In the first part of the fluoride series which you can read here: Click link, I shared about the problem with fluoride, my own personal journey discovering this and ways it can impact your health.
It’s clear this outdated practice of adding fluoride chemicals to the water supply is ready to stop.
However change takes time and in order for the outside world to change you have to change within.
Yes of course we need the government to change this policy but for this to happen we need a movement of conscious people just like you. You can take responsibility and let your life be a message for others you touch. This is how the microcosm changes the macrocosm, as within so without.
What you focus on grows, if you energise the problem of fluoride you keep it in place.
Your time and energy is better invested in creating the vision of pure drinking water. Once your vision is in place, you can align your actions to safely detox your body and reduce your exposure to fluoride.
I’m going to share with you what I’ve done in my life over the past 9 years since I first learnt about fluoride. I’ve evolved my practice as I keep updating my knowledge from emerging science and holistic communities.

Ways you can reduce your exposure to fluoride
The easiest first step is to switch your toothpaste to a fluoride free version. I love to use the Toothfaerie remineralising toothpaste which I’ve been using for the past few months and its helped me heal a cavity naturally along with celery juice and a raw plant based diet. It’s zero waste and handmade with love in Ireland.
There’s a 10% discount on the Toothfaerie 85ml toothpastes until the 16th August 2019 using the code AFG TOOTHHEALTH. Orders can be made through their email email@example.com or on Facebook click here. The jar of toothpaste retails online at €6.50 but I’ve found it lasts way longer than your average tube of toothpaste so it’s great value and zero waste. If you order a few jars in bulk you make a saving on the shipping costs.
The second step is to filter your tap water. I personally have used a reverse osmosis for the past 9 years that supplies all my drinking water. I fill up glass jars and stainless bottles to bring my water with me when I travel where possible.
Here’s the link to the filter I use in my home, click here.
I used to drink mineral water from plastic bottles but I don’t want to contribute to the consumption of single use plastic as much as humanly possibly. According to an investigation done by the Environmental Working Group, “PET plastics (the kind used to make plastic water bottles) can contain dozens of chemical additives, manufacturing impurities and breakdown byproducts. That’s more than 80 additional contaminants that could be leaching into your water.”
I’ve used a water distillation unit at one point for doing experiments but I sold on the unit as I’m happy using the reverse osmosis. I’ve friends who use it and they really like it.
The other option I’d look at is a Berkey filter I haven’t bought one yet but from reading customer reviews online it’s a really popular choice. I’ll be investing in one soon for travelling with my fiance Richie in his camper van as it’s gravity fed and doesn’t need electricity. When placing your order make sure to include the fluoride filters Click here.
Keep in mind that all filters need to be changed—don’t forget or you’ll have even more toxins in your glass! And don’t forget to factor filter replacements into your budget. It works out way cheaper than buying plastic bottles each week so it’s definitely worth the investment for both your health and your bank account.
Reducing fluoride exposure is going to help your health and your families. It’s a great investment in your long term health.
