When you eat out do you prefer bottled water in plastic (glass is rare and expensive) or tap water with fluoride/chlorine etc.? I believe iodine can detoxify fluoride and chlorine according to Dr. David Brownstein, MD so I believe tap water to be... (more)

We have a reverse osmosis filter in the kitchen sink, and carbon filters for the showers. Fluoride isn't the only problem - chlorination is pretty nasty stuff and the vapor off hot water is where it causes the most damage. There's an old study... (more)

How am I supposed to maintain a healthy gut, if chlorine from tap water, not even from drinking it, but from showering with it, is absorbed through the skin and is killing odd my gut bacteria? If this was the case, wouldn't everyone that grew up... (more)

Well... most people DO have screwed up guts. I know a lot of people who install shower filters like this http://www.pureshowers.co.uk/ and drink/cook with nothing but filtered or bottled water. We don't currently have a shower filter since... (more)

So, I started doing the whole magnesium oil thing, and now I'm wondering what else might be best delivered to the body via the skin? I heard recently about a B-12 patch for people with damaged small intestines. And conversely, could PUFAs... (more)

The main thing you want to watch out for when you take a shower is the steam, stuff like chlorine becomes a gas and you inhale it. I really recommend a shower filter, you can pick them up for around $30 online.

Since I lost some twenty pounds on the paleo diet, I have developed several new wrinkles in my face. I know when I take a shower I absorb a fair amount of chlorine so I wonder whether any of you have observed that a filter for chlorine in the... (more)

I've never noticed much difference between showering with unchlorinated well water and using chlorinated city water. I'd just make sure to keep the showers cool to avoid drying the skin. This also seems to have a toning effect, especially if you... (more)

I recently moved and my new place has a community swimming pool and spa. I have been thinking of adding swimming to my exercise regimen. I also love going in the spa to relax. I'm assuming that the chemicals used to clean the pool / spa are not... (more)

Swimming for me is one of the most beneficial and natural physical activities there is, especially when mixed in with other sports. I am surprised that Mark Sissons for example doesn't recommend it more in his work out routines. I think the... (more)

With all the benefits of taking epsom salt baths do you think taking them in city tap water is safe? I live in San Francisco where people praise about how clean our public water system is, but it still has flouride, chlorine, etc. Is it still... (more)

You can add baking soda to your Epsom salt to buffer your water even more. Here is my Epsom salt bath soak recipe.

Looking for a faucet filter (for a showerless tub & kitchen sink) that filters all chlorine/chlorine byproducts. Very, very chlorine sensitive. Has anyone found useful products for faucet water filtration? The chlorine in local tap water... (more)

you may also want to check if your water supply contains chloramine as well. when i was looking in to something similar a while back (a shower filter that would remove both chloramine and chlorine)...the best option seemed to be a... (more)

I appear to be chlorine-sensitive, and have thus been avoiding municipal/bathing water as much as possible. In brief, the fumes from hot water make me dizzy, cause headaches, and difficulty breathing. (This has been true throughout my life.) I... (more)

What do no-shampoo folks do after swimming in a chlorine-laden lap pool? Just rinsing with water doesn't seem to do the trick in my hair - but battling back the chlorine with the chemicals in my shampoo seems like a poor option as well. I love... (more)

I swam in college. The girls on the team used to do this: Get your hair wet with regular water in the shower, and then put a cap on before you get in. I don't know how it works but apparently it does

Chlorine is in our tap water and is one reason people drink bottled water. Sometimes when I turn the tap on I can actually smell the chlorine. But what about exposing your skin to chlorine everyday when you take a shower. Am I being paranoid or... (more)

I have an inexpensive carbon filter shower head that removes the chlorine from our water. You not only inhale a great deal of chlorine from showers but your skin absorbs it quite well...that's why meds can be administered through patches. If you... (more)
