When I worked in the water and sewer department of a small town, I became aware of where our water comes from.  More importantly, how polluted it is, even though it has been treated and is considered “safe” to drink.

In our small town we were fortunate to have well water that needed no treatment to be legally safe.  At that time, we didn’t test for many of the substances that are now known to be toxic.  To be honest, many of them didn’t even exist back then.

However, many things have changed over the past 26 years since I left that town.

Much of what has changed, is that we now know there are hundreds of toxic substances that could be in your water, and probably are.

Unfortunately, the city water departments are not required to test for some of them.  Which means that little or no effort is made to remove them.

Even if your water comes from a well, and is legally safe to drink, it might smell and taste bad.  That’s on top of discoloring your toilet, shower and sinks.

Did you know that you are drinking other peoples prescribed medications? 

Yup, they get flushed down the toilet or sink, and flow through the sewer treatment plant into rivers and lakes. Rivers and lakes are where millions of people get their drinking water.

The water purification plant does NOT remove those drugs.  The same thing is true for thousands of chemicals that get dumped into our waterways.  These dangerous chemicals can be removed, but don’t expect your water department to do it for you.

Which is why I am going to spend a lot of time telling you about various drinking water problems, and how to protect your health.

Water filtering and water purity is a complicated subject, because there are so many problems to consider and deal with.

I will bring you the latest scientific studies and approved medical solutions and explain them in an easy to understand format.  I’ll use my experience to sort out the best ways to protect your health. 

More importantly, I’ll show you the practical steps you can take to drink pure water and stay healthy.

What do I know that the general medical community doesn’t? Plenty.

The scientific research has been done and proven for many medical issues that your doctor has never been trained for.  Once your doctor leaves med school, they are far too busy working to learn anything new.  That is, unless it is their specialty. 

Which brings us back to family doctors. They get less than one day’s training in nutrition.  They are taught how to diagnose illnesses and what drugs will treat those symptoms.  They are not taught how to keep you healthy, but rather how not to get sicker.

At a young age I realized that Doctors suffered the same illnesses that they were constantly treating patients for.

That lead me to believe that they just treated symptoms, and that it was the body that actually healed itself.

Another curious idea caught my attention. It was the placebo effect.

If the doctor gave you a placebo and you got well, that means that our mind and beliefs work in conjunction with the physical body to maintain our health.

That got me thinking, and believe me, I think a lot!

As a teenager I read the book: Edgar Cayce: The Sleeping Prophet where Edgar Cayce talks a lot about how to heal various diseases that modern medicine could not heal.

That book also confirmed my own personal experiences about the nature of reality. All of which NO ONE ever talked about. That was the 1960s. Today the inner dimensions of our personal reality is widely discussed.

Well, Edgar Cayce got me to read: Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda which also confirmed many of my personal experiences. It also lead me on a lifelong adventure of exploring what REALITY really is.

Let me just say that the majority of the people on earth, are utterly unaware of their potential. Let alone knowing how to reach that potential. For example, Yogananda mentions a woman that never eats, but loves to cook for her family.

Several authors have mention Yogis that are several hundred years old, but modern western society scoffs at such a thing. Perhaps that is because they weren’t raised as a Hindu, but as a Christian.

Many of those scoffing Christians fervently believe everything written in the Bible. Which clearly states that Methuselah lived to be over 900 years old.

There was a Chinese man, Li Ching-Yuen, that died at 256 years old.

Which brings me to the idea that: if one man can do it, then so can I, and so can you.

On this website, Full Stride Health, I intend to guide you to better health so that you can enjoy life no matter how old you are.
