47 Steps to Healing ALS

Step 7: Clean Water 

What is wrong with tap water? 

  • Tap water is tested only for a few dozen toxins. It is not tested for, nor does it filter out many pesticides, petroleum products, prescription drugs, birth control pills, over the counter medications
  • Tap water often contains fluoride, which is a neurotoxin

What about Well Water?

You need to test Well water to find out if it is contaminated

  • Water test link: watercheck.com
  • Isn’t my refrigerator filter good enough? (see below)

What about my refrigerator filters?

  • Refrigerator filters remove only about half of heavy metal contaminants and none of other types of  contaminants such as some pharmaceuticals.

What about Brita and similar filters?

  • Brita filters remove only about half of contaminants and none of some types of  contaminants.

What about Bottled Spring Water?

  • If there is a natural spring near you that is tested regularly this is a great option. FindASpring.com has listings of springs that are tested.
  1. Among bottled water bottled spring water is your best choice BUT….. The issue is that there are nano-plastics in a large percentage of bottled water. They did a study in 4 major cities and found plastics in 25% of bottled water.
  2. The bottles themselves also leach chemicals, BPAs and other chemicals, especially when heated. You have no control over what happens in a hot shipping container or truck that gets over 130 degrees in the summer.
  3. Recommendation for Spring Water: Mountain Valley Spring Water or Poland Spring and get the hard plastic not soft bottles.

What about reverse osmosis?

  1. Reverse osmosis filters remove ALL the good minerals along with the bad minerals. This means you are drinking dead water. Reverse Osmosis is necessary in some cases in areas where the water is very bad.
  2. If you use reverse osmosis water, you MUST add good minerals to all the water you drink. (ReMyte or AussieTraceMnerals.com or Nutramedix Deep Ocean Trace Mineral capsules or MorningStar Minerals Energy Boost 70 Concentrate Fulvic Minerals) to all water you are drinking 

Berkey and other Gravity filters.

  • Independent Labs confirmed Berkey carbon filters get out 99.9 percent of most contaminants with the carbon filters and 95% of the fluoride with the additional fluoride filters. Berkey may not be available given an ongoing lawsuit.
  • AlexaPur filter is a Berkey filter relabeled
  • ProOne replacement filters are an excellent alternative also and fit into Berkey and AlexaPur filters.

What about Structured Water

  • Structured water is water that goes through a vortex, similar to a stream

What about Whole House filters

Things to keep in mind:

  • Symptoms of Abnormal dry skin in face and ears can be most of the time dehydration or deficiency of certain essential oils.
  • If your skin is dehydrated you are profoundly dehydrated in you internal organs, which is critically important to carry nutrient into your cells and carry toxins out.

Best way to drink water:

  • Ideally 2 ounces of mineralized structured water every 15 min throughout the day.
  • Stop 30 min before each meal and resume 30 min after each meal to avoid diluting hydrochloric acid and digestive enzymes in the stomach.
  • Reminder: distilled and reverse osmosis water removes the minerals from the water. This means not only do you need to replace minerals (see above) but also this water is not as hydrating as mineralized water and structured water (see above).

Water can be structured with a vortex spinner.

Inexpensive Action items:

  • Consider getting a Berkey Filter
  • Get a Shower Filter Even if this is a carbon filter with limited filtration with hot water, yet it is better than no filter at all

Check for Understanding and Completion of Step 7:

  1. ____Why do I not want to drink tap water? Write down 6 reasons.
  2. ____Why is a Brita filter not a good option?
  3. ____Why is reverse osmosis not necessarily the best option for water? 
  4. ____ I watched the testing analysis video of the Berkey filter. What contaminants did he look at that surprised you?
  5. ____ I watched the December 18 2022 presentation by Leo on Sunday recordings and noted things to add to the above.Presentation by17 ALS Reversals video. 
  6. ____ I am no longer using tap water nor Brita filtered water nor refrigerated filtered water. If I am using bottled water temporarily I am looking into purchasing at a minimum a basic Berkey or equivalent gravity filter and a shower filter. I can look into more expensive options at a future date.

If you have checked all boxes, Congratulations! You have completed Step 7!
