Water, Our Precious Resource

Fewer things can affect our health faster than bad water. We consist almost entirely of the stuff. This is why an article my son recently sent is of vital importance. The article entitled “Perhaps No U.S. Streams Unpolluted” by John Heilprin and run by the Associated Press says the United States may have no streams left that are free from chemical contamination, and about one-fifth of animal species and one-sixth of plant types are at risk of extinction.

Heilprin's article tells that these are findings from a study commissioned five years ago by former President Clinton and released by the H. John Heinz III Center for Science, Economics and the Environment.

The study was begun in 1997 at the request of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and you can learn more about this at the site below.

This is why we discovered a shamanic secret in the Andes that will perhaps surprise you. They do not drink water. Instead they eat highly digestible liquid foods and drink large amounts of herbal teas instead. So here is a simple trick that can have an enormous impact on your health. Quit or cut back drinking coffees, soft drinks and teas with caffeine. Drink chamomile, lemon grass, licorice, dandelion root and mint tea instead. O discover your own favorite delicious herbal teas…there are thousands of them! There are few things that can have such a fast and profound effect that makes you feel better.

Until then, despite the stresses and pollutants we face, may your health be better and better!
