Pure Distilled Water
Distillation is a water purification process that uses a heat source to vaporize water and separate it from contaminants and other undesirable elements commonly found in ground and surface water. Distillation heats raw (untreated) water until the water reaches its boiling point and begins to vaporize. The heat is then kept at a constant temperature to maintain water vaporization while prohibiting other undesirable elements from vaporizing. Water has a lower boiling point than salt and other mineral sediments. Removing these mineral sediments is very beneficial, as these minerals can cause health problems down the road. Dr. Charles Mayo from Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota says,
“Water Hardness” is the underlying cause of many, if not all, of the diseases resulting from poisons in the intestinal tract. These(hard minerals) pass from the intestinal walls and get into the lymphatic system, which delivers all of it’s products to the blood, which in turn, distributes to all parts of the body. This is the cause of much human disease.
“Water Hardness” is inorganic minerals in solution(in water). When these minerals enter the intestines in drinking water, there is an immediate reaction between them and the fats, oils and fatty acids present, causing precipitation of inorganic calcium, magnesium, iron and so on—to form new, insoluble compounds.”
This process also separates the water molecules from microscopic, disease-causing organisms. Once all of the water has vaporized, the vapor is led into a condenser, where, upon cooling, the water reverts to the liquid form and runs into a receiving container. The remaining elements, whose boiling point was too high to permit vaporization, remain in the original container and constitute the sediment (Holland, Siqueiros, Santoyo, Heard, & Santoyo, 1999). Because the distillation process can never ensure a complete separation between water and other materials, it is often repeated one or more times with the treated water. Distilled water is best form of purification as it removes 99.9% of contaminants in every treatment.
