If you aren’t already aware of the benefits of Distilled Water then you probably decided to take a look at this because you’re curious about the claim in the title that Distilled Water is the Fountain of Youth.
You may be thinking, “Come on, it’s just water, I’ve been drinking water my whole life, yes, I know, without water death occurs in a short time, but isn’t it actually harmful to drink water that’s been distilled? Can’t you die from drinking distilled water?
Well, unfortunately these beliefs about distilled water have been drummed into us since we were young.
And, as is the case with so many of the beliefs we’ve been programed with, these beliefs are the exact opposite of reality.
“Imagine one common possible cause for nearly all diseases! Can it be that arthritis, kidney stones, gall stones, arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), enlarged hearts, emphysema, obesity, constipation, cataracts, glaucoma, diabetes, all stem from one common cause? Unbelievable! But possibly very true!
We all use it every day-from the baby’s first cry to the old man’s last breath. Water! The one element you need the most and suspect the least. If this shocks you, do not be surprised, as millions of Americans are still unaware of this “aging process,” and indulge in it freely. Multitudes suffer from all the above diseases, and unknowingly contribute to this cause daily. Somehow the shots, pills, vitamin capsules and balanced diets add only brief spurts to well-being.
The arthritis can get a little worse, the arteries a little harder, the gall stones and kidney stones a little larger, the eyes a little dimmer, the hearing more complex, sugar starts to appear in the urine, digestion slows down, constipation calls for stronger laxatives-and waist lines get a little larger. It’s a never-ending cycle of feeling just a little worse than the day before.
Let me cheer you up. There is good news in store for you. Happy years are now ahead of you, far into your nineties or even more. Your stiff joints may begin to loosen, arteries become more elastic, blood pressures can become more normal, heart action firmer and more powerful. Your lungs can expand with fresh air, kidney and gall stones can gradually dissolve, never to appear again. That lost appetite can also reappear, and those aggravating stomach pains somehow can vanish.
Following, are a few authenticated case histories, just to prove what has already taken place in the lives of two famous individuals.
One was an individual named Dr. Brown Landone who lived to the splendid age of 98. His patient, a Captain Diamond, lived vigorously to the fantastic age of 120 years.
Dr. Landone had a heart condition at the age of 17. Today it would have meant a heart transplant or other dangerous surgery. His doctor allotted him three months to live at the most. His heart chambers and valves were coated with mineral deposits much like his mother’s teakettle. Dr. Landone was determined to live. After devising a special treatment, he returned for his second heart examination two years later. His doctor pronounced his heart perfect. All aglow with life, young Landone enrolled in a medical college and received the degree of Doctor of Neurology. He practiced this profession for 50 years, then turned his talents to writing. His average working day was from 18 to 20 hours. At the age of 98, he could have been mistaken for a man of 50!
During Dr. Landone’s years in practice, he met Captain Diamond, who was bed-ridden with arthritis and hardening of his arteries at the age of 70.
Dr. Landone suggested his treatment. Five years later he was teaching classes in physical culture. At the age of 103 he walked from Sacramento to New York. At the age of 110 he danced all night with a 16-year-old. He died at the fantastic age of 120!
The Secret of Longevity
There are at least nine different kinds of water. Some kinds can harden your arteries, form gall stones and kidney stones, bring on early senility, and all the diseases mentioned earlier. Other kinds of water work in reverse. What one type of water carries into the system, the other carries out.
Let’s classify these nine kinds of water. They are hard water, raw water, boiled water, soft water, rain water, snow water, filtered water, de-ionized water and distilled water. All are kinds of water, but remember this: only one of these nine kinds of water is good for you.
Hard water is water containing excessive lime salts, that is, carbonates and sulfates of calcium and magnesium. Sodium, iron, copper, silicon, nitrates, chlorides, viruses, bacteria, chemicals, and many other harmful inorganic minerals and chemicals may also be present. Most all the water we drink comes from public water systems or private wells. These are hard waters. Any water that has run through, or over, ground is hard water to some degree. The longer it filters through the soil, the harder it gets and the more harmful it may become for you.
Some cities take water from rivers and lakes or mountain reservoirs. They call it soft water. But soft water from such sources is soft only in comparison to water which is harder.
Each year the earth’s rivers carry to the sea five billion tons of dissolved minerals and other unnumbered millions of tons of carbon compounds and factory pollutants. “And ocean life is on the decrease,” according to Jacques Cousteau.
There are also the hard waters which are called “mineral waters.” That is, waters from certain mineral springs, well known for their medicinal effects. Practically all kinds of “bottled” water is hard water.
The reason mineral waters have this so-called medicinal effect is because the body tries to throw off the excess minerals which invade it as intruding foreign deposits. Actually, a form of dysentery exists, as the organism tries to eliminate and expel this unusual condition. To subsist on this type of water could be detrimental.
Raw water is water which has not been treated in any way. It may be hard or soft-as hard as lime water, or as soft as rain water. Raw water contains millions of viruses and bacteria, and is densely inhabited in every drop. Chemicals dumped into our rivers may cause cancer, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
True, properly chlorinated water kills most germs and viruses, but it can also kill the cells in our bodies. The only safe rule to follow individually is to distill drinking water, which will eliminate both chlorine and pathogenic organisms.
Boiled water is advised by some health authorities. Boiling removes none of the inorganic minerals, although it does kill the bacteria in raw water if boiled at least 20 minutes. But the dead bodies of these germs are carried into the system when the boiled water is used. Such dead materials furnish a fertilized soil for rapid and lusty propagation of germs already in the body.
By drinking boiled water one may avoid live disease germs, but still takes on bacterial soil for the growth of other bacteria.
While raw water is an aquarium filled with deadly microorganisms, boiled water is a graveyard of dead germs.
Rain water, which has been distilled by the heat of the sun, should contain no mineral matter and no germs. But when it falls from the clouds as rain, it falls through air filled with bacteria, dust, smoke, chemicals, mud and minerals. By the time it reaches the earth as rain water it is so saturated with decaying matter, dirt and chemicals that its color becomes a yellowish-white.
If rain water is allowed to stand it becomes filthy because of the rotting animal matter in it.
Snow water is melted snow. It, too, picks up minerals, chemicals and radioactive fallout such as Strontium 90. Snow is frozen rain. Freezing does not destroy bacteria. Snow looks white and clean but it contains as many germs, minerals and pollutants as rain water. Remember the dirt left from melting snow in the spring? How the dirt of what has melted forms on top of the snow which is not yet melted! Try melting the cleanest snow, then note the filth in the water. Each snowflake contains some form of air pollution.
Filtered water is water which has passed through a very fine strainer, activated carbon or some other mechanical barrier. The use of filtered water is still rather popular. Some people think that water which has passed through a filter is purified. They believe that the filter keeps the waste substances and disease germs of the water in the filter. While it is true that chlorine, some suspended substances and many synthetic chemicals are removed in the filter by filtering, there is no filter made which can prevent bacteria or viruses from passing through its fine meshes. Each pore of the finest filter is large enough for millions of germs to pass through, even those containing silver!
Moreover, decaying matter collects on the bottom of every filter. This forms an excellent breeding ground for bacteria. After a filter has been used for a few days, the filtered water often contains more disease germs than the water which is put into the filter. Bacteria are multiplied by the millions by the collected wastes at the base of some filters, and washed through with filtered water, according to Dr. Brown Landone.
