Something else has been identified as a potential health hazard in our water. To add to the cocktail of potential contaminants that flow out of taps across America, salt has recently been identified as the latest water worry.
How Our Soil Gets Salty
Increased use of road salt is a major cause, as is mining, fossil-fuel production and the use of some fertilizers. The salt seeps into the ground where excessive sodium dislodges the stable soil minerals such as calcium and potassium, changing the composition of the soil itself.
Of course, whatever is in the soil will end up seeping through to our water supply. The salty water eventually trickles through the layers of …
It’s that time of year again! The tinsel is packed away, the present buying frenzy is but a distant memory and our thoughts turn to New Year resolutions.
What Do You Want to Change?
It’s easy to be blasé about making resolutions, and lots of people don’t bother on the basis that if we want to change something, then we should get on and do it, instead of waiting for the “right” date in the calendar.
But that’s ignoring the special lure of resolution making. If you want to change something in your life and stick to it, then New Year is the perfect opportunity. New broom, clean room, fresh …

Detox is for January. We will reach those cold, post-Christmas days soon enough. Our glittery Christmas dress hung away, its sparkle dimmed at the back of the closet and the freezer filled with little vacuum packs of turkey.
But for now, the buzzword is Pretox.
Prepare Your Body
From now until the start of the Christmas frenzy is the perfect time to prepare your body for the onslaught of less sleep, more socializing, rich food and higher levels of alcohol than you perhaps usually consume.

Love nothing more than rustling up delicious food for friends and family? Enjoy dicing, slicing and sautéing as much as some people love watching a good movie? Can you spot the ripest tomato in the bowl at 20 paces?
If you answered yes to any of these questions (and even if you didn’t!), did you know that a water ionizer in the kitchen is perfect for food lovers?
A Raw Deal?
Let’s start with the raw ingredients. Organic food is free of herbicides and pesticides, but it costs more to produce and so the price of buying organic tends to be higher. So you buy regular produce …
We all need to drink around 2 liters of water every day to stay properly hydrated. That still applies to anyone with a sedentary lifestyle or sitting at a desk job. But sometimes, our bodies need more.
A Thirst for Fitness!
If you play sports, take an exercise class, go hiking or enjoy any of the fantastic fitness opportunities available to most of us — you need to increase the amount of water you drink.
To be fair, that’s common knowledge. After all, our bodies tell us that we’re thirsty, so we sip some water. But why? What happens inside our body that means we should drink more? …
Don’t even think about hitting the beach or lakeside this summer without making sure you have the essentials. In sun-soaked Australia, a popular health campaign recommended that people should “Slip, Slop, Slap.” In other words: “Slip on a shirt, slop on the sunscreen and slap on a hat.”
Sun Safety and Water Ionizers
That original advice has now been extended to “Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek, Slide.” The last two additions prompt us to seek out shade and slide on some sunglasses as well, to make sure we stay safe in the sun. It’s great advice! While the sun can equal lots of fun and …

When we think of anti-aging, most people conjure up a plethora of creams, potions or outright notions. However, aging more youthfully or what I refer to as “Youthing” begins not merely on the outside of the body, but the inside of the body.
When you think about how the body responds to healthy, nutrient-dense foods, water and other healthful choices, you can’t deny the obvious fact, that keeping our cellular machinery intact is key not just to health…but to ultimately aging younger.
Increasing one’s health span and longevity that leads to a more youthful looking you, begins with your diet – what you feed your cells along with implementing other lifestyle …
