Clean water is essential for good health, so ensuring that your water is free of contaminants is extremely important to healthy living. Whether it’s falling from the sky, pumped from the ground, delivered by the truckload or delivered from a water-treatment facility to your tap, all water carries a vibrational frequency. How can you improve the quality and vibration of your water?
A number of factors determine the vibrational frequency of water, including the conditions the water goes through before arriving at your tap and the water source (for example, a lake, the local aquifer that your well connects to or the water treatment process).
The vibration of water from a residential well is vastly different from the vibration of water processed in a water treatment plant. One reason for this is that the water from a well has a short life span—it’s consumed only once (from a well to the taps to a septic system in the ground)—whereas “city water,” or water recycled through a treatment plant, typically has several life spans, which causes frequencies to accumulate each time the water is treated.
City drinking water
If you live in a city, have you ever thought about how many times the water coming out of your tap has been recycled? Does recycling remove all impurities? Is there something more you need to do to ensure your water is clean and safe?
In recent years, there have been numerous news reports and scientific studies about the presence of estrogenic compounds (natural estrogens and synthetic chemicals that mimic natural estrogen) in waterways and drinking water and their potential harm to human health and aquatic life.1
At first, these claims focused only on birth control hormones found in “treated” water, but if you dig a little deeper, you will uncover a number of sources of estrogenic compounds, also referred to as endocrine-disrupting compounds in our water, including synthetic estrogens in crop fertilizer (e.g. atrazine); synthetic and natural estrogens from livestock, including dairy cows, which can be fed hormones to increase milk production; and an unknown number of industrial chemicals, such as the plastic additive bisphenol-A (BPA).
In addition to estrogenic compounds, traces of pharmaceuticals also appear in drinking water and sewage water, including antidepressants, painkillers, and antibiotics.
What are the long-term effects of these substances in our drinking water? Ironically, in the United States, for example, most pharmaceutical chemicals are not regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency. In other words, no governmental agency in that country regularly tests for pharmaceuticals in public drinking water.
Country drinking water
Now I don’t want to leave you with a false impression that country dwellers have the safest water either. The more rural the setting, the higher the chances are of livestock and industrial farming operations existing in the area. Country dwellers need to know about their local farming practices to understand which chemicals or compounds may potentially be seeping into the aquifers that supply water to residential wells.
For instance, many plant fertilizer and soil products contain treated bio-sludge, which also contains, of course, human waste. These bio-sludge products undoubtedly contain traces of pharmaceuticals as well. Take this example one step further and ask yourself, what happens to crops grown with soil treated with bio-sludge? It’s important to be aware of these issues so you can take steps to reduce your exposure to unwanted and dangerous substances.
Below are several things you can do to improve the quality and raise the vibration of the water in your home.
Whole-house sediment filters designed to remove dirt, sediment, rust particles and other particulates from city and well water improve water clarity, taste and odor, and they protect your home’s plumbing system (including other water treatment equipment) from damage and premature clogging due to sediment buildup.
Ultraviolet (UV) Light
Ultraviolet water purifiers are simple to use and they effectively destroy microorganisms in water. These systems are also often combined with a water filter to trap even more contaminants because UV light is capable of penetrating the cell walls of bacteria, viruses, molds, yeasts and parasites such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia, disrupting their ability to replicate, but they do not remove chlorine, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), heavy metals and other chemicals.
To maintain the effectiveness of a UV system, it is recommended that you replace the UV light annually.
Some benefits of UV systems include the following:
- They do not introduce any chemicals or by-products into your water.
- They do not alter the taste, pH or other properties of your water.
- They are not harmful to your plumbing and septic systems.
- They are easy and cost-effective to install and maintain without any special training.
If the water in your home is “hard,” that is, it is high in dissolved minerals such as calcium and magnesium, you should consider using a water softener. Hard water results in scale buildup on your fixtures, in your kettle and in water pipes, which restricts water flow. It can also coat heating elements, leading to power loss and increased electricity consumption. Soap doesn’t lather well in hard water, resulting in a residue on your hair and skin. A water softening system reduces the water hardness by replacing the minerals with sodium or potassium salts.
Reverse Osmosis plus Remineralization
- Reverse osmosis (RO) is a water purification process whereby water moves through specialized membranes to remove foreign contaminants, solid substances, large molecules and minerals, including lead.
- The downside of RO as a method for purifying drinking water is that healthful, naturally occurring minerals and trace minerals in water are also removed. These minerals not only provide a good taste to water, but they also serve a vital function in the body.
- When stripped of trace minerals, water can actually be unhealthful for the body. Yes, drinking “pure” water can be unhealthful because the fewer minerals we consume, the greater our risk for osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, hypothyroidism, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure and a long list of degenerative diseases generally associated with premature aging.
- The ideal water for the human body should be alkaline, and this requires the presence of minerals such as calcium and magnesium; for this reason, water that has been purified by reverse osmosis needs to be remineralized.
Some Reverse Osmosis water filter companies use an extra filter at the end of the RO process to remineralize the water with minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium which in turn naturally corrects the pH enough to reach a healthful alkaline state.
How to increase the vibrational frequency of water
The good news is we can increase the frequency of our water supplies by filtering it, rebalancing its pH, purifying it and remineralizing it.
Once we optimize the frequency of our water for consumption, we can enjoy the full benefits of hydration, detoxification, and cellular regeneration.
