Probiotics: Powerful Depression-Fighters

Probiotics - Nature's Depression-FightersProbiotics play a huge role in almost every aspect of your health, from digestion and elimination of wastes to immune function.

Recent research has shown probiotics are vital for proper brain and nervous system development and function. Indeed, the combination of the following appear to be driving skyrocketing autism rates in children as well as indigestion, poor quality of sleep and depression we’ve observed in all age groups in recent decades:

1. Heavy metal toxicity, vaccines, mercury fillings, air pollution
2. Disruption of gut flora, due to all fruits and vegetables being so thoroughly washed that all naturally occurring probiotics are mostly removed
3. Preservatives in foods
4. Consumption of antibiotic-laden meats and
5. Personal medical reasons

While many ‘mental disorders’ are actually inventions aimed at lining the pockets of Big Pharma, some are quite real and devastating to those who experience them. Take depression, for instance. Plenty of people have to deal with this at one time or another in their lives.

A scientific review published in Hungary observed:
1. Inflammation, among other factors, may be involved. One line of studies has shown that depression is frequently associated with manifest gastrointestinal inflammations…
2. Depression may be a manifestation of a chronic inflammatory syndrome.
3. A primary cause of inflammation and depression may be the dysfunction of the “gut-brain axis”. Your gut and your brain are closely linked. They’re even formed from the same cells in the fetus. The health of your gut depends heavily on having the right kind and balance of micro-organisms.

Gut health is so important that it affects babies before they’re even born. When the mother has an imbalance or lack of essential microflora, she makes less of the essential B-vitamins needed for nervous system development. Further, she’s less able to absorb nutrients and dispose of wastes, setting the stage for fetal mal-nourishment and toxicity. Birth defects, retardation and other issues may be the result.

After birth, the baby is supposed to be exposed to flora in the birth canal and then in the mother’s first milk. But what happens when the mother is already deficient or unbalanced herself? Then, when baby drinks water or is bathed in water that contains flora-killing chemicals (such as chlorine, chloramines and fluoride), baby may never get the chance to establish the healthful bacterial colonies he needs to be healthy and develop normally. A newborn suffering from colic or thrush is generally suffering from a lack of beneficial flora in the gut. How will he escape these problems if he doesn’t have a source of flora?

All of these factors combine to ruin the health and future of children and of adults. Depression is just one consequence of many.

The take-away here is this: If you want to live a ‘well-balanced’, happy, healthy life, you need to make sure your gut flora are in a state of happy balance themselves.

The two MOST important steps you can take are:

1. Replace your flora with a broad-spectrum, totally natural (non-GMO) probiotic supplement. To address both flora and any inflammation caused by other issues, I take our Inner Garden and Rest Easy (Turbocharged Turmeric) probiotics.
2. Stop drinking toxic, acidic or dead water. Reverse osmosis water is dead and acidic, lacking the natural minerals. Unfiltered tap water or water filtered by low-cost filters certainly contains fluoride, chloramines and probably other nasties that can damage your flora and other things in your body. Don’t compromise with low-cost, inefficient water filters and settle for partial solutions. Remember, toxic elements like fluoride, arsenic and other heavy metals ACCUMULATE in one’s body. This is why so many older people and even the generation Xers are suffering from all kinds of “old age diseases” – another term for the accumulation of acid waste and heavy metals and the failure to drink and to bathe in clean water in order to FLUSH out the toxins on a DAILY BASIS.

I hope you find this information of use and that you will take action to protect and improve your health, happiness and longevity.

Swimming In Pesticides? Healthy Alternative

In Europe chlorine has not been used in pools for 25 to 50 years! Finally Americans are becoming aware of the dangers of swimming in chlorinated pools! Unfortunately, copper and silver systems and the salt systems are not healthy either. When one swims in a copper or silver pool, one is basically swimming in PESTICIDES. Don’t be fooled by the salt systems, as they are chlorine systems, splitting salt (sodium chloride) into sodium and chloride. Page down for my healthy alternative…..

Chlorine and Birth Defects

While you may not be planning to have a baby in the near future, the data presented here should definitely make you think twice about taking tap water, a shower or a bath without removing chlorine or its byproducts.

