OUR LIVING WATER
Our HOOsick Hickory ElixirTM is made with "living
artesian aquifer located on our property.
What benefit does living water have
over other forms of water or even tap water?
Our living water does not contain the
contaminants or chemicals that you may find in tap
water or in other types of water. Our living
water also has a high mineral content. The body
needs the minerals found in living water
to function at the highest possible level.
Different Types of Water
Living water differs from other waters
in many ways. Some bottled waters are simply
tap water that have been purified, which removes
both contaminants and essential minerals from the
water. Bottled tap water usually lacks the full flavor
of living water and does not provide any minerals
to the body. If the water you drink is filtered or
processed in any way, it is "dead water."
Types of contaminants include:
~ Acid rain ~ Toxins from factories ~
~ Ground contaminants ~ Bacteria ~
Our living water comes from an underground
source that is deep within the earth. It is
an old water, meaning it is fossil water that has
been flowing underground for perhaps millions of years!
Our living water is under layers of rock that cannot
be penetrated by acid rain, bacteria or toxins, so
it is protected from all above ground contaminants.
Minerals in Living Water
Living water typically has a high mineral
and electrolyte content. The human body needs
minerals for proper functioning and for development
of the bones and other organs. Electrolytes, such as
sodium and potassium, keep the body in balance. An electrolyte becomes an ion when absorbed by the
human body. It sends electrical impulses throughout
the body, which keeps the body functioning as it
should. Some of the minerals and electrolytes
found in living water include:
~ Silica: an essential mineral for the body. A lack of
silica in the body can lead to joint problems and
bone deformities. Silica in raw artesian water
also gives it body and taste.
~ Bicarbonate: an electrolyte that keeps the pH of
the blood in balance. Without adequate bicarbonate,
the blood can become too acidic. If the pH level of
the blood is not balanced, a person may feel tired
and have low energy levels.
~ Fluoride: a mineral that can protect the teeth and
prevent cavities and decay. Fluoride is often added to municipal water. It's found naturally in raw artesian water.
~ Calcium: a mineral needed for strong bones as well
as for muscle and nerve functioning.
~ Magnesium: a chemical element which is known as an alkaline earth metal abundant in earth's crust. Magnesium
is found in the body where it is stored half in the bones
and half in the other organs and cells and is crucial for normal muscle and nerve function. Magnesium is also
related to strong bones and a healthy immune system.
WHAT'S IN YOUR WATER?
By combining our mineral rich, living water with
the bark of the shagbark hickory tree, we created our proprietary HOOsick Hickory ExtractTM. By adding raw,
local honey, to the HOOsick Hickory ExtractTM, we
created our HOOsick Hickory ElixirTM, that we use as a
pain reliever for arthritis and many other types of pain.
Based on the fact that there are approximately 1.3
million people in the United States that have rheumatoid arthritis and an estimated 27 million people in the
United States with osteoarthritis, we think that our HOOsick Hickory ElixirTM could help a large number of people alleviate a very significant amount of pain!
