Distilled water

The Importance Of Distilled Water On Aging

By Chester Handley

As our body begins to age, there are several things that happen. Cell don't produce as well, the body doesn't digest as well, the body does not absorb as well & the body does not eliminate as well.

And areas of the body begin to feel pain & have sore spots that we never had before. One of the major causes of pain is the over consumption of grain in older people. It is softer, easier to eat & appears to be more easily digested. 

Well the true reality is that it is no benefit to the aging body at all & leaves an acidic residue that gets deposited in the joints which is the number one reason for arthritic pain.

Many years ago when I was doing research on distilled water, I discovered that contrary to all the stories out there, distilled water does not take a single thing out of the body that the body needs.

It never takes anything out of a cell. Everything that is cellularly locked remains within the body, but it is the greatest tool in the world for cleaning out the bloodstream, which is the only function water really has...to wash out, cleanse & purify the bloodstream. 

Remember that the bloodstream is primarily an organ of transport. People think of it as a liquid rather than an organ, but it is an organ. It transports nutrients, oxygen & red blood cells throughout the body & carries away waste products & carbon dioxide.

Distilled water has been evaporated into a vapor, split apart into a molecule of hydrogen & oxygen, turning them into a gas that rises up in to the atmosphere, then cooled back down & condensed back in to water.

The same process happens in a distillery when it distils water. It heats up the water into a gas, all the impurities are left behind, all the waste products are left behind, then it is condensed & turned back into pure water & becomes the ultimate pure water because of one very important factor that is not present in any other water...it is molecularly unstable. It means that when it goes in your bloodstream it breaks apart easier & latches on to debris, waste products & unwanted materials that are floating round in your bloodstream.

It is also one of the best ways there is for reducing blood pressure. I made up two charts years ago when I was doing my studies on body detoxification with distilled water, from 1865 to 1965. In 1865, diseases that ranked in the high 30's and low 40's became the first four killers in 1965...& they were all cardiovascular. I then made another chart from 1865 to 1965 to show the reduction in the use of drinking rainwater. The two charts were virtually biometrically opposite. As people quit drinking rainwater, cardiovascular diseases went up. When the blood vascular system is clean you have less headaches, you have less pain, you have more oxygen & nutrients available for the body & more healing capacity for the body.

It has been almost twenty years ago now that a man came down to my office that had arthritis so bad he could hardly get out of a straight backed chair. His pain was excruciating. We put him on the detoxification program, took him off of all grain in his diet, instructed him to eat only fruit, vegetables, protein & meat products, & put him on distilled water every half hour while he was awake. It is hard to believe a month later this same man was out working in his garden having the time of his life.

I cannot emphasize enough the importance of drinking distilled water for cleansing the blood stream, for reducing arthritic pain & lowering blood pressure. It has also been known to reduce cholesterol & triglycerides. In fact, the only effect on the body is health. 

There are rules of thumb on how much water to drink. The rule of thumb on a normal day is one half your body weight in ounces per day. If you are sweating & exerting yourself you should drink more, not less. We have a tendency to grab pop, coffee, Kool-Aid & juices, but we need to get back to the habit of grabbing distilled water.

To give you an example of what this means, if you are a man & you weigh 200 pounds, you should be drinking a minimum of 100 ounces of distilled water throughout the day. There is an interesting side note for people that like to study. Job, which is the oldest book of the bible, I believe it is in the 36th chapter, said God took up the water, distilled it, & poured it out abundantly on man. The logical argument is who knows better what we need than the creator, & he gave us distilled water'.

"Distilled water is safe to drink & should have no adverse effects on your health. Distillation merely removes most of the dissolved materials, which are found in all natural waters". ---Raymond H. Bishop, Jr. M.D. Major General, Commander - Medical Corps. Department of the Army, U.S.Army Health Services Command

"There is nothing about distilled water that would make it harmful for the body. It may be helpful to remember that distilled water is the only water available for crews of Naval vessels at sea." ---Frank N. Hepburn, Chief, Nutrient Data Research Branch, United States Department of Agriculture, Consumer Nutrition Division

"I have been drinking distilled water since 1981, almost half of my life, and given the choice, would not drink any other type of water. I recommend distilled water to all my friends and relatives and would not do so if I didn't think it is one of the very healthiest things a person can do. After a full body scan, the doctor told me that I have the cleanest arteries of anyone he has examined of my age. And I have never had a broken bone in my body. (Contrary to quack assertions that calcium and other minerals are "leached" from the body!)". ---Nick Pavlica, Director, H2o Labs, Ltd.


