Distilled Water And Disease

The U.S. Public Health Service, after much research, recommended distilled water to their various clinics, as did the Duke Medical Center in North Carolina. Distilled water is claimed to have no damaging effect on the heart or to deposit any unwanted material into the joints.

Arthritis, hardening of the arteries, diabetes, gallstones, kidney stones and cataracts have been allied with drinking impure water. Distilled water is said to break up mineral deposits and play an important role in the treatment and prevention of such diseases. There are two forms of minerals: organic and inorganic. Organic minerals derive from living matter, and are essential for good health. They are found in vegetables, fruit, grains, meats and nuts. Inorganic minerals, on the other hand, are not used by the body, and include carbonate compounds, calcium, iron and magnesium found in regular tap water. The result of ingesting these minerals is an accumulation of debris in our bodies. We do not need the minerals found in water to supplement our daily requirements of essential minerals.

Interestingly, distilled water has the unique ability to pick up mineral deposits that have accumulated in cells, joints and artery walls. It flushes out inorganic minerals and pollutants which would otherwise be retained in vital organs such as the liver, kidneys, intestines and fatty tissue. This decreases the incidence of gallstones and kidney stones, and even arthritic pain lessens as joints become more supple and moveable.

Many experts say drinking distilled water increases the purity of the blood stream, thereby strengthening not only the kidneys, but all the body organs. Many medical patients troubled with kidney and bladder infections are reported to have seen their symptoms vanish after drinking only distilled water.
