Regular or Decaf? Keep The Caffeine…The Chemicals in Decaf Just Might Kill You!

Image result for cup of coffee images

Altering the state of the natural always comes with consequences.  From taking the fat out of milk to removing the caffeine from a coffee bean, the process behind altering the natural state (and sometimes the chemicals used to accomplish it) might surprise you!

I’m a serious coffee drinker.  I don’t drink gallons of coffee a day, but the few cups that I drink each day are one of my life’s greatest pleasures. A hot cup of coffee doesn’t just satisfy my taste buds, it conjures up a whole lot of memories of times spent with loved ones over a good cup of coffee.  It’s my “comfort food.”

I don’t load my coffee up with artificial flavors and I don’t buy coffee concoctions that I can’t even pronounce.  I LOVE the natural bold flavor of black coffee. I don’t want a fancy drip coffee maker or a “single serving” multi (artificial) flavored coffee option.  I don’t grind my coffee beans and I don’t use a french press.  I prefer an old-fashioned percolator.  The coffee is unbelievable and the sound and smells coming from the percolator make the coffee taste even better!

You wouldn’t catch me with a cup of decaf for all of the money in the world. If coffee works against me one day, and it causes me to lose sleep…I’ll lose the coffee before I’d switch to decaf.   Not only does it seem pointless to drink coffee with no “kick”, but if you’re a black coffee connoisseur like I am, you know how bad black decaf tastes! If  not for the fact that I HATE the taste of decaf, I may have listened to my “health nut” friends who have preached the dangers of regular/caffeinated coffee to me for years!  Boy, do they have a lot to learn about decaf!

Have you ever wondered how they take caffeine out of a coffee bean?  It certainly isn’t grown that way.  The label doesn’t say NON-caffeinated…it says DE-caffeinated. So how does it lose its caffeine?   A Methylene Chloride wash is the most common way used by the coffee industry to decaffeinate beans before they are actually roasted.  That even SOUNDS toxic.  The following description of Methylene Chloride was pulled directly from the OSHA site:   

Methylene Chloride

Methylene chloride, also called dichloromethane, is a volatile, colorless liquid with a chloroform-like odor. Methylene chloride is used in various industrial processes, in many different industries including paint stripping, pharmaceutical manufacturing, paint remover manufacturing, and metal cleaning and degreasing. The most common means of exposure to methylene chloride is inhalation and skin exposure. OSHA considers methylene chloride to be a potential occupational carcinogen.

So…coffee beans are washed in a chemical that is known to cause cancer just to remove the caffeine that some say is bad for your health? Does that make any sense to you?  If it does, I have some oceanfront property in Arizona that I’d like to talk to you about as soon as possible.

Do yourself a favor.  If you don’t want to partake of caffeine, the next time you are asked “Regular or Decaf” just pass on the coffee all together.  That’s the healthiest caffeine-free option when it comes to coffee.

Naturally, your coffee is only as good as the water it’s made with.  If you opt for tap water to make your coffee, you’re already signing up for hundreds of harmful chemicals (some know carcinogens) with the water alone.  Add in a little Methylene chloride and you’re good to go!

Don’t Expect Brain Power if You’re Not Willing to Water it!

brain waterDid you know that if your brain is dehydrated by as little as 1% you LOSE up to 10% brain capacity?  It’s no wonder we have brain fog!

With epidemic conditions like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s,  autism, ADD/ADHD,  and depression you SHOULD stand up and take notice of the importance of PROPER brain hydration.

We’re Dying of Thirst!

It is reported that 75% of America is walking around CHRONICALLY dehydrated.  Chronic dehydration is defined as being at least 5% dehydrated.  That’s a scary thought when it comes to brain power.  If you lose 10% brain capacity by being just 1% dehydrated then you lose 50% brain capacity by being “chronically dehydrated”.  Of course, brain power is just one of the multitude of other health issues that stem from dehydration.

 Somehow convinced ourselves that we can easily (and safely) replace the need for water by swapping it out for our drink-of-choice like soda or flavored coffee. Nothing could be farther from the truth! Although you may not die of thirst if you continue to consume fluids of one kind or another BUT you WILL pay the ultimate price for not drinking healthy water.

Water…The MOST Important Nutrient

Your brain (and all of the rest of you) needs water.  So if water is the most important nutrient for the human body, don’t you think that the quality of the water you drink is equally as important as the quantity?  Just try dumping bottled water or tap water in your aquarium without a care about pH balance or purity and watch what happens.   Unfortunately, most of us care more about the quality of our wine than we do about the quality of our water.  Sad but true.

