the myth regarding distilled water and nutrient/mineral loss is nonsense. Its not founded on anything but anecdotal propaganda. We are not meant to get our minerals from water, rather fruits, veggies and other foods with substantial quantities of them. The amounts in water are trivial. What's really important to look out for with water is ACIDITY. Most spring water is quite acidic depending on the source. Fluoride should be avoided at all costs as its quite simply a neuro-toxin. the reverse osmosis process creates a very acidic water as well. Maintaining proper pH balance in your body is VERY important and usually overlooked. It requires a balance of adic forming foods (proteins - amino 'acids') and alkaline foods like green veggies, and most fruits. There are a few things I focus very strictly on with my clients:
-pH of foods and body
-Inflammatory vs. anti-inflammatory balance of foods and body
-Digestion and making sure they eat nutrient, enzyme rich foods that do not strip the body of its digestive resources (like most grains do...)

With all the "medication" I have been given over the years it is by the grace of God that I am not braindead.

I drink only distilled water, or fiji. All the water out there, bottled or not, is so full of contaminants, not only the fluoride, but also prescription drugs as well. With everyone dumping pills into the water systems, the specs on the water around me is sad as ****, as the water districts publish a quaterly report.

I would say purified water over distilled as it has minerals in it. I will always go for tap water when I can because it isn't treated or comes from a factory in any way.
Just my opinion.

I understand that you should maintain an acid/base balance in your diet but many foods that you think of as acidic don't have a net acid effect in the blood while things that are usually seen as basic like dairy products, have an extremely high acid effect in the blood.
Therefor acidic water, like vinegar, wouldn't make your blood more acidic. It would likely make it less acidic or raise the pH.

Whether water has a slight acidity or alkalinity depends on the minerals that are naturally present in the water. Your acid/alkaline balance has much more to do with the foods that you eat. Concentrate on your diet and just make sure that you drink clean water.

Distilled water doesn't have minerals, but will this cause long-term health issues? Different experts have different opinion regarding this matter. What we know is that our bodies cannot stay healthy without minerals which are vital to our health.
So what did anti-distilled drinking water groups say? They're saying a lot of stuff to malign pure water and to make people no longer buy bottled pure water.
How does normal water get its minerals? Water is a natural solvent and in its natural reservoirs, it's composed of many impurities coming from both organic and inorganic matter. Rock sediments and decaying matter can add so much contaminant that renders water inappropriate for major human applications. Water should be treated before it can be usable in any way. Water treatment involves removal of a significant amount of impurity. One of the most reliable methods of treatment is distillation, which removes virtually all forms of contaminants, leaving water that is extremely pure.
Some bottled water products are actually distilled. So, now you know the difference between distilled and spring water. Now, manufacturers of distilled pure water should answer controversies regarding their priced pure water.

There are many commercials of bottled water. Some of them distilled, most of them purified.
Filtered water is actually the most basic form of cleansing water. Its utmost advantage is it helps reduce chlorine odor and taste. You can see this type of system in most appliances such as washing machines, coffee makers and refrigerators. However, some experts say it does not really get rid of most impurities that may be detrimental to health such as viruses. These things are too small to be filtered by an ordinary filtration system. This leads us to the purification process. This is the second best type of cleansing system. It helps get rid of those impurities that could not be removed by an ordinary filtration system. Viruses, cysts, and pesticides can be removed by this. Last but certainly not the least is the distillation process. This has been coined as the best way to render water clean. There are many companies today that provide distilled water. In this system, water is boiled in addition to filtering and purifying. This method will help get rid of any remaining contaminants and health threats in your water source. In that way, no other contaminant will be left surviving.
