By my own experiences, I can confirm the informations discussed in this article. I went through all: From meat eater, to a vegetarian and vegan diet drinking filtered tab water – and back to eating meat and good bottled water.
I can promise you, the worst decision I ever made, was my vegan diet and the filtered tab water. There is no way, to live healthy for a long time with a vegetarian/vegan diet – especially without supplements.
Forget it. Those who have been there, know, it is a trip right to hell and playing with the own life.
You can eat healthy as much as you want, if your combination in your diet do not match the needs of your body, you turn out being sick. Very sick. With lots of dysfunctions of your body and this is no fun.
The perfect combination of calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium is just the start of a healty diet.
We know our body needs per day:
1000- 1200 mg of calcium
2000 mg potassum
300 -400 mg magnesium
1000 mg sodium – or equal 5-6g salt – of course when you sweat much, you will need more
plus all the vitamins etc.
If you get your 1000 mg calcium right per day – and yes you get it also from good bottled water and not from tab water (I saw this in the analysis from the tab water here) – you are far from being on the safe side of a healthy diet.
Exmple: My bottled (glasbottle!) water here in Germany contain:.
460 mg calcium,
58 mg magnesium
15,5 mg potassum per liter.
Do the math for yourself! So, of course I do need to find out, what I do need in my diet daily, to equal the imbalance. If not – I will get sick! Go to google and search for all the food and find out what they contain! Just to turn out in your diet with 2000 mg potassum a day – not that easy!
So, if you like to eat very salty (sodium) of course you will need more calcium, because the body lose calcium when you consume to much salt… one imbalance activates another one and any imbalance causes the body dysfunctions – ergo the doctors diagnosis: “diseases”.
It is not just the wrong type of water that makes ill. You need to focus the whole picture. It is the right combination of water and food, which makes the difference between health and illness. Between life and dead.
google the deficiency of potassum!
Is your bottled water making you ILL? From nausea to exhaustion and even osteoporosis, there may be a surprising cause…
- Many of us have swapped a significant source of magnesium — tap water — for bottled water, which often has a far lower content
- Ahlem Gamri, 37, from London felt bloated and wiped out, no matter how much sleep she got
- The recommended daily magnesium intake for adults is 420mg for men and 320mg for women
- Nutritional therapist Dr Christy Ferguson says magnesium deficiency is hard to diagnose
- Mary Wood, 60, from Warwick suffered from acid reflux for years
Ahlem Gamri was always sipping bottled water in an effort to drink the recommended eight glasses a day
Like many women, Ahlem Gamri was always sipping bottled water in an effort to drink the recommended eight glasses a day.
As a consultant in the oil and gas industry, who travels around the world, she kept a bottle in her handbag to drink on the move.
‘It’s common knowledge that drinking water is fundamental in maintaining health,’ she says.
But despite her best efforts to stay healthy, she was baffled when she began to suffer from a range of symptoms.
‘I felt bloated and wiped out, no matter how much sleep I got,’ says Ahlem, 37, from London.
‘I tried cutting out bread and exercised more in a bid to boost my metabolism and snap me out of it, but I still felt terrible. I had odd symptoms that would flare up and subside without warning — muscle aches, joint pain, dizziness, palpitations, nausea.’
For three years, she consulted endocrinologists, neurologists, gastroenterologists, rheumatologists and immunologists.
Every expert offered different solutions to the symptoms — but none could explain what was actually wrong.
‘It wasn’t until I saw naturopathic doctor Nigma Talib that I got any answers,’ says Ahlem. ‘After a battery of tests, she identified I had a magnesium deficiency.’
Surprisingly, drinking bottled water can cause it.
This little-heard-of deficiency is surprisingly common among women — one survey found one in ten suffers from it, but some experts cite figures as high as seven in ten — and the effects can be devastating.
