Are You Drinking the Wrong Type of Water?
by Winston W. J. Kao
Most Americans drink reverse osmosis or distilled water in spite of the fact that many advanced European countries advise against it! In America, specifically, there is a tremendous amount of contradictory information about drinking water. We will separate the truth from false data so you can make an informed decision about your health. We’ll start with the most poorly known subject: distilled water.
Did you know that there are 4 different kinds of distilled water, two of which are very healthy, and the other two are UNHEALTHY. Don’t feel bad if you didn’t know this – most doctors and health practitioners don’t know this either. As a matter of fact, they were shocked when they found out! This tells you that the Universities do not teach this fact.
Why do many Europeans refuse to drink these waters? Because they understand the detrimental effects of these “hungry waters” due to their ability to leach out minerals from the body. Drinking hungry waters results in the instant leaching of minerals from your body to satisfy the water’s extreme hunger, lowering your cellular integrity, and resulting in the breakdown of your immune system. In addition, because these waters are missing “alkaline minerals”, the water is highly acidic, which makes your body more acidic. These waters leach the minerals out immediately and later consumption of minerals will NOT make up the damage.
What are the common types of distilled water? The first one is a healthy low temperature distillation with a low surface tension. It usually has minor amounts of minerals. This is commonly known as rainwater and was one of the best waters to drink. Even though this water has extremely low mineral content because of many other factors such as hydrogen peroxide or more appropriately, hydroxyl ions (-OH) and minor negative charge, the rainwater does not leach minerals out and it is one of the healthiest waters to drink. Note how a single rainstorm will green up a forest or lawn much faster than all the other watering. Saving rainwater and then running it through a carbon filter to remove the VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) is a very necessary step these days.
The other more common distilled water is the commercially available high temperature distillation process, which results in a high surface tension. This type of distilled water is “Hungry water.” This is the type of water that seriously leaches out the minerals from one’s body. This is good laboratory water and should not be drunk.
When testing pH in the water, always use a pH meter to test water because pH strips require minerals, which Reverse Osmosis & Distilled waters don’t much or any of. Therefore you will not get an accurate reading from pH strips.
About Reverse Osmosis Water
If you test Reverse Osmosis water remember you must only use a pH meter not strips and liquids as they require minerals to respond. These “Hungry waters” have little to no minerals to respond correctly. You will find that these are acid water, with a 5.5 to 6.4 pH.
So it is not surprising that so many of us are too acidic and are prematurely aging. While most waters when left on a shelf will first turn green (growing blue green algae) the RO water, when left on a shelf, will choose to grow black fungus as it’s first choice. If you look at an RO system, after the water is fully cleaned and is stored in the reservoir tank, it still has to have a carbon block filter which they call a taste filter to block the black fungus from coming out and of course to get rid of that bitter fungus taste. Do you think that could possibly be a good water to drink?
We have a holistic approach to water filtration. We believe in only taking out the fluoride, chlorine, chloramines and many other toxic chemicals in our drinking water without taking out the good alkaline minerals in the water, thus preserving the many vital health-giving properties water has, as well as the vital properties that water uses to remove our naturally occurring waste products. This is a function many manufacturers overlook when designing a water filtration system.
