Experts Tell The Truth About Distilled Water

For years and years, we have been told that distilled water is harmful and will leach minerals out of the body. Now, the truth is finally coming forth and we can share what we’ve known for a long time as experts tell the truth about distilled water. The only water that runs through all water-based life forms is distilled water. Below are the individual writings, thoughts, and quotes — experts tell the truth about the benefits of distilled water.

Experts Tell The Truth About Distilled Water

ARTHUR R. REYNOLDS —Dr. Arthur R. Reynolds, M.D., Health Commissioner of Chicago

“It may safely be taught that THE ONLY ABSOLUTELY PURE WATER IS THAT PURIFIED BY DISTILLATION. Instruct the public how distillation can readily and cheaply be done. It furnishes a fruitful yield for the genius that will devise a small distilling apparatus for the use of every family. It would be safe to teach that the GENEROUS USE OF PURE WATER both within and without the body has never yet done any harm; that the functional ailments that affect the great host of mankind, are in a great part due to the fact of the imperfect elimination of waste matter, and that GENEROUS LIBATIONS OF PURE DISTILLED WATER is a most potent agent TO FLUSH THEM FROM THE BODY, through the skin, the lungs, the kidneys, and the bowels. The diseases caused by impure water are numerous and fatal.”

ELMER ELLSWORTH — “Distilled Water and Longevity” by Elmer Ellsworth Carey, Chicago, in Suggestion magazine, Volume 10, January 1, 1903

“The first step in the physical regeneration of the race is a crusade against ordinary or “raw” drinking water. When distilled water is universally used humanity will take a long step forward. It is the duty of the state to see that only perfect drinking water is used; we look after cesspools, drains, noxious odors, plumbing, adulterated food, etc., and the water supply is more important than all these. If distilled water was in every home, the board of health would have to go out of business.”  https://vdocument.in/distilled-water-and-longevity.html?page=1

GARY NULL — Dr. Gary Null, Ph.D.,from, “Gary Null’s Ultimate Anti-Aging Program,” Kensington Publishing Corp., 1999, Based on the PBS Documentary, “How to Live Forever” 

“You should DRINK AT LEAST ONE GALLON of distilled 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 DISTILLED 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.”

EDWARD GROUP — Dr. Edward Group, DC, NP, DACBN, DABFM, Founder and CEO of Global Healing and Global Healing Institute

“The only water that nature or GOD creates is distilled water. It is the only water we should consume. We have been lied to that distilled water is unhealthy and unsafe. It is the only healing water that removes plaque and calcifications from our bodies due to the massive amounts of man-made poisons and inorganic minerals we are consuming. Without consuming distilled water we will turn our bodies to stone over time, just like wood turns to petrified wood by soaking in inorganic mineral water.”

C.W. DELACY EVANS — Dr. C.W. DeLacy Evans, M.D., from How To Prolong Life 

“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 retardant of the ossifying conditions which appear to constitute the condition of old age.”

NIKOLA TESLA Nikola Tesla, when asked about his predictions for the next 100 years in an article appearing in Liberty magazine, February 9th, 1935.

“…ONLY A LUNATIC WILL DRINK UNSTERILIZED WATER.”

BERNARR MACFADDEN — Bernarr Macfadden, from Macfadden’s Encyclopedia of Physical Culture, 1911. 

” …it is important that we GIVE TO THE BODY A SUFFICIENT QUANTITY OF DISTILLED 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 AND MARGUERITE MACFADDEN — Bernarr and Marguerite MacFadden, from “Physical Culture for Babies” 1904. 

“Baby’s Bath: Have ready also a glass of distilled water, a few spoonfuls of which will prove a refreshing drink to the baby after his bath.” “Baby’s Natural Food: The secretion of the breast, proves all that a baby requires unless it be an occasional spoonful of distilled water.”

ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL— Dr. Alexander Graham Bell, Inventor of the Telephone 

“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.”

