I have been drinking distilled water for about 3 years now. Over this time, my hair has become very thinned out and I am balding. I'm a 28 year old guy and can't believe this is happening. I used to have very thick hair. I already hated myself for many other reasons so this is really killing me inside. I came across an article stating hair loss could be related to long term distilled water usage. What are your thoughts?

OK, ALL DISTILLED WATER, OR JUST MAKING COFFEE WITH IT, DRINKING OTHER DRINKS AS WELL OR JUST DISTILLED WATER ALONE?

MANY A GUY HAS NOTICED HIS COMB FULL OF HAIR BY AGE 30..I ASKED A WOMAN THAT HAS CUT HAIR ALL HER ADULT LIFE ABOUT THIS AND SHE JUST CALLS IT A CYCLE MALES GO THROUGH, SOME EARLIER, SOME LATER...I REMEMBER WHEN MY BATH TUB USE TO HAVE HAIR IN IT EVERYTIME....A BIT SCARY. WHY? IT COULD BE A HORMONE SHIFT, AN ACCUMULATION OF TOXNS OR JUST PLAIN FUNGUS AND OF COURSE, FOR MANY, IT RUNS IN THEIR FAMILY..
I already hated myself for many other reasons so this is really killing me inside.
NOW YOU HAVE SELF-DIAGNOSED AND PROBABLY DISCOVERED THE TRUE REASON. YOU WILL BECOME MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, EXACTLY WHAT YOU FEAR THE MOST....WE OFTEN GET EXACTLY OPPOSITE IN LIFE THAN WHAT WE WISH FOR....
I came across an article stating hair loss could be related to long term distilled water usage. What are your thoughts?
I THINK YOUR ARTICAL IS COMPLETELY STUPID. DRINKING CLEAN WATER PROMOTES HEALTH.
HAIR FALLS OUT MOSTLY FROM HEAVY METAL ACCUMULATIONS THAT ALSO ATTRACKS PARASITES TO EAT THESE METALS.....THE HAIR IS ATTEMPTING TO SAVE A PERSON'S LIFE BY FALLING OUT CONTINUSLY AND WHEN NO MORE GROWS BACK IN, THEN THAT PERSON HAS A VARIETY OF ISSUES WHY AND IT IS ALL SPELLED LIKE THIS:
LOSS OF CIRCULATION..............
ARE YOU LOOSING CIRCULATION DUE TO:
2. HEAVY METALS FROM BAD DRINKS, BAD FOODS?
3. HORMONE ISSUES
5. FATTY HEAD
IT IS THIS SIMPLE;
GRAB YOUR SCALP AND SHAKE IT...IF YOUR GOING BALD YOUR SCALP WILL BE TIGHT AND NOT FLEXABLE.... A CHILD'S SCALP FLOWS ALL OVER THE SKULL, WHILE THE BALD PERSON I A TIGHT SHINY HARD SKIN..
BECAUSE YOU HATE YOUR SELF, BECAUSE YOU CHOOSE TO BLAME PURE WATER AND DID YOU MAKE THIS WATER OR JUST BUY A LITTLE HERE OR THERE??????? BECAUSE OF THE WORDING, I WOULD HAVE TO GUESS THAT YOUR NOT READY TO BE INDEPENDANT AND YOU WILL NEED TO CONSULT A PROFESSIONAL HAIR AND OR MEDICAL PERSON TO HELP GUIDE YOU...BECAUSE IF YOU WERE READY TO BE FREE, THE VERY LAST THING YOU WOULD COMPLAIN ABOUT IS DRINKING CLEAN WATER...
maybe you should explain more the first time?????? and not make your post like you are blaming your water............now with whay bits and pieces you have supplied, your still looking at the same basic problems as epxlained in the first reply...
you now realize 90% of those that do post, always expect the reader to also read their minds..
it's so easy to blame a lifetime of self abuse on an isolated incident! People like Dr Mercola do themself a great disservice pointing fingers and blaming distilled water for his failure to adequately provide nutritional sustenance to his clients! It only shows s how ineffective his entire protocol really is!
