Water & Health

Switching to healthier water is a must when starting the Maker’s Diet. Many bottled waters at the grocery store say simply “pure,” “filtered,” or “spring water.” But what does that mean?

As many of you may have seen on the news in recent months, companies that produce these waters don’t always go to that much trouble to make sure they’re pure or filtered. For all you know, the water you drink out of some bottles could be tap water. So, it’s important to find a reputable company who produces distilled water that you can trust.

Water & Health Inc (located on Sams Drive in Chesapeake and on Lynnhaven Parkway in Virginia Beach) is one of the most reputable places in the southeastern Virginia area I’ve found for truly pure water. Water & Health Inc puts their water through a double distillation process. It is so pure, it can sit for years in a jar in the sunlight and never discolor (unlike the city tap water found all over the country including Virginia Beach, Chesapeake and Suffolk—which turns varying shades of brown over a period of months while sitting in the sun).

At Water & Health you can purchase a membership at varying levels which INCLUDES a certain number of gallons of water (i.e. 250 gal., 500 gal., etc.). In addition to the water, you may decide to purchase a dispensary system either through Water & Health or at a local Lowe’s or Home Depot. My husband and I purchased our dispensary unit 2 years ago and a $200+ membership with Water & Health and we still haven’t run out of water yet!

You can taste the difference from Water & Health, which is why I so highly recommend it. You may find other places in the area that suit your needs or location better, but always make sure to get tour of the place, find out how they distill/purify their water and price compare.