JACK BELL, AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION – Jack A. Bell – Assistant Director, May 17, 1985; American Medical Association; Division of Personal and Public Health Policy 

“To the best of our knowledge, there would not be any adverse health effects from THE CONTINUED INGESTION OF DISTILLED WATER.”

BRIAN CLEMENT — Dr. Brian Clement, from the video, “Why Choose Distilled Water?” 

“Distilled Water is a pure water. A lot of people have been misled 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.”

ALLEN E. BANIK — Allen E. Banik, M.D. excerpts from, “The Choice is Clear”

“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.”

DOUGLAS HOOVER — DouglasHoover, author of “Distilled Water and Health,” Founder of Aquamedia Research Group

“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 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.” “$10,000 Cash will be paid to anyone who can prove that ‘early death’ comes from drinking distilled water.”

RICHARD SCHULZE — Dr. Richard Schulze, N.D., M.H. from his “Kidney Stone Dissolving Routine” 

“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…”

SANFORD BENNET — Mr. Sanford Bennet, excerpted from The San Francisco Call, September 24, 1900 

“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.”

HOMER WAKEFIELD — Dr. Homer Wakefield, M.D., of Bloomington, Ill., from the article, “Pure Water Not a Poison” in The National Druggist, Volumes 29-30, 1899 

” …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.”

BODYBUILDING LEGEND KELLIE EVERTS —Kellie Everts, from “Campaign for Women’s Bodybuilding: Interview with the True Champion of Women’s Bodybuilding” 

“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.”

ANDREW NORTON WEBBER — [2011] Andrew Norton Webber interview (Urine therapy, distilled water) by  Chrissy McMahon

“…And the chlorine 7 the fluoride, which are both halides, in the drinking water go directly to the pineal gland and freeze it, turn it into a stone, calcify it……When they do autopsies on people in fluoridated societies, they find fluoride at about 5 to 10 part per million through most of the body. But when they get to the pineal gland during the autopsy, it’s at 22,000 ppm. It goes there like a magnet…….having a rock in the very, very centre of your head, at your most important, most important, most precious gland for thinking, that would be the obvious very first place you’d want to look for problems. And the beauty of distilled water is that it melts that. Most people aren’t aware that there is a massive conspiracy to hide the knowledge of distilled water.

…Gives you the impression that it will, say, leech all the calcium out of your bones and you’ll literally crumple to the floor. Or it will leech all the potassium out of your system, and you’ll have a heart attack. And which is completely not true. And I can prove it to you. And the other thing where people get it. say you ask most doctors, “should I drink distilled water?” They go, “No, no, no, no. It’ll leech minerals from the body.” And where they’re largely getting that from, along with that other article, is from the W.H.O. -the World Health Organization- the supposed pinnacle of collected science health knowledge. They have an article, I think it might’ve come out in the 70s, I’m not quite sure, but it’s titled, “De-Mineralized Water”. And so you can Google that, too. And in that article you’ll find a line akin to, “do not drink distilled water, because it’ll leech minerals from the body.” And a few sentences later it says something else like, “and by the way, you should add fluoride to your water”. So if you understand how poisonous fluoride is, that kind of helps tip you off as to where that article is coming from… The W.H.O. is part of the U.N. And the U.N. has a stated goal of reducing the world’s population. They have a de-population program. So if you want to participate in the U.N.’s de-population program, by all means, stay away from distilled water.”

CLIFFORD C. DENNISON —Dr. Clifford C. Dennison, Ed. D., an Associate Professor at Lee College in Cleveland, Tennessee, and a lifelong water researcher 

“…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, gallstones, cataracts and emphysema) when they BEGAN DRINKING DISTILLED WATER EXCLUSIVELY.”

EDGAR CAYCE — from, “Edgar Cayce Encyclopedia of Healing” by Reba Ann Karp 

“Also highly recommended was an AMPLE FLUID INTAKE. A general suggestion was SIX TO EIGHT GLASSES OF PURE WATER DAILY to aid in the elimination of toxic wastes from the kidneys. Cayce also advised drinking half to three-quarters of a glass of lukewarm water each morning on arising to help clear the kidneys. In general, LARGE AMOUNTS OF WATER are best taken between meals rather than with them.”