“Drinking Fluids” is Not Good Advice!

Although drinking some kind of fluid will keep you from dying of thirst, it won’t sustain health because most of the “fluids” you’re consuming have absolutely no benefit to the human body whatsoever. The majority of your body IS water.  Doesn’t it make sense to drink water to replace water?

The water that we have access to today (bottled, reverse osmosis and tap) doesn’t even come close to resembling water in its healthy and natural state... the way water was first created to be. You can find healthy water in just a few places in the world like Lourdes, France and Tlacote, Mexico (to name a few)  if you’re inclined to travel far and wide for it OR you can use technology to restructure water back to its original state before we managed to mess it up; right in the comfort of your own home.

Healthy Water Can Profoundly Change Your Life!

 The water tap in your home can become your very own “fountain of youth“.   You will be amazed at how your body reacts when you give it what it has been needing all along.  Sound too far-fetched to you?  If so,  I’m guessing you had trouble grasping remote controls and the iPad too?  Don’t underestimate the power of technology.  Just by changing your water you can profoundly change your life!

 It looks like we’ve forgotten some pretty basic things about health and the human body but it’s never too late to change.

Related imageIf you think this image of a diabetic ulcer is painful to look at,  imagine how painful it must be to live with them! Diabetes is serious business and it can lead to serious consequences beyond the need for insulin if you aren’t careful!

In 2017 the Center for Disease Control (CDC)  reported that 100 million Americans are being treated for diabetes (or are currently labeled as pre-diabetic) – that’s 1/3 of the American population!  Some of those diagnosed will jump on the pharmaceutical-train and they’ll begin taking insulin right away without question.  Some people will get serious about the diagnosis and they’ll change their habits in an attempt to avoid the need for insulin altogether.  More often than not the serious ones are able to reverse their diabetes and the “need” for insulin altogether.

No matter how you approach your diabetes there are a few HIGH RISKS that you need to know about!

  1. In the United States, approximately 73,000 amputations of the lower limb are performed on people with diabetes EVERY YEAR!
  2. he lifetime risk of developing a foot ulcer for someone with diabetes is 25%
  3. Research shows that 50% of people with diabetes will die within 2 years after (diabetes related) amputation.
  4. Approximately 20% of hospital admissions in people with diabetes are due to foot ulcers.
  5. Diabetic neuropathy is the cause of 45-60% of diabetic foot ulcers.
  6. Between 10-15% of diabetic foot ulcers do not heal. Of diabetic foot ulcers that do not heal, 25% will require amputation.
  7. In the United States, the cost to care for diabetic foot ulcers averages $11 billion per year.


The risks are very serious but there’s no need to panic.

Take your diagnosis seriously and don’t rely on an insulin shot to cure you!

There is no cure for any disease whatsoever, but there are plenty of things YOU can do (with or without insulin) to improve your journey and there’s a good chance you can reverse your diagnosis if you get serious early on!


  • All wounds (for diabetics) are a big deal! Keep watch for wounds and take them seriously!  Routine exams by a Podiatrist is a good idea for all diabetics.
  • If you have a diabetic ulcer, it’s probably time to think outside the medical-box!  These wounds heal almost 100% of the time when treated with the right protocol and amputations are avoided every day!
  • The Japanese have used a protocol of nothing but proper hydration AND topical treatment using hypochlorous acid (very low pH water) for decades and there are thousands of research studies to back up their protocol.

Since Japan is #1 for health and longevity in the world, it’s a good idea to open your mind to their medical/hospital protocol for wounds that the USA says “don’t/won’t heal.”


I’m grateful that I don’t have diabetes, but I know plenty of people who do! I’ve helped COUNTLESS people with wounds that “don’t heal” from diabetic ulcers to bed sores using the same protocol that’s has been successfully used in Japanese hospitals for decades AND it only costs me pennies to use it! It’s natural, non toxic, and I have an endless supply of hypochlorus acid at the push of  button!  You can – and should – have the same technology in your home too ESPECIALLY if you are diabetic!  It’s not much bigger than the average coffee maker and it can be installed and ready to use within minutes!


If you have diabetes and you’re serious about doing whatever you can do to have a long and healthy future, then you need to understand your risks AND you need to be sure to have what it takes for your journey!  

Owning a device like I have that can produce an endless supply of natural wound care (AND the healthiest drinking water for hydration) for wounds that USA doctors say “won’t heal” should be a no-brainer step for ANYONE  with your diabetes.

