How Healthy is Your Water?
By Christine Dreher, CCN, CCH

The use of pesticides and herbicides has become so excessive that they are now commonly found in household tap water and bottled water with alarming frequency. Most of our municipal water treatment facilities do not remove VOC’s (synthetic chemicals) and typically consist only of sand bed filtration and disinfection, like a standard swimming pool filter. Once we realize that everything that goes down the drain, on our lawns, on our agricultural fields or into the environment by any means eventually winds up in the water we drink, we begin to see just how vulnerable our water supply really is. Children are even more sensitive to chemicals and toxins from drinking and bathing water because many of the crucial defense systems that help to protect adults from disease are not fully developed yet in children.

The Natural Resources Defense Council report has concluded that, "therefore, while much tap water is indeed risky, having compared available data, we conclude that there is no assurance that bottled water is any safer than tap water." There are no government standards that require bottled water to be any better, purer or safer than tap water. Most bottled water is bottled and sold within the same state to avoid federal regulations. Also, plastic water bottles are one of the biggest polluting industries in the U.S. According to recent data, over 60,000,000 plastic bottles are produced, transported and disposed of every day in the U.S. alone.

In the following article I describe the dangers of using tap water in our homes and why bottled water may not be any better. I also include my personal recommendations to ensure that your bathing and drinking water is healthy, free from chemical contaminants and balanced with traces of the Earth’s natural trace minerals.

Cracking the Code – The Vitamin Code
By Garden of Life

Recent trends show that health conscious consumers are going "beyond organic" and looking for the numerous health benefits associated with raw foods and products. After three decades of research, a scientific breakthrough has yielded the first line of raw multivitamins called Vitamin Code, a vast improvement upon vitamins that are heated, treated and often stuffed with food powders. Validated by scientific research, The Vitamin Code is an exciting discovery linked to a Nobel Prize winner, a determined biochemist, and an escape from the Iron Curtain in the 1950s.

Skin Care Wake-up Call
by Myra Michelle Eby – MyChelle Dermaceuticals

Most consumers believe that their favorite skin care products are safe. They trust that manufacturers have their best interests in mind and would not expose them to harmful ingredients. There is also a blind faith among consumers that if a product were harmful, it wouldn’t be allowed on the shelves. Moreover, “natural” is a label that is perceived to be synonymous with the term “safe.” Yet, no pre-market safety testing for cosmetics is required by the federal government. Meantime, no legal definition for words like “natural” exists for cosmetics. It is truly buyer beware. Myra describes which chemicals can be toxic in skin care products and discusses healthy alternatives.

Ants Be Gone! - Natural Recipe for Getting Rid of Ants

The following information was forwarded to me from a friend of a friend with an ant problem. I thought I would share it with you as a natural way to rid your house of ants.

“Since my neighbors nearly killed my dog last night by spraying for ants at their house (the fumes drifted over and Foley was/is hives from nose to tail and on Benadryl now), I thought I'd share the recipe I use to get rid of the lil' buggers. It will only kill the ANTS...not everything or everyone else in the doggoned house! Found this on one of my bird websites, as I need to be extremely careful what products I use around my Macaw, Ripley. Works GREAT!!!”
