"WHY" do some folks get all Bent out of shape when the ideas they hold dear to themself (usually not fully informed ideas at that) may be brought into question?
Some want to debate about water as to if one should drink distilled water or Minerals water or what ever kind of water they like in their minds, without knowing "WHY" one may be Better than the other under Different conditions??
Let us examine this issue and see if we may make some Common Sense understanding out of the whole idea ?
Distilled water: It is supposed to be water that has been cleaned of everything from minerals to toxic poisons including pesticides and herbicides ?
This may be true if it has also been run thru a carbon filter ?
Now the question we may need to ask is where in Nature would a person get Distilled water ?
In todays society it may be very hard to do so ?
But, before mankind messed up our environment, one may have gotten something very close to distilled water from the rain ?
So, if one collected rain water in a wooden bucket one may have gotten water close to distilled and clean water years ago before mankind Polluted the environment ?
What are the advantages of Distilled water: Distilled water has the ability to hold additional minerals etc !
Distilled water also may be able to help the body remove waste and Toxins, if one is attempting to do so ?
But, should one drink distilled water all the time ?
This may depend upon what we are trying to accomplish !
For, by drinking distilled water may pull more out of the body, when it is in a weaken state from lack of needed Alkaline Minerals ?
So, in the case when one may be trying to add extra Alkaline Minerals to ones Diet to build ones Alkaline Mineral reserves, it may be a good idea to use distilled water to make a stock solution of Lime water and then use this with the alkalizing drink to provide more Alkaline Minerals into ones body ?
But, good clean water with a pinch of Epsom Salt used the rest of the time may work very well in helping one recover from most any Sickness and Disease ?
Now, let us look at the use of Mineral water in Nature under Natural conditions before mankind messed up our environment !
Many folks would get their water from springs and such, which would be a Mineral water and this was just the way it was and those ole timers who used clean spring water never had the Sickness and Diseases as we do today !
Of course they also ate foods grown in season, which were not polluted as the foods we have to eat today !
So, which is Better ?
Distilled water or Mineral water ?
That may depend upon what one was trying to accomplish and what the mineral water had in it ?
I suggest using distilled water to make the stock solution of Lime water, because the distilled water will hold more Calcium than Mineral water that is already full, but just using good clean water for the rest of ones needs !
I myself would prefer a good clean un-polluted spring water or water from a Limestone formation if it was available, for normal drinking water, but that is not always easy to find in todays time ?
And most of todays bottled water is a joke, for profit !
Smile Tis your choice.
