Minimizing the Most Common Contaminants In Drinking WaterThe results may be rather alarming, depending on where you live. Here are three ways to reduce common contaminants in drinking water:
- You can reverse damage caused by build up of the contaminants in the body through gentle cleansing, such as epsom salt baths and a quality, organic, non-GMO greens drink. Ingredients like cilantro and sea greens are great for pulling heavy metals out of the cells. You can also purchase filters that will help to minimize, if not completely block the contaminants.
- If your budget is low, start with a kitchen sink filter, as the water that you drink is most important to have clean.
- Next, get filters on the showers. These are relatively inexpensive and will block contaminants from entering your body through your largest organ, your skin. If your budget is higher, getting a full house water filter is the way to go. The Environmental Working Group has also put together lists of water filters that you can search by filter type, technologies or by what contaminants that they filter out. You’ll see a link to this on their website, after you type in your zip code and choose the water provider that serves your area.
