Which Water System, by using a

water filter, will produce purified water

to defeat your cancer?

Which water system is best?  Treating cancer alternatively reviews and discusses pure water and water filtration to reverse cancer and have a healthy lifestyle.


There are a variety of water systems for producing pure water for drinking. 


How do I know which water system gives pure drinking water? 


Which water system is best for reversing cancer and giving a healthy lifestyle? 


The effects of water pollution are widespread and the dangers are obvious. 


Thus, the problem trickles down to one of individual responsibility.  When it comes time to wet your palate, the decision of what to drink and what to avoid is yours alone.  Pure water is important in fighting and destroying cancer cells.


Perhaps this is the way it ought to be.  If we don’t make that decision, one day the government may make it for us. But herein also lies a burden – that of being educated about the numerous options of choosing pure water to drink and knowing which water system is best. 


The right water system is a choice that treating cancer alternatively discusses.  We will review the different water filtration systems.  Our immune system has become overwhelmed with all the different chemicals and pollutants that are being ingested on a daily basis.  By decreasing the water contaminates, we give our immune system the opportunity to fight other challenges including the breaking down of cancer cells.


What follows is a discussion of many of those options for buying or making pure water for drinking, cooking, and bathing water.


There are a variety of water filtration systems for treating water to improve its quality.  Some water filtration systems can be utilized at home, while water filtration systems require larger or more complicated installations.


As we each consider the possibilities to treating cancer alternatively, we will look at Some Alternatives to Tap Water.



How do I know which water system will provide pure water? 


Which water system will become an important role in cancer reversal?


Which water system will give me all the minerals and trace minerals that my body needs to begin the healing process in treating cancer alternatively?


Which water filtration system will provide pH balance in the water?  The pH balance is another important aspect of treating cancer alternatively.


This list of questions can get long and the decision so forbidding and technical that the easiest choice is to do nothing. 


After all, pure water filtration equipment requires an investment and unlike cars, you cannot take them for a test drive. 


Consumer magazines may on occasion compare bottled waters, filters, or distillers, but rarely do they contrast the different categories against each other.  Yet, you the consumer require this kind of information to make an educated decision that is correct for your health.


I was excited when I chose the water system with a triple carbon filter and an ultraviolet light, that I was able to hook up to any faucet at home or on vacation.


The water system had a 120-day warranty, with a 100% return policy if I was not satisfied.  It was great to be able to use the water filtration system and see the difference in drinking pure water.


Bottled Water

                                                Top      Alternatives


Is bottled water safe for treating cancer alternatively?  If so which bottle water is best? 


Bottled water in the USA alone has grown to an $8 billion industry. 


It can trickle down from mountains or spring up from deep artesian wells.  Spring water comes from the earth flowing naturally from an underground spring.  Some spring water is naturally carbonated; others have added carbon dioxide to make the bubbles. 


Jake Ginsky in his article “Downstream Effects” depicts that one brand of bottled water simply called “Spring Water” turned out to have actually been tapped from beneath an industrial parking lot next to a hazardous waste site.  This is not the pure water we need in treating cancer alternatively.


If you would like a complete copy of the above reference article, please request a copy at the Request Information tab.


According to Jake, “Bottlers that do draw their water from springs are creating another kind of problem.  Environmentalists are increasingly concerned about the degradation of the rivers and other water sources fed by these lucrative but increasingly diverted springs”.


Mineral waters are spring waters with high counts of mineral salts that are renowned for their ancient healing qualities.  They can also be naturally carbonated, or improved with added carbon dioxide gas. 


Individuals struggling with cancer need to stay away from mineral salts as well as carbon dioxide gas.


It seemed to me that advertisements I had heard on television and in magazines were often in opposition to what my body needed in treating cancer alternatively and beginning to allow my body to heal from the devastating effects of cancer.


Some bottled drink waters are municipal waters that have been cleaned up through water filtration and/or ozonation.  Unlike regular tap water, this water is purer and has never traveled through miles of aging underground pipes. 


By and large, bottled waters are a boon to our health and safety, but they are not without their problems.


