With half of Australia being ravaged by bushfires, dust storms and record high temperatures over the past few months, WATER has been a much needed comodity.
The community as a whole has been so focused on the external needs for an endless supply of water to quell the raging bushfires, provide support the regrowth of our decimated landscape and water for livestock.
The other need for water as a brilliant and simple de-stressor for our human population and the lives of our vast wildlife population has received little attention.
Lesley Una Pierce, Director of The Nutritional Healing Foundation and her book,‘The Life-Saver’s Guide to Water – The Elixir of Life’ says, “In a nutshell, STRESS is the most dehydrating thing of all. Our cells will be stressed because they are not getting enough water. It is said that we can create more toxicity from our thoughts and bottled up emotions than we ever could from our food.”Most people today just don’t drink enough clean spring water or filtered water
