Dr. Elana interviews Rick Allen, owner of Pure Elements, who is an expert on water filtration. This topic can often feel overwhelming and confusing yet it is so important that we knew an episode dedicated to answering common questions was necessary! 

When Dr. Elana and Steph bought their homes, installing water filters was one of their FIRST priorities! They each had many questions, took hours upon hours to research the best quality, and now want to share this important info with you!

Expert Rick Allen helps guide us mamas so we aren’t misled with false claims from salesmen so you can cut to the chase and know exactly what you are purchasing. The goal is safe and clean water and that is what you deserve! This episode helps you learn the dos and don’ts of purchasing your next water filter. 

We love making these complex topics easy to digest and workable for us everyday moms.

*If you are new to this topic, please start by listening to Episode 230: How to Choose Clean Water for Your Family with Dr. Viviane Chen @plateful.health where we reviewed why unfiltered water is toxic to our family. Then come back to this episode to learn the steps you want to take in purchasing the best filter for your area!

Topics Discussed: 

  • What to AVOID when searching for a good quality filter - common misconceptions and myths salesmen often like to claim
  • Why Whole-house filters maybe even more important than drinking filters
  • What are some affordable options if renting or not ready to invest in a whole house filter system (hint shower filters and bath balls plus tips on how to use them effectively!)

Healthy Water visionary Rick Allen, President/CEO of Pure Elements Water has a stellar reputation for helping clients avoid potentially harmful chemicals in water for consumption, bathing and other human needs.  He has been a renowned leader in the water treatment industry for more than 35 years.

Persistent in working to reduce the reliance on plastic bottles and eliminates salt-based technologies (therefore helping the environment), Rick has become recognized as an expert in seeking levels of water quality that can provide increased longevity for our population and our planet.

Because of an epidemic level of pinhole leaks in copper piping in Southern California, Rick has involved leading engineers and designed systems that address at least two of the culprits, Chloramines and Calcium Carbonate “Pimples”.  He has achieved great success – No home in which a Pure Elements Water Chloramine System has been installed in the last five years has reported a further pinhole leak.

In addition, Rick is accepted as one of the leading national authorities on removing fluoride on a whole house basis, a challenging endeavor.  He is continually proving his success and making enhancements to his systems based on in-home test monitoring sites for real household results.

Dr. Phabby attended medical school at Pennsylvania State College of Medicine Hershey and completed her Obstetrics and Gynecology residency at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center in New York, New York.

Dr. Phabby's love for Holistic Medicine and Holistic Obstetrics and Gynecology began during her college years living in Harlem. She was a dedicated member of the Caduceus Society — a philanthropic society for physicians — and organized community outreach programs. Three times a year, they would visit children at the Mother Hale House, a Harlem center for children born to addicts, and it was there that she learned the healing power of love. As a member of the American Women's Association, she also provided free breast examinations to women.

Above all, Dr. Phabby's passion lies in the relational importance of Doctor/Patient care. She enjoys treating patients as whole beings and understanding that one's emotional suffering can manifest itself in physical pain. She admires that women are three-dimensional beings — mind, body, and spirit — and she recognizes the importance of treating them as such to achieve a well-balanced lifestyle.