Problems with Bottled Waters


The National Resources Defense Council completed a 4 year test of 103 bottled waters and found that one-third of them contained bacteria and other chemicals exceeding industry standards.  These studies showed deficiencies in industry regulation and the claim to the pure water our immune system needs in treating cancer alternatively.


 If you are interested you may request a complete copy of the report.


According to the International bottled Water association (IBWA), there is a one in four chances that your bottled water has been drawn from municipal taps.  So much for bottle water that is pure water without chemicals and other pollutants.


FDA regulations require bottled water be processed, packaged, transported, and stored under safe and sanitary conditions.  Bottlers must monitor their source waters and their finished products for contaminants.  These standards fall under the same regulations as tap water.  


Bottle water is safe to drink even as tap water is safe to drink.  However there is still the presence of chemicals and pollutants.


Possibly one of the biggest challenges with depending on bottle water for your source of pure water for drinking is that in the event of catastrophic events in your area such as storms, fires, etc. there is a run on bottle water. 


With the shortage of bottle water in that part of the country, you are left to drinking water that may drastically set you back in your fight for health and vitality.


In the face of a potential storm, loss of electricity or any other event that places a challenge on our water supply, we take action immediately. 


We quickly draw plenty of pure water from our triple carbon block, ultra violet light, and water system to last for several days for extra protection to our health.


The above the counter water system can be quickly disconnected and taken with us if we need to leave our home for an extended time period.


Another challenge with bottle water is the recycling and disposal of the vast number of plastic bottles that are being used daily.  The recycling and waste is putting yet more pollution into our environment.


Logistics is another consideration when using bottled water.  We forget to use bottle water for cooking and cleaning our foods.


Most of us would simply drink from the tap and rationalize:  “…a little bit is okay..”  but the risk of drinking any amount of contaminated water is not worth it when cancer is present in your body. 


The availability of pure water ought not to involve considerations of price.


Not all bottled waters are equal!  High quality bottled water does indeed exists. 


But we as consumers must make the effort to find them.  We all need to have the convenience and the access to bottle water for those times that we are away from home.


We will be sharing more information about high quality pure bottle water later. 


Quality pure water is essential and certainly worth paying for. 

                                                Top      Alternatives


There are other alternatives to drinking pure water and the cost of producing pure water at home is less than buying it.


Charcoal Water Filtration is probably the most commonly used home treatment method.  Filters use either an absorbing or screening material to physically remove or block contaminants from water at the faucet.  There are many different types of water filtration systems and filter materials. 


Carbon and activated carbons are the most common.  Filters are often arranged in a series so that the media material’s that are most effective for specific types of contaminants can be used. 


“Activated” carbon contains a microscopic labyrinth with an enormous surface area on which carbon molecules can cling.  This is the reason for the carbon’s fantastic adsorptive capacity.  One pound of granular activated carbon provides a surface area equivalent to 125 acres!


One of the best carbon filters is the tall column model.  These range from 6 inches to 2 feet and contain large quantities of densely packed charcoal.  The water moves down the long tube, getting cleaner and cleaner as it journey to the bottom. 


Carbon block filters contain great volumes of charcoal compressed into super-dense blocks.  Most also include layers of other media that filter the water before and after the charcoal.  The technology behind carbon blocks can get very sophisticated.  Some use different activating processes that create new geometric lattices that increase the adsorptive area.  


Carbon block water filtration systems effectively remove chlorine, toxic gases, odors, tastes VOCs, THMs, pesticides, organic compounds, heavy metals such as lead, and bacteria and cysts such as E. coli, protozoa, Guardia, and cryptosporidium.


High end faucet mounted filters may include micron strainers to effectively remove cysts such as giardia lambdia and cryptosporidium.  Some even have bypasses for hot water and monitors to remind you to change the filter. 


They can remove chlorine, gases, odors, tastes and reduce volatile organic compounds (VOCs), trihalomehtanes (THMs), and pesticides.


Sometriple carbon filters” have also developed and patented an ultraviolet light that destroys additional bacteria and viruses found in water.

                                                Top      Alternatives


These water system units are often mounted under the sink where they connect directly to the cold water pipe.  On the sink top, all you see is a fountain spigot.  The under sink models require tapping into the cold water line and possibly drilling a hole for the new filter spigot.


