Distilled water is the best water we could ever drink. It only removes inorganic minerals and toxins, not the minerals our bodies need. The minerals we need come from real food. We have been told many lies. I'm really disappointed to see earth clinic telling people to not drink distilled water. I have been researching for a long time, and the benefits are never-ending. I do take shilajit for trace minerals 4 days a week. The rest comes from food. There is a difference between organic and inorganic minerals. One favorite website is But there are many more as well.

I have been drinking distilled water since 1981. I am the healthiest person I know. I am also a vegetarian since then as well. Perhaps it works differently for different people. BTW, for those who might be curious, I have Scorpio rising and it is the strongest sign in the zodiac. That certainly doesn't hurt.

So what now? What are we to do with all the contradictory information we have been reading and receiving over the years? It has been all over the map.

Will the jury ever come to a decision?

As far as I am concerned, EarthClinic dot com has become one of the most reliable sources of info in the matter of efficient natural remedies.

I know it is asking a lot, but could an authority figure here, such as Ted who I hope is rapidly regaining in health, help us cut this gordian knot?

Thank you in advance and wishing the best to all.

Thank you very much for your reply.

I'm thinking about the laws of nature on this subject. Nature works with distilled water, sun..clouds...rain. This was the reason for me to switch to drinking distilled water.

Pure clean water coming down to earth, seems to be the best thing to drink.

Got very confused by all the different views about this topic, and your answer is worth gold. Thank you for sharing it!

Have been drinking only distilled water for a year and my energy level is rising!!

Greeting Aniek

Unfortunately you are wrong about distilled water. Minerals such as sodium magnesium and potassium (Na Mg and Ka) are elements from the periodic table and are known as minerals and are needed by living beings to survive. Many people have died from excessive hydration and distilled is the worst. Water cannot differentiate between what we need and what we dont need.

The healthiest water comes from springs known for their healing powers since antiquity. Mineral waters such as Henniez, San Pellegrino, Evian etc.

The effect of too much magnesium is diarrhea (I'm speaking from experience here. I was having frequent Epsom salt baths and wrongly thought my body would only absorb what it needed.)

I had this result..after which time I cut back the frequency and concentration to return to a normal balance.

If you get to that point just cut back on quantity or frequency.

She's not wrong, look into the difference between organic and inorganic minerals. If you knew it would destroy your argument which just rephrased the article. Your body can't absorb inorganic minerals that they add to water or come from water naturally, only those from food. People need to realize they've been trying to give us all cancer from the beginning, I mean there's pesticides in water and they ADD fluoride. It's in “baby water” at Walmart. Drink the equivalent of rain water like the natives.

DENISE,,,,,,,,,, almost all are delinquent of magnesium. Due to my bowels I take Magnesium L-Threonate, a compound devised by MIT folks.

Hello Robert, (update below)

This was such a good read for me. I am going to try the mineral baths if I can do that at home. I will look for answers on what to use in the water (minerals right, lol) but I so wish we had a place like you spoke of Robert. thank you so much for sharing your info.

I looked around the internet for how to make a mineral bath, and saw Epsom Salt. I also saw something on Magnesium Chloride being the best and most absorbable. Would you recommend a spray for me? There are so many online I am not sure, and some are spendy of course, so I want to get as close to a good one as I can? And what about to bathe in? Epsom Salt or whatever you and your wife use? I would so appreciate the help deciding, Denise

11/18 - I ordered the Flakes instead of crystals, and didn't notice until after the fact. I see in your list it says crystals. Hope this won't make a dif. Also, I did find another brand of the spray where I could get twice as much for the dollars, so I ordered that after reading the label. The Flakes are Ancient Minerals brand. So using half Epsom Salt must work fine even though it's the sulfate type. Or maybe it is because we wouldn't want too much of the magnesium absorbing at once? Anyway, I am very anxious to try it. The Flakes are arriving on Tuesday, and I'll pick up the Epsom Salt at Walmart, probably same day. ty again

Hello Jay, I will be careful and had planned to do maybe 2 baths a week. I so appreciate you sharing your experience. Denise

>> Water cannot differentiate between what we need and what we don't need.

Ah, perhaps true. But water does not have a living Spirit within it. We humans all have an Ego, with intelligence, and it does things that science has yet to appreciate or replicate. So if you want to ignore the spiritual side of things, fine - you will be missing out on the other side of the coin, to your detriment. There is much more to life and every process than just what the materialists think and believe. Occult scientists know this is absolutely true.

Thank you so much, I saw that brand I'm sure so I will go look for it again! Also, the chloride crystals. I can't wait to try the spray, but the baths are going to be wonderful too! I just have one other question which I could probably google, but I like the feedback/info I get on EC the best. I now ingest my magnesium glycinate 2 x 200 mg and my Magnesium Citrate 2 x 100 mg so 600mg per day with no ill effects. I don't know how much more I will absorb by doing the bathes and spray so I just don't want to overdue, what do you think? thank you again.