Toxic Fluoride

In past newsletters, I have shared with you the results of my research into the toxicity of fluoride. New research data has surfaced that shows links between fluoride and ADD, ADHD, hyperactivity, and learning disabilities. How does this work? Many of you may not realize that the blood-brain barrier of a fetus is permeable, because their brains are growing and developing. When the mother ingests fluoride during her pregnancy, that fluoride crosses the fetal blood-brain barrier.

Final Proof On Brain Damage From Drinking Water

Who in their right mind would risk brain damage, lowering their child’s intelligence in order to reduce a small amount of tooth decay, for which the evidence is very weak and extremely controversial?

Indian study proves that fluoride consumption causes brain, neurological damage

At Home Water Filtration

The system that remove toxins down to non detectable levels!

The first part of the system is an Earth Core™ water conditioner.  It is an Electro-Mechanical Water Conditioner (NOT a magnet nor a chemical system). The conditioner creates wetter & softer water through the addition of negative electrons and by “restructuring” the water, so that the water filters last longer, as well as protecting all household appliances that are connected to the water source. It does this by preventing and removing limescale build up as well as algae growth.

The second part of the system consists of a 3-tank multi-media system that removes the fluoride, arsenic, chlorine, chloramines and heavy metals without removing the beneficial alkaline minerals.

Each tank has a specific function to remove  specific targeted toxic elements.

One would hope that the cities that fluoridate the water would use a clean pharmaceutical grade fluoride as their source.  However, what they use is a industrial waste – “chemical soup” called hydrofluorosilicic acid, resulting from waste acids from the metal plating industries and the Florida phosphate industries’ waste products.  This form of fluoride has been fully dissolved in solution, making it extremely difficult to remove. [Prozac, a psychiatric drug is 94% Fluoxetine, a pharmaceutical fluoride compound].

The first tank is a manganese dioxide mineral tank. This mineral bonds with the fluoride and arsenic compounds to make a larger particle.

The second tank is made from a special material called Alumina (not aluminum). This material takes out heavy metals and will remove aluminum.

The third tank is made from activated coconut charcoals which remove most of the organic materials as well improving taste and flavor. The same tank also has a large quantity of KDF that further removes heavy metals and help maintain a bacteria free environment.

The 3-tank system removes fluoride at the +/-80% rate. [Custom built units can be made so that the percentage can be higher. The cities are starting to use different types of treatment so that a more acidified fluoride can be added, which is significantly harder to remove.

Therefore,  we always use actual water tests for that city so that you are not not dealing with “generalities,” but know what is in your water and that our filters remove the fluoride (and other issues).  Just because the contaminants are removed successfully in one city, it does not mean that they will be removed successfully in another city, due to the different qualities of water.

Water testing totally exposes all challenges.  We have a water testing lab that we have been working with for many years that we will refer you to.  They will perform a 93 item water test for you that will tell you everything  you need to know.  We pass our wholesale cost on to you for this water test.

The additional Ideal Earth Water Under the Sink System is added to the Ideal Earth Water Whole House system to remove any remaining fluoride down to non-detectable levels.

For people who are in apartments or can only fit a small water filtration system under their sink this double tank system with a prefilter works perfectly!

Removes chlorine, chloramines,  heavy metals and chlorine by-products with special emphasis on fluoride, and arsenic,  to NON-DETECTABLE levels. This is the only filter on the market that is able to remove these toxic chemicals without removing the naturally occurring alkaline minerals.

Filter last up to 7-10 years with automatic backflushing system and only a minimal sediment filter replacement once a year.

This system is usually installed in the kitchen with a separate faucet. This is a big system, containing

  • First tank weighing 36 pounds, which removes fluoride and heavy metals
  • Second tank weighing 20 pounds, which removes volatile organic compunds, chlorine, chloramines
  • T-valve
  • Faucet
  • Seven feet of water line
  • Prefilter
  • Postfilter plus bracket
  • Instructions

The Ideal Earth Water Under the Sink System provides tasty, healthy drinking and cooking water at the kitchen sink.  This allows us to remove fluoride to non-detectable levels, plus “polish” the water to further give one the highest quality water possible, while keeping the wholesome minerals that make water healthy.

If you want to have truly healthy water from the tap without the toxic additives from the city and still have all of the minerals that belong in it, call me.

