How to Live Longer and Feel Better

Your drinking water is ripe for opportunity to become an elixir for you to live longer and feel better.

If you’re drinking pure water you are missing out on minerals and that will age you!

Water should be your first source of nutrition; it carries oxygen and nutrition throughout your body in the form of blood, which is more than 90% water. Water enables our conscious state that depends entirely on being fully  hydrated, we breath because our lung tissue is at least 80% water and nearly every cell of your body is mostly water.

Make Your Drinking Water The Best Water

Why is it that so little attention is given to the quality of the water we drink?

While you may not have access to pristine spring water loaded with essential minerals, you can replace minerals found in natural spring water by simply adding natural sea salt or Himalayan Rock salt!

“Nearly all disease can be traced to a nutritional deficiency.”

Dr Linus Pauling, Two times Nobel Prize winner.

Long-term consumption of drinking purified (demineralised) water can cause serious health issues you need to be aware of.

To be healthy your body needs the minerals and trace elements that are missing in purified water.

Chronic disease
It Doesn’t Have to be Like This!

Symptoms of Mineral Deficiencies

If you are mineral deficient, it will become self-evident sooner or later.

Symptoms from mineral deficiencies happen slowly but progressively. Subtle warning signs will present in the early stages that are asking you to take notice of your body. The longer you ignore the signs the slower the road to recovery.

For example, some warning signs might begin with the odd cramp, regular headaches, constipation, hair loss, brittle or deformed nails, aches and pains in joints, dental decay etc.

Symptoms relate to specific mineral deficiencies.

Mineral Deficiencies Become Disease

Long-term consumption of drinking purified (demineralised) water will cause serious health issues.

To be healthy your body needs the minerals and trace elements that are missing in purified water.

If you are mineral deficient, it will become self-evident sooner or later.

Symptoms from mineral deficiencies happen slowly but progressively. Subtle warning signs will present in the early stages that are asking you to take notice of your body. The longer you ignore the signs the slower the road to recovery.

For example, some warning signs might begin with the odd cramp, regular headaches, constipation, hair loss, brittle or deformed nails, aches and pains in joints, dental decay etc.

Symptoms relate to specific mineral deficiencies.

Gradually the symptoms of a mineral deficiency[s] express more loudly and with progressively more discomfort (dis-ease) and always moving towards more serious and debilitating conditions that become chronic disease.

Unless the mineral deficiencies and lifestyle issues are addressed the dis-ease grows.

If you want to live longer and feel better you need to give your body what it needs.

Mineral Deficiencies Cause Physical Pain and Cognitive Impairment

Mineral deficiencies [electrolytes] can cause dehydration, which leads to cognitive impairments such as poor memory or ‘foggy’ head, unable to think clearly, hormonal and emotional imbalance and progressive neurological disorders similar to Parkinson’s.

Check with a health professional who understands how mineral deficiencies affect biochemistry.

Consider this:

* If you are mineral deficient in one mineral, you will be lacking in other minerals.

* When one or more minerals are missing other minerals that are codependent on the presence of those minerals won’t be active, For example, the uptake of iron for blood formation requires the presence of copper. 

Note: The recommended daily allowance is only a maintenance dose, whereas a ‘repair’ dose may be 2, 3 or more than a maintenance dose – check with a health professional who understands nutrition.

There Are 21 Priority Minerals

Called priority minerals because your body utilises these minerals in larger quantities than other minerals and involved in a greater number of metabolic processes than other minerals.

Minerals required in smaller quantities are referred to as trace elements; nonetheless, they are all essential.

You need more than just a few minerals!

All told, there are 80+ essential minerals and trace elements for physiological balance. All essential minerals function in synergistic relationships with other minerals known as co-factors e.g. to absorb Calcium, Magnesium needs to be present.

Demineralised Water is Dangerous For Your Health

If you want to live longer and feel better you must not rely on demineralised drinking water (Verma & Kushwaha, 2014).

Since the early 1960s, many studies have been compiled discussing the effects of long-term consumption of soft water (low in minerals) and Reverse Osmosis [RO] water that’s stripped of all essential minerals.

The studies show an increased risk of morbidity (depression), disease, and shortened life expectancy compared to populations who drink water with a high mineral content (hard water/spring water).

Throughout the developing and developed world, industrialisation has led to a decrease in mineral content in food and water. This fact correlates with more of illness that used to be predominant in older age groups but are now showing in younger age groups with more frequency. 

Early Childhood Development

Drinking demineralised water has far-reaching effects on the population including fetal development – the unborn child. (Moyle et al., 2013)

According to Ong (2005), it is because of mineral deficiencies such as Zinc, Iron, and Copper, that one-third of the world’s children fail to reach their full physical and mental potentials!

Deficiencies in Zinc, Copper, Iron, and Selenium will also cause higher vulnerability to infectious diseases.

Minerals, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Dementia

Our mineral reserves and the degree to which we are hydrated reduces with age.

Neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and dementia show a correlation to oxidative damage of brain tissue caused by magnesium deficiency.

Interestingly, elevating brain magnesium improves learning and memory (Slutsky I, Abumaria N, Wu L J, et al. 2010).

Maintaining the reservoir of minerals in the body is a preventative course of action to offset neurodegenerative diseases to live longer and feel better

WHO Says...

The World Health Organisation also states demineralised water affects peoples’ energy levels.

When RO treated water was introduced to Czech and Slovak populations as household tap water, a 2000-2002 study showed that even after a short time the reduction of Calcium and Magnesium in town water caused various health complaints such as cardiovascular disorders, tiredness, weakness, muscle cramps, and bradycardia (lower than regular heart rate) to increase. (Sahu & Thawani,2019, p.10)

What is the Best Good Drinking Water

Kožíšek (2003) stated distilled water while free of contaminates, concluded this type of water does not define good drinking water. In the chemical sense, good drinking water is a compound of various mineral substances and diffused gases that should be sources of essential minerals.

Over the years, the importance of mineral content in drinking water has been a source of much discussion in scientific communities. The German nutritionist R. Hauschka recommended adding sodium hydrogen sulfate to water before boiling it to preserve the dissolved calcium level and prevent loss of calcium due to precipitation (Hauschka, 1951). 

More recent studies confirm that drinking soft water (water low in calcium) could increase the incidence of bone fractures in children, neurodegenerative diseases e.g., multiple sclerosis, pregnancy complications, preterm birth, and cancer. (Verma & Kushwaha, 2014).

Drs Gerald Combs and Forrest Nielson of the USDA Human Nutrition Laboratory in Grand Forks, N.D. stated that a low magnesium intake reflected heart arrhythmia in postmenopausal women, lowered energy, and other effects. When Magnesium was increased to normal levels, symptoms were reversed. (Dr. Cotruvo,2006).

Substantial evidence confirms that when a person consistently drinks demineralised water, adverse health effects accumulate as the scope of mineral deficiencies increase.

Drinking demineralised water will never fully hydrate your body because this type of water lacks the required electrolytes (mineral compounds) to hydrate you and enable water to be an effective channel for the transmission of electrical impulses through our nervous system. 

Knowing what defines good water for good health means you can make your drinking water your elixir and preventative medicine simply by adding minerals in the form of natural Sea Salt or Himalayan Rock Salt to purified water.
