You may want to think twice before you reach for that bottled of water labeled "Distilled" thinking you're doing a body good! The distillation process of water removes minerals, organisms, and chemicals. The dangers of any water that has had the minerals removed is nutrient depletion. Because it contains no minerals, when consumed it tends to attract minerals AND toxins to balance with the other body fluids. It pulls heavy metals out of long-term storage but does not help your body excrete them. So now they are mobilized and may end up being picked up by brain cells or other nervous system tissue. Uh oh!
Bottom line...pure water is unnatural and does not exist in nature! It is man-made and our cells simply do not accept it as they have no use for it. Regular consumption can lead to mineral deficiencies, especially among those who may already be slightly deficient.