Fluoride Removal Material

Activated alumina is made of aluminium oxide (alumina; Al2O3), the same chemical substance as sapphi

Activated Alumina Activated alumina is made of aluminium oxide (alumina; Al2O3), the same chemical substance as sapphire and rubies (but without the impurities that give those gems their color). It is manufactured from aluminium hydroxide by dehydroxylating it in a way that produces a highly porous material; this material can have a surface area significantly over 200 m2/g. Activated alumina has a very high surface-area-to-weight ratio. That means it has a lot of very small pores, almost like tunnels, that run throughout it. It has large capacity of absorption, high surface area, high mechanical strength and thermal stability. Activated alumina is used widely in chemical, petrochemical and fertilizer industries as desiccant, absorbent, catalyst carrier, and as a filter of fluoride, arsenic and selenium in drinking water.

Catalyst application Activated alumina is used for a wide range of adsorbent and catalyst applications including the adsorption of catalysts in polyethylene production, in hydrogen peroxide production, as a selective adsorbent for many chemicals including arsenic, fluoride, in sulfur removal from gas streams (Claus Catalyst process).

Desiccant* Use as a desiccant, it works by a process called adsorption. The water in the air actually sticks to the alumina itself in between the tiny passages, as the air passes through them. The water molecules become trapped so that the air is dried out as it passes through the filter. This process is reversible, and if the alumina desiccant is heated to about 200C it will release all of the water stored in it. This process is called regenerating the desiccant.

Desiccant* a substance that promotes drying (e.g., calcium oxide absorbs water and is used to remove moisture)

Fluoride absorbent Activated alumina is also widely used to remove fluoride from drinking water. In the US, there are widespread programs to fluoridate drinking water. However, in certain regions, such as the Jaipur region of India, there is enough fluorine in the water to cause fluorosis. Activated alumina filters can easily reduce fluoride levels from 0.5ppm to less than 0.1ppm. Note: Maximum contamination level that cities can add fluoride up to is 4ppm, yet, in Jaipur, India, 0.5 ppm is causing fluorosis! Therefore, the reports that state that 0.85ppm is sufficient to make 25% of the population get fluorosis is most likely true.

Chemical Free Water Conditioner

Earth Core Water Conditioner

  • Restructures Water  For No Lime Scale Build Up
  • Makes Water Wetter & Softer Eliminating The Need For Chemicals
  • Extends The Life Of All Major Appliances

What is a water conditioner?

It makes the water softer and wetter.  It gives better tasting water that is healthier to drink.  In addition, it protects the pipes and appliances from limescale build up, which is the primary reason for equipment failure. (Hot water heater, dishwasher,  washer, water filters clogging…etc.)

Water conditioning that softens water without the use of chemicals or salt!

The EarthCore™ Electro-Mechanical Water Conditioner

is not a standard salt softener nor is it a filter.

This is a lifetime water conditioning system for Residential, Industrial, Aquaculture, and Agricultural use.

The EarthCore™ Water Conditioner is a one piece, self contained Electromechanical Catalytic Water Conditioner.  Its venturi effect core scrubs flowing water in a manner similar to the way rocks scrub water in a mountain stream. Earth grounding provides electrons to help soften the water without chemical or salt additives.

This self sufficient water conditioner will save you money, because there is no need for electricity, chemicals, antibiotics or salt; nor does it have any moving parts to wear out.

It will also save you appliance replacement costs by protecting valuable equipment from limescale and corrosion.

For Residential

  • -Water is better tasting and odor free
  • -Dissolves and removes mineral scale build up from  lumbing systems, water heaters and appliances, therefore extending their service life
  • -Soap film rinses away from bath tubs and showers,
  • -Reduces detergent use,
  • -Retards algae and mildew growth.
  • -Swimming pool chemicals are reduced and pool equipment lasts longer  (average chemical savings is up to 70%)

For Turf & Agricultural

  • Mineral salts are neutralized and wash away from root systems.    This enables plants to extract more nutrients from the soil and produce higher crop yields per acre – 25% to 70% higher yields.  Improves leaching process in hard soils and increases water retention in sandy soils and sandy loam. EarthCore water will break down heavy clay soils for better drainage and percolation in root zone, therefore reducing the need for wetting agents.
  • Increased dissolved oxygen availability eliminates algae and retards black layer effect. 
  • Unusable well water with T.D.S. up to 2000 ppm can be utilized.
  • Drip irrigation and piping systems run trouble free with little or no evidence of limescale clogging (94% reduction in formation of scale).
  • -Water savings range between 25-60% depending on soil type.

