Natural Disaster Survival Tips - by Doctor Marie J. Miczak


Living in the path of Hurricane Sandy (and last year, Irene), has been a serious wake-up call.  While the main foci of my blog is cross training and fitness, this recent natural disaster has given me quite a few relative talking points.

Rely on Your Own Power

Strengthen Your Immune System

Be Prepared: Food,  Water Warm Clothing 



You don't need to purchase bottled water.  You can fill any bottle with filtered water and it will keep for several weeks.  Another option is to invest in a water BOB for your bathtub. You can fill it up and dispense as needed.  Just make sure to have 2 gallons per person per day for drinking and washing needs.  If you are not sure about your water supply's safety, consider boiling your water for 5 minutes or invest in a PurifiCup Portable Water Filtration System.
If you have to relocate to a shelter or a holding center, you can bring your Purificup with you. Having safe, pure water to drink during an emergency is a very important step towards staying healthy.  Likewise hypothermia is more apt to be a problem if you are dehydrated.

Warm Clothing

Right now I'm keeping an eye on the next storm.  When the barometer starts falling, that's when you know trouble is brewing in the atmosphere. My prayers and heart go out to all of my NY/NJ neighbors who are still struggling with power outages, fallen debris and all manner of deprivation.  Some have lost their homes, over 100 people have lost their lives due to this storm.  Be safe all and God bless.

PurifiCup® Now in India


PurifiCup is deeply committed to the idea that everyone should have access to clean drinking water, not only in North America but globally too.  Many companies and organizations do great work to bring clean, reliable water sources to people around the world who do not have access to clean drinking water.  PurifiCup applauds these efforts by others.  In an effort to do our part globally,
we are excited to announce that our product is being made available to the people of India.




Our partnership with the PRACSOL Health Group is an integral part in making PurifiCup filtration systems available to the people of India.  With their help, we are able to offer our state of the art, easy to use, compact and convenient water filtration systems to a large population of people, many of whom may not have the easiest access to clean drinking water.


India's economy is booming but most of its population has little to no access to clean water.  Dirt, bacteria and chemicals are just a few of the things that are lurking in India's unclean water. As people continue to drink this unclean water they get sick and pass illness to family members and friends.  Imagine how much safer the water would be after it filters through a PurifiCup water filtration system's Exclusive nano-silver Membrane filter!  99.99% of all the bacteria would be gone and that means less people getting sick and passing illness to one another.

We are excited to be able to offer this affordable technology to a whole population of people who are desperately in need of safer and cleaner drinking water.  To read more about how PurifiCup filtration systems work, please click HERE.

Hey Buddy, Wanna Buy Some Tap Water?



From CNBC NEWS Blog:

One of the most brilliant business plans ever: Selling New York City tap water.

I know! You wish you’d thought of it, am I right?!


What’s more, they want you to bring your own container! Hello, how low-overhead is that?


The company — the Molecule Project — actually takes New York City tap water, which New Yorkers will argue to death is already some of the best water around (save for the 100 year-old pipes that deliver it) and run it through a $20,000 pharmaceutical-grade filter. It’s an eight-step filtering process that is more thorough at removing contaminants than a Residential filter (Ruhf is insulted at the very comparison) and even better than home filtration systems to make water “soft.” My dad used to brag to anyone who dared enter our house about our “reverse osmosis” system from Culligan that got it down to 6 ppm — parts per million.

Ruhf wouldn’t specify how many ppm their filtered tap water is other than to say, “Our PPM is better than your dad’s. It’s by far less than 6 ppm.”

Their intentions are a little more noble than “Hey, buddy, wanna buy some tap water?”
“We have an increasing level of contamination nationally and internationally and it grew out of concern for what I was drinking,” Ruhf said, adding that they were inspired by the water stores in California and wanted to bring a variation on that idea to New York.

Best Picks Magazine - Dr. Marie J. Miczak


Planning Your Cabin Vacation:


Pure Water

One of the challenges every traveler faces is whether or not to drink the local water.  You'd be surprised at what passes for potability but suffice it to say, it's not going to taste like what you drink at home.  Many parks and resorts use well water, so the quality will vary from place to place.  We bypassed that by simply bringing a PurifiCup® portable water filtration system and had all the pure water we wanted for drinking and cooking.  It really worked fantastically and made both our water-bottles and meals taste so much better.


The image on the right showing Dr. Miczak using the World Patented PurifiCup to filter directly into the popular 20 oz insulated Klean Kanteen. 

Check out more images of PurifiCup working with camelbak, nalgene and many other sports bottles too.

PurifiCup Usage Recommendations

One tip we like to share, when using PurfiCup from the Natural water sources to avoid any chances of contamination. Please see attached 2 images with notations, when using the Cup in between your trips, it should be pack this way to avoid untreated water to contaminate your “Sealed drinking Cup” . (see pictures) and below:






















1. Design: Please see 2 Images, the smaller cup which collects the Filtered Clean water with a Seal cap to be carried. By design, the filter Housing does Not screw on the Drinking Cup; As you can see by-design the filter housing only screws into the Larger cup (the one you use to Scoop un-treated dirty water). Our engineers had already thought of such issue that’s why the design does not allow you to Screw the Filter housing to the Drinking Cup. PurifiCup is designed for user to obtain drinking water and Store water as you would as a Bottle.
2. Recommendations: For the users that may want to pack the PurifiCup back into single unit right after each use. Our suggestion is to Shake off the excess water, or rinse off the tip of the housing with clean water. Furthermore, if users are still worry about drops of water been in the cup, We recommend to Run the water thru again to be sure every drop is purified thru the Silver Membrane.
