small, premature or afflicted with certain congenital
defects. The study stated in part: "Various chlorination by-products
formed by toxic wastes leaching into water also increased
birth defects, including cleft palate and lip, by up to 3-1/2
times the normal rate."
Clifford Dennison, a professor and expert in water purification
technologies, stated in one of his publications that by using
a chlorine testing kit, he found that the chlorine level in
his home's tap water is invariably higher than is recommended
for his swimming pool. In other words, tap water may be drinkable,
just don't swim in it! A couple of years ago, Columbus city
water users were notified that less than ninety percent (90%)
of the samples taken showed lead levels below EPA safety standards.
Since more than the acceptable levels of lead were indicated,
information regarding lead in drinking water had to be provided
to the public.
EPA reports that 22% of large US systems exceed acceptable
lead action levels. Most of these offending systems are
in the Midwest, Northeast and Northwest.
California 46 large systems failed to monitor;
NY, 38% samples were above the action lead level.
Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta has advised that
people with compromised immune systems should not use tap
water because of the harmful microorganisms present in it.
the one hand, many say that there is no reason to be alarmed
since there is no epidemic of diseases traced to tap water,
on the other hand, we need to be aware that degenerative diseases
in general are the result of unhealthy practices over a long
period of time.
people think of water as something that quenches their thirst;
case closed. I hope you can see how crucial water is from
these three viewpoints:
Do you wash your car in a muddy river, or wash your hair (pardon
me) in the toilet? Of course not. Water, acting as a solvent,
reaches into every cell to absorb and carry away the poisons
that are formed as a part of the life process. This cleansing
process cannot function properly when the water itself is
polluted. The average person's kidney filters about 400 gallons
of blood a day. It's rather common sense that we can greatly
aid this process by consuming pure water.
Water helps transport substances in the body. As a solvent,
water helps prepare substances for transport across cell membranes
and for distribution throughout the body by way of the circulatory
and lymph systems. When the water is filled with contaminants,
its ability to dissolve bodily substances is impaired.
3) Water keeps body chemistry regulated and functioning properly.
Without enzymes and trace minerals, the metabolic activities
in the body cannot take place. Contaminants in the drinking
water will interfere with these crucial processes. In addition,
water is important in regulating body temperature.
then is pure water?
are several ways to achieve water purification with different
degrees of success. I have found that nothing can compare
with steam distillation. Water is heated to the point where
it evaporates. The steam is then cooled down and collected
in an appropriate container. It actually is slightly more
complicated than that. Last year I installed a very large
distillation plant in one of my health food stores so my customers
have access to the best and freshest distilled water available
anywhere. The water goes actually through a half dozen processing
cycles before it is finally available to the consumer.
me answer one question that usually comes up when people hear
that drinking distilled water is best for the health. What
about the minerals in tap water? Don't we need them for better
health, and doesn't distilled water actually leech minerals
from the body? The answer is absolutely NO! Of course we need
minerals for good health but not the inorganic minerals that
are present in tap water. We get minerals from the food we
eat. Plants have the unique ability to convert inorganic minerals
absorbed from the soil and water into organic forms our bodies
can use. The minerals contained in water actually hinder water
from fulfilling its proper role. Clean, distilled water enters
your system clean and is therefore free to absorb and wash
away the poisons your system generates and the poisons that
HSU & CO. we produce our own distilled water with a state
of the art water distillation plant.
reason why my Internal Cleansing Program is so successful
is because I emphasize steam distilled water. If you get tired
of carrying heavy water bottles from the store every other
day, then invest in a good home distillation unit, not just
a carbon filter that you attach to the faucet. Don't expect
miracles overnight if you are suffering from some degenerative
condition. Yet, there are so many case histories of people
who have enjoyed success in alleviating or overcoming a variety
of health problems when they began drinking STEAM DISTILLED
WATER exclusively. Even fruit juices cannot replace distilled
water in a health recovery or maintenance program. So try
your best to wean yourself from sodas, coffee, regular teas
and other liquids containing a lot of sugar, caffeine, preservatives
and other harmful substances. Believe me, your body will thank
you and you will be able to tell the difference in your daily
