Problems with Commonly Used Water

Both tap and bottled water come from surface and ground water sources.  Surface sources include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs and wells.  We would never drink water from a lake or stream because we know it is very likely contaminated.

On the other hand, groundwater created from rain, snow, sleet and hail soaks into the ground. It goes through the public water filtration system. The water is filtered through layers of permeable rock, clay, gravel and sand. The last step is to add in fluoride and chlorine.

tap water

Pumped into the tap, the water is accessible for drinking and serves many other purposes.  As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it can pick up contaminants such as rust, parasites, VOCs (volatile organic compounds), lead, parasites and other waterborne diseases.

 

 

Is bottled water safe?

 

Nowadays, many people consume bottled water for convenience.  But is bottled water safe?  Is it a healthier alternative to tap water? You decide.  Bottled water is pricey compared to tap water,and it varies dramatically in quality.  An estimated 40 to 70% of bottled water is no better than tap water.  A pretty label affixed to the bottle implies the water inside the bottle is as natural as that of mountain spring or glacier, but how true that is, is for you to find out.

 

 

 

Danger of plastic bottles

Heat increases the release of chemicals from the plastic bottles. Due to transportation from one city to another, how long the water has been stored in the bottle is unsure of. As the plastic breaks down over time, BPA (Bisphenol Acid) is released into the water held in the polycarbonate bottles, particularly when the bottle is heated (especially in a heated car/van) or repeatedly washed. There are harmful effect of BPA to the body.

Dr Theodore Baroody, D.C., N.D., Ph.D. Nutrition and author of the classic book, Alkalize or Die states that “One glass of ionized water can hydrate your body better than gallons of any other water”.

Chilled Sour Plum Infusion with Osmanthus Flower


Chilled Sour Plum Infusion with Osmanthus Flower Recipe

Ingredients :

  • 5 to 6 Sour Plum (suanmei)
  • 20-25 pieces sliced dried hawthorn fruits (shanzha pian)
  • 5-6 pieces sliced dried licorice root (gancao)
  • 3 pieces of tangerine peel (chenpi)
  • 4 big cups 9.5 Kangen water
  • 1 piece of honey rock sugar to taste
  • 2 Tbsp of dried osmanthus blossoms (guihua)

 

1. Place the sour plums, hawthorn fruits, licorice root, and tangerine peel in a sieve and rinse them well under running 9.5 Kangen water.

2. Shake them dry and place them in a pot. Pour 4 big cups of 9.5 Kangen water over the dry ingredients and let them soak for at least an hour to soften and extract the flavor.

3. Bring the pot to a full boil. Then, lower the heat to a gentle simmer for about 1 hour. Add in rock sugar and simmer the infusion until the sugar melts; taste and add more if you want.

4. Add the osmanthus blossoms last and turn off fire so that the flavors can steep together. Let the infusion cool to room temperature.

5. Chill it overnight to allow the flavors to develop. Strain and add cold water to make 4 cups, or to taste. Serve chilled.

I simply love this chilled sour plum infusion with osmanthus flower. It’s refreshing and delicious. A slice of licorice root has natural anti-inflammatory properties. However, a possible side effect of licorice root is high blood pressure. If you are having this symptom, go easy with the licorice root.
