My prior blog was why to drink water before working out. I didn’t mention what type of water is best.
It reminds me of a few reasons I love Carlsbad, CA. The sunsets are STUNNING.
It’s a great place to be outdoors to walk, run, hike or swim if you’re athletic like me.
But the BEST thing about it is WATER. Besides the ocean, it has THE most healthful drinking water in the world.
I visited my brother every year, but decided to get a place there three years ago. That’s when I got to explore.
And that’s when I learned Carlsbad Mineral Water is therapeutic alkaline water made by nature, not man.
I called my brother who has lived in Carlsbad for twenty-five years, and he said he never heard of it.
He asked his then girlfriend (now wife) and she never heard of it either. I asked them if they saw the spa or the large stainless steel tank that holds the water. Neither one of them knew anything about it. How could they miss the GIANT kiosk?!
Look at it. It’s a GIANT kiosk in the middle of the street. That’s me goofing around saying, “Oh…what could THIS possibly be??” Guess my powers of observation are honed by being a journalist.
The kiosk is right next to a statue of the Captain from Germany who founded Carlsbad. They missed that too. The water is like the water in Karlsbad, Germany, which Carlsbad was named after in the 1880′s.
AND the water is only 50 cents per gallon. So, I religiously took my 6 gallon jug and filled it at the outdoor vending machine.
The water is from an underground aquifer that drains naturally from the Cleveland National Forest at 1700 feet below the surface.
The water is also naturally alkaline at pH 8.7.
Here’s some History on H20 and why alkaline water is THE most healthful water in the world:
Dr. Ottow Warburg won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1931 for proving that cancer can’t survive in an alkaline, oxygen rich environment but thrives in an acidic, low oxygen environment.
Think about that. One foundation alone raised hundreds of millions of dollars, yet this proven fact discovered 81 years ago has not been studied. Let me repeat:
CANCER CAN’T SURVIVE IN AN ALKALINE, OXYGEN RICH ENVIRONMENT. CALL MR. GRANT!!!
No wonder people drove 125 miles or from all over the world for this water.
Therapeutic Carlsbad Alkaline Water ™ is amazing. Here are some benefits and I personally experienced them:
* Lubricate joints and make them stronger – improve athletic hydration
* Provide powerful anti-oxidants and fortifies the immune system
* Neutralize acidity, support pH balance, maintain strong bones
* Improve body, organ and cell hydration – easier to absorb
* Rejuvenate the skin, keep it more elastic and smooth
* Promote healthy weight loss and lifestyle
* Remove harmful toxins from the body
* Detoxification enzymes
Of course, they can’t say cures cancer, but if I had cancer I would drink it, bathe in it and swim in it.
You can also have the water delivered to your home anywhere in Southern California.
Carlsbad Alkaline Water ™ has been proclaimed “The Most Healthful Water” by the California State Senate, and their artesian well and location have been designated by the California legislature as both a California Historic Site and a California Historic Monument.
The city of Carlsbad has named the Carlsbad Artesian Well a Carlsbad Historic Site and the “North County Times” newspaper wrote a story about their water and called it “Eden In A Glass.”
Nowhere else in the United States can you find so unique 9,500 years naturally aged alkaline and therapeutic water with pH 8.76 that tastes so good and has such a positive effect on your health.
WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?
Turns out, the water comes from a 1,700 foot deep aquifer and is protected with 200 feet of non porous clay and 1,500 feet of granite rock. The water originates from the Cleveland National Forest about 40 miles east of Carlsbad completely protected from any pollution or any possible radiation fall-out. It takes about 9,500 years for the water to work its way through the substrata to their deep artesian wells just a block from the Pacific Ocean, where it is discharged at the deep bottom.
Along the way, it is naturally enhanced with pure minerals that turn the water into a highly alkaline, therapeutic, ultrahydrating and healthful. It is not filtered munincipal water. It flows naturally into their artesian wells from the deep aquifer. It is sodium free, not carbonated, not fluridated, not chlorinated, highly alkaline (not acidic) and exceeds FDA bottled-water quality standards.
The alkaline water has a unique pH 8.76 and TDS 50. Their source-artesian well and vending machines are licensed by the California Department of Public Health and monitored and tested weekly, as required by FDA, federal and state laws.
Many doctors and nutritionists use their alkaline water in their business and homes and highly recommend it.
History Since 1882
The year was 1882 when John Frazier, former sea captain, was digging a well for his farm which covered much of today’s downtown area of Carlsbad, California.Frazier struck at 415 feet an aquifer health resort, so the named the water Carlsbad Mineral Water. Today of mineral water. encouraged by his success, he sank another well at 510 feet.
Analysis showed the mineral water was very similar to the water from the world-famous Karlsbad, Bohemia, health resort, so they named the water Carlsbad Mineral Water. today Karlsbad is known as Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic.Frazier and many other people found the water to be very therapeutic and have experienced many positive health benefits.
Frazier and several other businessmen formed the Carlsbad Land and Mineral Water Company. They built beautiful homes (today on is known as Ocean House Restaurant), a hotel, and spa next to the minerals wells. They also renamed the town from Frazier Station to Carlsbad after the famous California Carlsbad Mineral Water.
In 1930, the California Carlsbad Mineral Water Hotel was built across the street from the well. The hotel was widely known for its Mineral Water Baths and was frequented by movie stars and other famous people from around the world. The Great Depression brought hard times to this hotel. The well needed repair but there was no money to do it.
The well was lost for a number of years.In 1993 Ludvik Grigoras, a Karlovy Vary (Karlsbad, Czech Republic) native started to completely restore the old well and re-drilled another of Frazier’s wells which is naturally carbonated.Ludvik encouraged a hometown friend, renowned sculptor Vaclav Lokvenc from Karlsbad, Czech Republic, to create a 13 ft. bronze statue of Capt. John Frazier which was shipped from Europe in 1994 and is now erected at the Alt Karlsbad Historic Site.
California Historic Site & Monument – City Historic Site Today, Carlsbad Famous Water is being bottled again, and an elegant spa has opened in the beautiful European-style building on he site of the original we located only a few miles from Legoland. The design and decorating were personally done by Ludvik and Veronica Grigoras to duplicate a unique ambiance of early Egypt, Rome and the Orient. All the artwork, paintings and furniture were hand painted by famous artist Robin Wallenfang.
My brother, his wife and their one-year-old have had it delivered to their home ever since I told them about it. My brother is always asking how I look so much younger than him, since he’s the baby in the family.
I don’t know. Maybe it’s the water. :-)
