The Battle of the Bottled Water Wars Rages On - With No Clear Winner in Sight

Bottled Water Versus Tap Water: Who WINS?

Well the answer to that question isn't clear. Today I'm going to ask you to watch two videos. Don't worry, they're very entertaining - they're not Ronnie Ruiz of Healing Water Machine's Alkaline Ionized Water (he's pretty entertaining - you should check him out) - but entertaining nonetheless. The first video, The Story of Bottled Water, compelling as it is - leaves out some very important facts about plain tap water from your tap. Without further adieu ...

Great video, eh? Even I agree that it is.

This next video is a rebuttal to the first; not quite as entertaining - and not quite The Real Story of Bottled Water, either - but here goes - check it out

So...who wins? Well, as you've probably already figured out. The answer to that isn't cut and dry.

We at healingwatermachines love our tap water. We swear by our high alkaline tap water. We live and drink by our ionized tap water. We believe in the benefits of our straight from the TAP alkaline water.

According to some recent research done on tap water in major metro areas the biggest problem with regular tap water straight from your municiple source is that it very well may contain some scary ingredients like: Rocket fuel, pesticides, arsenic or lead! not to mention germs. Good old fashioned germs seem pretty tame in comparison.

So what IS the answer? should we all be green and stop using so many bottles? Of course we should. We should all try our darndest to care for the world we use to live, and it wouldn't kill a single human being to reuse the same plastic bottle a few times in a row. Is the Story of Bottled Water wrong? not entirely.

Save Money and Be Green - Make Your Own Alkaline Bottled Water - Fresh from YOUR tap

Here's something you can do to both cut down on the plastic water bottle problem AND get healthier at the same time. Buy an Alkaline Ionized water machine and put your beautiful water in reusable bottle - glass or plastic works. Let's do the math on this first just to be sure that buying an ionized water machine is worth the money.

Reusable just don't have the same safety issues that regular drinking water bottles have. First of all they don't leak carcinogens - and unlike regular bottled water bottles, they can safely be soaked in hot water. They come in all sorts of really cool, functional styles. At first you'll be paying a little more for the bottle. They range from a few bucks to about 25 bucks each.

Even so called bottled Alkaline waters are not stable and lose their alkalinity. And no bottled water has the benefit of ionization. Ionized water must be consumed within 8-24 hours of production to have the benefit of the antioxidants. That means that uber expensive (from 2 bucks to 5 bucks per 1/1.5l) bottled alkaline water you're buying off the shelves isn't even giving you the benefits you're seeking from a good structured alkaline ionized water!

Investing in a good alkaline water machine can save you money almost immediately and the benefits of fresh from YOUR tap alkaline ionized water cannot be beat. Fresh from YOUR tap water has a unique taste, too. It tastes like water is supposed to taste.

As always we invite you to try our water. Questions are always welcome and we never charge a dime to give you the time you need to address your concerns about health and ionized alkaline water.

See Immediate Health Benefits: Alkaline Ionized Water + Deep Breathing

Reduced Your Stress Immediately. Two Tips Work Hand in hand: alkaline ionized water + Deep breathing

If anyone finds them selves tired or run down or overly frustrated during the day try this energy/ stress releasing tip: alkaline ionized water + deep breathing! Yep, That Simple!

ionized alkaline water

1. Drink 16 ounce of alkaline ionized water straight down. (all of it)
2. Take a slow DEEP breath, pull the breath in hard enough to stretch your rib cage, really try to expand your lungs. As you're breathing in push down on the lower end of your rib cage at the sternum, keep your chin tucked in.
3. Exhale slowly and forcefully to squeeze out the last ounce of air from your lungs.
4. repeat this 4-5 times.
You will feel an imediate improvement in your energy and reduction in stress. Your brain is going to send the signal to your body immediately.

Not all alkanized water is created equal. For example: bottled alkaline water

When you eat the wrong foods and end up with acidic stomach or heartburn, what's the first thing you reach for? Antacids. The active ingredient in Antacids are sodium bicarbonate. Sodium bicarbonate is great for a quick fix; it helps reduce symptoms of heartburn and acid in the tummy - but should you be consuming sodium bicarbonate every time you drink bottled alkaline water? Good grief NO!

We did a little sleuthing and found out that at least 1 major brand of bottled alkaline water lists sodium bicarbonate as its second ingredient! That means, if you're drinking the right amount of alkaline antioxidant water every day, you're consuming far too much sodium bicarbonate!

Healingwatermachines produces fresh alkaline antioxidant water without the additive; alkaline water is a miracle...that is, without the additives. You don't need sodium bicarbonate in every ounce of drinking water which is exactly what you're getting when you buy bottled alkaline water.

