You've heard the old cliche that one store's products are better than the others. We do not try any tricks to convince you, we are providing facts how these distillers can actually better your health. Just read the few articles below to get a better idea of just what we are talking about. You will be very surprised at the real danger that you face every day by consuming contaminated water. The water you consume - drinking and cooking, is your life support. Optimal health and pure water go hand in hand.
Distilled water has been a water purity standard in analytical labs, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and may other industries for many years and more recently a gold standard for drinking.
Distillation duplicates nature’s hydrologic cycle. The sun’s heat vaporizes the water and draws it from the earth’s surface into the atmosphere. The impurities remain. As the vapor cools, it falls back to the earth as rain, snow, and other precipitation. As it leaves the clouds, the precipitation is pure but as it makes is descent to the earth it picks up the various forms of pollution found in the air. Then, as it reaches the ground, the water continues to pick-up contaminants on its way back to the various bodies of water on the earth. In mechanized distillation, water is boiled in a distiller, which creates steam that rises and leaves virtually all contaminants behind in the boiling chamber. Steam is then collected and condensed into pure, clean distilled water leaving the impurities behind to eventually flush down the drain. Because of the heat involved in the process of creating steam, all forms of bacteria and all water borne diseases are destroyed.
Distilled water is the only form of water, which is free from all contaminants and impurities. Distilled water is the only clean water. Virtually everything is removed from the water by steam distillation. That’s about as clean as you can get.

Do I need to tell you why drinking plenty of good quality water is as essential to health as eating properly? In a nutshell: one of the main activities of the body's self-healing system is filtration of the blood, a job performed mostly by the kidneys which a little help from the mechanism of perspiration.
Kidneys are such efficient, compact and miraculous filters that they put to shame the dialysis machines used the maintain the patients with renal failure. The heart, blood, and kidneys are a single functional unit the constantly cleanses and purifies itself, removing all the toxic wastes of metabolism and the breakdown products of harmful substances that get onto our bodies one way or another. This purification system can operate efficiently only if the volume of water flowing through it is sufficient to carry away the waste. Further, as good quality steam distilled water enters the body, it has the ability to pick-up mineral deposits accumulated in cells, joints, artery walls, or wherever such deposits occur and begin to carry them out.
Gallstones and kidney stores then decrease, and it also lessens arthritic pain as joints become more supple and movable.

Most people get their water from the household tap. This water originates from lakes, rivers, streams, and underground sources. The majority of water goes through a system of cleaning at the local water treatment plant. However, because of a lack of funds to provide the necessary technology, many harmful pollutants and water borne diseases are present in the finished treated water. In 1979, the U.S. EPA declared that up to 20% of all deaths in America are caused by pollutants and environmental hazards.

Our tap water is treated only to minimum standards, by sedimentation, filtration, chemical conditioning and disinfection with chlorine. The toxic metals, pesticides, industrial chemical... the 50 or so chemicals used in the water treatment are present in the already treated water, along with the dead bacteria killed by the chlorine, as are the carcinogenic Trihalomethanes from the chlorine itself, that are known to cause liver and corectal cancers.

According to the scientists from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI), it has been estimated that between 60 to 80 percent of all cancer is caused by the chemicals in the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the water we drink. Cancer will afflict one out of every four people. The NCI expressed concern over 20 years ago that increase in carcinogens in water and our inability to remove them at the treatment plants could result in serious exposure of the general population.
Bacteria, viruses, synthetic compounds, metals, and radio nuclides are the contaminants that become incorporated into our drinking water, and have the potential to cause health effects ranging from low grade sub-clinical illnesses such as colds and flu to death from cancer.
Canadian Nutrition Guide.
There are more than 60,000 chemical contaminants in water. Any municipal water supply is likely to have at least a thousand of these. Water authorities do what they can, but it is too great an expense to ensure our tap water is healthy enough for us to drink.
Fifty percent of the US population uses water that in part is made up of recently discharged waste water. And like the treatments for drinking water, waste water treatments do not remove many of the toxic substances.
The contamination is beyond help. More than 55,000 of the regulated chemical dumps across the nation are leaking into the ground water.