You may have heard about water filtered by reverse osmosis. In this process, water is purified by forcing a portion of the raw water through a semi-permeable membrane. Reverse osmosis removes a high percentage of the dissolved solids as well as other contaminants, and when new the result often approaches the purity of distilled water. The degree of purity in any case varies widely, depending on the types and conditions of the equipment used, much as with filter equipment, and the effectiveness lessens with use. Sometimes drastically!”(1)
“Regardless of the process or the technology behind it, the main purpose of these devices is to produce the cleanest, purest, healthiest water possible. The most commonly used method for cleaning
up tap water is the carbon block filter which removes the water’s bad taste, smell, chlorine, nitrates and many chemicals. It is, indeed, the most economical form of water treatment available; however, it comes with several serious drawbacks:
It does not remove all chemicals present.
Chemicals can build up in the filter to dangerous concentrations which end up in your body if you don’t change the filter regularly.
A carbon filter is a breeding ground for bacteria and germs.
The filter can develop channeling from water taking the path of least resistance. Therefore, unfiltered water can pass straight through the filter, unobstructed.”(2)
“Water processed by the de-ionized method effectively removes minerals, and compares to distilled water in this respect. However, it does become a breeding ground for bacteria, pyrogenic matter and viruses. The fault in this system lies in the resin beds which can become notorious breeding grounds. Therefore it is not wise to have this possibility exist in your drinking water.
Furthermore, deionization does not remove synthetic chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, insecticides or industrial solvents.
Distilled Water! The Miracle Of All Water
Distilled water is water which has been turned into vapor, so that virtually all its impurities are left behind. Then, by condensing, it is turned back to “pure” water. Distillation is the single most effective method of water purification. It is God’s water for the human race.
In a manner of speaking, distillation is nature’s way. The weather of the world is created in the tropics, where half the heat reaching the earth falls on land and water masses. Here heat energy is stored within water vapor through the process of evaporation, nature’s distillery. When the jet streams return ocean water to inland areas, they do so without sea salts and minerals, all of which have been left behind.
Distilling water turns it into vapor, and then through condensation, back again into pure water. Rising vapor cannot carry minerals and other dissolved solids. It will not carry disease germs, dead or alive. The secret is that the vapor rises between all the suspended particles and chemicals in the air. When this condensation occurs as falling rain, it picks up airborne pollutants! Not so in a vented distiller where most of them are eliminated.
If pure distilled water is boiled in a teakettle, no calcium or minerals of any kind will collect to coat the inside of the kettle, even though you used the same kettle for ten years.
Distilled water then is water of the purest kind. It is odorless, colorless and tasteless.
As a solvent, it dissolves rocks and soil. It figures in the transport of nutrients into plant life.
In the human body, water fills similar functions. It regulates the temperature of the body by helping take off extra heat resulting from an intake of some 3,000 calories of food each day. Water keeps the body from burning up. It carries waste products from the body.
Distilled water acts as a solvent in the body. It dissolves food substances so they can be assimilated and taken into every cell. It dissolves inorganic mineral substances lodged in tissues of the body so that such substances can be eliminated in the process of purifying the body.
Distilled water is the greatest solvent on earth-the only one that can be taken into the body without damage to the tissues.
By its continued use, it is possible to dissolve inorganic minerals, acid crystals, and all the other waste products of the body without injuring tissues.
Inorganic Mineral Deposits Must Be Removed
For purification, distilled water is the solvent of choice. After mineral deposits are dissolved, gentle muscular exercise can force the dissolved poisons and wastes from the tissues into the blood so that blood can carry wastes to the excretory organs. Then, these organs can squeeze and pour the wastes out of the body.
Hard water then is your greatest enemy. It will destroy every fond hope you have by striking you down when you should be enjoying the fruits of your labors. Crippled joints, repeated surgeries, enlarged hearts, hardened arteries, gall stones, kidney stones, hearing problems, forgetful minds, all draw your activities from the great out-of-doors into creaking rocking chairs, and finally into bed-ridden old people’s homes.
Let’s trace the course of hard water. It begins in the clouds. As it falls it collects minerals and poisonous chemicals. It is good water, except for what it picks up as it falls. When it reaches the ground it is designed to do one thing, to pick up minerals. These inorganic minerals are wonderful, but only for plants. As the water picks up minerals, it distributes them evenly to plant life. Plants would never grow if these minerals were not supplied to their roots. Water then acts as a carrier of some minerals, namely anion nutrients. But chemicals have now polluted our pure air. To clean the air, and make it fit to breathe, nature designed water to absorb these poisons.
Most people are unaware that these collected minerals from the air and in the ground are all inorganic minerals, which cannot be assimilated by the body unless they are chelated into organic molecules. The only minerals the body can utilize are the organic minerals. All the others are foreign minerals and must be disposed of or eliminated. Herein lies the problem we have never suspected as the possible cause of nearly all our aging diseases.
Only Plants Need Inorganic Minerals
Water, as a carrier of minerals, is fine for the plant. The plant in turn converts the inorganic minerals to organic minerals. Then our bodies can assimilate them. We have worked this process in reverse. We consume hard water saturated with calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, silicon, not realizing the body is unable to assimilate these nutrients efficiently. So nature tucks them in the joints as arthritis, in the intestinal walls as constipation, and along the arteries, causing them to harden. The kidneys and liver roll up the mineral deposits into little stones until they get too large for the ducts. Sometimes the “filters” of the kidneys become so mineral clogged that kidney transplants become necessary.
Many Disease Conditions Can Result From Mineral Deposits
Calcium deposits in the heart chambers and valves become so cemented into place with mineral deposits that heart surgery becomes necessary. Calcium deposits in the inner ear cause deafness. Skilled surgeons can now remove these deposits and in many cases restore hearing again. Should these deposits occur on the nerve, then total deafness can result.
Since water is a carrier of inorganic minerals, harmful to the body functions, it is wise to remove virtually all trace minerals, chemicals and foreign particles through the process of distillation. Then, and only then, is water odorless, colorless, and tasteless and fit for consumption.
Clearing Inorganic Mineral Deposits Brings Renewed Health
Through the process of distilling, the water is separated from virtually everything it carries, and is now pure water. As it enters the body, it again picks up mineral deposits accumulated in the joints, artery walls, or wherever such deposits occur, and begins to carry them out. Gall stones and kidney stones get smaller and smaller until they can safely pass through their ducts. Little by little arthritic pains become less as joints become more supple and movable. Arteries gradually become more elastic as blood pressures tend to become more normal. Gradually the outlook on life becomes a little more youthful-ambitions begin to return, while the squeaking rocking chair will give way to an active lifestyle.
The startling fact to remember is that water attracts chiefly inorganic minerals. Organic minerals stay in the tissues, where they belong. X-rays of the arteries will never show unless there are calcium deposits along the artery walls.
So hard water carries inert minerals into the body, and distilled water carries them out-it’s just as simple as that.
There is then only one way you can purify your body and help to eliminate your chronic aging diseases and that is through the miracle of distilled water. A sludge-filled motor cannot operate smoothly unless the sludge is removed. Neither can a body be supple and ageless unless the joints, arteries, cells and nerve tracts are free of mineral deposits!