An excerpt from 'Distilled Water Cure' by Otoman Hanish MD DD (printed 1964)

"Often times the blood becomes tainted & needs to be purified. There is only one way of washing the blood and that is by means of dead water, undiluted water, distilled water which contains no life organism, chemicals or similar substances. It has to be dead water, i.e. water condensed from steam. Distilled water, by virtue of its weight: effects a one pound pressure upon the minerals and acids which clog the bloodstream; it presses them right through the system. Even in a short time it eliminates appreciable quantities of impurities from the blood. There is no hard and fast rule as to how to take The Cure; it may be taken quickly or slowly, hot or cold. It is left entirely to the individual to decide according to temperament and physical condition. The main thing is to obtain the necessary pressure and to ensure that two cups are always taken at one time - a total of seven pints per day. This is quite easy of accomplishment if the quantity is systematically regulated as follows:

1. On awakening take two cups.

2. Another two cups shortly before breakfast.

3. Two cups in the middle of the morning.

4. Two more 20 to 30 minutes before the mid-day meal.

5. Two cups in the middle of the afternoon.

6. Another two cups 20 to 30 minutes before dinner.

7. The last two cups in the evening shortly before retiring.

If desired, two more portions may be taken one, two hours after lunch, and the other two hours after dinner. As regards to eating and drinking, it is a matter of individual choice. Nothing is forbidden and there is no need for fasting nor privation. One may eat and drink according to individual needs. One eats only moderately after having taken two cups of distilled water. The principle of The Cure must be maintained, i.e., seven times per day, two cups of water at one time - making sure to take two cups shortly before each meal.

It will soon be discovered that even at breakfast time one eats very moderately after having taken two cups of distilled water. After three days one observes a loss of taste for this and that and quite different desires assert themselves for dishes which one may have previously disliked. Day by day one eats less: soon only half and then only a third of what one normally takes. After three days the complexion becomes clearer and more rosy and a feeling of lightness is experienced. After two to three weeks, the eyes become clearer and more penetrating; one is able to think more clearly and one becomes less easily irritated. After three weeks, the thinner ones become a little stouter and the stouter ones become a little thinner. In case of sufferings of an acute nature, The Cure need last but three weeks; in other cases five weeks. If The Cure be resorted to for from 5 to 12 weeks in succession, 65 percent of all ailments become eliminated, and the other 35 percent will be eliminated if one continues after ward with a correct diet. By the time one has almost completed The Cure, one has become so accustomed to the drinking of distilled water that one likes and takes regularly a couple of cups before each evening meal. The adoption of this habit wards off all disease. The body is already composed of 85 percent water, and by adding thereto two cups of water regularly each evening, all acids and crystals are eliminated there from in a natural way and the bloodstream is not burdened thereby.

Three highly important effects are assured through The Water Cure:

1. The blood becomes washed and made free of all foreign substances.

2. It ejects a proper working of the individual organs and thereby that of the whole organism.

3. It provides a youthful freshness in a measure that often youth does not possess as the whole glandular system becomes normalised, thereby increasing the brain power, and life becomes more joyous.

Always remember, therefore, to resort at interval to The Water Cure. If feeling unwell, start again for a few days or even weeks. Take The Water Cure as a serious treatment for five to seven weeks every three, five, seven, nine years, as it purifies the whole organism, and, becoming thus renewed, continuous progress is assured. Distilled water is therefore of the greatest value for the individual as well as humanity at large. After a few weeks on The Cure, one learns to choose the food that nature requires to build up the system; one begins to live anew. Even after three days the purification and renovation of the bloodstream is noticeable. One does not necessarily gain or lose weight by taking The Cure. The purer the blood, the more normal the cells of the body become. If one gains too much weight one simplifies the diet by discarding butter and oils. The great advantage of The Water Cure is that one need ask no questions; one just takes it, everything comes lay itself so long as one resorts thereto. As a result of The Water Cure, one begins to think for oneself instead of asking questions, one becomes a thinking human being. The Cure is so simple one cannot make a mistake, not even a mistake in diet. The wonderful feature of it is that no efforts are required and yet the maximum of benefit is obtained. Moreover, one is sure of the expected result, whether one resorts to it for a weak stomach, indigestion, dyspepsia, constipation or a liver which does not function normally, or because the kidneys are affected; for the lungs, nerves, heart trouble, change of life or for growths.

"All ailments have to give way to Distilled Water, and in the ordinary way nothing needs to be added thereto."

"Distilled water is the purest form available. Distilled water helps to excrete excessive heavy metals from the body." ---Vicki Glassburn, from "Who Killed Candida?" 1991

"If properly maintained, distillers provide a constant supply of high-quality water. Filters and reverse osmosis units, on the other hand, are at their best when first installed, and efficiency in veritably declines with use." ---Jonathon King, author of "Troubled Water"

Distilled Water in the Bible?

The water God chooses to pour abundantly upon man is distilled water. JOB 36:27

"For he draws up the drops of water, he distills his mist in the rain which the skies pour down, and drop upon man abundantly".


It's important that you do not confuse these with the idea that the distilled water is making you ill. When you read the different doctors describe how distilled water melts garbage inside of you, make sure you understand that this translates into real world events. As in, garbage will start to pour out of you! It has to come out! But better out than in, so this means, you will have detox symptoms. Everybody is different as to how they detox, where they detox, and what they detox. It all depends on what you have ingested and inhaled your whole life and what routes your body chooses to eject the garbage. It could be...

Rashes , Vomiting , Diarrhoea , Headaches , Flu-like symptoms , Nausea , Heavy sweating , Pimples , Bad breath , Body odour. These are all GOOD things, the garbage is leaving. Know that is only temporary. You can dial in the speed too. If it's too much detox for you, back off on the solvent. Then come back to it again when you feel stronger.

Remember-  when they say this is the greatest solvent known to the human body, they're not joking!
