Distilled Water & Health- Amazon/Kindle "Best Seller"


  •  This book will expose the myths and falsehoods while revealing the truths about water quality and its relationship to health and longevity.  

Think of what you need to merely survive. Food? Water? Air? Cell phones? Obviously, by the book's title, I'm going to concentrate on water. Water is of major importance to all living things; in some organisms, up to 90% of their body weight comes from water. Up to 60-70% of the human body is water, the brain is composed of over 70-72% water, and the lungs nearly 90%. Lean muscle tissue contains about 75% water by weight, as is the brain; body fat contains 10-12% water and bone has 20-22% water. About 83% of our blood is water, which helps digest our food, transport waste, and control body temperature. Each day humans must replace 2.5 to 3 qt. of water lost through the excretory system, with most of it replaced through drinking, and the rest from our foods. What do you drink to replace it? Learn how you can be healthier than you are now by drinking distilled water!

I'm impressed with the amount of knowledge this man has about water and its relationship to the body's metabolism, and water related to health in general. Clearly, I gained more knowledge in these areas in a three hr. seminar than I did in 9 years of medical school. Well done, Douglas. I'm thankful you took the time to share.

  For reasons I don’t understand, any number of myths – some quite extreme – have grown up over the years about distilled water. A quick Internet search today will take you to sites that put forth such views as “distilled water leads to early death.” Nonsense! One claim holds that distillation removes all of water’s beneficial minerals. While it’s true that distillation removes minerals as well as various contaminants from water, we don’t know that the human body can readily absorb minerals from water. We get our minerals from food, not water. By one manufacturer’s estimate, you would have to drink 676 eight-ounce glasses of tap water to reach the RDA for calcium alone! Your question as to whether distilled water leaches minerals out of the body reflects another persistent myth. While pure water helps to remove minerals from the body that cells have eliminated or not used, it does not “leach” out minerals that have become part of your body’s cell structure. As far as acidity goes, distilled water is very close to a neutral pH and has no effect on the body’s acid/base balance whatsoever.

  “Water hardness (inorganic minerals in solution) is the underlying cause of many, if not all, of the diseases resulting from poisons in the intestinal tract. These (hard minerals) pass from the intestinal walls and get into the lymphatic system, which delivers all of its products to the blood, which in turn, distributes to all parts of the body. This is the cause of much human disease.”  For that reason alone we recommend distilled water to all of our patients at the clinic.—Dr. Charles Mayo, MD.