The Appalling Truth
The average person drinks about a gallon of water per day. Adding up the cups of coffee, tea, soft drinks, food and water, this gallon isn’t too much. Many men drink much more. At a gallon a day, the average person drinks up to 450 glasses of solids during a life span. These same solids are found in your humidifier, and in grandmother’s teakettle. Think of it-450 glasses of mineral solids in your system during a lifetime.
What does the body do with these foreign materials? Nature does the very same thing you are now thinking. It tries to eliminate them. Do you recall the water spots on your windows from your water sprinkler? Ever try to remove them? It takes lots of vinegar and lots of rubbing to dissolve the deposits.
This same reaction takes place in our bodies. It begins by putting a thin film along our intestinal walls. As soon as one film is laid, it attracts another film much easier, until it begins to build up and one of the first results is constipation, a plague to millions of people. Other deposits occur where blood flows the slowest, such as in the joints as arthritis and gout, along the arteries as hardening, in the veins as varicose, in the lungs as emphysema. It often coats the crystalline lens of the eyes with a fine film possibly resulting in cataracts. Glaucoma, the dreaded eye disease, can be another result of hard water. The tiny vessels film up with mineral deposits, which result in a build-up of pressure in the eye. There has never been a known cause for glaucoma. It might be the mineral deposits.
Heart Attacks Unknown
Bantu African tribesmen were known to have the cleanest arteries, as well as the most elastic ones. They dug no wells, but catch rain water. Although this water is contaminated with bacteria, it is still almost free of minerals. The air and water pollution, such as we have in major cities, have not yet affected them as much. This is a tremendous testimony for mineral-free water.
Even the Europeans have far less cholesterol in their arteries than we do. They of course drink more wine than we do. Wine is comprised of distilled water. All water that passes through the roots of plants, converts the inorganic minerals to organic minerals, and distills the water at the same time. When juices contain minerals, they contain them as complexed organic molecules.
The truth of drinking distilled water is not new. It is just that the public has never caught on. Today, many progressive doctors prescribe distilled water for their patients. All the kidney machines operate on the purest distilled water.
Not only should we be concerned about the minerals in our water, but we must also add the deadly nitrates and anthracenes, as well as pesticides and herbicides, along with thousands of other chemicals, which are seeping into our lakes, rivers and wells and are contained in municipal water sources. The sewer wastes, and factory pollution, detergents included, can travel upstream underground at the rate of a half mile every six months.
Officials inspect and test city water periodically, but water is never the same at all times, and neither are wells in the same locations. Water can vary every day. Sometimes chemicals in water can become excessive; at other times negligible; but at all times the minerals will be there. What is necessary for health is a mineral free and chemical-free water. This is the only kind of water our bodies demand. Only through the process of distillation can we achieve this purity.”(1)
Distilled Water Helps Burn Fat
“Distilled water not only helps to metabolize the fat stored in the body, it also will help to suppress your appetite better than any diet pill on the market today. Pure, clean water not only aids in weight loss, it also helps prevent your body from gaining weight.
When your body is dehydrated and not receiving adequate quantities of water for normal bodily functions, the body will start storing water as a protective measure, and it does so in the fat cells. When the body is starved of water, instead of metabolizing fat with the help of water, it will
start storing water and fat.
Our kidneys cannot function adequately without the proper quantity of water; consequently a portion of their load is transferred to the liver. Metabolizing stored fat and converting it into energy is the primary function of our liver. As a result, the overloaded liver cannot function properly or at full capacity by metabolizing fat; and the fat that is not used as energy is stored in the body.
If you are not supplying your body with an adequate quantity of water, it will perceive this as a threat to the body’s survival. It begins storing water in the fat cells, causing the ankles, feet, legs and hands to swell and puff up. You can actually press against the swollen area with a finger and leave a
temporary indentation. In this process the body will begin storing as much water as it is supplied, and unfortunately the water the body is storing is not being used.
Therefore the organs may start pulling water from less critical bodily functions, which can result in many serious conditions such as:
1. Heat stroke
2. extremely dry mouth and nose
3. extremely dry skin, no elasticity
4. extreme thirst & no sweat no
5. urination or dark yellow urine
6. accelerated heartbeat sunken eyes
7. accelerated breathing
8. no tears when crying fever & possible delirium or even
The only way to rid the body of these symptoms is to drink plenty of water. The body will stop storing water and begin supplying it with much needed hydration. Then the stored water will be released. If you feel you are drinking an adequate amount of water and yet seem to be retaining it due
to swollen feet, ankles, legs, arms or hands, this may be the result of ingesting too much salt.
Your system will attempt to dilute excess quantities of salt which results in swollen tissues. To solve this issue, simply drink plenty of water, preferably distilled or reverse osmosis.
The larger a person is, the more water they require for their metabolic processes. So an overweight person obviously would need to drink larger quantities of water for their metabolism than would a thinner person. If you seem to have frequent muscle cramps, it is a sign that your muscles are
not receiving enough water to stay elastic and maintain proper muscle tone.
Ridding the Body of Waste
Another major function of water is to help rid the body of waste material. As the body starts shedding fat cells after receiving an adequate supply of water, these metabolized fat cells along with residual waste material must be eliminated. It is therefore important that the body received plenty of
water in order to help flush the waste material from the body.
Move Waste Material through the Colon
To move waste material through the colon, it needs a continual supply of water for this process, and if that does not happen you will become constipated. If you are not drinking enough water, the colon is one of the first organs to be deprived of its share. When this happens, you simply
need to drink more water, not take medication.
How Much Water Should Be Consumed Daily
The average person should be drinking 3 to 4 quarts (a bit less than 3 to 4 Liters) of water daily to adequately supply all of the body’s needs and to flush waste and toxins from the colon, kidneys and bladder. The best way to accomplish this is to have a bottle of water close by throughout the day and drink a little bit often. This will assure that you will not only stay hydrated, the water in your stomach will help suppress hunger.
When the Body Is Properly Hydrated
When the body is properly hydrated, every organ will function properly. You will also prevent water retention and any stored water will be released. The liver will properly metabolize stored fat and this fat will be used as fuel and burned up. Then you will again have normal thirst and normal hunger.”(2)
Doctors and Experts With the Courage to Tell the Truth About Distilled Water
“You should DRINK AT LEAST ONE GALLON of purified water a day. Most of us drink only at mealtime and when we’re noticeably thirsty. Wrong. You can develop a habit of NOT drinking water and walk around being 66 or 67 percent water, instead of 74 percent, which is what your body needs.
When you don’t have the water in you, you won’t ever have the energy you need. The very first thing I do to get people’s energy up is to increase the amount of water in their diet. Immediately, their energy goes up.
When someone has dementia, the first thing I do is give them lots of cold water all day, every day. About three weeks later, I start to see their dementia dissipate because they have rehydrated their brains. Unfortunately, your brain actually shrinks as you dehydrate. By DRINKING LOTS OF PURE WATER, you get better neuron activity and better cellular chemistry, and you’re able to detoxify the cells with water.
Water has to be pure, free from fluoride, chlorine, and chemicals, which is why I recommend distilled water. To achieve optimum health, I recommend that you DRINK A HALF GALLON TO ONE FULL GALLON PER DAY.”

