With over 84,000 toxic chemicals, viruses and bacteria in our environment, staying healthy is tougher than ever. Just 100 years ago, most of the chemicals used today did not exist.
They are in the air, our food and the water we drink and bathe in. On average, every man walks out his door with over 200 chemicals on or in his body and women with over 400 before they start the work day!
Today, over 4,000 known chemicals exist in our drinking water alone, with new chemicals showing up all the time. We just will not know all the affects of these chemicals until years down the road.
The average consumer is unaware of the poisons we all are consuming daily, I know I did not. I was buying organic food, bottled water and vitamins, trying everything to stay healthy. I listened to credible doctors, read books, went to seminars, worked in three U.S. hospital, and woke up one day only to find I had been wasting my money.
Most fresh foods are treated with pesticides with oil-based petroleum that does not wash off, even foods labeled organic. Organic growers can use pesticides, they just must be on the outside of the food not put on the soil.
Your body is working extremely hard every day of your life with quadrillions of processes going on 24/7. When all the systems do not function optimally, the whole body begins to break down and fall apart, system by system. The right fuel is critical.
Clean water is your body’s best defense.
I’ve been on a mission to teach people what I have learned about staying healthy in today’s overburdened toxic world. There are simple things you can do to stay well, slow down aging and change the quality and the quantity of your life.
We all must become wise consumers. We are what we eat and drink. Today, doctors say our children’s health will be worse than ours due to a lifetime of drinking water and nutrient-deficient food laden with chemicals.
Start today by drinking clean water.
I like what Deepak Chopra says: “The definition of health is returning to wholeness. If you take care of your well-being, you have contributed to the well-being of the world.”
