There's a dirty little secret in the water filtration world -- one that is rarely discussed.
Water filtration systems of all kinds have their limitations. Filters quickly lose efficiency, they don't filter out microplastics and pharmaceutical waste, and we don't know how they perform against the thousands of different toxins now found in municipal water supplies all over the world.
There is one way to get pure, clean water the whole family can drink and that's what I'm going to share with you in this blog post.
My kids make fun of me because I bring my own water to restaurants now! 💧 😂
Seriously, look at the picture below and you can see the sketchy white particles floating into the tap water from the ice. 😬
Mmmmmm... ice slime! Which one would you drink?
It may seem a little extreme at first, but seriously how many parts per billion (ppb) of toxins are acceptable to drink?
For years I thought the reverse osmosis filtration unit under my kitchen sink was providing my family with pure, clean drinking water.
Sadly, I was mistaken!
What I didn't know at the time is that there are all sorts of different toxins in our water supply, and most regular water filters don't remove them all.
Even filtered water (including Berkey water systems) can be a major source of toxin exposure for your family.
The good news is that cleaning up your water source is one of the quickest ways to safely and painlessly speed up healing.
In fact, for kids with any kind of chronic health issues, there are numerous benefits associated with switching your water source.
The switch helps their guts heal quickly and along with the appropriate support elements helps symptoms improve within days to weeks.
In this email, I'm going to share with you a little-known secret about how to get pure, clean drinking water for your whole family -- without spending a fortune on expensive water filters that don't cut it.
If you haven't done it yet, it's worth the time to go and check what is in your municipal water.

Then leave a comment below let me know what you found.
There's been an exponential rise in toxin exposures over the last 20 years and these are making their way into our water supply.
A perfect example is glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup, which is now present in 75% of our air and water samples.
What I've learned is that most water filtration systems will claim to remove this and other toxins.
But, they do so using membranes and/or a mechanical filtration process. The problem is the more water you run through the filter, the more "clogged" it gets and the less efficient it becomes.
All water filtration systems quickly go from removing 99% of the contaminants that it tests for to downwards of 70% once the first 100 gallons have run through the system.
For a family of 4, this will happen pretty quickly.
Most companies don't disclose this and if they do, it's buried in a report on their website somewhere you'll never find. This also doesn't account for the thousands of other toxins they don't test.
According to Sinclair Kennally and Michael Spandel, my colleagues and the founders of Detox Rejuvenation, "Even trace amounts of chemicals and heavy metals in our water can add extra work to our body’s daily burden, causing brain fog, decreased energy, inflammation, and disrupting our natural repair processes."
🧒🏽 In children, this can look like inattention, hyperactivity, impulsivity, meltdowns, aggression and other chronic symptoms.
So, what can we do?
Here's the secret... The best way to remove toxins from your water is by water distillation.
Water distillation is a simple process that involves heating water to its boiling point and then collecting the resulting steam in a separate container. The water goes through what is called a "phase change" and is superior to mechanical filtration.
As the water boils and turns to steam, impurities such as glyphosate, microplastics, pharmaceutical waste, industrial toxins, fluoride, chlorine, bacteria, and other toxins are left behind, leaving you with pure, clean, distilled water.
This method has been used for centuries to purify water and it's still the gold standard.
Switching to distilled water requires a simple countertop water distillation unit like this one 👇.
I use the Mega Home Water Distiller because it's the most reliable one on the market. I've tested out a couple of cheaper ones, and they only lasted for about a year, while my Mega Home is still going strong.
Test it out yourself.
Distill your filtered water for a week and see what you find in the bottom of the distiller tank! I think you'll be surprised (and probably grossed out, too)!
Take a look at what's in my "filtered" water! Yuck! 😩
What is that weird blob in the bottom? Anyone want to guess? 🧐
What really grosses me out is that I was bathing and showering in that (we've since done whole house solutions, too).
What's also surprising... your body knows when water isn't pure. Many parents report their children don't "like" water and don't drink much.
This usually changes when families switch to distilled water. Your pets will also notice the difference and drink more water, too.
You're probably also wondering about minerals.
There's a myth that's been perpetuated for many years that you must have minerals in your water.
Minerals are essential, but not those minerals. The minerals in water aren't bio-available -- they clog pipes!
The truth is the minerals that are most bio-available and easily absorbed come from your food, not your water.
Because our soil has been robbed of minerals for many years, adding bio-available minerals is a great addition. Here's one we recommend at Detox RejuveNation called Mineral Matrix.
It contains contains Fulvic and Humic Acids which provide a plant-derived source of 73 ionic trace minerals that support cellular performance, gastrointestinal function, nutrient absorption, and the body’s detoxification pathways

Or if you have any questions. And then let me know what happens!!! Post your distiller tank photos, too!
✅ This is a true pro-tip.
For real... this is the first step all of our clients take at Detox RejuveNation because it makes such a big difference.
If you're ready to help your child reclaim their health, apply for a Pediatric Toxicity Assessment now and let's see if it's a good fit to work together.
And just maybe, like me, you'll end choosing to bringing your own glass of water when you eat out, too.