C.W. DELACY EVANS:
“USED AS A DRINK, DISTILLED WATER IS ABSORBED DIRECTLY into the blood, the solvent properties of which it increases to such an extent that it will KEEP IN SOLUTION salts already existing in the blood, prevent their undue deposit in various organs and structures, favor their elimination by the various excreta, and tend to remove these earthy compounds which have already accumulated in the body.
There is no doubt as to THE HIGH VALUE OF DISTILLED WATER USED FREELY as a retarder of the ossifying conditions which appear to constitute the condition of old age.”
— Dr. C.W. DeLacy Evans, M.D., from How To Prolong Life
” …it is important that we GIVE TO THE BODY A SUFFICIENT QUANTITY OF PURE WATER in order that the blood may be kept in its normal fluid condition, and the disease-producing effete matter eliminated.
THERE IS NO CLEANSING AGENT AS IMPORTANT AS WATER, not only for the exterior of the body, but for the interior from the crown of the head to the soles of the feet. It is a simple matter to drink a glass of water, yet the results of the act are marvelous. A very small portion of it enters the intestines, but by far the larger quantity is absorbed into the blood and enters immediately into the circulation of this life-giving fluid.”
“ONE IS ALMOST DRIVEN, if he be particular as to his water supply, TO THE USE OF DISTILLED WATER.”
— Bernarr Macfadden, from Macfadden’s Encyclopedia of Physical Culture, 1911.
ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL:
“I thought if I DRANK PLENTY OF IT, I might get rid of some of the salts that were covering my sciatic nerves. I tried drinking it, and it worked like a charm. Within a short time my sciatica left me and I have been free of rheumatism from that day to this. I have KEPT UP MY DRINKING OF DISTILLED WATER and I attribute my almost perfect health largely to it.”
— Dr. Alexander Graham Bell, Inventor of the Telephone
“Distilled Water is a pure water. A lot of people have been mislead into believing that it robs minerals out of the body. Well, in my life, I’ve been DRINKING DISTILLED WATER FOR 35 YEARS. University of California Los Angeles, several years ago, told me I had the bone density of a 22 year old athlete. So, if in fact Distilled Water robbed the body of minerals, I would probably be crippled by now”
—Dr. Brian Clement, from the video, “Why Choose Distilled Water?”
ALLEN E. BANIK:
“What we as scientists and the public have never realized is that minerals collected in the body from water are all inorganic minerals, which cannot be assimilated (digested) by the body. The only minerals that the body can utilize are the organic minerals (from fruits and vegetables). All other types of minerals are foreign substances to the body and must be disposed of or eliminated.”
“Distilled water then is water of the purest kind. It is odorless, colorless and tasteless. The divine purpose of water is to act as a solvent. In nature, water in evaporation is so fine that your eye cannot perceive it as it is drawn up into the clouds. Then it falls as rain, keeping the earth from being parched and burned. As a solvent, it dissolves rocks and soil. It figures in the transport of nutrients into plant life.
In the human body, water fills similar functions. …Distilled water acts as a solvent in the body. It dissolves food substances so they can be assimilated and taken into every cell. It dissolves inorganic mineral substances lodged in tissues of the body so that such substances can be eliminated in the process of purifying the body. Distilled water is the greatest solvent on earth —the only one that can be taken into the body without damage to the tissues.”
“THE AVERAGE PERSON DRINKS ABOUT A GALLON OF WATER PER DAY. …THIS GALLON ISN’T TOO MUCH. MANY MEN DRINK MUCH MORE.”
“Today, many progressive doctors prescribe distilled water to their patients.”
— Allen E. Banik, M.D. excerpts from, “The Choice is Clear”
“I personally have been DRINKING A GALLON OF DISTILLED WATER PER DAY for over 40 years. I fast all food for a minimum of 21 days annually. Over the years I have done three 40-day fasts on just distilled water. I fasted a year ago for 60 days: 40 days, then a break of 6 days eating only vegetables, and then continued another 20 days (for a total of 60 out of 66 days). No “early death” here, just perfect health and longevity.
I guess a man with an experience is not at the mercy of a man with an argument. Change your water and change your health. Drink distilled water purified nature’s way: evaporation and condensation.”
— Douglas Hoover, author of “Distilled Water and Health,” Founder of Aquamedia Research Group, DistilledWaterAuthourity.com and DistillationStation.com
“Only distilled water, the emptiest water is allowed. Distilled water is so empty, it is like a vacuum, it is the universal solvent especially for unwanted mineral deposits. Just by DRINKING DISTILLED WATER ON A REGULAR BASIS you dissolve stones, and prevent new ones from forming…”
— Dr. Richard Schulze, N.D., M.H. from his “Kidney Stone Dissolving Routine”
“It is Mr. Bennet’s theory that old age and ill health are caused by the collection in the arteries and about the joints of lime and clay sediments contained in drinking water. This mineral coating, he believes, interrupts the proper circulation of the blood, prevents the necessary irrigation of the skin, produces stiffness of the joints and dulls the action of the brain.”
“Distilled water and olive oil, one used internally, the other used externally, are my elixirs of youth,” declared Mr. Bennett. “They will counteract the decaying conditions in the body. You must DRINK LARGE QUANTITIES OF DISTILLED WATER, rub yourself with pure California olive oil, and take a moderate exercise. That is the secret which my friends have so long wished to learn.”
“Why, ten years ago I could not read without glasses. Today, I can read the smallest print without artificial aid of any kind.”