Yes, this technology will cost you…but it won’t cost you and arm or a leg like diabetes can AND it will be around for decades to help you and your friends & family 

Buy it...try it for you diabetic ulcers (or any other wound that ails you) and if you don’t experience what I believe you will, send it back within 30 days for a refund!  What do you have to lose by trying whatever it takes to heal?

Proper hydration with the healthiest water AND a counter top clinic whenever you need it….Japanese-style…with results that will BLOW YOUR MIND when you see that your wounds CAN heal after all.

What would it mean to you if that wound that “won’t heal” suddenly does and if you can avoid the risk of possible future amputation? 

You never know unless you try!

It May Not Be In Your Head But It Could Be In Your Brain!

brain in your head

Did you know that if your brain is dehydrated by as little as 1% you LOSE 10% brain capacity? With epidemic issues like Alzheimer’s, dementia, autism, ADD, ADHD, and depression, you SHOULD sit up and take notice of the importance of PROPER hydration before it’s too late!

It is reported that 75% of America is walking around CHRONICALLY dehydrated – despite consuming 1500 bottles of commercially bottled water EVERY SECOND in the USA!  Just imagine how many bottles we’d consume IF we were remaining hydrated!

Somehow we’ve convinced ourselves that we can easily (and safely) replace the need for water by swapping it out for another drink-of-choice.  That should come as no surprise since our physicians replaced “drink plenty of water” with “drink plenty of fluids” years ago.   Don’t kid yourselves…THEY KNOW nothing replaces the body’s need for water.  If they didn’t I.V. bags would be full of your drink-of-choice instead of purified water.  If you want to REGAIN or SUSTAIN your health, you NEED plenty of water. Although you may not die of thirst if you continue to consume fluids of one kind or another; you WILL pay the ultimate price with your health for not drinking healthy water.

Your brain (and all of the rest of you) needs water. In fact, water is the most important nutrient for the human body!  So, if water is that important to the body, don’t you think that the quality of the water is equally important?  

Most of us care more about the quality of our wine than we do about the quality of our water.   There is something very sad and very bizarre about that thought process.

No doubt Americans DO need to hydrate the brain.  It seems like we’ve forgotten some pretty basic things about health and the human body.

The Long-term Price we Pay for Long Term “Happy”

happy pillsIt’s no secret that America is prescription happy.  There is a pill or procedure for everything under the sun, and if we weren’t so inclined to fill the prescriptions handed over to us,  our healthcare would take on an entirely different look.

Our need to be “pain-free” has ignited an addiction wildfire that we may never be able to contain.  But having some pain is a normal thing, and having some pain doesn’t necessarily warrant a narcotic to cope.

One reason contributing to the popularity of antidepressants is the expansion of their indications. “Many patients are given antidepressants for non-depression diagnoses, such as anxiety, sleep, and neuropathic pain,” Donovan Maust, M.D., M.S., a geriatric psychiatrist and assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of Michigan, told Psychiatric News.

Since older adults tend to have more contact with the health care system than younger adults, they may be more likely to be given an antidepressant prescription by their family physician, internist, or other specialist.

Our need to put a label on our moods and our inability to cope has ignited an antidepressant nightmare and today, 13% of Americans are being prescribed antidepressants that MOST will never be able to live without because of the consequences related to withdrawal.  Included in this staggering antidepressant statistic are children from 0-5 years old.   I’m not sure how it’s possible to “diagnose” moods, anxiety or the inability to cope in an infant, but apparently somebody sees something they consider to be “abnormal” and before you know it, there’s a happy pill to make it better.

kids on antidepressants

 As antidepressant prescriptions increased 270% over 15 years, suicide rates also increased

No doubt, there is a time and a place for antidepressants and without them some people would suffer needlessly.  But just as surely as we abuse every other pharmaceutical antidepressants are abused too.  Although I don’t pass judgment on the use of antidepressants, I DO know that antidepressants are just like any other medication prescribed…they mask the symptoms without addressing the root problem and they ALWAYS come with side-effects.  THERE IS NO CURE FOR ANY DISEASE OR CONDITION WHATSOEVER despite the pills we take.

