Purified Water for Showering?

Posted by healthylivingtoday on February 17, 2008

So we have done the Master Cleanse and are feeling better than we have since we were kids – now how do we keep this wonderful feeling of health and not get toxic again?

Obviously, we need to keep on top of what we are putting into our bodies. The more organic fruits & vegetables and high-fiber foods the better. We need to do what we can to keep our stress level as low as possible (yeah right!). Stay away from over-processed food and toxic chemicals whenever possible. Okay – we can do that – as long as we are aware of the chemicals. But what about the chemicals that we may not even realize we are being exposed to?

The air we breathe and the water supplied to our homes is suspect, although much improvement has been made over the last 20 years or so. We are definitely more conscious of the quality of water we drink. At home most of us drink treated/filtered water, and when we travel, we drink bottled water. But what about the water used in the stalls and restaurants when we order cold drinks or even fruit juices? Do they use tap water, bottled/treated water or boiled water? If we order hot drinks, we can at least assume that the water is boiled first.

And what about the water we bathe and shower with? Remember that the skin is the largest organ and it absorbs some of the water and whatever contaminants we “wash” it with. Not only that, but the heat from the shower turns the chemicals into vapors that we also breathe in – chlorine, pesticides, herbicides and whatever else is in the water. It would be great if every home could have an water treatment system that ensures the entire household water supply is clean. This not always being possible,
the use of a filter in the shower
and for the water we drink and cook with is a step in the right direction.

  1. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to
    see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
