I grew up in a Tauranga a non-fluoridated area and since moving to a fluoridated city I began to suffer bad eczema and other skin issues I had never suffered before. I also began to get regular, quite painful stomach cramps and my sinuses, which have always been an issue got worse.
My body is now so run down that I am struggling to maintain a healthy weight as I am not absorbing nutrients the way I should be and now have to be on a gluten and dairy free diet which is fine but just makes life that little bit more difficult and expensive.
I find myself being constantly fatigued and I didn’t know what was causing this but I went and saw a doctor who is interested in slightly alternative medicine and he told me about fluoride so since then I have done some more research about this.
I just can’t believe that in pure clean green New Zealand where we have beautiful natural water resources, we think it’s a good idea to be fluoridating our tap water, it is an unnecessary expense and a risk to many peoples health and well being.
