The 3 Best Sources of Drinking Water


The Human Body is About 99% Water When it is Conceived.

The Human Body is About 75% Water When it is a Newborn Baby.

The Human Body is About 50% Water When it is Old and Wrinkled.

As we age our bodies slowly dehydrate. / As we dehydrate our bodies slowly age.

It's like putting grapes in a dehydrator, the more water that you remove from them, the more wrinkled and shriveled up they become as they slowly turn into dry raisons. So in order to keep your body youthful and vibrant, it is essential to keep it properly hydrated.

Out of all the nutrients that we need in our diets, water is the one that we need the most as far as quantity is concerned, so making an effort to replace other drinks (like coffee, soda, and energy drinks) with water is a great first step in improving your diet.

If you feel thirsty, it means that your body needs water, so please start making water your beverage of choice, and start enjoying the feeling of better hydration.


Water needs can vary quite a bit from person to person (diet, activity levels, and even the weather can all have a major impact on our hydration and water requirements) so there is no universal amount of water that everyone on the planet should be drinking each day.

However, doing the following 6 things will help ensure that you are getting enough water...

1. Drink a glass of water first thing each morning before you eat or drink anything else.

2. Eat a diet that includes a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables. (They are mostly water.)

3. Whenever you go somewhere, bring a water bottle with you.

4. Never ignore thirst, and ideally drink enough water that you don't experience thirst in the first place.

5. Consume enough water that you are urinating at least 10 times a day.

6. Consume enough water that your urine is almost as clear as the water you drink.



The best way to add more water to your diet, is to simply eat foods that have a lot of water in them. (Like fruits and vegetables, which on typically between 80% and 90% water.)

If you put an apple, a pear, or an orange in a juice machine, you will get juice, but if you put 1,000,000 "Oreo Cookies" in a juice machine, you won't get a single drop!

Water is required to digest the foods that we eat, which is why your body will produce strong feelings of thirst shortly after eating something that doesn't have much water in it.

If you eat a dry slice of bread (which kind of looks like a sponge) it will act like a sponge too by soaking up and absorbing water inside your body just so that it can be processed. (Resulting in your body crying out for more water.)

If there is any truth to the old saying "you are what you eat", and if we are mostly water, then I believe that our optimal diet would have to be mostly water like we are. So if you want to be hydrated, eat water rich foods and avoid eating dehydrated foods, because dehydrated foods will dehydrate you.

It is also important to consume water that is clean, and it should be noted that plants are also some of the best "water filters" on the planet. (When an apple tree absorbs water from underground, that water has to travel through the roots, up the trunk, and across the branches in order to get to the apples, and along that journey it gets filtered organically through a process that nature spent countless years perfecting.)


When it rains, some of the rain will end up in creeks, lakes, rivers, ponds, and oceans and become "surface water", while the rest of the rain will sink into the ground and become "ground water".

As "ground water" slowly sinks downward into the Earth, it gets filtered organically as it passes through countless layers of dirt, sand, and rock, until it eventually finds its way into underground aquifers. And as these aquifers fill up, the water slowly rises back up to the surface, and will ultimately burst out of the ground as "spring water".

Almost all of the problems with water today are the result of man-made pollution that has been going on since the "Industrial Revolution", but the water that comes out of a spring can be thousands of years old, and can be some of the purest drinking water that you can find in nature.

Springs that are located in public areas (such as parks) are usually tested for water quality, and you can even do your own independent testing these days thanks to all of the inexpensive testing kits that are available on-line. So if you live near a spring that is free of contaminants and free of cost, I strongly recommend that you gather up some empty glass bottles and start making "spring water" your main source of drinking water.


Although there are hundreds of man-made water filters on the market, the majority of them will not be able to remove the microscopic (and most harmful) contaminants that can be found in tap water. So the only home water filter that I recommend using is a "water distiller", because it is the only filter I currently know of that is powerful enough to remove EVERYTHING from water that shouldn't be there.

A water distiller purifies water the same way that nature does...