” …WATER, FREE FROM IMPURITIES. Any amount of it may be taken into the system without fear of detrimental results. Physicians know it is the best solvent of inorganic concretions in the body, …there is NOTHING MORE WHOLESOME THAN PURE DISTILLED WATER, tightly corked in clean bottles, protected from contaminations of even impure air. PURE WATER, WELL CORKED, NEVER GETS STALE.”

BODY BUILDING LEGEND KELLIE EVERTS:
“I OFTEN USE my water distiller – absolutely pure DISTILLED WATER IS THE BEST THING YOU CAN DRINK. I also employ juicing – all the roots as well – and use the blender. In the blender I cut up oranges and grapefruits into small pieces, add water, and blend until liquid. The white parts of these fruits contain valuable bioflavonoids.”

CLIFFORD C. DENNISON:
“…there are hundreds of case histories of people who have enjoyed success in alleviating or overcoming these health problems (arthritis, heart disease, high blood pressure, hardening of the arteries, kidney stones, gall stones, cataracts and emphysema) when they BEGAN DRINKING DISTILLED WATER EXCLUSIVELY.”
—Dr. Clifford C. Dennison, Ed. D., an Associate Professor at Lee College in Cleveland, Tennessee, and a lifelong water researcher
“I cannot emphasize enough THE IMPORTANCE OF DRINKING DISTILLED WATER FOR CLEANSING the blood stream, for reducing arthritic pain and lowering blood pressure. It has also been known to reduce cholesterol and triglycerides. In fact, the only effect on the body is health.
There are rules of thumb on how much water to drink. The rule of thumb on a normal day is one half your body weight in ounces per day. If you are sweating and exerting yourself you should drink more, not less. We have a tendency to grab pop, coffee, Kool-Aid and juices, but we need to GET BACK TO THE HABIT OF GRABBING DISTILLED WATER.
To give you an example of what this means, if you are a man and you weigh 200 pounds, you should be drinking a minimum of 100 ounces of distilled water throughout the day. There is an interesting side note for people that like to study. Job, which is the oldest book of the bible, I believe it is in the 36th chapter, said God took up the water, distilled it, and poured it out abundantly on man. The logical argument is who knows better what we need than the creator, and he gave us distilled water.”
— Dr. Chester Handley, D.C., M.D., from his article, “The Importance of Distilled Water in Aging”
“Often times the blood becomes tainted and needs to be purified. There is only one way of washing the blood and that is by means of dead water, undiluted water, distilled water which contains no life organism, chemicals or similar substances. It has to be dead water, i.e. water condensed from steam.
Distilled water, by virtue of its weight: effects a one pound pressure upon the minerals and acids which clog the bloodstream; it presses them right through the system. Even in a short time it eliminates appreciable quantities of impurities from the blood.
There is no hard and fast rule as to how to take The Cure; it may be taken quickly or slowly, hot or cold. It is left entirely to the individual to decide according to temperament and physical condition.
THE MAIN THING IS TO OBTAIN THE NECESSARY PRESSURE and to ensure that two cups are always taken at one time – A TOTAL OF SEVEN PINTS PER DAY. This is quite easy of accomplishment if the quantity is systematically regulated as follows:
- On awakening take two cups.
- Another two cups shortly before breakfast.
- Two cups in the middle of the morning.
- Two more 20 to 30 minutes before the mid-day meal.
- Two cups in the middle of the afternoon.
- Another two cups 20 to 30 minutes before dinner.
- The last two cups in the evening shortly before retiring.
If desired, TWO MORE PORTIONS MAY BE TAKEN one, two hours after lunch, and the other two hours after dinner. As regards to eating and drinking, it is a matter of individual choice. NOTHING IS FORBIDDEN AND THERE IS NO NEED FOR FASTING NOR PRIVATION. One may eat and drink according to individual needs. One eats only moderately after having taken two cups of distilled water. THE PRINCIPLE OF ‘THE CURE’ MUST BE MAINTAINED, I.E., SEVEN TIMES PER DAY, TWO CUPS OF WATER AT ONE TIME making sure to take two cups shortly before each meal.”

ANN AND PAUL MALKMUS:
“We CONSUME A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF DISTILLED WATER. Not only just from the glass to drink, but believe it or not, ALL OF OUR FRUITS AND VEGETABLES HAVE DISTILLED WATER in them, so when we consume those, WE CONSUME DISTILLED WATER IN THEM.”
“The plant juices really are the purest water, because the roots act as a filtering system, and so it filters out the impurity, it converts the minerals that are in the ground that are difficult for the body to assimilate, into a mineral that the body can assimilate easily.”

NORMAN W. WALKER:
“People who say that Distilled Water leaches minerals out of the body are, therefore, correct only in this respect. This is only 50% of the truth. It is virtually impossible for Distilled Water to separate minerals, which have become an integral part of the cells and tissues of the body. Distilled water collects ONLY the minerals which remain in the body, minerals discarded from natural water AND from the cells, the minerals which the natural water originally collected from its contact with the earth and the rocks. Such minerals, having been rejected by the cells of the body are of no constructive value. On the contrary, they are debris which distilled water is capable of picking up and eliminating from the system.”
“How much juice can be taken safely? Just as much as one can drink comfortably without forcing oneself. As a general rule, one pint daily is the least that will show any perceptible results, and PREFERABLY FROM TWO TO EIGHT PINTS OR MORE. We must bear in mind that the more juice we drink the quicker the results.”
—Dr. Norman W. Walker, from his books, “Water Can Undermine Your Health” and “Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices” respectively.
“The DISTILLED WATER helps clean the inorganic minerals from our body that have accumulated over the years. It helps transport the toxins out of our body. And we need an ABUNDANCE of this water, initially, as we are trying to help the body FLUSH these toxins out so that we do not have to deal with a lot of symptoms of detoxification from cleansing.”

CHERYL R. SCOTT:
“I just completed A 40 DAY DISTILLED WATERS FAST TO HEAL MYSELF from significant degeneration of my knees secondary to osteoarthritis. My fast was fairly simple and straight forward. My goal was to fast on 1 GALLON TO 1.5 GALLONS OF DISTILLED WATER EACH DAY. I would ‘pound a pound’ (drink a pint quickly) at least every 1-2 hours. I was able to obtain a 6 week medical leave of absence and on day one of my medical leave I began fasting on 1.5 GALLONS OF DISTILLED WATER. I am ecstatic with the results. I lost 35 pounds which was very important for my knees. My objective was to remove inorganic mineral deposits throughout my body (like years and years of arterial plaque build-up), however I PRIMARILY DESIRED TO REMOVE ALL THE MINERAL DEPOSITS IN ALL OF MY JOINTS which are greatly impacted by osteoarthritis. 7 weeks ago, I had to order a seated walker to use at work in my role as a nurse consultant. Now that I have finished my 40 day Distilled Waters fast, I can walk and stand for hours with minimal pain.
I had my CHEM PANELS AND LIPID PANELS DRAWN at 21 days and 40 days into my Distilled Water fast and MY MAGNESIUM/PHOSPHOROUS AND CALCIUM LEVELS WERE ALWAYS PERFECTLY NORMAL. This proved to me that DRINKING DISTILLED WATER DOES NOT LEACH ORGANIC MINERALS from our tissues. And MY LDL AND TRIGLYCERIDE LEVELS ARE THE BEST THEY HAVE EVER BEEN.
I return to work in 3 days feeling much better and able to do my work without the need for a walker. This 50 something RN is very grateful for Distilled Waters Therapies! Namaste!”

“By using succulent fruits and vegetables in scurvy, or acidosis, MUCH DISTILLED WATER IS FURNISHED THE BODY WITH WHICH TO FLUSH OUT THE ACCUMULATED PUTRESCENCE. Fruit and vegetables contain over ninety per cent water.”
— Dr. J. H. Tilden, M.D., from IMPAIRED HEALTH, ITS CAUSE AND CURE: A Repudiation of the Conventional Treatment of Disease, 1921
“WATER HARDNESS (INORGANIC MINERALS IN SOLUTION) is the underlying cause of many, if not all, of the diseases resulting from poisons in the intestinal tract. These (hard minerals) pass from the intestinal walls and get into the lymphatic system, which delivers all of its products to the blood, which in turn, distributes to all parts of the body. THIS IS THE CAUSE OF MUCH HUMAN DISEASE.”
“Water Hardness is inorganic minerals in solution(in water). When these minerals enter the intestines in drinking water, there is an immediate reaction between them and the fats, oils and fatty acids present, causing precipitation of inorganic calcium, magnesium, iron and so on – to form new, insoluble compounds.”
—Dr. Charles Mayo of the Mayo Clinic
JOHN HARVEY KELLOGG:
” …from Dr. J. H. Kellogg, the physician-in-Chief of the Battle Creek Sanitarium, …in Good Health Magazine for June, 1899, SAYS OF DISTILLED WATER:
“It is FREE FROM GERMS, FREE FROM INJURIOUS SALTS, FROM LIME and other substances with which they are found in combination, if not always of the same uniform quality.”
—from “Distilled Water and Longevity” by Elmer Ellsworth Carey, Chicago, in Suggestion magazine, Volume 10, January 1, 1903
“Still another use for water is TO DISSOLVE AND WASH OUT of our bodies, through the sweat of the skin, and in other ways, THE WASTE AND WORN-OUT PARTICLES which are no longer of any use.”
“Most waters have more or less substances dissolved in them. Water which has much lime in it is called hard water. Such water is not so good to drink, or for use in cooking, as soft water. THAT WATER IS BEST WHICH HOLDS NO SUBSTANCES IN SOLUTION.”
“THE PUREST WATER IS THE BEST. Impure water causes sickness.”
— Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, from, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg’s Child’s Guide to Health and Hygiene
“ANYONE DRINKING DISTILLED WATER EXCLUSIVELY WOULD EVENTUALLY RETURN TO NORMAL WEIGHT. The reason, hard water film imprisons the cells so tissues become water-logged. Retention of fluid is the chief cause of obesity. Distilled water again breaks the cell barrier and the body weight returns to normal. Weight watchers will lose weight, regardless of present diet if they include 4-6 glasses of distilled water each day taken a half hour before each meal”

