Drinking distilled water is the only way to ensure you are drinking pure, clean water. Recent revelations about our public water supplies have made it clear: tap water is drinkable, but it's not safe to drink long term.
Why you shouldn't drink tap water all the time
Read your local water report and you'll notice your water is full of chemicals, minerals, and thousands of other organic and inorganic materials in the water lumped into a category called, "Total Dissolved Solids or TDS".
The TDS category can contain some 75,000+ different chemicals, depending on where you live. The Health Ranger Mike Adams tested tap water from across the USA and found that 75% of the water contained heavy metals, borderline safe levels of flouride and chlorine, and more.
Thousands of Scientists agree that tap water is safe to drink today, but could contribute to health issues, including cancer long term. Read More Here.
What is distilled water?
Distillation is a natural process that occurs in nature and is the process by which rain is created. Water from the ocean is heated, evaporated, and then condensed back into a liquid when it cools (i.e., turned into rain).
Distilled water follows the same process, utilizing boiling to evaporate tap water, in order to separate it from the chemicals and other substances dissolved into it. This process results in nearly pure water being captured with a pH of roughly 7.
This is slightly more acidic than your body which is 7.6, but we will cover that in greater detail here in a second.
Does Distilled Water Remove Minerals from your body?
It is true that distilled water removes toxins and minerals from your body. This is because distilled water does not contain any minerals.
Distilled water has a negative electric charge and is slightly acidic, so it will naturally attract minerals and heavy metals in your body, which will dissolve into the water.
This is beneficial because it can remove a lot of junk in the body, and is believed to be great for people suffering from calcified joints and arteries. Essentially, distilled water chelates oxalates in the body and removes them.
However, because distilled water is more acidic than the body, too much distilled water can cause your body to leach minerals to neutralize it. This can lead to deficiencies long term.
How to Use Distilled Water to Improve Your Health
Using distilled water can be a powerful tool for improving your health and keeping harmful substances out of your body. Here are two ways to utilize distilled water as part of your health routine.
#1: Drinking Water
Using distilled water for drinking is the best way to ensure you are drinking pure water. However, as previously mentioned, distilled water is stripped of all minerals.
Because of this you should always add minerals back to the water before consuming it. The best way to do this is by adding Pink Himalayan Sea Salt to your distilled water. This will increase the pH and add back the essential electrolytes and trace minerals.
Use a pinch of salt per 12 ounces and 1/4 to 1/2 a teaspoon per gallon of distilled water.
#2: As A Detoxification Agent
Distilled water is an incredible detoxification agent. As we mentioned previously, distilled water is a powerful chelating agent that draws heavy metals, chemicals, and inorganic pollutants from the body, sending them to the liver for processing and removal.
One of the simplest protocols is to drink distilled water on your fasting days. Or one or two days a week. You get plenty of minerals from your food, so a couple days here and there won't hurt you.
Again, we must remind you that distilled water can lead to mineral deficiencies, so using distilled water to help detoxify the body should only be done periodically and for short periods of time.
Drinking distilled water exclusively can be dangerous for your health. So use prudence and good judgement. You should also check with your physician too, to ensure this protocol is safe for you.
Conclusion: Drinking distilled water is the only way to ensure you are drinking pure water.
Carbon filters and alkaline water machines are great too, but they do not remove the 95% of pollutants that steam distillation can.
Again, make sure to add some raw pink salt to it if you are going to drink it regularly, and do not over consume it without adding minerals, as this can be dangerous.