Hi 71382, just wondering how many high quality health books you've read? Have you read the Water book or other books that MH recommends?
I distilled water last night. (I clean my distiller every time I use it). I used boiled, filtered water. When it was done, I took the distiller and showed all the yucky scum left on the bottom to one of my nearest and dearest family members. This person, who was previously skeptical, is now really interested in drinking distilled water.
I sense that you have some issues because you stated that you hate yourself and you called MH arrogant (judgmental). Sadly, you sound almost bitter and defeated. Do you have a lot of metals in your system? Dental metals? I don't know what all you're dealing with, but I hope you find healing.
You notice the weirdest post arer always made using a "NUMBER" and in theory, we should just BAN all number post from this forum to weed out the weird ones...If they can't use their nickname they registered with, then they need to stay off this forum with their waste of time post....thatis what we should do...
The dude asked a question and you decided to be an azzhole! You are a joke! After reading some of your comments, only a fool would follow your advice. Distilled water is horrible to the body and you recommend it. Curezone has only a few people who actually know a thing or two about health and disease.
MH, you are not one of them. So quit acting like you are. And for your post about banning posters using numbers instead of a very creative nick name like MH (JOKE) STFU! This makes you look even dumber than any other of the misinformed posts you've made. You're a non-factor! Sadly, some igrorant people who come on this site looking for advice have beeen tricked by your elixirs.
Yes, I do feel defeated and bitter a lot of the time. I too hope I find healing. I once had metal braces and have no metal fillings. That being said, my reaction to MH's response is not an indicator of my level of health. I am simply annoyed by his response to my question. MH was annoyed with my question and reacted in a lot more hostile manner so there's really no difference between me and him.
Hair loss is definitely not related to distilled water. It could be a hormonal thing but its hard to say what exactly is causing it in your case.
I had the same problem as you but I know why my hair fell out cause I pulled it out. I took ritalin in high school and early college and it made me do some strange things. After I got out of the shower I would rub the hell out of my hair to dry it. I noticed a little hair would fall each day. When I studied I had the habit of running my fingers through my hair and I noticed hair would fall out on my desk. Also when I played with my dog on the floor she would put her paw on my hair and then as I pulled my head up it would take a good chunk of hair with it. As a result of all these things I am missing a good chunk of hair on my front forehead (but I have no bald spot).
But since I started drinking store bought distilled water and used spray 2 and 3 on my head and changed to more raw foods and fruits my hair has infact started to grow back as I have peach fuzz on the front of my head now. I'm excitied and plan to order another 8oz bottle of the top knot spray and do a longer (40 day) fast to see if I can grow back my hair more. If I was drinking store bought (not the best) distilled water and my hair grew back - even slightly - then it can't be distilled water that caused your baldness. Since then my family has bought a nice distiller and we distill it at home.
I'm sure theres a way to grow your hair back if you are really interested. I've heard MH mention other folks who did a OJ fast and their hair grew back!
My experience is that we all have to start somewhere building upon truth and educating ourselves after we have been influenced by the medical community all our lives. We have been taught to be dependent. My learning independence and taking responsibility for my own health came in stages. Personally, I give anyone credit for starting to be interested in their health and asking questions. There are no stupid questions. The only stupid questions are the ones that are not asked. If someone asks me questions about what I have learned in natural healing, I consider it a privilege to share what I know. I have so much to learn. I hope to be learning until I die. Humility to me says I have much to learn.
I hope this gives those questioning people courage to keep on searching and looking for the answers that get them well that only come from natural medicine.
BUT, there are always weird people hiding behind enonomous numbers/no names who often never want to ask a real question; but only wish to complain or seek to harm others that actually are searching out real methods and stumble upon the trouble makers putting out bad info.
There has been no argument about distilled water for over 150 years...medical knows it is the best source of pure water for human consumption. There are plenty of good water books to read in dept about the subject.
It is a FACT:
ALL authors, all doctors and all those that post bad comments about the use of pure home made distilled water; only show their ignorance of the subject and their ignorance of human health and distilled water is a dead subject on this forum.
