Your Holy Health - Part 4 - Healthy Drinking
by Tonja Taylor
11/29/2019 / Health
Healthy drinking will improve your health more than you know, and what I mean has nothing to do with alcohol.
Here are three tips to help you easily and economically improve your health!
Drink good filtered water. Most people don’t have an artesian well of pure water in their back yards. If you do have a well, I recommend that you test the water, and even use a water filter. I definitely recommend using a filter on water from city systems, because the unfiltered water that comes out of the tap is not good for your body or brain!
You don’t have to believe me— just ask your local water company for a report on what is really in the water, even after it goes through all of those processes at the plant to cleanse it! Water is already a precious commodity and as the end of time as we know it approaches, good water is not going to be more plentiful.
Water is the most important thing you can ingest. The body can go several days without food, especially if one is led by the LORD to fast, but the body must have water or it starts dying within three days, from what I understand. Our bodies are over 70% water, and when we feel thirsty, our body is already doing without all the water it needs.
There are many types of water filters, but one of the most effective and economical I have found is the Zero Filter. It comes with a tester so you can test every week or so and make sure you are not consuming more TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) than six one-hundredths or so. Most of the time, while my Zero Water tester reads “000” or “005” (meaning it’s time to change the filter), the unfiltered tap water I test in a different cup reads “140” or more. One day, to my (almost) disbelief, I tested some unfiltered tap water, and the tester read “446”!
I am so glad the LORD led me to the Zero water filter!
Drink "cocktails"--NON-alcoholic. (Alcohol actually takes water out of your body.) No, I’m not advocating drinking alcohol—not at all. I personally never touch the stuff. What I mean by “cocktails,” comes from a health book I read years ago. This is made from fermented apples, and is very economical.
This was recommended to me years ago at a local health food store, and I’m so glad! The LORD knew my family and I needed this! I was having quite a few health challenges at the time. The “cocktail” is simply a mixture of one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, one tablespoon of honey, and 8 or more ounces of (filtered, please!) water.
It is sour and takes some getting used to, but you can add more honey and water to dilute the strong taste. What it does is help bring your body to an alkaline state, where germs have a hard time living and thus cannot cause sickness. When I started drinking the “cocktails” even once a day for a couple weeks (although the recommendation is 2-3 times a day), my digestion improved—I started having bowel movements 3-4
3. Kombucha, or "KT" or fermented tea, which is, in the best brands anyway, created entirely from organic teas, sugars, fruits, and perhaps other ingredients. Kombucha is created by a SCOBY, which is a "symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast," and dates back to ancient times. It actually has 1% or less of caffeine and 1% or less of sugar, so it can be a health aid to diabetics and others that don't tolerate caffeine well, or just don't want it.
Kombucha tea is full of good probiotics that raise one's immunity, and it has a natural energizing carbonation, which is not harmful like the carbonated water used in soft drinks. I used to make my own and buy it often. There are many brands and flavors. Some have a bit of added . Just ask the LORD to lead you to the right one(s) for you. He will!
These are tips I have personally proven, but of course this is not medical advice and I am not a nurse nor certified nutritionist. But these things have helped me and many people, and I believe they can help you in Your Holy Health!
