Water: 5 Ways It Heals Your Body
The quality of our water is of extreme importance in our health, especially considering it is the primary building block of the human body. It amazes me that folks still drink tap water, given the 600 genotoxic and carcinogenic disinfectant byproducts contained within municipal H2O.[i] Go to a high end restaurant in NYC, for instance, and you will be accosted with solicitations to drink the highly prized “filtered tap” that they pass off as somehow beneficial to your body.

Consider, also, that there is a growing movement to acknowledge the value of ‘structured water,’ that is, water that is part of an organism, preferably of plant origin: watermelon, and vegetable foods that have locked within the cell wall H20 in its purest form. For instance, when you consume
Now, let’s delve deep into the literature on deep seawater, considering that for most of us this is not a product that is yet available, but which speaks nonetheless to the value of substances naturally occurring on the planet with profound value in healing:
