Building health for your future

November 21, 2018

We usually think that filtered water is just good for drinking and using in the kitchen, but cleaning up your water in the bathroom can help too.

Shower

Installing a shower filter is pretty straightforward, and can help considerably with your health. Why?

Most water municipalities add chlorine to the public water system to disinfect the water, which is good for sanitizing the water, but the chlorine is not the best thing to consume, or bathe in.

Keep in mind, that when you are taking a hot shower, the chlorine vaporizes and mixes with the steam, (especially with hot water), and you are breathing those fumes as long as you are in the shower, (and bathroom).

Most home improvement stores, or your local hardware store sell "screw on" showerhead filters that are pretty easy to install.

In a way, yes.

This helps greatly with cardiovascular health in addition to keeping your cells stable.

Our bodies need lots of water to operate correctly, and hydration helps

with flushing out toxins, especially if you drink, smoke, or eat lots of conventional

junk food.

When the body is dehydrated, it takes water from the blood making the blood thicker.

Thicker blood means the heart has to pump harder, and it’s a good idea not to unnecessarily

strain the ticker.

You should drink at least 3 quarts of water each day, and more during the hotter months.

Of course, filtered water is the best.

2. Put some “anti’s” in your body.

Regardless of your diet, your body is constantly ravaged by free radicals, which essentially

do damage to your cells, which in turn, ages you quicker.

If you drink or smoke, this is even more accelerated.

You can protect yourself by taking “anti-oxidants”, which counteract the effects of oxidation

from free radical damage. (Fr...
