The purest is distilled by humidification.
its cool to read someone who has a passion for water and also recognises its "holy" quality. on the subject of distillation being the best to drink, i do have to disagree, somewhat reluctantly. firstly, from personal experience, i would say there is a big difference between distilled tapwater and say distilled water from a stream. there are many chemicals in tap water, including chlorine, that evaporate and condense with the water, hence the inclusion of post activated carbon filtration added to these systems. i can say that without this activated carbon addition the water, as you may know, tastes many times more chlorinated than ordinary tap as it is without the alkaline minerals that "neutralise" to some degree the acidity. i believe that the activated carbon does still not remove all the impurities as was tested out by myself when distilling mineral water for comparison. it tasted substantially better. though the amount of impurities is reduced significantly by distilling tapwater there lies an important difference with what remains, 1)there is no longer alkaline minerals to neutralise them and 2) there is a greater
ability to penetrate deeper into the bodies tissues and expose the bodies cells to these impurities. of course distilled waters' ability to penetrate deep due to the absence of bulky minerals is why its a great short term
detoxer, provided imo this is not from a municapal source. for me the spring seems to be natures way, though distillation copies rain where impurities are absent, i think this would of been, at most, only ever been an occassional supply.
having multiple chemical sensitivity its unfortunately very important for me to avoid all chemical contact but as well as this i can be a measuring stick for what is pure and what is not. after giving up distilled tap water (by chance) i had a significant and even dramatic improvement in my health. of course others may not notice this as much but i still feel that chlorine deep into the tissues even in smaller doses is not preferable.
also testing for impurities in watere can be, i believe, somewhat ambiguous. some figures may relate to the reduction of totally dissolved solids which include non-toxic minerals. as well as this i think i'm right in guessing
that that some imputities undergo changes when they come into contact with alkaline minerals i.e. become less harmful (by degree) and that this is not possible with the impurites that remain in distilled tapwater, which become more significant because of this factor. that said, although distilled water from a natural source tastes much better than distilled municipal water i still would not drink it on its own. viktor schauberger calls it a "juvenile" water that has a nascent quality. i am aware of the growing belief of the apparent health benefits of distilled water but have come to the conclusion that they are incorrect imo, though it is still probably better than straight tapwater.
i found this page which is hugely informative on the subject: Viktor Schauberger; the power of water
here's an excerpt:
So, lets take a look at what Viktor Schauberger reckons, when it comes to determining what kind of water is good to drink:
Distilled water - Distilled water is evaporated to steam then condensed as a pure fluid; it appears chemically clean. In this state, water by it's intrinsic nature, will draw to it's self anything it can dissolve in order to fulfill a basic function...that of a carrier of substances. Distilled water will only remain so, as long as it is not given the opportunity to make contact with soluble materials.
Drinking distilled water as a regular routine is dangerous!! It acts as a purgative and will strip trace elements and minerals from your body!! Don't buy too much of this stuff at the shops and don't use a distiller to drink from...you have been warned!
Rain water - With an unpolluted atmosphere, rainwater is the purest naturally occurring water in nature, but unfortunately much of our globe no longer has this occur as acid rain is a direct consequence of our ignorant ways. Like distilled water, rainwater is unsuitable as drinking water and should also be avoided over a long term basis. Rainwater could be seen as a young adolescent that has yet to go through the maturing process the earth provides.
Juvenile water - This water comes from the ground, often from great depths and forced upwards (maybe appearing as a geyser) or pumped to the surface as from a deep bore. It is still lacking it's quota of minerals and is deficient in dissolved carbons. As drinking water goes, it's marginal at best.
Surface water - It has contact with the earth so the opportunity of it to dissolve materials is present. Keep in mind that pollutants with in a particular area are definite minus points. Surface water is also generally exposed to direct sunlight, and when collected into and stored in an open dam, the water's energy value becomes damaged by the influences of the heat and light. Note: drinking water should never be exposed to direct sunlight...!!
Groundwater - Retrieved from the ground, this water is getting pretty good as it generally has a high dissolved mineral content. In it's journey above the impervious sub stratum it may appear as seepage springs in gullies, or as shallow wells.
Spring water - The prime source of vitalizing drinking water. It is ripe in minerals, trace elements and dissolved carbons. It's high state of vitality is seen in it's shimmering energetic bluish color, no other water looks like this. The water rises from the earth with the qualities of levitation, it is very cool and will approach the anomaly point of +4 C. The streams they create are collection points for drinking water, and provided the stream is not contaminated by agriculture and human habitation, it remains very drinkable, well worth the finding...
Viktor invented a machine that could use most any unpolluted water and process it into spring water. With this machine he acquired the name "The Water Wizard" because the water he produced had powerful healing qualities. Viktor was able to achieve the remission of cancer for many people, but he soon came into opposition with the authorities who accused him of charlatanism and being unqualified to practice healing. His machine was confiscated and destroyed...!!!
how much water you need if your taking medication or drinking coffee (shes a a bit of a starchild and fun to watch:
YouTube - Holistic Secrets with Rachel Avalon
on the topic of revitalising water:
All living organisms emit ultra weak light known as biophoton light emission. Dr. David Schweitzer's research of the Original Water Revitalizer shows a dramatic increase in biophoton light emission in revitalized water as well as a profound change in the structure of water. This research documents the amazing abilities of the Original Water Revitalizer to both re-structure and energize water. See the photo documentation below!

there was a cool video on youtube that showed how blessing water caused it to form complex and beautiful patterns but alas....
