It may not be coincidental that "heal" is a part of the word "health."
Our bodies are in a constant state of defense against all kinds of bacteria, viruses, parasites, and other microbes, as well as chemicals, and a wide variety of different toxins.
It is up to each of us to provide our body with what it needs to sustain its defense mechanisms and maintain a strong immunity against attack.
The good news is that when our immune system is functioning at its highest level it can fight off disease and potential system damage. Our body can heal itself when it has been given the proper elements necessary for good health.
The bad news is that modern society has saturated our environment with so many synthetics, chemicals, pollutants, and contaminants in our water, air, and soil, that what was once easy for the body to defend against has become increasingly more difficult.
The numbers of people afflicted by disease (i.e., heart attacks, cancer, diabetes, hypertensions, etc.) increases with each decade. And, though modern science works hard to advance new treatments and remedies, we have to ask if "drugs" are really the answer we're looking for?
If we don't stop and ask "Why?" we allow ourselves to become complacent to opportunities for poor health. When we ask "Why?" the answers point us in the direction of finding our own solutions and protections to minimize, if not totally alleviate becoming victims of disease and illness.
The three most important elements for life are: air, water, and food. The quality of those elements that enter our bodies will determine the strength of our immune systems and our body's ability to heal itself.
Fortunately, there is a wide variety of food selections from which to choose to sustain a healthy diet.
Unfortunately, with modern society's propensity for synthetics, additives, chemicals, drugs, and other toxins, our water and air supplies leave our bodies open and suseptible to more damage than ever before.
Our bodies are composed of over 70% water. Our organs are almost 90% water. So, when the body loses water our cells cry out for replenishing that loss.
Water carries essential nutrients throughout our system and removes toxins and waste from our bodies. Water is not incidental to our health. It is vital and the quality of the water we drink is critical for optimal health.
As consumers we have become more aware that our municipal waters are compromised. This has led to an explosion in the bottled water industry.
A great majority of the water that makes up this billion dollar industry is filtered tap water, with no regulation, monitoring, and quality-control administered.
The two questions that noone addresses are:
What kind of water is healthiest. And, what makes water healthy?
These are important questions that deserve answers.
Healthy water is not about brand names, additives, artificial sweetners, bottle designs, and marketing hype.
The water you drink should help your body function at its highest level. It should be clean, free of pollutantants, contaminants, herbicides, pesticides, and other chemicals and toxins. For those who prefer, it should have a pH level that is more alkaline than acidic.
Reverse osmosis is a water filtration process that removes contaminants from the water based on molecular size. Water is pushed through a semipermeable membrane and separated from the contaminants. The water molecules then pass though to the inside of the membrane and on to the reservoir for daily use. The rejected particles and contaminants are washed from the membrane and down the drain.
Many health pratctitioners (i.e., Dr. Mehmet Oz, the famed tv health specialist) recommendS alkaline water.
Water is made alkaline through a process that gets rid of the acid by changing the pH balance to a minimum alkalinity of 7.365pH. It is touted to boost your metabolism, helps your body absorb nutrients more effectively, and many claim it helps your body fight diseases and illnesses by fighting free-radicals and strengthening your immune system.
The "Fountain of Youth" that Ponce de Leon, the famed explorer, supposedly found may well have been a source of the purest water. That would give validation to the claims of many health experts that alkaline water helps prevent disease, slow bone loss, and slows down the aging process.
It should be recognized that water and the quality of water plays an impofrtant role in maintaining a healthy, efficiently running body.
This page sets the stage for the endorsement of products that address the issue of healthy water, clean air, and other health related issues. It points out that there are accessible and affordable options to insure your family's health.
Respiratory diseases, allergies, eye and skin disorders, and a host of other conditions can be directly linked to the pollutants and contaminants found in the air.
Have you ever thought about the chemicals that we clean with, the dirt and other contaminants that we track into our homes that reside in our carpets? Then, we use other chemicals to clean those offenders out of our carpets creating more toxins to live in our carpets and for us to continually breathe in.
These toxic elements are so pervasive that we hardly pay any attention to them almost casually accepting them as a part of the world we live in (like the California smog and the New Jersey Turnpike). We don't even think about how they might contribute to long-range damage our health.
What about those who work in nail salons or beauty parlors or auto shops constantly breathing in those toxic fumes?
Let's face it, we don't think about it because to do so makes us feel helpless. But, there are ways to minimize this exposure and protect ourselves and our families.
The best way to ensure that you have quality water and quality air is to have a quality filtration sytem in your home.
It is the best way to protect your family and insure that where you reside and where you spend so much of your time is the safest you can get.
Here, at Sunmak, as in everything that we do, we've done the research. And, we have chosen...
Coway is a globally acclaimed company with award-winning wellness appliances. They are known throughout the world for their superior quality, cutting-edge technology, and design.
Their extraordinary research and development teams are always ahead of the curve in technological innovation. This is evident in their reverse osmosis units, water alkalizing units, and air purification systems.
Coway's reverse osmosis process far surpasses every competitor in it's six-stage water filtration process. It is the only company whose reverse osmosis membrance eliminates impurities down to 1/1000,000th of a hair size.
Coway's six-stage purification process is the only system with this level of extensively staged filtration making it the most complete purification process in the water filtration industry.
The Coway alkalizing unit is the only one in the world offering "cold" alkaline water (most people with alkaline units have to refrigerate their water which, due to the time it takes to get cold, lessens the potency of the ionization.)
Coway's air filtration system has unparalleled stages of air purification eliminating everything from dust to viruses to influenza to the smallest microbes. It actually customizes the filters for its units.
Coway's commitment to superior quality water and air through its advanced technology reflect a corporate philosophy that is based on its customers' health as its priority.
Providing quality is Coway's path to customer loyalty. It is their path to providing superior quality air and water treatment alternatives for all consumers efficiently, effectively, and affordably.