HUGH LYNN CAYCE —Edgar Cayce, from“WATER: SYMBOL OF LIFE” an article by Hugh Lynn Cayce in THE SEARCHLIGHT, a publication of the Association for Research and Enlightenment, Incorporated, VIRGINIA BEACH, VA, August 1956, Vol. VIII, No. 8 

The following is from “WATER: SYMBOL OF LIFE” an article by Hugh Lynn Cayce discussing Edgar Cayce’s readings on water…“Everyone should drink at least five or six glasses of liquid every day. This may be in the form of fruit or vegetable juices, milk, water or other liquids. Keep plenty of water in the system, so that eliminations through the body are good.” No. 137-101 “There should be more water taken into the system, IN A MORE CONSISTENT MANNER, so that the system — especially in the hepatics and kidneys — may function more normally. Thus the correct manner of elimination of drosses will be produced in the system. For there are many channels of elimination from the system. Lack of water in the system creates an excess of those drosses which would normally be cleansed through the alimentary canal and the kidneys, and forces these (drosses) back into the capillary circulation. This brings about congestion and a weakened condition, either through mental strain or physical strain for portions of the system; producing ill effects.” No. 257-P-7. “We need more water in the system, systematically taken, so that the acid in the system may be dissolved.” No. 779-P-5

“To relieve these (catarrhal) conditions, we would first of all take more water into the system. Drink quantities of water. Have a specific time, and keep the system flooded with water until eliminations are fully set up throughout the system.” No. 779-P-6. We see then how important it is to firmly establish a fixed habit of drinking plenty of water, regardless of whether we are thirsty. We may not relish the idea, but it can be done. Apparently thirst is not a reliable indicator of the body’s optimum need for water.In reading No. 257-P-7, the question was asked, “How can desire for more water be created?” This was the answer: “Desire for water can be created by taking it, so that the body will call for it when the habit has once been started.”

SUZANNE BENNETT — Dr. Suzanne Bennett, D.C., CCSP, from “The Hidden Dangers of Drinking Water” July 19, 2012, in The Huffington Post 

“Purified water comes from two methods of filtration: either distillation or reverse osmosis. Many patients ask me, “Isn’t distilled water — dead water? There are no minerals in it!” Yes, both distilled and reverse osmosis water are devoid of minerals, but ingesting mineral-free purified water is not harmful to your body.” “DRINK THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF PURIFIED WATER — Dehydration slows your metabolism down, as well as the natural healing process of the body. When you drink adequate amounts of water, you can reduce allergic symptoms AND FEEL MORE ALERT AND ENERGETIC.”

CHESTER HANDLEY Dr. Chester Handley, D.C., M.D., from his article, “The Importance of Distilled Water in Aging”

“I cannot emphasize enough THE IMPORTANCE OF DRINKING DISTILLED WATER FOR CLEANSING the bloodstream, 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.

Distilled water has been evaporated into a vapor, split apart into a molecule of hydrogen and oxygen, turning them into a gas that rises up in to the atmosphere, then cooled back down and condensed back into water. The same process happens in a distillery when it distills water. It heats up the water into a gas, all the impurities are left behind, all the waste products are left behind, then it is condensed and turned back into pure water and becomes the ultimate pure water because of one very important factor that is not present in any other water…it is molecularly unstable. It means that when it goes into your bloodstream it breaks apart easier and latches on to debris, waste products and unwanted materials that are floating around in your bloodstream.

