The number one thing that I tell my clients and just about everyone else is to first and foremost DRINK MORE WATER! Take your body weight, divide it in half…that equals approximately how many ounces of water your body needs each day. We can all benefit from drinking more water, but before you go chugging water from the tap or even from most bottled water, know that there is a known toxin that may be lurking in it.
It has been established that fluoride has the ability to alter your endocrine function, yet this fact is being ignored by the agencies and associations that continue to promote the practice of water fluoridation. Consuming it internally allows this known toxin into our delicate tissues and puts our bodies at very serious risks. I never knew how damaging fluoride was until I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and started learning more about how improper foods, lifestyle habits, un-managed stress, and environmental toxins take a toll on our health. It is beneficial to avoid fluoride as much as possible not just for the health of your thyroid, but for the health of your overall body. Here are a few ways:
Most importantly, get active. Call your town to find out if your water supply is fluoridated, and express your concern for it. Some towns do NOT fluoridate! Write letters, attend local meetings, spread the word to others…let’s all work towards getting this harmful toxin OUT of our precious water supply.
You, your family, pets and plants deserve the best water there is!
