An e-Course On Finding The Best Filter, For The Purest Water
Learn what the most common contaminants in drinking water are, and what health issues they are associated with, so you can more intentionally filter your water and guide clients to do the same!
Did you know that:
- Excessive levels of lead, a potent neurotoxin, have been found in almost 2,000 water systems across all 50 states
- 77 million Americans drink water that has violated the Safe Drinking Water Act because of excess contamination?
- 36 million Americans who rely on well water are consuming dangerous levels of arsenic every day?
- Almost 90% of drinking water sampled by the USDA had traces of Atrazine, the most widely used herbicide in the country?
CONTAMINATED DRINKING WATER IS A SERIOUS ISSUE
Long term, low-level consumption of these contaminants can undermine a healthy body, and lead to or exacerbate chronic health issues. Issues like cancer, diabetes, heart disease, infertility, obesity, digestive problems, autoimmune disorders, and even skin problems.
We MUST filter our water
But which kind of filter?
- Activated Carbon?
- Reverse Osmosis?
- What about Alkaline water?
- Is a pitcher filter okay?
- Do I need a whole house filter?
Figuring out which filter is right can be pretty confusing.

NOT ALL FILTERS ARE THE SAME
People who sell filters will all say that theirs is “the best” or the “#1”, but not all filters are the same, so how can that be? Surely, they can’t all be the best! Shopping for water filters is confusing & overwhelming, and folks are often left wondering if they got the right one, and hoping that it’s taking out all the harmful contaminants they want to avoid.
But here’s the truth: THERE IS NO PERFECT FILTER.
- If you live in an agricultural area, you’re likely to have higher levels of pesticides, herbicides, and nitrates in your water
- If you live in a more urban area, you’re likely to have higher levels of industrial chemicals, like perchlorate and PFAS Your city may use old lead pipes to transport water to your home
- Even if your city has no lead in the distribution system, you may have lead in the fixtures in your house
- The geography of your local area might add naturally occurring fluoride to the water, or your city might intentionally add it
- Some cities add chlorine to disinfect, while others use chloramine, which is harder to remove
To Get Clean water, you must match the filter to the contaminants in YOUR water
But with more and more people struggling with chronic health issues, most of which can be made worse by exposure to contaminants in our water, getting the right filter is more important than ever!
That’s why I created:

You know this famous quote: “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” PURE is designed to teach you to fish so you can know how to filter your water for the rest of your life. I want to teach you to see your water differently, and to guide you towards finding the best filter for your unique water situation.
