I know this doesn’t fits under “alternative” medicine, but it still seems the best place to put this.
For over six years now I’ve been drinking bottled water (97% of time ;)), bulk from a dispenser, but still osmosis filtered and ultraviolet purified.
since the previous place I lived had lots sulfur in the water, stinky showers, yuck.
(Although the trade off there was free natural gas thanks to a couple wells drilled on the property.)
And the cabin we’re in now has very hard water, not quite the yuck factor of the sulfur, but you can’t drink it just the same.
I never thought about it much, but recently I became aware of how completely the mineral content get’s eliminated from our bottled water.
But, just like a coffee maker not liking distilled water, the body doesn’t like mineral free water.
I’ve been looking around at the plethora of mineral supplements and some trace mineral drops
(from Trace Minerals Research - ConcenTrace, Mineral Drops).
I rarely take vitamin supplements, hardly ever any prescription drugs, Motrin only occasionally, so I’m not up on all that jazz.
Anyone have any experiences or thoughts on supplementing the body to compensate for mineral depleted water?
What’s to watch out for?
