Is All Water OK to Drink?
Now that I’ve been posting for a few months, I’d really like to know what you’d like to talk about. Beauty and wellness are at the heart of what I do, but I care about a myriad of other things as well. What interests you? What do you want to know more about? I have a team of researchers and experts at my disposal so let’s get to the heart of you.
Last week we learned about how much water we needed to drink on a daily basis. For those of you who missed it, the answer was half of your body weight in ounces. So, if you weigh 130 pounds, you should drink 65 ounces of water a day. Remember, the water can also come from the liquids from organic fruits and vegetables. The important thing is that the water be as pure as possible and not be loaded down with any type of sweetener or salt-laden additives, If it tastes like squirt-able Kool-Aid, it’s a big, “No!” If you need a little something extra in your water, squeeze in a fresh, organic lemon, lime or orange; or, steep in a few mint leaves, cucumbers or apples.
Drinking water at night can help keep blood pressure under control and some research suggests it can help prevent against heart and stroke issues while you sleep.
Another important fact is not to drink bottled water that has been sitting in the hot sun or car. Heated plastic can “leech” into the water and cause real health issues like cancer.
If you have (amalgam) silver tooth fillings, be sure to add a few extra ounces of water to your intake, daily. It’s important to know that 50% of an amalgam fillings are composed of mercury, a heavy metal and neurotoxin to the body. The toxic effect of mercury can also cause respiratory illness, bronchitis, fever, kidney damage, slight memory loss and headaches; and, the effects of having mercury compounds chronically delivered into the body are far more significant. Chronic exposure can lead to serious health ailments, such as damage to your central nervous system, effecting motor functions and cognitive processes, skin disease, an increase in blood pressure and tachycardia. Flushing your kidneys of toxins has never been more important than it is today.