“DISTILLED WATER IS SAFE TO DRINK and should have no adverse effects on your health. Distillation merely REMOVES MOST OF THE DISSOLVED MATERIALS, WHICH ARE FOUND IN ALL NATURAL WATERS.”
—Raymond H. Bishop, Jr. M.D. Major General, Commander – Medical Corps. Department of the Army, U.S. Army Health Services Command
“DISTILLED WATER IS THE ACME OF PURITY. Nothing can be purer than that which is absolutely pure. For medicinal purposes, the highest authorities are agreed that PURE WATER IS PREFERABLE TO THE SO-CALLED MEDICINAL SPRING WATERS. The latter all contain more or less impurities in the form of earthy salts or organic matter, which is not the case with distilled water. For flushing the kidneys, stimulating the sluggish liver, eliminating waste matter from the system; indeed for all affections in which medical waters are believed to be efficacious, PURE DISTILLED WATER FURNISHES THE LONG SOUGHT DESIDERATUM.”

ELDON C. MUEHLING:
“LIQUID WATER IS THE BEST KNOWN SOLVENT IN EXISTENCE. In fact, it is commonly referred to as the universal solvent. This means it can dissolve more of the greatest number of substances than any other liquid.”
“WATER MOLECULES, in contact with foreign substances, have been compared to cowboys cutting cattle from a herd — they FORCE THEIR WAY BETWEEN CLUSTERS OF PARTICLES, BREAK THEM APART AND HOLD THEM AT BAY.”
“MERELY FILTERING THE WATER IS LIKE USING A BAND-AID. DISTILLATION, ON THE OTHER HAND, IS MORE LIKE DOING SURGERY ON THE WATER.”
— Eldon C. Muehling, excerpts from “Pure Water Now: It’s Time for Action”
“When one drinks impure, dirty water, the body acts as a filter, trapping a percentage of the solids suspended in the water. A filter eventually becomes clogged and useless – fit only to be thrown away. The human body might well face the same fate.
But the basic point – that ONLY DISTILLED WATER AVOIDS MINERAL BUILDUPS IN THE BODY – is an inarguable one. The deposits, which build up in a teakettle from repeated use, are traces of minerals left behind as the water evaporates. DISTILLED WATER LEAVES NO SUCH TRACES – in a teakettle or in the human body. It is true that in most hospitals distilled water is used for newborn infants; distilled water is prescribed for heart patients in many cardiac wards. And it is true that kidney stones and other mineral-like buildups in the body are much more common in the areas where the drinking water has high levels in inorganic minerals – and distilled water has none of those at all.
IT IS WITHOUT DOUBT THE BEST WATER AVAILABLE TO MAN – and the only truly pure water available in our waste-laden society.”
—Dr. Paul Conn, from “Not A Drop To Drink”
“DISTILLATION IS EFFECTIVE BECAUSE IT REMOVES THE WATER FROM THE CONTAMINANTS, RATHER THAN TRYING TO REMOVE THE CONTAMINANTS FROM THE WATER. Distillers have several major advantages over other purification systems. A good distillation system pretty much eliminates the need to ever have your water tested. It’s the only purification system I know that removes every kind of bacteria, virus, parasite, and pathogen, as well as pesticides, herbicides, organic and inorganic chemicals, heavy metals (dissolved or otherwise), AND EVEN RADIOACTIVE CONTAMINANTS.”
— Dr. David Williamson, D.C., from “Why You Should Drink Distilled Water”
HAROLD D. FOSTER:
“Interestingly, studies examining the role that cholesterol may play in plaque formation have shown that the 42-amino acid form of beta- amyloid builds up more easily in the brains of rabbits given tap water than it does if these animals drink distilled water.

RUSSELL T. TRALL:
“And the ‘Matchless Sanative’ –who has not known of its marvelous cures? Twenty-five or thirty years ago it was all the rage in some places. I have seen many chronic invalids who had worn out half a dozen regular physicians, and swallowed the whole round of patent nostrums; but nothing ever did them so much good as the ‘Matchless Sanative.’ Well, IT WAS A MATCHLESS MEDICINE. It was the very best remedy, as a universal panacea, ever sold to an afflicted mortal at an extravagant price, for IT WAS PURE WATER, AND NOTHING ELSE”

PETER A. LODEWICK:
“THE ONLY TYPE OF WATER THAT SEEMS TO BE FIT FOR CONSUMPTION IS DISTILLED WATER, which is water that is absolutely free of any minerals or chemicals. Distilled water is made pure by first being heated to the point of vaporization, so that all of the ‘impurities’ are left behind. Then, the water vapor is condensed. The process results in water that is in its purest form. DISTILLATION IS THE SINGLE MOST EFFECTIVE METHOD OF WATER PURIFICATION.”

ROBERT D. WILLIX JR:
“If you decide on bottled water, make sure it’s distilled, (however), in the long run you’ll save money if you clean your water at home. It’s more convenient than hauling gallon jugs from the store. THE ‘GOLD STANDARD’ FOR PURIFYING WATER IS A SYSTEM THAT DISTILLS YOUR WATER and filters it. You have the comfort of knowing there is no chlorine, fluoride, bacteria, viruses, pesticides, or lead. YOU GET NOTHING BUT H2O.”

“You can try drinking bottled distilled water if you like. It’s water that has been turned into steam so its impurities are left behind. The steam is then condensed to make pure water. The process of distillation kills and removes virtually all bacteria, viruses, heavy metals, and other organic and inorganic contaminants. Once distilled, the water is as pure as water can reasonably be.”
“As far as acidity goes, distilled water is close to a neutral pH and has no effect on the body’s acid/base balance. Distilled water is safe to drink, and the kind of water I use myself.”

ROBERT W. FLINCHBAUGHT:
“The evidence that DISTILLED WATER ACTS AS A SOLVENT within the body, dissolving the inorganic mineral deposits, is very important. A growing body of evidence suggests that distilled water dissolves AND REMOVES THESE DISEASE-CAUSING MINERALS AND FLUSHES OUT THE HUNDREDS OF DANGEROUS CHEMICALS that have been taken into the body as well. Distilled water is not only free from pollutants, but it apparently helps remove them as well from the cells of the body, thus PURIFYING THE BODY SO THAT IT CAN FUNCTION AS IT SHOULD.”

