WQA Drinking Water Treatment Products Statement
Water and “Rules for Living”

Last year, there was flood of information in the media about the old rule of drinking 8 glasses of water a day. In the British Health Journal and the New York Times, there were doctors that refuted this long held rule stating there was no scientific evidence to support it.
However, in terms of Beauty Inside and Out, water may truly be the fountain of youth.
Or at least the main ingredient!

According to World Health Statistics, France and Japan have the longest life expectancy. Especially among women. I decided to do a little research of my own (conspiracy theorist that I am).
Among other factors (that I will discuss further in this series), water intake is number one among these two groups.
French women favor good wine and water. They do not have a tendency to sweet or sugary drinks like their American sisters.
Japanese women are avid water drinkers. They also have a special method.

“It is popular in Japan to drink water immediately after waking up every morning. Furthermore, scientific tests have proven its value.

Apparently, for old and serious diseases, as well as modern illnesses, the water treatment had been found successful by a Japanese medical society as a 100% cure for the following diseases:

Headache, body ache, heart system, arthritis, fast heartbeat, epilepsy, excess fatness, bronchitis asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney and urine diseases, vomiting, gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, all eye diseases, womb, cancer and menstrual disorders, ear nose and throat diseases”.
Humans are free (2013)

This happens to be common knowledge in the East. My family doctor is from the Philippines and he shared this method with me a couple of years ago as a support to weight loss and blood pressure concerns.
Originally I thought , “Water is a cure? Whatever”…
But if it’s going to help me with youth and vitality… Now I care.

So what’s the method? Drinking water!

We are 6 days into the New Year 2016! We have made our resolutions and plan. We are working on our Vision Boards, signing up for fitness classes or going back to school. We are on the move!
This Women Crush Wednesday is about ……Us! Every woman reading this has something about herself that she can and should be proud of. However, many of us do not receive the cheers and accolades that we deserve so we often think that we are not good enough. Or we strive so hard to please because we are seeking affirmation and we come up short.

Stop being so hard on yourself!

As I was putting my thoughts together for this post, I began to think of all the women who affirmed me over the years, who encouraged me to believe in myself and to honor my femininity. My mother is definitely chief of them. I mention my mom because as I began writing this morning, I remembered a song that she played often, during Clean up Saturday. Yes, we had a name for a day where you started at 9 am, cleaning your room and doing chores before you could do anything else.

While I lay sound asleep in my comfy bed,with visions of going outside to play with my friends on a sunny Saturday, all of a sudden loud music would blast throughout the house. A kind of call to arms. I hated it.

I mention this because I remember while scrubbing tile in the bathroom Saturday mornings, there was a song that my mom often played from The Wiz ,a Broadway musical which was recently recreated and shown on television this past Holiday season. This song helped me make peace with my lot. It encouraged me as I planned my escape to adulthood, where you did not have to clean your house if you didn’t feel like it! I believe this is sung by the character Glenda the Good Witch to Dorothy. These words rang in my head as I began writing to us, women and girls, all around the world today:

Believe in yourself, right from the start, Believe in the magic that’s inside your heart. Believe all these things, not because I told you too. But believe in yourself as I believe in you.

Go get it! Be you, boo! You are a Queen! You are the Princess of your realm! Have an Awesome Day!

Meet Zhou Qunfei, a Chinese factory worker turned billionaire! At 45 years young, she is the richest self-made woman in the World!

factory worker
Ms. Qunfei is the founder of touch screen manufacturing company Lens Technology and she is one of eight Chinese women on a list of the world’s ten wealthiest self-made women, which was published by Forbes earlier this fall.

What is really interesting is that out of 73 women in this category, 49 are from Asia! Clearly, the stereotype for submissive geisha needs to be revisited as far as these women are concerned! Perhaps someone can tell us what they are teaching the girls in Asia!!

Women Crush Wednesday is about putting a spotlight on awesome women like Ms. Qunfei because women need to see and know what is possible!

I Am yours and you are Mine

You have ravished my heart,
My sister, my spouse;
You have ravished my heart
With one look of your eyes,
With one link of your necklace.
10 How fair is your love,
My sister, my spouse!
How much better than wine is your love,
And the scent of your perfumes
Than all spices!
11 Your lips, O my spouse,
Drip as the honeycomb;
Honey and milk are under your tongue;
And the fragrance of your garments
Is like the fragrance of Lebanon.
Song of Solomon 4:9-11 NKJV

The Lord is remembering women in these times. The early church fathers did a disservice to women in many ways and spoke ill of the female gender. Many believe these early misconceptions have left a harmful residue in Christianity today.
We are valued and loved! Women are highly favored of The Lord.

He seeks relationship with us. The Lord wants to heal the wounds that women have suffered in the name of Christianity, at the hands of the ill-informed and the wicked. Listen to your heart.

She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. Proverbs 31:26
