Why Purify

Spraying water on a bowl of greens

When the water plumbed throughout your home is likely to contain parasites, bacteria, pesticides and viruses, you can't afford to be careless. Health professionals assert that prevention of infection by dangerous pathogens is far easier than their removal from an infected person. It can take years to recover from a parasitic infection as many Baja Sur residents can readily attest to.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reports that 90 percent of the world’s water is contaminated in some way and viruses are found in drinking water all over the world. Many pathogens are waterborne – meaning they live and are disseminated through our water sources.

In 2004-­2005 Niparaja AC, conducted a study of the water quality in 500 potable water wells in the state of Baja California Sur (BCS), Mexico. They determined that 42% of the wells have fecal contamination during the dry season, and 100% during the rainy season. Fecal contamination propagates waterborne diseases such as diarrhea, hepatitis and cholera, among others. It is also a manner in which viruses are transmitted.

Many of us are living with chronic parasitic infections we are unaware of because symptoms are not gastro related. We unwittingly believe that once the gastrointestinal disorder is gone, so is the infection. This is far from true. Many parasites leave the digestive tract to travel throughout our bodies, nestling into tissues, joints, or organs where they continue to thrive.

Having a Water Ways Baja system provides you with total control over the quality of the water you use in your home.

A Water Ways Baja system eliminates dangerous pathogens and sends purified water throughout your home at the high pressure you enjoy in your modern home. Brush your teeth in the shower? Feel free.


As a health practitioner both living and working as an acupuncturist here in Todos Santos, I am frequently asked how people can change their living conditions here to improve and maintain their health. One of the most common issues I see here are gastrointestinal problems. Having your own clean water system drastically reduces the incidences of GI disturbances. Less skin rashes, smoother hair and skin and less problems with kidney and gallstones and bone spurs.
