Get Some Spring Water Into Your Life
If you’re concerned about your health, then you definitely want to think long and hard about where you get your water.
Maybe you filter your water before you drink it because you don’t trust your municipal water system.
However, it’s really amazing when you think about what a vital ingredient water is and how little we think about it.
Around 70% of our bodies are made of water.
Water is one of the key cornerstones of life on Earth.
What if you started putting some intention into the whole issue of water in your life?
In the world of raw and wild foods, there are some wild characters.
One character that I really enjoy learning from is Daniel Vitalis.
Daniel started a website that basically serves as an online database of natural springs where people can go to harvest their own water.
You can find this site at www.findaspring.com.
The basic premise is simple: the purest water on Earth is available through certain extremely clean springs.
The water bubbles up from deep underground where it has been filtered and energized naturally by the Earth.
Unlike the water that has been treated and distributed through a municipal water system, fresh natural spring water is naturally purified. It is some of the best water you can drink.
It’s amazing how profound a juice fast can be for bringing new insights and possibilities into your life.
Just a few weeks back, I did a 12-day juice fast. During this fast, I thought a lot about water.
I was living off of water, tea and juice. So I was very connected to the water that sustained me and helped me thrive.
That’s when I started looking into various options for gathering the freshest purest water possible. I intuited that my city’s tap water and a Brita filter probably wasn’t the state-of-the-art when it came to high quality water.
My investigations led me to FindASpring.com, and from there, I scrounged around for some empty bottles.
After cleaning and disinfecting my bottle stash, I headed to the closest spring I found on FindASpring.com’s map.
I’m kidding, but only slightly.
The fact is, there’s a reason people like to have their water piped directly into their homes–it’s a heck of a lot less hassle than taking the time and energy to harvest your own water from fresh springs.
Most of us don’t live so close to springs.
And so, after a first trip just to check out the spring and verify its existence, I realized I’d need some bigger containers.
A carboy is a special type of container that is usually used in home brewing.
I found a couple 5-gallon glass Carboys at a brewing supply store where I live, and the next time I visited a spring, I was able to take a big batch of water home with me.
I can definitely tell a difference in the taste, and a home water test I ran on the water came back totally clean.
That doesn’t mean the spring is completely pure–home water tests aren’t professional grade, after all–but I feel comfortable drinking this water for sure.
More than anything, what I’m noticing from drinking spring water I harvest myself is that I have a deeper connection with the water I drink.
I’m aware that it’s precious, finite, not to be wasted.
In the modern world, we don’t have to see the guts of the engine behind so much of the lifestyle we enjoy.
We don’t have to actually plant, weed, harvest and ship the foods we consume.
We don’t have to assemble the televisions we watch.
We don’t have to generate our own power.
All this convenience comes at a subtle price, however.
By getting out in Nature and harvesting my own spring water from fresh springs, I’m discovering that there is a deep sense of security in tracing the thread between the water I drink and where it sprang from the Earth.
If you’re interested in deepening your health and your connection to the blessings that sustain us here on Earth, I heartily recommend you check out www.findaspring.com and go on an expedition to gather and drink fresh spring water.
If you’re interested in health, spring water is a major gateway into deeper levels of health, energy and wellbeing.