“DISTILLED WATER IS THE PUREST FORM AVAILABLE. DISTILLED WATER HELPS TO EXCRETE EXCESSIVE HEAVY METALS FROM THE BODY.”
—Vicki Glassburn, from “Who Killed Candida?”
“DISTILLED WATER IS ‘empty’ water – a hungry water, A WATER CAPABLE OF ABSORBING BODY POISONS. You have had the experience of trying to use an old post office blotter on the desk. Everybody had used it and it is so full of ink that it will not suck up any more. So it is with a ‘full’ water, a water full of chlorine, aluminum, etc. Such water does not have the capacity of absorbing body impurities.”
—Dr. Charles McFerrin, writing in the July 1955 issue of Nature’s Path
“The late Dr. Lambe, of London, was so thoroughly convinced of the IMPORTANCE OF THE PUREST WATER in the treatment of Cancers, Scrofula, and Cachexias generally, that HE RESTRICTED HIS PATIENTS TO THE USE OF DISTILLED WATER. And his success was remarkable.”

“The greatest damage done by inorganic minerals (hard)—plus waxy cholesterol and salt—is to the small arteries and other blood vessels of the brain (75% water). Hardening of the arteries and calcification of blood vessels starts on the day you start taking inorganic chemicals (and minerals from tap water) into our bodies.”
“WHEN DISTILLED WATER ENTERS THE BODY, IT LEAVES NO RESIDUE OF ANY KIND. It is free of salts and sodium. It is the most perfect water for the healthy functioning of the kidneys(83% water). It is the perfect liquid for the blood(83% water), the ideal liquid for the efficient functioning of the lungs(86% water), stomach, liver(85% water) and other vital organs. Why? Because it is free of all inorganic minerals. IT IS SO PURE THAT ALL LIQUID DRUG PRESCRIPTIONS ARE FORMULATED WITH DISTILLED WATER.”

“Common water can be RENDERED PERFECTLY PURE BY DISTILLATION”
“It is not possible in the very nature of things —in the organization of our bodies and in its relations to external objects— to improve upon pure water, neither as a circulating fluid conveying nourishment to the tissues of our bodies, nor as a quencher of thirst.”
“PURE WATER CIRCULATES THROUGH THE MOST DELICATE TISSUES, WITHOUT THE LEAST PERCEPTIBLE FRICTION OR IRRITATION, without the least perceptible disturbance to the senses, except by its temperature, as it may be warmer or cooler than the tissues; and when applied to an abraded surface, it falls on it AS HARMLESSLY AND BLANDLY AS FALLS THE SNOWFLAKE ON THE RIVER.”
— Dr. J. G. Webster, M.D., from “THE TWO SYSTEMS” an article in The Herald of Health, Vol. 2 – No. 5, New York, November, 1863
“DISTILLED WATER ACTS AS A SOLVENT IN THE BODY. It dissolves food substances so they can be assimilated and taken into every cell. IT DISSOLVES INORGANIC MINERAL SUBSTANCE, ACID CRYSTALS AND ALL OTHER WASTE PRODUCTS SO THAT THESE CAN BE ELIMINATED IN THE PROCESS OF PURIFYING THE BODY.”
“Distilled water has the inherent characteristics of a magnet, which picks discarded minerals and with the assistance of the blood and the lymph, transports them to the kidneys for elimination. IT IS THIS KIND OF MINERAL ELIMINATION THAT IS ERRONEOUSLY REFERRED TO AS LEACHING.THE NOTION THAT DISTILLED WATER LEACHES MINERALS FROM THE BODY IS INACCURATE; IT DOES NOTHING OF THE SORT. Distilled water collects and removes inorganic mineral that have been rejected by the cells and tissues and which, if not evacuated, can cause serious damage.
Odorless, colorless and tasteless, distilled water contains no solid mater of any kind, no minerals, organic or inorganic and is made solely of the two gases, hydrogen and oxygen. It can be used as a drinking water, for cooking, for electric irons and batteries; and it is so pure that it is used for intravenous feeding, inhalation therapy, prescriptions and baby formulas. ENJOY A GUARANTEED CLEAN GLASS OF DISTILLED WATER THE NEXT TIME YOU NEED SOMETHING TO DRINK AND RELAX.”

