WHY HEALTHIER WATER?
Do you often wish that your body would perform at higher optimal levels than what they currently are?
What you are drinking could be affecting your health!
Your body is made up of approximately 75% water. In order for your organs to function properly and more efficiently you need to hydrate your body regularly.
Healthier Water is delicious water created from Enagic’s innovative water technology. Not only do these devices filter your tap water they also produce ionized alkaline and acidic waters through electrolysis. These waters can be used for various purposes, including drinking, cooking, beauty, and cleaning.
IS TAP WATER ANY GOOD?
Tap water is a healthier option than soft drinks. However according to the Environmental Working Group, there have been 315 pollutants found in America’s tap water since 2004 and over half of these pollutants are completely unregulated and can legally exist in any amount.
At the current levels of contamination, the public is starting to question the quality of tap water and wonders if it is safe enough to drink. Based on these facts, it’s no wonder that the demand for Kangen Water® is constantly increasing.
In Australia we still have fluoride in our water, something which many people are now waking up to and don’t wish to consume and so they are looking for healthier alternatives.
AM I BETTER WITH BOTTLED WATER?
Bottled water is not necessarily healthier than tap water and yet it costs much more! Although associated with healthy water, bottled water is not guaranteed to be any healthier than tap water. Often the only difference is the added minerals which have no proven health benefits and even after completing a pH test bottled water was found to be more acidic than tap water.
A four-year study by the Natural Resources Defense Council shows that 1/3 of the bottled water tested contains levels of contamination which exceed allowable limits. Bottled water can also be slightly acidic, which may affect your body’s pH balance. Finally, the environmental impact caused by the production and disposal of plastic bottles is harmful to our ecosystem. If you consider all these factors you would start to question whether bottled water is any good at all. Also consider the recycling factor on the bottom of plastics too – now that’s another whole conversation all together.
SURELY REVERSE OSMOSIS IS BETTER THEN?
Reverse Osmosis is a filtering process which may be effective in areas that do not receive municipally treated water and is commonly used in bottled water facilities. The problem with this process is that dangerous chemicals like pesticides, herbicides, and chlorine are molecularly smaller than water and can pass freely through the filter. Test this type of water with a pH test compared to all other waters too.
Reverse osmosis removes healthy, naturally occurring water minerals. These minerals not only provide good taste, they also serve a vital function in the body’s system. When stripped of these minerals, water can be unhealthy. Also, 2-3 gallons of water are wasted for every gallon of purified water produced.
WHERE DO I START THEN?
There seems to be so many conflicting stories about what is the best water to drink. When we started out, we took the first initial steps of using filter jugs, it wasn’t the best option however it was better than straight tap water. As our knowledge and understanding grew, we decided we wanted more and better options.
It was when we got introduced to the Enagic Kangen machines that we really started to notice the benefits to our health. The next step for us is to obtain the Anespa shower unit and also to include a fluoride unit to our machine. So just do what feels right for you at this point in time. You can always upgrade as your knowledge and finances allows.

What Is Certified Organic?
When you see a Certified Organic certification logo, it is your promise that the product is ;
- 100% NATURALLY DERIVED
- CRUELTY FREE
- GMO FREE
- CHEMICAL, PESTICIDE & INSECTICIDE FREE
- CREATED WITH SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION
- MONITORED BY AN EXTERNAL BODY FROM EARTH TO STORE
Why is choosing Certified Organic important?
Did you know that in Australia, a company can claim something is “organic” if it contains only one “natural” ingredient, yet it may contain MANY & MULTIPLE synthetic and highly toxic chemicals?
This is a practice called ‘greenwashing’ & is unfortunately, big business. Until such time as the Australian law changes, WE as consumers need to be vigilant in our choices.
Whilst the word ORGANIC may be a marketing buzzword, CERTIFIED ORGANIC is not.
Certified Organic products are true representations of nature and are the consumers ONLY guarantee that the products they are purchasing are free from ALL toxic & synthetic ingredients.
5 Reasons To Choose Certified Organic …
- 60% of what ever you apply on your skin is absorbed directly in to your blood stream. The average woman puts over 200+ chemicals a day on her skin. Research is showing our babies are being born pre-polluted with on average over 200 chemicals in their little bodies at birth.
- The Cosmetics Industry in Australia is self-regulating. This means the very people who create conventional cosmetics (skin, hair, beauty, personal, baby, oral care products) are the very people who deem whether those products and the chemicals used in them are safe.
- Chemicals are used in everyday products on the basis they are safe until proven otherwise. No health studies or pre-market testing is required for cosmetic or personal care products. The reality (if you are not choosing Certified Organic) is that there are literally thousands of chemicals used in everyday products that have never been tested for safety.
- Many conventional personal care & beauty products contain a multitude of highly toxic chemicals linked directly to illness & disease.
- Green ‘washing’ is BIG BUSINESS. There is a huge misrepresentation in relation to the use of the word organic. A company can claim something is “organic” if it contains one natural ingredient, yet it may contain hundreds of chemicals and still be labelled … organic or natural. Certified Organic is your only guarantee if you wish to purchase chemical free product.