It is also one of the best ways there is for reducing blood pressure. I made up two charts years ago when I was doing my studies on body detoxification with distilled water, from 1865 to 1965. In 1865, diseases that ranked in the high 30’s and low 40’s became the first four killers in 1965…and they were all cardiovascular. I then made another chart from 1865 to 1965 to show the reduction in the use of drinking rainwater. The two charts were virtually biometrically opposite. As people quit drinking rainwater, cardiovascular diseases went up. When the blood vascular system is clean you have less headaches, you have less pain, you have more oxygen and nutrients available for the body and more healing capacity for the body.
It has been almost twenty years ago now that a man came down to my office that had arthritis so bad he could hardly get out of a straight-backed chair. His pain was excruciating. We put him on the detoxification program, took him off of all grain in his diet, instructed him to eat only fruit, vegetables, protein and meat products, and put him on distilled water every half hour while he was awake. It is hard to believe a month later this same man was out working in his garden having the time of his life.”

JOB — The Book of Job, from, The Holy Bible, “JOB 36:27” 

“For he draws up the drops of water, HE DISTILLS HIS MIST IN THE RAIN which the skies pour down, AND DROP UPON MAN ABUNDANTLY.”

OTOMAN HANISH  — Dr.Otoman Hanish, M.D., D.D., from “The Distilled Water Cure”

“Oftentimes 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, or 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: affects 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 an easy accomplishment if the quantity is systematically regulated as follows: 1. On awakening take two cups. 2. Another two cups shortly before breakfast. 3. Two cups in the middle of the morning. 4. Two more 20 to 30 minutes before the mid-day meal. 5. Two cups in the middle of the afternoon. 6. Another two cups 20 to 30 minutes before dinner.7. 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 — Ann and Paul Malkmus/Hallelujah Acres, Purified vs Distilled Water Q&A

“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 —Dr. Norman W. Walker, from his books, “Water Can Undermine Your Health” and “Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices” respectively. 

“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 that 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.”

OLIN IDOL — Dr. Olin Idol, N.D., C.N.C., from, “Distilled Water” — http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrugJVm1bMQ

“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 bodies. 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.”

MAX GERSON — Dr. Max Gerson, M.D., from, Gerson Therapy Handbook 

“The Gerson household kitchen supplies: …WATER DISTILLER” “Gerson PATIENTS NEED PURE WATER, …Most cities have bottled water businesses that DELIVER PURIFIED AND DISTILLED WATER TO HOMES.” “If your municipal water supply is fluoridated, it is imperative that you USE DISTILLED WATER FOR ALL PATIENT INTAKE.”

LORETTA LANPHIER Loretta Lanphier, Naturopath Practitioner, BCTN, Founder and CEO of Oasis Advanced Wellness (OAWHealth.com)

I’ve been drinking distilled water since a stage three colon cancer diagnosis in 2000. I’ve had no issues or complications from it and now, water out of the tap tastes “nasty” to me. Often I can literally smell the chemicals in tap water. Distilled water quenches my thirst perfectly and it’s been my go-to water for a long, long time. I recommend it to all my clients and make sure they understand why distilled water is the best water on this earth. I truly believe that it is a healing water to the entire body. Knowledge is powerful and it’s about time that people know the truth!

CHERYL R. SCOTT — Dr. Cheryl R. Scott, RN, PhD, IBCLC

“I just completed A 40 DAY DISTILLED WATER FAST TO HEAL MYSELF from significant degeneration of my knees secondary to osteoarthritis. My fast was fairly simple and straightforward. 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/PHOSPHORUS 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!”

J. H. TILDEN — Dr. J. H. Tilden, M.D., from IMPAIRED HEALTH, ITS CAUSE AND CURE: A Repudiation of the Conventional Treatment of Disease, 1921 

“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 percent water.”

CHARLES MAYO —Dr. Charles Mayo of the Mayo Clinic 

“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.”

LOUIS PASTEUR —Louis Pasteur 

“We drink 90 percent of our illnesses.”

JOHN HARVEY KELLOGG — Dr. JohnHarvey Kellogg, from, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg’s Child’s Guide to Health andHygiene—from “Distilled Water and Longevity” by Elmer Ellsworth Carey, Chicago, inSuggestion magazine, Volume 10, January 1, 1903. 