With all this in mind, you need to know that distilled water is an excellent source of water.
There are two forms of minerals, organic and inorganic. Inorganic minerals refers to non-vegetable or non-animal matter, i.e. not living. This included carbonate and lime compounds, calcium, iron and magnesium. Because these components are non-living, our bodies can no make use of these minerals and our cells reject them. The result of ingesting these minerals is an accumulation of debris in our bodies. Organic minerals on the other hand have gone through a digestive system, and are found in vegetables, fruit, seeds, grains, meats, and nuts which form our daily diet. These are easily assimilated by our cells and are essential for good health. If your rely on water as a source of your required minerals, you are sadly lacking. The minerals in water are inorganic, and the body cannot make use of them. The body continually assimilates the much needed minerals from the food we eat.
Does distilled water rob the body of essential minerals?
No, this is physiologically impossible. Some have been lead to believe that because distilled water is so pure, it will leach healthy minerals and trace elements from the body. Distilled water will do this with pipes. In our bodies distilled water cleans out our impurities and replenishes the essential nutrient required for human life; pure, clean, healthy water. Our cells use the organic minerals for body growth and maintenance; however, the impurities that the body cannot make us of are flushed out with distilled water. Distilled water flushes out all the inorganic minerals and pollutants which would otherwise be retained in the body and accumulate in vital organs such as liver, kidneys, intestines and fatty tissue. These minerals and pollutants are gradually increased by drinking impure water. A continuous or prolonged exposure to these minerals and pollutants may cause carcinogens to form within tissues. The cancer may only manifest itself months, years or even decades after such contacts have ceased. And often the causative agents may have totally disappeared from the tissues.
It has become apparent that pollution and contamination exist within our drinking water. With the amount of sewage dumped into drinking water sources, many water borne diseases are present in the so-called “treated” drinking water. This leaves our bodies wide open to diseases.
The viruses of major concern in relation to drinking water are those of intestinal origin, excreted by infected animals or humans, which reach water resources by way of the soils unlimited potential for serious disease and contamination of the human body.
Don’t take unnecessary risks, Drink Healthy, Drink Distilled. To be Sure, several drinks of local tap water will not kill you, but common sense will tell you that your body cannot function and survive with daily ingestion of poison.
...the water we drink does not merely pass through the body...
The quality of your tissues, their performance, and their resistance to injury is absolutely dependent on the quality and quantity of the water you drink. Even your bones consist of one quarter water. Your muscles are 75% water, your brain is 76% water, blood 82% water and your lungs 90%. These basic facts of biochemistry emphasize the first nutrient and the most essential nutrient, plain simple water.
But and it’s a big but, it needs to be clean, pure, and free of contaminates. In our modern world, a good choice of pure, clean water is steam-distilled water. Since almost 75% of our body is composed of water it needs at least 8 - 10 glasses per day to replenish water lost through excretion and perspiration. Blood is known as the fluid of life. Water is also known as the fluid of life. Pure water makes purer blood, and healthier blood.
Water controls the body’s temperature, provides essential nutrition by transporting nutritive elements from the food we eat to our cells, carries away waste products, and is the medium in which all intracellular changes occur, Good health requires good water. Tap water will not kill you in short term consumption, but your body can not function to its full potential with daily ingestion of poisons from drinking contaminated water. The water we drink does not merely pass through the body. After it is absorbed, it circulates through the veins and arteries performing countless functions necessary for life.
...drinking good pure water retards disease and promotes good health...
Clean water is the single most important substance we consume, only oxygen is more essential for human life. If you were to purify the 6500 gallons of water consumed in your lifetime, you would collect 420 glasses of solids.
These solids settle in our tissues, joints, artery walls, deprive nerve centers, and seal every cell from the oxygen it needs. Over time from consumption of impure water, these mineral deposits become overly thick and cause untold damage to the human body.
Recovery from ill health is boosted ten fold when one drinks only steam distilled water. Don’t play the deadly game of wait and see, start your body on the road to recovery and proper health, insist on drinking only steam-distilled water. Your body will thank you, and so will your family.