Sadly, convenience is the #1 seller in America today, and if it’s possible to take a pill without putting in the work for a healthier body or a sound mind- we’ll opt for the quick-fix almost every time.  Couple that with our fixation on doctors and the fact that most Americans do whatever, or take whatever is recommend to them without question makes the use of antidepressants a vicious and costly cycle.

prozac bones

“Women over the age of 50 who have taken Prozac for prolonged periods of time are 80% more likely to have hip and other bone fractures

Many of the people taking antidepressants use them long-term…68% of people ages 12 and up said they had been taking their antidepressant for two years or more. A quarter of people who took antidepressants reported taking them for 10 years or more.

Women are prescribed antidepressants 2 times more often than men.  It’s interesting to note that (according to the Mayo Clinic) most people taking antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications claim to only have dimmed their symptoms and they continue to struggle with depression and anxiety.  Not only that, but more and more studies are being introduced that claim that antidepressants are not effective in children at all!  In fact, some claim that the child is much worse off from having taken them than they were before they began the vicious cycle.

Where Does Depression Come From?

The answer to this question would solve one of life’s biggest mysteries, and it could help avoid a tremendous amount of pain.  Sometimes depression is brought on by real life circumstances and no amount of medication can alter a painful reality.

Sometimes depression is brought on by a chemical imbalance that no amount of antidepressants on their own can overcome.

Sometimes depression is brought on by our environment and our world doesn’t accept our reaction to it as “normal”.

And sometimes depression is brought on by toxicity – since toxicity is not an easy pill to swallow,  most people won’t bother to change their lifestyle, their diet or their water because of it.  Toxicity is nothing to play around with it can lead to disease, depression and death.

The National Institute of Health (N.I.H.) has officially labeled our children as being “pre-polluted”; a clear sign that they know a lot more than they share with us about the dangers of toxicity…from cancer…to depression…to autism…to death.

DEPRESSION IS REAL.  DEPRESSION HAS REAL CONSEQUENCES…and it’s a REAL sign of something bigger going on.  Masking the symptoms with long-term antidepressants leaves no room to get to the root of the problem and it leaves the door wide open for some serious  long-term consequences….from deeper and darker depression, to bone fractures, to death.

If you, or someone you know, suffers from depression get help NOW.  The solution isn’t always as easy as taking a pill, and it might require a lot of work to work through, but there IS HOPE and there is HELP on either side of a prescription bottle.



If you’d like to learn more about how toxicity CAN negatively impact your body and your mind, reach out to me!  Nobody ever won a battle by doing nothing.

Is BPS Just BS? You Bet Your Sweet Hormones It Is!

baby bottle

There is NO such thing as a safe plastic no matter how good the spin is when it comes to BPA and BSA!  Years after we celebrated the victory to have BPA removed from consumer products (at least those used by small children) we find that the product being used in its place is equally as harmful to our health.

The journal Toxicology In Vitro reports:

“In 2011, the European Commission has restricted the use of Bisphenol A in plastic infant feeding bottles. In a response to this restriction, Bisphenol S is now often used as a component of plastic substitutes for the production of baby bottles. One of the major concerns leading to the restriction of Bisphenol A was its weak estrogenic activity. By using two highly standardised transactivation assays, we could demonstrate that the estrogenic activity of Bisphenol A and Bisphenol S is of a comparable potency.”

Bisphenal (BPA/BPS) is a chemical found in hard plastics and the coatings of food and drink cans.  The body reacts to this chemical in a similar way as it does to estrogen and other hormones.  This is why BPA is referred to as a  “hormone disruptor”.

Don’t look now, but small doses from the Bisphenal family over long periods  of time (in the womb and beyond)  and you and your child will  develop HUGE hormonal problems.  If you ever wonder why so many kids today are sexually active in grade school, why so many of our young boys don’t act like little boys,  and why our little girls are beginning the menstrual process as young as age 7 years old,  you can turn to Bisphenal  for answers AND the blame.

Bisphenal  is used to make a multitude of products including water bottles, dental fillings, medical devices and BPA can be found in epoxy resins used as coatings inside of food and drink cans.  It isn’t easy to get away from BPA but it is possible.

Yep…telling us that BPA has been replaced with BPS for safety purposes is just BS.   Start saying  “hell no” to plastics for the sake of the health of  the next generation(s).  The damage done by BPA and BSA last a WHOLE LOT LONGER than the bottle.

From Colon to Brain? That Ought to be Enough to Make Anybody Drink!

 Don’t expect to sustain good health if you refuse to drink plenty of healthy water!  When the body falls short of water for normal activities like digestion and elimination of wastes, it has a built-in survival mechanism to draw from its own water reserves.  The body miraculously prioritizes the needs.  It will always extract water from “lower priority areas” like the colon and then will transfer it to areas of higher importance like the brain, heart and so on.  Now that’s a nasty thought!  Water from your colon to hydrate your brain?  That alone should be enough incentive for you to be sure you remain properly hydrated with safe, healthy water!