” …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.” “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 that has a lot of 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.”

ARISTOTLE — Aristotle, from Meterologica (II. 3), First published in 350 B.C. 
“Saltwater when it turns into vapor becomes sweet and the vapor does not form salt water again when it condenses. This I know by experiment. The same thing is true in every case of this kind: wine and ALL FLUIDS THAT EVAPORATE AND CONDENSE INTO A LIQUID STATE BECOME WATER. They are all water modified by a certain admixture, the nature of which determines the flavor.” “If one plunges a watertight vessel of wax into the ocean, it will hold, after 24 hours, a certain quantity of water, that filtered into it through the waxen walls, and THIS WATER WILL BE FOUND TO BE POTABLE, BECAUSE THE EARTHY AND SALTY COMPONENTS HAVE BEEN SIEVED OFF.”

BROWN LANDONE — Dr. Brown Landone, neurologist

“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.”

R.N. TOOKER — Dr. R. N.Tooker, Chicago, from “Distilled Water and Longevity” by Elmer Ellsworth Carey, Chicago, in Suggestion magazine, Volume 10, January 1, 1903

“DISTILLED WATER IS THE ACME OF PURITY. Nothing can be purer than that which is absolutely pure. For medicinal purposes, the highest authorities have 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 — Eldon C. Muehling, excerpts from “Pure Water Now: It’s Time for Action” 

“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.”

MICHAEL COLGAN Author of “Optimum Sports Nutrition”

Don’t believe the hogwash put out by “spring” or “mineral” water companies that distilled water leaches the minerals from your body. Any basic college test will reassure you that the human system doesn’t work that way. If it did, your cells would be at the mercy of all the varying osmotic gradients created in your gut by every meal you eat. Another bogus argument is that distilled water doesn’t provide essential minerals. Neither do “mineral waters”, at least in any useful quantity. We get our minerals mainly from vegetables or from supplements made directly from mineral-rich soils. https://www.purewaterinc.com/Html/newsletter_archive/the_pure_water_newsletter01.txt 

PAUL CONN —Dr. Paul Conn, from “Not A Drop To Drink”

“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 tea kettle from repeated use, are traces of minerals left behind as the water evaporates. DISTILLED WATER LEAVES NO SUCH TRACES – in a tea kettle 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.”

DAVID WILLIAMSON — Dr. David Williamson, D.C., from “Why You Should Drink Distilled Water” 

“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.”

HAROLD D. FOSTER — Dr. Harold D. Foster, from “What Really Causes Alzheimer’s Disease” 

“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. OBVIOUSLY, THIS SUGGESTS A WATER QUALITY ROLE IN ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE.”

RUSSELL T. TRALL —Dr. Russell T. Trall, M.D., from, The Month, a column in The Herald of Health, New York, December 1863

“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” — Dr. Russell T. Trall, M.D., from, “THE TRUE HEALING ART: Or, HYGIENIC vs. DRUG MEDICATION,” An Address Delivered at the Smithsonian Institute, Washington, D.C., 1862 – “If children were properly educated, or rather, IF MEDICAL MEN HAD NOT MISEDUCATED THE WORLD, EVERY A-B-C SCHOOL BOY AND GIRL WOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT PURE AIR AND PURE WATER ARE THE BEST”

JOHN R. CHRISTOPHER —Dr. John R. Christopher, from “Regenerative Diet” 

“Water is so valuable to the entire system of the human body that it is wise to use only the best. USE PURE STEAM DISTILLED WATER FOR HEALTH AND WELL BEING.”

PETER A. LODEWICK —Peter A. Lodewick, M.D., from ‘A Diabetic Doctor Looks at Diabetes’

“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.”

JOHN YIAMOYUIANNIS — John Yiamoyuiannis, Ph.D., from ‘Fluoride: The Aging Factor

“THE HOME DISTILLER IS THE BEST METHOD and also the best way to get distilled water. IT IS THE ONLY RELIABLE HOME WATER PURIFICATION FOR TAKING FLUORIDE OUT OF THE WATER.”

