Weekly Ponderings #9: drinking filtered water like a 👸
Hello! My 7-day community detox is starting again this weekend. A functional medicine detox is a great way to eliminate toxins, reset and rebalance your body, increase energy and mood, and decrease bloating, brain fog and inflammation.
I do one every season and will be starting my next one this Saturday, 9/14. I always feel so good after, and I'm especially looking forward to resetting my body as we go into the last 90 days of the year.
If you want to join me, sign up here to receive a daily email throughout the week for tips, motivation, recipes and more. Trust me, it's a lot more fun when you're doing it with friends!
Make sure to buy your detox kit today in order to receive it by this weekend.
My husband and I had been using an old Brita water filter for years and I wanted a new, more bougie filter. To be honest, I never really knew what the Brita was filtering out. When I learned last year that tap water can contain fluoride, heavy metals, pesticides, pharmaceuticals and pathogens, I decided to take my water filter more seriously. Turns out contaminated water is one of the many ways we're exposing ourselves to toxins every day.
I also learned that not all water filters are equal, and Berkey filters are pretty much the best on the market right now. So I gifted myself a Berkey water filter for my birthday 🤓 (I bought the Big Berkey, which holds 2.25 gallons + fluoride filters + metal spigot).
While it was a bitch to set it up (priming the filters was not easy to do in my sink), it's now just chilling on my counter and I drink clean water out of it every day like a queen. And the filtered water tastes and smells like nothing. No weird funky smells or tastes that tap water often has. Literally nothing at all.
If you're tired of spending money on bottled water, or want to upgrade to a bougie water filter that eliminates more toxins from your tap water, I recommend the splurge for a Berkey.