It is important to understand that when water reserves have been exhausted from a low priority area like the colon, it will then draw from the next lowest priority areas such as the joints, skin and so on.  Over time, if the body is forced to draw upon its own reserves because its water needs are not being met, a range of seemingly unconnected symptoms will begin to manifest.  Symptoms of dehydration can include aches and pains such as headaches and joint pain, constipation, digestive imbalances like acid re-flux, skin issues, asthma and even depression as the brain is deprived of water.

Dehydration is nothing to take lightly.  Before you rush off to treat your symptoms with medication, get serious about giving your body what it needs to maintain proper hydration.  Absolutely nothing takes the place of water.  If you doubt that, try filling a fishbowl with your favorite energy drink or water your plants with a Starbucks coffee.  The human body is NO different…nothing replaces the need for water, no matter how much “water” is a part of what you’re drinking!  

If you’re committed to drinking water for your health and wellness, doesn’t it make sense that you understand a little more about what kind of water you’re drinking?

I think they’re worth it.

Do YOU think you’re worth it?

Udderly Ridiculous! Thanks, Monsanto!


Back in my day, dairy cows could live to be 20 years old.  Today they’re lucky if they make it to their 5th birthday.

Back in my day, milk was a primary staple in the American home.  It was known to be healthy and our children were encouraged to drink lots of it for the development of strong bones and teeth.  Today milk is laced with chemicals and hormones and lots and lots of Americans are mysteriously “allergic” to it.

Back in my day, we didn’t talk much about hormones unless we were in the presence of a menopausal woman.   Thanks to Monsanto our food chain sounds more like a bad science fiction movie.  We consume foods filled with hormones and our children are ingesting endocrine disruptors in plastics and other toxic substances  on a daily basis.

Monsanto’s answer to boosting milk production is to inject dairy cows with growth hormones.  Apparently the selling point to the commercial dairy farmer is that these hormones will increase milk production by 30%.  I don’t know if I feel sorrier for the cows or the humans.

The Japanese have a different (and healthier) answer to increasing milk production.   After extensive research involving 19 commercial dairy farms, they studied the outcome of offering cows only electrolyzed reduced water to drink.  What they found was shocking.  Their research concluded that the cows drinking  electrolyzed reduced water (ionized water) produced on the average of 25% more milk.  Furthermore, these cows had no mastitis which is the most common and most costly challenge for dairy farmers.

By the way, this study was duplicated in the USA and the results were the same.

Who needs Monsanto when you can increase milk production just by offering cows the RIGHT kind of water?

When is enough enough?  How did we become so greedy that we’re willing to throw human (and animal) life under the bus for the sake of bigger profits? Our children and our children’s children deserve better than that, don’t you think?

I vote for the Japanese way of increasing the milk supply udders hands down!  

It’s safe, healthy, more affordable and it’s humane.  

Is it any wonder that japan is #1 in the world for health and longevity while America is # 40?

The U.S. Consumes 1500 Bottles of Water Per Second…That’s Enough to Make Anybody Choke!

Plastic bottles are a BIG problem in more ways than one and the odds are that you’re a major contributor.  Being part of the problem is being part of the problem, no matter how conscientious you are about your pretty blue recycling containers!  If you could wrap your head around how BIG the problem is;  you should have trouble sleeping at night!  The bottled water trend is enough to make anybody choke!

