Water, Water, Water…
So many to choose, it gets confusing
I came across this guide that may help bring some clarity to the subject…
Kinds of water
Purified water: Water that is physically processed to remove impurities (e.g., distillation, deionization, reverse osmosis, carbon filtration, etc.)
Distilled water: Water that is boiled and evaporated away from its dissolved minerals, and then the vapor is condensed.
Bottled Water: This water is typically from a spring or has gone through reverse osmosis before it is bottled. However, some brands are simply bottled tap water that may or may not have gone through any additional filtering.
Alkaline water: Water that has been separated into alkaline and acid fractions using electrolysis, which takes advantage of the naturally occurring electric charges found in the magnesium and calcium ions; in the drinking water industry.
Deionized or demineralized water: Water in which the mineral ions (salts such as sodium, calcium, iron, copper, chloride and bromide) have been removed by exposing it to electrically charged resins that attract and bind to the salts.
Hard and soft water: Hard water is any water containing an appreciable quantity of dissolved minerals; soft water is treated water in which the only cation (positively charged ion) is sodium.
Spring water: is considered to be some of the most healthful waters in the world because of the way it is structured. It is any natural situation where water flows to the surface of the earth from underground. Thus, a spring is a site where the aquifer surface meets the ground surface.
Any one you choose you will find healing so long as you drink water and lots of it!
So be like water my friends…
