With all the hard work people are doing to live healthier lives and make the best choices for their families, it can easily feel like the obstacles in our environment are increasingly working against us.
Great effort is being made to create healthier diets; buying locally produced foods, reduce processed foods and embrace whole foods diets. Even the public schools are considering healthier lunch programs for kids. Meanwhile, we have created a much more difficult situation for ourselves when our basic need for clean water is growing out of reach.
Water is an essential component to life. A healthy body is composed of 60-70% water and it is critical for every cell in the body to be able to function normally. Dehydration can result in fatigue, increased pain, heart irregularity, skin issues, temperature irregularity and neurological problems among other things. Generally, we need to consume at least half our body weight in fluid ounces each day in order to maintain our fluid levels.
For example, a 150lb person needs to drink at least 75 ounces of clean water each day.
Today, we have greater obstacles than just staying hydrated. Our water supplies are increasingly contaminated by chemical agents. In a recent article by the associated press, the presence of pharmaceutical drugs in city water systems has been found to be alarmingly high.
7 Ways to Improve Your Water:
I have been using and selling the Multipure water filtration in my home for almost 10 years. It is the most thoroughly studied filtration system in addition to being very affordable and far better environmentally than using bottled water. I recommend anyone living in an urban area and some in the rural regions as well utilize in home water filtration for cleaner water.
