Distilled WaterBy Nina Carrino

In today’s polluted world, distilled water is the purest water available. Since it assists in the elimination of many harmful substances, it has been recommended for detoxification and fasting programs, and for helping clean out the cells, organs and fluids of the body.

Water from public water systems, and even from many wells and springs, is likely to be loaded with poisonous chemicals and toxic trace elements. This water is saturated with lime salts, calcium, magnesium, sodium, iron, copper, silicon, nitrates, chlorides, viruses, bacteria, and many other harmful inorganic minerals and chemicals.

American plumbing systems also contribute to polluted water. Zinc, copper, cadmium, lead and other trace elements are released in excessive quantity by the chemical action of the water in the metals of the water pipes. The Environmental Protection Agency recently reported unsafe levels of lead in American drinking water, accounting for growth retardation and lowering of intelligence in children, blood ailments, and pregnancy problems.

Similarly, according to a recent World Health Organization report, “a substantial proportion of disease outbreaks can be attributed to deficiencies in drinking water disinfections.” Twenty percent of the community water supply systems in this country are having consistent problems meeting the standards for drinking water of the EPA, according to Jack Sullivan, deputy executive director of the American Water Works Assoc. in Washington. It is evidently time to take greater care with the water we drink.

Prevention is the keynote in the decision to use only steam distilled water. In distillation, water is turned into vapor so that all its impurities are left behind. (99% of lead content is removed in the distillation process.) In his book, The Choice is Clear, Dr. Allen E. Banik describes distilled water as the only water which is pure – the only water free from all impurities.”

Distilled water acts as a solvent in the body. It dissolves food substances so they can be assimilated and taken into every cell. It dissolves inorganic mineral substances, acid crystals and all other waste products so that these can be eliminated in the process of purifying the body.

As distilled water enters the body, it picks up mineral deposits accumulated in the joints, artery walls, or wherever such deposits occur, and begins to carry them out. Gallstones and kidney stones decrease until they can safely pass through their ducts. Arthritic pains lessen as joints become more supple and movable.

Distilled water has the inherent characteristics of a magnet which picks up discarded minerals. and with the assistance of the blood and the lymph, transports them to the kidneys for elimination. It is this kind of mineral elimination that is erroneously referred to as leaching; the expression that distilled water leaches minerals from the body is inaccurate. It does not leach out body minerals; it collects and removes inorganic minerals which have been rejected by the cells and tissues, and which if not evacuated can cause arterial obstruction and serious damage.

Odorless, colorless and tasteless, distilled water /contains no solid matter of any kind, no minerals, organic or inorganic, and is made solely of the two gases, hydrogen and oxygen. It can be used as a drinking water, for cooking, for electric irons and batteries, and is so pure it is used for intravenous feeding, inhalation therapy, prescriptions and baby formulas.

Thousands of distillers have been sold throughout the USA and in many foreign countries to individuals, families, doctors, hospitals, nursing homes and government agencies.
