i agree. back in those days water used to be collected from wells, rivers, and other natural sources and preserved in clay pots. not only did it keep the water cool, but it also helped preserve the minerals.

i guess water today is distilled because of the high level of toxins and industrialisation that is present in our environment. problem-reaction-solution in a small way? i think so

Personally i use a reverse osmosis machine fitted under the sink which filters tap water.
I assume the water is clean but it is also likely to leech minerals from the drinker to a certain extent as well as poisons and waste.
So the trick is to add a calcite feeder to the water before it goes into the tank.
This makes the water slightly alkaline and prevents it from leeching calcium.

Using the correct fluoride free toothpaste also comes in handy.
Another thing what i do is fill up an empty mineral water bottle and drink from this. That way you can make sure you drink the right amount of water every day.

Going back to cleft_asunder, firstly i am very glad you do post these topics because it is only from talking with enlightened people like yourselves that i learn stuff which might be good for me. And hopefully vice versa.
I used to buy distilled water too, it is crap.
There is no guarantee that the machines they use dont contaminate the water, remember the Dasani scandel when it was found to have cancer causing benzine in it.

Water is supposed to have energy.
Distilled water even if it is totally clean is DEAD water.
Water flowing in a river is alive with oxygen.

I dont know if the RO water is any good but i have been drinking and cooking with it since 2002. I have not visited the doctor nor have i missed a day from work since before that to be honest, but i am sure it is good.

oxygenating water is simple enough though, just agitate it.

How do you know distilled water was robbing you, cleft?

hey simplify

i guess the actual definiton of an ayurvedic rasayani[or rasayana] would be 'that which enters the essence', or in other words, that which promotes good health and longevity and negates ill health and/or disease. they are mainly derived from certain spices and herbs in ayurveda that are considered vital for health. you have rasayanis for the skin, for digestion, for the mind, for the organs and for general well being.

when it comes to water, ayurveda advises one to boil it and add certain rasayanas to replenish your body. it states that there are three main body types, namely kapha, pitta, and vata.

the predominant 'elements' in people who have a kapha type body have are water and earth, and they generally have larger body mass and an 'easy' disposition. it is advised that kapha types drink warm water coz this reduces the toxic buildup to which the kapha type skin is prone. some rasayanis advised for these individuals are ginger root, basil leaves, and cloves.

pitta category people are dominated by the element of fire. they [usually] have medium frames with fair, sensitive skin, a hearty appetite, a sharp mind, and tend to be very sensitive to the sun/heat. [im not sure but i think this applies to fair/white skinned people ] unlike kapha types, pitta people should preferably drink cool water (and NOT during meals). rasayanis advised for pittas are indian sarsaparilla powder, crushed or powdered cumin and coriander seeds, and a pinch of liqorice powder.

vata types should drink room temperature water. they usually have dry skin and i guess water which isn't too cold helps hydrate it. it helps if vatas use rasayanis such as fennel seeds, indian ashwagandha root powder and whole root liqorice powder.


in india you get these rasayanis either in powdered and/or liquid form. if you wanna follow this according to your body type you should alternate it with normal boiled [not distilled] water (there's no need to drink 10 glasses of rasayani water; just a bit works wonders) so in our building, those who wish to follow this 'routine' have the option of getting the required solution in their tap water.

i know people today don't have the time to mix these rasayanis in their drinking water, but it has helped me a great deal. it doesn't affect the taste of water that much, in fact it's lovely and ayurveda also puts forth that the aroma from these ingredients is very important; the fragrance helps in clearing the internal channels.

i guess the most important point id like to state is that while these therapies are a valuable aid in cleansing the body, it would be most beneficial if one follows the ayurvedic principles of diet. i dont have the time to follow an ayurvedic diet so this is just good enough for me.

if you need to know more about other rasayanis, simplify, please feel free to pm.

A lot of misinformation in this thread!

Distilled water does a body fantastic for a cleanse. I wouldn't have it in my system unless the conditions are appropriate.

Certainly avoid fluoride laced water.

fluoride laced water is very harmful, but if distilled water suits you fine go ahead. i guess some people just dont take to it.

you need animal dna to replicate your own mammalian dna.

read the rat thread, vegans die and become weak.

Awesome logic I'd say.
So every bird eats bird dna, every other mammal eats mammal dna.

That's not what the logic is. It should read you need animal protein to replicate your human DNA.

I'm not all too sure of that.

We need some experienced vegans to answer that.

that's simply illogical. and no we don't.

my entire family has been vegan since birth. they should have all died by now. my great granma is alive and kicking at 98.

oh, and ive become one too. used to eat meat and all that, gave it up a couple of months back for health reasons mostly.. and im healthier than ever.

and if animals needed other species' dna to replicate their own, the whole planet would be eating each others' heads off.

stewart swerdlow's stuff has been questioned numerous times. check out the 'stewart swerdlow- fraud?' thread.

also check out the 'if you eat meat, you're a satanist' thread. yeah, i know the title's way off, blame the op, but there are some very good points in there [scientific and logical ones, not religious or anti-satanic shit].

anyway, to each his own. i guess being a vegan or not would depend on how your body takes to it. same with meat.

peace be with you.

You aren't a good case study, when we are growing up is when food effects our development the most. I think that animal products are more crucial the younger we are. That's why breast milk is so important, we need tons of fat to feed our growing minds.

Distilled water... I think it's fine as long as you consume sea salt. Everything and more that distillation takes out, mabee a bit too much salt but i dunno.

Really though, I think we shouldn't focus as much on what kind of water to drink but what we replace water with. I think fermented beverages are much more suited for healthy human consumption. Esspecially when we are thirsty during or after mastication.
