We have touched upon the subject of alkalinity
in our books and at this web site, but have not really focused on it because
there has not been an easy way to maintain our alkalinity. We can talk diet and
lifestyle changes all day long, but who among those with cancer have sustained
(longer than a week) the diet plan we have posted here (at this web site) for
Diet regimens are hard to stick to, especially
when we crave our favorite foods. Sure, some of you have avoided sugar, but now
and then you give in. We’re human.
Humans are weak.
This is why we have not focused on keeping our
terrain alkaline: people just don’t want to change their diets. However, after
some recent findings, I think that we can all get our health back with just a
few minor changes in our habits and some of the helpful products, supplements,
and devices we’ve uncovered. And once you’ve reached perfect health, by all
means, come Saturday night, go out and have that Double Gut Whomper with Cheese
and a bucket of Partially Hydrogenated Fries! Wash it down with a Sam Adams or
one of those new alcoholic pops. Have some fun. Because it’s not what you do
on Saturday night that counts, but what you do the rest of the week.
Our Regimen (For the Rest of the Week)
One of the nicest guys you’d ever want to
meet, with one of the greatest attitudes you’ll ever want to attain hangs out
in AOL’s Cancer Support Chat Room. His name is Rick. He’s supposed to be
dead, at least according to his doctors (or was it his wife?).
He’s using Cesium Chloride.
In our second edition of the Wellness
Directory of Minnesota™ we made a mention to Cesium Chloride, but we hardly
recommend it because of the possible side effects.
Never self-prescribe. Always get a physician
or health care professional to monitor and guide you. For one thing, you need to
take a lot of extra minerals with Cesium Chloride: potassium, calcium in
Cesium Chloride is a dangerous substance if
mishandled. There are a few studies using Cesium Chloride for cancer that showed
significant success, but again, there are other options that are not as
dangerous and that have fewer side effects. One problem with Cesium Chloride is
that it reduces DRAMATICALLY your potassium levels which can lead to a heart
attack. This is why potassium must be taken with Cesium Chloride.
Cesium Chloride tastes terrible (very salty) so one of the best
ways to apply it is to mix it with DMSO and rub into your legs.
Again, you still need extra Potassium, and it's best to not go this
alone. Get a naturopath or osteopath to work with you.
We do know one thing about cancer: Cancer
cannot survive in an alkaline, oxygenated environment.
(The following list is posted at our site in a
separate article called Products To Help You Alkalize. It already has additional
products listed, and it will be kept up to date as we research further on the
We have just discovered alkaline electrolyzed
water. Your author took his pH from 5.8 to 7.0 in just one week on a regimen
of this wonderful water. The problem with Electrolyzed Water is that it is NOT
stable (no matter what anyone tells you), and it quickly turns back into
The companies selling this stuff have bamboozled people into
believing (yes, they got us too) that they have stabilized this
stuff; that the pH will stay where it is for years. However, the
simple truth is that the pH starts to go down right away. We are
still waiting for a company we know of to make a home model that
will produce electrolyzed water for you daily. The machines we've
found thus far are either A. not very good, or B. expensive.
That is until we discovered Balwell:
One of our readers got one and then I got one and
it's just wonderful. Only took one trip to the hardware store to
hook it up to my reverse osmosis filter. One problem depends on your
water, and that is whether you can produce the powerful acidic
water. My water couldn't.
The next best thing is a naturally alkaline water that we've
found (and I use personally) called AquaLyte. I've tested the product. You put one sachet
(tea bag) in a liter of water, let it sit overnight , then shake in
the morning. I've seen it take water that was 5.8 up to 8.8 in just
a few hours.
Personally, I realize that minerals are life. This is just one
reason I add AquaLyte to my alkaline water. Another reason is, the
alkalinity of electrolyzed water begins to drop off right away.
Go to Simply the Best to get some of this excellent water
enhancer right away: AquaLyte.
Sodium Chlorite is a safe, natural substance
that is a precursor to chlorine dioxide. Chlorine dioxide releases oxygen into
the blood stream and, according to Dr Young (his web and his book) it might also
help to clean up foreign materials (toxins) in your blood stream.
With chlorine dioxide flowing through your
body, the oxygen is released slowly which can slow and stop the growth (and
spores) of candida.
One minor problem with Sodium Chlorite is that at medicinal
doses, it causes a lot of nausea.
Update 9/2/08: we first wrote about Sodium Chlorite some 8 years
ago. Since then, it has taken on miraculous attributes. It is now
referred to, on the web, as the Miracle Mineral Solution, or MMS. We
were going to write about this, except that there is so much hype on
the web, we figured that everyone will sooner or later find it.
When you go below the hype, you'll find that what we tell you
here is all you need to know. It won't stop your cold or flu,
reverse cancer or heart disease, or polish your old coins. It's an
important part of alkalizing your terrain, and in doing so, you'll
see many great results, mostly in the form of a lower inflammation
Here is the MMS main web site:
I recommend downloading the first part to Jim Humble's book. It
was interesting. Obviously, Humble is a genius, however, he is no
We are on a mailing list to receive updates on testing of MMS,
and so far no one has cured their cancer with it, and many who tried
to use it in a cancer regimen did not stick to it because of the
nausea. MMS is no great miracle, but it has had some great results.
Green Drinks and Superfoods
You can bet that we’re going to focus on
foods here that will help. Wheat grass and your superfoods are chock full of
minerals and enzymes. The enzymes are both antimycotoxic (clean of the
mycotoxins released by the yeast/fungal infections) and antioxidant, while the
minerals play an important role in keeping cellular communication channels open.
Essential Fatty Acids
The foods we need most are no longer found in our diets.
Essential fatty acids are so volatile, they are removed from our
foods to get a longer shelf life. So many people are avoiding fish
because of mercury that we're no longer getting our fish oils
My favorite form of Omega-3s come in a product called
Omegasentials (google it at our site and you'll find hundreds of
references). In fact, I just got another pack this very day as I'm
writing this. The product is water soluble and stabilized. It will
last longer than any other flax product and since it is water
soluble, it will go to work faster. You can purchase it through
Additionally, I still use Flax Oil, Chia Oil, and Udo's DHA blend
in my home made mayo and salad dressings, and I take an extra EPA
from NOW foods daily.
For those of you worried about your cholesterol, don't. Get your
good fats right here. The better the good fats in your body, the
less your chance of heart disease and that is the simple and plane
truth that your doctor doesn't know because he's never been taught
Garlic is one of the best medicines in the
world. It has natural germanium (see below) and is antifungal and antibacterial
(just to name a few things). Naturopaths recommend up to seven cloves a day
(depending on your stomach and your ability to withstand garlic). And as always,
we must warn you that if you intend to cook using garlic, please crush it up and
let it sit for ten minutes before adding it to your recipe. It has to sit so
that the enzymes can create the wonderful healing phytochemicals you’ll be
We list germanium in our Alternative Cancer
Therapies because it enhances the capabilities of oxygen in our bodies. Dr Young
points out that it has to be an organic germanium, possibly because of the
damage the inorganic kind has been responsible for. Again, I think this is
something to be used only under a physician's care. But by all means, germanium
is a healing element that will add to your negative electrical charge and
increase interferon production (to fight off the parasites and bugs that are
trying to clean up your system.
Potassium Broth Recipe
Fill a large pot with 25% potato
peelings, 25% carrot peelings and whole chopped beets (half and half),
25% chopped onions and garlic (more onions than garlic), 25% celery and
dark greens. Add hot peppers to taste (or cayenne pepper). Add enough
distilled/purified water to cover vegetables and simmer at a very low
temperature for a minimum of 2 hours. Strain and drink only the broth,
put the veggies in a compost (I feed my chickens). Make enough for two
days and refrigerate the leftover broth. Do not store for more than two
Or N-acetyl Cystein; something I take daily. I
love to barbecue. But barbecues have a tendency to fill your body with all sorts
of carcinogens (acrolein is one). NAC is a powerful anticarcinogen,
antimycotoxin and detoxifier. It pulls heavy metals from your body and supports
production of glutathione, the body’s most powerful antioxidant. It is
anti-aging also, and the one mycotoxin, acetaldehyde, that is responsible for so
much collateral damage in our bodies, is totally wiped out by daily use of NAC.
It is truly amazing stuff.
First off, we must monitor our pH. In his
Alkalize or Die, Dr Baroody tells us that there is no good way to measure
our pH because it fluctuates all day long. However, according to Dr Cochrain, a
St Paul, MN Naturopath and Chiropractor, recent studies have shown that if we
take our pH first thing in the morning (before our breakfast or yoga or
anything) and take the pH of both our urine and saliva, that this will give a
the best indication of our pH.
Our pH can be taken by using pH strips. Dip
them in your urine and saliva and compare
the color against the chart.
Next, we must ask ourselves, what are the
major causes of acidity in our society? The following are not listed in the most
acidic to the least acidic, but rather, the most acidic to lesser because of
their usage in our society. Listed at the top is our greatest addiction in
America. Following that, you will see Dr Baroody’s take on the most acidic
"things" within our personal sphere.
1. Caffeine (coffee). I know you’re all
going to hate to know this. The drug of choice in this world today is coffee,
but it is ruining our health. However, if you purchase organically raised, shade
grown coffee, you will not acidify your body to the degree that your standard
coffees will. If you have a coffee addiction, take a look at your general health
and see if you need to get a grip on it.
2. Soda Pop. When I was a kid, pop was a
treat. Today it is a staple. Most people have three or four cans of pop each
day. First off, the sugar in a can of pop will cause your body to become acidic.
Sugar is an acidifier. And if you’re drinking sugar free pop, you’re not
much better off as the aspartame in it turns into formaldehyde and acid in your
3. Anything containing carbon dioxide,
phosphoric acid, aspartame™. If you drink charged water, you are drinking a
waste product. Our bodies give off CO2 as a waste product. Why would anyone want
to drink a waste product (if they thought about it long enough)? Aspartame®
turns into formaldehyde and acid in your body. When you are acidic, your
metabolism gets clogged down. The drink might say "Diet" but you won’t
lose weight with this stuff in your body.
4. Meat, poultry, and fish. All of these
"cooked" proteins cause our bodies to become acidic. Eating them raw
would be a better option but ONLY if the methods we raised them and processed
them were healthier.
5. Sugar. Especially white sugar or high
fructose corn syrup. Anything with sugar added will increase it’s acidifying
properties immensely. Additionally, we learned from Dr Cochrain that just one
teaspoon of sugar will lower your resistance by 50% for up to 24 hours.
(Mountain Dew has 8 tablespoons of sugar in one can.) And don't think
substituting sugar with Aspartame®,
it's even more acidifying (see below).
So, there you have it. Can you drink coffee
and maintain a healthy terrain, yes, but not if you drink to excess. Can you eat
meat and stay alkaline, yes, if you don’t overdo it and balance your meat with
alkalizing fruits and vegetables.
Most Alkaline and Most Acidic
Dr Baroody created a little chart that I wish
you all had. We are going to ask the good doctor for permission to reprint the
entire chart here at our web site, but until then, look at the graph below for a
little hint. You can see his full chart in his book,
or Die. (See our book recommendations at the bottom of this article.)
Toxins Equal Acid
The first thing we must all do is DETOX our
bodies. We start with the colon, then the liver, and then the other organs and
our blood and skin. To learn how to detox, you can read
Cleaning House – The
Correct Way to Detox.
It took us over 4 years to write that original
article, mainly because there are so many methods out there that purport to
detox your body. There are little pills that guarantee to detox your colon,
which don’t really do a thing but take your money and give you the runs.
In natural medicine we focus on two things:
What goes in and what comes out.
Doesn’t what goes in always come out? Nope.
There are those who say that all disease
begins in the colon. This is a pretty strong statement, but if you consider that
the second step in the disease process is when the yeast (that lives in your
colon) takes off, well, I think we’re on to something. Yeast’s purpose is to
break up and soften the stool. If given a chance to flourish, well, we are going
to cover the digestive tract in our next issue of this newsletter.
Yeast begins to flourish in your digestive
tract the moment your digestive process is slowed. In other words, if you don’t
have a bowel movement 24 hours after eating (on a regular basis), your digestive
tract is slow. You have indigestion.
Because indigestion is one of the first steps downhill to a good number of
degenerative diseases, you might wish to read our articles on digestion:
Digestion Part I, and
Digestion Part II.
Detoxing beings in the colon. Everything that
has been gathered up by the liver and by your cholesterol is dumped into the
colon and expelled through your bowel movements. If it stays too long in the
colon, it is reabsorbed.
Also, check out Electrolyzed
Water for a detoxication program. (link temporarily out of order).
But we have found probably the best electrolyzing machine available. Most are
just way overpriced. The
Bawell™ Water Ionizer.
Our Mental Chatter
Here is an experiment. Measure the pH of your
saliva when you are feeling fine. Then, if you get angry (have a fight with your
boss or spouse or for you men, you lose the remote) take your pH then too. And
I did this the other day. I measured my pH at
6.8. That’s a pretty good place to be, between 6.8 and 7.0. However, a few
minutes later, my neighbor called with some sort of horse emergency and darned
if I could find my keys! The moment I uttered my first fiery word, I saw a pack
of pH strips on my desk. I grabbed one and measured my saliva. It was off the chart. I had
battery acid in my mouth (nearly).
The pH of our saliva gives us our emotional
state. The more alkaline the better our state; and the more acidic, the more
emotionally troubled we are. This is a plain and simple fact. If you take care
of your body, but ignore your emotions you will not maintain your terrain.
Hence, we called this regimen an Holistic Approach. We are focusing now on
caring for our entire person, the Holy Trinity, as it were, consisting of the
Body, Mind, and Spirit.
Did you know that attending a church service
will raise your pH? Praying produces negative electrical charges within our
Let us take a look at the water molecule
The hydrogen ion on the left has a positive
charge; the hydroxyl ion on the right has a negative charge. The left is acidic;
the right is alkaline and has oxygen. In nature, opposites attract and these two
form a water molecule consisting of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. This
molecule is balanced, with no charge and is neither alkaline nor acidic, but is
neutral. To maintain proper pH we have to be in balance like the water molecule.
Alkalinity and a negative electrical charge go
together. This is where our magnetic therapies come in, our Yoga and Qigong and
Reike and acupuncture also. This is where a trip to the mountains or the oceans
or the Grand Canyon come in. Love and happiness and families unfettered by
conflict build electrical charges in our bodies.
Oxygenated water (ozone), alkaline water,
negatively charged water and beds giving off negative ions; these are new
products being developed for the sole purpose of charging and alkalizing our
bodies. They don’t cure any particular disease, they just make our terrains
well again. And, as you will see in the article Electrolyzed
Water (link temporarily not working) when you
care for the terrain, you just get healthier, no matter what the problem.
I highly recommend the book Alkalize or Die,
but it is presently out of print and hard to find, though I found a bunch of
copies by searching the web. The author lists foods and their alkalizing
(acidifying) potentials. Most fruits and vegetables (especially the dark green
ones) are alkalizing. Exceptions are plums, blueberries, and cranberries. It is
good to note that even something acidifying can still contain healthful
nutrients. Meat contains CoQ10, which is needed for energy at the cellular
level. Without it, your cells die. Blueberries contain phytochemicals that fight
heart disease and cancer. Tomatoes are just a tiny bit alkalizing, but can fight
all sorts of cancers and protect the prostate, that is, if they are not cooked
all day long in aluminum pots.
Dr Revici, who developed a very unique cancer
regimen, referred to foods as either anabolic (constructive) or catabolic
(destructive); this was Revici’s way of categorizing foods that cause our
bodies to turn alkaline or acidic. One thing he noted, along with a few other
physicians (like Dr Albert Schweitzer), is that sugar and salt are catabolic.
However, Revici was referring to white sugar and ordinary table salt (Celtic Sea Salt is anabolic because of all the minerals
[colloids] it contains). See
The Revici Method
in an early newsletter.
Most sugars are acidifying. Honey is not.
Sucanat™ is just a bit alkalizing. All products with sugar added are
acidifying. Processed foods are definitely acidifying.
Here is something I just learned and really
have to pass on to you. Take any pickle from your local supermarket. It is
terribly acidifying. Now, take a pickle that you made at home, using
Celtic Sea Salt, organic non-pasteurized apple cider vinegar, fresh organic cucumbers (and
onions and garlic and peppers) and fresh organic spices, and you have the exact
opposite of an acidifier. You have an alkalizer. Again, this is just one more
reason to eat organic whole foods. Here are our
Healthy Pickle Recipes.
And always keep in mind that just because
something is alkaline or acidic IN ITSELF doesn’t mean that it will pass that
property to your terrain. The author of Alkalize or Die did a lot of research
for this book to show that you don’t know what something will do to your body
till it is tested. So, pick up a copy of that book. Remember? Lemons are very
acidic, but in your body they are a potent alkalizer.
Oh, and asparagus. Don’t forget the
asparagus. Dr Baroody points out that any food that has been frozen, canned,
etc. will lose a half a point in his alkalizing scale. Basically, the more
processed a food is, the less alkalizing it is. His chart goes from 0 to 8, 8
being alkalizing to the fullest, and 0 being acidifying (to the fullest). But
asparagus is one vegetable that is always alkalizing no matter what form it is in
(though, yes, when canned it does drop that property slightly).
In fact, there is an asparagus cancer cure, in
which all you eat is asparagus (a mono diet is a diet of one thing).
And don’t forget melons. All your melons are
Beets ─ A Special
Beets have been on everyone's mind because of heavy advertising.
The reason for the hullabaloo is that beets, besides being very
alkalizing, they provide the "miracle molecule," nitric oxide. The
importance of NO (nitric oxide) in the body is so great that the
three scientists who described its actions in the body were awarded
the Nobel Prize in 1988.
Nitric Oxide: prevents blood clots, relaxes blood vessels,
enlarges blood vessels, regulates blood pressure, improves
circulation reducing stress on the heart, reduces the accumulation
of acidic plaque, and mediates inflammation and pain. [Nitric
Oxide Pain and Inflammation]
Our article on beets is worth reading:
Beet Juice ― Great Stuff or
Latest Fad? And if you don't read this, you should know that
Simply the Best has made available to our readers the most
inexpensive, organic beet juice powder available, right here:
And finally, let us jump back to the late 18
hundreds and Antoine Béchamp. He discovered that drinking Lemon Squash all day
long was one of the healthiest things anyone could do. What is Lemon Squash?
is water with a little lemon in it. In her book, The Fat Flush
Gittleman has you drink one half lemon in hot water daily during the first phase
of her diet plan. After that, you drink water with lemon all day long. This
keeps the kidneys working and helps to alkalize the body. It was good for you
over a hundred years ago, and it’s still good for you.
In the heat of the summer, we see people
drinking gallons and gallons of pop, ice tea, ice frapacinos, you name it. There
is nothing like home made lemonade for alkalizing on a hot summer day.
Juice fresh lemons till you have a full cup of
lemon juice (or a bit more if you like it strong). Then boil up water, and put
between a quarter cup to a half cup of honey in a large bowl. The amount is up
to you, the more the sweeter. Mix in the boiling water, just a little, to melt
all the honey. Then in a large pitcher, pour the honey mixture and lemon juice.
Add up to 64 ounces (a half gallon) of water.
You can avoid the boiling if you substitute Maple Syrup or Agave
Nectar for the honey, however, honey is the only alkalizing
sweetener (though just slightly).
Let's go over the ingredients ratios one more time:
½ Cup lemon juice to
32 oz of water, with ¼
to ½ cup honey (or
substitute) depending on your taste.
Better still, ten scoops of
Better Stevia (using the enclosed scooper).
To make this drink even better, you can thinly
slice some lemons and add the slices. Then try this: slice up some fresh
strawberries and add those.
Next, add the smallest pinch of pure
Original Himalayan Crystal Salt
™, just to get a kick from it's inherent energy.
And now you've got something. Refreshing,
alkalizing, and when you're through drinking, you still have some fresh
strawberry slices to munch on.
Remember, the fewer chemicals in your food,
the more alkalizing it is. This is why your best lemonade will be made from
Vinegar & Honey (Elixir of Life)
Julius Caesar and George Washington gave it to
their troops before battle. Hippocrates gave it to all his patients. In the
Pharaohs tombs, they sealed it in large vases to take this into the next world.
It helps to oxygenate the cells, improve circulation, balance your pH, normalize
thyroid function and metabolism, rid the body of lactic acid and calcium
deposits, increase circulation, absorption, and assimilation of vitamins and
minerals. A simple mixture of Vinegar & Honey. But the vinegar must be raw,
non-pasteurized, apple cider vinegar. All other vinegars are catabolic (acid
Some people like to mix them full strength in
the morning and drink it down: a shot of vinegar and a shot of honey together.
However, we got this ancient formula and will present it here:
Mix 1 cup of the apple cider vinegar with ½
cup of honey (can use less or more honey, depending on your taste. You will take
three tablespoons daily.
One way to drink this is by mixing 3 tablespoons with 2 to 36 oz (the more fluid
will not lessen the potency, as long as you drink it all in the same day) of
water, juice or tea and sip on it throughout the day.
Oxygen is Life
Have you ever heard of the Yogis who went into
a trance and were buried for 30 days or more, and when they were dug up, they
were in perfect health?
There are stories of Yogis who died, and their
bodies did not start to rot for a month.
Their secret was oxygen. Yogis practice
breathing exercises that charge their cells with oxygen. Practitioners of
various modalities of meditations, yoga, and qigong live longer than people who
do not practice these "internal" arts. This is because part of the
practice is deep breathing and oxygen is alkalizing.
Oxygen is life.
Deep Breathing Exercises
First we must talk about the way we breathe,
here in our society.
Next time you get a chance, watch a baby
breathing. The baby never stops. Breathing is one continual movement. Watch a
dog breathe. Same thing. One continual movement.
In our society, we stop breathing. In the
middle of a crossword puzzle, hanging a frame, repairing a toaster, or untying a
knot, most of us suddenly stop breathing to focus on our work.
We learned this young, the moment we got into
trouble and heard our name yelled out at us. We stopped breathing.
Now, back to that baby. If the baby is lying
supine, watch the baby’s tummy. With every breath, the tummy goes up and down.
Right now, close your eyes and observe how you
breathe. Is your breath caught up in your chest or does it go deep down into
Adults have forgotten how to do these
"baby breaths." Most of us breathe into our upper lungs and raise our
shoulders. Only a portion of our lungs exist up there. The diaphragm is below
our lungs where most of the air sacs exist.
Deep breathing means (besides learning to
breathe all over again) thrusting the diaphragm downward pushing out our tummies
(no one likes to appear in public with their tummy extended) first and then
filling our chests afterwards. This is hard to practice at first, but believe
me, you’ll get used to it.
Deep Breathing Exercise #1
You can do this in any position - lying,
sitting or standing.
- Quiet the room of distractions like turning
off the television or closing the door.
- Close your eyes.
- Take a deep breath in through your nose.
Pretend you are sniffing a flower. When you inhale, your abdomen or stomach
should rise and then your chest. Hold for a few seconds.
- Exhale in reverse pattern through your
mouth. Let your body relax and go limp. Do this over a few seconds.
- As you inhale, you can say to yourself,
"I am" and with exhaling saying "relaxed."
- Repeat this as long as you need (a few to
Notes: If you feel like you are short of
breath, take a few regular breaths and when you feel better, continue the deep
When tense or anxious, your breathing becomes
irregular and shallow. Deep breathing has long been known to have relaxing
properties. Oxygen tends to revitalize, energize and relax.
Deep Breathing Exercise #2
- Lie on the ground or sit in a position
where your spine is straight.
- Tense all the muscles in your body
completely as you inhale. Concentrate on the tension and hold tight while
slowly counting to ten.
- Gradually let the muscles go as you exhale
and feel the contrast. Try to let go and relax totally. Repeat two to three
times. Exhale completely.
Notes: To check whether you are breathing into
your lower abdomen, place one hand on your chest and the other on the abdomen
Inhale and feel which hand moves the most. If
your breathing is efficient, the lower hand should move the most.
Once you’ve learned to breathe into your
tummy, inhale very, very slowly, allowing the breath to enter effortlessly
through your nose. At the same time, push out your abdomen as though you were
blowing up a balloon in your belly. Move your chest as little as possible.
After your abdomen is stretched, expand your
chest with air. This fills up the middle part of your lungs. Hold the breath for
about five seconds and then slowly begin to exhale. As you do so, let your
abdomen fall and relax. Repeat this for twenty breaths. Focus your attention on
the movement of your abdomen as you inhale and exhale.
Simple Weight Loss
As touted above with the Vinegar & Honey
mixture and the effect this solution has on the thyroid and metabolism, when we
alkalize our bodies (add oxygen) our metabolism rises. If you don’t have a
thyroid problem, just alkalizing your body will help you to lose a few pounds.
Now, I’m not about to leave you here
hanging. Over the next few months, we’re going to focus on foods, products,
supplements and methods of alkalizing our bodies. We want to review a variety of
waters (many of you know that one of my greatest interests involves water). And
if you have anything to add, please send it along!