ACTING CHIEF OF BUREAU, J. F. URIE — J. F. Urie, ActingChief of Bureau, Department of the Navy, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, from“Distilled Water and Longevity” by Elmer Ellsworth Carey, Chicago, in Suggestion magazine, Volume 10, 1903 

“I have to state that there can be no two opinions as to the protection distilled water affords to crews of vessels and to stations of the Navy against infection from such diseases as are water-borne. When ONLY DISTILLED WATER IS USED FOR DRINKING and other purposes, diseases of this class, for example, cholera and typhoid, are little feared. It is conclusively proven that a large number of diseases to which human beings are a prey are introduced into the economy by means of contaminated water used for drinking purposes. Distilled water, as prepared and stored for use in the Navy, is of course free from infectious agents, and ITS GENERAL US IS A SOURCE OF GREAT COMFORT to the Medical Officers who have the maintenance of the health of the many men in their charge. When the water supply is under control, as onboard vessels of war, little apprehension is felt of the introduction of cholera, typhoid, etc. The numerous animal parasites that prey upon mankind and that are known to be water-borne find little place in the medical statistics of the Navy. In conclusion, I would say that THE GENERAL USE OF DISTILLED WATER IN THE NAVY is considered one of the principal factors in ESTABLISHING THE HIGH STANDARD OF HEALTH that is maintained in the Navy of today.”

ROBERT D. WILLIX JR —Robert D. Willix, Jr., M.D. from ‘Maximum Health’ 

“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.”

VAN DEN BURG — Dr. Van Den Burg, of New York, from, ‘Hygiene’ in Suggestion magazine, Volume 10, January 1, 1903

“PURE WATER, WITH AS LITTLE SOLID MATTER AS POSSIBLE, and water that is especially free from lime salts, IS ABOUT THE ONLY DRINK THAT CAN BE SAID TO BE GOOD FOR RHEUMATISM.”

ANDREW WEIL — Dr. Andrew Weil, M.D. 

“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.”

EDWARD M. WAGNER —Dr. Edward M. Wagner, from “How to Stay Out of the Doctor’s Office” 

“Chronic Fatigue Syndrome sufferers are instructed to DRINK DISTILLED WATER.”

DAVID C. KENNEDY —David C. Kennedy, D.D.S.: ‘How To Save Your Teeth: Toxic-Free Preventive Dentistry’ 

“Even tap water invariably contains a variety of poisons such as chlorine, chloramine, asbestos, pesticides, fluoride, copper, mercury, and lead. THE BEST WAY TO REMOVE ALL THESE CONTAMINANTS IS BY DISTILLING.”

ROBERT W. FLINCHBAUGHT —Dr. Robert W. Flinchbaught, from “Pure Water is Life” 

“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.”

VICKI GLASSBURN —Vicki Glassburn, from “Who Killed Candida?” 

“DISTILLED WATER IS THE PUREST FORM AVAILABLE. DISTILLED WATER HELPS TO EXCRETE EXCESSIVE HEAVY METALS FROM THE BODY.”

CHARLES MCFERRIN Dr. Charles McFerrin, writing in the July 1955 issue of Nature’s Path 

“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 has used it and it is so full of ink that it will not suck up anymore. 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.”

CHARLES W. LITTLEFIELD — Dr. Charles W. Littlefield, M.D., from Man, Minerals and Masters, 1937 

“EVAPORATION OF WATER, a process universal on sea and land, GENERATES A SUBTLE MAGNETISM WHICH IS THE VITAL FORCE OF PLANTS AND ANIMALS.”

WILLIAM LAMBE — from Herald of Health, Volume 2, in the article, “The Hygiean Home” by Russell T. Trall, M.D. 

“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.”

TEOFILIO DE LA TORRE — from Herald of Health, Volume 2, in the article, “The Hygiean Home” by Russell T. Trall, M.D.  

