Drinking Distilled Water
Drinking Distilled Water during a detox program helps to cleanse your kidneys, bladder and bloodstream since it is a natural chelator.
Distilled water is water that has been boiled in an apparatus called "still "and then recondensed in a cooling unit ("condenser") to return the liquid state. The distillation is used to purify water.
Dissolved contaminants such as salts are left behind in the boiling container as the water vapor rises.
Very elegant stills can selectively condense (liquefy) water from other volatile substances, but most of the distillation processes allow the transport of at least some volatility and very little non-volatile material that is transported into the stream of water vapor, as bubbles burst at the surface of the boiling water.
Pure water is, by definition, slightly acidic and with a pH around 5.8. The reason is that distilled water dissolves carbon dioxide from the air until it is in dynamic equilibrium with the atmosphere. This means that the dissolved amount balances the amount coming out of solution. The total amount of CO2 in water is determined by the concentration in the atmosphere. The dissolved carbon dioxide reacts with water to form carbonic acid at the end.
Once consumed, distilled water delivers inorganic minerals rejected by the cells and tissues out of the body.
This water is beneficial also for cooking, because foods such as rice, pasta and beans can absorb chemicals from unpurified water.
Mineral drops can be added to distilled water. Simply add 1/4 teaspoon of mineral drops to every 5 gallons of water.
However, if you are taking juices, you probably do not have to worry about minerals because these juices will supply you with more minerals than many glasses of spring water.
To increase the detoxification process I suggest you to add 1 tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar or some lemon juice to distilled water.
For people who are intensely detoxifying for a short period of time, drinking distilled water may be useful in terms of making sure that all toxins are eliminated for the short term. So, if your goal is temporary detoxification, distilled water works beautifully to help clean out the colon. Eight to ten glasses a day (depending on our size and activity level) of clean, distilled water are suggested.
You can get distilled water at grocery stores and supermarkets.
Alternatively, you can buy a Water Distiller such as Waterwise 9000
