You know how important it is to drink water if you want to stay healthy. You also know what qualifies as good water – that is alkaline water free of pollutants. But most people still don’t drink enough water, if they drink any at all. Why?
The Challenges to Drinking Healthy
We have been programmed to believe that we are too busy to take proper care of ourselves. We have to rush here and there throughout the day and at night we are too tired to take the time. We have also been taught to want instant gratification over long-term benefits. So when we are hungry or thirsty, we just go for what is most convenient. Read more...

It is important to get enough sleep every night so that we can stay healthy and function properly during the day. Everyone should be able to wake up in the morning feeling well rested and ready for the new day.
Too many people don’t, and there are a variety of reasons. I’m going to talk about one that many people probably don’t know much about. How light affects sleep. Read more... (886 words, 2 images, estimated 3:33 mins reading time)
Staying hydrated is important to me, so I make sure that my drinking water is clean and alkaline by filtering it at home and then I take it with me in a good water bottle if I’m not going to be home. The airport liquid restrictions make it so that I cannot do that if I travel by plane. When you get to airport security, liquids have to be gone. You can’t cram enough 3-ounce bottles of water into a 1-quart zip-top bag to last very long. Read more... (507 words, 2 images, estimated 2:02 mins reading time)
I have written before about the importance of hydration in the summer and how much water you should drink. Staying hydrated in the winter is just as important.
In the summer you sweat a lot because it is hot, especially if you are working outside when the sun is shining brightly. In the winter people often think that it isn’t as important to drink water because it isn’t anywhere near as hot outside. Just because it isn’t hot doesn’t mean you don’t need water. Read more...

You know that you are supposed to drink water, but do you know what factors can affect the quality of the water you drink, and how they affect your body?
I believe that water is the most important “nutritional supplement” that you can take. Like all nutritional supplements, you need to make sure that you have good quality and you want to know what’s in it. You know that you need a good water filter to address that concern. You don’t want to drink the chlorine and other contaminants that are in most of the water that is available. Read more... (584 words, 2 images, estimated 2:20 mins reading time)

Is Your Body a Mansion or a Shack? You Need a Water Filter

Your body is your house, the physical vessel in which you live all of your life. Would you rather that house be a mansion that provides you everything you need to live a full life or a shack that is falling down around you?
If you answered that you prefer a shack, then you can stop reading, get yourself a soda and a donut and enjoy the rest of your life.
If you prefer a mansion, then read on. Read more... (429 words, 1 image, estimated 1:43 mins reading time)
What benefits could you get from magnetic earrings? It is commonly accepted that magnets can improve blood flow, reduce inflammation, and promote relaxation. Are those effects going to seem all that significant applied to the earlobe? Probably not for most people. A magnetic earring might be a good choice if you recently had your ear pierced.
I prefer to look at how magnets affect the body from an energetic standpoint. The body’s energetic aura extends a long way from the body and is strong and easily detectable close to the skin, say within the first inch or two. When you wear magnetic jewelry, like a pair of magnetic earrings, they sit in that energetic field around your head. Read more... (324 words, 2 images, estimated 1:18 mins reading time)
A lot of people start their morning and their afternoon with caffeine. It used to be just coffee, and it is probably still to the most popular. High school and college kids, at least when I was there, would drink a can of Coke on the way to school. Now it’s all about energy drinks, some with excessively high caffeine content.
How much caffeine in coffee?
People have been drinking coffee for a long time. Coffee varies a great deal in how much caffeine it can contain depending on the beans and how they are blended. It can have from as little as 27mg of caffeine in an instant coffee up to 200mg of caffeine in the brewed coffees. Read more... (587 words, 2 images, estimated 2:21 mins reading time)
Matcha green tea is the tea used in the Japanese tea ceremony and literally means “powdered tea”.
The difference between matcha green tea and other green teas is that you consume the matcha tea leaves with the drink instead of just the water like with other teas. Because you consume the leaves you get a lot more of the nutritional components of the tea – more antioxidants, more vitamins and minerals, more fiber. More nutritional components, more nutritional benefits. Read more... (522 words, 2 images, estimated 2:05 mins reading time)
I can’t get through the Spring pollen season without my Jade GreenZymes.
Anytime you buy a product from someone you always wonder if they actually use the product themselves. I am an independent Nikken distributor and I do use the products myself. I decided to write this series of posts to talk about the products that I use myself, why I use them, and what benefits I believe I receive from them. Read more...
