The Dangers of Tap Water

Clean, safe water is one of the most important elements of a healthy body. It is essential to life Water is a universal solvent. It carries nutrients to every cell in our body. Water flushes out harmful toxins from our body. We are a water-based lifeform. The first step in getting the body chemistry in proper order is to become well hydrated with the best water ever. Being well-hydrated increases the strength of our immune system. Proper hydration keeps our skin and organs healthy. Hydration is essential in keeping us clear, bright and beautiful. Hydration is the main factor that keeps one’s tissues “juicy.”

It is a sad fact that finding a pure water source in today’s polluted environment is almost impossible. Unsafe water is not just a third world problem. Finding water that is safe to drink is even harder in industrially developed countries such as the U.S. Research shows that most tap and well water in the U.S. now are not safe for drinking due to heavy industrial and environmental pollution. We have created a situation where all sources of our drinking water, including municipal water systems, rivers, lakes, streams, wells, and even glaciers, contain some level of contamination.

Although many of the contaminants that are found in our drinking water do not exist at levels high enough to cause immediate illness, research has found that low-level exposure to many of these contaminants will cause severe illnesses including cancer, over time. The chemicals commonly used to treat municipal water supplies such as chlorine and fluoride are toxic and are known to have negative effects on the human body.

How bad is it?

The General Accounting Office reports that 20% of the nation’s 65,000 community systems are unable to meet minimum standards set by the Safe Drinking Water Act. A recent government study found that more than 25% of all large U.S. public water systems contain traces of one or more toxic substances.

According to the EPA, tap water contains more than seven hundred organic chemicals that are suspected cancer causing agents. Other common pollutants in our tap water are:



Organo-phosphate residues











In Dr. Howard Fisher’s book Extreme Toxic Times: How to Escape on Your Own Two Feet, he states that government sources have four categories of drinking water pollution:

1. natural pathogens

2. organic, inorganic or radioactive chemicals

3. disinfectants and coagulants (that are left over from treating the pathogen load present in the water)

4. chemical byproducts (that are present due to the reaction of the disinfectants with organic or inorganic materials in the water)

Public water systems do not test for the carcinogens and other dangerous chemicals that are being found.

Not only are we drinking from contaminated water sources, but we are also bathing in them. Do you have a water filter on your shower or bathtub? If you don’t, then your skin, which is the largest eliminative organ in your body, is soaking up all those poisonous chemicals. All the toxicity that is present in the tap water is being delivered directly into your cells.

Don’t EVER drink tap water again. It is undermining our health. We are remaining dehydrated and toxic. We’re not flushing anything out, we are adding to the problem and not the solution. Now don’t despair, Nature has a solution. It is easy, fun, and free! We get ourselves so deep into a hole, but Nature is always there to pull us out. The solution to this problem is fresh spring water from the source. Fresh spring water is the quintessential product of the Earth’s natural hydrological cycle. Bottled spring water in glass is a great choice for drinking water.

When we drink spring water collected fresh from the source, it is absorbed directly into the body. The cells absorb all of the hydrogen ions present in the water (remember, water = H2O + ORMUS), so the water hardly even reaches the stomach. So instead of sloshing around inside, it feels as if the water is converted right into light. When we drink water that feels heavy inside our bodies, that means that the water is of a poor quality, as it did not directly absorb into our system.

Victor Schauberger was the first person to focus my attention on the idea that water can be “ennobled”, and how all of life is about ennobling water in a dynamic interaction between the “heavens” and the Earth. I started to see that what is going on inside of every tree, every plant, every amoeba, is, ultimately, an ennobling of water. That organism is taking water into it’s own biology, it’s own consciousness, and is ennobling the water to it’s view of the world. For example, a flower’s perspective of the world is different than ours, and so the “consciousness” of the water gets to go through a wide range of life and collect infinite information.

When any living thing takes in water, whether it be a tree or ourselves, the water gets to experience its perspective of the world. This is an interesting angle to approach life on earth from. When we look at water as a living thing that’s having experiences just like we are, it helps us come into a relationship with water where we don’t pollute our rivers, we don’t pollute the aquifers, and we actually produce pure drinking water and spring water consciously bottled in glass.

At my house the water comes from a spring that is about a thousand yards away. When I am not at home I am always on the lookout for fresh spring water sources to fill up at. It is such a gift to be able to drink fresh, naturally filtered water, the way the earth does it. When one has this kind of living water, it becomes much easier to fast and eat less in general, for the water nourishes you.

Charging Water

Charging water means giving a “life-pattern” or structure to the water at a microscopic level. The hydrogen molecules in water are closer together if the water is charged. This makes the water more polar (strongly electrical).

The Best Ways to charge water:

Squeeze fresh juices into the water. Squeezing lemons and/or limes into your water are excellent choices because they have incredible cleansing and mucus-dissolving properties.

Add a blade of grass or a few green herbs and leaves into the water

Add some green superfood powders into the water (you can add some agave, honey, yacon, or stevia to sweeten up the taste)

Add a few pinches of Celtic Grey Mineral Sea Salt or Himalayan Pink Salt. These are some of the best choices for non-vegetable sources of salt. These salts each contain over 80 different minerals in similar ratios as they appear in sea water. They are “raw” salts, thus they differ from coagulated table salt and most “kiln-dried” sea salts that have had their minerals oxidized away through heating.

Add Dr. Patrick Flanagan’s Crystal Energy

Add MSM Powder Crystals

Place a crystal inside your glass of water

Put water in a glass jar outside under moonlight for the night (especially the full moon). Water reacts to moonlight.

Run water through a vortex, water spinner/vitalizer, or vortrap (the tornado effect) to improve its quality.

Dr. Emoto has shown in his books The Message from Water, that water responds to loving thoughts and even words written on a water bottle. Water quality seems to always reflect our actions and intentions. Try it for yourself!

How Much Water Should we Drink?

We should ideally drink when our stomach is empty of food. Drinking water with food can dilute digestive fluids leading to poor absorption and constipation. The best time to drink water is upon rising in the morning. Drink at least 1/2 liter (16 fluid ounces) or more at that time.

The typical recommendation to drink “8-10 twelve-ounce glasses of water” each day is excessive if one eats 80%+ juicy raw plant foods. Even if one eats 100% raw foods, however, drinking water each day is still very important. Plain water has its own flushing abilities that simply are not found in coconut water, fruits, and vegetable juices. If one eats 80%+ raw foods, I recommend drinking enough water based on the following ratio: Total weight (in pounds) divided by 4 = # (in ounces)

Take one’s total weight (in pounds) and divide it by four. This will give a number. This number is then the number of fluid ounces of water one should drink in a day. For example, if one weighs 170 pounds and eats primarily raw plant foods, 170 divided by 4 is 42.5. A good daily intake of water for this person would be 42.5 ounces (this is a little more than a 32-ounce quart). (One fluid ounce is equivalent to approximately 30 milliliters).

Be aware that dehydration can happen rapidly. An hour of intense exercise can cause us to lose a quart (liter) of water. A four-hour airline flight can cause us to lose up to a quart (liter) of water.

When buying bottled water, always choose glass over plastic. Plastic leaches into the water (this is often detectable by taste), and is detrimental because it mimics hormones in our body, causing glandular imbalances. Distilled water is not natural. It is an unnatural form of water that should be avoided.