Image result for water bottle recycling images

  1. Out of the 80 billion bottles of water being bought each year, 80% end up in the landfill despite our “recycling” efforts.  Though recycling programs do exist, most bottles don’t end up there.  You may not be throwing them into the streets and streams yourself, however what you place in the recycling container rarely goes where YOU THINK it goes.  Why not, you ask?  Because there is no longer a market for it…at least not much of one.  Plastic that isn’t RESOLD to someone else (primarily China) for recycling purposes goes directly into our landfills!
  2. 17 million barrels of oil are used to produce plastic water bottles EACH YEAR.   This doesn’t include the cost to transport water from one side of the planet to the other.  So much for our oil crisis.  Apparently plastic bottle production takes priority over driving cars and heating homes If you believe that we have an unlimited supply of natural resources, THINK AGAIN! 
  3. The cost of bottled water is 1,000 times more than tap water, and yet – most of it IS tap water under a different label.   How does it feel to be suckered?
  4. The plastic leaches toxins into the water…period.   In fact, the process used to “purify” this water requires temperatures high enough to cause the plastic to leach into the water the minute the bottle is filled! These toxins have been proven to cause cancer and disrupt hormones.  Is it any wonder we have kids hitting puberty in the first grade OR that the #1 cause of death of children under the age of 14 is cancer?  When I was a child the leading cause of death in children under the age of 14 was accidental drowning.
  5. The average number of bottles used per person in the U.S is 167.   In 2015 Americans consumed the equivalent of 1.7 billion half-liter bottles of water every week!  
  6. Despite the massive volume of bottled water Americans are buying, they aren’t consuming enough to sustain hydration.   Statistics suggest that each American is consuming 15 gallons of water each year.  It’s no wonder Americans are sick!   You should be consuming 15 gallons inside of a few weeks…NOT a year!  It looks like your bottled water costs are about to double if hydration is your goal.
  7. If tap water cost the same as you’re paying for bottled water,  the average American water bill would be $9000 per month!

The most interesting point to be made here is that most people choke when they hear what I paid for my solution to this problem  despite the fact that mine will last 20 years while theirs will last 20 minutes a bottle.  Not only do these people need to go back to the drawing board for a solution of their own; they need a simple lesson in math too.  I’m saving thousands of dollars PER YEAR and they’re part of a bottomless pit that will last FOREVER.

1500 bottles every single second?

How long will you keep adding to the problem?

Until then…how do you sleep at night?

Withholding Water From Babies? No Wonder We Have Problems!

Related imageSince the beginning of time babies have been offered water beginning at birth, but someone somewhere has decided that this basic human need is no longer important to our young.  No wonder we have big health problems!

When my babies were born, the hospital staff INSISTED that I offer them a little water along with breast milk.  It wasn’t a recommendation…it was an order! Not being a water drinker myself at the time, I questioned why it was so important that they drink it.  In addition to explaining the importance of water for digestion (and constipation), they also stressed that if my baby didn’t get used to the “texture” of water early on, it would be more difficult to get them to drink it later.  My babies drank water right along with breast milk;  a few sips here, a few sips there NOT a bottle of water!

Today, parents are warned NOT to give their baby water for at least the first 6 months…the irony is that most young parents aren’t arguing it!  It boggles the mind that something so vital for human health would be considered to be harmful to our little ones.  The reason they give for withholding water sounds harmless…they say that breast milk and formula are mostly made up of water so there is no need to offer it to them separately.  Some physicians even go so far as to say that babies can reach water intoxication and die.  Although that’s humanly possible, anyone offering water to an infant knows that its sure not likely.   My medical advisers were sure to tell me that my baby needed a “few ounces of water a day” from birth offered here and there in between feedings.  No baby is going to get water intoxication if those common sense guidelines are followed!

Breast milk and formula ARE mostly water – BUT so is coffee and I wouldn’t feed it to my plants!

 I can see why people fall for this “no water” nonsense, because we gradually changed the tune from “drink 6 -8 ounces glasses of water per day” to a “drink plenty of fluids” message.  Nothing else on earth could tolerate “fluids” instead of pure water, so why do we think the human body is okay with that either?

Pour a little coffee, tea, juice, or milk into your fish aquarium and see how long they thrive!  Those beverages are made up of mostly water too, but your fish won’t buy-in to your rationale…they’ll just get sick an die.

Pour a little soda, wine, or sports drink onto your favorite plants and see how long they thrive!  These things are made up of mostly water too, but your plants won’t buy-in to your ridiculous rationale either…they’ll just wither an die.

I’ve heard plenty of people say that their dog “doesn’t like water” – but their Veterinarian says that wet dog food replaces the need for extra water so they don’t even offer water anymore.  What???  Where are all the animal rights activists over that one!


Withholding water from any living being goes against nature and it WILL lead to chronic health conditions because of it.  These days babies are commonly diagnosed with acid reflux and constipation – real problems  that could so easily be remedied with just a little fresh, clean, safe and healthy water.

You won’t find fresh, clean, safe and healthy water in your tap…in a plastic bottle…or through a refrigerator or pitcher filter!

But when you get your hands on fresh, clean, safe and healthy water you’ll be offering it up to everyone and everything…from birth to the grave…no matter what the “Professionals” are saying these days…



When you’re ready to offer your baby and the rest of your loved ones fresh, clean, safe and healthy water – I  literally wrote THE BOOK on it – reach out to me!
