What’s in your drinking water?

Have you ever stopped to think what’s in the water you’re consuming?

Why would you care anyway…water is water and does the same thing, right? Wrong!

According to Michelle Tempongko Jones, it’s not.

She is a naturopath, herbalist, nutritionist, iridologist, anti-ageing practitioner and wellness coach.

Of course the uses for water remain the same, but not its effect when consumed.

All bottled water have different levels of properties, as well as tap water, depending what area it is from.

Perfect water should have high alkaline, highly energised water, high in anti-oxidant to slow down the aging process, while increasing the oxygen availability to the body.

With water making up 75 percent of an adult’s body and 80 – 90 percent of babies, perfect water is important.

Most people overlook this, and continue to consume more acidic, oxidated water without realising it.

It’s actually a factor to many lifestyle diseases.

In PNG’s first ever water lecture yesterday, Jones highlighted how to measure up your water.

“Find out what’s in the food and water you’re putting into your body if you know, you have the opportunity to live longer. In this day and age, there is no excuse not to know what’s going on and take care of yourself,” she said.
