I read the posts about drinking water.
I need to avoid fluoride and all the other contaminates in our public drinking water. I am very sick and unable to take care of my basic needs so I need the easiest and most affordable solution. I trust this site, Ted and Bill and I also trust Dr. Weil. So it is confusing to me when their advice contradicts one another. Dr. Weil drinks "distilled water" and distilled is the easiest for me. I even added T*** Mineral Drops to it.
Distilled water is the easiest for me.
I don't like drinking water from plastic jugs no matter what kind of water it is. I used to get home delivery of distilled water but I can't find home delivery of glass bottles. Spring water is impossible to trust even ones saying they come from a spring - because when I do further research it says it comes from a Municipal Water Company.
I used to work in retail and I've seen those pallets of gallon filled jugs sit out in the hot summer sun. You never know when the plastic is going to leach into your water.
I bought a home distiller but even some of its parts are plastic. I spent a lot of money on it but the water it makes smells moldy so I don't use it. The home made distillers I find on youtube all use rubbermaid plastic containers or worse.
Water is so important to our health. I know this thread already exists here on this website. I hope to continue the conversation so that I can make 1 comprehensive list for us all that would include the costs, level of difficulty and pros and cons while also addressing conflicting research such as "distilled water leaches minerals fact or fiction?".
Dr. Weil drinks distilled water.
Ted's Borax/H20 baths help me immensely but then again, I'm bathing in tap water!! I don't have the money to filter my bathroom as well.
This is my first post and I would appreciate any feedback.
IF YOU WANT TO SUPPORT THIS SITE PLEASE BUY TED'S AND BILL'S BOOKS THRU THIS WEBSITE OR AMAZON. I BOUGHT ALL 3!! WE ASK FOR MORE INFORMATION EVERY DAY ON THIS SITE. THEY PUT SO MUCH TIME INTO WRITING A BOOK - THE LEAST WE CAN DO IS SHOW OUR APPRECIATION
(and post reviews of their books too! )
It was said earlier that adding sea salt to distilled water helps to absorb medicine better. But if you add sea salt to distilled water, isn't that like drinking ocean water? And everyone knows you can't drink ocean water.
I was reading about your distilled water for detoxing for two days only. I am using a marine calcium and mineral supplement and was told to add it to distilled water or reverse osmosis water to get better results in raising the ph to 10.5, because I am adding this supplement to the distilled water would you still say that distilled water is not good to drink for more than two days?. One serving size is 4.3 grams to 1/2 gallon of distilled water and sip on it throughout the day. I did notice great results in my blood under a dark field microscope in just a few weeks of using this product. Before I used this product my red blood cells were clotted together and were very stringy then after three weeks of dringking this product my red blood cells were perfectly round with white rings and nucleous in the center. So is the distilled water a bad thing to use long term??? thanks in advance for your feedback....
Distilled water / Detoxification
I feel compelled to comment on Ted's assertion that distilled water should only be taken for 1-2 days for the need of detoxifying heavy metals.
If someone is found to be seriously contaminated with mercury or other heavy metals, the detoxification process can take several months and even up to 2 years. In some cases is must be done very, very slowly in order to keep the side effects to a minimum. I'm not sure about distilled water, but detoxification takes much longer than 2 days.
Dr. Andrew Cutler has studied this for over 10 years, helping people recover from autism, CFS, fibromyalgia, and even misdiagnosed multiple sclerosis using his specific detailed protocol. A google search will turn up more information.
I have been using thiosulfate to de-chlorinate our tap water whenever we run out of distilled water. But I've just realized that table salt is sodium chloride. When I put thiosulfate in the water to make soup, and then add salt and thiosulfate, does it bind the chlorine from the salt? And if it does, is this freed sodium something to worry about. Thanks
