The importance of distilled water for the human body.

Updated: Mar 17

Water is a tasteless, odorless and colorless substance in its pure state according to standard scientific definitions. Yes, contrary to the promoters of bottled water, pure water is scientifically tasteless. The difference that one detects in tastes of water comes from the presence of different mineral ions that the water molecules contain. However, even the “tasteless” pure water can be seen to have a taste after one has become used to drinking water that has a distinctive flavor present, from the various mineral ions within it.

Water is found in many forms in our environment from water vapor and clouds to waves and icebergs in the sea, glaciers on the mountain and aquifers in the ground. Earth’s atmosphere contains 102,000 cubic miles of water equal to 0.031% of the 326 million cubic miles of water on the Earth itself. Water is constantly moving from one form to another by recycling through evaporation, precipitation, and runoff in what is called “the water cycle.”

Likewise, there is a water cycle within the internal environment of the human body. It was Dr. Carey Reams that found how important water actually was to the body’s internal environment and mechanisms.

Without water, life cannot exist. Dr. Reams would reinforce how vital water was to biologic life by demonstrating the significance of the amount of water required by different species as compared to humans. A 500-pound steer, for example, requires about 25 gallons of water per day to maintain its life. This works out to a 42% water requirement per pound of weight. Much of the water the steer drinks leaves as heat through vapor form via the skin because of the large skin surface of the steer. Plantlife requires three times its weight in water per day. That represents a 300% water requirement per pound of weight. On the other hand, a human weighing 100 pounds, requires only about 1.5 quarts of water per day and this works out to only 3.2% water requirement per pound of weight. Yes, the human lives on the highest frequency of all biological life on earth but requires the least amount of water to exist of all the forms of biological life. This is one technical reason why Dr. Reams would say that the human is the hardest to kill of all species of life on earth. It is for this reason, according to Reams, humans need to pay particular attention to their water drinking habits. Yes, because our water requirement is what it is we are often distracted by our goals and lifestyles, thus through negligence, we commonly abuse our water requirements to the detriment of our health and wellbeing.

Dr. Reams was the first person to scientifically understand how and why water is so critical to human life and health. It was his discovery of the role of the liver in the overall electrochemical nutrition of the body that first disclosed to him how vital water was to liver health. To understand what Reams discovered, about the liver’s nutritional requirements, is to know that the liver requires three primary substances to maintain its own vital functions. Those three substances, in order of importance, are Water, Oxygen, and Calcium. Thus, the value of water, oxygen, and calcium, to the liver, can be compared to a three-legged stool. If one or more of the three legs are not in proportion to the others, i.e. missing and/or deficient, the stool cannot stand or function correctly. In other words, when the water requirement of the liver is not met, the liver’s function is constrained. Why is this significant? Because the liver is the organ that manufacturers all of the beginning molecules that the body relies on to replace, rebuild and maintain all of its other tissues, glands, and organs. Limiting water limits the liver and subsequently its ability to nourish the body.

From a biological standpoint, Dr. Reams’ research led him to recognize many distinct properties of water that are critical for the maintenance and proliferation of life that set it apart from other substances. Primary in importance, among these properties that Reams learned about water, is that water must be the carrier of energy “on-frequency.” That is to say, water was designed to take on and carry electromagnetic frequency in order to promote and enhance biologic energy exchange and storage vital to high-level wellness of the human organism. This is what led Reams to understand why the best water for human consumption is water that is not only pure but also wet and high in energy. Oh yes, water can be pure, but not necessarily wet and high energy. According to Reams, water can be pure and yet remain dry. Dry, meaning the water molecule contains very little energy. If you know what it is like to bathe in hard water versus soft water, you will know what Reams was referring to when he used the terms, wet or dry water.

Water is known as the universal solvent. But Reams found that water must be more than a universal solvent in order to function at its optimum in the human’s liver and body in general. In order for water to best carry energy, on the human frequency, it must be able to concentrate the electrostatic lines of magnetic flux. That is to say, in the electrical field of the human body, water must be able to store and carry electrical energy on the human frequency for sustaining optimum levels of mineral energy release, transfer, and storage. The ideal water, to allow this process to occur in the human body, is steam distilled water. Why steam distilled water? Because its molecules, being free of impurities, are recognized by scientists as a good “dielectric.” This simply means that distilled water has the ability to act as an insulator and storage for the ionic electromagnetic energy it picks up. In doing so, it reduces the force between the ionic energy charges it carries so it can carry more of them. In other words, steam distilled water has the ability to carry or take on more ionic energy on the human frequency than any other type of water because of its unique molecular structure.

Another factor unique to water is its ability to pick up and retain electromagnetic fields of materials it flows through or touches in its travels through the mantel of the earth. In simple terms, water has a memory. Whether drinking water is sourced from a spring, well, river, creek or pond, that water will contain a combined memory of all the electromagnetic fields of all the unique rock and soil it has traveled through. This cluttered electromagnetic memory prevents the water from truly acting as a proper energy-carrying substance when entering the body. However, the process of distillation, which is heating water from a liquid phase to a steam phase and then cooling it back to a liquid phase, erases the water’s memory. Yes, the process of distillation erases the water’s memory. This allows the water to function uninhibited in its ability to carry and transfer electromagnetic energy within the body’s organs and tissues. The distillation process changes water into an optimum energy carrier. The best form of water for hydrating and feeding your body’s tissues and organs.

What about mineral waters? According to what Dr. Reams taught, mineral waters are the poorest and least beneficial to healthy body chemistry. This is because the mineral being carried in the mineral water molecule blocks the molecule from acting as distilled water molecules described above. Likewise, various tap and well waters also act like mineral waters as far as the body is concerned. The minerals they carry, even though less than that in so-called mineral water, interferes with the water molecules ability to act as an energy storage and carrying system. Some have likened drinking mineral, tap and well water to washing dishes in dirty water.

As for reverse osmosis water, it may be fairly pure water, depending on how the exchange filters are working, but it has not gone through the heating, vaporization and condensation process as steam distilled water and therefore its electromagnetic memory has not been erased. RO water does not possess the high-energy carrying potential of distilled water. In other words, it too cannot function as perfectly as distilled water for carrying and dispersing the electromagnetic mineral energy throughout the body’s organs and tissues to satisfy the body’s biochemical needs and requirements.

So how much-distilled water should a person drink? Dr. Reams taught that one can determine the amount of distilled water they need to consume per day by dividing their weight by 2 and converting the answer to ounces. For example, a 100-pound person would drink (100 ÷2 = 50) or approximately 50 ounces (1.5 quarts) of extra water throughout the day other than that obtained through food and additional beverages. Herbal teas can be counted in as part of water intake, however. In order for the liver to make the best use of the calculated daily water needs, it should be divided into at least 20 increments so 1 increment can be consumed every half-hour during 10 hours of the day from 6-7 am to 4-5 pm.

Some people will do even better by dividing their calculated water intake into 24 increments to be consumed every half-hour over 12 hours. Sometimes, we reduce the calculated water needs by 20% if there is a concern for an individual over- drinking because of a certain lifestyle or health challenges. On the other hand, during physical exertion or hot weather, there may be a need to increase the calculated water need by a certain amount. The only way to know, accurately, how much water a person needs to consume is “go by the numbers.” That was Dr. Reams’ favorite expression when pointing out how the RBTI urine and saliva test results (the numbers) will provide the perfect answers when consulted.
