The Dangers of Distilled Water

The Dangers of Distilled Water
Distillation is the process in which water is boiled, evaporated and the vapour condensed. Distilled water is free of dissolved minerals and, because of this, has the special property of being able to actively absorb toxic substances from the body and eliminate them. There are benefits to drinking distilled water when seeking to cleanse or detoxify the system for short periods of time (a few weeks) but longer than this can cause the body to become mineral deficient and acidic..
Fasting using distilled water can be dangerous because of the rapid loss of electrolytes (sodium, potassium, chloride) and trace minerals like magnesium, deficiencies of which can cause heart beat irregularities and high blood pressure.
Cooking foods in distilled water pulls the minerals out of them and lowers their nutrient value.
Distilled water is an active absorber and when it comes into contact with air, it absorbs carbon dioxide, making it acidic. The more distilled water a person drinks, the higher the body acidity becomes.
 
Distilled water, being mineral-free, is very aggressive, in that it tends to dissolve substances with which it is in contact. Carbon dioxide from the air is rapidly absorbed, making the water acidic and even more aggressive. Many metals are also dissolved by distilled water.
The most toxic commercial beverages that people consume (cola beverages and other soft drinks) are made from distilled water. Heavy consumers of soft drinks (with or without sugar) expel huge amounts of calcium, magnesium and other trace minerals through the urine.
The more minerals lost, the greater the risk for osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, hypothyroidism, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure and a long list of degenerative diseases generally associated with premature aging.
Aging and disease is the direct result of the accumulation of acid waste products in the body. A poor diet may be partially to blame for the waste accumulation.
Consuming the following can cause the body to become more acidic:
•             meats
•             sugar
•             alcohol
•             fried foods
•             soft drinks
•             processed foods
•             white flour products
•             dairy products
Stress, whether mental or physical can lead to acid deposits in the body.
There is a correlation between the consumption of soft water (distilled water is extremely soft) and the incidence of cardiovascular disease. Cells, tissues and organs do not like to be dipped in acid and will do anything to buffer this acidity including the removal of minerals from the skeleton and the manufacture of bicarbonate in the blood.
The longer one drinks distilled water, the more likely the development of mineral deficiencies and an acid state. People who consume distilled water always eventually develop multiple mineral deficiencies. The ideal water for the human body should be slightly alkaline and this requires the presence of minerals like calcium and magnesium. Bottled mineral water is best.
Distilled water tends to be acidic and can only be recommended as a way of drawing poisons out of the body. Once this is accomplished, the continued drinking of distilled water is not recommended
Water filtered through a solid charcoal filter is slightly alkaline. Ozonation of this charcoal filtered water is ideal for daily drinking. Longevity is associated with the regular consumption of hard water (high in minerals). Disease and early death is more likely to be seen with the long term drinking of distilled water.
