Why does water (H2O), which is the second simplest element after oxygen (O), seem too complicated for some doctors to understand? Water is not only the second simplest element, but it is also the most important next to oxygen for our survival, or for the survival of the Earth. All living things require water to survive and without a continuous supply, the average human will perish within a few days.
poisoning of america
Our body needs water to produce blood, lymph, digestive juices, lubricants, bile, extracellular fluid, and cytoplasm, the fluid within the plasma membrane. It is common knowledge that most municipal and private water supplies are severely contaminated with everything from:
- trihalomethanes- 1. chloroform 2. bromoform 3. fluoroform 4. iodoform 5. chlorodibromo-
- methane 6. dichlorobromomethane 7. chlorodifluoromethane (carcinogens)
- Heavy metal
- including jet fuel and pharmaceuticals
Considering the fact that since the government established a “priority pollutant list” of 126 known cancer-causing chemicals, more than 1,000 chemicals have been introduced into our environment annually for the past 50 years. And there are no set guidelines for what are considered safe levels in drinking water for any of these, some of which can be found in every water supply in the United States, including:
- river currents
- municipal water supplies
As a result of this alarming condition of America’s drinking water supplies, the bottled water industry has become a $15 billion profit center, including bottled water, sports drinks, and another $7 billion in equipment sales. water purification, such as reverse osmosis (RO) distillation. , filtration, plus the current fashion for ionizers that produce alkaline water.
Regardless of the process or the technology behind it, the main goal of these devices is to produce the cleanest, purest, healthiest water possible. The most widely used method of cleaning tap water is the carbon block filter which removes bad tastes, odors, chlorine, nitrates and many chemicals from the water. In fact, it is the most economical form of water treatment available; however, it comes with several serious drawbacks.
- It does not remove all chemicals present;
- Chemicals can build up in the filter in dangerous concentrations that end up in your body if you don’t change the filter regularly;
- a carbon filter is a breeding ground for bacteria and germs;
- The filter can develop a water channel that takes a path of least resistance, therefore unfiltered water can pass directly through the filter without obstruction.
The second most popular and effective filter system is reverse osmosis. The RO process involves a special membrane that most contaminants cannot pass through, plus pre-filtration and post-filtration to ensure 99% of contaminants are removed.
The most effective process for removing everything from the water, including bacteria and cysts, is steam distillation in conjunction with a carbon post-filter to trap residual volatile gases escaping with the steam. Because distilled water is pure, clean H2O and has a pH of 7 (neutral on the pH scale of 1 to 14, one being acidic and 14 being alkaline), it is used in scientific and medical laboratories and research facilities, including biology and chemistry laboratories because of its pure neutral qualities.
organic vs. inorganic minerals
Unlike reverse osmosis and distillation, filtration and ionizers do not remove hardness or inorganic minerals from water. According to Dr. Charles Mayo of the Mayo Clinic and the American Medical Association, Harvard Medical School, and many medical and nutrition experts have determined that very few of the minerals found in water are inorganic. They cannot be easily chelated or absorbed by our cells or tissues and as a consequence contribute to many ailments and diseases related to the intestinal tract. They also contribute to kidney stones, gallstones, hardening of the arteries, and plaque buildup in the colon.
Dr. Charles Mayo said: “Water hardness is the underlying cause of many, if not all, diseases that result from poisons in the intestinal tract. These [hard, nonchelated] the minerals pass from the intestinal walls and reach the lymphatic system, which delivers all its products to the blood. These, in turn, are distributed to all parts of the body. This is the cause of many human diseases.”
Since ionizers and filters are ineffective at removing minerals from water (including chemicals and other toxins), advocates, manufacturers, and sales associates disparage the use of reverse osmosis and distillation. Proponents of alkaline “miracle water” teach the fallacy that the minerals in water are actually beneficial to our health. They”warn“let RO and distillation remove these”valuable” minerals. They also go so far as to say that because reverse osmosis and distilled water are so pure, they will leach good minerals out of your body, depleting your supply. Alkaline water promoters even say that distilled water is acidic, not neutral (pH of 7) which causes it to dissolve and extract even more minerals from the body.