For Industrial

  • For cooling tower applications, boilers, water heaters, cogeneration systems, waste heat recovery systems and evaporative cooler pads all surfaces in contact with conditioned water remain free from scale or deposits, which extends the life of any components in contact with the conditioned water.
  • Replaces environmentally harmful chemical water treatment systems.
  • Allows systems to operate at higher T.D.S. levels, therefore increasing operating efficiency.
  • -Alleviates the need to sandblast or acid wash cooling surfaces.
  • -Net savings usually total thousands of dollars per year.

Chlorine Free Pool System

Using hydrogen peroxide & the Earth Core Water Conditioner you can swim or soak in a pool or spa that makes you feel revitalized from oxygenation, rather than tired from toxic chemicals!

This  unique system uses oxygen and the Earth Core water conditioner for a 100% Chlorine free pool or spa system.  It is VERY easy to maintain and non-toxic.

Salt systems are not chlorine free pool systems.

I’d like to clarify misleading information that others may have given you so you know the truth about salt systems.

Salt systems are really chlorine systems. Salt is sodium chloride and when you ionize it, it splits into sodium and chlorine. So,  a salt regeneration system is still a chlorine system. It’s a little bit better than a straight chlorine system, but one has to remember that chlorine, when combined with any organic compounds makes known or suspected carcinogens.

Hydrogen Peroxide or Ozone:

  • Increases the oxygen levels in your pool or spa
  • Makes algae less likely to grow in a putrefying manner
  • Makes blue green algae that grows invisible to the naked eye
  • **We recommend that you use sodium percarbonate powder.  It is much easier and safer to handle than hydrogen peroxide, and it becomes hydrogen peroxide when it touches water.

If you only use Sodium Percarbonate  or Hydrogen Peroxide without using the Earth Core Water Conditioner, your chemical costs will be 3 to 5 times more than chlorine, as the ozone or hydrogen peroxide will gas out of the water rapidly.

The addition of the Earth Core Water Conditioner stabilizes the water (without any chemicals), thus making hydrogen peroxide (or Sodium Percarbonate) a viable alternative to chlorination.

To create a 100% Chlorine Free Pool or Spa System, install a 3/4 inch Earth Core Water Conditioner ($1,599.00 + $35 S/H, plus FL tax if applicable) or a 1/2 inch Electro-Mechanical Water Conditioner for small pools or Spas ($1,299.00 + $35 S/H, plus FL tax if applicable). Then you add  sodium percarbonate, which we recommend because it is easier to handle than Hydrogen Peroxide.

When do you add more Sodium Percarbonate or Hydrogen Peroxide?  When you see patches of  green algae forming at the bottom of the pool. When you see this, the hydrogen peroxide is low. Use 2-4 pounds of sodium percarbonate  to SHOCK THE POOL. For maintenance, use 1-2 pounds of sodium percarbonate per week.

You may need to add more sodium percarbonate to your pool or spa during spring, due to large volumes of tree pollen. The pollen will consume the hydrogen peroxide and of course, you will also have to use more sodium percarbonate during the few weeks that the flowers are blooming.

During the winter, sodium percarbonate can be reduced to 2-4 pounds per month.  When you open the pool up for the first time after winter is over, it may be extremely green with algae.  If you want to save money and increase efficiency, you may use chlorine to kill off the algae and then vacuum the pool. Then, add sodium percarbonate or hydrogen peroxide to oxidize or “burn off” the chlorine before taking a dip in the pool or spa.  (These instructions are good for pools from 5,000-18,000 gallon sizes. For larger pools you will need to add more.) Call us for current sodium percarbonate pricing.

Alkaline Water

  • Medical grade alkaline water
  • 50% Reduction in Water Molecule Size
  • High negative ORP (oxidation reduction potential)


This is the only alkalizer we trust! Why? It takes time to produce high quality alkaline water!

Why you should choose a medical grade batch alkalizer rather than a  flow-through alkalizer that connects to the faucet:

The “real” medical grade water alkalizer gives the benefits that we are told about.  It takes TIME to create quality water.

