The human body was created to be in balance or return to balance. We call this homeostasis. Our body relies on its chemical processing plant to keep a metabolic balance. The body knows when it is being depleted of essential minerals and nutrients, which creates imbalance. When this happens, the body has to draw from its reserves. But this can only be temporary, until these reserves are replenished.

Our body knows when its energy level is low. If nothing is done, if we continue to ignore the body's call for help, we let our body begin on the path of its destruction. When the body is neglected, it becomes vulnerable to attack from invaders from the outside. It also is open to attack from the inside by free radicals. Bacteria, which are essential for our survival, suddenly turn on us and destroy us.

The body reacts to regain its balance by calling on the immune system. Sometimes it is too late if the body has been in a contaminated state too long, which can result from the poor quality of water we put in our body every day.

Water has the power to transfer information from cell to cell and bring back balance from imbalance. Water is vital to maintain life and organization of our cells. Organized cells are healthy, productive cells. To create harmony and balance, whether in our bodies or in the environment, water must also be balanced.
