As a proud mom of three kids (now ages 24, 20, and 11!) and a lifelong advocate and researcher of natural birthing and eco-mothering, I am so excited to share our Aquae A.M.O.R.E. water with you. In a way, this water beautifully embodies much of the wisdom that I have had the privilege of learning through my years of research among traditional midwives and wise wo/men, where healing and wellness do not come from a pill or a quick-fix medical procedure, but the simple waters/tonics, herbs, and living foods that we drink and ingest on a day-to-day basis. The age-old adage “you are what you eat” translates well into “you are what you drink,” especially during such an important and transformational life passage as pregnancy, birthing, and nursing.
During my many years as an actively nursing mother, I learned to be careful with the foods I ate and the liquids I drank, knowing that anything and everything I consumed would be directly transformed into breastmilk for my baby. Because breastmilk is 88% water, I knew I had to be especially conscious with the quality of water I drank, whether plain or via herbal teas, soups, or juices.
I happily gave-up drinking or cooking with water from the tap long ago due to a number of undesirable contaminants, toxins, and chemicals (such as lead, arsenic, chlorine, cadmium, mercury, formaldehyde, rocket fuel, and even remnants of pharmaceutical drugs from human fecal matter) that fail to get removed from our municipal water supply; I ruled out drinking water from single-use plastic bottles due to the discovery of the female-hormone-altering chemicals BPA (bisphenol-A) and even BPS, not to mention all the accumulating waste that would result from it (check out the plastic vortex in the Northern Pacific Ocean on YouTube – it’s disheartening and alarming); I had 5-gallon jugs of “purified” reverse-osmosis water, both from self-serve water dispensaries and special delivery services, but eventually stopped it all because I discovered that the prolonged use of such “empty” water leaches the body and bones of essential minerals; I had my husband attach both over-the-counter and under-the-sink water filters that also had the capacity to alkalize and ionize, but realized, to my disappointment, that such "ionizing" systems alkalized through artificial means by damaging the structural integrity of the water and they were not heavy-duty enough for our county’s heavily-laden recycled waste water (better known as tap water), as I could still taste and see the chalky murkiness despite its high pH.
So after years of searching and researching for quality drinking water for our family – one that is not only pure, but nourishing and energizing (as well as affordable for a family with hungry/thirsty little mouths to feed!) – my dear Norwegian husband (a health/wellness coach and your general know-it-all with just about everything that’s good-for-you) and I (a baby-lovin’ mama and eco-feminist scholar/artist) have finally taken it upon ourselves to “brew” our ideal elixir: Aquae A.M.O.R.E., meaning Waters of Love.
Yes, we LOVE our water. We love that it is ultra-pure, deeply nourishing, vibrationally cleansed, and structurally beautiful! And we love that we can serve it to you with our deepest commitment and gratitude. So welcome … relaaaax, unwind, take a deep breath, and drink to your heart’s delight …. literally!