Do you want to know the truth?

The original alkaline water testing (+/-60 years ago) was done with a batch alkalizer not a flow-through alkalizer. Therefore, the alkaline water literature and testing results that you find are actually based on batch alkalizer testing.  Yet the flow-through alkalizers do not produce the same results!

All flow-through alkalizers process the water for 1/5th of a second.  Since you are only interested in the effects of the negative charge (ORP*) and it’s micro-clustered water (water molecule is+/- 50% smaller) rather than its alkalinity, how much negative charge or reduction in water molecule size can occur in 1/5th of a second?

Batch alkalizers process the water for 15 to 30 minutes. This is 3000 to 9000 times longer processing time than the flow-through alkalizers!

This is like using a battery charger on your car battery.  The electricity trickles in for a long period of time, creating more stability vs. a  jump start charge from another car.

The batch alkalizers like ours use quality electrodes with very low amperage to produce a product that does not leach into the water and is safer to use.  In fact, our electrodes never need replacing, unlike some flow-through models.  Some flow-through machines zap the water with such high voltage that it can cause heavy metals to leach into the water from the electrodes breaking down.  

In addition, some flow-through alkalizers utilize two specific technologies to artificially enhance both the pH as well as the ORP (negative charge) with mineral/chemical methods. They use coral calcium in the pre-filter to increase the pH. Tourmaline is also added in the pre-filter to artificially increase the ORP. So they are creating higher pH and ORP with coral calcium and tourmaline.  Other flow-through machines have reservoirs that contain additional chemicals.

This is why alkaline drops or alkaline minerals used in flow-through machines to alkalize the water are a problem.   These alkaline solutions and mineral filters will neutralize the acids in the stomach, creating later health issues.   Alkaline chemicals + acid chemicals = salts.In this case, the acid chemical is one’s body, and the salts that are created with interaction with alkaline minerals will tax the kidneys and may, over time, cause kidney stones and other problems elsewhere in the body. This is also why long-term use of alkaline minerals, (such as baking soda or stomach antacids or acid reflux medicines) cause severe health issues. The body is forced to use the alkaline minerals, even when it shouldn’t. This is how you destructively change body chemistry.

This is not what occurs when making alkaline water with the medical grade batch alkalizer.

Batch Alkalizers that generate a high negative charge do not use any chemicals to create the high negative charge or high pH. They create 100% electrically induced pH and ORP that the body can discharge.   The negative charge in the alkaline water is what does the work in the body by allowing the cells to let in nutrients and let go of the positively charged acid waste and heavy metals that have been glued to the cell walls.  Thus the body can cleanse itself. 

The alkalinity of the water is incidental and less important than the negative charge.  Because the negative charge is electrically induced rather than chemically induced, the body can use what it wants to and flush away the rest. The long duration of processing the water in the batch system makes the water molecule +/-50% smaller. This is the primary reason why this water has close to 3 times the penetration power and is able to detoxify so well.

Since the alkalinity of the alkaline water is discharged at the mouth, the solution entering the stomach will not neutralize the stomach’s acid, as the water is no longer alkaline.

If a person with diabetes drank 1 1/4 gallons of alkaline water every day (made from a batch system), I would be willing to bet that within 30-45 days, 95% would lower their insulin requirements. Try that experiment with a flow-through alkalizer and see how many failures you will have.

Keep in mind the working difference is negatively charged alkaline water (from a batch alkalizer) vs. alkaline chemicals in water. Negative charged alkaline water helps the body to lower the positively charged acid waste and heavy metals, so that the cells can dispose of these waste materials easily.

Alkaline chemicals will neutralize the acid waste to form SALTS.  These salts will be added waste for the kidneys to dispose of and as one ages and the kidneys lower their efficiency, the possibility of forming kidney stones goes up.

*ORP = Oxidation Reduction Potential or the negative charge of molecules in the water.  The higher the negative charge, the more beneficial the alkaline water is in detoxifying the body’s heavy metal and positively charged acid waste.

Fluoride war rages on in Pinellas

The war against fluoride in Pinellas County is not over! Politicians and the usual corporate from the American Dental Association will once again attempt to force not just Pinellas county to add back the fluoride but to force the state of Florida to make fluoridation mandatory.