Countertop models use the same filter cartridge but have a housing that attaches to the faucet end via a double tube.  The faucet works normally for washing dishes but when a valve is pressed, water travels to and through the filter in one tube and returns to the faucet via the second tube.  These countertop models install easily.  Just screw the included diverter valve onto the facet tip. 


Both models will last a year or until you have used 1,280 gallons of water.  During the first year the average cost of a gallon of water is 30 cents.  Each year thereafter the cost is only 13 cents a gallon (the cost of filter replacement).


After researching those available, I chose a water purifier with a “triple carbon filter” with an ultraviolet light going up the center. 


I needed pure water ensuring that all viruses and bacteria were killed. I also needed the minerals that are naturally in water.    I wanted one that met all three of the water standards set by NSF International.


I know individuals that have used Reverse Osmosis for several years. They are suffering from muscle and bone pain, arthritis and other ailments. 


I knew from my study of nutrition and the body that the muscle and bone pains were due to a lack of much needed minerals in the body.


I needed every edge I could find in treating cancer alternatively.  With diagnosed cancer with limited lifespan (6 months) I felt like I have one chance to choose the water filtration system that would give me the best fighting chance at health and vitality.


Again I went back to how God intended the water to be for our health.  I knew that the natural minerals that are in water are important for our bodies. 


I also needed a water filtration system that could travel with me.  We also purchased a carbon filter for our shower to remove the chlorine.


Ultraviolet Light is the same type of germicidal lamp used in hospitals and laboratories to kill germs in water.  These lamps produce short wave beams of (light) radiation that are lethal to bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms found in water.  Water enters the ultraviolet (UV) purifier and flows into the ring between the bulb and the stainless steel outside chamber wall.  It takes only seconds to destroy most microorganisms.


The combination of carbon filters and ultraviolet light has become a highly effective method of ensuring pure water for drinking.


These special lamps use about 60 watts of electricity and last as long as 7,500 hours.  Thousands of gallons of water can be treated for extremely low operating costs.


On the low end of charcoal filters is the common carafe / pitcher filter.  Basically, this is a water pitcher that filters like a coffee make.  Tap water is poured into the top, runs down through a small filter, and the filtered water lands at the bottom.


It significantly reduces chlorine, gases, odors, and tastes.  The carafe is inexpensive, portable, and easy to use. 


But, the filters need to be changed one to two times per month to avoid bacterial growth.  Based on the cost of a typical replacement filter, this amounts to approximately 30 cents a gallon


This frequent changing is also bothersome for most folks who slack off on their filter-changing responsibilities. 


Filter must be changed 1 – 2 times a month. 


This laziness can result in water that is more contaminated than what comes out of the tap!  In treating cancer alternatively it is important to eliminate as many risks as possible in reversing cancer and allowing our bodies to heal from the inside out.


Faucet mounted canisters are another inexpensive ($25 - $60) type of charcoal water filtration.  They contain small amounts of charcoal.  In some brands, tap water may drill a hole through the center of the canister because the charcoal is loosely packed. 


This makes for a speedy flow rate but minimal contact time with the charcoal. 


These filters also need to be changed frequently to avoid bacterial growthTheir charcoal can also be damaged by the unintentional usage of hot water.


All simple charcoal filters should be replaced frequently.  Dark moist charcoal turns out to be an ideal breeding ground for bacteria.  After a few weeks, the bacterial population is large enough to leak out of the filter.  Old filters can only hold so much.  Some units actually start to unload their pollutants when they reach their saturation point, re-contaminating the water.


Shower filters are also an important consideration in treating cancer alternatively and allowing our skin to absorb the chlorine and other chemicals that are in water. 


Many believe that our skin does not absorb the chemicals and other residue that are in the water.  If that is so then I must ask why the medical field and other companies are promoting skin patches to help individuals control their additions and pains.

                                                Top      Alternatives


While the pure water for drinking is of primary importance, contaminants and chlorine byproducts also enter our bodies through the skin via the water in which we bathe.


Many do not believe that our skin absorbs the chlorine and other chemicals into our body.  But if this is not so, why is it that the medical field and other companies have encouraged the use of “patches” to control addictions and pain?