THere aren't many people who have been reading here long enought to know how many times that question has been asked, but you a forum owner can't expect someone to read the entire history of this forum before they post either.
It does take a lot of reading to understand even the basics of natural medicine. Lots and lots of study and reading. If one is to get themselves healthy again, they need to become acquainted with their own body, what condition it is in at the time, and know where to start helping it to get better. They need to know what they've been doing wrong in times past so they can correct their life style and work towards health again. There's a lot to learn. Many things that, if we had had the privilege of learning or knew existed would have learned and put into practice many years ago.
I was in the "terminal" beacket when I came on CZ. I read for 3 weeks almost 24/7 to begin to understand the many protocols and things that would get me healthy again. I know, too, most people are not willing to do much reading. Reading the back posts on many of the forums is highly recommended. Good health demands a high level of personal responsibility to get well and to stay that way.
I've also been working with people helping them to get healthy again all the while learning new things for myself. Health is: health in the mind, in the body and in the attitude in that we have something here to share with the world. We have something that will change the world for the better. Let's make IT attractive and OURSELVES attractive by showing kindness and consideration for each other as an individual as we share our knowledge with each other and with the world. I find joy in sharing anything I have learned and helping another person get better. The gift of health one person either gives to themselves or helps another person understand is a very precious gift.
Knowledge of the truth in healing and different healing modalities sets us apart and above the rest of the world that does the medical. We have earned respect. I want to be worthy of that respect because I truly care for another and not just because I want to tell them they aren't doing "it" right just yet. Probably I'm not doing it all correctly just yet, but my mind is open and my attitude is in the place of learning and improving myself and compassionately helping others to learn all the while encouraging them to be personally responsible for their own health. A person who is sick can't think very well. It's a different story when the fog lifts and they start to get better.
Not on the subject of distilled water and thinning hair, but very pertinent in order for that person to find the answers.
To be far there is a search function on this forum and just doing a fast search i found MH talking about this same subject. And one must remember things such as tone do not carry over on to internet forums. One person will read one post and think it is very negative and pissed off and another will read the same post and think it is kind and helpful.
I see a lot of angry posts here and all this guy did was ask a simple question ! Some people just need to alkalize more .
To the original pester : I got one word for you , Stinging Nettles , it's a blessing for Hair problems .
Do not buy dead herbs from anybody , get your own stinging Nettles root and leaves , brew concotions , make teas or soup or whatever with them and you'll see results pretty fast .Stinging Nettle will reverse white hair in a year , the old Herbalists thought so , out of experience . Come April , find a patch of Fresh , new Stinging nettles and eat them fresh as a salad , a lot of it .
And remember : Do not trust anybody , especially the health gurus out there !
The only incorruptible teacher is Nature ! Follow it ...
every woods, meadow, even fence rows, etc...should have some variety of stinging nettles...
the woods nettles grows about waste high; while other varieties may grow taller...when they are in bloom, you can smell them as you get near to them.
their roots are very orange in color; those into colors suggest the roots are loaded with iron, etc...i recentlyy dug up some and noticed they do swamp out the other weeds and take over an area...
nettles is one of the few herbs that can be used as a food, for clothing and as a medicine.
i don't think it is as complicated as many make it out to be; it simply is reflecting our health and those that are bald by age 18? well, you can thank your past family members, yet you can decide to break those chains and clean up your body and as you restore your circulation, yo may grow some new hair....
it is a fact:
burn your skin off, down to the meat and bones and if you treat it properly...first the blood vessels crawl around and reconnect, then the tendons, flesh, skin and new hair...
since the body can grow new flesh and bones along with hair when damaged; i see no reason why it can't when it has not been damaged by an accident...the treatment is the same, weed and feed.
ignore all the post that the pest make...as long as they don't cross the line, their pesky post will stand as a reminder; but if they get too nasty, they simply get blocked and erased...
don't blame pure water for our health problems, try blaming the hundreds of bad habits we humans do.
Oh, I had my hair and I Heavy this tests dozens of products with no results, until I found a truly "miraculous" if I may call it so. I said to try it after I heard it's really good. Soon gave unexpected results, and the hair is in place very soon.