“Instead of drinking the hard water of springs or the chlorinated water of the cities, it will be TO OUR ADVANTAGE TO DRINK DISTILLED WATER …to prevent calcification of the body.”

MAJOR WALTER TOLLE CAW — Major Walter Tolle Caw,Surgeon U. S. Army, from “Distilled Water and Longevity” by Elmer Ellsworth Carey, Chicago, in Suggestion magazine, Volume 10, 1903 

“I am directed by the Acting Surgeon General to state that existing orders in the Philippines require ALL DRINKING WATER USED BY UNITED STATES TROOPS TO BE DISTILLED, or at places where this cannot be done, to be boiled twenty minutes. It is not too much to say that THIS PRECAUTION HAS SAVED AN ENORMOUS NUMBER OF LIVES during the prevalence of cholera and has prevented many cases of typhoid fever, dysentery, and intestinal parasites. Cases of cholera among troops in the Philippine Islands have been repeatedly traced to drinking impure water in violation of this order. No deleterious effect of any kind has been attributed to the daily use of distilled or boiled water.”

JAMES BALCH — Dr. James Balch, M.D., from Dietary Wellness 

“THERE IS ONLY ONE WATER, AND THAT IS CLEAN STEAM DISTILLED WATER. No other substance on our planet does so much to keep us healthy and get us well as water does.”

NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE — National Cancer Institute, http://www.cancer.gov/drugdictionary?cdrid=632847 

“Distilled Water: AN ULTRA-PURE FORM OF WATER with potential antineoplastic activity. Derived by boiling impure water and condensing the resultant steam in a sterile container, DISTILLED WATER HAS BEEN SHOWN TO KILL BLADDER CANCER CELLS in vitro through osmotic lysis (cytolysis).”

PAUL BRAGG — Dr. Paul Bragg, N.D. Ph.T., from “The Shocking Truth About Water” 

“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.”

J.G. WEBSTER 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

“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.” 

WAYNE PICKERING — Dr. Wayne Pickering, from “The Distilled Water Myth”

“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 minerals 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 matter 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.”

HERBERT M. SHELTON — Dr. Herbert M. Shelton, N.D., from The Science and Fine Art of Fasting, The Hygienic System: Vol. III 

“A frequent development while fasting is a dislike for water. This is particularly true if the water is “hard”. “HARD WATER” that, while one is eating, tastes pleasant enough, IS REJECTED BY THE SHARPENED SENSE OF TASTE. IN SUCH CASES WE FIND THE USE OF DISTILLED WATER, TO BE SATISFACTORY.”

FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY — Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), http://www.usfa.fema.gov/downloads/pdf/pcm/pcm_r0255.pdf

“THERE ARE MANY MATERIALS THAT ELECTRICITY DOESN’T LIKE TO FLOW THROUGH. Air, for example, is one thing that electricity cannot flow through very easily. Air is an insulator. Other insulators include rubber, glass, ceramics, wood, many plastics and, SURPRISINGLY ENOUGH, DISTILLED WATER.”

CAREY A. REAMS —Dr. Carey A. Reams, from, “Health Guide for Survival” by Salem Kirban

“One of the most important is THE DISTILLED WATER CLEANSING PROGRAM. Although most people don’t realize it, they have a lot of sugar—including white sugar; sugar from honey; and sugar from fruit—packed into their muscles and fatty tissues. It’s packed in there because their sugar metabolism wasn’t functioning properly. Their body neither burned those sugars for energy nor excreted them. Until these stored sugars are FLUSHED OUT OF THE SYSTEM, the body may release them into the blood at any time, disrupting the blood sugar level. The distilled water cleansing program is designed to rid the body of these sugars —THUS CLEARING THE WAY FOR A STABLE BLOOD SUGAR LEVEL.” — Dr. Carey A. Reams, in response to the question, “What else do you do to help the hypoglycemics?” from a 1978 interview with ACRES USA “Drinking distilled water would help alleviate this problem of pectoris heart attack. Extreme fatigue, nervous tension, wrinkles in the forehead …ALL WILL BE ALLEVIATED WITH THE DRINKING OF DISTILLED WATER.”