Also, our lungs absorb toxic fumes from the gaseous chlorine byproducts that are released in a steamy shower. 


A report in Science News estimated we inhale enough pollutants in a ten minute shower to equal drinking a gallon of polluted water. 


Chlorine in shower water can strip protein from our hair and skin causing dry, irritated eyes, itchy skin, and dandruff.  Hair can become dull and carry a chlorine smell. 


Filtering shower water also helps control bacteria and fight bathroom mold and mildew.


Shower filters attach directly to the showerhead or replace the showerhead itself. 


It is awesome to feel and see the difference in my health and vitality when using a carbon shower filter. 


They are easy to install and take on vacations.


Steam-distillation water system is the process of converting liquids into a vapor state by heating.  The vapor cools and is condensed back into a liquid and stored. 


This process removes solids and other impurities, producing drinking water.  Metals, including lead, cadmium, mercury, and aluminum, as well as other toxins are removed. 


Boiling water does not accomplish the same thing because all the harmful chemicals are left concentrated in the water.  Boiling water kills the viruses and bacteria.


                                                Top      Alternatives


The downside is that steam-distillation removes all the minerals and our bodies need minerals.


It can be argued that distillation is the most natural of all water system purification methods.  Rainwater is nature’s way of distilling water. 


Distillation effectively removes all bacterial and microorganisms including viruses. 


It also removes soluble inorganic salts such as fluoride, sodium, nitrates, along with organic chemicals like pesticides, PCBs, THMs and radionnuclides. 


Heavy metals such as lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium and soluble minerals such as calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, etc. are removed by distillation.


Probably the biggest complaint about distillers is the inconvenience of not having water on demand.  


From the point of view of the average American surrounded by appliances designed to make their kitchen life more convenient, the requirement of plugging something in and waiting hours to get a gallon of pure water, is a bit much. 


High output distillers take an average of 3 hours to make a gallon of water. 


Countertop distillers can take as long as 6 hours to make a gallon.


In treating cancer alternatively you are constantly using large amounts of pure water not only for drinking, but also for cleaning your vegetables for juicing and cooking.  It is important to consider all aspects of your needs in purchasing the right water system for you.


Most distillers are electric. 


They will have an impact on your electric bill according the efficiency of the machine.  


Before you purchase a distiller, find out the cost per gallon to operate it.  Electric rates are often higher and heat and humidity from the distiller only add to the battle between your air conditioner and your sweat glands.


Reverse osmosis water system is a high-tech method of purifying water in which water is forced through a semi permeable membrane while charged particles and larger molecules are repelled.  It is the best system for treating water that is brackish (high in salt). 

                                                Top      Alternatives


In reverse osmosis, the more concentrated polluted water is forced under pressure in the direction of the pure water.  Only the smallest molecules can penetrate the microscopic pores of the membrane.  Large molecules like most contaminants and even dissolved ions are lefts behind.


The great advantage of this type of water filtration is its ability to significantly reduce salts and operate with electricity. 


RO units provide one of the best methods of extracting inorganic minerals, heavy metals such as lead, copper, cadmium, arsenic; and salts such as sulfates, nitrates and fluoride; plus asbestos and virtually all organic chemicals.


They also draw out most aesthetic contaminants such as taste, odor, and color. 


The low mineral content of RO treated water also makes it usable for steam irons, car batteries, and humidifiers.  The challenge in treating cancer alternatively is that our immune system and body needs the natural minerals found in water.  Remember that cancer is mutated cells that have mutated because of unnatural conditions in our bodies.


RO units reduce pollutants in every major contaminant category except viruses and bacteria.  Because RO units need only water under pressure to operate, they accomplish all this without electricity.


RO units cannot remove toxic gases, chloroform, phenol, THMs, bacteria, viruses, some pesticides and organic compounds with low molecular weights.


RO units waste 6 gallons of input water for every gallon of purified water. 


Therefore RO units are being restricted in many states.


Even if the Reverse Osmosis water system is not restricted in your state, water is becoming scarcer in many areas and new laws are being passed regularly that may affect your state.