And don't forget, breathe deep and drink ionized water until you're heart and body is content!

Free Radicals - Alkaline Ionized Water Can Help. A Healing Journey, Part 1

"I Feel the difference when I drink ionized water. I feel more a watered plant. I can't get over how good I feel. Seriously. I'm stoked!"

This is my story - about a year ago I started feeling very toxic. I wasn't drinking enough water, let alone ionized alkaline water (about which I thought: "structured water" was yet another ding batty concept in the world of health fanatics and freaks. honestly, I thought it was snake oil, just pure snake oil on tap!) But I digress. When I say "toxic" I mean I could literally feel some sort of poison in my system coursing through my blood, particularly when I woke up. I would wake up feeling so sick. Of course, I was eating like crap, drinking about 3 cups of water a day with instant coffee in it. My breakfast, when I bothered to actually eat anything, consisted of whatever starchy concoction I threw together, ate and then saved from the night before; usually potatoes, cheese and tons of hot sauce poured over, and of course coffee with tons of sugary cream, - and a few pieces of nicotene gum thrown in to help the wake up process.

My daily routine was an equal-to-my-diet-recipe-for-disease-and-disaster, and it looked like this: Most days I would get out of bed, feeling gross and poisoned by my habits, wander to my computer (I work from home on the internet), check out the terrain online, and then glue myself to the desk chair until around 2PM. By 2PM I was flat out exhausted and felt even sicker than I did when I woke up. But that didn't stop me. I was superwoman, an ex cyclist with a resting heart rate of 38 beats per minute 15 years ago. No way was I on my way to bad health or disease. Not me. I couldn't see any reason why my superior conditioning 15 years ago couldn't carry me through until I'm 100. I was in denial and while living in denial my body was rebelling against the abuse; my stomach burned 24/7, I woke up in hot or cold sweats - sometimes both! Sleep was painful because everything ached all the time; my joints, my head, my chest. And getting this unhealthy had also taken its toll on my heart and mind. I was depressed. Not the everyday blues depression either. This was hell.

Thankfully, finally, I could take no more. A friend "Just happened" to call me and tell me about a nutritionist she knows. I couldn't get to the nutritionist fast enough. In tears, I begged her for an appointment. It was 3PM that day and my appt was at 5. I sat in bed and cried, counting the minutes until my appt. And I knew that what I was about to learn was going to change my life. It was like a warning signal went off around the parameter of all my bad habits, signaling them to be aware that they would need to change radically.

And that's what I finally had to do; I addressed my life and my world in a radical way. This is my story and my journey down the road of slow change. No, things didn't just suddenly get magically better overnight. Gosh it was overwhelming. There were so many changes to make, so many bad habits to overcome, and a lot of healing needed to take place to counteract the damage I had done to myself.

The nutritionist pricked my finger several times and then took five blood samples and then scrutinzed them under a microscope. Then she blew me away and said "You started smoking around 26 or 27 years of age, I can see that."

Oh boy. I just said "...yes" and then cried. Although I had quit smoking 2 years ago I was now living with the physical and emotional damage I had brought to my body. That was enough emotional trauma for a day, I thought to myself.

But then she said "That's a free radical. Look at it" -

And I looked at it. Here's the picture taken from my iPhone:

It looks like death! Notice my two red blood cells off to the left. The free radical is impressively much larger than the red blood cells.

The nutritionist explained what free radicals are, what they do and how damaging they are - and how they can be addressed. She addressed a few other issues which I'll share in the rest of this series.

I left her office that day equal parts encouraged and horrified! But I now had a plan and I could finally relax because I knew that by addressing some of these issues slowly and over time that I would get the benefits equal to what I put into it, and most of all start feeling good again.

With so many changes on the horizon, big and small, I addressed the biggest 2: diet, and water. I was given supplements and told that I won't need to take all of them for the rest of my life. This was also a big change because it would mean I would need to start forming some new, healthy habits...and this would require will, some self love, and discipline.

I will wrap this up until my next post in the series. For me, change was hard. For most people change is hard. The biggest change, and quite frankly the easiest for me was to start drinking some ionized alkaline water. The first thing I noticed about the water was the taste. I was blown away by the taste - and still am. This was the best drinking water I had ever tasted. The taste of this particular alkaline water made my conversion to alkaline ionized living water a lot easier. I started feeling hydrated. I had heard that term of course, and thought that I got it...but until I started drinking this ionized alkaline water, I really didn't get it. I'm totally stoked by this feeling of wellness and hydration produced by this ionized alkaline water.