The alkaline water industry is now extremely profitable and has become so by making false medical claims that the water can cure a myriad of diseases and prevent many others. To claim that alkaline water is superior to any other purified water, they must find fault with the two purest and healthiest water purification processes available. The main reason for the popularity of the alkaline water machine is due to the exorbitant profits and the fact that it is sold through multi-level marketing (MLM) with each machine retailing for between $2,000 and $5,000.
Trading truth and integrity for profit
There are doctors touting MLM whole house, shower or sink water filters, leading them to state that “drinking pure, clean, healthy distilled water will lead to an early death.” This is not only a false claim, but would cause anyone with common sense to question the scientific knowledge and medical judgment and the reliability of these doctors or any other “nutrition expert.” Unfortunately, when you google his misstatement, “Early death comes from drinking distilled water,” you’ll find 227,000 results from other ignorant people, many of whom are healthcare providers, citing his lies.
The next time you hear someone complain:
- that the minerals found in the water are totally beneficial for the health of our body;
- that distilled water is acid;
- that distilled water will filter valuable minerals and nutrients from your body; gold
- that “an early death will come from drinking distilled water”;
… ask them, if these claims were true, why would the government allow tens of thousands of Navy sailors to continuously drink the distilled water found on every Navy ship for more than five decades? Why would the Mayo Clinic and many other hospitals, medical centers, and clinics recommend distilled water to their patients?
“America’s Doctor” – One you can trust
Dr. Andrew Weil MD, has been featured on USA Today, Oprah, Larry King, Good Morning America, Newsweek cover (4 times), has two medical degrees from Harvard, and is the founder and director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine. He was nominated for Newsweek magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” list. Dr. Weil states that “the minerals our bodies need come from our food, not our water, and the pH of the food or water does not have an effect on the pH of the body. Alkaline water machines and their product , alkaline water, are “fake” Don’t buy one or alkaline water, save your money.
Our body, not food or water, regulates the pH of the blood.
Whether you are drinking distilled water with a pH of seven or orange juice with a pH of 5.5 or alkaline water with a pH of 8.0, when they reach the stomach their pH changes to the pH that the body requires. If we were to drink something extremely acidic, the duodenum will neutralize the acid; and if it is extremely alkaline, the stomach will produce additional acid to neutralize it.
The distillation process involves turning water into steam, leaving all contaminants behind, then capturing the steam, cooling it, and turning it back into a contaminant-free liquid. This is how mother nature has been purifying water since this planet was created. The hydrological cycle is the process by which water is heated by the sun, evaporates and accumulates in the atmosphere in the form of clouds, cools, condenses and falls back to earth as pure (distilled) water free of contaminants that They stayed on the earth’s surface. surface.
The Land of Hunza (Burusho or Hunzakuts)
The Hunza people living in the Himalayan mountains have been known to live for over 100 years with little to no disease and extremely healthy, vibrant and strong. It has been determined that, in addition to eating homegrown fruits and vegetables and hormone-free meat, your main source of drinking water is melted glacier water (distilled water). These glaciers were formed thousands of years ago before the atmosphere was polluted, as a result of pure rain and snow (distilled water).
Conclusion: Simon’s simple science lesson on water 101
Water: H2O (Two hydrogen molecules and one oxygen molecule joined together) The formula for water is H2O plus nothing! Nothing means zero amounts of something.
Add carbon dioxide (CO2) to H2O (water) and you have H2O + CO2 or carbonic acid H2CO3.
Add sodium hydrogen carbonate (NaHCO3) to H2O (water) = NaHCO3 or alkaline water.
The best water to drink is the cleanest and purest water that is H2O + Nothing = Distilled water.
The proof of The Pudding is in The Eating
The author of this article has been drinking one to 1-1/2 gallons of distilled water daily for over 40 years, in addition to fasting (not eating) a minimum of 21 days a year and as a result I am in perfect health. and free from sickness and disease. So for those of you who feel like arguing, feel free…
But, “a man with an experience is not at the mercy of a man [or doctor] with an argument”.
