Following from the last article on the truth behind the fluoride in our drinking water, I wanted to share this second part, providing tips and advice on how to avoid ingesting fluoride as much as possible, and how to detox the fluoride that has built up in your body.
Why should we avoid and detox ourselves of fluoride?
Last week’s article detailed the horrifying truth behind the sodium fluoride that is added to much of our drinking water. The naturally occurring calcium fluoride is worrying enough over time, but we are exposed to synthetic by-products of manufacturing processes….i.e. Toxic Waste. Consuming this fluoride on a regular basis can weaken our immune systems, damage the liver and kidneys and impair cognitive ability. The symptoms of fluoride toxicity are wide ranging, with infants and children being particularly susceptible.
How to avoid Fluoride – Drinking Water
The first way is through controlling our drinking water. Do not be fooled into thinking that bottled water is a safe alternative to tap water. It is not. Bottled water most commonly contains fluoride too – and it is not a requirement that they state this on the label.
Most regular water filters do not have the ability to remove fluoride either. Once it is in our water it is very difficult to remove.
Reverse Osmosis (RO) is widely thought to be the most effective way to remove fluoride, around 90% effective. There are downsides to this method though. It is very costly to install a system at home. There is an option to use commercially available RO systems to filter your water. A huge amount of water is wasted in the RO process, with anywhere between 3 to 8 gallons of water being used to create 1 gallon of 90% fluoride free water.
Another alternative is to try distilled water. This can be done at home through a system of condensing. The resulting water is extremely clean if done correctly, but it lacks structure and essential minerals that are found in regular water. If using either of these two options it is essential that you supplement your diet to ensure you are receiving the minerals that your body relies on to function.