- If you spill a can of soda on the sidewalk on a hot and sunny day, the water in that soda will evaporate and rise up to the sky, and then it will fall back down as rain drops. And all of the other ingredients that were in the soda (the sugar, the preservatives, the food colorings, etc) will remain on the sidewalk, and will not become rain.

- If you put water in a distiller, it will slowly heat the water until it turns into steam, then the steam will rise up into a cooling chamber above where it will be collected, cooled, and condensed back into liquid water which will then slowly drip or "rain" into a separate container. And anything else that was in the water (dirt, chemicals, bacteria, etc) will be left behind in the distiller.)

Distilled water is the cleanest water you can drink (it's pure oxygen and hydrogen) and even rainwater isn't this clean in most places due to the fact that there is so much pollution in the air from automobiles and factories, that as rain falls from the sky to the ground it will absorb some of this airborne pollution on the way down.

Although a water distiller is an investment, if you are currently buying bottled water at the store, it can actually save you a lot of money in the long run to get one. (A 16 oz bottle of water at the store typically costs more than a 16 oz bottle of "Coke" or "Pepsi".)

Once you have paid for your distiller, you will merely have to pay for the cost of electricity to run it (which will be pennies per gallon) plus the cost of water (which can be the inexpensive tap water from your sink or the completely free water that you personally collect from rain or from a local stream) so please consider making this investment in your health.

And try to keep your distilled water in glass bottles, because one of the reasons that I don't recommend buying water at the grocery store (including distilled water) is because it is typically sold in plastic bottles, and if you've ever had the experience of drinking bottled water that tasted like plastic, it's because plastic particles from the bottle leeched into the water and you were drinking plastic!

"Dasani water tastes like it has been sitting in a plastic water gun."

As far as what brand of distiller to get, there are a lot of different brands out there, and I certainly haven't tried them all, so I'm simply going to recommend that you search for a home water distiller that has amazing reviews and that comes with a money back guarantee and a warrantee so that you know you have nothing to lose by making this investment.

After using your distiller for the first time, open it up and look at all of the junk that got removed from the original water. (If you use tap water, you will be shocked to see just how filthy tap water really is, and you will never want to drink water directly out of the tap again.)



Because our bodies are mostly water, I like to think of myself as a "body of water", and when I look at bodies of water in the environment, it becomes clear to me what other lifestyle choices I should be making for optimal health...

* Bodies of water that are stagnant and unmoving can attract mosquitoes and become a breeding ground for parasites and pathogens which ultimately leads to the spread of sickness and disease. And if we live sedentary lives and allow ourselves to become "stagnant bodies of water" (or "couch potatoes" as some like to say) we too can literally attract a plague of health problems upon us due to this inactivity. So I choose to "flow" by making exercise and movement a regular part of my life.

* Bodies of water that are exposed to man-made toxins become unclean and harmful to life rather than beneficial, which is why I try to avoid man-made toxins, and why I would never attempt to "clean" my body or my surroundings with man-made toxic cleaning products when I know full well that pouring "Bleach" (or just about anything else from the "Cleaning Aisle") into a lake would be an act of pollution, and when I know full well that pouring things like that into my drinking water would result in me having to call the "Poison Hotline" for help. (I usually drink a gallon of water a day, and there is probably an additional gallon of water contained inside the food that I eat in a day. So a lot of fresh water is flowing through me every day, and this combined with avoiding toxins whenever possible helps keep my body clean and non-toxic from the inside out.)

* Bodies of water that are steady flowing and rhythmic can have a soothing and therapeutic benefit to those who spend time around them, and it has been said that there are enough veins and other "streams" inside of each one of us to completely stretch around the Earth a few times! And when these vast streams inside of us are unobstructed and able to flow steadily and in their own natural rhythms, it results in us having less internal stress, which then results in us becoming less susceptible to the external stresses surrounding us, which ultimately results in us having a more positive energy which can have a soothing and therapeutic effect on those who spend time around us :)