FRANK N. HEPBURN, USDA:
“THERE IS NOTHING ABOUT DISTILLED WATER THAT WOULD MAKE IT HARMFUL FOR THE BODY. It may be helpful to remember that distilled water is the only water available for crews of Naval vessels at sea.”
—Frank N. Hepburn, Chief, Nutrient Data Research Branch, United States Department of Agriculture, Consumer Nutrition Division
“Distilled water is water which has been heated to the boiling point so that IMPURITIES ARE SEPARATED FROM THE WATER which itself becomes vapor or steam. It is then condensed back into pure liquid form. THE IMPURITIES REMAIN IN THE RESIDUE which is simply thrown away. Distilled water contains no solids, minerals or trace elements, and has no taste. Distillation removes the debris, bacteria, and other contaminants.
DISTILLED WATER HAS BEEN A WATER PURITY STANDARD in analytical labs, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and many other industries for many years and more recently A GOLD STANDARD FOR DRINKING. Distillation duplicates nature’s hydrologic cycle. The sun’s heat vaporizes the water and draws it from the earth’s surface into the atmosphere. The impurities remain. As the vapor cools, it falls back to the earth as rain, snow, and other precipitation. As it leaves the clouds, the precipitation is pure but as it makes is descent to the earth it picks up the various forms of pollution found in the air. Then, as it reaches the ground, the water continues to pick-up contaminants on its way back to the various bodies of water on the earth. In mechanized distillation, water is boiled in a distiller, which creates steam that rises and leaves virtually all contaminants behind in the boiling chamber. Steam is then collected and condensed into pure, clean distilled water leaving the impurities behind to eventually flush down the drain. Because of the heat involved in the process of creating steam, all forms of bacteria and all water borne diseases are destroyed. DISTILLED WATER IS THE ONLY FORM OF WATER, WHICH IS FREE FROM ALL CONTAMINANTS AND IMPURITIES. DISTILLED WATER IS THE ONLY CLEAN WATER. VIRTUALLY EVERYTHING IS REMOVED FROM THE WATER BY STEAM DISTILLATION”.
— Dr. Michael Colgan, from, “Optimum Sports Nutrition”
“Now as to the argument that distilled water leaches out minerals. This is true, and this is exactly what we want it to do. The minerals it leaches out are of the unusable, ionic form and we want these to leave the body rather than be deposited and cause disease. Distilled water does not leach out significant amounts of biologically available minerals because these are quickly taken up by the body on an as needed basis. If they are present in excess then they are filtered through the kidneys and this is exactly what needs to happen with all things which are in excess in the circulation. DISTILLED WATER CLEANSES THE BODY through promoting healthy kidney function.”
— Dr. Ron Kennedy, M.D.
“DON’T TAKE UNNECESSARY RISKS, DRINK HEALTHY, DRINK DISTILLED. To be Sure, several drinks of local tap water will not kill you, but common sense will tell you that YOUR BODY CANNOT FUNCTION AND SURVIVE WITH DAILY INGESTION OF POISON.”
— Dr. Ian Shillington N.D., from, “The Importance of Distilled Water”
“DISTILLED WATER REMOVES POISONOUS SUBSTANCES and inorganic mineral matter from the human body. This process will be impeded if the water you drink is already contaminated.”
” …only distilled water produces a completely negative ion reaction in the system. Negative ions are alkaline-forming. These negative charged ions draw the positively charged acid waste products, flushing them into the elimination channels of the body for excretion. So even though distilled water tests slightly acidic, because of its negative charge, A MORE ALKALINE INTERNAL SYSTEMIC ENVIRONMENT IS CREATED WHEN DISTILLED WATER IS CONSUMED.”
“Your body is 60-80 % water; water is the chief catalyst and medium for all the energy reactions that take place. Using higher energy, wet, DISTILLED WATER ASSURES THAT THE BODY’S METABOLIC ENVIRONMENT IS AT ITS BEST HYDRATION.”
— from “Why Distilled Water?” by Dr. Varah Siedlecki. DOM, DN, PH.D.
ALEXANDER F. BEDDOE:
“First of all DISTILLED WATER IS A HIGH ENERGY WET WATER. In order for it to end up high energy wet water it is going to have to become cationic. Remember, cations can have anywhere from 500 to 999 milhouse units of energy. The closer the distilled water is to 999 the higher energy and wetter it is going to be. Therefore, being highly cationic means it is also going to have a pH on the cationic side of the physiologic “neutral” point of 6.40. In other words, all distilled water is going to test cationic (acid).
This is not a problem, first because water is not to be a source of mineral nutrition — it is to be water and high energy water alone. Second, it has to be converted to the body’s frequency just like food energy. The “electron press” (anions against cations) that causes the resistance for this process to happen is not effected by the pH of the distilled water because there is no mineral base to react .”
— Dr. Alexander F. Beddoe, DDS, Advanced Ideals Institute
THEODORE A. BAROODY:
“Tissue acid wastes, which lead to an unwholesome death, are positively charged. DISTILLED WATER, BEING NEGATIVELY CHARGED, DRAWS TO IT THE POSITIVELY CHARGED ACID WASTE PRODUCTS and flushes them into the elimination channels.
Even though most distilled water tests acidic, critics of distilled water must understand that BECAUSE OF ITS NEGATIVE CHARGE, A MORE ALKALINE ENVIRONMENT IS CREATED IN THE BODY when imbibed.”
— from “Alkalize or Die” by Dr Theodore A Baroody
“I am often asked about distilled water versus spring water. Distilled water is pure H20. CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF, OUR BODIES DO NOT ASSIMILATE THE INORGANIC MINERALS THAT ARE IN SPRING WATER or any other type of water other than distilled water. Rain water is distilled water also but in a polluted environment may uptake some of the environmental pollution.
The job of fruits and vegetables is to convert the inorganic minerals in the earth to organic minerals which our body can assimilate. IF WE COULD ASSIMILATE INORGANIC MINERALS WE COULD SUCK ON RUSTY NAILS TO GET OUR IRON REQUIREMENTS or eat dolomite and stones to get calcium and magnesium. IN FACT, THE INORGANIC MINERALS IN NON-DISTILLED WATER ARE STONE-LIKE AND LEAD TO DEPOSITS IN THE JOINTS which cause stiffness and plaque in the vascular system which causes arthrosclerosis.
After making 5 gallons of water my distiller has about a tablespoon of stone like material left behind…better in the distiller than in my body. THE AVERAGE PERSON CAN EASILY TAKE IN SEVERAL POUNDS OF STONE-LIKE MATERIAL IN A TWENTY TO THIRTY YEAR PERIOD OF TIME.
THE MYTH THAT DISTILLED WATER LEACHES MINERALS OUT OF THE BODY IS SIMPLY THAT, A MYTH.”

“CONSUMPTION OF LOW TDS WATER”
(NOTE: DISTILLED WATER falls under the category of “LOW TDS WATER.” The term “LOW TDS WATER” means water with a low Total Dissolved Solids count. Distilled Water is in the category of “LOW TDS WATER” because it generally has a count of zero parts per million of dissolved solids.)
A COMMITTEE REPORT BY THE WATER QUALITY ASSOCIATION, SCIENCE ADVISORY COMMITTEE 1991-1993 With Review By Dr. Lee T. Rozelle and Dr. Ronald L. Wathen, M.D. MARCH 1993
“The scope of this paper is limited to answering whether low TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) water contributes to the loss of minerals from body tissues, producing associated harmful side effects.”
“evidence is presented to demonstrate that THE CONSUMPTION OF WATER WITH LOW LEVELS OF MINERALS IS SAFE.”
“it is common for submarines TO PROVIDE NOTHING BUT PURIFIED WATER FOR MONTHS AT A TIME, all with no reported ill effects. This was confirmed with separate sources at the David Taylor Research Center in Annapolis, the Naval Sea Systems Command, the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, and the Navy Environmental Health Center. Finally, the Surgeon General directed the Navy to address the subject formally in 1972. The conclusion was that DRINKING DISTILLED WATER IS NOT HARMFUL.”
“IN SHORT, THE HUMAN BODY IS NOT A LEAD OR COPPER PIPE WHICH “LEACHES” IN THE PRESENCE OF PURIFIED WATER.”
“There are NO KNOWN DOCUMENTED EXPERIENCES WHICH SHOW that consuming low Total Dissolved Solids water will create ANY LONG-TERM HEALTH EFFECTS.”
“thousands of private wells, as well as numerous small municipal systems in the U.S., produce low Total Dissolved Solids water. NO KNOWN HEALTH EFFECTS OR PROBLEMS HAVE BEEN REPORTED as a result of this widespread practice.”
In a field test in Boulder, Colorado with about 50 families, an experimental, zero discharge water system provided drinking water containing about .05 parts per million TDS. NO ILL HEALTH EFFECTS WERE CAUSED AS A RESULT OF DRINKING THIS WATER.
In conclusion, the field experiences cited suggest that THERE ARE NO LONG-TERM ILL HEALTH EFFECTS, SPECIFICALLY THE MINERAL LEACHING FROM HUMAN TISSUE, DUE TO THE CONSUMPTION OF LOW TDS WATER.”

When you read the different doctors describe how distilled water melts garbage inside of you, make sure you understand that this translates into real world events. As in, garbage WILL start to pour out of you! It has to come out! But better out than in, right? So this means, you WILL have detox symptoms. And everybody is different as to how they detox, where they detox, and what they detox. It all depends on what YOU have ingested and inhaled your whole life and what routes your body chooses to eject the garbage.
Know that these symptoms are only temporary. They can only last as long as you still have garbage inside of you. You can dial in the speed too. If it’s too much detox for you, back off on the distilled water, eat healthy, consume more raw fruits, vegetables, herbs, nuts and seeds and then come back to it again when you feel stronger.
Here is a link to a short audio clip specifically about detox symptoms…
Remember, when they say this is the greatest solvent known to man, THEY’RE NOT KIDDING!!!