Hi I'm 'Cowboy' Don...
Over the years in the international media I've been referred to as, "The Indiana Jones of Wholefood Medicine" because of my 17 year quest that took me around the world in search of an ancient sacred meal called, Pulse.
Even though I'm widely considered 'an enemy in the camp' of the health care industry, ironically I'm invited in to share my perspective at medical symposiums all around the world.
It's interesting to me that so often when I get up in front of hundreds and even thousands of doctors, scientist and researchers at these events, the audience is freaked out by my renegade look, but pretty soon I am just about always receiving applause and even standing ovations.
And it's not because of "me".
It's because I'm all about cutting through the BS and bringing back the wisdom of our brilliant ancestors who understood the physics of nature around them and how it relates tobeing healthy and avoiding sickness and disease.
The vast majority of Doctor's visits are completely unnecessary, and in my opinion, are leading people down a path that is actually doing more harm than good.
The problem is that there is so much corporate interest and financial weight behind government backed "health care" - which also influences the media and the masses - that it's tough to see the truth unless you go searching for it.
And so for nearly 50 years now publicly, I've been all about helping people to wake up and consider a more logical, reasonable, common-sense path that I call, SELF CARE.
Self Care is everything because your health is everything.
And when you gain the knowledge and confidence to embrace the principles of health, you no longer live in fear and uncertainty because you realise that no 'credentialed expert' could possibly know more about your body than you.
Now, please don't get me wrong.
I do agree with about the 2% of work that the health care industry does, which is in the treatment of crises and trauma, immediately following accidents.
And I do realise that many experts within the medical world are very sincere about wanting to be involved in a career helping people.
The problem is that their training has been put in place by an industry whose primary global, agenda is the perpetuation and treatment of sickness and disease for profit.
For decades I've had the opportunity to be involved with doctors, medical groups, scientific researchers and to work with literally thousands of people around the world who have been failed by the "healthcare" system.
And it's through this process, that I’ve come to realise that about 98% of what the health care industry does, is actually doing more harm than good.
My purpose is to not only raise awareness about the pitfalls of “health care”, but to simply share the wisdom of self care that your ancestors wanted you to know.
From there, you'll have the knowledge and power to choose a path that's right for you and to even learn to heal yourself and live a happy, healthy, dis-ease free life.

EnviroCare Earth was created by a concerned Western Australian mother who was worried that chemicals in daily products that she used on her children and herself were harming them and the environment. The enviroCare Earth brand has grown since then, and is now proudly owned by a Western Australian family company that is still as passionate & serious about promoting products that have as minimal an effect on your health & our environment while maintaining an efficacy equivilant to expensive & less conscientious ranges.
We use sustainably sourced plant based ingredients in keeping with the ethos that our company was based on when it was formed in 1994.
enviroCare was one of the founding brands that was keen to supply the market with an alternative to the toxic & unnecessary chemicals in the early years and has since grown to be a brand that is respected and valued Australia wide.
Removing ingredients that have been found to either cause environmental or personal harm has always been a priority and over the years we have been able to make our range significantly safer for people and the environment. enviroCare (since 2011) has removed all palm oil due to the environmental damage inflicted on the earth and it's native animals. In the process and manufacture of palm oil extraction the damage to the environment is extensive and not sustainable . Our products are now all formulated with coconut and other plant based oils providing all the benefits for our skin & hair without denuding or upsetting the balance of our natural environment. Using enviroCare products in your bathroom and kitchen will also assist with daily cleaning as all of our products are soap free and do not contain animal fats that can cause scum and soap build up on glass and surfaces.
Our ranges economical sizes are a bonus for families and to reduce landfill because you have the opportunity to dispence into your own containers or original enviroCare smaller size containers. We believe that conscientious usage of all personal & household products and the packaging is something we can all do to lighten the load for our bodies and our planet.
enviroCare products are suitable for vegans as we do not use any animal or by products of animals, including bees wax.
All enviroCare Earth products are based on the highest quality plant based ingredients, and are sustainable and locally sourced where possible.

Food Matters: You Are What You Eat
This is how Laurentine and I came up with Food Matters. If we couldn’t get my father to read about nutrition and natural health, we figured we could probably convince him to watch a film on the subject. We had researched many of the films that existed on the topic. Although many were good and some were excellent, we weren’t convinced that any of these films would win over my father. Let’s face it, the alternative health industry has a bit of a bad reputation. When most people picture a natural therapist, they envision a man or a woman in sweatpants or a dashiki spinning crystals in his or her backyard. They certainly don’t picture a doctor who can help them get better. And Roy was no different. We knew he needed to see natural health in a new light. So we decided to make a film that would restore the image of the wonderful men and women who, through their life-changing work, live up to Hippocrates’s famous saying, “Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.”
We invested our life’s savings into making Food Matters. We bought some film equipment and traveled around the world—from Holland, Laurentine’s home country, and England to the East and West Coasts of the United States, and then Australia—to interview all of the doctors, nutritionists, scientists, and wellness experts we had been studying throughout Roy’s illness.
After our second month of filming, we brought the raw footage to Roy, telling him we weren’t leaving until he got well. We were on a mission, and no one could stop us—not even Roy or his team of doctors. As a family, we watched the unedited interviews. Before long, Roy was hooked. What stood out, he told us later, was the story about one of his many medications and how it often caused suicidal thoughts. This was Roy’s worst fear. He couldn’t believe the pharmaceutical and medical industries would knowingly produce and sell a product that could potentially cause people to physically harm themselves. Not only was modern medicine’s better-living- through- chemistry approach not helping, it was making him worse. Almost immediately, he went from believing in the medical profession to believing in the age-old adage “You are what you eat.”
