People claim that distilled water leaches vital minerals and nutrients from their bodies, minerals and nutrients that are vital for their health. The truth is that any organic mineral you eat or drink are immediately broken down and used by the cells of your body.
It is not possible for distilled water to remove those minerals from the cells as they are well on their way to building more healthy cells. However inorganic minerals you eat and drink cannot be broken down and used by the cells of your body.
The best way to get organic minerals into your body and cells is to juice fruits and vegetables, they contain all the minerals, nutrients and trace elements the body needs.
Wrong, distilled water will not leach vital minerals and nutrients from their bodies.
Dr. Allen Banik says…
“Distilled water is the greatest solvent on earth. (It is) the only water that can be taken into the body without damage to the tissues.
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.
Today, many progressive doctors prescribe distilled water to their patients. All kidney machines operate on distilled water.” – Allen E. Banik, M.D. Author, “The Choice is Clear”
Dr. Paul Bragg says…
“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. Dr. Paul Bragg, N.D. Ph.T., from his book: “The Shocking Truth About Water”
James Balch says…
“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.”
Dr. Teofilio de la Torre says…
“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.”
Dr. Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone, recognized the health value of distilled water, and claimed that its daily use prolonged his life. Afflicted and bed-ridden with sciatica, Dr. Bell could find no relief for the pain. The attack came just as he was investigating the deposit of salts in the human system. A well-known scientist had written a book in which he said that old age came from such deposits, and that the ills of advanced years were due to the lack of their elimination. He believed that when such deposits went to the joints, man had rheumatism. When they went to the kidneys, he had kidney trouble and stones in the urinary organs; and when they lodged in the arteries, they produced what is called hardening of the arteries. In the same way when such deposits coated the nerves, they caused sciatica. Dr. Bell wrote: “I knew that distilled water was pure. I thought that if I drank plenty of it, I could get rid of some of the salts that were covering my sciatic nerves. I tried drinking it and it worked like a charm. I have kept up my drinking of distilled water and I attribute my almost perfect health largely to it.”

“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.” —David C. Kennedy, D.D.S.:
