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 very confusing! And marketing around water filters can often be misleading and overwhelming. Being informed can help you find the right filter for your water, and your unique situation.
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:

In this module we’ll uncover the reasons why our water is contaminated in the first place, along with getting a clear picture of how our drinking water is (or isn’t) regulated. You’ll learn:
- How many contaminants the EPA currently regulates
- Why zero new contaminants have been regulated in nearly 20 years
- How many chemicals industries are dumping into our waterways
- The state of our water infrastructure (hint: it’s crumbling)

Module 3: Biological Contaminants & Their Effects
Module 4: Chemical Contaminants & Their Effects
Module 5: Heavy Metals in our Water
Module 6: Radioactive Isotopes In Tap Water
Radioactive isotopes in our water is becoming an increasing problem, partly due to hydraulic fracturing for gas extraction. In this module, we’ll look at where radioactives are showing up in our water, and how to make sure we’re filtering them out.
Module 7: Exploring Your Water Quality Report
Module 8: Fitting your Filter to Your Water
Module 9: Is Bottled Water Better?
In this final module, we’ll explore when bottled water is and isn’t a good choice, along with how to avoid estrogen-mimicking chemicals, and what do when traveling.
Module 10: Microplastics
Microplastics – tiny, microscopic pieces of plastic are increasingly found in both tap and bottled water. These microplastics act like magnets for other chemical contaminants in water and can themselves pose a threat to our health. In this module, you’ll learn what to look for in order to filter these bad boys out!

ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTORHi, I'm Lara Adler, and I teach health coaches, nutritionists, and other holistic health practitioners how to eliminate the #1 thing holding their clients back from the results they are seeking - the unaddressed link between chemicals and chronic health problems.
I train practitioners to become experts in everyday toxic exposures so they can improve client outcomes without spending hundreds of hours researching on their own (because you’ve got a practice to run!).
I merge the most current research in environmental health with practical, no-nonsense approaches so you can implement powerful new tools to reduce toxic exposures for your clients.
Combining environmental health education and business consulting, I’ve helped thousands of students in over 25 countries around the world elevate their skillset, get better results for their clients, and become sought out leaders in the growing environmental health & detoxification field.
Hear what some of my students have to say:

GOT QUESTIONS? CHECK THE FAQ:
Who is this course for?
Do you drink water? This course is for YOU! While I wish that everyone’s water was clean, contaminant free and worry free, that’s sadly not the case. Even in the United States, our water is riddled with issues and to some degree everyone’s water is likely not as ideal as it could be. Government isn’t doing a great job at regulating contaminants that pollute our water, or regulating the industries that do the polluting, and the end result is that we all have actually harmful and potentially harmful chemicals in the water we drink every day. If you have children, are pregnant, or dealing with a chronic health issues it’s *essential* that you have clean, contaminant free water. This course will help you to understand the issues that are local for you, and what steps to take to get the most appropriate filter for your budget.
Are you selling, recommending, or reviewing filters?
Nope! My aim with this course is to educate and empower you to find the best filter for your unique needs. There is no perfect product to recommend, but after going through this course, you’ll know how to find the best filter for your needs!
To help you though, I’ve created a “Water Filter Suggestions” guide which features a number of products that I’ve looked very closely at that I think are great filters to recommend. You can just jump to one of these, or you can use the knowledge you acquire in this course and find one on your own.
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.
