Spring Water vs. Reverse Osmosis

Recently I created some controversy with a video on a particular product of “unprocessed water” that some people took personally, which was not the point of the video. The essence of the discussion however revolves around water and finding a pure source that still fits within your budget while maintaining a health lifestyle.

As a raw foodist I still believe the best source of water for proper hydration and mineral content is from fresh fruits and vegetables including juicy fruits and fresh coconut water. When you are consuming water rich foods your body will obviously require less actual drinking water as well.

Right now my fiancee and I are in Costa Rica, as we have been for the past 4 months, enjoying local produce and young coconuts daily.

I want my readers and viewers to take the responsibility of health into their own hands and not rely solely on others to tell them what to buy and how to live.

Critical thinking is key with regard to a healthy lifestyle and mind.

I’m releasing an interview I did recently below with my friend Wayne Gendel from Forever Healthy in Toronto. We covered some interesting points about water, including:

– Is spring water safe?
– What is the best way to purify water?
– Can you assimilate rock minerals in spring water?

Wayne and I will be doing a teleconference soon for people who want to know more about water and the best purification methods, so stay tuned for that. Make sure you’re subscribed to the list for an announcement.