FRANK N. HEPBURN, USDA —Frank N. Hepburn, Chief, Nutrient Data Research Branch, United States Department of Agriculture, Consumer Nutrition Division, 1977

“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.”

MICHAEL COLGAN — Dr. Michael Colgan, from, “Optimum Sports Nutrition” 

“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 are 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 its 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”.

INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION COMMANDER CHRIS HADFIELD — CommanderChris Hadfield, Colonel Royal Canadian Air Force, Commander International SpaceStation and Canadian Space Agency & National Aeronautics and Space Administration, from the video, “Water Recycling on the International Space Station” 

“Since 2010, we’ve got a system on board that can PURIFY THE WATER in real-time, you don’t have to take it out and store it in bags. We have filters and a KEG-SIZED DISTILLER that spins to create artificial gravity and move the wastewater along.” …keep in mind that the water that we end up with is PURER THAN MOST OF THE WATER THAT YOU DRINK on a daily basis at home,” Hadfield says in the video. “That makes the International Space Station its own self-contained environment. That’s a CRITICAL STEP TOWARDS LIVING FOR LONG PERIODS off of planet Earth.”

RON KENNEDY — Dr. Ron Kennedy, M.D.

“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.”

AMERICAN RED CROSS — American Red Cross

“While the two methods described above will kill most microbes in water, DISTILLATION WILL REMOVE MICROBES (GERMS) THAT RESIST THESE METHODS, as well as heavy metals, salts, and most other chemicals. Distillation involves boiling water and then collecting only the vapor that condenses. THE CONDENSED VAPOR WILL NOT INCLUDE SALT OR MOST OTHER IMPURITIES.”

IAN SHILLINGTON — Dr. Ian Shillington N.D., from, “The Importance of Distilled Water” 

“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 CAN NOT FUNCTION AND SURVIVE WITH DAILY INGESTION OF POISON.”

VARAH SIEDLECKI — from “Why Distilled Water?” by Dr. Varah Siedlecki. DOM, DN, PH.D. 

“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 negatively 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.”

ALEXANDER F. BEDDOE Dr. Alexander F. Beddoe, DDS, Advanced Ideals Institute

“First of all DISTILLED WATER IS A HIGH ENERGY WET WATER. In order for it to end up in 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 (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 affected by the pH of the distilled water because there is no mineral base to react.”

THEODORE A. BAROODY from “Alkalize or Die” by Dr. 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.”

GEORGE CROMACK — Dr. George Cromack, from, “Distilled Water vs. Spring Water”

“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. Rainwater is distilled water also but in a polluted environment may uptake some of the environmental pollutions. 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 atherosclerosis. 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.”

LEE T. ROZELLE AND DR. RONALD L. WATHEN — Dr. Lee T. Rozelle and Dr. RonaldL. Wathen, M.D., from “CONSUMPTION OF LOW TDS WATER” by THE WATER QUALITY ASSOCIATION 

“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 by 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.” “NASA HAS REPORTED NO ILL EFFECTS from the consumption of approximately .05 mg/L TDS water ( .05 Parts Per Million ) onboard spacecraft. IT APPEARS THAT THE POSSIBILITY THAT THIS COULD HAVE BEEN A PROBLEM WAS NEVER SERIOUSLY CONSIDERED BY NASA. 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.”

EDWARD V. OHANIAN — Dr. Edward V.Ohanian, Chief of Human Risk Assessment Branch, United States EnvironmentalProtection Agency, from “CONSUMPTION OF LOW TDS WATER” by THE WATER QUALITY ASSOCIATION

“I am NOT AWARE OF ANY DATA adequate to support the conclusion that water with low levels of minerals is unsafe.”