Another disadvantage of RO units is that the membrane replacement is costly.  The RO Unit requires pre & post carbon filters.  Plumber installation is required. 


The water quality diminishes as the membrane ages.


As I considered all the options and the needs of my body in fighting cancer, it became evident that I needed to replenish my body with much needed minerals that had been stripped from my body over the years. 


I understood that I needed to switch from an RO unit to a water system that would remove all the



bacteria, etc from the water,

leaving not only the minerals “man” is aware of, but more importantly all the trace and yet unknown minerals that are in the water that our bodies need.


After all our bodies are over 70% water. 


So the triple carbon with the ultraviolet water purifier seemed to be the best choice for me.


Ozone water system is not new as a treatment for pure water nor is it unnatural. 

                                                Top      Alternatives


It was discovered in the late 18th century by a Dutch scientist who named it after the Greek word meaning “smell.”  The smell is actually the true smell of activated oxygen.  Ozone is formed when oxygen is agitated and split. 


The freed molecules of oxygen temporary jump on the backs of the regular oxygen forming O3 instead of O2 .  This condition lasts only for a few minutes as the O3 form of oxygen is unstable and quickly returns to the normal O2.  Ozone, or “active oxygen,” is produced by passing air through an electrical field, or over the light from a particular wavelength in the ultraviolet range.  The latter simulates the way nature makes ozone from sunlight.


Actually, we have been living with ozone all our lives and would be quite sick without it.  Plants produce ozone on the tips of their leaves, which quickly turns into the oxygen they so generously provide us.


I found it was time to get those living plants into my home.  For convenience and beauty many of us turned to artificial plants. 


I wonder what would happen if we continually filled our homes with living plant life?


Mountain top communities are known for their good health and longevity due, perhaps in part, to the higher ozone levels in the air.


The “Ozone Layer,” located in the upper levels of the atmosphere, protects us from harmful ultraviolet radiation emanating from the sun. 


This natural shield is being eaten away by fluorocarbon emissions from industry, air conditioners, and refrigerators. 


This is the same problem that forced the elimination of aerosol cans in the 1970s.  Because of our diminishing ozone layer, ultraviolet rays are penetrating the atmosphere to a greater extent than ever before and are multiplying the incidence of skin cancer in overindulgent sunbathers.


Ozone is one of our most powerful natural germicides.  Ozone turns toxic wastewater into drinking water with no color, odor turbidity, or living organisms. Unfortunately, there is a great deal of misunderstanding about the beneficial use of ozone. 


There are still many challenges and cost effectiveness to overcome for home usage as will as for municipal treatment plants.


Ceramic Filter water system is made out of clay or volcanic sand or magnetite stone.  Actually, they are an old technology.  Hennery Doulton first developed ceramic water filters in the mid 19th century to provide safe water during a cholera epidemic in London.

                                                Top      Alternatives


The Doulton’s water filtration systems are still around today and remove a wide range of contaminants.  The two main advantages of the ceramic water system are:

Very long filter life and the ability to extract inorganic chemicals and bacteria.


Filter life of these units are all 1,000 plus gallons.


Water softeners are not filters.  They do not clean the water, but rather change its behavior.   They offer another way to treat water.  They use either sodium or potassium to exchange or substitute for the calcium and/or magnesium present in naturally “hard” water.  The primary benefit of softening is in improved cleaning properties for water and less mineral buildup inside household pipes and equipment.


I needed to reduce the sodium (salt) intake into my body and increase the potassium (salt) in my body.


One of the first recommendations that I needed to do was to have our water softener disconnected.


This was a difficult decision as we had hard water.


As I look back on my health it was well worth the decision to deal with hard water.


Soft water exists naturally, but if the water in your area is naturally hard, many treat it with a water softener.  Conventional water softeners add salt to water in a process of ion exchange that reduces the high calcium and magnesium content, but can also elevate sodium levels in your drinking water


Salt increases the growth of the cancer tumors.

                                                Top      Alternatives


Treating cancer alternatively deems drinking pure water a necessity in reversing cancer and allowing the body to heal and become healthy again.  The water system that you choose should provide pure water at an economical cost.  For us it is important that our water filtration system can go where we go.
