I agree with Celeste regarding distilled water. I work at a fab where DI
water is used in the processing (deionized so it is 100% pure H2O) and it is
actually dangerous to handle this water with bare hands as it will leach out
all skin oils, minerals, etc. The water is basically "starving" and will
draw the things it has in a natural state directly from your skin and even
Therefore, it never made sense to me to drink distilled water as it will
draw minerals from your body that your body needs.

Well, Maxwell, I'm not a doctor. Not even close. But I have certainly read
from several different sources, from several different angles, that
distilled water, having been deprived of its minerals, leaches minerals out
its surroundings the first chance it has.
That sounds to me like you'd be paying big bucks for a mineral rich raw diet
(I'm assuming you're referring to big-ticket sea foods, fancy dried berries
from far away places, and the like), only to 'waste' those minerals on
drinking mineral water. :)
Do I have it all figured out? Nooooo! I drink filtered tap water. Tastes
fine to me.
I know deep down that probably the very best, at least for me, would be
eating water-rich foods and nibbling on spring flowers bejeweled with
In the meantime, I must confess that I often enjoy a big, salty salad and
then about an hour later I'm thirsty for a few glasses of filtered water...
What do others think? I know there has been discussion of water sources in
the message archives at www.rawportland.org... I guess just like anything,
the key is what feels right to our inner selves. If I'm thirsty, good water
has a sweet taste that it doesn't when I'm drinking 'because I'm supposed
to' or if it's from a less than ideal source. That lets me know I should

I'm looking into getting a Lab Water Distiller for home use. I want to
start consuming only Distilled water along with my mineral rich raw
food diet. What do you think about drinking ONLY distilled water?
Good idea or Bad idea?
